Artem Anisimov took a maintenance day on Wednesday.

That's just an FYI as Anisimov is still expected to play on Friday. Most of the time, when a player takes a maintenance day it proves to be innocent enough, but if Anisimov isn't available to skate on Thursday either, then this will start to look more suspicious.

It was Anisimov's first game since Nov. 29 due to a torn tricep. He logged 15:30 minutes, including time in shorthanded and power-play situations. His fantasy value is limited in standard leagues as he typically averages around 0.5 points per game.

He is projected to play between Alexander Wennberg and Josh Anderson on the third line. Anisimov won't take part in faceoffs in his first game back, though. "We know what he can bring to this team," coach Todd Richards said. "He can bring some offensive skill, good penalty killer, lots of different things. Plays the game smart positionally, so he's a guy that's relied upon."
