Canes Re-Sign Boychuk

News: Zach Boychuk re-signed with the Hurricanes on Wednesday, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Zach Boychuk played in just 11 games with the Canes last season, but had an impressive year with AHL Charlotte, totaling 74 points (36 goals) over 69 contests. The 24-year-old was claimed off waivers from Nashville in 2012-13, and will gear up for his second full season in the Canes' organization.

Canes' Boychuk Reassigned To AHL Charlotte

News: Zach Boychuk was reassigned to AHL Charlotte on Saturday.
Analysis: Zach Boychuk has bounced between the two teams throughout the year, and was called up to play in a game on Friday night. The news of him being sent back down probably speaks to the availability of Nathan Gerbe on Saturday.

Hurricanes Recall Boychuk

News: The Hurricanes recalled Zach Boychuk from AHL Charlotte on Friday, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.

Hurricanes Recall Boychuk

News: Zach Boychuk was recalled Thursday from AHL Charlotte.
Analysis: With both Drayson Bowman and Alexander Semin dealing with illnesses, Zach Boychuk would seem to have a good chance at stepping into the lineup Thursday against the Stars. However, Boychuk will likely be returned to Charlotte in swift fashion once either player recovers.

Hurricanes Reassign Boychuk

News: Zach Boychuk was reassigned to AHL Charlotte on Saturday, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Zach Boychuk had a two-point showing in Thursday's win over the Maple Leafs, but he was no longer needed with Riley Nash (lower body) returning from IR. The 24-year-old showed some encouraging play while with the parent club and should get another opportunity later this season.

Boychuk Tallies Two Points For 'Canes

News: Zach Boychuk contributed a goal and an assist to Thursday's 6-1 win over the Leafs.
Analysis: The two-point night was good enough to double his NHL point total on the season, as Zach Boychuk now boasts four points and a plus-3 rating in eight games with the 'Canes. Always a big producer in the AHL, Boychuk's never been able to translate that scoring to the NHL level on a consistent basis, but it's worth noting that his 13:16 of ice time Thursday was a season high.

Canes' Boychuk Contributes In Win Over Habs

News: Zach Boychuk posted an assist to help the Hurricanes beat the Canadiens 5-4 in overtime Tuesday. It was his first point in three games since being recalled from AHL Charlotte last week.
Analysis: Zach Boychuk figures to be in the lineup for the next couple of weeks while Jiri Tlusty recovers from the emergency appendectomy he underwent last week. For now, Boychuk continues to skate on the Canes' fourth line alongside Manny Malhotra and Radek Dvorak, giving him fantasy value in very deep formats only.

Hurricanes Recall Boychuk

News: The Hurricanes recalled Zach Boychuk from AHL Charlotte on Friday.
Analysis: Zach Boychuk, who appeared in one game with the Hurricanes earlier this season, was brought up to replace Jiri Tlusty (appendix) on the active roster. Boychuk has played well with Charlotte this season, posting 14 goals and 13 assists in 29 games.

Boychuk Grabs Assist In Canes Debut

News: Zach Boychuk played 7:53 and assisted on one of Carolina's five goals in Friday's win over San Jose, his season debut for the Hurricanes. He played on the left wing rather than his usual defense spot.
Analysis: Zach Boychuk was recalled on Friday morning from Charlotte (AHL) in the wake of injuries to Patrick Dwyer and Drayson Bowman. Boychuk skated on the wing rather than the blue line and didn't see much ice time.

Canes Recall Boychuk

News: Zach Boychuk was recalled from AHL Charlotte on Friday.
Analysis: Zach Boychuk earned the promotion after scoring seven goals in the last nine games for Charlotte. He'll most likely occupy a fourth-line role or serve as a healthy scratch while with the Hurricanes. Mike Komisarek was placed on injured reserve to create room for Boychuk.

Hurricanes Waive Boychuk

News: The Hurricanes placed Zach Boychuk on waivers Sunday, according to the Raleigh News & Observer.
Analysis: This comes as something of a surprise, as Zach Boychuk had a good training camp and preseason, scoring two goals in a team scrimmage and then another in a preseason game against Buffalo. He will open the season at AHL Charlotte if he is not picked up by another team via the waiver process.

Hurricanes' Boychuk Looking To Prove Himself

News: Zach Boychuk scored a pair of goals during the Hurricanes' annual "Red & White" team scrimmage Saturday, according to the Raleigh News & Observer.
Analysis: It's certainly a good start for Zach Boychuk, Carolina's first-round draft pick in 2008. Boychuck saw time with three different teams last season - Hurricanes, Penguins and Predators - after being put on waivers three times. He registered zero points in just seven games and finished the season with AHL Charlotte. With just 13 NHL games under his belt over the past three seasos, Boychuk still has a long way to go to prove he belongs in the big leagues.

