Scottie Upshall RW FLA 7 Days

Upshall found the back of the net for his eighth goal of the season in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Red Wings.

After being scratched last week, it's good to see Upshall score his first goal since Feb. 28. Upshall's presence on the fourth line and limited ice time makes him a risky fantasy play as he doesn't pick up penalty minutes nor does he take a lot of shots, making his value tied directly to his scoring. After a career-high 37 points last season, Upshall has just 15 this season, which falls more in line with his totals from earlier in his career. He has limited fantasy value barring a hot streak.
