Player Notes

  • Ondrej Kase collects an assist on Sunday
    Ondrej Kase registered an assist in Anaheim's 6-2 loss to San Jose on Sunday.

    Advice: Kase has recorded at least a point in three straight games and has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last five contests. He's up to 12 goals and 22 points in 32 contests in 2017-18. Today, 4:25 am
  • Michael Grabner (flu) plays on Sunday
    Michael Grabner (flu) returned to action on Sunday January 21.

    Advice: Grabner couldn't play on Saturday due to the illness. He recorded a shot in 13:08 minutes of ice time Sunday. Yesterday, 11:49 pm
  • Jimmy Vesey breaks six-game goal drought
    Jimmy Vesey scored a goal in a 4-2 loss to the Los Angeles Kings.

    Advice: Vesey did well to battle in front and bury the rebound off of Brady Skjei's rebound. It's Vesey's first goal in his last six games, bringing him to 10 goals and 17 points in 48 games this season. David Desharnais also scored in the loss. Yesterday, 10:11 pm
  • Three point night for Mikkel Boedker
    Mikkel Boedker scored two goals and picked up an assist in a 6-2 win over the Anaheim Ducks.

    Advice: Boedker took a pass from Marc-Edouard Vlasic before firing a perfect snap shot in behind a screened John Gibson for his 100th career goal. Boedker then followed it up with a goal on a 3-on-1 rush that Gibson would probably love to get back. The Danish forward is now up to seven goals and 15 points in 38 games this season. The former eighth overall pick has developed into a two-way winger but does not warrant being on any fantasy squads. Marc-Edouard Vlasic, Kevin Labanc, Melker Karlsson and Joe Thornton also scored in the win. Yesterday, 8:54 pm
  • Jannik Hansen draws in for Joonas Donskoi
    Jannik Hansen will draw into the Sharks lineup Sunday night.

    Advice: Joonas Donskoi will sit out with the flu, thus Hansen will sub in on the Sharks' third line. Hansen has four assists in 26 games this season. Yesterday, 5:34 pm
  • Tampa Bay summons Michael Bournival
    The Lightning promoted Michael Bournival on Sunday.

    Advice: Bournival has 13 goals and 27 points in 40 AHL contests in 2017-18. He has 12 goals and 22 points in 108 career NHL games. Yesterday, 2:50 pm
  • Alex Ovechkin nets his 29th goal of 2017-18
    Alex Ovechkin netted the Capitals' only goal in a 2-1 overtime loss to Philadelphia on Sunday.

    Advice: It was Ovechkin's 29th goal of the 2017-18 campaign. He's gotten at least 30 goals in each of his first 12 campaigns and now he's on the verge of extending that streak to 13 seasons. He's also now just 13 goals away from 600. T.J. Oshie and John Carlson assisted on ovechkin's marker. Yesterday, 12:36 pm
  • Leipsic to draw back in Sunday v Canes
    Brendan Leipsic will draw back into the Vegas lineup Sunday evening against the Hurricanes.

    Advice: Leipsic didn't play against the Lightning on Thursday because of an undisclosed injury. He is slated to line up alongside Cody Eakin and Alex Tuch. Leipsic has an underrated offensive game but he's too inconsistent to be a fantasy asset. Yesterday, 11:37 am
  • Hrivik may draw in v Buffalo Monday
    Marek Hrivik may draw into the Flames' lineup Monday against the Sabres.

    Advice: Based on the line rushes during Sunday's practice, Hrivik looks to be replacing Andrew Mangiapane on Calgary's fourth line. Hrivik has been effective in the AHL this season with 29 points in 29 games, but he won't have any fantasy value toiling on the Flames' fourth unit. Yesterday, 10:41 am
  • Darren Helm likely out until the ASB
    Darren Helm (lower body) probably won't return until after the All-Star break.

    Advice: That would keep Helm out for at least three more games. He has four goals and 13 points in 41 games this season. Yesterday, 10:05 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Jaden Schwartz (ankle) takes contact Sunday
    Jaden Schwartz (ankle) joined the Blues for Sunday's practice.

    Advice: Schwartz even took part in contact drills, so it looks like he's very close to returning. Blues coach Mike Yeo isn't sure if Schwartz will be able to play on Tuesday though. Yesterday, 10:01 am
    Injured Reserve
  • C Wilson doesn't play Saturday due to the flu
    Colin Wilson missed Saturday's contest due to the flu.

    Advice: It was originally thought that Wilson had been a healthy scratch, but that wasn't the case. Consider him questionable for Monday's contest for now. Yesterday, 9:59 am
  • Nelson ends 17-game goaless game streak
    With his goal Saturday night against the Blackhawks, Brock Nelson ended a nasty goalless streak.

    Advice: Nelson had gone 17 games since scoring his last goal on December 11th. He also added two assists in the 7-3 win over the Blackhawks. Perhaps this game will serve as a jumping off point for Nelson who has had a terrible first half of the season with only 17 points in 48 games. Yesterday, 9:25 am
  • Taylor Hall misses another practice
    Taylor Hall is not participating in the Devils' practice Sunday.

    Advice: Hall also missed Friday's practice, but he did play Saturday against the Flyers and registered an assist. What is a bit worrisome, however, is that New Jersey coach John Hynes is going to address the media after Sunday's workout to discuss Hall's availability for Monday's game against Detroit. Stay tuned for further updates. Yesterday, 9:14 am
  • Kevin Fiala scores twice vs. Florida
    Kevin Fiala scored two goals in a 4-3 win over Florida.

    Advice: Fiala's markers gave the Predators the lead at 1-0 and then 3-2. He's up to 13 goals and 29 points in 44 contests in 2017-18. Yesterday, 6:49 am
  • Calle Jarnkrok gets three points on Saturday
    Calle Jarnkrok registered three assists in the Predators' 4-3 win over Florida on Saturday.

    Advice: It was Jarnkrok's first three-point game since April 13, 2014. He has 10 goals and 24 points in 45 contests this season. Yesterday, 6:47 am
  • Zach Parise nets his first goal of 2017-18
    Zach Parise scored his first goal of the season on Saturday.

    Advice: Parise was playing in his eighth game and the marker was also his second point of the campaign. He wasn't able to make his season debut until Jan. 2 due to a back injury. We might see him start to gain momentum offensively as he shakes off the rust. Yesterday, 6:43 am
  • Jamie Benn has a seven-game point streak
    Jamie Benn extended his point streak to seven games on Saturday.

    Advice: Benn has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last 14 games. At this point he's up to 19 goals and 46 points in 48 contests in 2017-18. Yesterday, 6:22 am

  • M. Janmark records his first 3-point game
    Mattias Janmark scored twice and registered an assist in the Stars' 7-1 win over Buffalo on Saturday.

  • Brad Marchand has 16 points in last 8 games
    Brad Marchand has recorded multiple points in each of his last three games.
