News: Jeff Woywitka was recalled Saturday from AHL Peoria.
Analysis: Jeff Woywitka notched 11 points and 22 penalty minutes in 34 games for Peoria this season. Woywitka played 27 games for the Rangers last season but was waived by the Blues this season after not seeing the ice in the first three games and was assigned to Peoria.

Blues' Woywitka Placed On Waivers

News: Jeff Woywitka was placed on waivers Wednesday by the Blues, TSN reports.
Analysis: Jeff Woywitka, who played in 27 games for the Rangers last year, did not get into any of Blues' first three games this year. The team needs a roster spot for the eventual activation of Wade Redden. Woywitka will go to AHL Peoria if he clears waivers.

Woywitka Returns To St. Louis

News: Jeff Woywitka has signed a one-year, two-way contract with St. Louis, according to the Blues' Official Site.
Analysis: Jeff Woywitka spent last season with the Rangers where he played in 27 games and snagged six points. He spent four seasons with St. Louis from 2005-09. The two-way contract isn't a ringing endorsement for his draft status, but he has not been an offensive-minded player in his NHL career, with 55 points in 278 games.

Woywitka Back With Rangers

News: Jeff Woywitka (foot) has been recalled from AHL Connecticut, where he was on a conditioning assignment, the Newsday reports.
Analysis: With six points in 26 games, Jeff Woywitka hasn't made a big fantasy splash this season, but his return will be a nice boost to the Rangers' blue line depth.

Rangers Send Woywitka On Conditioning Assignment

News: Jeff Woywitka, who has returned to practice from a foot injury, has been sent down to the AHL for a conditioning assignment, Katie Strang of ESPN reports.
Analysis: Jeff Woywitka hasn't played since January 13, so the Rangers will give the blueliner a chance to find his ice legs in the minors. In 26 games this season, Woywitka has just six points in 10:29 of ice time per game, so the need for him to return isn't urgent.

News: Jeff Woywitka (foot) wore a non-contact jersey in practice Tuesday, the Bergen Record's Andrew Gross reports.

Woywitka Questionable For Rangers Tuesday

News: Jeff Woywitka (ankle/foot) is a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against New Jersey, Bergen Record writer Andrew Gross reports.
Analysis: Tim Erixon was recalled on an emergency basis in case Jeff Woywitka misses the game. Woywitka is primarily a deep-league consideration, so his presence or absence shouldn't affect much in the fantasy realm.

Rangers' Woywitka Scores Rare Goal

News: Jeff Woywitka scored his first goal of the year Thursday against Anaheim, the Rangers' lone goal of regulation play in the shootout win.
Analysis: That was just the ninth career goal in 257 games for Jeff Woywitka, who had in fact only been credited with one shot on goal in his five other games this year. With the Rangers having signed Anton Stralman to shore up their blue line, Woywitka needed to show something to stay in the lineup going forward, and he did.

Rangers' Woywitka Returns To Lineup Monday

News: After a one-game absence, Jeff Woywitka will return to the starting lineup against the Jets on Monday night, according to Newsday.
Analysis: Coach John Tortorella made it clear he didn't think Jeff Woywitka matched up well against the Oilers' speed, which was the main reason for the healthy scratch. They also took the opportunity to work on his conditioning and bring it up to the level Tortorella insists. Woywitka should get regular playing time, at least until the Rangers' defense gets fully healthy.
