Timonen Retires After Lifting Cup With Blackhawks

News: Kimmo Timonen was the first Blackhawk to be handed the Stanley Cup by captain Jonathan Toews following Monday's Game 6 victory over Tampa Bay, and he confirmed his retirement following the game, ESPN reports.
Analysis: Kimmo Timonen went without a point in 34 games (16 in the regular season, 18 in the playoffs) after being acquired by Chicago, so he clearly didn't have much fuel left in the tank. Thus, after winning his first Stanley Cup in a career that's spanned parts of three decades, Timonen said "that's it" on Monday, closing the books on a 15-year span during which he played in 1,108 games, recording 117 goals and 454 assists.

Blackhawks' Timonen Back In For Game 6

News: Kimmo Timonen will be back in the lineup for Wednesday's Game 4 against the Lightning, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: The much-maligned Kimmo Timonen will enter back in for Kyle Cumiskey, who played less than eight minutes in each of the first three games of the series. Timonen couldn't be trusted to see much ice time prior to being banished to the press box following Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals, but even in a limited role, coach Joel Quenneville appears confident the 40-year-old can deliver some reliable minutes. Timonen has been held without a point in his first 31 games (including playoffs) with the Blackhawks.

Blackhawks Expected To Pull Timonen From Lineup

News: Kimmo Timonen appears to be headed to the press box for Wednesday's Game 6 against the Ducks, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: The Blackhawks acquired Kimmo Timonen at the trade deadline with the hope that he'd provide the team with some added scoring punch from the blue line, but he's been a total bust. While it didn't help matters that he missed the first five months of the season while recovering from blood clots, Timonen just hasn't rounded into shape the way the Blackhawks imagined. In his 31 games with Chicago spanning the regular season and playoffs, Timonen has yet to record a single point and has become a defensive liability on the back end. With the Blackhawks facing elimination, it looks like Quenneville will make the tough choice to bench the accomplished veteran and turn to David Rundblad on the defensive pairing next to Brent Seabrook.

Blackhawks' Timonen Expected Back Wednesday

News: Kimmo Timonen (upper body) is expected to play in Wednesday's playoff opener against the Predators, CSN Chicago's Tracey Myers reports.
Analysis: Kimmo Timonen was able to return to practice Monday after sitting out the Blackhawks' final three regular-season contests due to the injury. The time off to recover should have him feeling refreshed heading into the playoffs, but it's difficult to have much enthusiasm about his prospects. He's been unable to tally a point in his 16 games with the Blackhawks, while putting only 10 shots on goal in the process. That lack of production will likely result in him seeing limited minutes throughout the first round.

Blackhawks' Timonen Back At Practice Monday

News: Kimmo Timonen (upper body) returned to practice Monday, CSN Chicago's Tracey Myers reports.
Analysis: The Blackhawks held Kimmo Timonen out of their final three regular-season games due to the injury, but the team never seemed concerned about him missing any action during the playoffs. While Timonen hasn't officially been declared ready to go for Wednesday's postseason opener, his participation on a regular pairing with Michal Rozsival suggests that will be the case. The Blackhawks are hoping the time off late in the season will have Timonen refreshed and ready to produce in the playoffs, as he was an extreme disappointment in the 16 games he did play in following his Feb. 27 acquisition from the Flyers. Timonen failed to register a single point and averaged only 11:59 of ice time.

Blackhawks' Timonen Out For Rest Of Regular Season

News: Kimmo Timonen (upper body) isn't traveling with the Blackhawks for their final two games of the regular season, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Analysis: Kimmo Timonen will sit out against the Blues on Thursday and Avalanche on Saturday, and finish his regular season with no points and a minus-3 rating in 16 games for the Blackhawks. After missing most of the season due to blood clots in his lungs and leg, Timonen made virtually no impact for the Blackhawks before this latest injury set in. The team is hoping that some added time to recuperate from the injury will have Timonen operating at full speed for their first game of the postseason.

Hawks' Timonen Out Tuesday

News: Kimmo Timonen (upper body) won't play Tuesday against the Wild.
Analysis: With Kimmo Timonen out, David Rundblad is slated to rejoin the Hawks' blue-line corps for Tuesday night's contest.

Hawks' Timonen Leaves Game

News: Kimmo Timonen (unspecified injury) will not return to Sunday's game against the Blues, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Entering Sunday's action, Kimmo Timonen had not recorded a point in 15 games since joining Chicago via a trade back in February. Consider the veteran blueliner day-to-day for now.

Kimmo Timonen

Hawks' Timonen Not Making Impact Yet

News: Kimmo Timonen has zero points and only six shots on goal in his eight games since being acquired by the Blackhawks on Feb. 27.
Analysis: The Blackhawks are taking their time with integrating Kimmo Timonen -- who missed several months while dealing with blood clots -- with the hope that he is back up to full speed for the Stanley Cup playoffs. Timonen had a little more than 13 minutes of ice time Saturday in the Blackhawks' 4-0 loss to the Stars. His minutes have increased in recent games, but Timonen did see a season-low 7:30 ice time Wednesday against the Rangers. While the team's cautious approach should have the 40-year-old fresh for when the games matter most, it's of little use to those in deeper leagues who hoped the move to a contending squad would immediately result in a steady dose of scoring. He's best left sitting on the waiver wire for now.

