News: LeNeveu has been sent back down to Springfield of the AHL, according to Thomas Reed of the Columbus Dispatch.
Analysis: While we'll always have to wonder if this is the same Springfield that Homer Simpson and family reside, we can pretty much say with certainty that LeNeveu will now not be starting either of the Blue Jackets' last two games.
Columbus' LeNeveu Makes First Appearance Since 2006
News: LeNeveu played the final period in the Blue Jackets' 6-1 loss to St. Louis Sunday, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: LeNeveu was scored upon twice in the third period. It was his first appearance in the majors since 2006.
News: Columbus recalled LeNeveu on an emergency basis Friday, Columbus Dispatch writer Aaron Portzline reports.
Analysis: No injuries have been mentioned for Steve Mason or Mathieu Garon, so it's not clear how his presence serves Columbus at the moment. In any case, he's not likely to stick around too long.
News: LeNeveu has been sent back to Springfield (AHL), Aaron Portlzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: With Steve Mason (groin) expected to be healthy enough to play again, LeNeveu had to be returned to the AHL because he was only up with the big club on an emergency basis.
News: LeNeveu has been called up on an emergency basis by the Blue Jackets, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: The Jackets are a mess in goal right now, so perhaps this move is a sign of further chances. In any case, the recall is only on an emergency basis at this time.
News: With Jean-Sebastien Giguere back with the Ducks, the team no longer needed the services of G David LeNeveu. They sent the 25-year-old back to the AHL.
Analysis: LeNeveu is 5-9-0 with a 3.38 ERA in his NHL career and has no Fantasy value while a third-string goalie.
News: Anaheim recalled goalie David LeNeveu from Iowa of the American Hockey League to back up Jonas Hiller on Friday.
Analysis: Jean-Sebastien Giguere is on leave in Montreal following his father's death. When he returns, LeNeveu will be returned to the minors. Leave him on the waiver wire.
News: The Ducks G David LeNeveu has been called up by the Ducks to back up Jonas Hiller while Jean-Sebastien Giguere deals with the death of his father.
Analysis: LeNeveu is 5-9-0 with a 3.38 ERA in his NHL career and has no Fantasy value while a third-string goalie.
News: The Ducks have recalled D Brett Festerling from Iowa (AHL) and assigned G David LeNeveu to Iowa.
Analysis: This move with LeNeveu was necessary because Jean-Sebatien Giguere is back with the team after taking some time off for personal reasons. Neither of these guys has any Fantasy value.
News: The Ducks have called up G David LeNeveu to cover for starter Jean-Sebastien Giguere, who has left the team for personal reasons.
Analysis: LeNeveu is third in the Ducks' depth chart behind Jean-Sebastien Giguere and Jonas Hiller. Until that changes permanently, he will spend most of the season in the minors. It's safe to ignore him in Fantasy.
News: The Ducks sent goalie David LeNeveu back to Iowa of the AHL after Thursday's season-opening loss to the Sharks.
Analysis: LeNeveu is third in the Ducks' depth chart behind Jean-Sebastien Giguere and Jonas Hiller. Until that changes, he will spend most of the season in the minors. It's safe to ignore him in Fantasy.
News: The Anaheim Ducks recalled G David LeNeveu from Iowa (AHL) on Wednesday.
Analysis: This move is likely just a salary cap thing, so LeNeveu will remain the Ducks' third-string goalie and has no Fantasy value at this time.
News: The Ducks signed G David LeNeveu to a one-year contract on Monday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. LeNeveu appeared in 34 games in 2007-08 with San Antonio and Hartford of the AHL, posting a 17-10-5 record with a 2.33 goals-against average and .916 save percentage.
Analysis: The 6-1, 187-pound goaltender has appeared in 21 career NHL contests (all with the Phoenix Coyotes), posting a 5-9-2 record with a 3.38 GAA and .888 save percentage. He has not appeared in the NHL since 2006-07 and was even traded to the Rangers last season. LeNeveu is nothing more than organizational depth and can be ignored in Fantasy formats.
News: The Phoenix Coyotes sent RW Fredrik Sjostrom, G David LeNeveu and LW Josh Gratton to the Rangers on Tuesday for W Marcel Hossa and G Al Montoya.
Analysis: Sjostrom has the most immediate Fantasy value out of these three, although he needs to get more consistent with his play if he wants to increase his ice time. Gratton and LeNeveu are currently in the AHL and only have value in keeper formats.
News: Mikael Tellqvist stopped nine of the 10 shots he faced in Monday's preseason game against the Avalanche. David LeNeveu replaced him in the second period and allowed two goals on 10 shots.
Analysis: Tellqvist is battling David Aebischer for the starting job in Phoenix. For now, the job is anything but decided. Don't forget Alex Auld (knee) is also in the mix for the Coyotes. Avoid all of the goaltenders on Draft Day until coach Wayne Gretzky gives a definitive answer on his starter. That might be a while.
News: Coyotes G David LeNeveu got yanked in the second period of Saturday's game against the Kings after giving up three goals on 16 shots. Curtis Joseph came in and took the loss despite only allowing one goal on 22 shots.
Analysis: Despite the decent performance in relief on Saturday, CuJo has been pretty bad this season. He should not be used for Fantasy purposes at this time. The same can be said for LeNeveu, who hasn't been that bad, but doesn't play all that much.
