Tyler Arnason, C, FLA Arnason signs a two-way contract

Tyler Arnason

Arnason signs a two-way contract

News: The Rangers signed free-agent center Tyler Arnason to a two-way contract Friday. Arnason finished with five goals and 17 assists in 71 games for the Avalanche in 2008-09. He failed to score a goal in his last 14 games and was a healthy scratch 11 times.
Analysis: It's a shame how far Arnason has fallen. One bad season in the NHL and now he can't even get a guaranteed roster spot. He has to sign a two-way contract? Ouch. Clearly, Arnason has to have a strong training camp with the Rangers in order to make the team. The once reliable Fantasy forward now has little to no appeal Draft Day.

Tyler Arnason, C, FLA Arnason likely done with Avs

Tyler Arnason

Arnason likely done with Avs

News: The Sports Xchange reports with top centers Joe Sakic and Paul Stastny sidelined for long periods of time, the Avalanche needed Tyler Arnason to pick up his game in 2008-09. If anything, he regressed. Playing in the final year of a two-year, $3.35 million contract, Arnason was a non-factor in most games and finished with five goals and 17 assists in 71 games. He failed to score a goal in his last 14 games and was a healthy scratch 11 times.
Analysis: Arnason is as good as gone after scoring 15 goals in two seasons following a 16-goal campaign in 2006-07 that enabled him to swing a two-year, $3.35 million deal. Perhaps a fresh start with do Arnason some good. Still, Arnason might be more of a third or fourth-line center wherever he lands. He is not going to have much Fantasy value Draft Day.

Tyler Arnason, C, FLA Arnason appears on outs in Colorado

Tyler Arnason

Arnason appears on outs in Colorado

News: The Sports Xchange reports Avalanche C Tyler Arnason appears to be on his way out of Colorado. Arnason, who will become an unrestricted free agent this summer, was a healthy scratch for the fourth time in the last 10 games Sunday against the Canucks. Even when in uniform, Arnason has been getting less than 10 minutes of ice time lately.
Analysis: Arnason has just five goals and 17 assists in 64 games this season. He is also at minus-13. He had a pretty good first season with Colorado in 2006-07, but has severely declined the last two seasons. Arnason is not a recommended Fantasy option at this time.

3/8/2009

Tyler Arnason, C, FLA

Tyler Arnason

Arnason has three-assist game

News: Colorado C Tyler Arnason increased his points total on the season by three on Sunday, helping out on three Avalanche goals on Sunday against the Blackhawks. He had failed to record a point in his last four starts after scoring a goal against Washington on Feb. 20.
Analysis: Arnason had a breakout performance on Sunday, but don't expect it to translate into increased Fantasy value. Leave him on waivers considering his Fantasy value.

2/21/2009

Tyler Arnason, C, FLA

Tyler Arnason

Arnason has two goals in four games

News: Avalanche C Tyler Arnason notched his fifth goal during Friday's 4-1 win against the Capitals. The Avalanche stretched it to 3-1 when Arnason scored early in the third period after a Washington turnover in its own zone. He has scored twice in his last four games.
Analysis: Arnason couldn't buy a goal for most of the season and now he has two in his last four outings. Don't expect this to last. Arnason is still just a marginal offensive talent and has little to no Fantasy value.

2/14/2009

Tyler Arnason, C, FLA

Tyler Arnason

Arnason nets power-play score

News: Colorado C Tyler Arnason scored a goal during Friday's 4-2 loss to the Canadiens. Arnason tied it at 2 on a power-play goal midway through the third period. It was his fourth goal of the season and first in 10 games.
Analysis: Arnason has had ample opportunities to step up in 2008-09 and become a offensive threat for the Avalanche, but he has been very passive and that has cost him dearly. Arnason will struggle to make it to 30 points this season and has low-end Fantasy appeal.

2/3/2009

Tyler Arnason, C, FLA

Tyler Arnason

Arnason has third multi-assist game

News: Avalanche C Tyler Arnason tallied a pair of assists and finished at plus-1 in 16:18 of ice time Monday against the Flames. It was his first points in five games and his third multi-assist game of the season.
Analysis: Arnason has had ample opportunities to step up in 2008-09 and become a offensive threat for the Avalanche, but he has been very passive and that has cost him dearly. Arnason will struggle to make it to 30 points this season and has low-end Fantasy appeal.

Tyler Arnason

Arnason scratched on Saturday

News: Colorado C Tyler Arnason was a healthy scratch Saturday against Anaheim. He's been a major disappointment this season with one goal in the past 38 games and only four goals in 48 games this season. Arnason will be an unrestricted free agent on July 1, and the Avalanche surely won't re-sign him.
Analysis: Don't even consider Arnason at this point if he's not even going to be starting every night. He has been an overall disappointment and should be dropped in all leagues.

