  • Predators' Miikka Salomaki: Enters arbitration

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/6/18) Salomaki filed for salary arbitration ahead of Thursday's deadline, according to NHLPA.com.

    Even if an arbiter has to settle on a new deal for Salomaki, he'll be hard-pressed to see a sizable monetary increase compared to his two-year, $1.225 million contract that expired last Sunday. After all, the spare winger has recorded just 19 points in 125 contests with the Predators.

    Predators' Miikka Salomaki: Set to remain in Smashville

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/26/18) Salomaki received a qualifying offer from the Predators on Monday.

    Salomaki's first standard contract is about to expire. Interestingly enough, he brought home more dough on a per-year basis ($780,883) over a three-year, entry-level contract than the amount he earned on his latest deal which was met with a $612,500 annual rake between two seasons. It's obviously a good sign that the competitive Preds plan to re-sign him, but Salomaki only collected eight points in 58 games to wind up in the fantasy hockey scrap heap last season.

    Predators' Miikka Salomaki: Expected back as injury replacement

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/15/18) Salomaki, a healthy scratch for the past four games, will return to the lineup with the recent injury to Calle Jarnkrok (upper body), Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports.

    "Salomaki gets back into the lineup," coach Peter Laviolette said Thursday when discussing the team's forward depth that he expects will minimize the impact of Jarnkrok's absence. Salomaki has just seven points in 48 games this season and was routinely seeing fewer than 10 minutes per game on the fourth line prior to his recent benching, so he still doesn't boast a lot of fantasy value in most formats. His next chance to suit up will come Thursday against the Coyotes.

    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.
