Ducks' Matt Irwin: Non-factor in new digs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irwin recorded one point -- an assist -- in nine games with Anaheim this season.

The 32-year-old came over via trade from Nashville, where he pitched in just two points in 27 contests, in late February. As evidenced by Irwin's single point in Orange County and 18 over the last three seasons, there likely won't be anything to see here from a fantasy perspective anytime soon.

Ducks' Matt Irwin: Nabs first assist with Ducks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irwin recorded an assist, six blocked shots, four hits and two shots on net in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Avalanche.

Irwin's helper was his first point in five games since he was acquired by the Ducks at the trade deadline. He's provided a veteran presence to his new team's blue line, which has been decimated by injuries recently. Irwin has just three assists to go with 73 hits, 44 blocks and 48 shots in 32 contests this year. Outside of deep formats that reward defensive play, the 32-year-old blueliner is likely a non-factor in fantasy.

Ducks' Matt Irwin: Sent to Anaheim
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ducks acquired Irwin and a 2022 sixth-round pick from the Predators for Korbinian Holzer on Monday, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.

Irwin has struggled to get on the ice this year, spending 12 of the last 14 games in the press box as a healthy scratch. The 32-year-old will get a fresh start with the rebuilding Ducks, and he could make his Anaheim debut Tuesday versus the Oilers if Cam Fowler (lower body) can't go.

Predators' Matt Irwin: Watching from press box
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irwin sat as a healthy scratch for the 12th time in 13 games Saturday against the Blue Jackets.

Irwin's spot in the lineup has essentially been handed over to 26-year-old Jarred Tinordi, recently recalled from AHL Milwaukee. The 32-year-old Irwin is in the final year of a two-year, $1.35 million contract extension with the Preds, and will likely be looking to ply his trade for another team come next season.

Predators' Matt Irwin: Watching from press box
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irwin sat out a third consecutive game as a healthy scratch Saturday against the Golden Knights.

Even with Ryan Ellis on the IR with an upper-body injury, Irwin still can't seem to find a regular spot in the lineup, with Ellis' minutes going to recent AHL callup Jarred Tinordi. Irwin has now played in 26 of a possible 51 games this season, with just a pair of assists to his credit. Needless to say, he does not warrant any fantasy consideration at this time.

Predators' Matt Irwin: Gets on scoresheet with assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irwin notched an assist, four hits and two blocked shots in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Kings.

Irwin's second helper on the year came on a Yakov Trenin goal in the third period. The 32-year-old blueliner has seen more consistent playing time recently and could continue to with Ryan Ellis and Dante Fabbro both sidelined by upper-body injuries. Irwin has just two assists to go with 39 hits, 25 blocked shots and a minus-7 rating through 21 games. He's not likely to make enough of an impact to affect the fantasy game, however.

Predators' Matt Irwin: Watching from press box
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irwin was a healthy scratch for the third time in the past four games Saturday against the Devils.

The 31-year-old rearguard has played in just 12 of a possible 28 games this season, and has just a single assist to show for his efforts. Clearly, he does not suit up often enough to warrant any real fantasy consideration.

Predators' Matt Irwin: In and out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irwin returned to the lineup Saturday against the Blackhawks after sitting out the previous four games as a healthy scratch.

Irwin has spent most of this season platooning with Yannick Weber for a spot on the Preds' bottom defensive pairing, which severely limits his fantasy value in most formats. Now with just a single point in eight games this season, he is best left on your league's waiver wire.

Predators' Matt Irwin: Grabs first apple
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irwin scored his first point of the season with an assist in Thursday's 6-5 overtime loss to the Flames.

Good on him for the helper, but Irwin remains a poor fantasy play at the best of times, averaging just 11:51 in ice time on the Preds' third defensive pairing. In addition, he's already been a healthy scratch seven times this season. Nothing to see here, folks.

Predators' Matt Irwin: Riding pine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irwin sat out his third consecutive game as a healthy scratch Thursday against the Coyotes.

Irwin, who only played in 44 games last season, has had even more trouble getting himself in the lineup this year due to the emergence of 21-year-old rookie blueliner Dante Fabbro. Fabbro, who has played every game, has a pair of goals and sports a plus-4 rating, so he looks to be a mainstay in the lineup for now, leaving Irwin as the odd man out.

Predators' Matt Irwin: Picks up rare assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irwin collected a helper and two PIM in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Sharks.

Irwin has appeared in the Predators' last nine games after serving as a healthy scratch frequently in February. The defense-first blueliner has a goal and five assists in 40 appearances this season, and without much in the way of other stats, Irwin is safe to avoid for fantasy purposes.

Predators' Matt Irwin: Not seeing regular ice time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irwin served as a healthy scratch Saturday -- the ninth time in the past 14 games he has watched from the press box.

Irwin continues to platoon with Yannick Weber for a spot opposite Dan Hamhuis on the Preds' third defensive pairing. With just five points and 29 games played this season, he simply doesn't move the fantasy needle and is not roster-worthy in most formats.

Predators' Matt Irwin: Watching from press box
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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.

Predators' Matt Irwin: Riding the pine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irwin has not yet suited up for a game this season, having sat out the Predators' first four games as a healthy scratch.

Irwin played more than half the schedule last season, registering just eight points in 50 games, but he has yet to crack the lineup this season. He is really nothing more than a depth defenseman for the Preds at this point, and should continue to battle with Anthony Bitetto, Yannick Weber and Dan Hamhuis for a spot on the third defensive pairing. As such, he has little to no fantasy value in most formats.

Predators' Matt Irwin: Falls just short of 10 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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.
