Zajac picked up two assists in Saturday's win over the Coyotes.

The points were just Zajac's first in six games, giving him 22 points ( 10 goals) in 61 games on the season. While he's playing Michael Cammalleri on the second line, Zajac has been too inconsistent this season to be trusted in most fantasy formats. If you can deal with dry spouts, he's a decent option in very deep leagues.

Zajac scored an empty-net goal in Saturday's 2-0 win over the Blue Jackets.

The 29-year-old has goals in consecutive games to give him a total of 10 on the season. Still, Zajac's 20 points and minus-4 rating over 55 games aren't particularly helpful to fantasy owners, making him only a consideration in very deep leagues.

He's compiled just eight goals and 10 assists over 46 games while attempting a mere 1.39 shots per contest.
