Description: Nashville winger Andrei Kostitsyn will miss Game 3 of the Western Conference Semifinals Wednesday against Phoenix for a violation of team rules.
Insight: Kostitsyn has come up big in the playoffs with a team-high three goals in seven playoff games and his absence will be missed.

Description: Andrei Kostitsyn told a Belarussian sports website that he is unhappy with Canadiens coach Jacques Martin. TSN
Insight: Andrei's younger brother Sergei Kostitsyn ended up in Martin's doghouse and eventually found himself traded to Nashville. The elder Kostitsyn is in the final year of his contract, so don't expect him to stay in Montreal beyond this season unless Martin is fired.

Description: The Montreal Canadiens have re-signed forward Andrei Kostitsyn to a one-year contract extension worth $3.25 million. TSN
Insight: Kostitsyn scored 45 points (20g-25a) in 81 games last season. He has scored at least 20 goals in three of his last four seasons, so he is an option for filling out your fantasy roster.

Description: Andrei Kostitsyn and Jeff Halpern are both listed as game-time decisions for Game 2 against Boston on Saturday. WEEI

Description: Andrei Kostitsyn is a healthy scratch for the Canadiens for Sunday's game against Atlanta. TSN
Insight: This is not the first time that Kostitsyn has been a healthy scratch this season. He has found the net just once in his last 14 games, so Habs coach Jacques Martin may be trying to send a message.

Insight: Habs coach Jacques Martin is clearly going with the players who are performing. Hopefully the benching will light a fire under Kostitsyn, while Subban is becoming harder and harder to rely on.
 
12/21/2010 2:57:00 PM
Description: Andrei Kostitsyn will be a healthy scratch for the Canadiens on Tuesday against Dallas. TSN
Insight: AK46 is a healthy scratch because he has no goals in his last nine games and had been sent to the fourth line recently. He can be very inconsistent, so it may be time to look for another option for the time being.

Description: Andrei Kostitsyn scored a goal and added an assist in the Canadiens' 5-3 win over the Islanders on Wednesday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: Kostitsyn leads the Habs in scoring this season with six goals and ten points in nine games. He appears to be worth snagging off the waiver wire while he is on a roll with the right linemates.

Description: Andrei Kostitsyn scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in the Canadiens' 3-2 overtime win over Phoenix on Monday. TSN
Insight: Kostitsyn has scored three goals in his last two games and six points over his last four games. He seems to be clicking alongside linemates Mike Cammalleri and Tomas Plekanec, which increases the streaky Kostitsyn's fantasy value.

Description: Kostitsyn scored his first goal of the season on Wednesday night against Tampa Bay.
Insight: Kostitsyn has points in back-to-back games to give him a goal and an assist in his first three games. (RapidDraft.com)
