Description: Ducks winger Corey Perry scored his 27th goal of the season on Sunday night.
Insight: Perry continues to produce for fantasy owners, however he actually has not lived up to expectations this season. After coming into 2014-15 as the third-ranked player, he is just a top-60 option at the moment.

Description: The Rangers have acquired defenseman Keith Yandle from Arizona.
Insight: This is a massive deal, and will improve Yandle's fantasy value immediately. He already had four goals and 41 points this season but a poor minus-32 rating as well. His plus/minus ratio should improve right away. Anthony Duclair, John Moore, and draft picks went to the Coyotes.

Description: Canadiens center David Desharnais scored a pair of goals in the, 4-0, victory over the Maple Leafs on Saturday.
Insight: Desharnais scored both of his goals in the final period as insurance. Not that Carey Price needed it, who has allowed more than two goals just once in his last 10 starts. Desharnais has 11 goals and 27 assists with a plus-22 rating this season.
Description: Bruins left wing Brad Marchand had a goal and an assist in the, 4-1, victory over the Coyotes on Saturday.

He will already have the second-best plus/minus on the Penguins. Toronto will pay half of Winnik's salary, and he will be an unrestricted free agent this summer.
Description: The Blackhawks have placed winger Patrick Kane on long-term injured reserve according to NHL.com.
Insight: That means Kane will be out for at least 24 days or 10 games. Kane fell head-first into the boards on Tuesday after taking a cross check to the lower back. Some reports are saying he could miss more than 10 weeks.
Description: The Chicago Tribune is now reporting Kane could miss even more than 10 weeks due to his crash into the boards on Tuesday night.
Insight: The rumors continue to circle, and fantasy owners won't know anything for sure until Wednesday at the earliest. The reports, however, have all been negative, so at the very least, owners need a replace for the next month.
Description: Blackhawks winger Patrick Kane left Tuesday's game after crashing head first into the boards against the Panthers.

Insight: Darling made 34 saves in the shootout victory over the Panthers. He is 6-2-0 with a 1.96 GAA and .938 save percentage in eight starts, but since this was his first start in over two months, he isn't fantasy relevant.

Insight: Allen allowed five goals on 23 shots, which is just a .783 save percentage. Prior to Tuesday, Allen had allowed just six goals in all of February. After a strong first half, Allen is just too unpredicatable for fantasy owners to trust.
