    • Carey Price facing plenty of shots
      Carey Price has faced the second-most shots in the league.

      Advice: He has turned aside 804 of the 868 shots he's faced in 29 outings this season. Price ranks seventh in the league with a .926 save percentage and his 2.23 goals-against average, which would be a personal best if he can keep it up, has him in eighth place among eligible netminders. The Canadiens need to provide him with a little more support defensively, but Price has been a reliable goaltender this year. Rotoworld.com

    • Ben Bishop poised to return this weekend
      Ben Bishop appears as though he'll be back from a lower-body injury on Saturday.

      Advice: Tampa Bay reassigned Andrei Vasilevskiy, who was up with the team on an emergency basis, to the minors on Wednesday. He played well during Bishop's absence, picking up two wins in three appearances. We'll keep you posted but it looks like fantasy owners will get Bishop back this weekend. Rotoworld.com

    • Roberto Luongo moves up career wins list
      Roberto Luongo registered his 386th career victory on Monday.

      Advice: That gives him sole possession of 12th place on the NHL's all-time win list. He just surpassed Mike Vernon and is three victories behind Dominik Hasek for the 11th spot. Luongo doesn't want to reflect on milestones right now, as he is focused on the 2014-15 season. "The standings is what is important to me right now," he said. "I just want to keep accumulating wins as a team, stay in the hunt and hopefully grab one of those [playoff] spots." Rotoworld.com

    • Brandon Pirri OK with in-house competition
      Brandon Pirri doesn't mind battling for his spot in the lineup.

      Advice: He was scratched last Saturday against Pittsburgh, along with Jimmy Hayes, but both of them were back in the fold for Monday's rematch with the Penguins. Brad Boyes and Tomas Fleischmann were scratched on that night. "There is definite in-house competition, which makes everyone better," Pirri said. "For me, I have to produce when I have the opportunity to be in the lineup. I haven't cashed in recently. I just have to do it." He doesn't have a point in his past 10 appearances. Rotoworld.com

    • Jimmy Howard has to improve in shootouts
      Jimmy Howard has struggled mightily in shootouts this season.

      Advice: He has allowed 11 goals on 15 shots for a dismal .267 save percentage. Howard's career in shootouts looks much better, as he owns a .677 save percentage (107 saves, 158 shots). "I don't know, for some reason, it's been a tough go this year," he said. "And, I think, really to be honest with you, it's just getting that win — get that one win, you know, everything will calm down from there." The shootout is costing Howard wins and it may start to chip away at his confidence if this play continues. Rotoworld.com

    • Loui Eriksson enters break riding hot streak
      Loui Eriksson entered the Christmas break as Boston's hottest player.

      Advice: He has registered six goals, including two overtime winners, and two assists in his past eight contests. "I think he’s skating better," coach Claude Julien said. "When you're confident, a lot of things come easy to you; when you're not, you're skating out there sometimes you feel like you've got a piano on your back and your sluggish and everything else. But right now I think he's feeling it." Rotoworld.com

    • Ryan Stanton isn't getting much ice time
      Ryan Stanton is averaging just 15:15 minutes per game in 2014-15.

      Advice: Stanton has been getting the least responsibility among the Canucks' defensemen so far this season. He had 16 points in 2013-14, but he probably won't come close to matching that mark this season. He has three assists in 23 contests so far. Rotoworld.com

    • Rick Nash gets belated hat trick
      The NHL awarded the Rangers' fourth goal on Tuesday to Rick Nash after it was initially credited to Martin St. Louis.

      Advice: As a result, Nash scored his first hat trick as a member of the New York Rangers. He's been fantastic this season with 23 goals and 36 points in 32 contests. It's been quite the turnaround from his disappointing 2013-14 campaign where he scored just 26 goals and 39 points in 65 games. Rotoworld.com

    • Andy Greene hasn't scored a goal in 2014-15
      Andy Greene is still looking for his first goal of the season.

      Advice: Greene had a season-high eight goals in 2013-14, but he's been unsuccessful in 40 shots on goal over 36 contests this season. He's also been limited to nine assists, which leaves him with little to no fantasy value in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Blue Jackets lobby for all-star game 'C'
      The Columbus Blue Jackets are hoping that either Sergei Bobrovsky or Nick Foligno will be named as one of the two captains for the 2015 NHL All-Star Game.

      Advice: The team captains will be tasked with drafting the all-star teams. Given that Columbus is going to host the upcoming all-star game, it makes some sense to allow them to have one of the team captains. However, the NHL might balk at it because Bobrovsky and Foligno would be first-time all-stars. Rotoworld.com

    • Weiss hurt in return, but says he feels fine
      Stephen Weiss logged just 8:55 of ice time in his return to the lineup from a shoulder injury on Tuesday night.

      Advice: He appeared to receive an elbow to the head from Sabres defenseman Nikita Zadorov, which removed him from the game. However, Weiss insists that he's fine. "I didn't see him," he said. "I couldn't tell you what happened. I was a little woozy there but I feel fine. I had my bell rung a little bit but I went through the protocol." We'll keep him as active for now. The Wings play Saturday against Ottawa in their first game back from the Christmas break. Rotoworld.com

    • Andre Benoit scores first goal of 2014-15
      Andre Benoit netted his first goal as a member of the Sabres on Tuesday night.

      Advice: He scored a shorthanded goal in the second period to give Buffalo a 3-1 lead, but Detroit's power play got the last laugh in the third when it struck three times to break the game wide open. Benoit has produced four points in 25 games. Rotoworld.com

    • Visnovsky gets his 10th point of 2014-15
      Lubomir Visnovsky had an assist in a 3-1 loss to Montreal on Tuesday.

      Advice: Visnovsky has two goals and 10 points in 24 games in 2014-15. His fantasy value in recent years has been limited due to injuries, but he's an above average blueliner from an offensive perspective when he's healthy. Rotoworld.com

    • Leon Draisaitl might be sent back to WHL
      There's speculation that Leon Draisaitl might end up heading back to the Western Hockey League.

      Advice: The Kelowna Rockets are attempting to acquire his WHL rights and they have ties with the Oilers. This will count as the first season of Draisaitl's entry-level contract regardless because he's long since reached the 10-game mark. However, if they send him down before he plays in his 40th game, then it will delay his eventual eligibility to become an unrestricted free agent by a year. Draisaitl has two goals and seven points in 34 games this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Vlad Tarasenko held scoreless in 2nd straight
      Vladimir Tarasenko and the Blues were held without a goal in Tuesday's 5-0 defeat at the hands of the Avalanche.

      Advice: Tarasenko has followed up a seven game point streak by being shut out in back-to-back contests. His breakout season has been a thing of beauty thus far and there's no reason think it won't continue. Rotoworld.com
