Player Notes

  • Michael Keranen will stick with Minnesota
    Michael Keranen has inked a on-year extension with the Minnesota Wild.

    Advice: Keranen had 10 goals and 37 points in 70 AHL games in 2014-15. He had a great 2013-14 campaign in SM-liiga with 52 points in 52 contests, but we wouldn't count on him having fantasy value next season. Keep in mind that he's 25 years old, so his offensive upside is limited. Rotoworld.com

  • Mark Barberio might play in Game 4
    Mark Barberio might end up playing in Game 4 on Friday.

    Advice: Matt Carle (undisclosed) is out and it remains to be seen if the Tampa Bay will still go with seven defensemen. If the Lightning do, then Barberio will be the one assuming the vacant roster spot. We probably won't know for sure until right before the start of the game though as the Lightning intend to include 21 players in their pregame warmups. Rotoworld.com

  • Sean Couturier had a great showing at Worlds
    Sean Couturier finished the 2015 World Championships with three goals and seven points in 10 games.

    Advice: Couturier won a gold medal with Team Canada. "Being a part of that experience, I would've done whatever was asked of me," Couturier said. "I was lucky enough to play my natural position. The players are so good there, it's easy to adjust to anything. It was such a different atmosphere than when you're with a group of guys for six or seven months. Everyone left their egos on the side and chipped in the same." Couturier went on to describe the tournament as the best hockey experience of his young career. The fact that it went so well for him on both a team and individual level should be a nice confidence boost going into the 2015-16 campaign. Rotoworld.com

  • Henrik Lundqvist will get the nod on Friday
    In case there was any doubt, Henrik Lundqvist is starting on Friday.

    Advice: When asked to name his starting goaltender, there was laughter and then Rangers coach Alain Vigneault responded with, "Is that a real question?" After being told that it was, Vigneault formally named Lundqvist as the starting goaltender. Lundqvist was one of the best goaltenders in the first two rounds of the playoffs, but he's allowed six goals in back-to-back games. Even with that in mind though, it would have been surprising to see Lundqvist get benched. This team is built around him and it will be very difficult for the Rangers to succeed if he's not at his best. Rotoworld.com

  • Joakim Nordstrom plays on 4th line in return
    Joakim Nordstrom logged 7:06 minutes in Game 3 on Thursday.

    Advice: It was Nordstrom's first game in a little over a month. Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville made some lineup changes because Game 2 went to triple-overtime and he wanted to get some fresh legs in there as a result. Nordstrom played alongside Marcus Kruger and Andrew Desjardins. Rotoworld.com
