    • Flyers waive Rob Zepp on Saturday
      The Philadelphia Flyers placed Rob Zepp on waivers on Saturday.

      Advice: Zepp did fine (especially record-wise), but he's replaceable, and the team wants to make as much room as it can for possible trades. He's at least shown that he can come in for spot duty here and there, which might just open the door for future opportunities. Rotoworld.com

    • Penguins looking for partner for Ehrhoff
      The Pittsburgh Penguins are still looking for a defense partner for Christian Ehrhoff.

      Advice: The Pens have two units they can rely on in Kris Letang and Paul Martin, and Rob Scuderi and Simon Despres, but have yet to find the right partner for Ehrhoff.

    • John Moore mentioned in trade talks
      John Moore's name is being bandied about in trade rumors.

      Advice: The trade deadline is Monday at 3 PM ET and Moore could be headed elsewhere as the Rangers are looking for help with their third defense pairing and also need some depth up front. Moore is a talented player who has struggled this season and his small salary hit ($850,000) could attract many suitors. "I’m just controlling what I can control, and that’s whether I’m in or I’m out, just working hard," Moore said after playing an assertive game Thursday, including getting into a fight. "If that’s getting bag skated after the morning skate, that’s being the best bag skater I can be. If I’m in, it’s giving them a reason to keep me in." He has only five assists in 37 games but is capable of so much more. Rotoworld.com

    • Keith Kinkaid close to returning
      Keith Kinkaid is close to returning to action following a groin injury a week ago.

      Advice: Kinkaid was worried the injury was a lot more serious than it turned out to be. "I was really worried," Kinkaid said. "It's felt better every day. The MRI was good. It just takes time. It hasn't even been a week yet and I feel pretty good. The push was fine and the split was fine. Then I guess my weight eventually fell down and I felt a little tweak," Kinkaid said when explaining what happened. "I didn't feel comfortable to finish and put the team at risk. I don't know if I could have played at my full potential there and we needed those two points. If I wasn't feeling up to it, I didn't want to hurt them." Kinkaid is 3-4-3 with a 2.59 GAA and a .915 save percentage in limited time as Cory Schneider's backup. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Vatanen was injured on February 15 and it was thought he would be out four-six weeks so he should return by the beginning of April at the latest which would still give him 10 days in the regular season to get ready for the playoffs. "I will be ready before the playoffs," Vatanen said. "I can play some games and be ready for the most exciting time of the season."

    • Martin Jones makes 28 saves in loss to Ducks
      Martin Jones made 28 saves in the Kings' 4-2 loss to Ducks on Friday night.

      Advice: The loss has an extra layer of sting as the Kings led 2-0 going into the third period before three unanswered goals on just eight shots, plus an empty-netter. Fortunately, they didn't submit any ground to Calgary who lost in regulation on Long Island. The loss drops Jones' record to 4-4-2 with 25 goals against in a dozen games this season. Rotoworld.com

      Now that Christian Thomas has been returned to AHL Hamilton, look for PA Parenteau to make his return to Montreal's lineup on Saturday night versus Toronto.

      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: Ehrhoff has been skating with the team since February 14th and has missed 12 straight games but is finally back in the Pens lineup Wednesday night. Sure enough he will return against the team that knocked him out for the last dozen games when he was hit by Alex Ovechkin and struck his head on the ice. He has had a disappointing first year in Pittsburgh posting three goals and 12 assists in 43 games played. Robert Bortuzzo will be a healthy scratch to make room for Ehrhoff. Rotoworld.com

    • Hillen and Volpatti scratched Wednesday night
      Washington defenseman Jack Hillen and forward Aaron Volpatti will both be healthy scratches Wednesday against the Penguins.

      Erik Cole continued his recent hot streak Tuesday night as he scored his 18th goal of the season in a 4-2 loss to Winnipeg.

    • Rob Zepp stumbles against Canes
      Rob Zepp had a night to forget in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to Carolina.

      Advice: Zepp allowed four goals on 35 shots in the defeat, which drops his record to 5-2-0 and may put an end to his fairly tale run for now. With Steve Mason seemingly ready to return to the Flyers lineup, Zepp will probably find his way back to the AHL soon. Rotoworld.com

    • Moore out; Hunwick in vs. Flames on Tuesday
      John Moore will be scratched as Matt Hunwick takes his place next to Dan Boyle to create New York's third defensive unit on Tuesday versus Calgary.

      Advice: Even if you had both players, neither would amount to much fantasy value with no goals and merely a dozen points between them in 75 combined games. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 3:39 pm
    • 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

    • Christian Ehrhoff is very close to returning
      Christian Ehrhoff (concussion) took part in contact drills during Tuesday's practice.

      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

      Rob Zepp turned aside 21 of 23 shots in Sunday's 3-2 win over Washington.

      Advice: With Steve Mason still a week away from returning, the Flyers have turned to Zepp in back-to-back starts this weekend. It wasn't always pretty, but he came through in a big way by winning both games. His record improves to 5-1-0 on the season and he has a 2.63 goals-against-average and a .894 save percentage. Philadelphia improves to 2-0-1 in their last three games. Rotoworld.com

He has now missed 16 consecutive games with the injury but it finally looks like he will make a return some time next week. The 31-year-old was having a disappointing season before going down.

"He had contact (Friday). I want to hear a report from our trainers just how he was after contact. Usually it's a couple hours after contact, but he will travel with us. He'll get another skate in (Saturday). It was encouraging (Friday) that he lasted through the contact drills. It wasn't a long practice, but it gave us some idea of where he's at that way."

      Keith Kinkaid will get the start in goal on Saturday for New Jersey as they take on the Carolina Hurricanes.

      Advice: Kinkaid gets only the occasional start as the Devils usually rely on Cory Schneider between the pipes, but with New Jersey playing the second game of a back-to-back, Schneider will get the night off and Kinkaid will get the call. Kinkaid is 2-4-3 with a 2.76 GAA and a .910 save percentage. Put Kinkaid in your lineup if you normally would. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Bob McKenzie notes that while Emelin is a "tough nut", the likely length of absence is "4-6 weeks". But he will definitely be out a week as he needs to be re-evaluated before a firm prognosis is given. A lot of uncertainty there, but at the good news is that he should be ready to go by the time the playoffs roll around in mid-April. Emelin may have finished his regular season with 13 points, 53 PIMs, and 157 hits (team lead) in 55 games. Rotoworld.com

    • Ben Bishop turns aside 24 shots to earn win
      Ben Bishop turned aside 24-of-25 shots fired his way in a 4-1 win over Anaheim on Wednesday.

      Advice: Bishop picked up his 29th win of the year and his third in four starts. He has bounced back from a few poor performances to go on this nice streak. The 28 year-old remains one of the best fantasy options at goalie as long as he is the starter for one of the best teams in the league in Tampa Bay. He has a 2.42 GAA and .912 save percentage in 46 appearances this year. Rotoworld.com

    • Ben Bishop is still Tampa Bay's No. 1 goalie
      Ben Bishop is still Tampa Bay's starting goaltender.

      Advice: He has had a couple of lackluster performances in his past four outings, but he won't be losing the number one gig to Andrei Vasilevskiy yet. "To go back to me against Anaheim meant a lot to me," Bishop said of coach Jon Cooper's decision. "Coop and I have been doing this together now, and it's nice to know that he has my back and trusts me to get a big win against a big team." Bishop also played well against San Jose on Sunday in his last start. Vasilevskiy is slated to be Tampa Bay's netminder of the future, but Bishop still has plenty to give. Rotoworld.com
