Montour extended his point streak to 10 games with an assist in Monday's 7-1 win over the Lightning.
Montour is enjoying a career year with his running total comprised of 10 goals and 34 assists through 51 games. The difference this year has been his expanded role on the man advantage, for which he's posted 18 points and averaging a whopping 4:15 of ice time.
White has played in just four of 14 games since the start of January.
White was on a conditioning loan early in January, but the 25-year-old has yet to make a case for consistent playing time with the Ducks. He's at two assists and a minus-4 rating through 20 contests. He'd have a better shot to play if the Ducks chose to use seven defensemen more often, but without much of a scoring touch, he's not an option in most fantasy formats.
Hanifin registered an assist and two shots on goal in Monday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Rangers.
Hanifin sent in a centering pass that deflected in off Andrew Mangiapane's skate in the third period. The helper gave Hanifin five points and a plus-5 rating over his last five games. The 26-year-old defenseman is up to 22 points, 116 shots on net, 81 blocked shots, 55 hits, 31 PIM and a plus-11 rating through 50 appearances. He's in a top-pairing role and can provide solid defensive depth for fantasy managers.
Andersson recorded a power-play assist, two shots on goal and three blocked shots in Monday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Rangers.
Andersson snapped a three-game point drought by setting up a Tyler Toffoli goal in the second period. The 26-year-old Andersson has turned a bit streaky since the start of December, but he's still a high-scoring blueliner that logs huge minutes for the Flames. He's up to 34 points (15 on the power play), 111 shots on net, 89 blocked shots and a plus-6 rating through 51 appearances.
Lindholm notched a power-play assist, two hits, two blocked shots and a minus-2 rating in Monday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Rangers.
Lindholm had 11 points in 12 contests in January, and he picked up right where he left off prior to the All-Star break. The 28-year-old helped out on a Tyler Toffoli tally in the second period. Lindholm continues to thrive in a top-line role with time in all situations. He has 46 points (15 on the power play), 109 shots on net, 54 hits and a plus-1 rating through 50 appearances.
Backlund produced two assists, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Monday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Rangers.
Backlund helped out on third-period tallies by Andrew Mangiapane and Michael Stone. The 33-year-old Backlund has gone nine games without a goal, but he has nine assists and a plus-4 rating in that span. The veteran center is up to 31 points, 155 shots on net, 55 hits, 28 PIM and a plus-13 rating through 51 contests, putting him on track to reach the 40-point mark for the first time since 2019-20.
Stone scored a goal on three shots and blocked three shots in Monday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Rangers.
Stone had produced just one assist over 15 games since his last goal. He gave the Flames a 4-3 lead with a long-range shot that deceived Jaroslav Halak in the third period Monday. Stone's five goals are his most since the 2015-16 campaign, and his 10 points make this just the second time he's reached double-digits as a member of the Flames. He's added 76 shots on net, 45 hits, 46 blocked shots, 29 PIM and a plus-4 rating through 41 outings this season.
Toffoli scored a power-play goal on five shots in Monday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Rangers.
Toffoli has four goals and two assists, including three power-play points, over his last six games. The 30-year-old winger is up to 19 tallies, 43 points (16 on the power play), 156 shots on net, 46 hits and a plus-7 rating through 51 contests overall. He's continuing to thrive in a top-six role with time on the top power-play unit, so fantasy managers should be comfortable putting him in their lineups.
Hartman produced an assist and two PIM in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Coyotes.
Hartman reached the 10-assist mark with a secondary helper on Jonas Brodin's third-period tally. It's been 10 games since Hartman last scored a goal, and with just three helpers and a minus-7 rating in that span, fantasy managers can likely find better options on the waiver wire. He's at 15 points, 66 shots on net, 29 hits, 49 PIM and a minus-2 rating through 27 contests overall.
Addison notched an assist, three shots on goal, two hits, two blocked shots and two PIM in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Coyotes.
Addison has continued to contribute solid offense with four assists over his last eight games. He's also gone minus-7 in that span, indicating he still has work to do in the defensive zone. He was scratched Dec. 9 due to defensive trouble, so his spot in the lineup can't be considered totally safe yet. The 22-year-old has three goals, 22 assists, 60 shots on goal, 30 blocked shots, 20 PIM and a minus-15 rating through 48 appearances.
