Kyle Brodziak had a big fantasy night as a fourth liner Thursday.
The center, who had a terrible 2013 season with only eight goals and 12 points in 48 games, had an assist, three hits, three shots on goal and lost only two of nine faceoffs. "I was really happy to see him, the way he was skating, he looked really confident out there, winning his battles," coach Mike Yeo said. "He has to be physical, and he had a couple real good hits and that has to be part of his game. We can only say it so many times, 'Let's hit the reset button and everything,' but we're kidding ourselves if we think it's not in the back of our minds. For him to get off to a good start, I think that really allows him to hit that refresh button and focus on this year now." Don't pick him up yet in fantasy pools as he is still a fourth line player but he could be considered if he moves up the depth chart.