Tyler Arnason

Arnason ends long goal drought

News: Avalanche C Tyler Arnason scored a goal in Friday's game against Edmonton. He finished the game with a plus-1 rating. It was his first goal since Oct. 30 against Columbus.
Analysis: Arnason had not scored a goal in 33 games, but he is currently on a streak of four straight games with at least a point. Fantasy owners should think about taking a flier on him in deeper leagues if a stopgap is needed for as long as he can remain even quasi-productive.

1/15/2009

Tyler Arnason, C, FLA

Tyler Arnason

Arnason has assist in three straight

News: Avalanche C Tyler Arnason tallied an assist and finished at even during Thursday's game against the Blues. He has an assist in three straight games, but Arnason still hasn't scored since Oct. 30 -- a span of 33 games.
Analysis: Arnason was moved to the team's top line in late December after both Paul Stastny and Joe Sakic went down with injuries. After he failed to produce, he was bumped to the lower lines. He has remained there, but Arnason finally seems to be coming around. Still, the fact he can't find the back of the net limits his Fantasy appeal.

1/5/2009

Tyler Arnason, C, FLA Arnason taken off top line

Tyler Arnason

Arnason taken off top line

News: The Sports Xchange reports the Tyler Arnason experiment as the Avalanche's top center has ended. Arnason, who failed to collect a point in four games as a replacement for the injured Paul Stastny (forearm), has been replaced by Wojtek Wolski, a center in junior hockey who has played left wing for most of his NHL career. Avalanche coach Tony Granato said that Wolski would remain on the No. 1 line with left wing Ryan Smyth and right wing Milan Hejduk for Tuesday's road game against the Nashville Predators in the Sommet Center.
Analysis: Arnason, who has gone 28 games without a goal, was dropped to the third line with left wing Darcy Tucker and right wing Marek Svatos. "We have to just keep trying to get the guys that are going best and look like they might have a chance of being on a line that's going to work," Granato said. Arnason had a golden opportunity to make an impact in the NHL and Fantasy, but blew it for the time being. Until his offensive game emerges, Arnason has minimal Fantasy appeal.

12/29/2008

Tyler Arnason, C, FLA Arnason a top-line center

Tyler Arnason

Arnason a top-line center

News: The Sports Xchange reports barring a trade for a top center, the Avalanche will be counting on two struggling players to anchor the top forward lines until Joe Sakic and Paul Stastny recover from long-term injuries. Tyler Arnason, who has gone 24 games without a goal, has been elevated to the No. 1 unit with left wing Ryan Smyth and right wing Milan Hejduk. T.J. Hensick, who has one goal in 22 games since his Nov. 6 recall from the minors, is skating on the second line between left wing Wojtek Wolski and right wing David Jones, though Marek Svatos also is getting time on the right side.
Analysis: The Avalanche went 5-7-3 last season from Jan. 18 to Feb. 20 when Sakic was recovering from surgery for a sports hernia and Stastny from an appendectomy. Arnason scored four of the 10 goals he scored last season during that period, while Hensick collected five of his six goals. "We lost them both last year for a month," said Arnason, who has two goals and eight points in 34 games this year. "It happens. It's the nature of the game, and guys have to fill in and do the job. Our goal is to get this team into the playoffs. I'm just one player on this team, so I'm stepping into a role they want me to. With guys going down, I guess I have to step it up a bit." Arnason is merely a stopgap Fantasy option for the time being.

Arnason gets 2 assists Tuesday

News: Colorado C Tyler Arnason recorded two assists in Tuesday's lambasting of the Los Angeles Kings. Arnason assisted on the first goal of the game for Marek Svatos and was then apart of Cody McLeod's 2nd period goal to make it 5-0 Avs.
Analysis: Arnason has eight points on the year now and has limited Fantasy appeal. He's been a healthy scratch a few times this season and hadn't recorded a point in four straight games before Tuesday.

Tyler Arnason

Arnason has assist streak going

News: Avalanche C Tyler Arnason assisted twice in a win over the Lightning on Saturday. He now has a three-game assist streak going, during which he has four helpers.
Analysis: Arnason has limited Fantasy appeal and has been scratched a few times this season.

11/11/2008

Tyler Arnason, C, FLA Arnason not impressing Granato

Tyler Arnason

Arnason not impressing Granato

News: The Rocky Mountain News reports that Avalanche C Tyler Arnason, who was a healthy scratch Saturday, has to play better to return to the lineup, according to his coach Tony Granato. "The bottom line is we have to dress the 12 forwards that give us the best chance to win, and I didn't think 'Arnie' was one of those 12 forwards for that game," Granato said. "It's pretty simple; there's other guys that deserve to be playing in front of him."
Analysis: Arnason, who is in the final year of his contract, has only two goals in 13 games this season. Arnason had limited Fantasy appeal when he was seeing regular time, but now he is being scratched, you can probably ignore him most formats.

