Boyd Gordon has been sidelined with lower body injury suffered in Thursday's tilt with Chicago.

Gordon has played 675 NHL games since entering the league in his age-20 season in 2003-04, and he has but 53 career goals. Suffice it to say he's no fantasy maven. Hopefully he heals up quick, though.

Klas Dahlbeck will continue to watch from the stands as his Coyotes take on the Ducks on Friday night.

In 44 games this season Dahlbeck has accumulated five points, 20 PIMs, 47 blocks, and 124 hits. Mighty impressive, and quite helpful for any super deep pool.

Steve Downie will indeed play Friday against the Ducks.

Downie hasn't played since Jan. 16th, and has seen just five games total since Dec. 17th. The veteran winger has posted 29 hits and 53 PIMs in just 25 games of work this season.

Nicklas Grossmann and Boyd Gordon will be scratched from Friday's tilt with Anaheim.

While Gordon is a classic defensive centerman who doesn't impact the stat sheet much, Grossmann has had a nice season as a defensive defeseman who racks up tough guy numbers. Through 41 games this season he has 55 blocks and 75 hits.

The Battle of Pennsylvania will add a new chapter to their illustrious history in 2017, it's just a matter of format.

Scott Burnside notes that while "pans for next year’s Winter Classic remain fluid," Pittsburgh versus Philadelphia in an outdoor venue is a "virtual lock." As it stands now, likely venues are for a match at Heniz Field which is home of the NFL's Pittsburgh Steelers. Problem is that if the NHL wants this game as their Winter Classic, the Steelers aren't inclined to budge on forfeiting home field on the last day of the regular season. They're also reticent to potentially ruin their field for a Wild Card playoff game the following week. There's also talk of playing the game at Penn State University, but "the financial demands" appear to rich. Whether they play as the Winter Classic match or as part of the Stadium Series, these two bitter rivals appear set to create history for themselves.

Feb 5 - 7:54 PM

Harry Zolnierczyk and Korbinian Holzer will both be scratched once against in Friday's match with Arizona.

Unfortunately there simply is no fantasy value to speak of here. As Zolnierczyk has yet to skate in the NHL this season, and Holzer has played in 18 games this season.
Feb 5 - 7:51 PM

Connor Hellebuyck will face Carolina on Friday night.

Hellebuyck has won just one of his past five games, but still comes in sporting excellent numbers during his rookie campaign. He's 12-10-1 with a .924 save percentage and a 2.19 GAA. The 22-year-old is also rocking a .948 even strength save percentage. That's unsustainable, but ride the wave anyway.
Feb 5 - 7:41 PM

Feb 5 - 7:29 PM

Feb 5 - 7:25 PM

Jared Boll and Justin Falk will be scratched Friday night against Calgary.

Unfortunately there isn't a lick of fantasy value between either player. Boll has seen just 20 games this season and has 30 PIMs and 37 hits to his credit. Neither appear to have much of a rotation with Coach John Tortorella.
Feb 5 - 7:21 PM

TJ Brodie will indeed play Friday night against Columbus.

Brodie suffered a lower body injury on Wednesday when he blocked a Justin Faulk shot, leaving with 5:36 to go in the second period.
