Wild Send Blum Back To AHL

News: Jonathon Blum was assigned to AHL Iowa on Friday, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Jonathon Blum was recalled by the Wild on Wednesday after the team waived him early in the week, but that was only to provide an extra body on defense for Thursday's preseason loss to the Blues. He's expected to remain at the AHL level for the bulk of the campaign.

Wild Recall Blum

News: Jonathon Blum was recalled from AHL Iowa on Wednesday, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Jonathon Blum was among three players the team placed on waivers earlier in the week, but he'll return to provide depth for Thursday's preseason game against the Blues. Chances are, Blum will head right back down afterward, but he did play in 15 games with Minnesota last season and figures to get another chance at some point in 2014-15.

Wild Place Blum On Waivers

News: Jonathon Blum is one of three players the Wild have placed on waivers.
Analysis: Jonathon Blum being reassigned is a bit of a surprise as many had penciled him into the seventh d-man spot for the Wild. It'd be a surprise if he didn't find his way to St. Paul at some point this season though, it's just not clear if he'll be able to make it stick. For fantasy, it's probably best to steer clear of the previously touted defenseman.

Wild Recall Blum From AHL Iowa

News: Jonathon Blum was recalled from AHL Iowa, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: With Clayton Stoner (undisclosed) and Keith Ballard (groin) hurt, Jonathon Blum will give the Wild depth on the blue line. However, he may not get much ice time.

Wild Assign Blum To AHL

News: Jonathon Blum was reassigned to AHL Iowa on Friday.
Analysis: Jonathon Blum was called up over the Olympic break to take the place of Ryan Suter in practice while Suter was with Team USA. The Americans play in the bronze medal game Saturday, then will make their way back, so Blum will return to the AHL.

Wild Recall Blum

News: Jonathon Blum was recalled from AHL Iowa on Wednesday, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: With Ryan Suter still playing for Team USA in Sochi and Marco Scandella off the ice due to a sprained knee, Jonathon Blum was likely called up just as a placeholder as the Wild resumed practice Wednesday. He'll probably be sent back to Iowa once Suter returns from the Olympics.

Wild's Blum Reassigned To AHL

News: Jonathon Blum was reassigned to AHL Iowa on Thursday.
Analysis: A healthy scratch the past three games, Jonathon Blum didn't have much chance of getting into the lineup anytime soon for the Wild, especially with Jared Spurgeon nearing a return from IR. Blum has appeared in four games with the Wild on the season, going pointless and contributing a hit and two blocked shots.

Wild Recall Blum

News: Jonathon Blum was recalled from AHL Iowa on Monday, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Jonathon Blum will function as an extra defenseman while the Wild wait for Jared Spurgeon to return from injured reserve. Don't expect Blum to see much ice time with the Wild during this stint in the NHL unless another injury occurs on the blue line.

Wild Send Blum Back To Iowa

News: Jonathon Blum was sent down to AHL Iowa on Saturday.
Analysis: Though Jared Spurgeon isn't due back until after the weekend, the Wild decided that Jonathon Blum needed to head back to the farm to work on his game. He appeared in just four games during this call-up but failed to register a single point. He could be back at some point during the season should the Wild need more depth at the blue line.

Wild's Blum Makes Minnesota Debut

News: Jonathon Blum had one shot on goal in 12:56 of ice time in his first game for the Wild this season in Thursday's win over Phoenix.
Analysis: He got playing time over Keith Ballard even with Jared Spurgeon hurt, so it looks like he may be in the blue line rotation in the short term. Jonathon Blum has some upside as he was tied for the AHL Iowa lead in scoring with 17 points in 31 games before being called up.

Wild Recall Blum From AHL

News: Jonathon Blum was recalled from AHL Iowa by the Wild on Monday.
Analysis: Jonathon Blum has made a trip to Minnesota this season but has not appeared in a game for the Wild. In 31 games with AHL Iowa, he has four goals and 13 assists. He will give the Wild some extra depth defensively in the short term if he takes the ice.

Wild Reassign Blum

News: Jonathon Blum was reassigned to AHL Iowa on Wednesday, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Jonathon Blum didn't appear in any games during his two-day stint with the Wild. He'll head back to the minors but should be one of the first considerations for a call-up should the Wild suffer another injury to their blueline ranks.

Blum Recalled By Wild On Monday

News: Jonathon Blum was recalled by the Wild from AHL Iowa on Monday.
Analysis: Jonathon Blum has played in 29 games this season for AHL Iowa. He has scored 16 points on three goals and 13 assists. He played 35 games for the Predators last season, so he will provide the Wild with some depth on defense.

Wild's Blum Placed On Waivers

News: Jonathon Blum was with the intention of sending him to the AHL on Tuesday.
Analysis: Jonathon Blum played in 35 games last season with the Predators, providing one goal and six assists on defense. Given his experience, it was thought he would have a chance to start in the majors, but instead will begin in the AHL and be available as organizational depth at a defensive spot for the Wild.

Wild Add Blum

News: Jonathon Blum agreed to a one-year, two-way deal with Minnesota on Friday.
Analysis: The 24-year-old former first-round pick hasn't really turned into a reliable NHL defender at this point, but he at least earned a career-high 35 NHL appearances a year ago, posting seven points in the process.

