Jackets' Falk Contributes Two Points In Win

News: Justin Falk scored a goal and added an assist in 13:23 of ice time in Friday's win over New Jersey.
Analysis: Justin Falk has contributed fantasy wise in two games with his new team, notching five PIM and five shots on goal. While he's not known much for his offense, Falk could put up some decent fantasy numbers in Columbus depending on his role. While he isn't seeing any power-play time, if Faulk can continue seeing decent minutes overall, he could be worth checking out in very deep leagues.

Newly Acquired Falk To Stick With Blue Jackets

News: Justin Falk, who was acquired from the Wild prior to Monday's trade deadline, will stick with the Blue Jackets rather than reporting to AHL Springfield, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: With the Blue Jackets shipping out two blueliners at the deadline (James Wisniewski and Jordan Leopold), an opening will exist for Justin Falk to stick with the parent club, likely for the rest of the season. He's expected to be in the lineup Tuesday against the Capitals, but don't expect him to deliver much use as a likely third-pairing defender. He was held without a point and put 10 shots on goal in his 13 games with the Wild earlier this season.

Wild Deal Falk To Columbus In Deadline Trade

News: The Blue Jackets acquired Justin Falk and a 2015 fifth-round pick Monday in exchange for defenseman Jordan Leopold, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The 26-year-old was held without a point in his 13 games with the Wild earlier this season and hasn't shown much scoring ability at the minor-league level, either. Justin Falk is expected to report to AHL Springfield with his new organization, though it's possible that he may be added to the parent club at some point to serve as a depth defenseman.

News: Justin Falk was reassigned to AHL Iowa on Sunday.

Wild's Falk Assigned To AHL Iowa On Sunday

News: Justin Falk was assigned to AHL Iowa on Sunday.
Analysis: Justin Falk has spent time in both Minnesota and Iowa this season. However, he's only made three NHL appearances this year and will be sent down to the AHL so he can get some work on the ice to be better prepared if there's an emergency situation in Minnesota.

Wild Reassign Falk

News: Justin Falk was reassigned to AHL Iowa on Friday, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Justin Falk's demotion would appear to signal that the Wild plan on having one or both of Jonas Brodin (general soreness) and Christian Folin (illness) available for Saturday's game against the Stars. The 26-year-old Falk appeared in two games during his brief stay with the Wild, compiling a plus-1 rating.

Analysis: With Jonas Brodin (general soreness) unavailable for Tuesday's game against the Bruins, the Wild recalled blueliners Justin Falk and Stu Bickel and moved Keith Ballard (illness) and Christian Folin (illness) to IR, giving the team some much-needed healthy bodies on defense.

News: Justin Falk was assigned to AHL Iowa on Friday, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Justin Falk was recalled by the Wild on Wednesday after the team waived him early in the week, but that was only to provide an extra body on defense for Thursday's preseason loss to the Blues. He's expected to remain at the AHL level for the bulk of the campaign.

Wild Recall Falk

News: Justin Falk was recalled from AHL Iowa on Wednesday, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: A handful of players were added for depth ahead of Thursday's exhibition with St. Louis, leaving the team with one extra skater. Presumably, a defenseman will be scratched, and even if it isn't Justin Falk, he'll likely just head back down after the game.

Wild's Falk To Waivers

News: The Wild have placed Justin Falk on waivers.
Analysis: The big defender's return to the Wild will be less ceremonious than he'd probably hoped. He'll start the season in the AHL. For fantasy, that means he will not be relevant until he gets a call-up and is able to make it stick.

Wild Sign Falk To One-Year Deal

News: Justin Falk signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Wild on Friday, NHL.com reports.

Rangers Will Not Qualify Falk

Rangers' Falk Along for Ride

News: Justin Falk has not dressed for game action in nearly two months.
Analysis: The last time the 25-year-old Manitoba native suited up was April 12 against Montreal. Even with third-line defenseman John Moore suspended, Raphael Diaz got the nod from head coach Alain Vigneault to play in the game six against Montreal. Formerly Minnesota's fourth-round selection in 2007, Justin Falk posted two points (both assists) and a minus-5 rating in 21 regular season games with the blueshirts and will not likely be called upon unless there's a dire need for help on the blue line.

Falk Remains Rangers' Healthy Scratch

News: Justin Falk served as a healthy scratch in Thursday's game one win over Philadelphia.
Analysis: Not a big surprise here, as Justin Falk has been the odd man out for most of the season. With the recently acquired Raphael Diaz ahead of him on the depth chart, unless multiple defensemen fall prey to an injury it seems very likely Falk will have to watch his team's playoff run from the press box.
