Ex-Jacket Prospal Announces Retirement

News: Vinny Prospal announced his retirement Friday after 16 seasons in the NHL, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Vinny Prospal, 38, was on the cusp of signing a minor league contract with the Canucks, but ended up changing his mind, deciding to hang up his skates for good. He retires with 255 goals and 510 assists across 1,108 games with the Flyers, Senators, Panthers, Lightning, Ducks, Rangers and Blue Jackets.

Prospal To Try Out With Canucks

News: Vinny Prospal will sign a tryout contract with the Canucks, the Globe and Mail reports.
Analysis: Vinny Prospal, a veteran of 1,108 regular season NHL games, will spend some time with the Canucks' minor-league squad to see if he is capable of helping the big club. It wouldn't exactly be a reach, as he played all 48 games for the Blue Jackets last season, finishing with 12 goals, 18 assists, and a plus-three rating. Such production is highly unlikely this season, as Prospal will likely skate on the Canucks' fourth line, if he ever makes it to the team.

Prospal Waiting To Hear From Blue Jackets

News: Vinny Prospal, an unrestricted free agent, would like to return to the Blue Jackets next season, the Columbus Dispatch reports. "I want the public and the fans to know I'm not shutting the door on anything," Prospal told The Dispatch on Thursday. "I want to come back. I want to be part of this team, especially after the way we played after the start. We've really turned a corner and I can see where this is going. It's going to be good here."
Analysis: The veteran ended up as the Jackets' leading scorer last year, with 12 goals and 30 points in 48 games, but the club has three first-round picks and a ton of cap room and doesn't want to bring Vinny Prospal back until it sees where he fits in the roster. Columbus is still the most likely landing spot for the UFA, but at 38 years old he would be purely a short-term solution at forward.

Blue Jackets' Prospal Notches Goal, Assist

News: Vinny Prospal scored a goal and added an assist versus the Sharks on Sunday.
Analysis: Vinny Prospal has 29 points in 46 games and has five points in his last five contests.

Jackets' Prospal: Three-Game Streak

News: Vinny Prospal scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 3-2 shootout win over Minnesota. He now has a three-game point streak (one goal, three assists).
Analysis: He continues to lead the Jackets in points with 26 in 42 games. He's a decent activation right now, but don't expect miracles. The Jackets have been better lately, but they don't score much. And that limits his overall value.

Prospal Sparks Columbus Win

News: Vinny Prospal grabbed a goal and an assist in Friday's 6-4 win over Calgary, giving him 20 points on the season.
Analysis: Vinny Prospal had been quiet the last few games but gave Columbus a boost on Friday. His 20 points through 33 games rate out roughly to a point-per-game rate that would put him around 50-plus points for the season. He's a cagey veteran that can still make some things happen on occasion.

Jackets' Prospal Assists On Three

News: Vinny Prospal notched three assists in Tuesday's win over the Predators.
Analysis: He'd picked up just one point, an assist, in his last six games, so this was a nice recovery for Vinny Prospal. At 38, he's still getting it done in deeper fantasy formats.

Jackets' Prospal Tallies Two Points

News: Vinny Prospal scored a power-play goal and assisted on Jack Johnson's even-strength marker in Tuesday's shootout win over Edmonton.
Analysis: That's three games in a row with a goal and four with a point for the 38-year-old. With a surprising nine goals on the year, Vinny Prospal easily leads the Jackets in that category.

Jackets' Prospal Scores In Second Straight Game

News: Vinny Prospal notched his team-leading eighth goal of the season in Sunday's 2-1 OT win over the Avalanche.
Analysis: He's only got 12 points in 22 games, but with a three-game point streak and seven points (five goals and two assists) in his last 10 games he's as close to hot as any Blue Jacket forward has gotten this season.

Jackets' Prospal Scores Game-Winner

News: Vinny Prospal's third-period goal proved to be the game-winner as the Blue Jackets topped the Stars 2-1 on Monday.
Analysis: He's off to a bit of a rough start this season, with two goals and an assist, a minus-5 rating and 13 shots on net through six games. The one bit of good news for Vinny Prospal is that he continues to ride shotgun for promising young Ryan Johansen, and if Johansen's offensive development takes a leap forward, Prospal would stand to benefit. Lacking that, he's a relatively low-end fantasy option.

Jackets' Prospal On Third Line To Open Camp

News: Vinny Prospal skated on a line with Mark Letestu and Nick Foligno on the first day of training camp, Rob Mixer of BlueJackets.com reports.
Analysis: It's hard to say what even constitutes a top-six line for the talent-thin Jackets, but this doesn't exactly seem like a plum assignment for the veteran Vinny Prospal. He could be hard-pressed to match last season's output.

Jackets' Prospal Signs With Czech League Team

News: Vinny Prospal came to terms with HC Mountfield of the Czech Extraliga on Sunday, FOX Sports Ohio reports.
Analysis: Vinny Prospal signed a one-year extension with the Blue Jackets in February after appearing in all 82 games last season, finishing with 39 assists and 16 goals. He previously played with HC Mountfield during the NHL's last lockout in 2004.

