Player Notes

  • Josh Dunne impresses John Tortorella in NHL debut
    Josh Dunne impressed coach John Tortorella in his NHL debut Thursday.

    Advice: Well, that's not easy to do as Tortorella can be a tough one to impress. While he won only one face off in nine attempts, Dunne played the part of a pest, Tortorella's favorite type of player. “I thought he did some good things,” Tortorella said. "You can see that he’s an intelligent player, because he asks the right questions. … That’s encouraging for a big man, a young guy.” Look for Dunne to have a spot as a bottom-six forward and have little-to-no fantasy value. 42 minutes ago
  • Teravainen will decide when he is ready to return
    Teuvo Teravainen (concussion) will decide when he is ready to return.

    Advice: Teravainen has played only one game since February 19 as he returned on March 4 but shut it down after that game again. “I’d love to be able to say it’s close but it’s up to him,” coach Rod Brind’Amour said on a media call. “He’s got to feel confident in his ability to go out and play the way he can. The positive thing is he’s out there with us. That’s a lot better than it was. That’s a good step in the right direction and who knows. Whether it will be soon, I can’t tell you.” Teravainen has two goals and 11 points in 13 games this season. Stay tuned. 49 minutes ago
  • Nylander flys with the Leafs to Vancouver
    William Nylander (COVID) flew with his teammates to Vancouver on Friday.

    Advice: Nylander was taken off the COVID list and while he was allowed to fly to Vancouver, the Maple Leafs will determine his playing shape before deciding whether or not he will be in the lineup Sunday when Toronto takes on the Canucks. In a weekly transaction league, put Nylander in your lineup Monday. He has 13 goals and 30 points in 39 games this season. Today, 3:33 am
  • Joe Veleno could see time in NHL this season
    Former first-round pick Joe Veleno, could see time in the NHL this season.

    Advice: Veleno returned from playing a full season with Malmo of the Swedish League last week and was sent to Grand Rapids to get in some extra playing time as he missed the last three weeks of the regular season as well as the playoffs due to a concussion/whiplash. “There’s potential that he could play games for us this year,” coach Jeff Blashill said. “Do I know that for a fact? No. There’s certainly the potential he could, it’s something I’ll discuss with (general manager) Steve (Yzerman) and, ultimately, it’s important to get looks at certain guys so Steve and his management team will determine which guys are going to be guys that we want to get experience in the NHL with.” Veleno had played center all of his life but saw action on the wing in Sweden and that's where he could play once he has recovered from his injury. Today, 3:25 am
  • Curtis Lazar scores first as a Bruin
    Curtis Lazar scored his first goal as a Boston Bruin in Friday's 3-0 win over the New York Islanders.

    Advice: Lazar was seen as more of a throw-in in the Taylor Hall trade but he has been strong in three games as a Bruin, centering the fourth line with Sean Kuraly and Chris Wagner as Boston has turned their season around of late. While we cannot recommend Lazar as a fantasy option, he has been a pleasant surprise in his first week. Today, 3:19 am
  • Robin Lehner secures a shutout vs. Anaheim
    Robin Lehner secured a shutout during Friday's 4-0 victory over the Anaheim Ducks.

    Advice: Lehner did not face much pressure in this matchup, as Anaheim only put up 16 shots on goal. However, he still did not allow any pucks to pass him and picked up his first shutout of this season. This was the 16th shutout of his career. Lehner has yet to post a regulation loss since his return to the Vegas lineup. His performance in this game helps boost his record to 10-1-2 and he also extends his win streak to four games. Currently Lehner is still splitting starts with his counterpart, Marc-Andre Fleury. The two net minders make Vegas one of the strongest teams in that position. Yesterday, 10:03 pm
  • Chandler Stephenson picks up two points in win
    Chandler Stephenson picked up two points during Friday night's 4-0 win over the Anaheim Ducks.

    Advice: Stephenson's first point of the night came 4:27 into the second period, as he scored a goal to put Vegas up 2-0. Later in the third, Stephenson picked up the primary assist on the last goal of the game scored by Brayden McNabb to cap off his two-point night. With this performance, Stephenson extends his point streak to three games. The 26-year-old has posted six points in his past five appearances. Stephenson now has 10 goals and 16 assists for a total of 26 points on the year. Yesterday, 9:54 pm
  • John Gibson makes 47 saves in loss to Vegas
    John Gibson made 47 saves during Friday's 4-0 loss to the Vegas Golden Knights.

    Advice: Despite the score at the end of the night, Gibson put up a very solid performance in this one. He allowed four goals on a total of 51 shots and finished the night with a .922 save percentage. Unfortunately, the rest of his team did not play up to the mark and they only put up 16 shots on the Vegas net. This made this game extremely lopsided and Gibson faced constant pressure. Regardless of his individual level of play, Gibson comes out of this game with a loss that drops his record to 8-15-6. He has now picked up three consecutive losses. Yesterday, 9:47 pm
  • Rickard Rakell posts two SOG in loss to Vegas
    Rickard Rakell posted two shots on goal during Friday's 4-0 loss to the Vegas Golden Knights.

    Advice: This game marked an incredibly underwhelming performance for the Ducks offense. No player was able to crack the scoreboard and the team only managed to put up 16 shots on net during the entire matchup. Rakell picked up two of said shots during his 17 minutes of ice time. He currently has eight goals and 15 assists for a total of 23 points on the year. He has the second-most points and the third-most goals on the Ducks roster. He leads Anaheim in terms of assists.  Yesterday, 9:35 pm
  • Martin Jones allows 3 goals in loss to Wild
    Martin Jones allowed three goals on 18 shots in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Minnesota Wild.

