Compher scored a goal on two shots in Friday's 1-0 win over the Ducks. Ducks defenseman Hampus Lindholm turned over the puck in the neutral zone, and Martin Kaut fed Compher for the only tally in the game. The goal snapped a five-game point drought for Compher, who is up to 26 points, 89 shots and a plus-11 rating in 57 outings this year. He's likely to continue in a middle-six role, with enough depth scoring to interest fantasy owners in deeper formats.
Compher has eight goals and 25 points with a plus-11 rating in 53 games this season. While the 24-year-old has a career best in the plus/minus and could reach a new career high in points, he's not shooting as often, which is hurting his value. He's averaging just 2.6 shot attempts and 1.5 shots on net per game this season. Each of the last two seasons, he's posted at least 2.9 shot attempts and 1.7 shots on goal per contest. Compher is healthy, so he could get close to his goal production from last season when he played just 66 games, but from a per-game perspective, Compher is experiencing a down season.
Compher provided an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Wild. The 24-year-old's helper was his 25th points of the season (eight tallies, 17 assists). Compher has added 79 shots, 43 blocks and a plus-11 rating in a bottom-six role, but he could see a boost in ice time if Nazem Kadri (lower body) ends up missing time after picking up an injury Sunday.
Compher recorded a shot on net, one hit and two blocks in a 4-0 victory over the Sharks on Thursday. Owners are hoping Compher does a bit more scoring during the second half, but that's unlikely to happen if he doesn't get more pucks to the net. Although he was doing better earlier in the month, Compher only has three shots on goal in the last three games and has seven goals and 23 points with a plus-11 rating this season.
Compher lit the lamp twice in a 5-3 loss to the Rangers on Tuesday. Despite scoring twice, Compher was a minus-1. This was his first multi-goal game of the campaign and moved him up to 21 points for the year, in 41 games. The 24-year-old has struggled to put the puck in the net as a whole, but Compher's latest performance is undeniably encouraging.
