Hedman dished out two assists in Thursday's win over the Stars.

EDGE Analysis

Hedman has been a steady source of offense from the back-end all season and he's now up to 15 points in 19 contests. The 26-year-old has the perfect gig quarterbacking the first power-play unit that features the NHL's top two scorers in Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov. Hedman has been logging monstrous minutes and is also aiding fantasy goers with strong PIM and hit totals. There aren't many better blueliners out there.

Hedman collected a pair of assists in Thursday's win over the Red Wings.

EDGE Analysis

Just another multi-assist effort from Hedman, who has recorded seven points in his last five games. The workhorse blueliner is an absolute fantasy stud and is now up to 13 points in 17 games on the season. Hedman quarterbacks the first power-play unit and has racked up 16 PIM thus far, making him the ideal fantasy rearguard. Use him well.

Hedman's two assists -- including one power-play helper -- against the Blue Jackets on Saturday made a true difference in the 5-4 shootout win.

Hedman recorded two assists -- one on the power play -- during Monday's 8-5 win over Florida.

EDGE Analysis

The stalwart defenseman has hit an offensive stride of late with five assists through his past five games. Hedman is averaging 25:48 of ice time per contest with a hefty 3:44 on the man advantage, so while his single goal and eight points don't jump off the page, his locked-in role and recent form are encouraging. In fact, there might be some circles where he's underappreciated and is a potential buy-low candidate.

Hedman went plus-2 with an assist in Saturday's 7-1 thrashing of the Penguins.

EDGE Analysis

An elite power-play quarterback, Hedman has yet to record a multi-point game this season, which is particularly disappointing given how each of the top-line forwards (Vladislav Namestnikov, Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov) are averaging more than a point per game. Still, the Swedish defenseman is healthy and averaging 25:18 of ice time, so we are confident he'll pick up the pace soon enough.

Hedman scored his first goal of the season in Thursday's 5-4 victory over Pittsburgh.

EDGE Analysis

Hedman is off to a bit of a slow start, especially for a guy coming off a 72-point season in 79 games in 2016-17. Right now, he has a goal and an assist in four games. Things will pick up soon. Hedman may be a good trade target if he takes a few more games to heat up and his owner gets inpatient.

Hedman was unable to convert his five shots on goal Sunday, as Tampa Bay was defeated 4-2 by Florida in the preseason contest.

EDGE Analysis

The Swedish star didn't have his best performance, as he was held off the scoresheet. Still, Hedman peppered James Reimer with five shots, stemming from the ridiculous 7:44 of power-play time he logged with the first unit. After scoring 16 goals and 54 assists in his excellent 71-point 2016-17 campaign, a third straight All-Star season is almost expected from the 26-year-old -- but don't be surprised if his goal total slightly drops, as the 9.6 shooting percentage he recorded last season was his career high.
