Rickard Rakell picked up a goal, an assist and a plus-1 rating with two hits in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss against Los Angeles.

His awful plus/minus rating has been a bit of a deterrent for fantasy owners, but his usefulness as a center and winger make him a tremendous asset from an eligibility perspective.
