Coyotes' Chipchura Picks Up Assist In Loss

News: Kyle Chipchura picked up an assist Tuesday in a 3-2 loss to the Flames. He was plus-2 and added three hits and a blocked shot in the contest.
Analysis: Kyle Chipchura's season qualifies as a disappointment as he will fail to reach the 20-point plateau which he did last year and sits at a brutal minus-22 rating, but that's life in the desert this year. He has seen significantly more ice time with Arizona this year - 13:24 compared to 9:43 last season - as the Coyotes rebuild. As a result he has set career-highs in shots, hits, and PIM. Unfortunately, the influx of young talent that is expected to start next year may relegate Chipchura back to a lesser role or send him out of town.

Coyotes' Chipchura Adds Assist

News: Kyle Chipchura assisted on Jordan Szwarz's first-period goal in Thursday's overtime win over the Sabres.
Analysis: As the third-line center for the league's second-worst scoring attack, Kyle Chipchura presents very little in the form of fantasy value. The 29-year-old has 13 points and a minus-22 rating over 63 games this season.

Coyotes' Chipchura Gains Assist In Loss

News: Kyle Chipchura earned an assist in Monday's loss to the Avalanche.
Analysis: Kyle Chipchura has three goals on the season and only two points over his last 15 games. He's already passed through waivers unclaimed, so it's clear he's not a valued commodity around the league. Fantasy owners won't be of mind to scoop him up any time soon either.

Coyotes' Chipchura Breaks Drought

News: Kyle Chipchura tallied a goal and assist in Saturday's win over the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: The floodgates were open throughout the night against Sergei Bobrovsky, whose uncharacteristic struggles allowed Kyle Chipchura to take advantage. In so doing, the fourth-liner broke a five-game scoring drought, but it's unlikely to portend any sort of breakout. His limited even-strength minutes and absence of a role on the power play will make points an infrequent occurrence.

Coyotes' Chipchura Chips In Saturday

News: Kyle Chipchura contributed his second goal of the season in Saturday's loss to the Kings.
Analysis: Waived by the Coyotes earlier this month, Kyle Chipchura ended up sticking around with the team after going unclaimed and continues to see regular duty on the club's fourth line. It's not a role that will yield much production, so the Coyotes will consider it a bonus any time Chipchura provides offense. Fantasy players need not pay him much attention.

Coyotes Waive Chipchura

News: Kyle Chipchura was waived by the Coyotes on Friday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Analysis: It's not clear what motivated the Coyotes' decision to waive Kyle Chipchura, as the team already had an existing roster spot open to accommodate the impending return of David Moss (upper body) from injured reserve. Regardless, Chipchura will now be available to claim by any NHL team, though it wouldn't be surprising if he went untouched. The 28-year-old has three points and has gathered 23 PIM in 16 games this season.

Coyotes' Chipchura Scores First Of Season

News: Kyle Chipchura scored his first goal of the season Wednesday against Edmonton. He was plus-1 on the night.
Analysis: Kyle Chipchura was a healthy scratch for the Coyotes' first two games of the season, so it's nice to see him get in the action right away in his debut. The 28 year-old remains a bottom-six forward in Arizona, which limits his value to fantasy owners.

Coyotes' Chipchura Ejected Friday

News: Kyle Chipchura was ejected Friday for boarding San Jose's Logan Couture during the Coyotes' loss.
Analysis: At this time, Kyle Chipchura is not expected to receive a suspension for the hit, but it was a reckless play for the veteran. He is ready to assume his usual role as a defensive center and role player for the Coyotes this year.

Chipchura Scores During Loss Friday

News: Kyle Chipchura scored his fifth goal of the season during the Coyotes' 3-2 shootout loss to the Oilers on Friday.
Analysis: After a painfully quiet season, Kyle Chipchura now has five points in his last seven games and is looking to finish the season in style. The 28-year-old center has just 18 points over 78 games this season and while he's been productive lately, he's definitely not someone on whom to rely this late in the season.

Coyotes' Chipchura Chips In Two More Points

News: Kyle Chipchura notched his second two-point game in three contests Thursday, contributing a goal and an assist to a 3-2 shootout win in New Jersey.
Analysis: Kyle Chipchura scored Phoenix's first regulation goal and assisted on the second. As was the case on Monday in New York, he scored on his only shot of the game. With this effort, he's set a new career high in points, but don't get too excited -- it's just 17.

