2013 Draft Prep: Top 200 breakdown

by | Rotowire.com
  •  

We don't have an ample amount of time to ramp up for the coming NHL season, so here's our top 200.

A few notes before we get to the rankings:

1. The rankings are mine, so don't go sending angry emails to RotoWire or CBSSports.com headquarters.

2. The rankings were compiled with a little bit of each of the following -- For skaters the focus was placed upon: Goals, assists, +/-, PIM, PPG, PPA. For goalies: Wins, loses, GAA, saves and shutouts.

3. The rankings are geared toward Head-to-Head setups in a Rotisserie style scoring system during each scoring period.

Without further delay, here's the Top 200 ...

Rank Name Team Position Comment
1 Evgeni Malkin PIT C Coming off the most dominating campaign in the game with 50 goals and 109 points.
2 Steven Stamkos TB C Coming off the most dominating goal-scoring campaign in the game (60) in four years.
3 Sidney Crosby PIT C Appeared in only 22 games because of injury but his 1.68 points-per-game mark was a career best.
4 Claude Giroux PHI RW In his third full season he was third in the NHL with 93 points including 38 on the power-play.
5 Daniel Sedin VAN LW Sedin appears to be fully recovered from the concussion that marred the end of his season.
6 Alex Ovechkin WAS LW After five straight years to open his career with 50 goals, he's failed to reach 40 the past two seasons.
7 Corey Perry ANA RW The only skater to have at least 35 goals and 100 PIMs each of the past two seasons.
8 Pekka Rinne NSH G Led the league with 43 wins and 1,987 saves for the Predators.
9 Henrik Lundqvist NYR G One of the most consistent keepers ever. Six straight years of 35 wins and 19 shutouts the past two seasons.
10 Henrik Sedin VAN C His total of 81 points was a four-year low. He's also been at least +22 all of those seasons.
11 Ilya Kovalchuk NJD LW Rebounded from his worst season to record 37 goals and 83 points.
12 Erik Karlsson OTT D Outscored all other blue liners by 25 points (19 goals, 59 assists).
13 Shea Weber NSH D Tied for the blue line lead in goals (19). Only rearguard with 10 goals, 45 points, +15, 175 hits, 145 blocks.
14 Jonathan Quick LOS G Coming off back surgery, he's expected to be fine. Led league with 10 shutouts and his 1.95 GAA was second.
15 Zach Parise MIN LW Playing in his home state, he's working on a stretch of five straight "healthy" seasons of 30 goals.
16 James Neal PIT RW Second in the league with 329 shots, Neal scored 40 goals and recorded 81 points in 80 games.
17 Ryan Miller BUF G You know you are good when 31 wins, a 2.54 GAA, .916 SV% and six shutouts is an average season.
18 John Tavares NYI C Has done nothing but impress in three seasons. Game hit elite levels in Year 3 -- 31 goals, 81 points.
19 Kris Letang PIT D Had 10 goals and 42 points in 51 games. Give him 82 games and those numbers become 16 and 68.
20 Zdeno Chara BOS D Coming off a career best 40 assists, 52 points, +33 rating. Eight straight years of 40 points, 85 PIMs
21 Jason Spezza OTT C Rarely has a point-per-game performer (616 in 606 games) received less notoriety.
22 Eric Staal CAR C A furious finish allowed him to reach 70 points for the 7th straight season. Plays with his brother now.
23 Marc-Andre Fleury PIT G Won 42 games backstopping the games best offense while sporting an impressive 2.36 GAA.
24 Phil Kessel TOR RW Never met a puck he didn't want to shoot. Kessel reached career bests in goals (37) and points (82).
25 Rick Nash NYR LW You're pretty darn special when 30 goals and 59 points is seen as a disaster. Finally out of Columbus.
26 Jonathan Toews CHI C Would be ranked higher if injuries didn't limit him to 59 games. Still, 29 goals and 57 points is impressive.
27 Anze Kopitar LOS C The last five years have seen at least 25 goals, and four times in five seasons at least 70 points (66 in 2008).
28 Pavel Datsyuk DET C Fell below 20 goals for the first time since 2002, but still had nearly a point per game (67 in 70).
29 Nicklas Backstrom WAS C Was once again an elite performer last season with 44 points in 42 games. Is over health woes - for now.
30 Henrik Zetterberg DET LW It's been four years since he reached 30 goals, but he's a shot producing monster who scores points.
31 Patrick Sharp CHI RW Not quite elite, but right on the cusp, year after year. Averaging 31 goals the past five seasons.
32 Bobby Ryan ANA RW For four straight years he's hit 30 goals. Why the Ducks seem to always have him on the block is unknown.
33 Carey Price MON G His record was sub-.500 (26-28-11) despite a 2.43 GAA and .916 save percentage.
34 Roberto Luongo VAN G Where will he play? Has won 30 games seven straight years with at least four shutouts each season.
35 Taylor Hall EDM LW Will he change his game to protect his body? Through two seasons he's averaged 32 goals per 82 games.
36 Tyler Seguin BOS RW Like another Beantown youngster (Joe Thornton) it just took Seguin a year to get going (29 goals, 38 assists).
37 Patrick Kane CHI RW The off-ice shenanigans have caused some to overlook the game that has produced 369 points in 399 games.
