    • Tomas Tatar scores game-winner on Saturday
      Tomas Tatar scored the game-winning goal in Saturday's win over Nashville.

      Advice: The Wings finish off their five-game road trip with a 3-1-1 record. "It was a good trip for us," said Tatar. "We proved we can play with the best teams in the league. We were strong the whole trip. We're real happy with how it went for us." The 24-year-old has scored 20 points in his last 20 games and he has an overall stat line of 25 goals and 46 points in 61 games. No one on the Red Wings' roster has scored more goals than Tatar this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Jay McClement inks two-year deal with Canes
      The Carolina Hurricanes have given Jay McClement a two-year extension worth $2.4 million.

      Advice: McClement will get $1.3 million next season and $1.1 million in 2016-17. "Jay has played really well for us on the ice," GM Ron Francis said Sunday. "He’s been good on draws and a big part of our penalty killing. He's just the consummate pro and has been a real good guy for us in the locker room and good role model for our younger guys." McClement has six goals and 18 points this season after a two goal effort on Saturday. Rotoworld.com

    • Mike Fisher scores in loss to Detroit on Sat
      Mike Fisher scored a goal in Saturday's 4-3 loss to Detroit.

      Advice: Fisher scored one of three second period goals for the Predators, but it wasn't enough for them to win the game. The 34-year-old missed a good chunk of the season with an achilles injury but he has been fairly productive since his return. Fisher has 15 goals and 33 points in 42 games this season. He is currently riding a three-game point streak. Rotoworld.com

    • Chris Tanev practices Saturday
      Chris Tanev (head) practiced for the first time on Saturday but will not play on Sunday.

      Advice: Tanev did not feel well after practice so he still needs some time before returning to action. "I just didn’t feel good after I skated," Tanev explained. "It was just the usual things (symptoms) for head injuries but it’s something you don’t want to take too lightly so you proceed with caution. "I've felt pretty good since I've started working out and skating. I’ll take it day-by-day here and proceed like the symptoms let me and, hopefully, I keep going symptom free. Obviously I’d like to be back as soon as I can but I’m not going to rush back." Rotoworld.com

    • Jacob Markstrom and Lack teammates before
      Jacob Markstrom and Eddie Lack were teammates five years ago with Brynas of the Swedish Elite League.

      Advice: The duo are very good friends with the difference now being that Markstrom is backing up Lack and Lack was the backup to Markstrom five seasons ago. Markstrom has yet to play in the NHL this season and was recalled when Ryan Miller went down with a leg injury. Markstrom was 17-7-2 with a 1.95 GAA and a .932 save percentage with Utica before his recall. Rotoworld.com

    • Nicklas Grossman's injury may involve head
      The injury suffered by Nicklas Grossmann on Saturday could involve his head.

      Advice: More will be known on Sunday according to GM Ron Hextall. Grossmann took a shot that seemed to go off the back of his shoulder but it may have hit him in the ear as well. He appeared to be woozy as he left the ice making some wonder if he may have a concussion. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    • Oscar Lindberg drawing interest from teams
      Oscar Lindberg has been drawing interest from teams looking to deal with the Rangers.

      Advice: Igor Shesterkin is also a goaltender that is piquing the interest of many teams. The Rangers selected Lindberg in the second round of the 2010 Draft and he made his NHL debut this past week before being returned to the minors. Just an FYI in case you were wondering who the Rangers had to trade in a give up deal. Rotoworld.com

    • Martin Havlat could be out the door in NJ
      Do not be surprised if Martin Havlat is dealt by Monday.

      Advice: Havlat has been a healthy scratch in six of the previous seven games and was a minus-three with no points in the game he did play so the Devils really have no interest in keeping him. He could use a change of scenery as he has only five goals and 14 points this season with a minus-12 rating. He had no comment after Saturday's game with regards to being dealt so he is not a happy camper. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 4:45 am
    • Scott Gomez could be in play at deadline
      Scott Gomez could find himself on a new team when the NHL trade deadline comes to an end on Monday.

      Advice: Gomez is having a nice offensive season, his first in four seasons as he has five goals and 23 points in 38 games. There are plenty of playoff bound teams looking for a boost in offense and Gomez could be targeted by some clubs. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 4:42 am
    • Robyn Regehr practices on Saturday
      Robyn Regehr practiced on Saturday after it looked like he was hurt during Friday's game.

