Ducks Recall Bell

News: The Ducks recalled Mark Bell from AHL Syracuse on Friday, according to the team's official Twitter page.

Ducks' Bell Sent To Syracuse

News: The Ducks have assigned Mark Bell to Syracuse (AHL), the Ducks' official site reports.

Bell Signs With Ducks

News: Bell has signed a one-year contract with the Ducks, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: Bell spent the past two years with Kloten in Switzerland's top league, scoring 29 goals and 52 points in 80 games over the span. The former No. 8 overall pick will now attempt a comeback with the Ducks, but given his how his production tailed off in his last couple of NHL seasons, take a wait-and-see approach.

Flyers release veteran Bell

News: The Flyers released veteran forward Mark Bell on Monday. He was in camp on a tryout basis. He had one assist in two preseason games.
Analysis: Bell, 29, scored a career-high 25 goals with the Blackhawks in 2005-06, but has struggled to get his career untracked after pleading no contest to a hit-and-run motor vehicle accident three years ago that required him to work in a California prison for 11 weeks. The eighth pick overall in the 1998 NHL draft, Bell spent all of last season in the AHL, netting 18 goals in 74 games for the Toronto Marlies and Hartford Wolf Pack. Until he is back in the NHL full time, he has no Fantasy appeal.

Flyers to give Bell a long look

News: The Sports Xchange reports Flyers forward Danny Briere will make the switch from center to right wing, but with the losses of Mike Knuble and Joffrey Lupul, it's pretty thin after that at right wing. Feisty forwards Daniel Carcillo and Arron Asham can play the right side and the Flyers will give training camp invitee Mark Bell a good look as well.
Analysis: Bell, 29, scored a career-high 25 goals with the Blackhawks in 2005-06, but has struggled to get his career untracked after pleading no contest to a hit-and-run motor vehicle accident three years ago that required him to work in a California prison for 11 weeks. The eighth pick overall in the 1998 NHL draft, Bell spent all of last season in the AHL, netting 18 goals in 74 games for the Toronto Marlies and Hartford Wolf Pack. Even if Bell makes the Flyers' roster, as a lower-line forward, he is going to have marginal Fantasy appeal Draft Day.

Bell headed back to AHL

News: Mark Bell is headed back to the American Hockey League. The New York Rangers have assigned the 28-year-old forward to Hartford. Bell was claimed off waivers from the Toronto Maple Leafs last Wednesday and didn't appear in a game for the Rangers.
Analysis: Bell appeared in 56 games for the AHL's Toronto Marlies this season before being claimed off waivers. The former first-round draft pick has played 445 career NHL games with Chicago, San Jose and Toronto. He has 87 goals and 182 points. Bell is not worth owning in Fantasy at this time.

Bell signed by Rangers

News: TheRangers picked up forward Mark Bell off re-entry waivers from the Maple Leafs on Wednesday. The rest of his $2.5 million contract will be split between the Rangers and Leafs. Bell, who played in the AHL with the Toronto Marlies this season, will be an unrestricted free agent this summer.
Analysis: The 28-year-old player arrived in Toronto from San Jose as part of the Vesa Toskala trade at the NHL draft in 2007. He was suspended 15 games by the league after pleading no contest to drunk driving and hit-and-run charges in California in 2007. In 445 career games with Chicago, San Jose and Toronto, he has 87 goals and 182 points. Bell is not worth owning in Fantasy yet and likely won't be this season.

Bell has six January goals in AHL

News: Maple Leafs minor leaguer Mark Bell has been on a scoring surge for Toronto of the AHL in January. He opened the month with three goals in his first two games, but then went without a score over the next three games. He has started to heat up again, however, with a goal in three straight games. He has 10 goals, 12 assists and a minus-3 rating in 42 games this season.
Analysis: Bell was banished to the AHL in October and hasn't been back up since. Bell once had a burgeoning career, but then a few personal mishaps got him off track and now he is desperately trying to prove his worth. Until Bell makes it back to the show, he has no Fantasy value.

Three Leafs clear waivers, sent to AHL

News: Maples Leafs RW Mark Bell, LW Boyd Devereaux and D Staffan Kronwall have all cleared waivers and will start the season with the Toronto Marlies (AHL).
Analysis: Bell has 20-goal potential, but now finds himself useless in Fantasy play as he has no NHL job. Devereaux and Kronwall can continue to be ignored.

News: The Toronto Maple Leafs placed RW Mark Bell on waivers Monday.
Analysis: Bell had a career-high 48 points and 25 goals in 2005-06 with the Blackhawks. He played in only 35 games last season with Toronto due to injury and had 10 points (four goals). Bell has 20-goal potential, but now finds himself useless in Fantasy play as he has no NHL job.

