Stars' Gonchar Has Assist In Limited Ice Time

News: Sergei Gonchar grabbed an assist while playing just 13:35 in Monday's win over the Jets.
Analysis: At 39 years old, Sergei Gonchar doesn't have the stamina he once had. Or Stars management doesn't trust him enough to let him test it. Either way, you aren't getting much ice time out of the veteran. The last time he crossed the 20-minute mark was Jan. 16, and he's been under 15 minutes in the last three games.

Stars' Gonchar Tallies Assist, Snaps Slump

News: Sergei Gonchar had an assist and 16:52 of ice time in Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: Sergei Gonchar is having a rough season. His ice time is low and he's putting points on the board at one of the slowest paces of his career. His two goals and 17 assists in 56 games this season is less than what he did in 45 last year.

Stars' Gonchar Slowing With Age

News: Sergei Gonchar has two goals and 16 assists in 52 games so far this season.
Analysis: Sergei Gonchar is a few years past his prime at this point, but he still chips in offensively every now and then. His minus-8 rating makes him a little less valuable, so there are probably more productive options out there for owners who need help on the blue line.

Stars' Gonchar Will Play Saturday

News: Sergei Gonchar (lower body) will play Saturday vs. the Wild, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Sergei Gonchar was a little banged up after a physical contest with the Bruins on Thursday, but after taking Friday to rest, he should be on track for his usual amount of minutes. The blueliner has settled down a bit after running hot in mid-December, as he has been held to just one point over his last eight games.

Stars' Gonchar Questionable With Lower Body Injury

News: Sergei Gonchar is questionable for Saturday's game against the Wild due to a lower body injury, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Sergei Gonchar saw over 20 minutes of ice time in the Stars' last game, but his status for Saturday's game is uncertain due to the injury. Expect the Stars to update Gonchar's status prior to the first puck being dropped Saturday.

Stars' Gonchar To Return Monday

News: Sergei Gonchar (concussion) will be activated from injured reserve and will play in Monday's game against the Islanders.
Analysis: Sergei Gonchar has missed the last six games for the Stars recovering from a concussion. He has been cleared to return and will take the ice Monday for the Stars against the Islanders.

Stars' Gonchar Expected Back Monday

News: Sergei Gonchar (concussion) is expected to return from IR on Monday vs. the Islanders, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Sergei Gonchar will miss Saturday's contest - his sixth in a row - as he recovers from a concussion, but coach Lindy Ruff indicated that the defenseman looked good while skating the past couple of days. With another quality practice Sunday, Gonchar should be given the go-ahead to return to the Stars' lineup.

Stars' Gonchar Returns To Practice Friday

News: Sergei Gonchar (concussion) was a full participant in Friday's practice for the Stars.
Analysis: Sergei Gonchar has missed five games with the concussion but was able to practice Friday without any issues. He may be able to return for Saturday's game against the Red Wings, but a decision will likely be made closer to game time by coach Lindy Ruff.

Stars' Gonchar Out Thursday

News: Sergei Gonchar (concussion) will not play Thursday against the Canadiens, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Sergei Gonchar was given the green light to take full contact Thursday, and thus cleared one of the final hurdles on his road back from a concussion. He won't go against Montreal, but figures to need only a few practices before returning to the lineup.

Stars' Gonchar Cleared For Contact

News: Sergei Gonchar (concussion) has been cleared for contact, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' website reports.
Analysis: Sergei Gonchar has not played since Dec. 21 due to the concussion, but his participation in Thursday's morning skate gives him a chance to play Thursday night against the Canadiens.

Stars' Gonchar Works Out Off Ice

News: Sergei Gonchar (concussion) worked out off the ice Saturday, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports.
Analysis: It's just preliminary activity for Sergei Gonchar to stay conditioned while he remains limited by the concussion. The Stars will wait and see if he experienced any setbacks from Saturday's workout before possibly clearing him for on-ice duty.

Stars Place Gonchar On IR

News: Sergei Gonchar (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: The Stars will exchange one injured defenseman for another, as Aaron Rome (lower body) was activated from IR in a corresponding move and will rejoin the lineup Friday. Sergei Gonchar remains out indefinitely while he deals with the concussion and has yet to resume on-ice work.

Stars' Gonchar Has Concussion-Like Symptoms

News: Sergei Gonchar has concussion-like symptoms and is expected to miss 7-10 days, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: A hard shot struck Sergei Gonchar in the face during the second period Saturday's game, and the 39-year-old was unable to return. GM Jim Nill confirmed Sunday that Gonchar is displaying concussion symptoms, and he'll likely miss at least a week as a result. Maxime Fortunus was recalled and will slot into the lineup Monday against Los Angeles.

Stars' Gonchar Builds Point Streak To Three Games

News: Sergei Gonchar contributed an assist for the third straight game Tuesday vs. the Avalanche.
Analysis: Highlighted by a four-helper effort in Saturday's demolition of the Jets, Sergei Gonchar is finally showing signs of life after struggling through the first quarter of the season. Gonchar is still in search of his first goal, but he's been rewarded with increased minutes in recent contests in the wake of his rediscovered productivity on the offensive end.

