Franson Draws Free Agent Interest

News: Though Cody Franson remains unsigned, the blueliner indicated Tuesday that he's in contact with a number of teams, sportsnet.ca reports. "There's probably five or six teams we're talking to. There are some very interested ones, but some teams are in cap situations and all the rest that comes with it," Franson noted Tuesday. "Everything is just kind of slowly rolling."
Analysis: Cody Franson, who is coming off three consecutive one-year deals, is hoping to ink a long-tern contract this time around, though apparently there is nothing imminent on that front. The 27-year-old notched seven goals and 36 points over 78 games between Toronto and Nashville this past season and at this juncture, the 6-foot-5 blueliner remains one of the top talents remaining in free agency.

Analysis: As expected, Cody Franson will return to the Predator's lineup on Friday against the Blackhawks. He'll likely return to his spot on the team's third defensive pairing. Franson has tallied one goal and three assists in 23 games with Nashville this season.

Predators' Franson (Upper Body) Expects To Play

News: Cody Franson (upper body) expects to play Friday against the Blackhawks, Kristopher Martel of FOX Sports reports.
Analysis: Cody Franson sat out Wednesday's opener due to the undisclosed upper body injury, but he told reporters Friday that he anticipates playing in Friday's Game 2. He'll likely return to his spot on the third defensive pairing.

Preds' Franson Will Miss Game 1

News: Cody Franson (upper body) will sit out Wednesday's playoff opener against the Blackhawks, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Cody Franson was present for Wednesday's morning skate, but remained on the ice for extra work after the regulars departed. The 27-year-old, who contributed only one goal and four points in his 23 games with Predators after being acquired in a Feb. 15 trade, will be replaced on the third defensive pairing by Anton Volchenkov. Franson is still being regarded as day-to-day.

Preds' Franson Remains Day-To-Day

News: Cody Franson (upper body) did not practice Monday, The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Cody Franson thus remains in the day-to-day category as Wednesday's playoff opener against Chicago approaches.

Preds' Franson Day-To-Day

News: Cody Franson (upper body) is considered day-to-day, according to Brooks Bratten of NHL.com.
Analysis: While we suspect that Cody Franson will be ready for the Preds' playoff opener, with just four points in 23 games with the team since being acquired from Toronto, he's only an option in deeper postseason formats.

Preds' Franson To Miss Season Finale

News: Cody Franson (upper body) won't play in Saturday's game against the Stars, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: The Predators will rest three defensemen (Cody Franson, Shea Weber, and Roman Josi) with injuries Saturday, though all are believed to be minor. Since the team has already secured its playoff spot, Franson seems to have been ruled out of Saturday's meaningless season finale for maintenance-related reasons more than anything else. He's expected to be ready to play for Game 1 of the postseason.

Preds' Franson Dealing With Upper-Body Injury

News: Cody Franson missed Friday's practice due to an upper-body injury.
Analysis: The blueliner more than likely sustained the injury in Thursday's loss to the Wild. Cody Franson's status looks to be in doubt for Saturday's regular-season finale against the Stars, but the Predators should provide clarity on the situation during morning skate.

Franson Scores First Goal As A Predator

News: Cody Franson tallied his first goal as a member of the Predators in Tuesday's loss to the Canucks.
Analysis: After producing six goals and 32 points across 55 games with the Maple Leafs before being acquired by the Predators in mid-February, Cody Franson has been a non-factor during his time in Nashville. It took him 20 games to find twine, and he's only managed three assists while seeing his average time on ice drop below 16 minutes with the Predators. Feel free to drop him in favor of a more productive defenseman with the regular season winding down.

Franson Struggling To Fit In With Predators

News: Cody Franson recorded an assist in Monday's win over the Coyotes, giving him three points in 10 games with the Predators.
Analysis: Cody Franson hasn't quite had the impact the Predators were expecting after acquiring him from the Maple Leafs in mid-February. While some decline in his role could have been anticipated due to the Preds' depth on defense, Franson has still seen his ice time fall below 15 minutes on three occasions already with his new team. Now that Ryan Ellis seems to be healthy following a bout with a lower-body injury, Franson's minutes count may only diminish further.

Franson Assists In Preds' Win Over Sabres

News: Cody Franson earned his first point back in a Preds' uniform Sunday, assisting on Mike Ribeiro's third-period power-play goal in a 2-1 shootout win over the Sabres.
Analysis: Now on his second tour of duty in Nashville, Cody Franson didn't take long to start contributing with his new (old) team. Against the Sabres, he saw ice time of 19:22, including a whopping 6:23 on the power play. With the Preds' big guns Shea Weber and Roman Josi eating up most of the top blue line minutes, Franson should still continue to see decent ice time playing the second pairing alongside Mattias Ekholm.

Franson Meets Up With Predators

News: Cody Franson (immigration issues) met the Predators for their practice in Philadelphia on Friday.
Analysis: Cody Franson, who was acquired by the Predators in last Sunday's trade with the Maple Leafs, had been forced to miss his new team's past two games while awaiting his immigration paperwork to process. Now that it appears that issue has been resolved, Franson looks on track to make his team debut Saturday against the Flyers.

