    • Taylor Beck in the lineup Monday
      Taylor Beck will dress for the Predators Monday night against the Rangers.

      Advice: Beck hasn’t dressed in game since February 22nd in Buffalo but will get his chance Monday night at Madison Square Garden. He has five goals and 10 points with a minus three rating in 44 games this year and is not relevant fantasy forward. He is just 23-years-old so maybe he can aid a fantasy team in the upcoming years.

    • Jesper Fast (knee) to return to lineup Monday
      Jesper Fast (knee) will return to the Rangers lineup Monday night against the Predators.

      Advice: Fast has been out since February 7th due to a knee injury but will be back in the lineup Monday night when the Rangers host Nashville. Fast has limited fantasy value but is an underrated real-life hockey player and will add a lot of value to the Rangers bottom six forwards. He has three goals and six assists in 37 games this year. Newly acquired James Sheppard will not be able to dress Monday so the lineup remains unchanged except for Fast being inserted. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Cole, an unrestricted free agent, has a partial no-trade clause, with most of his approved teams in the Eastern Conference.

      Advice: Parenteau has not played since mid-January due to a concussion, but wasn't having a great season through his first 40 games. With just six goals, 15 points, 20 PIMs, and 25 hits, it's difficult to recommend Parenteau for your squad down the stretch. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: There was a similar report roughly two weeks ago, but obviously we're mere days away from the trade deadline at this point. That doesn't necessarily rule out the possibility of him being dealt, but he does have a full no-trade clause, so the Devils would need to get his blessing before anything could happen.

The 24-year-old has a 17-5-2 record with a 2.39 goals-against-average and a .909 save percentage. As good as his record is, his fantasy upside is limited because of the presence of Brian Elliot.
