Eakin scored his third goal of the season and added a helper in Sunday's win over Los Angeles.

EDGE Analysis

The third-line center had gone six straight games with recording a point before getting back on track against the Kings. Eakin was credited with five shots on goal Sunday and brought his point total up to nine on the season. The 26-year-old isn't being used on the power play and has streaky tendencies, but for a depth scorer, he's worth owning in some deep leagues. Eakin has already matched the three goals he scored in 60 games last season with Dallas, so it appears the change of scenery was a good idea.

Eakin scored his second goal of the season during a 2-1 loss to Boston on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

After registering just three assists in his first eight games, Eakin has totaled four points over his last four contests. The 6-foot center has seen significantly less ice time at even strength and during power plays, so the increased scoring may not be sustainable unless he earns some of that time back.

Eakin registered a goal and an assist in Friday's 7-0 rout over the Avalanche in Vegas.

EDGE Analysis

Despite the blowout, Colorado actually did well shutting down Vegas' power-play units, yielding one goal on five man-advantage opportunities. However, the 5-on-5 play from guys like Eakin was incredibly overwhelming for the Avs. This was the Canadian's first multi-point effort of the 2017-18 season, but the Golden Knights have jumped off to a mesmerizing start (8-1-0) and that bodes well for Eakin's chances of keeping it going offensively.

Eakin recorded an even-strength assist in Friday's 2-1 road win over the Stars. He also logged a whopping 22:57 of ice time.

EDGE Analysis

Eakin was the primary distributor on James Neal's second goal. The top-six pivot won't forget about this one, as he was pitted against his former team for the first regular-season contest in the history of the Golden Knights franchise. It's strange to see a forward get that much ice time in a regulation contest, but then again, Vegas wants to prove it can be a competitive team from the start.

Eakin was reportedly selected by the Golden Knights, per Jim Toth of TSN 1290.

EDGE Analysis

After missing the start of the season, Eakin struggled to find his scoring touch as he registered a paltry three goals and nine helpers in 60 outings. No doubt general manager George McPhee will be hoping the center returns to his 2015-16 form in which he garnered 35 points. Even if the 26-year-old can rediscover his game, he likely won't see as much of ice time that he did last year with Dallas -- 16:49 per game.

Eakin was left exposed by the Stars for Wednesday's expansion draft.

EDGE Analysis

After a down year in which he scored just three goals and 12 points through 60 games, the Stars opted not to protect the 26-year-old center. With few centers available to Las Vegas, Eakin could be an alluring draft pick.

After points in three straight games, Eakin was held without a point in Sunday's loss to Boston.

EDGE Analysis

Eakin has struggled producing points since returning from injury. His recent streak was good to see, but there are still concerns with adding him to your roster. He's not seeing power play time and his shot rate is lower than in past years.

Eakin scored the only Dallas goal during Thursday's loss to Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

While Eakin has been limited to just 37 games this season, this was also only his second goal. After a respectable three-year stretch where he averaged 17 goals and 36.6 points per season, Eakin's two tallies and eight points aren't moving the fantasy needle in 2016-17. He is capable of providing an uptick in production over the coming weeks, but he'll always be more of a meat-and-potatoes players than a scorer, so it's best to take a wait-and-see approach.

Eakin potted his first goal of the year, complementing it with an assist and seven PIM in Tuesday's 7-6 win over the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

The 25-year-old winger got to skate with Jamie Benn and Patrick Eaves, and he responded with a Gordie Howe hat trick -- a goal, an assist and a fight. That doubled his 2016-17 point total in one night, as he'd managed just two assists over his prior 23 contests. He's really tormented the Blueshirts, as Eakin ran over Henrik Lundqvist the last time these teams met, and he ran the Swedish netminder out of this game by scoring the Stars' seventh goal late in the second period. Unfortunately for his fantasy owners, the Stars and Rangers don't meet too often.

Eakin (suspension) can return to the lineup against Colorado on Thursday after serving out his four-game ban.

EDGE Analysis

Given the number of injuries in Dallas, Eakin figures to return to the lineup right away. It has been a difficult 2016-17 campaign for the center as he has been on the ice for just 14 games due to injuries and the suspension. Even when he has played, the 25-year-old has not produced at his usual level, recording just one helper, 17 PIM and a minus-7 rating. Unless he can turn it around quickly, it is doubtful Eakin will register a fourth consecutive season with 35+ points.
