Dobber’s latest over at Puck Daddy – check it out here.

 

Daniel Sedin is out tonight for the Canucks with back spasms. Pavol Demitra is en route to Los Angeles and may suit up in his place.

 

Allan Walsh, the always-interesting agent for Jaroslav Halak, tweeted this earlier, “Just wanted to be the 1st one to announce that Jaroslav Halak has signed a new 6 yr contract with the Montreal Canadiens.” I was about to come and post it here before I checked the calendar. Good one, Mr. Walsh.


Ryan Classic has put together a very in-depth analysis of Erik Karlsson’s fantastic rookie season. Check it out here.

 

Brady Irwin is making his NHL debut tonight for the Leafs. The hometown boy scored 15 goals at the University of Vermont this past season.

Baseball season is almost upon us – time to pop over to DobberBaseball, pick up the fantasy guide, and join the forums!

 

Got a fantasy question on your mind? I'll be answering questions all day today over on the message boards. Ask away here!

 

Ryane Clowe left the game last night with an undisclosed injury. I'll update later on today.

 

San Jose is 7-7-1 since the Olympic break – Nabokov has looked very pedestrian, as has Joe Thornton.

 

Steve Ott had quite the night for Dallas last night, recording his first career hat trick. He scored one goal shorthanded, one at even strength, and one with the man advantage.

 

Alex Burrows has 25 goals in his last 35 games (a 59 goal pace).

 

Antti Niemi shut out the Wild last night after playing the night before. It was only the second time all season that Niemi has started back-to-back games for Chicago. Even though Cristobal Huet essentially gift wrapped the starting position for him, he needs to get on a roll here to get some confidence going for the playoffs.

 

Ben Eager and Tomas Kopecky combined for five points, while Kane and Toews combined for one. Just one of those nights, I guess.

 

Steve Downie and Steve Stamkos both scored goals for Tampa Bay last night. Look for at least one of them to be on the 2009-10 Prime Cuts roster, set to be unveiled very shortly.

 

Jason Blake had a five point night for the Ducks last night. He scored a goal in the process, bumping his shooting percentage close to 0.08.
