Blackhaws Recall Toivonen

News: The Blackhawks recalled Toivonen from AHL Rockford on Monday, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Toivonen will provide goaltending depth for the Blackhawks during the playoffs.

Blackhawks Send Down Toivonen

News: Toivonen has been sent back down to Rockford of the AHL, according to the Blackhawks' Official Twitter Feed.
Analysis: It was a short-term call-up, as Corey Crawford just had a case of the flu. With Crawford playing so well this season and veteran Marty Turco behind him, there seems little chance (barring injury) that Toivonen will see much NHL action in 2010-11.

Blackhawks Recall Toivonen

News: The Blackhawks recalled Toivonen from AHL Rockford on Sunday, the Chicago Daily Herald reports.
Analysis: Corey Crawford has the flu and will not be able to play Sunday against Columbus, so Toivonen will serve as Marty Turco's backup.

Blackhawks Assign Toivonen to AHL

News: The Blackhawks assigned Toivonen to AHL Rockford on Saturday, the Chicago Sun-Times' Adam Jahns reports.
Analysis: Marty Turco and Corey Crawford will handle the goaltending duties for Chicago this season, with Toivonen available to be recalled if the need arises.

Blues, Blackhawks make minor deal

News: The Blackhawks have acquired G Hannu Toivonen and D Danny Richmond from the Blues in exchange for G Joe Fallon and D Daryl Boyle.
Analysis: Toivonen, the 29th overall pick in 2002, has a 2.73 GAA and a .906 save percentage in 26 AHL games this season, while Fallon has a 2.64 GAA and .912 goals against average. Toivonen has 61 NHL games under his belt, while the 24-year-old Fallon has yet to appear in an NHL contest. Richmond, a 25-year-old agitator, has played in 49 NHL games, but none since 2007-08. Like Fallon, Boyle has yet to reach the big leagues. All of these guys are just organizational depth for now and have no Fantasy value.

Hannu Toivonen

Toivonen signs new deal with Blues

News: Goalie Hannu Toivonen has come back to the NHL. After spending one year playing in Finland, Toivonen signed a contract with the Blues Thursday. St. Louis was the last team Toivonen played for in 2007-08 before leaving for Finland. Terms of the deal were not discussed.
Analysis: The 25-year-old Toivonen played in 52 games last season with Ilves Tampere of the Finnish SM-liiga, posting a 19-23-9 record along with a 2.68 goals against average and three shutouts. The 6-2, 200-pound goaltender has played in 61 National Hockey League games, recording an 18-24-10 record, one shutout and a 3.37 goals against average. The Blues already have Chris Mason and Ty Conklin in net, so Toivonen is just insurance in case something happens. He should not be drafted in Fantasy.

Hannu Toivonen, G, CHI Toivonen heads to home country

Hannu Toivonen

Toivonen heads to home country

News: Free agent goalie Hannu Toivonen signed a contract with Ilves Tampere of the Finnish SM-liiga (Finland). He was a three-year NHL veteran.
Analysis: The Finnish goalie starter his career in the SM-liiga and now heads back after three disappointing campaigns in the NHL. He started out with a bright future with the Bruins, but once he failed in two seasons there, he was shipped to St. Louis. Toivonen was 6-10-5 with a 3.44 GAA and .878 save percentage in a backup role with the Blues. There is no need to hang onto him in Fantasy leagues.

Hannu Toivonen, G, CHI Toivonen squanders away win

Hannu Toivonen

Toivonen squanders away win

News: Blues goalie Manny Legace stopped all eight shots he faced in the opening period Tuesday against the Predators as St. Louis built a 3-0 lead, but then was replaced by Hannu Toivonen at the beginning of the second after sustaining a hip flexor. It went all downhill for the Blues after that. Toivonen allowed the Predators to tie the game at three late in the third period and then lost the game in overtime when Rich Peverley scored on a wrister at 1:43. Toivonen made 14 saves in the loss.
Analysis: Toivonen is now winless in his last six outings (0-5-1). He was pretty much handed a win Tuesday and somehow blew the game. He once had a bright future with Boston, but is now nothing more than a flier in leagues that use average points per game.

