Three Points For Orcas' Dorsett: #CareerNight

News: Derek Dorsett played Leaf killer Saturday night. He scored the game-winning goal and added two assists in a 4-1 win.
Analysis: It was also a career night -- it was his first-ever three-point game in the NHL. He'd had a handful of two-point efforts in his career, but three points had proven elusive over the previous 395 games. His fantasy value is restricted, but he does have a career-best 22 points this season while deliver 150 PIM. There's real value in that.

Canucks' Dorsett Registers Assist Monday

News: Derek Dorsett registered an assist in Monday's win over the Ducks.
Analysis: Derek Dorsett has seen his minutes count climb in recent games, but it likely won't lead to any sort of notable scoring outburst. Instead, the increased time on ice will likely only result in the potential for more hits and PIM, which carries weight primarily in specialty formats.

Canucks' Dorsett (Neck) Playing Sunday

News: Derek Dorsett (neck) is in the lineup Sunday against the Wild.
Analysis: Derek Dorsett took part in Saturday's practice, making it a decent bet he would return to the lineup. That is indeed the case, as he will look to add to his 14-point total he carries into the contest.

Canucks' Dorsett Returns To Practice

News: Derek Dorsett (neck) took part in Saturday's practice, Jon Abbott of TSN Radio Vancouver reports.
Analysis: Derek Dorsett appeared to be a full participant in his first practice since suffering the injury Wednesday against the Ducks, taking part in battle drills with the team's other healthy skaters. Coach Willie Desjardins indicated Dorsett will be a possible lineup option for Sunday's game against the Wild, but his status likely won't be known until the Canucks hold pregame warmups.

Canucks' Dorsett Expected To Sit Out Friday

News: Coach Willie Desjardins said Thursday that he expects Derek Dorsett (neck) to be unavailable for Friday's game against the Sabres.
Analysis: Derek Dorsett was absent from Thursday's practice, with Desjardins speculating that the forward would be "out for a bit." His next opportunity to play would come Feb. 1, but he'll likely need to return to the ice before that time in some capacity to have a legitimate shot at suiting up.

Canucks' Dorsett Departs With Injury Tuesday

News: Derek Dorsett exited Tuesday's game against the Ducks in the second period following a collision with Ryan Kesler, Ben Kuzma of The Province reports. He didn't return to the game.
Analysis: Derek Dorsett appeared to make knee-to-knee contact with Kesler while also taking an arm to the head. While Dorsett isn't a major offensive contributor for the Canucks, the grit he brings to the fourth line gives the team a needed edge. If Dorsett is out for an extended period of time, it would leave the Canucks with a major void in the physicality department, as like-minded players Brad Richardson (ankle) and Kevin Bieksa (broken left hand) are also nursing injuries.

Dorsett Scores Shortie For Canucks' Lone Goal

News: Derek Dorsett scored the Canucks' only goal Tuesday, finding twine shorthanded in the second period for his fourth tally of the season.
Analysis: With 10 points on the year now, Derek Dorsett's exceeded his total from each of the past two seasons. If he can stay healthy -- which is always an issue -- he could make a run at a new career high, although that's a low bar, given that his current high is 20 points, set in 2011-12 with the Jackets.

Canucks' Dorsett Racks Up PIM In Win

News: Derek Dorsett picked up 15 PIM in Sunday's loss to the Senators.
Analysis: Derek Dorsett now has 66 PIM on the season -- second most in the NHL. With three goals and nine points in 26 games, Dorsett is a decent option in deeper formats. He could reach the 30-point barrier in his first season with Vancouver.

Canucks' Dorsett Pots Third Of Season

News: Derek Dorsett scored his third goal of the season in Tuesday's win over Washington.
Analysis: Derek Dorsett now has nine points in 23 games this season, to go with a fantasy relevant 51 PIM. While it's nice to see the fourth-liner appearing on the scoresheet, keep in mind Dorsett is a bottom-six player for a reason. While he may not be valuable in shallow formats, the fact Dorsett is playing with Bo Horvat and Jannik Hansen makes him worthy of a look in some very deep leagues. He could reach the 30-point mark for the first time in his career this season.

Canucks' Dorsett Collects Two Assists

News: Derek Dorsett picked up a pair of assists and went plus-3 in Sunday's win over the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Derek Dorsett now has three assists in his last two games and is plus-4 in that span. Not known as a big point producer, Dorsett has managed two goals and eight points in 19 games this season, putting him on pace for the first 30-point campaign of his career.

Dorsett (Undisclosed) Expected To Play Friday

News: Derek Dorsett (undisclosed) practiced Friday and seems likely to play Friday against the Coyotes.
Analysis: Derek Dorsett returned to practice Thursday and participated again Friday, making him a likely candidate to return to the lineup. The injury caused him to miss two games, though the team never specified the nature. He is expected to join the fourth line alongside Linden Vey and Jannik Hansen.

Canucks' Dorsett Practices

News: Derek Dorsett (undisclosed) resumed practicing Thursday, Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Derek Dorsett occupied his usual role on the fourth line with Bo Horvat and Jannik Hansen during practice, making it likely that he'll be cleared to play Friday against the Coyotes. Coach Willie Desjardins will probably reexamine the conditions of Dorsett and Radim Vrbata (leg) at Friday's morning skate before finalizing any lineup decisions.

