Erik Karlsson
Senators' Erik Karlsson: Bags two helpers in win over Panthers
Erik Karlsson, D, OTT
2:35 AM
News: Karlsson racked up a pair of assists in Sunday's win over the Panthers.

Just another day at the office for Karlsson, who is up to 54 points in 60 games. The Swedish rearguard is an offensive machine who is never afraid to take chances and join the rush. He's reached double digits in goals for the sixth consecutive time in a full season and is consistently piling on helpers. You know what to do.

Blues' Alex Pietrangelo: Gets stitches after Sunday's game
Alex Pietrangelo, D, STL
12:30 AM
News: Pietrangelo received stitches on his ear after Sunday's loss to Chicago, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports. He was struck with a puck while sitting on the bench.

The issue didn't force the veteran blueliner to miss any time during the contest, and there hasn't been any indication that he'll be forced to sit out any upcoming games, the first of which comes Tuesday at home against Edmonton. Despite the losing effort -- and puck to the head -- Pietrangelo managed to score his ninth goal of the year in 25:44 of ice time Sunday.

Jason Garrison
Lightning's Jason Garrison: Could be moved out at deadline
Jason Garrison, D, TB
2/26/2017
News: Garrison, who has one year left on a $4.6 million contract, could be traded by the deadline.

Garrison has a no-movement clause, which means he'll need to be protected in the expansion draft. Garrison's offensive production has slowed to a near trickle -- he has just one goal and seven points in 56 games -- so, his contract is far too high to pay a guy best suited for third pairing duty. The Bolts would be loathe to lose a young player on his account.

Ryan Ellis
Predators' Ryan Ellis: Scores, blocks five shots in victory
Ryan Ellis, D, NSH
2/26/2017
News: Ellis posted a goal, three shots and five blocked shots in a 5-4 victory over the Oilers on Sunday.

The 26-year-old defenseman filled the stat sheet once again Sunday and in the process, matched his career high in goals. He now has 10 scores and 28 points, which is also just four shy of a career high. In addition to the offense, Ellis was second only to Roman Josi in ice time and led the Predators in shorthanded minutes, which is where he accumulated most of his blocked shots. Ellis is worth owning in all standard leagues, but he is a particularly intriguing option in formats with time on ice and blocked shots.

Brandon Davidson
Oilers' Brandon Davidson: Scratched Sunday in Nashville

2/26/2017
News: Davidson was a healthy scratch in Sunday's game against the Predators.

He found himself off Sunday's lineup with both Darnell Nurse and Adam Larsson returning to the lineup. When the Edmonton blue line is healthy, Davidson's role is reduced. Though he saw a hefty workload a couple times in February, he has just one point in 28 games this year and there's no guarantee how often he's on the ice with better options available to the team.

Torey Krug
Bruins' Torey Krug: Records three assists in victory
Torey Krug, D, BOS
2/26/2017
News: Krug posted three assists, one of which came on the power play, in a 6-3 victory over the Stars on Sunday.

The 25-year-old snapped his point streak Wednesday against the Ducks, but he started a new one Thursday and picked up his second multi-point effort of the month versus Dallas. Since Feb. 4, Krug has a goal and 10 points in eight games. The strong month has Krug just three points shy his career-high 44 points from last season.

Eric Gryba
Oilers' Eric Gryba: Scratched Sunday
Eric Gryba, D, EDM
2/26/2017
News: Gryba was a healthy scratch in Sunday's game against Nashville.

With Darnell Nurse and Adam Larsson both healthy Sunday, Gryba found himself on the outside. A healthy blue line in Edmonton jeopardizes any fantasy value you might in Gryba. He's a cusp player when everyone is healthy.

Ben Hutton
Canucks' Ben Hutton: Latest victim of mumps outbreak
Ben Hutton, D, VAN
2/26/2017
News: Hutton is currently experiencing symptoms of mumps.

Hutton is just the most recent addition to the Canucks lengthy walking wounded list, as they have several players caught up in this mumps outbreak and also have a few players with other injuries. No word yet on if the virus will keep him out of Tuesday's matchup with Detroit, but the team will certainly be hoping he can go, as the ranks of its injured consists of five defensemen already.

Analysis: 

Adam Larsson
Oilers' Adam Larsson: Ready to return Sunday
Adam Larsson, D, EDM
2/26/2017
News: Larsson (lower body) is in the lineup for Sunday's away game against the Predators, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

Larsson returns to the lineup after missing the previous two games with the minor ailment. He'll likely round out the third defensive pairing with Darnell Nurse, who is returning Sunday after missing 35 games. Eric Gryba and Brandon Davidson will be the resulting healthy scratches.

Analysis: 

Darnell Nurse
Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Returns Sunday
Darnell Nurse, D, EDM
2/26/2017
News: Nurse will return to the Oilers lineup Sunday following a 35-game absence.

Nurse hasn't played since Dec. 1. His return is great for the Oilers and adds a decent depth option on defense in many fantasy formats. However, after an absence that long you may want to wait and see him playing 100 percent before rostering him.
