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.

Derek Dorsett

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.

Derek Dorsett

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.

Derek Dorsett

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.

Derek Dorsett

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.

Derek Dorsett

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.

Derek Dorsett

Rangers' Dorsett Out For Thursday

News: Derek Dorsett (lower leg) will not play Thursday against the Blackhawks, Newsday's Steve Zipay reports.
Analysis: Derek Dorsett has been skating for the last week since suffering a broken leg Jan. 3, but coach Alain Vigneault doesn't want to bring him back into the fold just yet with the team's bottom-six forwards playing well. Vigneault wants Dorsett to get in one more full practice, after which he'll likely be activated and slot back into the lineup.

Rangers' Dorsett Progressing

News: Derek Dorsett (fibula) went through contact during Tuesday's practice, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: Derek Dorsett is hoping to play Thursday against Chicago, but that's no lock just yet, with coach Alain Vigneault indicating that recalling a forward from AHL Hartford in advance of that contest is still a possibility.

Rangers' Dorsett Dons Contact Jersey Monday

News: Derek Dorsett (lower leg) was wearing a full-contact jersey during Monday's practice, Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: It's yet another positive sign that Derek Dorsett will be available for the Rangers' first game out of the break Thursday vs. the Blackhawks. Coach Alain Vigneault said the Rangers would officially declare his status for Thursday following Tuesday's practice.

Derek Dorsett

Rangers' Dorsett Back On Ice Thursday

News: Derek Dorsett practiced in a non-contact capacity Thursday, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.
Analysis: It was the first time Derek Dorsett was able to join his teammates on the ice since breaking his fibula in early January, so he'll probably still need to practice on multiple occasions before being activated from IR. It would appear he's progressing as the Rangers expected, and coach Alain Vigneault said Dorsett "should be close, if not ready to play" next Thursday against the Blackhawks.

More X-Rays On Tap For Rangers' Dorsett

News: Derek Dorsett (lower leg) will undergo further X-rays Friday.
Analysis: Coach Alain Vigneault indicated that Derek Dorsett is progressing well and remains "on schedule to play" after the Olympics. He's been out since Jan 3 with a broken fibula.

Rangers' Dorsett Out 4-6 Weeks With Broken Fibula

News: Derek Dorsett will be out for four to six weeks with a broken fibula, according to Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record.
Analysis: Derek Dorsett suffered the injury while blocking a a slap shot by Pittsburgh's Ollie Maatta in the first period of Friday's game and, obviously, never returned. He's a role player whose biggest fantasy asset is his current tally of 103 penalty minutes, so owners will have to find another enforcer to help them out for the time being. The Rangers will likely place Dorsett on injured reserve Saturday and make a corresponding move then.

Derek Dorsett

Rangers' Dorsett Will Play Tuesday

News: Derek Dorsett (wrist) will play Tuesday against the Predators, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: Derek Dorsett checked out fine during morning skate and will draw back into the lineup for the first time in three games. He'll be ticketed for fourth-line duty and won't see enough ice time to be a useful contributor in most fantasy leagues.

Derek Dorsett

Rangers' Dorsett Returns To Practice Tuesday

News: Derek Dorsett (wrist) was on the ice for Tuesday's morning skate, ESPN.com's Katie Strang reports.
Analysis: No word yet on whether or not Derek Dorsett will actually play Tuesday vs. the Predators, but his presence back on the ice would seem to bode well for his return. He's missed the previous three games due to injury.

Derek Dorsett

Rangers' Dorsett Will Not Play Sunday

News: Derek Dorsett (wrist) will not play Sunday against the Capitals.
Analysis: A sprained wrist will keep Derek Dorsett from a third consecutive game Sunday, and his status for Tuesday is up in the air at the moment, but a recent MRI indicated the injury is not overly serious.
