News: The Philadelphia Flyers signed veteran goaltender Jean-Sebastien Aubin to a one-year contract Thursday. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Analysis: The 31-year-old Aubin was 5-6-1 with a 3.19 GAA in 19 regular-season games last season with the Los Angeles Kings. In 218 career NHL games over nine seasons with Pittsburgh, Toronto and Los Angeles, Aubin is 80-83-16 with a 2.93 GAA and seven shutouts. Aubin was a third-round draft pick of the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1995. He will be nothing more than roster depth for Philadelphia and can be ignored in Fantasy.
News: The Anaheim Ducks picked up G Jean-Sebastien Aubin from the Kings on Tuesday in return for a seventh-round pick.
Analysis: Aubin is currently in the AHL with the Manchester Monarchs, but you have to expect the Ducks to have him in place as Jean-Sebastien Giguere's backup by the time the playoffs roll around. Until he gets back to the NHL, however, Aubin's Fantasy value is zero, and we wouldn't suggest wasting a roster spot on him at the moment.
News: The Los Angeles Kings assigned goaltender Jean-Sebastien Aubin to the Manchester Monarchs of the American Hockey League on Friday. Aubin, 30, has played in 19 games with the Kings this season and he has a record of 5-6-1, a goals-against average of 3.19 and a save-percentage of .886.
Analysis: Aubin has not played for the Monarchs this season. He has a record of 80-83-16, a goals-against-average of 2.93 and a save-percentage of .900 in 218 career NHL games with the Kings, Toronto and Pittsburgh. Aubin might not be back up with the Kings this season baring any injuries to the gooalies.
News: The Los Angeles Daily News reports that Dan Cloutier and Jean-Sebastien have cleared waivers. That means Cloutier will come up to the Kings to back up Jason LaBarbera, and Aubin will go down to Manchester of the AHL.
Analysis: The Kings were surely hoping someone claimed Cloutier and would have to pay him his inflated salary for the rest of this season and next, but it didn't happen. The former Rangers, Lightning and Canucks goalie hasn't played in the league since December, 2006 after going 6-14 with the Kings that season before hurting his hip. Ignore him in all formats. As for Aubin, he should be released in all formats as he might not find his way back up this season.
News: The Los Angeles Daily News reports the Kings have put both Dan Cloutier and Jean-Sebastien on waivers as they try to switch backup goaltenders. If both clear, Cloutier will come up to the Kings and Aubin will go down to Manchester of the AHL.
Analysis: As much as the Kings would like it to happen, it's unlikely that anyone will claim Cloutier and have to pay him his inflated salary for the rest of this season and next. The former Rangers, Lightning and Canucks goalie hasn't played in the league since December, 2006 after going 6-14 with the Kings that season before hurting his hip. Ignore him in all formats. As for Aubin, he should be released in all formats as he might not find his way back up this season.
News: Jean-Sebastian Aubin replaced Jason LaBarbera to start the third period and the Kings pressed aggressively to get back into the game that it eventually lost 6-3 at New Jersey on Saturday. Aubin gave up one goal on three shots after LaBarbera was touched for five goals in the first two periods.
Analysis: The Kings goalie situation is shaky, as is the team for most of the time. Consider Aubin nothing more than a No. 3 Fantasy goalie at the moment.
News:Jean-Sebastien Aubin came in relief of Jason LaBarbera on Friday and the Kings lost 6-1 to Calgary. Aubin allowed the last goal on five shots in the third period. LaBarbera gave up five goals on 30 shots over the first two periods.
Analysis: The Kings goalie situation is not all that encouraging at the moment as both goalies have been pulled in recent games. Consider Aubin nothing more than a No. 3 Fantasy goalie at the moment.
News: Kings G Jean-Sebastien Aubin allowed four goals on 22 shots Tuesday after entering L.A.'s 7-0 loss to the Predators early in the first period. Starting goalie Jason LaBarbera was yanked after allowing three goals in 6:40.
Analysis: The Kings goalie situation is a complete mess at the moment, as both contenders for the top job have been pulled in two of the last three games. Consider Aubin nothing more than a No. 3 Fantasy goalie at the moment.
