Top Alex Goligoski News

  • Wild's Alex Goligoski: Healthy scratch Friday

    Goligoski will not be in Friday's lineup against Seattle, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Goligoski is averaging 18:48 of ice time with 30 points through 69 games this season. The 36-year-old will get a night off as the Wild prepare for the postseason. Jordie Benn will take his place in the lineup and Goligoski could return as early as Sunday against Nashville.

  • Wild's Alex Goligoski: Provides helper

    Goligoski notched an assist, four blocked shots, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Capitals.

    Goligoski has had an eventful week, sitting out three games as a scratch and signing a two-year contract extension. He's played in the last two contests with Jon Merrill (upper body) on the shelf, and Goligoski was able to snap a five-game point drought with his helper Sunday. For the season, Goligoski is at 29 points, 68 shots on net, 79 blocked shots, 48 hits and a plus-37 rating in a bottom-four role through 60 appearances.

  • Wild's Alex Goligoski: Signs contract extension

    Goligoski agreed to terms on a two-year, $4 million contract extension with the Wild on Wednesday.

  • Wild's Alex Goligoski: Scratched again Tuesday

    Goligoski will once again be a healthy scratch heading into Tuesday's matchup with the Flyers, Jessi Pierce of NHL.com reports.

    Goligoski's place in the lineup was always going to be tenuous once the Wild brought in Jacob Middleton at the deadline and now the 36-year-old veteran finds himself watching from the press box for a second straight contest. While Goligoski should push Dmitry Kulikov and Jon Merrill for a spot on the blue line, neither his eventual return or absence should impact the majority of fantasy players given his limited offensive upside.

  • Wild's Alex Goligoski: Out Sunday

    Goligoski (undisclosed) will not play Sunday against Colorado, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    It's unclear if Goligoski is injured or if it's simply a rest game for the 36-year-old blueliner. Goligoski has tallied 28 points while averaging 19 minutes of ice time through 58 games this season. He'll be considered questionable for Tuesday's tilt with the Flyers until more information is available.

  • Wild's Alex Goligoski: Contributes two helpers

    Goligoski notched two assists and went plus-2 in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Blackhawks.

    Goligoski helped out on Kevin Fiala's third-period equalizer and Marcus Foligno's game-winner in overtime. The 36-year-old Goligoski had been a bit quiet on offense with no points in his last three outings, which were sandwiched around two-game absence in the COVID-19 protocols. The defenseman has 23 points, 38 shots on net, 44 blocked shots, a plus-18 rating and 22 PIM in 32 contests -- he's surpassed his 22-point effort from 56 games with the Coyotes last season.

  • Wild's Alex Goligoski: Records assist in loss

    Goligoski posted an assist, three blocked shots and two hits in Monday's 7-4 loss to the Stars.

    Goligoski helped out on Kirill Kaprizov's second-period marker. The 36-year-old Goligoski has four assists in his last five games, and he should continue to see top-four usage as long as Jared Spurgeon (lower body) is out. Through 27 contests, Goligoski has two goals, 18 assists, 36 blocked shots, 29 shots on net and a plus-14 rating.

The Minnesota native is up to 19 points, 28 shots on net, a plus-14 rating, 33 blocked shots and 23 hits in 26 outings overall. He's just three points shy of matching his scoring output from last season.

The 36-year-old defenseman has dropped his scoring pace a bit in December with a goal and three helpers through his last six games. For the season, he's at three tallies, 15 assists, 28 shots on net, a plus-13 rating, 33 blocked shots and 21 hits through 25 contests.

  • Wild's Alex Goligoski: Chips in with power-play helper

    Goligoski logged a power-play assist and two shots on net in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Sharks.

    Goligoski also took a shot up high from Brent Burns, but he was able to return to the game after getting repairs in the locker room. The 36-year-old Goligoski has collected four helpers in his last five games. The American defenseman has 17 points (three on the power play), 24 shots on net, 29 blocked shots and a plus-13 rating through 23 appearances in his first year with the Wild.

  • Wild's Alex Goligoski: Dishes pair of assists

    Goligoski notched two assists, two blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Devils.

    Goligoski helped out on goals by Kirill Kaprizov and Ryan Hartman in the contest. The 36-year-old Goligoski has been excellent lately with two goals and eight helpers in his last eight games. For the season, the veteran defenseman has 16 points, 25 blocks, 22 shots on net and a plus-12 rating while working in a top-four role. His solid play has helped cover the absence of Jared Spurgeon (lower body), who last played Nov. 20.

  • Wild's Alex Goligoski: Pockets helper

    Goligoski registered an assist, two blocked shots and two PIM in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Coyotes.

    Goligoski helped out on a Kirill Kaprizov goal in the second period. It was a fantastic November for Goligoski, who racked up 11 of his 14 points this season the last 13 games. The 36-year-old has added 22 shots on net, 23 blocks, a plus-9 rating and 12 PIM in 19 contests overall, though it's the surge of offense lately that will get fantasy managers' attention.

  • Wild's Alex Goligoski: Opens floodgates Friday

    Goligoski scored a goal on his lone shot and added two blocks with a plus-3 rating Friday in a 7-1 victory over Winnipeg.

    Goligoski tallied the first of six straight Minnesota goals, flicking a point shot through heavy traffic to open the scoring less than a minute into the game. The first-year Wild defender, playing in his home state, has enjoyed a productive November with 10 points (two goals, eight assists) in 11 games.

  • Wild's Alex Goligoski: Two helpers in losing effort

    Goligoski notched two assists, one on the power play, in Sunday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Lightning.

    The 36-year-old blueliner continues to run wild in his first season with the Wild. Goligoski hasn't put together a 40-point campaign since 2013-14, but he's been on a tear in November with a goal and nine points in nine games. He saw nearly three minutes of action with the man advantage Sunday, behind only Matt Dumba among Minnesota defensemen, but even if he earns a consistent spot on the top power-play unit, Goligoski seems unlikely to maintain this scoring pace for long.

  • Wild's Alex Goligoski: Surprise three-point outing

    Goligoski had a goal, two assists, two shots and a plus-4 rating in Thursday's 7-2 win over Dallas.

    Goligoski didn't get in on the fun until he assisted on Minnesota's third goal of the game late in the second period, but he proceeded to add his first goal of the season and another helper in the third. The 36-year-old blueliner is up to nine points through 13 games, but Goligoski's likely to slow down at some point, as you have to go back to 2013-14 to find the last time he topped the 40-point mark.

  • Wild's Alex Goligoski: Collects helper Saturday

    Goligoski posted an assist and two blocked shots in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Kraken.

    Goligoski helped out on the first of Rem Pitlick's three goals in the contest. The 36-year-old Goligoski has been quietly effective so far with six helpers, 15 shots on net, 16 blocks and a minus-1 rating in 11 contests. He's long past having breakout potential, but the Minnesota native is steady enough to be considered in deeper fantasy formats.

  • Wild's Alex Goligoski: Offers assist in win

    Goligoski produced an assist and two shots on net in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Coyotes.

    Goligoski helped out on a Kevin Fiala goal in the second period. The assist was Goligoski's fifth of the year in nine contests, and it came against the team he played the last five seasons with. The 36-year-old has added 14 blocked shots, 12 shots on net and a minus-2 rating in a top-four role this year, which could be enough to give him low-end fantasy value.

  • Wild's Alex Goligoski: Back in lineup Saturday

    Goligoski (upper body) is expected to play against the Penguins on Saturday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Goligoski has missed the last three games while nursing an upper-body injury. The 36-year-old blueliner had three assists while averaging 19:31 of ice time in six games prior to the injury.
