Engelland posted two assists and a plus-3 rating in a 5-2 victory against the Jets on Friday.
The stay-at-home defenseman has never recorded more than 17 points in a season, but he's already at nine through 16 games in 2017-18. His 8.0 percent shooting percentage is bound to drop, but Engelland appears to be on pace for a career-high in points. He's also off to a great start with a plus-9 rating (his previous career-best is plus-10) and a career-high 19:03 minutes per game.

Engelland scored his first goal of the season in a 5-2 win against Arizona on Tuesday.
It was a great moment as the hometown favorite Engelland buried his first goal as a Golden Knight in the team's home opener. He was fed a pass from Brendan Leipsic and drilled a one-timer past Arizona's Antti Raanta. The 35-year-old defenseman also finished the game plus-three, along with a hit and a blocked shot.

Engelland has been selected by the Vegas Golden Knights in the NHL Expansion Draft , Sportsnet's John Shannon reports.
This is an interesting selection because Engelland is due to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. Vegas owner Bill Foley said earlier Wednesday that the Golden Knights selected a pair of pending UFA's in the expansion draft but were yet to sign them. Still, it would appear likely that a deal gets done between Engelland and the first-year franchise. Either way, the veteran defender offers zero fantasy value. He posted just 16 points for Calgary last season and he turned 35 years old in April.

Engelland finished the season with 16 points, one off his career high set back in 2011-12 with the Penguins.
16 points aren't exactly earth-shattering from a fantasy standpoint, but the rearguard provided value in the deepest leagues thanks to his triple-digit shots (107), hits (135) and blocked shots (134). Engelland is no spring chicken at 35, however, so he'll likely be hard-pressed to maintain his level of contribution in the defensive categories in 2017-18.

Engelland scored and tallied three shots in a 4-3 shootout victory over the Penguins on Monday.
The 34-year-old has four goals, and three of them have come since the All-Star break. He is now just two goals and four points shy of tying career bests with 13 contests to go. Engelland is only averaging 18:04 per game, but that's also a career high along with his 98 shots.

Engelland scored the game-winning goal against Florida on Friday.
The veteran defenseman has only marked the scoresheet in five of his past 36 games for two goals and six points, so you cannot rely on him for offensive production in any fantasy setting. In cavernous seasonal leagues, there is some value in his 50 shots, 39 PIM, 48 hits and 55 blocked shots during that 36-game stretch, but Engelland shouldn't be confused with a priority, either. Don't fret leaving him on the waiver wire.

Engelland scored a goal and added an assist during Wednesday's win over Minnesota.
After missing the scoresheet in each of his past eight games, Engelland improved to two goals and 10 points for the campaign with Wednesday's showing. While the veteran defenseman helps out more in the peripheral categories (66 PIM, 85 hits and 84 blocked shots), there still aren't many fantasy settings where he moves the needle enough to warrant a roster spot.

Engelland has played in all 41 games this season, recording seven points and a plus-7 rating.
Engelland has never been known for his offense, topping out at 17 points with the Penguins in 2011-12. He is, however, a steadying veteran presence on the Flames' blue line, as he's racked up 72 hits and 63 blocked shots while averaging 18:10 of ice time this season. The 34-year-old has also amassed 50 PIM this year, which -- combined with the aforementioned hits and blocks -- gives him modest cross-categorical value in the very deepest of leagues.

Engelland registered an assist, two shots on net, four PIM and three hits during Monday's loss to the Islanders.
Engelland is capable of padding the PIM, hits and blocked shots columns, but he rarely finds the scoresheet. Monday's assist was just his fifth point through 25 games this season, after all. He could reward in deep leagues including peripheral statistics, but Engelland's lack of offense keeps his fantasy value limited.

Engelland got unusually involved in the offense Thursday, handing out two assists in a 3-2 win over San Jose.
He also went plus-3, as he was on the ice for all the Flames' goals. The 34-year-old is already a full third of the way to last season's 12 points, but even though he's enjoying a slightly increased role this year, there's not much fantasy relevance to be found here unless you desperately need some hits, blocks and PIM.
