Fantasy Hockey News for Thursday

USA TODAY Sports

A fantasized look at Wednesday night's NHL action.

Nice line for Curtis Glencross as he put up 1+1=2, 3 hits 2 PIM, and plus-3. He's been shooting a lot lately to the tune of 13 shots and 4 points over his last 4 games.

Deep league special here as Matt Stajan gave you two assists, two hits, two blocks and a plus-3 last night. He's been a lot less than useless over his last 10 games with 2+6=8 and has even chipped in 12 hits and 15 blocks over that span.

Miikka Kiprusoff got back to winning and made 36 saves in the process. It was a solid follow up performance to the nightmare he suffered last time out when he was pulled after allowing 6 goals.

The Devils scored five goals last night but contributing on none of them was David Clarkson. After being one of the most productive players to open the season he has pulled an impressive vanishing act here with no goals, just two assists, and a minus-7 to show for his last 13 matches. Dude needs to step it up.

Scott Hartnell put his 5 game pointless streak to bed with 1+1=2, 8 PIM, 5 hits, 3 blocks, 1 PPP, and plus-1. This nets him fantasy line of the night especially considering the Flyers lost 5-2.

Jakub Voracek is still good as he, too, put up a goal and an assist last night. The multi-point game was his 9th of the last 17 games. He's not going away.

Speaking of multi-point games, Adam Henrique had a 3-point night for his first multi-point game of the season. His 2+1=3 last night gives him 5+1=6 in his last six contests.

Andrei Loktionov may have gone five games without a point, but he was impressive last night. He scored on a pretty toe drag in the 2nd period to put the game out of reach for the Flyers. He also added a powerplay assist while playing almost 16 minutes. You can see his confidence growing with each game. He's one to keep an eye on.

Two points for Patrik Elias (goal and assist) and he continues to be a point per game player with 27 in 27.

Robin Lehner with a great performance in a losing effort. He stopped 42 of 45 shots but lost in the skills competition. He's still unbeaten in regulation (1-0-4) this season but you'd love to see him take a couple of these shootouts (he's 0-3). Still, his peripherals are sparkling with .944 sv% and 2.07 gaa. With Bishop playing well, too, it will be interesting to see what the Senators do with Lehner once Craig Anderson returns.

Not sure if you've noticed but P.K. Subban is just absolutely on fire. He had 1+1=2, 2 PPP, 5 shots, 2 hits, and 2 blocks in last night's Canadiens victory. Over his last 11 games he has 4+10=14, 11 PPP, and a ridiculous 40 shots. He's now second in the NHL in points among defensemen and that's even with missing some games to start the season due to contract negotiations. Is it possible that he cracks that Team Canada roster?

The Shannahammer came down hard on Corey Perry as he was suspended for four games for his devastating check to the head of Jason Zucker.

Called up: Patrice Cormier, David Ullstrom, Chris Mueller, Jonathan Rheault, Cody Goloubef

Sent down: Yann Danis, Darcy Kuemper, Erik Gustafsson
