  • Blues' Eric Nystrom: Trying out for Blues

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/8/16) Nystrom signed a professional tryout agreement (PTO) with St. Louis on Thursday, James Mirtle of TSN 1050 reports.

    The left wingman was relatively unproductive with Nashville last season as he managed only seven goals and no assists in 46 games played. However, at 33 years old, he would bring hockey acumen and a good sense of the ice to any team he eventually joins. If the veteran ends up signing with the Blues, he would likely compete for a third-line role behind up-and-coming forwards Jaden Schwartz and Robby Fabbri.

    Eric Nystrom: Clears waivers, eligible for buyout

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/30/16) Nystrom cleared buyout waivers Thursday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.

    Nystrom had to be placed on unconditional waivers in order for the Predators to execute a contract buyout on the 33-year-old winger. General manager David Poile was unsuccessful in his attempt to trade the physical winger around the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, and with free agency looming, it makes sense for the big boss to simply cut his losses and move on. Buying out the 10-year veteran, who only produced seven points -- all goals -- last season saves Nashville $2 million in 2016-17.

    Eric Nystrom: Placed on waivers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/29/16) Nystrom has been placed on waivers in order for Nashville to buyout the remainder of his contract, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports.

    Nystrom was the subject of trade speculation heading into the 2016 NHL Draft, but it appears that after general manager David Poile was unable to find a team willing to give something up for the 33-year-old, the Predators will buyout the remaining year on his contract. The move will provide Nashville with an extra $2 million in cap space for 2016-17. Nystrom's production has continued to drop off over the past few years and he has been replaced in the depth chart by fellow wingers Colton Sissons and Miikka Salomaki who are younger and cheaper.

    Predators' Eric Nystrom: On the block

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/14/16) The Predators are actively shopping Nystrom, who comes with a $2.5 million cap hit next season. "We're getting close to a deadline in that situation," general manager David Poile said. "A buyout is possible if I'm unable to make a trade, but we're going to do something in that area."

    Nystrom inked a four-year, $10 million contract with the Preds in 2013, but significant injuries to his lower body and foot curtailed his production the last two seasons. The 33-year-old only played in 46 games in 2015-16, recording a minus-6 rating with seven goals and counting as his only points. He might end up latching on with a club that needs a checking specialist -- Nystrom has collected more than 100 hits in six of the past eight seasons and easily would've hit that mark in the most recent campaign had he played more games.

    Predators' Eric Nystrom: Will return Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/21/16) Nystrom (foot) will rejoin the lineup Monday against the Kings, Robby Stanley of NHL.com reports.

    Nystrom hasn't seen any action since Jan. 26 because of the broken foot, but that extended absence will finally come to close Monday. The 33-year-old winger doesn't produce much offensively (seven points in 40 games), so he still remains off the fantasy radar in nearly all leagues.
