Player Notes

  • Kuemper to start v Bolts Saturday
    It should come as no surprise that Darcy Kuemper will start in goal Saturday night against the Lightning.

    Advice: Well why not. He is only the second goalie in 71 years to earn shutouts in three of his first four games of the season. Talk about being white hot. Niklas Backstrom owners are going to have to wait a while before their guy gets even a whiff of regular playing time. Rotoworld.com

  • Henrik Lundqvist aims for rare win in MTL
    For whatever reason, New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist hasn't had much success in road games against the Montreal Canadiens lately.

    Advice: He hasn't started a regular season game at the Bell Centre since Jan. 15, 2012 and hasn't won there since Marc. 17, 2009, according to NHL.com's Arpon Basu. Rotoworld.com

  • James Neal, Patric Hornqvist have motivation
    Nashville Predators forward James Neal and Pittsburgh Penguins winger Patric Hornqvist both have added motivation for Saturday night as they face their respective former teams in the first head-to-head match since the big trade.

    Advice: Though not a guarantee, that motivation can often mean fantasy hockey dividends, whether it comes down to extra points or PIM. Neal is on a hot streak (all five goals in his last four games including Thursday's hat trick), while Hornqvist has been held off the board in his last two games. Both aren't shy about shooting, either. Rotoworld.com

  • Patric Hornqvist to face former teammates
    Patric Hornqvist will face his former teammates from Nashville for the first time on Saturday.

    Advice: The Predators will host the Penguins as Hornqvist and Nick Spaling will make their first appearance back in Nashville since the off-season deal. The deal has worked out for both sides thus far with Hornqvist compiling four goals and eight points in six games while James Neal, who went to the Predators has five goals for Nashville in the early going.

  • Blake Wheeler notches third goal vs. Tampa
    Blake Wheeler found a way to beat Ben Bishop on Friday night, unfortunately it was too little too late as the Jets fell 4-2.

    Advice: It was as though the puck and his stick were magnetically charged because Wheeler found a the puck, twice, in a crowd before whirling and scoring in the third. It was his third of the season. He led all skaters with eight shots and skated 20:58 with just under seven minutes of special teams play. Rotoworld.com
