Eakin Assists On Both Dallas Goals Friday

News: Cody Eakin had an assist on both Dallas goals in Friday's 2-1 win over Calgary.
Analysis: That gives Cody Eakin 13 points on the season (6-7-13) and keeps him on pace to do just slightly better than last season, when he set personal records in goals, assists and shots.

Eakin Scores Power Play Marker For Stars

News: Cody Eakin had a power play goal on his only show in Saturday's 4-1 win over Montreal.
Analysis: Cody Eakin has bounced around some lines since late November as the Stars continue to search for three lines that can get going at the same time. The most regular combination has seen Eakin on the third line and he was back there Saturday -- with Ryan Garbutt and Antoine Roussel, even though he got a shot playing on the top line for a bit in November.

Stars' Eakin Taking Well To Top Line Gig

News: Cody Eakin chipped in two assists in Saturday's victory over the Sharks.
Analysis: Cody Eakin has fit in quite well while playing on the top line with Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin for the last three games, producing two goals and three assists. Given the immense talents of the two players flanking him, there's reason to think Eakin can continue producing at a decent rate while he remains on the top line. Those in search of forward help would be wise to take a flier on Eakin in the event coach Lindy Ruff decides to keep him with the top trio for the balance of the season.

Goals In Two Straight For Stars' Eakin

News: Cody Eakin scored a goal for the second consecutive game in Thursday's win over the Coyotes.
Analysis: After a nine-game scoring skid, Cody Eakin's found his offensive game again, but that's come along with mighty struggles in faceoffs -- he's won just 15 of 44 over the last two games. Still, most fantasy formats are more concerned with the points, and Eakin should put up enough of those to be viable in deep formats.

Cody Eakin

Two Points Tuesday For Stars' Eakin

News: Cody Eakin contributed a goal and assist in Tuesday's loss to the Hurricanes.
Analysis: Though the Stars ended up taking the loss, Cody Eakin's performance was impressive enough for coach Lindy Ruff to give him a look as the top-line center alongside Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin at Wednesday's practice, according to Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News. Eakin's assist Tuesday came on a Seguin goal, while Benn helped set up Eakin's third-period shorthanded marker. If trio can find similar success together Thursday against the Coyotes, Eakin could end up enjoying some long-term run on the top line.

Eakin (Upper Body) Will Play Thursday

News: Cody Eakin (upper body) was on the ice for warmups and will play Thursday against the Kings, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Cody Eakin was expected to return Thursday from an upper-body injury that caused him to miss three games, and that has now been confirmed. He will center the second line alongside Antoine Roussel and Ryan Garbutt.

Cody Eakin

Stars' Eakin Probable For Thursday

News: Cody Eakin (upper body) is considered probable to play Thursday against the Kings, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Cody Eakin was able to fully practice Wednesday, but coach Lindy Ruff wants to check him out at Thursday's morning skate before placing the forward back in his lineup. The 23-year-old has missed the last three games with the upper-body injury.

Eakin Out Tuesday, But Close To Return

News: Cody Eakin (upper body) won't play in Tuesday's game against the Coyotes, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Though Cody Eakin will miss his third straight game, coach Lindy Ruff noted the forward was very close to cracking the lineup, making Thursday's contest against the Kings a likely target date for his return. Curtis McKenzie seems likely to be displaced from the Dallas lineup once Eakin is ready to go.

Cody Eakin

Stars' Eakin Could Play Tuesday

News: Cody Eakin (upper body) could play Tuesday against the Coyotes, Mark Stepneski of the team's inside edge reports.
Analysis: Cody Eakin skated on his own prior to Monday's team practice, and could be in the lineup Tuesday. If he doesn't suit up, he should be ready for Thursday's game against the Kings at the latest.

Cody Eakin

Stars' Eakin Out Saturday

News: Cody Eakin (upper body) has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Sharks, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports.
Analysis: Cody Eakin has yet to resume skating since suffering the injury Tuesday against the Kings. He'll miss his second straight contest, with the newly recalled Curtis McKenzie stepping in to take his spot in the lineup.

Stars' Eakin Doubtful To Play Saturday

News: Cody Eakin (upper body) is doubtful to play Saturday against the Sharks, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Cody Eakin was a late scratch for Thursday's tilt after still feeling sore from the Stars' game on Tuesday. He wasn't able to return to the ice for Friday's practice, so it appears he'll need some more time to rest up before he's back to 100 percent health.

Stars' Eakin Out With Upper-Body Injury

News: Cody Eakin was not on the ice for warmups Thursday, and was ruled out with an upper-body injury, Mark Stepneski of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Cody Eakin took the ice for morning skate, making him a likely candidate to return from an upper-body ailment, but his lack of presence in warmups proves otherwise. He appears to be day-to-day, and should be a candidate to play in Saturday's game against the Sharks.

Stars' Eakin Takes Part In Morning Skate

News: Cody Eakin (undisclosed) took part in Thursday's morning skate, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' website reports.
Analysis: Cody Eakin did not practice Wednesday due to some soreness, but his participation in Thursday's morning session clears the way for him to play in the evening against the Predators.