      Advice: That's good news for the Kings as they can ill afford an injury to a defenseman. He was hit in the wrist area by a shot. Regehr has a new partner on the blueline as he is playing with the recently acquired Andrej Sekera. Regehr has no fantasy value. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 4:20 am
    • Kevin Connauton likely out a week
      Kevin Connauton missed Saturday's game with a lower body injury and will not play on Sunday according to coach Todd Richards.

      Advice: Richards thought that the defenseman would be out until next weekend. Connauton has eight goals and 17 points in 47 games this season. That's not a bad goal total at all for a defenseman. Rotoworld.com

    • Blue Jackets activate Sergei Bobrovsky off IR
      The Columbus Blue Jackets have activated netminder Sergei Bobrovsky off the injured reserve list.

      Advice: Bobrovsky backed up Curtis McElhinney on Saturday and could very well be the starter on Sunday when the Blue Jackets take on the Penguins. Bobrovsky was out for over five weeks with a groin injury. He was 16-15-2 with a 2.85 GAA and a .913 save percentage before his injury. Rotoworld.com

    • Maxime Talbot's scoreless drought ends
      Maxime Talbot notched the only goal for the Avalanche in their 3-1 loss to the Wild on Saturday night.

      Advice: Talbot had not scored since Jan. 30 and this was just his third point during that stretch, so suffice to say he’s not close to being fantasy relevant. The 31-year-old has five goals and 15 points this season. Nick Holden picked up the helper. Cody McLeod had 17 penalty minutes, while Gabriel Landeskog tallied 10. Rotoworld.com

    • Ben Scrivens makes 25 saves in 2-1 loss
      Ben Scrivens set aside 25 shots in the Oilers’ 2-1 loss to the Blues on Saturday night.

      Advice: Scrivens has actually been pretty good over his past five games, though he has just two wins to show for three plus-.926 save percentage efforts. He has a 2.92 goals-against and .898 save percentage this season. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:52 pm
    • Mike Hoffman gets two goals, assist in win
      Mike Hoffman netted two goals (one on the power play) and added an assist to lead the Senators to a 4-2 win over the Sharks on Saturday night.

      Advice: With the way Filip Forsberg has played, Hoffman, who had one goal on the empty net, is unlikely to win the rookie of the year, but his stock in that race is gaining steam. He now has 23 goals and 39 points this season, with at least a point in eight of his past nine games. Fellow rookie Mark Stone also scored, and had an assist. Erik Karlsson got the other goal, on the power play. Kyle Turris picked up two helpers. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:45 pm
    • Grossmann (back) leaves after blocking shot
      Nicklas Grossmann left Saturday’s game against the Rangers after taking a shot off the back.

      Advice: Rick Nash wristed a shot as Grossman was lying on the ice in attempt to block it. The puck ended up hitting him on the nameplate of his jersey. He needed to be helped off the ice. Grossmann played 5:40. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 6:29 pm
    • Ben Scrivens to start vs. Blues on Saturday
      Ben Scrivens will get the start against the St. Louis Blues on Saturday night.

      Advice: Scrivens comes in with a 12-19-7 record with a .897 save percentage and a 2.94 GAA through 43 appearances this season. He also has just 15 Quality Starts against seven Really Bad Starts, tied for fourth most in the league, through 38 starts as well. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 2:57 pm
    • Martin Havlat scratched on Saturday
      It looks like Martin Havlat will be a healthy scratch for the New Jersey Devils on Saturday.

      Advice: Havlat's certainly familiar with being an unhealthy one. He's been a minor contributor this season (five goals, 14 points, -12 rating in 38 points) and has the name recognition to be at least moderately interesting during the trade deadline. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 11:45 am
    • Jacob Markstrom should get start soon
      Jacob Markstrom should get a start shortly for the Vancouver Canucks.

      Advice: With Ryan Miller out of action for another three-five weeks, the Canucks have to get Markstrom some playing time. Eddie Lack gave up five goals on only 23 shots to lowly Buffalo on Thursday but coach Willie Desjardins may want to go back to Lack on Sunday to give him a boost of confidence. Markstrom was outstanding in the minors with a 1.95 GAA and a .932 save percentage 17-7-2 record with Utica. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 7:04 am
    • Martin Havlat a minus-three on Friday
      Martin Havlat was a minus-three in his return to the New Jersey lineup on Friday.

