Mike Santorelli, C, NSH Preds' Santorelli Looks To Be Healthy Scratch

Preds' Santorelli Looks To Be Healthy Scratch

News: Mike Santorelli isn't skating on a regular line during warmups and looks to be a healthy scratch Tuesday against the Avalanche, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Mike Santorelli has skated the last two days and appears to be healthy after missing the Preds' previous game with an illness, but the brief absence might have been enough to cost him his lineup spot. He's only produced three points and a minus-5 rating over his 20 games with the Predators since coming over in a Feb. 15 trade.

Preds' Santorelli Back Skating Again

News: Mike Santorelli (illness) practiced Monday and participated in Tuesday's morning skate.
Analysis: Mike Santorelli was made a scratch last Saturday against the Stars due to the illness, but his presence at practice the last two days suggests he's probably fully recovered at this point. He was playing a third-line role for the Predators prior to exiting the lineup, so expect him to slot back in at that spot Tuesday against the Avalanche.

Santorelli Out Sick For Preds

News: Mike Santorelli will miss Saturday's game against the Stars after coming down with an illness.
Analysis: Mike Santorelli has a modest 29 points this season so he might not be heavily used amid a busy Saturday NHL slate. However, the Predators are in a dogfight for playoff positioning so every last depth player helps. Victor Bartley will move from defense to forward to fill the gap for a night.

Preds' Santorelli Pots Goal In Win Over Bolts

News: Mike Santorelli scored the game-winning goal in Thursday's win over Tampa Bay, his first point in 11 games.
Analysis: It was also his first goal since being re-acquired from the Maple Leafs back in February. Mike Santorelli skates mainly on the Preds' third line, so his opportunities to add offense will continue to be limited.

Mike Santorelli, C, NSH Preds' Santorelli Struggling In New Role

Mike Santorelli

Preds' Santorelli Struggling In New Role

News: Mike Santorelli was held off the scoresheet for the fifth straight game during Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Red Wings.
Analysis: Mike Santorelli has not made much of an impact offensively since joining the Preds via trade back in mid-February, however as a bottom-six forward, scoring is not really what he was brought in to do. What he is seeing, however, is regular ice time, something he was not getting during his final weeks in Toronto. Since his arrival in Nashville, he has been averaging 12-13 minutes per game playing on the third line alongside Colin Wilson and Calle Jarnkrok. He is a useful piece of the puzzle as far as the Preds are concerned, but he is unlikely to make much of a fantasy impact down the stretch and into the playoffs.

Santorelli Meets Up With Predators

News: Mike Santorelli (immigration issues) reported to the Predators for Friday's practice.
Analysis: Mike Santorelli slotted in on the third line during the session, joining Matt Cullen and Calle Jarnkrok. Coach Peter Laviolette hasn't confirmed that Santorelli will make his team debut Saturday against the Flyers, but that seems to be a reasonable expectation given his involvement in practice.

Predators' Santorelli Out Again Thursday

News: Mike Santorelli (immigration issues) will not play Thursday against the Islanders.
Analysis: Both Mike Santorelli and Cody Franson, who were acquired from the Maple Leafs on Sunday, will sit for the second straight game due to their paperwork for immigration not being properly processed. Poor weather in the Northeast the last few days has not helped matters on that front, but the issue figures to be resolved in the near future. Still, it's uncertain if both players will be in the fold for the next game of the Preds' road trip Saturday in Philadelphia.

Preds' Santorelli Likely Out Tuesday

News: Coach Peter Laviolette indicated that it's unlikely that Mike Santorelli will be in the lineup Tuesday against the Sharks sue to paperwork issues, NHL.com's Robby Stanley reports.
Analysis: The Preds' official site relays that both Mike Santorelli and defenseman Cody Franson are iffy for Tuesday's game, as both trade acquisitions still have immigration issues to be worked out before they can suit up for their new team. Look for Santorelli's team debut to come Thursday against the Islanders.

Leafs Trade Santorelli To Predators

News: Mike Santorelli was traded from the Maple Leafs to the Predators on Sunday.
Analysis: Mike Santorelli was part of a four-player trade that sent him and Cody Franson to Nashville in a move set to add to the team's depth both at defense and up front. In 57 games this season, Santorelli has posted 29 points (11 goals, 18 assists), and he could be in line for an increase moving forward following the move to a better squad.

Leafs' Santorelli Gets Goal, Assist

News: Mike Santorelli scored a goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Predators.
Analysis: Miracle of miracles -- the Leafs actually scored some goals. Mike Santorelli has been one of the team's few bright spots with 28 points in 52 games. He'll probably be on the move before the deadline and will slot onto a contending team's third line. Santorelli's a depth play in most formats.

Leafs' Santorelli Gets Leafs' Lone Goal

News: Mike Santorelli scored the Leafs' only goal in Saturday's loss to Winnipeg. It's his third goal in his last six games.
Analysis: Those are the only points he's picked up in his last 10, but that could change -- he skated with James Van Riemsdyk to start the game and that could boost his production if that combo continues.

Leafs' "Santo Claus" Nabs Late Goal

News: Mike Santorelli tallied the Leafs' final goal of the night in Tuesday's 4-0 rout of the Stars.
Analysis: The goal came with the Stars running an empty net, but Mike Santorelli will take it after being held without a point over the Leafs' previous four games. Santorelli has looked like one of the savvier pickups during the past offseason, as the forward has accrued seven goals, 23 points and a plus-14 rating over 35 games while carrying just a $1.5 million cap hit.