38 Loui Eriksson DAL LW Three straight years of 70 points establish him as a star. Now if he could only find his lost "S."
39 Ryan Getzlaf ANA C After four years averaging 80 points, Getzlaf slumped to just 57 last season. Expect a rebound.
40 Jarome Iginla CGY RW For 11 years he's scored at least 30 goals. Showing some signs of slippage, but still a rockstar.
41 Martin St. Louis TB RW Since 2006 his total of 532 points has been bettered only by one man -- Alexander Ovechkin (573).
42 Patrick Marleau SAN LW Four straight 30-goal efforts including at least 10 power-play goals and 250 shots in each season.
43 Brad Richards NYR C Has seen his point total shrink from 91 to 77 to 66. Still a power-play force to be reckoned with.
44 Joe Thornton SAN C He's evolved as a hockey player at the expense of his point totals, though nine straight 70-point seasons ain't bad.
45 Ilya Bryzgalov PHI G Couldn't have played any worse but still won 33 games with six shutouts for the Flyers.
46 Scott Hartnell PHI RW The most complete player in Fantasy hockey in 2011? 37 goals, 67 points, +19 and 136 PIMs.
47 Jimmy Howard DET G Only injury slowed Howard, who won 35 games for a 3rd straight year with a career best 2.12 GAA.
48 Gabriel Landeskog COL LW As complete a rookie as we've seen in years. He scores (22 goals), hits (219) and shoots (270 shots on goal).
49 Jordan Eberle EDM RW Exploded in second season with 34 goals and 76 points. Might put his game into yet another gear.
50 Miikka Kiprusoff CGY G For seven straight years he has recorded 35 wins. His .921 save percentage last season was his best since 2005.
51 Logan Couture SAN C Two full seasons, two 30-goal efforts. Was a power-play force last season with 26 man-advantage points.
52 Ryan Nugent-Hopkins EDM C Only injury stopped RNH from a rather amazing rookie season. Still, 52 points in 62 games hints at greatness.
53 Keith Yandle PHO D It's time to recognize he is an elite blue-liner who has scored 34 times the last three years.
54 Dustin Byfuglien WPG D He's spotty off the ice and not a great defender, but he's an elite point-producer from the blue line.
55 Milan Lucic BOS LW The modern day Cam Neely. Lucic has produced 26 goals, 61 points and 121 PIMs the last two years.
56 Marian Hossa CHI RW When healthy, Hossa is still nearly a point-per-game producer who helps out all over the stat sheet.
57 Cam Ward CAR G Canes have improved offensively, now they need to tighten things up defensively (Ward had a 2.74 GAA).
58 Thomas Vanek BUF LW Had a six-year low in goals (26) but still extended his streak of seven straight seasons of 10 power-play goals.
59 David Backes STL C How is this for a two-year average: 28 goals, 58 points, +24, 97 PIMs, 220 hits and 224 shots on net.
60 Kari Lehtonen DAL G Has shaken the injury label with back-to-back 30-plus-win seasons. Coming off career best 2.33 goals against average.
61 Johan Franzen DET RW Coming off two virtually identical seasons: 28 and 29 goals, 55 and 56 points, 10 and 11 power-play goals.
62 Drew Doughty LOS D What the heck happened? Doughty had three-year lows in goals (10), points (36) and plus/minus (-2).
63 Mike Smith PHX G The out-of-nowhere star in net, Smith won 38 games, had eight shutouts and a .930 save percentage. Encore?
64 Joe Pavelski SAN C Little Joe scored a career best 31 goals and +18 and reached 265 shots for the third time in four years.
65 Antti Niemi SAN G Inconsistent as all get out, Niemi has won 69 games with 12 shutouts in two seasons in San Jose.
66 Jonas Hiller ANA G Finishing kick anyone? His last 41 games: 2.12 GAA and a .921 save percentage.
67 Alexander Semin WAS LW The luster is gone, but the talent remains. Semin is one of those tantalizing talents that continues to frustrate.
68 Mike Ribeiro WAS C A capable disher of the puck, he could easily exceed his average of 68 points the past two years in D.C.
69 Matt Duchene COL C An elite young speedster, Duchene's production was literally halved in Year 3 (28 points).
70 Dan Boyle SAN D When your four-year low in points is 48 you're a pretty darn effective producer from the blue line.
71 Duncan Keith CHI D He's not the 2009 version (14 goals, 55 assists) but he's scored 40 points with a +15 rating in three of the last four years.
72 Martin Brodeur NJD G Clearly no longer elite, but it's still hard to argue with 31 victories and a 2.41 GAA in 59 games.
73 Alex Pietrangelo STL D He's averaged 12 goals and 47 points in his first two seasons. Only thing he doesn't do is bring PIMs.
74 Alexander Edler VAN D Coming off a career best season of 11 goals and 49 points. Over 140 hits and blocks as well.
75 Jeff Carter LOS C So many people seem to have forgotten that from 2008 to 2010 this guy averaged 38 goals.
76 Jamie Benn DAL C A rising star, Benn has upped his point total from 41 to 56 to 63. Took 203 shots on net and recorded seven GWGs.
77 Alex Burrows VAN RW Skating in Vancouver has its benefits. Burrows has recorded 26 goals with a +23 rate in four straight seasons.
78 Mike Green WAS D After 70 points in 2008 & 2009 he's recorded 31 points in 81 games the past two season. Wild card personified.
