Alexis Lafrenière News
New York Rangers forward Alexis Lafreniere has entered the NHL's COVID-19 protocols ahead of Thursday's game against the Sharks. The 20-year-old will miss the contest and as a result forward Lauri Pajuniemi has been recalled from the taxi squad. Lafreniere has scored eight goals and added three assists through 37 games, making the second-year forward a fantasy option only in the deepest of fantasy formats.
New York Rangers forward Alexis Lafreniere collected two points (one goal, one assists) in his team's 4-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday. The 19-year-old, who is looking more comfortable by the day as his rookie campaign comes to a close, also recorded a plus-one rating, two shots and one hit in 17:49 of ice time in the contest. As expected due to his youth, Lafreniere hasn't been very fantasy relevant in his debut campaign but has flashed the tremendous offensive skill that made him the first overall draft pick before the season. He's posted 16 points (nine goals, seven assists), 58 shots and 37 hits in 48 games in 2020-2021 and should take another leap forward next season.
New York Rangers left wing Alexis Lafreniere scored his first career NHL goal in Thursday's 3-2 overtime victory against the Sabres. Lafreniere failed to record a point through the first six games of the season, but the 19-year-old found a perfect time to record his first-career point in the NHL as he buried the OT winner past Sabres goaltender Linus Ullmark. Rangers left wing Artemi Panarin and center Ryan Strome each added one goal in the contest, while goaltender Igor Shesterkin stopped 23-of-25 shots for his first win of the season. The timely goal could be the boost needed for more consistency from the 2020 first overall draft selection moving forward, as Lafreniere is worth rostering across standard fantasy formats despite the slow start to open the season.
New York Rangers left wing Alexis Lafreniere will skate on the team's first line in Friday's battle with the Penguins. The No. 1 pick of this year's NHL Draft joins Chris Kreider and Mika Zibanejad on the top line. The latter is dealing with upper-body and lower-body injuries, but he is set to feature against Pittsburgh. Pavel Buchnevich will drop down to the second line. Lafreniere is pointless through his first three career games, but getting off the mark shouldn't take long for him alongside Zibanejad, who was in spectacular form last season with 75 points in 57 games. Also, the Pens defense hasn't been exactly rock-solid so far with 4.50 goals per game scored against them.
