    • Mitchell Marner TOR RW
      Maple Leafs' Mitch Marner: Collects 30th assist
      7m ago

      Marner produced a power-play assist in Monday's 6-4 loss to Edmonton on Monday.

      Marner logged 4:28 of ice time with the man advantage in Monday's loss and wound up coming away with an assist for his efforts, giving him 30 helpers to go along with 11 goals this season. Missing a large chunk of games with an ankle injury hasn't seemed to slow Marner down, as he's found the scoresheet 23 times in 15 contests since returning from injury.

      Maple Leafs' Kasperi Kapanen: Finds two apples in home loss
      18m ago

      Kapanen collected a pair of assists in a 6-4 loss to the Oilers on Monday.

      The Finnish forward has certainly responded the right way since being benched, as Kapanen has seven points in six games since head coach Sheldon Keefe's "message". Even though it came in a loss, Kapanen's latest performance suggests the 23-year-old is heating up at precisely the right moment.

      Canadiens' Marco Scandella: TOI increase in second game
      1h ago

      Scandella had two shots and two hits over 22:28 of ice time in Monday's 3-2 loss to Winnipeg.

      Scandella, who was promoted to the second defensive pairing with Jeff Petry, had nearly seven minutes more ice time than he did in his Montreal debut Saturday. Canadiens head coach Claude Julien is leaning on veteran blueliners, like the 29-year-old Scandella, with the team mired in a six-game skid (0-5-1).

      Canadiens' Tomas Tatar: Involved in both goals
      2h ago

      Tatar had two assists, one shot and four hits in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Jets.

      Tatar picked up a secondary assist on Montreal's first goal and later teamed up with linemate Ilya Kovalchuck to set up the second. It was his ninth multi-point effort in 43 games. The 29-year-old Tatar leads Montreal in goals (16) and assists (21).

    • Ilya Kovalchuk MON LW
      Canadiens' Ilya Kovalchuk: Skates on top line
      2h ago

      Kovalchuk had an assist, four shots and six hits over 19:25 of ice time in Monday's 3-2 loss to Winnipeg.

      Kovalchuk was active in his Montreal debut as evidenced by the number of hits; the six hits are half the number he recorded in 17 games with the Kings this season. He skated on the Canadiens' top line, taking the spot of Brendan Gallagher (concussion) on the right wing, and finished second among the team's forwards in ice time. That's a good sign as the Canadiens were concerned about the 36-year-old forward's conditioning after he had not played in a game since mid-November. The veteran will have his conditioning tested Tuesday when the Habs play the second of back-to-back set at Detroit.

    • James Neal EDM LW
      Oilers' James Neal: Wrecking ball versus Leafs
      5h ago

      Neal posted 10 hits and four shots on goal in Monday's 6-4 win over the Maple Leafs.

      Neal's point drought stretched to three games, and he's only hit the scoresheet twice in his last 10 outings. However, he provided fantasy owners a nice consolation prize with the heavy play, accounting for nearly a third of the Oilers' 33 hits as a team. Neal remained at 27 points to go with 100 shots and 71 hits through 45 contests.

      Oilers' Ryan Nugent-Hopkins: Sets up McDavid's beauty goal

      Nugent-Hopkins had an assist and went plus-2 in Monday's 6-4 win over the Maple Leafs.

      Nugent-Hopkins got the puck to Connor McDavid and the superstar did the rest for the Oilers' sixth and final goal of the game. Nugent-Hopkins has been no slouch himself lately, with three tallies and five helpers in his last seven outings. The 26-year-old is up to 26 points (nine scores, 17 assists) through 39 games.

      Kopitar registered an assist and two shots on goal in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Blue Jackets.

      Kopitar had the secondary helper on Alex Iafallo's tally early in the first period. The Slovenian center is up to 38 points (15 goals, 23 assists) in 44 appearances this season. He's added 84 shots on goal, 16 PIM and a minus-2 rating.

      Blue Jackets' Alexander Wennberg: Slings helper
      6h ago

      Wennberg posted an assist in Monday's 4-2 win over the Kings.

      The Swede has five assists in his last seven games. Wennberg is up to 15 points and 55 shots on goal through 42 games this season. Monday was the 25-year-old's 400th career game, and he's compiled 194 points (37 goals, 157 helpers) so far, or roughly 40 points every 82 outings.

      Dubois recorded two assists in Monday's 4-2 win over the Kings.

      Dubois helped out on Nathan Gerbe's equalizer in the second period and Gustav Nyquist's empty-netter in the third. The 21-year-old center has put together a strong campaign with 30 points, 100 shots on goal and 55 hits through 43 appearances.

