    • Jean-Sebastien Dea playing well in AHL
      Jean-Sebastien Dea has been playing well in the AHL.

      Advice: Dea was undrafted but signed with the Penguins after scoring 45 goals and 85 points in 68 games with Rouyn-Noranda of the QMJHL in 2013. He followed up with a 49 goal performance last season and has eight goals and 18 points in 26 games with the Baby Pens this season in the AHL. He is an offensive center and that could be a problem in cracking the Penguins lineup, but it's a good problem for Pittsburgh to have. Rotoworld.com

    • Bruins continue to struggle scoring goals
      The Boston Bruins have had a hard time putting the puck in the net this season.

      Advice: The Bruins have scored two goals or fewer in nine of their last 12 games (including four of their last five). "Too many passes and not enough shots," forward Patrice Bergeron said. "You know, it's definitely making their life easy when we do that." The Bruins are 16-14-3 and what may be even more shocking is that they are currently out of a playoff spot in the Eastern conference. Rotoworld.com

    • Derrick Pouliot scores in NHL debut
      Derrick Pouliot scored in his NHL debut on Saturday.

      Advice: Not only did he score, but Pouliot did it on his first shot. The defenseman saw 15:07 minutes of action, including 2:28 on the power play. He was selected eighth overall in the 2012 Draft and is worth selecting in keeper pools as he had 20 points in 23 AHL games before his recall. Rotoworld.com

    • Filip Forsberg scores 13th goal on Saturday
      Filip Forsberg scored his 13th goal of the season in Saturday's 5-4 OT win over the Wild.

      Advice: Forsberg's goal early in the third period gave Nashville a 4-3 lead in the game. If the season ended today, the 20-year-old would be a slam dunk to win the Calder trophy (League's top rookie). The young Swede has 31 points in 31 games but what might be even more impressive is his plus-24 rating. He is a must-own across the board. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 5:59 am
    • Sean Couturier continues picking up points
      Sean Couturier had a goal and an assist on Saturday.

      Advice: Couturier has nine goals and 17 points in 32 games thus far but has four goals and nine points in his last nine games. The center just turned 22 earlier in the month and is showing some scoring capabilities as he has always been a terrific player in his own end. Rotoworld.com

    • Mattias Ekholm scores GWG vs Minnesota
      Mattias Ekholm scored the overtime winner in Saturday's 5-4 win over Minnesota.

      Advice: Ekholm picked a great time to score his first goal of the season. "Always in OT you want to be the clutch guy and score that goal," Ekholm said. "Just to get the two points; big start for us on this little road trip before Christmas." The 24-year-old has been more of a solid defensive presence in the NHL. He has seven points and a plus-8 rating in 31 games this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Matt Read picks up two assists on Saturday
      Matt Read had two assists on Saturday in the Flyers 7-4 win over Toronto.

      Advice: Read has a goal and five points in his last five games as he has finally started scoring again. The winger has three goals and 10 points in 32 games but had gone eight straight games without a point before his current streak. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 5:51 am
    • Max Pacioretty collects two assists vs Ottawa
      Max Pacioretty registered two assists in Saturday's 4-1 win over Ottawa.

      Advice: Pacioretty was a game-time decision after taking a hit from Clayton Stoner that sent him into the boards awkwardly on Thursday night. Not only did Pacioretty play, but he played very well. Montreal's top line of Pacioretty, Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher just keep on producing. Pacioretty has five assists in his last three games. The 26-year-old leads the team in points with 27. Rotoworld.com

    • Nikolay Kulemin scores his sixth Saturday
      Nikolay Kulemin scored an empty net goal to seal a 3-1 win for the Islanders on Saturday.

      Advice: When the Islanders inked Kulemin in the off-season, it was thought he could return to his former glory in Toronto as the New Yorkers planned to play him with Mikhail Grabovski, his linemate with the Maple Leafs. But Kulemin is now a third liner with the capabilities to score 10-15 goals a season. He now has six. Rotoworld.com

    • Keith Kinkaid's first three starts shootouts
      Keith Kinkaid is in the record books as all of his first three starts have gone into a shootout.

      Advice: Kinkaid picked up his first NHL win on Friday as he stopped all three Lightning shooters after overtime ended. He is 1-1-2 this season as he has also played twice in relief of Cory Schneider. Look for the netminder to see more action as the season progresses. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 5:19 am
    • Jeff Carter heating up again
      Jeff Carter has two goals and four assists in his last three games.

