    Ryan Murray has inked a two-year, $5.65 million contract with the Columbus Blue Jackets.

    Advice: Murray's new contract, which will begin in 2016-17, is his first post-ELC deal. Taken with the second overall pick in 2012, Murray has been slowed down somewhat due to injuries, but he's played in 55 games this season and still has a lot of untapped upside. In that context, this bridge deal makes a lot of sense for both sides as they're still waiting to see just how good Murray can be. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:44 pm

    Dan Hamhuis registered an assist in a 2-1 victory over Arizona Wednesday night.

    Advice: Hamhuis has no goals and five assists in 30 contests in 2015-16. You'd have to go back to April 9, 2014 to find the last time he scored a goal. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:32 am

  • Detroit might be interested in Fedor Tyutin
    Red Wings GM Ken Holland and pro scout Kirk Maltby were among the Red Wings staff members that were in attendance for Tuesday's game between Columbus and the New York Islanders.

    Advice: There's going to be a lot of examples of high profile members of organizations taking in games throughout the league as we get closer to the trade deadline. Still, we decided to single this one out due to Detroit's reported interest in Fedor Tyutin. The defenseman has just two assists in 43 games, but he usually chips in a decent amount offensively. It will be interesting to see if a trade helps spark him in that regard, when or if it happens. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:51 am
  • Johnny Gaudreau should draw back into lineup
    Look for Johnny Gaudreau to be reinserted into the lineup on Thursday.

  • Martin Hanzal scores against Vancouver
    Martin Hanzal scored the lone goal in a 2-1 loss to Vancouver on Wednesday.

    Advice: The goal was his seventh of the season and 25th point on the year in 40 contests. Rookies Max Domi and Anthony Duclair picked up assists on the goal. Hanzal has never scored more than 40 points in a single season and he seems unlikely to pass that mark again in this campaign. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:21 pm
  • Ryan Miller continues dominance over Coyotes
    Ryan Miller made 33 saves in a dominating 2-1 win over Arizona on Wednesday.

    Advice: Miller got some help from his defenders with a few key blocks but he himself was nearly flawless in yet another win over Arizona for the veteran goalie. He is now 9-1 lifetime against Coyotes and 6-0 at Arizona. Miller improved his record to 12-15-8 to go with a 2.59 GAA and .916 save percentage in 36 starts. He's the number one in Vancouver but backup Jacob Markstrom is keeping him honest. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:06 pm
  • Joakim Andersson Odd Man Out Versus Senators
    Joakim Andersson will be scratched Wednesday night against the visiting Ottawa Senators.

    Advice: The third round pick in 2007 (88th overall) has one goal in 28 games and this is the third straight scratch. He's survived placement on the waiver wire, subsequent demotion and recall where he didn't dress from the Grand Rapid Griffins so far this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:01 pm
  • Mike Richards' status unclear for Thursday
    Mike Richards took a maintenance day on Wednesday, but his status for Thursday's game is unclear at this time.

    Advice: "We'll see where he is tomorrow," coach Barry Trotz said. "I can't really answer that right now." Brooks Laich centered the fourth line at practice between Stanislav Galiev and Michael Latta in Richards' place. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:26 pm
  • Ryan Miller will get the nod vs. Arizona
    Ryan Miller will get the nod in Wednesday's game against Arizona.

    Advice: Jacob Markstrom was superb in a 3-1 win over Colorado on Tuesday, but the Canucks will rotate their netminders in the second game of the back-to-back situation. Miller has gone winless in his last five outings (0-3-2), but he has performed well in his last two appearances. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:55 pm
  • Flames apologize for showing up late
    Johnny Gaudreau apologized on Wednesday after he was scratched Tuesday night for violating a team rule.

