Blackhawks Place Cumiskey On Waivers

News: The Blackhawks placed Kyle Cumiskey on waivers Thursday, Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman reports.
Analysis: Kyle Cumiskey earned a spot on the Blackhawks' roster out of camp, but did not appear in a game and was deemed expendable for the time being. He will head to AHL Rockford if he clears waivers.

Cumiskey Makes Chicago Roster

News: Kyle Cumiskey has made the Blackhawks' Opening Night roster, Tracey Myers of CSNChicago.com reports.
Analysis: With Michal Rozisval (upper body) likely unavailable for the Blackhawks' first two games, Kyle Cumiskey will offer the team some insurance on the blue line. He'll likely operate as the team's seventh defenseman to begin the season, with a demotion to AHL Rockford perhaps awaiting him once Rozsival is cleared to resume playing.

Cumiskey Signs With Chicago

News: The Blackhawks have signed Kyle Cumiskey to a one-year contract, NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Kyle Cumiskey, who spent the past two seasons with MODO of the Swedish Hockey League, should have a chance to compete for a role on the Chicago blue line in training camp, on the heels of a 2013-14 campaign in which the 27-year-old recorded 28 points in 45 games for MODO.

Cumiskey Signs In Sweden

News: Kyle Cumiskey signed a one-year deal with Modo of the Swedish Elite League on Tuesday, the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Kyle Cumiskey recorded six goals and 23 assists in 57 games for AHL Syracuse in 2011-12. He was rostered by Anaheim a few times, but never saw any major league action.

Ducks Send Cumiskey To Syracuse

News: The Ducks have sent Kyle Cumiskey back to AHL Syracuse, the Ducks' official site reports.
Analysis: Kyle Cumiskey seems to be going up and down from the NHL to the AHL daily. Not the best fantasy option at this stage.

Ducks Recall Cumiskey

News: The Ducks have recalled Kyle Cumiskey, the Ducks' official site reports.
Analysis: Kyle Cumiskey has 16 points and a minus-4 rating in 36 games with AHL Syracuse this season. He will be nothing more than added depth for the Ducks' blue line.

Kyle Cumiskey, D, CHI

Ducks Assign Cumiskey

News: The Ducks have assigned Kyle Cumiskey to AHL Syracuse, the team's official Twitter page reports.
Analysis: The 25-year-old defenseman has recorded a solid 14 points (2G, 12A) in 29 games with the Syracuse Crunch this season. He hasn't seen any NHL action this year, after appearing in 18 contests with the Colorado Avalanche last season. That doesn't figure to change any time soon.

Cumiskey Recalled By Ducks

News: The Ducks have recalled Kyle Cumiskey from AHL Syracuse, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: The former Avalanche blueliner will bolster the Ducks' depth on defense, but Kyle Cumiskey has never had more than 20 points in a season and that won't likely change with the Ducks.

Ducks' Comiskey Headed To AHL

News: Kyle Cumiskey (groin), acquired from the Avalanche in exchange for defenseman Jake Newton and a conditional draft pick on Saturday, cleared waivers and was set to be reassigned to the AHL, the Colorado Springs Gazette reports.
Analysis: The Ducks needed someone with experience they can call upon once Kyle Cumiskey's injury is fully healed, and they're probably one more injury away from needing to do so, so Cumiskey may not be in the AHL for long.

Avs Trade Cumiskey To Ducks

News: The Ducks have acquired Kyle Cumiskey (groin) from the Avalanche in exchange for defenseman Jake Newton and seventh-round draft pick in 2013, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: The Ducks have a host of injuries on the blue line, so they needed to pick up a veteran and Kyle Cumiskey was probably cheap after the Avs placed him on waivers Friday. Cumiskey has never had more than 20 points in a season and that won't change with the Ducks, but once past the groin injury he'll give Anaheim the patch it was looking for and tighten up the injury-plagued defense in front of goaltender Jonas Hiller if he's called upon.

Avs Place Cumiskey On Waivers

News: Kyle Cumiskey has been placed on waivers, Bob McKenzie on Twitter reports.
Analysis: This is a tough break for the 24-year-old, who has been battling a groin injury this preseason. The injury could factor into teams' decisions on whether or not to claim Kyle Cumiskey. The defenseman has played in less than 20 games three of the past five seasons.

Avs Place Cumiskey On IR With Groin Injury

News: Kyle Cumiskey (groin) will start the season on injured reserve, reports the Denver Post.
Analysis: Kyle Cumiskey is still skating in practice but has not yet been cleared for contract drills. He didn't see any game action during the preseason and has to be considered behind the rest of the Avs' defensemen in terms of being prepared for the regular season. Note that Cumiskey has a two-way contract, and it wouldn't surprise us to see him get sent to the AHL as soon as he's cleared to play. Either way, he is not someone you should be targeting for your fantasy roster right now.

