Penguins Send Kobasew To AHL

News: The Penguins have assigned Chuck Kobasew to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
Analysis: Chuck Kobasew, who recorded two goals in 33 games for the Penguins this season, heads back to the AHL for now, but he provides the team with an experienced forward option should injuries hit during the playoffs.

Pens Recall Kobasew

News: Chuck Kobasew was recalled by the Penguins on Sunday, Shelly Anderson of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: The veteran winger will likely be a temporary call up for Sunday's season finale. However, he could be a replacement for one of the two currently listed day-to-day in Chris Kunitz and Taylor Pyatt if they aren't healthy enough for the start of the playoffs.

Pens Reassign Kobasew

News: Chuck Kobasew was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Wednesday.
Analysis: After passing through waivers unclaimed, Chuck Kobasew will head out to the minors to clear the way for Marcel Goc's addition to the Pittsburgh roster. Kobasew had some early-season heroics with game-winning goals in his first two games, but he's offered no points in his 30 games since.

Pens' Kobasew Placed On Waivers

News: Chuck Kobasew was placed on waivers by the Penguins on Monday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
Analysis: Chuck Kobasew was on the ice for Monday's practice, so there's still a chance the Penguins will keep him with the big club even after he passes through waivers unclaimed. The 31-year-old has two points in 31 games and is strictly organizational forward depth for the Penguins.

Pens' Kobasew Struggling To Score

News: Chuck Kobasew has two goals and no assists in 30 games this season.
Analysis: Chuck Kobasew started the season hot with two game-winning goals in his first two games, but hasn't been on the score sheet since. He missed most of January with a lower-body injury, but got five games in before the break. He'll continue to play mostly a depth role when games resume.

Pens' Kobasew Likely To Play Monday

News: Chuck Kobasew (lower body) is expected to return to the lineup Monday against the Panthers, Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: Not only will Chuck Kobasew be playing in his first game since Dec. 31, but he also figures to earn an appointment as the right wing on the Sidney Crosby line. Skating alongside arguably the world's best player could certainly ignite Kobasew's production, as the 31-year-old had just two points in 25 games before his latest injury.

Pens' Kobasew Back Practicing

News: Chuck Kobasew (lower body) took part in practice Saturday.
Analysis: Chuck Kobasew had been skating on his own for several days before, so his return to practice doesn't come as a major shock. He could be one of several injured Penguins to make their return to game action Monday vs. the Panthers. Kobasew, who scored goals in his first two games with Pittsburgh and went goalless in his next 23, is expected to skate on the third or fourth line.

Pens' Kobasew Looks To Be Out Tuesday

News: Chuck Kobasew (lower body) appears to be unavailable Tuesday vs. the Canucks, Shelly Anderson of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Chuck Kobasew didn't participate in regular line rushes during morning skate and looks like he'll miss his third straight contest with the lower-body injury. The Penguins have moved Deryk Engelland over from defenseman to forward to fill out their four lines with Kobasew unavailable.

Pens' Kobasew Nursing Lower-Body Injury

News: Chuck Kobasew is day-to-day with a lower-body injury, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Chuck Kobasew was absent from Saturday's practice with the injury, putting his status in question for Sunday's game vs. the Jets. The Penguins don't exactly have a lot of available replacement options with six other forwards on IR, which may force Kobasew to tough things out Sunday if his injury isn't too severe.

Pens Activate Kobasew Thursday

News: The Penguins activated Chuck Kobasew (lower body) off IR on Thursday, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Chuck Kobasew hasn't suited up since October 28. He could line up at right wing on Pittsburgh's second line with Jussi Jokinen and James Neal. Kobasew has two goals in 12 games for the Pens.

Pens' Kobasew Practicing This Week

News: Chuck Kobasew (lower body) resumed practicing with the Penguins on Monday, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Chuck Kobasew has been out of commission since Oct. 26 after suffering a lower-body injury that night against the Hurricanes, missing the team's last 16 games. The winger was initially expected to miss only three-to-four weeks with the injury, but it looks like that timetable was overly optimistic. He could be a possibility for the weekend if he progresses well during practice this week.

Pens' Kobasew Returns To Practice Thursday

News: Chuck Kobasew (lower body) returned to practice Thursday, Shelly Anderson of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Chuck Kobasew practiced for the first time in four weeks, though it's unclear whether he has a chance to play this weekend. The Penguins face Tampa Bay on Friday and Florida on Saturday.

Chuck Kobasew

Pens' Kobasew Could Return To Practice Soon

News: Chuck Kobasew (lower body) could return to practice within the next few days, Shelly Anderson of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Everything has gone smoothly for Chuck Kobasew in his solo skates, and it sounds like the 31-year-old will be back on the ice with his teammates before the end of the week. The 31-year-old would then be on track for a return before the end of the month.