79 Marian Gaborik NYR LW As exciting a player as there is in the game. Period. Working his way back from a significant shoulder injury.
80 Niklas Backstrom MIN G Talk of his demise is overblown. 2012: 2.43 GAA, .919 SV%. Career: 2.42 GAA, .918 SV%.
81 Mike Richards LOS C Richards failed to reach his previous levels of offense in his first year in LA: 18 goals, 26 assists.
82 Dany Heatley MIN LW His goal totals the past six years: 50, 41, 39, 39, 26, 24. Seems to have lost that extra gear.
83 Brian Campbell FLA D Recorded 53 points, the second best total at the position with 31 on the power play. A mere four goals though.
84 Danny Briere PHI C Failed to record 20 goals for the first time in a season of 70 games. Setup for a nice rebound in Philadelphia.
85 Dustin Brown LOS RW Hits everything on the ice and racks up shots. He's recorded 50 points in five straight campaigns.
86 Teemu Selanne ANA RW Four hundred eighty six years old -- and still a scoring ace. The last four years averaged 29 power-play points.
87 Patrik Elias NJD C It only seems like he has been skating since the Stone Age. Coming off a 26 goal, 78 point effort.
88 Jordan Staal CAR C Long a third-liner, Staal will get a chance to allow his offensive game to flourish. Scored 25 goals last year.
89 Jason Pominville BUF RW Only once in the last six seasons has he failed to record 62 points (he had 30 goals and 73 points in 2011).
90 Cory Schneider VAN G If Luongo is moved out of town as expected, he moves up like 25 spots. Career: 2.24 GAA, .928 save percentage.
91 Ryan Suter MIN D Had 46 points with a +15 rating, but might be more valuable in the real world than in Fantasy.
92 P.K. Subban MON D Has failed to reach 40 points the last two years but seems primed to take the next step in his third season.
93 Vincent Lecavalier TB C The last two years he's failed to record 55 points or appear in 70 games. Is that all there is at this point?
94 Evander Kane WPG LW Went from 14 to 19 to 30 goals. Fired 287 shots on net and upped his physical play as well (173 hits).
95 Matt Moulson NYI LW Showing growth from 30 to 31 to 36 goals the past three years. Is there a 40-goal season in his stick?
96 Ryane Clowe SJ LW Fell three penalty minutes short of a third straight 45 point, 100 PIM season. Solid and safe.
97 Dion Phaneuf TOR D Returned to double-digit goals (12) with 44 points, 92 PIMs and 202 shots on goal to negate his (-10) mark.
98 Paul Stastny COL C Basically a point-per-game skater his first four years. He's been at 0.72 the past two years.
99 Martin Havlat SAN RW A dismal first year in San Jose (27 points in 39 games). Don't forget about the uber-talented winger.
100 Tuukka Rask BOS G Gets his chance to take the reins. His career numbers are HOF worthy -- 2.20 GAA, .926 SV% in 102 games.
101 Craig Anderson OTT G Won 33 games and finished the year with a .925 save percentage in an abbreviated second half (16 games).
102 Max Pacioretty MON LW Returned from injury and exploded for 33 goals. One of 11 skaters with 30 goals and 285 shots on net.
103 Semyon Varlamov COL G A mixed first season as a starter. He absolutely dominated his last 23 games: 2.06 GAA, .932 SV%.
104 Niklas Kronwall DET D Scored 15 goals and 36 points for the Wings but somehow was saddled with a -2 rating.
105 Corey Crawford CHI G Won 30 games for second year in a row, but lost his starting gig at times and needs a hot start to solidify role.
106 Ryan Callahan NYR RW A complete player who scored 29 times, had 271 hits and took 235 shots on net.
107 Milan Michalek OTT LW Appears to be healthy after abdominal surgery. Finally lived up to expectations in year eight with 35 goals.
108 Chris Stewart STL RW Twelve months ago he was a must-own. A year after 15 goals and 30 points his career is at a crossroads.
109 Jaroslav Halak STL G Can't play much better than he did with a 1.97 GAA, .926 SV% & six shutouts in just 46 contests.
110 Tyler Myers BUF D Excellent as a rookie, passable as a sophomore, disappointing as a junior (8 goals, 15 assists, +5, 84 shots on goal).
111 Jeff Skinner CAR LW The dreaded sophomore slump cost him 11 goals and 19 points. He also lost 18 games, so factor that in.
112 Mike Cammalleri CGY C Scored 20 goals, but wasn't a power-play ace and he's now failed to skate in 70 games since 2008.
113 Brenden Morrow DAL LW Dreadful. A year after scoring 33 goals he recorded 26 points. No one works harder. Expect a rebound.
114 David Clarkson NJD RW The only skater in hockey with 30 goals, 138 PIMs, 165 hits and 225 shots on goal.
115 Wayne Simmonds PHI RW Excelled in his first season in Philly as he did a little bit of everything -- 28 goals, 114 PIMs, 197 shots.
116 David Krejci BOS C Averaging 62 points the past four years while coming off a career best season of 23 goals.
117 Kevin Bieksa VAN D One point and six PIMs short of a 50/100 effort. Does a little bit of everything.
118 Mark Streit NYI D That plus/minus was abysmal (-27), but he still produced a fourth straight year of at least 47 points.