      Advice: Havlat had missed the previous five games as a healthy scratch. With only five goals and 14 points in 38 games, Havlat could be nearing the end of his NHL career. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 4:57 am
    • Sergei Bobrovsky to skate on his own Saturday
      Sergei Bobrovsky (groin) is expected to skate on his own Saturday morning.

      Advice: The Blue Jackets will not practice on Saturday morning so this skate could determine whether or not Bobrovsky is ready to return to action as he has been out of the lineup since January 21. If not, Oscar Dansk could get his first NHL start in his career. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 4:11 am
    • Martin Havlat to play vs. Bruins on Friday
      Martin Havlat will play and skate on the third line against the Boston Bruins on Friday night.

      Advice: It's Havlat's first game since Feb. 14th, and he has just five goals and 14 points through 37 games this disappointing season. Dainius Zubrus and Jacob Josefson will line up to the left of Havlat to form their third line. Rotoworld.com

      Friday, 8:50 am
    • Scott Gomez (flu) might miss Friday's game
      Scott Gomez is "very questionable" for Friday's game due to the flu.

      Advice: Gomez has five goals and 23 points in 37 games in 2014-15. His absence would compound the loss of Jaromir Jagr, who was dealt to the Florida Panthers on Thursday. Michael Ryder and Martin Havlat might both come out of the press box. Rotoworld.com

    • Hoffman nets only goal in 1-0 win over Kings
      Mike Hoffman scored the game's only goal off a sweet Mike Zibanejad feed early on in the third period, defeating the Kings 1-0 on Thursday night.

      Advice: After Zibanejad took a pass from Bobby Ryan, Zibs played a bit of dump-and-chase with himself to get into the Kings' zone and around Robyn Regehr. After retrieving the puck, he found a streaking Hoffman who chipped the perfect feed over a sprawling Jonathan Quick. Hoffman continues to lead the Senators in goals, now with 21 to go along with 36 points. Rotoworld.com

    • Mike Fisher's two points not enough for NSH

      Sergei Bobrovsky (groin) took part in Wednesday's optional skate.

      Advice: Bobrovsky might be available to play on Saturday or Sunday, but nothing has been decided. "It's just day-to-day, till we get Bob to where he's healthy and he says he's 100 percent and ready to go," Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards said. "He's progressing. Still a little sore, but more aggressive out on the ice each day." Bobrovsky hasn't played since Jan. 21. Rotoworld.com

    • Oscar Lindberg sent down after making debut
      Oscar Lindberg was returned to the minors following the Rangers' 1-0 victory on Tuesday.

      Advice: Lindberg made his NHL debut before that happened, recording two shots on goal in 8:18 minutes of ice time. The Rangers sent him down as quickly as they did due to salary cap considerations. "He played between seven and eight minutes, for a first game, last minute thing," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said. "I probably would've went with seven D since we're real close to the (salary) cap. We had a couple of guys under the weather, so I wasn't sure if they were going to play so when we called him up I was definitely going to take a look at him. For the most part for a first game he did all right." Rotoworld.com

    • Ben Scrivens outduels Dubnyk as Oilers win
      Ben Scrivens turned aside 33 of 34 shots on Tuesday as he lifted the Oilers to a 2-1 win over Minnesota.

      Advice: Scrivens outdueled the red-hot Devan Dubynk for the win so he receives full marks for this result. He owns a 12-19-7 record, a 2.94 GAA and an .897 save percentage, but he should see plenty of action between the pipes down the stretch. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 9:04 pm
    • Nicklas Grossman scores only goal in loss
      Nicklas Grossman scored the only Philadelphia goal in a 4-1 loss to the Hurricanes Tuesday.

      Advice: The defensive-minded blueliner is not worth rostering in fantasy leagues since he has amassed only nine points in 51 contests thus far. Jakub Voracek and Matt Read picked up helpers on the tally. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 7:27 pm
    • Oscar Lindberg makes NHL debut vs. Flames
      Oscar Lindberg will make his NHL debut on Tuesday night against the Calgary Flames.

