  • Rangers Place Lombardi On Unconditional Waivers

    News: Matthew Lombardi was placed on unconditional waivers Friday for the purpose of his release, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
    Analysis: After failing to win a roster spot with the Rangers in training camp, Matthew Lombardi refused his assignment to AHL Hartford and is electing to pursue free agency. It's highly likely he'll head back to Switzerland, where he shined for Geneve Servette during the 2013-14 campaign.
  • Rangers Place Lombardi On Waivers

    News: The Rangers waived Matthew Lombardi on Sunday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
    Analysis: Matthew Lombardi spent last season in the Swiss-A league where he scored 20 goals and 30 assists in 46 games. If he is not claimed he will report to AHL Hartford. The Rangers are already thin at center so if there are anymore injuries at the position, Lombardi could see some time with New York. Otherwise, he won't have a big fantasy impact this year.
  • Rangers' Lombardi Returns To Practice

    News: Matthew Lombardi (groin) took part in Thursday's practice, Newsday's Steve Zipay reports.
    Analysis: Matthew Lombardi has been held out since injuring his groin Sunday, but it appears he is feeling good enough to return to practice, and the setback should not prevent him from being ready for Opening Night.
  • Rangers' Lombardi Dealing With Groin Injury

    News: Matthew Lombardi suffered a groin injury at Sunday's practice and won't be available for at least the next two preseason games, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.
    Analysis: The Rangers were already in a bind at center with Derek Stepan likely out until late October with a fractured fibula, and Matthew Lombardi's injury will only further test the team's depth. Lombardi wasn't having an especially strong training camp, and the injury could effectively take him out of the running to fill the opening in the top six. Opportunity knocks for young forwards Oscar Lindberg, J.T. Miller and Kevin Hayes.
  • Rangers Agree To Terms With Lombardi

    News: Matthew Lombardi agreed to terms with the Rangers on Wednesday.
    Analysis: Matthew Lombardi played with the Swiss team Geneve-Servette of the National League A last season, recording 20 goals and 30 assists in 46 games.

    Analysis: A veteran of 536 NHL games, Matthew Lombardi spent time with the Ducks and Coyotes last season, scoring eight points in 28 appearances. He could possibly find a fourth-line spot with an NHL squad, but will have much better job security in Switzerland.
  • Ducks Scratch Lombardi

    News: Matthew Lombardi was a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against Los Angeles.
    Analysis: In four gamnes since he was acquired from Phoenix, he has yet to find his way onto a score sheet. The last time he had meaningful fantasy value was three seasons ago. He should be nowhere near your active roster right now.
  • Coyotes Trade Lombardi To Anaheim

    News: Matthew Lombardi has been traded to Anaheim for Brandon McMillan, ESPN's Pierre LeBrun reports.
    Analysis: Matthew Lombardi has struggled through 21 games in his second stint with Phoenix, totaling just eight points. The Ducks will probably slot him in on the third or fourth line to start, though if he can show flashes of the 53-point Lombardi from three years ago, he could move up.
