Player Notes

  • Lights lamp on power play
    Hyman scored a power-play goal on two shots and went minus-2 in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Wild.

    Advice: Hyman has scored in three straight games, but this was his first power-play point since Jan. 18. The 31-year-old winger also has just one multi-point effort since that date, but he's been consistent with eight goals and two assists over his last 13 outings. Hyman is up to 35 goals, 54 points (14 on the power play), 190 shots on net, 54 hits and a plus-20 rating through 53 appearances. Today, 10:11 pm
  • Offers assist Friday
    Hartman recorded an assist, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 4-2 win over the Oilers.

    Advice: Hartman's goal drought is over a month long -- he has five assists over 12 contests since he last scored. The 29-year-old has moved up and down the lineup this season, but he's been on the second line and second power-play unit recently. He's up to 29 points, 117 shots on net, 56 hits, 40 PIM and a minus-5 rating through 52 appearances this season. Today, 9:54 pm
  • Fills empty cage
    Zuccarello scored an empty-net goal on two shots in Friday's 4-2 win over the Oilers.

    Advice: Zuccarello has six points over his last three contests, with his tally Friday being his first even-strength point in that span. The Wild shuffled Zuccarello off the top line after the All-Star break, which has taken some of the pop out of his offense. He's now at 11 goals, 46 points, 118 shots on net and a minus-4 rating through 48 outings. The 36-year-old winger should still be a safe fantasy play with his significant power-play role. Today, 9:40 pm
  • Two goals in win
    Boldy scored twice on seven shots and went plus-3 in Friday's 4-2 win over the Oilers.

    Advice: Boldy earned his fifth multi-point effort over the last seven games. He opened the scoring late in the first period and added the game-winner at 12:18 of the third. The winger is enjoying life on the top line and first power-play unit. For the season, Boldy has 22 goals, 46 points, 152 shots on net and a plus-6 rating over 50 appearances. Today, 9:36 pm
  • Rejoins big club
    Brazeau was promoted from AHL Providence on Friday, per CapFriendly.

    Advice: Brazeau tallied a goal in his NHL debut Feb. 19. The 26-year-old winger has 18 goals and 37 points with AHL Providence this season. He could draw back into Boston's lineup Saturday in Vancouver. Today, 8:44 pm
  • Lights lamp Thursday
    Aube-Kubel notched a goal and added two shots and two hits during Thursday's 5-3 win over the Lightning.

    Advice: Aube-Kubel scored a highlight-reel goal in the first period as he dangled around multiple defenders before backhanding the puck past Andrei Vasilevskiy to open the scoring for Washington. The 27-year-old has posted a healthy two goals and four points in his last 10 games and has been promoted to the top line alongside Alex Ovechkin and Dylan Strome while T.J. Oshie (lower body) is on the mend which should be a tremendous boost to his fantasy value. Today, 6:31 pm
  • Dishes two helpers Thursday
    Wilson tallied two assists and added three hits and two blocked shots during Thursday's 5-3 win over the Lightning.

    Advice: This was Wilson's first multi-point game since Dec. 14 as the burly winger has been scuffling since suffering a broken nose in January with just one goal and four points in his last 16 games. With injuries mounting in their forward ranks, the Capitals will need Wilson to become a more consistent offensive producer as the 2023-24 season enters the home stretch. Today, 6:15 pm
  • Good to go Friday
    Texier (undisclosed) will suit up Friday against Buffalo, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

    Advice: Texier missed morning skate but won't be absent for any game action. The 24-year-old tallied two assists Wednesday against the Ducks, snapping a six-game drought without a point. Today, 3:32 pm
  • Suffers undisclosed injury
    Konecny exited Friday's practice because of an undisclosed injury, Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

    Advice: Konecny got off the ice under his own power, but he seemed to be in discomfort and didn't rejoin his teammates for the remainder of practice. There was no update on his status after the skate, so it's hard to know what his chances are of playing Saturday versus the Rangers. If Konecny and Tyson Foerster (lower body) are both unavailable, then Philadelphia will likely need to call up a forward, possibly Olle Lycksell, who was returned to AHL Lehigh Valley on Thursday.