      Advice: Carter had a big four point night on Thursday and added his ninth goal of the season on Saturday to give him 25 points in 34 games. Keep him in your lineup. Rotoworld.com

    • Devan Dubnyk surprised at 3rd straight start
      Devan Dubnyk was surprised that he has played at much as he has this season.

      Advice: OF course, when you take into account the poor start of Mike Smith, then it's not so surprising. "If you asked me at the start of the year, this would have been more opportunity than I would have expected," Dubnyk said. "I'm happy with that, and the main goal for me is to try not to change the way I've approached games. It's worked well for me, just not putting too much pressure on myself going into the game, just concentrating on the things I've been working on and using those in the game. This year was the first season in a while I wasn't expecting a heavy workload, so getting some games in a row feels more normal." Dubnyk is 6-3-2 with a 2.68 GAA and a .919 save percentage but is only 1-2-1 in his last four. Rotoworld.com

    • Coach likes Pat Maroon on fourth line
      Coach Bruce Boudreau enjoys putting Pat Maroon on the fourth line because of his size and toughness.

      Advice: Boudreau likes playing Maroon with Nate Thompson and Tim Jackman as the trio gives the Ducks a very good fourth unit. "They’re a hard line to play against," Boudreau said. "And when they’re skating, they make it difficult. When they’re on and they’re pinning teams in the other zone, it really adds to the next line that comes on. I think it’s vitally important that you have four lines that can play. We’ve been lucky the last couple of years." While Maroon has far more fantasy value when a top-six forward, this could be the best thing for the Ducks as a team. Rotoworld.com

    • Brent Burns scores GWG in OT against Blues
      Brent Burns scored the game-winning goal in overtime to help the Sharks defeat the Blues on Saturday night 3-2.

      Advice: Burns scored with 37.5 seconds left in the frame, a power play tally with assists from Joe Pavelski and Logan Couture. The goal was Burns’ 10th of the season, to go with 26 points, so he’s clearly been one of the more valuable defensemen from a fantasy perspective. Andrew Desjardins and Marc-Edouard Vlasic picked up the other markers. Rotoworld.com

    • December has been bumpy for Devan Dubnyk
      Devan Dubnyk gave up four goals on 35 shots as the Arizona Coyotes lost 4-2 to the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday.

      Advice: Dubnyk only has one win in December and is 1-2-1 in his last four decisions. Overall, the towering netminder is 6-3-2 with a .919 save percentage, still clearly more competitive than Mike Smith's often-disastrous work. Rotoworld.com

    • Max Pacioretty will indeed play vs. Senators
      Max Pacioretty will indeed play Saturday night against the Senators.

      Advice: Pathches leads the team in goals with 13 and points with 25, so having him in the lineup is an clear boon for the Habs. Rotoworld.com

    • Eller back Saturday night v Ottawa
      Lars Eller will return to the Montreal lineup Saturday night against Ottawa.

      Advice: Eller, who has been out for the last two weeks with a lower-body injury, looked good in practice the past few days and seems good to go. He will center a line featuring P.A. Parenteau and David Desharnais. If you need Eller, get ready to activate him. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 7:37 am
    • Pacioretty likely won't play Saturday v Sens
      Max Pacioretty (ribs) will likely not play Saturday night against Ottawa although he was on the ice for Saturday morning's practice.

      Advice: There are conflicting reports as to whether Pacioretty will be able to suit up against the Sens. He was on the ice doing flow drills with Brendan Gallagher and Alex Galchenyuk. That said, we would play it safe and keep Pacioretty on reserve for Saturday night's contest. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 7:33 am
    • Penguins recall Derrick Pouliot from minors
      The Pittsburgh Penguins have recalled Derrick Pouliot from the minors.

      Advice: Pouliot is probably the Penguins best prospect in the AHL and the defenseman has seven goals and 20 points in 23 games thus far. With Christian Ehrhoff questionable and Olli Maatta and Robert Bortuzzo out of action, the Penguins are in need of blueline help. He is worth picking up in keeper pools and should see some ice time on the second power play. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 7:00 am
    • David Dubnyk confirmed to start Saturday
      Updating a previous item, David Dubnyk will get the start in goal for Arizona Saturday.

      Advice: The Coyotes are in Los Angeles to take on the Kings. Dubnyk will make his third straight start and is 6-2-2 this season with a 2.56 GAA and a .922 save percentage. Mike Smith will stay on the bench once again. Rotoworld.com

    • Kieth Kinkaid gets his first NHL win
      Keith Kinkaid earned his first NHL win by stopping 26-of-28 shots in the Devils 3-2 SO win over Tampa Bay on Friday night.

