Predators' Eeli Tolvanen: Garners helper Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolvanen produced an assist and two hits in Friday's 3-1 win over the Blackhawks.

Tolvanen had the secondary assist on Ryan Johansen's second-period marker. The 22-year-old Tolvanen has two points in as many games since he returned from a lower-body injury that kept him out of the lineup for two weeks. The Finn is up to 21 points, 54 shots on net, 65 hits and a minus-6 rating through 33 outings. His solid production has made him a top-six option for the Predators.

Predators' Eeli Tolvanen: Provides jolt of offense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolvanen (lower body) scored a goal on three shots and dished out three hits Wednesday in a 5-4 overtime loss to Chicago.

Back in the lineup for the first time since April 6, the 21-year-old parked himself on top of the Chicago crease and tapped home a Viktor Arvidsson centering feed, tying the game at 1-1 late in the first period. Tolvanen was enjoying the most productive stretch of his young career prior to his injury, and he's now landed on the scoresheet in eight of his last 10 games, picking up five goals and six assists during that stretch. His shooting percentage (20.4) is likely to regress, but Tolvanen has first-round pedigree and is very much a name to remember for 2021-22.

Predators' Eeli Tolvanen: Making return Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolvanen (lower body) isn't listed among the scratches Wednesday against the Blackhawks, which means he'll make his return to the lineup.

Tolvanen's set for his first game action since April 6. He had been on a roll prior to sustaining the injury, racking up 10 points in his last nine games. While Tolvanen's exact spot in the lineup is unknown, he'll likely be deployed in a top-six role.

Predators' Eeli Tolvanen: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolvanen (lower body) is on the ice for Tuesday's practice, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

Tolvanen has been sidelined for two weeks with a lower-body injury, but his presence on the ice Tuesday suggests he could be ready to return sooner rather than later. The 31-year-old winger has picked up 10 goals and 19 points through 31 games this campaign.

Predators' Eeli Tolvanen: Considered week-to-week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolvanen is considered week-to-week with his lower-body injury.

This is a big loss for the Predators and fantasy managers alike, as Tolvanen has been red hot recently, having racked up four goals and 10 points in his last nine games. Due to the expected length of his absence, it wouldn't be surprising to see Tolvanen surface on injured reserve in the coming days.

Predators' Eeli Tolvanen: Scratched Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolvanen (lower body) won't play in Thursday's game versus the Red Wings.

The 21-year-old has been fantastic lately, producing 10 points and 20 hits over the last nine games. It's unclear how serious this injury is. His next opportunity to play is Saturday against the Lightning.

Predators' Eeli Tolvanen: Fires home game-winner Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolvanen scored the game-winning goal on the power play in Saturday's 3-0 victory over Chicago.

The 21-year-old saw his six-game point streak snapped Thursday, but Tolvanen wasted no time getting going again, lighting the lamp less than six minutes into the first period Saturday. The 30th overall pick in the 2017 draft has burst onto the scene with nine goals and 18 points in his last 22 contests, locking down a top-six spot in Nashville in the process and helping the club turn its season around after a rough start to 2020-21.

Predators' Eeli Tolvanen: Point streak at six games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolvanen scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Stars.

Tolvanen helped out on Roman Josi's power-play goal in the second period. In overtime, Tolvanen scored at the 1:28 mark to give the Predators a sixth straight win. Their winning streak has also seen the Finnish winger produce three goals and six assists during his personal point streak. The 21-year-old is up to 18 points (10 on the power play), 44 shots on net and 52 hits through 28 contests, which could earn him some buzz for the Calder Trophy.

Predators' Eeli Tolvanen: Riding five-game point streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolvanen notched an assist and four hits in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Blackhawks.

Tolvanen dropped a pass to Roman Josi for the Predators' game-winning goal at 13:27 of the third period. The assist gave Tolvanen a five-game point streak, during which he's racked up two goals and five helpers. The Finn is up to 16 points, 43 shots on net and 51 hits through 27 games. The 21-year-old is producing enough on offense, including a top-unit power-play role, to earn attention in standard fantasy formats.

Predators' Eeli Tolvanen: Bulges twine Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolvanen scored a power-play goal and added three hits in Thursday's 7-1 win over the Red Wings.

