Player Notes

  • Plays big minutes
    Leddy posted three goals and 25 assists across 82 games during the 2023-24 season.

    Advice: Leddy also added a career-high 127 blocked shots while averaging 22:22 of ice time. The 33-year-old has proven he can eat big minutes on the blue line, but his lack of power-play minutes over two seasons with the Blues has limited his fantasy upside. Rotowire.com Today, 6:01 pm
  • Two points in second season
    Tucker posted a goal and an assist across 26 games during the 2023-24 season.

    Advice: Tucker played exactly 26 games for the second consecutive season but averaged just 12:27 of ice time while firing 42 shots on net. He showed some promise as a third-pairing defenseman, but he's at risk of spending next season in the minors if the Blues sign an established blueliner in free agency. Rotowire.com Today, 5:59 pm
  • Pots goal in Game 4 win
    Nurse scored a goal on six shots, blocked five shots, added four PIM and went plus-3 in Saturday's 8-1 win over the Panthers in Game 4.

    Advice: There's been little to like from Nurse's game this postseason, but he was at his best, aside from the penalties, in Saturday's big win. The defenseman has just five points through 22 playoff contests, and he's still at a minus-11 rating. He's remained a physical force on the blue line with 46 hits and 55 blocks.

  • Returning to Europe
    Simek signed a three-year contract with Liberec of the Czech Extraliga on Friday.

    Advice: The 31-year-old defenseman has played parts of five seasons with the Sharks but he spent the entire 2023-24 season at the AHL level, picking up four goals and 13 assists in 49 games split between Grand Rapids and AHL San Jose. The Czech native will likely finish his playing career in Europe. Rotowire.com Friday, 7:49 am
  • Garners assist in Game 3
    Kulak provided an assist, three blocked shots and two PIM in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Panthers in Game 3.

    Advice: The helper ended a seven-game slump for Kulak. The defenseman has earned six points, 18 shots on net, 20 hits, 42 blocked shots, 12 PIM and an even plus-minus rating over 21 playoff appearances. Kulak remains in a third-pairing role and isn't overly physical, but he's been steady for an Oilers defense that has become tumultuous in the Stanley Cup Finals. Rotowire.com Friday, 12:04 am