Stars' Gonchar Off To Glacially Slow Start

News: Sergei Gonchar has registered just one point through 15 games this season.
Analysis: The addition of Sergei Gonchar was thought to be a major coup for the Stars after he was poached from the Senators in an offseason trade, but the veteran blueliner has looked every bit of his 39 years of age in the early going. Coach Lindy Ruff has dabbled with different defensive pairings in hopes of igniting Gonchar, but it's been all for naught thus far. In accordance with his struggles, Gonchar has seen his ice time decline precipitously during his time with the Stars. He's seeing 18:38 of action per game on the season, a drop of almost five and a half minutes from last season. It may be time for fantasy owners in shallower formats to look elsewhere for defenseman help.

Stars' Gonchar Agrees to Two-Year Deal

News: Sergei Gonchar, who was traded to Dallas on Friday, has agreed to a two-year deal with the Stars at $5 million per season, TSN reports.
Analysis: Sergei Gonchar had a deal on the table from a KHL team for $7 million a season, but playing in the NHL is no doubt more important than an extra $2 mil a year. Gonchar will be 40 next season, but he's coming off a 27-point season in 45 games.

Sens Ship Gonchar To Stars

News: Sergei Gonchar was traded to the Stars on Friday in exchange for a conditional sixth-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft.
Analysis: With rumors percolating that Sergei Gonchar was on the verge of accepting a contract with a KHL club, the Senators elected to trade Gonchar to get some sort of compensation before he left the team outright. Still a productive player even as he nears his 40th birthday, Gonchar compiled 27 points over 45 games last season. Even with the trade to Dallas, there's still a chance he could head overseas for what would likely be a more lucrative contract offer.

Senators' Gonchar Has Big Offer From KHL On Table

News: Sergei Gonchar has a standing offer from Metallurg Magnitogorsk of the KHL that is potentially worth more than $7 million per season, the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Sergei Gonchar is still a very capable NHL player, and his agent said that he prefers to remain in the world's premier league, but with his career likely nearing an end it is probably wise for Gonchar to consider the best offer from a financial standpoint. While he can still secure a nice contract in the NHL, a multi-year offer worth $7 million annually won't be on the table.

Sens' Gonchar Scores OT Winner

News: Sergei Gonchar scored his third goal of the year Thursday on an overtime power play against the Capitals.
Analysis: It was a rare goal for Sergei Gonchar, who hadn't potted one since March 19. He's been a bit warmer offensively of late, collecting four points in his last five games following a nine-game drought.

Sens' Gonchar Snaps Long Slump

News: Sergei Gonchar notched two assists and went plus-3 Tuesday in a win over Carolina, snapping a nine-game scoring drought.
Analysis: They were both secondary assists, but Sergei Gonchar owners will take it after nine games of pure misery. Crazily, that pointless streak was preceded by a 10-game points streak, which was in turn preceded by an eight-game scoreless streak. In short, it's been an incredibly streaky season for Gonchar, so maybe Tuesday's performance is the start of another good run.

Ottawa's Gonchar Has Little Fantasy Value Thursday

News: Sergei Gonchar was on the ice for 18:02 Thursday against New York.
Analysis: That's all there was for Sergei Gonchar owners Thursday. Nonetheless, you're playing him. Gonchar would be on a path for a career year in points in a regular length season with 22 points in 31 games, good for fifth among NHL defensemen.

Ottawa's Gonchar Puts Up The Minutes

News: Sergei Gonchar tallied two penalty minutes Monday against New Jersey in 25:12 of ice team.
Analysis: Monday's rather slow game for Sergei Gonchar ended a 10-game point streak. He has 15 points and 10 PIM in his last 11 games. But even when Gonchar doesn't score he's putting up some huge minutes. He shouldn't be on anyone's bench.

Sens' Gonchar: Assists In 10 Straight Games

News: Sergei Gonchar (undisclosed) established a Senators' record with an assist in 10 straight games after tallying a first-period power-play assist in Saturday's win over the Lightning.
Analysis: He's on a 60-plus point pace if it were a regular season -- that would be near his career highs from his days in Pittsburgh and Washington. This could be the last hurrah, though -- he's about to turn 39 so keeper leaguers may want to trade him to a contender if that option still exists.

Sens' Gonchar An Optimistic Game-Time Decision

News: Sergei Gonchar (undisclosed) remains a game-time decision for Saturday's game against Tampa Bay, though the team is optimistic that he'll be available.
Analysis: The Senators stated on Twitter that "It looks positive that [Sergei Gonchar and Marc Methot] will suit up" for Saturday's game. Owners of both players will want to check back closer to the drop of the puck at 2:00 eastern time.

Sens' Gonchar Iffy For Saturday

News: Sergei Gonchar, who left Thursday's game with an undisclosed injury, will be a game-time decision for Saturday's game against the Lightning.
Analysis: Sergei Gonchar, who notched an assist Thursday, has scored a point in nine straight games and currently leads the Sens with 21 points overall.
