  • Predators' Matt Irwin: Watching from press box

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/20/19) Irwin did not dress for Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Panthers, the third consecutive game he has served as a healthy scratch.

    Earlier in January, the seldom-used blueliner had previously been seeing regular minutes as an injury sub for Yannick Weber, but now finds himself watching from the press box once again. As the Preds' seventh defenseman, Irwin has played in just 24 games this season with five points to show for it, giving him zero fantasy value in most standard leagues.

    Predators' Matt Irwin: Seeing extra ice time as injury sub

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/28/18) Irwin went minus-2 in Thursday's 2-0 loss to the Stars, but he contributed three shots on goal, three hits and a pair of blocked shots.

    With just 18 games under his belt, Irwin has frequently been a healthy scratch this season. However, with Yannick Weber now on IR with an undisclosed injury, he could start to see more regular ice time on the third defensive pair opposite Dan Hamhuis. Either way, the 30-year-old has never recorded more than 19 points in a single NHL season, and he should not be counted on for significant fantasy production at this point in his career.

    Predators' Matt Irwin: Seeing more game action

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/7/18) Irwin scored his first goal of the season in Thursday's 5-3 loss to the Canucks.

    Irwin has been a healthy scratch more often than not this season, but with P.K. Subban remaining on IR with an upper-body injury, Irwin has been getting more looks lately. He has now been in the lineup for a season-high six consecutive games, and he has a goal and two assists over that span. With that said, since Subban's return is looming, Irwin will likely return to healthy-scratch status before long.

    Predators' Matt Irwin: Limited role this season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/28/18) Irwin scored his second point of the season with an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Avalanche.

    Irwin continues to platoon with Anthony Bitetto for a spot opposite Yannick Weber on the Preds' third defensive pairing. As a result, he's only played in eight games this season, giving him next to no value in most fantasy formats. Furthermore, once P.K. Subban returns from injury, he might play even less. Needless to say, he should not be on your fantasy roster right now.

    Predators' Matt Irwin: Ice time dwindling

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/4/18) Irwin skated just 8:42 in Saturday's 1-0 win over the Bruins, registering two hits and a blocked shot.

    The good news is, this was Irwin's third time back in the lineup after sitting out the first 11 games of the season as a healthy scratch. The bad news is, he's still seeing minimal ice time playing on the third defensive pairing, and has yet to register a point or even a shot on goal this season. Looking ahead, once Dan Hamhuis returns from the IR, Irwin will likely go back to riding the pine most nights.
