Fantasy Impact: Shesterkin has rebounded after a dismal stretch in net, allowing one goal or less in four of his last five starts (5-0-0) for the Rangers.

Fantasy Impact: Trouba has struggled to make a consistent impact in the offensive zone of late, registering points in just three of his last 10 games (three assists) for the Rangers.

Jonathan Quick (11-4-2) turned aside 32 out of 33 shots in Monday's 2-1 overtime win over the Avalanche.

Fantasy Impact: The veteran was lights out in this one. Strangely enough, his per-game numbers on the year have been better than Igor Shesterkin's. Quick improved both his GAA and SV% to 2.35 and .918 respectively. He should be used as the 1B to Shesterkin's 1A, so if you roster Shesterkin it would be wise to hold on to Quick as well. Also, if you need a goaltender in a deeper league, Quick may be the pickup for you.

Erik Gustafsson scored his fourth goal of the season in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Kraken.

Fantasy Impact: The veteran defenceman is up to 21 points in 43 games on the season. Since Adam Fox returned, Gustafsson has seen his production fall off a cliff. He should be left on the waiver wire in all leagues, including deeper formats at this point.

Blake Wheeler scored twice in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Kraken.

Fantasy Impact: Blake Wheeler has been a bit of a disappointment this season, but the potential will always be there for nights like this. However, with just 17 points in 43 games, there are better options available on the waiver wire.

Will Cuylle scored his seventh goal of the season in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Panthers.

K’Andre Miller scored twice, added an assist, and had two hits and three shots in Wednesday’s 5-1 win over the Capitals.

Fantasy Impact: Miller was a man possessed in this one. It was easily the best game of the year for the young defenceman. He improved his numbers on the season to seven goals and eight assists in 31 games. A decent scoring pace, and one that makes him worthy of a roster spot in deeper formats.

Ryan Lindgren scored his second goal of the season and added three shots in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Sabres.

Fantasy Impact: The veteran is more of a stay-at-home defenceman, and for that reason, does not serve much value in any formats of Fantasy Hockey. Leave him on the waiver wire in your league.

Adam Edstrom added three shots and scored his first career goal in his first career game in Friday's 5-1 win over the Ducks.

Fantasy Impact: What a debut for the kid. This is everything you hope for when you are about to take the ice for the first time. While it is quite the story, the massive forward is best left on the waiver wire until he forces your hand.

Jonny Brodzinski earned his third and fourth assists of the year in Sunday's 6-5 win over the Sharks.

Fantasy Impact: Brodzinski now has four points in just over 24 hours. The veteran is finally getting a chance to show what he is capable of. It may be premature to add him in your league, but in the deepest of formats, add him to the watchlist and monitor this situation closely.

Jimmy Vesey added three shots and scored his fifth goal of the season in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Red Wings.

Fantasy Impact: Vesey has had games this season in which he has flashed his potential, however, the veteran simply can not provide consistent offence. With five goals and three assists through 19 games, you can chase upside elsewhere on the waiver wire.

Free-agent right wing Patrick Kane has agreed to a deal with the Detroit Red Wings according to Chris Johnston. (Source: Chris Johnston on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Kane is still recovering from hip surgery, but once healthy will be slotted into a top-six forward role alongside captain Dylan Larkin and former Chicago teammate Alex DeBrincat. The superstar sniper offers explosive goal-scoring ability from anywhere in the offensive zone for a Detroit team looking to return to the postseason in a loaded Eastern Conference.

Tyler Pitlick scored his first goal this season in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Bruins.

Fantasy Impact: Through 11 games this year, Pitlick has one goal and two assists. The veteran is more of a grinder and does not produce enough in any area to warrant a roster spot in any format of Fantasy Hockey. Leave him on the waiver wire in your league.
