Westcott defects to Russian league

News: The Sporting News reports that free agent defenseman Duvie Westcott and center Mark Hartigan both signed with Dynamo Riga of the Continental Hockey League (Russia).
Analysis: The Blue Jackets bought out the final two years of Westcott's contract when last season came to an end. He scored one goal and added three assists in 23 games while finishing at minus-10 with 30 penalty minutes. He was slowed by an early-season concussion. Westcott was primarily an enforcer with the Blue Jackets and nothing more than a flier in Fantasy leagues that reward heavily for PIM.

Analysis: Westcott missed the final 40 games of last season because of lingering concussion symptoms, and he suffered another concussion earlier this season. It is great to see him on a conditioning assignment and a return is close. Still consider him an injury-risk start for Fantasy Week 7 (Nov. 12-18). He is nothing more than a low-end Fantasy option when healthy.

Analysis: Westcott missed the final 40 games of last season because of lingering concussion symptoms, and he suffered another concussion earlier this season.

Westcott suffers a concussion

News: Columbus defenseman Duvie Westcott sustained a head injury in Tuedsay's game at Chicago following a hit by Kevyn Adams late in the first period and didn't return. Coach Ken Hitchcock said Westcott, who had a concussion last season, might need several games to recover.
Analysis: When healthy, Westcott is a rugged defenseman worth a look in the deepest of Fantasy leagues which heavily reward penalty minutes. Keep him reserved in all formats or drop him if you need the roster space.

D Westcott playing in preseason

News: Duvie Westcott, making his way back from a concussion, has played in two preseason games and has two assists with a plus-1 rating and four penalty minutes so far.
Analysis: Westcott is a decent player to target in the later rounds on Draft Day, especially in Fantasy leagues which heavily reward penalty minutes. He might be a little shy to drop the gloves early on due to his recent concussion problems, however.

Duvie Westcott

Westcott is concussion-free

News: Duvie Westcott is free of post-concussion symptoms and might be ready for training camp in September. "It's a huge relief," Westcott told the Columbus Dispatch. "Just to hear the doctor say, 'You're cleared.' That's something I've waited a long time to hear."
Analysis: Westcott managed just 23 games in 2006-07 due to injury. He'll be a decent Fantasy option in deeper leagues and will be worth a look in the late rounds on Draft Day.

Westcott remains sidelined

News: D Bryan Berard (back), D Adam Foote (ankle) and D Duvie Westcott (concussion) all finished the season on injured reserve for the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Analysis: Westcott posted four goals, 10 points and a minus-13 rating in just 23 games. With a full season of work, Westcott might be a decent Fantasy option heading into the 2007-08 season, especially formats which heavily reward penalty minutes.

Four Columbus players out for season

News: The Columbus Blue Jackets will be without four top players - and possibly a fifth - for the rest of the season. General manager Doug MacLean said Wednesday that goaltender Pascal Leclaire (knee), defensemen Duvie Westcott (concussion), Bryan Berard (back) and forward Dan Fritsche (lacerated wrist) will miss the Blue Jackets' final 16 games. MacLean said Berard is out indefinitely with a recurring back problem that caused him to miss the second half of last season and most of this campaign.
Analysis: Leclaire, Westcott, Berard and Fritsche no longer have any value in seasonal leagues now they won't play the rest of the season. Leclaire and Fritsche are probably the only two players worth holding onto in long-term keeper leagues. Berard is too much of an injury-risk at this point in his career.

News: Duvie Westcott (concussion) is still having headaches and he cannot be re-evaluated until they subside. His return date remains uncertain at this point.

D Westcott out indefinitely

News: Duvie Westcott is out indefinitely due to a concussion suffered in Saturday's game at San Jose which was originally called an "upper body" injury.
Analysis: The team summoned D Derrick Walser from Syracuse of the AHL to take his roster spot. Expect him to be sidelined for at least a few weeks at the least, so you might want to drop him and try and pick him up at a later date.

News: The Columbus Dispatch reports Duvie Westcott is battling an undisclosed upper body injury and he is awaiting MRI results from a test done on Monday. He left Saturday's game in the third period.

Westcott taken off IR

News: The Columbus Blue Jackets activated Duvie Westcott off injured reserve Saturday after the defenseman had missed 19 games because of a broken finger.

He also ranked third on the club in ice time, averaging 22:27 per game.
Analysis: The Winnipeg, Manitoba, native is playing in his fourth NHL season and has nine goals and 41 assists in 166 games with the Blue Jackets. Last season he set career highs with six goals and 22 assists. Westcott is a useful Fantasy defenseman in larger leagues when healthy.

Westcott has finger surgery

News: Duvie Westcott (broken finger) had surgery on Monday and is expected to miss at least six to eight weeks. "He has a broken joint and they need to put a screw in it," general manager Doug MacLean told the Columbus Dispatch.
Analysis: Westcott has managed three goals and eight points in 12 games so far this season, so this hurts the Blue Jackets and Fantasy owners tremendously. Drop him in all leagues until at least mid-December when he should be getting back in the swing of things.