News: Kings G Jean-Sebastien Aubin allowed three goals on 12 shots before being yanked after 26 minutes of Los Angeles' 4-3 loss to Columbus on Thursday night.
Analysis: Aubin only has two wins in his last 12 appearances and is part of one of the league's worst teams. He had a chance to supplant Jason Labarbera while the Kings' No. 1 was injured, but didn't exactly shine in his absence and is now clearly back as the No. 2. Leave him alone in all leagues for now.
News: One game after replacing an ineffective Jason LaBarbera in the net, Kings G Jean-Sebastien Aubin started and picked up his fifth win of the season when he allowed only one goal Saturday at Colorado. He recorded 29 saves.
Analysis: Aubin might continue to start more often with LaBarbera struggles, but he'll have to put a real streak together to deserve a pickup in Fantasy. Consider him a low-end goalie at best right now.
News: Kings G Jean-Sebastien Aubin replaced the ineffective Jason LaBarbera in a 3-2 loss to the Sharks on Wednesday night. Aubin saved 21 of the 22 shots he faced.
Analysis: Aubin is only 4-6-1 this season but he figures to get some more starts over the next couple of weeks if LaBarbera continues to disappoint. Neither Kings goalie or the TG is worth starting with the team at 12-24-2.
News: G Jean-Sebastien Aubin made 22 saves on 24 shots, but he still lost a tough game to Minnesota on Saturday.
Analysis: Aubin is merely a low-end Fantasy flier for leagues that use average points per game. He's holding the starting spot for when Jason LaBarbera returns from injury. LaBarbera missed an eighth consecutive game with soreness in his ribs. He has not been placed on injured reserve, he is considered probable for Monday's game, according to the Sports XChange. The Kings TG is also a shaky option right now.
News: Kings rookie goalie Jonathan Quick got the start at Dallas Thursday in his third NHL appearance. He gave up four goals on 18 shots before he was replaced by Jean-Sebastien Aubin at 14:56 of the second period. "He was starting to think too much," Kings coach Marc Crawford said of Quick. "I had to get him out of there. But he's a young goalie." Kings No. 1 G Jason LaBarbera is with the team but is limited by a rib injury.
Analysis: Aubin made 10 saves, without letting any pucks by him in relief. Quick, meanwhile, has allowed nine goals, while making just 54 saves in three games. There is a good chance that Quick is returned to the minors as soon as Jason LaBarbera is healthy. Quick is nothing more than a No. 3 Fantasy goalie or someone to use in leagues that have average points per game while in the pros. Aubin is merely a low-end Fantasy flier for leagues that use average points per game.
News:Jean-Sebastien Aubin started in goal for the Kings Wednesday against the Blackhawks, but was replaced by Jonathan Quick late in the first period after allowing three goals on nine shots. Quick permitted three goals on 26 shots. The Kings lost 6-3.
Analysis: Aubin has lost three of his last four starts and hasn't looked too very strong in place of the injured Jason LaBarbera (rib). Aubin is merely a low-end Fantasy flier for leagues that use average points per game. The Kings TG is also a low-end Fantasy option.
News:Jean-Sebastien Aubin made 26 saves, leading the Kings to a 4-2 victory against the Northwest Division-leading Canucks on Monday night. Kopitar gave Los Angeles a 2-1 lead at 9:19 of the first period. He cruised down the slot, took a pass from Dustin Brown and beat G Curtis Sanford high to the glove side with a short backhander for his 14th goal and ninth in 15 games.
Analysis: Aubin will likely go back to his reserve role as soon as Jason LaBarbera is healthy. He is merely a low-end Fantasy flier for leagues that use average points per game. The Kings TG is also a low-end Fantasy option.
News: Kings G Jean-Sebastien Aubin made 18 saves during a 4-2 loss Saturday against the Coyotes. Aubin, who allowed three goals, was back in net after missing Thursday's game because of two sore groins. He has now lost his last two starts and hasn't won since Nov. 10 against the Stars.
