Leafs Sign Hunwick

News: Matt Hunwick signed a two-year, $2.4 million deal with the Maple Leafs on Wednesday, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Matt Hunwick, who notched two goals and nine assists to go along with a plus-17 rating in 55 games for the Rangers this past season, adds veteran depth to a Leafs' blue line that also has Dion Phaneuf, Jake Gardiner, Morgan Rielly, Stephane Robidas, Roman Polak and Tim Erixon under contract for the 2015-16 season, but he remains off the fantasy radar in most formats, despite the change of scenery.

Rangers' Hunwick Living On Borrowed Time

News: Matt Hunwick is a plus-1 with four hits and two blocked shots through four playoff games against Pittsburgh.
Analysis: While he's not showing up in the points column, Matt Hunwick's presence was invaluable during Wednesday's Game 4 as he played an integral role in the team's possession and Kevin Hayes' game-winning goal. However, the pending return of Kevin Klein will signal the inevitable end to Hunwick's role with the team as they continue their playoff push.

Rangers' Hunwick Returns Tuesday

News: Matt Hunwick (upper body) will return to the Rangers' lineup Tuesday against the Jets.
Analysis: Matt Hunwick missed Sunday's loss to the Capitals with the injury, but was able to fully participate in the Rangers' gameday skate Tuesday, paving the way for his return. The short absence was fully expected after defenseman Chris Summers was returned to AHL Hartford following Sunday's match.

Matt Hunwick

Rangers' Hunwick (Upper Body) Out Sunday

News: Matt Hunwick (upper body) will not play Sunday.
Analysis: Matt Hunwick is being held out with an undisclosed upper body injury, and he'll be replaced in the lineup by Chris Summers, who the team recalled from AHL Hartford. Hunwick has tallied three points this month, including a goal against Boston on Saturday night.

Rangers' Hunwick Grabs Two Points

News: Matt Hunwick factored into all of his team's scoring, registering a goal and dishing out an assist in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Panthers.
Analysis: Slotting back into the lineup with the injury to Kevin Klein, Matt Hunwick has now logged three multi-point outings this season. It's his first goal of the year though, and brings his point total to just nine points, so his fantasy value is restricted to the deepest of formats.

Matt Hunwick, D, TOR Hunwick Is Still Rangers' Sixth Defenseman

Matt Hunwick

Hunwick Is Still Rangers' Sixth Defenseman

News: Matt Hunwick has gone seven straight games without appearing on the scorer's sheet.
Analysis: While it's no surprise the third pairing defenseman has not registered a point, he does have a plus-2 and nine hits over that span. With eight points (all assists) in 36 games played, the 29-year-old Matt Hunwick is seemingly head coach Alain Vigneault's choice in most contests over seventh defenseman John Moore.

Strangely, Rangers To Sit Hunwick Against Ducks

News: Matt Hunwick will serve as a healthy scratch in Wednesday's tilt with Anaheim, reports Andrew Gross of The Record.
Analysis: This is fairly surprising as Matt Hunwick, who has been alternating with John Moore as the team's seventh defensemen, has an eye-popping seven points (two goals) in 12 career games against the Ducks. While Hunwick (eight points in 29 games) is still out-producing Moore (three points in 23 games) it appears the carousel continues for the pair of American blue liners.

Rangers' Hunwick Seeing Change In Direction

News: Matt Hunwick served as a healthy scratch in Monday's 4-3 overtime victory over Pittsburgh.
Analysis: After the 29-year-old saw his ice time dip under 12 minutes last Saturday against the Red Wings and spent Monday's game in the press box, it appears John Moore has the upper hand on the final defenseman spot right now. However, with seven assists in 23 games, Matt Hunwick has outproduced Moore (who owns three points in 19 games) when given the chance.

Rangers' Hunwick Dishes Out Two In Win

News: Matt Hunwick assisted on two goals in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime victory over the Red Wings.
Analysis: Matt Hunwick was named the game's second star for his efforts and has now compiled three assists over his last two contests. He'll continue to enjoy a regular role in the New York lineup while all of John Moore (suspension), Dan Boyle (hand) and Ryan McDonagh (shoulder) remain unavailable.

Rangers' Hunwick Chipping In

News: Matt Hunwick registered an assist in Monday's 4-3 loss the Blues.
Analysis: Matt Hunwick, who started the evening paired with bruiser Dylan McIlrath, is managing to piece some points together. The former seventh round pick (Boston, 2004) has collected all three of his season total three points in the last three games. While we can't guarantee it will continue, he's likely to continue getting time on the power play, where tallied Monday's assist to help open the scoring.

Rangers' Hunwick Grabs First Two Points

News: Matt Hunwick tallied two assists in Monday's 5-4 win over the Wild.
Analysis: Though Mike Kostka received the first crack at claiming a regular role on defense in the wake of Dan Boyle's move to IR earlier this month due to a broken hand, Matt Hunwick has since solidified himself on the Rangers' third pairing. The two points Monday were the first Hunwick has scored in his seven games, and it wouldn't seem likely that he'll get much of an opportunity to contribute offensively. Instead, the team will count on Hunwick simply to play mistake-free hockey in his own zone.

Hunwick To Play For Rangers On Saturday

News: Matt Hunwick could dress in Columbus on Saturday, reports Andrew Gross of The Record.
Analysis: The Bruins' seventh-round pick in the 2004 draft remained with the team after training camp as the team's seventh defensemen and will be ushered into action just one game into the season. After a solid rookie campaign (27 points in 53 games) with the Bruins, the 29-year-old has since collected 10 goals and 29 assists in parts of five seasons with Boston and Colorado.

