  • Predators' Matt Irwin: Falls just short of 10 points

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/13/18) Irwin totaled two goals and six assists throughout 50 appearances in 2017-18, while also notching 78 hits.

    This marked Irwin's second season in Nashville, but he saw his time on ice drop from 16:16 in his first campaign to 13:26 this season. The lower usage was likely a big reason why Irwin was unable to crack 10 points for the fifth time in his career, but he also made a mark defensively blocking 54 shots, and did post a solid 51 percent corsi rating. The 30-year-old is due back in Music City for 2018-19, although he's set to be a free agent afterwords. The fact he played in 12 of 13 playoff contests bodes well for his usage next season, although he should primarily skate on the third pairing.

    Predators' Matt Irwin: Still filling depth role for Preds

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/25/18) Irwin served as a healthy scratch for the sixth time in the past eight games Saturday against Minnesota.

    Irwin continues to serve mostly as a depth defenseman for the Preds this season, having played in just 47 of a possible 74 games. However, he could get a chance to suit up Sunday against the Jets in place of the injured Yannick Weber, who left Saturday's game with an undisclosed injury. Either way, Irwin's fantasy value remains almost nonexistent in most standard formats.

    Predators' Matt Irwin: Can't crack lineup

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/9/18) Irwin served as a healthy scratch for the fifth consecutive game Thursday against the Senators.

    Irwin has been jockeying all season with Anthony Bitetto and Yannick Weber for a spot on the team's third blue-line pairing, but appears to be the odd man out right now. He did play in five consecutive games during the second half of January, but hasn't suited up since. The bottom line: zero ice time equals zero fantasy value, so feel free to cut him loose.

    Predators' Matt Irwin: Garners two-year extension

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/9/18) Irwin signed a two-year contract extension valued at $650,000 in 2018-19 and $700,000 in the subsequent year.

    Predators GM David Poile has placed an emphasis on solidifying his defensive corps for future seasons, granting extensions to Irwin, Yannick Weber and Anthony Bitetto on Tuesday. None of these players tilt the scales in the fantasy realm, but Irwin, for one, is a quality shot blocker who's managed a plus-17 rating since joining the Preds ahead of last season.

    Predators' Matt Irwin: Rare assist in win over Blues

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/28/17) Irwin recorded just his sixth point of the season with an assist Wednesday against the Blues.

    Irwin has been in and out of the lineup with regularity so far in December, having played in just six of a possible 11 games. As part of the Preds' third defensive pairing, he typically only sees 11-12 minutes of ice time whenever he does play, giving him very little fantasy value in most formats.
