Wallmark picked up two power-play assists in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Panthers.
He helped set up Dominik Kubalik for tallies in the first and second periods. Wallmark came into Tuesday scoreless through three games and has posted fairly modest offensive numbers through his first two full NHL campaigns, but if continues seeing consistent power-play time, he could have value in deeper fantasy formats.
Wallmart and the Blackhawks agreed to a one-year, $950,000 deal Monday, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.
Wallmark scored 25 points in 67 games with the Hurricanes and Panthers last season, and Florida neglected to offer him a qualifying offer this offseason. The 25-year-old averaged 12:47 of ice time in those 67 games and should get similar playing time in Chicago's bottom six to start the 2020-21 campaign.
Wallmark didn't receive a qualifying offer from the Panthers and will become a UFA on Friday, George Richards of Panthers Press Box reports.
Wallmark was acquired by the Panthers as part of the return for Vincent Trocheck at the trade deadline in February. The 25-year-old Wallmark didn't make much of an impact with his new team, registering two points in seven appearances after the trade. The Panthers will let him walk, and the Swede will look to latch on somewhere else in a bottom-six role. He's produced at least 25 points in each of the last two seasons and should garner some interest.
Wallmark, along with Erik Haula, Chase Priskie and Eetu Luostarinen, were traded to Florida from Carolina on Monday in exchange for Vincent Trocheck, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Wallmark scored in Saturday's clash with Toronto, which ended a 15-game goal drought during which he recorded just one helper. The 24-year-old needs just six more points to top the 28 he put up in his first full NHL season last year. With the Panthers, the Swede will almost assuredly take on a bottom-six role.
Wallmark skated a season-low 6:59 in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Oilers.
Wallmark has now failed to register a point in 10 straight contests -- that's a four-week stretch dating back to Jan. 16 against the Blue Jackets. Not even a recent one-game stint as a healthy scratch Feb. 4 seems to have lit a fire under him. Once Jordan Martinook returns from an upper-body injury, you could see Wallmark watching more games from the press box. He should not be in anyone's fantasy lineup right now.
Wallmark (undisclosed) will watch Tuesday's game against St. Louis from the press box as a healthy scratch.
Wallmark exited Sunday's win over Vancouver in the third period after taking a big hit, but that evidently isn't the reason for his absence from the lineup Tuesday. It wouldn't be surprising to see him back in action against Arizona on Thursday.
Wallmark (undisclosed) had to go to the locker room after taking a big hit along the boards Sunday against the Canucks, Sara Civian of The Athletic reports.
Wallmark was hit hard by Tyler Myers and spent some time down on the ice before heading off to the locker room. His return should be considered questionable, with the game tied 3-3 in the third period at the time of his exit.
Wallmark scored a goal on a team-high five shots in Friday's 3-0 win over the Coyotes.
Wallmark got a piece of a shot from Dougie Hamilton, sending it past Antti Raanta in goal. After a brief two-game pointless run, Wallmark has goals in back to back games and five tallies in his last nine outings. The Swede is up to 21 points (10 scores, 11 helpers), 65 shots on goal and a minus-3 rating in 44 contests.
Wallmark recorded a point for the seventh straight game with an assist in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Canadiens.
Wait, what? The suddenly hot Wallmark -- who scored just eight points in his first 27 games -- racked up 11 points in 13 contests during the month of December, leaving him just one shy of the 20-point plateau heading into the New Year. While the spike in productivity will no doubt be welcomed by fantasy owners, keep in mind that a good chunk of Wallmark's December output came while he was subbing on the third line for the injured Erik Haula (knee). Since Haula's return to the lineup on Dec. 21, Wallmark has been back in his usual fourth-line role and seeing fewer minutes -- he played just 9:48 against the Habs on Tuesday. The good news is that the points just seem to keep coming for Wallmark regardless of which line he's playing on, so enjoy the hot streak while it lasts.
Wallmark earned an assist, a pair of shots, two hits and two PIM in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Avalanche.
