Stecher is starting to get involved on offense -- he has two assists over his last six games since snapping a 22-game drought. The 28-year-old still shouldn't be expected to contribute much, and certainly not enough to help in fantasy. He's at a meager four helpers with 48 shots on goal, 47 hits, 67 blocked shots, 23 PIM and a minus-2 rating through 49 contests.... See More ... See Less

Crouse has two goals and four helpers over his last five outings, and he's up to 28 points, 82 shots on net, 107 hits, 33 blocked shots and a minus-1 rating through 44 contests this season....

The 26-year-old improved to 13-17-4 with a 3.19 GAA and a .907 save percentage through 35 contests overall.

This is a pretty big loss for the Coyotes and fantasy managers alike, as Gostisbehere has provided solid offensive production from the blue line this season, picking up nine goals, 29 points and 99 shots through 48 contests. Given the expected length of his absence, Gostisbehere will likely land on injured reserve in the coming days.... See More ... See Less
