Tyson Barrie posted one assist Thursday night in the Predators' 2-1 win over the Kraken.

Fantasy Impact: Barrie has not been much of a factor in the offensive zone of late for the Predators, registering points in just three of his last nine games (three assists) for the club.

The 32-year-old netminder has been solid when called upon despite being extremely limited behind No. 1 goaltender Juuse Saros, posting a .924 save percentage and 2.64 GAA in 11 appearances (5-4-1) between the pipes so far this season.

Nino Niederreiter tallied one assist Saturday night in the Predators' 3-1 loss to the Avalanche.

Fantasy Impact: Niederreiter has now posted points in three of his last six games (one goal, two assists) for a disappointing Nashville offensive attack.

Mattias Ekholm registered one assist Friday night in the Predators' 4-1 win over the Islanders.

Fantasy Impact: Ekholm has done little early in the season to provide any substantial fantasy value while operating as more of a stalwart in the defensive zone. The veteran defenseman will not post a large amount of point production as evidenced by his eight points (one goal, seven assists) in 23 games so far this season. Make no mistake however, as Ekholm will make his presence felt in ways that do not show up in the box score for the Predators.

Nashville Predators forward Cole Smith recorded an assist in Friday's season-opening win over the San Jose Sharks.

Fantasy Impact: Smith's second-period helper was the first point of his NHL career and helped give the Predators a lead they would not relinquish. The 26-year-old skated in just his 10th NHL contest on Friday but posted a solid 21 goals and 41 points across 59 contests with the AHL's Milwaukee Admirals a season ago.

Nashville Predators defenseman Dante Fabbro recorded an assist in Friday's season-opening win versus the San Jose Sharks.

Fantasy Impact: Fabbro's assist came in the second period on teammate Nino Niederreiter's insurance marker that helped the club to a 4-1 victory. The 24-year-old's offensive game took a notable step forward last season as he recorded three goals and 24 points across 66 games. He'll need to continue that progress to find himself on fantasy rosters this season.

Nashville Predators forward Cody Glass collected an assist in Friday's season-opening win versus the San Jose Sharks.

Fantasy Impact: Glass tallied an early second-period assist that helped provide the Predators with a 2-1 lead they would not relinquish in the eventual 4-1 victory. One of the final players to crack the opening-night roster, the 23-year-old will look to build on a season that saw him notch 14 goals and 62 points across 68 AHL games a season ago.

Nashville Predators forward Eeli Tolvanen scored in Friday's 4-1 season-opening win over the San Jose Sharks.

Fantasy Impact: Tolvanen's early second-period tally proved to be the game-winner as part of a season-opening 4-1 victory over the Sharks. A former first-rounder and top prospect, Tolvanen has yet to hit his stride at the NHL level, collecting 11 goals and 23 points across 75 games last season. Still only 23 years old, the club will be looking for a step forward from the Finn in his second full NHL campaign.

Nashville Predators forward Kiefer Sherwood recorded two points in Friday's season-opening win over the San Jose Sharks.

Fantasy Impact: Sherwood tallied the first goal of the 2022-23 NHL season in the first period before assisting on Nino Niederreiter's second-period tally. It was a fine start to the season for a player that appeared in just 11 NHL games last season, notching a goal and an assist in the process. With eight goals and 20 points through 88 career contests, Sherwood needs continued success to become fantasy relevant.
