Derek Stepan, C, NYR Rangers' Stepan Pots Two In Win

Derek Stepan

Rangers' Stepan Pots Two In Win

News: Derek Stepan netted a pair of goals in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Penguins.
Analysis: Derek Stepan's getting into a bit of a groove as he's now recorded a multi-point effort in consecutive games and in five of his last 10 contests. He missed time at the beginning of the season, but the 24-year-old is now at a better than point-per-game rate with 31 through 30 contests and should be continued to be counted on to keep producing.

Rangers' Stepan Dishes Out Two Assists

News: Derek Stepan dished out a pair of assists in Friday's win over the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: If you're having passing problems, Derek Stepan feels bad for you son...Stepan's got 99 problems, but his sauce ain't one. The 24-year-old now has six goals and 23 assists in 29 games, to go with a plus-11 rating. With four multi-point efforts in his last nine outings, the second-line center provides great value in almost all formats. He's money on a Rangers' team that has won nine of their past 13 games. Keep him rolling.

Rangers' Stepan Gets Green Light

News: Derek Stepan (upper body) will play Friday against Columbus.
Analysis: With Derek Stepan -- who had been a game-time decision -- in action, J.T. Miller was scratched from the Rangers' lineup on Friday.

Rangers' Stepan Looks Like A Go On Friday

News: Derek Stepan (upper body) skated with Chris Kreider and Martin St. Louis during line rushes in advance of Friday's game against Columbus, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: J.T. Miller was the odd man out in line rushes, so it looks like Derek Stepan -- who was sporting an 'A' on his jersey during warmups -- should be a go Friday night.

Derek Stepan

Rangers' Stepan A Game-Time Decision Friday

News: Derek Stepan (upper body) is a game-time decision for Friday's game against Columbus, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: Derek Stepan, who sat out Thursday's game against the Bruins, skated Friday morning and evidently has a chance to return to action Friday night after missing just one contest.

Rangers' Stepan Shows Improvement, But Won't Play

News: Derek Stepan (upper body) reported improvement with his injury Thursday, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: While he won't suit up for Thursday's game against the Bruins, Derek Stepan has yet to be ruled out for Friday's tilt in Columbus. The Rangers figure to check back in on his condition Friday morning before relaying word on his availability for that night's game.

Rangers' Stepan (Upper Body) Sitting Out Thursday

News: Derek Stepan (upper body) will travel with the Rangers to Boston, but won't play in Thursday's game against the Bruins, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.
Analysis: After leaving Tuesday night's game in the second period with the injury, Derek Stepan remained off the ice for Wednesday's practice. It's a good sign that he's being allowed to travel with the Rangers, so it would seem he's still being viewed as day-to-day at this time. If he's able to get in an optional skate Thursday, he could be cleared to return to the lineup Friday in Columbus.

Rangers' Stepan Suffers Upper-Body Injury

News: Derek Stepan sustained an upper-body injury in Tuesday's loss to the Islanders, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: The center ended up seeing a season-low 6:55 of ice time after exiting in the second period with the injury. There's no word yet regarding the severity of the ailment or how it was acquired, putting his availability in question for the Rangers' next game Thursday in Boston.

Rangers' Stepan Leaves Tuesday With Injury

News: Derek Stepan appeared to suffer an undisclosed injury in the second period of Tuesday's game against the Islanders, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: After taking a shift earlier in the second, Derek Stepan remained on the bench for the remainder of the period. He then stayed in the locker room following the intermission, suggesting he might be dealing with some sort of ailment. Expect the Rangers to provide an update on his condition after the match.

Rangers' Stepan Dishes Out Two Assists

News: Derek Stepan contributed a pair of assists in Saturday's win over the Sharks.
Analysis: Derek Stepan now has 27 points (six goals) in 27 games on the season, to go with a plus-10 rating. With 21 assists, Stepan is once again proving to be one of the best set-up men around. He's only been held off the scoresheet nine times this season, making him a safe and reliable fantasy option in almost all leagues. With the red-hot Rangers having lost only once in their last 14 games, Stepan, who is on pace for 70 points, should be an automatic roll every night he's in action.

Derek Stepan, C, NYR

Derek Stepan

Stepan, Rangers Remain On Track.

News: Derek Stepan had a pair of assists in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Sharks.
Analysis: It's the veteran center's sixth multi-point effort of the season and snaps a three game point-scoring drought. Despite missing the first month of the season, if the 24-year-old (27 points in 27 games) can continue to put up efforts like tonight, he has a chance to eclipse the 60-point mark for the first time in his five year career.

Rangers' Stepan Adds Three Assists In Win

News: Derek Stepan collected three assists in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Panthers.
Analysis: Wednesday was the second time in the last three games that Derek Stepan has posted three points, and the star center now has six goals and 19 assists in 23 games on the year after beginning the season on IR with a broken leg.

Derek Stepan

Stepan's Hat Trick Carries Rangers To Another Win

News: Derek Stepan doubled his goal total Saturday, accounting for all three of the Rangers' tallies to garner his third NHL hat trick in a 3-1 win over the Devils.
Analysis: Derek Stepan rationed out his goals evenly, potting a shortie in the first period, a power-play goal in the second and an empty-netter in the game's final minute. The goals accounted for all three of his shot attempts -- how's that for efficiency? Step now has a five-game point streak rolling, and he's now above a point-per-game pace. Make sure he's glued to a spot in your lineup.

