Caps' Volpatti Joins AHL Squad For Practice

News: Aaron Volpatti (neck) was been cleared to beginning practicing with AHL Hershey on Tuesday, the Associated Press reports.
Analysis: Placed on the Capitals' non-roster injury list following training camp, Aaron Volpatti has been slow to recover from offseason neck surgery and still looks like he could need some more time to get healthy. It's not clear if he'll have a spot waiting for him with the Capitals or be placed on waivers once he's activated.

Caps' Volpatti Practices

News: Aaron Volpatti (neck) practiced with the team Monday, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Aaron Volpatti finally looks like he's close to returning, so keep an eye out for him to be assigned to AHL Hershey for a conditioning assignment in the coming days.

Caps' Volpatti Visits Specialist

News: Aaron Volpatti (neck) left the team Thursday to visit a specialist in Arizona, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: The meeting likely amounts to just a final check-up for Aaron Volpatti, who is attempting to receive clearance for a conditioning assignment at AHL Hershey. He'd likely remain with Hershey for two weeks before the Capitals would have to pull him off the assignment and determine whether or not to activate him from the non-roster injury list. If he ends up sticking with the Capitals, Volpatti would likely serve in a bottom-six capacity, limiting his overall impact as a fantasy option.

Caps' Volpatti Nearing AHL Stint

News: Aaron Volpatti (neck) is nearing a conditioning assignment with Hershey, The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: He'll likely see five or six games in the AHL before he's ready to return to the lineup for the Caps. Aaron Volpatti has been working in practice with a non-contact jersey for approximately one month as he continues to work his way back from the injury.

Caps' Volpatti Expected To Head Out On Assignment

News: Aaron Volpatti (neck) is expected to be assigned to AHL Hershey on a conditioning assignment, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Aaron Volpatti is ready to take part in game action after resuming practicing with full contact earlier this week. He's eligible to be activated from long-term injured reserve as soon as Sunday, so the Capitals could just send him to Hershey for the weekend before clearing a roster spot for his return to the NHL club.

Washington's Volpatti Practices With Contact

News: Aaron Volpatti (neck) ditched his no-contact jersey at Tuesday's practice, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Aaron Volpatti underwent neck fusion surgery several months ago and finally appears to be nearing the end of his recovery timetable. The Capitals placed him on long-term injured reserve to begin the season, but he'll be eligible to return Sunday, though the Caps won't necessarily activate him at that time. Once he's back in the fold, Volpatti will skate in a bottom-six role for Washington.

Caps' Volpatti Placed On LTIR

News: The Capitals placed Aaron Volpatti (neck) on long-term injured reserve Tuesday, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Per NHL rules, Aaron Volpatti must miss at least 10 games and 24 calendar days as a result of his placement on long-term injured reserve, keeping him out of commission until early November. Volpatti was able to get in a light practice Tuesday, but the Capitals are concerned his recovery from spinal fusion surgery could stretch until the latter portion of November.

Caps' Volpatti Recently Underwent Neck Surgery

News: General manager Brian MacLellan revealed Aaron Volpatti (neck) underwent spinal fusion surgery recently and is not yet cleared for contact, Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: MacLellan said Aaron Volpatti was skating well, but they aren't yet ready for him to take full practices with the team just yet. Given the competition for fourth line spots due to standout training camp performances by Michael Latta and Chris Brown, Volpatti will have his work cut out for him to make the team even if he is healthy by camp's end. In any case, his offensive shortcomings combined with the hurdles in making the roster make Volpatti a risky choice even in deep leagues.

News: Aaron Volpatti (left shoulder) was activated from injured reserve Saturday.

Caps' Volpatti Not Yet Skating

News: Aaron Volpatti (left shoulder) has not been cleared for practice, Katie Carrera of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Aaron Volpatti was limited to working out with the Capitals' strength coach on his own before practice, and still look to be far off from joining his teammates on the ice. He'll likely remain on injured reserve even after the Olympic break concludes.

Caps' Volpatti Misses Practice With Injury

News: Aaron Volpatti missed Monday's practice with an upper-body injury, Katie Carrera of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: With Aaron Volpatti and Eric Fehr (lower body) unable to practice after getting nicked up in Sunday's win over the Red Wings, the Capitals' injured forward list keeps on growing. Volpatti should be regarded as day-to-day and hasn't been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. the Islanders.

Caps' Volpatti Back On Ice Thursday

News: Aaron Volpatti (undisclosed) was on the ice for practice Thursday, Katie Carrera of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Aaron Volpatti left Tuesday's game with an undisclosed injury after he was involved in a fight with the Flyers' Adam Hall following Tom Wilson's brutal hit on Brayden Schenn. Assuming no setbacks from Thursday's session, the rugged winger should be good to go for Friday's contest against the Hurricanes.

Canucks Place Volpatti On Waivers

News: Aaron Volpatti was placed on waivers on Thursday, the Vancouver Province reports.

Canucks' Volpatti Competing For Roster Spot

News: Aaron Volpatti is expected to battle for one of the last roster spots in training camp, the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: Aaron Volpatti impressed in training camp last year, but a shoulder injury ended up sidelining him for much of the season. Even if he earns a spot on the roster to start the season, Volpatti will be deployed in a fourth-line role that offers little fantasy upside.

Canucks Re-Sign Volpatti

News: The Canucks re-signed Aaron Volpatti (shoulder) on Friday, the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: Aaron Volpatti inked a one-year deal for $600,000 to return to Vancouver. A shoulder injury limited Volpatti to 23 games in 2011-12, but he's expected to return at full strength next year and could earn a role on the Canucks' fourth line.

Canucks' Volpatti Nearing Return

News: Aaron Volpatti (shoulder) has improved his conditioning to the point where he might be cleared to play soon, the Canucks' official site reports.
Analysis: Aaron Volpatti has been sidelined since early December with a torn labrum in his shoulder. The hope has been he'd be able to return for the playoffs and that appears likely. He'll give the Canucks added depth, but don't expect a big role for the 26-year-old winger.

Canucks' Vo;patti Eyes Return For Playoffs

News: Aaron Volpatti, who's scheduled to undergo surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder this week, hopes to return for the playoffs, the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Aaron Volpatti's recovery will take three to six months. He'd add nice depth to the Canucks' playoff roster if he can make a speedy recovery, but Volpatti's standing as a fourth-line forward limits his upside in any playoff pools.

Canucks' Volpatti Spends Friday In Street Clothes

News: Aaron Volpatti was a healthy scratch Friday against the Blues, the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: He was replaced by Andrew Ebbett. Canucks coach Alain Vigneault likes to make tweaks to his lines, and as one of the final men on the roster, Aaron Volpatti will get his fair share of nights off.

News: As expected, Aaron Volpatti won a job on the Canucks' fourth line, the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Aaron Volpatti will join Victor Oreskovich and Maxim Lapierre on the fourth line. His role will be limited, which will make it hard for him to be a consistent fantasy option.