Two Points For Coyotes' Chipchura

News: Kyle Chipchura scored a goal on his only shot and added an assist in Monday's overtime loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: The goal -- just his third of the year and first since way back on Oct. 29 -- was a fluky one, as it went off the Rangers' Chris Kreider and into the net. But hey, they all count.

Coyotes' Chipchura Breaks Out Of Slump

News: Kyle Chipchura picked up two assists Thursday in a win over Montreal. He has three assists over his last three games after going without point since mid-January.
Analysis: Kyle Chipchura has collected 12 points on the year playing primarily on the Coyotes fourth line, although he moved up to replace Martin Hanzal Thursday and clicked with Radim Vrbata, setting up both of his goals.

Coyotes' Chipchura Pointless Over Last 10

News: Kyle Chipchura failed to score a point in any of his 10 games leading up to the Olympic break.
Analysis: The hit category tends to be a more relevant statistic for fourth-line production, and even by that measure, Kyle Chipchura has failed to provide much for the Coyotes. He's barely averaging over a hit per game, which isn't nearly enough to make up for the lack of scoring.

Chipchura Returns; Picks Up Assist

News: Kyle Chipchura (lower body) returned to the Coyotes' lineup Saturday after missing their previous game and notched an assist in a loss to Anaheim.
Analysis: It was only Kyle Chipchura's eighth point of the season as he continues to see fourth line minutes.

Coyotes' Chipchura Game-Time Decision Saturday

News: Kyle Chipchura (lower body) is available for Saturday's game against Anaheim, but will be a game-time decision according to the Arizona Republic's Sarah McLellan.
Analysis: If you would normally consider having Kyle Chipchura active, check back for his status closer to game time.

Coyotes' Chipchura Ruled Out Thursday

News: Kyle Chipchura is nursing a lower-body injury and will not play Thursday against the Wild, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: The Coyotes are listing Kyle Chipchura as day-to-day, so he may only be sidelined for one game with the injury. In any case, Tim Kennedy figures to rejoin the Phoenix lineup in his stead.

Coyotes' Chipchura Could Replace Doan

News: Kyle Chipchura skated in place of the injured Shane Doan at the Coyotes' practice Tuesday, according to the Coyotes' website.
Analysis: Kyle Chipchura would benefit from skating with Mike Ribeiro and David Moss, however, it is worth noting that Doan is listed only as day-to-day with a lower body injury. Stay on top of news ahead of Wednesday's game if you could benefit from a small boost from Chipchura.

Coyotes' Chipchura Pulls Off Gordie Howe Hat Trick

News: Kyle Chipchura scored a goal, assisted on another and got five for fighting -- the Gordie Howe hat trick -- in Tuesday's win over Los Angeles. He also went plus-2, laid a season-high five hits and won five of nine face-offs.
Analysis: Since scoring on Opening Day, Kyle Chipchura's been a drag to anyone who owns him in fantasy, as he failed to find the score sheet in the 11 games between Oct. 3 and Tuesday, going minus-8 in the process. This performance was nice to see from the former first-rounder, but we've learned better than to expect much offensive consistency here.

Chipchura Scores In Coyotes' Opener

News: Kyle Chipchura potted his first goal of the season Thursday in the Coyotes' opening night win over the Rangers.He was plus-1 and registered two shots on net in 9:56 of ice time.
Analysis: Kyle Chipchura is starting the year on the third line with Antoine Vermette and David Moss. Despite the goal Thursday, he is not likely to be a fantasy contributor in 2013-14.

Coyotes To Start Chipchura On Third Line

News: Kyle Chipchura will be on the Coyotes' third line with Antione Vermette and David Moss in Thursday's opener against the Rangers, according to the Coyotes' official website.
Analysis: It was rumoured that Kyle Chipchura might open the season on the fourth line, but he appears to have won this spot with Vermette and Moss over rookie Lucas Lessio. Chipchura has never scored more than six goals in a season and is more of a role player than fantasy contributor.

Coyotes' Chipchura Ticketed For Fourth Line

News: Kyle Chipchura is expected to center the Coyotes' fourth line this season, the Arizona Republic reports.

Coyotes' Chipchura Keeps Clicking

News: Kyle Chipchura continued his offensive onslaught with two assists during Monday's 5-4 shootout win during Anaheim.
Analysis: Kyle Chipchura may only have 10 points in 22 games with the Coyotes, but he's provided an undeniable spark in the offensive zone. It's worth noting that Chip was held off the scoresheet until Feb. 7. He's done all his damage over a 12-game span while averaging less than 13 minutes of ice time per game.

News: Kyle Chipchura added his second goal of the season in Saturday's 3-2 shootout loss in Edmonton.
