News: The Panthers have recalled Nolan Yonkman from AHL San Antonio, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis:Nolan Yonkman will give the Panthers some added blue line depth, with Dmitry Kulikov having suffered a lower-body injury in Saturday's game against the Hurricanes.
News: Florida recalled Nolan Yonkman on Saturday, Panthers.NHL.com reports.
Analysis:Nolan Yonkman has just one assist in his 16 NHL appearances so far, so it's unlikely that he'll generate useful fantasy production.
News: On Friday, the Panthers agreed to terms with Yonkman on a two-year contract, according to the team's official site.
Analysis: Yonkman, who was selected by the Capitals in the second round of the 1999 Entry Draft, has only played in 66 games at the NHL level. The Coyotes sent him out on the ice for 16 games in 2010-11, and he responded with a plus-5 rating, 39 penalty minutes and an assist. We figure he'll add some muscle to a Florida club that is in the midst of a major offseason overhaul.

News: Phoenix recalled Yonkman on Saturday, Hockey Night In Canada's Jeff Marek reports.
Analysis: Yonkman is averaging two PIMs per showing this year, his first season since 2005. Beyond that already limited utility, there's not much to see here.
News: The Coyotes placed Yonkman on waivers Tuesday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
Analysis: Yonkman picked up 24 PIMs in 12 games with the Coyotes this season. He will likely head back to AHL Milwaukee until the next time the Coyotes need to add a bruiser.
News: Yonkman has been called up by the Coyotes, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: He's a physical blueliner, but not one that will offer much to fantasy owners beyond time spent in the penalty box. As a result, there's not much to be excited about here and his stay in Phoenix could be brief.
News: The Predators have recalled C Colin Wilson and D Nolan Yonkman from the AHL.
Analysis: Wilson, who has 10 NHL games under his belt this season, is a promising youngster who was taken seventh overall in the 2008 draft. He remains an elite keeper option. Yonkman has pretty much been a career minor-leaguer since being drafted in 1999 and has no Fantasy value at this time.
News: The Predators re-signed defenseman Nolan Yonkman to a one-year, two-way contract Monday.
Analysis: The 28-year-old Yonkman has spent the past three seasons with the Milwaukee Admirals (AHL), registering 30 points (six goals) and 296 penalty minutes in 207 games. Yonkman has also played 50 NHL games since turning pro in 2001, notching eight points (one goal) and 90 penalty minutes. He is merely organizational depth and can be ignored in Fantasy.
News: The Nashville Predators added two free agents, goaltender Dan Ellis and forward Shane Willis, and re-signed defenseman Nolan Yonkman on Thursday.
Analysis: Yonkman, 26, was signed to a one-year contract. With the Milwaukee Admirals last season, the 6-foot-6, 236-pounder posted three goals and 10 assists. He has eight points in 50 career NHL games. His Fantasy appeal is negligible.
News: Nolan Yonkman has posted no goals and just three assists in 20 games at the Olympic Games break, but he has a plus-2 rating with the lowly Capitals. He is the only Washington player besides team leader Chris Clark (plus-6) with a positive rating.
Analysis: Despite the solid plus/minus rating, Yonkman is not someone to consider down the stretch once play resumes after the break.
News: Capitals prospect Nolan Yonkman is scheduled to undergo major knee surgery on Tuesday in Washington, according to the Washington Post. He tore a ligament in October. Yonkman will need four to six months to recover.
