Ex-NHL Forward Nedved Announces Retirement

News: Petr Nedved officially announced his retirement from hockey Friday, NHL.com reports.
Analysis: The 42-year-old has played the last seven seasons in Europe after a 15-year NHL career with the Canucks, Blues, Penguins, Rangers, Oilers, Coyotes and Flyers. He was among the most prized fantasy assets back in the day, with his 99-point campaign with the Penguins in 1995-96 amounting to his greatest NHL season.

Nedved sent packing by Rangers

News: Petr Nedved's bid to come back to the NHL after a year playing in Europe ended Friday when the New York Rangers released the 36-year-old forward from his tryout. Nedved tied for the team lead with two goals and three points in three preseason games this week, but was let go one day before the Rangers were to face New Jersey in their final exhibition contest in North America. "This is probably it for me as far as the NHL goes," Nedved said Friday. "Obviously, it gave me an indication that I can still play in this league. I'm happy about that, but I don't think I'm going to be trying next year."
Analysis: Nedved was hoping to have a third stint with the Rangers as a third- or fourth-line center in a crowded mix of younger forwards, including Lauri Korpikoski. Nedved asked to be invited to camp in an attempt to get back into the NHL following a season with Sparta Praha in the Czech Republic. Nedved's fate was likely sealed Thursday, when he played for the third time in four nights. He was on the ice for three of Tampa Bay's four goals -- including an empty-netter -- and finished minus-2. It's still safe to ignore Nedved in Fantasy.

Nedved on the comeback trail

News: Petr Nedved's long shot chances at a comeback with the New York Rangers got a bit of a boost. The 36-year-old forward, who hasn't played an NHL game since the 2006-07 season, scored a first-period goal Monday night in the Rangers' 2-1 preseason victory over the Ottawa Senators in front of a sparse crowd at Madison Square Garden. Facing an uphill battle to earn a roster spot with the Rangers, Nedved staked New York to a 1-0 lead 5:17 into the first period when he snapped a shot from the left circle past Ottawa goalie Alex Auld. Nedved, hoping to have a third stint with the Rangers despite numerous forwards ahead of him on the depth chart, asked to be invited to camp in an attempt to get back into the NHL following a season playing with Sparta Praha in his native Czech Republic. "Surely when I left I wasn't expecting to be coming back," said Nedved, the game's first star. "It is so nice to be back in the National Hockey League. It's just an exhibition game, but I was nervous before the game to the point that I didn't know what to expect."
Analysis: If Nedved doesn't make the team, he intends to return to his hometown team Liberec in the Czech League. During his two tours with the Rangers, the first for the 1994-95 season and then from 1998-2004, Nedved had 149 goals and 202 assists in 478 games. During his previous season in North America, Nedved had two goals and 10 assists in 40 NHL games with Philadelphia and Edmonton. He also spent time that year with Philadelphia of the AHL. "That's his first game so I'm not going to draw any conclusions," Rangers coach Tom Renney said. "Like a lot of others, he's involved in a process and we're smack dab in the middle of it. We'll give him credit for a good game and get ready for the next one." Even if Nedved makes the team, his best days are behind him and he will be nothing more than roster depth. Ignore him in Fantasy until further notice.

Nedved to play in Ceska Republika

News: Petr Nedved has decided to leave the NHL and play in 2007-08 with Sparta Prague of the Czech Extraliga. He managed just two goals and 10 assists in an injury-shortened year playing 40 games with Philadelphia and Edmonton.
Analysis: In 982 NHL games, Nedved posted 310 goals and 407 assists playing with seven NHL teams. He also played with Sparta in 2004-05 during the lockout, posting 22 goals and 35 points in 46 games. Erase him from your cheat sheets heading into 2007-08, if you had not already done so after his brutal 2006-07 campaign.

