After 14-seasons with the Boston Bruins, Chara signed a one-year $795,000 contract with the Washington Capitals. The 43-year old defenseman spurned the Bruins who offered a reduced role to stay with the club. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: At this stage of his career, Chara is likely to see time on the second or third defense pairing. Last season in 68 games he posted five goals and nine assists.

Jaroslav Halak turned aside 29 of 30 shots in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Hurricanes in Game 3.

Fantasy Impact: Halak was called into service when Tuukka Rask unexpectedly announced that he has opted out of the remainder of the playoffs. The 35-year-old net minder has proved more than capable during the regular season, compiling an 18-6-6 record with a 2.39 GAA and .919 SV% in 31 games before the NHL season paused. He most likely will start every game for the remainder of the playoffs.

Fantasy Impact: Has has finally rebounded off two straight starts that were duds. With 25 wins and just 81 goals against, Rask has been fantasy hockey's top netminder this season. He'll start again Thursday when the Bruins host Tampa Bay in the second of the home-and-home series.

Charlie McAvoy scored the game-winning-goal in overtime to lift the Bruins to a 2-1 victory over the Blackhawks on Wednesday. He was a plus one with a goal and two SOG in 22:02 of ice-time.

Fantasy Impact: MacAvoy now has 20 points on the season. Yet he only has this one goal. It was only a matter of time before he found the twine. He is a borderline fantasy starter and should be owned in every league.

Jake DeBrusk scored a power play goal to put the Bruins ahead for good in their 2-1 victory at Winnipeg Friday night.

Fantasy Impact: The little-owned DeBrusk may be worth keeping an eye on for substitution/bench depth purposes during the second half.

Patrice Bergeron scored a second period power play goal, his 22nd goal of the season, as the Bruins topped the Jets 2-1 Friday night.

Fantasy Impact: Bergeron's 17 power play points are fourth most on the Bruins. The 35-year-old now has 22 goals and 20 assists in 43 games this season.

Danton Heinen scored his fourth goal of the season in Boston's 3-2 shootout loss against the Flyers Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Heinen is coming off a 12 goal campaign in '18-19. This season he's seeing time on the Bruins second line and first power play unit. He scored 16 goals and 31 assists in '17-18, numbers that he could approach again if his increased playing time is sustained. He's worthy of keeping an eye on in deeper fantasy leagues.

With David Krecji on IR and Karson Kuhlman set to miss at least a month with a fractured tibia, 23-year-old Bruins forward Anders Bjork is poised for a full-time role. (Source: NBC Sports Boston)

Fantasy Impact: The former Notre Dame standout's career has been stalled by injury, but given his offensive skills, he could be poised for a break out if he settles in at left wing on Boston's third line. Keep an eye on him in deep leagues to see how the situation pans out.

Matt Grzelcyk scored the only Boston Bruins goal during Wednesday's 4-1 Game 7 loss to the St. Louis Blues.

Fantasy Impact: After not playing since May 29, Grzelcyk finally returned to the starting lineup Wednesday night for a decisive Game 7 against St. Louis. He contributed with his fourth goal of the playoffs, but it was too little too late. The Bruins were already down 4-0 with almost two minutes remaining in the game.

Noel Acciari has been cleared for contact in Game 6 after it looked like he may have sustained a concussion when he got tripped up by Tyler Bozak in the third period of Game 5. (Source: Boston Herald)

Fantasy Impact: The Bruins are in a do-or-do game situation Sunday evening as they are down 3-2 in the series. Boston will need as many of their role players present for Sunday's action if they are to force a Game 7 for Wednesday night. Acciari currently has four points and a plus-three rating through 17 games played this postseason.

Brandon Carlo scored a shorthanded goal 14:19 into the second period of Game 4 to knot things up 2-2.

Fantasy Impact: It was impressive to see Carlo score his first ever postseason goal on the penalty kill during Monday's 4-2 loss in Game 4. He also possesses a plus-eight rating during the playoffs, making him a very valuable asset on the back-end for the Bruins.

Charlie Coyle scored a goal 13:14 into the first period to tie up Game 4 1-1. Unfortunately for Boston, the Blues would come out victorious in the end with a 4-2 win.

Fantasy Impact: This was Coyle's ninth goal of the postseason and his third straight game with one as well. He will look to continue to produce in Game 5 at home this Thursday night.

Joakim Nordstrom provided assists on both Sean Kuraly's goal and Noel Acciari's goal during Boston's 7-2 Game 3 win over the Blues.

Fantasy Impact: Nordstrom is currently riding a three-game point streak and has produced five points in his previous five games played. Nordstrom has been contributing at an impressive rate lately and is becoming a fine role player as the Bruins are closing in on their second title within the decade.

Marcus Johansson joined in on the Bruins scoring frenzy with a goal and assist during Game 3 Saturday evening.

Fantasy Impact: Johansson had gone four straight games without a point prior to the start of Game 3 Saturday. It is encouraging to see he has some life in his offensive production for the Bruins. It remains to be seen if he will be able to build upon Game 3's performance in the near future.

Fantasy Impact: Clifton owns a plus-four rating and has earned four points through 13 games played this postseason.
