Left Wing Player Notes
For The Last 15 Days
 
Jussi Jokinen, LW, FLA7/3/2014 1:00:00 PM
Description: Jussi Jokinen will likely see a decrese in fantasy value after signing with the Florida Panthers Tuesday.
Insight: Jokinen saw top-six minutes for the Penguins last season and finished with 21 goals and 57 points, both his most since 2009-10. However, he'll go from having Evgeni Malkin as his center to 21-year-old Nick Bjugstad, 18-year-old Aleksander Barkov or fellow free agent signee Dave Bolland.
Matt Moulson, LW, BUF7/2/2014 5:48:00 PM
Description: Matt Moulson signed a five-year, $25 million contract with the Sabres Tuesday.
Insight: The Islanders trade of Moulson to the Sabres for Thomas Vanek last season promptly sunk his fantasy value. He had 11 goals and 18 assists in 44 games with Buffalo before being dealt to Minnesota, where he had six goals and seven assists in 20 games. He'll be a 50-point player at best in 2014-15 given the talent level on the Sabres.
Thomas Vanek, LW, MIN7/1/2014 8:26:00 PM
Description: Thomas Vanek has signed a three-year, $19.5 million deal with the Wild.
Insight: Minnesota will be the fourth team Vanek has played for since the start of the 2013-14 season. Vanek played for the University of Minnesota from 2002-04. He had fantasy value everywhere he went last season, producing nine points in 13 games with Buffalo, 15 points in 18 games with Montreal and 44 points in 47 games with the New York Islanders. He should challenge the 70-point mark again in 2014-15.