Wild Expected To Sign Blum

News: The Wild are expected to sign Jonathon Blum as early as Friday, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.
Analysis: Jonathon Blum became an unrestricted free agent last Friday, and according to league sources, a contract with the Wild is all but official at this point. Blum likely won't start every game, but should provide some experience as a depth defenseman.

Preds' Blum Back In Lineup

News: Jonathon Blum returned to the lineup Sunday night against Edmonton after sitting out the previous five games as a healthy scratch. He saw just 14:07 worth of ice time playing alongside Ryan Ellis.
Analysis: Jonathon Blum will not carry much fantasy value until he manages to secure a top-four defensive role for the Preds, preferably playing alongside Shea Weber. Unfortunately, he obviously still has a ways to go in convincing coach Barry Trotz that he's worthy of such responsibility. In the meantime, make sure you don't invest too much fantasy capital in having Blum on your roster.

Preds Looking At Putting Blum Back In Lineup

News: Jonathon Blum could find himself back in the lineup in the near future, possibly paired with either Ryan Ellis or Scott Hannan, reports the Tennessean.
Analysis: Ellis and Hannan are a combined minus-8 in their last two games, which has drawn the ire of coach Barry Trotz. It's not clear at this point which one of those two will sit, but look for Trotz to make a change and re-insert Jonathon Blum at some point, possibly as early as Sunday's game against Edmonton.

Preds' Blum Riding Pine

News: Jonathon Blum has been a healthy scratch the last two games, giving way to rookie Victor Bartley in the Preds' lineup.
Analysis: After being demoted to AHL Milwaukee for most of last season, Jonathon Blum is clearly still not living up to coach Barry Trotz's expectations this year. His five points (1G, 4A) in 15 games isn't bad, but when a defenseman gets benched, it's usually the result of poor play in his own zone. Long term, Blum still has bright future ahead of him, but he's not a good fantasy option right now. Look elsewhere if you need blue line help.

Blum A Scratch On Friday For Nashville

News: Jonathon Blum was a healthy scratch in Friday's loss to Vancouver, according to the Associated Press.
Analysis: Jonathon Blum had three points in three games before sitting out Friday's contest against the Canucks. Nashville has several young defensemen on its roster, but Blum is seeing second-line power play duty when he is in the lineup.

More Opportunities, More Output For Preds' Blum

News: Jonathon Blum recorded a goal and an assist during Monday's 6-5 loss to the Avalanche. He also saw a season-high 17:49 worth of ice time.
Analysis: Jonathon Blum has slowly worked his way into a top-four role over the past two weeks. At even strength, he's skating alongside Kevin Klein on the Preds' second defensive pairing, and he's also seeing second-line power play duty. Blum is slowly developing into a fantasy-worthy play for those of you in deeper formats.

Preds' Blum Finally Cracks Lineup

News: Jonathon Blum has been skating as the Preds' seventh defenseman the past three games. He's been seeing roughly 10-12 minutes of ice time per night and registered two assists Tuesday against St. Louis.
Analysis: Jonathon Blum has a ways to go before he can be considered fantasy-worthy in most formats, however he's off to a good start. Blum would probably be promoted to a top-six role in the event that any of the Preds' regular blueliners went down with injury.

Preds Considering Putting Blum Into Lineup

News: Coach Barry Trotz said he's been close to putting Jonathon Blum into the lineup in recent games, reports the Tennessean. "He's worked really hard in the offseason," Trotz said of Blum. "The biggest improvements have been what he put in the offseason."
Analysis: With the Preds off to a disappointing start - just a single win in six games with only 10 goals scored - Trotz will no doubt be looking for ways to jump-start his team, particularly by adding a defenseman who can show some chemistry with stud blueliner Shea Weber. Keep an eye on Jonathon Blum's status and be ready to activate him if and when he gets inserted into the lineup.

Preds' Blum Continues To Shine In Minors

News: Jonathon Blum continues to impress the coaching staff at AHL Milwaukee, reports the Tennessean.
Analysis: "Jonathon Blum has been a guy that has stood out the last couple of games both offensively and defensively,", according to Admirals coach Dean Evason. With the loss of Ryan Suter to free agency, the Preds will surely be looking for someone to fill his shoes once the NHL lockout ends and play resumes. Keep Blum on your late-round sleeper list in case he winds up getting the nod.

Preds' Blum Turning Heads In AHL

News: Jonathon Blum has been impressive so far with the Predators' minor league affiliate, according to the Tennessean.
Analysis: With no end in sight for the NHL lockout, Jonathon Blum has been turning heads at the AHL level with three assists in five games so far for the Milwaukee Admirals. More impressive, however, has been his leadership qualities, according to Admirals coach Dean Evason. "[Blum] has been very good for us. He has been a leader on the back end for us. Confidence-wise, he's had no issues at all. He has been very good for us." It sounds like Blum may be on his way to becoming the ready-for-prime-time defenseman the Preds thought he was last season, before being sent to the minors after just 33 games. When the NHL does finally resume play, Blum may just find himself with another opportunity to contribute if he keeps up his strong play. Keep a close eye.
