Preds' Volchenkov (Lower Body) Back In Tuesday

News: Anton Volchenkov (lower body) will return to the lineup Tuesday versus the Blues, NHL.com's Robby Stanley reports.
Analysis: Anton Volchenkov missed five consecutive contests with the injury, but was probably missed by few fantasy players, as he only has three points on 25 games this season. He'll replace Victor Bartley on the Preds' third defensive pairing.

Preds' Volchenkov To Miss Third Straight

News: Anton Volchenkov (lower body) will not be available for Tuesday's game against the Bruins, Eric Stromgren of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: The Predators will give Anton Volchenkov until after the Christmas holiday to heal up from the injury, as he'll sit for the third straight contest Tuesday. There hasn't much word regarding his progress from the injury he sustained last Tuesday, making an exact return date difficult to pinpoint at this time.

News: Anton Volchenkov (lower body) will not play against the Blue Jackets on Monday, Eric Stromgren of the Tennessean reports.

Preds' Volchenkov Exits Tuesday With Injury

News: Anton Volchenkov left Tuesday's game against the Bruins with a lower-body injury and will not return, Eric Stromgren of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Anton Volchenkov had dealt with what was classified as a leg injury as recently as last week, so it wouldn't be especially surprising if what was revealed that he suffered some sort of aggravation. The blueliner accrued no meaningful statistics in his 2:56 of ice time before leaving.

Preds' Volchenkov Returns To Action

News: Anton Volchenkov (leg) returned to the lineup Tuesday versus the Avalanche, logging 10:03 of ice time.
Analysis: Though Anton Volchenkov saw over three minutes fewer of ice time than he normally receives, coach Peter Laviolette may have chosen to limit his workload a bit coming off the leg injury. Volchenkov was generally not expected to play Tuesday, but his early return aided the Predators in their 3-0 victory.

News: Anton Volchenkov (leg) is considered unlikely to play Tuesday against the Avalanche, Eric Stromgren of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Anton Volchenkov was able to join the Predators for Tuesday's morning skate, but his lack of participation in pairing work suggests he's not quite ready to return. Victor Bartley is set to replace him in the lineup, though Volchenkov could be ready to go when the Predators head to Arizona for a game Thursday night.

Preds' Volchenkov Available Tuesday

News: Anton Volchenkov has completed his four-game suspension and will be available Tuesday against the Oilers.

Preds' Volchenkov Suspended For Four Games

News: Anton Volchenkov was suspended for four games Sunday following his hit on Flames' forward Michael Ferland.
Analysis: Anton Volchenkov has just two points this season through ten games, and will have to wait another four before he can increase that total. The suspension will keep him out of game action until Nov. 11 against the Oilers unless he appeals.

Preds' Volchenkov Assists Twice

News: Anton Volchenkov assisted on both of the Predators' goals in their shutout win over the Jets on Friday.
Analysis: The points were Anton Volchenkov's first of the season, but he shouldn't be counted on to offer many contributions on the offensive end. Instead, he'll play a stay-at-home role on the pairing with youngster Seth Jones, offering most of his utility in the form of hits and blocked shots.

Anton Volchenkov

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.

Devils' Volchenkov Possible For Tuesday

News: Anton Volchenkov (lower body) will travel to Buffalo for Tuesday's game, and he may be available to play, Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: Anton Volchenkov last played March 22 and is apparently nearing a return. He's yet to score a goal this season, but his work on the back end has been useful for the Devils.

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

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.
