    Curtis Lazar finally got his first point of 2016-17 on Sunday versus Columbus.

    Advice: He registered an assist and he got to play with Kyle Turris and Bobby Ryan for a bit, but he logged just 6:10 of ice time. Lazar has played over 10 minutes in a game just once in his last 13. He didn't have a point in his previous 24 matches with Ottawa this year and shouldn't be on your fantasy radar. Today, 7:37 am

    Advice: Hoffman tallied a pair of goals, giving him 17 on the year with 34 points in 41 games. Over his last seven games he has seven goals and nine points. However the Senators would go on to fall to the Blue Jackets 7-6 in overtime on Sunday. Sunday, 5:11 pm

    Injured Reserve
  • Trocheck scoring streak comes to end

    Advice: Rieder, Martin Hanzal and Radim Vrbata combined for 10 points in the Coyotes 5-3 win. The points snapped a six game pointless drought and gives the winger nine goals and 19 assists this season. He has been a very good find for the Coyotes with his two-way play. He was drafted late in the fourth round by Edmonton in 2011. While he is not worth a pick in fantasy, he contributes to the Coyotes in many ways other than the scoresheet. Sunday, 4:31 am
  • Stefan Noesen scores second of the season
    Stefan Noesen scored his second of the season Saturday.

    Advice: The forward was drafted 21st overall in 2011 by Ottawa and came over in the deal that brought Jakob Silfverberg to Anaheim and sent Bobby Ryan to Ottawa. He has been up and down numerous times this season and has two goals in 11 games thus far in the NHL in 2016-17. Sunday, 4:18 am

    Advice: Trocheck started the night out with a goal at the 3:46 mark of the first and added another at 8:25 to give the Panthers a 2-1 lead.

  • Alexander Burmistrov to play on Monday
    Look for Alexander Burmistrov to make his Arizona debut Monday.

    Advice: Burmistrov had a long break as he was picked up on waivers from Winnipeg but couldn't get a work visa for a week-and-a-half. "I want to give him the best chance to be successful," coach Dave Tippett said. "Morning skates aren’t much for him, and he hasn’t skated in 10 days. So we’ll give him a couple more days skating, and hopefully the Edmonton game will be his first game." Burmistrov struggled in Winnipeg where he had only two assists in 23 games. He was drafted eighth overall in 2010 and was worth the waiver claim to see what he can do away from the Jets. Jan 15, 4:19 am

    Stefan Noesen feels more at home in his second go-round with the Anaheim Ducks.

    Advice: Noesen was recalled earlier this season from San Diego and had a goal in seven games after making his NHL debut in April 2015. "I’m starting to almost become part of the team and feel like I belong," Noesen said. "I think that’s probably the most crucial part is making sure that you feel comfortable. Because if you don’t feel comfortable somewhere you’re always going to be very hesitant and very nervous all the time." Noesen was drafted 21st overall by Ottawa in 2011 and came to the Ducks in the Bobby Ryan trade. He has no value in fantasy at this time. Jan 15, 4:07 am

  • Koivu, Zucker, Granlund playing great hockey
    The Wild have been getting some great production from their second line.

    Advice: The line is made up of Mikko Koivu, Mikael Granlund and Jason Zucker. They were put together right after Thanksgiving and they've delivered in a big way. In 21 games together, Koivu has racked up 21 points, Zucker has 18 points and Granlund has 20 points. Jan 14, 7:44 am
