Hamhuis notched three goals and 21 assists while also blocking 113 shots in 2017-18.

EDGE Analysis

After missing the 20-point plateau for back-to-back seasons, Hamhuis was able to tap back into his offensive ability in his second season in Dallas, and 24 tallies was also his highest point total since 2012-13. What's impressive is only two points came on the power play, and he finished third on the team for points by a defensemen even without a strong presence on the man advantage. Although Hamhuis will now enter free agency at 34 years old, after his strong performance in 2017-18, he should be able to find a suitor and lace up the skates next year.

Hamhuis became the 318th player in NHL history to reach the 1,000 regular-season games played mark.

EDGE Analysis

Hamhuis is the 106th defenseman to accomplish the daunting feat. The aging defenseman continues to rebound from a sub-par 2016-17 season -- he is on pace to surpass his point total from last year (16) and is carrying a positive plus/minus ratio (4) for the first time in his last two campaigns. However, Hamhuis isn't producing consistently enough to be considered outside the deepest of leagues.

Hamhuis (face) will return to Sunday's game against the Sharks, Mike Heika of The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hamhuis briefly left Sunday's game after taking a stick to the face, but apparently the injury wasn't severe enough to hold him off the ice for the remainder of the contest.

Hamhuis was forced out of Sunday's game against the Sharks after getting hit in the face with a stick in the second period, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Surprisingly, the Sharks weren't whistled for a penalty despite the incident taking place away from the play. This game is currently at second intermission, but since various reports have indicated that Hamhuis looks like he's in a lot of pain, this is probably the last we'll see of him in 2017. The veteran skated for 14:47 of ice time with a plus-1 rating before departing.

Hamhuis collected two helpers and blocked five shots in Thursday's win over Chicago.

EDGE Analysis

Hamhuis isn't known for his offense, but his heavy ice time has led to some production of late. The 35-year-old has just 11 points (one goal) in 34 games this season and isn't of much use in most fantasy formats. His defensive contribution may aid fantasy goers in very deep leagues, but don't expect this recent trend of offensive production to become a regular occurrence.

Hamhuis grabbed an assist in the Stars' win over Vegas on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Hamhuis hadn't put up a point in seven games and had just one assist over the last 13 contests. Unfortunately, it's hard to bank on his fantasy production. He is getting ice time, but has just three shots over the last six games and is averaging less than a shot per game on the season.

Hamhuis recorded a minus-3 rating and received seven PIM during Thursday's 6-1 loss to Tampa Bay.

EDGE Analysis

While the PIM help in some settings, this checks out as another underwhelming showing from Hamhuis. The veteran is struggling to move the fantasy needle with just six points, 12 shots and an average of only 18:46 of ice time per contest. Additionally, his minus-8 rating is a category crippler. There aren't many settings where he should be turned to.

Hamhuis netted the game-winning goal and added an assist in Tuesday's win over the Coyotes.

EDGE Analysis

Hamhuis skated 19:44 in the victory and was credited with three hits. The veteran blueliner was held without a point through his first three games of the season, but got involved in the offense Tuesday. He's very reliable as a defenseman for Dallas, but his offensive upside remains quite low. He only managed 16 points in 2016-17 and is more known for his play in his own end of the rink. He'll chip in up front occasionally, but Hamhuis should be avoided from a fantasy perspective in anything but the deepest of leagues.

Hamhuis (groin) will return to game action Saturday, as the Stars welcome the Avalanche to American Airlines Center, NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Stars went 1-1-0 in the two games that Hamhuis missed. He's a steady shot blocker (172 of those over the last two seasons) but the veteran doesn't consistently clear the 20-minute mark like he had in his prime with the Canucks. Still, he's available if you need him Saturday.

Hamhuis (groin) will not return to the lineup against the Predators on Thursday, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hamhuis will miss his second consecutive outing as coach Ken Hitchcock plans to utilize the same lineup that he did Tuesday. The blueliner logged a mere 13:38 of ice time versus the Blues on Oct. 7, before exiting the contest. Julius Honka will continue to deputize in Hamhuis's stead.
