Ramblings: Updates on Palat, Schenn, Boeser; Malkin; Zuccarello; Assist Rates – November 9

Michael Clifford



There is a lot, and I mean a lot, to get to so let’s not waste time. 


Tampa Bay, and fantasy owners, will be without the services of Ondrej Palat for about a month as an update was given on his lower-body injury. The second line is humming along just fine without him but it does hit their thin LW depth.


Evgeni Malkin will not face any supplemental discipline for the incident with TJ Oshie Wednesday night.


The New York Rangers said that Mats Zuccarello is considered day-to-day with a groin strain. We’ll see if it’s day to day because some Ondrej Palat owners likely thought the same thing and now he’ll miss about six weeks total.

Brett Howden was back on the ice for New York, though, so there’s some silver lining here.


A quick update on Brock Boeser:



Not great.


Some news from the Blues.

  • Brayden Schenn is questionable for their next game.
  • Patrick Maroon will be a healthy scratch.
  • Robert Thomas is expected to play their next game. That would be his 10th and a good indication he’ll be around the rest of the year.


Normally when it’s my night to do Ramblings I like to go game by game to review the significant fantasy performances. Thursday night was, in a word, insane. I’m going to have to just go through the major performances on a macro level rather than game by game.