119 Steve Downie COL LW Fourteen goals, 41 points and 137 PIMs are a nice package of skill and rough stuff.
120 Olli Jokinen WPG C Had a rebound effort in 2011 with his first 60-point season since 2007. Might be hard-pressed to repeat.
121 Ondrej Pavelec WPG G Played 68 games but that 29-28-9 record has to improve, not to mention that poor 2.91 GAA.
122 Nathan Horton FLA RW All about potential here as he was once again limited by injury (32 points in 46 games).
123 Brent Burns SAN D Given the Sharks' firepower it would seem his 2011 totals are the floor (11 goals, 26 assists).
124 Jason Garrison VAN D Lit it up for 16 goals, nine on the power play, and now gets to skate for one of the better teams in the league.
125 Brian Elliott STL G Statistically the best keeper in hockey: 1.56 GAA, .940 SV% led the league. Still looks to be behind Halak.
126 Patrice Bergeron BOS C One of the most complete players in the game, his total of 64 points was his best since 2006.
127 Valtteri Filppula DET LW With changes in Detroit came opportunity, and Valtteri excelled with 66 points and a +18 rating.
128 Stephen Weiss FLA C Three straight years of 20-goals and three times in four years he's also hit the 55-point level.
129 Nail Yakupov EDM RW The must-own rookie of the season? Yakupov can do it all on the ice and will try to emulate Landeskog's campaign.
130 Anders Lindback TAM G Should be able to hold off Garon in net. Only 38 games of NHL experience on his resume though.
131 Sergei Bobrovsky CLM G Should be able to hold off Mason and receive his first shot to be "the man" in his new home.
132 Sergei Gonchar OTT D It's been two years since he hit 50 points, failing in fact to record 40 in either of the past two.
133 John Carlson WAS D Last season was the same as the year before other than a 36-point drop in his plus/minus (-15).
134 Jose Theodore FLA G Coming off a solid season (2.46 GAA, .917 SV%), Luongo rumors hang over his head.
135 Justin Schultz EDM D Joined the Oilers after failing to sign with Ducks. Has been piling up points like Paul Coffey in the AHL.
136 Radim Vrbata PHX RW Raise your hand if you knew he scored 35 times, had 62 points and was a +24 skater. Put your hand down.
137 Brent Seabrook CHI D Steady. Scored 34 points, was a +21 skater, had 198 hits, blocked 165 shots and took 156 shots on net.
138 Mikko Koivu MIN C He'll never be a goal-scorer, but he can dish the puck at near-elite levels. All he needs is health.
139 Ray Whitney DAL LW Undersized and 40, that didn't stop Whitney from recording 24 goals and 77 points in his 20th season.
140 Tomas Plekanec MON C Failed to record 20 goals for the first time in six years, but still pumped home 200 shots for a fourth straight year.
141 T.J. Oshie STL RW A leader on and off the ice, his fourth season led to 19 goals and 54 points -- career bests.
142 Matt Carle TAM D Has settled in as an effective performer with 35 points the past three years. Returns to Tampa Bay.
143 Oliver Ekman-Larsson PHO D 2009 first-rounder exploded with 13 goals and 32 points in his first full season on the blue line.
144 Lubomir Visnovsky NYI D Catastrophic fall from 68 to 27 points at age 35. Doesn't want to be with the Isles, but who does?
145 Joffrey Lupul TOR LW Stayed out of the trainers' room and the result was an impressive season -- 25 goals, 42 assists.
146 Michael Del Zotto NYR D Finally was a plus skater at +20 to augment a nice offensive game (10 goals, 31 assists).
147 Devan Dubnyk EDM G Khabibulin is old (39) an in the last year of his deal so Dubnyk will likely get a shot to play a lot in the crease.
148 James Reimer TOR G The Leafs' keeper at the moment, heavy rumors have Toronto as a potential landing spot for Luongo.
149 Kevin Shattenkirk STL D Fired 178 shots on net while scoring nine times and handing out 34 assists for the Blues.
150 Shane Doan PHX RW Don't know why he re-signed with the Coyotes, but he will look to record 20 goals for 12th time in 13 years.
151 P.A. Parenteau COL RW Recorded 67 points on the Isles. He'll look to grow that number with the up-and-coming Avalanche.
152 Christian Ehrhoff BUD D Big time failure after signing a huge deal with the Sabres with five goals, 32 points and a -2 rating.
153 Tyler Ennis BUF C Undersized but productive. His pace last year, over 82 games, would have netted 58 points.
154 Drew Stafford BUF RW Lost 11 goals from the previous season but only fell off two points (50). Went from 19 to seven power-play points.
155 Braden Holtby WAS G Appears to be in the lead to backstop the Caps even with only 21 games of NHL experience under his belt.
156 Blake Wheeler WPG RW Finally lived up to the hype with 64 points including 31 over his final 32 games on the ice.
157 Erik Cole MON LW Coming off the best season of his career with a career-best 35 goals, including 11 on the power play.
158 Kimmo Timonen PHI D Thirty games short of 1,000, he can still produce points (37 or more in 10 straight seasons).
159 Evgeni Nabokov NYI G You can't take DiPietro seriously, so it appears Nabby could start after solid return: 2.55 GAA, .914 SV%.
