Golden Knights' Paul Stastny: Production lacking at even strength
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Despite playing all 71 games for the Golden Knights this season, Stastny only ranks seventh on the team in points with 17 goals and 21 assists.

Stastny's ice-time average has dropped by close to a minute per game compared to last season (18:06 vs. 17:08), but the good news is that he's back to a double-digit output on the man advantage for the first time in four years. Stastny has five power-play goals and five power-play helpers thanks in large part to his role on the first unit. The veteran pivot has extensive playoff experience and remains a decent low-end fantasy option should the 2019-20 campaign ultimately resume.

Golden Knights' Paul Stastny: Offers assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stastny posted an assist, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 4-2 win over the Sabres.

Stastny has managed a goal and five helpers in his last six contests. The 34-year-old center has 37 points, 127 shots and a plus-6 rating in 66 appearances this year. He's worth a look as a depth scoring option, and his 55.2 percent success rate on faceoffs can make him valuable in formats that use that category.

Golden Knights' Paul Stastny: Contributes assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stastny managed an assist, three shots on goal, two PIM and two hits in Wednesday's 3-0 win over the Oilers.

Stastny has had a productive February, with two goals and seven helpers through 12 contests. The 34-year-old is up to 36 points, 125 shots, 62 hits and a plus-4 rating through 65 games this season. As long as he's in a top-six role, Stastny can produce enough offense to interest fantasy owners.

Golden Knights' Paul Stastny: Notches pair of helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stastny posted two assists and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Panthers.

Stastny assisted on both of Reilly Smith's third-period tallies. During a three-game point streak, Stastny has a goal and three helpers. He's racked up 35 points (17 goals, 18 helpers), 121 shots, 59 hits and a plus-4 rating through 63 contests. Stastny has done moderately well centering Jonathan Marchessault and Smith -- expect that trio to remain as the second line for most, if not all, of the rest of the season.

Golden Knights' Paul Stastny: Gets back in goal column
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stastny potted a goal on four shots in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Lightning.

Stastny struck at 6:45 of the second period to give the Golden Knights a 2-1 lead. The 34-year-old has 17 tallies, 33 points, 120 shots and 59 hits through 62 games this year. He's likely to remain in a top-six role, but he's more of a supporting scorer than a leading producer.

Golden Knights' Paul Stastny: On modest three-game point streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stastny collected an assist in Saturday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Hurricanes.

Stastny has filled in admirably on the top line while William Karlsson's been out with an upper-body injury. In eight games since Karlsson got hurt, Stastny has 10 points and a plus-7 rating. The Quebec native is up to 31 points, 107 shots and 55 hits through 57 contests overall and could provide solid value in DFS while seeing big minutes.

Golden Knights' Paul Stastny: Stays productive in road loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stastny scored a goal on his lone shot of the game and added a pair of hits in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to Tampa Bay.

Stastny has been on a productive run of late, having scored in four of his last six games. He's done that on only 10 shots so buyer beware if you're considering him as a waiver wire pickup. Regardless, Stastny has provided the Golden Knights with 16 goals and 28 points in 55 games and has a very real shot at his first 20-goal season since 2013-14 with Colorado.

Golden Knights' Paul Stastny: Will play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stastny (face) will be in the lineup against Boston on Tuesday, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

Stastny will suit up after taking a puck to the face versus the Habs on Saturday. Prior to getting hurt, the center notched a goal and an assist for a second straight multi-point game. Even once William Karlsson (upper body) returns to the lineup, the 33-year-old Stastny should remain in a top-six role heading into the back half of the season.

Golden Knights' Paul Stastny: Bloodied by puck Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stastny (face) was hit in the mouth with a puck in Saturday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Canadiens.

Stastny scored a goal and added an assist in the contest before the puck caught him in the face. Minus a few chiclets, it was a solid performance for the center. After the game, coach Pete DeBoer said he didn't think there was any more serious damage to Stastny, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports. Nevertheless, his status should be confirmed prior to Tuesday's game in Boston.

Golden Knights' Paul Stastny: Opens scoring in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stastny scored a goal and posted an assist as well to finish Thursday's 4-2 win over Ottawa with two points.

