  • Coyotes' Niklas Hjalmarsson: Shot-blocking guru

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/10/19) Hjalmarsson posted 10 points and blocked 187 shots over 82 games the 2018-19 season.

    Although Hjalmarsson didn't score a goal this season, he made life easier on Arizona's goaltenders with a career-high 187 blocked shots to rank second in the league. Hjalmarsson isn't expected to be an offensive threat -- he starts 64.4 percent of shifts in the defensive zone --so these defensive contributions will keep him in the top four for the foreseeable future.

    Coyotes' Niklas Hjalmarsson: Lays out for six blocked shots

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/6/19) Hjalmarsson blocked six shots in a 3-1 loss to the Ducks on Tuesday.

    The Swedish defenseman has 30 blocks in his last 10 games, giving him 148 blocks this season. With only 10 assists in 66 games, Hjalmarsson hasn't produced enough to warrant a roster spot on most fantasy squads.

    Coyotes' Niklas Hjalmarsson: Unusual burst of offense

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/13/19) Hjalmarsson gathered two assists in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Golden Knights.

    Even in his prime, Hjalmarsson didn't score much. This year, he has just seven assists in 56 games. However, he added three blocks to his total Tuesday, and now has 118 for the year. If there's a specific need for blocks, HJalmarsson is one of the best for the category; otherwise, he's a fantasy non-factor.

    Coyotes' Niklas Hjalmarsson: Remains one-dimensional in fantasy

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/24/19) Hjalmarsson has recorded five assists with a plus-8 rating and 107 blocked shots through 50 games this season.

    While Hjalmarsson rarely winds up the scoresheet, his consistent blocked shot totals provide a safe floor in utilizing the veteran as a budget option in select DFS contests. Still, the Swede's career offensive numbers before and after the All-Star break are basically mirrored images, so there's no reason to expect a random surge in February or beyond.

    Coyotes' Niklas Hjalmarsson: Rarely denting scoresheet

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/7/18) Hjalmarsson has gone 10 games without recording a point.

    Hjalmarsson's heavy role in shorthanded situations -- he averages 3:28 of ice time on the penalty kill per game -- is not conducive to the defenseman wowing the masses in the fantasy realm. The 31-year-old remains a fearless shot blocker, but he's also had a tough time with injuries over the past year and it appears that he's sticking to what he does best at this point in time.
