Lasse Kukkonen

Kukkonen going back overseas

News: Free agent defenseman Lasse Kukkonen signed a contract with Avangard Omsk of the Kontinental Hockey League (Russia).
Analysis: Kukkonen has extensive overseas experience, but not in the KHL. He has had two separate stints in the Finnish League. Kukkonen has totaled six goals and 22 points in 159 NHL games. Je spent the last three seasons as part of the Flyers organization. Kukkuon was never a top offensive player and will hardly be missed in Fantasy.

Lasse Kukkonen, D, PHI Kukkonen demoted to AHL Saturday

Lasse Kukkonen

Kukkonen demoted to AHL Saturday

News: The Flyers recalled defenseman Nate Guenin from the Philadelphia Phantoms, and loaned right winger Claude Giroux and defenseman Lasse Kukkonen to the American Hockey League affiliate Saturday.
Analysis: Kukkonen has no goals and two assists in 22 games this season. He is nothing more than roster depth for Philly and has little to no Fantasy value when active in the NHL.

1/10/2009

Lasse Kukkonen, D, PHI

Lasse Kukkonen

Kukkonen waived again

News: The Flyers have waived D Lasse Kukkonen for the second time this season.
Analysis: Any guy that has been waived twice in a season has no Fantasy value whatsoever.

Lasse Kukkonen, D, PHI

Lasse Kukkonen

Kukkonen clears waivers, plays Sat.

News: The Sports Xchange reports Flyers D Lasse Kukkonen cleared waivers on Friday and played a regular defensive shift Saturday night in Montreal. He had filled in at center two nights earlier in Pittsburgh.
Analysis: Kukkonen was put on waivers because it appeared the team was close to signing Brendan Shanahan and needed the cap space. Shanahan still remains a free agent, but Kukkonen might eventually be shipped out of town when the team is ready to sign the veteran winger. Kukkonen has limited Fantasy appeal at this time.

Lasse Kukkonen, D, PHI

Lasse Kukkonen

Kukkonen gets first point of season

News: Flyers D Lasse Kukkonen picked up his first point of the season Tuesday when he assisted in a win over the Islanders.
Analysis: Kukkonen has been a healthy scratch more often than not this season, so he has no Fantasy value at this time.

2/11/2008

Lasse Kukkonen, D, PHI

Lasse Kukkonen

Flyers turn to D Kukkonen

News: The Sports Xchange reports with defenseman Braydon Coburn sitting out his first game of the season Sunday against the Penguins because of a torn ligament in his buttocks, Flyers coach John Stevens shuffled his defensive pairings. Lasse Kukkonen returned after sitting out 14 games and played alongside Jason Smith. Derian Hatcher, who had been playing well with Coburn, took on Randy Jones as his new partner. Stevens left alone the top pairing of Kimmo Timonen and Jim Vandermeer.
Analysis: Kukkonen did not record a point and finished at minus-1 Sunday. He has managed one goal, four assists in a plus-4 rating in 36 games this season. Kukkonen was more important to the Flyers last season when he played 74 games. He has little to no Fantasy value at this time.

Lasse Kukkonen, D, PHI Kukkonen fails to record point

Lasse Kukkonen

Kukkonen fails to record point

News: Flyers D Lasse Kukkonen failed to record a point in 17:33 of ice time Saturday against the Hurricanes and finished at even. It was the fifth straight game that Kukkonen has been held off the stat sheet.
Analysis: Kukkonen plays about 17 minutes per game, but is more valuabe to the Flyers as a penalty killer and fresh body. He has little to no Fantasy value at this time.

10/24/2007

Lasse Kukkonen, D, PHI

Lasse Kukkonen

Kukkonen finally on the board

News: C Jeff Carter and D Lasse Kukkonen each posted a goal, plus-1 rating and three shots on goal in Wednesday's game at Florida.
Analysis: Kukkonen broke a seven-game scoreless streak with the marker, although he has a respectable plus-7 rating to this point. He remains useful only in the deepest of Fantasy leagues. The Flyers are back in action Thursday night at Tampa Bay.

5/17/2007

Lasse Kukkonen, D, PHI

Lasse Kukkonen

Kukkonen re-signs with Flyers

News: Lasse Kukkonen agreed to a two-year contract with Philadelphia on Thursday, the third free agent the Flyers have signed in the last week.
Analysis: Kukkonen had five goals and 14 points in 74 games for the Flyers and the Chicago Blackhawks last season. The defenseman led all NHL rookies in blocked shots with 151. He'll have Fantasy value only in the deepest of leagues heading into the 2007-08 season.

Lasse Kukkonen, D, PHI

Lasse Kukkonen

Kukkonen makes Philly debut

News: Lasse Kukkonen was scoreless with a plus-1 rating in 17:40 of ice time in Tuesday's game at N.Y. Islanders in his debut with the Flyers.
Analysis: Kukkonen's Fantasy value is limited to the largest of leagues despite the team change.

2/26/2007

Lasse Kukkonen, D, PHI

Lasse Kukkonen

Kukkonen traded to Philadelphia

News: LW Kyle Calder, D Lasse Kukkonen and RW Jason Williams were involved in a three-way trade involving the Chicago Blackhawks, Detroit Red Wings and Philadelphia Flyers. Calder goes to the Red Wings, Kukkonen ends up with the Flyers and Williams moves to the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Kukkonen's Fantasy value will remain generally the same, and that means limited to the largest of leagues.

1/25/2007

Lasse Kukkonen, D, PHI

Lasse Kukkonen

Kukkonen second among 'Hawks D

News: Lasse Kukkonen has posted four goals, eight assists and a plus-6 rating with 28 penalty minutes through 41 games at the All-Star break.
Analysis: Kukkonen is second among Chicago defensemen in points, but he remains useful only in the largest of Fantasy leagues at this point.

1/11/2007

Lasse Kukkonen, D, PHI

Lasse Kukkonen

Kukkonen up to plus-7 rating

News: Blackhawks D Lasse Kukkonen has four goals, seven assists and a plus-7 rating on the 2006-07 season.
Analysis: Kukkonen has gotten his plus/minus rating as high as plus-9 this season and has not been below the zero threshold at all. He is just in his second year in the NHL, but remains a player to keep an eye on. He is best used in Fantasy leagues leagues that reward heavily for plus/minus ratings.

10/31/2006

Lasse Kukkonen, D, PHI Lasse Kukkonen held scoreless

Lasse Kukkonen

Lasse Kukkonen held scoreless

News: Kukkonen was scoreless with a minus-1 rating in 12:42 of ice time in Tuesday's game at N.Y. Islanders.
Analysis: After a hot start to the season, Kukkonen has gone scoreless in the past four games with a minus-2 rating. He had been highly coveted in CBS SportsLine.com Fantasy leagues recently, but that interest is likely to cool significantly.

Lasse Kukkonen, D, PHI Kukkonen lighting it up

Lasse Kukkonen

Kukkonen lighting it up

News: Lasse Kukkonen has managed two goals and three assists with a plus-1 rating over the past four games for the Chicago Blackhawks.
Analysis: Kukkonen has been flying off of the boards in CBS Sportsline.com Fantasy leagues lately, but be careful. He has never had more than 27 points in a season and that came with Karpat of the Finnish National League in 2005-06.
