Latest Player Updates

Colton Parayko recorded an assist versus Tampa Bay Tuesday. The Blue would win 3-1.

Fantasy Impact: Parayko was a star in the playoffs last season to increase people's awareness of him. In his first four seasons, he has reached at least 28 points each season which is respectable for a defenseman in fantasy.

Ryan O'Reilly recorded an assist Tuesday versus Tampa Bay. His assist came on the first Blues goal.

Fantasy Impact: O'Reilly is coming off a career-high 77 points last season which is worth a roster spot in the vast majority of leagues. He has seven seasons with at least 55 points.

Jordan Binnington saved 17 of the 18 shots he faced versus the Lightning Tuesday. St Louis would win 3-1.

Fantasy Impact: Binnington was a great fantasy asset once he took over last season and should be an exciting option. However, while it appears to be Binnington's job so far this season, the Blues still have Jake Allen under contract for the same two seasons.

Patrick Kane assisted both Blackhawks goals during their 4-2 home loss to the Carolina Hurricanes.

Fantasy Impact: Kane extends his streak to 10 straight games with a point. He now has 26 total points on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Mantha has been dominant to start the season. he currently has 12 goals and 10 assists thru 23 games. He has been one of the best candidates for fantasy MVP thru a quarter of the season.

By Douglas Roth

Valtteri Filppula scored a shorthanded goal in the Red Wings 4-3 loss to the Senators on Tuesday. He had one goal, one assist, two PIM and one SOG in 14:13 of ice-time.

Fantasy Impact: Filppula may not be a fantasy asset but he is an extremely useful player on just about any team. He can play in any situation which is a major plus. Look for him to be dealt at the deadline.

Robby Fabbri had a goal in the Red Wings 4-3 loss to the Senators on Tuesday. He was a minus one with one goal on four SOG in 16:00 of ice-time

Fantasy Impact: Fabbri could barely scratch the lineup with the Blues. Since he has joined the Red Wings thru six games he has three goals and four assists. Perhaps the change of scenery has made him a better player.

Jonathan Bernier allowed four goals in the Red Wings 4-3 loss to the Senators on Tuesday. He saved 29-33 shots against while taking the loss.

Fantasy Impact: Bernier did not play well against a poor Senators team tonight. His hot streak looks to have snapped. The Red Wings seemingly will go to Jimmy Howard next time out to see if he can break their losing streak.

Boyd helped Richard Panik in the first period of the 5-2 win on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Although he is on a three-game streak and has six points in eight games, Boyd is still a chancy pick in fantasy.

Hathaway commited the offense during a brawl in the Caps 5-2 defeat of Anaheim.

Fantasy Impact: The penalty includes an automatic suspension, so expect Hathaway to be unavailable on Wednesday.

Kirby Dach scores twice in win

By Douglas Roth

Kirby Dach had two goals in the Blackhawks 4-1 win over the Sabres on Sunday. He was a plus one with two goals, two PIM and four SOG in 13:46 of ice-time.

Fantasy Impact: Dach has been playing up to his draft pedigree. He now has five goals and four assists thru 14 games. It is even more impressive because he is doing it with almost no power-play time and not much ice-time. He should be stashed in almost every league.

Corey Crawford allowed a goal in the Blackhawks 4-1 win over the Sabers on Sunday. He saved 33-34 shots against while recording the win.

Fantasy Impact: Crawford is now 4-4-2 with a 3.02 GAA and a .914 SV% on the season. He has been playing great as of late and the entire team has caught fire. Look for the hawks to continue to split the work in half between the two netminders.

Taro Hirose scored a goal in the Red Wings 4-3 shootout loss to the Sharks on Saturday. He had one goal on one SOG in 9:59 of ice-time.

Fantasy Impact: Hirose did see a little bit over a minute of power-play time in this one. He still is not worth owning. He currently has one goal and five assists thru 18 games played.

Andreas Athanasiou scored two goals in the Red Wings 4-3 shootout loss to the Sharks on Saturday. He was a plus one with two goal on four SOG in 18:31 of ice-time.

Fantasy Impact: If you look up the definition of streaky player there is a picture of Athanasiou. He now has five goals in twenty games and four in his last four games. Look for him to continue this hot streak.

Category: Game Recaps


Jimmy Howard took the loss in the Red Wings 4-3 shootout loss to the Sharks on Saturday. He saved 16-19 shots against while taking the loss.

Fantasy Impact: Howard has played poorly as of late. If the Red Wings have any hope in turning this ship around they will need him to start playing better. He is currently 2-8-1 with a 3.86 GAA and a .884 SV%

Fantasy Impact: Drouin was injured in the Canadiens 5-2 win over Washington Friday. The team claims the wrist injury was not related to a ferocious hit he took from Capitals forward Alexander Ovechkin. It's a tough blow for fantasy owners, although suitable replacements should be available as free agency. Drouin finished tied for third in points for the Canadiens in 2018-19.
