Blue Jackets Ink Byers To NHL/AHL Contract

News: The Blue Jackets have signed Byers to a one-year, two-way contract, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Byers, who was drafted in 2004 by the Rangers, has appeared in just six NHL games to date. Last season, he played for three different minor league teams, including AHL Hartford/Connecticut, Springfield and San Antonio. He's a decent scorer who will give the Jackets some extra depth on the left wing, though the two-way aspect of his contract makes it so that he can continue to polish his game in the minors.

Dane Byers

Byers Sent To San Antonio

News: Byers was sent to San Antonio on Tuesday, according to the team's website.
Analysis: Byers was acquired in the trade with Rostislav Klesla that sent Sami Lepisto and Scottie Upshall to the Blue Jackets. This season he has recorded 34 points (12G 22A) and 120 PIMs in 64 games with Hartford and Springfield. His career numbers include 81 goals and 106 assists in 297 AHL games over the course of six seasons. It is unlikely that he will break the Coyotes' roster but with possible moves that might involve Brett Maclean the Rampage will need him for depth.

Dane Byers

Byers Traded to Blue Jackets

News: Byers was traded to the Blue Jackets on Thursday.
Analysis: Chad Kolarik was sent to the Rangers, but it's unlikely that either player will make a significant impact with their new club.

Dane Byers

Rangers summon Parenteau, assign Byers

News: The Rangers have recalled C P.A. Parenteau from the AHL and assigned LW Dane Byers.
Analysis: Both of these guys are nothing but organizational depth at this point and can be ignored in all formats.

Dane Byers, LW, WAS

Dane Byers

Byers returns from suspension

News: Rangers LW Dane Byers returned from his one-game suspension in Saturday's loss to the Flames. Byers managed just 5:42 of ice time.
Analysis: Byers was just called up from the AHL last week and is basically just organizational depth. Continue to ignore him in Fantasy play.

Dane Byers

Byers suspended one game for instigating

News: The NHL has suspended Rangers LW Dane Byers for receiving an instigator penalty in Tuesday's loss to the Canucks.

Dane Byers

Rangers call up Byers from AHL

News: The Rangers have recalled LW Dane Byers from the AHL.
Analysis: Byers is a second-round pick from 2004 that has played in just one NHL game. He is merely organizational depth and can be ignored in Fantasy.

Dane Byers, LW, WAS

Dane Byers

Byers sticking with the Rangers

News: The Rangers re-signed forward Dane Byers Friday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Analysis: The 23-year-old Byers has skated in 165 career regular season games with the Hartford Wolf Pack of the AHL, registering 44 goals and 58 assists for 102 points, along with 421 penalty minutes. He has played just one career NHL game and that was back in 2007-08. Byers is merely organizational depth and can be ignored in Fantasy.

2/7/2008

Dane Byers, LW, WAS

Dane Byers

Moore up, Byers down for Rangers

News: The Rangers called up RW Greg Moore from the AHL on Wednesday and sent down LW Dane Byers.
Analysis: This is the fourth time Moore has been called up this season, and he has zero points in five games. He has no Fantasy value. Byers was only up for one game, tallying no points in a loss to the Kings on Tuesday.

9/25/2006

Dane Byers, LW, WAS

Dane Byers

Rangers pare down their roster

News: The New York Rangers reassigned F Zdenek Bahensky, F Dane Byers, F Ryan Callahan, D Ryan Constant, D Marvin Degon, D Mike Gabinet, F Bruce Graham, F Mike Hoffman, G Chris Holt, F Hugh Jessiman, F Rick Kozak, D Bryce Lampman, F Francis Lessard, D David Liffiton, F Jakub Petruzalek, D Hannu Pikkarainen, D Corey Potter, D Dale Purinton, D Jake Taylor, F Craig Weller and G Alex Westlund to Hartford of the AHL on Monday
Analysis: With the exception of Jessiman and Lampman, who are worth a look in long-term keeper leagues, none of the players mentioned above are useful from a Fantasy perspective. Purinton might be worth consideration if he is recalled, but only in larger leagues which heavily reward penalty minutes.
