Avs' Talbot Adds Two Helpers Wednesday

News: Maxime Talbot picked up two assists in Wednesday's loss to the Jets.
Analysis: Maxime Talbot entered the week without a point in his last six games, but he's since rebounded with three points in his last two games. The forward has certainly shown flashes of his scoring potential at various points this season for the Avs, but he'll have a tough time sustaining his production working outside of a top-six role.

Avs' Talbot Scores Eighth In Tuesday`s Loss

News: Maxime Talbot scored his eighth goal of the season Tuesday in a 6-3 loss to the Canadiens.
Analysis: The gritty Quebec-native got to the dirty area on this one, boxing out Tomas Plekanec a split second before snapping a perfect centering pass from Matt Duchene past Carey Price. It's little glimpses of offensive savvy like this that remind us how Maxime Talbot came just one goal shy of 20 playing with Daniel Briere and Jakub Voracek three seasons ago in Philadelphia. In terms of potential, Talbot is one of the higher-end depth forwards out there, but with coach Patrick Roy choosing to stockpile his biggest offensive weapons on the top two lines, Talbot doesn't get much of a supporting cast - limiting his scoring chances. Remember, the Avs brought Talbot (and his $1.8 million price tag) to Denver primarily for his playoff prowess -- 39 points in 77 games, including a Stanley Cup-winning goal with the Penguins -- which unfortunately doesn't impact regular-season fantasy play.

Avs' Talbot Returns To Action Friday

News: Maxime Talbot (personal) returned to the Avalanche lineup Friday against Phoenix after missing the previous game due to the birth of his son.
Analysis: The proud new father and his fiancee named their baby boy Jaxson Spartacus Maxime Talbot. He spent the majority of the game on a line with John Mitchell and Jamie McGinn, registering one shot in 15:56 of ice time, 4:12 of which was spent on the penalty kill.

Avs' Talbot A Late Scratch Wednesday

News: Maxime Talbot (personal) missed Wednesday's game against the Kings.
Analysis: Maxime Talbot's fiancee went into labor shortly before game time, keeping the winger out of the lineup for the team's first game out of the break. The expectation is that he'll be available for Friday's game against the Coyotes, but coach Patrick Roy could still give him the night off to spend time with his newborn.

Avs' Talbot Questionable For Wednesday

News: Maxime Talbot (personal) could miss Wednesday's game vs. the Kings, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Maxime Talbot participated at the team's morning skate Wednesday, but with his fiancee set to give birth to the couple's child any day now, the forward could be forced out of action. Cody McLeod would be bumped up to Talbot's spot on the third line if he's unable to go Thursday.

Avs' Talbot Misses Practice

News: Maxime Talbot (personal) did not practice with the team Monday, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Maxime Talbot was at the hospital Wednesday while his fiancee was in labor, so there's no reason to believe that he won't suit up for Wednesday's game against the Kings. Talbot currently has six goals and 13 assists in 58 games this season.

Avs' Talbot Dishes Twice

News: Maxime Talbot collected two assists in Monday's win over the Stars.
Analysis: Maxime Talbot is building a nice rapport with his teammates, as he now has five helpers in the last five games. The Avs will rely on his veteran leadership as the team continues to battle within a competitive Central Division.

Avs' Talbot Notches Goal, Assist In Win

News: Maxime Talbot scored a goal and assisted on another during the Avalanche's 3-2 win over the Flames on Friday.
Analysis: Maxime Talbot notched his second goal of the season late in the second period to tie up the game and then assisted on a goal just 54 seconds later to give the Avs a lead they would not relinquish. The two points were his first in seven games and he now has just two goals and four assists through 16 games this season.

Talbot Tallies First Points With Avs

News: Maxime Talbot dished out a pair of assists in Tuesday's win over Chicago -- his first points since joining the Avalanche.
Analysis: It took him nine games, but Maxime Talbot finally broke through with his new team. He's still seeing good ice time, but despite his always-solid contributions on the ice and veteran leadership, Talbot's not much of an offensive force.

Avs' Talbot To Skate On Third Line In Team Debut

News: Maxime Talbot will skate on the Avalanche's third line in his team debut against the Stars on Friday, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Even as a third-liner, Maxime Talbot will likely enjoy a much more friendly situation for his fantasy situation than he did with the scoring-deficient Flyers. He'll work on the third line with talented rookie Nathan MacKinnon and John Mitchell in his debut.

