Coyotes' Alex Goligoski: On four-game helper streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goligoski produced an assist, three blocked shots and a minus-3 rating in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over the Sharks.

Goligoski played all 56 games in the 2020-21 campaign. He started slowly but picked up the pace from late March onward. Overall, the American blueliner had 22 points, 72 shots on net, 108 blocked shots, 76 hits and a plus-2 rating in 2020-21. He'll be 36 years old when next season starts, so it's uncertain how much longer Goligoski can be productive enough to warrant attention in fantasy.

Coyotes' Alex Goligoski: On four-game point streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goligoski scored a goal on four shots and added four hits in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Wild.

Coyotes' Alex Goligoski: Torrid scoring continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goligoski scored a goal Saturday in a 3-2 win over St. Louis.

The defender is playing like a man possessed. Goligoski has 12 points (two goals, 10 assists) in his past 13 games after putting up two in his first 32. It's unlikely Goligoski is on the wire, but if so, snap him up.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Goligoski notched an assist, five blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Sharks.

Goligoski was steady as ever defensively, and he added a helper on the second of Phil Kessel's three goals. The 35-year-old Goligoski hasn't done much on offense with only five points in 35 games this season. He's added 71 blocked shots, 48 hits, 43 shots on net and a plus-4 rating in 2020-21.

Coyotes' Alex Goligoski: One of each Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goligoski scored a goal on three shots, dished an assist and went plus-3 in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout win over the Avalanche.

Goligoski, who just reached 900 career games Monday, had his best game of the year Tuesday. The 35-year-old defenseman gave the Coyotes a 2-0 lead with his first-period tally. He added a helper on Lawson Crouse's goal to spark a comeback in the third. Goligoski now has four points, 40 shots on net, 63 blocked shots and 47 hits in 33 outings. Despite Tuesday's good outing, the veteran blueliner can probably be left off most fantasy rosters.

Coyotes' Alex Goligoski: Finally back on scoresheet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goligoski recorded an assist and two blocked shots in Monday's 3-2 win over the Avalanche.

Goligoski had the secondary helper on Jakob Chychrun's first-period tally to give the Coyotes a 2-0 lead. It appears 2020-21 is when Goligoski's offense has fallen off a cliff. The helper Monday was just his second of the season. He's added 49 blocked shots, 37 hits, 29 shots on net and a minus-2 rating in 25 games. At 35 years old, it's not surprising to see Goligoski's offense decline, but many fantasy managers probably expected a more gradual slide. He has topped 30 points in all but two of the last 11 years, but it'll take a significant turnaround for him to even reach 20 this season.

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.
