Canucks' Brandon Sutter: Multi-point effort against Avalanche
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sutter scored his fifth goal of the season and had an assist in Tuesday's overtime loss to Colorado.

The Canucks suffered another loss, but Sutter was impressive, firing six shots on goal in 19:58 of ice time. The third-line center hadn't scored in over a month, but he's got 15 points in 39 games and remains a decent depth scorer. Sutter is more valuable to the Canucks than he is to fantasy goers, but the 29-year-old is still worth owning in some deep leagues.

Canucks' Anders Nilsson: Falls short against Colorado
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nilsson gave up five goals on 34 shots in Tuesday's overtime loss to the Avalanche.

It was the fourth consecutive appearance for Nilsson, who failed to build off a really strong victory against the Bruins. The 27-year-old was terrorized by the Avalanche power play and falls to 7-10-2 on the season with a .907 save percentage. He's shown flashes of brilliance, but the Canucks are out of the playoff picture and Nilsson hasn't shown enough on a consistent basis to be worth a fantasy play.

Avalanche's Semyon Varlamov: Makes 24 saves to edge Canucks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Varlamov stopped 24 of 28 shots in Tuesday's overtime win over the Canucks.

Varlamov didn't turn in a great performance, but it was enough to get the Avalanche their first win in three games. The Russian netminder advances to 15-12-2 on the season with a .912 save percentage. He's been fairly inconsistent of late, but backup Jonathan Bernier (head) is currently out, so the Avalanche will need their starting netminder to be at his best down the stretch.

Avalanche's Gabriel Landeskog: Multi-point effort in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Landeskog scored his 20th goal of the season and had an assist -- both on the power play -- in Tuesday's overtime win over Vancouver.

Landeskog has now hit the 20-goal plateau in five of his six full NHL seasons to date. The Avs' captain continues to be a reliable fantasy producer and is up to 44 points in 55 games this season. The 25-year-old is a force on the top line with Nathan MacKinnon (shoulder) and Mikko Rantanen and should be owned in all formats.

Avalanche's Mikko Rantanen: Puts up three power-play points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rantanen scored his 19th goal of the season and had two assists -- all on the power play -- in Tuesday's overtime win over the Canucks.

Rantanen continues to be a force on the top line and has surely benefited from the recent return of Nathan MacKinnon (shoulder). The Finnish forward now has 56 points in 58 games and continues to be a force with the man advantage. His consistent scoring and top-line role makes him very dependable in almost all fantasy formats.
