Rangers Reassign Malone

News: The Rangers reassigned Ryan Malone to AHL Hartford on Monday, Andrew Gross of the Record reports.
Analysis: The 34-year-old winger has suited up for six games with the Rangers this season, but failed to record a point, so he'll head to Hartford until the Rangers need help with their forward depth.

Malone Sticking Around With Rangers

News: Ryan Malone remains with the Rangers despite going unclaimed off waivers, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.
Analysis: As a 34-year-old NHL veteran, Ryan Malone doesn't have much to gain by heading to the minors, so the Rangers will keep him around as a depth forward and practice player until further notice. Unless the Rangers decide to reassign him, Malone will be eligible to appear in games, though he figures to serve as a regular healthy scratch for the team.

Rangers' Malone Placed On Waivers Sunday

News: Ryan Malone was placed on waivers by the Rangers on Sunday, Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada reports.
Analysis: Ryan Malone has dressed for just five games this season and hasn't recorded a point. If he passes through waivers unclaimed, he will then have to decide whether or not to accept an assignment to the AHL.

Rangers' Malone To Dress Versus Wild

News: Ryan Malone will dress for Monday's tilt against Minnesota, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.
Analysis: No word yet on who his linemates will be, but it's very likely he garners less than 15 minutes of total ice time. Ryan Malone, who has appeared in just half of the team's eight games, could also see some ice time on the second power-play unit. Through four contests, the 34-year-old Malone has yet to register a point while logging five shots on goal and a minus-1 rating. Although Malone's progress should remain on your radar, he's not worthy of a speculative pickup in any format until he starts getting into the lineup (and scoring) more consistently.

Rangers' Malone To Make Debut Tuesday

News: Ryan Malone will make his Rangers debut Tuesday against the Islanders, The Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Ryan Malone sat out the Rangers' first three games as a healthy scratch, but coach Alain Vigneault will use Tuesday as an opportunity to experiment with some new line changes. Wingers J.T. Miller and Jesper Fast will sit out to create room for Malone's entry into the lineup, but both figure to be more regular fixtures in the bottom six than Malone in the games to come.

Rangers' Malone Scratched Sunday

News: Ryan Malone was scratched Sunday for the third straight game, Newsday reports.
Analysis: Ryan Malone appears to be on the outside looking in, as he's yet to play in a regular season game. The veteran tallied just 15 points last season and posted a minus-seven rating in an average of 11:47 of ice time.

Rangers' Malone (Hip) Hopes to Play

News: Ryan Malone (hip) hopes to play in the Rangers' final two preseason games, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: Ryan Malone returned to practice Wednesday, and with Friday being the team's next game, will work towards being ready for that day. He is battling several other candidates for a few forward spots, and will likely need to impress over the final two preseason games to earn a spot.

Rangers' Malone Practices Wednesday

News: Ryan Malone (hip flexor) returned to practice Wednesday, Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: With the Rangers not playing their next preseason contest until Friday, it looks like Ryan Malone will still have some time to nurse himself back to full health before making a final push for a roster berth. The Rangers have several candidates for a minute number of forward spots, meaning Malone may need to impress over the final two games in order to secure a gig.

Rangers' Malone Day-To-Day With Hip Flexor

News: Ryan Malone is day-to-day with a hip flexor injury, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: It is unclear when Ryan Malone got the injury, but nevertheless it does not appear serious, and he should still be ready to play when the regular season starts.

Malone Finds Net in Rangers' Loss

News: Ryan Malone netted a first period powerplay goal in Sunday's preseason loss to the Devils.
Analysis: Ryan Malone, who is on a long list of players vying for a few open spots played on the team's fourth line with Dominic Moore and Jesper Fast. If the five time 20-goal is going to stick around for the regular season he'll have to consistently chip in offensively.

Rangers, Malone Agree To Two-Way Deal

News: Ryan Malone signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Rangers on Thursday, Larry Brooks of the New York Post reports. The deal is worth $700,000 at the NHL level.
Analysis: Ryan Malone could only secure a minimal commitment from the Rangers after an Apr. 12 arrest for DUI and cocaine possession understandably resulted in a cool market for the veteran winger. Even prior to the arrest, Malone's career was on shaky ground, as his annual injury issues and declining on-ice production had relegated the one-time 50-point scorer to checking line status. He'll be one of a slew of players competing for a fourth-line role with the Rangers in training camp, with his two-way contract likely working against him.

Malone and Pens: Possible Match?

News: The Penguins may have some interest in signing Ryan Malone, reports the Pittsburgh Tribune. "I have talked to Pittsburgh about him throughout the summer," said Malone's agent Mike Liut. "They're kicking tires. They've expressed some interest, but it's just that. Which is fine."
Analysis: Ryan Malone grew up in the area and Liut admits there's "a natural attraction there" for his client. Malone would come with serious baggage, though, considering his DUI and cocaine possession charges this past April. Liut said he's talked to several teams, but wouldn't elaborate on which ones.

Free Agent Malone Pleads No Contest

News: Ryan Malone pleaded no contest Tuesday to his DUI charge stemming from an April arrest, but did agree to a pretrial diversion program for the cocaine possession charge he received in the same incident, Matt Baker of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: The diversion program will help Ryan Malone's chances of getting the felony drug charge dismissed if he completes the required criteria. Malone's pending legal issues have made teams reluctant to extend a contract offer just yet, but several clubs are said to be interested in the 34-year-old. Once he completes the program and completes community service for his DUI charge, Malone should latch on with a team.

Free Agent Malone May Work Out Plea On Charges

News: Ryan Malone was "baffled" when officers found cocaine in his back pocket when they pulled him over in April, reports the Tampa Bay Times. "I asked where it came from," officer Andrew Visser wrote in his report. "And he said he was just shocked."
Analysis: Ryan Malone's next court date is August 19 and he could work out a plea on the DUI and possession charges. He says he has no idea where the cocaine came from because he had worn the same pants for three days. He's an unrestricted free agent and his agent Mike Liut says a couple of teams have expressed interest in the winger. "I think he'll land somewhere," Liut said. "It's just a matter of where and when."

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.