3/24/2008

Hannu Toivonen, G, CHI Toivonen still winless since December

Hannu Toivonen

Toivonen still winless since December

News: Blues backup G Hannu Toivonen continued to struggle Sunday as he lost 4-3 in overtime to the Blackhawks to remain winless since Dec. 7. He made 27 saves in defeat.
Analysis: Toivonen has been brutal in a reserve role with the Blues this season, as he owns a 3.51 goals against average and an .872 save percentage. If you own this guy on your team in a non-keeper format, you need to quit playing Fantasy Hockey immediately. You should also not be using the Blues TG except in deeper leagues.

3/20/2008

Hannu Toivonen, G, CHI

Hannu Toivonen

Toivonen takes another loss

News: Hannu Toivonen stopped all nine shots in the third period, but the three goals allowed in the first two periods proved costly as the St. Louis Blues lost 3-2 to the Ottawa Senators. The Blues hadn't played in Ottawa since a 3-1 loss on Feb. 10, 2004. St. Louis is 1-6-1 on its season-high, nine-game road trip, that ends Sunday in Chicago.
Analysis: Toivonen has lost all three of his starts in March. He has made just seven appearances since January and his GAA has been 3.51. That should speak plenty of his Fantasy value --very little. He once had a bright future with Boston, but is now nothing more than a flier in leagues that use average points per game.

3/15/2008

Hannu Toivonen, G, CHI Sharks devour Hannu Toivonen

Hannu Toivonen

Sharks devour Hannu Toivonen

News: The Sharks scored past Hannu Toivonen just 1:10 into Friday's game against the Blues and it was all downhill from there for the netmineder. He allowed four first period goals and that's all the Sharks needed in a 4-1 win. Toivonen, who made 23 saves, has lost his last four decisions, and three straight outings since Feb. 9.
Analysis: Toivonen is 0-2-0 in two March outings with a GAA of 4.20. He has made just six appearances since January and his GAA has been well over 4.00. That should speak plenty of his Fantasy value -- very little. He once had a bright future with Boston, but is now nothing more than a flier in leagues that use average points per game.

3/11/2008

Hannu Toivonen, G, CHI Toivonen loses in relief outing

Hannu Toivonen

Toivonen loses in relief outing

News: Blues G Manny Legace lasted just one period during Monday's 7-3 loss to the Flames before being replaced by Hannu Toivonen in the second period. Legace allowed three goals on 11 shots. Toivonen, who took the loss, allowed three goals on 18 shots and the Flames capped the scoring with an empty-net goal.
Analysis: Toivonen saw his first action in a month Monday because Legace has been pretty solid in net. Toivonen is now winless in his nine appearances dating back to Dec. 7. He once had a bright future with Boston, but is now nothing more than a flier in leagues that use average points per game.

2/9/2008

Hannu Toivonen, G, CHI

Hannu Toivonen

Toivonen shaky in rare start

News: Blues backup goaltender Hannu Toivonen hadn't played in the previous seven games, and he had a shaky outing, giving up four goals on 15 shots before he was replaced in the second period by Manny Legace. Toivonen made five tough stops in the first four minutes, but Brenden Morrow's sharp-angle shot from low in the right circle got between the goalie and the left post at 5:02 of the first period.
Analysis: Toivonen is just a No. 3 Fantasy goalie or someone to use in leagues that have average points per game in a scoring period until further notice.

1/19/2008

Hannu Toivonen, G, CHI

Hannu Toivonen

Toivonen plays game in relief

News: St. Louis Blues goaltender Hannu Toivonen played the last 24:54 minutes Saturday after replacing Manny Legace. He allowed one goal on 12 shots in the 5-2 loss to Nashville.
Analysis: Toivonen, 23, played in two games with Peoria this week after being assigned on January 14. He posted a 2-0-0 record, including a 2.00 goals against average along with a .918 save percentage. Toivonen remains just a No. 3 Fantasy goalie or someone to use in leagues that have average points per game in a scoring period until further notice.

