Brian Boucher

Flyers' Boucher Loaned To AHL

News: Brian Boucher was loaned to AHL Adirondack on Saturday.
Analysis: Brian Boucher has been backing up Ilya Bryzgalov over the past month, but the Flyers swapped him for fellow goalie Michael Leighton on Saturday. The 36-year-old Boucher went 0-2-0 in four appearances since his recall, but he did post a decent 2.50 GAA.

Flyers' Boucher Takes Loss In First Start

News: Brian Boucher had 25 saves Saturday in a loss at Montreal, allowing three goals in his first start of the season.
Analysis: Brian Boucher's start represented a breather for Ilya Bryzgalov who entered the evening leading all NHL goalies in minutes played. Though he kept the game close in the first period, as the Flyers were outshot 12-2, Philly eventually fell to the Canadiens 4-1. Even if Bryzgalov were injured Boucher would not be a good pickup considering the Flyers' offensive woes.

Flyers' Boucher In Goal Saturday

News: Brian Boucher will get the start in goal Saturday against the Canadiens, Ren Lavoie of RDS reports.
Analysis: It will mark Brian Boucher's second start of the season, the first of which came earlier this week against the Jets. With the Flyers anxious to make up ground in the standings during the compressed season, Boucher's starts should remain scarce as long as top goaltender Ilya Brzygalov is playing well.

Flyers' Boucher Defers To Bryzgalov

News: Brian Boucher's teammate, Ilya Bryzgalov, will start Tuesday's game against the Jets, Tim Panaccio of CSNPhilly.com reports.
Analysis: It was thought that Brian Boucher would start Tuesday's game after Bryzgalov started Monday, but the Flyers decided to stick with their workhorse against the Jets after all.

Flyers' Boucher Likely To Start Tuesday

News: Brian Boucher is expected to start in goal Tuesday, according to Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Analysis: Ilya Bryzglov, who started Monday, has started 12 of the last 13 games, so it looks Brian Boucher's in line to give him a breather Tuesday night.

Flyers' Boucher Stops Nine In Relief

News: Brian Boucher came in for a struggling Ilya Bryzgalov against the Maple Leafs on Monday. He made nine saves on 10 shots in 33:45.
Analysis: Right now, there is no chance Brian Boucher takes the starting job, and he will likely continue to be an infrequently used backup.

2/10/2013

Brian Boucher, G, PHI

Brian Boucher

Flyers Recall Boucher

News: The Flyers have recalled Brian Boucher from AHL Adirondack, Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News reports
Analysis: The report notes that it appears that Michael Leighton -- who has one start to date backing up Ilya Bryzgalov -- has an injury. Assuming that's the case, then Brian Boucher may get a start either Monday or Tuesday, with the Flyers playing back-to-back games those days against the Leafs and Jets.

Brian Boucher

Flyers' Boucher Sent To AHL

News: Brian Boucher was assigned to AHL Adirondack on Friday, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: The 36-year-old goalkeeper made only eight starts last season, and went 1-6-1 with a 3.40 GAA. It looks like he'll begin the year in the AHL after passing through waivers unclaimed.

Brian Boucher, G, PHI

Brian Boucher

Flyers Waive Boucher

News: Brian Boucher was waived by the Flyers on Wednesday.
Analysis: The team expects to send Brian Boucher to the Adirondack Phantoms of the AHL, which GM Paul Holmgren said was the team's plan all along. Boucher was acquired from the Hurricanes on Sunday in exchange for another minor leaguer.

Flyers Reacquire Boucher

News: The Flyers have acquired Brian Boucher and Mark Alt from Carolina for minor-leaguer Luke Pither, reports NHL.com.
Analysis: Brian Boucher's already been a Flyer twice, and now he enters his third stint. He'll back up Ilya Bryzgalov.

Carolina's Boucher (Shoulder) Out Four To Six Months

News: Adding to an already difficult goaltending situation for the 'Canes, veteran Brian Boucher will be sidelined four to six months following shoulder surgery, the Raleigh News and Observer reports.
Analysis: If his recovery goes as planned and the 35 year-old American is diligent in working himself back to game-shape, Brian Boucher could return to his normal relief role before the Winter Classic.

