Gerard has one goal and four assists over his last five games. But the uptick in ice time should be the focus of why you may want to add him.

John Marino, D, Pittsburgh Penguins (8%) - Marino scored a goal in his return from a facial injury on Tuesday. In his two games since returning he is a plus-two and is averaging over 20:00 minutes-a-game already. The Pens have an upcoming four game schedule next week.
Week 23 Schedule: @NJD, @CBJ, @CAR and vs. NYI
Igor Shesterkin, G, New York Rangers (31%) - Shesterkin has rejoined the Rangers after missing time due to a car accident on February 23rd. Shesterkin is the reason the Rangers are in striking distance of a playoff spot. In his ten appearances this season, he is 9-1-0 with GAA of just 2.23 and a save percentage of .940. If cleared to play soon, Shesterkin can be a steal that leads to a championship.
