Ron Hainsey D CAR 2 Days

Hainsey recorded his third point of the season - an assist on Elias Lindholm's empty net goal - to help seal a 4-1 win over the Maple Leafs on Friday.

Hainsey's days as a blueliner who can contribute offensively are long gone - the last time he recorded more than 20 points in a season was back in 2009-10 when he posted five goals and 21 helpers for the Jets. These days, the best the 33-year old Hainsey can do is take care of business in his own zone. He does currently rank second on the team in blocked shots with 50, but his plus-minus rating of -9 leaves something to be desired. Bottom line, Hainsey's shortcomings far outweigh his positive attributes. For fantasy purposes, it's best to avoid using him if possible.

Hainsey has just a single assist in 13 games so far this season, but leads the Hurricanes in blocked shots with 25.

Hainsey's offensive game has been on the decline for several years now, having not cracked the 20-point barrier since the 2009-10 season with Winnipeg. However, he still brings a solid defensive game, which makes him much more valuable to the Canes than it does to fantasy owners. Overall, not much fantasy value here, unless you are in a very deep league that counts the "BKS" stat category.