Rangers Ink Hunwick For Defensive Depth

News: Matt Hunwick signed a one-year, $600,000 contract with the Rangers on Tuesday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
Analysis: After accounting for 10 goals and 21 assists over 52 games with AHL Lake Erie last season, Matt Hunwick will give the Rangers some depth at either the NHL or AHL level. Even if he emerges with a spot on the parent club out of training camp, he'll probably either be a healthy scratch or see light minutes on the third pairing most nights.

Avs' Hunwick Sent Down

News: Matt Hunwick was reassigned to AHL Lake Eerie on Thursday, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Matt Hunwick skated more than 17 minutes against the Panthers last Saturday in his lone game with the Avs this season. He's bounced up and down between levels a couple times already, and will probably do so several more times before the end of the year.

Matt Hunwick

Avs' Hunwick Assigned To AHL

News: Matt Hunwick was re-assigned to AHL Lake Erie on Saturday.
Analysis: With Ryan Wilson back from injured reserve, Matt Hunwick was sent out to create room. He didn't appear in any of the Avs' three games prior to his demotion and will be paid $1.6 million this season to play in the minors.

Colorado Waives Hunwick

News: Colorado placed Matt Hunwick on waivers Friday, the Denver Post's Adrian Dater reports.
Analysis: Matt Hunwick played in 43 games last season, mostly on the third defensive pair, but he has yet to appear in a game for the Avalanche this season. If he goes unclaimed, the Avs can assign him to the AHL if they choose.

Avs' Hunwick Will Play Thursday

News: Matt Hunwick (upper body) will be in the lineup Thursday against the Wild, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: The blueliner will return to action Thursday after missing the last couple games due to an upper body injury. Even though Matt Hunwick is second on the team in TOI per game, he has zero points in seven games so far this season.

Avs' Hunwick Returns To Practice Wednesday

News: Matt Hunwick (torso) returned to practice Wednesday and is expected to play Thursday against the Wild.
Analysis: Matt Hunwick has missed the last two games with an upper body injury but appears ready to give it a go Thursday. Hunwick is expected to take the place of injured Erik Johnson on the top defensive pairing. Hunwick has yet to record a point in seven games thus far, but will have additional opportunities with Johnson out.

Avs' Hunwick Sidelined

News: Matt Hunwick (torso) did not practice Sunday and won't play Monday against the Coyotes, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Through seven games, Matt Hunwick has yet to record a point, so this nugget affects the Avs' blue line depth more than it does fantasy owners.

Avs' Hunwick A Healthy Scratch Wednesday

News: Matt Hunwick will not play Wednesday against the Canucks, the Avalanche's official Twitter account reports.
Analysis: Matt Hunwick has skated 20-plus minutes in each of the team's last three games, but he'll sit Wednesday as a healthy scratch.

Hunwick Finally Sticking In Avs' Lineup

News: The Avs' coaching staff have been pleased with Matt Hunwick's play of late, according to the Denver Post.
Analysis: They must be; Matt Hunwick played his seventh consecutive game Tuesday against Minnesota, the first time he's played that many games in a row all season. He's also notched two goals over that stretch, along with a combined plus-4 rating. It will probably take one or two bad games in a row for Hunwick to get swapped out of the lineup at this point - play him if you own him.

Avs' Hunwick Toiling In Obscurity

News: Matt Hunwick sat out Wednesday's 4-1 win over Los Angeles, his seventh consecutive game as a healthy scratch.
Analysis: With a grand total of just 12 games played so far this season, compared to 51 last year, this will go down as a lost season for Matt Hunwick. He continues to be the odd man out on an Avs' blue line dominated by larger, more physical players such as Jan Hejda and Ryan O'Byrne, as well as younger, up-and-coming players like Stefan Elliott. Hunwick is set to become an unrestricted free agent after this season and will almost certainly be looking for a new team to play for come July 1.

Hunwick Having Trouble Cracking Avs' Lineup

News: Matt Hunwick was a healthy scratch in seven consecutive games leading up to the All-Star break.
Analysis: It's hard to recommend a guy when he's watching from the press box every night. The Avs have eight healthy defensemen on the roster at the moment, and unfortunately for Matt Hunwick, he's low man on the totem pole. He shouldn't be on anyone's roster right now.

Matt Hunwick

Rare Start Tuesday For Avs' Hunwick

News: Matt Hunwick will take the place of Erik Johnson (hand) when the Avs take on the Predators on Tuesday, reports the Denver Post.
Analysis: Matt Hunwick is the low man on the Avs' d-man totem pole this season, and will most certainly return to being a healthy scratch once Johnson is ready to return to the lineup. With just a single assist in only 10 games so far this year, Hunwick's fantasy value is about as close to zero as it can get.

Matt Hunwick

No Room In Lineup For Avs' Hunwick

News: Following a stretch that saw him play six consecutive games, Matt Hunwick is back to being a healthy scratch. He sat out his third straight game Monday against Los Angeles.
Analysis: The only real knock against Matt Hunwick is his size; at 5'11" and 190 lbs, he is the odd man out on an Avs blue line chock full of bigger guys like Shane O'Brien, Jan Hejda and Ryan O'Byrne. Hunwick is defensively responsible but doesn't play enough to give him any real fantasy value.
