  • Brock Nelson C | NYI

    Islanders' Brock Nelson: Keeps point streak alive

    Neslon contributed an assist in Monday's 2-1 win over the Flyers.

    Nelson is rocking a seven-game point streak comprised of four goals and four assists. Fantasy managers recognize him as a steady offensive presence, and this year he's taken his game to new heights, as he's averaging a career high 0.89 points per contest.

  • Panthers' Carter Verhaeghe: Monster game versus Bolts

    Verhaeghe potted two goals to complement another pair of assists in Monday's 7-1 win over the Lightning.

    Verhaeghe was instrumental in helping his coach, Paul Maurice, to career victory No. 800, and it came at the expense of a five-time NHL All-Star goalie in Andrei Vasilevskiy. This was already the 14th multi-point game for Verhaeghe, whose already banked a career-high 28 goals to complement 19 assists through 52 contests.

  • Eric Staal C | FLA

    Panthers' Eric Staal: Takes advantage of turnover

    Staal scored on his only shot in Monday's 7-1 win over the Lightning.

    Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy stepped out of the crease and misplayed the puck, which resulted in a relatively easy goal for Staal. The veteran has eight goals and the same number of assists through 43 games in his debut season with the Panthers.

  • Islanders' Mathew Barzal: Brushes twine in victory

    Barzal found the back of the net in Monday's 2-1 win over the Flyers.

    Barzal put some lumber on a Noah Dobson shot and deflected the puck into the cage for his 13th goal and 44th point of the season. He's been clutch with five game-winning goals, and the addition of Bo Horvat -- formerly the Canucks captain -- figures to be a major boon to Barzal down the stretch.

  • Panthers' Brandon Montour: Adds helper in rout

    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.

  • Colton White D | ANA

    Ducks' Colton White: Not seeing much playing 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.

  • Noah Hanifin D | CGY

    Flames' Noah Hanifin: Provides assist

    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.

  • Flames' Rasmus Andersson: Logs power-play helper

    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.

  • Flames' Elias Lindholm: Helps out on power play

    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.

  • Flames' Mikael Backlund: Dishes two assists Monday

    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.
