      Aaron Ekblad collected four assists at the NHL All-Star Game on Sunday.

    • Toronto calls up Petter Granberg
      Petter Granberg has been called up by the Toronto Maple Leafs.

      Advice: There will be a lot of players called up on Monday as teams intentionally thinned their rosters over the All-Star break and will call up reinforcements now that practices are set to resume. That being said, Granberg is a bit of a different case as he hasn't played in the NHL yet this season. The 22-year-old defenseman has seven points and 18 penalty minutes in 28 AHL games this season.

    • 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

    • 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

    • 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
