Cole Caufield will get another chance to make a run at the Calder Trophy, as was recalled from the AHL on Thursday. Caufield made the most of his time there, scoring two goals and adding three assists in six AHL games. If he was dropped in your single-season league, he is definitely worth a speculative pickup, particularly in deeper leagues. The Habs have now lost four games in a row and look like a complete disaster at the moment, so their current woes may cut into Caufield's production (just one point in 11 games) if you're using last season's playoff run as a baseline.

Making his second consecutive start, Cayden Primeau was chased from the net after allowing five goals in two periods. How soon can Carey Price return to game action? He has at least returned to the ice this week. Since Jake Allen is also sidelined, the Habs will run a Primeau/Sam Montembeault combination for now. You'd be best to avoid that.

The Penguins' scoring star in their 6-0 win over Montreal was Teddy Blueger, who filled the statsheet with two goals, an assist, a plus-4, and five shots. Blueger managed to make it work with Zach Aston-Reese and Brock McGinn. Blueger and McGinn have been joined at the hip for much of the season as linemates, which may limit the offense that either is capable of.

Sidney Crosby scored his first goal of the season in his fourth game, while Tristan Jarry recorded his first shutout of the season in his 13th game. Jarry has quality starts in four of his last five games.

Oliver Kylington is showing at the top of the popular Frozen Tools search results because he keeps piling up the points. With an assist on Thursday, Kylington now has points in 11 of his last 12 games. The incredible part is that he's doing it with little to no power-play time! Unless he finds a way to sneak onto
