Antoine Vermette C PHO 8 Days

Vermette scored his eleventh goal on the power play Saturday in a loss to the Wild. He was minus-1, took one shot and blocked one shot in the contest.

Vermette is leading the Coyotes in scoring this season with 29 points, including 12 points on the power play, but with a minus-15 rating. He is among the league leaders in face-off winning percentage. If the Coyotes decided to make some moves for the future before the trade deadline Vermette is likely to be a target for some teams, which could put him in a better lineup and help his numbers down the stretch.

Vermette contributed a pair of assists -- one on the power play -- to Thursday's 4-1 win over Winnipeg.

The Coyotes' leading point-getter, Vermette had been held off the scoreboard in three straight games and seven of the last nine coming in. That's prety much the way this season's gone for the 'Yotes. Even with the nice stat line, Vermette has taken exactly one shot on goal (which came Thursday) in the last four games.

Vermette (face) was a participant in Wednesday's practice, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

Vermette was sporting a fat lip and required about six or seven stitches to seal up a few gashes, but aside from the cosmetic damage, he looks like he'll be good to go for the Coyotes' next game Thursday versus the Jets.

Vermette wasn't able to finish Tuesday's game against the Blues after requiring stitches on two different occasions, the Associated Press reports.

The center required stitches near his nose and mouth area, but it sounds like the case where he just ran out of time to get back in the game after receiving medical attention. The expectation is that he'll be good to go for Thursday's game against the Jets, but we'll await confirmation on his availability.

Vermette potted a pair of goals and added an assist in Monday's 4-2 win over the visiting Flyers.

Vermette was originally on the scoresheet with a hat trick in this one, but his would-be third goal was eventually changed to Shane Doan. Vermette is up to 25 points in 36 games this season and even with an underwhelming supporting cast, the 32-year-old should be able to crack the 50-point barrier for the third time in his 11-year career.

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 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.
