Thiessen Signs With Ducks

News: Brad Thiessen signed a contract with AHL Norfolk on Thursday, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Brad Thiessen gives the Ducks some organizational depth at goalie. He spent the last four years with the Penguins, getting most of his work with AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton while posting a 2.44 goals-against average and a .907 save percentage in 149 AHL games.

Pittsburgh Re-Signs Thiessen

News: Brad Thiessen signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Penguins on Saturday, PittsburghPenguins.com reports.
Analysis: He'll initially be listed on the team's NHL roster rather than the AHL. His numbers were ugly last year, both in the NHL and AHL, but the team could get decent depth value out of him if he can show the AHL production he did from 2009 to 2010, both of which were seasons where he posted save percentages of .914 or better.

Pittsburgh Sends Thiessen To AHL

News: Brad Thiessen was assigned to the AHL on Thursday, Penguins.NHL.com reports.
Analysis: With a save percentage of just .858 in five games, Brad Thiessen clearly could use a break from the NHL.

Thiessen Plays Well For Pittsburgh In Relief Tuesday

News: Brad Thiessen made seven saves without allowing a goal after relieving Marc-Andre Fleury on Tuesday.
Analysis: The rookie goalie's performance didn't mean too much in the overall game -- Pittsburgh lost by the score of 5-3 -- but he needed a confidence booster after giving up eight goals to Ottawa on Saturday.

Brad Thiessen

Thiessen Starting Saturday For Pittsburgh

News: Brad Thiessen will start against Ottawa on Saturday, Penguins.NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Brad Thiessen (3-0) has an unimpressive save percentage (.897) on the year, but his excellent supporting cast makes him a good bet to get a win most of the time.

Thiessen Secures Pittsburgh Win

News: Brad Thiessen stopped 26 of 30 shots in Tuesday's victory over Winnipeg, his third win of the season in as many starts.
Analysis: It's nice when you receive eight goals from your teammates, but Brad Thiessen probably would have wanted the win with less goals sneaking past him. Regardless, Thiessen will be used in spot starts to spell Marc-Andre Fleury and will not play much.

Thiessen Gets Tuesday Start For Pens

News: Brad Thiessen will start for the Penguins on Tuesday night against Winnipeg, according to the Penguins' Twitter Feed.
Analysis: Brad Thiessen has won both of his starts for Pittsburgh. The Pens have lost one home game since Jan. 10, making the rookie goalie a good play.

Brad Thiessen

Thiessen Could See Several Starts For Pittsburgh

News: With Pittsburgh skating 14 times in the next 24 days, Brad Thiessen could see several starts.
Analysis: Usual backup Brent Johnson still hasn't returned to practice. Brad Thiessen has won both of his starts in a Penguins sweater and might make for a decent pickup in deep leagues.

Thiessen Starting Wednesday For Penguins

News: Brad Thiessen is starting for the Penguins in their game against the Leafs on Wednesday, according to Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio.

Pens' Thiessen Wins NHL Debut

News: Brad Thiessen stopped 24 of 26 shots to beat Columbus in his NHL debut Sunday. He also suffered a bloody nose from the post-game celebration, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Brad Thiessen stepped in nicely after Brent Johnson was sidelined with an illness, but this promotion likely is a short-term one.

Penguins' Thiessen To Make NHL Debut Sunday

News: Brad Thiessen will start Sunday's game against the Blue Jackets, the Penguins' Twitter Feed reports.
Analysis: Brad Thiessen will be making his NHL debut Sunday and on paper, it looks like a good spot for him, as the Penguins are coming off an 8-1 thumping of the Lightning on Saturday and the Blue Jackets rank last overall in the NHL.

Brad Thiessen

Thiessen To Debut For Pens Sunday?

News: Brad Thiessen could make his NHL debut for Pittsburgh on Sunday, according to coach Dan Bylsma, the Penguins' Twitter Feed reports.
Analysis: "It's certainly a possibility," Bylsma said of Brad Thiessen's chances of starting against the Blue Jackets on Sunday afternoon. Thiessen hasn't stood out in the AHL like he did last year -- he's got a 20-14-2 record, 2.88 GAA, .885 save percentage -- but he has played better lately. Thiessen might be a decent pickup against the lowly Blue Jackets.

