Phil Kessel had an assist and also fired three shots on goal during Arizona's 4-1 versus Nashville.

Fantasy Impact: The Playoffs are Kessel's time to shine. He has three assists in three games played this series and has been involved with eight shots. He has 80 points (33 goals, 47 assists) in 90 career playoff games and is proving to be the kind of veteran presence the Coyotes were looking for.

Taylor Hall scored a goal and added an assist during Arizona's 4-1 win versus Nashville in Game 3 of the best-of-five qualifying round series. He also had three shots on goal in 18:31 minutes of ice time.

Fantasy Impact: In three games played in this series, Hall has one goal and three assists with eight shots on goal. The Coyotes are up 2-1 in the series and have a chance to close it out on Friday. Hall was a sleeper pick in most fantasy pools, but should Arizona advance he has the possibility of being a great steal with the extra games played.

Raanta owns an 8-8-2 record, with a 2.76 GAA and .918 save percentage this season.

Fantasy Impact: Antti Raanta is a decent start in fantasy leagues right now. However, with NHL all-star Darcy Kuemper due back soon, Rananta should return to his backup role in the near future.

Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored his third goal of the season as the Coyotes defeated the Sharks 3-2.

Fantasy Impact: 2019-20 has been a down year for Oliver Ekman-Larsson, at least from an offensive perspective. OEL has 3 goals, and 12 points in 36 games this season. Throughout his career Oliver Ekman-Larsson has been a safe a bet to hit 40 points in most seasons. Well he will likely fall short of that this year, we should see a bit of an increase in production to end the season.

Clayton Keller recorded an assist as the Coyotes bested the Sharks 3-2.

Fantasy Impact: Keller has been playing well lately, he has at least a point in seven of his last nine games. Still just 21 years-old, Keller is great dynasty player to own. However, with 24 points in 36 games he has played his way on the redraft radar as well.

Chychrun scored his 7th goal of the season as the Coyotes fell 5-2 to the Flames.

Fantasy Impact: Jakob Chychrun is an option in deeper leagues but by no means a must start. He has 7 goals and 12 points in 33 games this season.

Dvorak has 5 points, 2 goals and 3 assists during his current four-game point streak.

Fantasy Impact: Christian Dvorak has 8 goals and 17 points in 29 games this year. The 23-year-old should eclipse his previous career high of 37 points this season. Still he isn't a recommended fantasy option outside of deeper leagues.

With the helper in Tuesday's 4-2 win, Goligoski now has at least one point in four of his last five games.

Fantasy Impact: Alex Goligoski is off to a good start in 2019-20. He has 17 points in 29 games, which has him tied for 20th-overall in points by defensemen. Goligoski has regularly topped 30 points throughout his career and 2019-20 will be no different. Fantasy owners can do a lot worse than Goligoski.

Nick Schmaltz had a goal and an assist in the Coyotes 5-3 win over the Devils.

Fantasy Impact: Nick Schmaltz is off to good start to the 2019-20 season, he has 4 goals, and 11 points in 10 games. Schmaltz was also good for the Coyotes last season, after being acquired from the Blackhawks he had 14 points in 17 games. Schmaltz should be in fantasy lineups.

Hayton scored the game winning goal as the Coyotes beat the Devils 5-3.

Fantasy Impact: Barrett Hayton has had a difficult time getting in to the Coyotes lineup this season. However, he has produced when given the opportunity, 1 goal and 1 assist in 3 games this season. It remains to be seen how the Coyotes will use the 19 year-old, former 5th-overall pick, but Hayton could offer fantasy upside if he starts to get regular playing time. For now Barrett Hayton is merely a name to watch outside of dynasty leagues.

Fantasy Impact: The twenty-two-year-old Crouse has yet to record a point this season, after an 11 goal, 25 point 2018-19 campaign. Crouse will not produce too much offensively, but his massive hit totals play in any fantasy league that counts hits.

Fantasy Impact: Demers has been a decent depth player in non-shallow leagues in the past. He is in a major slump this season.
