Coyotes Recall Yip

News: Brandon Yip was recalled from AHL Portland on Tuesday.

Coyotes Send Yip To AHL

News: Brandon Yip was assigned to AHL Portland on Monday.
Analysis: Brandon Yip didn't see the ice in his time up with the Coyotes, so he'll be making his season debut in the AHL. He has not played in a minor-league game since the 2009-10 season, but at this point, he's just organizational forward depth.

Coyotes Recall Yip

News: Brandon Yip was recalled from AHL Portland on Friday.
Analysis: Brandon Yip was sent down to Portland on Thursday in a procedural move to allow Chris Summers to be placed on waivers. After Summers predictably cleared waivers earlier Friday, Yip was able to officially be recalled by the Coyotes.

Coyotes Recall Yip

News: The Coyotes recalled Brandon Yip from AHL Portland on Wednesday.
Analysis: Brandon Yip brings some much needed experience to the Coyotes, but will likely be relegated to a depth forward role. He recorded three goals and five assists in 34 games last season with the Predators.

Coyotes Place Yip On Waivers

News: The Coyotes placed Brandon Yip on waivers Monday, Kevin Allen of USA Today reports.
Analysis: Brandon Yip appeared in 34 NHL games last season with the Predators, but he could not earn a roster spot during training camp with his new squad, and will thus open the year in the minors if he clears waivers.

Phoenix Signs Yip

News: Brandon Yip signed a one-year, two-way deal with Phoenix on Friday.
Analysis: Brandon Yip spent all of the last five years in the NHL for Colorado, but his two-way agreement with Phoenix implies that his NHL playing time is a bit more shaky at this point. Yip has 15 points in his last 59 games.

Preds' Yip Out Tuesday

News: Brandon Yip (lower body) won't play Tuesday against the Flames, the Tennessean reports.

Preds' Yip Injured Sunday

News: Brandon Yip left Sunday's game against Chicago with a lower-body injury.
Analysis: Brandon Yip, who will not return to the contest, saw 4:41 worth of ice time before his exit from Sunday's game. Entering Sunday's tilt, Yip had not scored a point in his last six games, checking in with eight points and 26 PIMs in 33 games overall.

Preds' Yip Struggling Since Return From IR

News: In his second game back after coming off the IR with an upper-body injury, Brandon Yip saw 10:24 worth of ice time during Thursday's 7-4 loss to Vancouver. He was held off the scoresheet and was a combined minus-3 on the night.
Analysis: Playing on the Preds' fourth line, Brandon Yip is supposed to be somewhat defensively responsible, but this game did nothing to reinforce that notion. The good news is, he's healthy and playing, but that's about the only fantasy upside you're going to find here.

Preds' Yip (Upper Body) Taken Off IR

News: Brandon Yip (upper body) has been taken off the injured reserve list, The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Brandon Yip was originally placed on the IR on Mar. 5 and has missed the Preds' past three games due to the injury. He has registered a total of five points (two goals, three assists) this season. Consider him day-to-day for the time being.

Preds' Yip Headed To IR

News: Brandon Yip (upper body) is headed to IR, the Associated Press reports.
Analysis: The move opens up a roster spot for Zach Boychuk, whom the Preds claimed off waivers from the Penguins on Tuesday.

Preds' Yip Will Not Play Monday

News: Brandon Yip (upper body) will not play Monday against the Kings, The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Brandon Yip left Saturday's game against the Sharks after San Jose defenseman Brad Stuart fell on him, and will not be able to suit up Monday. Matt Halischuk is expected to replace Yip in the Preds lineup when they take on the Kings.

Preds' Yip Suffers Upper-Body Injury Saturday

News: Brandon Yip left Saturday's game against the Sharks with an upper-body injury in the first period and didn't return, the Nashville Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Brandon Yip suffered the injury about four minutes in after Sharks defenseman Brad Stuart fell onto Yip. Coach Barry Trotz said Yip is doubtful to play Monday against the Kings, with his availability for the rest of the week remaining unclear at the moment.

Preds Re-Sign Yip

News: Brandon Yip has re-signed with the Predators, inking a one-year, one-way deal worth $750,000, reports the Tennessean.
Analysis: Brandon Yip mostly played a fourth line role for the Preds after arriving from Colorado via waivers in January. With just three goals and four assists in 25 regular-season games, Yip does not amount to much more than a depth player at this stage in his career. There's not much to get excited about from a fantasy perspective.

