  • Hurricanes' Lee Stempniak: Ice time on decline

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/11/18) Stempniak snapped a six-game pointless streak with an assist in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Avalanche.

    After missing the first half of the season with an upper-body injury, Stempniak returned to the lineup in mid-January and was immediately slotted into a top-six role, averaging 14:32 in ice time his first nine games back. Since then, however, he has been dropped to the fourth line, with his minutes falling to the 7-10 range. His fantasy value takes a sharp decline as a result. Look for a replacement.

    Hurricanes' Lee Stempniak: Four points in six games following return from IR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/28/18) Stempniak had a goal and three assists in six games prior to the All-Star break, adding six shots on goal and 10 hits over that span.

    Stempniak has certainly made his presence felt after missing the first half of the season to an upper-body injury. Stempy registered 40 points in 82 games last season, so his return to the lineup is very positive news for the Canes, who currently sit just four points out of a playoff spot in the East. He makes for a good waiver-wire pickup candidate in deeper formats.

    Hurricanes' Lee Stempniak: Bags apple in season debut

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/12/18) Stempniak delivered an assist in his season debut Friday night against the Capitals, but it wasn't enough as the Hurricanes lost 4-3 in Raleigh.

    The veteran recorded 13:35 of ice time, which was a few minutes lower than his average from last season, but we recommend that you practice patience with Stempniak. He's a no-frills playmaker who could start seeing power-play ice time once he gets his legs back.

    Hurricanes' Lee Stempniak: Likely returning later in week

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/9/18) Stempniak (upper body) is not scheduled to play Tuesday night's game in Tampa Bay, but will likely draw into the lineup for either or both of Carolina's games against Washington on Thursday and Friday, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

    The wait for Stempniak's season debut just got a little longer, but all signs point to the veteran winger finally cracking the lineup later in the week in the home-and-home series against the Capitals. The New York native is by no means a fantasy stud, but he can be useful in the right matchup and could especially be so with his fresh legs coming in around the midpoint of the season.

    Hurricanes' Lee Stempniak: Cleared to play

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/8/18) Stempniak (upper body) was activated off injured reserve Monday.

    Stempniak figures to return to the lineup in a bottom-six role against the Lightning on Tuesday. The winger was close to making his 2017-18 debut in mid-November, but suffered an upper-body injury while on a conditioning assignment for a separate back ailment. With half the season remaining, the New York native should be capable of reaching the 20-point mark and could push for 30.