Bell ready to showcase new image

News: The Sports Xchange reports Maple Leafs RW Mark Bell completed an 11-week daily work program at a California correctional facility on Aug. 15 and flew home to Ontario to prepare for training camp. The sentence stemmed from an alcohol-related felony hit and run near San Jose in September of 2006. Bell spent time among some hardened criminals and drug addicts, but said the experience humbled him. He said on various occasions while with the Leafs last year that he had stopped drinking. "I just kept thinking of the good things in my life, my family, my friends, things like that," Bell said. "I'm very blessed. I'm still relatively young. I'm only 28. My life is still ahead of me."
Analysis: Bell returns to a Leaf team now coached by his ex-Sharks' boss, Ron Wilson. "Physically and mentally, I'm the best I've been in two years," Bell said. "(Wilson) never saw the real Bell in San Jose. I have a lot to prove, not only to the Leafs and their fans, but to myself." Bell had just 10 goals and 21 points in his lone season with San Jose in 2006-07. It came after a career-high 48 points and 25 goals in 2005-06 with the Blackhawks. He played in only 35 games last season with Toronto due to injury and had 10 points (four goals). Bell has 20-goal potential, but remains nothing more than a low-end Fantasy forward heading into 2008-09.

Bell back after 31-game absence

News: Mark Bell returned to the Maple Leafs lineup Saturday against the Sabres after missing 31 games while recovering from a broken orbital bone. He wore a full facemask and didn't record a point in 11:59 of ice time. He finished at minus-2.
Analysis: Bell had some decent point totals earlier in his career, but hasn't been as good as player when he left Chicago after the 2005-06 season. He is merely a low-end Fantasy flier or player to use in leagues that reward heavily for PIM when healthy.

News: The Toronto Maple Leafs announced Thursday that F Mark Bell underwent successful surgery Wednesday to repair facial fractures. He is expected to be out of the lineup for the next eight weeks.

Analysis: The injury kept Bell out of Saturday's game against the Flyers. Bell had some decent point totals earlier in his career, but hasn't been as good as player when he left Chicago after the 2005-06 season. He is merely a low-end Fantasy flier or player to use in leagues that reward heavily for PIM when healthy.

Bell gives puck to ailing nephew

News: Mark Bell's first goal with the Toronto Maple Leafs is about to mean a whole lot more to a little boy named Joey. Bell's goal helped the Leafs beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-2 Saturday. After the game, Bell said he will give the puck to his 5-year-old nephew in Ontario. "He's a little guy fighting for his life every day," Bell said. "He wears my jersey every game. He's got a home and away jersey. He'll love it." Joey, the son of Bell's sister, has always been in a wheelchair. "They gave him four weeks to live and he's 5 now and will be 6 soon," Bell said. "It puts things in perspective when you go home and see the little guy. I go see him every chance I get."
Analysis: Bell scored his first NHL goal against Patrick Roy six years ago. His career best is 25 goals in the 2005-06 season with Chicago. He came to Toronto along with goalie Vesa Toskala in an offseason trade with San Jose and was looking for a fresh start. "This is right up there," he said. "Scoring a goal for the Toronto Maple Leafs is a pretty special thing." Bell was arrested last September and pleaded no contest to drunken driving. He's due to spend up to six months in a California jail after the season. He has one goal and two assists in his last seven games. He is still nothing more than a low-end Fantasy flier.

Analysis: Bell was elevated to the Leafs' first line against Montreal Tuesday despite failing to score in his first nine games with the team. He's worth considering in leagues that reward heavily for penalty minutes.

Mark Bell ready for debut

News: Forward Mark Bell will make his debut for the Maple Leafs on Tuesday at Ottawa after completing a suspension for a drinking and driving incident.

"I've definitely been thinking about it a lot lately, I anticipate little butterflies," Bell said after practice Monday. "Just more excitement than anything."
Analysis: The discipline stemmed from a drinking and driving incident in San Jose, where Bell played for the Sharks last year. He and Kyle Wellwood (sports hernia), who is also making his debut, are expected to skate on the same line. He is a worth a low-end Fantasy flier and he's worth considering in leagues that reward heavily for penalty minutes.

Bell's suspension down to three games

News: The Sports Xchange reports there are now only three games remaining in Maple Leafs LW Mark Bell's league suspension stemming from a 2006 alcohol-related hit-and-run incident in San Jose.

Analysis: Bell had a rough season with the Sharks last season coming off two very successful seasons with the Blackhawks. When he returns to action, he will become a low-end Fantasy flier and someone to consider in leagues that reward heavily for penalty minutes.

Mark Bell suspended 15 games

News: Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mark Bell was suspended for 15 games without pay Wednesday by the NHL after his plea last month of no contest to drunken driving and hit-and-run charges. "Playing in the National Hockey League is a privilege, and with that privilege comes a corresponding responsibility for exemplary conduct off the ice as well as on it," commissioner Gary Bettman said. Bell is in Stage 2 of the NHL's substance abuse program. He was suspended indefinitely Sept. 4, and the suspension will start once he's cleared to return by the program's doctors. The doctors also will determine what, if any, activities Bell can participate in when Toronto opens training camp Thursday.
Analysis: Bell was arrested in September 2006 after his sedan rear-ended a pickup truck in Milpitas, Calif., in the San Jose foothills. Bell is expected to serve six months in a California jail, beginning after this season. Santa Clara County prosecutor Cindy Seeley Hendrickson said Bell could complete the sentence over the next two offseasons under the agreement, which has yet to be entered in court. The Maple Leafs acquired Bell in June along with goalie Vesa Toskala in a trade with the San Jose Sharks. Right now, he is only worth a look in the deepest of Fantasy leagues on Draft Day in the late rounds, but be prepared to reserve him.