      Advice: The 25 year-old was making his third start in the NHL and helped his team snap a five game losing streak. Even more impressive is the fact that the rookie got the win over a strong Tampa Bay side and stopped all three Lightning shooters in the overtime. Perhaps the Devils will give Cory Schneider a few more days off if they get performances like these from the backups. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 8:37 pm
    • Max Pacioretty (UBI) might play on Saturday
      Max Pacioretty (upper body) might be back as early as Saturday.

      Advice: Pacioretty was hospitalized after being knocked into the boards during Thursday's game, so the fact that he might not even miss a full contest is remarkable. He has 13 goals and 25 points in 33 games this season. As previously reported, if Pacioretty can't play, then Michael Bournival will probably to take his spot on a line with Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher. Rotoworld.com

      Confirming an earlier report, Keith Kinkaid will indeed get his third start of the season Friday night against Tampa Bay.

    • Habs call Max Pacioretty (UBI) day-to-day
      Max Pacioretty (upper body) is day-to-day, according to Canadiens coach Michel Therrien.

      Advice: Pacioretty was hospitalized after he was knocked into the boards by Anaheim's Clayton Stoner. Obviously with him being listed as day-to-day, there's still the chance that he'll be back in the near future, but it's hard to say unless more details are revealed. While he's sidelined, Michael Bournival is projected to take his spot on a line with Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher. Rotoworld.com

    • Devils will likely start Keith Kinkaid Friday
      Keith Kinkaid will probably start for the New Jersey Devils on Friday.

      Advice: It's a rare night off for Cory Schneider, who has already made 30 starts this season. Kinkaid is still searching for his first NHL victory after turning aside 31 of 33 shots in regulation in a 3-2 shootout loss on Monday. Cory Schneider should be back between the pipes on Saturday.

    • Max Pacioretty suffers UBI in loss to Ducks
      Max Pacioretty suffered an upper-body injury in Thursday's loss to Anaheim and he went to the hospital as a precaution.

      Advice: He had to be helped off the ice after he was pushed into the boards by Anaheim defenseman Clayton Stoner and he appeared to suffer a rib injury on the play. An update on Pacioretty's status is expected to come Friday, but it wouldn't be surprising if he wasn't available for Saturday night against Ottawa. Rotoworld.com

    • Jeff Carter has fifth career four-point game
      Jeff Carter recorded his fifth career four-point game on Thursday night as the Kings beat the Blues 6-4.

      Advice: Carter's lone goal tied the game up at four just 20 seconds into the third period. Martin Brodeur simply couldn't get over into to prevent the one-timer from going in. Carter now leads the team in assists with 16 and points with 24 in 33 games this season. He has yet to have a five-point game. Rotoworld.com

    • Lars Eller takes warmup but still out
      Lars Eller took part in the pre-game warmup on Thursday, but he is not in Montreal's lineup.

      Advice: Eller has been out since December 5th with a lower body injury. He should be nearing a return. The 25-year-old has seven goals and 11 points in 28 games this season. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 5:20 pm
    • Patrice Bergeron snaps goalless slump
      Patrice Bergeron netted his sixth goal of the season in Wednesday's overtime win over Minnesota.

      Advice: He snapped an 11-game goalless drought in the process. Bergeron hasn't been quiet offensively of late, with six points in his last six outings, but he had been starving in the goal department. The ripple effect of David Krejci's return should help players like Bergeron get back on track in Boston. Rotoworld.com

    • Max Pacioretty records three assists Tuesday

    • Devan Dubnyk helps Coyotes snap losing streak
      Devan Dubnyk stopped 31-of-32 shots faced in Arizona's 2-1 OT win over Edmonton on Tuesday night.

      Advice: Dubnyk helped the Coyotes snap a nine game home losing streak by standing tall through regulation and overtime against an equally desperate Oilers squad. With Mike Smith really struggling, it's highly likely we see more of Dubnyk in the near future. The 28 year-old is 6-2-2 on the season with a respectable 2.56 goals against average to go with a .922 save percentage. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 10:08 pm
    • Devan Dubnyk will probably start on Tuesday
      Look for Devan Dubnyk to play between the pipes on Tuesday.

      Advice: Dubnyk was the first goaltender off the ice Tuesday morning, which is usually a good indicator of who the starter will be. Dubnyk has a 2.74 GAA and .917 save percentage in 11 contests in 2014-15. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 11:56 am
    • Lars Eller returns to practice Monday
      Lars Eller (upper body) returned to practice Monday.

