Cheechoo Agrees To Deal With KHL Team

News: Jonathan Cheechoo agreed to a contract with Medvescak Zagreb of the KHL, R-Sport reports.
Analysis: Jonathan Cheechoo, 33, has mostly toiled in the minors since 2010, scoring 32 points in 35 games in the AHL last season. The former San Jose Shark posted seasons of 93 and 69 points in the mid-2000s but has only seen his numbers go badly downhill since then. It doesn't appear he'll get another chance at reclaiming NHL glory in the near future.

Blues' Cheechoo Heating Up In AHL

News: Jonathan Cheechoo followed up his two-goal, nine-shot game Saturday with a goal on six shots in AHL Peoria's win over Chicago on Sunday, the Peoria Journal Star reports.
Analysis: The 15 shots fired in the two games over the weekend are more than the 13 he took in the first five games of the season. "I feel a lot more comfortable; early on I was thinking too much about systems, over-thinking everything," Jonathan Cheechoo said. "Obviously, we were upset at how our season started (0-3-1), but there's a long way to go and we're getting better." Not that that does much for your fantasy team.

Blues' Cheechoo Scores For Affiliate

News: Jonathan Cheechoo scored two goals in AHL Peoria's 5-0 win over San Antonio on Friday, the Peoria Journal-Star reports.
Analysis: The goal was Jonathan Cheechoo's first since he scored Feb. 23 of last season for AHL Worcester. He's been off to a slow start with the Rivermen and is a long shot to get back to the NHL.

Blues' Cheechoo Demoted

News: Jonathan Cheechoo was moved off the AHL Peoria's top line after just one game, the Peoria Journal-Star reports.
Analysis: Jonathan Cheechoo had a rough start this past weekend with zero points and a minus-4 in two games.

Blues' Cheechoo Clears Waivers

News: Jonathan Cheechoo has cleared waivers and will report to Peoria of the American Hockey League.
Analysis: Jonathan Cheechoo showed a lot of energy early in camp, but couldn't sustain the pace as the preseason games wore on, so the Blues will be looking for him to get some regular ice time with the Rivermen.

Blues Sending Cheechoo To AHL

News: Jonathan Cheechoo has been put on waivers and will be sent to Peoria (AHL), the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The former scoring champ is reporting to Peoria assuming that he's not scooped up off waivers from another club.

Blues' Cheechoo A Third Star

News: Jonathan Cheechoo was named the third star in St. Louis' 1-0 preseason loss to Minnesota on Thursday, the In The Slot blog reports.
Analysis: Jonathan Cheechoo, who's had a good training camp so far, led the Blues with six shots on goal and had few good scoring chances. "A real easy chance to go right up to the top of that list... he had chances early," coach Davis Payne said of Cheechoo. "A guy gets his cracks, eventually it's going to go in... He's around the net, knows how to get a stick to a spot where he can get it back, has an outlet. At some point, you figure one of these is going to go in for him."

Cheechoo Shines In Blues Practice

News: Jonathan Cheechoo made a good impression with his new team Saturday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. "He might have scored 30 goals out there today," Blues captain David Backes said. "Everything he shot went in, so hopefully that's an omen for what he's got in the bank.
Analysis: Jonathan Cheechoo is attempting to resurrect his career in St. Louis after falling all the way to the AHL. Five seasons ago Cheechoo led the NHL in scoring with 56 goals, and now he's fighting for one of the two open forward spots on the Blues' roster. "It's a valid question," Cheechoo said when asked what happened to his career after the 2005-06 season. "I lost a little bit of confidence, the injuries added up after a while … I just wasn't getting it done. I can't make any excuses. But I'm coming into this camp with a fresh start and trying to show what I can do out there." Cheechoo will need to clear waivers for the Blues to send him down to AHL Peoria, so he has that working for him in his quest to remain in the NHL.

Bllues' Cheechoo Eying One Of Two Spots

News: The Blues appear to have two available roster spots at forward, with Jonathan Cheechoo being in competition for one of the spots, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The Blues are hoping to pull a little magic out of the hat with Jonathan Cheechoo, who spent all of last season with the Worcester Sharks of the AHL. His contract is a two-way deal and we could very well see Cheechoo open the year at Peoria and offer some depth should injuries hit the forward line in St. Louis.

Cheechoo Signs With Blues

News: The Blues have signed Cheechoo to a two-way contract, reports Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Analysis: Cheechoo will make $600k in the NHL and $105k while in the AHL. He played 55 games with Worcester in the AHL last season, recording 47 points but also a minus-11. He has 305 points in 501 career NHL games.

