  • Stars' Radek Faksa: Picks up apple in shootout win

    Faksa notched an assist, four PIM, two hits and two blocked shots in Thursday's 6-5 shootout win over the Panthers.

    Faksa helped out on Michael Raffl's first-period marker. The 27-year-old Faksa has gone 17 games without a goal, but he's picked up a reasonable six assists in that span. The Czech center remains limited to a bottom-six role with minimal power-play usage -- he's more of a defensive presence by nature. Faksa has 11 points, 50 hits, 31 blocked shots, 30 shots on net, 25 PIM and a minus-7 rating through 30 contests.

  • Stars' Radek Faksa: Chips in with helper

    Faksa logged an assist, six hits and two blocked shots in Monday's 7-4 win over the Wild.

The Czech center is up to 10 points, 30 shots on net, 48 hits, 29 blocked shots and a minus-8 rating in 29 appearances.

The Czech center is up to nine points, 27 shots on net, 36 hits, 26 blocked shots, 17 PIM and a minus-8 rating through 25 contests overall. While he's a physical and defensive presence in the middle six, Faksa's scoring pace is a little light to be useful in fantasy.

  • Stars' Radek Faksa: Logs helper

    Faksa produced an assist and went plus-2 in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Faksa earned the secondary helper on a Tyler Seguin goal in the second period. This was Faksa's second assist in three games. Offense isn't always consistent with the 27-year-old, but he's managed eight points, 22 shots on net, 31 hits and 23 blocked shots in 21 games as a checking-line center.

    Faksa set up a Jacob Peterson goal at 18:36 of the first period. The 27-year-old Faksa isn't the most consistent player on offense, but he has collected seven points in 19 games. The Czech center has added 22 shots on net, 29 hits, 23 blocked shots and 15 PIM this season while often playing in a middle-six role, though he centered the fourth line Saturday.

  • Stars' Radek Faksa: Slings helper

    Faksa recorded an assist in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Red Wings.

    Faksa set up Ryan Suter's goal in the first period. The 27-year-old Faksa has points in consecutive games after scoring an empty-netter against the Flyers on Saturday. The Czech center is up to six points, 17 shots on net, 23 hits, 17 blocked shots and a minus-6 rating 14 contests. He's served as the fourth-line center recently, and that's coincided with the Stars' surge on offense, so it's unlikely he moves up the lineup anytime soon.

  • Stars' Radek Faksa: Puts away empty-netter

    Faksa scored an empty-net goal on two shots, logged four hits and blocked two shots in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Flyers.

    Faksa ended an eight-game point drought with the insurance tally Saturday. The 27-year-old center is up to five points in 13 contests, but he tends to collect his offense in bunches. The Czech center is a defensive-minded player, as he's added 22 hits and 17 blocks while mainly playing in a bottom-six role.

  • Stars' Radek Faksa: Collects assist in shootout win

    Faksa logged an assist, four hits and four blocked shots in Tuesday's 2-1 shootout win over the Penguins.

    Faksa set up Michael Raffl's first-period tally for the Stars' lone goal in regulation. The 27-year-old Faksa has been one of the team's standout forwards early on, with one goal, three helpers, seven shots on net, eight hits and nine blocked shots in four games. The Czech center has shown the ability to go on short bursts of offense, but he's never posted more than 33 points in a full season. At best, Faksa is a low-end depth option in standard formats.

  • Stars' Radek Faksa: Nabs first two apples of 2021-22

    Faksa collected a pair of assists and added three shots and two hits in Sunday's 3-2 loss to Ottawa.

    The 27-year-old figured in on both Dallas goals, drawing the secondary helper on tallies by Michael Raffl in the first period and Joe Pavelski in the third. Faksa had an underwhelming 2020-21 campaign, registering 14 points and a minus-15 rating in 55 games, but he's off to a nice start to this season with three points and a plus-2 in his first three tilts.

  • Stars' Radek Faksa: Delivers assist in Sunday's loss

    Faksa notched an assist, three shots on goal and three hits in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Blackhawks.

    Faksa set up Mark Pysyk's tally in the third period to cut the Blackhawks' lead to 3-2. The 27-year-old Faksa has produced a mere three points in his last 19 outings, a brutally cold run late in the year for the all-situations center. He has 14 points, 93 shots, 97 hits and a minus-13 rating through 54 games overall.

  • Stars' Radek Faksa: Ends eight-game point drought

    Faksa scored a power-play goal on four shots and went minus-3 in Thursday's 7-3 loss to the Red Wings.

    Faksa got the Stars on the board with his second-period tally, snapping an eight-game point drought. The 27-year-old forward has six goals, seven assists, 83 shots on net, 86 hits and a minus-7 rating in 45 contests as a defensive forward. Faksa brings some grit and all-situations usage, but he's not a big enough scoring threat to roster in most fantasy formats.

  • Stars' Radek Faksa: Scores goal in return

    Faksa (upper body) scored a goal on four shots in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Blackhawks.

    Faksa missed one game with the injury, and in his return, he snapped a four-game point drought. The 27-year-old center has five tallies, 12 points, 64 shots on net, 67 hits and 30 blocked shots as a solid all-situations forward for the Stars. His versatile usage could give him some appeal in deep fantasy formats.
