Hudler collected his first goal and assist of the playoffs -- both on the power play -- Tuesday in Game 4 against Vancouver.

He'd been held off the scoresheet -- and taken just three shots -- in the first three games of the series after racking up 76 points in the regular season, but Hudler finally found his offensive stride in this one. Now that he's broken the seal and the Flames -- up 3-1 in the series -- are poised to play a lot more games, Hudler makes for a fine fantasy play in daily formats.

Hudler (rest) is expected to be held out of Saturday's game against the Jets, Sportsnet's Nick Kypreos reports.

The Flames punched their playoff ticket with a win over the Kings on Thursday, which will give coach Bob Hartley the opportunity to rest several key regulars for a meaningless season finale. Hudler turned in a career-best year to drive the Flames to the playoffs, generating 31 goals, 76 points, and a plus-17 rating over 78 games.

Hudler scored his 30th goal of the season Thursday, and it held up as the game-winner in the playoff-clinching victory. He added an empty-netter to boot.

Appropriate that Hudler would be the one to get the goal that sent the Flames on, as his breakout to elite status this season has been one of the most powerful driving forces in Calgary's run to the playoffs. He remains white-hot, with 16 points and a plus-9 rating over his last 11 contests.

Hudler tallied an assist Thursday in a 4-1 loss to St. Louis.

Hudler had a ridiculous month of March, with 10 goals and 13 assists in 15 games. It appears he's still rolling in April, so keep him in your starting lineup.

Hudler scored again and chipped in an assist in Monday's 5-3 win over Dallas. He also skated to a plus-3.

Hudler's prolific scoring pace continues, as he now has five points in two games against being held scoreless (in rare fashion) against Minnesota last Friday. He's up to 29 goals and 42 assist for 71 points (!) this season, and has been an unexpected fantasy monster for the Flames in 2014-15.

Hudler scored his 28th goal of the season and added an assist in Sunday's win over the Flames.

Hudler continues to roll, piling up nine goals and 21 points in his last 14 games. He's a man on a mission and is now sitting ninth in the NHL scoring race. The 31-year-old is a huge reason why the Flames are currently occupying a playoff spot and has become a must-start every game.

Hudler tallied a goal and assist in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.

The top line of Hudler, Sean Monahan, and Johnny Gaudreau were the whole of the Calgary offense Saturday, as the trio had a hand in both of the team's goals. The veteran Hudler has quietly been the most productive member of the line this season, ranking ahead of both Monahan and Gaudreau in points (64) and plus/minus (plus-9). The point total already represents a career best for Hudler, who will have a legitimate shot at reaching the 70-point plateau with 10 games still remaining on the Flames' schedule.

Hudler dished out an assist at even strength and other on the power play Thursday in a 4-1 win over Philadelphia.

He'd been held off the scoresheet twice in a row, but you can't keep Hudler down too long this year, as he continues to build on his career-high point total -- now at 62. Just put him in your lineup and let him roll.

Hudler put up another three points Friday -- a goal and two assists -- in a 6-3 win over the visiting Leafs.

That's 12 points in the last six games for Hudler -- all but one of which have been multi-point efforts. He now has 60 points in 65 games (which leads the Flames and is also a new career high) and is emerging before our eyes as an elite fantasy option on an equally-surprising Calgary squad. He'll cool off, but he's shown all year that he's the real deal and can safely be relied upon for solid production in the final month of the season.

Hudler recorded his fourth straight multi-point game Sunday, collecting two assists in a loss to Ottawa.

Hudler's been red-hot of late and is now up to 56 points in 63 games on the season. Considering six of his last 11 outings have been multi-point efforts, the 31-year-old should be an automatic roll right now.
