Latest Player Updates

Justin Faulk recorded an assist Wednesday versus Anaheim. The assist came on the empty netter at the end of the game.

Fantasy Impact: Faulk has been one of the better goal-scoring defensemen in the NHL in the past. He has six straight seasons of 30+ points but only one over 37 (2014-15 with 49). He is on pace to fall short this season. Faulk is not currently on the top-level of fantasy defensemen but he has been a good option in the past.

Alex Pietrangelo scored two goals versus the Ducks Wednesday. He has 16 goals this season. The first goal of his in the game came on the power-play.

Fantasy Impact: Pietrangelo is a solid fantasy option although he has never been elite. He finished with 28 assists last season but has been over 30 in seven different seasons.

Jake Allen saved 26 of the 27 shots he faced after the resumption of the game against the Ducks Wednesday. St Louis would win 4-2.

Ben Bishop gave up four goals on 25 shots faced as the Stars were downed by the Rangers 4-2 Tuesday evening.

Fantasy Impact: Bishop was not at his finest Tuesday as he allowed four goals through two periods of play. He buckled down in the third to try and get the Stars back in the match, but the damage had already been done. His record will drop to 21-16-4 with a 2.50 GAA and 0.920 SV% in 44 appearances for 2019-20. He will need to be better than that if the Stars are to get out of their late-season swoon.

Andy Greene failed to record a point and finished with an even rating in the Islanders 5-4 shootout loss to the Canucks on Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Andy Greene was definitely not traded for to help the Islanders scoring woes as he only has three assists in his 10 games with the Islanders this season. For fantasy owners there is no need to have Greene on your roster.

Josh Bailey picked up an assist and a SOG in the Islanders 5-4 shootout loss to the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night. Bailey would leave the game in the first period not to return with an undisclosed injury.

Fantasy Impact: Josh Bailey was in the midst of an average season for the Islanders with 14 goals and 29 assists on the year. Bailey has played in every game for the Islanders this year, but that streak would appear to be in jeopardy with the Islanders playing next on Thursday night against the Flames.

Nick Leddy picked up and assist and a shot on goal as he finished with a plus two rating in the Islanders 5-4 shootout loss to the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Nick Leddy had gone 13 straight games without a point before picking up an assist against the Canucks on Tuesday. For the season Leddy is also a minus one, so fantasy owners would be wise to not have Leddy in their lineups.

Andrew Ladd opened the scoring for the Islanders on Tuesday night and would add three SOG to go along with is plus two rating; however, the Islanders would lose the game 5-4 to Vancouver.

Fantasy Impact: Andrew Ladd's goal on Tuesday night was his first of the season in Ladd's fourth game played for the Islanders this year. Unless something drastic changes Ladd should not be viewed as playable in fantasy.

Brock Nelson scored once in the second period and tied the game with his goal in the third period as the Islanders would fall in a shootout to the Canucks 5-4 on Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners were given a treat from Brock Nelson on Tuesday with his two goal performance against the Canucks. And, while he is the Islanders leading goal scorer, expectations for Nelson should be tempered as the Islanders as a team are really struggling as of late.
