Shattenkirk assisted on a Michael Grabner goal in a shootout win over Vancouver on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

It was the first points in six contests for the blueliner, who logged a season-high 25:30 in the victory. While Shattenkirk did go through a bit of an offensive slump, he was putting plenty of pucks on net and you knew it wouldn't last long. The 28-year-old has been excellent through 24 games this season, managing 18 points and 24 PIM. With the Rangers hitting their stride, the power-play quarterback needs to be in your lineup every game.

Shattenkirk finished with a power-play assist in Saturday's 4-2 win against the Oilers.

EDGE Analysis

The 27-year-old has been everything the Rangers hoped for when they inked him to a four-year, $26.6 million deal over the summer as he has 10 points in his last seven games and 17 overall. Only a minus-5 rating blemishes his performance this campaign, but his offensive prowess more than makes up, so make sure he's a fixture in your lineup.

Shattenkirk had a power-play goal and added a helper with the man advantage in a 5-3 win over Columbus on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Shattenkirk just finds a way to produce for his fantasy owners when he's on the ice, and Monday was no exception. He sparked the Rangers to a come-from-behind win and now has 15 points on the season, making him a perfect fit in the lineup in all leagues.

Shattenkirk's two goals Saturday in an overtime win over Florida push him into fourth in the NHL in scoring from the blue line.

EDGE Analysis

Shattenkirk isn't a top pairing defender -- his own zone game just doesn't cut it. But he's a fantasy beast who is among the league leaders in goals from the back end (four). The goals extended Shattenkirk's streak to four games and six points (two goals, four assists).

Shattenkirk set up two goals -- with one on the power play -- to supplement six PIM in Saturday's 5-4 road loss to Montreal.

EDGE Analysis

The elite power-play quarterback is working at a slightly better clip in terms of offensive production (two goals, seven assists) compared to his final output between the Blues and Capitals last season. It doesn't seem to matter who the New York native plays with, as his supreme on-ice awareness coupled with a rather accurate shot (for a defenseman) is highly conducive to producing for his fantasy owners. Keep rolling him out there.

Shattenkirk finished with a minus-1 rating, three blocked shots, six penalty minutes and a game-high seven giveaways in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Coyotes.

EDGE Analysis

Shattenkirk had a golden opportunity to get back on track at home against an Arizona club that came in 0-8-1, but instead failed to put a shot on goal for just the second time this season while turning the puck over seven times. That latter number was especially egregious considering nobody else from either team had more than three giveaways, and one of Shattenkirk's defensive-zone miscues unsurprisingly led to Arizona's first goal. New York was hoping to turn its prized free agent signing into a solid two-way defenseman, but Shattenkirk has already been demoted off the top pairing due to his deficiencies in his own zone and is now on a three-game point drought to boot after totaling two goals and five assists over his first eight games with the club.

Shattenkirk delivered two points on the power play -- a goal and an assist -- in Saturday's 8-5 loss to Toronto.

EDGE Analysis

He arrived on Broadway with a rep for power-play excellence and he showed off his stuff Saturday night. Still, the Rangers have not played well as a team in their first two outings. Watch Shattenkirk -- he will be very, very good, but there may come a time when the weight of five-on-five responsibility starts to drag his game down.

Shattenkirk signed a four-year, $26.6 million contract with the Rangers on Saturday, TSN's Frank Seravalli reports.

EDGE Analysis

This was perhaps the most highly anticipated acquisition of the free-agency signing period. Shattenkirk is one of the league's top offensive blueliners, and he represents an upgrade over Dan Girardi, who ended up signing with the Bolts -- also on Saturday. Last season, the Capitals acquired Shattenkirk from the Blues as a rental player in a failed bid for the Stanley Cup trophy. But the power-play quarterback with a right-handed shot will return to his home state of New York. He's an absolute gem in fantasy circles as the owner of 258 points (59 goals, 199 assists) in 425 career games between the Avalanche, Blues, and Caps.

Shattenkirk is "exploring options" following news that the Capitals are unlikely to re-sign any of their remaining unrestricted free agents, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Capitals GM Brian MacLellan elected to re-sign forward T.J. Oshie -- who would've been an unrestricted free agent himself -- for eight years and $46 million last week, making it extremely difficult for Shattenkirk and fellow UFA defenseman Karl Alzner to stay put. Originally nabbed by Colorado with the 14th overall pick in the 2007 draft, Shattenkirk spent parts of seven seasons with St. Louis before heading to the nation's capital as a rental player that the Capitals were hoping would put them over the top in their quest for the Stanley Cup. The power-play rearguard netted $4.25 million annually over four years of his most recent contract, but he'll almost assuredly get a raise with his next club after logging a career-high 57 points between the Blues and Capitals in 2016-17.

Shattenkirk, a pending unrestricted free agent, was exposed by the Capitals ahead of the expansion draft, The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Capitals courted Shattenkirk at this year's trade deadline for Zach Sanford, a 2017 first-round pick and conditional second-rounder for the 2019 draft. On the surface, the American rearguard appears to be a rental player -- but we won't know for sure until Vegas completes the 72-hour window of exclusive contract negotiations with any of the pending restricted or unrestricted free agents that were exposed. Shattenkirk is an elite defenseman who amassed 14 points in 19 games following his trade from the Blues. The Vegas Knights would gladly take a power-play quarterback under the right conditions, but the bigger question is whether Shattenkirk would want to play for a brand new franchise.