Tolvanen's first-period marker stood as the game-winner, even if a four-goal game from Rocco Grimaldi stole the spotlight. The 21-year-old Tolvanen has a pair of tallies and three helpers during his three-game point streak. He's at eight goals, six assists, 39 shots on net and 46 hits through 25 appearances. With top-six duties and a hearty power-play role, the Finn is worth a look for fantasy managers who need a boost in scoring.

Predators' Eeli Tolvanen: Contributes power-play helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolvanen posted a power-play assist in Tuesday's 2-0 win over the Red Wings.

Tolvanen set up Roman Josi for a shot that was tipped by Mikael Granlund for the opening tally. The 21-year-old Tolvanen has picked up four goals and five assists in 12 games in March. The Finn is up to 13 points, 43 hits, 38 shots on net and a minus-6 rating through 24 appearances overall.

Predators' Eeli Tolvanen: First career three-point game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolvanen scored a goal and added a pair of assists in Sunday's 4-3 shootout win over the Stars.

Tolvanen factored in on each of the Predators' goals in regulation. He had secondary assists on Ryan Johansen's power-play tally in the first period and Filip Forsberg's even-strength marker in the second before scoring one of his own in the third. Tolvanen has amassed seven goals, 12 points, 38 shots on net and 43 hits through 23 contests. The first-round pick from 2017 has become a steady presence in the top six this year.

Predators' Eeli Tolvanen: Notches two power-play points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolvanen scored a goal and dished an assist, both on the power play, in Sunday's 4-3 shootout win over the Stars.

Tolvanen collected a helper on Mikael Granlund's first-period tally before scoring one of his own in the second. The 21-year-old Tolvanen is growing more comfortable by the game -- he has four goals and two helpers in his last eight outings. The Finn saw second-line usage Sunday, which should continue if he keeps producing. Tolvanen has seven points, 29 shots on net and 26 hits in 16 contests.

Predators' Eeli Tolvanen: Thriving on power play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolvanen scored his third power-play goal in his last seven games during Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Panthers.

After playing mostly in the AHL and KHL over the past three years since being drafted 30th overall in the 2017 Entry Draft, Tolvanen finally appears to have secured himself a regular spot in the Preds' lineup. Now with five points in 15 games since being promoted to the big club at the beginning of February, the 21-year-old Finn is finally starting to show his offensive prowess, especially with the man advantage. From a fantasy perspective, grab this guy off your league's waiver wire if you can -- his game is definitely on an upswing right now.

Predators' Eeli Tolvanen: Up to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolvanen was promoted to the active roster ahead of Tuesday's game versus the Hurricanes.

As expected, Tolvanen will suit up for Tuesday's contest. The 21-year-old continues to get more comfortable at the NHL level, as he's recorded two goals, an assist and 11 shots on net over the past four games. Tolvanen is slated to play in a top-six role.

Predators' Eeli Tolvanen: Paper move to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolvanen was designated for the taxi squad Monday.

This is purely a paper move, as Tolvanen will undoubtedly be back on the active roster for Tuesday's home game versus the Hurricanes. After all, the 21-year-old posted two goals and an assist over the past four contests.

Predators' Eeli Tolvanen: Up to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolvanen was promoted to the active roster ahead of Saturday's game versus the Blue Jackets.

This roster shuffling is standard. Tolvanen is slated to play in his seventh straight game when he takes the ice against the Blue Jackets on Saturday. The 21-year-old has recorded two goals and an assist across 10 contests this year.

February 27, 2021 12:01 AM
Predators' Eeli Tolvanen: Dropped to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolvanen was demoted to the taxi squad Friday, CBS Sports reports.

Tolvanen has been in the lineup for 10 of Nashville's last 11 games, scoring three points and racking up 19 hits during that span. The 21-year-old winger should be recalled before Saturday's matchup against Columbus.

Predators' Eeli Tolvanen: Distributes power-play assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolvanen posted a power-play assist and two shots on goal in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Red Wings.

Tolvanen had the secondary helper on Mikael Granlund's first-period tally. The 21-year-old Tolvanen has a power-play point in each of the last two contests. He's up to three points, 13 shots on net and 19 hits through 10 outings. While he only sees bottom-six minutes at even strength, Tolvanen's top-unit power-play work could make him worth a look in deeper fantasy formats and DFS. He's played in 10 of the Predators' last 11 games -- while he'll often shuffle between the taxi squad and the active roster, he's essentially a lock for game-day lineups at this stage of the season.
