Two More Points For Preds' Josi

News: Roman Josi dished out a pair of helpers in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Red Wings.
Analysis: Can you believe this guy has three more points than Shea Weber? Of course, Weber has four more goals, 46 more PIM and 40 more SOG, but Roman Josi has been an absolute beast this season. Both have elite and near-identical plus/minus ratings as well, with Josi owning a plus-19 and Weber a plus-20 while playing in the same number of games (63). To make a long story short, Josi has officially shed the title of "Shea Weber's defense partner", emerging as a studly blueliner in his own right on the league's best team.

Josi's Big Game Boosts Preds

News: Roman Josi rattled off a goal, a shorthanded assist on an empty-netter and a plus-3 rating Tuesday against Colorado.
Analysis: He hadn't scored a goal in more than two weeks, dating back to Feb. 7, but Roman Josi's remained consistently productive even when not finding twine. With 11 goals, 44 points and a plus-20 rating, he's been one of the finest fantasy blueliners around.

Preds' Josi Gets Two Helpers In Loss

News: Roman Josi picked up his 31st and 32nd assists of the season Thursday in a 5-2 loss to the Isles.
Analysis: He helped Nashville mount a comeback attempt from a 3-0 deficit, but the Preds just couldn't make up enough ground. Roman Josi had gone two straight games without registering on the scoresheet -- a rarity for him these days. The two points also pushed him off a tie with last year's total of 40, so he'll be building a new career high from here on out.

Preds' Josi Stays Hot Thursday

News: Roman Josi picked up a pair of power-play assists Thursday in a 3-1 win over Winnipeg.
Analysis: He got the primary helper on man-advantage tallies by Shea Weber and Filip Forsberg, continuing the Swiss defender's recent onslaught of scoring. He has 12 points in his last 10 games -- now that's hot.

Roman Josi

Preds' Josi Adds Two Points Saturday

News: Roman Josi blasted his 10th goal of the season and added an assist in Saturday afternoon's win over the Rangers. He now has a four-game point streak and nine points in the last seven games.
Analysis: The Swiss blueliner made the most of his bobblehead giveaway day in this one, bringing his point total to an eye-opening 37 in 52 games this year to go with a tidy plus-14 rating and 128 shots on goal. Roman Josi is emerging before our eyes as more than just "Shea Weber's defense partner"; he's a hot fantasy commodity in his own right this season. Props to you if you had the foresight to acquire him.

Roman Josi

Preds' Josi Stays Sizzling Thursday

News: Roman Josi contributed a power-play assist and four shots on goal in Thursday's loss to the Ducks.
Analysis: Roman Josi took a minus-2 for the evening, but it won't put a damper on what has been an impressive offensive showing in recent days, and really, all season. He's tallied a point in five of his last six games, recording two goals and five assists during that span.

Roman Josi

Preds' Josi Contributes Two Points

News: Roman Josi contributed a goal and assist in Sunday's win over the Penguins.
Analysis: With 33 points on the season, Roman Josi now sits in a three-way tie for 10th place league-wide in defenseman scoring. And only two defensive duos (Calgary's Mark Giordano and T.J. Brodie, and St. Louis' Kevin Shattenkirk and ALex Pietrangelo) have produced more offense than Josi and partner Shea Weber, both of whom have keyed the Preds' emergence as a Western Conference power.

Josi Chips In Two Helpers For Preds

News: Roman Josi picked up two assists -- one shorthanded, the other on a power play -- and went plus-1 Thursday in a shootout loss to the Blues.
Analysis: Roman Josi just keeps on rolling along, having collected three points in two games since the All-Star break. He's going to easily break 50 points this year if he avoids a dramatic slowdown, and there's no reason to think that his scoring rate should decrease as the year goes on.

Preds' Josi Notches Goal In Win Over Avs

News: Roman Josi scored his eighth goal of the season during Tuesday's OT win over the Avalanche.
Analysis: After a slow start to the season (just three points in his first 12 games), Roman Josi is now just one point away from hitting the 30-point mark, and just 11 points away from his career-high 40 points from last year. He continues to see heavy minutes on the Preds' first blue line pairing alongside Shea Weber, so expect him to continue hitting the scoresheet with regularity.