Tyler Arnason

Arnason looking over his shoulder

News: The Sports Xchange reports Avalanche C Tyler Arnason was scratched for the first time this season Saturday against the Predators and is in danger of losing regular playing time to second-year C T.J. Hensick.
Analysis: Arnason, who is in the final year of his contract, has only two goals in 12 games while the speedy Hensick has collected an assist in each of the two games he's played since being recalled from the Lake Erie Monsters in the American Hockey League. Arnason had limited Fantasy appeal when he was seeing regular time, but now he is being threatened won't help his case.

Tyler Arnason

Arnason gets on the board

News: Avalanche C Tyler Arnason scored his first goal of the season Saturday at Dallas. He finished the game with an even plus/minus rating after just 10:49 of ice time.
Analysis: Arnason isn't part of the top lines and does not get enough ice time to be considered a reliable Fantasy option just yet. He remains a low-end Fantasy center.

10/3/2008

Tyler Arnason, C, FLA

Tyler Arnason

Arnason to anchor third line

News: The Sports Xchange reports Avalanche C Tyler Arnason is likely to center a gritty third line in 2008-09 with offensive potential, with Darcy Tucker on the left and David Jones on the right. Checking center Ben Guite will skate with left wing Cody McLeod and right wing Ian Laperriere.
Analysis: Arnason's production took a dip from 2006-07 to 2007-08, as he managed just 31 points last season after getting 49 the year before. Joe Sakic and Paul Stastny are the team's top two centers, and as long as they are healthy, Arnason will be buried on the third line. He remains a low-end Fantasy center.

Arnason tags Oilers for another goal

News: Tyler Arnason had a goal and an assist and the Colorado Avalanche moved into sole possession of first place in the Northwest Division with a 5-1 win over the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night. Colorado has won eight of nine, including five straight at home. The Avalanche own the division lead outright for the first time since Dec. 18.
Analysis: Arnason has four goals and three assists against the Oilers this season. Arnason remains a low-end Fantasy option.

Tyler Arnason

Arnason cold after hot spell

News: The Sports Xchange reports Avalanche C Tyler Arnason has gone three games without scoring following a six-game stretch in which he had three goals and eight assists. Typically tough on Chicago, the former Blackhawk was quiet Sunday, managing only two shots on goal.
Analysis: Arnason hasn't been able to click with Ryan Smyth, who recently returned from an ankle injury. It might not be long before Arnason is bumped off the top line completely as Paul Stastny (appendix, groin) is on the verge of returning. Arnason remains a low-end Fantasy flier.

2/10/2008

Tyler Arnason, C, FLA Arnason continues to contribute

Tyler Arnason

Arnason continues to contribute

News: Avalanche C Tyler Arnason made it 16 points in his last 13 games when he tallied a goal and two assists Saturday in a 6-2 rout of the Canucks.
Analysis: Arnason has been on fire since returning from a wrist injury in mid-January. With Joe Sakic, Paul Stastny and Ryan Smyth all out injured, Arnason is making the most of his increased ice time. His stock will drop once at least two of those injured players return, but if you need some immediate scoring help in deeper leagues, then grab him.

Tyler Arnason

Arnason makes it 10 points in last 10

News: Avalanche C Tyler Arnason made it 10 points in his last 10 games Saturday when he tallied a goal and an assist in a 6-4 win over the Blues. Arnason now has 20 points on the season.
Analysis: Arnason missed almost a month of action in late December/early January with a wrist injury, but has jumped right back in offensively for the Avs and has half of his 20 points since returning to action. Still, he remains just a low-end Fantasy forward at the moment, with value only in super-deep leagues.

Tyler Arnason

Arnason scores fourth goal

News: Avalanche C Tyler Arnason scored a goal and finished at plus-1 during Sunday's 3-1 win against the Blue Jackets. Arnason gave Colorado a 3-0 lead with his fourth goal of the season and first since Nov. 7, just 3:33 into the third period. He now has four points (one goal, three assists) in his last four games.
Analysis: Arnason has played just six games since returning from a wrist injury, but has looked good while the Avalanche continue to deal with a rash of injuries. Arnason has been a solid points contributor when healthy, but is still just a No. 5 or No. 6 Fantasy forward when healthy.

Tyler Arnason

Arnason has two-assist night

News: Avs C Tyler Arnason assisted on two goals as Colorado defeated the Carolina Hurricanes 5-4 on Saturday night.
Analysis: Arnason now has three goals and nine assists this season and is just a low-end Fantasy option in deeper leagues that shouldn't be starting at the moment.

Tyler Arnason, C, FLA

Tyler Arnason

Arnason returns to ice

News: Colorado activated C Tyler Arnason for Wednesday's 2-1 loss at Washington. Arnasson was sidelined for 12 games with a wrist injury. He attempted four shots on goal against the Capitals. Arnasson has three goals and seven assists in 31 gasmes this season.
Analysis: Arnason has recorded more than 45 points in his last three seasons, but is still just a low-end Fantasy option when healthy.
