  • Predators' Alexei Emelin: Pair of helpers in win over Avs

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/18/17) Emelin recorded his first two points in a Predators jersey with a pair of assists in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Avalanche.

    Even with the return of Roman Josi (lower body) to the lineup, Emelin still saw elevated minutes of 17:08 playing on the top pairing opposite P.K. Subban. Emelin still doesn't see any time on the power play, but he has a strong enough supporting cast to make him a decent low-tier fantasy option in deeper formats.

    Predators' Alexei Emelin: Seeing increased ice time

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/16/17) Emelin has been logging time on the top defensive pairing the past three games, averaging almost 20 minutes alongside P.K. Subban.

    After seeing just 9:47 in his debut game for the Preds and sitting out the next game as a healthy scratch, Emelin has been thrust into a prominent role since Roman Josi went down with a lower-body injury. He doesn't have much to show for it, however, with no points through four games along with a minus-1 rating and just three shots on goal. Expect the 31-year-old defender to return to a second- or third-line role once Josi gets the green light to return.

    Predators' Alexei Emelin: Ready to play Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/19/17) Emelin (knee) will be in the lineup for Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Panthers, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports.

    After making a brief stop in Las Vegas, Emelin is ready to make his Nashville debut and is apparently fully recovered from the knee surgery he underwent in April. The Russian defender's former Montreal teammate, P.K. Subban, is also in the early game's lineup, so it will be interesting to see whether coach Peter Laviolette chooses to reunite the two on a defensive pairing, if only for this preseason game.

    Predators' Alexei Emelin: Sent to the Music City

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/1/17) Emelin (knee) was traded by Vegas to Nashville for a third-round draft pick, Darren Dreger of TSN.ca reports.

    Emelin was only in Vegas for a few days before getting traded, but he will now be the second Montreal defenseman to end up in Nashville in the past two years, joining former teammate P.K. Subban. The physical defender will likely fit into a bottom-four role in a stacked Nashville defensive core, but expect him to make a push for over 200 hits and 100 blocked shots, just as he has the past four seasons.

    Golden Knights' Alexei Emelin: Selected by Vegas in expansion draft

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/21/17) Emelin (knee) has been selected by the Golden Knights in the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

    LeBrun's update also states that the Habs did not have to entice the Golden Knights with a draft pick for them to select the hard-hitting Russian defenseman. Emelin has one year remaining on his contract with a cap hit of $4.1 million. He also has a modified 10-team no-trade clause. Don't be the least bit surprised if the Golden Knights move Emelin to another club in the coming days. He's never reached the 20-point mark in his NHL career, and his defensive play has become increasingly erratic. It's hard to imagine all that many teams being interested in Emelin at that price tag, but the majority of the league is on the lookout for NHL-caliber defensemen.
