The Colorado Avalanche will likely scratch Nate Guenin and Chris Wagner for Saturday's contest against the Flames.

With zero points in 24 games this season, it is safe to say that Guenin has no fantasy upside. Both Guenin and Wagner are depth skaters and have no business on any fantasy rosters.

Nate Guenin will be scratched from Saturday's match with Winnipeg.

Nate Guenin will be scratched against Flyers on Tuesday night.

Guenin has picked up no points, and no other stats of note through nine games this season. It would seem the 33-year-old defender has no fantasy value.

Nate Guenin was supported by his teammates after he committed a brutal turnover in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout win over Dallas.

He gave the puck away to Ales Hemsky, who set up Erik Cole to give the Stars a 2-0 lead at the time. The Avalanche rallied in the third and won the game in a shootout. "Not just [goalie Semyon Varlamov], all the players on the team (were supportive) of Nate," coach Patrick Roy said. "Nate works so hard, blocking shots and playing important minutes with Tyson Barrie ... tougher for him because he's a defensive defenseman and doesn't have the opportunity to go and get a big goal for us. But his teammates did it for him."
