  • John Mitchell: Looking for new team
    By RotoWire Staff

    Mitchell's stint with Columbus was short-lived, as he was released from his tryout Wednesday, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic Cleveland reports. Mitchell spent all of six days with the Blue Jackets, who may have just been trying to get insider information from his time with the rival Blackhawks. Unless he's willing to sign a minor-league deal or head overseas, the veteran center may have to consider retiring at this point.

  • Mitchell secured a professional tryout agreement with Columbus on Thursday -- his second such deal of the summer. Just hours after being let go from his tryout with Chicago, Mitchell found a new home with the Blue Jackets. With injuries and inexperience down the middle of their lineup, it should come as little surprise that the veteran is being brougth for a look. If he can't secure a permanent deal in Columbus, it seems likely Mitchell will have played his last NHL game.

  • John Mitchell: Released from tryout
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Blackhawks released Mitchell from his professional tryout agreement Thursday. Mitchell was always considered a long shot to win a spot on Chicago's roster, so there's no sense in giving him preseason ice time that would be better spent on Chicago's crop of youngsters. The 32-year-old pivot may have played his last game in the NHL.

  • Blackhawks' John Mitchell: Set for PTO with Chicago
    By RotoWire Staff

    Mitchell will participate in Chicago's upcoming training camp after agreeing to a professional tryout agreement, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. A five-time double-digit goal scorer at the NHL level, including from 2012-16 with Colorado, Mitchell had the worst season of his career in 2016-17, notching just three goals and seven points in 65 games. Unless Mitchell is able to rediscover his game over the course of training camp, it's nearly impossible to imagine him winning a roster spot over exciting young players like Tanner Kero and Vinnie Hinostroza.

  • Mitchell contributed a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Blues. Mitchell opened the scoring 5:32 in with his third goal in 63 appearances, and added his fourth helper on a Mark Barberio tally in the third period. This was the first multi-point effort of the season for the 32-year-old center, who has declined significantly after potting double-digit goals in each of his first four campaigns in Colorado.
