12/24/2011 2:16:00 AM
Description: Michael Ryder scored a goal and added two assists in the Stars' 6-3 win over Nashville on Friday. NHL.com
Insight: Ryder now has 13 goals this season, including goals in four consecutive games. He was notoriously streaky during his days in Montreal and Boston, so he is probably worth a short-term pickup in many fantasy leagues.

Description: Michael Ryder scored a goal and added two assists with a +2 in the Stars' 5-2 win over Carolina on Sunday. NHL.com
Insight: Ryder has the reputation for disappearing offensively for long stretches, but his name has shown up on the scoresheet often in his first season in Big D. Ryder has nine points (4g-5a) with a +7 in 13 games played, along with decent icetime and power-play time.

Description: The Dallas Stars have signed Michael Ryder to a two-year contract worth $7 million. The Stars also signed defensemen Sheldon Souray and Adam Pardy. TSN
Insight: Ryder can score (18 goals and 41 points last season), but his play can be maddeningly inconsistent. Still, teams are still willing to pay the big bucks for him. Souray, meanwhile, recently had his contract bought out by the Oilers. He has battled injury the last few seasons, so it will be interesting to see if he has anything left.

Description: Michael Ryder scored a goal and added two assists in the Bruins' 8-1 win over Vancouver in Game 3 on Monday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: Once Nathan Horton left the game, Ryder was bumped up to the Bruins' top line with Milan Lucic and David Krejci. Ryder also saw some power-play time, as his goal and one of his assists came with the man advantage. Assuming that Horton misses Game 4, Ryder should continue to see top-line minutes.

Description: Michael Ryder scored two goals and added an assist with a +2 in the Bruins' 6-5 win over Tampa Bay in Game 2 on Tuesday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: Ryder may not be the most appealing scorer out there, but it is worth mentioning that he has points in four of his last five games. He clearly benefitted from playing on Tyler Seguin's line in this game, and he scored one of the Bruins' two power-play goals in this game. Ryder and Seguin were catalysts in resuscitating an anemic Bruins' power play that was a miserable 2-for-41 entering this game.
