Shattenkirk's point drought reached three games in Tuesday's 5-3 win over Montreal, and he has just one point in the past nine games.

EDGE Analysis

While the expensive blueliner is having trouble getting on the scoresheet, he's still getting opportunities to do so, as his 4:49 of ice time on the power play led all Rangers defensemen in this one. It might not be a bad idea to kick the tires on a trade for the six-time 40-point scorer, as Shattenkirk's value has likely hit rock bottom right now.

Shattenkirk will watch from the press box for Thursday's matchup with San Jose, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coach David Quinn did follow up by saying that Shattenkirk would be in action for Saturday's tilt against the Oilers. In part due to injuries, the blueliner has failed to live up to expectations since being traded away from St. Louis during the 2016-17 campaign -- even serving as a healthy scratch for the Capitals in the postseason. Perhaps his benching will be a wakeup call for the 29-year-old and he can register his first point of the season Saturday.

Shattenkirk is shaping up to be a healthy scratch for Thursday's home game versus the Sharks, Brian Heyman of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Shattenkirk admitted that he's been playing "Not great," which is a statement backed by his minus-4 rating and three-game pointless stretch to begin the season. He has hoisted 10 shots between contests against the Predators, Sabres and Hurricanes, respectively, but the power-play quarterback hasn't been able to get anything to fall. Perhaps the best-case scenario is for Shattenkirk to take the next game off to devise a better plan of attack for Saturday's matinee against the Oilers.

Shattenkirk (rest) is expected to dress for Wednesday's preseason clash with the Islanders.

EDGE Analysis

Shattenkirk was held out Monday against New Jersey after playing in consecutive games and appears to be ready to lace up his skates again. An injury plagues 2017-18 campaign saw the blueliner appear in just 46 contests. As a result, he failed to crack the 40-point mark for the first time since the lockout shortened 2012-13 season. If he can stay healthy, the 29-year-old is capable of getting back to being a top-end fantasy producer.

Shattenkirk won't play Monday against the Devils, but is expected to play back-to-back games Wednesday and Thursday, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Shattenkirk missed the end of last season with a knee issue, so it makes sense that the Rangers want to be careful with him this preseason. The 29-year-old will be expected to quarterback the Rangers' power play this year, so his health is going to be paramount for the team, and also for fantasy owners.

Shattenkirk is projected to play in Saturday's preseason contest against the Islanders, according to the Rangers' official twitter.

EDGE Analysis

This is great news for prospective Shattenkirk owners, as it means he's fully recovered from the meniscus tear that cut his first season on Broadway short. A healthy Shattenkirk can be expected to make major contributions on the power play, having recorded 25 or more points with the extra man in four consecutive seasons prior to his 2017-18 campaign, which was shortened by the aforementioned knee injury.

Shattenkirk was back on the ice Thursday and should be completely ready to go by training camp, Jon Lane of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Shattenkirk's first season with his hometown team was a disappointing one, as a meniscus tear in his left knee ended the offensive-minded blueliner's campaign early. He had surgery to repair the injury Jan. 22 and appears to be well on his way to a full recovery from that procedure. Having a healthy Shattenkirk in 2018-19 would be a major boon to both fantasy owners and the young Rangers squad around him, so hopefully he can avoid any setbacks moving forward.

Shattenkirk (knee) remains on schedule in his rehab and he'll resume skating in approximately one month, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The New York native last played Jan. 18 -- missing the final 36 games -- but there's been nothing to suggest that the star defenseman will get off to a late start in training camp. Shattenkirk recorded 23 points (five goals, 18 assists) over 46 contests as part of his debut season in The Big Apple, and with any luck in the health department, he could revert to being one of the premier fantasy options at the blue-line position.

Shattenkirk (knee) should be healthy enough to take part in next season's training camp.

EDGE Analysis

This comes as positive news for Shattenkirk, who sat out the final 36 games of the season due to injury. While the Boston University product didn't live up to his $6.65 million cap hit, he didn't have a bad season either, logging 23 points in 46 games. Despite his defensive deficiencies, as long as Shattenkirk continues to skate upwards of three minutes per game on the power play, he'll be a useful player to fantasy owners.

Shattenkirk (knee) has been ruled out for the rest of the season.

EDGE Analysis

Shattenkirk, whose hometown is located 20-some miles away from Madison Square Garden, mercilessly puts an end to his debut campaign with the Rangers. The star blueliner finishes with five goals, 18 assists -- including 12 power-play points -- through 46 games. The low volume of games makes it look like Shattenkirk had a poor season, but his 0.5 PPG output actually trumped his career average. Look for Shattenkirk to come at a bargain price in fantasy drafts this fall. He's under contract with New York until the 2020-11 campaign, and a modified no-trade, no-move clause was included in the terms of the deal.
