Diaz Joins Rangers

News: The Rangers signed Raphael Diaz to a one-year, $700,000 contract Wednesday, NJ.com reports.
Analysis: Raphael Diaz, who notched four points in 56 games this past season for the Flames, joins the Rangers for a second stint with the team. He'll boost the Blueshirts' blue line depth in 2015-16, but the 29-year-old remains a break or two away from fantasy consideration.

Flames' Diaz Set To Return

News: Raphael Diaz (lower body) is slated to play Tuesday against the Ducks, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Analysis: Based on the team's pre-game skate, Raphael Diaz -- who last suited up on April 2 -- figures to work on the Flames' third defensive pairing Tuesday, along with David Schlemko.

Flames' Diaz Skates Sunday

News: Raphael Diaz participated in morning skate Sunday, the Calgary Sun reports.
Analysis: Raphael Diaz has not played since April 2nd, but with three consecutive practices under his belt, it looks like his return is near. While he won't necessarily be ready to go for Sunday night's game, it would be a surprise if he did not participate in this series.

Flames' Diaz Practices Again On Saturday

News: Raphael Diaz (lower body) fully participated in the Flames' practice on Saturday.
Analysis: Raphael Diaz has now logged full participation in back-to-back practices, and has a legitimate chance of returning to Calgary's lineup on Sunday for Game 2 of the Flames' series with Anaheim. Calgary should provide an update on his status prior to puck drop on Sunday.

Flames' Diaz (Lower Body) Practices Friday

News: Raphael Diaz (lower body) took part in an optional practice Friday, Randy Sportak of the Calgary Sun reports.
Analysis: Raphael Diaz continues to work his way back from a lower-body injury that has held him out for an extended period of time. It's unclear if or when he will return this season, but it could come this series if all goes well.

Diaz Joining Flames For Trip

News: Raphael Diaz (lower body) traveled with the Flames to Anaheim for Thursday's Game 1, Roger Millions of Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: Raphael Diaz won't be a candidate to play Thursday, but the fact that he's traveling with the team suggests he might be ready to resume skating. Though the 29-year-old hasn't played since April 2, he could be an option later in the series if he's able to get in a few practices over the next few days.

Flames' Diaz Dealing With Lower-Body Injury

News: Raphael Diaz has been out since April 2 with a lower-body injury, the Calgary Sun reports.
Analysis: Raphael Diaz has been unable to resume skating with the Flames yet and looks doubtful to be a contributor during the team's first-round series with the Canucks. Corey Potter has been filling his spot on the Flames' third pairing over the last few weeks.

Flames' Diaz Unlikely To Play Tuesday

News: Raphael Diaz (undisclosed) isn't likely to play Tuesday against the Coyotes, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Analysis: Raphael Diaz didn't skate on a regular pairing during the Flames' morning skate, so Corey Potter will remain in the lineup Tuesday at his expense. It's unclear whether Diaz will be ready to go for either of the team's two remaining games during the regular season.

Flames' Diaz Out Saturday

News: Raphael Diaz (undisclosed) will not play Saturday against the Oilers, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Analysis: Raphael Diaz will be replaced by Corey Potter after he suffered the injury during Thursday's loss to the Blues. The Flames are listing Diaz as day-to-day.

Flames' Diaz Suffers Undisclosed Injury

News: Raphael Diaz is in danger of missing Saturday's game against the Oilers, after suffering an undisclosed injury during Thursday's loss to the Blues, Pat Steinberg of 960 The FAN reports.
Analysis: The Flames recalled Tyler Wotherspoon from AHL Adirondack, hinting that Raphael Diaz will likely miss at least one game. Calgary does have Sunday and Monday off, before returning to action against the Coyotes on Tuesday.

Flames' Diaz Pots Goal In Win

News: Raphael Diaz potted a goal in Monday's win over the Stars.
Analysis: Raphael Diaz has held down a regular role on the Flames' blue line during the second half with Ladislav Smid (neck) out for the season, but it hasn't resulted in an uptick in production. The 29-year-old has only two goals and two assists across 55 games.

Flames' Diaz Picks Up Second Point

News: Raphael Diaz was credited with an assist in Tuesday's win over the Sabres.
Analysis: It's just the second point in 26 games for Raphael Diaz, who has been a healthy scratch for roughly half of the Flames' games this season. A return to the press box likely awaits him once Ladislav Smid (undisclosed) returns from injury, and as his point totals would suggest, Diaz has little upside while he retains a lineup spot.

Raphael Diaz

Diaz Will Sign With Calgary

News: Raphael Diaz and the Flames agreed to a one-year deal Monday, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: Raphael Diaz was invited to training camp and parlayed the tryout into a deal worth a reported $700,000. The 28-year-old will likely be one of the lowest guys on the defensive totem pole, but will provide solid depth at that spot on the roster nonetheless.

