Blackhawks Deal AHL Player Winchester To Wild

News: Brad Winchester was traded to the Wild on Wednesday for defenseman Brian Connelly, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: It's just a minor deal between two teams trading spare parts in their organization. Brad Winchester, 32, had 30 points in 52 games for AHL Rockford. He'll report to the Wild's AHL affiliate in Iowa.

Hawks Send Winchester To Rockford

News: Brad Winchester cleared waivers and the Blackhawks assigned him to Rockford of the AHL on Wednesday, Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: The 32-year-old veteran spent all of last season with Milwaukee of the AHL after four years in the NHL with the Blues, Ducks and Sharks. If there are any injuries with the Hawks, they could dip down to Rockford and pluck out Brad Winchester if they need experience.

Hawks Sign Winchester To One-Year Deal

News: Brad Winchester signed a one-year contract with the Blackhawks on Wednesday, ESPN Chicago reports.
Analysis: After playing at least 19 games at the NHL level every year from 2004-2012, Brad Winchester spent all of last season in the AHL, posting 27 points (9G, 18A) and 66 penalty minutes in 37 games for the Milwaukee Admirals. The now 32-year-old winger will begin a new chapter with the Blackhawks, his seventh different team, though Winchester figures to serve mostly as depth down at AHL Rockford.

Calgary's Winchester Released

News: Brad Winchester was released from his professional tryout Thursday, the team's official Twitter account reports.
Analysis: The Flames have a glut of forwards at the moment, and Brad Winchester just didn't fit into their future plans.

Sharks' Winchester Could See Ice

News: Brad Winchester "took regular shifts" at practice Wednesday, TSN reports.
Analysis: Brad Winchester and Michal Handzus appear to have moved ahead of T.J. Galiardi and Dominic Moore in the lineup.

Sharks' Winchester Scores After Lineup Change

News: Brad Winchester scored his third goal of the season in the second period of San Jose's 5-2 win over Dallas on Thursday.
Analysis: Brad Winchester came through in his first game playing with Joe Thornton, despite only getting 13:21 of playing time. As long as he's playing where he is the point production should be up.

Sharks' Winchester Moved To Top Line

News: Brad Winchester will be joining teammates Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski on the top line, the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: Brad Winchester only has four points on the season although his ability to plant himself in front of the opposing goalie could prove to be valuable to the top line. Look for both his point production and ice time to go up with this move.

Sharks' Winchester Scores First Goal

News: Brad Winchester scored his first goal as a Shark Thursday night as the Sharks defeated the Red Wings 5-2.
Analysis: It was the first points for San Jose's fourth line since opening night. Brad Winchester also contributed with an assist for his third point of the season.

Sharks Sign Winchester To One-Year Deal

News: Brad Winchester was signed by the Sharks to a one-year contract Monday, the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: He's expected to work on the Sharks' fourth line, so there won't be significant opportunity to contribute in most leagues. Brad Winchester has generated points in less than 18 percent of 323 career games at the NHL level, meaning his history of production doesn't bode well for his fantasy prospects.

Winchester Impressing In San Jose

News: Brad Winchester has impressed with his pro tryout with the Sharks, Mark Emmons of the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: Brad Winchester is reportedly in contention for a roster spot on the fourth line in San Jose. But even if he ultimately earns a contract with the Sharks, Winchester's fantasy value will be negligible since he's generated points in less than 18 percent of 323 career games at the NHL level.

Winchester Leaves Early Thursday

News: Brad Winchester was knocked out by a punch from Vancouver forward Aaron Volpatti in Thursday's exhibition contest, the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: The report goes on to say that Brad Winchester could have returned to action, but Sharks coach Todd McLellan opted to keep him out of the game. Luckily the injury to Winchester is not considered serious, but it's still a tough blow for a guy trying to make a good impression and win a roster spot out of training camp.

Winchester Trying Out With San Jose

News: Brad Winchester will make an appearance in Sharks camp as a professional tryout, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
Analysis: Brad Winchester started last season with the Blues and ended with the Ducks. A second-round draft pick by the Oilers in 2000, Winchester has yet to play more than 64 games in a single season. Given the Sharks' organizational depth at forward, it's unlikely that he would assume a significant role in San Jose if he ultimately latches on with the club.

Ducks' Winchester Destined For First-Line Duty?

News: Winchester, who was traded to the Ducks from the Blues on Monday, could eventually be placed on the top line with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Winchester reportedly practiced on the fourth line with Kyle Chipchura and George Parros in his first practice as a Duck on Tuesday, but coach Randy Carlyle had this to say about the newcomer: "We think he's a guy that can move up and down on our left side," Carlyle said. "We feel that there's a necessity to have a bigger body playing with (Ryan) Getzlaf and Perry. It gives us the flexibility to move Bobby Ryan around." Winchester would likely see an uptick in fantasy value if he gets to play on the top line in Anaheim.

