Colorado Avalanche DFS SPIN
Artturi Lehkonen’s injury, which was previously just described as upper body, is a neck issue, coach Jared Bednar told Peter Baugh of The Athletic on Thursday.
There’s no timetable for Lehkonen’s return, but he’s on the long-term injured reserve list and consequently won’t return until Dec. 5 versus Anaheim at the earliest. He has three goals and eight points in 12 contests this season. With Lehkonen unavailable, Tomas Tatar has seen his playing time inch upward over the last two contests.
Dallas Stars DFS SPIN
Jason Robertson picked up a power-play assist and fired seven shots on goal in Tuesday’s 4-3 overtime win over the Coyotes.
Robertson has amassed three goals and three helpers over his last six contests. He’s starting to get back to the level that has made him a safe early-round pick over the last couple of seasons. Overall, the 24-year-old has 14 points (five on the power play), 44 shots, eight hits, eight PIM and an even plus-minus rating over 15 appearances.