News: Coyotes G Curtis Joseph was replaced at the beginning of the third period by David LeNeveu on Friday after giving up five goals in the first two periods. LeNeveu gave up one goal in the third and the Coyotes lost 6-2 to the Ducks.
Analysis: Joseph has been absolutely horrendous this season and should not be used for Fantasy purposes at this time.
News: Coyotes goalie David Leneveu allowed seven goals in Saturday's loss to the N.Y. Rangers. He faced 35 shots in the game and was only able to stop 28 of them.
Analysis: The 23-year-old LeNeveu had recently earned his first career victory, but this has to be considered a big setback. Think of Levenue as nothing more than a reserve Fantasy goaltender at this time. The Coyotes TG is worth using as a No. 2 unit.
News: Goaltender David LeNeveu didn't have long to think about his first start of the season. LeNeveu, who was promoted from San Antonio early on Thursday, found out at the morning skate that he would be starting against Edmonton that night. He responded by making 32 saves to lead the Coyotes to a 6-2 victory over the Oilers. Phoenix snapped a four-game losing streak and climbed out of the Western Conference cellar. "They call guys up for a reason," LeNeveu said. "I didn't put any pressure on myself. Why put any pressure on yourself when you don't need to? I just came in with all the confidence, tried to play my game and give the team a chance to win. That's all they can ask."
Analysis: The 23-year-old LeNeveu earned his fourth career victory -- and another start Saturday night against the New York Rangers. "David's young and he played a good game," coach Wayne Gretzky said. "Why not ride him?" Gretzky quickly added that veteran Curtis Joseph is still his No. 1 goalie. "One game doesn't make a career," Gretzky said. "I'm happy for David, but Curtis is our guy." LeNeveu was recalled to replace Mike Morrison, who was assigned to San Antonio after clearing waivers. Morrison had a 6.14 goals-against average in four games. Think of Levenue as nothing more than a reserve Fantasy goaltender at this time. The Coyotes TG is worth using as a No. 2 unit.
News: The Phoenix Coyotes recalled goalie David LeNeveu from San Antonio on Thursday, one day after waiving backup goaltender Mike Morrison. The 23-year-old LeNeveu played in 13 games for Phoenix last season with a 3-8-2 record and 3.24 goals against average. He will be the new backup to starter Curtis Joseph. The Coyotes, 2-8 overall, have lost four in a row heading into Thursday night's game against Edmonton. Morrison has cleared waivers and will be assigned to San Antonio, the Coyotes' AHL.
Analysis: Levenue struggled in his stint with the Coyotes last season and probably will have some work to do to unseat CuJo as the team's top goalie. Although, with the team struggling a major change in net could be coming soon. Think of Levenue as nothing more than a reserve Fantasy goaltender at this time.
News: The Arizona Republic reports Philippe Sauve is expected to start Tuesday's game at Colorado, as David Leneveu and Curtis Joseph will look on.
Analysis: Set your daily Fantasy lineups accordingly. Leneveu should get at least one more start before the end of the season.
News: David Leneveu allowed three goals on 26 shots in Monday's game against the Sharks, but he was beaten by Jonathan Cheechoo for two goals and bested by Vesa Toskala.
Analysis: Leneveu is getting a long look for the Coyotes, as coach Wayne Gretzky and the organization determine if he has long-term value for the club or not.
News: The Arizona Republic reports Joseph will be back between the pipes for Tuesday's game against the Predators after sitting for the past two games in favor of backup David Leneveu.
Analysis: Set your daily Fantasy lineups accordingly, as Leneveu will not get his third consecutive start.
News: David LeNeveu, recalled from San Antonio of the AHL on Wednesday, made his second straight start. He was on the short end of a 5-2 loss vs. Anaheim.
Analysis: Coach Wayne Gretzky wants to give Leneveu a long look after lighting it up in the AHL lately, so he might be worth picking up in larger Fantasy leagues if you need goaltending depth down the stretch.
News: David Leneveu allowed three goals on 40 shots, as he looked very impressive in Thursday's win against the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Let's keep in mind that Leneveu was facing one of the worst teams in the league, but he did look impressive. Coach Wayne Gretzky wants to give Leneveu a long look after lighting it up in the AHL lately, so he might be worth picking up in larger Fantasy leagues if you need goaltending depth down the stretch.
News: David Leneveu was recalled from San Antonio of the AHL on Wednesday.
Analysis: Leneveu had been tearing up the AHL recently and should get a handful of starts down the stretch for the Coyotes to evaluate his future with the team.
News: David Leneveu is only 4-9-1 with a 3.16 GAA in 14 games for San Antonion of the AHL this season.
Analysis: LeNeveu is still considered the Coyotes' goalie of the future, but that future is not within the next 12 months.
News: David LeNeveu was assigned to San Antonio of the AHL over the weekend.
Analysis: LeNeveu will backstop the Rampage until an injury occurs in Phoenix. With Brian Boucher and Curtis Joseph, that is likely just a matter of time.
News: David Leneveu made his second start of the season on Tuesday in Dallas, turning away 20 shots and allowing three goals. He was got the nod with Curtis Joseph nursing a groin injury.
Analysis: Leneveu is playing right now because Joseph and Brian Boucher (groin) are out of action. He is likely ticketed for San Antonio of the AHL once both are ready to return.
