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.

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: Mark Stone has recorded two goals and six points in his last five games, giving him 39 points and a plus-11 rating in 58 games on the season.

Analysis: Mike Hoffman has recorded at least one point in all but two of his last 13 games and has scored six goals in his last eight games. He's simply on fire right now.

The second-line center is coming up huge for the surging Senators and now has 43 points in 60 games on the season.

Analysis: Erik Karlsson has been dazzling of late, with five of his last eight outings being multi-point games. He now has 15 goals and 47 points in 60 games on the season. Karlsson has been a key part of Ottawa's recent surge, as they now stand just five points out of a playoff spot.
