Lightning's Mikkelson Sitting Monday

News: Brendan Mikkelson will not play Monday against the Penguins, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: The 25-year-old defenseman was recalled Feb. 27, and he's played in both of the Lightning's games since then, but he'll park it Monday, presumably as a healthy scratch.

Lightning's Mikkelson (Upper Body) Cleared To Play Tuesday

News: Brendan Mikkelson (upper body) is available Tuesday against the Flyers, the St. Petersburg Times reports.
Analysis: Brendan Mikkelson had a nasty collision into the end boards Tuesday but has been back on the ice the last few days and appears ready to go. He's been lightly used by the Lightning in any case, appearing in just one game prior to his injury.

Bolts' Mikkelson Back On Ice After Freak Accident

News: Mikkelsson (undisclosed) skated briefly Saturday morning, just two days after a frightening crash into the end boards during practice Thursday that sent him to hospital, reports the Tampa Bay Times.
Analysis: Nice to see him back on the ice, but it's not known when he'll suit up for the Bolts. He's only played in one game this season and has been a healthy scratch otherwise.

Lightning's Mikkelson Leaves Practice With Upper Body Injury

News: Brendan Mikkelson left practice with an upper body injury and was taken to the hospital after falling into the board during Thursday's practice, the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: After making contact with the board, Brendan Mikkelson lay on the ice for several minutes before exiting under his own power, though he looked dazed while walking to the locker room. He then left the building in a gurney and was released from the hospital shortly thereafter. Consider him day-to-day going for the time being, but he likely would have been a healthy scratch for the Lightning in any case.

Lightning's Mikkelson Playing in Sweden

News: Brendan Mikkelson signed with Vasteras HK of Sweden on Tuesday, the Tampa Tribune reports.

Bolts' Mikkelson Scores First NHL Goal

News: Brendan Mikkelson scored the first goal of his NHL career in Saturday's loss to St. Louis.
Analysis: It has taken 116 games, all played in spot duty over the last four seasons, to hit that mark. He's not known for his offensive acumen and this doesn't change things. Nice milestone, though.

Lightning's Mikkelson Past Flu

News: Brendan Mikkelson, who missed Tuesday's game against Montreal with the flu, has been a plus-1 in each of the Lightning's two games since then, a pair of 4-3 wins Friday and Saturday.
Analysis: Brendan Mikkelson has just two points -- both of which came Feb. 16 -- in 24 games thus far, which underscores his minimal fantasy utility.

2/28/2012

Brendan Mikkelson, D, PIT

Brendan Mikkelson

Tampa's Mikkelson Questionable With Flu

News: Brendan Mikkelson (flu) is questionable for Tuesday's game against Montreal, Tampa Tribune writer Erik Erlendsson reports.
Analysis: Nate Thompson and Henry Purcell both caught the bug, too. It's not clear how bad any of the three have it.

1/7/2012

Brendan Mikkelson, D, PIT

Brendan Mikkelson

Mikkelson Should Play For Tampa

News: Brendan Mikkelson should be in uniform when Tampa Bay plays Montreal on Saturday, Tampa Tribune writer Erik Erlendsson reports.
Analysis: Brendan Mikkelson still is unlikely to emerge as a fantasy factor in Tampa Bay, however.

Brendan Mikkelson, D, PIT

Brendan Mikkelson

Bolts Acquire Mikkelson From Flames

News: Brendan Mikkelson has been traded to the Lighting, reports the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Analysis: The Bolts need help on the back end and Brendan Mikkelson will provide depth, nothing more. He wasn't able to crack the Flames' blue line even after they suffered a few injuries.

9/27/2011

Brendan Mikkelson, D, PIT

Brendan Mikkelson

Calgary's Mikkelson Sent Down

News: Brendan Mikkelson was assigned to Calgary's AHL squad Monday, according to the Calgary Herald.
Analysis: Brendan Mikkelson spent a little time in the top six defensemen for Calgary in 2010-11, but is unlikely to crack the group much this season.

