    • Wild loan Kuemper to AHL for conditioning
      Darcy Kuemper has been sent to AHL Iowa on a conditioning assignment.

      Advice: He can be there for up to two weeks. That leaves Devan Dubnyk as Minnesota's likely starter and Niklas Backstrom as the backup. Kuemper made his return to the lineup last Tuesday in a relief appearance against Detroit and he stopped all 14 shots he faced. He missed six games with a lower-body injury before that. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: That's a tough blow for the Islanders, as Okposo is the second on the team with 44 points in 46 games. He's formed an excellent tandem with John Tavares this season. Ryan Strome could be a candidate to replace Okposo on the top line. Rotoworld.com

      As expected, Ryan White is back up with the Philadelphia Flyers.

      Advice: He was projected to be called up after the All-Star break. White will get a chance to play with Zac Rinaldo suspended. White had surgery in the off-season to repair a torn pectoralis muscle injury, so when he suits up for the Flyers it will be his debut with the team. Rotoworld.com

    • Aaron Ekblad records 4 assists in first ASG
      Aaron Ekblad collected four assists at the NHL All-Star Game on Sunday.

      Advice: "You kind of cringe at it for a second," smiled Ekblad referring to the 17-12 score. "Your plus-minus is taking quite a hit. It's just a fun experience." The 18-year-old blueliner got a chance to play in his first All-Star Game due to an injury to Colorado's Erik Johnson, but he'll probably be involved in plenty more of these events. Rotoworld.com

    • John Tavares jokes about All-Star MVP snub
      John Tavares wasn't upset over being snubbed for the All-Star MVP.

      Advice: Tavares had four goals, but the award and car that came with it instead went to hometown favorite Ryan Johansen, as per a fan vote. "I had my parents, two sisters and girlfriend here, and they all said they wanted a new car," Tavares said. "So it's almost good that I didn't win." He's the sixth player in history to get four goals in a NHL All-Star Game. Rotoworld.com

    • Rick Nash got booed regularly during ASG
      Rick Nash shrugged off the booing he received during the All-Star Game in Columbus.

      Advice: "That's how it's been for the last three years," Nash said, "so I expected it." Nash used to be the face of the Blue Jackets' franchise, but the fact that he demanded a trade guaranteed that he would be leaving on poor terms. He ended up on Team Toews against the hometown favorites Team Foligno. Nash scored twice to help Toews earn a 17-12 victory. Rotoworld.com

    • John Tavares scores four in Team Toews' win
      John Tavares scored four goals in Team Toews' 17-12 win over Team Foligno in Sunday's NHL All-Star game.

      Advice: The four goals tie an NHL All-Star game record which he now shares with five others. The 17 goals scored by Team Toews and the 29 goals combined are both All-Star game records. Flyers' forward Jakub Voracek led all skaters with six points, while Jonathan Toews (Blackhawks) and Patrice Bergeron (Bruins) had five points each. Rotoworld.com

    • No word yet about possible postponement Tues
      Up to two feet of snow is expected to hit the New York City and Long Island area starting on Monday morning, but there's still no word if the Islanders will take on the Rangers Tuesday evening.

      Advice: While those involved in the actual traveling won't appreciate the "wait and see approach", it makes sense to first see how the five boroughs and two counties respond to the downfall. At the earliest, we'll know Monday afternoon. The Islanders lead the Metropolitan with 63 points, three more ahead of Pittsburgh, and five ahead of the Rangers, who currently own the third slot in the Metro. Rotoworld.com

    • Aaron Ekblad is youngest D in ASG history
      Aaron Ekblad is the youngest defenseman to ever suit up in the NHL All-Star game.

      Advice: Ekblad will only turn 19 on February 7th. The first overall pick in last year's NHL entry draft has had an incredible rookie season for the Panthers. Ekblad has six goals, 25 points and a plus-7 rating while averaging over 22:00 minutes per game for Florida. He will definitely be in the Calder trophy (top rookie) conversation at the end of the season. Rotoworld.com

    • Flyers expected to recall Ryan White
      Look for the Philadelphia Flyers to recall Ryan White before Tuesday's game against Arizona.