Flyers Trade Talbot To Avs For Steve Downie

News: The Flyers traded Maxime Talbot to the Avalanche on Thursday in exchange for Steve Downie, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Analysis: Despite having just two points (1G, 1A) on the season, Maxime Talbot does own a plus-8 rating over the past three seasons (plus-1 this year) and figures to see a spike in playing time upon his arrival to Colorado. He'll provide the Avs with some much-needed experience at the center position.

Talbot Finds The Net As Flyers Lose

News: Maxime Talbot was credited with the Flyers' lone goal in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Coyotes.
Analysis: Zac Rinaldo's spinning shot deflected on Maxime Talbot's skate for the Flyers' only goal in their loss to Phoenix. New coach Craig Berube has been tinkering with the Flyers' lines, and it looks like Talbot may stay with Sean Couturier and Rinaldo. The goal was a lucky surprise for Talbot, so don't expect much production from the third-line winger.

Flyers' Talbot Back In Action

News: Maxime Talbot potted a goal and was plus-1 in the Flyers' most recent preseason game Tuesday.
Analysis: A fractured leg brought a premature ending for Maxime Talbot last season, but he appears to be fine at this point and will reprise his role as a checking-line center for the Flyers in his third season with the club.

Flyers' Talbot Done For Season

News: Maxime Talbot (leg) is out for the season, Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

Flyers' Talbot Fractures Leg

News: Maxime Talbot will be out indefinitely due to a fractured left leg that he suffered Sunday against the Caps, philly.com reports.
Analysis: There has been no timetable set for Maxime Talbot's recovery, but it seems safe to assume that his regular season is done, at the very least. If so, Talbot will finish the 2012-13 campaign with five goals and 10 points in 35 games.

Talbot Scores In Flyers' Win

News: Maxime Talbot tallied his second goal in three games, netting Philadelphia's only goal in Friday's shootout win over New Jersey.
Analysis: Maxime Talbot's primary role on the ice is not usually to score goals, but rather help the Flyers stop them. On Friday, he was the beneficiary of a great pass from Simon Gagne and two Devils' defenders falling into goalie Johan Hedberg.Talbot has three goals on the season and likely won't score at too prolific a pace in the season's final 20 games.

Flyers' Talbot Off To Cold Start

News: Maxime Talbot has yet to tally a goal this season after 17 games played.
Analysis: The center has three assists on the season and only one point in the last 11 games. He is coming off his best season of 19 goals and 15 assists, so this is a big step backward.

Flyers' Talbot Signs With Finnish Squad

News: Maxime Talbot signed a lockout contract with Ilves of Finland's SM-Liiga, CSN Philly reports.
Analysis: The 28-year-old Maxime Talbot is the second Flyer to head to Finland during the lockout, as Scott Hartnell also plans to join the SM-Liiga's KalPa later in the month if the NHL remains locked out. Talbot scored a career-high 19 goals to go along with 15 assists last season, his first with the Flyers.

Talbot Grabs Lone Philly Goal

News: Maxime Talbot scored Philadelphia's only goal in their series-ending Game 5 loss to New Jersey.
Analysis: Maxime Talbot had been quiet this series with no goals, but he did have a point in each of the last two games. Talbot finished the playoffs against Philadelphia with four goals and is locked up for another four years with the Flyers.

Penguins' Talbot In Cold Snap

News: Maxime Talbot has just one point in his last 16 games.
Analysis: Overall, Maxime Talbot has 18 goals and 29 points, both career-highs, but his production has cooled of late, which probably limits his fantasy utility to those prepared to heavily back the Penguins in playoff pools.

Flyers' Talbot Ends Goal Drought

News: Maxime Talbot ended a five-game goal drought in Tuesday's win over Detroit.
Analysis: Maxime Talbot had been quiet of late after a productive stretch in February and is worth a look in leagues that roll many forwards. He's a defensive player, but will crack the 20-goal plateau in his first year with Philadelphia.

Flyers' Talbot Pouring In Pucks

News: Maxime Talbot scored twice Thursday in a win over Buffalo, giving him four goals in his last four games and a career-high 27 points on the season.
Analysis: He's never really been known for his scoring -- his 16 goals are already a career high as well -- but Maxime Talbot has elevated his contributions on the offensive end this year while continuing to provide a steady two-way presence for the Flyers.