    Advice: "I think all three of us are really upset with ourselves," said Gaudreau. "We want to apologize to the organization, the coaches, our team especially and the city of Calgary and the fans. They come to watch us play every night and for us not to show up like that and miss a game like that, it's not professional on our part." Gaudreau, Sean Monahan and Lance Bouma were apologetic after they were disciplined for showing up late. They are eager to get back into the lineup and play well against the Sharks on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:12 pm
  • Coyotes waive Dylan Reese
    Dylan Reese has been put on waivers by Arizona.

    Advice: He spent most of the 2014-15 season in the AHL with Portland and he posted 40 points in 72 games. Reese hasn't played in any games this year after re-upping with the Coyotes in the summer because of an off-season Achilles injury. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:22 am

    Mike Weber netted his first goal of the 2015-16 season on Tuesday night.

  • Johnny Gaudreau had been late Monday morning
    Johnny Gaudreau being a healthy scratch on Tuesday was punishment for showing up late to the Saddledome by 10 minutes on Monday.

    Advice: Gaudreau has 21 goals and 49 points in 51 contests this season, so by scratching him the Flames were essentially saying that no one is above the rules. We don't expect this incident to have long-lasting repercussions. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:42 am
  • Ben Scrivens allows two goals in win over TBL
    Ben Scrivens turned aside 37 of 39 shots in 4-2 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.

    Advice: Don't look now, but the Montreal Canadiens seem to be heating up. After going 0-4, Scrivens has strung together a neat little three game win streak. He was particularly busy against Tampa Bay and did extremely well against a potent offense. Scrivens brings his record on the season to 3-4-0 to go along with a 2.72 goals-against-average and a .912 save percentage. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:09 pm
  • Tuukka Rask pulled in L to Los Angeles Kings
    Tuukka Rask was pulled in Tuesday night's contest after allowing five goals on 32 shots in a lopsided 9-2 loss to the Los Angeles Kings.

    Advice: He was replaced by Jonas Gustavsson, who didn't fare much better in the second frame and ultimately took the loss in what was an ugly game for the Boston Bruins. Rask's record is 19-16-5 with a 2.56 GAA and a .916 save percentage. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:30 pm
  • Johnny Gaudreau scratched vs Leafs on Tuesday
    Johnny Gaudreau will indeed be scratched from Tuesday's match with Toronto.

    Advice: Wow. Didn't see that coming. Gaudreau has posted 21 goals and 49 points in 51 games for the Flames this season, so management is surely making an example out of him and Sean Monahan. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:23 pm
  • Chris Porter scratched vs Stars on Tuesday
    Chris Porter will be scratched against the Stars on Tuesday night.

    Advice: Porter isn't much of a scorer, with just 32 points in 221 career NHL games. But he does have 531 hits in that span, including 117 in 48 games this season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:48 pm
  • Flames may sit Gaudreau and Monahan
    Johnny Gaudreau, Sean Monahan and Lance Bouma might be scratched Tuesday night for disciplinary reasons, according to reports.

    Advice: That would knock out two-thirds of the top line if Gaudreau and Monahan were held out of the lineup. The Flames may play against Toronto with 11 forwards and seven defensemen. Stay tuned for more on this as the story develops. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:48 pm

    Injured Reserve

  • Ben Scrivens will start against Lightning
    The Canadiens will stick with Ben Scrivens in goal when they play against Tampa Bay on Tuesday night.

    Advice: He had four straight losses to begin his tour of duty with Montreal, but he has won his last two while playing well against Edmonton and Carolina. The Lightning will be a much tougher task, especially after losing 5-1 to Ottawa on Monday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:44 am
  • Milan Lucic returns to Boston for first time
    Milan Lucic will return to Boston for the first time since being traded in the off-season.

    Advice: "It’s pretty cool," Lucic said. "Back in the snow, hockey weather, but it’s a cool feeling to be able to go back and finally play against a team that I played for for the last eight years, and I’m looking forward to what it’s going to be like." Lucic is having a nice fantasy season with 12 goals and 30 points in 50 games to go with a plus-10 rating and 66 penalty minutes. He seems like a great play tonight in DFS. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:25 am
  • David Savard questionable for return Tuesday
    David Savard (oblique strain) is questionable to return Tuesday.

