Radek Faksa appears to be ready to take on a checking-line center role with the Dallas Stars.
Faksa made great strides in 2016-17 during his first full season in the NHL. He posted 12 goals and 33 points in 80 games, while recording 67 penalty minutes and 132 shots. His progress may be one of the reasons why Dallas could move Cody Eakin this off-season. May 31 - 12:16 PM

Faksa is up to five goals and 19 points in 44 contests this season. That represents an increase from his rookie campaign where he finished with 12 points in 45 games, but the 23-year-old isn't likely to become a significant fantasy contributor. He's worth taking a chance on though while he's hot if you don't mind short-term pickups.

Radek Faksa dished out three assists in Monday's 6-4 win against the Los Angeles Kings.

Radek Faksa scored in Friday's 3-2 OT win over Los Angeles.

Faksa gave the Stars a 2-1 advantage early in the third period. He's been on a bit of run lately, as he's picked up three goals in his last five games (he had just two in his first 30 contests). Even though he's had some success, he won't be worth an add in standard fantasy leagues this season. The 22-year-old enters the break with 13 points in 35 games.

The Dallas Stars’ Radek Faksa came to play against the Colorado Avalanche, but back-to-back goals in the second period were not enough to lift his team. Dallas lost the 4-2 preseason decision Wednesday night.

Faksa played 45 games with the Stars last year scoring five goals in the process with seven assists. His time in the AHL was more productive with 15 goals and 11 assists in 28 games. Faksa’s two goals Wednesday night came in a flurry, only seven seconds into the second period with another following at the 3:30 minute mark. Unfortunately, he did not get any help and his two goals were the only scored by the Stars.
