Bolts, Malone Part Ways: Winger Becomes UFA

News: The Lightning have bought out Ryan Malone's contract, reports TSN.ca. The winger now becomes an unrestricted free agent.
Analysis: The Bolts are on the hook for two-thirds of his remaining contract, spread out over twice the time remaining on that deal. He had one year and $2.5 million left, but the move frees up $4.5 million on the cap. He's 34 and appears to be in decline, but he would be appealing to a team that needs a depth power forward who can stand in front of the net on the power play.

Malone A Target For Buyout By Bolts

News: Ryan Malone (off-ice issues) is a likely target for a compliance buyout, reports Joe Smith of the Tampa Times. The buyout period started at midnight Saturday night and ends June 30.
Analysis: He has struggled mightily with injuries -- the past two seasons, he appeared in a combined 81 games -- and now there are off-ice issues related to the DUI/possession charges from April. A buyout would save the team $4.5 million against the cap by spreading two-thirds of his $2.5 million salary ($1.67 million) over the remaining two seasons on the deal.

Bolts' Malone (Off-Ice Issues) Pleads Not Guilty

News: Ryan Malone (off-ice issues) has pleaded not guilty to driving under the influence (DUI) and cocaine possession charges, according to the Tampa Bay Times. The charges stem from an arrest on April 12 in Tampa.
Analysis: No trail date has been set. Ryan Malone faces up to five years in prison for the cocaine charge and six months for the DUI. He remains under evaluation by the substance abuse and behaviorial health program that is run jointly by the NHL and NHLPA.

Bolts' Malone: League Action/Suspension Looming

News: Ryan Malone (off-ice issues) is "subject to mandatory evaluation" under the terms of the NHL/NHLPA Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health Program (SABH), according to a statement from the NHL. "His future playing status, both in the near term and during the [Stanley Cup] Playoffs, will be determined in accordance the terms of our SABH Program."
Analysis: Ryan Malone was arrested and charged Saturday morning with DUI and possession of cocaine after a traffic stop in Tampa. An officer saw Malone's SUV strike a curb after making a left turn from the center lane. Malone was stopped and he got out of the vehicle, and that's when the arresting officer smelled alcohol on his breath. Malone refused field sobriety tests and when he was searched, police found 1.3 grams of cocaine in one of his pockets. His blood alcohol level was tested twice at the police station with results of 0.112 and 0.116 (0.08 is the legal limit). Suffice to say this might be the nail in his coffin this season and maybe next season, too. His ice time has been diminishing already and his on-ice value has been in decline.

Lightning's Malone Arrested

News: Malone was arrested early Saturday in Tampa on charges of driving under the influence and possession of cocaine, ESPN.com reports. Said Lightning GM Steve Yzerman: "We are aware of the situation concerning Ryan Malone this morning. Ryan will not travel with the team to Washington today, but beyond that we cannot comment further at this time."
Analysis: The team plays Sunday, so Ryan Malone is obviously out for the regular-season finale, and his playoff status is in question, though we'll see what the investigation reveals. The police report did not provide any other details as of now.

Bolts' Malone Notches Two Assists Wednesday

News: Ryan Malone gathered two assists in Wednesday's win over the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: He was credited with finding Steven Stamkos for his third goal of the night and passed to Tyler Johnson for his 22nd of the season in the third period. The injury bug hasn't quite bitten Ryan Malone as hard as in seasons past, but with only 14 points in 49 games, he's barely on the radar in most leagues these days.

Bolts' Malone Racking Up PIM

News: Ryan Malone has five goals and seven assists in 42 games at the Olympic break.
Analysis: The winger plays mostly a depth role on the Bolts' fourth line, but has proven that he isn't afraid to drop the gloves. He has 53 PIM on the year, and should continue to rack up penalties when the season continues.

Bolts' Malone: First Assist Since October

News: Ryan Malone picked up his first assist since October in Sunday's win over Carolina. It's just his third point in 11 games since his return from injury.
Analysis: Ryan Malone is a very old 34 year old and that sound you hear is the air leaking out of his fantasy value.

Bolts' Malone: Tallies Two In Victory

News: Ryan Malone tallied two goals in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Flyers.
Analysis: The goals marked Ryan Malone's first points since returning from injured reserve Jan. 1, ending a five-game drought. His presence on the fourth line probably has a lot to do with his lack of productivity, but perhaps he'll be rewarded with more ice time after Saturday's performance.

Bolts' Malone: Minus-2 In Return From Injury

News: Ryan Malone (foot) was minus-2 with one hit and a minus-1 rating in 9:24 of action in Tuesday's win over Vancouver. He had not played since Nov. 22.
Analysis: He has pretty much ceased to be a consistent fantasy performer, what with all of the injuries he has piled up over that last few years. We can't recommend him, but we understand that he might seem like a shiny trinket on the wire. Don't take the bait.

Lightning's Malone Returning Wednesday

News: Ryan Malone (foot) will play Wednesday against the Canucks.
Analysis: With Ryan Malone back, Tom Pyatt and BJ Crombeen will both head to the press box, as coach Jon Cooper goes with 11 forwards and seven defenseman for Wednesday's tilt. Malone has not played since Nov. 22 due to the broken foot.