Canucks Rule Dorsett Out Tuesday

News: Derek Dorsett (undisclosed) will not be in the lineup Tuesday against the Senators, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: None of the Canucks' five injured skaters felt well enough to take part in the team's morning skate, so coach Willie Desjardins will stick with the same lineup he used Sunday against the Ducks. With Derek Dorsett unavailable, the recently recalled Brandon DeFazio will make his second career NHL appearance as a member of the Canucks' bottom six.

Canucks Dorsett (Undisclosed) Doubtful Sunday

News: Derek Dorsett is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Ducks with an undisclosed injury, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: Derek Dorsett reportedly left Saturday's game against the Kings because of the injury, and it will likely hold him out Sunday as well. Brandon DeFazio was recalled from AHL Utica and would probably dress in his place if he can't go.

Canucks' Dorsett (Undisclosed) Out Sunday

News: Derek Dorsett (undisclosed) will not play Sunday against the Ducks, Eric Stephens of the OC Register reports.
Analysis: As expected, Derek Dorsett will sit out Sunday after sustaining an undisclosed injury Saturday against the Kings. Recent call-up Brandon DeFazio will likely dress in his place.

Dorsett Powers Canucks Past Oilers

News: Derek Dorsett registered a shorthanded goal, an assist, four shots on goal, and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's win over Edmonton.
Analysis: Not known as a big point producer, Derek Dorsett has still managed four points (one goal) in 11 games this season. Skating on the fourth line, Dorsett sees limited ice time and no power-play time, making him unappealing to fantasy goers. He has never surpassed 20 points in his career, so don't expect a big offensive breakout at age 27.

Rangers Trade Dorsett To The Canucks

News: The Rangers traded Derek Dorsett to the Canucks on Friday in exchange for a third-round pick, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
Analysis: Derek Dorsett appeared in just 51 games for the Rangers during the 2013-14 campaign, but he has played at least that many games at the NHL level in five of the last six seasons. He will likely slot in as a third- or fourth-line forward with the Canucks.

Rangers' Dorsett Quiet in Loss

News: Derek Dorsett played over 17-minutes in Saturday's Game 2, double overtime loss to Los Angeles.
Analysis: Of course the circumstance of double overtime was the main factor in Derek Dorsett logging a season-high in minutes. The 6-foot scraper also logged two shots on goal and a plus-1 in 28 shifts. The fourth line winger has just one point and 19 penalty minutes through 20 games this post season.

Rangers Scratch Dorsett In Game 3

News: Derek Dorsett was a healthy scratch for Monday's Game 3 loss to the Penguins.
Analysis: The Rangers were looking for a more offensive look with J.T. Miller and Jesper Fast in place of Derek Dorsett and Dan Carcillo. Dorsett has zero points and just seven shots on goal in nine playoff games this year, and in fact has only one career postseason point (an assist) in 23 contests.

Rangers' Dorsett Slumping

News: Derek Dorsett has been shut out through four postseason games against the Flyers.
Analysis: With 20 points being his most productive season to date, there's not a lot of surprise here. It's the four penalty minutes for a checking-line winger - in what has been a feisty series - that has to leave you scratching your head. Then again, the veteran right winger is averaging under 10 minutes a game and has never really been a big fantasy play outside of those leagues that reward hits and penalty minutes.

Rangers' Dorsett Taking Warm-Ups

News: Derek Dorsett (illness) will participate in pregame warm-ups Monday night, Katie Strang of ESPN reports.
Analysis: Derek Dorsett is still officially a game-time decision, but it's a good sign that he's on the ice for warm-ups. The winger has three goals, two assists, and 105 PIM in 41 games on the season.

Rangers' Dorsett Out With Flu Saturday

News: Derek Dorsett (illness) will not play Saturday vs. the Devils.
Analysis: Derek Dorsett is feeling the effects of the flu and will take Saturday off to rest. Daniel Carcillo fills his spot on the fourth line.

Rangers' Dorsett To Be Healthy Scratch Friday

News: Derek Dorsett will be a healthy scratch for Friday's matchup against the Blue Jackets, the Columbus Dispatch's Shawn Mitchell reports.
Analysis: Derek Dorsett, a former Blue Jacket, has played in just three games this March and remains buried at the bottom of the Rangers' depth chart.

Rangers' Dorsett Scratched Against Bruins

News: Derek Dorsett will serve as a healthy scratch on Sunday versus the Bruins, reports Andrew Gross of The Bergen Record.
Analysis: The 27-year-old, who returned to the lineup from a leg injury on Saturday registered a minus-1 rating in just under nine minutes of time against Philadelphia. In addition to not wanting to start his scrappy winger on back-to-back nights, head coach Alain Vigneault said he wants to give Derek Dorsett a chance to get his timing back.

Rangers' Dorsett Returns To Ice Saturday

News: Derek Dorsett will make his return to the ice Saturday against the Flyers after an 18-game absence, Jim Cerny of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Derek Dorsett had been out with a lower-leg injury and was actually expected to return Thursday. The Rangers held him out for one more game just to be sure. He's probably good to get back into your lineups this week.
