Dec. 27, 2016 Holden scored the go-ahead goal less than 7 minutes into the third period, lifting the New York Rangers to a comeback 4-3 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night. This was Holden's second goal of the game and sixth of the season.

2018-04-09 analysis After being acquired by the Bruins from the Rangers as the NHL trade deadline approached, Holden logged a goal and five points in 18 games, while helping his new team weather back line injuries.

2018-03-01 analysis Holden missed four straight games following his trade from the Rangers on Feb. 20.

With 107 points (35 goals, 72 assists) over 356 career contests between the Blue Jackets, Avalanche and Rangers, Holden isn't exactly a game-changer in the fantasy realm,

2018-02-20 analysis It was no secret that the Bruins were in the market for some blue line depth heading into the stretch run and they apparently got their man in Holden. The 30-year-old's production this season has been a bit of a disappointment, but the 2016-17 campaign that saw him record 34 points and a plus-13 rating serves as an excellent reminder that he can be an effective force in the right role.

2018-01-17 analysis Holden had the best offensive season of his career with 11 goals and 34 points in 80 games last year, but his scoring has dropped off sharply in his second campaign on Broadway. Through 40 appearances this time around, Holden has put up just three goals and eight points. At least being paired with two-way stud Ryan McDonagh for most of the season has allowed Holden to maintain a solid plus-6 ratin
2018-01-17 update Holden's point drought reached five games in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Flyers.
2017-12-20 analysis After registering 30 points last year, Holden has just a goal and five assists through 29 games to start this season. The 30-year-old defenseman is also hardly moving the fantasy needle in the peripheral categories with just 22 shots, two PIM and no power-play points. It's probably best to aim higher in the majority of settings.
2017-12-20 update Holden recorded two assists and a plus-2 rating through 18:21 of ice time during Tuesday's 4-1 win over Anaheim.
2017-11-29 analysis Holden was directly responsible for Florida's game-winning goal with 1:09 remaining, turning the puck over in the defensive zone before screening his own goaltender on his ensuing block attempt.

2017-11-17 analysis After starting out the year as a healthy scratch periodically, Holden appears to have cemented himself on the Rangers' blue line, as he is registering 19:25 of ice time in his previous six outing -- during which he scored both of his points -- which is over two minutes more than his season average (17:05). After setting career highs in both goals and assists in 2016-17, the defenseman will look to
2017-11-17 update Holden has garnered just two points through the opening month and a half of the 2017-18 campaign, however, both have come in the last five games.
2017-10-07 analysis The Alberta native was deemed valuable enough to be protected from the Golden Knights in the expansion draft, but at least to start this new season, he's on track to have watched the first two games from the press box. Holden added 11 goals, 23 assists and a plus-13 rating over 80 regular-season games last year.
