Eric Gelinas will be a healthy scratch in Monday's game against the Vancouver Canucks.

The 25-year-old has only suited up in 17 games this season and he's accumulated just one assist and a minus-2 rating this season. He isn't on the fantasy radar. Andreas Martinsen will join him in the press box.

Thus will be Gelinas' first game in a week and 14th of the year. He has a point with 10 PIMs and 12 hits, so we'd leave him on the wire.

Eric Gelinas will watch from the press box for the fourth time this season on Thursday against Tampa Bay.

That's no games played through four games of Colorado's season, which is a concerning sign. Gelinas has played just 162 NHL games spread over the last six seasons, scoring a tantalizing 54 points. But he'll have to start playing regularly again to be fantasy viable.
