  • Justin Fontaine: Heading to KHL
    By RotoWire Staff

    Fontaine signed a one-year deal with Dynamo Minsk (KHL) on Monday, Igor Eronko of Sport-Express reports. Fontaine was unable to crack the lineup with either the Rangers or the Oilers last year -- instead spending the entire campaign down in the minors. While in the AHL, the University of Minnesota-Duluth product tallied 41 points in 65 outings. The 29-year-old does have some NHL experience (197 games with the Wild) so a return to the league is not out of the question -- if he can put together a solid season in Russia.

  • Fontaine was shipped to Edmonton for Taylor Beck by the Rangers prior to Wednesday's NHL trade deadline. A member of the Wild organization for his entire career prior to this season, Fontaine signed on with the Rangers in October and has been plying his trade with AHL Hartford, collecting 30 points in 50 games. He could serve as a legitimate bottom-six winger for a team that has more room to utilize him; Fontaine was never going to get a chance with the Rangers except in case of a raft of injuries. Expect him to start out with AHL Bakersfield unless otherwise noted.

  • Fontaine signed a two-way contract with the Rangers on Sunday. The 28-year-old wasn't much of an offensive threat last season, only scoring 16 points, so he will start out with AHL Hartford. If the Rangers need some forward depth at some point, Fontaine could be an option.

  • Justin Fontaine: Released from PTO with Stars
    By RotoWire Staff

    Fontaine was released from his professional tryout with the Stars on Sunday. Fontaine made it to the end of camp but it was going to be difficult for him to crack a loaded forward group for the group for Dallas. He's now a free agent and available to sign with other clubs.

  • Fontaine was released from his professional tryout offer with the Panthers on Friday, Harvey Fialkov of the Sun-Sentinel reports. Now that the World Cup of Hockey is over, the training camp rosters will no longer be thin. Evidently, Fontaine, who was formerly with the Wild, did not make a lasting impression with the Panthers. Plus, he produced roughly half as many points (16) last year as he did in his second go-around with Minnesota.
