Jets Ink Aebischer For AHL Duty

News: David Aebischer has signed a deal to play with the Jets' AHL affiliate, James Mirtle of the Globe & Mail reports.
Analysis: Unless Ondrej Pavelec and Chris Mason both go down with injuries, it's likely that David Aebischer will spend his 2011-12 season touring the AHL cities of North America.

Aebischer Inks Try-Out Contract With Jets

News: David Aebischer will be at the Jets' camp in September on a try-out contract, reports the Winnipeg Free Press.
Analysis: He is on loan from his club team (Lugano) in the Swiss league and he hasn't seen NHL action since 2007. It's unlikely he'll unseat either Ondrej Pavelec or Chris Mason with the big club or even find himself with the team's AHL affiliate. Maybe its one last kick at the can; maybe it's a favor to the guy. But his NHL days are long, LONG gone.

Aebischer goes abroad

News: David Aebischer, who was waived by the Coyotes earlier this season, was expected to play in Europe, according to the Arizona Republic last month.
Analysis: Aebischer is a safe cut in all Fantasy leagues.

Aebischer waived by the Coyotes

News: The Arizona Republic reports David Aebischer has been waived by the Phoenix Coyotes on Wednesday. He shockingly lost his job in quick fashion to the combination of Alex Auld and Mikael Tellqvist.
Analysis: It appeared as if Abby would secure the No. 1 job in Phoenix without any trouble, but he couldn't even hang around as the backup. If he passes through waivers, he'll either stick with the Coyotes or end up with their AHL affiliate in San Antonio. The Los Angeles Kings might be a potential destination, but we doubt they'd bite at this time.

David Aebischer

Aebischer cannot get it done

News: David Aebischer allowed three goals on 33 shots in Wednesday's game at Columbus, taking his first career loss against the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: Aebischer, who dominated the Blue Jackets while he was with Colorado, came in with a 7-0-0 career mark, three shutouts and a 0.85 goals-against average against Columbus. He wasn't terrible on Wednesday, but Pascal Leclaire was sensational. With a three-goaltender rotation in Phoenix, it might be a couple more games before Abby plays again.

Aebischer to start Wednesday

News: David Aebischer will make his first start of the season on Wednesday night against the Blue Jackets in Columbus. "Alex (Auld) is deserving to play...but I think we're going to draw from Aebischer's little bit more experience," coach Wayne Gretzky said. "All three worked pretty hard. It's not a question of who's been better than the other guy."
Analysis: Set your daily Fantasy lineups accordingly. Aebischer, Alex Auld and Mikael Tellqvist are splitting time in the crease for the Coyotes right now, but general manager Don Maloney said that is not going to last. "This is not something that's going to go on all year," he said. "It may be a few more weeks before it sorts itself out. We've only played a couple of games. I think we're going to get in a few more games and see who emerges and then make a decision on who we want to keep." The Coyotes might try and trade one at such point.

David Aebischer

Aebischer healthy, OUT Thursday

News: Coach Wayne Gretzky told the Arizona Republic that Mikael Tellqvist will be his starting goaltender for Thursday's regular season opener against the St. Louis Blues. He also announced that Alex Auld will serve as the backup with David Aebischer a healthy scratch.
Analysis: We'll likely see a goaltending carousel in Phoenix, at least through the early part of the season. This is terrible news for Fantasy owners of Aebischer, as he was expected to be the No. 1 among the three. Aebischer's Fantasy value might sink over the next week or two, but wait to see how Tellqvist does before cutting bait. Abby can still be a useful No. 3 Fantasy option, especially in leagues which average points per game in a scoring period.

David Aebischer

Abby appears to have a leg up

News: David Aebischer appears to have a leg up in the three-way race for the starting job in Phoenix over Alex Auld and Mikael Tellqvist. "He's still relatively young and everybody who's played the game has gone through a tough time in their careers," head coach Wayne Gretzky told usatoday.com. "Looking at his track record, he seemed to be a guy who worked hard and he had success in the past. Montreal is a hard place to play for a goalie. So here's a new opportunity."
Analysis: It is hard to understand exactly why if you look at the preseason statistics, as Aebischer is 1-0-0, but with a 3.60 GAA and .870 save percentage. Auld is 0-1-1 with a 1.94 GAA and .927 save percentage and Tellqvist is 1-0-0 with a 2.76 GAA and .905 save percentage. If you add Abby to a Fantasy roster, be sure to have plenty of depth, because the job in Phoenix is anything but set in stone with plenty of contenders looking for time.

