He sat for the last four straight, playing 16:15 in the last game. Oft-scratched rearguard gets some much needed redemption opportunity here.

Eric Gelinas will tag in for Jon Merrill against Carolina on Saturday night.

Through 21 games thus far Gelinas has but three points, 10 blocks, 12 PIMs, and 33 hits. Which unfortunately does not amount to much of a fantasy option.

Through 143 career NHL games Gelinas has posted 14 goals and 51 points. However, through 21 games this season he has but one goal and three points. With just 12 PIMs and 33 hits to boot, he doesn't appear to have much fantasy value.

Eric Gelinas and Stefan Matteau will each be scratched for Tuesday's match with New Jersey.

Neither Gelinas nor Matteau have been productive for the Devils so far. Matteau has 13 PIMs and 25 hits in 12 games, while Gelinas has 12 PIMs and 24 hits in 17 games. We'd look elsewhere for depth support.

Eric Gelinas will pair with David Schlemko in Sunday's match with Florida.

Through 16 games he has but three points, 10 PIMs, and 21 hits, which shouldn't inspire one to include the young defender Gelinas on their squad.

Eric Gelinas and Brian O'Neill will be scratched from Friday's match with the Flyers.

Gelinas has not produced as hoped this season. Through 16 games he has but three points, 10 PIMs, and 21 hits. O'Neill meanwhile has not produced any better with two points and 28 hits in 21 games.

Eric Gelinas has been struggling with his game this season.

The offensive side of things are fine but the defenseman has not played well defensively and that caused him to be benched on Friday for the second period. Gelinas has been a healthy scratch on eight occasions including seven in a row from November 3-20. He has a goal and two helpers in 13 games this season.

Eric Gelinas and Stefan Matteau will be scratched against the Oilers on Friday.

Matteau has seen but seven games this season and only one in the month of November. Gelinas meanwhile hasn't played since Nov. 3rd, a span of seven games including tonight. It would seem neither player fits in to Coach Hynes' schematics.

Eric Gelinas will be scratched from Tuesday's tilt with Calgary.

Gelinas has but three points and not much else to show for his efforts in 10 games this season. He's averaged barely 13 minutes per night as well, suggesting not only is he in the dog house but he's not trusted.