Wallmark found Jaccob Slavin late in the third period, and the latter knocked in the game-winning goal. Wallmark has 12 points, 45 shots on goal and 31 hits in 35 appearances this year. He's limited to a bottom-six role on a deep offense, so don't expect much more than traces of point production.
Wallmark registered a power-play goal on his only shot of the game Tuesday in a 6-3 win over Winnipeg.
Wallmark opened the scoring late in the first period with his fifth goal of the season and his first with the man advantage. The 24-year-old has 11 points in 34 games this season, largely filling a bottom-six role for Carolina.
Wallmark snapped a seven-game pointless streak with a goal in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Wild.
Last season, Wallmark fell just two points shy of the 30-point mark, but that was partly because there was a stretch where he was playing a top-six role as an injury replacement. This season, he's back in a checking-line role centering the team's third line, and his numbers reflect that (nine points in 30 games). As such, a repeat of last season's production is currently not in the cards.
Wallmark had two assists and was plus-2 in Tuesday's 4-2 win over Chicago.
Wallmark assisted on goals by Martin Necas and Nino Niederreiter to help the Hurricanes build a 3-0 lead. It was his first game this season with multiple points, upping his season total to seven points in 20 games. That puts him on a similar pace to 2018-19, when he collected 28 points over 82 games in his first full NHL season.
Wallmark skated a season-low 8:55 in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Devils.
Wallmark was thrust into the Canes' No. 2 center role for a short period last season, subbing for injured Jordan Staal, allowing him to post a 28-point campaign in his first full season with the Canes. This year, however, he has been relegated mostly to fourth-line duty, which has resulted in significantly lower point totals and ice time. Through 14 games this season, Wallmark has just three points and has an average TOI of 11:08 (compared to 14:48 last year). Bottom line, a repeat of last season's success looks very unlikely at this point.
Wallmark has posted seven consecutive games without a point after scoring a goal in the season opener.
Wallmark is currently centering the Canes' fourth line between Warren Foegele and Brian Gibbons, and averaging just 11:02 of ice time compared to 14:48 last season. After falling just shy of the 30-point mark last year (28 points in 81 games), don't be surprised if Wallmark posts an even lower total this season given his reduced role in the lineup.
Wallmark scored his first career postseason goal in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Capitals in Game 2 of their first-round series.
The fourth-liner has assembled a three-game point streak with a goal and three helpers, dating back to the end of the regular season. He had a small breakout with 28 points in 81 regular-season appearances this year. Wallmark doesn't have much fantasy appeal, especially with the Hurricanes likely to lean on their stars more being down 2-0 in the series.
Wallmark tallied two assists Thursday, but Washington defeated the Hurricanes 4-2 in Game 1 of the best-of-seven series.
Both assists came on Andrei Svechnikov goals. Unfortunately, Carolina could not find an equalizing goal after getting to within one and actually conceded late to erase any thoughts of a comeback. For Wallmark, the two-point performance is out of character, as the bottom-six forward only managed 28 points in 81 regular-season games.
Wallmark scored his ninth goal and 26th point of the season in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Sabres.
Even though he's been bumped down to a checking-line role ever since Jordan Staal returned from the IR at the end of February, Wallmark continues to see a decent amount of ice time, averaging 14:42 per game since Staal's return. However, he's now centering the Canes' third line alongside Micheal Ferland and Jordan Martinook, so his opportunities to contribute offensively will be limited going forward. His fantasy value remains confined to deeper formats only.
Wallmark provided a helper in a 5-3 win over the Predators on Saturday.
Wallmark also recorded two hits and two PIM in the victory. In his first full season, Wallmark has generated 25 points (eight goals, 17 assists) in 67 appearances. He's also seen a modest 1:28 per game on the power play this season, where he has seven of his points, but he sees most of his time on the third line of a Hurricanes offense that scores three goals per game.
Wallmark had a power-play assist in 15:14 of ice time in Tuesday's win over the Kings.
The assist was his 15th of the season, and Wallmark has now produced a point in back-to-back games. Since the calendar turned to February, the 23-year-old has produced six points and seven blocks in 13 games. The fact that he's averaged 1:28 of power-play time per game this campaign will only add to his fantasy value.