    Advice: Savard partook in a full practice on Monday so his return is imminent but it may not come against the Islanders as the Blue Jackets kick off a stretch that sees them play 15 of their next 20 games at home. Savard has already missed 15 games this season after playing the full 82 game slate last season. "You see guys going down all the time, but I’ve never really been part of that before," Savard said. "It’s tough. You rehab, work out and try to get back as quick as possible, but it’s hard. Sometimes your body doesn’t work like you want it to." Savard has a goal and 16 points in 39 games this season. His fantasy value is limited at this time. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:52 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Jason Garrison (LBI) is done for the night
    Jason Garrison suffered a lower-body injury in Monday's game against the Ottawa Senators.

    Advice: The Bolts just announced that Garrison's night is over. They'll probably provide an update on his status after the game. He should be considered day-to-day right now. We'll provide an update on his status as soon as the Lightning shed some light on his injury situation. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:39 pm
    Injured Reserve

    Advice: Scrivens turned away 34 of 35 shots faced, including all seven on special teams. For the weekend he stopped 57 of 59 shots in the wins over Carolina and Edmonton. Mighty impressive for the veteran netminder trying to reestablish himself in the NHL. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:04 pm
  • Ben Scrivens will face Carolina on Sunday
    Ben Scrivens will face Carolina on Sunday afternoon.

    Advice: Scrivens is being rewarded for shutting down the Oilers on Sunday as he turned away 23 of 24 shots in the 5-1 victory. In six career starts without rest, Scrivens is 1-3-2 with 21 goals against and a paltry .865 save percentage. Considering yesterday was his first good start with Montreal, we'd hedge our bets if you have other options. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:10 am

  • Ryan Miller stops 26 shots in Canucks' loss
    Ryan Miller gave up two goals on 28 shots in the Canucks’ 4-1 loss to the Flames on Saturday night.

    Advice: Calgary scored twice while Miller was pulled. The Canucks netminder has not won since Jan. 17, a span of five games. That’s what happens on a team that ranks near the bottom in goals per game and is now in the midst of a tryout period with its younger players. Miller has a 2.65 GAA and .914 SV%. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:50 pm
  • Tuukka Rask stops 37 shots in OT win vs. BUFF
    Tuukka Rask made 37 saves in the Bruins’ 2-1 overtime win against the Sabres on Saturday night.

    Advice: Rask allowed a second-period goal and that was it. After a slow start, his numbers trended up, but they fell back down in January (.914 SV%).

Hamhuis has missed the last 21 games after taking a puck to the face. In 27 games this season the veteran defender has accumulated four points, 34 hits, and 43 blocks and he will pair with Luca Sbisa as the team's second defensive unit. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:59 pm
  • Ryan Miller will face Calgary on Saturday

  • Weber, Foligno, Colaiacovo out vs Boston
    Mike Weber, Marcus Foligno, and Carlo Colaiacovo will each be scratched from Saturday's tilt with Boston.

    Advice: There's a bit of hidden value in both Weber and Foligno if you're looking for tough guy stats. Weber has posted 32 PIMs and blocks with 64 hits in 32 games thus far. While Foligno has recorded 31 PIMs and a whopping 101 hits in 46 games this season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:00 pm
  • Tuukka Rask will face Buffalo on Saturday
    Tuukka Rask will face Buffalo on Saturday night.

    Advice: Rask beat Buffalo in his previous start against them while making 26 of 28 stops. One believes this ought to be a sure fire win for Rask and the Bruins tonight, but Rask is also riding the worst even strength save percentage (.921) of his career. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:33 pm
  • Mike Weber returns Saturday vs Boston
    Mike Weber will return to Buffalo's blue line against Boston on Saturday night.

