Alex Goligoski D DAL 1 week ago

Goligoski racked up two assists in Saturday's win over Chicago.

Goligoski now has seven points in eight games after producing just three points in his previous 19 games. The 29-year-old, who sees second-unit power-play time, is now up to 33 points in 72 games on the season. While he may be inconsistent, Goligoski has established himself as a minute-munching defenseman who can contribute 30-40 points each season.

Goligoski missed Wednesday's practice due to an illness.

The Stars don't seem to be overly concerned with Goligoski's absence, as he's still expected to play Thursday against the Penguins. His availability for the contest should be confirmed following Thursday's morning skate.

Goligoski scored a goal, added an assist, went plus-2, picked up two PIM and laid two hits in Thursday's road win over the Hurricanes.

Goli's warmed to the task of late, with four points over his last four, but he'd need to get white-hot to even challenge last year's total of 42 points. Still, he's been a productive fourth defenseman for fantasy purposes.

Goligoski netted his third goal of the season and picked up two PIM in Thursday's shootout win over the Panthers.

Goligoski's marker tied the game at three apiece with 12:21 remaining in the third period, before the Stars ultimately prevailed in the third round of the shootout. The Stars will be counting on Goligoski to raise is offensive game with 16-goal blueliner Trevor Daley scheduled to miss the next 2-to-4 weeks, but it's unclear if the 29-year-old has another gear in him. After tallying a career-best 42 points in 2013-14, Goligoski has seen his scoring regress a bit this season, mustering three goals and 24 assists over 65 games.

Goligoski had an assist and 28:24 of ice time in Wednesday's win over Boston.Goligoski is putting up assists at the exact same rate as last season when he set a career-high in assists and points. The goals are lagging behind a bit though. He has only two on the season. That drop is part and parcel with the drop in shots this season. He averaged 1.74 shots per game last season and is down to 1.31 this season. That's a significant drop off for a player whose career shooting percentage is 6.4%, a number he has been below the last three seasons.

Goligoski finally scored his second goal of the season Thursday, and he tacked on an assist, a plus-1 rating and two PIM in a 5-3 loss to Dallas.

Can't pin this one on Goli, that's for sure. He'd gone without a point in five straight, so this was a much-needed performance that solidifies his status as a solid mid-tier defenseman for fantasy purposes.

Goligoski finished with two assists and a plus-3 rating in 22:01 of ice time in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Blackhawks.

Goligoski has racked up 22 assists on the season which slots in among the league leaders among defensemen. Despite the high totals, the 29-year-old's production has largely come in bunches as his last 18 contests have either ended with multi-point efforts (five times in that span) or off the scoresheet entirely.

Goligoski dished out a pair of helpers -- one on the power play -- and blocked five shots in Tuesday's win over Ottawa.

A strong effort from Goli, who'd gone without a point over his prior three outings. While he now has 21 points on the year (20 of them assists), offensive production has come only in fits and starts for the veteran blueliner lately. Over the last 15 games, he's only been on the scoresheet four times, but he's totaled eight assists in those four games, so he's maintained a deceptively solid scoring average despite his painful inconsistency.

Goligoski was excellent Sunday, picking up two assists, dishing out four hits, blocking three shots, and recording a plus-3 rating in a loss to Chicago.

Goligoski has been playing very well of late, recording four assists and a plus-8 rating over his past three games. The 29-year-old now has 19 points (one goal) in 38 games on the season, to go with a plus-9 rating. While Goligoski has been inconsistent throughout the year, the Stars are 9-1-1 in their past 11 games, making the first pairing defenseman an appealing fantasy option. Although Goligoski's power-play time has been significantly reduced, he could still reach the 40-point barrier in 2014-15.