Avs' Cumiskey Nursing Sore Groin

News: Kyle Cumiskey is sidelined with a groin injury, reports the Denver Post.
Analysis: Kyle Cumiskey has yet to see any preseason game action and could be on the bubble as a result. Don't be surprised to see him get demoted to AHL Lake Erie, as the Avs have plenty of other healthy options on the blue line to start the season.

Avs' Cumiskey Not Seeing Any Preseason Action

News: Kyle Cumiskey, though healthy, has yet to play in a preseason game, reports the Denver Post.
Analysis: Kyle Cumiskey missed most of last season with concussion problems, but is said to be 100% healthy now. Monitor closely - hopefully coach Joe Sacco will shed some light on why he's keeping Cumiskey on the bench.

Cumiskey Re-Signs With Avs

News: Kyle Cumiskey and the Avalanche have agreed to terms on a new one-year, two-way contract, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Kyle Cumiskey missed most of last season with concussion problems, but was recently cleared to play by the Avs' medical staff and is expected to open training camp with the team next week. Cumiskey posted nine points (1G, 8A) in 18 games last season and if healthy, is a threat to hold down one of the Avs' top four d-man spots this season. He was averaging about two minutes per game on the power play last season prior to his injury, so keep him in mind as a late-round fantasy selection if you need some pop from the blue line.

Avs' Cumiskey Suffers Whiplash, Out Indefinitely

News: Cumiskey has been diagnosed with whiplash and is out indefinitely, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: The injury is even more of a concern considering Cumiskey missed 34 games earlier this season with a concussion. With only 26 games left in the season and the Avs falling further and further out of the playoff race, they will likely be in no hurry to rush Cumiskey back before he's ready. Reserve him immediately and hope for the best.

Avs' Cumiskey Suffers Another Head Injury

News: Cumiskey left Wednesday night's game against the Wild in the first period with a head injury, the Associated Press reports.
Analysis: Cumiskey has already missed 34 games this year due to a concussion.

Avs' Cumiskey To Sit Out Monday Against Coyotes

News: Cumiskey will be healthy scratch for Monday's game against the Coyotes, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Cumiskey has three assists in six games since returning from a concussion last month, but he's also a combined minus-3 over that span, something that probably doesn't sit too well with Avs coach Joe Sacco. Check back for Cumiskey's status for Wednesday's game against Minnesota, and hope he's out of Sacco's doghouse by then.

Two Assists For Avalanche's Cumiskey

News: Cumiskey assisted on two goals against the Blues on Monday.
Analysis: Cumiskey has only a handful of games to his name so far this season, and while he's been decent, he's probably not worth a pickup yet.

Cumiskey Returns For Avs

News: Cumiskey made his return from a concussion Thursday in a loss to Nashville, playing 19 minutes and going minus-2 with two shots on goal.
Analysis: He had been out since sustaining the concussion Oct. 30. Cumiskey had been off to a solid start to the season with five points in 11 games before he was hurt.

Avs' Cumiskey (Concussion) Due To Return Thursday

News: Cumiskey (concussion) will return to the lineup Thursday against Nashville, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Cumiskey was medically cleared to return last week, but his return date was pushed back a couple of times in order for him to work on his conditioning. See how he does his first game back before re-activating him.

Return Date For Avs' Cumiskey Pushed Back

News: Cumiskey (concussion) will not play Tuesday against Vancouver as originally reported, according to the Denver Post.
Analysis: Cumiskey was cleared to play again after suffering a concussion on Oct. 30, and was originally expected to return Tuesday against the Canucks. However, coach Joe Sacco said he wants to give Cumiskey more conditioning time before possibly inserting him into the lineup.

Avs' Cumiskey (Concussion) Due Back Tuesday

News: Cumiskey (concussion) is expected to return to the lineup Tuesday against Vancouver, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: It will be Cumiskey's first game since suffering a concussion Oct. 30. With the Avs' top blueliners -- John-Michael Liles and Kevin Shattenkirk -- struggling to provide much by way of offense these days, you could see Cumiskey wind up with a significant amount of power play time his first couple of games back. Monitor the situation closely.

Cumiskey Nears Return To Avs' Lineup

News: Cumiskey (concussion) completed a full practice Sunday, but will not play Monday against Detroit, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Cumiskey remains day-to-day, but his full practice participation Sunday suggests that his return is near.
