Warsofsky agreed to terms on a two-year, two-way deal with the Avalanche on Saturday. Warsofsky could be in line for a regular role with Colorado after having spent the majority of the previous season in the minors with AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. The Boston University product put up an impressive 16 goals and 31 helpers from the blue line with the Baby Pens, but was unlikely to see consistent ice in Pittsburgh. Now with the Avs, Warsofsky should see an uptick in games played and minutes -- which would make him a solid mid-range fantasy option.
Warsofsky was one of 13 players called up from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Monday, Seth Lakso of The Citizens' Voice reports. Of all the guys getting promoted, Warsofsky stands the best chance of slotting into the lineup considering he racked up 47 points during the season in the minors. With Brian Dumoulin (undisclosed) and Chad Ruhwedel (arm) still battling injuries, the Pittsburgh blue line may need a player of Warsofsky's caliber to step in. A few notable names among the other Black Aces include Josh Archibald, Oskar Sundqvist and Kevin Porter -- all of whom logged some time with the Pens this season.
Warsofsky was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Thursday. Warsofsky's demotion would seem to indicate that Ron Hainsey (upper body) will be ready for Friday's clash with the Rangers. The 26-year-old Warsofsky logged just one game during this latest stint, seeing 19:06 of ice time while garnering an assist and blocking four shots. The blueliner should continue racking up points with the Baby Pens -- he has 15 goals and 29 helpers in the AHL, but Warsofsky has yet to transition his game to the NHL level.
Warsofsky was called up from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Saturday. So far, Warsofsky has played six games with the Penguins NHL squad, posting zero points in that time. The 26-year-old defenseman only has five points in an NHL career going on four years old, so he's not likely to make a fantasy impact with the big club this late in the season.
Warsofsky was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Tuesday. Warsofsky was a liability for the Penguins upon his latest call-up, recording a minus-3 rating with a pair of penalties in two games. The Penguins have recalled Cameron Gaunce in favor of the fourth-year player.
