• Strikes on power play
    Suzuki scored a power-play goal in Saturday's 3-2 shootout win over the Sabres. He added three shots and one hit to his line over 22:26 of ice time.

    Advice: Suzuki scored just his second goal over the last 13 games. As the trailer on the play, he took a drop-back pass with speed and skated through Buffalo's defenders to beat Devon Levi high to the stick side. It was Suzuki's fifth power-play tally, and the top-line center's last five markers have been scored with the Canadiens up a skater. Suzuki last scored at even-strength Nov. 4 against St. Louis.

  • Activated from IR
    Sillinger (upper body) was activated from injured reserve Sunday.

    Advice: Sillinger is expected to return from a five-game absence in Sunday's contest against Florida. He has picked up one goal, eight assists, 42 shots on net, 25 blocked shots and 23 hits across 24 appearances this season. Rotowire.com Today, 7:10 am
  • Syncs back up with Kane
    DeBrincat registered an assist in Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Senators.

    Advice: DeBrincat set the stage for Patrick Kane's first goal as a Red Wing. It's common knowledge that those two originally were linemates with the Blackhawks; Kane was instrumental in helping Cat to a pair of 41-goal seasons. Wings coach Derek Lalonde might have to get creative with his line combinations since captain Dylan Larkin sustained an undisclosed injury in Saturday's game, but DeBrincat, of course, is a mainstay in the top-six group of forwards, carrying 13 goals and 12 assists through 26 games heading into Monday's road clash with the Stars.

  • Goal-less streak reaches nine
    Rantanen had six shots on net, one blocked shot and one hit over 22:11 of ice time in Saturday's 5-2 loss to Philadelphia.

    Advice: Rantanen, who entered the game on an eight-game stretch without a tally, nearly ended the slump in the first period but hit the crossbar on the power play. He opened the game on the second line with the returning Valeri Nichushkin -- back after missing two games due to illness -- and Tomas Tatar. By the third period, coach Jared Bednar reunited Rantanen and Nichushkin with Nathan MacKinnon, which is a sign the coach is not pleased the rest of the forwards. That trio generated scoring opportunities during the third, but the Avalanche were unable to keep pace with the Flyers. Rotowire.com Today, 6:54 am
  • Flawless in relief
    Reimer saved all 11 shots that came his way in relief duty on the way to Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Senators.

    Advice: Reimer stepped into the crease to start the third period after scheduled starter Alex Lyon permitted four goals on 25 shots. Ironically, Reimer hadn't played since a Nov. 16 contest against the Senators in Sweden for the NHL Global Series, when he set aside 29 of 34 shots and ended up saddled with an overtime loss. The Red Wings are unique because they have three goalies on the active roster, with Ville Husso's 14 appearances leading the trio. There's simply not enough work for Reimer to stand out in fantasy, despite his impressive 2.18 GAA and .922 save percentage between seven contests. Rotowire.com Today, 6:45 am
  • Inactive Saturday
    Olofsson was not in the active lineup for Saturday's game against the Flyers.

    Advice: There was no report that Olofsson was injured, so the working assumption is that he was a healthy scratch. Valeri Nichushkin returned from an illness, and someone had to sit. Kurtis MacDermid was active instead. Rotowire.com Today, 6:44 am
  • Could return Sunday
    Laine (illness) could be back in the lineup Sunday versus Florida, per Aaron Portzline of The Athletic.

    Advice: Laine has missed the last three games. It has been a tough season for Laine, who was also a healthy scratch Nov. 19 for his ineffective play. He has five goals and seven points in 16 games this campaign. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 9:32 am
  • Excellent in season debut
    Greaves stopped 41 of 43 shots in Friday's 5-2 win over the Blues.

    Advice: Greaves turned in a stellar performance in his first NHL contest of the season. He also received ample support from his offense to secure the win. The 22-year-old is in the NHL while Elvis Merzlikins (illness) and Daniil Tarasov (knee) work their way back. With no back-to-backs over the next week, Greaves is unlikely to see any more playing time during this stint with the big club. Rotowire.com Friday, 8:43 pm
  • Remains unavailable against Blues
    Gudbranson (illness) has been ruled out versus St. Louis on Friday, Brian Hedger of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

    Advice: Gudbranson was mired in a five-match pointless streak prior to his three-game absence. As such, the majority of fantasy players probably aren't anxiously awaiting the blueliner's return to action. Andrew Peeke figures to remain in the lineup with Gudbranson shelved.
