      Hurricanes' Tim Gleason: Signs PTO with Hurricanes

      Gleason signed a professional tryout contract with the Hurricanes on Wednesday. With Ryan Murphy day-to-day with a concussion, and James Wisniewski likely out for the season with a torn ACL, the Hurricanes could benefit from some additional depth at defense. Gleason will have an opportunity to audition for a spot on Carolina's 23-man roster in practice over the next week or so. The 32-year-old blueliner tallied nine points (one goal, eight assists) in 72 NHL games last season.

    • Capitals' Gleason Practicing Tuesday

      News: Tim Gleason (undisclosed) is practicing Tuesday morning, CSN Mid-Atlantic's Chuck Gormley reports.
      Analysis: Tim Gleason dealt with an undisclosed injury earlier in the Eastern Conference Semifinals, and while he's yet to miss a game in the series, he was limited to just 8:10 of ice time in Sunday's Game 6 loss. The Capitals then recalled Nate Schmidt from AHL Hershey on an emergency basis, but it now appears Gleason will likely play in Wednesday's Game 7 against the Rangers. He logged 12-to-15 minutes of ice time in each of the series' first five games.
    • Caps' Gleason Will Play Monday

      News: Coach Barry Trotz said Tim Gleason (undisclosed) will not be in danger of missing Monday's Game 3 against the Rangers, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
      Analysis: The Capitals recalled Nate Schmidt from AHL Hershey on Sunday as insurance in the event Tim Gleason was unavailable, but it appears the move was strictly precautionary. Look for Gleason to see around 15 minutes of ice time on the Capitals' third defensive pairing.
    • Caps' Gleason Expected To Play Monday

      News: Though Tim Gleason missed a portion of practice on Sunday with an unspecified issue, he is expected to play against the Rangers on Monday, NHL.com reports.
      Analysis: "We have a little bit of a situation [with Tim Gleason], but it's minor," coach Barry Trotz noted. "We're just going to be cautious on it." While it sounds as though Gleason will be a go in Monday's Game 3, the Caps recalled fellow defenseman Nate Schmidt in the event that there is a change in Gleason's status.
    • Caps' Gleason Good To Go Monday

      News: Tim Gleason had a check-up with the trainers Sunday, but expects to be good to go Monday against the Rangers, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
      Analysis: Tim Gleason is apparently dealing with a minor injury, however it does not appear to be too severe at this time. He entered practice late Sunday, so expect him to be ready to go Monday night.
    • Caps' Gleason Will Play Thursday

      News: Tim Gleason (elbow) will return to the lineup Thursday against the Devils.
      Analysis: Tim Gleason missed two games due to the elbow injury. He'll be plugged back in on the Caps' third pairing next to Mike Green.
    • Caps' Gleason (Elbow) Expected To Return Thursday

      News: Tim Gleason (elbow) practiced as part of the third defensive pairing Monday and is expected to return to the lineup Thursday against the Devils, the Washington Post reports.
      Analysis: Tim Gleason missed the last two contests because of the elbow issue, but an extended period between games looks to have provided enough of a window for his return Thursday. However, he hasn't been officially confirmed at this point, so it's worth monitoring to make sure nothing comes about in the next few days to derail his return.
    • Caps' Gleason (Elbow) Out Saturday

      News: Tim Gleason (elbow) will not play in Saturday's game against the Jets, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
      Analysis: Tim Gleason took the ice for pregame warmups but his elbow apparently wasn't feeling well enough to compete against the Jets. He should be considered day-to-day ahead of Thursday's game against the Devils.
    • Caps' Gleason (Elbow) A Game-Time Decision

      News: Tim Gleason (elbow) will take the pregame warmup in Winnipeg on Saturday and will be a game-time decision.
      Analysis: Tim Gleason missed Thursday's contest against the Wild with the ailment and may be held out of Saturday's lineup as a precaution, as a healthy Nate Schmidt helps mitigate the need to play the rugged defenseman on a nightly basis. Even when in the lineup, Gleason's lack of offensive production renders him largely irrelevant outside of very deep leagues that count peripheral statistics like hits or blocked shots.
    • Caps' Gleason Practices Friday

      News: Tim Gleason (elbow) was a participant in Friday's practice, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
      Analysis: Rather than skating in his usual spot next to Mike Green, Tim Gleason was instead limited to fourth-pairing duties with fellow injured defenseman Dmitry Orlov. Based on that arrangement, it appears likely that Gleason will be forced to miss a second straight game Saturday against the Jets, though coach Barry Trotz has yet to issue an official ruling on the blueliner's status.
