Heed picked up an assist and three shots on goal in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Panthers. Heed has six assists in seven games in March, which is good production from the blue line. He matched his career high of 11 points with Thursday's helper, doing so in two fewer games than the 29 appearances it took him last year.
Heed assisted on the Sharks' first two goals in a 5-2 win over the Blackhawks on Sunday. Heed ended up with a plus-3 rating in the contest. For the season, the defenseman has eight points in 22 contests, five of which have come in his last five appearances. With only eight hits and 18 blocks this season, he doesn't do enough to generate fantasy interest in the vast majority of formats.
Heed opened the scoring with his second goal of the season in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Red Wings. The Sharks proceeded to yield three straight goals after Heed's opener, but a Joe Pavelski hat trick helped them keep pace in the Pacific. Heed went plus-3 and added four shots on goal in a game that pushed his point streak to three games. Heed has six points in 20 games this year, so the recent hot streak is a bit out of character for him. With only eight hits and 17 blocks this year, he doesn't typically contribute much in peripheral categories, either.
Heed registered an assist and logged 17:33 of ice time during Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Capitals. Heed now has helpers in back-to-back games, bringing him to one goal and five points in 19 contests. However, the 28-year-old defender will likely be scratched once Erik Karlsson (lower body) is eligible to return and therefore does not possess significant fantasy value at this time.
Heed (undisclosed) will return to the lineup for Saturday's game against Tampa Bay, NHL.com reports. Heed is expected to take on a prominent role Saturday, skating on the Sharks' third pairing and second power-play unit against the Lightning. The 27-year-old Swede has notched one goal in three appearances this season.