The two points give Stastny 23 in 50 games this season, good for a nightly average of 0.46 points. Averaging the fewest minutes per game of his career (16:38), Stastny's production has fallen off in 2019-20, making him a risky play most nights. Thursday was just his third multi-point game of the campaign.

Golden Knights' Paul Stastny: Riding four-game point streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stastny posted an assist and two PIM in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Kings.

Stastny has amassed two goals and three helpers in a four-game point streak. The center has 21 points (12 tallies, nine assists), 86 shots on goal, 20 PIM and a minus-7 rating in 47 appearances in 2019-20. He's returned to a second-line role with Jonathan Marchessault (lower body) unavailable, but Stastny had primarily featured on the third line prior to Marchessault's injury.

Golden Knights' Paul Stastny: Tallies in consecutive games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stastny scored a power-play goal on six shots in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Penguins.

Stastny's goal at 14:18 of the second period brought the Golden Knights within one after a slow start. The center saw top-unit power-play duties with Jonathan Marchessault (lower body) out. Stastny now has 12 goals and 20 points through 46 games. The 34-year-old has added 86 shots on goal, 48 hits and 18 PIM.

Golden Knights' Paul Stastny: Hurts former team with tally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stastny found the back of the net in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over the Blues.

Stastny patiently anticipated a no-look pass from William Carrier for an easy score; goalie Jake Allen was caught way out of position. While the veteran was able to inflict damage on his old team, Stastny has a long way to go in order to match his scoring pace from the 2018-19 campaign, when he tallied 13 goals to complement 29 helpers.

Golden Knights' Paul Stastny: Serves up pair of helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stastny provided two assists, one on the power play, in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Flyers.

Deuces were wild on Stastny's stat line, as he also had a pair each of hits and shots on goal with a plus-2 rating. The center has accumulated 18 points, 48 hits and 76 shots through 44 contests this season.

Golden Knights' Paul Stastny: Buries 10th goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stastny scored a goal on two shots and added two hits in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Coyotes.

Stastny's tally chased Coyotes goal Antti Raanta from the contest just 1:54 into the second period. In 42 games this year, Stastny has 10 goals, six assists, 74 shots on goal and 45 hits.

Golden Knights' Paul Stastny: Opens scoring in road win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stastny scored a goal on two shots in a 3-1 win over the Sharks on Sunday.

Stastny broke the ice late in the second period when his ninth goal of the season opened the scoring. He hadn't scored a goal in his last 11 games, a skid that began Nov. 29. A supporting player for the Golden Knights, Stastny has 15 points in 39 games and is minus-7.

Golden Knights' Paul Stastny: Nabs helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stastny registered an assist Sunday in a 6-3 win over the Canucks.

Stastny only has three points (one goal, two assists) over the last 10 games. Newcomer Chandler Stephenson has pushed the veteran down to the third line, but Stastny is a perennial power-play contributor to preserve interest in him as a fantasy option in deep leagues.

Golden Knights' Paul Stastny: Registers assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stastny managed an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Blackhawks.

Stastny found Ryan Reaves for the Golden Knights' fifth and final goal of the game. Stastny entered Tuesday on a five-game slump, which has seen him lose his second-line job to Chandler Stephenson. In 33 games this season, the Quebec native has 13 points, 64 shots, 40 hits and 18 PIM. The recent drop in offense has made Stastny a non-factor in standard fantasy formats.

Golden Knights' Paul Stastny: Plays overtime hero
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stastny scored the winning goal on his only shot of the game in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime victory over Nashville.

Stastny converted a 2-on-1 rush with Nate Schmidt to seal the win less than two minutes into overtime. Stastny has now found the net in back-to-back games after having scored only once in his previous 12 outings. The 33-year-old should be good for another 20-goal season when all is said and done, but he probably won't be much of a fantasy difference-maker except in deeper leagues.

Golden Knights' Paul Stastny: Scores third-period goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stastny scored a goal on a game-high six shots and added four blocks in Monday's 4-2 loss to Dallas.

Stastny cut the Dallas lead to 3-2 early in the third period when he netted his seventh goal of the season. The 33-year-old has had a quiet November -- Monday's goal was just his second in 12 games -- but those six shots on goal were an encouraging sign after he'd gone his previous three games without generating a single shot.
