Colaiacovo Would Re-sign With Blues

News: Carlo Colaiacovo, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, would like to re-sign with St. Louis but also wants more playing time after being a healthy scratch most of the season, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: You can't really blame the guy, as he was limited to just 25 games in 2013-14 and didn't suit up once in the postseason - something that especially bothered him. Carlo Colaiacovo's just 31, so the former first-round pick isn't exactly a dinosaur, but with just four points this year, maybe a change in scenery after four seasons with the Blues is just what he needs to regain his form from 2009-10, when he picked up 32 points in 67 games. His salary came in at the league minimum of $550,000 in his one-year contact this season, so he'd likely garner some consideration from budget-conscious teams looking for a cheap blueliner this summer if he and the Blues decide to part.

Blues' Colaiacovo In And Out Of Lineup

News: Carlo Colaiacovo is expected to be a healthy scratch Saturday against Colorado, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: With coach Ken Hitchcoack shuffling his blue line pairings this weekend, Carlo Colaiacovo will likely miss Saturday's game in favor of Barret Jackman, but could be back in Sunday for Jordan Leopold, who is coming back from a high ankle sprain and is not expected to play in back-to-back games. Colaiacovo has just four points in 20 games this season and should not be counted on for fantasy purposes at this point.

Blues' Colaiacovo Will Remain In Lineup Thursday

News: Carlo Colaiacovo, a frequent healthy scratch this season, will play in his fourth straight game Thursday against the Wild, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Coach Ken Hitchcock has stated that he likes his current D pairings and will keep them the same, meaning Colaicovo will be paired with the offensive-gifted Kevin Shattenkirk for the third straight game. It's hard to believe that the one-time 32-point veteran has only mustered three points in 17 games this season, but his assignment beside Shattenkirk should at least nudge him in the right direction. Unfortunately, Carlo Colaiacovo still isn't likely to crack either of the Blues' power-play units, so even a minimal uptick in point production would have to come solely at regular strength. Unless you're desperate and in the mood for a late-season, hail-mary pickup, it's wisest to avoid the 10th-year NHLer.

Blues' Colaiacovo In Saturday's Lineup

News: Carlo Colaiacovo will play Saturday against the Flyers, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Carlo Colaiacovo has been a healthy scratch for most of March, but will suit up for Saturday's game against Philadelphia, and presumably skate on the team's fourth line.

Blues' Colaiacovo Gets Goal In Return

News: Carlo Colaiacovo recorded his first goal of the season in Sunday's shootout win over the Wild.
Analysis: A healthy scratch the previous three games for the Blues, Carlo Colaiacovo came up huge Sunday, putting St. Louis up 2-0 in the first period on just their third shot of the game. It was his first goal since Feb. 11, 2012, spanning 42 games.

Blues Colaiacovo Rides The Pine

News: Carlo Colaiacovo has not seen any game action since January 1st for St. Louis.
Analysis: Carlo Colaiacovo played an extended period during Jordan Leopold's absence due to injury. Though he has not played since Leopold's return that could change. Leopold left the Blues' last game with a lower-body injury. If the injury lingers past the Olympic break Colaiacovo could see some ice time. Leopold is owned in very few leagues so this veteran is unlikely to help your squad either.

Blues' Colaiacovo To Suit Up Monday

News: Carlo Colaiacovo will play in Monday's game against the Kings, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Carlo Colaiacovo has appeared in just one game since signing with the Blues in mid-November, but he will take Ian Cole's place in the lineup Monday night.

Blues Officially Sign Colaiacovo

News: Carlo Colaiacovo officially signed a one-year contract with the Blues on Thursday, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Carlo Colaiacovo passed his physical and will now join the team to provide a veteran presence along the blue line. In his last full season in 2011-12, Colaiacovo posted two goals, 17 assists, 22 penalty minutes and a plus-seven rating.

Blues Will Sign Colaiacovo

News: Carlo Colaiacovo will sign a one-year deal with the Blues pending a physical Tuesday.
Analysis: Carlo Colaiacovo spent part of last season with the Red Wings before being waived in the offseason. He is an experienced defenseman and will provide the Blues with a veteran presence at the position on a deeper line.

Red Wings Waive Colaiacovo

News: The Red Wings waived Carlo Colaiacovo Tuesday, the first step in buying out his contract, the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: With Danny DeKeyser excelling for Detroit last season, Carlo Colaiacovo became expendable. The defenseman played in just six regular season games in 2013 and was primed to make $2.5 million in 2013-14 before being waived.