Preds' Josi Helps Out In Win

News: Roman Josi picked up two assists, blocked three shots and went plus-1 Thursday in an overtime win against Dallas.
Analysis: Just another fine offensive effort for Roman Josi, who's really been pouring it on of late. He's racked up a cool dozen points in his last 10 games, and owners in leagues that count blocks have been helped in that category as well.

Preds' Josi The Hero In Wild OT Win

News: Roman Josi provided the game-winning goal in the Preds' 7-6 overtime triumph of the Kings on Saturday afternoon. He also added an assist on his team's first goal of the contest.
Analysis: Though the blueliner found himself on the ice for five Kings goals to finish minus-3 on the day, he came up clutch when it mattered most. After the Kings had recaptured momentum with a furious comeback from a three-goal deficit with three minutes remaining in the third period, Roman Josi found the net on the first shot of the extra period to quiet the Staples Center denizens. Performances like this haven't been unprecedented from the young blueliner, who has been every bit as good as defensive partner Shea Weber of late. The 24-year-old has recorded three goals and six assists over his last seven contests.

Preds' Josi Builds Point Streak

News: Roman Josi collected an assist and finished with a plus-1 rating in Tuesday's win over the Blues.
Analysis: While Shea Weber's hot play of late has captured most of the attention, his defensive partner isn't doing too shabby for himself, either. Roman Josi has two goals, five assists, eight PIM and 16 shots on goal over his last six games, making him one of the most valuable fantasy blueliners out there during that time.

Roman Josi

Preds' Josi Collects Two Assists

News: Roman Josi picked up two assists and was credited with four PIM in Saturday's win over Philadelphia.
Analysis: Roman Josi now has five points in his past four games, putting him at 20 points (four goals) in 34 games on the season. Skating on the first defensive pairing and top power-play unit with Shea Weber, the 24-year-old has been a fantasy gem, scoring two power-play goals, recording a plus-12 rating, and firing 80 shots on goal. Dating back to November, Josi has never gone more than two games without recording a point. His consistency and 26:21 of average ice time makes him a must-own in almost all fantasy formats.

Preds' Josi Scores Third Goal

News: Roman Josi scored his third goal of the season, added an assist, and logged 27:20 of ice time in Saturday's overtime win over the Wild.
Analysis: Roman Josi now has four goals and 17 points in 31 games, to go with a plus-10 rating. The 24-year-old logs heavy minutes in Nashville and is money alongside Shea Weber on the top defensive pairing and first power-play unit. The youngster should hit the 10-goal and 40-point mark for the second straight season.

Roman Josi

Preds' Josi Heating Up

News: Roman Josi recorded an assist during Saturday's 2-1 win over Columbus. It was his 12th point of the season and second in as many games.
Analysis: After being held off the scoresheet in 10 of his first 12 games, Roman Josi has really come alive over the past few weeks with nine points in his last 11 contests. Unsurprisingly, Josi's productivity seems to rise and fall in tandem with that of his blue line partner Shea Weber, who also has nine points in his last 11 games. Bottom line, as long as Josi continues to be paired with Weber, and is seeing his usual 25+ minutes of ice time per night, there is no reason to take him out of your starting lineup.

Preds' Josi Collects Three Points

News: Roman Josi scored his first goal in more than a month -- a power-play tally -- and added two helpers in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Blues.
Analysis: Despite a pretty quiet start to the year, Roman Josi's now pulled his numbers right into the range that's expected from him -- eight points in 16 games. We're still looking for a little more shooting -- and of course scoring -- from the Swiss blueliner, but it's hard to complain about his season line so far despite some inconsistency.

Josi Chipping In On Offense For Preds

News: Roman Josi registered an assist for the second straight game during Saturday's 2-1 win over St. Louis. He now has five points in 14 games on the season.
Analysis: Given the amount of ice time he sees (usually 25-26 minutes per game), Roman Josi should have more fantasy appeal than he does, but keep in mind the Preds are still one of the lowest-scoring teams in the NHL at just 2.43 goals per game (23rd in the league). That said, after notching just three points in his first 12 games, it looks like Josi is finally starting to heat up, so take advantage while the point streak lasts.

