  • R.J. Umberger: Cut from training camp
    By RotoWire Staff

    Umberger was let go from his professional tryout agreement by the Stars on Wednesday. Umberger is facing a second straight year watching the NHL from home after he was unable to land a gig for the 2016-17 campaign as well. With no teams calling -- and the 35-year-old seemingly unwilling to sign overseas -- it may be time for him to consider hanging up his skates.

  • Stars' R.J. Umberger: Signs professional tryout
    By RotoWire Staff

    Umberger will join the Stars at training camp after agreeing to terms on a professional tryout agreement Friday, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports. Following the 2015-16 campaign, Umberger was bought out of his contract and failed to secure another gig. Dallas will give the former first-round pick a shot during training camp after he sat out all of last season. At his peak, the 35-year-old recorded 50-plus points three times, but also fell short of the 20-point threshold in each of his last two seasons. If the Stars think they can get at least 10 goals out of the Pittsburgh native, you have to think they will sign him to a one-year, league-minimum contract.

  • R.J. Umberger: Bought out by Philadelphia
    By RotoWire Staff

    Umberger, as expected, was bought out by the Flyers and is now on the free agent market. Philadelphia will save $3 million in cap space by stretching out Umberger's contract through the buyout. The winger has been abysmal since being acquired via trade by the Flyers as he registered a paltry 26 points in his two seasons in the orange and black. The market is certainly dwindling for the 34-year-old, but he may still find a landing spot on a young team looking for an established veteran.

  • Flyers' R.J. Umberger: Facing contract buyout
    By RotoWire Staff

    Umberger will be the subject of a contract buyout by the Flyers, Dave Isaac of the Courier-Post reports. As indicated in the report, Umberger has a no-move clause which gives a player the right to decide whether he'll be placed on waivers as part of the buyout process. Umberger has been swimming in the dough thanks to his signing a five-year, $23 million extension with the Blue Jackets in 2011. He fell out of favor in Columbus and was traded to Philly almost two years ago -- along with a 2015 fourth-round pick -- in exchange for Scott Hartnell. But the 34-year-old was a colossal disappointment in the City of Brotherly Love, recording just 26 points in 106 games and struggling to rebound from a hip injury that required surgery, an issue with his foot, and a few more ailments. The Flyers' decision to buy out Umberger was a no-brainer since he only had one year remaining on that contract and the buyout includes $3 million in savings in 2016-17.

  • Flyers' R.J. Umberger: Posts rare multi-point game
    By RotoWire Staff

    Umberger tallied two assists Tuesday in a 6-3 win over New Jersey. Hey, look at that -- Umberger's put up two noteworthy efforts in the last four games, with the other one being the match against Buffalo in which he picked up his first goal of the year. It's nice to see, but we can't count on Umberger to keep finding the scoresheet; he's been absolutely atrocious from a fantasy perspective since arriving in Philadelphia last year, totaling 24 points in 103 games.