Analysis: Aubin is seeing a few more starts these days because Jason LaBarbera is still nursing a ribs injury. Aubin will likely go back to his reserve role as soon as LaBarbera is healthy. He is merely a low-end Fantasy flier for leagues that use average points per game. The Kings TG is also a low-end Fantasy option.
News: Kings G Jean-Sebastien Aubin, who was unable to start Thursday against the Sabres because of two sore groin muscles, served as Jonathan Quick's backup during the rookie's NHL debut.
Analysis: Aubin has seen an increased role recently with Jason LaBarbera nursing a rib injury. Now he is on the DL with a groin injury and there is no telling when he might be ready to play again. When healthy, he is merely a low-end Fantasy flier for leagues that use average points per game.
News:Jean-Sebastien Aubin got the start for the Kings and made 20 saves in a loss against Edmonton Monday. He started in place of Jason LaBarbera, who did not dress after injuring his ribs during a goalmouth scramble in Saturday's 5-2 loss against Colorado.
Analysis: Aubin has looked pretty bad recently, but now might have to step into a bigger role with LaBarbera nursing an injury. Aubin is nothing more than a No. 3 Fantasy goalie or in leagues that use average points per game. The Kings TG is also a low-end Fantasy option.
News: Kings G Jason LaBarbera sustained a rib injury Saturday against the Avalanche during a goal-mouth scramble in the third period and was replaced by Jean-Sebastien Aubin with 14:40 remaining. LaBarbera stopped 26 of 29 shots but took the loss in a 5-2 win for the Avalanche. Aubin allowed two goals on five shots.
Analysis: Aubin has looked pretty awful in his last two appearances, but now might have to step into a bigger role with LaBarebera nursing an injury. He is nothing more than a No. 3 Fantasy goalie or flier in leagues that use average points per game heading into Fantasy Week 10 (Dec. 3-9). The Kings TG is also a low-end Fantasy option.
News:Jean-Sebastien Aubin made 26 saves against the Ducks on Thursday. Jonathan Bernier and Jason LaBarbera have been unable to lock down the No. 1 goaltending job in L.A. That has left the door open for Aubin, who made only his fourth start of the season. He stopped 26 of 31 shots as the Kings lost to the Ducks for the third time in four games. Coach Marc Crawford has been careful not to paint the picture of an open competition, but also has been giving opportunities to Aubin even when the Kings are not in back-to-back game situations. The Kings will continue their quest for reliable goaltending when they host Phoenix on Saturday afternoon.
Analysis: Aubin's Fantasy value is limited to leagues that use average points per game. The Kings TG is more of a No. 2 Fantasy option at this time.
News: Kings goalie Jason LaBarbera allowed four goals on 21 shots over the first two periods before backup Jean-Sebastien Aubin finished up and stopped three of four during Saturday's 6-5 overtime win against Dallas.
Analysis: Aubin has won in three of his four appearances and has looked pretty decent in net. However, the Kings would love nothing more than to develop LaBarbera and he should see most of the starts in net. Aubin's Fantasy value is limited to leagues that use average points per game. The Kings TG is more of a No. 2 Fantasy option at this time.
News: A backup goalie and a sleep-deprived rookie made sure the San Jose Sharks stayed stuck in their early-season slump. Jean-Sebastien Aubin made 45 saves and Matt Moulson scored the go-ahead goal in his NHL debut as the Los Angeles Kings earned their fifth victory in six games, 5-2 over the Sharks on Friday night. "We needed (Aubin) to be great early, and he was," Los Angeles coach Marc Crawford said. "Everybody knows the Sharks are a really strong club, and that won't change. But great goaltending allows you to build confidence in yourselves." Aubin gave up seven goals and got pulled once in his only two previous appearances for the Kings this season, but Jason LaBarbera's veteran backup was sensational in his first start since Oct. 18. He made 34 saves in the first two periods under constant assault from San Jose's talented forwards, and his teammates rallied with four goals in the final 26 minutes.
