Victor Rask has not had a goal nor an assist in his last 12 games.
That's a major slump for Rask who inked a six-year/$24 million extension this past summer. He has 13 goals and 32 points in 54 games thus far after getting 48 points last season. The 23-year-old has not been good on the draw as well as he won only three-of-11 Friday. "Whatever line he’s playing on he’s getting dominated on faceoffs a little bit," coach Bill Peters said. "When that happens it means you’re defending and that makes it tough. There are things he can do better, but I would recommend starting with the puck. That makes the game a little easier."
