Robert Bortuzzo posted a goal with a plus-2 rating and a blocked shot over 18:16 of ice time in Monday's 4-2 win in Anaheim.

Bortuzzo is starting to heat up, picking up goals in back-to-back games with a plus-4 rating. After spending a few weeks on injured reserve due to a knee ailment from mid-February to early March, he looks to be better than ever. He entered Saturday's game with just one goal over his first 57 contests. Despite the hot streak he warrants fantasy consideration only in the deepest of pools.

Bortuzzo was placed on injured reserve earlier this week, but his injury isn't believed to be too serious. Still, it doesn't sound like he'll play this weekend. "I don’t see him playing Sunday (in Nashville), and really all the (IR designation) meant was that he was going to be out for today’s game. So we’ll keep playing it by ear," head coach Mike Yeo said. Chris Butler will continue to play until Bortuzzo is ready to return from injury.
