Coyotes' Alex Goligoski: Lengthy dry spell
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goligoski hasn't recorded a point in the last 13 games.

Goligoski had an assist in the season opener versus the Sharks on Jan. 14, but he hasn't put his name on the scoresheet since. It's a very sudden drop-off for Goligoski, who had 32 points in 70 outings last year. Part of his rapid decline can be attributed to his loss of a power-play role -- he's averaging just 23 seconds per game with the man advantage this year, compared to 1:56 per outing last year. His overall ice time has also declined to the 22-minute range. The 35-year-old has 15 shots on net, 20 hits, 27 blocked shots and an even plus-minus rating through 14 appearances.

Coyotes' Alex Goligoski: Provides assist Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goligoski had an assist and three hits in Thursday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Sharks.

Goligoski's helper came at a great time, leading to Phil Kessel's game-tying tally with 3.2 seconds left in regulation. An ever-steady veteran, Goligoski hasn't finished with fewer than 27 points since 2008-09. The 35-year-old had 134 blocked shots, 91 hits and 32 points in 70 outings last year, although he was held off the scoresheet in all nine of the Coyotes' postseason games in August.

Coyotes' Alex Goligoski: Garners assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goligoski had an assist and three blocked shots in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Capitals.

Goligoski snapped a four-game point drought with the helper on Christian Dvorak's opening tally in the second period. The 34-year-old blueliner has 29 points, 91 shots on goal, 117 blocks and 76 hits through 61 contests. He's a near-lock to top 30 points and could challenge for 40 if he gets hot down the stretch.

Coyotes' Alex Goligoski: Nabs pair of points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goligoski scored a goal and added a power-play assist in Thursday's 5-3 loss to the Hurricanes.

Goligoski struck at 15:45 of the first period and later assisted on Christian Dvorak's second-period tally. Unfortunately, the veteran blueliner went minus-3, as well. The 34-year-old has 28 points in 56 games this season, already more than he had in 76 outings last year. Goligoski has added 86 shots on goal, 104 blocked shots, 71 hits and 10 power-play points in a resurgent 2019-20 campaign.

Coyotes' Alex Goligoski: Accrues 25 points before break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goligoski has posted three goals and 22 assists over 51 games.

The 34-year-old could reach the 40-point plateau for his first time since the 2013-14 campaign. A big reason for his offensive production is his work on the power play, as he's recorded nine points with the man advantage this season. He'll play a crucial part as the Coyotes look to make the playoffs for the first time since 2012.

Coyotes' Alex Goligoski: Adds assist Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goligoski notched an assist and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Flyers.

Goligoski has been solid lately with a goal and six helpers in his last 10 outings. The 34-year-old defenseman has 24 points, a plus-7 rating and 83 blocked shots in 44 games this season. A solid mix of offense and physicality has made Goligoski a viable fantasy option in 2019-20.

Coyotes' Alex Goligoski: Snags helper in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goligoski registered an assist in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Blues.

Coyotes' Alex Goligoski: Assists on both goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goligoski registered a pair of assists and blocked four shots Monday in a 3-2 loss to Nashville.

The veteran defenseman was in on both Arizona goals, drawing the secondary assists on both. Goligoski has one goal and four assists over his last five games, although that's also come with a minus-4 rating. While he's not an elite offensive defenseman, Goligoski remains a useful contributor with three goals and 22 points in 39 games.

Coyotes' Alex Goligoski: Provides pair of power-play helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goligoski managed two power-play assists and a pair of blocked shots in Thursday's 8-5 loss to the Wild.

Both of his helpers came on Jakob Chychrun goals. Goligoski has only four points through nine games in December, but he's at 20 points, 72 blocked shots and 56 hits in 37 contests overall. Formats that reward production outside of scoring categories will give Goligoski more value than standard fantasy play.

Coyotes' Alex Goligoski: Scores lone goal on power play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goligoski potted a power-play goal, dished three hits and added two PIM in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Devils.

