Blake Coleman picked up a goal and an assist in a 5-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks.

Fantasy Impact: Blake Coleman has four points in his last five games but only has 33 points (16 goals, 17 assists) in 75 games this season. Coleman has been hot lately but is still a role player on a great Calgary Flames team. Fantasy managers should still fade Coleman despite the temptation to ride the hot hand.

Mikael Backlund recorded four points (1G, 3A) in a 6-0 win over the Vegas Golden Knights on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Backlund has been underperforming for most of the season (19 points in 42 games) but was bound for a breakthrough eventually. Most managers will be holding on to Backlund in hopes he can find more consistency. If he is able to produce points more regularly, managers may want to "sell high" in a trade.

Christopher Tanev recorded four points (1G, 3A) on Wednesday in a 4-2 victory over the Arizona Coyotes.

Fantasy Impact: For the first time in his career, Tanev scored four points in a game. Although many fantasy managers are not starting him, he had an amazing stat line on Wednesday. Along with four points he also had two shots on goal, two hits, and 21:08 of ice time.

Fantasy Impact: Kylington had a solid night for fantasy managers, along with one goal, he added two PIM, four shots on goal, one hit and 18:36 of ice time. He now has 20 points in 40 games and can be a sneaky play for fantasy managers as he is getting second-pair defensive minutes plus power-play time as well.

Sean Monahan scored his seventh goal of the season in Monday's 7-1 victory over the Blues. He has just 19 points (7 goals, 12 assists) in 37 games this season.

Fantasy Impact: What happened to Sean Monahan? How can this be the same guy who scored 34 goals and was over a point-per-game player just three seasons ago? This is Monahan's lowest scoring pace since his rookie 2013-14 season, and he's also a team-worst -11. If you drafted him, it's time to cut bait.

Milan Lucic scored his sixth goal of the season on Monday, in a 2-1 shootout win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Fantasy Impact: Lucic has been a surprise so far in the season by finding the back of the net six times so far in 22 games. He may not be as fantasy relevant as he was in the past, but he can still offer value with the potential of adding hits and PIM.
