Player Notes

  • Markus Granlund sits out practice with flu
    Markus Granlund missed practice on Saturday due to the flu.

    Advice: The forward has to be considered questionable to play Sunday against Nashville but it will be a game time decision. He has six goals and 16 points in 42 games with a minus-three rating but is on a three game scoring streak with a goal and two assists.

  • Zach Sill returns to the lineup
    Zach Sill (undisclosed) returned to action on Saturday.

    Advice: Sill was held off the scoresheet on Saturday. His feisty play has been a boon to the Maple Leafs and he could receive a contract extension from Toronto at the end of the season as they need players like him.

    Brian Flynn (upper body) returned to action on Saturday.

    Advice: Flynn missed 12 days with the injury. He played 14:45 on Saturday and was a plus-one. The winger has five goals and 17 points this. He was traded from Buffalo at the deadline but is only a depth player at this stage of his career.

  • Seguin tallies two points as Stars win in OT
    Tyler Seguin recorded a goal and an assist as the Stars edged the Canucks on Saturday night 4-3 in overtime.

    Advice: Seguin also had six shots on goal and a minor penalty in 20:40.

    Eric Staal notched a goal for the Hurricanes in their 3-1 win over the Devils on Saturday night.

    Advice: Staal’s 21st goal of the season came nine seconds into the third period. It was effectively the game winner, too. Even with points in three games in a row (five points total), Staal has had an underwhelming season with only 48 points on the year. Chris Terry and Justin Faulk picked up the other goals.

    Advice: Crosby's 25th goal of the season was the game-winner, and with two assists, he has the NHL points lead with 78. Evgeni Malkin had two assists in his return and Steve Downie had a big showing in his own right on Saturday.

  • Ryan Carter to play Saturday v Kings
    Ryan Carter will be back in the Minnesota lineup against Los Angeles Saturday night.

    Advice: He has been out for 22 games with a shoulder injury but is ready to go. Despite the fact this will help the Wild, Carter has no fantasy value.
    Yesterday, 10:40 am
  • Oshie sick and misses practice but will play
    T.J. Oshie missed Saturday morning's practice due to illness but he is expected to play Saturday night against Columbus.

  • Mikhail Grabovski not close to returning
    Coach Jack Capuano said that Mikhail Grabovski is not close to returning from a concussion.

    Injured Reserve
  • Brian Boyle could get 1st PP playing time
    Don't be surprised if you see 6'7" Brian Boyle on the ice in front of the opposition's net during the Lightning power play.

    Advice: That's exactly where he practised Friday afternoon. In fact, Boyle was a regular participant on Tampa's first unit during Friday's scrimmages. Bolts' coach Jon Cooper wants more traffic in front of the opposition's net and what better way to accomplish that by putting the giant Boyle in the face of the other team's goalie. Boyle could get some deflection or rebound points in this position so consider picking him up if you need a short-term scoring boost.
    Yesterday, 6:23 am
  • Matt Hendricks (back) misses Dallas game
    Matt Hendricks sat out Friday's game against Dallas with back woes.

    Advice: The forward is considered questionable for Sunday's match with Colorado. He has eight goals and 16 points with 76 penalty minutes this season. Just an FYI in case he is in your lineup.
    Yesterday, 5:27 am
  • Boyd Gordon could be back on Sunday
    Boyd Gordon (back) could be ready to go on Sunday.

    Advice: Gordon has been out since Tuesday as he missed practice that day. The bottom six forward has only six goals and 13 points in 68 games this season. He has little fantasy value.
