Matt Hendricks

Oilers' Hendricks Playing Thursday

News: Matt Hendricks (leg) is playing in Thursday's game against the Sabres.
Analysis: Matt Hendricks left Tuesday's game after taking a Shea Weber slap shot to the leg, but he won't miss any time beyond the initial absence. With seven points in 65 games, he hasn't done much for fantasy owners this season, outside of the 86 PIM.

Matt Hendricks

Oilers' Hendricks Exits With Leg Injury

News: Matt Hendricks (leg) will not return to Tuesday night's game, the Oilers' official site reports.
Analysis: Not much is currently known about the condition of Matt Hendricks' injury, except for the fact that he won't return to the ice on Tuesday. Luke Gazdic might see more run as a result.

Oilers' Hendricks Suits Up Saturday

News: Matt Hendricks (head) skated 15:37 in Saturday's loss to the Bruins.
Analysis: Just an FYI here as Matt Hendricks left the Oilers' most recent game Wednesday with a head injury. He should be a mainstay in the Edmonton lineup moving forward and will offer most of his fantasy utility in the hits category.

Matt Hendricks

Oilers' Hendricks Leaves With Injury

News: Matt Hendricks left Wednesday's game against the Sharks with a head injury and will not return.
Analysis: Matt Hendricks took a five-minute major at the end of the first period following a fight with San Jose's Mike Brown. He did not take another shift after the fight and likely sustained some sort of head injury in the encounter. For now, consider him day-to-day with the injury.

Matt Hendricks

Hendricks Scores First Goal With Edmonton

News: Matt Hendricks scored his third goal of the season during Friday's loss to the Coyotes on Friday.
Analysis: The goal was Matt Hendricks' first since being acquired from Nashville late last week. It's been a slow season for the 32-year-old center who now has just three goals and two assists through 48 games this season.

Matt Hendricks

Preds Ship Hendricks To Oilers

News: Matt Hendricks was traded to the Oilers on Wednesday in exchange for goalie Devan Dubnyk, Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada reports.
Analysis: At 32 years old, Matt Hendricks doesn't exactly help the Oilers' rebuild efforts, but his skills on the checking line will be a welcome addition to one of the league's worst defenses. Hendricks' main fantasy output comes in the form of penalty minutes (54 PIM in 44 games) and hits (96), as he offers little in the way of scoring.

1/2/2014

Matt Hendricks, C, EDM Preds' Hendricks Contributing Off Score Sheet

Matt Hendricks

Preds' Hendricks Contributing Off Score Sheet

News: Matt Hendricks has zero points in his last nine games, and just three points in 36 games overall.
Analysis: Matt Hendricks is way more valuable to the Preds as a checking-line grinder than he is to fantasy owners. He currently ranks second on the team in PIM (52) and third in hits (74), so unless your league counts these secondary stat categories, Hendricks will just be taking up space on your roster.

Matt Hendricks

Preds' Hendricks Triples Season Point Total

News: Matt Hendricks scored his second goal of the year and collected his first assist Tuesday against the Rangers, tripling his point total from one to three on the season.
Analysis: Matt Hendricks scored his other goal way back on Halloween -- apparently, his "scoring forward" costume was a rental -- but has at least managed to chip in some decent penalty minutes and hits, as he usually does.

12/8/2013

Matt Hendricks, C, EDM

Matt Hendricks

Preds' Hendricks' Contributions Coming Off Scoresheet

News: Matt Hendricks has just a single point through 26 games so far this season.
Analysis: With 25 points and 110 PIM for the Capitals in 2010-11, Matt Hendricks was viewed as a third-line energy guy who could chip in offensively on a semi-regular basis. However, with just 18 points in 152 games since then, his production has tailed off considerably. Instead, Hendricks finds himself contributing in other ways, particularly by playing a more physical game (third on the team in hits with 53), blocking shots (ninth on the team with 20) and killing penalties (third in shorthanded ice time with 2:32). If your fantasy league rewards for these secondary categories, then Hendricks is your guy. Otherwise there is no point in owning him.

Preds' Hendricks Injured Again

News: Matt Hendricks (undisclosed) left during the third period of Sunday's game against New Jersey and did not return, according to the Associated Press.
Analysis: Matt Hendricks, who had just returned to the lineup following a three-game absence due to an upper-body injury, departed after delivering a bodycheck to the Devils' Eric Gelinas. At this point, it's unclear whether this is a brand new ailment or he's simply aggravated his previous injury. Consider him day-to-day for the time being.

Preds' Hendricks Now Unlikely To Play Until Sunday

News: Updating a previous report, Matt Hendricks (upper body) is now unlikely to play until Sunday vs. the Devils, according to Joshua Cooper of The Tennessean.
Analysis: Cooper previously reported that Matt Hendricks was probable for Friday's contest vs. the Jets, but coach Barry Trotz seems more content to give the forward some additional rest to make sure he's close to 100 percent for Sunday. With just one point in 13 games this season, Hendricks isn't the type of player that the Predators would willingly trot out at less-than-optimal health.

