Van Riemsdyk tallied an assist and a plus-3 rating while logging 18:07 of ice time during Saturday's 6-3 win over the Islanders.
Van Riemsdyk has been pressed into service with Justin Schultz (lower body) out of the lineup and figures to fill the void on the second defense pairing while the latter heals up. The 29-year-old has two points in 12 games and isn't likely to yield significant fantasy dividends.
Van Riemsdyk signed a two-year, $1.9 million contract extension with the Capitals on Sunday, Frank Seravalli of TSN.ca reports.
Van Riemsdyk has served as a healthy scratch more often than not this season, but the Capitals value his veteran presence and the depth he provides on the blue line. Through nine games this year, he's recorded a goal, eights shots and 13 blocked shots.
Head coach Peter Laviolette indicated his satisfaction with Washington's defense corps, indicating that van Riemsdyk is likely to remain in a depth role for the forseeable future, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Van Riemsdyk has posted a single goal in seven games this season and has not drawn into the lineup since Feb. 7. The 29-year-old defender can be safely ignored for fantasy purposes until his prospects for playing time improve.
Van Riemsdyk tallied a goal, a plus-2 rating, two hits and two blocked shots while logging 20:23 of ice time during Saturday's 4-3 overtime win against the Bruins.
The marker was van Riemsdyk's first point with the Capitals after joining the team as a free agent in October of 2020. The 29-year-old is likely to have difficulty securing regular ice time on a deep Washington defense corps now that Dmitry Orlov has returned from COVID-19 quarantine, and therefore he has very limited fantasy appeal.
Van Riemsdyk will be in the lineup Sunday against the Sabres, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.
Van Riemsdyk will make his debut for the Capitals in place of Nick Jensen on the third defense pairing. Having never eclipsed the 20-point barrier in a single season, the 29-year-old has yet to establish himself as a fantasy-worthy asset.
Van Riemsdyk signed a one-year, $800,000 contract with the Capitals on Saturday, Frank Seravalli of TSN.ca reports.
Van Riemsdyk spent a lot of time as a healthy scratch with the Hurricanes last season, as he played 49 games and recorded eight points. The 29-year-old will have an opportunity to carve out a more consistent role with the Capitals, but his ceiling is as a third-pairing defenseman.
Van Riemsdyk scored his first goal of the season in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Oilers.
Now with just six points through 39 games, van Riemsdyk still does not offer any real fantasy appeal in most standard formats. He has consistently finished in the 14-16 point range over the past four campaigns, but he'll be lucky to crack double digits this year due to the amount of time he spent as a healthy scratch earlier in the season. The good news is Sunday marked the 15th straight game in the lineup for TVR after Dougie Hamilton went down with a broken leg back in mid-January.
Van Riemsdyk posted two assists, two blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Coyotes.
Van Riemsdyk hadn't been on the scoresheet since Dec. 7 when he had an assist versus the Wild. The 28-year-old defenseman has been limited to five helpers in 35 games this season. While he's now seeing an everyday role with Dougie Hamilton (leg) out, van Riemsdyk is mostly a defensive player. Don't expect much fantasy value from the New Jersey native.
Van Riemsdyk played in his eighth consecutive game Friday against the Golden Knights, skating a season-high 17:56, but still posted zeros across the board in points, hits, blocked shots and shots on goal.
Van Riemsdyk has been in and out of the Hurricanes' lineup all season, vying for time on the third defensive pairing. However, with Dougie Hamilton currently on IR with a broken leg, it's all hands on deck and TVR is finally starting to see some regular minutes. That said, he is still as unproductive as ever from a fantasy standpoint, so the fact that he's now playing every game really doesn't affect his fantasy value that much.
Van Riemsdyk served as a healthy scratch for the third straight game Friday against the Capitals.
Van Riemsdyk is currently platooning with Haydn Fleury for a spot on the Hurricanes' third defensive pairing opposite Joel Edmundson. With just three assists under his belt and an average ice time of 13:29, van Riemsdyk's fantasy value is hovering pretty close to zero right now. Feel free to bench or drop him outright.
Van Riemsdyk was held off the scoresheet for the fourth consecutive game in Monday's 8-6 loss to the Maple Leafs.
With an average TOI of just 13:28 this season -- the lowest of his career -- Van Riemsdyk continues to log modest minutes on the Canes' third defensive pairing opposite Jake Gardiner. Scoring-wise, he has just three points in 23 games, giving him essentially zero fantasy value in all but the deepest of formats.
Van Riemsdyk returned to the lineup Saturday against the Lightning after serving the previous two games as a healthy scratch. He skated just 12:46 with two hits and two PIM.
Van Riemsdyk played most of the game on the third defensive pairing with either Jake Gardiner or Haydn Fleury. However, since the Canes only dressed 11 forwards for this game, he was technically skating as a forward for a handful of shifts. Either way, with just two points in 15 games this season, his fantasy impact has been nonexistent.
Van Riemsdyk returned to the ice Saturday against the Wild after sitting out the prior two games as a healthy scratch. He skated just 12:17 and finished the game with no points, one shot on goal and a minus-1 rating.
After missing just four games last season, van Riemsdyk suddenly finds himself platooning with Haydn Fleury for a spot on the Canes' bottom defensive pairing this season. Unfortunately for TVR, the emergence of Joel Edmundson as a top-four blueliner likely means he will see a significant drop in games played this season.
Van Riemsdyk notched his second assist in three games in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Flyers.
It's nice to see van Riemsdyk post the occasional point, but from a fantasy perspective he still doesn't hold much value. He continues to skate on the Canes' third defensive pairing, averaging just 14:04 in ice time -- about a minute less than he did last season. It's also worth mentioning that the 28-year-old blueliner has never reached the 20-point plateau in his six-year NHL career. There are better options out there.
Van Riemsdyk (shoulder) managed one hit in 11:28 during Friday's 4-2 loss to the Ducks.
Making his season debut, van Riemsdyk wasn't able to do much in a seven-defensemen lineup. The 28-year-old produced three goals and 11 helpers in 78 games last season, but he's not likely to play higher than the third pairing.
Van Riemsdyk (shoulder) is in line to return to the lineup for Friday's contest against the Ducks, Michael Smith of NHL.com reports.
Van Riemsdyk is slated for his season debut after missing the first eight contests of the campaign. Considering he hasn't topped 16 points in either of his two seasons with the Hurricanes, the blueliner's upside from a fantasy standpoint remains low.
Van Riemsdyk will not play Saturday against the Blue Jackets, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

Van Riemsdyk (shoulder) was activated from non-roster injured reserve Saturday, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.
The news means van Riemsdyk can play Saturday against the Blue Jackets, but no word yet on whether he'll be in the Hurricanes' lineup. The defenseman missed his team's first five games with a shoulder injury and is coming off a 2018-19 campaign that saw van Riemsdyk finish with 14 points. Another update on his status for Saturday's contest should surface before puck drop.
Van Riemsdyk (shoulder) won't be in the lineup for Friday's matchup with the Islanders, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Van Riemsdyk is still working his way back from offseason shoulder surgery, and the Hurricanes have no reason to rush him, as they've gone 4-0-0 to start the season without the 28-year-old blueliner. Van Riemsdyk will need to be activated off the injured-reserve/non-roster list prior to making his season debut, so another update on his status should be released once that occurs.
Van Riemsdyk (shoulder) won't be in action against the Lightning on Sunday.
Van Riemsdyk will miss his third consecutive game due to his lingering shoulder issue. The blueliner notched 14 points in 78 contests last year, which is likely his ceiling for the 2019-20 campaign as well, which makes him a mid-range fantasy option at best.
