Fantasy All-Access: Buy low on MacKinnon, Rask

Matt Sitkoff - NHL.com Contributor

By the end of this week, 29 of the 30 NHL teams will have played 10 games, making it a perfect time to look around your fantasy league and find some buy-low candidates to trade.

On average, forward Nathan MacKinnon of the Colorado Avalanche was drafted in the third round in Yahoo leagues, but he has no goals and four assists in nine games. This start might have owners thinking sophomore slump, but don't forget he had seven points in his first 11 games last season, yet finished the season with 56 points in his next 71. The talented center could be had for a low price.

Goaltender Tuukka Rask of the Boston Bruins, the reigning Vezina Trophy winner, is off to a slow start with a .897 save percentage and is now playing without his biggest weapon, defenseman Zdeno Chara, for the next 4-6 weeks. Email, text or tweet the owner of this talented goalie in your league and watch how they will be eager to trade him for a Darcy Kuemper or Frederik Andersen. They're solid goalie options, but don't forget Rask's best months in his career are December (1.85 goals-against average) and March (20 career wins).

ANAHEIM -- Anaheim Ducks center Ryan Kesler doesn't like to use the cliché phrase "measuring stick." Coach Bruce Boudreau would rather not look past any game other than the next one. So leave it up to young defenseman Cam Fowler to say out loud what is probably on the minds of the Ducks regarding their next five games.

"It's certainly going to be challenging," Fowler said.

Starting Sunday against the San Jose Sharks at Honda Center, the Ducks will be tested by some of the best in the Western Conference. They will also play at the Chicago Blackhawks, St. Louis Blues, Dallas Stars and Colorado Avalanche. All five teams were in the Stanley Cup Playoffs last season.

OTTAWA -- On a memorable night at the end of tragic week, Ottawa Senators forward Bobby Ryan said he knows what he will remember most.

"I think we knew the atmosphere was going to be like that right when we came out. It gives you the chills with the glow sticks going and the fans being loud. 'O Canada' was something that I'll always remember. I think a lot of people can echo that," Ryan said Saturday after an emotional night at Canadian Tire Centre.

In a coordinated effort, the Senators, Montreal Canadiens and the Toronto Maple Leafs honored two Canadian soldiers, Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and Warrant Officer Patrick Vincent, who were killed in separate incidents during the week. The ceremony also honored the first responders to those incidents.

The Senators and the New Jersey Devils stood shoulder-to-shoulder on the center ice circle for the ceremony. In the middle, at center ice, were representatives of the Canadian military.

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