160 Daniel Alfredsson OTT RW Nearly 40 years old, he can still score as evidenced by his 27 markers and 59 points.
161 Nikita Nikitin CLM D You might have missed it but he really took off with the Blue Jackets recording 32 points in a mere 54 games.
162 Justin Williams LOS RW Has settled in as a winger who will be in the 20 goal, 60 point range if he can stay on the ice.
163 Mark Giordano CGY D Fell off his 2010 pace but he's still averaged nine goals and 33 points the past three seasons.
164 Dennis Wideman CGY D Had an epic season last year with the Caps, scoring 11 times with 46 points and 175 shots on goal.
165 Teddy Purcell TAM RW He doesn't hit anyone, doesn't block shots or produce PIMs, but he scores -- 24 goals and 65 points.
166 Cam Fowler ANA D Failed to build on his rookie season (10g, 30a) with five goals, 24 assists. A -53 performer in two seasons.
167 Mike Fisher NSH C Mr. Carrie Underwood had a strong first season in Nashville with 24 goals and 27 assists.
168 Michal Neuvirth WAS G Fell on his face last season with a terrible set of ratios in 38 games: 2.82 GAA, .903 SV%.
169 John-Michael Liles TOR D His first year in Toronto was seen as a failure by some, but he was still on an 82-game pace of 34 points.
170 Ales Hemsky EDM C Hemsky could be ranked 100 spots higher in next year's rankings if he can stay healthy this season.
171 Tomas Fleishmann WAS LW Coming off a career season -- 27 goals and 61 points -- the second time in his career he hit the 20-goal mark.
172 Ryan Kesler VAN C Hopes to be back in December (shoulder). Coming off his worst season in four years (49 points).
173 Martin Erat NSH RW The most consistent player in hockey? From 2003 through last year he's had between 49 and 58 points each season.
174 Derek Stepan NYR RW Upped his game in his second season scoring 51 points with a +14 an a more physical game.
175 Chris Kunitz PIT LW A feisty winger who, if he skates as a top-six forward, should again score 25 goals -- his average the last two years.
176 Brad Marchand BOS LW Gets everything out of his undersized frame. The last two years he has 49 goals and a +56 rating.
177 Kris Versteeg FLA RW Twenty-three goals and 54 points is nice, but he slowed tremendously with 16 points in his last 33 games.
178 Andrew Ladd WPG LW Might be the quietest 57-goal scorer the past two years in the NHL. Shot the puck 265 times last season.
179 Jaromir Jagr DAL LW Can still put up points, 54 in 74 games, and be a force on the power play (20 PP points).
180 Justin Faulk CAR D Twenty-two points is a solid effort for a rookie. Has to improve his two-way play though as -16 is unsightly.
181 David Perron STL RW Finally healthy, Perron was a monster last season with 21 goals, 21 assists and a +19 in just 57 games.
182 Ryan O'Reilly COL C Took the next step in year three with 18 goals and 55 points. Only 11 shots short of 200 as well.
183 Marcus Foligno BUF LW The burly winger had 13 points in a 14-game cup of coffee and got off to a great start in the AHL during the lockout.
184 James Wisniewski CLM D His first season in Columbus was a disappointment, but he still has 48 points in his last 80 games.
185 Michael Ryder DAL RW Scored 35 goals after recording 36 the previous two years.
186 Dennis Seidenberg BOS D A solid all-around rearguard who had 23 points and a +15 rating last year. A solid roster filler.
187 Tomas Kaberle MON D He can still run a power play, though he's not likely to lead Fantasy squad blue-liners in points.
188 Mathieu Garon TAM G Won 23 games for Tampa though his 2.85 GAA and .901 SV% aren't going to help you in this day and age.
189 Nikolai Khabibulin EDM G Terrific start (1.12 GAA in October) but has long been forgotten thanks to finish: .887 SV% in the second half.
190 Josh Harding MIN G One of the best backups in the league. He owns a career .916 save percentage in 117 games.
191 Sheldon Souray ANA D Soured after an amazing start (13 points, +10 in 24 games). Can still run a power play with aplomb.
192 Marek Zidlicky NJD D At the end of his rope? Twenty-two points last season, 24 in 2010. He had 43 in 2009.
193 Alex Goligoski DAL D Returned to the 30-point level with health, but is sporting a mere even rating his last 94 games.
194 Brandon Dubinsky CLM LW Hits everything and has back-to-back 100 PIM seasons. However, fell to 10 goals after 44 previous two years.
195 Patric Hornqvist NSH RW Averaged 26 goals in 2009-10 and recorded 27 last season. Shoots a ton -- 230 or more in three straight campaigns.
196 Sean Couturier PHI C Solid as a rookie with 27 points and a +18 rating, he could double that point total in his second season.
197 Adam Henrique NJD C Will try to build on an impressive rookie season that included 16 goals and 35 assists.
198 Nikolai Kulemin TOR RW After 30 goals, falling to 28 points isn't acceptable no matter what the excuse might be.
199 Stephane Robidas DAL D Failed to record 200 hits for first time in three years and had lowest point total (22) since 2006.
200 Ben Scrivens TOR G Only has value if the Leafs don't make the move to add Roberto Luongo in net.