Colaiacovo Sitting For Wings On Thursday

News: Carlo Colaiacovo will be a healthy scratch for the third straight game Thursday, MLive.com reports.
Analysis: With Danny DeKeyser playing well, Carlo Colaiacovo is an odd-man out along with Ian White and Brian Lashoff as the Wings progress through the stretch run. Suffice it to say, he may not be back for the second year of his contract in 2013-14.

Wings' Colaiacovo Likely Sitting Friday

News: Carlo Colaiacovo was a minus-3 in Thursday's game and may be a healthy scratch Friday, the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: Rookie Danny DeKeyser is going to make his NHL debut Friday night, while Kyle Quincey is returning from IR. As a result, the Wings will have nine blueliners at their disposal and Carlo Colaiacovo looks like the odd-man out for this one.

Carlo Colaiacovo

Wings' Colaiacovo Returns Monday

News: Carlo Colaiacovo was minus-1 while playing 19:46 against the Avs on Monday night.
Analysis: Injuries have limited Carlo Colaiacovo to just three games this season, while Monday night marked his first time skating in front of a home crowd at Joe Louis Arena. Although the Wings traded away Kent Huskins recently, Colaiacovo still faces uncertain playing time because the of the depth on the blue line in Detroit.

Colaiacovo Recalled By Red Wings

News: Carlo Colaiacovo has been recalled by the Red Wings, the Oakland Press reports.

Wings' Colaiacovo On Conditioning Assignment

News: Carlo Colaiacovo has been assigned to Grand Rapids for a conditioning assignment, MLive.com reports.
Analysis: He's still on the 23-man roster, but the Wings can give him a few games to get back into the swing of things since he's been a healthy scratch since getting activated from IR over the weekend. Carlo Colaiacovo's time in Detroit could be nearing an end, as the Wings are rumored to be pursuing college free agent Danny DeKeyser.

Wings' Colaiacovo Sits Again Monday

News: Carlo Colaiacovo was a healthy scratch again Monday against Phoenix.
Analysis: Head coach Mike Babcock said that Carlo Colaiacovo still has a ways to go before he'll be ready to return to the lineup, despite his recent activation from IR. Nevertheless, the oft-injured blueliner seems to be inching his way back toward contributing again. His roster spot could be in jeopardy if the Wings are able to land former college free agent Danny DeKeyser, however, as DeKeyser is believed to be ready for a top-four role.

Wings' Colaiacovo Will Not Play Sunday

News: Carlo Colaiacovo will not play Sunday against the Ducks, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: Carlo Colaiacovo was activated from IR on Saturday and has been cleared to play, but Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said Colaiacovo has to earn his way back into the lineup. It's uncertain whether he'll do so by the time Monday's tilt rolls around.

Analysis: Carlo Colaiacovo hasn't played since the Red Wings' second game of the season, but he's finally back, nearly a month after he was first rumored to be nearing a return. He averaged 26.5 points and 64.8 games played over the past four seasons, all of which were spent with the Blues.

Analysis: Carlo Colaiacovo hasn't played since January 21, but indicated his shoulder is almost back to 100%. We've been hearing reports that he's close to retuning since mid-February though, so nobody actually knows how close he is.

Colaiacovo Likely Out For Wings' Next Three Games

News: Carlo Colaiacovo (shoulder) is expected to miss at least the next three games, MLive.com reports.
Analysis: It will be interesting to see what type of role is available once Carlo Colaiacovo is healthy, as rookie Brian Lashoff has been a pleasant surprise in the oft-injured blueliner's absence.

Wings' Colaiacovo Still Not Cleared To Return

News: Carlo Colaiacovo (shoulder) has not yet been cleared to play, MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Carlo Colaiacovo claims he's close to returning, but admits he's taking it a day at a time, so there's no concrete timetable for his reentry to the Wings' lineup.

Wings' Colaiacovo Could Return Sunday

News: Carlo Colaiacovo (shoulder) is nearing a return to action and could be ready to play Sunday against Chicago, the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: The oft-injured blueliner is a notoriously slow healer, so it's worth monitoring his progress in the coming days before making plans to activate him from your IR list.

Carlo Colaiacovo

Wings' Colaiacovo Could Return Soon

News: Carlo Colaiacovo (shoulder) could return at some point this week, the Detroit News reports.
Analysis: Carlo Colaiacovo was supposed to return from his shoulder injury sooner, but has been delayed by lingering pain. He could finally return at some point this week, which would give the Wings some much needed depth along the blue line.
