Player Notes

  • Jakob Silfverberg's helps Ducks to clinch
    Jakob Silfverberg picked up three assists in Anaheim's 5-1 blowout of Edmonton on Wednesday.

    Advice: Silverberg snapped a six-game pointless streak with the three night helper. The 24 year-old has 12 goals and 26 assists for 38 points in 78 games for the Ducks this season. Andrew Cogliano and Francois Beauchemin each added a goal and an assist while Corey Perry picked up his team leading 33rd goal of the year in the Ducks blowout win.

  • Leafs' Phil Kessel comes up with more assists
    After assisting on three goals in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over Ottawa, Maple Leafs winger Phil Kessel came up with two assists in Wednesday night's 4-3 loss to the Sabres in Buffalo.

    Advice: That gives Kessel 35 assists on the season. Tyler Bozak also had two assists for the Leafs in the loss, giving him 25 for the season. Toronto's goal scorers were Eric Brewer (third), James van Riemsdyk (25th) and Nazem Kadri (18th). The Leafs blew a 3-1 lead in this one.

  • Ryan Kesler (UBI) held out of lineup Wed.
    Ryan Kesler (upper body injury) will be held out of Wednesday’s contest with the Oilers.

    Advice: Kesler was given a maintenance day during the morning skate Wednesday and will not be dressed for the game at night versus the Oilers. He has played in all 78 games for the Ducks this season, picking up 20 goals and 47 points and although he still carries a lot of "real-life" value for the Ducks, he has been a disappointing fantasy player for those who drafted him this season expecting 30 plus goals and 60 plus points. Consider him day-to-day and look for him to return to the Ducks lineup Friday against the Avalanche.
    Today, 6:36 pm
  • Evgeni Malkin scratched Wednesday night
    Evgeni Malkin is a late scratch due to an undisclosed injury for Wednesday's contest with the Philadelphia Flyers.

    Advice: Well this comes as a shocker considering he participated in the teams morning skate and was all set to play come game time. There are no further details released right now but stay tuned for more updates.
    Today, 4:58 pm
  • Jiri Hudler earns second star of the month
    Jiri Hudler has been selected as the second star of March.

    Advice: He led all players in scoring with 13 assists and 23 points in 15 games. Hudler has posted career highs in goals (29), assists (42) and points (71) in 74 games this campaign.
    Today, 3:57 pm
  • Mike Brown (leg) remains sidelined Wednesday
    Mike Brown (leg) will remain on the sidelines Wednesday night when the Sharks host the Avalanche.

    Advice: Brown hasn’t played since December 9th and has only appeared in eight games with the Sharks this season. He has yet to register a point and has 13 penalty minutes in those eight games. Look for him to return over the weekend. Barclay Goodrow will play on the fourth line in place of Brown.

    Injured Reserve
  • Patrick Kane practices, timetable unchanged
    Patrick Kane (clavicle) was back at practice on Wednesday.

    Advice: It was his first session with his teammates since he was taken out of the lineup with a broken clavicle. "I thought it was a pretty good step (Wednesday) skating with the team," Kane said. "I'm happy about that. I'm not really sure what the next step is. I'm sure it would be contact and maybe finish some of the drills the guys were doing. We'll kind of see how I feel there." Unfortunately, his timetable hasn't changed, which means he's still on track to return in mid-May.
    Today, 2:18 pm
    Injured Reserve
  • Bobby Ryan is mired in a goal slump
    Bobby Ryan has one goal in his last 14 games.

    Advice: He hasn't picked up a point in his past four games and he's registered just one shot on goal in three of those matches. Ryan topped 30 goals in four straight seasons with the Ducks, but he has 18 in 72 contests this year.

    Ty Rattie has been recalled by St. Louis.

  • Dustin Byfuglien will face hearing on Thurs.
    Dustin Byfuglien will have a hearing on Thursday for his cross-check to New York's J.T. Miller.