Flames' PTO Diaz Turning Heads

News: Raphael Diaz has collected three assists in four appearances for the Flames during exhibition play.
Analysis: Raphael Diaz, who signed a professional tryout offer with the Flames prior to camp, has turned heads with his offensive production thus far in camp, putting himself in the conversation for a 23-man roster spot. The 28-year-old bounced between three different organizations last season, but has shown some offensive upside at times during his career. If he ends up making the roster, Diaz could be utilized as a third-pairing player.

Wings Extend Diaz Training Camp Tryout

News: The Red Wings have extended Raphael Diaz a training camp tryout, but the defenseman has not decided if he will accept it, reports MLive.com.
Analysis: Raphael Diaz played 63 games for three teams last season -- the Habs (46), Canucks (six) and Rangers (11) -- but was also a healthy scratch for 21 games. The Wings are eyeing him because he's a right shot on the back end, but his handlers have told the Wings the defender still has some options on the table and is still weighing what he wants to do.

Rangers' Diaz Likely Out For Game 2

News: Raphael Diaz will likely sit out Saturday's Game 2 against the Kings, the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: With John Moore returning from his two-game suspension, Raphael Diaz is expected to watch Game 2 from the press box. Diaz has suited up for four games in the playoffs, but failed to record a point over that span.

Rangers' Diaz Active In Postseason Debut

News: Raphael Diaz dressed for the first time this postseason in Monday's loss to Pittsburgh, skating 19:30 and taking a game-high six shots on goal.
Analysis: Raphael Diaz factored prominently into the Rangers' power play and certainly generated some offense, but it wasn't enough, as Marc-Andre Fleury spun his second consecutive shutout. John Moore sat for Diaz, and considering the improved power play the Rangers had in this one, it seems likely that Diaz will be in there for Game 4.

Raphael Diaz

Rangers' Diaz Lights The Lamp Friday

News: Raphael Diaz scored just his second goal of the season during the Rangers 4-3 loss to the Flames on Friday.
Analysis: The seemingly well-traveled defenseman is on his third team of the season and after four games and a load of healthy scratches, he registered his first point for his new team. With minimal scoring, a low hit total and even lower penalty minutes, he's never been one to consider for fantasy purposes. With the season winding down, there's no reason to think otherwise.

Canucks Deal Diaz To Rangers After Buzzer

News: Raphael Diaz was traded to the Rangers on Tuesday for a 2015 fifth-round draft pick, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.
Analysis: With the Canucks seemingly in sell mode following the injury to Daniel Sedin, Raphael Diaz will find a new destination for the second time before the deadline. The 28-year-old has 13 points in 52 games with the Habs and Canucks this season and could see time on the Rangers' second or third defensive pairing.

Diaz Scores In Vancouver Debut

News: In his first game action wearing a Canucks sweater, Raphael Diaz fired four shots on goal and found twine with one of them in Tuesday's loss to Boston.
Analysis: Unfortunately, Raphael Diaz accounted for all the Vancouver offense in this one, scoring his first goal in nearly a year -- the last one had come Feb. 19, 2013. That's a 53-game streak without a goal. He surely looked energized in this one, though, as the four shots matched his career high.

Diaz To Join Canucks In Boston

News: Raphael Diaz, who was acquired from Montreal on Monday, will join the Canucks for Tuesday's game in Boston, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: Raphael Diaz should find time immediately due a few injuries along Vancouver's blue line. He's not a physical defender, but Diaz makes the smart pass and clears the zone well.

2/3/2014

Raphael Diaz, D, NYR

Raphael Diaz

Habs Deal Diaz To Canucks

News: Raphael Diaz was traded to the Canucks on Monday in exchange for forward Dale Weise.
Analysis: Vancouver was already in the market for a defenseman after Kevin Bieksa and Chris Tanev were both sidelined with long-term ailment, and the injury to Yannick Weber in Friday's game may have prompted the team to act even quicker in acquiring Raphael Diaz. The blueliner had been gathering dust as a healthy scratch for the Canadiens the last handful of games, but he should be able to carve out a role for the depth-starved Canucks.

Raphael Diaz

Habs' Diaz Will Be Scratched Wednesday

News: Raphael Diaz will be a healthy scratch Wednesday against the Penguins, Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: Raphael Diaz's defensive partner Alexei Emelin will also be a scratch, so it appears that Douglas Murray and Francis Bouillon will both dress to replace them. Diaz has 11 assists through 46 games this season, and isn't expected to be a regular healthy scratch.

Habs' Diaz Returns To Practice

News: Raphael Diaz (illness) returned to practice Monday, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: Raphael Diaz missed Saturday's game with the illness, but he should be ready to go Wednesday against the Penguins if coach Michel Therrien chooses to use him in the lineup. The defenseman has no goals and 11 assists in 46 games this season.

Habs' Diaz Likely Out Saturday

News: Raphael Diaz (illness) appears unlikely to play Saturday vs. the Maple Leafs, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Raphael Diaz was not on the ice for Saturday's morning skate and looks like he'll be forced out of action for the night. Nathan Beaulieu was recalled from AHL Hamilton on Friday and will fill Diaz's spot in the lineup.
