Player Notes

  • Wagner gets only goal in Ducks loss
    Chris Wagner scored a tying goal at the 17:49 minute mark of the second period, but it was not enough in the 2-1 overtime loss of the Anaheim Ducks to the San Jose Sharks.

    Advice: Wagner’s goal was the second of the season. Notably he was assisted by Clayton Stoner and Antoine Vermette who recorded their second assists of the year. Wagner had one goal, five shots on goal, and a block to make him one of the top fantasy players of the game. Yesterday, 11:43 pm
  • Mark Scheifele scores fourth goal in loss
    Mark Scheifele scored his fourth goal of the season in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Dallas Stars.

    Advice: Scheifele cut the Jets' deficit to 3-2 with 10 seconds remaining in regulation, but it was too little too late at that point. The young forward is off to a hot start, as he has seven points in six games this season. He's one of the better young players in the league and needs to be in starting lineups whenever Winnipeg is in action. Joel Armia also scored for the Jets. Yesterday, 9:43 pm
  • Tyler Seguin scores GWG vs. Winnipeg
    Tyler Seguin scored the game-winning goal in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Winnipeg Jets.

    Advice: With the Stars ahead 2-1 in the third period, Seguin beat Jets goalie Michael Hutchinson with an accurate wrist shot from a difficult angle. He finished the game with a plus-1 rating, four shots on goal and three hits in 19:12 of ice time. He also won 56 percent of his faceoffs. Seguin has three goals and three assists in his first six games of the season. Brett Ritchie and Patrick Eaves also scored for the Stars. Yesterday, 9:40 pm
  • Getzlaf leaves Tuesday's game with UBI
    Ryan Getzlaf left Tuesday's match against San Jose late in the second period with an upper-body injury and his return is questionable.

    Advice: Getzlaf was the second Ducks player to sustain an injury Tuesday night after starting goaltender Jonathan Bernier left at the end of the first with an upper-body injury. Yesterday, 9:35 pm
  • Auston Matthews has two points in loss to TB
    Auston Matthews scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 7-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

    Advice: The Leafs did themselves no favors by going down 4-0. They managed to cut the deficit to 5-3 in the third period, but that's as close as they would come to tying the game. Matthews has looked fantastic in his first few games as an NHLer. The 19-year-old already has six goals and 10 points in six games. He's clearly the favorite to win the Calder Trophy (rookie of the year) and he needs to be owned in all fantasy formats. Yesterday, 9:13 pm
  • Steven Stamkos has 4 points in win over TOR
    Steven Stamkos scored two goals and added two assists in Tuesday's 7-3 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.

    Advice: The Bolts were talking about improving their effort in the beginning of games and they responded in a big way. Stamkos scored both of his goals in the first period. He also picked up primary assists on goals by Victor Hedman and Nikita Kucherov in the second and third periods respectively. Stamkos finished the game with a plus-4 rating, three shots on goal and two hits in 16:14 of ice time. The Lightning captain has five goals and four assists in six games in 2016-17. He continues to be one of the elite point producers in the NHL. Yesterday, 9:08 pm
  • Jordan Staal scores in loss to Wings
    Jordan Staal found the back of the net on Tuesday night.

    Advice: Unfortunately for Carolina, they still dropped a 4-2 decision to the Red Wings. Staal got the 'Canes on the board at the 6:43 mark of the second period and cut the Wings lead to 3-1 in the process. Staal has three goals in six games this season. Victor Rask also scored for Carolina. Yesterday, 8:47 pm
  • Dylan Larkin scores two goals in win
    Dylan Larkin scored a pair of goals in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes.

    Advice: Detroit has now won five games in a row. Larkin did all of his damage in the first period, as his goals gave the Wings a 2-0 and 3-0 lead in the opening frame. He finished the game with a plus-2 rating, two shots on goal and a hit in 14:45 of ice time. The goals were the first two of Larkin's season and they put an end to his five-game pointless drought. Thomas Vanek and Andreas Athanasiou also found the back of the net for the Wings. Yesterday, 8:44 pm
  • Brayden Schenn has two points in SO win
    Brayden Schenn picked up a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout win over the Buffalo Sabres.

    Advice: The Flyers were down 3-0 in the third period, but managed to score three goals in the final 15:30 to force overtime. Schenn cut the Sabres lead to 3-1 and his primary assist Mark Streit's goal tied the game. Schenn had no points in his first three games of the season, so tonight's production will be welcomed by fantasy owners. Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek scored in the shootout. Yesterday, 8:16 pm
  • Joel Eriksson Ek has three assists in win
    Joel Eriksson Ek registered three assists in Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Boston Bruins.

    Advice: The 19-year-old helped set up goals by Chris Stewart, Jason Zucker and Jason Pominville. Eriksson Ek made his NHL debut last Saturday and has been surprisingly productive since then. He scored in his first game and now has four points in three games. The 2015 first-round pick is averaging just over 10 minutes of ice time per game. The only way he'll keep producing is if the Wild give him more playing time. Yesterday, 7:16 pm
  • Sidney Crosby scores in regular season debut
    Sidney Crosby found the back of the net in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Florida Panthers.

    Advice: After missing the first six games of the season because of a concussion, Crosby returned and contributed in Pittsburgh's win. With the Pens trailing 2-0 in the second period, Crosby got the Penguins on the board on the man-advantage. He finished the game with four shots on goal and two hits in 18:02 of ice time. Carl Hagelin and Eric Fehr also scored for the Penguins in this one. Yesterday, 6:33 pm
  • Freddie Hamilton scratched vs. Blues

    Tom Pyatt is projected to play with Kyle Turris and Mike Hoffman on Tuesday night.

    Advice: "I think Tom Pyatt has been really good for us on both sides of the ice and he's got some speed and some drive to play with Turris and Hoffman," said coach Guy Boucher. Pyatt has two goals and one assist in five games this year. Yesterday, 7:58 am
  • Hynes: Speers assignment good for development
    Devils coach John Hynes feels sending Blake Speers back to the OHL was best for his development.

    Advice: Speers had no points in three games with the Devils. "Blake really made a statement for himself from rookie camp to training camp and even in the first couple of games," Hynes said. "He showed he can play at this pace, he’s very smart, good instincts, knows how to play without the puck very very well. So therefore as a young player you get opportunities. I just think over the course of, now that the regular season has started, we wanted to give him a look, whether that was in practice or in some games, to see when the level does get turned up from preseason, would he be able to be effective offensively and we just think it’s probably best for his development to go back. He’s not going to lose the attention to detail that he plays with and the instincts but it is good for him to go back to juniors. He’s going to be a leader on his team, be able to play the right way." He'll be someone to keep an eye on during training camp next year. Yesterday, 5:56 am

  • Sean Monahan scores third goal of the season

    Advice: It's been a tough start to the season for Calgary's top center, who still sits without any assists through seven games thus far. Still, the name of the game is goal scoring, so there shouldn't be too much concern... yet. Monday, 9:11 pm