Nedved lost in Edmonton

News: Petr Nedved came over to the Edmonton Oilers in January from the Philadelphia Flyers and never really got on track due to knee problems.
Analysis: Nedved ended up posting just one goal and five points in 19 games with the Oilers, in and out of the lineup until finally shutting it down. It is unlikely he'll be back in Edmonton due to his high salary and low production.

Nedved returned to the IR

News: According to Edmontonoilers.com, veteran Petr Nedved (knee) has been placed back on injured reserve on Tuesday. The team recalled Kyle Brodziak from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL to take his place on the active roster.
Analysis: The team did not disclose how much time he is expected to miss, but the Oilers have just 16 games remaining and they are well out of the playoff chase. It is conceivable he might have played his last game of the season.

Oilers welcome back Nedved

News: Oilers C Petr Nedved (knee) returned to the team's lineup Thursday against the Wild. He played for 15:44 and finished with an even rating.
Analysis: It appears safe to get Nedved back into active Fantasy lineups. When healthy, he is merely a low-end Fantasy forward.

Nedved out again on Tuesday

News: Petr Nedved (knee) was unable to play again on Tuesday against the Coyotes.
Analysis: Nedved is considered day to day. Keep him reserved in all Fantasy leagues until he can officially return and prove his health in consecutive games without any effects of the injury.

Nedved remains sidelined

News: Petr Nedved (knee) was out again for Sunday's game at Minnesota. He is questionable for Tuesday's game against Phoenix back in Edmonton.
Analysis: Nedved remains day to day. If you have healthier alternatives in larger leagues for Fantasy Week 22 (Feb. 26-March 4), use them.

Nedved doesn't play Friday

News: Oilers C Petr Nedved (knee) was unable to play Friday against the Red Wings.
Analysis: When healthy, Nedved is only worth a look in the largest of Fantasy formats. Keep him reserved until he can officially return and prove his health.

C Nedved sits again Thursday

News: Petr Nedved (knee) was unable to play in Thursday's game at Columbus and it is doubtful he'll be able to play on Friday night at Detroit.
Analysis: When healthy, Nedved is only worth a look in the largest of Fantasy formats. Keep him reserved until he can officially return and prove his health.

C Nedved nursing knee sprain

News: The Edmonton Journal reports Petr Nedved has returned to Edmonton to have his knee examined. He has a sprained right knee and will be re-evaluated on Monday to determine the severity of the injury.
Analysis: Nedved has been ruled out for Saturday's game at Ottawa and it is uncertain when he will be able to return exactly. Keep him reserved in all larger Fantasy leagues until he can officially return and prove his health.

Oilers put Nedved back in lineup

News: Oilers C Petr Nedved returned to the lineup Saturday after three games as a healthy scratch. He had an assist and went 12-4 in the faceoff circle against the Avalanche.
Analysis: Nedved is no longer the goal scorer he used to be. He should only be used in the deepest of Fantasy leagues at this time.

Nedved scratched on Thursday

News: Petr Nedved, acquired from Philadelphia off waivers Jan. 2, was benched for a third straight game on Thursday at Vancouver.
Analysis: Nedved has one goal and three assists in 10 games with the Oilers. Keep him reserved in all Fantasy leagues until he can get back into the lineup.

Petr Nedved claimed by Oilers

News: Petr Nedved rejoined the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday when he was claimed off waivers from the Philadelphia Flyers. It was the third time this season the 35-year-old center was placed on waivers. Nedved played for the Oilers at the end of the 2003-04 season and left a good impression. "We liked the way he played for us last time he was here," Oilers general manager Kevin Lowe said. "We're adding some depth up the middle. He was a good fit last time and we think he can help us out again."
Analysis: Because Nedved was claimed off re-entry waivers, the Oilers are only responsible for half of his $2.35-million salary. Nedved will become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. During an NHL career that started in 1990 with Vancouver, Nedved has 309 goals and 712 points in 963 games. He played 21 games with the struggling Flyers this season and scored one goal. His minus-20 rating was second worst in the league. It is probably your best bet to see how Nedved fits into Edmonton's scheme before adding him to Fantasy rosters.