Pens' Kobasew Sees Recovery Timetable Increase

News: Chuck Kobasew is expected to be out for 3-4 weeks rather than the 2-3 he was initially projected to miss, NHL.com's Dan Rosen reports.
Analysis: The lengthy injury will open up extended ice time for Jayson Megna, who is expected to slide into Chuck Kobasew's spot in the top nine. Kobasew has just two points and a plus-3 rating in 12 games this season.

Penguins' Kobasew Out 2-3 Weeks

News: Chuck Kobasew will miss 2-3 weeks with a lower-body injury.
Analysis: Chuck Kobasew left Monday's game with the lower-body injury and did not return. He will miss at least a few weeks and could be a candidate to be placed on injured reserve to clear a roster spot at some point.

Penguins' Kobasew Leaves With Undisclosed Injury

News: Chuck Kobasew left Monday's game with an undisclosed injury and will not return, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Dave Molinari reports.
Analysis: Chuck Kobasew departed in the first period and was later ruled out for the remainder of the contest. With just two points (both goals) and two PIM through 12 games, he hasn't been a huge fantasy contributor.

Pens' Kobasew Crashing The Net

News: Chuck Kobasew netted his second goal of the year -- and second game-winner -- Saturday against the Sabres.
Analysis: He's getting time on different lines, including action with Evgeni Malkin and Jussi Jokinen. He's not doing anything fancy and could cool at any time, but his willingness to crash the net is something not typically seen in Pittsburgh -- and it's paying off handsomely for Chuck Kobasew.

Pens' Kobasew Scores Thursday

News: Chuck Kobasew scored the game-winning goal in Pittsburgh's 3-0 win over New Jersey on Thursday.
Analysis: A day after signing a one-year deal, Chuck Kobasew served on the Pens' third line. He logged more than 15 minutes (15:28), recording two shots, two blocks and four hits. The team isn't expecting goals from Kobasew, but his all-around strong debut Thursday likely surprised more than a few onlookers.

Chuck Kobasew

Pens Sign Kobasew

News: The Penguins signed Chuck Kobasew to a one-year, $550,000 contract Wednesday.
Analysis: The veteran winger impressed enough during his professional tryout that he warranted signing, and will now likely play a depth forward role for the Pens. He recorded five goals and four assists in 37 games with the Avalanche last season, and his days of putting up 42 points in 2008-09 with the Bruins seem like a distant memory at this point.

Kobasew's Chances Of Making Team Increasing

News: Chuck Kobasew's chances of cracking the Opening Night roster would improve if the Pens place Kris Letang on long-term injured reserve, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: Chuck Kobasew was already likely to make the team, but if the Penguins place Letang on the long-term IR list, then the team would have more cap space to sign Kobasew. From a fantasy perspective, the fourth-line forward won't see many minutes and hasn't had a 10-goal season since 2008.

Pens Sign Kobasew To Tryout Contract

News: The Penguins signed Chuck Kobasew to a professional tryout contract Wednesday.
Analysis: He hasn't hit double digits in scoring since potting 22 goals in 2008-09 as a member of the Bruins. Pittsburgh is looking to fill several spots on its third and fourth lines, giving Chuck Kobasew a chance to show what he's got left in the tank.

Avs' Kobasew Returns To Lineup

News: Kobasaw suited up Monday night against the Blue Jackets after missing the previous eight games due to a back injury, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: In his first game back, Chuck Kobasew played 12 shifts and received 7:22 of ice time. Kobasew has totaled eight points this season for the Avs.

Avalanche's Kobasew Out With Back Injury

News: Chuck Kobasew will not play Tuesday due to a back injury.
Analysis: The extent of the injury is unknown, but it did prevent Chuck Kobasew from playing in Monday's game as well. Consider him questionable for Colorado's next game Friday against the Red Wings.

Avs' Kobasew Back In Lineup

News: Chuck Kobasew (illness) will play Thursday against Columbus, the Denver Post reports. According to Avs coach Joe Sacco, he could play left wing on the third line in place of the injured Steve Downie (knee).
Analysis: Chuck Kobasew was scratched in the first two games of the season after missing most of training camp with the flu. As he is averaging just 15 points per season over the last three years, govern your fantasy expectations for Kobasew accordingly.

Avs' Kobasew To Play In Home Opener

News: Chuck Kobasew (illness) is expected to be available for Tuesday's home opener against the Kings, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Chuck Kobasew missed the team's season-opening 4-2 loss against the Kings on Saturday. He'll slot in on the Avs' fourth line, and after he posted 14 points and 51 penalty minutes in 58 games last season, there's not a whole lot to get excited about for fantasy purposes.
