    • Brian Elliott stops 9-15 in the third period
      Brian Elliott stopped nine of 15 shots for Team Foligno in the third period of Sunday's All-Star game. Team Toews won the battle, 17-12.

      Advice: Yeesh. Not quite why one leaves a family vacation at Turks and Caicos, but then again, it's just an exhibition. Elliott's Blues meanwhile are tied with Chicago with 62 points in the Central division, three behind leading Nashville, and just two ahead of Wild Card Winnipeg. Elliott has been a big part of St. Louis' success, pitching a 13-5-2 record with just 39 goals against in 22 games played this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Ryan Johansen wins All-Star game MVP
      Ryan Johansen was named the MVP in Sunday's NHL All-Star game.

      Advice: Johansen and Team Foligno lost, 17-12. The Blue Jackets' forward had two goals and one assist in the game. Islanders' forward John Tavares (four goals) probably deserved the MVP award, but the event was in Columbus, and the fans on Twitter had the final say. Only Anze Kopitar (Kings) and Zemgus Girgensons (Sabres) were held pointless in the game. Steven Stamkos (Lightning), Patrick Kane (Blackhawks), Claude Giroux (Flyers) and Alex Ovechkin (Capitals) also had three points each for Team Foligno. Rotoworld.com

    • Jaroslav Halak stops 6-10 in third period
      Jaroslav Halak stopped six of 10 shots for Team Toews in the third period of Sunday's All-Star game. Team Toews won the battle, 17-12.

      Advice: Of note, Halak helped prevent Ryan Johansen, Patrick Kane, and Steven Stamkos from each recording a hat trick. So there's that. Halak's Islanders meanwhile lead the Metropolitan division with 63 points, and trail eastern conference leading Tampa Bay by just one point. Much due to Halak's career season, he's 25-9-0 with 82 goals against through 34 games. Rotoworld.com

    • Price stops 12-16 as Team Foligno's starter
      Carey Price turned away 12 of 16 shots as Team Foligno's starter during Sunday's All-Star Game.

      Advice: Price put forth a quality effort, but the passing ultimately beat him as Team Foligno caught him looking the wrong way more than once. Undeterred, he tried multiple Hasekian-type saves. Through 36 regular season games, Price is 24-10-2 with 77 goals against. Montreal meanwhile sits third in the Atlantic with 61 points, just three back of conference-leading Tampa Bay. Rotoworld.com

    • Luongo stops 13-17 as Team Toews' starter
      Roberto Luongo turned away 13 of 17 shots as Team Toews' starter during the Sunday's All-Star Game.

      Advice: There weren't many creampuff goalies either, best exemplified by his fantastic glove save on Bobby Ryan's breakway. Through 36 regular season games, Bobby Lu is 17-10-8 with 80 goals against as Florida sits seven points behind both Boston and Washington for the Wild Card. It's worth noting that Florida has two games in hand on Washington and four on Boston. Rotoworld.com

      The Montreal Canadiens have recalled Christian Thomas from the Hamilton Bulldogs of the AHL.

      Advice: The Habs sent Thomas down after their last game before the break, and now that the break is about to end, they will need his services again. The 22-year-old has no points in three games for Montreal this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Toews skates with Voracek and Nash at ASG
      Jonathan Toews will skate on his team's first line with Flyers' forward Jakub Voracek and Rangers' forward Rick Nash in Sunday's All-Star game.

      Advice: Ryan Getzlaf will center Tyler Seguin and Vladimir Tarasenko on Team Toews' second line. The third line is made up of Patrice Bergeron, Patrik Elias and John Tavares. The fourth line will see a rotating center play with Filip Forsberg and Johnny Gaudreau. Rotoworld.com

    • Travis Morin injured & will miss AHL ASG
      Travis Morin will miss the AHL's All-Star game because of a lower body injury.

      Advice: Texas Stars' coach Derek Laxdal confirmed the news. Morin suffered the injury during Friday's game but he played through it on Saturday. Morin has missed the AHL All-Star game twice. First because of a call-up with Dallas, and now because of the injury. The 31-year-old has no points in five games in the NHL this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Aaron Ekblad is youngest D in ASG history
      Aaron Ekblad is the youngest defenseman to ever suit up in the NHL All-Star game.

      Advice: Ekblad will only turn 19 on February 7th. The first overall pick in last year's NHL entry draft has had an incredible rookie season for the Panthers. Ekblad has six goals, 25 points and a plus-7 rating while averaging over 22:00 minutes per game for Florida. He will definitely be in the Calder trophy (top rookie) conversation at the end of the season. Rotoworld.com

    • Patrik Nemeth (arm) may return in March
      Patrik Nemeth (arm) may be able to return sometime in March.