Analysis: San Jose's 47 shots matched the most Aubin had faced in his nine NHL seasons. "It felt like a little more," Aubin said. "You know you're going to play (San Jose) eight times, so you'd better make sure you're ready. I felt pretty good this morning, but it was a tough game." The Kings will use LaBarbera as the starter on most nights and Aubin's Fantasy value is limited to leagues that use average points per game. The Kings TG is more of a No. 2 Fantasy option at this time.
News: The Los Angeles Times reports Jason LaBarbera will make his second straight start on Tuesday night against Nashville over Jean-Sebastien Aubin. LaBarbera posted 26 saves in a solid showing against Vancouver on Friday. Aubin might start on Thursday against Dallas if LaBarbera stumbles or even has an average performance.
Analysis: LaBarbera is battling Aubin for starts with Jonathan Bernier having been returned to his junior team. Coach Marc Crawford has said he will go with the hot hand at the time and that appears to be LaBarbera at the moment. LaBarbera and Aubin should both only be considered as a No. 3 options in cumulative Fantasy leagues right now.
News:The Sports Xchange notes: Making his second successive start after returning from a groin injury, Jean-Sebastien Aubin struggled on a couple of shots and finished with 25 saves in a loss to Calgary Thursday. Aubin was pulled after two periods, after he allowed four goals on 18 shots. The Flames scored three goals on 11 shots in the second period. Jason LaBarbera came in and stopped all 11 shots he faced in the third period.
Analysis: On Monday, the Kings returned 19-year-old Jonathan Bernier, perhaps their most-talented goalie, to his junior team, concerned that he would be adversely affected by continued losing and a lack of defensive support. That left Jason LaBarbera, a minor-league standout who has yet to establish himself as a NHL goalie, and Jean-Sebastien Aubin, who, at age 30, can now accurately be described as a journeyman, in goal.
News: Jean-Sebastien Aubin, who began the season on injured reserve because of a groin injury, made 28 saves in his 200th NHL game and first with the Kings on Tuesday against the Wild. "I didn't feel too much pressure. I just wanted to play a good first game because first impressions are always a big thing," said the 30-year-old Aubin, who also played for Pittsburgh and Toronto since making his NHL debut in 1988-89. "I've got to get used to everything we do, and I'm going to learn more and more about these guys and be even more comfortable."
Analysis: Rookie Jonathan Bernier, who was in net for the Kings' opening-night victory, was returned to his junior team in Lewiston, Maine on Monday after allowing 15 goals over his past three starts. Aubin is off to a good start with his new team. He and Jason LaBarbera will try and hold down the fort unless the team looks outside of the organization for help. Each goaltender is only worth a look in deeper Fantasy leagues at this point.
News: The Los Angeles Times reports Jonathan Bernier has officially been returned to Lewiston of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL). Jean-Sebastien Aubin (groin) has been activated from injured reserve to take his roster spot.
Analysis: Bernier should be dropped in all Fantasy leagues except for those which allow long-term keepers. Aubin will battle Jason LaBarbera for time in the crease, unless of course the team looks outside of the organization for goaltending help.
News: The Los Angeles Kings placed Jean-Sebastien Aubin on injured reserve to start the regular season due to a groin injury. The team is using 19-year-old prospect Jonathan Bernier and Jason LaBarbera as their two goaltenders.
Analysis: When healthy, Aubin is only worth a look in the deepest of Fantasy leagues. His return might force LaBarbera back to Manchester of the AHL.
News: TSN.ca reports Dan Cloutier has cleared waivers and will start the season with Manchester of the AHL, as he tries to make his way back to the AHL. For now, Jason LaBarbera and Jean-Sebastien Aubin will battle for the No. 1 job, with prospect Jonathan Bernier also in the mix.
Analysis: The big-time prospect Bernier has a legitimate chance to start as the Kings No. 1 backstop, but we still think they'll be cautious and use one of the veteran goaltenders. In any event, drop Cloutier off of your cheat sheets for now and consider avoiding all Los Angeles netminders until a clear-cut No. 1 emerges.
