M. Rielly - D
Rielly delivered two assists Saturday in a 6-3 win over Montreal.
And with that, Rielly has his first 60-point season and he has done it in 61 games. He's the best offensive defender in blue and white since the days of Borje Salming. Rielly is second only to Brent Burns in scoring from the blue line and he's tied with four forwards for 33rd overall in league scoring. One word: elite.

S. Girard - D
Girard produced his 16th helper in a 5-0 win over the Predators on Saturday.
Facing his former team, Girard made sure to show them what they've been missing. The 20-year-old blueliner is up to 19 points in 62 games, making it possible for him to match the 23 points he had between the Predators and Avalanche last year. He's still likely a couple years away from more widespread fantasy relevance.

B. Schenn - LW
Schenn (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.
Schenn has already missed the past two games, and will miss at least two more following this move. Despite a slow start to the season, Schenn was surging prior to getting injured, with 15 points from 14 games.

T. Barrie - D
Barrie contributed an assist on the man advantage in Saturday's 5-0 win over the Predators.
Barrie now has two goals and 18 helpers on the power play this year, accounting for just under half of his 42 points in 58 games. He added three shots to bring his season total to 155. Despite struggling to get on the scoresheet in February, Barrie remains a strong blueliner for fantasy purposes.

S. Andrighetto - F
Andrighetto has four assists in his last three games.
The often-streaky winger has found his way onto the scoresheet with more regularity in February, registering five points in 12 games. In Saturday's 5-0 win over the Predators, he also twice raised a referee's arm, earning four PIM. It's unlikely the bad boy routine continues, as that gave him 10 PIM this year, matching his career-high in the category from last season.
Added 10:52 pm (EST)
M. Rantanen - F
Rantanen has four points in his last six games.
Sure, it's a far cry from the elite production he had in October (21 points in 16 contests), but it's good to see the 22-year-old picking up the pace after struggling early in February. Barring absolute disaster, Rantanen's totals this year should exceed the 84 points he posted last season.
Added 10:49 pm (EST)
M. Marner - RW
Marner picked up two assists Saturday in a 6-3 win over Montreal.
The points spell a bit of relief for the electric winger who had gone three games without a point. Marner had been stuck at 69 points, a total that equalled his career mark from last season. But now that his longest point drought of the season is over, Marner should get back to delivering electrifying offence for the Leafs and his owners.
Added 10:46 pm (EST)
E. Johnson - D
Johnson led the Avs with six blocked shots in Saturday's 5-0 win over the Predators.
Philipp Grubauer and the Colorado defense were under siege, as 38 saves were made by the goalie. Johnson's half-dozen blocks helped make the German goalie's life a little easier in a difficult but impressive performance. Johnson has 11 hits and 12 blocks in his last five appearances.
