  • Bruins' Nick Holden: Traded to Boston

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/20/18) Holden was traded to the Bruins from the Rangers on Tuesday in exchange for Rob O'Gara and a 2018 third-round pick.

    It was no secret that the Bruins were in the market for some blue-line depth heading into the stretch run and they apparently got their man in Holden. The 30-year-old's production this season has been a bit of a disappointment, but the 2016-17 campaign that saw him record 34 points and a plus-13 rating serves as an excellent reminder that he can be an effective force in the right role. In Boston, that role will likely be on the third defensive pairing, as the team's top four is already quite secure, so he figures to be a better option for real-life purposes rather than in the fantasy realm.

    Rangers' Nick Holden: Offense way down from last season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/17/18) Holden's point drought reached five games in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Flyers.

    Holden had the best offensive season of his career with 11 goals and 34 points in 80 games last year, but his scoring has dropped off sharply in his second campaign on Broadway. Through 40 appearances this time around, Holden has put up just three goals and eight points. At least being paired with two-way stud Ryan McDonagh for most of the season has allowed Holden to maintain a solid plus-6 rating.

    Rangers' Nick Holden: Chips in rare multi-point effort

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/20/17) Holden recorded two assists and a plus-2 rating through 18:21 of ice time during Tuesday's 4-1 win over Anaheim.

    After registering 30 points last year, Holden has just a goal and five assists through 29 games to start this season. The 30-year-old defenseman is also hardly moving the fantasy needle in the peripheral categories with just 22 shots, two PIM and no power-play points. It's probably best to aim higher in the majority of settings.

    Rangers' Nick Holden: Late turnover leads to winning goal against

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/29/17) Holden finished with a minus-2 rating in 19:45 of ice time during Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Panthers.

    Holden was directly responsible for Florida's game-winning goal with 1:09 remaining, turning the puck over in the defensive zone before screening his own goaltender on his ensuing block attempt. Coach Alain Vigneault's job appears to be safe now that New York's turned things around after a slow start, but his puzzling insistence on deploying Holden in key late-game situations could get Vigneault back on the hot seat given the defenseman's underwhelming track record.

    Rangers' Nick Holden: Shaking off slow start

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/17/17) Holden has garnered just two points through the opening month and a half of the 2017-18 campaign, but both have come in the last five games.

    Holden appears to have cemented himself on the Rangers' blue line after starting out the year as a periodic healthy scratch, registering 19:25 of ice time in his previous six outings -- during which he scored both of his points -- which is over two minutes more than his season average (17:05). After setting career highs in both goals and assists in 2016-17, the defenseman will look to repeat those numbers this year as well.
