Coyotes' Brule Has Contract Terminated

News: Gilbert Brule cleared waivers Tuesday and will officially have his contract terminated by the Coyotes, TSN's Darren Dreger reports.
Analysis: Though just 26 years old, Gilbert Brule has indicated a desire to retire from hockey, and the Coyotes will grant that wish. If this is indeed his swan song in the NHL, he finishes his career with 95 points and 156 penalty minutes in 299 career games.

Coyotes Release Brule

News: Gilbert Brule was released by the Coyotes on Saturday, Ren Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Analysis: After the forward declined to report to AHL Portland last Sunday, the organization decided to wash its hands of Gilbert Brule altogether, waiving and then releasing him. He'll look to land on his feet with a new club, but would probably have to prove himself in the minors first before getting another NHL chance.

Coyotes' Brule Suspended For Failing To Report

News: Gilbert Brule has been suspended by the Coyotes for failing to report to AHL Portland after being assigned there Sunday, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: Gilbert Brule was sent to the minors after failing to secure a roster spot in his three-week stint with the Coyotes, but he doesn't seem interested in playing in the AHL. His next step is uncertain at this point.

Gilbert Brule

Coyotes' Brule Sent To AHL

News: Gilbert Brule was re-assigned to AHL Portland on Sunday.
Analysis: Gilbert Brule has seen only occasional playing time since his Dec. 10 recall, and clearly the Coyotes feel he's better off in Portland than merely watching from the press box.

Coyotes Recall Brule

News: Gilbert Brule was recalled from AHL Portland on Tuesday.
Analysis: Gilbert Brule potted seven goals and added five assists in his 11 games with Portland this season. He took part in line rushes during morning skate Tuesday and could be used later in the night for the Coyotes' game against the Avalanche.

Coyotes Sign Brule on Saturday

News: Gilbert Brule signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Coyotes on Saturday, Sarah McLellan of AZ Central Sports reports.
Analysis: Gilbert Brule played in 33 games for the Coyotes during the 2011-12 season and headed to the Swiss League after not being offered a contract following the year. He's a low-risk option for the Coyotes right now and will start his return off in Portland of the AHL.

Former First-Rounder Brule Cut By Swiss League

News: Gilbert Brule has been cut by his Swiss league team, reports NBCSports.com.
Analysis: Oh boy -- who's going to take a chance on a guy cut from the Swiss league? Maybe his 15 minutes of fame ended after picking up a hitchhiking Bono last year.

Coyotes Do Not Extend Offer To Brule

News: Gilbert Brule did not receive a qualifying offer from the Coyotes, Sarah McLellan of azcentral.com reports.
Analysis: Gilbert Brule will now become an unrestricted free agent come July 1st. Last season, Brule recorded 19 points in 33 regular season games and three in 12 playoff games.

Brule Tallies, But Phoenix Drops OT Thriller

News: Gilbert Brule was the only Phoenix skater to find nylon in Saturday's 2-1 Game 5 loss to Chicago. It's the first playoff point of his NHL career.
Analysis: He has yet to demonstrate the kind of offensive prowess that would lead us to recommend him to you. He had just 14 points in an injury-shortened campaign.

Coyotes' Brule A Game-Time Decision Saturday

News: Gilbert Brule (head) is a game-time decision for Saturday's game against Columbus, Dave Vest reports.
Analysis: Gilbert Brule has not played since February 21st and is unlikely to see more than 10-12 minutes of ice time if he plays.

Coyotes' Brule Close To Return

News: Gilbert Brule (head) is the closest of all the injured Coyotes to returning, but coach Dave Tippett said he won't return Thursday against Calgary.
Analysis: The Coyotes are slowly starting to get healthy again, which makes their 11-0-1 rampage through the month of February all the more impressive. Gilbert Brule's next opportunity to return is March 3 at home against Columbus.

Coyotes' Brule Skating Again

News: Gilbert Brule (head) has worked out for the past two days, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: Though the Coyotes have not provided specifics about Gilbert Brule's injury, the widespread belief was that he had sustained a concussion. That Brule is back on the ice less than a week after the injury occurred is a great sign that his injury isn't as serious as it was initially perceived to be.

Coyotes Without Brule Thursday

News: Gilbert Brule (unspecified issue) will not play Thursday against the Flames, the Tuscon Citizen reports.
Analysis: Gilbert Brule was injured late in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Kings. "Hopefully, it's not a long-term thing (and) he can get back in the lineup because he's been a pretty good player for us," coach Dave Tippett said of Brule. "He's been a little spark plug." Brule has notched seven points in 17 games since joining the Coyotes.

