    • Dylan Olsen clears waivers
      Dylan Olsen cleared waivers on Friday and was assigned to San Antonio of the AHL.

      Advice: Olsen, who was a nice surprise during the 2013-14 campaign, has reverted to mediocrity this season with eight points in 44 games. He has no fantasy value at this time. Rotoworld.com

    • Luongo wants payback v Devils Saturday
      Look for Roberto Luongo to get the start Saturday night against the Devils.

      Advice: Luongo, who snapped a five-game losing streak Thursday night stopping 31 shots in a 3-2 win over Columbus, will be looking for payback against the Devils. The one time he faced New Jersey this season (October 11th) he allowed five goals on 14 shots and was pulled early in the second period. Look for Luongo to have a better game Saturday. Rotoworld.com

    • Matthew Nieto okay after taking six stitches
      Matthew Nieto needed six stitches close a couple of cuts suffered on Thursday.

      Advice: Nieto was cut just below the eye when Ryan Getzlaf's shot hit him in the first period. While he was unable to return for the remainder of the period, he did return for the second and third stanzas. Nieto has four goals and 12 points in 39 games this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Antti Niemi expected to get start Saturday
      Look for Antti Niemi to be between the pipes on Saturday.

      Advice: Niemi has won his last two starts and is 20-11-5 this season with a 2.58 GAA and a .911 save percentage. He will face the Chicago Blackhawks but it will be Hawks third game in four nights on a California road trip, so they may be tired. Rotoworld.com

    • Gustavsson could be back in NHL by Feb. 7th
      Jonas Gutavsson may return to the NHL during the week of February 7th.

      Advice: He will start Saturday night for the Grand Rapids Griffins of the AHL on a conditioning stint and may need another game or two to shake off the rust after being out of action since November 5th with a shoulder injury. The Red Wings could recall him for games against Arizona or Colorado next week. Petr Mrazek will continue to get the starts until either Gustavsson or Jimmy Howard returns to action, but he has struggled and the Wings will make the switch as soon as one of their veteran netminders return to health.

    • Martin Havlat has a baby daughter
      Martin Havlat is the proud father of a baby daughter.

      Advice: Nikola was born on Thursday. Havlat had a four game scoring streak snapped on Friday but he has been scoring of late and could be worth looking at in a deep pool. In the meantime, congratulations to the Havlat family on the birth of Nikola. Rotoworld.com

    • Dan Boyle pointless in his last eight games
      Dan Boyle has gone pointless in his last eight games.

      Advice: It was thought that Boyle was breaking out of his slump as he has seven points in seven games before the eight game pointless streak but he did break his nose three weeks ago and that could be affecting his play. Boyle has nine points in 30 games this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Subban unlikely to play this week
      Malcolm Subban will likely not make his NHL debut this week despite being just selected as the AHL PLayer of the Week.

      Advice: After Saturday's enounter with the Kings, the Bruins only play once this week-- Wednesday against the Rangers. If Subban is still with the Bruins next weekend, he may get a chance to play but the speculation is that Niklas Svedberg could be back in Boston by then with Subban back in the AHL. Are the Bruins showcasing Subban for a trade? It is possible as Rask is signed to a long-term deal. If that is the case, Subban may well stay in Boston beyond the next week or so. We will keep an eye on this situation. Rotoworld.com

    • Adam Henrique okay after taking shot on hand
      Adam Henrique's x-rays came back negative on Friday after he took a shot off his hand.

      Advice: Henrique managed to finish the game as well. He has 10 goals and 26 points in 42 games this season with a minus-two rating. Henrique has not scored a goal in his past 11 games. Rotoworld.com

    • Taylor Hall travels with Oilers to Calgary
      Taylor Hall (leg) traveled with the Oilers to Calgary and will be a game-time decision on Saturday.

      Advice: Hall suffered a bone bruise during practice on Monday and has yet to return to action since the All-Star break. He has 11 goals and 29 points in 41 games this season but is capable of so much more. Rotoworld.com

    • Keith Aulie to return to Oilers lineup
      Keith Aulie will get back into the Edmonton lineup on Saturday.

      Advice: Aulie has been a healthy scratch for the last 11 games but with Nikita Nikitin out with a shoulder injury, Aulie will return. He has no points in 13 games this season and was suspended the last time he played when he put an illegal check to the head on Matt Stajan. Aulie has some fantasy value with 44 penalty minutes in his 13 games this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Paul Byron having troublr on breakaways
      Paul Byron is having great difficulty scoring on breakaways this season.

      Advice: Byron has scored only once despite numerous opportunities. "This has never happened to me in my life before. Normally, I used to be pretty good on breakaways, and for whatever reason, this year, they just aren’t going in," Byron said. "The key is just try to take the positive out of it — that I’m getting (breakaways) — and try not to mentally take myself down. Because if you think you’re not going to score, you’re not. I think it’s just a matter of time before one of them finally goes in." Byron has five goals and 14 points this season in 49 games so his fantasy value is negligible. Rotoworld.com

    • Henrik Sedin collects two assists in 5-2 win
      Henrik Sedin collected two more assists in Vancouver's 5-2 win over Buffalo on Friday night.

      Advice: They weren't the prettiest of assists, but they count just the same. Henrik Sedin's helpers came thanks to Nick Bonino's excellent batting skills to make it 3-1 in second period, and Radim Vrbata putting home the empty-net goal. With Daniel Sedin picking up an assist on Bonino's goal as well, the Sedin twins now co-lead the team in assists with 31 and points with 40. Rotoworld.com

    • Pat Sharp nets fifth career four-point game
      Patrick Sharp recorded his fifth career four-point game on Friday night, helping the Blackhawks defeat the Ducks 4-1.

      Advice: For the third time, it was of the four-assist variety, and he perhaps saved his best helper for last. Already up 3-1 midway in the third, Sharp stripped Devante Smith-Pelly along the right hashmark and zipped a perfect pass through Ben Lovejoy and onto Patrick Kane's stick for the easy tap-in. It was a thing of beauty. Sharp is now fifth on the team in scoring with 20 assists and 30 points in just 35 games this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Andersen allows four goals in loss to Hawks
      Frederik Andersen was beaten for four goals on 33 shots in Friday night's 4-1 loss to the Blackhawks.

      Advice: This was not Andersen's finest work as he was beaten cleanly three times. The Ducks have now allowed 10 combined goals in two games to the Blackhawks and Sharks. Andersen falls to 27-7-5 with a .918 save percentage and 2.27 GAA through 41 games this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Max Talbot nets fourth goal of season in win
      Max Talbot tucked home a rebound 13:49 into the first period for his fourth goal of the season Friday night against Nashville.

      Advice: The goal turned out to be all Colorado needed in their 3-0 win as Talbot finished with two shots, a hit and a block through 13:53 of ice time. Talbot also skated 2:35 on the penalty kill. He now has four goals, 12 points, and 25 PIMs through 50 games this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Ribeiro collects career high 22 PIMs vs. Avs
      Mike Ribeiro collected a single game career high 22 penalty minutes on Friday night against Colorado.

      Advice: Down by two goals, Ribeiro blew a gasket as he took an Unsportsmanlike Conduct minor (two minutes), Game Misconduct (10 minutes), and Misconduct (10 minutes) penalty all at 6:33 of the third period. He now has 36 PIMs this season, which ranks fourth on the team, just three behind a trio of co-leaders. Ribeiro also leads the team in points with 43 to go along with his 10 goals. Rotoworld.com
