Mathieu Perreault scored a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Minnesota Wild.

Unfortunately for Perreault, he was also forced from the game because of an injury. He suffered the injury after being hit by Kurtis Gabriel. Perreault scored a power play goal early in the second period and he added an assist on Kyle Connor's goal less than 12 minutes later. The team didn't provide an update on Perreault's status after the game. We'll consider him day-to-day for now.

Sidney Crosby was named the MVP of the 2016 World Cup of Hockey.

It's been a pretty good year for Crosby, as he won the Stanley Cup with Pittsburgh and was named the Conn Smythe trophy winner (playoff MVP) during that run. The Penguins captain finishes the tournament with three goals and 10 points in six World Cup games. The players on Canada's top line (Crosby, Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron) scored the opening goal in five of their team's six games.

Jaroslav Halak allowed two goals on 34 shots in Team Europe's 2-1 loss to Team Canada on Thursday.

Halak and Team Europe put up a great fight, but they failed to force a winner take all Game 3 on Saturday night. Europe got a goal from Zdeno Chara in the first period and led until Patrice Bergeron tied it with less than three minutes remaining in regulation. Bruins forward Brad Marchand scored the game-winning goal (shorthanded) with 43 seconds remaining.

Carey Price turned aside 32 of 33 shots in Thursday's 2-1 win over Team Europe.

The win allowed Canada to clinch the World Cup. Team Canada was outplayed throughout the evening and they gave up a lot of odd man rushes, but Price bailed them out on numerous occasions. Price has now won 16 consecutive games as Team Canada's starting goaltender. The Canadiens goalie showed that the knee injury he suffered last season is behind him. He looks ready to go for the 2016-17 season. He should be one of the top two goaltenders taken in standard fantasy leagues.

Zdeno Chara scored in Thursday's 2-1 loss to Team Canada.

Team Europe played a solid game and were the better team tonight, but they fell just short. Europe led 1-0 late in the third period before Canada scored two goals (Bergeron and Marchand) in the final three minutes of regulation. It's a disappointing end for Team Europe, but no one expected them to make it to the final before the tournament began.

Brad Marchand's game-winning goal clinched the World Cup of Hockey for Team Canada, as they defeated Team Europe 2-1 on Thursday.

Team Canada looked sluggish this evening and found themselves down 1-0 until Patrice Bergeron scored a power play goal with under three minutes remaining in regulation. Marchand followed that up by scoring a shorthanded goal with 43 seconds left in the third period. Marchand has a fantastic tournament for Canada. The 28-year-old scored two goals in the semifinal against Russia, a goal and an assist in Game 1 of the final and the game-winning goal in tonight's game.

Matt Dumba scored in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Winnipeg Jets.

Dumba opened the scoring 52 seconds into the second period. The goal was scored on the power play and was assisted by Mike Reilly and Erik Haula. Dumba scored 10 goals and 26 points in 81 games last season.
Sep 29 - 10:41 PM

Zach Redmond scored his second goal of the preseason in Thursday's 4-3 OT loss to the Senators.

Redmond isn't known for his offensive production, but he's shown an ability to score this preseason. Although he won't produce much this season, the preseason goals should help him stick in the NHL this season. Brendan Gallagher and Michael McCarron also scored for the Canadiens.
Sep 29 - 10:29 PM

Mike Hoffman scored a pair of goals in Thursday's 4-3 OT win over the Montreal Canadiens.

Hoffman's second period goal gave the Senators a 3-2 lead and he scored the game-winner 19 seconds into overtime. The 26-year-old scored 29 goals and 59 points in 78 games last season. He's scored 56 goals in his first two full NHL seasons. Matt Puempel and Bobby Ryan also scored for Ottawa on Thursday.
Sep 29 - 10:27 PM

Matt Moulson scored the shootout winner in Buffalo's 1-0 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Moulson will look to rebound after a terrible 2015-16 season that saw him score just eight goals and 21 points in 81 games. Don't count on Moulson turning his career around. His days as a relevant fantasy player are pretty much over. He's combined to score just 21 goals over the last two years.
Sep 29 - 10:22 PM

James Reimer stopped 18 of 19 shots in Thursday's 2-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Reimer played two periods, while Reto Berra was between the pipes for one period. It's a solid outing from Florida's number 2 goaltender. Reimer's fantasy upside is limited because of the presence of Roberto Luongo. His fantasy value would spike if Luongo would be forced to miss time.
Sep 29 - 10:18 PM

Brayden Point scored in Thursday's 2-0 preseason win over the Florida Panthers.

Point, who's one of Tampa Bay's top prospects, has now scored in back-to-back exhibition games. The Lightning are loaded with depth up front, but it'll be interesting to see if Point can force his way onto the roster. The 20-year-old scored an incredible 88 points in 48 games with WHL Moose Jaw.
Sep 29 - 10:14 PM

Miles Wood found the back of the net in Thursday's 3-1 preseason loss to the Rangers.

Wood scored an unassisted goal at 13:00 mark of the second period to cut the Rangers' lead to 2-1. The 21-year-old will enter his first full pro season this year. Wood scored 10 goals and 35 points in 37 games at Boston College last season. He'll likely open the season in the minors.
Sep 29 - 10:08 PM

Brandon Pirri scored two goals and an assist in Thursday's 3-1 win over the New Jersey Devils.

Pirri assisted on John Gilmour's power play goal early in the first period before adding one of his own just over six minutes later. He also scored a power play goal in the third period to give New York a 3-1 lead. The Rangers signed Pirri to an affordable one-year, $1.1 million contract and he'll be used as a versatile winger/center. His fantasy upside will be limited at best.
Sep 29 - 10:01 PM

Anthony Bitetto scored in Thursday's 3-2 OT loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Bitetto has been productive through two preseason games, as he also registered a pair of assists on Tuesday. The 26-year-old played in just 28 games last year and unless an injury occurs, he may not play much more in 2016-17. Yannick Weber, who Bitetto will likely battle for playing time, also scored for the Predators in this one.