News: TSN.ca reports Nedved has been placed on waivers on Monday. It is the second time the Flyers have requested waivers on the veteran.
Analysis: Drop Nedved from all Fantasy rosters at this time, even if he ends up with another NHL club or back on the Flyers again at some point. His situation is too shaky right now.

Flu doesn't keep Nedved out

News: Flyers C Petr Nedved (flu) played on Wednesday against the Predators. He logged 10:59 of ice time and finished with a minus-1 rating.
Analysis: It appears safe to get Nedved back into your active Fantasy lineup. When healthy, he should only be owned in very large Fantasy leagues.

Nedved under the weather

News: The Philadelphia Daily News reports Petr Nedved and Geoff Sanderson are battling the flu, along with teammate Joni Pitkanen. Nedved was the only member of the trio to practice on Monday, but he left early.
Analysis: All three of the players are considered day to day. Keep Nedved reserved in all larger daily Fantasy leagues until he can officially play and prove he is well.

Nedved rejuvenated after call-up

News: C Petr Nedved has been a force since returning to the Flyers lineup after a stint in the AHL. He logged more than 21 minutes against the Ducks and was a standout at both ends of the rink.
Analysis: Nedved has six assists in his past four games since returning, earning a spot on larger Fantasy league rosters for now.

Nedved recalled on Tuesday

News: Petr Nedved was recalled from Philadelphia of the AHL on Tuesday, as Jeff Carter will be sidelined six weeks due to a broken bone in his left ankle area.
Analysis: Nedved is not a recommended Fantasy option despite the recall.

Nedved assigned to the AHL

News: Petr Nedved has cleared waivers and been assigned to the Philadelphia Phantoms of the AHL on Thursday.
Analysis: The veteran was scoreless with a minus-7 rating through six games with the Flyers. Drop him in all Fantasy leagues right now until such point he can return to the NHL and start producing again.

Flyers make big roster move

News: The Philadelphia Flyers waived defenseman Nolan Baumgartner, right winger Niko Dimitrakos and center Petr Nedved on Wednesday, a day after a 9-1 loss to the Sabres. The team called up forwards Ben Eager and Stefan Ruzicka, the Phantoms' leading scorer, and defenseman Alexandre Picard. "I thought we, well, I can't even describe what I'm thinking," general manager Bob Clarke told the Philadelphia Inquirer. "Our emotions as a team were good against the Rangers [on Oct. 7], about one-half against the Devils [on Saturday] and certainly not very good (Tuesday). This is something we have to get to the bottom of and find what the problem is. A couple of these kids had very good training camps, and now they're going to get their chance."
Analysis: In six games, Nedved has no points and has a minus-7 rating and Baumgartner has one assist. In two games, Dimitrakos has no points and is minus-2. Picard's stay might be a brief one with Lars Jonsson (ankle) and Mike Rathje (back) nearing a return. Anyway, drop Baumgartner and Dimotrakos in all Fantasy leagues, but keep an eye on Nedved. He might land with another team very shortly. As far as the trio the Flyers recalled, avoid them in all leagues for now as well.

Three PHI forwards blanked

News: Kyle Calder, Sami Kapanen and Petr Nedved were all scoreless in Tuesday's game at N.Y. Rangers. Each have gone scoreless in three games this season.
Analysis: The Philadelphia trio has done very little to warrant Fantasy consideration this season. They are only worth starting in larger leagues at this point, at least until they start playing with a little more consistency.

Nedved back in the lineup

News: Petr Nedved (groin) is back in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Penguins.
Analysis: Nedved will have only minimal Fantasy appeal in leagues which allow daily transactions at this point.

Nedved misses pair of games

News: Petr Nedved (groin) missed two more games over the weekend at Buffalo and against Toronto.
Analysis: Nedved remains day to day. Keep him reserved in all Fantasy leagues if you have healthier alternatives.