Hawks' Timonen Expected To Debut Monday

News: Kimmo Timonen (leg) will be on the ice for the first time as a Blackhawk on Monday against the Hurricanes and it will also be his first time skating since April 30, 2014, CSN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Kimmo Timonen practiced on Sunday after being acquired by the Blackhawks from the Flyers on Friday for two draft picks. It'll be Timonen's first game since last April — blood clots discovered in his leg and lungs last summer cost Timonen all of this season up to this point. Timonen is expected to be rusty for the first few games, but the Blackhawks are hoping that he sparks the back-end of the team's defense for the rest of the regular season and the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Timonen To Start Practicing Sunday With Blackhawks

News: Kimmo Timonen (blood clots) will join the Blackhawks on Sunday and participate in practice, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Friday's surprise deal that sent Kimmo Timonen to the Blackhawks for two draft picks will delay his season debut a bit, but after getting in a skate with his new team, he should be ready to play Monday against the Hurricanes. It remains to be seen where exactly coach Joel Quenneville will slot the 39-year-old in his lineup, but the expectation is that he'll pair up with one of the Blackhawks' top two blueliners, Duncan Keith or Brent Seabrook.

Flyers' Timonen Traded To Blackhawks For Picks

News: Kimmo Timonen (blood clots in leg) was traded to the Blackhawks on Friday for a 2015 second-round draft pick and a 2016 conditional fourth-round draft pick, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: The Flyers made no secret of their desire to trade away Kimmo Timonen to a contending club in what will be his final NHL season, but it was thought that he'd receive at least a one-game sendoff Saturday in front of the Philadelphia fans before a team acquired him. Instead, the Blackhawks, who were apparently satisfied with the Flyers' reports regarding the blueliner's health despite the fact he has yet to play this season due to blood clots, decided to swoop in with the surprise acquisition. Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville has repeatedly tinkered with his defensive pairings for the last several games, and the addition of Timonen should add yet another interesting wrinkle to those plans. Even as he nears age 40, Timonen still offers plenty of offensive upside on the blue line, and makes for a strong speculative pickup in just about any format with the move to one of the Western Conference's top squads. Expect Timonen to make his season and Blackhawks debut Monday against the Hurricanes.

Flyers' Timonen Says He's 'Good To Go' Saturday

News: Kimmo Timonen (leg) said after Thursday's morning skate that he is "good to go" for Saturday's game against the Rangers, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: With Kimmo Timonen declaring himself ready, it will now be up to coach Craig Berube to decide whether or not to use him. Timonen has shown no issues with the blood clot in his leg since he resumed skating, so the expectation is that the Flyers will formally activate him from their non-roster injury list. In order to make room for Timonen's return, the Flyers are expected to send Carlo Colaiacovo to AHL Lehigh Valley.

Flyers' Timonen Nears Return

News: Kimmo Timonen (leg) indicated that the earliest he will play is Saturday against the Rangers, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Kimmo Timonen, who has been practicing since Feb. 17, is taking things a step at a time, and will thus miss at least two more games. "I feel it's going the right way," Timonen noted in advance of Tuesday's game against the Hurricanes. "I just have to feel I'm 100 percent when I'm out there."

Flyers' Timonen Traveling With Team

News: Kimmo Timonen (leg) will travel with the Flyers on their upcoming two-game road trip, but it's no guarantee that he'll be cleared to return Tuesday or Thursday, the Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: He's making progress, as evidence by his return to practice last week, and that he was on the ice Monday while his teammates received a day off. For now, consider his potential activation from IR to be a day-to-day situation, with his season debut seemingly most likely to come Saturday against the Rangers.

Flyers' Timonen Puts In Full Practice

News: Kimmo Timonen (blood clots) took part in his first full practice with the Flyers on Wednesday, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: The 39-year-old didn't see much contact in his first activity with teammates since the summer, but he should steadily increase his involvement over the next few days. Kimmo Timonen hasn't ruled out a return to action for Tuesday's tilt with the Hurricanes, but the Flyers' games on either Feb. 26 or 28 sound like the more realistic target dates for his season debut. The blueliner did rule out the idea of getting in a conditioning game with AHL Lehigh Valley prior to his return, so it looks like he'll continue to practice with the Flyers until receiving the green light to play.

Flyers' Timonen About 10 Days Away From Return

News: Kimmo Timonen (blood clots), who returned to practice Tuesday, indicated that he still needs about 10 days before he's ready to return to action, Sarah Baicker of CSN Philly reports.
Analysis: With that in mind, Baicker suggests that the Flyers' Feb. 28 contest against the Rangers could represent a plausible return target for the veteran blueliner.