    Advice: He wasn't penalized on the play, but it's not surprising that he's facing a suspension for the incident. Byfuglien's stick made contact with the back of Miller's neck when the Rangers forward fell in front of the Winnipeg net.
    Today, 9:00 am
  • Mark Stone plays well against Wings
    Mark Stone played a strong game in Tuesday's 2-1 shootout win over Detroit.

    Advice: He registered an assist and seven shots during the match and followed that up with the game-winning goal in the shootout. Stone admitted to being frustrated during the game and he recalled his time with Canada at the World Junior Championships in 2012 when he had trouble beating Petr Mrazek.

  • Ovechkin one of six with six 50-goal seasons
    With a goal on Tuesday, Alex Ovechkin became the sixth player in the history of the league to have at least six 50-goal seasons.

    Advice: The other five are Guy Lafleur, Mike Bossy, Wayne Gretzky, Marcel Dionne, and Mario Lemieux. Ovechkin is just 29 years old, but he already has 472 goals in 755 games. That's good enough for 53rd place on the NHL's all-time list and puts him just one behind Denis Savard and Alexander Mogilny.
    Today, 7:34 am
  • David Pastrnak wins 'Seventh Player Award'
    David Pastrnak was presented with the "Seventh Player Award" before Tuesday's game.

    Advice: The award goes annually to the Bruins player who exceeded expectations. The rookie forward has recorded 11 goals and 16 assists in 41 games this season. Pastrnak has been especially good down the stretch and he racked up 13 points in 15 games in March. The 18-year-old provided the Bruins with a much-needed spark and his contributions could help Boston land the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
    Today, 7:33 am
  • Jannik Hansen nets a goal versus Nashville
    Jannik Hansen scored a goal in a 5-4 shootout win over Nashville Tuesday night.

    Advice: Hansen ended an eight-game point drought. He has 15 goals and 31 points in 76 contests in 2014-15.
    Today, 7:30 am
  • Loui Eriksson nets 20th goal of the year
    Loui Eriksson opened the scoring in Boston's 3-2 win over Florida on Tuesday night.

    Advice: He potted his 20th goal late in the first period. Florida scored twice in the second and Boston answered with two markers in the third to claim the victory. Eriksson produced six goals and nine points in 15 games during March.
    Today, 7:25 am
  • Rick Nash has 66 points in 75 games
    Rick Nash recorded an assist in a 3-2 victory against Winnipeg on Tuesday.

    Advice: Nash has 40 goals and 66 points in 75 games this season. This is the third time he's reached the 40-goal mark in his career. He still has a decent chance of also making this the second time in his career that he's recorded at least 70 points.
    Today, 6:51 am
  • Alexander Wennberg records assist in return
    Alexander Wennberg had an assist in Columbus' 3-2 overtime win versus New Jersey.

    Advice: Wennberg returned after missing four straight games with a hand injury. He has three goals and 17 points in 62 contests in 2014-15.
    Today, 6:23 am
  • Don't count on 2015-16 comeback for Semin
    Alexander Semin registered an assist in a 4-2 loss Tuesday night.

    Advice: Semin has five goals and 18 points in 51 contests in 2014-15. He's got a history of inconsistency and in this case fantasy owners might take some comfort in that as it suggests that a bounce back season in 2015-16 is not only possible, but wouldn't be out of the ordinary. Even still, we wouldn't recommend taking him until the end of 2015-16 standard league drafts, if you grab him at all.
    Today, 6:16 am
  • Alex Burrows posts full stat line in win
    Alex Burrows of the Canucks rewarded his fantasy owners by stuffing the stat sheet in a 5-4 shootout win over Nashville Tuesday night.

    Advice: The power forward not only registered a shorthanded goal and an assist in the Vancouver victory, but he was also assessed 15 penalty minutes late in the contest resulting from a collision with Nashville's Paul Gaustad. Linden Vey, Jannik Hansen and Chris Higgins all scored in the victory.