Aebischer starts preseason opener

News: David Aebischer allowed just one goal in 18 shots in Sunday's shootout win against the Ducks in the preseason opener for the Coyotes. He was replaced by Josh Tordjman midway through the second period and he stopped all 10 shots he faced.
Analysis: Aebischer is looking to re-gain the form which made him a dominant starter with the Colorado Avalanche before he was traded to the Montreal Canadiens. Abby is battling Mikael Tellqvist, who stopped nine of 10 shots he faced in Monday's preseason game against the Avalanche. Look for the battle to continue without a definitive starter emerging for at least two more weeks.

David Aebischer

Aebischer gets some company

News: The Phoenix Coyotes signed goalie Alex Auld to a one-year contract on Monday. Auld, 26, went 7-13-5 with a 3.34 goals-against average last season with Florida. He is 46-44-13 in five NHL seasons with Florida and Vancouver, with a 2.89 GAA and .902 save percentage. Auld joins recently added free agent David Aebischer and Mikael Tellqvist in a suddenly crowded crease in Phoenix.
Analysis: See how this battle pans out before using anything more than a late-round pick on any of the Phoenix goaltenders. They might also elect to trade Tellqvist to a team in need of goaltending help to fill one of their other needs.

David Aebischer

Aebischer heads back out west

News: The Phoenix Coyotes have signed goalie David Aebischer to a one-year contract. Aebischer, entering his seventh NHL season, has a 106-73-12 record with a 2.51 goals against average in 213 career games with Colorado and Montreal. In the 2003-04 season with Colorado, he went 32-19-9 with a 2.09 GAA.
Analysis: The 29-year-old Swiss goalie was 13-12-3 with a 3.17 GAA in 32 appearances for Montreal last season. He was acquired by the Canadiens in a trade that sent Jose Theodore to Colorado a year ago. New Coyotes general manager Don Maloney said the signing is a move toward depth at goalie. The only other goalie under contract with the Coyotes is Mikael Tellqvist. Abby might have a shot at the No. 1 job, but he'll have to win the job in preseason.

David Aebischer

Aebischer a backup yet again

News: Canadiens G Cristobal Huet was supposed to dress for Tuesday's game against Boston and back up Jaroslav Halak, but team officials said the necessary paperwork to remove him from the injury reserve list wasn't filed to the league in time.
Analysis: David Aebischer backed up Halak for the eighth straight game. Regardless of whether Abby or Huet dress, no one is going to touch Halak right now, especially at Bell Centre. He is 7-0 in his seven starts at home, so the other two goaltenders have minimal Fantasy appeal right now and are unlikely to play at all.

David Aebischer

Aebischer, Leighton to sit Tues.

News: After a solid performance on Saturday against Toronto, the Montreal Gazette is reporting Jaroslav Halak will get another start on Tuesday against Boston.
Analysis: Set your daily Fantasy lineups accordingly. It looks like coach Guy Carbonneau will go with the hot hand in Toronto right now and that is not Aebischer or Leighton for the time being.

3/16/2007

David Aebischer, G, WPG Aebischer allows six goals

David Aebischer

Aebischer allows six goals

News: Canadiens G David Aebischer stopped 25 shots in a 6-1 loss to the Penguins Friday. The loss snaps a two-game winning streak for Aebischer.
Analysis: Aebischer appears to be the top option in Montreal once again, as the coaching staff has cooled considerably on Jaroslav Halak. But is still nothing more than a low-end goalie at this time.

David Aebischer

Aebischer wins vs. Islanders

News: David Aebischer finished with 24 saves in Tuesday's game against the Islanders, as Montreal won its second in a row as it returned from a five-game road trip.
Analysis: Aebischer appears to be the top option in Montreal once again, as the coaching staff has cooled considerably on Jaroslav Halak.

David Aebischer

Aebischer turns away Blues

News: Canadiens G David Aebischer stopped 25 shots in a 4-3 win over the Blues Saturday. It was his second win in his last four appearances.
Analysis: Aebischer has been sharing time in net with Jaroslav Halak and they will likely continue to do so until one of them wins the full-time job. In the meantime, Aebischer remains a low-end Fantasy goalie.

3/9/2007

David Aebischer

Aebischer relieves shaky Halak

News: Jaroslav Halak allowed five goals on 15 shots in Thursday's game at Atlanta before getting pulled midway through the second period. David Aebischer allowed a goal on 14 shots to finish up.
Analysis: Halak will likely be back to the bench for Saturday's game at St. Louis with Aebischer drawing a start in the favorable matchup. Set your daily Fantasy lineups accordingly.