      Advice: With Rick Nash day-to-day with neck spasms, and several sick Rangers on the roster, the 23 year old Lindberg will be thrust into action centering the third line between Carl Hagelin and JT Miller. In two seasons with AHL Hartford, Lindberg has 34 goals and 80 points. Rotoworld.com

    • Ben Scrivens to start vs. the Wild on Tuesday
      Ben Scrivens will get the start against the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night.

      Advice: Through 41 games this season, Scrivens owns a 11-19-7 record with a .895 save percentage and a 2.99 GAA. He's also tied with seven others with seven Really Bad starts, or third most in the league. RBS is any start with a sub-.885 save percentage, or stopping just 17 of every 20 shots. Scrivens is also winless in three career starts versus the Wild with 11 goals against. So you may want to find a more favorable matchup. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 2:53 pm
    • Rangers summon Oscar Lindberg
      Oscar Lindberg has been called up by the New York Rangers.

      Advice: Without naming names, Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said that there are "flu-like" issues with his team. Lindberg was likely called up in case one of those unspecified players ends up missing Tuesday's contest. He has 16 goals and 36 points in 54 AHL games this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Martin Havlat will likely stay in press box
      Martin Havlat will probably be a healthy scratch again on Wednesday.

      Advice: It would be Havlat's fifth straight game in the press box. He has five goals and 14 points in 37 games in 2014-15. There's a chance he'll be traded before the deadline, but the Devils wouldn't get much for him given how much his stock has fallen. Rotoworld.com

    • Scott Gomez nets goal against Arizona
      Scott Gomez scored a goal in the Devils' 3-0 victory against Arizona on Monday.

      Advice: Gomez has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last six games. He has reinvigorated his career in New Jersey with five goals and 23 points in 38 contests in 2014-15. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 7:23 am
    • Martin Havlat scratched again Monday night
      Martin Havlat will be a healthy scratch once again Monday night against Arizona.

      Advice: Havlat has had a rough time in his first season with New Jersey and hasn’t appeared in a game since February 14th. He’s only scored five goals to go with nine assists in 37 games played. It’s safe to say he is no longer the fantasy player he was years ago with the Blackhawks and Wild. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 3:55 pm
    • Markstrom probably won't need to be waived
      Jacob Markstrom probably won't need to clear waivers to be return to the minors once Ryan Miller (leg) is healthy.

      Advice: Which is important for the Canucks because it's unlikely Markstrom would clear waivers given his superb play in the minors this season. Markstrom's up on an emergency basis and can consequently be returned without the need for waivers as long as he plays in less than 10 games. That's worth keeping in mind because it makes it more likely that Vancouver will lean on Eddie Lack if Miller's injury proves to be long term. Of course, it doesn't guarantee anything as the Canucks might simply resort to carrying three goaltenders for what little is left of the season and then playoffs if it comes to that. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 1:22 pm
    • Canucks call up goaltender Jacob Markstrom
      Jacob Markstrom has been called up by the Vancouver Canucks.

      Advice: Ryan Miller sustained a leg injury on Sunday. Markstrom has a 1.95 GAA and .932 save percentage in 26 AHL games in 2014-15, so he's worth keeping a close eye on. He'll be competing for playing time with Eddie Lack during Miller's absence. Rotoworld.com

    • Chris Tanev (upper body) on Injured Reserve
      The Vancouver Canucks site shows that Chris Tanev is on the injured reserve list with an upper body injury.

    • Ben Scrivens gives up two on 21 shots in loss
      Ben Scrivens gave up two goals on 21 shots in the Oilers’ 2-1 loss to the Ducks on Saturday night.

      Advice: Despite the result, the Oilers did not play a bad game against one of the league’s top-tier teams. Scrivens allowed a goal in the first on a Ducks power play and one in the third. He has a 2.99 goals-against average and .895 save percentage. Suffice to say, stay far away from him in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Feb 21, 6:55 pm
    • Scrivens starts again on Saturday vs. Ducks
      Ben Scrivens will make his second start in as many nights on Saturday versus the Anaheim Ducks.

