Goligoski scored a goal in a 6-0 victory over the Blues on Saturday night.

EDGE Analysis

The score moves Goligoski two goals within the career-high he posted in 2010-11. He's managed to accomplish that behind a career-best 10.4 shooting percentage. His 35 points are right in line with where he's been the last few years with the Coyotes and Stars, but Goligoski is killing owners with a minus-27 rating. The poor plus/minus combined with a shooting percentage nearly 6.0 percent higher than his career norm (4.8 percent) doesn't make Golisgoski an attractive fantasy asset for next season.

Goligoski put two goals on the board -- including a pair of power-play tallies -- in Thursday's 6-5 loss to the Hurricanes.

EDGE Analysis

The American defenseman has been averaging over 23 minutes per game with a secure spot on the secondary power-play unit. Goligoski is one of three Coyotes whos contract could last all the way through the 2020-21 campaign before hitting unrestricted free-agent status, and he's proven that he can be an offensive force for a young team in a competitive Pacific Division.

Goligoski (personal) will return after a three-game absence for Sunday's tilt against Vancouver, Craig Morgan of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Goligoski missed three games to be with his family for the birth of his second child. The 32-year-old blueliner has just one point in his last seven games played, but has already posted his fifth straight 30-point season. Goligoski will look to use Arizona's upcoming five-game homestand as a momentum boost in his return.

Goligoski (personal) continues to be away from the team as he awaits the birth of his second child, Rick Sadowski of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Goligoski can thus be ruled out for Saturday's matchup against the Avalanche. With the team returning home to Phoenix for the second half of its back-to-back set Sunday against the Canucks, it's possible the blueliner will be ready to rejoin the lineup then. Even if he's not back Sunday, it's unlikely the Coyotes' second-most productive defenseman will be out much longer.

Goligoski (personal) will not make the flight to Edmonton as he is expecting the birth of his child, Craig Morgan of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Goligoski will be ruled out for Monday, but there is not a timetable for his return yet. The 32-year-old defenseman has nine goals and 30 points on the season. He should return either Wednesday against the Canucks or Saturday against Colorado.

Goligoski recorded a goal and an assist during Monday's 6-1 win over Chicago.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran defenseman now sports a four-game point streak consisting of two goals and four assists. The surge has Goligoski in line to cruise past the 35-point threshold for a fifth consecutive season, and he's also continued to provide respectable peripheral contributions with 81 shots, 20 PIM, 94 hits and 90 blocked shots. Unfortunately, in settings including plus-minus rating, Goligoski's minus-22 mark is a crippler.

Goligoski (illness) is back to 100 percent following the NHL All-Star break, Craig Morgan of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Goligoski missed Thursday's clash with Columbus due to illness, but should be back in the lineup to face Dallas on Feb. 1. The Grand Rapids native has been bogged down in a bit of a slump of late, as he has just one point in his previous seven outings, along with 13 shots on goal, 17 blocks and seven hits. Who gets relegated to the press box Thursday likely depends on Jason Demers's (upper body) status.

Goligoski (illness) won't play Thursday against Columbus, Craig Morgan of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Goligoski will likely only miss one contest due to his illness, as the Coyotes don't play again until next Thursday against the Stars due to the upcoming all-star break. With Goligoski under the weather, Kevin Connauton will draw into the lineup against the Blue Jackets.

Goligoski found the back of the net in a 5-4 loss to San Jose on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

The 32-year-old was able to rifle home the puck off a face-off win, notching his first goal of 2018. In his second season in the desert Goligoski is up to 22 points (five goals, 17 assists) in 45 games, and is well on his way to hit the 35-point plateau for the fifth straight year. Further, since Goligoski is averaging 23:07 of ice time on the top unit and 1:46 of power-play time per game, he'll have plenty of offensive opportunities to keep up his current point-per-game pace.

Goligoski collected an assist, two shots and two hits through 22:09 of ice time (2:07 on the power play) during Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Florida.

EDGE Analysis

At this stage of Goligoski's career, fantasy owners know what they're getting, and this season has been more of the same. The Grand Rapids, MN native has collected 15 points, 52 shots, 16 PIM, 60 hits and 60 blocked shots to provide a well-rounded statistical return, with the only blemish being his minus-14 rating. He's well on his way to a fifth consecutive 30-point showing, so if the plus-minus column improves, so will his value.
