Methot (lower body) will miss 4-6 weeks.

EDGE Analysis

This could push Methot's return into the new year. Fantasy owners won't miss him, though, as he didn't register a point in 15 games before he got injured.

Methot (lower body) will not be in the lineup for Saturday's tilt versus Edmonton, Mike Heika of The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Methot will miss his fifth consecutive game due to his lower-body malady. While fans may miss his defensive stability, the 32-year-old's limited offensive contributions will likely minimize the impact of his absence for fantasy owners. The Ottawa native's next chance to return to the lineup will come Tuesday against Montreal.

Methot (lower body) won't play Tuesday against the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Methot will miss a third consecutive contest Tuesday, and the Stars haven't released any information regarding a potential return date for the veteran blueliner. Either way, Methot's continued absence will likely go unnoticed by most fantasy owners, as he's gone scoreless while posting a minus-1 rating in 15 games this campaign.

Methot (lower body) won't join the team as they travel to Carolina for Monday's matchup with the Hurricanes, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

This news all but rules Methot out of Monday's contest, though his status for the other two games on the road trip -- Tuesday against Florida and Thursday against Tampa Bay -- is still murky. However, with the former Sen having failed to score a point through 15 games in 2017-18, he shouldn't be missed much from a fantasy standpoint.

Methot is not expected to be available against the Islanders on Friday due to a lower-body injury, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Methot isn't exactly known as an offensive powerhouse -- his career high point total is 23 -- fantasy owners will no doubt be concerned about his lack of a single point through the first 15 games of the season. In addition to his scoring drought, the 32-year-old is logging less than 20 minutes per game (19:22), which is well below what you would expect out of an elite shutdown defender.

Methot finished Saturday's win over Colorado with one shot and a plus-1 rating.

EDGE Analysis

Through five games with his new team, Methot has no points and just three shots. His contributions to fantasy rosters has been minimal. Though, he has provided owners with nine blocked shots and a team-leading 15 hits. In most formats, you may get more production from another player.

Methot was traded by Vegas to the Stars on Monday in exchange for goaltender Dylan Ferguson and a second round draft pick in 2020.

EDGE Analysis

The former Senator was a Golden Knight for less than a week, as he's now taking his talents down to Texas to provide a stabilizing presence to the Stars' blue line. It's a bitter pill to swallow for Sens fans after Methot capably served as superstar Erik Karlsson's linemate for the better part of five years, but such is life when it comes to the expansion draft. Ferguson was recently selected 194th overall in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.

The Golden Knights have already started soliciting trade offers for Methot, Bruce Garrioch of Postmedia reports.

EDGE Analysis

Well, that didn't take long. The 32-year-old blueliner was plucked from the Senators on Thursday as Vegas' selection in the expansion draft despite Ottawa's last-ditch attempts at working out a deal to keep him. Garrioch also reported, via the Ottawa Citizen, that the alleged asking price by Knights GM George McPhee to refrain from selecting Methot was a 2018 first-round pick, which was too rich for the Sens' taste. At any rate, time will tell whether Methot is flipped to another club (he has a 10-team no-trade clause) this summer, or if he'll suit up as Vegas' de facto top rearguard this October.

Methot apparently has been taken by the Golden Knights, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Methot figures to headline Vegas' defensive core as its premier shut down defenseman. In terms of fantasy value, owners probably shouldn't expect much more production than the 12 points he put up last season, but fans in Ottawa will be lamenting his loss for a while. The 32-year-old averaged 2:04 of ice time shorthanded and will probably assume a similar role for new coach Gerard Gallant.

Methot was not protected by the Senators and will be exposed to the upcoming expansion draft, theScore reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although the veteran failed to score a goal last season, this comes as a bit of a surprise based on his status as one of the better defensive blueliners in the game. That said, it's likely that the team would prefer to protect Methot but simply isn't able to since fellow defensemanDion Phaneuf didn't agree to waive his no-movement clause. Regardless of where Methot plays this fall, it isn't likely to cause much of a stir from a fantasy standpoint, but Senators fans will likely be keeping their fingers crossed that he remains in Ottawa.
