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: Tomas Jurco collected an assist in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Predators. Analysis: The 22-year-old might one day be a regular member of the Wings' top-six ranks, but his presence on the fourth line makes his present-day fantasy value minimal. He hasn't seen more than 12 minutes of ice time since Dec. 31, and unsurprising, he's notched only three points (all assists) since that time.
News: Maxime Talbot scored the Avs' lone goal in Saturday's loss to the Wild. Analysis: The goal was Maxime Talbot's first in a month, but his lack of ice time (7:47) in the game might be the more notable development. An inconsistent minutes count makes it hard to rely on Talbot for much more than the occasional point here or there, which simply isn't good enough to warrant ownership, even in most deep leagues.
News: Blake Wheeler (knee) was activated from injured reserve Sunday and will likely play against the Kings. Analysis: Blake Wheeler was placed on injured reserve retroactive to Feb. 21, meaning he will miss the minimum amount of time required prior to his return. The winger has 44 points in 61 games this season, adding another 67 penalty minutes to go along with a plus-12 rating. He should be good to go Sunday with the activation, especially considering the team reassigned Carl Klingberg to AHL St. John's.
News: Matt Irwin assisted on one of two Sharks goals in Saturday's loss to the Senators. Analysis: After often serving as a healthy scratch in the first three months of the season, Matt Irwin seems to have solidified a regular spot in the Sharks' lineup since the calendar flipped to 2015. He's chipped in four goals and three assists since the All-Star break to warrant some intrigue in deeper leagues, but his value is unlikely to extend beyond that.