News: Jean-Sebastien Aubin replaced a mostly ineffective Dan Cloutier midway through the second period of Thursday's preseason opener at Anaheim and stopped all but one of the 18 shots he faced. Cloutier allowed three goals on 10 shots.
Analysis: Aubin, signed during the offseason, is battling for the starting goaltender job in Los Angeles. Jason LaBarbera, who did not play on Thursday, is also in the mix. Cloutier has been injury-prone over the past few seasons, so Aubin and LaBarbera might end up being the two most valuable Fantasy options.
News: The Los Angeles Kings signed Aubin to a one-year contract on Tuesday. He will battle with veteran Dan Cloutier and Jason LaBarbera for the starting job in Los Angeles.
Analysis: In 2005-06, he recorded a 9-0-2 record, a 2.22 goals-against-average and one shutout for the Maple Leafs. Aubin has also played in one career NHL post-season game, with the Penguins, in 2000-01. He is expected to wear No. 1. We expect Aubin to see about half of the starts in Los Angeles, making him a decent late-round selection on Draft Day.
News: Toronto backup goalie Jean-Sebastien Aubin made his first start Saturday since Dec. 29 -- a span of 27 games. He took the 3-1 loss at the hands of the Sabres. He stopped 26 shots in the loss.
Analysis: Aubin only should be owned in Fantasy leagues as insurance for Andrew Raycroft owners. He can't do your Fantasy team much help if he only starts once in a blue moon.
News: Andrew Raycroft allowed five goals on 16 shots in Monday's game at Montreal and he was pulled midway through the second period in favor of Jean-Sebastien Aubin. The backup stopped all eight of the shots he faced in the 5-4 loss.
Analysis: Coach Paul Maurice said he wanted to give Raycroft a rest, as he is likely to start Tuesday's game against Buffalo back at Air Canada Centre. It sounded like Aubin will be back to the bench for the game on Tuesday.
News: Toronto backup Jean-Sebastien Aubin replaced Andrew Raycroft to start the third period on Tuesday against the Bruins after Raycroft allowed three goals on 13 shots.
Analysis: Aubin is not a recommended play in any Fantasy format except for leagues which average points per game in a scoring period.
News: Toronto pulled G Andrew Raycroft after two periods Saturday against the Penguins with him giving up five goals on 21 shots. His replacement, Jean-Sebastien Aubin, did not fair much better in the final period by giving up three goals on nine shots.
Analysis: Raycroft had been on a roll going into Saturday's game, but the Penguins showed him who was boss. Raycroft remains a decent No. 2 or 3 Fantasy goaltender despite Saturday's whooping. Aubin is not much of a Fantasy option at this time.
News: Jean-Sebastien Aubin stopped nine of the 10 shots he faced in the third period on Tuesday against the Panthers, as he came on for an ineffective Andrew Raycroft. The starting Toronto netminder allowed six goals on 26 shots through the first two periods.
Analysis: Aubin might be rewarded with a start in Friday's game at Chicago, but he is not worth using in most weekly Fantasy leagues unless Raycroft goes down to another long-term injury.
News: TSN.ca reports Jean-Sebastien Aubin will start Tuesday's afternoon game against the Lightning instead of Andrew Raycroft.
Analysis: Aubin has allowed three or fewer goals in each of his past five starts, so perhaps if he plays well he can cut into Raycroft's time. Set your daily Fantasy lineups accordingly.
News: Maple Leafs G Andrew Raycroft was pulled after two periods on Saturday and replaced by Jean-Sebastien Aubin in a 5-1 loss to the Red Wings.
Analysis: Raycroft has been struggling in net as of late, losing five of his last six starts. Consider him a No. 2 Fantasy goalie at this time. Aubin is more of a No. 3 Fantasy goalie.
News: Jean-Sebastien Aubin allowed three goals on 24 shots in Thursday's loss at Boston.
Analysis: Aubin remains useful only as a No. 2 Fantasy goaltender in larger leagues which average points per game in a scoring period.
News: Jean-Sebastien Aubin started Thursday's game at Boston. He made 34 saves while allowing two goals, but it was not good enough to avoid an overtime loss.
