Zac Dalpe
Wild's Zac Dalpe: Placed on waivers
Zac Dalpe, C, MIN

News: Dalpe was put on waivers Sunday, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The center was put on waivers to reset his waiver clock, as well as to give the Wild time to react before Monday's game if he were to get claimed. If he clears, he will stay in the NHL and is expected to play in Minnesota's next three games, which come in a four-day stretch.

Brad Richardson
Coyotes' Brad Richardson: Skates with team Sunday
Brad Richardson, C, ARI
1:40 PM
News: Richardson (leg) skated at Sunday's morning skate with teammates.

The forward's return timeline as been murky, but this new development seems like he'll be able to return within the next few weeks. With nine points in 16 games before going down, if he is able to get back on that scoring track, Richardson would be a solid fantasy play.

Alexander Burmistrov
Coyotes' Alex Burmistrov: Won't play Sunday
Alexander Burmistrov, C, ARI

News: Burmistrov (upper body) won't play Sunday against Buffalo.

The center left Friday's game due to the injury, and despite being described as a "minor upper-body injury," he will still miss time. His next chance to return will come on Tuesday in Boston.

Gregg McKegg
Panthers' Greg McKegg: Put on waivers Sunday
Gregg McKegg, C, FLA
1:20 PM
News: McKegg was put on waivers Sunday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

The winger has a paltry six points in 33 games in the NHL this season, so he hasn't been much of a scoring threat. If he clears waivers, and with his scoring output he should, he'll head to AHL Springfield.

Nathan MacKinnon
Avalanche's Nathan MacKinnon: Contributes with two helpers Saturday
Nathan MacKinnon, C, COL
1:10 PM
News: MacKinnon posted two assists in Saturday's win over the Sabres.

It was just the third point in eight games for MacKinnon, who hasn't scored in 11 outings. The 21-year-old has explosive skill, but he's struggled along with the rest of Colorado this season, managing just 12 goals. His 41 points make him worth owning in most leagues, but don't expect him to break out suddenly given the team's place in the standings.

Analysis: 

Chris Tierney
Sharks' Chris Tierney: Picks up two assists in Vancouver
Chris Tierney, C, SJ
11:55 AM
News: Tierney had two helpers in Saturday's win over the Canucks.

They were the first points in nine games for Tierney, who had been struggling to produce offense. The 22-year-old skates on the third line and has chipped in with six goals, but he's been too inconsistent to be trusted in most formats. He's still on track for a career year, however, and is capable of having a big night, so you can do worse if you're searching for a depth guy.

Analysis: 

Ryan Carter
Wild's Ryan Carter: Inks one-year, two-way deal
Ryan Carter, C, MIN
11:50 AM
News: Carter (shoulder) signed a prorated one-year, two-way contract with the Wild on Sunday, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Carter's career appeared in jeopardy following surgery on his right shoulder last season, but he will receive another shot with the Wild. However, it's unlikely the veteran will make enough of an impact to be worthy of consideration in the vast majority of fantasy leagues. He only tallied 15 points in his best NHL season. The contract suggests he's no longer dealing with a shoulder issue.

Analysis: 

Patrick Marleau
Sharks' Patrick Marleau: Burns Canucks with game-winner
Patrick Marleau, C, SJ
11:45 AM
News: Marleau netted the game-winning goal Saturday against the Canucks.

It was the 22nd goal of the season for Marleau, who continues to get it done against the Canucks. The veteran has scored in back-to-back games and remains a dynamite fantasy threat on one of the top teams in the Western Conference. His 35 points in 61 games are nothing out of the ordinary, but Marleau is a reliable goal-scorer who finds the back of the net consistently. Use him well.

Analysis: 

Bracken Kearns
Islanders' Bracken Kearns: Assigned to minors
Bracken Kearns, C, NYI
10:10 AM
News: Kearns was assigned to AHL Bridgeport on Sunday, Shannon Hogan of MSG Network reports.

Kearns appeared in two games during his first stint with the Islanders of the season, failing to score a point and adding two PIM, five hits and three shots on goal in those contests. Though he's 35 years old, Kearns has been one of the productive scorers at Bridgeport this season and could resurface at the NHL level if the Islanders incur more injuries at forward.

Analysis: 

Boone Jenner
Blue Jackets' Boone Jenner: Two points in Saturday's rout
Boone Jenner, C, CLB
10:00 AM
News: Jenner scored a goal and an assist, adding six shots on net, four hits, a blocked shot and a plus-2 rating, in Saturday's 7-0 drubbing of the Islanders.

The Blue Jackets were flying Saturday coming off their bye week, bucking the trend of teams looking rusty after their layoff, but Jenner arguably had the best game of the bunch with his ferocious play in all three zones. The 23-year-old has emerged from his first half doldrums with three goals, five points, a plus-3 rating, 26 shots and 17 hits over his last six games, and looks set to be a fantasy force down the stretch given the wide range of categories in which he can make an impact.
