Henrik Lundqvist Headshot

Lundqvist saved 33 of 35 shots during Friday's 4-2 win over Los Angeles.

The veteran has now won 13 of his past 17 starts and sports a .917 save percentage and 2.68 GAA for the campaign. His underwhelming start to the season is now a distant memory, and while his ratios are likely to remain more serviceable than helpful, the wins are money. Lundqvist's current form makes him a strong option in the majority of matchups until proven otherwise.

Jonathan Quick Headshot

Quick saved 24 of 27 shots during Friday's 4-2 loss to the Rangers.

This was the second consecutive loss and underwhelming showing from the veteran netminder. Quick still owns a rock-solid 15-10-1 record, .924 save percentage and 2.33 GAA for the campaign, but it's not out of the question to suggest he and the Kings are slightly overachieving currently. It's likely Darcy Kuemper slots in for Saturday's road game against the Islanders, which positions Quick to return to action against the Flyers at the Wells Fargo Center on Monday.
1:53 am (EST)
Jussi Jokinen Headshot

Jokinen collected two assists, two PIM and a plus-2 rating during Friday's 4-2 loss to the Rangers.

After being a healthy scratch for Tuesday's loss to New Jersey, it was encouraging to see Jokinen respond with a multi-point showing against the Rangers on Friday. The veteran Finn has registered just a single goal and four assists through 14 games since joining the Kings, and he's clearly not locked into the lineup. Although, Friday's strong game likely extended his leash. While Jokinen is currently off the fantasy radar in the majority of settings, he shouldn't be completely ignored because he has the potential to climb the depth chart and has a track record of success.
1:35 am (EST)
Marian Gaborik Headshot

Gaborik recorded a goal and an assist during Friday's 4-2 loss to the Rangers. It was his 1,000 career game.

It's been a historic stretch for the Czech. He scored his 400th career goal last Tuesday, and he's now reached the 1,000-game milestone. If injuries hadn't taken their toll throughout his career, it would be interesting to see the heights Gaborik's numbers could have reached. As it stands, he's probably best viewed as a fringe fantasy asset in most settings. Owners will definitely want to keep tabs, though, as the veteran has collected five goals and three helpers through 11 games since returning from injury.
1:28 am (EST)
Cory Schneider Headshot

Schneider saved 28 of 30 shots he faced during Friday's 5-2 win over Dallas.

This was a daunting schedule spot for Schneider after losing to Montreal in overtime Thursday. Rarely do goalies start both games in a back-to-back set, but Schneider stopped 62 of 66 shots he faced through the two outings to improve him to a 13-6-4 record, .921 save percentage and 2.58 GAA for the campaign. Schneider's locked in as a strong option in the majority of matchups moving forward.
1:22 am (EST)
Kari Lehtonen Headshot

Lehtonen saved just 21 of 25 shots during Friday's 5-2 loss to New Jersey.

The veteran Finn entered with a .930 save percentage and 1.94 GAA through his previous five outings, and with Taylor Hall (knee) out of action, this was a ripe spot for another solid showing. Unfortunately for those who extended their confidence with Lehtonen, he posted a stinker. Ben Bishop is starting against the Flyers on Saturday, and he should return to more of a workhorse role over the coming weeks.
1:15 am (EST)
Henrik Sedin Headshot

Sedin posted three assists, including two on the power play, during a 4-3 overtime victory against the Sharks on Friday night.

Sedin and his twin brother both had three assists on the same three goals during the victory. This was Sedin's second three-assist night since Nov. 30, and although he hasn't scored in more than a month, Sedin has 15 points in the last 13 games (all assists). That makes him particularly useful in leagues where assists are their own category.
1:11 am (EST)
Brian Gibbons Headshot

Gibbons recorded two assists during Friday's 5-2 win over Dallas.

With the multi-point showing, the diminutive winger is up to 12 goals and eight assists through 32 games for the campaign. He's been a solid scorer in the lower levels and appears to have found his niche with the Devils. Still, Gibbons' 27.9 shooting percentage is unsustainable, so his contributions to the goal column will likely begin to slow down.
1:10 am (EST)
Daniel Sedin Headshot

Sedin posted three assists, including two on the power play, and six shots on goal during a 4-3 overtime victory against the Sharks on Friday.

The Sedin brothers each had assists on the first three Canucks goals on Friday, involving themselves on every score the team had except the overtime game-winner. This was his first multi-point night since Nov. 30, but Sedin does have a goal and nine points in the last eight games. Sedin isn't a threat to score 30 goals anymore, but as Friday indicated, he still racks up plenty of assists and power-play points to contribute to fantasy lineups.
1:07 am (EST)
Brent Burns Headshot

Burns tallied another two-goal night in a 4-3 loss against the Canucks on Friday.

The reigning Norris Trophy winner experienced a miserable start to the season, but he has scored points in nine of the last 12 games. Burns didn't score his first goal of the season until Nov. 24, but he has six goals in the last 11 games, including two two-goal games within the last week. He might have started too slowly to repeat his 29 goals and 76 points from last season, but Burns is officially out of his slump, and his fantasy owners can count upon regular production from his moving forward.
