Player Notes

  • Seguin loves what GM Jim Nill is doing in DAL
    Tyler Seguin was happy with the Stars' acquisition of Patrick Sharp.

    Advice: "It was kind of more of a, ‘There’s Jim Nill again’ kind of reaction," said Seguin. "Be very quiet during most of the trades and then all of the sudden make a big bang. In the last three seasons, including [Rich] Peverley and myself coming over. On July 4, I was sitting on my phone just waiting for Jim to do something. It’s kind of been his date. Around there was our acquisition from Boston, then the [Jason] Spezza and [Ales] Hemsky deal. Now Sharp, Niemi and Oduya. Jim is doing his thing and making our team better. That gives the players a lot of confidence as well." Rotoworld.com Today, 6:28 am
  • Bruins will rely on younger defensemen
    The Boston Bruins will rely on young defenseman Zach Trotman to eat up some minutes for them in 2015-16.

    Advice: Trotman didn't look out of place during his time with the Bruins last season. He finished the year on a pairing with Zdeno Chara and he should see a good amount of action going forward. "In Trotman’s situation, he’s made some pretty good plays and he’s been pretty reliable," said head coach Claude Julien. At some point you have to balance out your back end depending on who you’re playing. Some teams have two or three good lines and if you put all your best D’s on one pair, you become vulnerable. We’ve had to rely on [young guys], and at the same time, I think they’ve been earning our trust with the way they’ve been playing." Rotoworld.com Today, 5:50 am
  • Matt Martin generated most hits since lockout
    New York Islanders winger Matt Martin easily leads all NHL skaters in hits since 2012-13, the most recent lockout.

    Advice: Martin has delivered 974 hits in 205 games played. He's the only player who cleared 800 hits in that time frame, as Cal Clutterbuck comes in at 768, the only other player above 700. Martin is also a source of PIM (114 in 2014-15, 561 in 358 career games), so he could be a somewhat-interesting utility consideration if you can stomach the loss in traditional stats.

  • Valeri Nichushkin says his hip is healthy
    Dallas Stars forward Valeri Nichushkin says his surgically repaired hip is "feeling great."

    Advice: His 2014-15 season was largely aborted, as he only appeared in eight games after a promising rookie year. Nichushkin is an awfully interesting wild card, especially if he can manage to make his way into a stacked Stars' top six forward group. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:22 am
  • Barret Jackman feels like a rookie with Preds
    At 34, Barret Jackman has that fish-out-of-water feeling as he approaches his first training camp with the Nashville Predators.

    Advice: He registered 803 regular season games played with the St. Louis Blues, so one can understand the rookie feeling of uncertainty he's experiencing right now. He won't be very fantasy-relevant on a loaded Predators blueline, although injuries could conceivably open up chances for him to fill "grit" stat categories. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:27 am