      Advice: The Flyers will need to recall a forward with Zac Rinaldo being suspended for six games before the All-Star break and it looks like it will be the former Hab. White has not played in the NHL this season as he underwent surgery to repair a torn pectoralis muscle injury suffered in the off-season. He has a goal and three points in 11 AHL games thus far but his limited fantasy value will be in penalty minutes in traditional pools. Rotoworld.com

    • Kyle Okposo hot of late for the Islanders
      Kyle Okposo has six goals and 12 points in his last nine games.

      Advice: Of course a four goal game won't hurt that stat as Okposo managed to do on January 16. Okposo has been hot, along with linemate John Tavares, who has six goals and 13 points in the same nine games. Okposo has 14 goals and 44 points in 46 games which ranks him tied for 13th in NHL scoring, along with Phil Kessel and Henrik Zetterberg. Rotoworld.com

    • Tavares: Isles improved due to acquisitions
      John Tavares says the vast improvement of the Islanders who were the 26th best team last season but are currently fourth best in the NHL, have to do with the acquisitions of Jaroslav Halak, Johnny Boychuck, Nick Leddy and others.

      Advice: Garth Snow was certainly busy in the off-season and the lead up to the start of the regular season. "You look at the depth of our team and the contributions everyone has made in all places -- up front, the back end and goaltending,'' Tavares said. "You really see everyone has kind of identified with the way they need to play, within the team concept. "It's a great mix." Of course, it never hurts to have a great talent like Tavares on your team. Rotoworld.com

    • Sergei Bobrovsky out at least a month
      Michael Arace of the Columbus Dispatch reports that Sergei Bobrovsky will miss at least a month of action with a groin injury.

      Advice: Bobrovsky was all set to play in net in the All-Star game which is being played in Columbus, so that was a big blow as well. He had flown in his father from Siberia to watch the All-Star festivities, only to pick up the injury to the right side of his groin. "It is sad, really sad," Bobrovsky said with a wilting voice. "I wanted to play in front of my fans, with my teammates (Ryan Johansen and Foligno). It’s the first time (as an) All-Star for me. It was the first time for my city. It was so special, and I am so disappointed right now." Rotoworld.com

    • Rick Nash has eight power-play points
      Rick Nash has the fewest power-play points (eight) among the top-20 point producers in the NHL.

      Advice: The Rangers winger has 28 goals and 15 assists this season, with four of each coming with the man advantage. Notable because even some think Nash will slow down in the second half, he hasn’t exactly lit the world on fire on the power play, where he’s averaging 2:54 per game. Rotoworld.com

    • Rick Nash, Tyler Seguin tied for goals lead
      Tyler Seguin and Rick Nash are currently tie for the NHL lead in goals with 28.

      Advice: Nash is on a better pace, collecting those 28 tallies in 44 games (compared to Seguin doing so in 46). Seguin is taking more SOG, as he has 192 to Nash's 162. As of this writing, 11 players are over 20 goals in 2014-15. Rotoworld.com

      Tyler Seguin said he believes the Boston Bruins gave up on him too early.

      Advice: No kidding. Seguin had 121 points in three seasons with the Bruins, but he's scored 136 points in just 126 games as a member of the Dallas Stars. "Now that it’s all completely in the past, I can give you my honest answer. Do I think the Bruins gave up on me too early? Yes, I 100 percent believe that," said Seguin. "I had hoped to stay in Boston for a long time. I even put a deposit down on a house there just months before I was traded. I never got to move in." Rotoworld.com

    • First All-Star game trade happens Friday
      Team Foligno and Team Toews completed the first trade in All-Star game history on Friday night.

      Advice: Team Foligno traded Tyler Seguin to Team Toews in exchange for Phil Kessel. The joke here is that Tyler Seguin and Phil Kessel were involved in a trade between the Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs in 2009. The deal originally worked out well for both teams, but Seguin has since been traded to Dallas. If anything, Friday's trade will be seen as one of the funniest moments of this year's All-Star weekend. Rotoworld.com

    • Coach thinks Nash has 'purpose' this season
      Coach Alain Vigneault came into camp with a 'purpose' this season.