Tobias Enstrom
Jets' Enstrom Sets Up Two Goals In Loss
Tobias Enstrom, D, WPG
12:07 PM
News: Tobias Enstrom assisted on both of the Jets' two goals in Friday's loss to Tampa Bay.
Analysis: Tobias Enstrom now has six points (all assists) in seven games this season, to go with a minus-1 rating. Playing the point on the top power-play unit and averaging 23:49 of ice time per game, Enstrom will continue to produce offense. After a somewhat disappointing 30-point season in 2013-14, expect Enstrom to return to the 40-50 point range in 2014-15.

Leon Draisaitl
Oilers' Draisaitl Grabs First Career Goal
Leon Draisaitl, C, EDM
8:38 AM
News: Leon Draisaitl tallied his first career goal in Friday's 6-3 victory over the Hurricanes.
Analysis: The goal would go down as the game-winner on the night, as Leon Draisaitl scooped up his own rebound and backhanded the puck into the net to give the Oilers a 4-3 lead with 7:05 left in the contest. Draisaitl has looked raw for the most part in his eight contests with the Oilers, but he's begun to hit his stride over the last two games, contributing two points and seven shots on goal. After Draisaitl plays his next game Monday against the Habs, the Oilers will have a tough decision to make in choosing to either keep the rookie with the parent club for the entire season, or send him down to his junior team, WHL Prince Albert.

