Donato posted a power-play assist and four shots on goal in Friday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Golden Knights.
Donato set up Brent Burns' tally in the second period to begin the Sharks' comeback efforts. The 24-year-old Donato snapped his five-game point drought with the assist. He's slipped to third-line duties during his slump, but the Massachusetts native is at nine points, 45 shots on goal, 21 hits and 10 PIM through 21 appearances.
Donato posted an assist, four hits and two PIM in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Blues.
Donato has dropped into a third-line role, leading to his assist on John Leonard's tally in the second period. The helper snapped a three-game point drought for Donato, who is up to eight points, 27 shots on goal, eight PIM and 14 hits in 15 contests this year.
Donato notched an assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout win over the Kings.
Donato set up Timo Meier for the opening goal just 1:20 into the contest. The 24-year-old Donato has settled in fairly well to a top-six role -- he has seven points and 22 shots on net through 11 games. He'll likely have a bit more appeal in DFS than in season-long formats, as Donato's offense can still be a bit inconsistent, but he's on pace to top 30 points for the first time in his career.
Donato recorded an assist and two PIM in Friday's 5-4 shootout win over the Ducks.
Donato got the puck to the front of the net, at which point Brent Burns cashed in the Sharks' fourth goal of the game. With five points in his last four games, Donato's been hot in a top-six role for the Sharks. The Massachusetts native is up to six points, 19 shots on goal and four PIM through nine outings. He could be poised for a breakout year on the scoresheet, but that comes with only modest contributions in the non-scoring metrics.
Donato scored a goal on a team-high five shots and added an assist in Tuesday's 7-3 loss to the Avalanche.
While it wasn't a great result for the team, Donato's line with Logan Couture and Kevin Labanc combined for six points. It's the second time in as many games Donato has produced multiple points. The 24-year-old winger has three goals, two helpers, 19 shots on net and a minus-4 rating through seven contests. Consider giving Donato a look in DFS -- a top-line role gives him a boost in fantasy value.
Donato scored a goal and added a power-play assist in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Wild.
Donato got a little revenge against the team that traded him for a third-round pick in October. His two-point performance snapped a three-game dry spell. Donato has three points, 14 shots on goal and a minus-5 rating through six contests. A top-six skater for the Sharks, his fantasy value remains limited to deeper formats given his inconsistency.
Donato was brought in by the Sharks from the Wild on Monday in exchange for a 2021 third-round pick.
Donato is coming off a career year in which he set personal bests in goals (14), points (23) and games played (62). The Boston native figures to slot into a third-line role with San Jose but could still push for the 30-point mark in a full 82-game season. As such, Donato should offer solid mid-range fantasy value, especially in deeper formats.
Donato potted a goal on four shots and added four hits in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Capitals.
Donato has three goals and two assists over his last four games -- his line with Mikko Koivu and Ryan Hartman has begun to carry some of the scoring load in Minnesota. Through 58 contests this year, Donato has 23 points, 90 shots and 45 hits. He needs just two more points to match last year's career-high output.
Donato recorded a goal and an assist in Thursday's 7-1 win over the Red Wings.
Donato skated 12:44 in this contest, which may not seem like much but represented his second-highest ice time total since Dec. 23. With a goal and an assist in each of his last two games, Donato could finally be earning the larger role most anticipated him to play for the Wild this season.
Donato registered a goal and an assist with three shots in Tuesday's 5-4 win over Columbus.
Donato scored his 12th goal of the year in the final minute of the first period to put the Wild up 2-1. He also assisted on a Mikko Koivu goal in the second that extended Minnesota's lead to 4-1. Donato's two-point night came despite logging a team-low 10:37 of ice time, giving him 20 points in 55 games in a depth role for the Wild.
Donato scored a goal on two shots and had two PIM in Thursday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Rangers.
Donato opened the scoring with a backhander midway through the first period, registering his 11th goal of the season. That tops the career-high 10 tallies he totaled last year between Boston and Minnesota. The third-year center has 18 points in 51 games on the season.
Donato netted a goal in Friday's 3-2 win over the Stars.
Donato tied the game at two with his second-period tally. The 23-year-old has four points and 10 shots in his last five contests, but his playing time has been inconsistent lately. He's at 10 goals, 17 points, 75 shots and 32 hits in 48 games.
Donato scored a goal and added a power-play helper in Saturday's 7-0 win over the Stars.
Donato also had a team-high six shots on goal and went plus-2 in the blowout win. The 23-year-old entered Saturday on a six-game point drought -- he needed a big game as much as anyone. He's now at 15 points, 71 shots and 30 hits in 44 contests this season. Donato is still a fourth-line player under Bruce Boudreau, so fantasy owners should be cautious with adding the Boston native.
Donato scored a goal on three shots in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Islanders.
Donato broke the ice with his eighth goal of the season late in the first period, but the Islanders countered with three unanswered goals in the final frame. The 23-year-old Donato plays a limited role for the Wild -- he had just under 11 minutes of ice time Sunday -- and has produced 13 points in 37 games.
Donato scored a goal in Thursday's 8-5 win over the Coyotes.
Donato's tally early in the second period tied the score at one, but the forward didn't factor into any of the later scoring chaos. The 23-year-old has done well in a limited role, with four goals and a helper through nine December games. He's at 11 points, 52 shots on goal and 25 hits through 33 appearances this season.
Donato lit the lamp and had five shots in Saturday's 6-2 loss to Carolina.
After potting just three points through his first 21 games, Donato has exploded for three goals and four points in the last six. The Boston native has gotten out of head coach Bruce Boudreau's doghouse a bit, seeing time centering the team's second line with Mikko Koivu (lower body) sidelined. With Koivu expected to miss at least the next three games, Donato has a phenomenal opportunity to continue his scoring pace and establish himself in a larger role for the rest of the season.
Donato has just one goal and three points while averaging 10:03 of average ice time through the first 20 games this campaign.
Unfortunately for Donato, he hasn't quite gotten out of coach Bruce Boudreau's doghouse this season and has almost exclusively been glued to a bottom-six role. Things looked up last season when he was traded for Charlie Coyle from Boston, but with general manager Paul Fenton relieved of his duties, Donato could be expendable for new general manager Bill Guerin. At any rate, Donato doesn't appear to have much value from a fantasy perspective, but could see a boost to his stock should be be dished elsewhere.
Donato scored a goal and dished two hits in Thursday's 6-5 loss to the Sharks.
The goal was Donato's first of the year in his 14th game. With three points in 2019-20, it's been disappointing early on for the 23-year-old. He had 25 points in 56 games between the Bruins and Wild last season, so expectations for his production have not been met at this stage of the year.
Donato had two shots on goal, posted minus-1 rating and logged 13:28 of ice time in Thursday's loss to the Predators.
Donato skated on the Wild's third line with Luke Kunin and Jordan Greenway. Minnesota's top line struggled Thursday, so head coach Bruce Boudreau may switch things up ahead of Saturday's matchup with Colorado. Donato worked on the top line as a center between Zach Parise and Mats Zuccarello in training camp, but that experiment didn't last long. It may take a few games before the Wild figure out where Donato fits in best.
Donato signed a two-year, $3.8 million contract with the Wild on Tuesday.
After making the move from Boston to Minnesota at the deadline, Donato notched four goals, 12 helpers and 64 shots while averaging 15:33 of ice time. The 22-year-old's increased role with his new team should see him continue to be mildly productive heading into 2019-20. The winger should be capable of pushing for the 30-point mark and could see some time in the top six.
