Rozsival recorded an assist on the Blackhawks' lone tally in Thursday's loss to the Blues.

An inconsistent lineup spot coupled with a lack of offensive ability have prevented Rozsival from delivering much fantasy utility this season. In 64 games, the aging blueliner has 12 points, 103 hits, 22 PIM, and a minus-1 rating.

Rozsival dished out two assists and finished with a plus-3 rating in Monday's 5-2 win over the Hurricanes.

Rozsival had been a healthy scratch each of the last two contests, which apparently motivated him enough to turn in his first multi-point effort of the season in his first game back in the lineup. While it was likely his best night of the season, the 36-year-old has just 10 points through 43 games, so his fantasy value is restricted to the deepest of formats.

Rozsival will give way to Tim Erixon for the second straight night, as coach Joel Quenneville sticks with the lineup that came away with an impressive 3-0 victory over the Panthers on Thursday. Even when he's been a regular skater this season, Rozsival hasn't provided much in the way of fantasy value, as his eight points and 18 PIM would illustrate.

Rozsival registered a secondary assist on Brandon Saad's overtime game-winner and went plus-2 in Friday's triumph over the Jets.

As a stay-at-home defender, it shouldn't surprise that Roszival has only attempted one shot over his last five games. Friday's assist gave Roszival just his second point in the last month, and he's still sitting on one goal for the season.
