2018-02-08 analysis The veteran blueliner will return to the lineup following a three-game absence due to a lower-body injury. Girardi, , who's notched three goals and 12 points in 48 contests this campaign, will skate with Mikhail Sergachev on Tampa Bay's second pairing against Vancouver.

2018-02-07 analysis Girardi is in danger of missing a fourth consecutive game Thursday, but if he's unable to go his absence shouldn't impact many fantasy lineups, as he's only totaled three goals and 12 points in 48 contests this campaign. If he's able to return to the lineup against Vancouver, the veteran blueliner will likely bump Andrej Sustr from the lineup.

2018-02-05 analysis Girardi told reporters he is hoping to return soon, which leaves open the possibility he suits up versus Vancouver on Thursday. Prior to getting hurt, the defenseman garnered a lone assist in his previous six outings, along with four shots, nine hits and 12 blocks. For fantasy owners looking for hits (71) and blocked shots (108), Girardi could certainly fill a gap, but don't expect him to chip in

2018-02-01 analysis The 33-year-old blueliner will be considered day-to-day with the injury. Girardi has just 12 points on the season, but has an impressive plus-18 rating. This likely won't have much fantasy relevance, but it certainly hurts Tampa Bay's depth.

2018-01-10 analysis The remarkable shot blocker stopped a puck Sunday between his jaw and chin, which caused him to briefly lose feeling in his arm. But Girardi passed all concussion tests and practised Tuesday, but was a last-minute scratch that night. He's a little sore, but will be in the lineup Thursday against the Flames.

2018-01-09 analysis Girardi has earned the reputation as a warrior throughout his tenured NHL career and the fact that he might not miss any game action after taking a shot directly to the neck is just another testament as to why. The 33-year-old isn't much of an offensive threat despite putting up two points last time out, but he is extremely adept at shot blocking, which is unfortunately what got him into this situ Despite what was previously reported, Girardi will remain in the press box for Tuesday's game. The ironman has played all 42 games this season, notching three goals and eight assists, while working his way to a plus-17 rating.

2018-01-08 analysis Considering the force with which Girardi was hit in the neck with the puck, his injury could have been significantly worse. The team did not announce any decisions regarding the veteran's availability versus the Hurricanes on Tuesday, so it's possible he avoids missing any time. If the defenseman is sidelined, Andrej Sustr or Braydon Coburn should slot into the lineup in his stead.

2018-01-07 analysis Girardi dropped to a knee in an attempt to block Frk's shot as he received a one-timer near top of the left faceoff circle, and inadvertently caught the shot high and collapsed to the ice.

2017-12-24 analysis The game was a saw-off for most of the night until things broke open with Girardi's snipe. He isn't known for his offense, but it sure came in handy here.
2017-12-24 update Girardi scored the game-winning goal with 2:42 remaining in the third period Saturday in a 3-0 win over Minnesota. He also added an assist.
2017-12-08 analysis The veteran defenseman has just a single goal and seven points through 28 games for the campaign, and he's also logging a career-low 16:57 of ice time per contest. Girardi is still chipping in respectable peripheral numbers with 10 PIM, 44 hits, 65 blocked shots and a plus-9 rating, but fantasy owners would probably need more offense from him to warrant a roster spot in the majority of settings.
2017-12-08 update Girardi collected two assists, two shots and three hits through 17:55 of ice time during Thursday's 5-2 win over Colorado.
2017-11-18 analysis The plus-3 stands out on a night where Tampa Bay surrendered five goals and looked oddly mortal. The heavyweight defender is worth a look in deeper formats that reward his contributions in hits (31) and blocked shots (46), but he remains a reach in standard formats.
2017-11-18 update Girardi finished with an assist and a plus-3 rating during Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Islanders.
2017-11-13 analysis Unfortunately, he has just one more in his previous 14 games. Girardi is valuable on the ice, but not in the fantasy arena.
2017-11-13 update Girardi has two assists in his last four games.
2017-10-20 analysis The bottom-pairing defenseman has only set 11 shots on goal, and he's logging 17:12 of ice time, which is his lowest mark since entering the league with the Rangers in 2006-07. Girardi is likely someone you can cut bait with in favor of a surging waiver acquisition in shallow leagues.
2017-10-20 update Girardi is still searching for his first point as a member of the Lightning.