Carolina's Boucher Allows Three In Sunrise

News: Making his eighth start of the season, Brian Boucher allowed three goals off of 25 shots Saturday night versus Florida in a 4-1 loss for the Hurricanes.
Analysis: Brian Boucher has never secured for himself a true starting job in the NHL, and can therefore be of very limited help to your fantasy squad.

Boucher Set To Start Carolina's Season Finale

News: Brian Boucher will start Saturday's season finale against the Panthers, according to Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News and Observer.
Analysis: Brian Boucher, whose last start was March 31, will close out a season that will see the Hurricanes shut out of a playoff spot, with the only thing at stake for the team Saturday being last place in the Southeast Division.

Brian Boucher

Canes' Boucher Lets In Five

News: Brian Boucher allowed five goals on 31 shots faced Saturday night against the Devils.
Analysis: Brian Boucher faced 28 of those shots in the first two periods and was constantly getting bombarded by the Devils. It wasn't necessarily a bad goalie performance as much as it was poor defense in front of him. Either way, this was probably Boucher's last appearance of the season.

Brian Boucher

Canes Boucher To Start Saturday

News: Brian Boucher will start Saturday against New Jersey, according to Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News and Observer.
Analysis: Saturday's game is the second of back-to-back games for the Hurricanes so Brian Boucher is getting the start. No injury to incumbent Cam Ward.

Brian Boucher

Canes' Boucher To Start Saturday

News: Brian Boucher will get the nod on Saturday vs. the Wild, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News and Observer reports

Canes' Boucher Coming Off IR

News: Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford announced Friday that the team will remove Brian Boucher (lower body) from injured reserve, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Brian Boucher has been sidelined since Dec. 5 with a lower-body injury, and the team send down Justin Peters now that he's ready to return and backup Cam Ward. Before going down, Boucher recorded a 3.27 GAA and a 0-4-1 record in seven games. He won't be a great fantasy option going forward.

Hurricanes' Boucher Practices

News: Brian Boucher (lower body) returned to practice Wednesday, the Hurricanes' official site reports.
Analysis: Coach Kirk Muller estimated that Brian Boucher is at least 10 days away from being in game shape, but Wednesday's presence at practice is a big step in the goaltender's recovery nonetheless.

Brian Boucher

Canes Boucher

News: Brian Boucher (lower body) is "getting closer" to a return, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News and Observer reports.
Analysis: There still is no exact return date for Brian Boucher, but he is definitely going in the right direction towards returning from his lower body injury.

Canes' Boucher Out Another Two Months

News: Brian Boucher will be sidelined by his lower body injury for another couple of months, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News and Observer reports.

Canes' Boucher Will Miss A Couple Of Weeks

News: Brian Boucher (lower body) will miss a couple of weeks, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: This news reportedly comes from the mouth of Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford. This likely means there is a start for Mike Murphy in the near future but he can be left on free agent wires as well.

Canes' Boucher Day-To-Day With Lower Body Injury

News: Brian Boucher suffered a lower body injury Monday night, according to Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer.
Analysis: Brian Boucher's status going forward is unclear, but consider him questionable for Tuesday's game. While Justin Peters earned the AHL "Goalie of the Month" award for November with AHL Charlotte, it was Mike Murphy who was recalled on an emergency basis.

Canes' Boucher Remains Winless

News: Brian Boucher stopped 37 shots in a 3-2 loss to Pittsburgh on Saturday night.
Analysis: It's just his fifth start of the season and he remains without a win. There's really no need to have him rostered at this point unless your rosters are enormous.

Hurricanes Go With Boucher In Net Saturday

News: Brian Boucher is on the ice for the pre-game skate and looks to be the starting goaltender for Saturday's tilt with the Penguins, according to Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer.
Analysis: It will be a rare night off for regular starter Cam Ward, who was winless in six starts prior to Saturday's game and clearly needed a rest. Brian Boucher is 0-3-1 in six appearances so far this season and will look to bag his first win Saturday against the Pens.