Bolts' Malone Receives Clearance To Play

News: Ryan Malone (foot) has received clearance to return to game action, Damian Cristodero of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: With Ryan Malone increasing his involvement in practice in recent days, it seems likely that he'll be available for Wednesday's game against the Canucks if the Bolts decide to go ahead and activate him. Injuries have diminished Malone's effectiveness over the last few seasons, so even with his return looming, he can't be counted on to provide a dramatic boost to the Tampa Bay attack.

Bolts' Malone Returns To Practice

News: Ryan Malone (foot) participated in Friday's practice, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Ryan Malone wasn't wearing a red non-contact jersey during the session, which could signal that he's closing in on a return to game action. The Lightning have previously said that they expect Malone back in the lineup in early January.

Bolts' Malone: Could Return Early January

News: Ryan Malone (ankle) put in an extensive, on-ice conditioning workout Saturday and could return by early next month, reports the Associated Press.
Analysis: The Bolts have held their own through injuries to Ryan Malone and Steven Stamkos. Malone's return could be a boost the power play, so get ready to roll the dice on this injury-prone power forward once he returns.

Bolts' Malone (Ankle) Tests Injury In On-Ice Workout

News: Ryan Malone (ankle) had a light on-ice workout on Thursday, reports the Associated Press.
Analysis: His original timetable for return is three-to-four weeks and we're pretty close to the four-week point. He'll need to get several practices under his belt before he can return in order to get his conditioning back up, so don't activate him just yet.

Bolts' Malone Expected To Miss 3-4 Weeks

News: GM Steve Yzerman said Ryan Malone is dealing with a non-displaced ankle fracture and is expected to miss three-to-four weeks, Damian Cristodero of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Though coach Jon Cooper wouldn't shed much light on Ryan Malone's injury following Tuesday's skate, Yzerman was much more forthright in describing the severity of Malone's injury. Malone will now be aiming for a return around Christmastime, shorting the Lightning of another quality forward.

Bolts' Malone Expected To Miss A Couple Weeks

News: Coach Jon Cooper expects Ryan Malone (foot) to miss a couple weeks with his injury, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: It's a familiar refrain for the perpetually fragile Ryan Malone, who has missed at least 12 games every season for five years running. Given his lengthy injury history, it's going to be difficult for fantasy owners to regularly count on Malone for steady production for the rest of the 2013-14, and most likely, the seasons to follow.

Bolts Move Malone To IR

News: Ryan Malone (foot) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Damian Cristodero of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: With Ryan Malone already ruled out for two games and showing limited signs of progress, the Lightning elected to move him to injured reserve to free up a roster spot. It's uncertain when he may draw back into the Bolts' lineup.

Bolts' Malone Out Again Wednesday

News: Ryan Malone (foot) will not play Wednesday vs. the Flyers, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: It's still uncertain how well Ryan Malone is progressing in his recovery from the foot injury, as he'll now miss his second straight game to the injury. With fellow winger Pierre-Cedric Labrie also out Wednesday with an injury, the Bolts recalled Dana Tyrell from AHL Syracuse to provide the team with some added forward depth.

Lightning's Malone Out Monday

News: Ryan Malone (foot) will not play in Monday's game against the Rangers.
Analysis: It's not entirely clear where Ryan Malone stands health-wise, but the setback will prevent him from taking the ice Monday night. Nikita Kucherov will make his NHL debut in Malone's place.

Lightning's Malone Questionable For Monday

News: Ryan Malone (foot) is questionable for Monday's game against the Rangers, the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Details are scarce, but Ryan Malone presumably hurt his foot in Friday's overtime loss to Anaheim. His status for Monday's game is up in the air, but the team's decision to bring Nikita Kucherov up from AHL Syracuse is telling.

Bolts' Malone: Two Goals In Last Three Games

News: Ryan Malone scored the Lightning's lone goal through regulation in a 2-1 win over Montreal on Tuesday night.
Analysis: It's his second goal in his last three games. He has been less-than-effective so far this season, so this light spurt is heartening. But it still isn't enough to make him worthy in anything but the deepest of formats ... at least for now .

Bolts' Malone Sinks To Fourth Line

News: Ryan Malone, who started the season on the Lightning's top line, played just 9:14 on Thursday night and found himself on the fourth line by the end of the game.
Analysis: He has one goal and six assists in 15 games and a mere three helpers in his last nine outings. This experiment on line four won't last, but he certainly isn't the multi-category contributor he once was.

Bolts' Malone: Two-Helper Night

News: Ryan Malone picked up two assists in Sunday's shootout win over the Panthers.
Analysis: His points have been few and far between -- these are just his fifth and sixth on the season, and they've come in four of the ten games the Bolts have played. He's still hitting, but his lack of consistency makes him a tough head-to-head activation.

Lightning's Malone (Upper Body) Ready For Opener

News: Ryan Malone (upper body) should be ready for Thursday's season opener against the Bruins, the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Ryan Malone returned to the ice for Friday's morning skate but was held out of that night's exhibition, mostly as a precaution. Although ostensibly healthy to open the season, Malone has missed 83 games over the past four seasons and should give fantasy owners pause when investing in him.
