Analysis: Bobby Butler, who has recorded 45 points in 64 games for San Antonio to date, has yet to appear in an NHL game this season, but he does have 48 points in 128 career NHL contests to his credit. He'll bolster the Panthers' depth up front.

Panthers' Butler Clears Waivers

News: Bobby Butler cleared waivers Saturday, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

Analysis: After an initial surge of production upon signing with the Senators in 2010, Bobby Butler has been struggling to hold a steady NHL roster spot since. If he clears waivers, he'll head to the Rampage and await an opportunity in South Florida later this season.

Predators' Butler Traded To Panthers

News: Bobby Butler was traded to the Panthers on Friday in exchange for defenseman T.J. Brennan, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
Analysis: Not exactly an earth-shattering trade, but both players should get a shot to earn significant playing time with their new teams. Bobby Butler was waived by the Devils after scoring just 2 points in 14 games last season, though he tallied nine points in 20 games after the Predators picked him up.

Butler Scores First Goal With Nashville

News: Bobby Butler scored one of Nashville's goals in Friday's loss to Dallas, his first tally with Nashville.
Analysis: Bobby Butler started the season with the Devils, but was waived after 13 games without a point; he has not fared much better with Nashville, with a modest five points through 14 games.

Devils Place Butler On Waivers

News: The Devils have placed Bobby Butler on waivers, Darren Dreger of TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Bobby Butler was not much of a factor for the Devils this season, as he registered just two points in 14 games this season. Coach Peter DeBoer said he has no plans to play Butler on Monday if he clears waivers. Butler was one of several New Jersey players responsible for allowing a shorthanded goal in Saturday's loss to Buffalo and did not play at all following that goal.

Bobby Butler, RW, FLA

Bobby Butler

Butler Opens New Jersey Account

News: Bobby Butler scored his first goal as a Devil in Saturday's win over Pittsburgh, also adding an assist in the 3-1 victory. Both points came on the power play.
Analysis: Bobby Butler looked comfortable during the scant 12:43 he played in the contest, securing his first two points of the season following his AHL call-up earlier in the week. Of Butler's 12:43 of ice time, 6:33 of it came on the power play, making him well worth a look in deeper leagues. Butler plays at even strength on the team's fourth line with pylon Krys Barch and Jacob Josefson, though Ilya Kovalchuk does join him and Josefson occasionally.

Devils' Butler Will Play Sunday

News: Bobby Butler will play Sunday against the Islanders, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: Bobby Butler was recalled Saturday, and he will be making his Devils' debut Sunday, skating in a line with Krys Barch and Jacob Josefson. He could also see some time on the second power play unit.

Devils' Butler Recalled From AHL

News: Bobby Butler was recalled from AHL Albany on Saturday.
Analysis: Bobby Butler is expected to make his debut with the big club on Sunday against the Islanders. Prior to his callup, he was leading Albany with 27 points over 37 games.

Butler Likely To Join Devils

News: Bobby Butler will, in all likelihood, be called up from Albany (AHL) on Tuesday, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: Bobby Butler has been the team's leading scorer in the AHL and played in Monday's AHL All-Star Game in Providence. The Devils are in need of a boost in terms of generating offensive chances and they feel Butler can provide that spark. Look for Butler to see some top six minutes, as the Devils are trying to find a third forward for their top duo of Travis Zajac and Ilya Kovalchuk.

Bobby Butler

Devils' Butler Clears Waivers

News: Bobby Butler officially cleared waivers on Saturday according to TSN.ca but is likely to stay with the Devils for the start of the season.
Analysis: As reported earlier by Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record it was simply a procedural move to allow Bobby Butler the opportunity to return to Albany to play in the AHL All-Star Game, a nod he just recently received. If he does stay with the Devils, he should have strong fantasy value as he should see plenty of minutes on the ice this season.

1/18/2013

Bobby Butler, RW, FLA

Bobby Butler

Butler Waived By Devils

News: The Devils placed Bobby Butler on waivers Friday, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: This is more of a procedural move for the Devils, as Bobby Butler will be on the team's 23-man roster should he not be claimed by another team. However, by placing him on waivers, the Devils would be eligible to return Butler to Albany (AHL), where he was honored with an All-Star Game selection. Odds are Butler will remain with the Devils should he clear waivers, but stay tuned. Should he remain with the Devils, expect Butler to see top-6 minutes.

