    News: Kelly will make an appearance in Game 5 against the Bruins on Friday.
    Impact: The veteran will sub in for the injured Tom Pyatt (upper body). Kelly will provide leadership intangibles that are so crucial around playoff time, but he's not worth a look in playoff pools since his playing time currently depends on the health of others.

    News: Kelly appears likely to be a healthy scratch for Game 1 against the Bruins on Wednesday, Ian Mendes of TSN reports.
    Impact: Kelly struggled down the stretch, going scoreless over his final 15 appearances dating back to March 11. His playing time had dwindled under the 10-minute mark for a five-game stretch from March 30 to April 6 before he played a larger role in the final two games with several veterans resting. Kelly appeared in all 82 games this season, but it appears he'll have to wait to tag in for the postseason.

    News: Kelly enters Saturday's game against the Jets without a goal in 24 outings dating back to Feb. 9 against the Stars.
    Impact: Offense hasn't exactly been Kelly's specialty over the years, but he has recorded seven NHL seasons with 10 or more goals. Over the past few seasons he has been a bottom-six forward mostly finding work due to his ability on the penalty kill. He remains nothing more than filler in deeper fantasy pools.

    News: Kelly will work with Max McCormick and Jean-Gabriel Pageau in Tuesday's game against the Devils, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
    Impact: Kelly has managed just five goals and 10 points with a team-worst minus-13 rating, so he has a long way to go before he gets back into the good graces of fantasy owners. However, he should see more opportunity to get on track with Mike Hoffman (groin), Bobby Ryan (finger) and Mark Stone (neck) sidelined. Kelly is also a boon to fantasy owners in leagues that count his work in the faceoff circle.