Hurricanes Send Boychuk to AHL

News: Zach Boychuk was assigned to the AHL on Saturday.
Analysis: Given how much he has bounced around the league lately, landing on his third team of the season and getting sent to the AHL shortly after, Zach Boychuk is not likely to get on the fantasy radar in the near future.

3/21/2013

Zach Boychuk, C, CAR

Zach Boychuk

Hurricanes Claim Boychuk

News: The Hurricanes have claimed Zach Boychuk off waivers from the Predators, the Sports Network reports.
Analysis: Zach Boychuk, who has one goal and one assist in 13 NHL games overall this season, is back where he started this season, after stints with both the Penguins and Preds.

Predators Place Boychuk On Waivers

News: The Predators placed Zach Boychuk on waivers Wednesday, TSN's Darren Dreger reports.
Analysis: The Predators claimed Zach Boychuk off waivers from the Penguins earlier in the month, but he did not do enough in his brief stint with the team to stick around for the time being. Boychuk will be assigned to AHL Milwaukee unless claimed by another squad.

Preds' New Addition Boychuk Looking At Possible Top-Six Role

News: Zach Boychuk skated on a line with Mike Fisher and Patric Hornqvist during practice Wednesday and is likely to play Friday against Edmonton, reports the Tennessean.
Analysis: The Preds, who have scored just a single goal in each of their last three games - all losses - are looking to jump-start their offense with some new additions to the lineup. However, Zach Boychuk seems like an unlikely source for additional firepower, having scored a combined 18 points in 63 games over the past five seasons. Don't get your hopes up, folks.

Predators Claim Boychuk

News: Zach Boychuk has been claimed on waivers by the Predators, TSN's Darren Dreger reports.
Analysis: The Penguins had originally picked up Zach Boychuk off of waivers on Jan. 31 as a potential left winger for Evgeni Malkin, but ultimately he was sent packing by the team when a roster spot was needed for the return of Malkin from his recent concussion. Carolina was said to be hopeful that the 2008 first-rounder would land in their court via waivers, but the Preds snapped him up instead. In eight NHL games to date this season, Boychuk has yet to record a point.

Penguins' Boychuk Placed On Waivers

News: Zach Boychuk was placed on waivers Monday, Shelly Anderson of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Zach Boychuk was claimed off of waivers January 31 to play alongside forward Evgeni Malkin on the team's second line. After not scoring a single point in seven games, Boychuk found himself being scratched from most of the team's games. Boychuk was placed on waivers to make room for Malkin, who passed his concussion tests Monday.

Pens' Boychuk Sitting Saturday

News: Zach Boychuk will not play Saturday against the Canadiens, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: It will be a second straight healthy scratch for Zach Boychuk. He lost his spot on the second line in February, and it seems he'll be used sparingly going forward.

Pens' Boychuk A Healthy Scratch Friday

News: Zach Boychuk will not play Friday against the Panthers, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Zach Boychuk, who has not yet recorded a point in eight games this season, will watch Friday as a healthy scratch.

Pens' Boychuk Falls To Fourth Line Wednesday

News: Zach Boychuk saw his grip on the second line slip Wednesday, with Matt Cooke having success while lining up next to Evgeni Malkin and James Neal.
Analysis: The Penguins would like to keep him around and let him develop -- they moved one of his competitors, Eric Tangradi, to Winnipeg in a trade Wednesday. Zach Boychuk was dropped to the fourth line against the Senators. He'll likely see intermittent time on Malkin's line going forward, but the team figures to trade for a top-six winger and/or promote Beau Bennett prior to the trade deadline.

Pens' Boychuk To Sit Sunday?

News: Zach Boychuk could serve as a healthy scratch Sunday after going pointless in his fifth straight game against the Devils on Saturday.
Analysis: He's shown good speed but a lack of finishing ability. The Pens kept their lineup the same during a five-game winning streak. Now that they've lost a game, don't be surprised if Zach Boychuk finds himself benched.

Pens' Boychuk Not Finding Scoresheet

News: Zach Boychuk is still looking for his first point after three games with the Penguins.
Analysis: He's skated exclusively at even strength, mostly with Evgeni Malkin and James Neal. Even though Zach Boychuk isn't scoring, his speed opens up the ice for the big guns. His presence seems to have solidified the team's four lines -- the Pens have won all three times he's been in the starting lineup. Boychuk's a work in progress, so his short-term fantasy value probably isn't very great, although Malkin is due for a breakout game sooner or later and could take Boychuk along for the ride.

Boychuk Could See Time With Malkin

News: After being claimed earlier Thursday, Pens' coach Dan Bylsma said that Zach Boychuk could get work on Evgeni Malkin's line.
Analysis: Zach Boychuk has just seven goals and 18 points in 73 career NHL games, but the Penguins are desperately looking for an injection of energy. He's put up 32 points (16G, 16A) in 37 AHL games for 2012-13. It might be a long shot to think he could slide right into the Pens' No. 2 line, but there's so little risk involved that he might be worth a waiver pickup.
