  • Tyler Johnson getting back on track
    Tyler Johnson appears to be getting his groove back.

    Advice: "I feel good. I still think there is room for improvement, but I feel my body is feeling as good as it has all season," Johnson said. "I'm starting to get into the groove and starting to be able to play." He has looked more like his speedy self in two games following the All-Star break and he has collected two goals and two assists over those matches. 40 minutes ago
  • Ryan McDonagh out Monday with a concussion
    Ryan McDonagh won't play Monday night because of a concussion.

  • Erik Karlsson does fine with less minutes
    Erik Karlsson logged just 24:30 of ice time in Saturday's win over Toronto.

    Advice: That is lowest amount of action he has played since Oct. 14 when he logged 22:37 against Columbus. Karlsson registered four-point performances in both of those contests. It just goes to show that the offensive blueliner can thrive regardless of his playing time. He has amassed 59 points in 53 games this season, which ties him for second in NHL in scoring. Today, 7:40 am
  • Brayden McNabb playing big minutes for LAK
    Brayden McNabb is playing important minutes for the Los Angeles Kings this season.

    Advice: McNabb was acquired from the Buffalo Sabres in 2014, and he's been a pleasant surprise for his new team. He's been a steady defense partner for superstar Drew Doughty. "It’s a challenge at times because you know you’re out there against the top players all the time," McNabb said. "You can’t take a shift off. You have to try to raise your game to his level. [Doughty] doesn’t take that many chances that leave us stranded. Everyone thinks he’s an offensive player but he’s defensive-minded, too." McNabb has two goals and seven points while averaging 20:21 of ice time per game. Today, 7:24 am
  • Andre Burakovsky has six goals in five games
    Andre Burakovsky has scored six goals in his last five contests.

    Advice: The 20-year-old has had a hard time producing at the NHL level, but he's really found his game during the last stretch. He also has 13 points in his last 10 contests. Staying consistent may be an issue, but it may be time for fantasy GMs to pick him up in standard leagues. Today, 7:17 am
  • EDM embarrassed by 8-1 loss to Isles
    Sunday's 8-1 loss to the New York Islanders was embarrassing for the Edmonton Oilers.

    Advice: "It wasn't easy, that’s for sure," said winger Benoit Pouliot. "They got those quick goals back to back and we looked down a little bit and kind of went on a free fall. It sucks, it's tough allowing so many goals like that." The Oilers had a players-only meeting after an ugly weekend that also saw them get blown out by Montreal on Saturday. Today, 7:07 am
  • Sidney Crosby is riding 10-game point streak
    Sidney Crosby is riding a 10-game point streak.

    Advice: The 28-year-old has recorded 18 points during that span. He has a four-point effort and a three-point effort in two of his last three contests. Crosby has also scored a goal in six consecutive contests. He has 22 goals and 49 points in 50 games this season. His early season slump is way behind him. Today, 7:01 am
  • Kris Letang is red-hot under Mike Sullivan
    Kris Letang's production has spiked since Mike Sullivan took over as the Penguins coach.

    Advice: Letang has an incredible eight goals and 25 points in 16 games since Sullivan replaced Mike Johnston in December. The 28-year-old has nine goals and 38 points in 41 games this season. He's worth owning in all fantasy formats. "He's put in a stretch of work here for our team that's really allowed us to climb back in this playoff race," Sullivan said of Letang. Today, 6:57 am
  • David Perron returns to Pittsburgh on Monday
    David Perron will make his first return to Pittsburgh since being traded to the Anaheim Ducks earlier this season.

    Advice: Perron never really found his footing in Pittsburgh and it ended up with him being shipped to Anaheim after playing 86 games with the Pens. The 27-year-old has really been playing well since joining the Ducks. He has three goals and eight points in seven games with Anaheim. "I think the [Western Conference] is obviously a more grinding type of game," Perron said. "I’m not the biggest guy but I think that fits my style. I’m not always on the go or something like that or always wanting to get a break or something like that. Yeah, it’s nice if you get two-on-ones and stuff like that but I think I like to cycle the puck in the [offensive] zone." Today, 6:50 am
  • Pavel Datsyuk earns two assists vs. Islanders
    Pavel Datsyuk registered two assists in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Islanders.

    Advice: He skated alongside Henrik Zetterberg and Justin Abdelkader for most of the match, but his assists came on goals by defensemen Kyle Quincey and Mike Green (power play). Datsyuk had one helper over his previous five outings. Today, 6:49 am
  • Eric Staal has two points in last 10 games
    Eric Staal has just two points in his last 10 contests.

    Advice: Hurricanes captain is definitely slumping right now and you have to wonder if the trade rumors are affecting him. The 31-year-old is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent at season's end. He has nine goals and 30 points in 54 points this season. Today, 6:32 am
  • Johnny Boychuk scores on Sunday
    Johnny Boychuk scored in Sunday's blowout win over the Edmonton Oilers.

    Advice: Boychuk got the party started, as he opened the scoring with a slap shot from the point. This was the 32-year-old's second game back from injury after he missed 11 games because of an upper-body injury. He has four goals and 15 points in 40 games in 2015-16. The Islanders defense is much better with him than without him. Today, 6:11 am
  • Jakub Nakladal still hasn't played an NHL gm
    Jakub Nakladal still hasn't suited up in an NHL game.

    Advice: Nakladal was recalled from the minors for the second time this season after Dennis Wideman received a 20-game suspension for hitting linesman Don Henderson. The Flames signed the 28-year-old as a free-agent last May. This is his first season in North America after spending years in the Czech League, the Finnish League and the KHL. Today, 5:50 am
  • Rick Nash won't play vs. NJ on Monday
    It doesn't look like Rick Nash (lower body) will play in Monday's game against the New Jersey Devils.

    Advice: He'll probably miss his sixth straight game. The 31-year-old has 12 goals and 33 points in 45 games this season. Consider him day-to-day at this point. Today, 5:37 am
  • Kyle Chipchura doesn't practice on Sunday
    Kyle Chipchura didn't take part in Arizona's practice on Sunday.

    Advice: Coach Dave Tippett confirmed that the veteran forward just took a personal day off and isn't injured. The 29-year-old has four goals and 10 points in 51 games this season. Today, 5:31 am
  • Coyotes send Steve Downie to minors
    The Arizona Coyotes have assigned Steve Downie to the AHL.

    Advice: The 28-year-old has three goals and six points in 26 games this season. He averages just nine minutes of ice time per game. The Coyotes may opt to recall a center because of the injury to Boyd Gordon. Today, 5:29 am
    Not Active
  • Boyd Gordon (UBI) is out 'week-to-week'
    Boyd Gordon (upper body) will be out week-to-week according to head coach Dave Tippett.

    Advice: Gordon was injured in Thursday's game against the Chicago Blackhawks and he didn't suit up in Friday's tilt. The 32-year-old forward doesn't contribute much offensively, but he has the best faceoff winning percentage on the team and he also leads all forward in shorthanded ice-time per game (2:45).