Hannu Toivonen

Blues bring back Toivonen from minors

News: St. Louis Blues recalled goaltender Hannu Toivonen and forward Mike Glumac from the Peoria Rivermen of the AHL. In addition, the team has assigned goaltender Marek Schwarz to the Rivermen.
Analysis: Toivonen, 23, played in two games with Peoria this week after being assigned on January 14. He posted a 2-0-0 record, including a 2.00 goals against average along with a .918 save percentage. Glumac has played in 41 games this season with the Rivermen and ranks third on the club with 32 points (13 goals, 19 assists).

Hannu Toivonen

Toivonen sent down, Schwarz called up

News: The St. Louis Blues assigned G Hannu Toivonen to the Peoria Rivermen of the American Hockey League on Monday to get some playing time, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Marek Schwarz was called up to take his place.
Analysis: Toivonen wasn't playing much lately, with Manny Legace suddenly playing at an All-Star level, so the Blues would clearly rather him get some playing time than sit on a bench. Hold onto him for now if you have the roster space, as he will likely be back and we all know Legace might not play this hot forever.

1/11/2008

Hannu Toivonen, G, CHI

Hannu Toivonen

Toivonen peppered with six goals

News: St. Louis G Hannu Toivonen was bombarded with 37 shots and gave up six goals in Friday's 6-4 loss at Columbus. Toivonen is now winless in his last six games.
Analysis: Toivonen remains just a No. 3 Fantasy goalie or someone to use in leagues that have average points per game in a scoring period until further notice.

1/3/2008

Hannu Toivonen, G, CHI

Hannu Toivonen

Toivonen makes 18 saves in relief

News: Blues G Manny Legace was removed from Wednesday's game against the Oilers following the first period because of an undisclosed head injury. Legace was hit on the head with a puck during pregame warm-ups. He survived the three shots he faced in the first period before giving way to Hannu Toivonen, who eventually lost the game 3-2 in overtime. He made 18 saves in relief of Legace.
Analysis: Toivonen is now winless in his last four appearances and has recorded an overtime decision in three of those contests. The Blues hope that Legace is not out for the long period because relying on Toivonen is risky. He remains just a No. 3 Fantasy goalie or someone to use in leagues that have average points per game in a scoring period until further notice.

12/30/2007

Hannu Toivonen, G, CHI

Hannu Toivonen

Toivonen's winless streak now at four

News: Blues G Hannu Toivonen allowed four goals on 26 shots Saturday as St. Louis wasted a Paul Kariya hat trick in a 5-4 overtime loss to Dallas.
Analysis: Toivonen relieved Manny Legace on Wednesday and obviously did enough to deserve another start on Saturday night. Unfortunately it ended up in another loss for the Finn, who is now 5-4-2 on the season. Toivonen might get a start in Fantasy Week 14 (Dec. 31-Jan. 6), but since no one can be sure about that, he is a very risky No. 2 Fantasy goalie start for that period. Consider the Blues TG a low-end No. 2 choice.

Hannu Toivonen

Toivonen helps out in relief

News: Blues G Hannu Toivonen relieved Manny Legace midway through the second period of St. Louis' 5-0 loss to the Red Wings on Wednesday night. Toivonen stopped 10 of the 11 shots he faced.
Analysis: Toivonen was great in five starts spanning the last two weeks in November and the first week of December, winning four of those games, but has since lost two in a row and has allowed 13 goals in his last two and a half games. Neither Blues goalie is an advisable start in Fantasy Week 14, with games against Detroit, Edmonton and Carolina.

