Devils Place Olesz On Unconditional Waivers

News: The Devils placed Rostislav Olesz on unconditional waivers Wednesday, effectively terminating his contract, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: The decision was apparently mutual, and will give Rostislav Olesz the opportunity to play in Switzerland, so we may have seen the last of him in the NHL.

Devils' Olesz Clears Waivers

News: Rostislav Olesz cleared waivers Tuesday and was reassigned to AHL Albany, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: The 28-year-old had no goals and two assists in 1 games prior to being placed on waivers. New Jersey hasn't called up anybody in his place yet and may not have to if at least some of their injured players make it back to the ice Thursday against the Flyers.

News: Rostislav Olesz was placed on waivers by the Devils on Monday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.

Olesz Signs One-Year Deal With Devils

News: Rostislav Olesz signed a one-year deal with the Devils on Friday, the Globe and Mail reports.
Analysis: After being bought out by the Blackhawks, Rostislav Olesz cleared waivers on June 28 and will provide depth at the wing for New Jersey. Coming off of a knee injury, Olesz did not appear in an NHL game this season, but he scored 19 points in 14 games for Rockford of the AHL. In two years with the Blackhawks, Olesz played just six games.

Blackhawks' Olesz Clears Waivers

News: Rostislav Olesz cleared waivers Friday, TSN's Darren Dreger reports.
Analysis: The Blackhawks will carry forth and buyout Rostislav Olesz's contract on the same day the team celebrated the Stanley Cup victory with fans in Chicago. Olesz was waived in March and assigned to AHL Rockford, missing the entire 2012 season with a knee injury.

Hawks To Buy Out Olesz

News: The Blackhawks plan to buy out Rostislav Olesz, provided he clears waivers.
Analysis: Rostislav Olesz, who was bouncing back from a knee injury, didn't appear in an NHL game this past season, notching 19 points in 14 games for AHL Rockford. The No. 7 overall pick in the 2004 draft has recorded 132 points in 355 NHL games to date overall and will look for a fresh start after suiting up for just six games for the Blackhawks during his two-year stint with the club.

Chicago Assigns Olesz To AHL

Blackhawks Waive Olesz (Knee)

News: Rostislav Olesz (knee) was placed on waivers by the Blackhawks on Wednesday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
Analysis: Rostislav Olesz had been rehabbing at AHL Rockford of late and simply wasn't needed with the Blackhawks getting quality play from their forwards in their impressive start to the season. He'll remain at Rockford if he goes unclaimed.

Blackhawks' Olesz Resumes Skating

News: Rostislav Olesz (knee) has resumed skating at AHL Rockford, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Acquired from the Panthers in a trade for Brian Campbell in June 2011, Rostislav Olesz was a bust with the Blackhawks in his first five weeks with the team last season, earning a demotion to Rockford. After sustaining a serious knee injury in April, Olesz is just in the initial stages of getting back on the ice following the injury. Don't count on him becoming a contributor with the Blackhawks this season.

Blackhawks Assign Olesz To AHL Rockford

News: The Blackhawks assigned Rostislav Olesz to AHL Rockford on Thursday, according to the team's official website.
Analysis: Rostislav Olesz was not claimed on waivers, so he'll report to Rockford for the time being. Olesz appeared in just six games with the Blackhawks and did not record a point, but expect him to receive regular ice time with Rockford so the team can get an extended look at him.

Blackhawks Place Olesz On Waivers

News: The Blackhawks placed Rostislav Olesz on waivers Wednesday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
Analysis: Rostislav Olesz could not find his niche in Chicago after coming over in an offseason trade - he appeared in just six games and failed to record a point. Olesz figures to report to the AHL if he clears waivers, but there is a chance he gets claimed by another team willing to take a chance on the former first-rounder.

Hawks' Olesz Should Play Tuesday

News: Rostislav Olesz will likely play Tuesday against the Blues, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Analysis: There's not much here to get excited about as the Hawks won't be skating Rostislav Olesz on a scoring line.

