    • P.K. Subban posts three points vs. Jackets
      P.K. Subban earned a goal and two assists in Thursday's 5-2 win over Columbus.

      Advice: He posted a plus-5 rating and a logged a game-high 26:01 of ice time in the contest. Subban opened the scoring in the game just 1:49 into the first period with his 12th goal of the season. He now has 47 points in 61 games. Rotoworld.com

    • Danny DeKeyser records two assists v. Sharks
      Danny DeKeyser contributed two assists in Detroit's 3-2 win over San Jose.

      Advice: He had the secondary helpers on third-period goals by Pavel Datsyuk and Luke Glendening. DeKeyser entered the match with two assists in his previous 13 outings. He hasn't scored a goal since Dec. 23 and has 23 points in 58 games. Needless to say, DeKeyser shouldn't be on your roster if you are looking for offense. Rotoworld.com

    • Nolan says Mark Pysyk belongs in the NHL
      Mark Pysyk has contributed a goal and an assist in his past two games.

      Advice: Pysyk has spent the majority of the season in the AHL, which coach Ted Nolan has not been happy about. "I know where he should be, but in the process we're going through here, it's out of our control," said the Buffalo bench boss. He played four games with the Sabres in December before returning to the minors until his call up last weekend. Pysyk may head back down again when Tyson Strachan is over his infection and the team decides to play Nikita Zadorov. That probably won't sit well with Nolan. Rotoworld.com

    • Boston puts Kevan Miller on LTIR
      Kevan Miller (shoulder) has been placed on long-term injured reserve.

      Advice: He isn't expected to play again this season because of an injured shoulder that requires surgery to repair. Miller has played 41 games for the Bruins this season. Boston could be looking for a defenseman and some help up front before the trade deadline on Monday. Rotoworld.com

    • Matt Irwin scores sixth goal in loss to Wings
      Matt Irwin scored his sixth goal of the season on Thursday night to kick of the scoring, but the Sharks would fall to the Red Wings 3-2.

      Advice: It was a pretty sequence as Scott Hannan dished to Joe Thornton, who found Matt Irwin atop the central point. Irwin sent the puck through a maze of traffic and past Jimmy Howard for the early 1-0 lead. He now has six goals and 12 points, one goal shy of setting a new career single-season high. Rotoworld.com

    • Dan Hamhuis nabs two assists vs. Sabres
      Dan Hamhuis provided two assists for the Canucks on Thursday night, but Vancouver came up well short in a 6-3 loss to Buffalo.

      Advice: The veteran blueliner now has 14 assists through 39 games this season, a minus-five rating and 25 penalty minutes. Unfortunately, his shutdown capabilities don't translate well into fantasy value, so the 32-year-old is best left alone in leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Chris Butler tags in for Ian Cole vs. Jets
      Chris Butler will tag in for Ian Cole on Thursday night against the Winnipeg Jets.

      Advice: Barret Jackman will join Butler to create St. Louis' third defensive unit. Jackman actually has the better fantasy value with 43 PIMs 70 hits, and 92 blocks through 60 games this season. Rotoworld.com

      Tim Erixon will play in his seventh game as a Chicago Blackhawk on Thursday night against the Florida Panthers.

    • Reese, Crombeen scratched vs Rangers on Thurs
      Dylan Reese and BJ Crombeen will be scratched against the New York Rangers on Thursday night.

      Advice: Neither player has much of any fantasy value. Crombeen has played in just 10 of his 39 games this season since the calendar turned to 2015, and Reese has just four NHL games since 2011-12. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 3:46 pm
    • Zadorov, Strachan scratched vs. Canucks
      Nikita Zadorov and Tyson Strachan will be scratched on Thursday night against the Vancouver Canucks.

      Advice: Coach Nolan continues to send a message as this will be the 20 year old Zadorov's fourth consecutive game in the stands. He's having a nice rookie campaign with 100 hits and 13 points through 42 games. Rotoworld.com

    • Dustin Byfuglien moves back to defense
      Dustin Byfuglien is projected to move back to defense Thursday versus the Blues.

      Advice: "The depth of their forward unit, they're so dangerous with all three lines, having Dustin back on the blueline gives us a litte bit more depth," coach Paul Maurice said. "We think it makes us more evenly spread out, front and back." Eric O'Dell is slated to make his season debut and newly-acquired winger Jiri Tlusty will play his first game with the Jets.

    • Ryan Ellis not on IR, may play Thursday
      Ryan Ellis (lower body) could be back in the lineup as soon as Thursday night.

      Advice: He has been skating with the team for several days and was paired with Seth Jones on Wednesday. Ellis isn't listed on injured reserve anymore so unless there's a setback prior to game time, he appears to be back after missing 21 games with a lower-body injury. Rotoworld.com

    • Seth Jones moves to the left side
      Seth Jones switched to the left side during Wednesday's practice and was paired with Ryan Ellis, who is poised to return from a lower-body injury.

      Advice: "It was a little confusing at first because I've been playing right all year, so there were a couple times I felt myself drifting toward the right and (Ellis) was like, 'Where ya' going?' " Jones said. "But we'll be fine in the game. I just have to get used to it a little bit." Jones skated on the left during the early part of the 2013-14 season. Rotoworld.com

    • Victor Hedman OK after leaving practice early
      Victor Hedman left practice early Thursday as a precaution and he's expected to play Friday.

      Advice: He began the season red hot but injuries have slowed his production. Hedman has contributed an assist in three of his last four outings, so perhaps he's getting back on track. He has 28 points in 42 games this year. Rotoworld.com

    • Kyle Quincey can hold off on ankle surgery
      Kyle Quincey (bone chips, ankle) has been advised that he can put off surgery until after the season.

      Advice: He received the news after visiting with a specialist. Quincey has missed the last three games, but GM Ken Holland said the defenseman can resume practicing once he's ready. It's unclear when that will be at this time, though. Rotoworld.com

    • Drew Doughty's ice time should decrease
      With Andrej Sekera acquired, look for Drew Doughty's playing time to go down.

      Advice: Doughty has been averaging an unreal 29:27 minutes per contest in 2014-15 due in part to the fact that Slava Voynov has been serving an indefinite suspension. Sekera gives the Hurricanes a blueliner that can be trusted with over 20 minutes per game and consequently take a little bit of the pressure off of Doughty. Rotoworld.com

    • Jeff Petry might net Oilers a first rounder
      Edmonton might be able to get a first-round pick in return for defenseman Jeff Petry.

      Advice: After all, Los Angeles surrendered a first rounder to acquire Andrej Sekera from Carolina on Wednesday. Montreal, Anaheim, and perhaps Detroit are among the teams that might make a hard push for Petry, who is eligible to become a free agent this summer. Rotoworld.com
