Mike Condon allowed two goals on 38 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

He also gave up three goals on Chicago's seven shootout attempts. Condon has now dropped four consecutive decisions. He owns a 4-10-5 record with a 3.31 goals-against-average and a .901 save percentage this season. Condon shouldn't pop up on your fantasy radar. He'll continue to serve as Craig Anderson's backup goalie.

The Blackhawks goalie has now won two of his last three games since dropping four straight decisions earlier this month. The win improves his record to 7-12-3 in 2017-18.

He's up to 16 goals and 37 points in 58 games. 11 of those points have come in his last eight games. Zack Smith also scored for the Senators in the loss.

He finished the game with a plus-1 rating, five shots on goal and one hit in 23:40 of ice time. The 29-year-old now has 23 goals and 57 points in 61 games this season.

Darcy Kuemper signed a two-year, $3.7 million extension with the Arizona Coyotes.

That works out to an AAV of $1.85 million. The Coyotes just acquired Kuemper from the Los Angeles Kings. He was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent, but the extension was clearly part of the deal. Kuemper has a 10-1-3 record with a 2.10 goals-against-average and a .932 save percentage this season. He'll likely get a lot more starts now that he's in Arizona, but he won't be able to win as many games.
Feb 21 - 7:19 PM

The Los Angeles Kings have acquired Scott Wedgewood from the Arizona Coyotes.

It's the second time Wedgewood has been traded this season. He was also moved from New Jersey to Arizona earlier this season. The 25-year-old has a 5-9-4 record with a 3.45 goals-against-average and a .893 save percentage. He'll serve as a backup goaltender to Jonathan Quick in LA, which means he won't have any fantasy value.
Feb 21 - 7:07 PM

The Los Angeles Kings have acquired Tobias Rieder from the Arizona Coyotes.

The Kings also got goalie Scott Wedgewood in the package. Rieder is scheduled to become a restricted free agent at the end of this season. The 25-year-old has eight goals and 19 points in 58 games this season. This trade won't really give him much of a fantasy boost. The Coyotes will retain 15 percent of his remaining salary.

The Arizona Coyotes have acquired Darcy Kuemper from the Los Angeles Kings.

The Kings are reportedly getting forward Tobias Reider and goalie Scott Wedgewood in the deal. Kuemper is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, but Coyotes beat reporter Craig Morgan is reporting that Arizona has inked him to an extension. Kuemper has been one of the better backups in the league this year, as he has a 10-1-3 record with a 2.10 goals-against-average and a .932 save percentage this season.
Feb 21 - 6:54 PM

Alex Stalock will get the start in Thursday's game against the New Jersey Devils.