      Advice: Nemeth has missed most of the season because he suffered an arm laceration on October 18th. The 22-year-old hasn't registered a point in eight career NHL games, so his fantasy value will be non-existent if he does return. The 22-year-old was Dallas' second round pick in 2010. Nemeth's return would definitely be a feel-good story. Rotoworld.com

    • Brett Ritchie (UBI) may play on Tuesday
      Brett Ritchie (upper body) may return to Dallas' lineup on Tuesday.

      Advice: The rookie has been out for three games because of the injury. The 21-year-old was Dallas' second round pick in 2011. He has three goals and one assist in eight games this season. The Stars placed Ritchie on injured reserve on January 17th. Rotoworld.com

    • Patrick Kane excited about World Cup return
      Patrick Kane is excited about the return of the World Cup of Hockey.

      Advice: The NHL made the announcement on Saturday afternoon. The event will start next fall, and will be held in Toronto. "Watching guys Mike Modano, Chris Chelios, Brian Leetch [and] Mike Richter win that World Cup was pretty amazing," Kane said on Saturday afternoon. "Hopefully I get the chance to represent the United States, and I think the tournament itself will be very competitive. I think we all have a lot of pride in playing for our country and being able to be part of something as special as this, especially in a hockey hotbed like Toronto, I think it’ll all come together and be a great tournament."

    • Tom Sestito thinks he be back in NHL
      Tom Sestito thinks that he will be back in the NHL next season.

      Advice: Sestito led the NHL in penalty minutes with 213 last season but with fighting down, the Canucks rarely used the 27-year-old and put him on waivers three weeks ago. He was sent to Utica of the AHL when he passed through waivers as he had an assist and seven penalty minutes in three NHL games this season. "It’s changing but I’m not worried about it too much right now," Sestito said. "It’s pretty tough to get picked up off waivers because clubs have cap issues with roster spots and contracts. I’m pretty confident and I’ll be up in the NHL somewhere next year. I showed I can play and I’ve just got to get more confidence down here and there will be an NHL team that will want me — maybe by the (trade) deadline or maybe next year. I believe that. I’m sure I’ll be back." Rotoworld.com

    • Giroux thinks Flyers should be in playoffs
      Claude Giroux thinks the Philadelphia Flyers should be in the playoffs.

      Advice: Giroux thinks there is plenty of talent on this year's edition of the team and can't believe the Flyers are 12 points out of a playoff spot. "I'm not the only one frustrated. I think everyone in the room is frustrated," Giroux said. "Instead of me going in and yelling at everybody, I think it's important we stick together and we do this together. We can't be blaming and pointing fingers. I think it's important we stick together, and if we do this, we're going to get out of this hole." Jakob Voracek and Giroux are first and tied for third respectively in the race for the Art Ross Trophy, so it is a bit surprising the Flyers are so far back with that scoring duo. Rotoworld.com

    • Steve Mason close to returning to action
      Steve Mason (knee) is close to returning to action according to the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News.

      Advice: Mason was injured on January 10 and was expected to miss a couple of weeks, so he is right on schedule. It's unknown if he will be in the lineup on Tuesday but if not, he should play against either the Jets on Thursday or Maple Leafs Saturday. Mason is 8-12-6 with a 2.46 GAA and a .920 save percentage. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    • Flyers expected to recall Ryan White
      Look for the Philadelphia Flyers to recall Ryan White before Tuesday's game against Arizona.

      Advice: The Flyers will need to recall a forward with Zac Rinaldo being suspended for six games before the All-Star break and it looks like it will be the former Hab. White has not played in the NHL this season as he underwent surgery to repair a torn pectoralis muscle injury suffered in the off-season. He has a goal and three points in 11 AHL games thus far but his limited fantasy value will be in penalty minutes in traditional pools. Rotoworld.com

    • Kyle Okposo hot of late for the Islanders
      Kyle Okposo has six goals and 12 points in his last nine games.

      Advice: Of course a four goal game won't hurt that stat as Okposo managed to do on January 16. Okposo has been hot, along with linemate John Tavares, who has six goals and 13 points in the same nine games. Okposo has 14 goals and 44 points in 46 games which ranks him tied for 13th in NHL scoring, along with Phil Kessel and Henrik Zetterberg. Rotoworld.com

    • Sergei Bobrovsky out at least a month
      Michael Arace of the Columbus Dispatch reports that Sergei Bobrovsky will miss at least a month of action with a groin injury.

      Advice: Bobrovsky was all set to play in net in the All-Star game which is being played in Columbus, so that was a big blow as well. He had flown in his father from Siberia to watch the All-Star festivities, only to pick up the injury to the right side of his groin. "It is sad, really sad," Bobrovsky said with a wilting voice. "I wanted to play in front of my fans, with my teammates (Ryan Johansen and Foligno). It’s the first time (as an) All-Star for me. It was the first time for my city. It was so special, and I am so disappointed right now." Rotoworld.com
