Minnesota coach Mike Yeo has demoted Miakel Granlund to the second power-play unit.

He has not been stellar with the man advantage as of late and Yeo wanted to switch things up. Charlie Coyle will skate on the top unit in Granlund's place and set up a screen in front on the opponent'e net. Granlund will work on the second unit and Jason Zucker will lose his spot on the power play. Needless to say, Coyle sees his fantasy value increase, while Granlund's and Zucker's takes a hit.