Predators' Franson Out Again Thursday

News: Cody Franson (immigration issues) will not play Thursday against the Islanders.
Analysis: Both Cody Franson and Mike Santorelli, who were acquired from the Maple Leafs on Sunday, will sit for the second straight game due to their paperwork for immigration not being properly processed. Poor weather in the Northeast the last few days has not helped matters on that front, but the issue figures to be resolved in the near future. Still, it's uncertain if both players will be in the fold for the next game of the Preds' road trip Saturday in Philadelphia.

Predators Debut To Wait For Franson

News: Cody Franson probably won't be available for Tuesday's game against the Sharks due to paperwork issues, The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: According to the Preds' official site, both Cody Franson and forward Mike Santorelli are iffy for Tuesday's game, as the two newcomers still have immigration issues to be worked out before they can suit up for the team. Expect those matters to be sorted out prior to Thursday's game against the Islanders.

Leafs Send Franson To Nashville

News: Cody Franson was traded from the Maple Leafs to the Predators on Sunday.
Analysis: Cody Franson was the biggest name attached to a four-player trade Sunday between the two clubs, as he has now been moved to a playoff team for what essentially could be rental on the Predators' side as they chase a possible Stanley Cup. The blueliner has totaled 32 points in 55 games this season with the Maple Leafs, but will join be joining a more talented team in Nashville. It's possible that his ice time will drop slightly, but his addition to a better team could lead to more assists moving forward.

Leafs' Franson Will Play Saturday

News: Cody Franson (hip) will play Saturday against the Oilers, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.
Analysis: Cody Franson didn't take part in pregame line rushes, and there was some speculation that he would be forced to sit due to a hip issue. Apparently, Franson will be fine to play after all, though it's always possible he could see less than the 21-plus minutes he averages.

Leafs' Franson Helps Out, Gets 10 PIM

News: Cody Franson recorded a power-play assist and 10 PIM in Monday's win over the Hurricanes.
Analysis: With offense as scarce as it is these days for the Maple Leafs, picking up penalty minutes is about the only way Toronto skaters can maintain their fantasy value these days. Cody Franson certainly hasn't been immune to the Leafs' evaporating offense, as Monday's assist marked his first point in four games. Even so, he's still been one of the team's more effective performers in January, notching a goal and four assists over nine games.

Leafs' Franson Collects Two Helpers Friday

News: Cody Franson collected a pair of assists in Friday's win over the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: Cody Franson is having himself quite the season. The 27-year-old blueliner now has six points (one goal) in his last seven games, giving him 27 points (six goals) in 40 games on the season. He has appeared on the scoresheet in eight of his last 13 outings and has had six multi-point games this season -- seventh-most among NHL defensemen. Playing on Toronto's' top defensive pairing and first power-play unit with Dion Phaneuf, Franson is a must-start every game.

Toronto's Franson Continuing To Put Up Points

News: Cody Franson's assist Wednesday night gives him 25 points in 39 games. He is just eight points from tying his career mark from last season (33 points in 79 games).
Analysis: He's made massive shifts in his two-way game, not only in terms of points, but also in plus-minus -- he's sitting at plus-3 after finishing last year at minus-20. You probably got him cheap on draft day. Wring every penny out of him.

Leafs' Franson On Pace For 50-Point Season

News: Cody Franson picked up a power-play assist in Sunday's loss to Florida. He now has 22 points on the season and remains on pace to deliver a 50-point season.
Analysis: Can you say money in the bank? Cody Franson will be a free agent at season's end yet again and he'll command a hefty salary for his current body of work. And as a defender, he's just entering his prime (age 27). Use him well. There should be a couple more seasons like this in him.

Leafs' Franson Gets Another Assist

News: Cody Franson picked up his 20th point of the season Thursday when he tallied an assist in a 4-1 loss to the Hurricanes.
Analysis: He's scoring and playing very physical hockey -- he has 90 hits in 30 games this season. Just beware that shooting percentage -- it's sitting at 10.4 percent, but his career mark is 6.1. There will be some regression, but he'll still deliver solid numbers for fantasy owners going forward.

Leafs' Franson: Goal And Assist In Win

News: Cody Franson picked up his first points in six games in Sunday's shootout win over Los Angeles. He scored a goal and added an assist. The helper came on the power play.
Analysis: He also delivered seven hits and five blocked shots. His 19 points lead all Leafs' blueliners.

Leafs' Franson: Streak Now Stands At Eight Games

News: Cody Franson stretched his point streak to eight games and 10 points after he delivered an assist in Tuesday's 9-2 loss to Nashville. Remarkably, he was one of just four Toronto players to finish with an even (or better) rating on the game.
Analysis: It wasn't like he only played a few shifts -- he was out there for almost 18 minutes. His streak (two goals, eight assists) is just about as good as it gets this season. Use him well.

Leafs' Franson Riding Seven-Game Streak

News: Cody Franson's point streak stands at seven games and nine points, including seven assists, after he picked up an assist in Saturday's loss to Buffalo.
Analysis: Wow -- that makes 12 points in 16 games. Test the trade waters immediately. He can't keep up this pace and he's not a 50-point defender. But a Leaf fan in your league might think he's the second-coming of Borje Salming.

Toronto's Franson On Five-Game Streak

News: Cody Franson's two assists Wednesday stretch his current point streak to five games and seven points, including six assists.
Analysis: He has 10 points in 14 games and has been surprisingly productive this season. He's also blocking shots and laying hits, so he has multi-categorical value.
