Panthers' Samsonov To Hit Open Market Friday

News: Samsonov will become an unrestricted free agent Friday, along with Tomas Vokoun, Marty Reasoner, Darcy Hordichuk, Joe Callahan, Ryan Carter, and Alexander Sulzer.
Analysis: Samsonov tallied three goals and 11 assists in 20 games with the Panthers and 10 goals and 16 assists in 58 games in Carolina last season. The winger provided a much-needed offensive burst down the stretch; if he remains in South Florida, he could be a potential fantasy option to stash on your bench.

Florida Suiting Samsonov Just Fine

News: Samsonov's assist Saturday gives him 12 points in 17 games since he joined the Panthers.
Analysis: He seems to be rejuvenated in Florida -- his pace, if stretched across a full season, would near 60 points. He could provide sneaky fantasy value next season; file away his name and monitor him come training camp.

Samsonov Ripping It Up For Panthers

News: Samsonov notched his third-straight, two-point game when he picked up two helpers Saturday.
Analysis: He has nine points in 10 games with the Panthers and could provide you with a late-season burst from the left side. Check your wire.

Panthers' Samsonov Has Two Assists In Loss Tuesday

News: Samsonov had two assists in Tuesday's loss to the Flyers.
Analysis: Samsonov now has five points in his first eight games with Florida. He's getting a lot of ice time (20:26 Tuesday) for a Panthers team that is just playing out the string.

Samsonov: First Points As Panther

News: Samsonov's goal and assist Saturday were his first points in a Panthers' uniform.
Analysis: The points came in his third game in Florida. The Panthers are beyond scuffling at this point -- they've dropped four straight and are winless in 17 of their last 22. It's hard to recommend him right now.

Samsonov Taking His Talent To South Beach

News: Samsonov has been traded by Carolina to Florida for Bryan Allen, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Dealing Allen allows Florida to save $2.9 million next season as Samsonov's contract expires after this season while Allen is signed through 2011-12.

Samsonov Ends Drought In Canes' Loss

News: Samsonov snapped a 9-game goal drought Wednesday in the loss to New Jersey.
Analysis: Samsonov's been more an enigma this season than usual, which is noteworthy. He's essentially non-existent for the Canes', as he had just four assists over that nine-game span. He's hardly been consistent enough to be a boon to fantasy squads.

Two Assists For Hurricanes' Samsonov

News: Samsonov tallied two assists Sunday against the Thrashers.
Analysis: Samsonov only has nine goals and 25 points in 52 games this season, and it's not like he's been on a tear recently. Unless you are in a really deep league, he shouldn't be on your team.

Canes' Samsonov Lining Up With Eric Staal Saturday

News: Samsonov will start alongside captain Eric Staal for Carolina's game against Atlanta on Saturday, the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: The question is will he stay there the whole game? Samsonov has 29 points (11 G, 18 A) in 37 career games facing the Thrashers, but hasn't cracked the score sheet in two games against them this season.

Samsonov Tickles Twine In Loss

News: Samsonov scored Saturday but it was too little too late as the Penguins edged the 'Canes, 3-2.
Analysis: The goal increases Samsonov's running total to 21 points (9 G, 12 A) on the season.

Samsonov Snipes Twice For Canes

News: Samsonov scored twice on the power play in Saturday's win over the Devils.
Analysis: He's only a sporadic producer for the Canes so this outburst doesn't necessarily make him fantasy worthy. But keep an eye on him -- he does have some serious offensive talent if he can only put things together.

Hurricanes' Samsonov Ends Goalless Drought

News: Samsonov potted his first goal in 10 games when he tickled the twine for a power-play tally in Monday's loss to Tampa Bay.
Analysis: It was the Hurricanes' lone marker on Monday night, but getting Samsonov warmed up would be a nice boost to the Carolina offense. He generally runs streaky, so this could be the start of an outburst during the final two weeks of December.

Canes' Samsonov Succeeds In Shootout

News: Samsonov beat Chris Mason, an Atlanta netminder, in the shootout frame of Thursday's 3-2 win.
Analysis: Samsonov's fantasy owners undoubtedly would have preferred he score in regulation, but now the veteran has a confidence booster to build upon for his next game, which happens to be a home game Saturday against the Ducks.