Brule's Assists Carry Coyotes Over Hawks

News: Gilbert Brule was credited with two assists in Phoenix's 3-0 whitewashing of the fading Blackhawks on Saturday. He finished the contest with a plus-2 rating.
Analysis: With 13 games in the books in his abbreviated season, he has three markers and four helpers. Those points are basically found money for the Coyotes, since he was claimed off the waiver wire, but he's still a marginal fantasy player in most reasonably deep leagues.

Coyotes' Brule Notches Third Goal

News: Gilbert Brule scored his third goal in seven games with Phoenix in a 3-2 win over Ottawa on Tuesday.
Analysis: There's little doubt that Gilbert Brule has been a surprising source of offense for the Coyotes since being picked up off waivers. With four points in seven games, it may not be a bad idea to pick him up and see if he can continue his inspired play after the All-Star break.

Coyotes Get Another Goal From Brule

News: Gilbert Brule had another goal in Thursday's shootout loss to the Red Wings.
Analysis: In a small sample with the Coyotes, Gilbert Brule is showing some signs that he may work out with his new team. He has three points in his last three games.

Brule Impresses For Coyotes

News: Gilbert Brule tallied a goal and an assist during Monday's 6-1 win over the Avalanche.
Analysis: Gilbert Brule is off to a nice start in Phoenix since being claimed off waivers from Edmonton on Jan. 10. Any player who can light an offensive spark under the Coyotes is a welcome sight in the desert, though take a wait-and-see approach when considering Brule for fantasy purposes as he carves out his role with his new team.

Brule Claimed By Phoenix

News: The Coyotes claimed Gilbert Brule off re-entry waivers Tuesday, Coyotes.NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Gilbert Brule hasn't made an NHL appearance this year and has just 18 points (eight goals) in 27 AHL showings, so he's unlikely to make a fantasy impact for Phoenix.

Oilers' Recall Brule From AHL

News: Gilbert Brule was recalled from Oklahoma City of the AHL on Monday, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: Gilbert Brule was one of several reserves called up as the Oilers are suffering through a rash of injuries at this point in time. Brule has to clear re-entry waivers before joining Edmonton, but that shouldn't be much of a problem.

Oilers Send Brule To AHL

News: Gilbert Brule has been placed on waivers to send him to AHL Oklahoma, Jeff Marek of SportsNet reports.
Analysis: Gilbert Brule has been seeing a sports psychologist this offseason and apparently the Oilers didn't feel he was ready to play for the big club. He is in the last year of a two-year, $1.85 million deal.

Oilers' Brule Sees Sports Psychologist

News: Gilbert Brule has been seeing a sports psychologist quite often this off-season, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: Gilbert Brule is trying to find answers as to why his play has deteriorated over the past couple of seasons. He believes part of those reasons are because he thinks to much about "what he should have done" after games. A sports psychologist has worked for other players, perhaps it can him to.

Brule's Health Scuttles Trade Between Oil and Kings

News: Brule (head) was part of a potential deal that would have seen him head to the Kings in exchange for Ryan Smyth but the Kings balked at the last second because of concerns about his health, reports TSN.ca.
Analysis: It gets even worse for the former first-rounder because even if he'd gone to L.A., he would have been bought out of his contract and been a free man. Ouch. Brule had a brilliant junior career but was rushed to the NHL far too soon by an over-eager Columbus team and the damage done to his psyche and career was significant. His once prodigious offense has disappeared and he has struggled to carve a niche as a third- and fourth-liner.

Oilers' Brule Picks Up An Unlikely Hitchhiker

News: Brule picked up a pair of hitchhikers while driving in Vancouver on Tuesday, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: We normally wouldn't recommend picking up a hitchhiker, but when that person is U2 frontman Bono we will make an exception. While traveling to a park to walk his dog, Brule passed the lead singer and after realizing exactly who it was, turned around and went back. Sure enough Bono and his assistant were looking for a ride after they got caught in a rain storm. As a thank you for the assist, Bono gave Brule and his girlfriend back stage passes to his show in Edmonton. Things like this just never happen to me.

Oilers' Brule Out Tuesday

News: Brule (undisclosed injury) will not play Tuesday against the Canucks, Dan Tencer of 630 CHED reports.
Analysis: Brule left Saturday's game after the first period with an injury that is still undisclosed. Consider him day-to-day.

Oilers' Brule Absent Monday

News: Brule (undisclosed) did not skate with the team Monday, the team's official Twitter reports.
Analysis: There's no official word yet on what's troubling Brule, but consider him questionable for Tuesday's game against the Canucks.