Prospal Has Three Points For Columbus

News: Vinny Prospal had a goal and two assists in the Blue Jackets' 7-3 season-ending win over the Islanders on Saturday.
Analysis: Vinny Prospal ends the season with 16 goals and 55 points, numbers very similar to his last full season in the NHL, 2009-10. He will never to be a top offensive player, but can be a useful second or third line forward.

Two-Point Night For Jackets' Prospal

News: Vinny Prospal scored a goal and added an assist in Friday's 5-1 romp over the Hurricanes. He and Mark Letestu were joined on their line by Rick Nash.
Analysis: Although Nash himself didn't hit the scoresheet, the unit produced two goals. If that line sticks together down the stretch, Vinny Prospal could put up some decent numbers.

Two-Point Night Thursday For Jackets' Prospal

News: Vinny Prospal assisted on both of Mark Letestu's goals in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Kings.
Analysis: The Blue Jackets' second line of Vinny Prospal, Letestu and rookie Cam Atkinson had been getting their chances recently, and Prospal now has nine points (one goal, eight assists) in his last eight games.

Two Point Night For Jackets' Prospal

News: Vinny Prospal assisted on both Blue Jackets goals Thursday in a 2-0 win over the Avalanche.
Analysis: His production sagged in the middle portion of the season, but Vinny Prospal has sprung back to life with six points (one goal, five assists) in his last five games.

Jackets' Prospal Snaps Small Drought

News: Vinny Prospal notched three assists in Tuesday's win over San Jose.
Analysis: Vinny Prospal had been quiet the last two weeks, but broke out Tuesday. Odds are that his points will come in bunches. He's of use in leagues that roll many forwards.

Blue Jackets' Prospal Signs Contract Extension

News: The Blue Jackets have signed Vinny Prospal to a one-year contract extension, the Blue Jackets' official site reports.
Analysis: In his first season with the Blue Jackets, the 36-year-old has 33 points and a minus-13 rating in 53 games played. Still, it's been enough for the franchise to commit to the veteran for another year despite a very disappointing campaign overall following a blockbuster trade for Jeff Carter and a big splash in free agency (James Wisniewski).

Jackets' Prospal Slumping

News: Vaclav Prospal was held off the scoresheet Tuesday night for the eighth consecutive game.
Analysis: Vaclav Prospal's lack of production isn't for a lack of ice time or even power play time, which makes his slump all the more galling.

Vinny Prospal

Jackets' Prospal Has Two-Point Night

News: Vaclav Prospal scored a goal and added an assist in Sunday's 7-4 loss to the Ducks.
Analysis: With Jeff Carter joining Kristian Huselius on the Jackets' injured list, look for Vaclav Prospal to see plenty of shifts alongside Rick Nash in the short term and break out of the slump he's been in.

Prospal Slumping For Blue Jackets

News: Vaclav Prospal, who's been the Blue Jackets' leading scorer this season, has just two assists in his last eight games.
Analysis: His eight goals and 28 points still top the team, but he's been squeezed off the Rick Nash/Jeff Carter line recently by rookie Ryan Johansen and might see his production continue to slide if he isn't seeing regular shifts with the Jackets' two big guns.

Two Assists For Jackets' Prospal In Big Night Saturday

News: Vaclav Prospal, playing in his 1000th career NHL game Saturday, assisted on both Blue Jacket goals in a 3-2 loss to the Lightning.
Analysis: He leads the struggling club with 26 points in 32 games, and has been one of the few Blue Jackets this season to give a consistent effort every night. Congratulations to Vaclav Prospal on the milestone, and for being the kind of player every youngster should look to as a role model on the ice.

Prospal Active In Jackets' Loss

News: Vaclav Prospal posted an assist in Wednesday's shootout loss to the Devils, giving him five points in the last three games.
Analysis: Vaclav Prospal has been quietly productive on one of the league's worst teams, as the crafty veteran has 19 points in 21 games. The Blue Jackets have been playing strong hockey the last week and Prospal is putting his mark on the team's attack. Expect a few streaks from Prospal as the season wears on.

Three Assists For Jackets' Prospal

News: Vaclav Prospal assisted on three Blue Jackets goals Monday in a win over Calgary.
Analysis: Vaclav Prospal has been a bright spot in a dismal season for Columbus, as he has six goals and 18 points this season. With Jeff Carter back healthy, Prospal's numbers should remain steady going forward.

Prospal Tallies In Columbus's Loss

News: Vaclav Prospal scored one of Columbus's two goals in Saturday's loss to the Blackhawks. He registered five shots on goal on the night.
Analysis: He's leading the Jackets in scoring with 10 points in 10 games, but the most impressive stat thus far is probably his 34 shots on goal. If he continues to fire away at that pace, and if he can stay healthy, look for a resurgence in his goal-scoring column this season.
