Westgarth To Try Out With Oilers

News: Kevin Westgarth signed a professional tryout with the Oilers and will join the team for training camp, NHL.com's Aaron Vickers reports.
Analysis: Kevin Westgarth is nothing more than a checking-line pugilist, giving him value primarily in leagues that count penalty minutes. He'll first have to impress the Oilers in training camp before he gets the opportunity to reprise his enforcer role.

Flames' Westgarth Scores Rare Goal Friday

News: Kevin Westgarth scored just his third goal of the season during the Flames come-from-behind victory over the Rangers on Friday.
Analysis: The 30-year-old minor league veteran couldn't have found a better time to score as he potted the game-tying goal late in the second period. He now has two goals and one assist over his last four games giving him a whopping total of six points over 40 games this season.

Flames' Westgarth Returning Wednesday

News: Kevin Westgarth (head) will return to the lineup Wednesday against the Ducks, the Calgary Herald reports.
Analysis: Kevin Westgarth suffered the injury on March 1 during a fight with the Oilers' Luke Gazdic, but will draw back into the lineup Wednesday. The winger has one goal, one assist, and 41 PIM in 32 games to date.

Flames' Westgarth Likely To Resume Action Soon

News: Kevin Westgarth (head) is considered very close to returning, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Analysis: After skating in a regular jersey at Monday's morning session, Kevin Westgarth could return to action as early as Wednesday's game vs. the Ducks if all continues to go well in his recovery over the next couple of days. Westgarth will miss his fifth game in a row Monday with the head injury.

Flames' Westgarth Returning To Calgary

News: Kevin Westgarth (head) is returning to Calgary to undergo concussion protocol, the Calgary Herald reports.
Analysis: Kevin Westgarth was knocked out in a fight Saturday and will likely be out for the near future. As an enforcer with quite a few fights under his belt, the Flames don't want to take any chances with a head injury.

Flames' Westgarth Hurt In Tussle

News: Kevin Westgarth was injured in a first-period fight with Edmonton's Luke Gazdic in Saturday night's game. He was taken to the dressing room and didn't return to the ice.
Analysis: There's not much information about the severity of the injury, so the wisest course is probably to bench him until he gets a game under his belt.

Flames' Westgarth Not Always In Lineup

News: Kevin Westgarth has a goal and an assist in 30 games so far this season.
Analysis: The winger doesn't score much, but he has added 36 PIM as well. Considering that he's not an everyday player, it's probably wise to stay clear of him outside of the deepest fantasy leagues.

Calgary's Westgarth Gets First Goal

News: Kevin Westgarth netted his first goal of the season in a 3-2 loss to the Sharks on Monday.
Analysis: Kevin Westgarth followed up his game misconduct two seconds into Saturday's game with a surprising burst of offense. He isn't in Calgary for his scoring, however, as in 11 games he's averaging less than 10 minutes per contest and has 28 penalty minutes to show for it.

Canes Trade Westgarth To Flames

News: Kevin Westgarth has been traded from Carolina to Calgary in exchange for forward Greg Nemisz, TSN's Darren Dreger reports.
Analysis: A healthy scratch in every contest since Dec. 10, Kevin Westgarth may have an opportunity for more playing time in his new home. He hasn't scored a point in 12 appearances this season, and has just nine points (three goals) through 133 career games.

Westgarth Riding Pine For Canes

News: Kevin Westgarth has been a healthy scratch the last two games.
Analysis: With the recent return of Alexander Semin (concussion) to the lineup, Kevin Westgarth is looking like the odd man out in Raleigh for the time being. With zero points in 12 games this season, he doesn't merit much fantasy consideration anyway.

Canes' Westgarth: Two-Game Suspension

News: Kevin Westgarth was handed a two-game suspension Tuesday as a result of his illegal hit on Ottawa's Mark Borowiecki during Sunday's game, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: As a light-scoring fourth-liner, Kevin Westgarth is a rather expendable player the Canes can afford to be without for a couple games. The winger will be eligible to return Sunday against the Canucks.

Canes' Westgarth Faces Disciplinary Action

News: Kevin Westgarth is scheduled to have a hearing Tuesday for his hit on Ottawa defenseman Mark Borowiecki on Sunday, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Kevin Westgarth was penalized for boarding following the hit, while Borowiecki was helped off the ice and did not return to the game. With just nine points over the past four seasons combined, Westgarth is a marginal NHL player at best, and his absence shouldn't cause fantasy owners any undue stress.

Canes' Westgarth To Play Saturday

News: Kevin Westgarth (upper body) will play Saturday vs. the Bruins, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Kevin Westgarth has practiced for a few days now and appears set to rejoin the lineup as a member of the fourth line with Manny Malhotra and Drayson Bowman. He last suited up Oct. 28 against the Penguins, missing 10 games since that time.

Canes' Westgarth Puts In Another Practice

News: Kevin Westgarth (upper body) practiced again for the Hurricanes on Tuesday, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Kevin Westgarth is now taking part in full-contact work after being limited most of last week. The forward has missed the past nine games with the injury, but could be on track to return later this week.

Canes' Westgarth Practices Thursday

News: Kevin Westgarth (upper body) was a non-contact participant in Thursday's practice, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Coach Kirk Muller characterized Kevin Westgarth as day-to-day, so it seems plausible that he could return to the lineup next week if he gets a full practice in before the weekend comes to a close. Westgarth was quite often a healthy scratch for games before sustaining the injury, so it's more likely than not he makes a minimal impact once he's cleared to reenter the lineup.

Canes' Westgarth Expected Back Shortly

News: Kevin Westgarth (upper body) is expected to return to action in a few days, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Kevin Westgarth has sat out the last five games due to the injury. He's typically a fourth-liner or a healthy scratch on nights when he's active anyway, so there's not much incentive for the 'Canes to rush the winger back into the lineup.

Canes' Westgarth To Miss Next Two Games

News: Kevin Westgarth will miss the next two games with an upper-body injury, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News and Observer reports.
Analysis: Kevin Westgarth appears to be eyeing a return Tuesday against Philadelphia. In the meantime, the 'Canes may dress an extra defenseman in his place.

Hurricanes' Westgarth Notches Two Goals

News: Kevin Westgarth lit the lamp twice against the Penguins on Saturday.
Analysis: Kevin Westgarth tallied four points in the last three games of the season. However, those were his only four points all year. It was just an odd aberrational run to end the year.

Carolina's Westgarth A Healthy Scratch

News: Kevin Westgarth was a healthy scratch in Saturday's loss to Florida.
Analysis: He joined the team only a week ago in a trade from the Kings, so it may take awhile until he can find consistent ice time.

Hurricanes Get Westgarth

News: The Hurricanes have acquired Kevin Westgarth from the Kings for Anthony Stewart, a 2013 fourth-round draft pick and a sixth-round choice in the 2014 draft, the team's official site reports. "We were looking for a character, team guy who can play a gritty role for our team," said GM Jim Rutherford. "Kevin is a good addition to fill that spot."
Analysis: Kevin Westgarth played 25 games with Los Angeles last season, recording two points and 39 penalty minutes. He's only of note in fantasy formats where PIMs are at a premium.

Kings' Westgarth A Healthy Scratch For Saturday's Game

News: Kevin Westgarth will not be in the lineup for Saturday's game at Carolina, Rich Hammond reports.
Analysis: Kevin Westgarth barely sees the ice even when he is active and does not need to be on your radar right now.
