Winnik failed to score a goal for the eighth consecutive game during Tuesday's 3-0 win over Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

Winnik has carved out an important defensive role in his first campaign with the Wild. He's beginning 54.0 percent of his five-on-five shifts in his own zone and is averaging 2:16 per contests killing penalties. Unfortunately it's led to just two goals, five points and 16 shots through 17 games, and it would be surprising if the offense began to pick up. As a result, it's difficult to rely on Winnik in the majority of fantasy settings.

Winnik had five blocks and 1:35 of power play ice time, but did not have a shot on goal in Thursday's win over Chicago.

EDGE Analysis

Winnik is rarely used on special teams, but he could get some time on the power play the next few games with the Wild having several skaters out with injuries.

Winnik's (personal) visa was expedited to allow him to suit up versus Detroit on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Winnik was in camp on a professional tryout before signing a one-year deal Wednesday. With the ink on his contract still drying, the Ontario native needed to quickly establish a work visa in order to be eligible to play. The 32-year-old will join fellow veteran and new addition Matt Cullen on the Wild's fourth line.

Winnik may not be able to resolve his visa issues in time for Thursday's road match with the Red Wings.

EDGE Analysis

There's apparently still hope that he can get cleared, but it's a race against time for the Wild newcomer at this point. Winnik joined training camp with Minnesota and ended up signing a PTO just Wednesday. Prepare alternatives in fantasy in case the winger isn't eligible to play.

Winnik signed one-year deal worth $660,000 with Minnesota on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

The 10-year NHL vet joins his eighth team after winning a spot while playing on a professional tryout contract during training camp. Winnik brings experience, penalty killing ability, and is coming off a 2016-17 campaign that saw him score a career-high 12 goals. From that sense, Minnesota appears to have gotten a great bargain in adding Winnik to their lineup, though from a fantasy standpoint, he won't be much of a factor outside of the deepest of leagues.

Winnik will be in training camp with the Wild on a PTO, as announced by the team Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Listed at 6-foot-2, 206 pounds, Winnik brings size up front, but he'll almost assuredly claim a bottom-six role if he latches on with the Wild following the tryout. The Journeyman played with the Capitals last season and notched 25 points in 72 regular-season games, but he put up goose eggs in the box score over 13 playoff contests, and now has just three assists for his only points over 58 career matches when it matters the most.

Winnik scored a goal with a plus-1 rating, six shots on goal and a minor penalty in Friday's 6-3 loss against the Coyotes.

EDGE Analysis

Winnik has 12 goals this season, and three of them have come against the Coyotes in two outings. He and his fantasy owners wish the Caps played Arizona more, as Winnik really seems to get fired up facing his former organization.

Winnik posted a pair of goals with a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 4-1 win against the Coyotes.

EDGE Analysis

Winnik had managed just one goal over his previous 16 outings, so apparently seeing his former uniform on the other side of the ice fired him up. It was his first two-goal game since Oct. 15, the second outing of the regular season.

Winnik posted a goal, an assist and a plus-2 rating with a minor penalty in Saturday's 6-4 win against the Ducks.

EDGE Analysis

Despite the multi-point effort he still has just seven goals and 10 assists this season. He isn't someone you'll want to rely upon regularly outside of the deepest fantasy pools since he generally sees bottom-six minutes and very little power-play work.

Winnik notched a pair of assists in Thursday's win over the Blues.

EDGE Analysis

He has four points in the last four games, but that's not a run of productivity you can expect to continue. The veteran winger has just 14 points in 35 games this year and generally sees bottom-six minutes with almost no power-play time, after all.
