Rare Goal for Canes' McClement In Win Over Pens

News: Jay McClement scored his seventh goal of the season - his first point in 11 games - in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Penguins. It was his 20th point of the season.
Analysis: The last time Jay McClement hit the 20-point plateau was four seasons ago, when he had a combined 20 points with Colorado and St. Louis. At 32 years old, it would be a stretch to suggest McClement's career is on an upswing, but at the very least, it was nice to see him step up his game this season. He continues to possess modest fantasy value in deeper formats, especially those that count faceoff percentage, an area in which he particularly excels.

Canes Extend McClement

News: Jay McClement signed a two-year, $1.2 million contract extension with the Hurricanes on Sunday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.
Analysis: Jay McClement hasn't posted a spectacular season thus far, but he does sport a plus-3 rating and has 18 points through 61 games. The 31-year-old will sort the Hurricanes' colors for at least another two seasons, though the team will look to improve on this season, currently sitting last in their division.

Canes' McClement: Two Goals In Win

News: Jay McClement scored twice in Saturday's win over the Islanders.
Analysis: Jay McClement is a role player whose greatest value lies in his ability to check the team's best snipers and win faceoffs. But he's also picked up seven points, including four goals, in his last 10. His 18 points put him on pace to deliver his best offensive season since 2010-11. His fantasy value is limited to the deepest of formats.

Carolina's McClement Gathers Two Assists

News: Jay McClement finished with two assists and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Wild.
Analysis: Jay McClement remains confined primarily to a fourth-line role for the Hurricanes, but that hasn't prevented him from providing an offensive boost of late. He's recorded a goal and three assists over his last five games, though he'll probably need to notice an uptick in both even-strength and power-play ice time in order to maintain this level of productivity.

Canes' McClement Adding Offense From Fourth Line

News: Jay McClement registered an assist during Saturday's 5-4 win over the Sharks. It was his 12th point of the season and sixth in the past 10 games.
Analysis: For a fourth-line player, Jay McClement has been a consistent source of offense for the Hurricanes over the past few weeks. That said, it's been five seasons since McClement last cracked the 20-point barrier, so don't be surprised if the recent scoring surge dries up and he reverts to trend.

Leafs' McClement Picks Up Assist

News: Jay McClement was credited with an assist in Monday's win over the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: The checking-line center has noticed an unexpected surge in production lately, registering assists in three of his last four games. However, with only three shots on goal during that stretch and his continued presence in a bottom-six role, there's not much to get excited about here.

Rare Assist For Canes' McClement In Win

News: Jay McClement posted an assist -- just his sixth point of the season -- in Sunday's win over the Bruins.
Analysis: Jay McClement will never be a big scorer, but he's one of the more reliable faceoff men in the league with a 55.6 percent win rate, and he kills a lot of penalties, leading the team in shorthanded ice time per game at 2:32. None of this adds up to much fantasy value, of course, but it shows why he's more of an asset to the Hurricanes than to hockey poolies.

Carolina's McClement To Play Tuesday

News: Jay McClement (illness) is on the ice for pregame warmups and looks like he'll play Tuesday against the Canadiens.
Analysis: Jay McClement centered Carolina's fourth line during pregame rushes, with Brad Malone and Justin Shugg flanking him on the side. It appears as though the gastrointestinal issue that forced him out of the team's morning skate has subsided.

Hurricanes' McClement: Game-Time Decison Tuesday

News: Jay McClement is dealing with an illness and will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Canadiens.
Analysis: Jay McClement was unable to take part in Tuesday's morning skate due to the illness. The Hurricanes will decide whether he'll play shortly before the first puck is dropped.

Canes' McClement Adds First Goal Of Season

News: Jay McClement scored the team's lone goal, his first of the season, in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Red Wings.
Analysis: Jay McClement now has five points on the season, averaging more than 14 minutes per game. He's a useful player for the Hurricanes, but there isn't much upside from a fantasy perspective.

Canes' McClement Adds Helper In Win Over Stars

News: Jay McClement registered his third point of the season during Tuesday's 6-4 win over Dallas, assisting on Jeff Skinner's second period goal.
Analysis: Make no mistake - Jay McClement is a workhorse, and is worth more to the Hurricanes as a durable, dependable, checking-line center than he is to fantasy owners. He doesn't excel in any one statistical category, but he sees extensive time on the PK, leading the team in shorthanded ice time per game (2:40) and is one of only four Canes players to post a positive plus-minus rating this season (+1). Bottom line, if you're in a fantasy league that somehow rewards players who kill penalties and keeps the other team's best forwards in check, McClement is your guy. Otherwise, avoid.

Canes' McClement Adds Assist In Win Friday

News: Jay McClement registered an assist during Friday's 6-3 loss to Edmonton - just his second point of the season.
Analysis: Jay McClement's job is not to add offense, but to shut down the opposing team's best skaters. So, on a night when he's busy trying to keep guys like Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins in check, the fact that he was able to crack the scoresheet is impressive. Still, from a fantasy standpoint, don't expect him to crack the 20-point barrier this year - something he hasn't done in the past five seasons.

