  • Alex Goligoski MIN D
    Wild's Alex Goligoski: Being used sparingly
    9h ago

    Goligoski has been a healthy scratch for Minnesota's last three games.

    Goligoski has been used in just 19 of Minnesota's 48 games this season despite staying healthy. When he has been in the lineup in 2022-23, the 37-year-old's contributed a goal, three points, 19 hits and 26 blocks while averaging 17:02 of ice time. Unless an injury to a defenseman forces Minnesota to alter its plans, Goligoski is unlikely to see his role significantly grow as the campaign progresses.

  • Cal Clutterbuck NYI RW
    Islanders' Cal Clutterbuck: Season may be over
    12h ago

    Clutterbuck (upper body) may have played his last game this season, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

    Clutterbuck is officially still listed as out indefinitely, but it is fair to wonder if he has played his last game this season. Clutterbuck has dealt with multiple injuries this season, and his body may not be able to withstand his physical style of play. If Clutterbuck has played his last game of the season, then general manager Lou Lamoriello will have to explain why he gave Clutterbuck a two-year contract extension during the offseason and why he didn't trade him before the trade deadline last season.

    Wild's Marco Rossi: Excelling at AHL lowa
    14h ago

    Rossi has 26 points in 25 AHL games since his demotion, Thomas Williams of Hockeywilderness.com reports.

    Rossi, who was selected ninth overall in 2020, had only one assist in 16 games with the Wild before he was sent to the AHL to regain his confidence. Well, it sure looks like he is playing with plenty of confidence, as he has three goals and 10 points during his current seven-game points streak. Do not be surprised if Rossi is recalled from the minors in the near future.

    Capitals' Dylan Strome: Signs five-year extension
    18h ago

    Strome signed a five-year, $25 million contract extension Friday.

    Strome was slated to be an RFA at the end of the season as he signed a one-year, $3.5 million deal with the Capitals in July. The 25-year-old center is on pace for his best season in his career, as he has 11 goals and 36 points in 52 games. Strome has been a force on the power play in 2022-23 with three goals and 14 points thus far.

    Wright was injured Jan. 26, but it appears he's recovered rather quickly. The 19-year-old is expected to remain in the juniors ranks for the rest of the season, though it's possible he could be called up to the Kraken if Windsor's season comes to an earlier than expected end.

    Kotkaniemi registered two assists in Carolina's 5-1 victory over the Sabres on Wednesday.

    Kotkaniemi has seven goals and 20 points in 51 games in 2022-23. He was held off the scoresheet for five straight contests from Jan. 14-25, but since then he's registered four assists over four games.

Stepan entered the game averaging just 8:53 of ice time. Unless the 32-year-old's role increases substantially, he's unlikely to make regular offensive contributions.

    General manager Lou Lamoriello giving up a first-round pick for those numbers is getting harder and harder to justify. Romanov may have a future as a top-three defender, but he certainly isn't there yet and offers little to no fantasy value.

    Walker has been held off the scoresheet in his last 10 contests.

    Walker does have 13 hits and 19 blocks over that 10-game span though, which gives him two goals, nine points, 52 hits and 65 blocks in 46 contests this season. He's averaging just 15:05 of ice time this season, which is down from 18:33 over 123 contests from 2019-20 through 2021-22. Although he should continue to make regular contributions in terms of hits and blocks, his scoring pace isn't likely to increase meaningfully unless his role with the Kings grows.

    Samsonov allowed five goals on 29 shots in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Bruins.

    Samsonov entered this game having won five of his last seven appearances. All of those wins came when he allowed two or fewer goals, which wasn't the case Wednesday, as the Bruins put up five goals on the 25-year-old. On a slightly positive note, he did pick up an assist on one of the Leafs' two goals. He's had more good moments than bad ones this season, as evidenced by a 17-6-2 record with a 2.42 GAA and a .913 save percentage through 25 appearances. With Matt Murray (ankle) hurt, Samsonov has picked up more starts of late, but the Maple Leafs' goaltending situation is likely to be a timeshare when both are healthy.