Analysis: Aubin will likely be back to the bench as the backup to Andrew Raycroft (groin), perhaps as soon as Saturday's game against New Jersey.
News: Maple Leafs G Jean-Sebastien Aubin, playing for the injured Andrew Raycroft, made 25 saves Saturday in a 5-1 win over the Canadiens.
Analysis: Aubin is worth a look in all leagues as a No. 3 goaltender, as he could get a few more starts in place of Raycroft.
News: Aubin replaced an injured Andrew Raycroft (groin) midway through the second period in Thursday's game at Boston. He stopped five of the seven shots he faced.
Analysis: Aubin is worth a look in all leagues as a No. 3 goaltender, as he might see regular starts heading into Fantasy Week 7 (Nov. 13-19).
News: Jean-Sebastien Aubin lost for the first time since joining the Maple Leafs in March, dropping to 10-1-3 after a 4-2 loss to the Panthers on Thursday. He made 39 saves and fell to 1-1-1 this season.
Analysis: Aubin got the start as Andrew Raycroft got the night off. Aubin is only worth a look in larger Fantasy leagues which average points per game in a scoring period.
News: Jean-Sebastien Aubin got the start for the Maple Leafs on Saturday and led them to a 5-4 win over the Canadiens. The team's had to go to a shootout to decide the winner.
Analysis: Aubin got the start as Andrew Raycroft got the night off. Aubin is only worth a look in larger Fantasy leagues which average points per game in a scoring period.
News: Jean-Sebastien Aubin allowed six goals on 30 shots in Thursday's game at New Jersey and he took the loss in the shootout.
Analysis: The Maple Leafs had staked him to a 6-3 lead, but he allowed three goals to Brian Gionta in the third period and could not hold in the shootout. He is only worth a look in larger Fantasy leagues which average points per game in a scoring period.
News: Jean-Sebastien Aubin will start Thursday's game at New Jersey in place of Andrew Raycroft.
Analysis: Set your daily Fantasy lineups accordingly. The Maple Leafs TG remains a must-start in all leagues regardless.
News: It looks like during back-to-back games next week against Columbus and the New York Rangers, the Leafs may select someone other than Andrew Raycroft to start. Coach Paul Maurice is carrying three goaltenders at the moment, but said there was a danger in arbitrarily selecting when Jean-Sebastien Aubin or Mikael Tellqvist get their shot. "You can't tell a guy, 'you won't be playing for two weeks', because who knows what will happen in between," Maurice said. "You can't pick a game... so I don't tell them. Raycroft will play until I tell him he's not."
Analysis: Aubin and Tellqvist aren't worth picking up in Fantasy play until one emerges as the primary backup to Raycroft.
News: Jean-Sebastien Aubin allowed two goals on 29 shots in Wednesday's game against the Islanders to pick up another win.
Analysis: The former Penguin is 4-0-1 over his past five starts, allowing three or fewer goals in each of the outings. He has re-emerged as a useful Fantasy option in most leagues.
News: Jean-Sebastien Aubin stopped all 24 shots he faced in Saturday's whitewash of the Sabres to pick up his fourth-career shutout.
Analysis: Aubin got all kinds of goal support, as the Maple Leafs lit the lamp seven times for him. He has won three straight starts by knocking off the Devils last Sunday, the Flyers on Tuesday and the Sabres on Saturday. Not bad. He is a decent pickup, as coach Pat Quinn is going with the hot hand right now.
News: Jean-Sebastien Aubin stopped 28 of the 30 shots he faced in Tuesday's game at Philadelphia to win his second consecutive start.
Analysis: Aubin looked sharp in Sunday's win at New Jersey, so coach Pat Quinn rewarded him with another start. He did not disappoint, as he was extremely sharp against the Flyers and might very get a third consecutive start on Saturday when the Sabres pay a visit to the Air Canada Centre. He is only worth a look in larger Fantasy leagues right now, as the Toronto goaltending situation is very unsettled.
News: Jean-Sebastien Aubin is in between the pipes for Tuesday's start at Philadelphia, making his second consecutive start.