Preds' Yip Helps Bury Former Team

News: After sitting out as a healthy scratch the previous three games, Brandon Yip returned to the lineup Thursday night and scored his second goal of the season, helping the Preds defeat the Avalanche 4-2.
Analysis: Brandon Yip, who was placed on waivers by the Avs in mid-January before the Preds scooped him up, admitted to a certain added incentive in facing his former team. "Yeah, there's a little bit of a salty taste when a team lets you go," Yip said. "There is a business side to it. It's what they wanted to do, but after being there a couple of years and getting released like that, it's good motivation." Yip skated mostly on the Preds' fourth line alongside Paul Gaustad and Gabriel Bourque, and could see increased ice time in the coming weeks if he continues to make the most of his opportunities. Monitor closely.

Preds' Yip Serving As Injury Sub On Power Play

News: Brandon Yip saw some time on the power play during Tuesday's game against Chicago, according to the Tennessean.
Analysis: With Patric Hornqvist out with an upper-body injury, Brandon Yip is filling in for the time being. Fortunately, it's a situation he is accustomed to, as he saw some PP time with Colorado earlier in his career, and seven of his 24 career goals have come with the man advantage. With Hornqvist expected to remain out for Friday's tilt with the Red Wings, expect Yip to continue to see some time in Hornqvist's spot with the extra attacker.

Preds' Yip Off To Slow Start With New Team

News: Brandon Yip has just two points (1G, 1A) in five games since joining the Predators in January.
Analysis: Brandon Yip has been held off the scoresheet in four of those five games and he's been a healthy scratch twice, so in reality he's picked up right where he left off before he was placed on waivers by the Avalanche last month. He offers little to no fantasy value in most formats.

Preds Pairing Former BU Teammates Yip, Wilson

News: The Preds plan to reunite Brandon Yip on a line with former Boston University teammate Colin Wilson, according to the Denver Post.
Analysis: The last time Wilson and Brandon Yip played together at BU, they won a national championship in 2009, so the Preds are hoping to rekindle some of that chemistry. Yip, who was claimed off waivers from Colorado earlier this week, made a big splash with the Avs in his rookie season three years ago, scoring 19 points in just 32 games, but he gradually fell out of favor over the next two seasons and is now hoping to make a fresh start in Nashville. Yip has some fantasy upside, but we need to see more consistency from him before making any firm recommendations.

Predators Claim Yip

News: The Predators have claimed Brandon Yip off waivers from the Avalanche, Joshua Cooper of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Brandon Yip has nowhere to go but up with the Preds, after going without a point in 10 games with the Avs this season.

Avs Place Yip On Waivers

News: Brandon Yip has been placed on waivers, according to the Denver Post.
Analysis: This is hardly a surprise, as the struggling Brandon Yip has been either injured or a healthy scratch for most of this season. Furthermore, in the 10 games he's played, he has zero points. Yip will be assigned to AHL Lake Erie if no team claims him within 24 hours.

Avs' Yip Still On Sidelines As Healthy Scratch

News: Brandon Yip watched from the bench Friday as the Avs defeated Chicago 4-0, his seventh straight game as a healthy scratch.
Analysis: Brandon Yip has been available to play following a groin injury that kept him out for five games in mid-December, but just as Kyle Quincey found out last month, getting back into a hot team's lineup isn't easy. The Avs have won nine of 10 entering Saturday's tilt with St. Louis, and coach Joe Sacco is unlikely to tinker too much with a winning lineup. With zero points in just nine games for the Avs so far this season, you'd have to think Yip's future with the club is seriously in question at this point.

Avs' Yip No Longer On DL But Still Riding Coach's Bench

News: Brandon Yip has recovered from a recent groin injury but will likely sit out Friday's game against Tampa Bay as a healthy scratch, according to the Denver Post.
Analysis: Though healthy enough to play, coach Joe Sacco is trying to keep the Avs' current win streak alive, saying he will likely go with the same lineup that beat St. Louis 3-2 on Thursday. Brandon Yip may be on the outside looking in for awhile - make sure he stays on your fantasy bench.

Avs' Yip (Groin) Skating But Not Yet Game Ready

News: Brandon Yip (groin) took part in practice Wednesday but has not yet received clearance to return to the lineup, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Brandon Yip may be on the outside looking in once he's ready to return, as the Avs have won four of their past five games - including three straight - and coach Joe Sacco is not one to tinker with a winning lineup. Keep Yip nailed to your fantasy bench for now.

Avs' Yip Sidelined With Groin Injury

News: Brandon Yip, who missed Tuesday's game against San Jose, is out with a groin injury, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: It's been a tough year thus far for Brandon Yip, who missed the first six weeks of the season with a broken forearm. Since then, he's only played in nine games and has zero points to his credit. It's hard to find any fantasy relevance for Yip right now, even in the deepest of formats.
