Volchenkov Signs With Preds

News: Anton Volchenkov has agreed to a one-year, $1 million deal with the Predators.
Analysis: The 32-year-old Anton Volchenkov adds experience and depth to the Preds' blue line, but he's off the fantasy radar in most formats, coming off a 2013-14 campaign in which he recorded eight assists and 20 PIM in 56 games for New Jersey.

Devils Place Volchenkov On Unconditional Waivers

News: Anton Volchenkov has been placed on unconditional waivers for the purpose of a compliance buyout, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: Anton Volchenkov hasn't been a major factor for the Devils over the past few seasons, so this move wasn't overly surprising. The 32-year-old defensemen will be free to sign with another team if he goes unclaimed, and the Devils will have a bit more cap flexibility to work with in free agency.

Devils' Volchenkov A Possible Buyout Candidate

News: The Devils are contemplating using one of their compliance buyouts on Anton Volchenkov, a veteran defensemen with two years at $4.25 million left per season, according to the Newark Star-Ledger's Rich Chere.
Analysis: This shouldn't be a surprise to those who have followed the Devils as Anton Volchenkov hasn't been a terribly effective player the last few seasons. Some of that time has been plagued by injury, but the veteran Russian contributes little to the team's attack and has appeared slow on the ice. The Devils have a logjam of players like Volchenkov on the blue line.

Devils' Volchenkov Scratched Sunday

News: Anton Volchenkov was scratched from Sunday's season finale, Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger reports.

Devils' Volchenkov Out Tuesday

News: Anton Volchenkov (lower body) will not play Tuesday against the Sabres, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

Anton Volchenkov

Devils' Volchenkov Out Monday

News: Anton Volchenkov (lower body) will not play Monday against the Panthers.
Analysis: The blueliner is still dealing with a nagging lower-body injury and will sit out again Monday. Anton Volchenkov has no goals and seven assists through 51 games this season, so his absence should only affect the deepest of fantasy leagues.

Devils' Volchenkov Won't Play Thursday

News: Anton Volchenkov (lower body) will not play Thursday against the Coyotes, Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: Anton Volchenkov was able to skate Wednesday morning, but has already been ruled out for Thursday's contest. The blueliner's absence shouldn't affect too many fantasy rosters, though, considering he has no goals and seven assists in 51 games on the season.

Devils' Volchenkov (Lower Body) Out Sunday

News: Anton Volchenkov will miss Sunday's contest with a lower body injury, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

Devils' Volchenkov Recovered From Injury

News: Anton Volchenkov indicated that he's fully recovered from the lower-body injury he sustained Jan. 31, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: The Devils expect to have him available for Thursday's game against the Blue Jackets after he took the extended Olympic break to recover from the injury. Anton Volchenkov previously represented Russia in the 2006 and 2010 Games, but the host country bypassed him for a roster spot this time around.

Devils' Volchenkov Out Friday

News: Anton Volchenkov (lower body) will not play in Friday's game against the Oilers, The Record reports.
Analysis: Anton Volchenkov skated the last couple days, and it was thought that he would be a game-time decision Friday. However, the Devils decided to rule him out well ahead of game time. Though Volchenkov will miss his second straight game Friday, he has an outside shot to return for Saturday's game against the Capitals.

Devils' Volchenkov A Game-Time Decision Friday

News: Anton Volchenkov (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Friday's game against the Oilers, Rich Chere of The Ledger reports.
Analysis: Anton Volchenkov missed the Devils' last game Monday due to his injury, but he practiced Thursday and took part in the Devils' morning skate Friday, so he has a chance to play. Expect another update on Volchenkov's status once the Devils decide whether or not he will suit up Friday night.

No Volchenkov At Devils Practice Tuesday

News: Anton Volchenkov (lower body) failed to practice Tuesday, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Devils' Volchenkov Out Monday

News: Anton Volchenkov (lower body) will not play Monday against the Avalanche, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: Anton Volchenkov will be replaced by Peter Harrold on the Devils' blue line. Volchenkov has seven assists on the season, so his absence shouldn't be too big of a loss for fantasy owners.

Anton Volchenkov

Devils' Volchenkov Out Monday

News: Anton Volchenkov (lower body) is not expected to play Monday against the Avalanche, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

Devils' Volchenkov Will Skate Monday Morning

News: Anton Volchenkov (lower body) will skate Monday morning to see if he can play against the Avalanche, the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: A lower-body injury forced Anton Volchenkov from Friday's game and prevented him from practicing Sunday, but he'll test the injury Monday morning and the team will decide afterward if he can play against Colorado. If not, Peter Harrold (foot) will slot into the lineup.

News: Anton Volchenkov (general soreness) returned to practice with the Devils on Monday, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
