Alex Goligoski picked up a goal with an assist and a plus-2 rating with one blocked shot and four hits in Monday's 6-1 win over the Blackhawks.

Goligoski started out a bit slow this season, and he had a six-game scoreless drought from Jan. 16-Feb. 3. However, he is starting to make up for lost time with two goals and six points with a plus-3 rating during his current four-game point streak. Despite the current run he is only worth a look in deeper fantasy pools since he still has a poor minus-22 rating overall.

Alex Goligoski lit the lamp for his fourth goal of the season while posting a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 3-1 victory in Colorado.

Goligoski has always been an above-average offensive defenseman, and he has started to pick up the pace lately. The rearguard has posted a goal with four points and a plus-3 rating over his past four outings. His fantasy appeal remains limited to deeper seasonal pools at this time, but he isn't a bad low-cost DFS option while running hot.
