Kings Will Sign McBain

News: Jamie McBain will be signed by the Kings on Tuesday, Lisa Dillman of the LA Times reports.
Analysis: Jamie McBain's contract will reportedly be worth the league minimum, and the Kings will save cap space by waiting until Tuesday to sign him. He's expected to provide the team with blue line depth while Robyn Regehr (undisclosed) and Slava Voynov (suspension) are sidelined.

McBain Signs PTO With Kings Affiliate

News: Jamie McBain signed a professional tryout contract Friday with the Kings' AHL affiliate in Manchester, James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail reports.
Analysis: Jamie McBain failed to win a roster spot during with tryout with the Coyotes in training camp, so he'll attempt to earn his way back to the NHL by showcasing his abilities for the Kings at Manchester. The 26-year-old tallied 17 points and a minus-13 rating over 69 games with the Sabres last season.

Coyotes Release McBain From PTO

News: Jamie McBain has been released from his professional tryout offer with the Coyotes, USA Today reports.
Analysis: Jamie McBain was forced to settle for a PTO after interest was mild in the veteran blueliner during free agency. McBain was a regular skater for the Sabres last season with 69 appearances, but he'll likely struggle to find a squad desperate enough to give that much ice time in 2014-15.

Sabres Do Not Qualify Defenseman McBain

News: The Sabres did not make a qualifying offer to Jamie McBain on Monday, reports John Vogl of The Buffalo News.
Analysis: Without a qualifying offer, Jamie McBain becomes an unrestricted free agent. Acquired from Carolina in exchange for Andrej Sekera, McBain scored 17 points in 69 games for the Sabres. Offensively, McBain was able to give the Sabres' power play some punch but, ultimately, his overall play wasn't good enough to be part of the team's plans for the future. The Sabres have a plethora of young prospects coming up the system, and this move opens up yet another regular spot for Rasmus Ristolainen, Nikita Zadorov, Chad Ruhwedel or Jake McCabe. At 26 years old, McBain still posseses some potential and his offensive ability and right-hand shot will be in demand come July 1 when free agency begins.

Sabres' McBain Pots Goal In Finale

News: Jamie McBain scored his sixth goal of the season in Sunday's season finale against the Islanders.
Analysis: Jamie McBain didn't come into the 2013-14 season with a ton of fantasy appeal and did little to change that by the end of the campaign, finishing with 17 points and a minus-13 rating over 69 games. He'll head into free agency this offseason.

Sabres' McBain Notches Two Assists

News: Jamie McBain gathered two assists in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Bruins.
Analysis: Jamie McBain continues to see frequent ice time for the Sabres, put his point totals (three goals, nine assists in 46 games) are still rather ordinary even by defenseman standards. Playing for the Sabres certainly doesn't help his plus/minus rating, making him a rather unattractive waiver wire pickup.

Sabres Scratch McBain Against Washington

News: After appearing in every single Sabres game since Nov. 30, Jamie McBain was a healthy scratch Tuesday against Washington.
Analysis: Jamie McBain was horrendous in Monday's 3-0 loss to Pittsburgh, and head coach Ted Nolan made him pay the price Tuesday by making him a healthy scratch. Acquired in a trade for Andrej Sekera, who is having a fine season in Carolina, McBain is having a relatively good season for Buffalo. He's already eclipsed last year's goal and point totals, and he's seen as a key part of the Sabres' right-side defense down the road. A good skater who provides offense for a team whose forwards have trouble scoring, it's safe to assume that he'll return to the lineup soon.

McBain Tallies Sabres' Lone Goal

News: Despite skating a relatively meager 19:15, Jamie McBain led the Sabres in shots (four) and scored the team's only goal in Thursday's shootout loss to Florida.
Analysis: Jamie McBain saw Tuesday's game against his old Carolina mates get canceled due to snow, but apparently the day off did him some good. Unfortunately, as has been too common this year, the rest of the Buffalo offense failed to show up. McBain's a low-end fantasy option, having managed just nine points in 31 games this year, but the 25-year-old does have long-term upside.

Sabres McBain On Top Power Play Unit

News: Jamie McBain draws back into the lineup and will play on Buffalo's first power play unit as Nikita Zadorov sits for Thursday night's game against the Rangers.
Analysis: Acquired in a trade from Carolina, the offensively gifted Jamie McBain has become a power play specialist for the Sabres. In seven appearances, McBain has three points and is the only Buffalo defenseman to score on the power play. Averaging 3:00 of power play time per game, it is only second to Christian Ehrhoff's 3:40. McBain will attempt to spark Buffalo's 27th-ranked power play against a Rangers team that's collected the ninth most penalty minutes in the league. The Sabres will get plenty of chances with the man advantage but it's up to McBain to take advantage of that if he wants to play regularly. Mark Pysyk, Tyler Myers and Rasmus Ristolainen will handle duties for the second unit.

Sabres' McBain Picks Up Two Points

News: Jamie McBain contributed a goal and an assist -- both on the power play -- in Tuesday's loss to the Lightning.
Analysis: Unfortunately, after McBrain's late-first-period tally put the Sabres up 2-1, the Buffalo offense went right to sleep. Though he was scratched for the first two games, Jamie McBain figures to continue slotting in the lineup for the foreseeable future, as the Sabres are trusting him with second-line defensive minutes in the absence of Henrik Tallinder. While Tallinder may return in about a week, McBain is making a case to stick in the lineup at someone else's expense.

