Alex Goligoski D DAL 14 Days

Goligoski had an assist and 28:24 of ice time in Wednesday's win over Boston.Goligoski is putting up assists at the exact same rate as last season when he set a career-high in assists and points. The goals are lagging behind a bit though. He has only two on the season. That drop is part and parcel with the drop in shots this season. He averaged 1.74 shots per game last season and is down to 1.31 this season. That's a significant drop off for a player whose career shooting percentage is 6.4%, a number he has been below the last three seasons.

Goligoski finally scored his second goal of the season Thursday, and he tacked on an assist, a plus-1 rating and two PIM in a 5-3 loss to Dallas.

Can't pin this one on Goli, that's for sure. He'd gone without a point in five straight, so this was a much-needed performance that solidifies his status as a solid mid-tier defenseman for fantasy purposes.

Goligoski finished with two assists and a plus-3 rating in 22:01 of ice time in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Blackhawks.

Goligoski has racked up 22 assists on the season which slots in among the league leaders among defensemen. Despite the high totals, the 29-year-old's production has largely come in bunches as his last 18 contests have either ended with multi-point efforts (five times in that span) or off the scoresheet entirely.

Goligoski dished out a pair of helpers -- one on the power play -- and blocked five shots in Tuesday's win over Ottawa.

A strong effort from Goli, who'd gone without a point over his prior three outings. While he now has 21 points on the year (20 of them assists), offensive production has come only in fits and starts for the veteran blueliner lately. Over the last 15 games, he's only been on the scoresheet four times, but he's totaled eight assists in those four games, so he's maintained a deceptively solid scoring average despite his painful inconsistency.

Goligoski was excellent Sunday, picking up two assists, dishing out four hits, blocking three shots, and recording a plus-3 rating in a loss to Chicago.

Goligoski has been playing very well of late, recording four assists and a plus-8 rating over his past three games. The 29-year-old now has 19 points (one goal) in 38 games on the season, to go with a plus-9 rating. While Goligoski has been inconsistent throughout the year, the Stars are 9-1-1 in their past 11 games, making the first pairing defenseman an appealing fantasy option. Although Goligoski's power-play time has been significantly reduced, he could still reach the 40-point barrier in 2014-15.

Goligoski finished with a plus-3 rating over his 23:05 of ice time Wednesday, collecting two assists along the way.

Goligoski has been playing through a lower-body injury for the last several weeks, and while it has yet to result in any missed games, it might bear some responsibility for the blueliner's disappointing play this season. While Wednesday's two-point showing was nice, he has just one goal on the campaign and had only compiled two measly assists over his previous eight contests.

Goligoski dished out a pair of assists in Sunday's 6-5 win over the Oilers.

Goligoski had gone four consecutive without a point and now has 15 points through 32 games. The 29-year-old likely won't match his career-best output of 42 points from last season, but he should surpass the 30-point barrier.

Goligoski was absent from practice for the second straight day Thursday, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports.

Goligoski's day off Wednesday was attributed to maintenance purposes, but it seems he could still be bothered by the lower-body injury that he sustained earlier this month. The Stars haven't indicated as much, but Goligoski is certainly worth keeping a close eye on heading into Saturday's tilt with the Devils.