Analysis: If you can still change your daily Fantasy lineups, reserve Mikael Tellqvist and activate Aubin, although this is a bit of an unfavorable matchup.
News: Jean-Sebastien Aubin made 35 saves on 38 shots in Sunday's game at New Jersey, as he picked up a victory in place of starter Mikael Tellqvist.
Analysis: The goaltending situation is up in the air in Toronto and coach Pat Quinn will likely go with the hot hand as the team is desperately fighting for their playoff lives. That makes it difficult for Fantasy owners trying to figure out a starter, so avoid both for now.
News: Jean-Sebastien Aubin will likely stick around for the rest of the season as the backup to Mikael Tellqvist now that Ed Belfour (back) has been placed on injured reserve and is expected to be out for the year.
Analysis: Aubin is not even worth a look in larger Fantasy leagues just yet, because Tellqvist is expected to get a majority of the starts.
News: Ed Belfour (back) did not respond to recent treatment as well as the Maple Leafs had hoped according to the Toronto Sun. "We haven't had a lot of increased feedback but I did get a call (Friday) night that there has not been a lot of progress," coach Pat Quinn said on Saturday.
Analysis: Mikael Tellqvist will continue to start with Jean-Sebastien Aubin serving as the backup. Belfour remains day to day for now.
News: Jean-Sebastien Aubin was recalled from Toronto of the AHL on Tuesday to serve as the backup to Mikael Tellqvist against the Bruins.
Analysis: Ed Belfour's back is acting up and Aubin will be around as long as he is on the mend.
News: The Maple Leafs have recalled Jean-Sebastien Aubin from Toronto of the AHL to serve as the backup to Mikael Tellqvist with Ed Belfour dealing with what the team terms as a "lower body" injury.
Analysis: Aubin will serve as the backup to Tellqvist as long as Belfour is sidelined due to what is likely a back injury. No Fantasy value here unless Tellqvist also succumbs to some sort of an injury.
News: The Maple Leafs assigned Jean-Sebastian Aubin to Toronto of the AHL on Tuesday.
Analysis: Aubin will be recalled when either Ed Belfour or Mikael Tellqvist suffer their first long-term injury of the season. With Belfour's wonky back, that might be sooner rather than later.
News: Aubin has signed a one-year contract with the Maple Leafs on Thursday.
Analysis: Aubin will challenge Mikael Tellqvist to serve as the backup to starting netminder Ed Belfour. He will have minimal Fantasy appeal.
News: Jean-Sebastien Aubin might play in Russia next season. He is an unrestricted free agent after Pittsburgh did not make a qualifying offer to the netminder.
Analysis: Aubin might find work in the NHL, but most teams have plenty of depth at the goaltender position. He has no Fantasy value.
News: Jean-Sebastien Aubin (knee) missed Sunday's game against the Flyers.
Analysis: Aubin is banged up and will likely only be available on an emergency basis as a backup to Sebastien Caron this week. Keep him reserved in all Fantasy leagues.
News: The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Jean-Sebastien Aubin has a sprained knee, bruised kneecap and strained calf muscle from Thursday's game against Toronto. He will likely sit against Philadelphia Sunday.
Analysis: Sebastien Caron will likely start in Aubin's place.
News: The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette notes that Jean-Sebastien Aubin will start Tuesday against New Jersey. The team sent Sebastien Caron to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL leaving Aubin and rookie Marc Andre-Fleury as the team's goalies.
Analysis: Aubin has been playing well and should be used as a No. 2 goalie when he starts.
News: The Penguins recalled Aubin from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL on Wednesday, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Analysis: Aubin will take Marc-Andre Fleury's roster spot and serve as Sebastien Caron's backup.
News: The Penguins placed Jean-Sebastien Aubin on waivers on Wednesday to clear a roster spot for Marc-Andre Fleury, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Aubin will be assigned to Wilkes-Barre of the AHL if he is not claimed within 48 hours.
Analysis: Aubin is likely to wind up a backup if another team claims him, and he'll only be insurance against an injury if he stays in the Penguins' organization. He has no Fantasy value.