Flyers' Timonen To Join Team For Practice Tuesday

News: Kimmo Timonen (blood clots) will begin practicing with the Flyers on Tuesday, Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
Analysis: Kimmo Timonen has been limited to skating on his own as he eases his way back into action after he receiving clearance to resume his career earlier this month. The Flyers were initially targeting Feb. 21 for Timonen's season debut, but GM Ron Hextall has since backed away from that return date, suggesting the blueliner would probably need a little more time to get conditioned. With Timonen planning to retire after the season, the Flyers are hoping he can return to action for at least a game or two before the Mar. 2 trade deadline in an effort to showcase himself to a playoff-bound team in need of help on defense.

Flyers' Timonen Targeting Pre-Deadline Return

News: Kimmo Timonen (blood clots) is tentatively targeting a return to the lineup Feb. 28 against the Rangers, Randy Miller of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: Kimmo Timonen resumed his rehab activity last Friday and will require a couple more weeks of working out to get back to full strength after being sidelined since August with the blood clots. The Flyers will see how Timonen progresses in his subsequent sessions over the next several days before a return date will be more accurately pinpointed. If Timonen does indeed return before the end of February, it might be enough to convince playoff contenders to make a trade for the 39-year-old in what will mark his last NHL season.

Flyers' Timonen Two Weeks Away, At Best

News: Kimmo Timonen (blood clots), who skated with the Flyers on Friday, believes he is at least two weeks away from returning to game action, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Friday's session was the start of a de facto training camp for Kimmo Timonen, who has been off the ice since August, when he was first diagnosed with blood clots in his lungs and right leg. The clots in his lungs have since dissipated, and while his leg isn't fully cleared of the issue, doctors don't believe Timonen's desire to continue playing will have significant long-term consequences. At this point, it appears the only hurdle in the way for Timonen is simply to get conditioned. Once healthy, the 39-year-old would likely reclaim a top-four role on defense for the Flyers after leading all of the team's blueliners in scoring with 35 points a season ago.

Flyers' Timonen To Pursue Comeback

News: Kimmo Timonen (blood clots) plans to resume skating with the Flyers on Friday, Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
Analysis: After talking things over with doctors, it appears Kimmo Timonen will attempt to make a comeback from the blood clots in his leg. There's undoubtedly still plenty of risk to Timonen's long-term health with pursuing return to action, so it's not necessarily a lock that he will end up playing this season if he endures complications during his upcoming workouts. Since he's been sidelined since the clots were discovered in August, Timonen will likely require several weeks to get his conditioning up to par, making it difficult to pinpoint a potential timetable for his return.

Flyers GM Calls Audible On Timonen's Status

News: Flyers general manager Ron Hextall refuted coach Craig Berube's claims that Kimmo Timonen (blood clots) was set to return later in the season, suggesting a decision on the blueliner's status hasn't been made yet, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "Kimmo communicated with us: 'I'm coming back?' I said, 'What do you mean?' He said, 'Well, it's on TV," Hextall said. "Kimmo and myself don't know whether Kimmo is coming back."
Analysis: While Berube never explicitly said Kimmo Timonen would return to action this season, his apparent optimism was enough for media outlets to take the leap and report as much. Hextall's refutation of the story doesn't indicate Timonen won't return this season; the Flyers are simply awaiting more information from doctors regarding the blueliner's test results. A more official announcement on Timonen's status should come before long.

Flyers' Timonen Planning On Late-Season Return

News: Kimmo Timonen (blood clots) is preparing for a late-season return, NJ.com reports.
Analysis: Kimmo Timonen has dealt with blood clots in his lungs and right leg, which made retirement a very real possibility. The clots in his lungs are now gone, and while he's still dealing with the issue in his leg, Timonen may be able to play without making a full recovery. It's still unclear when he will resume skating, so a potential return is quite a ways off. It does sound as if Timonen and the Flyers consider his return to be far better than a 50/50 proposition.

Flyers' Timonen Still Dealing With Blood Clots

News: Kimmo Timonen's medical checkup with doctors revealed Saturday that he is no longer experiencing blood clots in his lungs, but still is experiencing clots in his legs, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: While the partially good news is better than no good news at all, the fact that Kimmo Timonen still has clotting of any sort will likely prevent him from taking the ice in the near future. The 39-year-old Timonen remains hopeful of keeping his career going, but he'll look to make a final decision on his status after consulting with multiple doctors during a conference call next Wednesday. Timonen was first diagnosed with the blood clots back in August and hasn't practiced with the Flyers since.

CT Scan On Tap For Flyers' Timonen

News: Kimmo Timonen (blood clots in leg) will have a CT scan at some point in mid-January, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Multiple medical experts will assess Kimmo Timonen's scans to determine whether the blueliner can continue his career, or if the clots will force his retirement. Even if Timonen receives good news on that front, he'll remain at risk for further clotting should he decide to keep playing. Given his advancing age and the life-threatening ramifications at hand, it still seems unlikely that he'll suit up at any point in the second half of this season, and quite possibly, ever again.