    Advice: The Sharks opened the scoring on a goal by Tomas Hertl less than four minutes into the game, but the Wild managed to score the next three. This wasn't Jones' finest night, but that's just the way this season has gone for him. The Sharks netminder owns a 15-11-2 record with a 3.14 goals-against-average and .899 save percentage this season. Jones has dropped three games in a row.  Yesterday, 7:58 pm
  • Cam Talbot stops 20 shots in win over SJ
    Cam Talbot allowed two goals on 22 shots in Friday's 3-2 win over the San Jose Sharks. 

    Advice: The Sharks opened the scoring on a Tomas Hertl goal in the first period, but the Wild managed to score three consecutive goals before the start of the third frame. Talbot continues to dominate on home ice, as he's now won 10 of 11 games in Minnesota this season. The 33-year-old has won three of his last four games and he hasn't suffered a regulation loss during that stretch. He has a 14-6-3 record with a 2.42 goals-against-average and a .922 save percentage in 2021.  Yesterday, 7:52 pm
  • Evander Kane scores 17th goal in loss to MIN
    Evander Kane found the back of the net during Friday's 3-2 loss to the Minnesota Wild.

    Advice: Kane's solid work on the penalty kill led to him scoring a shorthanded goal in the third period to cut the Sharks' deficit to 3-2 with just over six minutes remaining. The 29-year-old came into this game with no points in each of his last three outings and no goals in his last five. The Sharks forward now has 17 goals and 36 points in 43 games this season. Tomas Hertl also scored for the Sharks during Friday night's loss.  Yesterday, 7:47 pm
  • Nick Bonino nets 1G, 1A in win over Sharks
    Nick Bonino scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 3-2 win over the San Jose Sharks. 

    Advice: Bonino's goal at the 9:30 mark of the first period tied the game, 1-1. He also registered an assist on Zach Parise's insurance marker (3-1) early in the second frame. Bonino finished the night with a plus-1 rating, two shots on goal and one hit in 16:44 of ice time. The 32-year-old has accumulated five points over his last two games against the Coyotes and Sharks. He has six goals and eight assists in 41 games this season.  Yesterday, 6:52 pm
  • Ilya Sorokin allows 2 goals in loss to Bruins
    Ilya Sorokin allowed two goals on 27 shots in Friday's 3-0 loss to the Boston Bruins.

    Advice: Sorokin played pretty well in this game, as he was able to keep his team in it but the Isles failed to beat rookie Jeremy Swayman. The 25-year-old's personal three-game winning streak is officially over, but he's given up two goals in four consecutive outings. He has an 11-4-1 record with a 2.16 goals-against-average and a .916 save percentage in 2021. Sorokin's first NHL season has gone pretty well.  Yesterday, 6:48 pm
  • Jeremy Swayman collects first NHL shutout
    Jeremy Swayman stopped all 25 shots he faced during Friday's 3-0 win over the New York Islanders.

    Advice: This was the first NHL shutout of Swayman's NHL career. The 22-year-old continued his impressive play on Friday night, as he appeared to be really calm in his net. Swayman has an impressive 4-1-0 record on the season and he's given up two goals or fewer in all but one of those outings. He'll head into his next appearance with a 1.78 goals-against-average and a .938 save percentage. It looks like he needs to be picked up in most dynasty leagues because his upside is undeniable.  Yesterday, 6:44 pm
  • Brock Nelson finishes minus-3 in loss to Bruins
    Brock Nelson had a minus-3 rating during Friday's 3-0 loss to the Boston Bruins.

    Advice: Nelson was on the ice for all three goals against on Friday, but he also tied for a team-high five shots on goal. The 29-year-old failed to score in back-to-back games against Boston and he's picked up just one assist in his last four games. He has 15 goals and 10 assists in 43 games this season.  Yesterday, 6:39 pm
  • Tomas Nosek (undisclosed) out vs. Anaheim
    The Vegas Golden Knights won't have Tomas Nosek (undisclosed) on Friday night against the Anaheim Ducks.

    Advice: Nosek is coming off a three-point outing on Wednesday night but won't be available for tonight's game. Dylan Coghlan will be taking his spot in the lineup. Yesterday, 6:34 pm
  • Jacob Larsson scratched against Vegas
    The Anaheim Ducks won't dress Jacob Larsson on Friday night against the Vegas Golden Knights.

    Advice: This is back-to-back games for him in the press box. The 23-year-old blueliner has four points in 36 games this season. Isac Lundestrom and Anthony Stolarz will also be scratched. Yesterday, 6:31 pm
  • Taylor Hall scores again, Bruins beat Isles
    Taylor Hall found the back of the net in Friday's 3-0 win over the New York Islanders. 

    Advice: Hall scored less than one minute into the second period to make it 2-0 for the Bruins at the time. The 29-year-old had two goals in 37 games with Buffalo this season, but he's already scored twice in three games with his new team. Hall finished tonight's game with a plus-1 rating and three shots on goal in 15:15 of ice time. He now has 21 points in 40 games in 2021. Those aren't totals he can be proud of, but he could get hot down the stretch for the Bruins. David Pastrnak and Curtis Lazar also found the back of the net for Boston on Friday.  Yesterday, 6:00 pm
  • Jacob Markstrom allows 2 goals in loss to Habs
    Jacob Markstrom allowed two goals on 20 shots in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens.

    Advice: Markstrom had been terrific against the Canadiens this season and that didn't really change on Friday night, but Tyler Toffoli was able to beat him twice in this one. Markstrom's three-game winning streak is officially over. This was a huge loss for the Flames, as they're chasing the Canadiens for the final playoff spot in the North Division. He has a 15-15-2 record with a 2.79 goals-against-average and a .903 save percentage in 2021.  Yesterday, 5:56 pm
