    • Tyler Seguin leads NHL with 39 points
      Tyler Seguin picked up an assist in Friday night's 2-1 win in Calgary, giving him 39 points on the season, the most in the NHL.

      Advice: Seguin is having a career-year, which is saying something because he's coming off one in 2013-14. Last season he had 37 goals and 47 assists for 84 points in 80 games. Through 30 games he already has 23 goals (leads NHL) and 16 assists for 39 points. At this rate he'll easily eclipse both his goal and point totals from last year. Rotoworld.com

      Steven Stamkos scored a goal in Tampa Bay's 3-2 shootout loss to New Jersey on Friday night.

      Advice: It was the sniper's second goal in as many games and 19th on the year overall. Stamkos has 36 points in 24 games and has been as expected for a number one draft choice. Nikita Kucherov scored the other goal for the Lightning who couldn't solve the Devils' rookie netminder in the shootout. Rotoworld.com

    • Cleary, Lashoff, Kindl all to sit vs. Isles
      Daniel Cleary, Brian Lashoff, and Jakub Kindl will all be healthy scratches Friday night on Long Island.

      Advice: Even with regular playing time, it'd be hard to argue that any of these three players have any fantasy value. And now with inconsistent playing time, there's certainly none. Rotoworld.com

    • Montreal promotes Sven Andrighetto
      Sven Andrighetto has been summoned by the Montreal Canadiens.

      Advice: The Canadiens need another forward after Max Pacioretty suffered an upper-body injury during Thursday's game. Andrighetto has excelled in the minors with nine goals and 18 points in 21 contests, but he's not expected to get Pacioretty's spot on a line with Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher. That role will probably go to Michael Bournival instead. Rotoworld.com

    • Matt Cooke projected to return on Saturday
      Matt Cooke (hip) may be back in the lineup on Saturday.

      Advice: His second practice in seven and a half weeks will take place on Friday, but coach Mike Yeo doesn't see that as much of a problem. "In a perfect world, we'd probably have a little bit more time and a little bit more practice," said Minnesota's bench boss. "But it's not like he hasn't been skating. He's been skating for a long time. At some point, we've got to throw him right into the fire and work out some of the kinks." Cooke hasn't played since Oct. 28 because of a hip flexor problem.

    • Nikita Kucherov has been much more confident
      Nikita Kucherov's better understanding of the English language has contributed to his successful 2014-15 campaign.

      Advice: "Now that Kucherov knows the language, he's completely different," coach Jon Cooper said. "He's effective on the ice, off the ice. He's a much more confident kid because he knows the language. It does have a big part of how the kids act." He's still relatively quiet, but he is communicating better with his coaches and teammates. Kucherov has been superb on a line with Tyler Johnson and Ondrej Palat this campaign. He has already surpassed his offensive totals from his rookie season by recording 12 goals and 29 points just 33 games into the 2014-15 campaign. Rotoworld.com

Carter now leads the team in assists with 16 and points with 24 in 33 games this season. He has yet to have a five-point game. Rotoworld.com
