Player Notes

  • Ends long slump with helper
    Brown notched an assist in Monday's 4-2 win over the Kings.

    Advice: Brown entered Monday on an 11-game point drought. He ended the slump when he set up Ryan Nugent-Hopkins for an insurance marker in the third period. Brown has five assists, 79 shots on net and a minus-9 rating over 48 appearances this season. He's still sticking in the lineup over Sam Gagner, but Brown's fourth-line role makes him a non-factor in fantasy. Rotowire.com Today, 12:19 am
  • Supplies assist Monday
    Janmark registered an assist and two hits in Monday's 4-2 win over the Kings.

    Advice: Janmark helped out on a Ryan Nugent-Hopkins tally in the third period. This was Janmark's fourth point over the last five games, following a span of 10 scoreless outings. The 31-year-old was moved up to the second line with Leon Draisaitl playing on Connor McDavid's wing Monday. Janmark has 10 points, 48 shots on net, 38 hits, 39 PIM and a minus-2 rating through 45 outings overall, most often filling a bottom-six role. Rotowire.com Today, 12:17 am
  • Pots goal in win
    Hyman scored a goal on three shots in Monday's 4-2 win over the Kings.

    Advice: Hyman has scored in five straight games, racking up six goals and an assist in that span. The 31-year-old's tally came late in the first period Monday to tie the game at 1-1. He's up to 38 goals, 57 points, 201 shots on net and a plus-20 rating through 55 appearances this season. Hyman is a virtually automatic option for fantasy as long as he remains on the Oilers' top line. Rotowire.com Today, 12:15 am
  • Supplies power-play helper
    Harley notched a power-play assist and two PIM in Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Islanders.

    Advice: Harley snapped a three-game point drought with the helper. He set up Matt Duchene for the Stars' first tally in the game. While he probably won't push for anything near a point-per-game pace, Harley has been incredibly strong in his first full NHL campaign. He's at 35 points (six on the power play) with 108 shots on net, 104 blocked shots and a plus-18 rating through 57 appearances. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 11:29 pm
  • Offers helper
    Johnston notched an assist and two shots on goal in Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Islanders.

    Advice: Johnston set up fellow youngster Logan Stankoven's first NHL goal at 18:17 of the second period. It's a glimpse into the future for the Stars, though Johnston is already an established key part of the NHL roster. The 20-year-old has nine points through 11 outings in February and has matched his rookie-year production with 41 points through 60 appearances. Johnston has added 141 shots on net and a plus-1 rating this season while filling a middle-six role. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 11:27 pm
  • Racks up two points in win
    Draisaitl scored a goal and added an assist in Monday's 4-2 win over the Kings.

    Advice: With the Oilers down 2-1 in the second period, Draisaitl tied up the game with his 29th goal of the year on the power-play on a deflection of Evan Bouchard's shot. Draisaitl added a helper of his own in the third frame on Bouchard's game-winning goal. This was Draisaitl's 22nd multi-point game of the season and he now sits 11th in the league with 73 points over 56 contests. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 11:26 pm
  • Earns 800th career point
    Duchene scored a power-play goal in Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Islanders.

    Advice: Duchene had gone three games without a point entering Monday, his longest drought since late December. The goal was the 33-year-old's 800th career point, a mark he achieved in his 1,034th game. This season has been a resurgent one for Duchene, who is up to 23 tallies, 56 points, 120 shots on net and a plus-16 rating through 58 appearances. He's virtually mirroring his scoring production from last year with a quarter of the campaign to go, though it'll be interesting to see how Duchene adapts while Tyler Seguin (lower body) is out.

  • Two-point effort in win
    Nugent-Hopkins scored a goal and added an assist in Monday's 4-2 win over the Kings.

    Advice: With the Oilers tied 2-2 early in the third period, Nugent-Hopkins assisted on Evan Bouchard's game-winning marker to put the Oilers up for good. Nugent-Hopkins finished the game with a goal of his own on a deflection as he drove to the net with under four minutes remaining. He finished with two shots, two hits and a plus-1 rating in 18:49 of ice time. His consistent production, coupled with his role on the power play, makes him a valuable asset to any fantasy team.

  • Logs assist in shootout loss
    Shattenkirk notched an assist, two shots on goal and three blocked shots in Monday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Kraken.

    Advice: Shattenkirk has not played more than two games in a row since mid-January. The 35-year-old set up David Pastrnak's first of two goals in Monday's game. Through 47 outings, Shattenkirk has 15 points, 63 shots on net, 65 blocked shots, 37 hits and a minus-3 rating. With Derek Forbort (coach's decision) likely back in the fold Thursday versus the Golden Knights, Shattenkirk will again find himself as a rotational option on the third pairing.