      Oilers' Connor McDavid: Big night in Toronto
      7h ago

      McDavid put up four points in a 6-4 win over the Maple Leafs on Monday.

      The Oilers' captain fired eight shots on goal against Toronto but only came away with one goal, but it was an absolute dandy that saw him shake Morgan Rielly before roofing a shot for his 24th goal of the campaign. McDavid is up to 69 points in 45 games, and his assist on Leon Draisaitl's power-play marker was McDavid's 30th point with the man advantage in 2019-20.

      10h ago

      Wheeler dished out two assists -- one shorthanded -- while skating in 17:06 of ice time in Monday's 3-2 win over Montreal.

      Wheeler was unselfish Monday, dishing his teammate Nikolaj Ehlers back door on a 2-on-0 shorthanded goal in the second period for the game's second goal. Monday's effort leaves Wheeler with 14 goals and 24 assists through 42 games this campaign, as he's racked up seven points in his past five games. His 38 points halfway through the season keep him on pace for at least 70 points for the fifth consecutive season.

      Nygard found Alex Chiasson for the tally at 13:41 of the second period. The assist snapped a five-game point drought for the Swede. He's up to seven points and 33 shots on goal in primarily a bottom-six role through 28 contests this season. Without much in the way of non-scoring stats, Nygard doesn't command a lot of fantasy attention.

      5h ago

      Bear picked up an assist and four shots on goal in Monday's 6-4 win over the Maple Leafs.

      Bear has found his way lately with five helpers in his last eight outings. For the season, he's at 15 points, 60 shots on goal, 61 blocked shots and 22 PIM through 45 games. The recent uptick in offense, plus solid non-scoring numbers, could make the 22-year-old worth a look as defensive depth in DFS contests.

      Jones skated only 9:09 in the contest, the fourth time he's failed to crack 10 minutes this season. The 22-year-old has just three assists, 23 blocked shots and a minus-4 rating in 20 games. Jones would likely return to AHL Bakersfield when Matt Benning (head) returns -- his long-term development would benefit from earning regular minutes at a lower level.

      Nurse has doubled his goal output to four with a pair over the last two games. The defenseman has 21 points, 104 shots on goal, 92 hits and 77 blocked shots in 45 contests overall. He's got a long-shot chance at 40 points for a second straight season, but solid non-scoring stats can make him of value in many fantasy formats.

      An early goal by Alex Iafallo was not enough of a cushion for Quick, who would give up three straight goals to the Blue Jackets. The American dropped to 11-16-2 with a 3.05 GAA and an .893 save percentage in 29 starts this season. He's struggled for two straight campaigns -- Quick is only a viable fantasy option in deeper formats.

      Merzlikins' recent success continued in a strong win. He's now won three of four starts since Joonas Korpisalo went down with a knee injury. Merzlikins improved to 3-5-4 with a 2.86 GAA and a .908 save percentage in 14 appearances this season.

      Smith was staked to a 3-0 lead early, and that was more than enough on this night, as Toronto would get only to within a goal. Following back-to-back wins, the veteran netminder is .500 on the year, holding a 9-9-3 record in 23 games this season. Next up is a road game in Montreal on Thursday before returning to Alberta to take on the Flames on Saturday. Smith will start at least one of those contests.

      Maple Leafs' Michael Hutchinson: Gives up three in relief
      7h ago

      Hutchinson replaced Frederik Andersen on Monday and allowed three goals on 13 shots in a 6-4 loss to the Oilers.

      Coming off a win, Hutchinson was meant to have the night off but was called into action after Andersen struggled early. The Maple Leafs' backup did not fare much better than their starter, as Toronto spent most of the game chasing Oilers players all around the ice. Considering how much Andersen has played this year, don't expect to see Hutchinson back between the pipes anytime soon. The Dane likely faces Winnipeg on Wednesday and Toronto doesn't play back-to-back games until Feb. 7 and 8.

      Andersen was pulled from Monday's 6-4 loss to Edmonton after allowing three goals on 16 shots.

      A rare off night from Andersen forced Michael Hutchinson into Toronto's crease, but the Maple Leafs' backup also had his struggles containing the Oilers' prolific offense, giving up three goals on 13 shots after replacing the Dane. Andersen has been great nearly all season long, so this performance shouldn't cause his owners or team to lose faith in his abilities. Expect him to be between the pipes Wednesday against the Jets, though, Toronto has yet to announce its starter for that contest.

      No surprise here as Merzlikins will start his fourth straight contest for the Blue Jackets. He's been terrific over his last three outings, going 2-1-0 with a .945 save percentage and 1.68 GAA. Merzlikins will continue getting the bulk of the work while Joonas Korpisalo (knee) is facing a lengthy absence.