      Advice: Nash has been a huge force in 2014-15 for the Rangers and is tied for the NHL lead with Tyler Seguin as both have 28 goals. Nash apparently ran a lot during the summer and added some cardio and as a result came into camp in terrific shape. The results speak for themselves. Rotoworld.com

    • Sergei Bobrovsky hurts right side of groin
      Sergei Bobrovsky's groin injury is to his right side unlike his previous groin injury last season which was on the left side.

      Advice: Bobrovsky missed 14 games with the injury in 2013-14 and this one will keep him out 'a while' according to GM Jarmo Kekalainen. Anton Forsberg is expected to be recalled after the All-Star game and he could see a lot of action, sharing the net with Curtis McElhinney. Rotoworld.com

    • Sergei Bobrovsky to miss significant time
      Columbus Blue Jackets' GM Jarmo Kekalainen has said that "it's gonna be a while" for star goalie Sergei Bobrovsky.

      Advice: Bob is sidelined with a right groin injury he suffered Wednesday's final game before this weekend's All-Star break. Through 33 games and 26 starts, he's put forth a 16-15-2 record with a .913 save percentage and a 2.85 GAA. The Blue Jackets come into the break 25th in the NHL with 43 points in the standings.

    • Aaron Ekblad will play in All-Star Game
      Aaron Ekblad will participate in the All-Star Game.

      Advice: Ekblad was already in Columbus for the rookie showcase, so it was convenient for the NHL to use him in place of Erik Johnson. Ekblad is having a great rookie season with nine goals and 25 points in 42 games. Rotoworld.com

    • Erik Johnson ruled out for all-star game
      Colorado Avalanche defenseman Erik Johnson has been ruled out for Sunday's NHL All-Star game with a lower-body injury.

      Advice: The 26-year-old has 12 goals and 23 points in 47 games so far this season. This is probably good news for fantasy owners, as Johnson can use the weekend to rest and recharge to bolster his attempt to match the terrific first half he's had to the season. No replacement has been named yet, but you can bet P.K. Subban will be a trending topic. Rotoworld.com

      Sergei Bobrovsky won't be able to attend the All-Star Game after he sustained a lower-body injury Wednesday night.

      Advice: Columbus doesn't have a timetable for his return. Bobrovsky was selected to take part in his first All-Star Game and it would've be fun for him to do so in front of the Blue Jackets' crowd. St. Louis Blues goalie Brian Elliott will take Bobrovsky's place. Rotoworld.com

    • Kris Letang (head) will undergo more tests
      Kris Letang has undergone concussion testing, but the Penguins haven't diagnosed him with one yet.

      Advice: "I believe he will continue to undergo tests," GM Jim Rutherford said. "We'll be real cautious with this." Letang probably won't be available when Pittsburgh returns from the All-Star break. However, a timetable for his return isn't clear right now. He was injured on a hit from Philadelphia's Zac Rinaldo on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com

    • Bieksa has hand surgery, out indefinitely
      Kevin Bieksa underwent surgery on Wednesday due to a broken hand.

      Advice: Bieksa is out indefinitely due to the injury. If there's a silver lining it's that the All-Star break just started, so the first week of his recovery won't involve him missing any contests. He has nine points and 63 penalty minutes in 45 contests in 2014-15. Rotoworld.com

    • Sergei Bobrovsky forced to leave early
      Sergei Bobrovsky was forced to leave Wednesday's game with the Jets with an apparent lower body injury.

      Advice: He looked to kick his leg out on a shot attempt and stretched out a muscle the wrong way. It has a been a nightmare of a season so far for Bobrovsky injuries wise, but he looked to be getting back on the right track of late until this occurrence. Good news is that the All-Star break is here and he and the Blue Jackets will have plenty of time to figure out a proper diagnosis. Hopefully it's just a precaution as we will know more with his MRI scheduled for tomorrow. He will likely miss the All-Star game festivities. Rotoworld.com

      Star defenseman Erik Karlsson scored on two of his slap shots in the Senators' 4-3 triumph over the hapless Toronto Maple Leafs in Ottawa Wednesday night.

