Thomas Vanek Headshot

Vanek picked up an assist and fired five shots on goal in Tuesday's win over Philadelphia.

Vanek is now riding a four-game point streak, bringing him to 13 points (five goals) in 21 games on the year. While he's only managed assists during this streak, Vanek has looked very solid of late and made some great passes. He's skating on the third line, but Vanek has racked up over half of his points with the man advantage and remains a valuable fantasy winger in deeper formats. The veteran has never gone more than three games without appearing on the scoresheet and is fitting in nicely with Vancouver.

Henrik Sedin Headshot

Sedin dished out a pair of helpers in Tuesday's win over Philadelphia.

One of the assists came with the man advantage, where Sedin plays on the top unit alongside rising young star Brock Boeser. Sedin's nine points through 21 games are nothing special, but he's still a threat with the man advantage and should rack up a decent point total. The 37-year-old isn't as consistent as he once was, but Sedin can still fill the scoresheet every now then and is a capable offensive producer.

Loui Eriksson Headshot

Eriksson tallied his first goal of the season and added a helper in Tuesday's win over the Flyers.

It may seem surprising it took this long for him to score, but the veteran has actually only appeared in nine games this season due to injury. Eriksson's goal came on an empty net, but he also made a slick pass to set up Sven Baertschi on the power play earlier in the game. With six points through nine contests, the Canucks would love for Eriksson to start supplying more depth scoring. He wasn't good in his first year with Vancouver, but he's put up back-to-back multi-point outings and plays on the power play, making a bounce-back season still a realistic possibility. Keep an eye on him and snatch him up if he keeps up the production.

Daniel Sedin Headshot

Sedin scored his fourth goal of the season and added a helper in Tuesday's win over the Flyers.

It was one of his better efforts on the season, as Sedin scored a slick breakaway goal and set up Brock Boeser on the power play. The multi-point effort snapped a five-game pointless drought for Sedin, who now has 10 points in 21 games on the season. Expect some inconsistency, but his second-line gig and role on the power play still make him a valuable fantasy option.
1:39 am (EST)
Jacob Markstrom Headshot

Markstrom stopped 36 of 38 shots in Tuesday's win over the Flyers.

Markstrom really was the difference, as the Canucks chased Michal Neuvirth and got timely saves from their netminder when they needed them. The 27-year-old Swede advances to 6-7-2 on the season with a .913 save percentage. Markstrom had been struggling recently, so this was exactly the effort he needed to get things back on track. He's been up-and-down, but look for this strong performance to be a building block moving forward.
1:00 am (EST)
Brian Elliott Headshot

Elliott stopped all 13 shots in relief of Michal Neuvirth in Tuesday's loss to the Canucks.

Elliott was expected to get a night off after starting the last five games, but the Canucks lit up Neuvirth, causing him to be pulled after allowing four goals on 22 shots. Elliott wasn't tested too much, but he did make a couple impressive saves and allowed the Flyers to attempt to forge a comeback. He's presumed to be the starter in Philadelphia right now and owns a decent .910 save percentage through 15 appearances. Elliott has overall been playing quite well lately, but the Flyers have lost five straight and it's hard to recommend either of their netminders in fantasy right now. Wait until the team gets it together before you get Elliott in your lineup.

Michal Neuvirth Headshot

Neuvirth was pulled Tuesday against Vancouver after giving up four goals on 22 shots.

Brian Elliott had taken over the crease in Philadelphia and this was Neuvirth's chance to make a statement. Unfortunately, the Canucks had other plans. The Czech netminder looked out of place Tuesday and was pulled late in the second period. He had given up four goals in his last outing and this shaky showing won't earn the praise of coach Dave Hakstol. Neuvirth's .916 save percentage isn't awful, but the 29-year-old has struggled when called upon of late and doesn't make for a great fantasy play on a Flyers team that has now lost five straight.
12:36 am (EST)
Brock Boeser Headshot

Boeser scored twice in Tuesday's win over the Flyers.

Boeser is the first Canucks rookie to score in three straight games since Jason King did so in 2003, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The 20-year-old has been remarkably consistent this season, managing 19 points through his first 18 games. Boeser is one of the early favorites for the Calder Trophy and has become a must-own fantasy player. He scored one of his goals Tuesday with a snipe on the power play and has fit in perfectly on the top unit. Boeser is a star in the making and is already rewarding those who took a chance on him this year.
12:27 am (EST)
Tyler Seguin Headshot

Seguin scored an empty-net goal and recorded an assist during Tuesday's 3-1 win over Montreal.

After recording just three helpers without a multi-point outing through his previous six contests, this was a welcomed offensive showing from Seguin. He now has nine goals, 11 assists and 80 shots through 21 games and is well on his way to a fifth consecutive 70-point campaign. Continue to roll with the 25-year-old center confidently in all settings.

Charlie Lindgren Headshot

Lindgren saved 26 of 28 shots during Tuesday's 3-1 loss to Dallas.

After allowing 10 goals through his previous two outings, this was a strong rebound from Lindgren -- and against a formidable offensive attack. Carey Price's (lower body) injury status is still up in the air, but he's currently traveling with the team, so who's announced as Wednesday's starter will be telling. Lindgren sports a .924 save percentage and 2.43 GAA through eight outings and projects to remain a solid asset as long as he's receiving regular starts. His value might be fleeting, though.
