Viktor Arvidsson scored a goal to help the Predators win over the Devils Thursday night.

Viktor Arvidsson tallied two goals in Saturday evening's win over the Islanders.

Fantasy Impact: Arvidsson had a great game on Saturday evening, scoring two goals. One of the goals came within the first five minutes of the game and showed off his talent. Arvidsson has potential to be a solid fantasy player, but at this point in the season, fantasy owners should wait to pick him up. If there are owners that have him on their team, they should start him for his upside.

Fantasy Impact: Although he has averaged 24 shifts over three games against the Blues, Arvidsson has failed to earn an assist or goal with seven cumulative shots-on-goal and just shy of 20 minutes of time-on-ice in each contest. The 24-year-old Swedish left wing was a late bloomer in February of the regular season, starting to show his natural talent on the ice while in the Calle Jarnkrok line. He was much more effective in the first round against the Blackhawks, when the Predators pulled off a four game sweep. All things considered, Nashville still holds a 2-1 game lead over the Blues in the second round heading into game-four this evening. Should Arvidsson heat up, the odds of Nashville advancing to the Western Conference Finals will undoubtedly rise.

 

Viktor Arvidsson scored a game-winning-goal and earned two penalty minutes during Thursday's 1-0 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks.

Fantasy Impact: Arvidsson caught Chicago goalie Corey Crawford sleeping when he crashed the net and tapped in a nice feed from Filip Forsberg. The Forsberg, Johansen, and Arvidsson line is going to be essential if the Predators expect to end up victorious in this first playoff tangle with a more experienced and seasoned Chicago team.

Fantasy Impact: Arvidsson received his first "Star of the Week" honors as he was selected by the NHL Monday, February 13th. Arvidsson had his first NHL hat trick during Saturday's 7-4 loss to the Florida Panthers, and he had another three point performance during a 4-2 win over Vancouver February seventh. Arvidsson is currently second in points for the Predators with 39 points through 54 games this season. He had just 16 points through his first 62 NHL contests. The 23-year-old native of Sweden is becoming a force in the NHL this season.

Arvidsson's efforts have seen him promoted to the first line and he has been outstanding over his past five games with seven combined points. He now has 39 points through 59 games-played this season.

Viktor Arvidsson scored three goals, one shorthanded, during Saturday's 7-4 loss to the Florida Panthers.

Fantasy Impact: Arvidsson, who was recently promoted to the first line, has been continuing to improve during the start of the second half of the season. He put together a hat trick Saturday night and now has eight points in his last five games, three of those games being multi-point efforts. Arvidsson currently has 38 points through 53 games this season and is worth consideration on the waiver-wire.

Arvidsson has a great natural shot and has been slowly climbing lines in Nashville. He now has 14 goals to place him at 34 points through 51 games this season.

Viktor Arvidsson scored a power play goal during Tuesday night's 5-4 overtime loss to the Buffalo Sabres.

Fantasy Impact: Arvidsson may have scored during a power play advantage, but it was certainly not without an incredible effort. As he made his first shot from nearly point blank, he was denied by Sabres' goalie Robin Lehner. Arvidsson made a beautiful second effort, poking the puck into the net as it was rebounded. It was Arvidsson's 12th goal on the season and, along with Forsberg, he has started to heat up as of late. Arvidsson has five points over his last five games and 30 points through 46 games this season. He is certainly worth consideration if available on the waiver wire.

Arvidsson scored the game-winning in overtime to help Nashville extend the series to a Game 7.

Fantasy Impact: He just scored his first NHL goal this season and now he is a hero (of the moment) for Nashville. I can't recommend him for the rest of the postseason but he deserved a note and write-up for this goal.

Arvidsson's goal at 17:03 of the first period proved to be the game-winning goal as the Predators beat Carolina 2-1 on opening night. In the win, he played 11 minutes with a goal, and had two shots on the night.

Fantasy Impact: The rookie will likely be relegated to third line duties, paired with Cody Hodgson and Calle Jarnkrok. He's talented but has only played in seven NHL games. Keep him on a scout list for now and see how he handles the grind of a long NHL season.