    Advice: Weber will pair with Cody Franson to form the team's third defensive unit. Through 32 games this season, Weber has posted four points, 32 PIMs, 32 blocks, and 64 hits. Decent rates for a reverse pool. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:27 pm
  • Scrivens gets first win with Habs on Saturday

    Advice: Scrivens played his best game as a Hab against his former team. He improved his record to 1-4-0 but is still averaging 3.26 goals against per game. We would stay clear of the veteran netminder. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:54 pm

  • Dallas promotes Radek Faksa
    Radek Faksa has been called up by the Dallas Stars.

    Advice: This move corresponds with Dallas placing Jason Spezza on the injured reserve list for an upper-body issue. Faksa has a goal and three points in 18 games with Dallas in 2015-16. The 22-year-old does have some offensive upside though, as demonstrated by his 26 points in 28 AHL contests. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:02 pm
  • Dan Hamhuis is likely to be back on Saturday
    Dan Hamhuis (facial fractures) should be back on Saturday.

    Advice: It would be Hamhuis' first game since Dec. 9. The fact that Vancouver likes his chances of returning on Saturday is probably what motivated the Canucks to place Yannick Weber on waivers Friday afternoon. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:37 pm
  • Ben Scrivens likely start vs. Oilers Saturday
    Ben Scrivens is expected to get the nod against Edmonton on Saturday.

    Advice: It will be an opportunity for Scrivens to play against the team that traded him in late December. He has a 3.85 GAA and .873 save percentage in four starts this season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:39 am

    Martin Hanzal registered an assist in a 5-4 overtime loss to Chicago Thursday night.

    Advice: Hanzal has six goals and 24 points in 38 contests this season. That's not a bad showing compared to his past campaigns, but it is a bit of a disappointment when weighed against his start of 19 points in 20 games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:35 am
  • Jori Lehtera hopes to finish season strong
    Jori Lehtera has accounted for three goals and eight points in the past 19 games.

    Advice: "I don't know," Lehtera said. "It's been a little bit harder than last year, but we've still got a lot of games left, I think. It's changing. ... I have to play more simple hockey and put the puck to the net, go there. That's where you start to score goals."

  • Malcolm Subban returns to the minors
    Malcolm Subban has been sent to AHL Providence.

    Mike Weber and Carlo Colaiacovo will be scratched Wednesday night when the Sabres visit the Montreal Candadiens.

    Advice: Weber had dressed for 10 straight before the post-All Star break schedule scratch. Colaiacovo hasn't played in 10 straight, making this his 11th straight scratch. Neither rearguard has much fantasy value, but if you must, adjust your rosters accordingly. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:59 pm

  • Johnny Gaudreau enjoys new ASG format
    Johnny Gaudreau liked the new All-Star Game format.

    Advice: Gaudreau also played in the 2015 NHL All-Star Game. "The tournament format made it a little more interesting and made it more competitive," said Gaudreau. "The guys were competing pretty hard in the last game because they wanted to win pretty badly. I was pretty tired there. It was a lot better than last year." Gaudreau was a candidate to win the All-Star MVP Award, which ultimately went to John Scott. Gaudreau said afterwards that he would have been tempted to give Scott the Honda Pilot Touring SUV, which served as the reward for the MVP, had Gaudreau been named the winner over him.

Okay, that's a bit more central to the average than one may like but he's 9-8-3 with just 41 goals against over the last 20 starts and two months. Rask gets the Leafs tonight, so this is a fine opportunity for a quality start to February. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:39 pm

  • Dan Hamhuis close to returning to action
    Dan Hamhuis (facial fractures) is close to returning to action.

    Advice: Hamhuis suffered the injury on December 9 when he took a puck to the face. Hamhuis is slated to be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season and the Canucks could unload him at the trade deadline if they are out of the playoff race. Hamhuis does have a no-movement clause and that could hinder any attempt to deal him. He has four assists in 27 games so his fantasy value is negligible. Rotoworld.com Feb 1, 5:52 am
