Tomas Plekanec posted one goal and one assist in Montreal's 8-3 win against Ottawa on Monday night.

Plekanec didn't have a point in his previous seven outings and he had just one goal through 11 games going into Monday night's tilt. The veteran center only produced 10 goals and 28 points in 78 games last season. Plekanec should not be on your fantasy radar.

Tomas Plekanec scored a goal in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

It didn't take Plekanec very long to find the back of the net, as he beat Corey Crawford just 1:15 into the game. The Blackhawks goalie will likely want that one back because the innocent looking shot seemed to catch him off guard. The goal was Plekanec's first point of the 2017-18 season. He isn't worth owning in any fantasy leagues.
Oct 10 - 11:24 PM

The trio of Tomas Plekanec, Artturi Lehkonen and Charles Hudon had 11 of Montreal's 34 shots in Sunday's 2-0 loss to the Rangers.

The Canadiens have three goals in the first three games of the regular season. "We created a lot of chances through these three games, we just have to find a way to bury them," Plekanec said. "We're skating well, we're putting a lot of pressure on the defense, it's just a matter of scoring." Plekanec had four shots Sunday and Lehkonen had six. The combination hasn't recorded a point yet this season, but that should change soon if they continue to generate quality chances.
Oct 9 - 10:32 AM

Tomas Plekanec's unimpressive 2016-17 campaign has left him exposed for the expansion draft next week.

A 70-point player in 2010 and a 60-point man just two years ago, the 34-year-old's production dropped sharply to 10 goals and 28 points in 78 games last season. Vegas GM George McPhee will assess whether it was just a down year, or Plekanec's decline is here to stay.

Tomas Plekanec has generated one goal and two assists in three playoff games against New York.

"From the time he came to North America (from the Czech Republic), he was always more of a defensive-type player and he always took a lot of pride in that," coach Claude Julien said of Plekanec. "But he also had good offensive skills and we encouraged him to use those as much as he could and then he started doing that and was being successful." He has also been placed in situations to get more involved offensively between Brendan Gallagher and Paul Byron.

Plekanec, Byron and Brendan Gallagher were the most consistent line throughout the night. The series is tied at one heading back to New York. Game 3 will be played at Madison Square Garden on Sunday night.