Blackhawks' Olesz Skates For Hossa

News: Rostislav Olesz skated with a line of Patrick Kane and Daniel Carcillo at practice on Monday with Marian Hossa still out with an upper-body injury, Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Rostislav Olesz has been a healthy scratch for two games and has skated in two games including last Thursday's game against the Jets. He has one shot on goal in two games played. If Hossa can't go on Tuesday against the Coyotes, Olesz will probably get the call.

Panthers' Trade Olesz To Chicago Friday

News: Florida traded Olesz to Chicago on Friday in exchange for defenseman Brian Campbell.
Analysis: Olesz is young enough to still turn into a decent NHL player, but the key here is Chicago unloading Campbell and his $7.1 million per year contract for the next five seasons. Olesz has a $3.1 million per year contract for the next three seasons. Olesz's fantasy value is all but crushed with the deal. Chicago will use the four million dollars they saved with the deal to help re-sign Patrick Sharp.

Panthers' Olesz Done For Year

News: A source says Olesz (leg) is done for the year, TSN's Darren Dreger reports.
Analysis: Initial reports indicated the injury might be serious, and unfortunately for Olesz, that appears to be the case. He has six goals and 11 assists for Florida this season.

Panthers' Olesz Exits With Apparent Leg Injury

News: Olesz suffered an apparent leg injury in Friday's game and will not return, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: The extent of the injury is unknown, but the report says it was "ugly." Expect an update on Olesz's status once more details are released.

Florida's Olesz Gets Overtime Winner Friday

News: Olesz scored two minutes into the overtime frame to give Florida a 4-3 victory over New Jersey on Friday night.
Analysis: It was his fifth goal of the season and first game-winner. Olesz now has four points (2G, 2A) over his last five games, but remains a fantasy afterthought.

Olesz Ends Drought In Florida Win

News: Olesz registed a goal and an assist in Tuesday's win over the Rangers, also finishing a plus-3.
Analysis: Olesz ended a five-game points drought and had just three points since returning from injury on New Year's Eve. He's a role player on a team that has a track record of low scoring.

Olesz Should Return Friday For Panthers

News: Olesz (broken finger) should be back in the lineup Friday when the Panthers take on the Canadiens, the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Olesz is slated to skate on the fourth line with Shawn Matthias and Steve Bernier.

Panthers' Olesz Close To Return

News: Olesz (broken finger) will not play Monday, but is listed as probable for Friday's game against the Canadiens, the Sun-Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Olesz will get nearly an extra week's worth of rest if he sits out Monday's game and suits up Friday. The emergence of youngsters Evgency Dadanov and Bill Thomas has afforded coach Pete DeBoer the ability to be more cautious with the health of his veteran players.

Panthers' Olesz Still Out Monday

News: Coach Pete DeBoer said he will keep Olesz out of the Panthers' game against the Bruins Monday, the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: By sitting out Monday's game, Olesz gets almost a week of extra recovery time before the Panthers next game against the Canadiens on Friday. Olesz is still wearing a sleeve on his finger though, so he may not be ready for the game on Friday.

Panthers' Olesz Returns To Ice

News: Olesz (finger) participated in the Panthers' post-practice skate Tuesday, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Olesz was able to wear gloves and shoot pucks, which is a great sign considering his broken finger prevented him from gripping a stick. Coach Pete DeBoer has yet to announce when Olesz will be available to return to the lineup.

Panthers' Olesz (Finger) Close to Return

News: The cast on Olesz's finger has been removed as he awaits medical clearance to return, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Olesz has been out since November 18 and was expected to miss a few weeks with the injury. It sounds as if he could be skating early this week.

Panthers Place Olesz on IR

News: Olesz (finger) has been placed on IR, the Panthers' official site reports.
Analysis: The corresponding callup from the Panthers included a pair of blueliners to address a couple of injuries there, but Olesz will miss a couple of weeks with the injury anyway, so he'll be eligible to return from IR before he's healthy enough to actually do so.

Panthers' Olesz: Sidelined With Broken Finger

News: Olesz's broken finger is expected to keep him off the ice for a few weeks, the Sun-Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Olesz sustained the injury when he took a puck off his finger Nov. 19. He is not expected back on the ice until he can grip a stick again, which will likely sideline him for a couple of weeks.