      Advice: Karlsson enters the all-star break with 11 goals. He scored his first goal Wednesday in the first period, after which the Sens led 3-0. Mike Hoffman opened the scoring with his 16th goal of the season at 2:02. At 11:53, Hoffman assisted on Karlsson's first goal. Mika Zibanejad netted his 11th goal of the season with 20 seconds left in the first. The Leafs woke up and narrowed the gap to 3-2 until Karlsson slapped in his second goal at 15:20 of the third period. Rotoworld.com

      Kris Letang (head) will not be able to suit up for Wednesday's tilt against the Blackhawks.

      Advice: Updating an earlier report, Letang will in fact be watching from the sidelines Wednesday. Newly called up Derrick Pouliot will take his place on the blue line.

      Andrew Ebbett is in the lineup for the Penguins Wednesday night against Chicago.

      Advice: With Evgeni Malkin unable to dress Wednesday, Ebbett will get his chance in Wednesday's contest with the Hawks. Ebbett hasn't seen game action since January 7th and offers little fantasy value as he's posted just one goal and four assists in 17 games this year. Rotoworld.com

    • Kris Letang is doubtful Wednesday
      It looks like Kris Letang (head) won't play on Wednesday.

      Advice: That's not set in stone, but we wouldn't count on Letang being on the ice. He might have suffered a concussion due to a high hit from Zac Rinaldo on Tuesday. If there's any silver lining at all, it's that Letang will have an opportunity to rest without missing more contests during the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com

      Sergei Bobrovsky will be in net for the Blue Jackets Wednesday in Winnipeg.

      Advice: Bobrovsky will look for redemption Wednesday night against the Jets after dropping his previous game with them, 4-2, back on November 25th. On the season, he has a 16-14-2 record, 2.80 goals-against-average, and .915 save percentage but has not fared well in his career versus the Jets, recording a 1-3-1 record, 3.89 GAA, and .881 save percentage.

      Advice: Letang suffered a possible concussion as a result of a high hit by Philadelphia's Zac Rinaldo during Tuesday's game. He was on the ice Wednesday morning, but he still needs to get medical clearance before he can play. The Penguins might call up a defenseman today to dress in the event that Letang can't play.

    • Kris Letang (head) skates with Penguins
      Kris Letang was able to join the Penguins for Wednesday's optional skate.

      Advice: Letang absorbed a high hit from Philadelphia's Zac Rinaldo on Tuesday, raising fears that he might have been concussed. The fact that he's already skating is a good sign, but it would be premature to assume that he's fine. Rotoworld.com

    • Erik Karlsson scores in losing effort
      Erik Karlsson scored a goal for the Senators, but it wasn't enough to avoid a 3-2 overtime loss to the Rangers Tuesday.

      Advice: It seems unfair to call Karlsson's season a disappointment considering he has racked up 31 points in 45 games, but the reality is his scoring pace trails those of his past few years. That said, he continues to amass shots on goal at an astounding pace and stands to be one of the top two or three blueliners the rest of the way. Milan Michalek also found the back of the net for Ottawa in the loss. Rotoworld.com

    • Kris Letang injured on hit from Zac Rinaldo
      Penguins defenseman Kris Letang was forced out of Tuesday's game against the Flyers after he was the victim of an illegal hit by Philadelphia's Zac Rinaldo.

      Advice: Rinaldo was assessed a major penalty for boarding on the play as well as a game misconduct while Letang left the game and has not returned. The NHL will surely review the incident to determine whether supplementary discipline will be levied against Rinaldo. We'll pass along more information about Letang's condition as it becomes available. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Tavares is on a three-game multi-point streak. He has 21 goals and 45 points in 46 contests in 2014-15. It wouldn't be surprising to see him reach or surpass the 80-point mark. Rotoworld.com

    • Darcy Kuemper ready to return from LBI
      Darcy Kuemper has been cleared to return from his lower-body injury.

