• Struggling offensively
    Jarvis extended his pointless streak to four games in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Canucks.

    Advice: Jarvis has been scuffling a bit as of late, although overall he still has a solid 19 points in 27 games, putting him on pace for a 55- to 60-point season. He's still skating mainly on the Canes' top line alongside Sebastian Aho and Michael Bunting, so as long as he continues to see top-six minutes (he had a season high 22:14 TOI Saturday with 5:09 coming on the PP), he's worth starting in most formats.

  • Offered in-person hearing
    Perron was offered an in-person hearing Sunday after cross-checking Artem Zub in Saturday's contest against Ottawa.

    Advice: Perron was assessed a match penalty for cross-checking Artem Zub towards the head in Saturday's contest. The 35-year-old winger could be facing a lengthy suspension for the dangerous hit. Perron has seven goals and 13 points through 26 games this season. Rotowire.com Today, 8:32 am
  • Agrees to PTO
    Puljujarvi (hip) signed a professional tryout agreement with Pittsburgh on Sunday.

    Advice: Puljujarvi hasn't played yet during the 2023-24 campaign after he underwent double hip surgery during the offseason. The 25-year-old forward produced five goals, 16 points, 125 shots on net and 139 hits in 75 games between Edmonton and Carolina last season. Rotowire.com Today, 7:46 am
  • Good to go
    Laine (illness) will return to the lineup Sunday against Florida, Jeff Svoboda of the Blue Jackets' official site reports.

    Advice: Laine, who sat out the past three contests, has generated five goals, seven points, 36 shots on net and 13 blocked shots over 16 appearances this season. He will replace Mathieu Olivier in the lineup. Rotowire.com Today, 7:23 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
  • Returns to action
    Nichushkin had five shots on net, two blocked shots and three hits over 21:58 of ice time in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Flyers.

    Advice: Nichushkin returned to the lineup after missing two games due to illness and opened on the second line with Mikko Rantanen and Tomas Tatar. By the end of the second period and into the third, both Nichushkin and Rantanen were reunited with Nathan MacKinnon on the top line. The slumping Avalanche -- losers in five of the last six games -- are averaging just 2.3 goals during their downturn, which has left coach Jared Bednar searching for the right combinations to trigger offense. Having Nichushkin back will help achieve that objective. Rotowire.com Today, 6:33 am
  • Nets lone goal in loss
    Dadonov scored a goal in Saturday's 6-1 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Advice: Dadonov has scored in two of three games since he returned from a two-game stint in the press box. The 34-year-old winger has been back on the third line and second power-play unit -- it appears the benching sufficed to light a spark in his game. Dadonov is at six goals, four assists, 31 shots on net and a minus-9 rating through 24 appearances. His mediocre scoring and lack of non-scoring production means he won't be an option to help most fantasy managers. Rotowire.com Today, 12:33 am
  • One of each Saturday
    Roy scored a goal on two shots, added an assist and went plus-2 in Saturday's 6-1 win over the Stars.

    Advice: Roy has a goal and six helpers over his last nine contests while also going plus-5 in that span. He helped out on a Zach Whitecloud tally in the first period and then scored a goal of his own in the second in this blowout win. Roy is up to 11 points, 38 shots on net, a plus-6 rating and 11 hits through 19 appearances this season. It's a similar pace to what he showed last year with 30 points across 65 games, though this is the second year in a row he's missed a significant chunk of time due to an injury.