Thiessen Recalled By Pittsburgh

News: Pittsburgh recalled Brad Thiessen on Friday, PittsburghPenguins.com reports.
Analysis: Brad Thiessen was brought up to serve as backup in the event that Brent Johnson (illness) can't play against Tampa Bay on Saturday.

Thiessen Sent Back Down By Penguins

News: The Penguins have re-assigned Brad Thiessen to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Brad Thiessen, who was recalled by Pittsburgh on an emergency basis, serving as a backup Tuesday, was around just long enough to score a Primanti Bothers sandwich, but his NHL playing debut will need to wait.

Brad Thiessen

Pittsburgh Recalls Thiessen Tuesday

News: Pittsburgh recalled Brad Thiessen on Tuesday, Penguins.NHL.com reports.
Analysis: No injuries have been reported regarding Marc-Andre Fleury or Brent Johnson, so Brad Thiessen presumably doesn't stand a good chance of seeing the ice on this call up. He has yet to play in an NHL game.

Thiessen Improving On Baby Pens

News: Brad Thiessen has rebounded from his struggles to put up a 4-0 record with a 2.50 GAA and .915 save percentage in his last four games for the Baby Pens, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
Analysis: Brad Thiessen won only three games from Nov. 11 to Jan. 7, going 3-8-2. He'll be a free agent after the season and will need a big finish to boost his value. Whether he sticks with Pittsburgh likely depends on his performance in the next couple months.

Pens Send Thiessen Out Wednesday

Analysis: Brad Thiessen is stuck behind Marc-Andre Fleury and Brent Johnson on the depth chart. He played well in camp, giving the organization confidence in him should something happen to Fleury or Johnson.

Pens' Thiessen Looks Good Saturday

News: Brad Thiessen played well Saturday, stopping 16 of 17 shots in a 4-1 win, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Brad Thiessen is set to start the season in the AHL so long as Marc-Andre Fleury and Brent Johnson remain healthy. "Marc-Andre Fleury is, will be and has been our No. 1 goalie, and Brent Johnson has been a very capable and veteran backup," coach Dan Bylsma said. "It's tough to get by that, unless there's an injury." Johnson was named the AHL's Baz Bastien winner as the top tender last year, leading the league with 35 wins and seven shutouts. He also posted a 1.94 ERA and .922 save percentage.

Thiessen Re-Signs With Penguins

News: The Penguins have re-signed Thiessen to a one-year contract, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: In 46 games for AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, Thiessen recorded a 35-8-1 record, 1.94 goals-against average and a .922 save percentage. Keeping him in the fold helps give the Penguins some nice goaltending depth behind Marc-Andre Fleury.

Penguins Reassign Thiessen

News: The Penguins reassigned Thiessen to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Tuesday, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Thiessen served as the backup goalie for the last three games, but this move serves an an indication that Brent Johnson (neck) is ready to return to that role.

Brad Thiessen

Pitt Recalls Thiessen

News: Pittsburgh recalled Thiessen on Thursday, PittsburghPenguins.com reports.
Analysis: Thiessen was called up due to Brent Johnson suffering an upper-body injury. He's been killing it in the AHL, but Thiessen is unlikely to get much work for the Penguins.

Thiessen Getting Plenty of Action in Camp

News: Thiessen started and lost an intrasquad scrimmage on Monday by the score of 2-1, the Penguins' Web site reports.
Analysis: Thiessen overtook John Curry as the team's No. 1 goalie at Wilkes-Barre last year and could see time in Pittsburgh if either goalie ahead of him gets hurt.

Brad Thiessen

Penguins cut a bunch Wednesday

News: The Penguins sent D Wade Brookbank, LW Luca Caputi, C Dustin Jeffrey, RW Nick Johnson, RW Konstantin Pushkarev, C Wyatt Smith, LW Eric Tangradi, C Joe Vitale, RW Tim Wallace, D Robert Bortuzzo, D Jonathan D'Aversa, D Chris Lee and G Brad Thiessen to the AHL on Wednesday. First-round draft pick D Simon Despres has been sent to Saint John of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.
Analysis: Tangradi and Caputi are talented young prospects who had a shot at making the Pens squad, but there just wasn't room for them. They are the only real long-term keepers in this group for the time being, so ignore the others in all formats.
