News: Gabriel Landeskog was held pointless Saturday, but he picked up 10 PIM in a loss to the Wild. Analysis: Gabriel Landeskog, who has recorded six goals in his last nine games, also fired three shots on goal in Saturday's loss. Landeskog is impressing right now and considering the top-line forward has racked up 65 PIM on the season, he makes for a good all-around fantasy option.
News: Cody McLeod was dinged for 17 PIM in Saturday's loss to the Wild. Analysis: A spirited outing from Cody McLeod, who now has a whopping 167 PIM this season -- second-most in the NHL. While he's only produced nine points in 63 games, the 30-year-old piles up the PIM, making him worth owning in deep specialty leagues.
News: Justin Fontaine scored the game-winning goal Saturday against Colorado. Analysis: Justin Fontaine has been productive of late, compiling three goals and nine points in his last eight games. He's now got eight goals, 22 points and a plus-11 rating in 52 games on the season. He can be trusted in some very deep leagues, but considering he averages just 11:32 of ice time, the bottom-six forward doesn't hold much fantasy value.
News: Erik Haula recorded his second straight multi-point game Saturday, scoring his seventh goal of the season and picking up an assist in a win over Colorado. Analysis: While he's been hot these past two game, Erik Haula had recorded just one point in his previous 15 games. Considering he skates on the fourth line and has just 12 points in 55 games on the season, the 23-year-old currently only has fantasy value in the deepest of leagues.
News: Semyon Varlamov gave up three goals on 32 shots in Saturday's loss to the Wild. Analysis: Semyon Varlamov has now given up at least three goals in each of his last four games. The 26-year-old owns a 19-17-7 record on the season with a .917 save percentage and 2.69 GAA. He may be struggling a little right now, but he's played in a whopping 43 games and is the go-to-guy in Colorado. He'll rebound soon.
News: Devan Dubnyk was outstanding once again Saturday, stopping 33 of 34 shots in a win over Colorado. Analysis: Devan Dubnyk has won five of his last six games, allowing two goals or less in each of those contests. He's also suffered just two regulation losses in his last 16 games played. Simply remarkable. He's an automatic roll every game.
News: Henrik Samuelsson was assigned to AHL Portland on Sunday. Analysis: Henrik Samuelsson has played in just two games with the Coyotes this season, spending most of his time with AHL Portland.

News: Roman Josi dished out a pair of helpers in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Red Wings. Analysis: Can you believe this guy has three more points than Shea Weber? Of course, Weber has four more goals, 46 more PIM and 40 more SOG, but Roman Josi has been an absolute beast this season. Both have elite and near-identical plus/minus ratings as well, with Josi owning a plus-19 and Weber a plus-20 while playing in the same number of games (63). To make a long story short, Josi has officially shed the title of "Shea Weber's defense partner", emerging as a studly blueliner in his own right on the league's best team.
News: Nathan MacKinnon is believed to have suffered a broken nose in Saturday's game against the Wild, the Denver Post reports. Analysis: Nathan MacKinnon's injury likely stemmed from a hit laid on him by the Wild's Sean Bergenheim in the third period of Saturday's game. While broken noses can be painful, it is still something most players can play through, so it's quite possible MacKinnon will be back in the lineup for the team's next game Wednesday against the Penguins, but owners should keep an eye out for a status update prior to the opening faceoff.

He has rejoined the Flames, however, which likely indicates he will play again Tuesday.