Stars' Eakin Misses Practice

News: Cody Eakin missed Wednesday's practice after coach Lindy Ruff said the center was "banged up" following Tuesday's game, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports.
Analysis: Ruff indicated that he still expected Cody Eakin to play Thursday against the Predators, so it sounds like his absence from practice Wednesday can be treated as a maintenance day. Eakin has two goals and four points over 12 games this season.

Eakin Grabs Point In Stars' First Win

News: Cody Eakin had an assist, a plus-1 rating and four shots in Tuesday's win over Columbus.
Analysis: Cody Eakin had a strong game and is looking good in the early going. He has a goal, an assist, a plus-3 rating and an average of three shots per game through the season's first three contests.

Stars' Eakin Pots Goal In Loss

News: Cody Eakin notched a goal in Thursday's season opener against the Blackhawks.
Analysis: A contract dispute that kept Cody Eakin out of training camp until the final week didn't seem to hurt him too much, as he tied for the team lead with four shots on goal in his 18:31 of action. He'll have a good chance at replicating 35-point production he supplied in 2013-14.

Stars Ink Eakin To Two-Year Contract

News: Cody Eakin agreed to a two-year contract with the Stars on Monday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports. The contract is reportedly worth $3.8 million, according to Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: The Blues' recent signing of Jaden Schwartz likely established the framework for Cody Eakin and the Stars to get a deal done, after the two sides had been locked in a stalemate for most of the summer. Eakin will need to catch up on some conditioning work to make up for the time he lost in camp, but he should be ready to settle in as the Stars' third-line center before the regular season commences.

Cody Eakin

No Contract Yet For Stars' Eakin

News: Cody Eakin hasn't made much progress in reaching agreement on a contract with the Stars, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Both sides will continue to work diligently to come to terms on a new deal before the Oct. 9 opener, but Cody Eakin's ongoing absence from training camp could result in a reduced minutes load in his first few games. The 23-year-old, who finished fourth on the Stars in scoring last season with 35 points in 81 games, will slot in as the team's third-line center once the contract squabble is resolved.

Eakin Still Un-signed In Dallas

News: Cody Eakin, a restricted free agent, is still without a contract in Dallas and Dallas GM Jim Nill said Friday that little progress has been made toward a new deal, according to Mark Stepneski of NHL.com.
Analysis: Cody Eakin figures to get a good role on the Stars third line and a deal is likely to get worked out before opening night, but the time frame is worrisome as far as Eakin getting to camp on time. As Nill points out, Eakin can't play for a few days after a deal is signed because he'll still have to sort out immigration after the deal is put in place. Could be an issue for the team, but a late contract signing isn't likely to effect Eakin's fantasy value.

Stars' Spezza Trade Likely Moves Eakin Down Lineup

News: With the acquisition of center Jason Spezza on Tuesday, Cody Eakins will likely move down the depth chart to third line center.
Analysis: Cody Eakins had a chance of being the second line center in Dallas, but with Spezza in the lineup that chance may have evaporated. This is great news for Dallas, who will have three scoring lines, but it hurts Eakins' fantasy draft value as it will limit his playing time and give him less to work with on wing.

Eakin Gets Qualifying Offer From Stars

News: Cody Eakin received a qualifying offer from the Stars on Monday, making it likely that he'll be returning to Dallas.
Analysis: This is hardly a surprise after Cody Eakin finished tied for fourth on the team in scoring with 16 goals and 19 assists. He also tied for second among Stars in playoff scoring, notching two goals and three assists. Eakin's role for next season remains up in the air, though, as the Stars are seeking a second-line center via free agency or trade. If they fail to land one, the job could be Eakin's, which would be a boon for his fantasy value.

Eakins' Two Points Not Enough As Stars Fall

News: Cody Eakin provided a goal and assist in Sunday's Game 6 loss to the Ducks.
Analysis: Cody Eakins' first-period power-play goal -- his second tally of the series -- gave the Stars an early 2-0 lead, an advantage that would hold up until the final three minutes of the game, with the Ducks mounting a furious rally to send the match to overtime. Eakin finishes the playoffs with two goals and three assists over his six games.

Eakin Has Assist In Dallas Win

News: Cody Eakin had an assist and went plus-1 in 17:49 of ice time in Monday's Game 3 win over Anaheim.
Analysis: Cody Eakin has two assists in the postseason so far. He's getting good ice time, but you can't expect much more than this from the 22-year-old.

Eakin Gets Game-Winner For Dallas

News: Cody Eakin nabbed the game-winner, adding an assist, a plus-2 rating, and three shots in Saturday's win over the Blues.
Analysis: That's goals in back-to-back games for Cody Eakin, who has 16 goals and 18 assists on the season.

Stars' Eakin Scores 15th Goal During Win Friday

News: Cody Eakin scored his 15th goal of the season as the Stars beat the Predators 7-3 on Friday.
Analysis: Cody Eakin joined the party just eight seconds after Valeri Nichushkin scored in the third period and became the seventh member of the Stars to find the net during this game. With 15 goals and 17 assists, the second-year center is helping to establish a strong youth movement in Dallas that should be effective for some time.