Semyon Varlamov
Avs' Varlamov Makes 26 Saves For First Win
Semyon Varlamov, G, COL
8:35 AM
News: Semyon Varlamov made 26 saves on 29 shots in Friday's win over the Canucks.
Analysis: It was the first win of the season for Semyon Varlamov, who got loads of offensive support in the blowout victory. Varlamov is an elite goaltender, and if the young Avalanche team in front of him can get going, expect him to rack up the wins -- much like he did last season.

Jordan Eberle
Oilers' Eberle Contributes Three Points Friday
Jordan Eberle, RW, EDM
8:32 AM
News: Jordan Eberle broke out with two goals and an assist in Friday's 6-3 win over the Hurricanes.
Analysis: The goals were Jordan Eberle's long-awaited first two of the season, a welcome relief for a player who found the net 28 times in 2013-14. His first tally involved an impressive bit of work on both ends of the ice, as he picked off a Jay Harrison pass before finishing the possession off with a score on a 2-on-1 with teammate Taylor Hall. Despite the goal drought, Eberle has distributed the puck well enough in the Oilers' previous contests to keep him producing at close to a point-per-game clip on the season.

Marc Methot
Sens' Methot Not Expected To Travel
Marc Methot, D, OTT
8:28 AM
News: Marc Methot (back) is not expected to travel with the team on their upcoming road trip, Ian Mendes of TSN 1200 reports.
Analysis: Marc Methot has been skating recently, but hasn't been doing hockey related drills, and still has yet to be cleared for contact. The Sens will return home Thursday against the Blackhawks, but it seems unlikely that Methot will be available for that game at this point.

