    • 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

    • Jeff Petry has been on the block for months
      Apparently, Edmonton Oilers' GM Craig MacTavish has been trying to trade defenseman Jeff Petry "for months".

      Advice: The fifth year and right handed 27 year old defender is working his way through a one year $3.075M contract, and has compiled 12 goals and 69 points while averaging over 21 minutes per game through 282 career games. This is certainly good news for Oscar Klefbom's future, but it's unclear what the Oilers could get in return a Petry. Rotoworld.com

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

    • No word yet about possible postponement Tues
      Up to two feet of snow is expected to hit the New York City and Long Island area starting on Monday morning, but there's still no word if the Islanders will take on the Rangers Tuesday evening.

      Advice: While those involved in the actual traveling won't appreciate the "wait and see approach", it makes sense to first see how the five boroughs and two counties respond to the downfall. At the earliest, we'll know Monday afternoon. The Islanders lead the Metropolitan with 63 points, three more ahead of Pittsburgh, and five ahead of the Rangers, who currently own the third slot in the Metro. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Weber and Suter used to be teammates with the Nashville Predators.

      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

    • Yotes' GM thinks Ekman-Larsson could be elite
      Arizona Coyotes' General Manager Don Maloney believes Oliver Ekman-Larsson could be one of the best players in the entire NHL.

      Advice: "You can see he's not only a star now but he has a chance to be one of the best players in the NHL for a long time," said Maloney. That is some high praise from Arizona's GM. The 23-year-old had a strong year in 2013-14, scoring 44 points in 80 games, but 2014-15 hasn't gone as well for him. Ekman-Larsson is on pace to score 37 points but he has a plus/minus rating of minus-15 through 46 games. The low rating has more to do with the team surrounding him. Ekman-Larsson does have immense potential. Rotoworld.com

    • Travis Morin injured & will miss AHL ASG

      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

    • Jason Pominville excited to play outdoor game
      Jason Pominville is looking forward to playing in an outdoor game in 2016.

      Advice: The NHL announced that the Wild will host the Chicago Blackhawks in a Stadium Series game on February 21, 2016. "I'm really pumped to have the chance to play in another outdoor game," Pominville said. "What a great experience it is for all the players and their families and all the fans that will have a chance to attend or watch on TV. It's great that the State of Hockey finally will be hosting one." 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

    • Valeri Nichushkin could return in March
      The Dallas Stars are hoping Valeri Nichushkin (hip) will be able to return sometime in March.

      Advice: The 19-year-old had a solid rookie campaign last year, registering 14 goals, 34 points and a plus-20 rating in 79 games. This year, he's been limited to just four games. Nichushkin has enormous potential, and the Stars will be cautious with bringing him back too early. It may be wise to shut him down for the season if the Stars are out of the playoff picture in March. 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

    • Erik Cole could be out for weeks
      Erik Cole (upper body) probably won't be able to return to Dallas' lineup immediately after the All-Star break ends.

      Advice: No update has been given in Cole's case, but it is possible that the Stars' forward will be out for weeks. Cole suffered the injury after he crashed into the boards on Tuesday night against Boston. The 36-year-old has 12 goals and 23 points in 44 games. If the Stars are out of the playoff picture before the March 2nd trade deadline, it is entirely possible that they would move Cole. 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

    • Patrice Bergeron soaking in All-Star weekend
      Patrice Bergeron said he just wants to soak in everything about All-Star weekend.

      Advice: Amazingly enough, this is the 11-year veteran's first All-Star game appearance. "It’s exactly what I’m trying to do. It’s my first experience, so I’m just trying to have fun and enjoy it," said Bergeron. "I want to soak everything in, and go along with it. But you also want to relax at the same time, and find some time for that. I’m really looking forward to the next couple of days, take it with a grain of salt and have some fun." Rotoworld.com

    • 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

    • 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
