  • Predators' Matt Carle: Inks one-year deal with Nashville

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/27/16) Carle signed a one-year, $700,000 contract with the Predators on Wednesday, NHL.com's Dan Rosen reports.

    Carle was Tampa Bay's highest-paid defenseman last season, but only tallied nine points (two goals, seven assists) while averaging 16:47 of ice time over 59 games, prompting the Bolts to buy out the Alaska native's bloated contract in June. Carle will slot into a limited role with the Predators in 2016-17, and may ultimately watch a majority of the team's contests from the press box as a healthy scratch.

    Matt Carle: Buyout in the works

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/30/16) Carle will be subjected to a contract buyout from the Lightning, as announced Thursday, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    This news should not come as a shock, as Carle was Tampa's highest paid defenseman last season with a salary of $5.5 million, but failed to provide much return on the investment. He produced just nine points in 64 games while averaging 16:47 of ice time, which is not a lot of rink time for a blueliner. Buying him out allows the Bolts to save $3.6 million for the next two years.

    Lightning's Matt Carle: Playing Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/6/16) Carle is in the lineup for Friday's Game 4 against the Islanders, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Carle's return to action shouldn't impact fantasy owners' lineups, as the 31-year-old defender has only notched 11 points over 70 games this season, and isn't a desirable option in daily contests or playoff pools. The 2003 second-round pick will skat alongside Slater Koekkoek on the Lightning's third-pairing in Friday's Game 4.

    Lightning's Matt Carle: Game-time decision Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/6/16) Carle (undisclosed) told reporters he was a game-time decision for Game 4 on Friday against the Islanders, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Carle has been out of the lineup since recording an assist in the opening game of the second round. While the blueliner has had minimal offensive production this year, he is a crucial piece on the back end as he averaged 1:42 of penalty-kill ice time during the regular season and has added 10 blocked shots in six playoff contests. For fantasy owners, the 31-year-old's return will likely pass under the radar, but Tampa Bay fans will be happy to see him back on the ice.

    Lightning's Matt Carle: Skates Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/3/16) Carle (undisclosed) took part in Tuesday's optional skate, but won't suit up for Tuesday's Game 3 against the Islanders, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Carle's continued absence won't impact many fantasy owners' lineups, as the 31-year-old blueliner doesn't contribute much offensively, limiting his value in daily contests and playoff pools. Matt Taormina will likely continue to draw into Tampa Bay's lineup while Carle remains sidelined. The Lightning should provide another update on Carle's status once the Alaska native is fit to play.

    March 22, 2015: Bolts' Carle Adds Two Helpers In Win
    Carle dished out a pair of assists in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Bruins.Carle skated just 17:38 as he continues to see somewhat limited ice time since returning from a hip injury that cost him 22 contests, but he's now notched three points in four games since coming back. The 30-year-old could see an increase in ice time as he shakes off the rust, but with just 17 points on the season, the defenseman doesn't hold much fantasy value outside of deeper formats.
