Feb 20 - 12:30 PM

Nick Holden scored his first goal of the season on Saturday.

Holden is currently playing on the first defense pairing with Ryan McDonagh and if he can maintain that gig, he won't be a healthy scratch any more. It was his first point of the season in his 10th game and while he had a great season last year with 11 goals and 34 points to go with a plus-13 rating, he has been far from fantasy-worthy in 2017-18. Hopefully he will reward his loyal owners with some points in the next few games.
