Kraken's Alexander Wennberg: Game-time decision

Wennberg (not injury related) is out of the league's COVID-19 protocols but remains a game-time call versus Colorado on Monday, Mike Benton of Sports Radio KJR reports. Wennberg is currently mired in a nine-game goal drought dating back to Dec. 3 versus Edmonton while registering three assists over that stretch. Even if Wennberg does suit up Monday, fantasy players probably shouldn't be expecting him to log north of 19 minutes as he has averaged this season, which could limit his opportunities to get back on the scoresheet.
