Mark Giordano leads the National Hockey League in points on the road this season with 18.

The defenseman has 30 points in 31 games this season including eight goals, to lead all blueliners but he certainly cannot be accused of doing it all at home as the 31-year-old has been tops on the road. He is a must start in all formats of fantasy hockey.

Mark Giordano is going to give wearing a visor another shot.

Giordano got clipped by a player's stick during Saturday's game and needed several stitches close to his left eyelid. Coming that close to getting an eye injury has encouraged him to reconsider his policy when it comes to visors. "I'd definitely prefer not using one, but I'll try it again and see how it goes this time," Giordano said. "I'll try it again because it was pretty close to being a bad eye injury, and I don’t want to, obviously, put myself at risk if I don't have to. So I'll try to get used to it over the next few weeks. Hopefully, this time, I can keep it on for good."

Mark Giordano has been getting more successful when it comes to finding the net with his shots.

Giordano reached the net with 39.2% of his shot attempts in the shortened 2013 campaign, but that went up to 44.7% in 2013-14 and it stands at 47.9% in 2014-15. That's part of the reason why he's excelled this season with six goals and 21 points in 19 games. "In past years, where I'd come down the wing and try and score from the outside and make a perfect shot . . . trying to hit it perfectly," Giordano said. "I realize now that there's a lower probability that you're going to score, so I try and put it off the goalie's pads instead or try and put it somewhere around the net to create a rebound or something."

Mark Giordano avoided a serious injury on Saturday when he slammed into the boards against the Panthers.

Giordano, who had a goal and two assists in the game to give his 18 points in 16 games, was thought to be injured but he eventually made it back to the bench and then the ice in the win over Florida. "He lost his wind, and I lost mine, too," said Flames head coach Bob Hartley. "He hit the boards hard, and, to be honest with you, I thought he was gone. I thought that his game was over. And suddenly, two minutes later, I saw him back on the ice. I didn't see him come back from the tunnel, and (associate coach Jacques Cloutier) had him back on the ice, so I asked the trainers, and they said, ‘No, he’s fine.’

Giordano scored a goal and two assists in the Flames' 6-4 comeback win against the Florida Panthers on Saturday. The 31-year-old blueliner now has 18 points in 16 games. As great as he was last season, he might just win the Norris at this pace.

Mark Giordano is riding a three-game multi-point streak.

That's a career best for Giordano. He's also recorded at least one point in each of his last five contests. "Just one of those things, man," Giordano said. "A few games will go by, you won't get any (points). And then for a few games, you get some lucky ones, you get a couple of lucky assists or whatever, and then it looks like you're doing things differently, but you're really not." This isn't just an isolated incident when it comes to Giordano though. He had 47 points last season and might do even better in 2014-15 given that he already has 15 points in 15 games.
