Player Notes

  • Bolts' Alex Killorn has been red hot
    Alex Killorn has been red hot for the Lightning during the postseason.

    Advice: He has notched four goals and six assists in his past eight games. Killorn has been held off the scoresheet in just two contests over that span. He has been clicking with Steve Stamkos and Valtteri Filppula, which has given Tampa Bay another potent scoring line after the "Triplets" (Tyler Johnson, Nikita Kucherov and Ondrej Palat). Killorn has six goals and 14 points in 11 playoff matches. Rotoworld.com

  • RFA Marcus Johansson enjoys his best season
    Marcus Johansson had the best season of his career in 2014-15.

    Advice: He hit the 20-goal mark for the first time and he recorded 47 points in 82 games. New coach Barry Trotz urged Johansson to shoot more and he was credited with a personal best total of 138. He skated mostly as a top-line right winger or on the second line as a left winger. His success comes at a good time, as he'll be a restricted free agent this summer. Rotoworld.com

  • Caps intend to give Tom Wilson a larger role
    The Capitals believe that Tom Wilson has more to give offensively and they are expecting more from him in 2015-16.

    Advice: "Willie is one of my favorites," coach Barry Trotz said. "I think he's got a great upside, but at the same time I don't see him as a fourth line winger for the Washington Capitals. To me, he's better than that." He saw plenty of playing time alongside Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom during November and December, but he wasn't able to stick with them and was eventually bumped down the depth chart. Wilson notched four goals, 17 points, 172 penalty minutes and 205 hits in 67 games this past season. If he can take advantage of his larger role and add more offense to his physical game then he will have great fantasy value. Rotoworld.com

  • Palat has first playoff three-point game
    Ondrej Palat helped pave the way to victory in Game 3 for Tampa Bay on Wednesday night.

    Advice: Palat registered his first career three point game in the playoffs with two goals and an assist. His first tally was on the power play as well. It was simply another stellar game for the 24 year old, who now has points in four straight games with four goals and seven points over that span. Palat now has six goals and 13 points this postseason. Rotoworld.com

  • Jesper Fast has first career multi-goal game
    Jesper Fast was a force for the Rangers in Game 3 on Wednesday night, scoring twice in his first career multi-goal game.

    Advice: Fast had perhaps his best career performance, now 87 total games old. His first goal was off a sweet forehand-backhand breakaway finish to make it 2-0 Rangers midway through the first period. But it was his second tally that loomed large, as he broke Tampa's momentum of three straight goals just 29 seconds after Alex Killorn made it 4-3 late in the second period. Fast also drew a tripping penalty on Andrej Sustr early in the third. Fast now has three goals and six points in 15 games this postseason. Rotoworld.com