Brendan Mikkelson, D, PIT

Brendan Mikkelson

Flames Preserve Services of Mikkelson

News: The Flames have signed Mikkelson to a one-year, two-way contract, according to the Calgary Herald.
Analysis: Mikkelson, who joined the Flames after being waived by the Ducks last October, reportedly will make $721,900 for service time in the NHL this season. A strong skater, Mikkelson is likely to assume a depth role within the Flames' organization.

Brendan Mikkelson, D, PIT

Brendan Mikkelson

Flames' Mikkelson Sent To AHL For Conditioning

News: The Flames have assigned Mikkelson to AHL Abbotsford for conditioning, the Calgary Herald reports.
Analysis: Mikkelson hasn't seen NHL ice time in about a month, and even when he was playing on a semi-regular basis, the 23-year-old rearguard managed only two points -- both assists -- in 20 games.

Brendan Mikkelson

Mikkelson Joins Flames' Top Six Defensemen

News: Mikkelson replaced Steve Staios in the Flames blueliner rotation in Friday's win over the Blue Jackets, 12 minutes of ice time. He'll likely remain ahead of Staios for now, the Calgary Herald reports.
Analysis: This despite ending up with no shots and a minus-1 on a night when the team won 6-2. "I thought he was solid," coach Brent Sutter said. "I just mentioned to the coaches, you can tell where he's come from. If there isn't a stick-to-stick play in his own zone, he just gets pucks out. That's the type of team Anaheim is. Those are smart plays. I thought he was solid. I thought he was fine. There's just a couple of things with our systems that he needs to adjust too and adapt too."

Mikkelson Claimed by Flames

News: The Flames claimed Mikkelson off waivers Tuesday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
Analysis: The Flames opened up a roster spot by sending T.J. Brodie to Abbotsford of the AHL. Mikkelson will likely serve as a depth defenseman for the Flames.

Brendan Mikkelson, D, PIT

Brendan Mikkelson

Mikkelson Waived by Ducks

News: Mikkelson was placed on waivers by the Ducks on Monday, the LA Times reports.
Analysis: If Mikkelson clears waivers, the defenseman will likely be assigned to AHL Syracuse on Tuesday.

Brendan Mikkelson

Mikeelson Makes Ducks' Roster

News: Mikkelson has found his way onto the Ducks' roster, according the Orange County Register.
Analysis: Mikkelson had two assists in three preseason games for the Ducks, which included a pretty pass on Ryan Getzlaf's goal Sunday night. If Mikkelson doesn't realize the Ducks' expectations for him, he could be squeezed from the lineup when Toni Lydman (double vision) returns to the team.

2/25/2010

Brendan Mikkelson, D, PIT

Brendan Mikkelson

Ducks call up four from minors

News: The Ducks have recalled D Brett Festerling, D Brendan Mikkelson, RW Dan Sexton and G Timo Pielmeier from the minors.
Analysis: Apart from Sexton, who is a decent prospect, the rest of these players are pretty much just organizational depth and are likely only up to increase the numbers at practice until the Olympics are over. Continue to ignore them in Fantasy play.

Brendan Mikkelson, D, PIT

Brendan Mikkelson

Festerling up, Mikkelson down for Ducks

News: The Ducks have re-assigned D Brendan Mikkelson to the AHL and recalled D Brett Festerling.
Analysis: Both of these guys are just basically organizational depth with Anaheim and have no Fantasy value at this time.

10/11/2009

Brendan Mikkelson, D, PIT Mikkelson back up with Ducks

Brendan Mikkelson

Mikkelson back up with Ducks

News: The Ducks recalled defenseman Brendan Mikkelson from Toronto of the AHL on Sunday. Mikkelson's recall comes after defenseman James Wisniewski suffered a sprained right shoulder late in Saturday's game at Philadelphia. He is listed as week-to-week.
Analysis: Mikkelson has one assist in two games with the Marlies this season. The 2005 second-round pick had two assists in 34 games with the Ducks last season. Mikkelson will likely see regular minutes for Anaheim, but he won't make the impact of Wisniewski. He has marginal Fantasy appeal.