Butler Skating On Devils' Top Line

News: Bobby Butler has been skating with first-line center Travis Zajac during the first few days of training camp, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports. Butler led the Albany Devils in scoring during the lockout with 15 goals in 32 games.
Analysis: Bobby Butler has also been seeing time with the team's power play units and likely will be featured on one of the team's top two scoring lines. He's been playing with confidence in the AHL and the Devils are in need of a scoring boost. Butler has skill and is well worth considering as a waiver pick up or a late addition in very deep leagues.

Butler Signs With Devils

News: Bobby Butler agreed to a one-year, two-way deal with the Devils on Thursday, NorthJersey.com reports.
Analysis: Bobby Butler had his contract bought out by the Senators on July 27 after he registered only 12 points in 56 NHL games last season. He will be near the bottom of the depth chart for the Devils, and could very likely start the season in the AHL.

7/27/2012

Bobby Butler, RW, FLA

Bobby Butler

Sens Buy Out Butler

News: Bobby Butler had the remainder of his contract bought out by the Senators on Friday, NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Bobby Butler, 25, recorded 16 points (6G, 10A) in 56 games for the Senators last season. The winger notched 21 points (10G, 11A) in just 36 contests back in 2010-11, and he'll likely get a fresh start with another club.

Sens' Butler Returns To Lineup

News: Bobby Butler will be in the lineup for Friday's game against the Canadiens, James Gordon of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: Bobby Butler has been a healthy scratch the past four games, but will replace Kaspars Daugavins on Friday. "We have depth in our lineup and we're trying to assess it on a game-by-game basis, who gives us a better opportunity to win, and today we feel that putting Butler in will give us a better chance," Senators coach Paul MacLean said.

Ottawa's Butler Gets Game Winner Wednesday

News: Bobby Butler scored the game-winning goal in Ottawa's 6-2 thumping of Florida on Wednesday night. He now has six points (1G, 5A) in his last four games.
Analysis: Since being re-inserted into the lineup on Feb. 9 after being a healthy scratch for several games, Bobby Butler's play has showed a marked improvement. Part of that has to do with the fact that he's once again playing on Ottawa's No. 1 line with Jason Spezza and Milan Michalek. Another reason is that he's also fully recovered from a groin injury that he tried to play through during training camp and the early part of the regular season.

Sens' Butler Getting Top-Line Look?

News: Bobby Butler may get a look on the Sens' top line in the near future after skating with Jason Spezza and Milan Michalek on Wednesday, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Although he's been a healthy scratch at times this season and has just nine points in 41 contests, Bobby Butler could see a significant increase in value if he's able to develop chemistry with his new linemates and carve out a larger role.

Ottawa's Butler Draws Into Lineup Sunday Night

News: Bobby Butler will be in Ottawa's lineup for Sunday night's Battle of Ontario reports TSN's Brent Wallace.
Analysis: With Daniel Alfredsson (undisclosed) likely suffering from concussion-like syptoms, Bobby Butler will draw back into the lineup for the first time since October 13. In two games this season, Butler has no points with only one shot on goal.

Sens' Butler Returns To Practice

News: Bobby Butler, who has been out with a groin injury, made his return to practice on Friday according to the Ottawa Citizen
Analysis: Bobby Butler is definitely making good progress and a return doesn't sound that far off. According to coach Paul MacLean, "he needs some conditioning, but if he's needed to play, he can."

Senators' Butler Skates Saturday

News: Bobby Butler (groin) skated Saturday, TSN's Brent Wallace reports.
Analysis: Bobby Butler will be out awhile longer, but it's encouraging to see that he is making progress in his recovery.

Sens' Butler's Injury Worse Than Originally Thought

News: Bobby Butler's groin injury looks to be a longer-term problem reports Sportsnet's Ian Mendes.
Analysis: He could go on injured reserve if the problem persists much longer. Keep Bobby Butler on your bench until he's fully recovered, which will likely be in weeks and not days.

Sens' Butler Headed To IR?

News: Bobby Butler (groin) won't play Tuesday and may be headed to IR, Brent Wallace of TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: The Sens haven't made a roster move yet, but don't be surprised if something comes down prior to Tuesday's game. Owners in weekly leagues should probably go another direction on the wing for at least the upcoming lineup period.