      Advice: Scrivens comes in with an 11-18-7 record with 113 goals against over 36 starts and 40 games this season. He's seen 58 career shots from the Ducks over one start and one brief relief effort, and he's stopped 55 of them with a win in his start. He also has three career starts with no rest, going 1-1-1 with 10 goals against on 83 shots. Rotoworld.com
      Feb 21, 2:23 pm
    • Scott Gomez gets assist on Friday
      Scott Gomez picked up an assist on Friday.

      Advice: It was the center's 471st point as a New Jersey Devil and he is now one point away from tying Bobby Holik for fifth place all-time in franchise history. Gomez has four goals and 21 points in 34 games this season. His name has been mentioned in trade talk so he may not have a chance to move into fifth spot this season. Rotoworld.com
      Feb 21, 5:31 am
    • Scrivens has seventh Real Bad Start of season
      Ben Scrivens allowed four goals on 29 shots in Edmonton's 4-0 loss to Minnesota on Friday night.

      Advice: The game was Scrivens' seventh "Real Bad Start" of the season. According to Rob Vollman, a RBS stops just 85% of shots faced, or 17 of every 20 shots. Scrivens is tied with five others for fourth most, trailing leader Mike Smith by three. Sure, every goalie has a few stinkers along the way. Pekka Rinne has three, for example. But this is has been the 28 year old netminder's worst season yet, in a career full of major ups and downs. His season's record now stands at 11-18-7 with 113 goals against over 36 starts and 40 games. Rotoworld.com
      Feb 20, 9:44 pm
    • Ben Scrivens to start vs. the Wild on Friday
      Ben Scrivens will get the start versus the Minnesota Wild on Friday night.

      Advice: Through 35 starts and 39 games Scrivens owns a 11-17-7 record with 109 goals against this season. Perhaps what's most concerning is that he has just 14 Quality Starts and seven Really Bad Starts thus far. Worse yet, he's lost both career starts versus Minnesota with seven goals against.

      Feb 20, 5:01 pm
    • Havlat, Ryder, Fraser scratched vs. Canucks
      Martin Havlat, Michael Ryder, and Mark Fraser will each be scratched against the Vancouver Canucks on Friday night.

      Advice: Havlat has played in just 15 of New Jersey's 23 games since Christmas. Ryder, just nine. Fraser has 14 games to his credit, each since the calendar turned to 2015. Suffice it to say, neither forward seem to fit within the Devils' plans while Fraser rotates in on the blue line. Rotoworld.com
      Feb 20, 3:29 pm
    • Sergei Bobrovsky (groin) may return next week
      Sergei Bobrovsky (groin) will take part in Saturday's morning skate.

    • Tomas Tatar is enjoying a breakout season
      Tomas Tatar leads the Red Wings in goal scoring with 24 markers in 56 games.

      Advice: He also ranks third on the club with 42 points in what has been a breakout year for the 24-year-old. "Tats has the skill set and has the drive to be real good," coach Mike Babcock said. "And he's ultra-competitive. That adds up to getting better each and every day and you're here (in the NHL) and you're serious about your craft." Tatar has produced three goals and five assists in his past seven contests, so dress him with confidence. Rotoworld.com

    • Sergei Bobrovsky skates, takes some shots
      Sergei Bobrovsky (groin) was on the ice with the Blue Jackets on Wednesday.

      Advice: It was the first time Bobrovsky skated with his teammates since he sustained the injury just before the All-Star break. Bobrovsky also took a few shots while he was on the ice, although it was far from a significant test of his reflexes. "They were kind of generic shots, but we got him out with the guys and he took part in a couple of shooting drills early," Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards said. "And then he stayed out and worked with (goaltending coach Ian Clark) after practice. I don't know if I'd say he's ahead of schedule, but he's moving along well." Rotoworld.com
      Feb 19, 7:03 am
    • Ben Scrivens oustanding in rare Oilers win
      Ben Scrivens stopped 38-of-43 shots to earn a 4-3 shootout win over Boston on Wednesday.

      Advice: Scrivens out-dueled Tuukka Rask in this one as it went deep in the shootout with neither goalie allowing a goal until the 12th round of the "skills competition." Scrivens was very good during regulation and overtime as well, showing no ill effect from a hamstring injury that has kept in out of the lineup and on the disabled list. With Viktor Fasth out indefinitely, the Oilers will rely on the veteran for quite a few starts. Start at your own risk though. Rotoworld.com
