Kings' Sekera Out For Final Two Games

News: Andrej Sekera (lower body) will not play in the Kings' final two games of the regular season, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera hasn't been practicing with the team since suffering the injury last week Monday against the Blackhawks. Should the Kings qualify for the playoffs, it's far from guaranteed that Sekera would be able to suit up for any of their first-round games.

Kings' Sekera May Miss Rest of Regular Season

News: Andrej Sekera (lower body) is not expected to return to action during the regular season, Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: Assuming the report is accurate, Andrej Sekera will miss the Kings' final five regular season games due to a lower-body injury. L.A. will likely have to recall a defender from AHL Manchester in order to acquire some much needed depth at the blue line. Sekera will hope that the Kings can manage to secure a spot in the playoffs during his five-game absence.

Kings' Sekera Seems Unlikely To Play Thursday

News: Andrej Sekera (lower body) didn't practice Wednesday and seems unlikely to play Thursday against the Oilers, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Coach Darryl Sutter didn't fully divulge the extent of Andrej Sekera's injury, but seemed to suggest the Kings weren't counting on having him back within the next couple of days. Sekera will have a check-in with a doctor later Wednesday, which could better clarify a potential return timetable.

Kings' Sekera Sidelined

News: Andrej Sekera is sidelined with a lower-body injury, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: While there's no timetable for a potential return for Andrej Sekera, it's safe to rule him out for Thursday's game against the Oilers. As a result, Alec Martinez skated with Robyn Regehr at practice Wednesday, while Brayden McNabb was paired with Matt Greene.

Kings' Sekera Suffers Lower-Body Injury

News: Andrej Sekera suffered a lower-body injury in the second period of Monday's game against the Blackhawks, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera said he sustained the injury when another player fell on his leg during the contest. The extent of Sekera's setback is uncertain, but more will be known about his status after he is examined by team doctors Tuesday.

Andrej Sekera

Sekera Nabs First Goal With Kings

News: Andrej Sekera registered his first goal in 12 games with the Kings in Monday's 3-1 win over the Devils.
Analysis: One of the more high-profile names moved prior to the trade deadline, Andrej Sekera has largely been a disappointment for the Kings, mustering only three points since arriving in late February. His minutes and shot attempts have been on the rise over the last handful of contests, but he's not yet producing to the point of warranting ownership outside of mid-sized or deeper formats. It's probably advisable to let him sit on the wire until he starts providing assists with more regularity.

Andrej Sekera

Kings' Sekera Records First Point With Team

News: Andrej Sekera recorded an assist in Tuesday's win over the Avalanche, giving him his first point as a member of the Kings.
Analysis: It took six games for Andrej Sekera to find the scoresheet. The blueliner was expected to provide an offensive lift to the Kings' blue line while Slava Voynov (suspension) and Alec Martinez (concussion) remained unavailable, but that hasn't happened thus far. As a byproduct of his lack of impact, Sekera has failed to see more than 20 minutes of ice time since his debut Feb. 27.

Kings' Sekera To Debut Friday

News: Andrej Sekera will debut with the Kings on Friday against the Ducks, Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera wasn't ready to dress for his new team Thursday, but it appears Friday is the destination date. Through 57 games this season with the Hurricanes, the blueliner has just two goals and 17 assists with a minus-7 rating. However, the jump to a much more potent squad in Los Angeles should allow owners to reap the benefits down the stretch.

Andrej Sekera

Kings' Sekera Out Thursday

News: Andrej Sekera (coach's decision) won't play Thursday against the Senators, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera was acquired by the Kings on Wednesday, but it appears his debut with the club won't come Thursday. While he will likely take a spot among the top-four defensemen with the Kings, his fantasy relevance among blueliners is about average thus far. A move from the Hurricanes to the Kings should provide more opportunities to notch assists, however, and it should help increase his rating over the remainder of the season. With the news, Sekera's debut will likely come Friday against the Ducks.

Kings' Sekera: Status Undecided For Thursday

News: Andrej Sekera has passed his physical, but still appears to be a game-time decision for Thursday's game against the Senators, Jon Rosen of the LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera, who was traded to the Kings on Wednesday, wasn't able to make it to Los Angeles in time for the team's morning skate. It's not clear if coach Darryl Sutter would be willing to throw Sekera into the fire without first practicing with the team, so it wouldn't be a surprise if he was made a healthy scratch Thursday. Once he gets acclimated with his new surroundings, Sekera should assume a top-four spot on defense for the Kings.

Kings Acquire Sekera From Hurricanes

News: Andrej Sekera was traded to the Kings from the Hurricanes on Wednesday in return for a first-round pick and prospect Roland McKeown, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: The Kings have been looking for help on the blue line with Slava Voynov (suspension) likely out for the season and Alec Martinez (concussion) out since early February. The 28-year-old Andrej Sekera would seem to fit the bill. He has 19 points in 57 games and should slot in to one of the team's top two defensive pairings, which should provide a boost in his point production for fantasy owners.

Hurricanes' Sekera Collects Two Points In Win

News: Andrej Sekera scored a goal and added a helper in Saturday's win over the Sharks.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera is putting together a decent season in Carolina, tallying 18 points (two goals) in 50 games. While the points are somewhat there, Sekera has just two goals on the year, a far cry from the 11 he potted in 2013-14. He logs heavy minutes with youngster Justin Faulk on the top pairing, though, and the two blueliners make up one of the more dangerous defensive tandems in the game.