Leafs' Santorelli Hotter Than A Habanero

News: Mike Santorelli celebrated his 29th birthday with a goal and assist in the Leafs' 4-3 shootout win over the Kings on Sunday night. He has 13 points, including 10 assists, in his last 10 games.
Analysis: Yowza -- this guy is hot to touch. He's playing his way to a huge payday at season's end and has been the Leafs' best player of late. Not bad for a sixth round pick (2004). His point-per-game pace will settle down soon enough, but he's still marching toward a career year. Enjoy the ride.

Santorelli Gets Goal And Assist For Toronto

News: Mike Santorelli scored a goal and added an assist in Thursday's loss to the Devils. The assist came while shorthanded; the points extended his current streak to five games and nine points (one goal, eight assists).
Analysis: He has a remarkable 18 points in 25 games this season, a pace that would see him deliver at least 55 points this season. That makes him a viable fantasy option in most formats. He might be lurking on the wire in some shallow leagues.

Sizzling Streak For Leafs' Santorelli

News: Mike Santorelli delivered three assists Tuesday in a 5-3 win over Dallas. The points have stretched his current streak to four games and seven assists.
Analysis: Holy hotcakes -- he's on fire. He's starting to really click in Toronto and he's showing off a bit of the form that saw him deliver a surprising 28 points in 49 games last season. Check the wire ASAP.

Leafs' Santorelli Picks Up Two Assists

News: Mike Santorelli assisted on two of the Leafs' goals in Wednesday's loss to the Penguins.
Analysis: Mike Santorelli helped out on both of Leo Komarov's tallies, feeding the Russian winger on a 3-on-2 break for his first and collecting a secondary assist on his second. The 28-year-old Santorelli has been a useful depth scorer on the Leafs' second or third line this season, yielding 12 points and a plus-7 rating over 22 games.

Leafs' Santorelli Scores Goal In Blowout Loss

News: Mike Santorelli tallied his third goal of the season in Tuesday's 9-2 loss to the Predators.
Analysis: Mike Santorelli's goal wasn't exactly vital, as it came when the Leafs were already trailing 8-0. Surprisingly, Santorelli was one of two Leafs skaters to finish on the positive side of the plus/minus ledger (plus-1) in the blowout defeat.

Leafs' Santorelli: Two-Point Night On The Island

News: Mike Santorelli picked up two assists in Tuesday's win over the Islanders. He now has four points in seven games this season.
Analysis: He's proving to be a solid contributor in limited minutes. It's not enough to pluck him off the wire just yet, but he may deliver some deep league value at some point.

Leafs Eyeing Santorelli For Shutdown Role

News: Mike Santorelli appears to be in line to replace the tough defensive minutes and matchups that Jay McClement used to absorb for the Leafs, reports TSN.ca.
Analysis: He could certainly push for offensive minutes, but he was used in challenging defensive situations in Vancouver and did a decent job (his Corsi numbers were positive at even-strength). Unfortunately, there isn't much fantasy value in the role of wet blanket, so push him down a little on your cheat sheet.

Leafs Sign Santorelli

News: The Leafs have signed Mike Santorelli to a one-year deal worth $1.5 million, TSN's Darren Dreger reports.
Analysis: Prior to undergoing season-ending surgery to repair a torn shoulder labrum in January, Mike Santorelli recorded 10 goals and 18 assists in 49 games this past season with the Canucks. Assuming his health heading into camp, the 28-year-old will add depth and versatility to the Leafs' forward mix, given that he is able to play both center and wing.

Canucks' Santorelli Out For Season

News: Mike Santorelli (shoulder) underwent season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum, Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: The injury will require five-to-six months of recovery time, putting Mike Santorelli on track to be ready for training camp, but likely costing him a big payday in the process. He'll be an unrestricted free agent in the offseason and may be forced to settle for a short-term deal to reestablish some value. He was in the midst of a breakout season with 10 goals and 18 assists over 49 games.

Canucks Move Santorelli To IR

News: Mike Santorelli has been placed on injured reserve.
Analysis: Mike Santorelli was set to miss his second straight game Tuesday, and it looks like the Canucks won't plan on having him available until the weekend at the earliest. There's no word on the severity of his injury or when he may resume practicing in full.

Canucks' Santorelli Ruled Out Saturday

News: Mike Santorelli (arm) will not play Saturday vs. the Flames, Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada reports.
Analysis: Mike Santorelli was seen with an arm in his sling after Thursday's game and it wouldn't be surprising if he missed further action beyond Saturday. The Canucks will welcome back Alexandre Burrows from IR on Saturday, taking away some of the sting of Santorelli's absence.

Canucks' Santorelli Spotted With Arm In Sling

News: Mike Santorelli had his right arm in a sling following Thursday's loss to the Coyotes, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: Mike Santorelli was recently demoted to the fourth line and is averaging fewer than 15 minutes of ice time over the last four games. The Canucks didn't provide an update on his injury after the game, so owners may want to check back in prior to Saturday's game against the Flames. Santorelli has just one point in eight January contests, after tallying 27 points through his first 41 appearances of the season.

Canucks' Santorelli Scores Game-Winner Friday

News: Mike Santorelli scored his 10th goal of the season, which proved to be the game-winner, against the Blues on Friday.
Analysis: Nothing beats a little motivational nudge from your coach, right? Mike Santorelli put the game-winner in the net the same day he was demoted to the fourth line after failing to register a point in his last five games while posting a disappointing minus-6 rating. He now has 10 goals and 18 assists through 46 games this season.