Hannu Toivonen

Toivonen can't win in shootout

News: Hannu Toivonen, who made 25 saves after giving up eight of the Avalanche's nine goals two days earlier, allowed four goals in regulation and one shootout goal in a loss to Edmonton Tuesday.
Analysis: Manny Legace (knee) is due back in the lineup soon and that will make Toivonen once again a No. 3 Fantasy goalie or flier in leagues that use average points per game. The Blues TG is a No. 2 Fantasy option with Legace in net.

12/10/2007

Hannu Toivonen, G, CHI Toivonen gets detroyed in loss

Hannu Toivonen

Toivonen gets detroyed in loss

News: St. Louis goalie Hannu Toivonen faced only eight shots in the first period but was blitzed in the second period during Sunday's 9-5 loss to the Avalanche. He allowed the five goals on 15 shots and was replaced by Marek Schwarz to start the third period. Toivonen returned at 3:05 of the third period after Doug Weight scored his seventh goal 24 seconds into the third. "We didn't give Hannu a lot of help back there, and the game was back in reach, so we wanted to show him that we still believe in him," Blues head coach Andy Murray said. Schwarz made three saves and allowed one goal in 10:43 of ice time.
Analysis: Toivonen had a real off night by allowing eight goals and making just 17 saves. It doesn't instill the kind of confidence he needs to keep earning starts. Manny Legace (knee) is due back in the lineup soon and that will make Toivonen once again a No. 3 Fantasy goalie or flier in leagues that use average points per game. The Blues TG is a No. 2 Fantasy option with Legace in net.

12/8/2007

Hannu Toivonen, G, CHI Toivonen temporarily No. 1 goalie

Hannu Toivonen

Toivonen temporarily No. 1 goalie

News: Blues G Hannu Toivonen, making his first start since Manny Legace went on IR Thursday because of a knee injury, turned aside 25 shots during a 4-3 win against the Oilers on Friday. Toivonen is 2-1-0 in three consecutive starts and has won four of his last five outings.
Analysis: Toivonen is now the man in net for the Blues until Legace is ready to take his rightful place in net. Treat Toivonen as a No. 3 Fantasy goalie or someone to use in leagues that have average points per game in a scoring period until further notice. The Blues TG remains a No. 2 Fantasy option.

12/5/2007

Hannu Toivonen, G, CHI

Hannu Toivonen

Toivonen loses as emerg. starter

News: Calgary's Dustin Boyd banked a shot off Hannu Toivonen, whose 34 saves weren't enough to prevent Calgary from beating the St. Louis Blues 3-1 Tuesday. It was a bad break for Toivonen who was otherwise spectacular in the middle period as Calgary outshot St. Louis 20-2. "It sucks, it really does, but it's gone now, there's nothing you can about it, you have to learn from it and see what I can do better next time," Toivonen said.
Analysis: Toivonen, who finished with 34 saves, got the call to start when Manny Legace hurt his knee during the pregame warmup.. As a result of Legace's injury, the Blues had no backup goaltender on the bench. When Legace is healthy, Toivonen is nothing more than a low-end No. 3 Fantasy goalie or someone to use in leagues that have average points per game in a scoring period. But if Legace is out for any time, Toivonen becomes someone to consider in a No. 2 goalie spot.

12/1/2007

Hannu Toivonen, G, CHI Toivonen holds on for 3-1 win

Hannu Toivonen

Toivonen holds on for 3-1 win

News: Hannu Toivonen stopped 17 shots in the St. Louis Blues' 3-1 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday. Toivonen's best save of the night came on a one-timer in the slot by the Blackhawks' Martin Havlat with 16 minutes remaining. Toivonen, who improved to 4-2 on the season, also made key stops in the third period on Robert Lang twice and Patrick Sharp. Toivonen snagged Lang's wrister with 1:33 to play from just right of the slot.
Analysis: Toivonen has won his last three starts while allowing a total of four goals and making 77 saves. However, Manny Legace has been pretty outstanding in net and keeping Toivonen out of net. Toivonen is nothing more than a low-end No. 3 Fantasy goalie or someone to use in leagues that have average points per game in a scoring period. The Blues TG is more of a high-end Fantasy option.
