    News: Giordano recorded 12 goals and 39 points in 81 games this season, which was his lowest point total in a full campaign since 2009-10. He also fired 151 shots on goal -- 61 less than last year.
    Impact: On the bright side, the captain skated to a career-high plus-22. That's hardly a consolation for owners accustomed to Giordano's 47-plus points in each of the previous three campaigns, but at least his hits (78) and blocked shots (184) were in the same ballpark of 2015-16's totals of 65 and 193.

    News: Giordano had an assist Tuesday along with five penalty minutes for a fight stemming from his knee-to-knee hit on Cam Fowler which forced the Ducks defenseman to leave the game.
    Impact: Giordano claimed "there was no intent to hurt him," but the Ducks felt differently and he could be a marked man if these teams were to meet in the playoffs.
    Rotowire: Apr 3 / 12:06a ET
    News: Giordano collected two assists in 24:57 of ice time in Sunday's loss to the Ducks.
    Impact: That was the most ice time Giordano has logged since a game against Montreal in early March. The workhorse has had a down year offensively, but is sporting what would be a career-high plus-21 rating, in addition to aiding fantasy goers with 54 PIM. The 33-year-old's offense may be on the decline, but he still logs significant minutes, plays on the power play and delivers fairly consistent production, making him valuable in most leagues.

    News: Giordano scored his 12th goal of the season Sunday as he finished at a plus-2.
    Impact: Giordano has been among the league's most productive defensemen over the past month or so. He's compiled six goals, six assists, 12 penalty minutes and a plus-14 over his last 15 games.
    Rotowire: Mar 18 / 6:30a ET
    News: Giordano registered a goal, two assists, two shots on net, a minor penalty, four blocked shots and a plus-3 rating Friday night against Dallas.
    Impact: It was a monster cross-category showing for Giordano. The veteran defenseman has seen his offensive numbers drop this year, but he's still provided solid fantasy value with 11 goals, 33 points, 130 shots, 52 PIM, 163 blocked shots and a plus-21 rating. It's worth noting that Giordano is beginning to shoulder less of an offensive role with Dougie Hamilton and T.J. Brodie in their prime years, so the elder statesman's stock is in decline heading into the 2017-18 campaign.
