Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Records 20th helper

Donskoi produced an assist and four shots on goal in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Jets. Donskoi helped out on Riley Sheahan's second-period tally to get to the 20-assist mark. The 30-year-old Donskoi snapped a four-game point drought in Sunday's season finale. The Finn had a brutal season with just two goals and a 2.2 shooting percentage in 75 contests, occasionally serving as a healthy scratch. The good news is that there's little chance he does worse, but it's probably wise to take a wait-and-see approach with him next season.

Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Approaching 20 assists

Donskoi collected an assist in Friday's 6-3 loss to the Wild. Donskoi has strung together three assists over the last five games, serving as a decent bottom-six winger for the expansion club. Still, it hasn't been an easy adjustment for the Finn, as his shooting percentage has shrunk from a career-high mark with Colorado last season at 19.8 percent all the way down to 2.4 percent with the Kraken. He's only scored twice but has managed 19 assists to keep him from falling off the map completely in fantasy games.

Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Contributes assist in loss

Donskoi managed an assist and two PIM in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Flames. Donskoi helped out on an Adam Larsson tally in the second period. With a seemingly permanent spot on the fourth line, Donskoi has done little to improve his poor scoring numbers this season. His assist Tuesday ended a six-game point drought, but he's at only 19 points with 80 shots on net and a minus-10 rating through 67 appearances.

Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Chips in with helper

Donskoi logged an assist in Monday's 6-1 win over the Kings. Donskoi ended a four-game skid that also included four absences due to an undisclosed injury. The 29-year-old winger got back on the scoresheet as he helped out on Daniel Sprong's third-period tally. With just 18 points through 60 contests, Donskoi's first year with the Kraken has been a significant disappointment that's seen him slip into a fourth-line role lately.

Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Nets second goal of season

Donskoi scored a goal in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Capitals. Donskoi got the Kraken on the board with 3:04 left in the first period. The tally snapped his four-game point drought since his most recent healthy scratch Feb. 22. The 29-year-old winger has had an unlucky first season with the Kraken, posting two goals, 15 assists, 65 shots on net and a minus-9 rating in 55 appearances. Given his subpar production, he could occasionally find himself in the press box.

Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Earns shorthanded helper

Donskoi produced a shorthanded assist in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Canucks. Donskoi set up Mark Giordano's shorthanded tally in the first period. The assist snapped Donskoi's six-game point drought, but he's still been a passenger more often than not when it comes to offense. The Finnish winger has just one goal, 15 helpers, 62 shots on net and a minus-6 rating through 51 outings -- he had 31 points in the same number of games last season.

Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Snaps season-long goal drought

Donskoi scored a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Bruins. One of the league's most puzzling statistical oddities came to an end Tuesday, as Donskoi finally lit the lamp in the third period. The 29-year-old had come up empty on his first 52 shots of the year -- a prolonged struggle for a winger who had scored at least 14 times in each of the last four campaigns. He's up to 15 points, 55 shots on net and a minus-4 rating through 44 contests in 2021-22, but he's likely to remain in a bottom-six role unless he gets hot on offense.

Joonas Donskoi, Kraken relieved with finally getting a win

Joonas Donskoi had scored in the shootout before for the Kraken. That was in the first shootout in franchise history Dec. 1, when they lost in Detroit. On Monday, in a 2-2 game where Ryan Donato had just given Seattle the shootout lead, he had the chance again, but this time, to win it.

Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Logs power-play helper

Donskoi notched a power-play assist and blocked two shots in Saturday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets. Donskoi nearly had his first goal of the season, but his shot was tipped in by Jaden Schwartz. The 29-year-old Donskoi remains snakebit for goals, but he's up to a reasonable 13 assists, 33 shots on net and a plus-2 rating through 27 contests. He plays in a fourth-line role most of the time, though the Kraken's balanced offense means that's not a totally unproductive place for him.

Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Garners helper

Donskoi produced an assist and went plus-2 in Wednesday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Red Wings. Donskoi helped out on the first of Ryan Donato's two goals in the game, as the two wingers joined center Yanni Gourde on the top line. Injuries depleted the Kraken's roster for Wednesday's game and possibly going forward, but that could lead to a bigger role for Donskoi. The Finn remains in search of his first goal, but he has 11 helpers, 29 shots on net and a plus-4 rating in 23 contests.

Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Two helpers against Florida

Donskoi notched two assists, one on the power play, in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Panthers. It's the first multi-point performance of the season for the 29-year-old.

Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Picks up helper in loss

Donskoi managed an assist in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Golden Knights. Donskoi helped out on Yanni Gourde's second-period goal. The assist snapped a four-game point drought for Donskoi who has racked up six helpers in 13 contests overall. The Finnish winger has added 20 shots on net, a plus-1 rating and 11 hits in a middle-six role -- none of those numbers add much of a "wow" factor in fantasy, but he's a solid depth option.

Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Snags assist in win

Donskoi produced an assist, six shots on goal, three hits and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Wild. Donskoi earned the secondary helper on a Haydn Fleury goal in the first period. The 29-year-old Donskoi has flown under the radar a bit, but he's up to five assists, 14 shots on net and nine hits through eight contests. The Finn occupies a second-line role, and he's often productive enough to be a depth option in fantasy.

Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Records helper Saturday

Donskoi registered an assist and three blocked shots in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Canucks. Donskoi had a helper on Vince Dunn's tally late in the first period. The three blocks were Donskoi's first of the year -- it's rare for any forward, let alone a winger, to lead his team in blocks in a game. The Finn has quietly collected four assists, eight shots on net and an even plus-minus rating in six games. He's dropped to the third line in recent games, but a role on the power play should keep him on the lower end of the fantasy radar.