Preds' Josi Tallies Two Helpers

News: Roman Josi picked up two assists -- his first and second of the season -- in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Oilers. He also skated to a plus-2 rating and put a season-high five shots on goal.
Analysis: Roman Josi's owners have been itching to see more out of Shea Weber's defense partner (both at even strength and on the man advantage), so it was nice that Josi tripled his point total in this one. He now has a goal, two assists and a plus-5 rating with no PIM in nine games this year.

Preds' Josi Scores Goal, Logs 23:37 Of ice Time

News: Roman Josi scored his first goal of the season, recorded a plus-4 rating, and logged a game-high 23:37 of ice time in Saturday's win over Dallas.
Analysis: Roman Josi has been lining up beside Shea Weber on the team's top defensive pairing and top power-play unit, making him a hot fantasy commodity. Josi, who recorded a career-high 13 goals and 40 points last season, is likely to have another successful fantasy campaign in 2014-15. You can't go wrong with a 24-year-old stud who is logging 23-28 minutes of ice time and playing with one of the best blueliners in the game.

Preds' Josi Logging Heavy Minutes In Preseason

News: Roman Josi saw 24:50 in ice time -- including over five minutes on the power play -- in Saturday's 3-2 preseason loss to Columbus. He did not factor into the scoring, but had three shots on goal and five blocked shots.
Analysis: Last season, Roman Josi was promoted to the Preds' top defensive pairing alongside Shea Weber and responded with a career-best 40 points (13 goals, 27 assists) in 72 games. Josi was given much more on-ice responsibility last season and finished just behind Weber in total ice time, averaging 26:25 per game. He was also a staple on the power play, where he racked up 13 points and averaged 3:05 per game in ice time. This season, Josi's emergence as a strong two-way defenseman should continue, helped along by the Preds' stronger, deeper lineup. Feel free to target Josi in the middle to later rounds of your drafts.

Preds' Josi Gets Game-Winner Sunday

News: Roman Josi scored the game-winning goal and chipped in an assist in Sunday's season finale against the Wild.
Analysis: Seth Jones received most of the publicity coming into the season among the Preds' young blueliners, but Roman Josi proved to be the more valuable of the two. He amassed 13 goals and 27 assists in 72 games.

Josi Pots Goal For Preds On Saturday

News: Roman Josi supplied his 12th goal of the season in Saturday's win over the Sharks.
Analysis: The 23-year-old has enjoyed a nice breakout season on a defensive pairing with Shea Weber, compiling 37 points in 68 games. He seems to be closing the campaign on a particularly strong note, accumulating three goals and eight assists over his last 13 games. Even bigger things could be in store for Roman Josi in 2014-15.

Preds' Josi Scores Two

News: Roman Josi put home a pair of goals and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to Colorado.
Analysis: His two tallies both came in the first half of the first period, giving the Preds a 2-0 lead that they couldn't make hold up. Though he now has a very fine (for a defenseman) 11 goals on the year, Roman Josi hadn't scored since Feb. 27 -- Nashville's first game back from the Olympics.

Josi Tallies Three Assists Friday

News: Roman Josi assisted on all three Predators goals during their 3-2 win over the Blackhawks on Friday.
Analysis: Roman Josi had gone five-straight games without registering a single point and now has four assists in his last two games. It's hardly a hot streak right now, but considering his 27 points in 56 games is a career high, it's not to bad actually.

Preds' Josi Building On Career Season

News: Roman Josi's assist during Tuesday's 4-1 win over Buffalo was his 27th point of the season, a career high.
Analysis: Roman Josi continues to log heavy minutes on the Preds' top blue-line tandem with Shea Weber, averaging 26:25 per night. He also ranks second on the team in blocked shots (118) and fifth in shots on goal (144), making him a very well-rounded fantasy defenseman option. He's nowhere near elite status at this point, however he's showing signs that he could be knocking on the door in another 2-3 seasons, especially if he continues under Weber's tutelage. Use accordingly.