      Advice: He has missed six games because of the injury and could be sent to the minors on a conditioning stint. Minnesota will have to deal with handling three healthy goaltenders on the roster, with Devan Dubnyk and Niklas Backstrom also in the fold. "It's an ongoing, day-by-day thing we'll have to deal with," said coach Mike Yeo. "I think we were able to manage it fairly well [last season], and that's going to be important again this year."

      Rick Nash scored two goals in Sunday's 5-2 win over Pittsburgh.

      Advice: Nash opened the scoring just 26 seconds into the game, and he eventually scored the game-winning goal early in the second period. The Rangers' sniper has now taken over the league lead for goals scored with 28. Derek Stepan (twice) and Derick Brassard also scored for the Rangers. Nash has 28 goals and 43 points in 43 games. He's only had one point-per-game season in his NHL career (2008-09). Rotoworld.com

    • Tyler Seguin collects 50th point of season
      Tyler Seguin scored a goal and an assist in Saturday's 5-4 win over Washington.

      Advice: This was a bit of a wacky affair, as the Stars blew a 3-0 lead but they eventually won 5-3. Seguin had just one point in his last five games prior to this one, so it's nice to see him get back on the right track. The 22-year-old has been phenomenal for the most part. He has 27 goals and 50 points in 44 games this season. Seguin is three points behind Jakub Voracek for the NHL lead, and one goal ahead of Lightning forward Steven Stamkos. Rotoworld.com

    • Kuemper on ice Saturday morning
      Darcy Kuemper was on the ice working out during Saturday morning's skate.

      Advice: He is recovering from a lower-body injury and is making some progress. Kuemper has yet to particiapte in a full practice since sustaining the injury, though. There was some talk that he will be assigned to the AHL on a conditioning assignment during the All-Star break. If Devan Dubnyk continues to play well, Kuemper could be with Iowa for a while.

      Andrew Ebbett cleared waivers on Friday but remained with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

    • John Tavares has three point night Friday
      John Tavares had three assists in the Islanders win over Pittsburgh Friday.

      Advice: Tavares has 19 goals and 42 points which places him in 14th place in NHL scoring. He has had an up and down season as he got off to a good start with nine points in his first four games but slumped from mid-October until Thanksgiving, with only six goals and five assists in 17 games (which is a slump for someone of Tavares' talent). He is back on track. Rotoworld.com

    • Sergei Bobrovsky loses fourth straight game
      Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 24 of 26 shots in the Blue Jackets' 2-1 loss to the Rangers.

      Advice: Bobrovsky has now lost four straight games, but he's had some unlucky results in back-to-back games. Bobrovsky allowed three power play goals in his last start against Montreal, and he gave up only two goals tonight. The 26-year-old's record falls to 15-14-2, and he has a 2.86 goals-against-average and a .914 save percentage. He hasn't won a game since signing a contract extension on January 9th. Rotoworld.com

    • Kyle Okposo scores four goals vs. Pittsburgh
      Kyle Okposo scored four goals in the Islanders' 6-3 win over Pittsburgh on Friday night.

      Advice: Okposo had a third period for the ages. With the Islanders trailing 3-2 in the final frame, the 26-year-old rattled off a natural hat trick to help give New York the win. It took Okposo a while to develop the offensive part of his game, but he had 69 points last season, and he's on pace to surpass that total this year. He has 13 goals and 41 points in 44 games. Teammate John Tavares assisted on three of Okposo's four goals. Rotoworld.com

    • Tyler Seguin in the midst of a goal slump
      Tyler Seguin has been hit by a cold spell.

      Advice: He still co-leads the NHL with 26 goals, but his recent slump has allowed the competition to catch up. Seguin has not found the back of the net in his last six games and he's earned just two assists over that span. He has one goal in his past 11 outings. Rotoworld.com