Anaheim Acquires Winchester

News: The Ducks have sent a third-round pick to St. Louis for Winchester, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie.
Analysis: Winchester, who turns 30 on Tuesday, has 14 points in 59 games this year and will likely assume a depth role on a Ducks team that is filling up on tough guys.

Winchester Collared In Blues' Home Loss

News: After behaving himself for four straight games, Winchester wasted no time before getting sent to the penalty box in St. Louis' game against Columbus on Saturday night. He tangled with the Blue Jackets' Derek Dorsett just 10 seconds after the puck dropped to start the contest.
Analysis: Winchester isn't among the truly elite enforcers in the league, but his 79 PIMs on the season place him in the top 25. He should blow by his previous career high of 108 PIMs, set just last season, before St. Patrick's Day.

Blues' Winchester Scores Again

News: Winchester scored for the third straight game in Monday's loss to the Coyotes. The goal gives him eight on the season, with four of those coming within the two weeks.
Analysis: He's not normally a goal-scoring threat, but it seems the net finder within him has been liberated since coach Davis Payne dropped Brad Boyes to the third line along with Winchester and Jay McClement. With injuries to three of their top-six forwards, the Blues need to find offense from atypical sources. And Winchester can be one of them. He's a big body who can hold his spot in front of the net, while getting regular duty on the power play.

Blues' Winchester: Goals In Two Straight

News: Winchester scored the Blues' only goal Saturday. He now has goals in back-to-back games.
Analysis: He's a difficult fantasy roll unless you're in sin bin leagues. But he is on pace for close to 20 points and 120 PIMs -- that may be worth the last spot on a big roster.

Blues' Winchester Finishes Off 'Hawks

News: Winchester scored his fifth goal of the season in the third period of St. Louis' 3-1 win over Chicago.
Analysis: Winchester fired a team-high eight shots on goal while administering three hits in 14:11 of ice time. The Blues have juggled their lines quite a bit this season, partially due to injury and partially due to a lack of scoring punch. Winchester has bounced around a bit, but now finds himself on the third line with Jay McClement and Brad Boyes.

Blues Promote Winchester

News: The Blues have Winchester skating on the second line with Patrik Berglund and Matt D'Agostini, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Winchester, who has two goals in the last three games, is more of the worker bee on the second line. He'll do the dirty work like going into corners, getting in front of the net and pushing defensemen back. Winchester isn't going to find the back of the net often but he will be skating more shifts including time on the second power-play unit.

Blues Get Winchester Involved

News: The Blues have upped Winchester's ice time and number of shifts the past two games, including time on St. Louis' second power-play unit. He averages 12.3 shifts per game and 7:42 of ice time this season, but has skated a combined 43 shifts (26:36) in the past two games.
Analysis: Winchester has scored two goals in the previous three games, including Saturday's game-winner over the Devils and a power-play marker against the Red Wings. He's been a fourth-line scrapper, who gets physical when the tone of the game dictates such behavior, but the Wisconsin native has been thrust into a bigger role due to injuries among the Blues' top-six forwards and the need to generate offense from any forward.

Winchester Returns to Blues

News: Winchester (knee) returned to the active lineup Monday night in St. Louis' loss to Colorado.
Analysis: Winchester was back on the fourth line and mixing it up with a fight and three hits in 8:23 of ice time.

Blues' Winchester Out Thursday

News: Winchester (knee) will not play Thursday against the Predators, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Just an FYI if you're in a deeper league where he might be of value to you. Winchester's injury still hasn't healed since he suffered it in a fight with Jamal Mayers last week.

Blues' Winchester Dealing With Knee Injury

News: Winchester is dealing with a knee contusion, but he is still expected to travel for Wednesday's game against the Blue Jackets, Lou Korac of the Alton Telegraph reports.
Analysis: Expect Winchester to be a game-time decision for Wednesday's contest.

Winchester picks up 17 PIM

News: Blues winger Brad Winchester picked up a season high for penalty minutes with 17 on Saturday during a 3-2 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets. Winchester picked up a five-minute fighting penalty in the second period and that was added to a two-minute instigating penalty and a 10-minute game misconduct.
Analysis: Winchester has 77 penalty minutes on the season but just six points. Winchester has marginal Fantasy appeal and is best used in Fantasy leagues that reward for hits.

Winchester picking up the hits

News: The Sports Xchange reports Blues LW Brad Winchester has moved into second place on the club in hits (108), surpassing D Roman Polak (105). Winchester has 42 hits in his last eight games, including nine against Columbus on Jan. 18.
Analysis: Winchester is at least doing something right after he has taken a big step back offensively in 2009-10. Winchester has marginal Fantasy appeal and is best used in Fantasy leagues that reward for hits.
