Vermette stretched his point streak to three games and four points, including two goals, with a goal and assist in Saturday's loss to Minnesota.

Very quietly, Vermette has put up eight points, including four goals, in his last 10 games. He doesn't get as much love as he deserves in fantasy leagues, so he might just be out there on the wire. It's worth checking.

Vermette scored on the power play Thursday in a loss to Nashville. He was minus-1, took six shots, and had two PIM and a blocked shot.

Vermette is playing well right now with six points in his past eight games while the Coyotes are floundering as a team. Vermette, a free agent at the end of the season, could be a trade target if the Coyotes are still outside the playoff picture. He has 19 points and minus-8 rating in 29 games on the season while providing strong defense and faceoff skills.

Vermette scored his sixth goal and added an assist Tuesday in a loss to Colorado. He took three shots and had two hits.

Vermette picked up a power-play goal and an even-strength assist, but finished minus-1 in Thursday's loss to the Flames.

Not a sexy choice on draft day, Vermette nonetheless has been putting up fantasy-relevant numbers, with a dozen points (half on the power play) in 16 games. He's better used in deeper leagues, but he definitely has value. And if your league counts faceoff wins, he's an ace.

Vermette is coming off his best offensive season (45 points) in five years and has picked up where he left off with nine points through 12 games. He is in a more offensive role for Arizona while also maintaining his dominance in the face off circle typically responsible defensive play.

Vermette picked up a goal and two assists in Sunday's win over the Capitals.

The goal and one of the assists came on the power play, where he's picked up five of his seven points this year. He should be able to approach, if not exceed, last season's bounce back year in which he produced 45 points.

Vermette netted a goal and an assist -- both on the power play -- in Saturday's overtime win over Los Angeles.

Vermette, who scored 24 goals last season, will likely have another productive season in 2014-15 as Arizona's first-line center. While he likely won't recreate the success of his 65-point season with Columbus five years ago, there is no reason Vermette can't hit 50 points this season.

Vermette (undisclosed) will serve as the Coyotes' top-line center in Thursday's opener against the Jets, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

Vermette was able to shake off a nagging injury late in training camp in time for the start of his 13th NHL season. While not a prolific scorer relative to most of the league's top centers, Vermette's two-way contributions make him an important cog in Arizona's machine.

Vermette could sit out of Friday's preseason game while he tends to an undisclosed nagging injury, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

The injury is considered minor and shouldn't put Vermette's chances of suiting up for the regular-season opener in peril. The 32-year-old will return to Arizona this season to center Mikkel Boedker and Shane Doan on the top line, but he won't provide the point production of some of the league's elite middle men. He does carry more value in specialty formats, however, where his prowess on the faceoff may be better rewarded.
