    Heiskanen notched an assist and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Kraken.

    Heiskanen had a shot go wide, but it bounced right to Joe Pavelski, who tucked it in at the side of the net in the first period. The 22-year-old Heiskanen has a goal and five assists during his five-game point streak. The Finnish blueliner had gone seven games without a point prior to his surge. He's up to 22 points, 80 shots on net, 47 blocked shots and a minus-5 rating through 32 appearances.

  • Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Draws power-play helper

    Heiskanen recorded a power-play assist, five shots on goal, two blocked shots and a minus-2 rating in Thursday's 6-5 shootout win over the Panthers.

    Heiskanen snapped his seven-game point skid with a two-point effort before the holiday break. The 22-year-old was one of the Stars to enter the COVID-19 protocols in late December, but he was able to log 26:01 of ice time in Thursday's contest. Heiskanen is up to 19 points (eight on the power play), 76 shots on net, 42 blocks and a minus-8 rating through 29 contests. If he can display a little more consistency on offense, he'll be a strong option in fantasy.

  • Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Clears COVID-19 protocols

    Heiskanen departed the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Monday.

    Heiskanen will look to continue his career-best 82-game pace of 53 points upon his return from the league's virus protocols. He hasn't recorded less than 21 minutes of ice time in any contest so far this season and should continue to see plenty of scoring opportunities going forward.

    Heiskanen scored a goal on two shots and added an assist in Monday's 7-4 win over the Wild.

The Finnish defenseman's recent slump hasn't destroyed his season, as he still has four goals and 18 points through 28 appearances. He's added 71 shots on net, 40 blocked shots and a minus-6 rating in a top-four role.

  • Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Won't play Friday

    Heiskanen (illness) will not play Friday in St. Louis, Bruce LeVine of Dallas Stars Radio reports.

    Heiskanen won't travel with the team, but he hasn't been ruled out for Saturday's home game against Chicago, so fantasy managers will have no choice but to take a wait-and-see approach with the 22-year blueliner.

    Heiskanen produced an assist, three blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Hurricanes.

    Heiskanen set up Roope Hintz's empty-net goal, earning the latter his first career hat trick. The 22-year-old Heiskanen has now gone eight games without a goal, but the defenseman has four assists in that span. For the year, the Finn has three tallies, 13 helpers, 55 shots on net, 29 blocks and a minus-3 rating in 20 contests.

  • Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Collects power-play helper

    Heiskanen produced a power-play assist, four shots on goal and two blocked shots in Friday's 3-1 win over the Avalanche.

    Heiskanen drew the primary helper on Denis Gurianov's second-period marker. Through 18 contests, Heiskanen has 15 points (seven on the power play), 50 shots, 22 blocks and a minus-5 rating. He's been limited to three helpers in the last six games after a stronger start to the year, but Heiskanen's production is at a good enough level to have widespread appeal in fantasy.

  • Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Tipped shot yields assist

    Heiskanen produced an assist, blocked two shots and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Red Wings.

    Heiskanen had a shot attempt tipped in by Jamie Benn at 1:06 of the second period. The assist was Heiskanen's 10th of the season, giving him 13 points through 14 games. The Finn has added 39 shots on net, 18 blocks, a minus-4 rating and six power-play points this year. He had 27 points in 55 outings last season, but the early returns suggest Heiskanen has taken his offense to the next level in 2021-22.

  • Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Manages assist on power play

    Heiskanen notched a power-play assist, four shots on goal, two PIM and a minus-2 rating in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Canucks.

    Heiskanen's helper on a Ryan Suter goal in the third period kept the former on a point-per-game pace. The 22-year-old Heiskanen is up to two goals, nine assists and 30 shots on net through 11 contests. He's collected five power-play points while playing a massive role in all situations for the Stars. The Finnish blueliner was likely underrated in fantasy drafts this fall -- he's provided excellent value for his middle-round draft position so far.

  • Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Hauls in bushel of apples

    Heiskanen recorded three assists, three shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Flames.

    Heiskanen factored in on all of the Stars' goals in regulation. The three-assist effort got the Finn to a point-per-game pace -- he has two goals and eight helpers through 10 contests. Heiskanen has been one of the bright spots for a slow-starting Stars team, and he should continue to be a positive for fantasy managers too.

  • Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Produces assist Wednesday

    Heiskanen logged an assist and four blocked shots in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Golden Knights.

    Heiskanen had a shot attempt in the first period that was tipped past Vegas goalie Laurent Brossoit by Luke Glendening. The helper was Heiskanen's seventh point in as many contests to open the season. The Finnish blueliner has added 19 shots on goal, 13 blocks, seven hits and a minus-3 rating as one of the Stars' most productive players through the first two weeks.

  • Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Rounds up three points

    Heiskanen scored a power-play goal on four shots, dished two assists, blocked three shots and added two hits in Friday's 3-2 overtime win over the Kings.

    Heiskanen's three-point effort doubled his scoring output this season. He's racked up a pair of goals and four helpers through five games, while adding nine blocked shots and 15 shots on net. The third overall pick from 2017 has long been poised for a breakout year -- his start in 2021-22 suggests this could be such a season, especially since the Stars as a team haven't exactly been tickling twine all that often early on.

  • Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Produces assist

    Heiskanen recorded an assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 2-1 shootout win over the Penguins.

    The Stars have only scored seven goals in four games as a team, so offense has been hard to come by. With that in mind, Heiskanen has done fairly well with three points, 11 shots on net, six blocked shots and an even plus-minus rating so far. The 22-year-old defenseman has averaged 26:46 of ice time per game as he emerges as an all-around force on the ice.
