Jason Demers posted an assist with a plsu-2 rating and a pair of hits in 22:38 of ice time in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss against San Jose.

Demers was fired up to face his former squad, as the rearguard had managed just two assists with a minus-11 rating over his past 16 contests. He'll obviously need to do quite a bit more before getting back into the good graces of fantasy owners.

Nick Cousins picked up an assist with a plus-2 rating and a hit in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss against the Sharks.

Cousins has managed just two goals and an assist over his past 23 games. Despite Tuesday's solid showing he is someone who should remain on the waiver wire in most fantasy pools.

Shane Prince left Tuesday's game against the New Jersey Devils due to an upper-body injury and he was unable to return.

Prince delivered a hit and might have actually injured himself on the play. He was scoreless with a minus-1 rating, a blocked shot and the hit, which was his last order of business on the evening. Consider him day to day for now.

Jordan Martinook struck for a goal and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss against the Sharks.

Martinook has re-discovered his scoring touch lately, posting three goals with five points over his past seven games while turning in a plus-2 rating. He won't be confused with former franchise greats Shane Doan or Keith Tkachuk anytime soon, but he isn't a bad scoop in deeper pools if you need a quick infusion of offense if you have the roster flexibility.
Jan 17 - 12:03 AM

Brad Richardson scored his third goal of the season while chipping in with an assist and plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss against the Sharks.

Arizona came up short in this one, but it was through no fault of Richardson. He had a hand in each of the team's goals. After being held without a goal in 18 straight outings from Nov. 18-Jan. 6, Richardson has two goals and an assists over his past three outings. He'll need to do keep scoring if he is to be trusted again outside of the deepest of fantasy pools.
Jan 16 - 11:59 PM

Antti Raanta allowed two goals on 22 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss against the visiting Sharks.

Raanta has allowed three or fewer goals in seven of his past nine appearances, but he has just two victories to show for his efforts due to a lack of offensive support. He hasn't had much luck in the shootout this season, either, dropping each of his past three shootouts. He is only worth using in the deepest of fantasy pools at this point.
Jan 16 - 11:56 PM

Joe Thornton struck for a power-play goal on his only shot of Tuesday's game in Arizona and he finished with a plus-1 rating.

Thornton has managed goals in consecutive games for the first time this season. It's his first time with goals in two or more games since he erupted for three goals in a three-game span from Feb. 4-9, 2016. Thornton is currently on pace for 20 goals, which would be his highest total since he lit the lamp 21 times during the 2010-11 season.
Jan 16 - 11:54 PM

Mikkel Boedker picked up a goal on two shots over 11:52 of ice time in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout victory at Arizona against his former team.

Boedker snapped a 12-game goal scoring drought on Monday night, and now he has goals in back-to-back outings for the first time since Jan. 7-10, 2017 when he had four goals in a two-game span. He is working on a three-game point streak, but is still only worth using in the deepest of fantasy pools at this point. Boedker isn't a bad low-end DFS option Thursday at Nashville while running hot.
Jan 16 - 11:50 PM

Aaron Dell allowed two goals on 32 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout victory at Arizona.

Dell bounced back nicely after being trounced for six goals on 43 shots at Ottawa last time out on Jan. 5. He has allowed three or fewer goals in 12 of his past 14 appearances. While he isn't a fantasy option to rely upon regularly, he isn't a bad low-end No. 2 option in leagues allow daily moves. Dell is also a sharp option in DFS play when the matchup is favorable such as it was on Tuesday.

Corey Crawford (vertigo) could reportedly miss the rest of the season.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Crawford is dealing with vertigo-like symptoms for the second time in his career. It's an unfortunate turn of events for a Chicago team that has struggled with consistency this year. Crawford has arguably been the Blackhawks' best player this season.
Jan 16 - 11:32 PM

Ryan Johansen suffered what's believed to be an upper-body injury in Tuesday's 1-0 win over the Vegas Golden Knights.

Johansen got his bell rung after taking a hit from Golden Knights forward William Carrier. The Predators forward was slow to get up, but he eventually skated off to his team's dressing room late in the second period and he never returned. The Predators didn't provide an update on his status after the game. This could be another big blow for a team that's already without Filip Forsberg and Viktor Arvidsson. Johansen has five goals and 21 assists in 40 games this season.
Jan 16 - 11:28 PM

Marc-Andre Fleury allowed one goal on 27 shots in Tuesday's 1-0 loss to the Nashville Predators.

It's a tough break for Fleury who was very good in this game. The Golden Knights goaltender blanked the Predators for 48 minutes, but he eventually allowed Kevin Fiala to score the only goal of the game in the third period. Fleury now owns a 9-3-2 record with a 1.77 goals-against-average and a .943 save percentage this season.
Jan 16 - 11:24 PM

Juuse Saros turned aside all 43 shots he faced in Tuesday's 1-0 win over the Vegas Golden Knights.

The Predators got a strong performance from their number two goalie in this one. Kevin Fiala gave Nashville a 1-0 lead eight minutes into the third period. That's all the offense Saros needed to get his team the victory. The Predators netminder now has a 5-3-3 record with a 2.22 goals-against-average and a .930 save percentage this season. His fantasy outlook is a little bleak because Pekka Rinne will continue to get the majority of the starts for Nashville. Should Rinne suffer an injury, Saros would become a must-add in all fantasy formats.
Jan 16 - 11:21 PM

Jonathan Marchessault fired 10 shots on goal in Tuesday's 1-0 loss to the Nashville Predators.

The Golden Knights managed to take 43 shots on Nashville's Juuse Saros, but none of those ended up in the back of the net. This was just the second time in his last 12 games that Marchessault didn't manage to collect at least one point in a game. He has 16 goals and an impressive 41 points in 40 games this season.
Jan 16 - 11:18 PM

Kevin Fiala scored the only goal in Nashville's 1-0 win over the Vegas Golden Knights.

Fiala broke the scoreless draw at the 8:00 mark of the third frame. The Predators forward then rang a shot right off the post just a few minutes later. Fiala finished the game with a plus-1 rating and three shots on goal in 16:39 of ice time. The 21-year-old now has 11 goals and 27 points in 42 games this season. P.K. Subban and Colton Sissons registered the assists on Nashville's only goal.