      Advice: He won't suit up in Tuesday's match against Carolina, but said he expected to be back "sooner rather than later." When he is able to return, coach Michel Therrien has to decide if Eller will play center or the wing. If he plays at center then it could result in Alex Galchenyuk being moved back to the wing. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 5:58 am
    • NJ G Keith Kinkaid solid in shootout loss
      Devils backup goalie Keith Kinkaid, playing in his home town of Long Island, turned in a strong performance Monday night, stopping 31 of the 33 shots he faced in regulation and overtime before the Islanders recorded a 3-2 win in a shootout.

      Advice: In five appearances this season, Kinkaid is 0-1-2. His goals-against average is an impressive 1.71. His save percentage isn't bad either, at .942. There's no point in picking him up for your fantasy team, though, since he doesn't play nearly enough. Cory Schneider gets the vast majority of starts for the Devils. Kinkaid's effort Monday night against the Isles was reminiscent of his start against the Blackhawks last week, when he blocked 37 of the 39 shots he faced in what also was a 3-2 shootout loss for the Devils. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 7:26 pm
    • Keith Kinkaid will start against Isles Monday
      Keith Kinkaid will play between the pipes on Monday against the New York Islanders.

      Advice: The Islanders are hosting the game and Kinkaid is from Long Island, so this is a chance for him to play there before the Islanders move to Brooklyn next season. "My dad grew up an Islander fan and I was an Islander fan and I've been here quite a bit," said Kinkaid. "It's pretty fun to be able to get to play in the arena." Kinkaid has a 1.64 GAA and .943 save percentage in four contests in 2014-15. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 12:21 pm
    • Patrice Bergeron missed part of loss to OTT
      Patrice Bergeron missed a good chunk of the third period because of a hand injury on Saturday.

      Advice: Bergeron was slashed by Senators' forward Mike Hoffman and did not return in the period. The 29-year-old seemed to have avoided serious injury though, because he did come back for overtime. The Bruins have been hit hard by injuries and losing Bergeron would have been devastating. Rotoworld.com
      Dec 14, 7:12 am
    • Devan Dubnyk has 32 saves in SO loss
      Devan Dubnyk made 32 saves in the Coyotes’ 4-3 shootout loss to Minnesota on Saturday night.

      Advice: He doesn’t get the win, but we think this should earn him more starts as Mike Smith has been horrendous. Dubnyk was 5:53 from a regulation win when win Zach Parise beat him on the power play. He has a 2.74 goals-against average and .917 save percentage this season. Rotoworld.com
      Dec 13, 8:19 pm
    • Devan Dubnyk to start vs. Wild
      Devan Dubnyk will get the start against the Wild on Saturday night.

      Advice: Dubnyk hasn't beaten Minnesota since 2010, but each of his previous five career starts were when he was with Edmonton. Then again, perhaps this year's Arizona team doesn't lend itself towards more confidence. The Wild have scored a dozen goals on 101 shots over his last three starts, each in 2013. Rotoworld.com
      Dec 13, 2:25 pm
    • Sean Couturier is now on six-game scoring run
      Philadelphia Flyers forward Sean Couturier extended his scoring streak to six straight games (three goals, four assists) as his team beat the Carolina Hurricanes 5-1 on Saturday.

      Advice: Could this be a sign of a breakout for the eighth pick of the 2011 NHL Draft? At 22, there's always a chance that he could have untapped potential. The Flyers are getting more offense from their supporting cast lately, even though Claude Giroux (two assists) and Jakub Voracek (one goal, one assist) are still playing very well. Rotoworld.com
      Dec 13, 12:45 pm
    • Filip Forsberg nets two assists in 5-1 win
      Filip Forsberg picked up two assists, including one on the power play, in Nashville's 5-1 win over Arizona on Thursday night.

      Advice: Forsberg continues to lead the Predators in goals (12), assists (17) and points (29). For perspective on how dominant he's been, team captain and traditional leader Shea Weber has only 17 points on the season himself. Rotoworld.com
      Dec 11, 9:54 pm
    • Sean Couturier scores, adds assist in win
      Sean Couturier helped the Flyers slam New Jersey 4-1 on Thursday night, scoring a goal and an assist in the win.

      Advice: The points extended Couturier's point streak to five games, giving the 22-year-old 14 points in 28 games. Fantasy players might want to ride out the younger's hot streak, but we still project the forward to finish around the 40 point range this season. Rotoworld.com
