  • Predators' Miikka Salomaki: Filling in as injury sub

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/29/18) Salomaki, frequently a healthy scratch this season, played in nine straight games prior to the All-Star break, recording an assist, seven shots on goal and 21 hits, while averaging 11:04 in ice time.

    After watching from the press box for 11 of the previous 16 games, Salomaki's chance to rejoin the lineup came at the start of January when teammate Filip Forsberg landed on injured reserve with an injured hand. Salomaki remains limited to fourth-line duties, however, which helps explain his lack of offense and abundance of hits. With Forsberg due back in the lineup sometime in the coming weeks, we view Salomaki's regular spot in the lineup to be temporary at best. Be prepared to bench him immediately upon Forsberg's return.

    Predators' Miikka Salomaki: Seeing minimal ice time for Preds this season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/1/18) Salomaki served as a healthy scratch for 10 of 13 games in the month of December.

    Salomaki has now played in just 23 of 38 games this season and has recorded just five points (two goals, three assists). When he does get the chance to suit up, he typically centers the Preds' fourth line, averaging roughly 10 minutes in ice time per game. Overall, Salomaki's tendency to miss a lot of games, combined with his bottom-six role, makes him expendable in most fantasy formats.

    Predators' Miikka Salomaki: Riding pine lately

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/17/17) Salomaki served as a healthy scratch for the sixth consecutive game Saturday at Calgary.

    The 24-year-old Finn has been in and out of the lineup with regularity this season, and given how hot the Predators have been lately (just one regulation loss in their last 10 games), it's doubtful he will see an opportunity to suit up anytime soon. With just five points in 21 games this season, Salomaki should not be counted on for fantasy purposes at the present time.

    Predators' Miikka Salomaki: Pointless drought reaches five games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/25/17) Salomaki was held off the scoresheet for the fifth straight game Friday against the Blues. He now has just two goals and three assists through 18 games this season.

    Salomaki's entire point production came in a short four-game burst at the start of November, so consistency is not exactly a cornerstone of his game. He remains locked into a fourth-line role and has averaged just nine minutes of ice time over his last six games. Needless to say, Salomaki's fantasy value remains confined to deeper formats at the present time.

    Predators' Miikka Salomaki: Ice time dwindles in loss to Rangers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/22/17) Salomaki played a season-low 8:01 in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Rangers. He played only 13 shifts the entire game, with just two of those coming in the third period.

    After turning heads in the preseason with his strong play, Salomaki has returned to his regular bottom-six role to start the season. He is averaging just a little over 12 minutes of ice time in six contests, and he's been a healthy scratch twice. He does not warrant any fantasy consideration at the present time.
