Slater Koekkoek could see a spike in playing time because of the injury to Victor Hedman.

Hedman is expected to be out anywhere between three and six weeks, so someone will have to fill that void. Koekkoek is nowhere close to being the player Hedman is, but he can help replace him during his absence. "I think Slater needs ice time," GM Steve Yzerman said. "We’ve been pretty pleased with how he’s played this year. Last year, at the start of the season, we were hoping he or (Nikita Nesterov) would be able to step in that top six. Neither were quite ready to go. (Nesterov was traded early last season). But Slater is a better player than he was a year ago. His experience in (AHL) Syracuse and (its) long playoff run (the Crunch made the league final), logging big-time minutes helped him. I’m looking forward to — depending on what (Cooper) does with the lineup — see Slater play more minutes and see how he does." Koekkoek has four goals and three assists in 22 games this season. Even with an increase in playing time, he still won't carry any fantasy value.
