  • Bruins' Zdeno Chara: Picks up two points in victory

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/8/18) Chara had a goal and an assist Wednesday in a 6-1 win over the Rangers.

    Chara doesn't have many more of these offensive outbursts left in his career, but he hasn't needed to create or score goals this season. Instead, his skills without the puck have been what's gotten the job done, which is why he's now at a rating of plus-29. In most situations, that's mostly or exclusively the source of his value.

    Bruins' Zdeno Chara: Plus-25 mark to date

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/2/18) Chara, who logged 22:37 worth of ice time in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Blues, leads the Bruins with a plus-25 rating through 49 games.

    Chara's spiffy plus/minus mark is good for second in the NHL, behind only William Karlsson (plus-27). It's a stat that is reflective of Chara's consistently strong defensive play for the surging Bruins. At 40 years of age, Chara is not counted on to generate the sort of offense he did earlier in his career, having logged four goals and 13 points this season. He doesn't need to, however, with the likes of Torey Krug and Charlie McAvoy leading the charge on that front. Chara's contract with the B's is up after this season, but he remains a premier shut-down defender at this stage of his career and his rigorous dedication to fitness and training should allow him to continue play at a high level, likely still in Boston, beyond the 2017-18 season.

    Bruins' Zdeno Chara: Collects assist

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/14/18) Chara collected an assist in a 4-3 win over the Canadiens on Saturday.

    Chara now has a point in back-to-back games, giving him just three goals and nine assists through 41 contests this year. While ice time has never been an issue for the veteran rearguard, his offensive production has fallen off over the last few seasons -- though some of that is negated by his fantastic plus-21 rating.

    Bruins' Zdeno Chara: Back-to-back games with assist

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/14/18) Chara notched an assist in a 4-3 shootout victory over Montreal on Saturday.

    The big man was able to collect a secondary assist on Jake DeBrusk's second period breakaway goal, giving him helpers in back-to-back contests. The 40-year-old certainly isn't filling the scoresheet like he used to, but still is averaging 23:21 of ice time and skating on Boston's first defensive pairing with Charlie McAvoy. The tally brought Chara up to 12 points (three goals, nine assists) in 41 games, but even with his heavy usage, he's already gone through three scoring droughts of six games or more in 2017-18.

    Bruins' Zdeno Chara: Nabs assist in victory

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/8/17) Chara collected a helper in Thursday's win over the Coyotes.

    Chara scored Monday against Nashville and followed up with an impressive performance against Arizona. The Slovakian blueliner was a plus-3 and dished out two hits in 21:17 of ice time. While he's been more involved of late, Chara has just eight points through 26 games and has gone through some long scoreless droughts. His plus-11 rating and 25 PIM show he's well-rounded in fantasy, but at this age, don't expect big offensive totals from Chara.
