Roberto Luongo Headshot

Luongo stopped 33 of 35 shots in Saturday's win over the Kings.

Luongo stole the show for Florida, shutting the door in the third period to allow his team to hold on for a 3-2 victory. The 37-year-old had a great rebound game after he was burned for nine goals in his previous two outings. Luongo had been surrendering lots of goals prior to Saturday, but he was still finding ways to pick up the occasional win. The veteran appears to be on the decline with just 16 victories this season, but his .915 save percentage and heavy workload still make him of value in most fantasy leagues.

Peter Budaj Headshot

Budaj gave up three goals on 25 shots in Saturday's loss to the Panthers.

Budaj was outplayed by Roberto Luongo, who faced far more shots. The Los Angeles Kings netminder drops to 26-18-3 on the season with a .915 save percentage. Budaj was on a roll recently, but things appear to be trending downwards, as this marks the fifth straight game he's given up at least three goals. The losses are piling up, but Budaj has been outstanding at times this season, so there's no reason to doubt a bounce back.

James Neal Headshot

Neal recorded an assist during Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Wild. It was his third assist in the last two games.

Now with 27 points in 48 games, Neal is on pace for roughly a 40-point campaign, which would fall significantly short of the 58 points he posted last season. Missing a combined nine games to injury surely hasn't helped, but the fact remains Neal is not a top-six forward for the Preds at the moment. The role of No. 1 left wing now belongs to Viktor Arvidsson, which means Neal has been shuffled to the third line alongside Calle Jarnkrok and Colin Wilson. Neal has also become a notoriously streaky scorer this season, having been held off the scoresheet in 19 of 28 games since the beginning of December, which further limits Neal's fantasy value in most formats.

Philipp Grubauer Headshot

Grubauer will defend the net for Sunday's game against the Rangers, Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post reports.

Grubauer last started five games ago for the Capitals, posting a 38-save shutout effort against the Kings. With Washington playing a back-to-back set Saturday and Sunday, Grubauer finally receives a chance to knock some rust off Sunday. He squares off against a tough Rangers club who won six straight prior to a loss to the Islanders on Thursday.

Yannick Weber Headshot

Weber notched an assist during Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Wild. He also dished out a pair of hits, blocked two pucks and launched five shots on goal.

Weber's stat line usually isn't something to get too excited about, but he's been making more of an impact lately. Saturday's helper was his second in the past three games, and his ice time of 15:06 was three minutes higher than his season average (12:02). He's still skating primarily on the Preds' third defensive pairing, but if you're in an ultra-deep league and need to bolster your blue line, Weber is worth a look right now.

Cory Conacher Headshot

Conacher was reassigned to the team's AHL Syracuse affiliate Sunday, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Tampa Bay recalled the 27-year-old winger just Saturday as an apparent depth option, but he didn't draw into the lineup and has since been returned. This has been a common theme for the team's fringe players this season, so it shouldn't come as a shock to many that he's headed back. Even if he rejoins the Bolts again this season, it's unlikely Conacher will gain fantasy relevance in any but the deepest of leagues.

Khris Davis Headshot

Davis confirmed on Sunday that he will not play for Team Mexico in the World Baseball Classic, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Davis also stated that he has felt "over-extended" recently and will forego the WBC in order to remain at Athletics' camp and go through the standard spring training regimen. He's coming off of a 42 home run campaign and is an attractive fantasy option entering the 2017 season.

Colin Wilson Headshot

Wilson snapped a three-game pointless skid with a goal and an assist during Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Wild.

That makes six points in 10 games for Wilson since he returned from an eight-game absence in January due to a mystery ailment. He's seeing roughly 15 minutes of ice time per game these days playing on the Preds' second line, including a modest amount power-play time. Wilson is a notoriously streaky scorer, but he might be able to help you in deeper formats right now given his current level of output.

Fernando Abad Headshot

Abad, who didn't pitch well after being acquired by Boston last season and was left off the postseason roster, was retained by the Red Sox because they recognize he can be an effective left-handed reliever, Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

Abad had a 6.39 ERA over 12.2 innings in 18 games for Boston, but left-handed hitters were just 3-for-23 (.130) against him, suggesting he can still be a useful left-handed specialist. He'll join Robbie Ross as the primary left-handers in Boston's bullpen.

Ariel Miranda Headshot

Miranda will operate as a starting pitcher during spring training, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

With the offseason additions of Drew Smyly and Yovani Gallardo, Miranda became the odd man out in the Mariners' starting rotation. The fact that he'll operate as a starter during spring training suggests that the 27-year-old will be utilized as the team's primary replacement starter heading into the 2017 season.
