2/24/2017 Tomas Jurco, Chi, RW
The Chicago Blackhawks have acquired Jurco in a trade with the Detroit Red Wings. Chicago sent a third-round pick in this year's draft to Detroit for the 24-year-old Jurco, who has no points in 16 games with the Red Wings this season.

Analysis: The Blackhawks also reassigned forward Vinnie Hinostroza to the minors on Friday. Hinostroza has six goals and eight assists in 48 games with the Blackhawks. Jurco was selected by Detroit in the second round of the 2011 draft. He has 15 goals and 24 assists in 159 games over four seasons.
2/24/2017 Patrick Eaves, Anh, RW
The Anaheim Ducks have acquired Eaves from the Dallas Stars in exchange for a conditional second-round draft pick.

Analysis: Eaves has 21 goals and 16 assists in 59 games this season for the Stars. His 37 points are already a career-high in his 12 NHL seasons, and he has 11 power-play goals.
2/24/2017 Troy Stecher, Van, D
Stecher is one of a number of Canucks who may be suffering from the mumps.

Analysis: He won't play Saturday against the Sharks, and it's unclear if he'll return Tuesday against the Red Wings.
2/24/2017 Markus Granlund, Van, C
Granlund is one of a number of Canucks who may be suffering from the mumps.

Analysis: He won't play Saturday against the Sharks, and it's unclear if he'll return Tuesday against the Red Wings.
2/24/2017 Matt Calvert, Cls, LW
Calvert is out "week to week" with an oblique strain suffered in Sunday's loss to the Predators.

Analysis: With just nine goals and two assists this season, Calvert has very little fantasy value.
2/24/2017 Anton Khudobin, Bos, G
Khudobin made 27 saves Thursday in his second start since Christmas for the Bruins, who nursed an early lead to their first win in Los Angeles since March 24, 2012.

Analysis: Khudobin was solid in just his ninth start of the season for the Bruins, who have relied heavily on All-Star Tuukka Rask in net. Khudobin isn't going to hold much fantasy value unless the Bruins start using him more.
2/24/2017 David Krejci, Bos, C
Krejci finished with a goal in Thursday's 4-1 win at Los Angeles. It was his 15th on the season.

Analysis: Krejci has totaled four goals and six assists over his last nine games.
2/24/2017 David Pastrnak, Bos, RW
Brad Marchand and Pastrnak scored their 26th goals of the season, and the Bruins improved to 5-1-0 under interim coach Bruce Cassidy with a 4-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night.

Analysis: Pastrnak punctuated a strong all-around game with his seventh power-play goal of the season early in the second period. After a hot four-game stretch, Pastrnak scored for the first time in his last four.
2/24/2017 Brad Marchand, Bos, LW
Marchand and David Pastrnak scored their 26th goals of the season, and the Bruins improved to 5-1-0 under interim coach Bruce Cassidy with a 4-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night.

Analysis: Marchand has been productive with nine goals and seven assists over his last 11 games.
2/24/2017 Pekka Rinne, Nsh, G
Rinne made 20 saves in Thursday's 4-2 win over Colorado.

Analysis: Though he got a win, the performance can't exactly spark a lot of confidence in Rinne's fantasy owners because it came against a league-worst Avalanche team which has scored the fewest goals in the league. Rinne has dreadful numbers in his last five games with a 4.40 GAA and .837 save percentage.
2/24/2017 Roman Josi, Nsh, D
Josi had two more assists Thursday and finished at a plus-2.

Analysis: Josi has recorded at least one point in seven of Nashville's last eight games, totaling four goals and six assists.
2/24/2017 Nick Schmaltz, Chi, C
Schmaltz stayed hot with a goal and an assist in Thursday's 6-3 win over Arizona.

Analysis: Schmaltz has three goals and six assists over his last seven games.
2/24/2017 Ryan Hartman, Chi, LW
Hartman finished with a goal and an assist in Thursday's 6-3 win over Arizona.

Analysis: Hartman has five goals and an assist in nine games this month.
2/24/2017 Radim Vrbata, Ari, RW
Vrbata stayed hot Thursday with a goal in a 6-3 loss to the Blackhawks.

Analysis: Vrbata has two goals and five assists during his seven-game point streak.
2/24/2017 Jakob Chychrun, Ari, D
Chychrun scored again Thursday in a 6-3 loss to Chicago.

Analysis: The defenseman has a goal in each of his last two games after scoring only three times in his previous 44.
2/24/2017 Corey Crawford, Chi, G
Chicago's Corey Crawford made 34 saves in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Coyotes.

Analysis: Crawford is having a solid February with a 6-1-0 record and a 2.71 goals-against average in seven starts.
2/24/2017 Jonathan Toews, Chi, C
Toews added two assists on Thursday to extend his points scoring streak to five games and increase his output to 22 points in his past 13.

Analysis: Toews has totaled six goals and 10 assists over his last nine games.
2/24/2017 Patrick Kane, Chi, RW
Kane scored three goals for his third career hat trick to lead the surging Blackhawks past the Arizona Coyotes 6-3 on Thursday night for their third straight win and eighth in nine games.

Analysis: Kane has 23 goals to lead Chicago, which closed three points behind first-place Minnesota in the Central Division and Western Conference.
2/24/2017 Viktor Arvidsson, Nsh, LW
Arvidsson notched his 19th goal of the season in Thursday's home win over the Avs.

Analysis: Arvidsson has scored eight goals in his last nine home games. He only has one in his last 10 road contests.
2/24/2017 Gabriel Landeskog, Col, LW
Landeskog's struggles continued Thursday as he failed to record a point and finished at a minus-1 in a loss at Nashville.

Analysis: Landeskog has no points in his last five games, remaining stuck on 23 a season after he was second on the team with 53.
