  • Capitals' Nic Dowd: Buries goal Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/30/18) Dowd posted a goal and won six of 11 faceoffs during Sunday's 5-2 victory over the Blues.

    Dowd appears to have locked down the fourth-line center position, especially with Travis Boyd (lower body) likely to open the season on the injured list. The 28-year-old will be counted on for defensive and penalty-killing prowess above all else which limits his fantasy value to deeper formats.

    Capitals' Nic Dowd: Signs with Caps

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/1/18) Dowd has signed a one-year, $650,000 contract with the Capitals.

    Dowd finished with three goals and four points along with a minus-10 rating in 56 games between Vancouver and LA during the 2017-18 season. With Jay Beagle now in Vancouver, the Caps are keen to add some organizational depth down the middle, and the rugged center's proficiency in the faceoff dot (51 percent in 2017-18) was likely a motivating factor. The 28-year-old forward will compete for a spot on the roster, but without much offensive acumen, he will struggle to maintain much fantasy value in standard formats.

    Canucks' Nic Dowd: Struggles to find ice time throughout 2017-18

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/15/18) Dowd played in 56 games during the 2017-18 season, scoring three goals and adding an assist while averaging 10:32 of ice time.

    The press box was a popular designation for Dowd during the season, but after the calendar year he was able to play in 31 of the last 43 games. Logging bottom six minutes usually doesn't translate to many points given the lack of opportunities, but Dowd does boast a two-way game and good passing ability, and is just a year removed from posting 22 points in 70 games in his first full season in the NHL for Los Angeles. Dowd is set to be a free agent, but although he should be able to earn a contract for 2018-19, it seems unlikely he'll slot into the top six in Vancouver or with a new team.

    Canucks' Nic Dowd: Subbing in Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/3/18) Dowd will tag into the lineup Saturday night against the visiting Lightning.

    Dowd will be deployed as a reinforcement option with Sam Gagner (concussion) feeling better, but not quite ready for the next contest. You won't see fantasy owners rushing to pick up Dowd, as he's only fashioned 24 career points between the Kings and Canucks since arriving in LA for the 2015-16 campaign.

    Canucks' Nic Dowd: Set for debut with Vancouver

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/9/17) Dowd will make his Canucks debut Saturday night against the Flames.

    Pried away from the Kings in a trade for defenseman Jordan Subban late Thursday night, Dowd should occupy a bottom-six role in his debut. He logged 1:34 of ice time on the power play with the Kings last season, but it remains to be seen if he'll garner man-advantage minutes in his new digs. Either way, we advise that you take a wait-and-see approach with the man who's only recorded 23 points (six goals, 17 assists) in 91 career contests at hockey's highest level.
