RFA Connolly Gets Qualifying Offer From Bruins

News: The Bruins have extended a qualifying offer to Brett Connolly, csnne.com reports.
Analysis: The same applies to fellow forward Ryan Spooner, with both restricted free agents ticketed for regular duty this coming season, more so with the the team having parted ways with forwards Carl Soderberg and Milan Lucic. While it's too early to get a great read on how the B's lines might shake out next season, Brett Connolly has a shot to land a top-six role and in such a scenario, he could emerge on the fantasy radar. He's coming off a 2014-15 campaign in which he recorded 12 goals and 17 points in 55 NHL games, including five in a Boston uniform following his trade from Tampa Bay.

Productive Bruins Debut For Connolly

News: Brett Connolly, making his return from a finger injury and his Bruins debut, was key to Thursday's comeback win over Detroit, assisting on his team's first goal as well as the game-winner late in the third period.
Analysis: He skated just a modest 12:44 in his first game as a Bruin, but certainly fit right in despite having missed a month of action thanks to the finger issue. Brett Connolly never got a great chance in Tampa Bay, but it wouldn't be terribly surprising to see 2010's No. 6 overall pick flourish in Boston.

Bruins' Connolly Set To Make Debut Thursday

News: Brett Connolly (finger) is taking part in line rushes during the Bruins' pregame warmups, suggesting he'll play Thursday against the Red Wings, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Acquired by the Bruins prior to the trade deadline, Brett Connolly suffered a broken finger in his second practice with the team and missed a month due to the injury. He was initially projected to sit out the rest of the season, but improved quicker than anticipated and now looks poised to make his long-awaited team debut. The winger is slated to skate on the fourth line with Chris Kelly and Gregory Campbell.

Bruins' Connolly Could Play Thursday

News: When asked if Brett Connolly (finger) will play Thursday against Detroit, coach Claude Julien said "we'll see."
Analysis: Brett Connolly's status for the contest probably won't be clarified until pre-game warmups, though if he does suit up, he'll likely debut on the B's fourth line, making him a speculative fantasy play in such a scenario.

Bruins' Connolly Poised To Return

News: Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe suggests that there's a good chance that Brett Connolly (finger) will suit up Thursday against the Red Wings.
Analysis: "I feel good enough to go," Brett Connolly indicated. "I don't really think the finger can get worse. I think I'm pretty much ready to go." Look for added info on the winger's status to arrive following the Bruins' morning skate, but based on Wednesday's practice, if Connolly does join the B's lineup Thursday, he'll likely work on the team's fourth line.

Bruins' Connolly Nears Return

News: Brett Connolly (finger) -- who absorbed contact at practice Wednesday -- hasn't been ruled out for Thursday's game against Detroit.
Analysis: Per csnne.com, Brett Connolly saw some work with the B's fourth line during Wednesday's practice and even if the winger doesn't play Thursday, his return to action doesn't seem far off at this stage. Prior to injuring his finger back on March 4, Connolly recorded 12 goals and 15 points in 50 games for the Lighting.

Bruins' Connolly Progressing

News: Brett Connolly (finger) took part in contact drills at end of Wednesday's practice, Joe Haggerty of CSNNE.com reports.
Analysis: Absorbing contact represents further progress for Brett Connolly, who suffered a broken right index finger back on March 4. The Bruins have five more regular season games on tap and it now looks like there's a solid chance we'll see Connolly in the lineup before the team's slate concludes.

Bruins' Connolly Skates In Warmups

News: Brett Connolly (finger) skated during the Bruins' pregame warmups Tuesday, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: While Brett Connolly won't make his team debut in Tuesday's tilt with the Panthers, his participation in warmups is further evidence that he's nearly recovered from the broken finger. He could start seeing increased contact work and upcoming practices before getting cleared for the Bruins' final few games of the regular season.

Bruins' Connolly Progressing

News: According to coach Claude Julien, Brett Connolly (finger) is "getting closer" to a return to action.
Analysis: Brett Connolly has been able to skate with the B's, so once he gets the green light from the team's doctors, the forward's return will largely hinge on his comfort level while shooting and battling for pucks.

Bruins' Connolly Takes Rushes

News: Brett Connolly (finger) took part in line rushes during Friday's practice.
Analysis: Brett Connolly alternated in and out with David Pastrnak as the right wing on the Bruins' second pairing. The fact that he didn't have a spot to himself suggests that Connolly probably won't be an option over the next couple of games for the Bruins, but the team isn't closing the door on the forward joining the lineup before season's end. Connolly's progress will remain under evaluation over the next couple of days before the Bruins reach a possible target date for his return.

Bruins' Connolly Progressing Quickly

News: Brett Connolly (fractured right finger) practiced with the team at Thursday's morning session, CSN New England's Joe Haggerty reports.
Analysis: Brett Connolly was only skating as an extra forward during the session, but his presence with the team represents a positive step nonetheless after he was previously limited to skating on his own. The 22-year-old was initially expected to miss the remainder of the regular season after suffering the injury in his second day of practice with the Bruins back in early March, but the forward seems to be progressing quicker than anticipated. With nine games still left on the Bruins' schedule, he just might have enough time to suit up for the team before the season draws to a close.