McClement To Fill Checking Line Role For Canes

News: Coach Bill Peters says he is still auditioning linemates to play alongside McClement this season, Luke DeCock of the Raleigh News & Observer reports. "All I know is I'm looking for somebody who can play with Jay McClement, on either side, be a responsible player, and play against the best players in the league," Peters said. "Whether that's a third-line checking line, or if I miss on a matchup they're my security blanket, I don't know that yet. We need a responsible line that's basically our template on how to play. They do it right each and every night. ‘JMac' and two others."
Analysis: When Jay McClement signed with the Hurricanes as a free agent in July, he was expected to fill a similar role to the one he played last season in Toronto - be a defensively responsible fourth-line center, play with hustle and energy, win faceoffs and kill penalties. However, now that Jordan Staal is out three to four months with a broken leg, it sounds like Peters is looking at him with more of a third-line role in mind. That said, it's difficult to imagine him seeing significantly more ice time than the 15 or so minutes he's averaged over the past two seasons. Bottom line, scoring goals will not be high on McClement's to-do list this season, which keeps his fantasy value fairly low in most formats. Best to avoid him outside of deeper leagues which count faceoffs won and penalty-kill minutes as stat categories.

Canes Sign McClement To One-Year Deal

News: Jay McClement signed a one-year deal with the Hurricanes on Wednesday, according to the teams' official site.
Analysis: Jay McClement spent the past two seasons with the Maple Leafs, where he racked up 27 total points over 129 games. The 31-year-old center will make the transition to the Canes, where he'll look to produce his fourth ever season with a double-digit goal total.

Leafs' McClement Finishes As First Star Tuesday

News: Jay McClement potted his fourth goal of the season in Tuesday's win over the Flames.
Analysis: Jay McClement's marker came less than a minute into the second period, giving the fourth-line center his second point in as many games. It's probably about as long as the scoring streak is going to get for McClement, who only has 10 points in 76 games this season.

Leafs' McClement Returns To Practice

News: Jay McClement (upper body) returned to practice Thursday, Terry Koshan of the Toronto Sun reports.
Analysis: Jay McClement left Wednesday's practice early with the injury, but his return to the ice a day later suggests his removal was only precautionary. Expect McClement to be available when the Leafs resume play Feb. 27 vs. the Islanders.

Leafs' McClement Leaves Practice Early

News: Jay McClement (upper body) departed from Wednesday's practice early, Terry Koshan of the Toronto Sun reports.
Analysis: Jay McClement had previously suffered an apparent head injury in the Leafs' final game before the break, so it could be the case where he hasn't been cleared yet for full-contact duty. The Leafs are still a week away from playing their next game, allowing the team to take things slowly with the forward.

Leafs' McClement Suffers Injury

News: Jay McClement suffered an upper-body injury and will not return to Saturday's game, Sportsnet's David Alter reports.
Analysis: Jay McClement's gone back to logging about 15 minutes per game recently, and he's never been a good source of points. He's good in his role but of little use to the vast majority of fantasy owners. He'll have more than two weeks to recover from Saturday's injury, before the NHL resumes play at the conclusion of the Olympic break.

Leafs' McClement: No Points In Nine Games

News: Jay McClement, whose game suffered when he was forced to shoulder too much responsibility when the Leafs were hit with injuries down the middle, is settling back into a checking role. His faceoff winning percentage is high, but he hasn't recorded a point in nine games.
Analysis: Jay McClement was forced onto the ice way too often when Tyler Bozak was out and his game -- being a pesky checker -- all but disappeared. He was just too tired to pull it off. Now that Bozak is back, McClement can return to his pesky ways. Unfortunately, that means his value is greatest on the ice rather than in any fantasy arena.

Leafs' McClement: Contributing, But Not On Score Sheet

News: Jay McClement may only have two assists this season, but his teammates consider him the team's "hidden MVP," according to the Toronto Sun. "Look at a guy like Jay and what he does in the game -- it's more than guys who do score," Leafs winger David Clarkson said.
Analysis: Jay McClement is logging heavy minutes as a grinder, and had gone positive in the face-off circle for 10 straight games prior to Monday. On Saturday, he played more than 20 minutes, most of it smothering the Caps' Alexander Ovechkin. He's the Leafs' top PK man and best face-off guy, and he can actually slot onto any of the team's four lines. McClement won't offer help in traditional fantasy formats, but his presence sure helps your other Leaf players.

Leafs' McClement Expected To Sit Out Tuesday

News: Jay McClement (personal) is not on the ice for Tuesday's pregame warmups and isn't expected to play against the Avalanche, Sportsnet 590's David Alter reports.
Analysis: It looks like Jay McClement will stay with his wife for the night after she was set to give birth to the couple's child Tuesday. McClement should be available when the Leafs play their next game Thursday against the Predators.

Leafs' McClement: Game-Time Decision Tuesday

News: Jay McClement will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Avalanche, as he will be attending the birth of his child, the Toronto Star reports.
Analysis: Jay McClement's wife went into labor Tuesday and he was not with the team for practice. With the birth expected sometime Tuesday, he's uncertain to play in the game. He's played in three games this season for the Maple Leafs, but has yet to record a point.

Leafs' McClement Continues To Impress

News: Jay McClement didn't record a point in Friday's win over Boston, but he was the Leafs' best skater on the night.
Analysis: He had impacts in all three zones and was dominant in the doing all the little things that result in a win. He doesn't have a point this postseason, but his play will help dictate the success of his team and the other players on it.

Leafs' McClement Snaps Five-Game Point Drought

News: Jay McClement scored a goal and added an assist to snap a five-game point drought Saturday.
Analysis: He had started the season with a five-game slump, but that had been his longest until now. He's more of a PK and face-off specialist, so his value is limited to deep specialty leagues.
