Dustin Byfuglien extended his point streak to six games Thursday night.

He had an assist on Mark Scheifele's goal in a 2-1 loss to the New York Rangers. Byfuglien has registered one goal and six helpers during his scoring spree. He has 19 points in 30 games now, which ties him for third among defensemen.
Dec 9 - 10:14 AM

Michael Hutchinson allowed two goals on 24 shots in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Rangers.

The game was tied 1-1 late, but Rangers forward Kevin Hayes scored the game-winner with just over one minute left in regulation. Hutchinson has a 3-5-2 record with a 2.95 goals-against-average and a .900 save percentage this season.
Dec 9 - 1:57 AM

Mark Scheifele scored a goal in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the New York Rangers.

Well, it didn't take Scheifele long to get settled in after missing the last three games with a lower-body injury. His second period goal tied the game 1-1 at the time. Unfortunately for the Jets, Kevin Hayes scored the game-winning goal with under two minutes left in regulation. Scheifele has 14 goals and 27 points in 27 games this season. He's a must-start in all fantasy leagues whenever the Jets are in action.
Dec 9 - 1:47 AM

Kyle Connor and Mark Stuart will both be scratched against the Rangers on Thursday.

The pair have become Winnipeg's usual scratches, along with Alexander Burmistrov. Until either can start playing again regularly we'd put a hard cap on their fantasy potential.
Dec 8 - 7:20 PM

Alexander Burmistrov won't play against the Rangers on Thursday.

The veteran forward has just two points in 23 games this season, so it's not like his fantasy value is taking a dip by not playing.
Dec 8 - 7:16 PM

Michael Hutchinson will face the Rangers on Thursday night

It's been a tough season for Hutchinson, but especially so against Eastern foes. He's gone 1-2-1 in five games with 15 goals against and an .874 save percentage this season. The Rangers are one of the game's best offenses, so we'd avoid this matchup if possible.
Dec 8 - 6:04 PM

Mark Scheifele will return from a lower-body injury on Thursday.

Scheifele was sidelined for three straight contests due to the ailment. Blake Wheeler had been serving as a center in his absence, but now Wheeler will shift back to the wing so that he can be on a line centered by Scheifele. Drew Stafford is the third player on that line.
Dec 8 - 2:09 PM

Nikolaj Ehlers hasn't scored a goal in 14 straight games.

"I'm still scoring points, we're winning games -- it's not a big deal for me," Ehlers said. "So I'm not too worried. But I wouldn't mind that one goes in soon." He has provided 11 assists during his goal drought. Ehlers has four goals in 29 games this campaign, but he has a team-leading 19 helpers to give him 23 points.
Dec 8 - 9:46 AM

Blake Wheeler is projected to play at center again Thursday night.

He has been playing between Mathieu Perreault and Drew Stafford while Mark Scheifele recovers from a lower-body ailment. The move hasn't disrupted the offensive groove that Wheeler has enjoyed lately. He is currently riding six-game point streak, with one goal and six assists over that span.
Dec 8 - 9:38 AM

Mark Scheifele (lower body) remains day-to-day.

He is questionable for Thursday's game against the Rangers. Scheifele has missed three games with a lower-body injury.
Dec 7 - 3:43 PM

Marko Dano picked up another helper during Tuesday's shootout loss to the Red Wings.

Dano now has five assists and eight points in 19 games this season. It would appear that the talented young forward is slowly but surely adapting to the highest level of hockey.
Dec 7 - 1:26 AM

Nikolaj Ehlers is now up to 19 assists on the season thanks to the helper he picked up during Tuesday's 4-3 shootout loss to Detroit.

Quite the breakout he's having. Ehlers has accounted for 23 points in 29 games this season to give him 61 points through the first 101 games of his career.
Dec 7 - 1:25 AM

Dustin Byfuglien posted perhaps his best game yet during his latest point stretch.

Big Buff posted a goal and an assist during Tuesday's 4-3 shootout loss to Detroit. He's now riding a five-game point streak and has points in seven of his last eight. He has two goals and eight points during that span, which gives him three goals and 18 points in 29 games this season.
Dec 7 - 1:20 AM

Another game, another goal by Patrik Laine during Tuesday's 4-3 loss to Detroit.

He also added an assist in the match. Laine now has goals in four of his past five games, with five goals and seven points during that span. That also includes three games with a pair of points. The rookie sensation has an astounding 17 goals and 25 points in 29 games with a 21.8% shooting clip.
Dec 7 - 1:18 AM

Andrew Copp netted his second goal in as many games during Tuesday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Red Wings.

Copp is now up to four goals and seven points in 19 games this year. Through the first 97 games of his career, the youngster has posted just 11 goals and 21 points.