Canes' Samsonov Dishes Twice For Scores

News: Samsonov generated a pair of assists in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Panthers.
Analysis: This was Samsonov's third multi-point game of the season, but he's also been held pointless in 16 contests, causing him to be a fantasy option only in the deepest of leagues.

Canes' Samsonov Slips to Fourth Line in Loss

News: Samsonov was bumped down from the first to the fourth line after a rough first period of Saturday's eventual 5-2 loss to the Predators, the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Still, at plus-1, he was the only Carolina skater to have a positive rating in the game. If you happen to own Samsonov, start hoping that the demotion was just a temporary fix by coach Paul Maurice. Obviously his best chances for fantasy success occur on the left side of team captain Eric Staal.

Carolina's Samsonov Triggers Lamp in Loss

News: Samsonov sank his fifth goal of the season during Wednesday's eventual 3-2 loss to the Capitals.
Analysis: Samsonov is having a nice season but he's done little to rid himself of the label of being an inconsistent player. As frustrating as that can be, it often pays to roll with Samsonov when he's on a hot streak.

Samsonov Catching Fire for Hurricanes

News: Samsonov extended his point streak to four games by potting a goal in Carolina's 7-1 rout over the Oilers on Tuesday.
Analysis: Samsonov, who started the season with neck problems, is healthy and producing at a high level. One area of his game that really sticks out is his shot accuracy; the Russian has deposited 20 percent of his shot attempts for scores.

11/3/2010

Canes' Samsonov Sets Up Three Goals

News: Samsonov blew up for three assists Wednesday as the Hurricanes defeated the Islanders by a score of 7-2.
Analysis: Samsonov, who was bothered by a neck injury to start the season, came into the contest without any assists in seven games. However, thanks to this performance, his point totals in the early season suddenly looks much better. Now, the streaky producer is up to five points (2G, 3A) in eight games.

Samsonov To Play Saturday for Canes

News: Samsonov (neck) will be in the lineup for Saturday's game, reports Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer.
Analysis: Samsonov has essentially been day-to-day since first returning from his neck injury, appearing in only two of four games since October 14. He scored a goal in his first game back, but doesn't seem 100 percent yet.

Hurricanes' Samsonov A Gametime Decision Saturday

News: Samsonov, who is being eased back into playing time since returning from a neck injury, will be a gametime decision for Saturday's game against the Coyotes, reports Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer.
Analysis: Samsonov returned from injury on October 14 and scored a power-play goal, but since then has been held out of two of the Hurricanes' three games.

Canes' Samsonov Lights Lamp in Return From Neck Injury

News: Samsonov scored on the power play in his season debut Thursday, but it came in a losing effort as the Hurricanes fell to the Senators by a score of 3-2.
Analysis: Samsonov made the best of limited minutes, appearing in 10:40 of ice time, including a little more than three minutes on the man advantage. Despite the team's loss, this was a big game for Samsonov as he had missed out on Carolina's first two contests with a neck injury that he sustained during preseason.

Canes Activate Samsonov

News: The Hurricanes activated Samsonov (neck) from injured reserve Thursday, the team's official site reports. He is eligible to play in Thursday night's game against the Senators.
Analysis: We're still advocating a wait-and-see approach with Samsonov since it remains unclear how much ice time he'll get in his first game back from a sprained neck. Even when healthy, Samsonov's fantasy appeal is limited by the fact that he's unlikely to see much time on the Canes' scoring lines.

Canes' Samsonov (Neck) Game-Time Call For Thursday

News: Samsonov (neck) is considered to be a "game-day decision" for Thursday's tilt against Ottawa, the Hurricanes' official site reports.
Analysis: According to the report, Samsonov participated in a full-contact practice Tuesday. With his 32nd birthday falling on October 27, he is the oldest of the 'Canes forwards.

Canes' Samsonov (Neck) Could Play Thursday Against Ottawa

News: Samsonov (neck) practiced Sunday with a non-contact jersey and has a chance to play Thursday against Ottawa, the Hurricanes' official site reports.
Analysis: The Russian was placed on injured reserve in late September, missing both of the team's winning efforts against the Wild in Europe. It would be wise to take a wait-and-see approach in regards to Samsonov's status before taking on his services in fantasy pools.

Canes Place Samsonov on Injured Reserve

News: The Hurricanes placed Samsonov on injured reserve Thursday, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Samsonov will not travel with the team to Europe, meaning he'll miss Carolina's first two games against Minnesota. He'll be reevaluated when the Hurricanes return home.