Carolina's Sekera Tallies Assist In Loss

News: Andrej Sekera assisted on a goal in Tuesday's overtime loss to the Ducks.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera has been a major letdown after submitting a career-best 44 points in 2013-14. In addition to not scoring a goal since Dec. 18, Sekera has collected just two points over his last 15 games. Those outside of deeper leagues waiting for Sekera to heat up can probably cut bait without too much hesitation at this point.

Canes' Sekera Struggling On Offense

News: Andrej Sekera was held pointless in Saturday's 5-4 shootout loss to St. Louis. He now has zero points in his last seven games and just two assists in his last 10.
Analysis: Following his career-high, 44-point season last year, Andrej Sekera was thought by many to be an emerging offensive force from the blue line. However, he has regressed badly this year, and with just 14 points in 40 games, he is not even on pace to crack this 30-point mark this season. He continues to see 20+ minutes per night on the Canes' top defensive pairing opposite Justin Faulk, but unless he somehow catches fire in the second half of the season, he will not repeat last year's success, making him a hard guy to recommend for fantasy purposes. Avoid using him if you can.

Canes' Sekera Breaks Through

News: Andrej Sekera scored his first goal of the season on a third-period power play and also chipped in a shorthanded assist Thursday against Toronto.
Analysis: All of a sudden, after a horrific start to the year, Andrej Sekera's come alive a bit, with four points in his last four games. It's hard to say whether he'll be able to keep it up and improve his stats to something vaguely resembling last year's breakout, but Sekera at least seems to be on the right track.

Canes Sekera (Undisclosed) Will Play Sunday

News: Andrej Sekera will play Sunday against the Red Wings, Michael Smith of the Canes' official site reports.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera missed Thursday's game with the undisclosed injury, but it wasn't considered serious. He will return Sunday, taking the place of Jay Harrison in the lineup.

Hurricanes' Sekera Out Thursday

News: Andrej Sekera (undisclosed) will not play Thursday against the Capitals, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' website reports.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera's injury is not considered serious, but the Hurricanes will hold him out Thursday to get some additional rest. The team hopes he will be able to return to action either Sunday or Monday. He suffered the injury late in Tuesday's game on a blocked shot.

Canes' Sekera Skips Practice With Injury

News: Andrej Sekera missed Wednesday's practice due to an injury sustained in Tuesday's win over the Predators, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera blocked a shot late in Tuesday's game that is still causing him some pain, so he'll take a therapy day. The Hurricanes are hoping the rest will be sufficient enough for him to return to action Thursday versus the Capitals.

Canes' Sekera Assists In Win Over Stars

News: Andrej Sekera added an assist - just his seventh point of the season - during Tuesday's 6-4 win over Dallas.
Analysis: After registering a career-high 44 points last season, Andrej Sekera has taken a step back this year, currently on pace for just 30-35 points. There was much talk coming into this season about whether last year's production was an aberration, and thus far, that looks to be the case. Bottom line, you should not be counting on Sekera as one of your first tier fantasy defensemen, outside of very deep leagues.

Canes' Sekera Picks Up Assist

News: Andrej Sekera added an assist in Tuesday's 4-2 victory over the Blue Jackets in 24:22 total ice time.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera has yet to find the back of the net himself this season after last year's personal best of 11, but he's now racked up five assists in ten games. Holding down the first defensive pairing with teammate Justin Faulk, the assist opportunities should continue to be there.

Hurricanes' Sekera To Play Tuesday

News: Andrej Sekera (upper body) will play in Tuesday's game against the Jets, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' website reports.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera missed the Hurricanes' last game due to the setback, but he will return to action after making it through Tuesday's morning skate without issue. Expect him to be part of the Hurricanes' top defensive pairing moving forward.

Canes' Sekera Practices Friday

News: Andrej Sekera (upper body) practiced Friday.
Analysis: The extent of Andrej Sekera's involvement in practice isn't known, but with the Hurricanes' next game still four days away, it looks like there's a realistic chance he'll only miss one contest due to the upper-body injury. The team will monitor his progress in practices the next few days before determining his availability for Tuesday's game against the Jets.

Hurricanes' Sekera To Sit Out Thursday

News: Andrej Sekera (upper body) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Rangers, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Two days after suffering a nasty collision with the end boards, Andrej Sekera was on the ice for morning skate, but was apparently too sore for the Hurricanes to risk playing him Thursday. On a positive note, Sekera appears to have escaped serious injury, save for a few bumps and bruises. After Thursday's match, the Hurricanes won't play again until Oct. 21, which could afford Sekera enough recovery time before returning to the lineup.

Hurricanes' Sekera Not Ruled Out For Thursday

News: Though Andrej Sekera (upper body) wasn't able to practice Wednesday, coach Bill Peters hasn't ruled him out for Thursday's game against the Rangers, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera was cleared of any structural damage to his shoulder when he collided with the end boards Tuesday night, but Peters noted that while fairly close to a return, the defenseman is still "very sore." It seems more likely than not that the Hurricanes would hold Sekera out Thursday with a long break in their schedule to come thereafter, but the news is nonetheless encouraging for the blueliner, who looked to be at serious risk of a long-term absence.

X-Rays Negative For Carolina's Sekera

News: Coach Bill Peters said that X-rays performed on Andrej Sekera after Tuesday's game came back negative, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: While it appears Andrej Sekera was able to avoid structural damage to his body after colliding with the end boards in the first period of the loss to the Sabres, the blueliner's head and shoulder still absorbed significant impact. As a result, Sekera could face further evaluation for a concussion over the next several hours, putting his status for Thursday's game against the Rangers in peril.