Goligoski knotted the score at one with his tally at 15:35 of the first period. The score remained there until Kyle Palmieri put the Devils ahead in the third. Goligoski's goal snapped a five-game point drought. The defenseman has 18 points, 57 shots on goal, 68 blocked shots and 54 hits through 35 games in 2019-20. Even with the recent dry spell, the 34-year-old is on track for a career year.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coyotes' Alex Goligoski: Serves up trio of helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goligoski had three assists, four blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Oilers.

Goligoski factored in on every Coyotes goal in the game. The defenseman has had a renaissance year, with one goal and 13 helpers in 25 appearances. If the 34-year-old can sustain that pace for a full campaign, he'd top his career high of 42 points, set in 2013-14. Goligoski has added 54 blocked shots, 41 shots on goal and 39 hits this season.

Coyotes' Alex Goligoski: Finds assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goligoski provided an assist, three shots on goal and two blocked shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Flames.

Goligoski had a secondary assist on a Christian Dvorak goal in the second period. The defenseman is having a resurgent 2019-20, with 10 points, 30 shots and 22 blocked shots in 15 appearances. He fell short of 30 points last year, the first time since the lockout-shortened 2012-13 campaign that Goligoski's production dipped that low.

Coyotes' Alex Goligoski: Another two-point night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goligoski scored a power-play goal on two shots and picked up an assist in a 3-2 overtime win over the Rangers on Tuesday.

It was the first goal of the season for Goligoski, who enjoyed his second consecutive two-point effort. The 34-year-old was a little slow out of the gates in 2009-10 with one assist in his first five games, but he's heating up now with a goal and four assists in his last three. A durable defender, Goligoski should be good for another season in the range of 30-35 points.

Coyotes' Alex Goligoski: Two helpers against Sens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goligoski collected two assists, one on the power play, in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Senators.

The veteran blueliner now has four points, all helpers, in the last five games. Goligoski failed to crack the 30-point plateau last year for the first time ever in a season during which he played at least 70 games, but if he keeps seeing consistent power-play time, he should be able to return to his usual level of production.

Coyotes' Alex Goligoski: Supplies assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goligoski registered an assist, two shots on goal and two PIM in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Predators.

Goligoski's helper came on a power-play goal by Jakob Chychrun in the second period, making it a 3-1 lead for the Coyotes at the time. The veteran defenseman has two helpers, 13 shots on goal and a plus-5 rating in six games.

Coyotes' Alex Goligoski: Shows physicality
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goligoski posted an assist, three hits and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Avalanche.

Goligoski had to log big minutes after Niklas Hjalmarsson (lower body) exited the contest in the first period. He reward his fantasy owners with a solid performance. The 34-year-old's assist was his first point in four games, and he's generated 10 shots on goal and eight hits in that span. In 2018-19, Goligoski dipped below the 30-point mark for the first time since the lockout-shortened 2012-13 campaign. He may struggle to get back over that threshold, but the Minnesota native has topped 140 blocked shots in each of the last six seasons, and he's played in 76 or more contests in each of those campaigns.

Coyotes' Alex Goligoski: Leads defense in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goligoski led his team with 21:42 of ice time during a 4-1 win over Vegas on Thursday.

Alongside Niklas Hjalmarsson, Goligoski saw 3:58 of his ice time shorthanded as the Coyotes killed off all four Golden Knights power plays. He also added three shots on goal, a hit and three blocks in the contest. Last season was the 34-year-old's worst in terms of offensive production with just 27 points, but he's still a reliable defender for the 'Yotes in his own end.

Coyotes' Alex Goligoski: Contributes assist in rally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goligoski picked up a helper and fired three shots on goal in Friday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Avalanche.

The assist snapped a six-game point drought for the blueliner, who has earned 27 points (three goals, 24 apples) in 72 games this year. His points-per-game pace of 0.38 is the lowest of Goligoski's career. At 33 years old, it's not a huge surprise to see him slowing down.

Coyotes' Alex Goligoski: Two assists on power play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goligoski assisted on two power-play goals in Thursday's 6-1 win over the Ducks.

The defender has six points, all helpers, in his last 16 games, giving him 26 points in 65 outings this season. Goligoski has ended up in the mid-30s for points in each of the last four seasons, but he'll have to pick up the pace to reach that mark this year.
