  • Strong again in loss
    Marchessault scored a goal and added an assist, both on the power play, in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Panthers in Game 3.

    Advice: Marchessault continues to be virtually unstoppable with eight goals and five assists during his active eight-game point streak. The Golden Knights weren't able to get anything going at even strength Thursday, but Marchessault remains effective in most scoring situations. The winger has 13 tallies, 10 assists, 71 shots on net, 50 hits and a plus-16 rating through 20 playoff contests. Yesterday, 9:13 pm
  • Secures win in overtime
    Verhaeghe scored a goal on three shots, added an assist and went plus-2 in Thursday's 3-2 overtime win over the Golden Knights in Game 3.

    Advice: Verhaeghe gave the Panthers their first ever win in a Stanley Cup Finals game with his tally 4:27 into overtime. He also set up Matthew Tkachuk's game-tying goal in the third period. Prior to Thursday, Verhaeghe had been limited to one assist over his last five contests. He's at seven tallies, 10 helpers, 52 shots on net and a plus-10 rating through 19 playoff appearances. Yesterday, 8:43 pm
  • Set to play Thursday
    Karlsson (illness) is expected to be in the lineup for Game 3 on Thursday.

    Advice: Karlsson missed Wednesday's practice because of the illness, but he was back on the ice Thursday and said afterwards that he feels good. He has 10 goals and 15 points in 19 playoff contests this year. Karlsson is projected to play on a line with Reilly Smith and Michael Amadio in Game 3. Yesterday, 12:03 pm
  • Has MCL strain
    The injury that caused Dadonov to miss Dallas' final three playoff contests was an MCL strain, Stars general manager Jim Nill told Brian Rea of Bally Sports Southwest on Thursday.

    Advice: Dadonov hasn't fully recovered from the injury. He recorded seven goals and 33 points in 73 regular-season outings in 2022-23 and contributed another four goals and 10 points in 16 playoff contests. Dadonov is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this summer after completing his three-year, $15 million contract. Yesterday, 10:08 am
  • Re-ups with Blueshirts
    Blidh signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Rangers on Wednesday, per PuckPedia.

    Advice: Blidh posted 23 points in 53 AHL games split between Hartford and Coloradothis year. The winger is a veteran of 84 NHL contests over the last seven years, but he's managed just 12 points over that span. He'll likely be organizational depth for the Rangers in 2023-24, and he'll be limited to a bottom-six role at the NHL level at best. Wednesday, 4:49 pm

  • Inks two-year deal
    Athanasiou signed a two-year, $8.5 million contract with the Blackhawks on Wednesday, per PuckPedia.

    Advice: Athanasiou was able to turn his second-best season into a two-year deal after logging 20 goals and 20 helpers in 81 contests in 2022-23. The 28-year-old forward was often playing in a top-six role for Chicago, especially later in the season after trades decimated the team's forward depth. He's a natural center but may fit better on the wing, and the potential that he could end up playing with Connor Bedard makes Athanasiou slightly more interesting for fantasy managers. Wednesday, 3:07 pm
  • Misses practice with illness
    Karlsson missed Wednesday's practice because of an illness, according to Ben Gotz of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

    Advice: Karlsson is still probable for Game 3 on Thursday. It would be a big loss for Vegas if he isn't able to play, especially given that he's provided 10 goals and 15 points in 19 playoff contests this year. If Karlsson isn't available Thursday, then Teddy Blueger might draw into the lineup for the first time since May 25. Wednesday, 11:13 am
  • Unavailable Thursday
    Luostarinen (lower body) will miss Game 3 on Thursday, Mike Stephens of reports.

    Advice: Florida will be without Luostarinen for a third straight contest. He has two goals and five points in 16 playoff contests this year. If Luostarinen is able to return before the end of the Stanley Cup Finals, he will likely play on Florida's second or third line. Wednesday, 9:37 am
  • Has three-point game
    Marchessault contributed two goals and an assist in Vegas' 7-2 win over Florida in Game 2 on Monday.

    Advice: Marchessault tallied the opening goal on the power play midway through the first period and then provided the secondary helper on Alec Martinez's goal late in the frame. Marchessault's second marker came early in the third period to extend Vegas' edge to 5-1. He's been one of the Golden Knights' top forwards in the 2023 playoffs, providing 12 goals and 21 points in 19 outings. The 31-year-old is also red hot, supplying seven goals and 11 points over his current seven-game scoring streak. Monday, 9:26 pm
