Caps' Rechlicz Scores Game Winner

News: Joel Rechlicz scored a game-winning shootout goal to give the Caps a 4-3 win over the Flyers in Monday's preseason game.
Analysis: Joel Rechlicz spent all of last year in the AHL, failing to score a goal in 40 games between Hershey and Portland. "Recker" is more known for his fighting than his offense, and Monday's goal is a product of the preseason, not any increased role in Washington.

News: The Capitals placed Joel Rechlicz on waivers Tuesday, Katie Carrera of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: The man who leads the AHL in penalty minutes this season will likely end up back there if he clears waivers. It's really the only column on the stat sheet that Joel Rechlicz fills, but if he makes it back to the NHL this season, that could be valuable.

Rechlicz recalled from Bridgeport (AHL)

News: The Sports Xchange reports Islanders RW Trent Hunter will miss two to four weeks with a tear in his pectoral muscle, costing the Islanders one of their few proven two-way performers and top penalty-killing forwards for the next several games. Hunter was injured Thursday against Ottawa. LW Joel Rechlicz was recalled from Bridgeport (AHL). "(Hunter's) a guy we had penciled in for a certain number of goals, and he had a good camp and a good start to the year," coach Scott Gordon said. "Obviously this is a setback, but this isn't a long-term thing."
Analysis: While Gordon believes Rechlicz is more than just a checking-line forward, his track record speaks otherwise. Consider Rechlicz nothing more than a Fantasy flier in leagues that reward heavily for PIM.

Rechlicz hopes for full-time gig

News: The Sports Xchange reports Islanders RW Joel Rechlicz hopes to make the opening-night roster as the team's full-time enforcer after the 22-year-old tough guy totaled 68 penalty minutes in 17 late-season appearances last season. "I'm the guy. I'm the sheriff for the Islanders," Rechlicz said. "In everything I do, I want to provide toughness and show I'm not a liability."
Analysis: Islanders head coach Scott Gordon has been impressed with Rechlicz's work ethic and has even hinted he could serve a bigger role than just an enforcer. But that's what he has been his entire career -- including juniors -- and we don't see that changing anytime soon. Rechlicz is merely a Fantasy flier in leagues that reward heavily for PIM.

Five Isles players called up

News: The Islanders recalled five players from Bridgeport on Saturday on an emergency basis: forwards Mitch Fritz, Mike Iggulden, Jesse Joensuu and Joel Rechlicz, and defenseman Jamie Fraser. Fraser made his NHL debut.
Analysis: None of these players have any Fantasy value so leave them all on waivers.

Rechlicz could be more than enforcer

News: The Sports Xchange reports Islanders LW Joel Rechlicz has the chance to develop into more than just the enforcer he was advertised to be, according to coach Scott Gordon, who has been impressed by the rookie tough guy's improved skating ability since training camp. "He just soaks it all up," Gordon said. "Joel is a high-energy guy. He steps on the ice and he leaves everything out there. It's a unique thing to have a guy that wants to go out there and finish his checks. At the same time, he's going to drop the gloves when he has to. On top of that, when he doesn't play on the bench, there's a lot of life that comes from him. The best part of it is he's only 21."
Analysis: Rechlicz might have a future as more than an enforcer, but that hasn't been the case since his recall from the minors in March. He has one point in 11 games to 39 penalty minutes, which includes five fights. Right now, Rechlicz is only worth a look as a flier in leagues that reward heavily for PIM.

Rechlicz called up to Islanders

News: According to The Sports Xchange, Islanders LW Joel Rechlicz, a minor league enforcer who appeared in one game for the Islanders earlier this month, was called up again from AHL Bridgeport, with LW Jesse Joensuu sent back to the minors. "I do want to see (Rechlicz) play some more at this level because I would like to know how much he can play at this level," coach Scott Gordon told Newsday. "He had moments in training camp where you could see he had the element of speed. He got in and finished checks and went to the net. He was probably a little too reckless, but now, he's more under control."
Analysis: Rechlicz may be able to be used as an enforcer if he is able to stick in the NHL, but isn't worth owning at the moment until he proves that he'll be around long enough to be worth owning. He's a fighter, so his only real worth is likely in leagues that reward heavily for PIM.