McBain To Make Sabres Debut

News: Jamie McBain will slot into the lineup Saturday due to an injury to Henrik Tallinder, WGR550.com reports.
Analysis: With Tallinder definitely out for this one, it was between Jamie McBain and call-up Alexander Sulzer for the last starting spot, but it'll go to McBain this one. McBain, who can chip in with some occasional offense, will probably be paired with Tyler Myers, Tallinder's usual partner.

McBain Traded To Sabres

News: The Sabres have acquired Jamie McBain and a second-round pick from Carolina in exchange for Andrej Sekera.
Analysis: The 25-year-old Jamie McBain notched just eight points in 40 games this past season, but he has previously displayed some offensive upside and could re-emerge as a fantasy option in 2013-14 with the change of scenery he'll be getting thanks to this deal.

Hurricanes' McBain Not Warming Up Tuesday

News: Jamie McBain was not spotted at warmups before Tuesday's game against the Caps, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News and Observer reports.
Analysis: With no injury reported as of yet, and the NHL trade deadline approaching, it's fair to wonder if Jamie McBain might be on the move.

Quiet Return For Hurricanes' McBain

News: Jamie McBain skated 18:32 in his return to the lineup Thursday, recording no points, no shots on goal, no hits and one blocked shot in a 4-1 win over Pittsburgh. He'd been out for a week with an upper-body injury.
Analysis: Not a very impactful return for the young defenseman, but the important thing is he's back out on the ice.

Hurricanes' McBain Set To Return

News: Jamie McBain (upper body) is in line to play Thursday against the Penguins, the Associated Press reports.
Analysis: The Hurricanes figure to get a nice lift Thursday with Jeff Skinner, Tim Gleason and Tim Brent also in line to return. Jamie McBain, who missed four games with his unspecified injury, has recorded four points in 11 games to date.

Canes’ McBain Return Uncertain

News: Jamie McBain could miss a couple of weeks with an unspecified injury, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News and Observer reports.
Analysis: With Jamie McBain, who has four points in 11 games this season, out, the Hurricanes have recalled Ryan Murphy from the OHL.

Hurricanes' McBain Banged Up

News: Jamie McBain is dealing with an unspecified injury, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News and Observer reports.
Analysis: With Jamie McBain -- who has four points in 11 games to date -- joining the ranks of the team's injured blueliners, the Hurricanes have recalled Ryan Murphy from the OHL.

Canes' McBain Seeing Regular Minutes

News: Jamie McBain has played in 10 of the Hurricanes' last 11 games since sitting out as a healthy scratch for two consecutive contests back in late January.
Analysis: He also has two assists in his last three games and also saw some first-line power play duty against the Maple Leafs on Thursday. Now that Joni Pitkanen has been placed on IR with a lower body injury, Jamie McBain could see a bump in his ice time as a result. Don't be afraid to take a flyer on him if you're in a deeper fantasy format.

Carolina's McBain A Healthy Scratch

News: Jamie McBain was a healthy scratch in Saturday's loss to Florida.
Analysis: He's behind Bobby Sanguinetti on the depth chart for the sixth defenseman and it looks like he'll be inactive most nights.

Hurricanes' McBain Signs In Finland

News: Jamie McBain has signed with the Pelicans of the SM-liiga in Finland, Elite Prospects reports.
Analysis: Jamie McBain will join fellow NHLer Antti Niemi on the team while the lockout continues. The SM-liiga is Finland's top league.

Hurricanes' McBain Re-Signed To A Two-Year Deal

News: Jamie McBain was re-signed to a two-year, $1.8 million contract with the Hurricanes on Monday, the Toronto Globe and Mail reports.
Analysis: Jamie McBain was Carolina's highest scoring defender last season and seems to have a bright future ahead of him. The contract is cap-friendly for the Hurricanes to boot, creating some financial flexibility for Carolina.

Carolina's McBain Reaches 19 Assists

News: Jamie McBain recorded his 19th assist of the season Thursday night as the Canes downed the visiting Canadiens in a shootout. The Minnesota native now has 27 points on the year, the most of any Hurricane defender.
Analysis: Jamie McBain will finish off 2011-2012 with a stat line very similar to the one he posted in 2010-2011. Though #4 has taken a step back in the penalty minutes column, fantasy owners have to like the young blue-liner's increase in shots on net this year.

Canes' McBain To Be Paired With Joni Pitkanen

News: Jamie McBain is most likely to be paired with Joni Pitkanen when Pitkanen returns Wednesday night, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News and Observer reports.
Analysis: Presumably, this means that Jamie McBain will take a more stay-at-home role on defense while Pitkanen pushes forward into the offensive zone.

McBain Nets Goal For Canes

News: Jamie McBain scored his second goal in three games, notching his seventh tally of the season in Tuesday's win over Nashville.
Analysis: Jamie McBain saw 3:10 of power-play time in the win, almost two minutes less than rookie Justin Faulk. McBain's numbers have come in bunches this season, but he has a serviceable 23 points on the season.

McBain Active In Carolina Win

News: Jamie McBain grabbed a goal and an assist in Monday's win over Montreal. The promising young defender with the offensive flair had been quiet of late, with just two points since the calendar turned to January.
Analysis: Jamie McBain is still more potential at this point, but those that expected him to make a jump following his 30-point rookie campaign have been disappointed. A strong finish can put him over 30 points, but he has endured many barren stretches this season.
