  • Lightning's James Wisniewski: Good fit on power play if he can make team

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/17/16) Wisniewski, who played just one game last season due to an ACL injury, says "this is probably the most excited I've ever been coming into a training camp" even though he's entering the season on a tryout agreement, reports the Tampa Bay Times.

    "(General Manager Steve Yzerman) told me they really wanted a right-shot power play defenseman," Wisniewski said. "I've been in that role the last six years or so. So what better team to come to than a team that loves being here?" Wiz is a low-risk, high-reward fantasy pick this season, as he could slot into a specialty role on the power play for the Bolts. The team ranked 28th in 2015-16 with just a 15.8 percent success rate. And new Bolts' assistant coach Todd Richards understands the value Wisniewski can bring -- the defender played for him in Columbus. Five D spots are all but locked up, leaving Wiz to fight with two or three other guys for the remaining opening. But coach Jon Cooper likes to roll seven guys on the back end and Wiz might just be able to resurrect his career with a potential Stanley Cup fave.

    James Wisniewski: Ready for 2016-17 season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (8/4/16) Wisniewski (knee) reported on Twitter that he was back to 100% ahead of the upcoming NHL season.

    Wisniewski is still looking for a place to call home after being bought out of his contract by the Hurricanes in June. The 32-year-old played in just one contest last year after undergoing surgery on his knee. If he can return to the form that saw him notch at least 30 points in four of his last seven seasons, which is far from guaranteed, the blueliner could be a discounted value play; assuming a team is willing to take a risk on him.

    James Wisniewski: Bought out of contract

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/30/16) Wisniewski (knee) will be a free agent after his contract was bought out by the Hurricanes on Thursday.

    Wisniewski was injured less than a minute into the opening game of the season and sat out the entire year rehabbing from surgery. Given his age, it is not surprising that the 32-year-old has been released and it seems unlikely he will be re-signed by Carolina. Since his recovery time remains vague, the blueliner's chances of landing with a new team seem equally uncertain.

    Hurricanes' James Wisniewski: Spotted ahead of morning skate Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/23/16) Wisniewski (knee) was on the ice prior to morning skate Tuesday, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.

    The Hurricanes have been relatively mum on Wisniewski since the defenseman sustained a torn ACL in the first game of the season. We'll take the lack of substantial information as a sign that he still has several hurdles to overcome in his rehab before he'd be able to return. Only 22 games remain on the regular-season schedule for the Hurricanes, who still have work to do in order to secure a spot in the playoffs.

    Hurricanes' James Wisniewski: Still in recovery mode

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/29/16) Wisniewski is still rehabbing from left knee surgery performed early last October, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.

    Wisniewski has logged just 47 seconds of ice time this campaign as he tore his ACL in the first game of the season. The team hasn't disclosed much information about his recovery progress though it's worth noting that Wisniewski's return timetable of six months falls right around the tail end of the regular season.
