He has nine goals and 41 points in 64 games this season. He's on pace to surpass the 50-point mark for the first time since 2008-09.

Ken Hitchcock expects Olli Jokinen to make his Blues' debut on Saturday.

The Blues are taking on the Toronto Maple Leafs, who traded Jokinen to St. Louis on Monday. The 36-year-old played just six games with the Leafs. Jokinen has three goals and seven points in 54 games this season. He doesn't have any value in standard fantasy leagues.
Mar 5 - 6:29 PM

Dennis Wideman said he enjoyed his stint with the Boston Bruins.

Wideman played in Boston from 2006 to 2010. "I enjoyed the city a lot, where I lived in the north end and the whole city. I really enjoyed, just the quality of life here. We had some good times here. We had some good teams and some great playoff series’ and things like that. I really enjoyed playing here." The 31-year-old has 12 goals and 37 points in 62 games this season.
Mar 5 - 6:23 PM

David Schlemko will make his Flames' debut against the Boston Bruins on Thursday.

"Its huge for me," he said. "This year hasn't gone the way I wanted, especially lately. I'm going to take advantage of the opportunity." The 27-year-old was claimed off waivers from Dallas on Sunday. He is expected to play on a pairing with Raphael Diaz. Schlemko has one goal and four points in 25 games this season.
Mar 5 - 6:20 PM

Eddie Lack will get the start in Thursday's game vs. Arizona.

Jacob Markstrom was horrible in Vancouver's last game against San Jose (three goals on four shots) so the Canucks are going back to Lack. The 27-year-old has an 8-8-2 record with a 2.58 goals-against-average and a .915 save percentage.
Mar 5 - 6:11 PM

Jared Spurgeon won't return from a concussion on Thursday.

"It's tough. Not a lot of practice time, so you use these pregame skates like practices," Spurgeon said. "But it's tough because with what I had, you can't do much, so you lose it pretty fast when guys are playing every other day." He might be ready to play on Friday against Carolina.
Mar 5 - 6:06 PM

Pekka Rinne will get the start in Thursday's game against the New York Islanders.

The 32-year-old has been one of the two best goalies in the NHL in 2014-15 but he is going through a bit of a rough stretch of late. Rinne has dropped each of his last three starts but he did get a night off in Nashville's last game (vs. New Jersey). He has a 35-11-3 record with a 2.10 goals-against-average and a .928 save percentage.
Mar 5 - 5:55 PM

Jaroslav Halak will get the start in Thursday's game against the Predators.

Halak dropped his last game against the Dallas Stars in overtime. The 29-year-old got off to a hot start in the first half of the season but his numbers have cooled off a little bit lately. Halak has a 33-13-1 record with a 2.47 goals-against-average and a .911 save percentage.
Mar 5 - 5:52 PM

Ben Bishop will get the start in Thursday's game against Toronto.

Bishop served as the team's backup goalie on Tuesday after taking a puck to the mid-section during the morning skate. Fantasy owners will be relieved to see that the injury didn't keep Bishop out for very long. The 28-year-old has a 31-11-3 record with a 2.39 goals-against-average and a .913 save percentage.
Mar 5 - 5:47 PM

Jonathan Bernier will be between the pipes for Thursday's game against Tampa Bay.

As bad as the Leafs have been, Bernier has won three of his last four starts. He is coming off a 40 save performance in a win over Florida on Tuesday. The 26-year-old has a 19-19-5 record with a 2.70 goals-against-average and a .916 save percentage this season.
Mar 5 - 5:44 PM

Erik Gudbranson will sit out Thursday's match against Dallas because of flu-like symptoms.

Consider him day-to-day. He has 10 points, 50 penalty minutes and 159 hits in 61 games this campaign.
Mar 5 - 5:43 PM

Willie Mitchell won't play Thursday night because he's feeling under the weather.

His return from an upper-body injury has been put on hold because of flu-like symptoms.
Mar 5 - 5:39 PM

Kari Lehtonen will get the start in Thursday's game against Florida.

Lehtonen is coming off a 35 save performance in a win over the Islanders. The 31-year-old has struggled with consistency this year. He has a 26-13-10 record with a 2.95 goals-against-average and a .906 save percentage in 52 games this season. Lehtonen has just one win in his last four starts (1-1-2).
Mar 5 - 5:39 PM

Braden Holtby will get the start in Thursday's game vs. Minnesota.

A year ago, no one would have been intrigued by a goaltending matchup featuring Holtby and Devan Dubnyk, but they are two of the better goalies in the NHL in 2015. Holtby has won two straight starts and he has allowed just three goals in those games. He has an overall record of 31-15-9 to go along with a 2.17 goals-against-average and a .925 save percentage.
