News: Alex Goligoski
dished out a pair of assists in Sunday's 6-5 win over the Oilers.
Analysis: Alex Goligoski
had gone four consecutive without a point and now has 15 points through 32 games. The 29-year-old likely won't match his career-best output of 42 points from last season, but he should surpass the 30-point barrier.
News: Dougie Hamilton
had a productive night, scoring two goals on six shots and dishing out an assist in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Sabres.
Analysis: Dougie Hamilton
's had a solid season so far, as he now has seven goals and 13 assists through 34 games. The 21-year-old should easily pass his career-high of 25 points set last season as he's seventh in goals among defenseman.
News: Zdeno Chara
dished out a pair of assists in 27:24 worth of ice time in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Sabres.
Analysis: Zdeno Chara
now has four points in six contests since returning from a knee injury that held him out for over a month. The 37-year-old has seven points now in 15 games, and will lead the way in minutes most nights on the blue line.
News: Andrej Meszaros
scored on his only shot in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Bruins.
It's Andrej Meszaros
' first goal of the season, and the blueliner now has five points through 22 games. His playing time has been limited this season between injuries and being a healthy scratched, so the 29-year-old doesn't have a ton of fantasy value.
News: Anton Stralman
has just one point -- an assist -- in his last 11 games.
An offensive slow down was inevitable, but this is downright sluggish. Keep him on your bench. And scan the wire for a replacement -- you will likely need to find someone else if this slump continues.
News: Mike Weber
(knee) is targeting a return for Tuesday against the Red Wings, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Mike Weber
has missed the Sabres' previous five games, including Sunday, with a knee injury. If he's unable to make a return Tuesday, his next opportunity to get on the ice will be against the Islanders on Saturday.
News: Stephane Robidas
will be a healthy scratch Sunday against the Blackhawks, Paul Hendrick of Leafs TV reports.
Analysis: Stephane Robidas
has played in 32 games this season but will be given a much deserved rest Sunday. The 37-year-old's next opportunity to take the ice will be against the Stars on Tuesday.
News: Seth Jones
failed to crack the scoresheet during Saturday's 6-5 OT win over Minnesota, marking the 12th time in the past 13 games he has been held without a point. He now has just six points - all assists - in 31 games so far this season.
After posting a respectable 25 points in 77 games as a rookie last year, Seth Jones
is not even on pace to crack the 20-point mark this season. The Preds are clearly being patient with their fourth overall pick from the 2013 draft, however fantasy owners need not be as forgiving. Feel free to bench him in favour of a more productive blue line option - or drop him outright if the right opportunity presents itself.
News: Tyler Myers
(lower body) will miss Sunday's game against the Bruins, Mike Harrington of Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Tyler Myers
was initially listed as questionable due to the lower body injury, but apparently isn't healthy enough to go. The newly-recalled Tim Schaller will likely draw into the lineup in his place.