Bruins' Connolly Back On The Ice

News: Brett Connolly, who suffered a broken right index finger on March 4, has resumed skating with the Bruins, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Brett Connolly is still sporting a cast on his right hand, so his return is not imminent. That said, given that Connolly is back on the ice again, conditioning shouldn't be much of an issue by the time his finger heals up. At that point, Connolly's ability to play will hinge on how well he is able to grip his stick and shoot the puck.

Bruins' Connolly Undergoes Finger Surgery

News: Brett Connolly (broken finger) underwent successful surgery Thursday morning, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: As was suggested earlier in the week, Brett Connolly will be forced to miss the next six weeks while he heals up, taking a return before the end of the regular season off the table. The Bruins failed to get a single game from Connolly following his acquisition prior to Monday's trade deadline.

Bruins' Connolly Suffers Broken Finger

News: Brett Connolly broke his finger in practice Wednesday and will be out six weeks, Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Brett Connolly took a puck to the hand during practice and will have to wait to make his Bruins debut after being acquired by the club on Monday's trade deadline. The six-week timetable takes him past the team's last regular season game, so Connolly's season could be over even if the Bruins do make the playoffs. The 22-year-old has 15 points through 50 games to date.

Bruins' Connolly Exits Practice Early

News: Brett Connolly left Wednesday's practice early after taking a puck to the hand.
Analysis: Per the report, the newly acquired Brett Connolly is being evaluated by team doctors, which clouds his status for Thursday's game against the Flames.

Bruins Acquire Connolly

News: Brett Connolly was traded to Bruins early Monday morning for second-round picks in 2015 and 2016, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: The Bruins may be able to find a more consistent role for Brett Connolly, and it's clear from the package that they gave up that he's going to become a reasonable large part of their plans. Connolly has 15 points (12 G, 3 A) and a plus-4 rating through 50 games with the Bolts this season.

Goal, Fight For Bolts' Connolly

News: Brett Connolly scored his 10th goal and collected seven penalty minutes Tuesday in an overtime loss to Nashville
Analysis: A second-period holding penalty immediately followed by a fight contributed to a nice, round fantasy line for the No. 6 pick in the 2010 draft. The 10 goals are a nice start, but Brett Connolly still owns just 14 points on the season. Still, he's showing good physicality and has a track record of production at the AHL level, so Connolly still has plenty of upside at age 22.

Bolts' Connolly: Three Assists In Last Two Games

News: Brett Connolly picked up another assist in Tuesday's loss to the Predators. He now has three assists in his last two games.
Analysis: He has elite skills, but opportunity, ice time and stalled development have limited his impact in the NHL. His fantasy value remains limited right now, but it's hard to give up on him in dynasty formats.

Bolts' Connolly Dishes Out Two Asissts

News: Brett Connolly dished out two assists in Sunday's win over the Ducks.
Analysis: Brett Connolly now has 12 points (nine goals) in 41 games. Considering he's only seeing 11:54 of average ice time and has been a healthy scratch at times this season, Connolly will need to see increased ice time and show more consistency before we can recommend him in anything but the deepest of fantasy leagues.

Bolts To Make Connolly Healthy Scratch Thursday

News: Brett Connolly will be a healthy scratch Thursday against the Stars, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Brett Connolly gives the Lightning a dash more of offensive upside in their bottom six, but coach Jon Cooper will opt for the speed of J.T. Brown, who reenters the lineup in place of the winger. Look for Connolly to draw back in Saturday against the Kings.

Bolts' Connolly To Sit Tuesday

News: Brett Connolly will be a healthy scratch for Tuesday's game against the Bruins, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Brett Connolly had been seeing some time on both scoring lines and on the power play recently but wasn't able to do much with the opportunity, notching just one point in five January contests. He'll head to the press box while J.T. Brown assumes his lineup spot.

Bolts' Connolly Gets Sixth Goal Of Season

News: Brett Connolly scored the Lightning's only goal in a 3-1 loss to the Islanders on Saturday night. The goal was a tip-in.
Analysis: It was his sixth goal in 23 games, but funny enough -- those are the only points he has this season. And he hasn't picked up an assist since 2011-12. He has talent, but he needs to show more to be fantasy-relevant.

Bolts' Connolly Nets Two In Win

News: Brett Connolly potted a pair of goals in Monday's 6-3 win over the Rangers.
Analysis: Brett Connolly had not recorded a point since the middle of October after being forced out of action for 12 games with a lower body injury. He now has four goals, matching a career-high. He may be able to set another personal best if he can get more than 15 points, but he won't add much more than that.

Bolts' Connolly Returns Thursday

News: Brett Connolly (lower body) will be back in the lineup Thursday against the Maple Leafs, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Brett Connolly cleared the final hurdle for his return by participating fully in the team's morning skate, where he was slotted on the fourth line with Brenden Morrow and Brian Boyle. The 22-year-old had two points in eight games prior to miss the team's last 12 contests with the lower-body ailment.

Lightning's Connolly Hopes To Play Thursday

News: Brett Connolly (lower body) hopes to play Thursday against the Maple Leafs, Erik Erlendsson of The Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Brett Connolly will miss his 12th straight game Tuesday night, but he feels he is ready to play, and hopes to be able to do so Thursday.