Derek Stepan, C, NYR Rangers' Stepan On A Roll

Derek Stepan

Rangers' Stepan On A Roll

News: Derek Stepan registered an assist in Tuesday's 4-2 triumph over the Capitals.
Analysis: Derek Stepan has pointed in four consecutive games, mostly serving in a facilitating capacity for the Rangers' top line. The center is only attempting just over two shots per game and only has three goals in 20 contests, but the talent surrounding him at both even strength and with the man advantage should continue to result in crooked assist totals.

12/16/2014

Derek Stepan, C, NYR

Derek Stepan

Rangers' Stepan Has Two-Point Night

News: Derek Stepan scored a wraparound goal, added a shorthanded assist and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Flames.
Analysis: Derek Stepan's point production had slowed recently, as he'd managed just a lone assist over the last four games, so it's good to see him pick things up again offensively and post his first positive rating since a plus-2 performance Nov. 28. He remains, however, a liability in the faceoff circle, as Step's 9-and-9 performance Tuesday is about as much as you can expect from him. He hasn't had more wins than losses at the dot in almost a month, dating back to Nov. 17.

Derek Stepan

Rangers' Stepan Notches Assist Saturday

News: Derek Stepan recorded his 14th assist of the season in Saturday's win over the Canucks.
Analysis: Derek Stepan didn't attempt any shots in the game, but didn't need to in a game the Rangers dominated from the opening puck drop. He's only potted two goals in his 15 games on the season, but that number should rise once his current 5.6 shooting percentage more closely approaches his 11.1 percent career rate.

Derek Stepan

Rangers' Stepan Notches Assist Trick

News: Derek Stepan assisted on all three of the Rangers' goals in Friday's triumph over the Flyers.
Analysis: Derek Stepan was credited with an assist at even strength, with the man advantage, and on the penalty kill, showcasing the versatility he offers as the Rangers' top-line center. He's shown no ill effects since returning from the fractured fibula that kept him out of action until Nov. 8, producing two goals and nine helpers over 10 games.

Rangers' Stepan Hasn't Skipped A Beat

News: Derek Stepan scored an early second period goal in Sunday's 5-0 win over Montreal.
Analysis: After missing the first five weeks of the season, the 24-year-old veteran has seemingly stepped back in without skipping a beat. While the coaching staff would likely prefer face-off numbers than the 50-percent ratio he put up on Sunday, two goals and five assists in his first eight contests is something both the organization and fantasy owners are enjoying.

Friday's Game Postponed For Rangers, Stepan

News: Derek Stepan and the Rangers had their scheduled game Friday against the Sabres postponed due to the extreme weather conditions in the Buffalo area, Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: With some parts of the region receiving up to six feet of snow this week, traveling to Buffalo would have proven quite treacherous for the Rangers had the game been played as scheduled. No make-up date has been announced yet for the game, but expect Derek Stepan to be in the lineup for the Rangers' next contest Sunday versus Montreal.

Derek Stepan

Rangers' Stepan Adds Assist In Win

News: Derek Stepan recorded an assist in Wednesday's 2-0 win over the Flyers.
Analysis: Since returning from a broken leg suffered in the preseason, Derek Stepan has returned to form as one of the most consistent centers in the NHL. He now has a goal and five assists in seven games, and his recent performances should quell any lingering worries fantasy owners may have had about his health moving forward.

Rangers' Stepan Registers First Goal

News: Derek Stepan scored his first goal of the year and tallied in the shootout Thursday, but it wasn't enough in a 4-3 loss to the Avalanche.
Analysis: The Rangers missed Derek Stepan while he was out due to a broken leg, and he's been productive since returning, with four points in as many games. There's no reason he shouldn't keep it rolling.

Round Stat Line For Rangers' Stepan

News: Derek Stepan picked up two assists -- one on the power play -- and went plus-2 with two PIM in Tuesday's 5-0 rout of the Penguins.
Analysis: Derek Stepan looked much stronger in this one than he did in his first two games back from a broken leg, as he finished positive in faceoffs for the first time this year and created Rick Nash's shorthanded goal by winning a race behind the Penguins' net and making a slick feed to Nash in the slot. Despite having missed a dozen games, Stepan could still very well clear 50 points this season.

Derek Stepan

Rangers' Stepan Gets Assist In Season Debut

News: Derek Stepan picked up an assist in 17:26 of ice time in his season debut Saturday.
Analysis: Expect the ice time numbers to start to increase once he gets his legs under him. Wait a couple games to get him back in there.

Rangers Activate Stepan

News: Derek Stepan (leg) was officially activated from injured reserve Saturday.
Analysis: The Rangers announced after Friday's practice that Derek Stepan had been cleared to make his season debut Saturday against the Maple Leafs. He shouldn't face any limitations in the game and will center a line of Chris Kreider and Mats Zuccarello.

Derek Stepan

Rangers' Stepan Set To Play Saturday

News: As expected, Derek Stepan (leg) will make his season debut Saturday against the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Derek Stepan missed the Rangers' first 12 games with a fractured fibula, but after practicing throughout the week, he's finally ready to resume his duties in the team's top six. The Rangers will likely wait until Saturday morning before officially activating him, but fantasy owners should begin preparing a spot to slide the center into their lineups. Stepan is expected to skate next to Chris Kreider and Mats Zuccarello in Saturday's contest.
