Luke Gazdic, Andrew Ference, and Mark Fayne with be scratched against the Penguins on Friday night.

While Ference and Fayne are no longer reliable fantasy contributors, let alone in real life, Gazdic has previously been a ready supplier of tough guy stats. However he has just 11 hits and 10 PIMs in nine games thus far, and averages just 5:32 of ice time. Look else where for depth support.

Luke Gazdic is searching for his first point of the season.

Gazdic has nine games under his belt so far in 2015-16. He's only averaging 5:32 minutes per contest though and we don't expect that to change significantly as the campaign goes on.

Luke Gazdic has lost about eight pounds, bringing him down to roughly 230.

Gazdic plans to be down to about 225 pounds by the time training camp starts as he wants to be a bit more of a leaner, quicker player. "It's made a difference," he continued. "I really feel it on the ice. I won't lose any strength because I do want to be quicker and I want to be more agile but I still have to be able to take on the toughest guys in the league." He had three points and 43 penalty minutes in 40 games with Edmonton last season.

He didn't suffer a concussion when he was hit hard by Winnipeg's Dustin Byfuglien on Monday. Gazdic required eight fresh stitches under his chin and he should be considered day-to-day. Look elsewhere for your penalty minutes and hits.
