News: Russell dished out an assist and finished with a plus-3 rating in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Coyotes. Impact: Russell helped set up Paul Byron's second goal of the game and played well on his own end, blocking five shots and forcing a team-high three takeaways. The 27-year-old has been generally quiet since tallying six assists over a five-game stretch in October, but he still represents a quality depth option on defense in deeper fantasy formats.(RotoWire, )