Cheechoo Experiencing Highs and Lows With AHL Worcester

News: Cheechoo is a minus-8 in the plus/minus category with Worcester, a minor league affiliate of the San Jose Sharks.
Analysis: Cheechoo is locked into a tie for the worst plus/minus rating in Worcester with Jay Leach. However, Cheechoo, who scored 56 goals with the NHL's Sharks in 2005-06, also leads his AHL club in points (5G, 8A). Obviously, he has no value away from the NHL.

Jonathan Cheechoo: Signs Tryout Deal With Baby Sharks

News: Cheechoo has been signed to a tryout contract with Worcester, a minor-league affiliate of the Sharks, the Sharks' official site reports.
Analysis: Cheechoo participated in the Stars' training camp but failed to impress. At least now, with the Worcester Sharks as a tryout player, Cheechoo can try to inch his way closer to San Jose, where he was the Rocket Richard Trophy winner back in 2005-06 with 56 goals.

Stars Release Cheechoo

News: Cheechoo has been released by the Stars, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: He was failing to impress head coach Marc Crawford to this point, and the Stars decided to go with younger options for a scoring line spot rather than hoping the former 50-goal scorer would regain his form from several years ago.

Dallas' Cheechoo Derailed in Debut

News: Cheechoo didn't impress Dallas coach Marc Crawford in his debut on Dallas' second line during Tuesday's loss to Tampa Bay, the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: "He looked like a strong veteran player, like many of the players in the game tonight, but he didn't do anything to set himself apart," Carwford added. "It's tough for him, but that's pro sports. But he's going to get another opportunity and we'll see him in some other situations as well." Cheechoo figures to get several games on Dallas' second line, but he'll need to show something if he wants to stick with the Stars.

Stars' Cheecho Skates on Second Line

News: Dallas intends to use Cheechoo on the second line with Mike Ribeiro and Brenden Morrow, the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Watch his role closely this preseason, as there's some potential here for a nice rebound season.

Senators say goodbye to Cheechoo

News: The Ottawa Senators are buying out the final year of forward Jonathan Cheechoo's contract. One day after waiving the 2006 winner of the Maurice Richard Trophy, when Cheechoo scored an NHL-best 56 goals, the Senators said Tuesday that they are cutting the 29-year-old winger loose. Cheechoo was set to earn $3.5 million next season. After he cleared waivers, the Senators were allowed to buy him out.
Analysis: Cheechoo, acquired from San Jose last year in the big trade that sent Dany Heatley to the Sharks, had only five goals with nine assists in 61 games for Ottawa. He added eight goals and six assists in 25 games with Binghamton of the AHL. Cheechoo's career has been in a steep decline since scoring 56 goals in 2005-06 for San Jose. Even if he latches on with another team, we aren't sure Cheechoo is worth the flier on Draft Day 2010.

Cheechoo placed on waivers

News: The Senators, who acquired Matt Cullen in a trade Friday, also placed Jonathan Cheechoo on waivers.
Analysis: You figured Ottawa was likely to make some sort of move with Cheechoo, who has frustrated the team since his acquisition in the Dany Heatley trade before the season. Cheechoo has only five goals and 14 points in 61 games. He also has a minus-13 rating and has been stewing on the fourth line. Cheechoo might land somewhere else, but we doubt he will return to his old form. Leave Cheechoo alone in Fantasy.

Cheechoo needs to find game

News: The Sports Xchange reports Jonathan Cheechoo's 500th career game was by far his best as a Senator. And if he can string together a few more like it -- starting Thursday when Ottawa entertains the Washington Capitals in a battle of the Eastern Conference's two hottest teams -- Cheechoo could alter the thinking of GM Bryan Murray heading toward the trade deadline. As is, Murray needs to try to add at least one more top-six forward to a team that -- with 12 wins in its last 13 games -- appears to be emerging as a serious Stanley Cup contender.
Analysis: Cheechoo, who scored 56 goals with the San Jose Sharks in 2005-06, has been the Senators' 12th-best forward most nights. In fact, before his assist on Jason Spezza's winning goal against Calgary on Tuesday, he ranked 16th among the team's scoring leaders. The Senators knew he had slowed down considerably when they acquired Cheechoo as a throw-in piece in the Dany Heatley trade during the offseason, but as the ninth-highest paid player on the club more was still expected from him -- especially given the fact that he is one of only five players to suit up for all 60 games thus far. Unless he can provide more efforts like he did against the Flames, when he also had five shots on goal and was robbed twice by Calgary goalie Miikka Kiprusoff, Cheechoo will likely be in the pressbox or the minors when the Senators start the playoffs. He continues to have marginal Fantasy appeal as well.

