Taylor Hall recorded an assist and played 18:22 minutes in the Coyotes 3-2 win against the Sharks.

Fantasy Impact: Hall has had a bit of a slow start to the 2019-20 season, 6 goals in 30 games while with the Devils, is below his usual standard. However, Hall will have a chance to produce in Arizona. The Coyotes started Taylor Hall on a line with Phil Kessel and Christian Dvorak. If that line sticks together it should mean good things for the fantasy outlook of all three players. Hall and Kessel should both finish the year strong.

Will Butcher and the New Jersey Devils avoided arbitration as they came to terms on a three-year contract worth $3.73 million. (Source: Elliotte Friedman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: After an excellent rookie season that produced 44 points (23 on the power-play), Butcher experienced the dreaded sophomore slump. He averaged over three more minutes of ice-time, and virtually the same amount of power-play time, yet he posted just 30 points (14 on the power-play) in 2018-19. New Jersey's power-play efficiency as a team dropped 3.7%, so it was to be expected that Butcher's overall production would take a hit as a result. The Devils addressed this regression with the addition of P.K. Subban, so it looks like Butcher will be squeezed off the first power-play unit due to his presence. The Devils have turned themselves into a more threatening offensive team overall, which bodes well for Butcher 5-on-5, but he will likely find himself demoted to PP2.

Kinkaid picks up his third win in his last ten starts. He wound up stopping 33 of 35 shots.

Fantasy Impact: Kinkaid was lights out on Sunday finishing with a .943 save percentage. He isn't worth adding now that Cory Schneider is healthy.

Brian Boyle scored a goal in the Devils 4-2 loss to the Maple Leafs on Thursday. He scored one goal on one SOG in 11:49 of ice-time.

Fantasy Impact: Boyle is on pace for his second 20 goal season in his career. Th only time he scored 20 goals was back in 2010-2011 when he scored 21 goals. Six of his 12 goals thus far have come on the power-play.

Marcus Johansson got his 9th assist of the season on Brian Boyle’s goal in the third period of the Devils 2-1 overtime shootout loss to the Predators on Saturday night.

Fantasy Impact: Marcus Johansson is trying to rediscover his form from 2016-2017 with the Capitals when he scored 58 points. He spent most of last season and the start of this season injured. So it may not be until the second half until the Devils see what they expected to get when they acquired Johansson. Johansson has 6 goals and 9 assists through 29 games. Johansson may see a spike in his production while filling in for injured Taylor Hall on the first line with Nico Hischier and Kyle Palmieri. Johansson is a solid medium to deep fantasy league player.
