While Pominville did his part, Darcy Kuemper gave up four unanswered goals in the second and third periods. Pominville climbed to 10 points for the year on 46 shots and should be considered only when he fits the appropriate niche on one’s roster. Nov 30 - 1:21 AM

Jason Pominville scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Los Angeles Kings.

Pominville picked up an assist on Erik Haula's first period goal and he added one of his own with 12 seconds remaining in the frame. Despite tonight's multi-point effort, we don't recommend Pominville in standard fantasy leagues. Charlie Coyle, Mikko Koivu, Teemu Pulkkinen and Jared Spurgeon also found the back of the net for Minnesota.

Jason Pominville might help kill penalties this season.

The Buffalo Sabres used Pominville extensively when shorthanded, but ever since Pominville came to Minnesota, he's seen very little in the way of penalty killing ice time. That has changed during the 2016 training camp though. "I played pretty much my whole time in Buffalo [on the penalty kill], and when I came here [in 2013], it kind of slipped away from me," Pominville said. "Guys had different roles [under Mike Yeo]. If you were on PP, you didn’t really play much on the penalty kill, which was my case. But I’ve always liked to kill." That being said, Wild coach Bruce Boudreau might not use Pominville as much with the man advantage as former coach Yeo did, which would naturally be bad news from a fantasy perspective.

Jason Pominville was moved to the second line during Friday's practice.

Pominville skated with Mikko Koivu and Mikael Granlund. Pominville had a disappointing season in 2015-16, which means he'll be looking to rebound this year. The 33-year-old had 11 goals and 36 points in 75 games last season. He should be able to improve those numbers this year, but don't expect him to carry any fantasy value.

Jason Pominville scored in Sunday's 5-4 loss to Dallas in Game 6.