Matt Hendricks, C, EDM

Matt Hendricks

Preds' Hendricks Probable For Friday

News: Matt Hendricks (upper body) is probable to play Friday vs. the Jets, Josh Cooper of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Coach Barry Trotz confirmed the good news after Matt Hendricks was able to practice fully Thursday. He's missed the last two games due to the upper-body injury.

11/6/2013

Matt Hendricks, C, EDM

Matt Hendricks

Preds' Hendricks Out Wednesday

News: Matt Hendricks (upper body) will not play Wednesday vs. the Avalanche, the Tennessean's Josh Cooper reports.
Analysis: Matt Hendricks is traveling with the Predators and did take part in Wednesday's pregame skate, but still needs to get some more practice time under his belt before playing. Prior to Wednesday, he had been off the ice for nearly a week after sustaining the injury in a game last Thursday vs. the Coyotes.

Matt Hendricks

Preds' Hendricks Skates

News: Matt Hendricks (upper body) skated with the team Wednesday morning, Joshua Cooper of the Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Matt Hendricks made a surprise return to the team after leaving their road trip earlier this week with the injury. There's no word on his status for Wednesday's matchup with the Avs, but it seems unlikely that he will be able to suit up.

Matt Hendricks

Preds' Hendricks Skips Practice Tuesday

News: Matt Hendricks (upper body) did not participate in Tuesday's practice, Joshua Cooper of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Though he failed to skate Tuesday, Matt Hendricks will still travel with the team to Denver in advance of Wednesday's matchup vs. the Avalanche. It's still uncertain whether or not he'll suit up for the game, but the Predators should clear up his status during morning skate.

Matt Hendricks

Preds' Hendricks Will Not Play Saturday

News: Matt Hendricks will not accompany his teammates to Los Angeles for Saturday's game against the Kings, the Tennessean's Joshua Cooper reports.
Analysis: Matt Hendricks is being reevaluated and an update is expected Saturday. He suffered the injury during the first period of Thursday's game against Phoenix.

Matt Hendricks, C, EDM

Matt Hendricks

Preds' Hendricks Exits With Upper Body Injury

News: Matt Hendricks left Thursday's game with an upper-body injury and will not return, the Tennessean's Joshua Cooper reports.
Analysis: The good news for fantasy owners is that Matt Hendricks netted his first goal of the season prior to exiting the game. He's only worth owning in the very deepest of leagues, as he's scored just 18 points since the beginning of the 2011-12 campaign.

Matt Hendricks, C, EDM Preds' Hendricks Still Looking For First Point

Matt Hendricks

Preds' Hendricks Still Looking For First Point

News: Matt Hendricks' ice time was a season-low 10:17 during Saturday's 6-1 loss to the Blues. He also failed to hit the scoresheet for the 12th straight game.
Analysis: Matt Hendricks recorded a career-best 25 points three seasons ago, but put up a grand total of just 17 points over the next two seasons combined. Currently in his checking-line role with the Preds, he is certainly not on pace to set any new records for himself this season. His fantasy value is about as close to zero as you can get, in just about all formats.

Matt Hendricks

Hendricks Heads To Nashville

News: Matt Hendricks signed a four-year, $7.4 million contract with Nashville on Friday, according to CBC's Elliotte Friedman.
Analysis: Matt Hendricks is a versatile forward who has had limited offensive output the last four seasons, averaging close to seven goals his last four campaigns in Washington.

Matt Hendricks

Caps' Hendricks To Test Free Agency

News: Matt Hendricks' agent says the Capitals haven't reached out to the forward regarding extension talks and Hendricks is expected to be a fee agent on July 5, according to Katie Carerra of The Washington Post.
Analysis: The Capitals have 11 forwards under contact next season, along with a few prospects who have shown near-NHL potential. Matt Hendricks had eight points on five goals and three assists in 48 games last year. He is expected to have a number of suitors this offseason.

Matt Hendricks

Capitals' Hendricks Returns To Practice Minus Teeth

News: Matt Hendricks returned to Saturday's practice after a puck knocked some of his teeth out, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: Matt Hendricks left the ice for a little while, but it's probably safe to assume that he will play Sunday, given that a few missing teeth couldn't even keep him from practicing.

Matt Hendricks

Capitals' Hendricks Suffers Facial Injury

News: Matt Hendricks left Saturday's practice after suffering an injury to his face, the Winnipeg Sun's Ken Wiebe reports.
Analysis: Matt Hendricks was likely hit in the face, which probably won't keep him out for Sunday's Game 6 against the Rangers. Consider him day-to-day for now.

Capitals' Hendricks Returns To Action

News: Matt Hendricks was able to return to Tuesday's game after leaving with an upper-body injury, Katie Carrera of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Matt Hendricks left the game briefly, but it appears the team medical staff did not find anything that would prevent him from resuming action. Hendricks may be a bit sore Wednesday, but expect him to be good to go for the Capitals' next game Thursday.

Capitals' Hendricks Suffers Upper-Body Injury

News: Matt Hendricks sustained an upper-body injury in Tuesday's game, Katie Carrera of the Washington Post reports.

News: Matt Hendricks said his hand is fine and he is ready to go Sunday against the Sabres, Katie Carrera of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Matt Hendricks had been dealing with a hand injury, but he appears to be fine going forward. While he will play Sunday, he has just six points in 27 games this season.
