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.

Wild Recall Falk

News: Justin Falk was recalled from AHL Iowa on Tuesday, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
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. Falk will enter the lineup Tuesday on the Wild's third pairing.

Wild Send Falk Back To Minors

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.

Justin Falk

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.

Justin Falk

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.
Analysis: The 25-year-old was a fourth-round pick of the Wild in 2007 and appeared in 108 regular season games for the franchise. He spent last season with the Rangers, registering two assists and 20 penalty minutes in 21 contests.

Rangers Will Not Qualify Falk

News: The Rangers are expected to pass on qualifying Justin Falk, reports Larry Brooks of the New York Post. He would become an unrestricted free agent.
Analysis: He is owed $1.025 million on his qualifying offer, but played just once in 2014.

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.

Rangers' Falk: Watching Season From Press Box

News: Justin Falk has not dressed for the Rangers since Dec. 29, as he's served as a healthy scratch over the last two-plus months.
Analysis: Justin Falk has never been considered an attractive fantasy option, and this news only underscores how low his value is. After he rejected head coach Alain Vigneault's offer to play more consistently with AHL Hartford, last week's acquisition of Raphael Diaz almost suggests Falk won't soon have a choice. The 25-year-old defenseman is minus-5 with two assists and 20 penalty minutes through 20 games played this season.

Rangers' Falk Merely A Spectator

News: Head coach Alain Vigneault will stick with the same lineup Thursday against Edmonton, leaving Justin Falk as a healthy scratch again, Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: This should be no surprise and ultimately have very little impact on the fantasy world. Justin Falk, who has not dressed in a game since Dec. 29, is merely a depth defenseman who can provide grit and toughness in case of an injury to one of the team's top-six blueliners.

Justin Falk

Rangers' Falk To Be Scratched Tuesday

News: Justin Falk will watch Tuesday's tilt against the Panthers from the press box, reports Andrew Gross of The Record.
Analysis: With Anton Stralman (wrist) and Marc Staal (concussion) returning to the lineup, someone had to sit. While Justin Falk and Michael Del Zotto are the odd men odd out Tuesday, inconsistent play has left head coach Alain Vigneault juggling lines all season. Outside of the occasional penalty, Falk has very little upside and should be left off nearly every standard fantasy roster.

Justin Falk

Rangers' Falk Healthy Scratched Thursday

News: Justin Falk will not be in the lineup Thursday against the Sabres.
Analysis: John Moore will check in for Justin Falk on the Rangers blue line, as Falk will watch from the press box for the fourth time in the last five games.

Rangers' Falk To Suit Up Wednesday

News: Justin Falk will play in Wednesday's game against the Lightning, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: Justin Falk has been a healthy scratch the last three games, but he will get the nod in place of Michael Del Zotto on Wednesday, with the purpose of adding "bite" to the defensive corps, according to head coach Alain Vigneault.

Justin Falk

Rangers' Falk To Suit Up Tuesday

News: Justin Falk will suit in Tuesday's tilt against the Bruins, reports Steve Zipay of Newsday.
Analysis: It's Justin Falk's third straight game in the lineup, as head coach Alain Vigneault is clearly trying to send a message to Michael Del Zotto. Falk is a minus-1 with 11 PIM in five games thus far, so he has very little fantasy appeal.

Justin Falk

Falk Active In Rangers' Loss

News: Justin Falk logged nearly 16 minutes of ice time on Saturday, collecting two penalty minutes, going minus-1 and tying for the team high with four hits in a 4-0 loss to New Jersey.
Analysis: Justin Falk broke into the lineup earlier in the week when Michael Del Zotto came down with the flu, but Del Zotto was officially listed as a healthy scratch for the Devils game. Although Falk has a propensity for giveaways, he's racking up the penalty minutes, which may or may not bode well for his continued presence in the Rangers' lineup. Head coach Alain Vigneault is likely to plug MDZ back in the lineup next week. Although Falk could dress as a seventh defensemen, he'll likely only dress again if Del Zotto (minus-6, no points) continues to struggle offensively.

Rangers' Falk Will Play Wednesday

News: Justin Falk will be in the lineup Wednesday against the Capitals, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Fellow blueliner Michael Del Zotto is sidelined with the flu, so Justin Falk will be inserted in the lineup for his second start of the season. He played in 36 games last year with the Wild, recording three assists and zero goals.

Falk Makes Debut With Rangers

News: Justin Falk had four penalty minutes and a shot on goal in Saturday's 5-3 loss to St. Louis
Analysis: After signing as a free agent this past summer, Justin Falk's first appearance came five games into the season. Unless a major injury occurs to the Rangers blue line, the newly turned 25-year-old isn't likely to crack the line up often this season. Even then, Falk has limited upside having never eclipsed the 30-point mark in any professional hockey league.

Falk Tabbed As Rangers' Seventh Defenseman

News: Justin Falk was named to the team's Opening Night roster, Jim Cerny of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Nothing to see here, as at no point were the reports from training camp good about the 24-year-old offseason signing. For now, he's with the big club, but pipeline happenings could change that. Either way, Justin Falk is not likely to dress on most nights. He's totaled one goal, 14 assists and 100 penalty minutes in 108 career NHL games.

Rangers Ink Falk

News: The Rangers signed Justin Falk to a one-year, $975,000 contract Wednesday, Katie Strang of ESPN reports.
Analysis: Justin Falk was expected to file for salary arbitration, but the Rangers were able to ink him just before the deadline Wednesday. The blueliner recorded three assists and 40 PIMs in 36 games with the Wild last season.
