Tomas Kopecky RW FLA 5 Hrs

Kopecky posted a minus-3 in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Lightning with one shot on goal in 11:54 of ice time.

Kopecky's minus-3 moved him to minus-20 on the year, worst on the team and in the bottom 20 across the league. Kopecky doesn't see much ice time and posting such a poor plus/minus bodes poorly for his prospects moving forward. The 33-year-old has extremely limited fantasy value unless he goes on a big point streak.

Kopecky took three shots on goal and carried a minus-1 in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Blues.The 33-year-old has never been a big source of points, breaking the 30-point threshold just twice in his career, and is currently sitting on the worst plus-minus of his career at minus-13. Kopecky is not fantasy relevant at this time unless he goes on a major hot streak.

Kopecky added a goal in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Panthers.

It's been a disappointing season for Kopecky as he now has just seven points through 36 games, but notching his second goal of the season and skating full time in three games since returning from the IR suggest he's fully over the upper body injury that had him sidelined. Nevertheless, with just 19 points in the last two seasons combined, the 32-year-old won't be of much value even in deeper formats.

Kopecky (upper body) was activated from IR and will play Thursday against the Canucks, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Kopecky missed the last four games with the injury. The winger is expected to play on the Panthers' checking line Thursday, but don't expect him to bring much value in that capacity. He's managed just one goal and six points over 33 games this season.

Kopecky (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Sunday.

The 32-year-old has sat out the Panthers' last seven games and has missed the requisite seven days already, so he'll be eligible to return from IR at any point. There's reason to believe he could be back as soon as Thursday's game against the Canucks, as he was able to get in a full practice Tuesday, according to George Richards of the Miami Herald.

Kopecky (upper body) remains out of the lineup Friday against the Sabres, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.

Kopecky took part in a conditioning skate Friday morning, but has yet to formally rejoin his healthy teammates for practices. Friday's game will mark the third straight that he's missed due to the injury.

Kopecky will not play in Tuesday's game against the Canadiens, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.

No specific injury has been reported, so Kopecky may be a healthy scratch, or else he will likely just be day-to-day. He may even stand a chance to play in Wednesday's game against the Rangers. Thomas Fleischmann, who has been a healthy scratch the past few games, will slot back into the lineup Tuesday.

Kopecky tallied his first goal of the season in Saturday's win over the Sabres.

Kopecky had been held without a goal for nearly a full calendar year, as his last one had come in a Jan. 4 game against the Predators. The veteran winger has seen his ice time drop by nearly two full minutes in each of the past two seasons and wouldn't seem to offer much upside at this point.

Kopecky was practicing on the top line with Aleksander Barkov and Scottie Upshall Monday, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.

Kopecky has no points in his last four games, and has only registered one assist in the first 12 games of the season. He has found himself playing most of the season as a bottom six forward and with the lack of success, the move to the top line is a little bit puzzling. If Kopecky remains playing on the top line during Tuesday's game against the Sharks, he will need to produce some points or he could easily find himself back in the doghouse.

Kopecky has registered just one point in 10 games this season.

Coming off a dreadful, concussion-plagued campaign that limited him to 12 points over 49 games, the 32-year-old Kopecky is no longer being relied upon as a key contributor for the Panthers. He's filled a bottom-six role for the club all season and figures to be shown the door when he becomes a free agent next summer.