3/3/2007

David Aebischer, G, WPG Aebischer gives up seven goals

David Aebischer

Aebischer gives up seven goals

News: Canadiens G David Aebischer allowed seven goals on 29 shots in an embarassing loss to the Sabres Friday. He has now lost four times in his last six starts.
Analysis: Aebischer had a golden opportunity to gain a ton of playing time with Cristobal Huet out for the remainder of the season with a hamstring injury. But he has been surpassed by a rookie goalie and giving up seven goals won't help his cause. Aebischer remains a low-end Fantasy goalie at this time.

2/26/2007

David Aebischer, G, WPG

David Aebischer

Aebischer hangs on for win

News: David Aebischer made 32 saves while allowing four goals in Monday's 5-4 win over the Maple Leafs. Toronto was down 5-2, but Aebischer allowed two quick goals to start the third period before hanging on for the victory.
Analysis: Abby's shaky performance likely means coach Guy Carbonneau will turn back to Jaroslav Halak for Tuesday's start at N.Y. Rangers. It is not a certaintly, but consider reserving Aebischer in all daily leagues just as a precaution.

2/21/2007

David Aebischer, G, WPG Aebischer to look on again

David Aebischer

Aebischer to look on again

News: The Montreal Gazette reports Jaroslav Halak will start his third consecutive game on Thursday at Nashville instead of David Aebischer.
Analysis: Coach Guy Carbonneau is going with the hot hand, as Halak has won his first two NHL starts. Fantasy owners of Aebischer might start getting mighty nervous if he is able to upend the Predators.

2/20/2007

David Aebischer, G, WPG

David Aebischer

Aebischer to look on Tuesday

News: According to published reports, Jaroslav Halak will get his second consecutive start on Tuesday night against Washington. He and David Aebischer are the goaltenders in Montreal for now with Cristobal Huet (hamstring surgery) out for the season.
Analysis: Set your daily Fantasy lineups accordingly. Halak looked mighty impressive at Columbus on Sunday in a win in his NHL debut and is being rewarded by coach Guy Carbonneau, who is hoping to catch lightning in a bottle a la past rookie Habs netminders Ken Dryden, Patrick Roy, etc. Aebischer will get his share of starts down the stretch, too, so if you own him, don't panic, but hope Halak stumbles on Tuesday.

David Aebischer

Aebischer takes loss Saturday

News: Canadiens G David Aebischer made 27 saves in a 5-3 loss to the Hurricanes Saturday. It was announced during the game that Canadiens All-Star goalie Cristobal Huet will have surgery on his injury hamstring Sunday.
Analysis: Aebischer now becomes the team's starting goalie with Huet sidelined indefinitely. He could be a useful stopgap Fantasy option if he can regain some of the magic he had while in Colorado.

2/15/2007

David Aebischer, G, WPG

David Aebischer

Aebischer steps in for Huet

News: Canadiens goalie Cristobal Huet had to leave with 6:49 left in the second period with an injured left hamstring after falling awkwardly in his net on Brian Rafalski's second goal. David Aebischer took over in goal.
Analysis: Huet had lost four games before this outing and he allowed three goals Wednesday. Keep him reserved for now and take a look to see if Aebischer is available.

2/15/2007

David Aebischer, G, WPG

David Aebischer

Aebischer to start Saturday

News: Canadiens G Cristobal Huet suffered a pulled hamstring Wednesday when he stretched in an unsuccessful attempt to stop Brian Rafalski's second goal. The Canadiens are expected to call up Jaroslav Halak from Hamilton of the American Hockey League to replace Huet. The team has not given a timetable for his return, but they have already said that backup David Aebischer will be in net Saturday against the Hurricanes. Aebischer played well in relief of Huet Wednesday, stopping 19 of 21 shots.
Analysis: Hamstring injuries can be tricky, so it is likely that either Aebischer or Halak will start Sunday against the Blue Jackets as well. This could be a great time for Aebischer to shine in net. Huet has been struggling, and if Aebischer plays well, he could snag the starter's job back from Huet. For now, use him as a stopgap Fantasy option with Huet out.

2/14/2007

David Aebischer

Aebischer winless vs. Devils

News: David Aebischer will likely be in goal versus the Devils on Wednesday in New Jersey, despite going 0-1-1 with a tie and a 2.28 GAA in five career appearances against them.
Analysis: He has played a majority of the games for coach Guy Carbonneau's Canadiens since the All-Star break in place of a stumbling Cristobal Huet. Set your daily Fantasy lineups accordingly.
