  • Devils' Vernon Fiddler: Taken off IR, ready to go Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/21/17) Fiddler (lower body) was activated from injured reserve Saturday.

    The injury prevented Fiddler from playing at all this month, but that will change Saturday as the Devils have reassigned Blake Coleman to the minors to make room for the veteran pivot on the fourth line. Fiddler managed to clear the 20-point barrier in each of his last three seasons with the Stars, but life in New Jersey hasn't been so kind to the 36-year-old, as he's posted a mere there points against a minus-7 rating in 35 games this campaign.

    Devils' Vernon Fiddler: Sidelined 3-to-4 weeks

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/28/16) Fiddler will be out of the lineup for 3-to-4 weeks with a lower-body ailment, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.

    Fiddler's loss, while impactful for the Devils, is unlikely to have much effect on owners given his 11-game pointless streak and overall lack of production this year -- three points in 35 outings. A penalty-kill specialist, the center offers little in terms of fantasy value at this point in his career. New Jersey have placed Fiddler on injured reserve per the NHL Media Site.

    Devils' Vernon Fiddler: Will suit up Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/22/16) Fiddler (undisclosed) will return to the lineup against Philadelphia on Thursday, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.

    Fiddler will not miss any time after blocking a shot in Tuesday's outing. Despite averaging 12:08 of ice time per game, the center has been unable to write himself onto the scoresheet in his last eight appearances. In addition, the 36-year-old veteran's results in the defensive zone have been mixed, as he posted a minus-6 rating, but did block six shots and dish out 10 hits.

    Devils' Vernon Fiddler: Absent from practice

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/21/16) Fiddler did not take part in Wednesday's practice after blocking a Roman Josi shot against Nashville on Tuesday, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.

    The silverlining for Fiddler owners is that it wasn't a Shea Weber shot, the reigning hardest shot in the league. The Devils have not provided any additional details on the nature of Fiddler's injury, so his status Thursday against the Flyers should probably be considered questionable at best. The gritty center's primary contributions this year have come from PIM (21) and hits (34), rather than scoring. Unless you are in need of ancillary stats, you can likely leave the 36-year-old out of your fantasy lineups.

    Devils' Vernon Fiddler: Fights Ryan Kesler

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/19/16) Fiddler got in a fight with Anaheim's Ryan Kesler in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Ducks.

    It didn't take long for the two to drop the gloves, with just 30 seconds having elapsed in the first period. Fiddler's five penalty minutes from the fight were his only contribution to the box score, which shouldn't come as a surprise given the 36-year-old veteran's fourth-line center role.

    March 31, 2015: Fiddler Snaps Slump In Stars Loss
    Fiddler had an assist and a plus-1 rating in the Stars loss to the Flames on Monday.That assist snapped a seven-game slump. That slump came on the heels of a nice six-game run, over which he potted five goals and an assist. Fiddler's value remains low and the production he does bring in will come in streaks. His 12 goals and 15 assists on the season is at the north end of what you expect from Fiddler.
