Mashinter signed a one-year contract with Chicago on Thursday. Mashinter recorded a paltry five points on the year, despite suiting up in 41 NHL games. Despite his limited production, the Hawks seem to believe he was worth extending a new one-year deal, although fantasy owners will want to consider dropping him from their rosters, if they even had him in the first place.
Mashinter (illness) will return to action Wednesday against the Blues, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports. Fantasy owners don't need to concern themselves with Mashinter's availability, as the big-bodied winger has tallied just four points (three goals, one assists) in 33 games this season. He'll slot back into the lineup as a bottom-six forward Wednesday against St. Louis.
Mashinter (illness) will not dress for Sunday's game against the Red Wings, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports. The winger skipped out on practice Saturday because of the illness, and it appears a night's rest didn't do enough for him. Richard Panik should draw into the lineup in his place, but even when Mashinter is healthy, his role as a bottom-six forward averaging less than 10 minutes of ice time per game doesn't really make him much of a fantasy prospect. The illness shouldn't hold him out long, so it wouldn't be surprising if the 27-year-old rejoins the lineup for the team's next game Wednesday against the Blues.
Mashinter didn't practice Saturday due to an illness, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports. Mashinter's absence at practice Saturday leaves his status for Sunday's matchup with the Red Wings in doubt. Expect an update on the big-bodied winger's status ahead of puck drop Sunday evening.
Mashinter was recalled by the Blackhawks on Monday. Mashinter's last NHL action came with the Rangers in 2013-14 when he went without a point in six games. He's collected seven points through the first 12 games for AHL Rockford so far this season, and it has earned him a promotion to the NHL squad. The 27-year-old winger has appeared in 23 total NHL games over the course of his career, but has yet to notch a point. He could make his season debut with the Blackhawks as soon as Thursday against the Devils.