Erik Johnson
Avs' Johnson Scores On Power Play In Win
Erik Johnson, D, COL
8:27 AM
News: Erik Johnson netted a power-play goal, added an assist, and was a plus-2 in Friday's win over Vancouver.
Analysis: Erik Johnson only had one point entering Friday's game, but the blueliner played a key role in the blowout victory over the Canucks. Johnson continues to log big minutes at even strength and on the power play, meaning his production should begin to pick up. If the Avalanche start scoring more, as they did Friday, Johnson should start appearing on the scoresheet more frequently.

Ben Scrivens
Scrivens Leads Oilers To Third Straight Win
Ben Scrivens, G, EDM
8:26 AM
News: Ben Scrivens recorded his third consecutive victory Friday against the Hurricanes, stopping 27 of 30 shots in the 6-3 win.
Analysis: Ben Scrivens performed a little less steadily against the Hurricanes than he did earlier in the week in wins over the Capitals and Lightning, but he didn't require his best effort to dispatch the league's only winless team. The goalie seems to be settling in nicely after a horrendous first three outings of 2014-15, which continue to keep his season GAA above 3.00 and save percentage below .900, despite the winning streak.

Anton Khudobin
Hurricanes' Khudobin Flops Friday
Anton Khudobin, G, CAR
8:22 AM
News: Anton Khudobin surrendered five goals on 28 shots faced in Friday's 6-3 loss to Edmonton.
Analysis: Just when Anton Khudobin seemed poised to supplant Cam Ward as the Hurricanes' No. 1 goalie once and for all, he turned in a stinker of a performance to cast further doubt on the team's netminding situation. After a respectable first two periods, Khudobin fell apart in the final 20 minutes, turning a 2-2 game into a laugher. The loss dropped Khudobin to 0-3-1 on the season and gave the winless Hurricanes more questions than answers.

Robin Lehner
Sens' Lehner Will Start Saturday
Robin Lehner, G, OTT
8:20 AM
News: Robin Lehner will get the call between the pipes against the Devils on Saturday, Brent Wallace of TSN reports.
Analysis: Robin Lehner will get a second consecutive start Saturday, and has been stellar in both appearances so far this year. He's 2-0-0 to date, and has allowed just four goals on 80 shots over all. Craig Anderson is expected to start Sunday's game against the Blackhawks in the second of back-to-back games.

Tyson Barrie
Avs' Barrie Nabs Three Assists In Win
Tyson Barrie, D, COL
8:18 AM
News: Tyson Barrie collected a trio of assists in Friday's win over Vancouver.
Analysis: After a slow start, Tyson Barrie has cranked up the offense, recording a goal and four assists in his last three games. Skating on the Avs' lethal power play, Barrie should surpass the career-high 38 points he recorded in 2013-14.
