11/2/2014 11:02:00 AM
Description: Wild left wing Thomas Vanek finally scored his first goal of the season on Saturday.
Insight: Vanek did have seven assists before Saturday but had not scored. Fantasy owners hope this goal can get him going. He is also plus-three with three penalty minutes.
 
10/3/2014 5:03:00 PM
Description: Wild left wing Thomas Vanek will look to make a positive impact during his first season in Minnesota.
Insight: Vanek will not have as much pressure as he has had in the past, as he begins the season on the Wild's second line. Figure him to score around 60-70 points, which should result in owners drafting him around the sixth round.
 
7/1/2014 8:26:00 PM
Description: Thomas Vanek has signed a three-year, $19.5 million deal with the Wild.
Insight: Minnesota will be the fourth team Vanek has played for since the start of the 2013-14 season. Vanek played for the University of Minnesota from 2002-04. He had fantasy value everywhere he went last season, producing nine points in 13 games with Buffalo, 15 points in 18 games with Montreal and 44 points in 47 games with the New York Islanders. He should challenge the 70-point mark again in 2014-15.
 
5/12/2014 10:36:00 PM
Description: Monday was Thomas Vanek's second multi-goal game of the playoffs.
Insight: After scoring just once in the first round against Tampa Bay, Vanek now has four goals in six contests versus the Bruins. Game 7 will be played Wednesday night at TD Garden.
 
5/4/2014 9:28:00 AM
Description: Thomas Vanek paced Montreal with two goals Saturday in a loss to Boston.
Insight: Vanek had just one goal in the first round so this was easily his best game of the playoffs. Unfortunately it may have been his team's worst as the Canadiens fell for the first time this postseason. Both of Vanek's goals on Saturday came on the power play.
 
3/27/2014 10:17:00 PM
Description: Canadiens left wing Thomas Vanek had three points (one goal, two assists) Thursday against the Red Wings.
Insight: Vanek (26 G, 36 A) has had two three-point efforts in 11 games with the Habs but has delivered just three points combined in his other nine games during that timeframe.
 
3/18/2014 10:21:00 PM
Description: Canadiens left wing Thomas Vanek delivered a hat trick in Tuesday's 6-3 win over Colorado.
Insight: It's the ninth hat trick of Vanek's career and his first since January 31, 2013. Vanek had been scoreless in his first five games with Montreal prior to Tuesday.
 
3/6/2014 6:45:00 PM
Description: Canadiens forward Thomas Vanek is a go for Thursday night's game against Phoenix. SOURCE: Montreal Gazette
Insight: This will be Vanek's Montreal debut. He's expected to play on the second line alongside Tomas Plekanec and Alex Galchenyuk.
 
3/5/2014 3:35:00 PM
Description: The Islanders have traded Thomas Vanek to the Montreal Canadiens, according to Arthur Staple of Newsday.
Insight: Vanek (21 goals, 32 assists) was not going to re-sign with the Islanders after the season so the team was forced to trade him. His fantasy value doesn't change much, though it will be good for him to play for a team with playoff aspirations.
 
3/4/2014 6:33:00 PM
Description: Thomas Vanek will not play Tuesday against the Jets, according to John Shannon of sportsnet.ca.
Insight: Vanek (21 goals, 32 assists) has played his last game with the Islanders, as the team is expected to trade him before Wednesday's deadline.
 
3/4/2014 6:11:00 PM
Description: The Bruins and Ducks are both in on Islanders left wing Thomas Vanek, who is expected to be dealt before tomorrow's trade deadline. SOURCE: David Pagnotta, TheFourthPeriod.com
Insight: With no guarantee that Vanek (21 goals, 32 assists) will re-sign as a free agent this summer, it makes sense for the Islanders to deal him now so they can at least get something in return. Boston acquired Jaromir Jagr at the trade deadline last season and could make another big splash at this year's deadline. Acquiring Vanek would certainly qualify.
 
Hot3/2/2014 7:28:00 PM
Description: Islanders left wing Thomas Vanek had two goals and an assist Sunday against the Panthers.
Insight: Vanek has recorded four points the last two games despite playing without John Tavares, who is out for the season with a knee injury. The 30-year-old will be a free agent at the end of the season and likely will be traded before the deadline.
 
2/6/2014 7:55:00 PM
Description: The Islanders are looking to trade left wing Thomas Vanek before Friday's Olympic trade deadline. SOURCE: Renaud Lavoie, Le Journal de Montreal
Insight: It's become increasingly clear to the Islanders that Vanek is going to leave when he becomes a free agent at the end of the season. Vanek (19 goals, 28 assists) would make a nice supporting piece for a contender like Anaheim or Minnesota.
 
2/4/2014 6:36:00 PM
Description: According to Newsday, New York left wing Thomas Vanek is preparing to test the open market this summer. Vanek's current contract expires after this season.
Insight: His other option would be to sign a long-term deal with the Islanders. Returning to the Isles remains an option for the 30-year-old Vanek though it makes sense for him to see what else is out there. Vanek had spent his previous eight and a half seasons with Buffalo before being traded to the Islanders in October.

Hot1/25/2014 5:20:00 PM
Description: The Penguins put a stop to Islanders left wing Thomas Vanek's six-game scoring streak Thursday, but Vanek came back with a goal and an assist Saturday against the Blues. He had a second goal, which would have been the game-winner with 1:15 left in overtime, overturned by review because league officials ruled that Vanek kicked the puck in.
Insight: After starting off slowly following his trade from the Sabres to the Isles, Vanek has generated 25 points (nine goals) in his last 19 games. However, he wasn't happy about the call that cost his team a point. "I think it's a terrible call," said Vanek. "I don't know if it's who we are. If that's Pittsburgh or a top team, that's maybe a goal. It's just a terrible call. We all know what a kicking motion is."
 
1/23/2014 7:00:00 PM
Description: Don't be surprised if Thomas Vanek re-signs with the Islanders when he becomes a free agent next summer. SOURCE: Newsday
Insight: Even if the Islanders trade him, Vanek said he'd be open to returning to New York. He's averaged exactly a point per game in his 36 contests for the Isles this season.
 
Hot1/22/2014 9:59:00 AM
Description: Islanders left wing Thomas Vanek has come up with 23 points in his last 17 games.
Insight: It took some time for Vanek to develop chemistry with John Tavares after coming over from Buffalo in a trade, but the top line of Tavares-Vanek-Kyle Okposo has been clicking in the past month.
 
Hot1/22/2014 12:02:00 AM
Description: Islanders left wing Thomas Vanek added a goal and an assist against the Rangers Tuesday night.
Insight: Vanek has 18 goals and 27 assist in 48 games. He's certainly living up to the hype.
 
Hot1/6/2014 9:58:00 PM
Description: Islanders left wing Thomas Vanek's two assists Monday against the Stars extended his scoring streak to nine games.
Insight: Vanek has five goals and 14 points during the streak. After failing to make an impact initially, playing with John Tavares is finally yielding positive results for Vanek.
