  • Predators' Mattias Ekholm: Two power-play assists in 5-2 win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/6/17) Ekholm dished out a pair of power-play assists in Tuesday's 5-2 win over Dallas.

    Ekholm's up to 18 points in 28 games, with half of those coming on the power play. The Swede's emergence as an offensive force on the back end has made it much easier for his team to deal with the absence of Ryan Ellis (knee), who still hasn't suited up this season after contributing 16 goals and 38 points in 2016-17. Ekholm's improved offense hasn't diminished his defensive capabilities, and he drove that point home in this one with a team-high five blocks to go with his two points.

    Predators' Mattias Ekholm: Breakout season unfolding

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/26/17) Ekholm recorded a power-play goal and added an assist during Sunday's loss to the Hurricanes.

    Ekholm has been on fire lately, with five goals and three assists over his last five games, with four of those five goals coming on the power play. Ekholm is clearly benefiting from his first-pairing assignment opposite defensive stud Roman Josi, and is now on pace for a breakout 55-point season. You know what to do.

    Predators' Mattias Ekholm: Scores for third straight game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/19/17) Ekholm scored for the third consecutive game and picked up four PIM in Saturday's win over Colorado.

    Ekholm is rolling right now and is now up to 12 points in 19 games. Two of the goals he's scored during this recent streak have come with the man advantage, as he's become a power-play contributor for the first time in his career. Nashville's blue line is loaded with talent, but Ekholm is logging heavy minutes in all situations and is on track for a career season. Use him well.

    Predators' Mattias Ekholm: Stuffs scoresheet against Caps

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/15/17) Ekholm recorded a power-play goal, an assist, four shots on net and a plus-2 rating through 21:26 of ice time (3:33 with the man advantage) during Tuesday's 6-3 win over Washington.

    Nothing about Ekholm's numbers jump off the page (nine points, 25 shots, 10 PIM, 21 hits and 28 blocked shots), but his cross-category coverage yields a solid fantasy return in most settings. The 27-year-old Swede's significant role in all situations also adds to his reliability.

    Predators' Mattias Ekholm: Suffers practice injury

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/31/17) Ekholm sustained an apparent upper-body injury in Tuesday's practice, Robby Stanley of NHL.com reports.

    This is a developing situation, but we do know that the Swedish defenseman left the practice session early. The Predators won't play again until Wednesday's road contest in San Jose, so the telling sign of his availability for that one will be predicated on whether or not he travels with the team.