Cheechoo scores vs. Boston

News: Senators RW Jonathan Cheechoo scored a goal and finished at plus-1 on Monday against the Bruins. Ottawa's final goal came at 11:05 of the third period after Boston defenseman Dennis Wideman lost the puck when he skated into referee Dan O'Rourke, and Jonathan Cheechoo collected it and easily beat Tuukka Rask. Cheechoo has two goals and one assist in his last seven games.
Analysis: It's looking more and more as though Cheechoo was merely a throw-in to the deal that sent Dany Heatley to San Jose because his offensive game continues to be weak in Ottawa. There hasn't been many more disappointing players over the last few years than Cheechoo, who has suffered a career decline since totaling 56 goals in 2005-06. He has marginal Fantasy appeal these days.

Cheechoo not scoring much for Sens

News: Senators RW Jonathan Cheechoo scored a goal and finished at plus-1 on Thursday against the Capitals. Cheechoo added a goal in the third period as he beat Jose Theodore with 55 seconds remaining. It was his fourth goal and first score since Nov. 19.
Analysis: Cheechoo probably ranks up there as one of the most disappointing Fantasy players the last few seasons. The height of his popularity is when he scored 56 goals in 2005-06 with San Jose, but it has been all downhill ever since. We hoped a change of scenery would spark Cheechoo, but sadly it has not. Cheechoo has marginal Fantasy appeal.

Cheechoo nets first goal

News: Ottawa RW Jonathan Cheechoo scored his first goal of the season in the Senators 4-3 shootout win over the Oilers on Tuesday. The goal came in the 1st period to tie the score at one apiece.
Analysis: Cheechoo now has just three points on the season for the Senators. Until he really starts picking up the production, however, he only has low-end Fantasy appeal.

Cheechoo getting a fresh start

News: The San Jose Sharks made the big move that has been expected ever since their best regular season ended with a first-round playoff exit, acquiring disgruntled winger Dany Heatley from the Ottawa Senators on Saturday. The Sharks gave up Milan Michalek, Jonathan Cheechoo and a second-round pick to acquire Heatley, who had been involved in a lingering dispute with the Senators because he felt he was not being properly used by the team. "It was tough. It wasn't the greatest summer. No question," Heatley said in a conference call Saturday. "I'm relieved and excited to be going to San Jose." Ottawa also sent San Jose a fifth-round draft pick. The long-rumored trade came on the opening day of training camp for Ottawa and ends a clash that has overshadowed the Senators in recent months. "I talked to Dany (Friday) and he was adamant that he wanted to be moved and we felt based on that, more than anything, that we should get the value that we could get for him and move on," Senators general manager Brian Murray said.
Analysis: The 29-year-old Cheechoo scored 56 goals in 2005-06 to win the Maurice Richard trophy, but his production has dropped off significantly since. He had only 12 goals and 17 assists in 66 games last season and was no longer a central part of the Sharks future. We were a little disappointed that Cheechoo couldn't get his offensive rhythm back under a top offensive coach like Todd McLellan. Perhaps a fresh start is what he needs. Cheechoo is no longer a must-have Fantasy option Draft Day, but could be a potential sleeper in deeper formats.

Heatley traded to San Jose

News: The Senators traded disgruntled RW Dany Heatley to the Sharks on Saturday for RW Milan Michalek, RW Jonathan Cheechoo and a second-round pick.
Analysis: Heatley is finally out of Ottawa and will get to play alongside Joe Thornton in San Jose, where he could certainly have a chance to get back into triple-digit points once again. Continue to think of him as a solid top-end Fantasy winger. Cheechoo once came close to 100 points when he finished with 93 in 2005-06, but his career has been on the decline ever since. Hopefully this move east will do him some good and get him moving up the Fantasy value chart. Continue to draft him in deeper leagues, but now as more of a sleeper option than last year. Michalek has averaged just under 60 points over the last couple of seasons, but could see a boost in value if he sees plenty of time with Daniel Alfredsson and Jason Spezza on the scoring lines. He remains a No. 3 or No. 4 Fantasy forward until we get to see how he gels in Ottawa.

Cheechoo returns for the playoffs

News: San Jose RW Jonathan Cheechoo was able to play in Game One of the Western Conference playoffs on Thursday against the Ducks. He failed to record an offensive stat as the Sharks were shut out 2-0.
Analysis: Cheechoo sat out the final game of the season in order to be healthy for the playoffs and his injury is not thought to be something that will hamper him in the playoffs. He'll remain a low-end option moving ahead to next season.

Cheechoo sits, good for playoffs

News: According to the San Jose Mercury News, Jonathan Cheechoo did not play in Saturday's regular season finale against the Kings but will be ready to go for the team's first round of the playoffs.
Analysis: Cheechoo finished off the regular season with five points in his final six games, a good sign looking ahead to the team's playoff chances. Cheechoo is no longer an elite player in Fantasy but is serviceable on the team's lower lines. He'll likely remain a low-end player looking ahead to the 2009-2010 season.
