Lauri Korpikoski doesn't have any fantasy value, but coach Lindy Ruff appreciates having him on the roster.
"Here's a guy that nine times out of 10 will go out and play the game the right way, get in the right place," Ruff said. "He's a bigger body (6-1, 193) that can kill penalties. We can use him in tougher defensive situations, where if somebody's been struggling, you can put him on the ice. He's an all-around player." He contributed his 10th point in 34 games Friday against Los Angeles, with an assist. Korpikoski hasn't scored a goal since he scored three in a row from Nov. 10 to Nov. 13.

Lauri Korpikoski and Patri Nemeth will be scratched against Chicago on Sunday.

The veteran winger has four goals and nine points in 29 games thus far. Unfortunately that's not quite enough to justify a spot on your roster.

Lauri Korpikoski scored his fourth goal of the season during Sunday's 5-4 overtime loss to Vancouver.

He now has goals in three consecutive games, giving him six points overall in 16 games. That's a nice rate considering he's posted between 21-25 points in each of the last three seasons with the Oilers and Coyotes.

Lauri Korpikoski has inked a one-year, $1 million contract with the Dallas Stars.

Korpikoski took part in the Calgary Flames' training camp on a tryout basis. Dallas is entering the 2016-17 campaign with some injury woes, so this move will provide their bottom-six with a much needed boost in light of that. Korpikoski had 10 goals and 22 points in 71 games with Edmonton in 2015-16.

Calgary Flames coach Glen Gulutzan said that Lauri Korpikoski will "surface right away", suggesting he's nearing an agreement with another team.

Should that be the case, the new team will be signing a reliable veteran winger. Korpikoski has posted at least 21 points the last three seasons with at least 100 hits per campaign as well.

The Calgary Flames have released Lauri Korpikoski from his PTO.

The eight-year veteran is only just 30-years-old, so it's not as though Korpikoski is an old man by any means. However he's also a grinding winger who only posits about 20 points a season and given the way rosters are being constructed these days, it's not terribly surprising to see him get axed.

Lauri Korpikoski has done well so far in the Calgary Flames' training camp.

Korpikoski is competing for a spot after agreeing to a professional tryout offer. He's already been used in three preseason games and seems to have helped his cause. "The last game that Korpi played, I thought, was his best game," Flames coach Glen Gulutzan said in reference to Sunday's contest. "The tenaciousness, the forecheck, and the speed. That’s what comes out of him. Today’s NHL game has gotten real fast. Korpi is still a guy that can play at that level. He’s strong on the puck, has a veteran presence, doesn’t make many mistakes, and still has that speed to play a pace game." Korpikoski is one of the 31 remaining players on the Flames' roster.

The 29-year-old has six goals and 12 points in 38 games this season. Anton Lander and Brad Hunt will also watch the game from the press box, but they will both be serving as healthy scratches. You can continue to ignore these three players in all fantasy formats.
