Tomas Plekanec tallied a goal and an assist to lead the Canadiens to a 2-0 win against the Sharks on Saturday night.
Plekanec has rewarded those who took a chance on him later in drafts. He had become more of a 20-goal, 45-point guy in recent seasons. Now, though he has 22 goals and 52 points, numbers that have kept him in the starting lineups in fantasy leagues throughout the season. Brendan Gallagher got the other goal, via the empty net.

Plekanec got the Canadiens on the scoreboard at 11:10 of the second period, cutting the Lightning's lead to 3-1. The goal came on a power play and was Plekanec's 21st tally of the season. He recorded his 27th assist of the season on a third-period goal by P.A. Parenteau (seventh).

Tomas Plekanec scored a goal in Montreal's 3-1 win over the New York Islanders on Saturday.

Plekanec finished off a pretty passing play between P.A. Parenteau, Alex Galchenyuk and himself at the 58 second mark of the second period. It was his first goal in seven games (February 28th). The 32-year-old has 20 goals and 46 points in 69 games this season. It's the seventh time in his career that Plekanec hits the 20-goal mark.

Tomas Plekanec produced a goal and an assist in Monday's 2-0 win over Detroit.

He scored the game-winning goal, his 17th of the year, with just 2:30 remaining in regulation. Plekanec also picked up his 23rd helper of 2014-15 on an empty-net goal by Max Pacioretty. He has a four-game point streak going, with two goals and three assists during that time.

Tomas Plekanec potted his 16th goal in Tuesday's 2-1 overtime win over Philadelphia.

He tied the game at the 12:38 mark of the third period. Linemates Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher assisted on the marker. Plekanec has three goals in his last three matches.

Tomas Plekanec scored twice for the Canadiens in their 6-2 win over the Devils on Saturday night.

The Canadiens flat-out dominated this game from the start. Plekanec’s goals snapped a six-game skid in which he recorded only one assist. Despite the great night, he still is a bottom-tier starting forward in most leagues, with 15 goals and 35 points. Dale Weise also picked up two goals on three shots. Andrei Markov (goal, assist) and Lars Eller notched the other markers. David Desharnais and P.K. Subban registered three assists, while Max Pacioretty got two.

Tomas Plekanec registered an assist in Montreal's 1-0 overtime win over Washington on Saturday.

Plekanec entered the game on a three-game pointless streak, but the Canadiens have only scored two goals in their last two games (they won both games). The 32-year-old has been playing some good two-way hockey for the Habs, and he will have an opportunity to put up points because he's playing on the top line with sniper Max Pacioretty. Plekanec has 13 goals and 33 points in 48 games.
Feb 1 - 8:55 AM

Tomas Plekanec powered the Canadiens to a 6-4 win over the Islanders with four points Saturday night.

The 32-year-old scored twice and assisted two times. He has 13 goals and 32 points this season, one in which he’s reverted back to being an asset offensively in fantasy leagues. Plekanec is a solid depth forward now, but don’t expect him to carry you like he did tonight. Other goal scorers included: David Desharnais (goal, assist), Dale Weise, Alex Galchenyuk and P.K. Subban. Andrei Markov had three assists.

Tomas Plekanec is projected to play between Max Pacioretty and Brendan Gallagher on Wednesday night.

The Canadiens have three goals in their past two games and both of them were losses, so coach Michel Therrien has altered his lines. Alex Galchenyuk was bumped off the top line and placed between Pierre-Alexandre Parenteau and Brandon Prust.
Jan 14 - 11:21 AM

Tomas Plekanec scored a goal in Montreal's 4-1 win over Ottawa on Saturday night.

Plekanec's power play goal gave the Habs a 3-1 lead in the third period. The 32-year-old is having another fine season for the Canadiens. Not only is he solid defensively, but he continues to contribute on the scoresheet. Plekanec has 10 goals and 23 points in 34 games this season.

Tomas Plekanec netted the game-winning goal in Tuesday's 3-2 victory over Vancouver.

His ninth marker of the season snapped a seven-game goalless drought. On the brighter side, Plekanec has a three-game point streak now and he's picked up four points in his past five outings.

Tomas Plekanec netted his sixth goal of the season in Tuesday's 3-0 win over Winnipeg.

He deposited his second shorthanded marker of the year into an empty net to snap a seven-game goalless drought. Plekanec enjoyed a great start, but points have been hard to come by since late October.

Tomas Plekanec earned the NHL's first star of the week.

Plekanec kicked off the season with a three-game goal streak. He has four goals and five points over that span. He was limited to just 43 points last season, but he certainly has the ability to do better in 2014-15.
Mon, Oct 13, 2014 12:35:00 PM

Tomas Plekanec has scored a goal in each of his first three games and he co-leads the NHL with four goals early into the 2014-15 season.

The last time Plekanec had a three-game goal streak was Oct. 25-29, 2010. The 31-year-old center has been great out of the gate, but believing this will be a 70-point season is hasty at this point. Still, you should ride him while he's hot.

With Manny Malhotra healthy and contributing, Montreal coach Michel Therrien has been able to relieve Tomas Plekanec from some of his defensive duties.

What does this mean for Plekanec's fantasy value you may be asking? Quite a bit. Plekanec can be used more for offensive-zone faceoffs and does not have to be the first center option on the penalty kill. The result--the veteran center has scored three goals in the Habs' two games in a more offensive role. If Therrien continues to be comfortable with Malhotra in his current role then Plekanec could have a very good offensive season.
