  • Avalanche's Miikka Salomaki: Sent to bus league

    Salomaki was reassigned to AHL Colorado on Thursday.

    Mikko Rantanen (not injury related) and Joonas Donskoi (not injury related) are both on track to return Friday versus the Sharks, so the Avalanche are no longer in need of Salomaki's services as a depth forward.

    Salomaki was added to the active roster Monday, per CapFriendly.

  • Avalanche's Miikka Salomaki: Called up to taxi squad

    Salomaki was promoted to the taxi squad Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

    Salomaki has spent most of the season with AHL Colorado, where he has nine points in 19 games. He's not likely to see much playing time with the Avalanche.

  • Avalanche's Miikka Salomaki: Bumps down rank

    The Avalanche demoted Salomaki to AHL Colorado on Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

    The 27-year-old was added to the taxi squad Friday to add some depth to the forward group, as the team was dealing with players in the COVID-19 protocol. Salomaki could be a candidate for another call-up before too long, as he's racked up 27 points across 167 NHL games in his career.

  • Avalanche's Miikka Salomaki: Jumps to taxi squad

    Salomaki was recalled from AHL Colorado to the taxi squad Friday.

    Salomaki likely will travel with the team on its upcoming two-game road trip to Vegas. The 27-year-old has 167 NHL games under his belt, in which he's registered 12 goals and 15 assists. He'll likely draw into the bottom six if he cracks the lineup.

  • Avalanche's Miikka Salomaki: Back with Colorado

    Salomaki cleared waivers Saturday, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.

    Salomaki, who signed with the Avalanche organization during the offseason, has been assigned to AHL Colorado and now becomes a candidate for the Avalanche's taxi squad. The 27-year-old winger scored five goals with 10 assists over 41 games for AHL Milwaukee in 2019-20. He also spent five games with Nashville last season and has 167 games of NHL experience.

  • Avalanche's Miikka Salomaki: Lands on waivers

    Salomaki was placed on waivers by Colorado on Friday, James Mirtle of The Athletic reports.

    Considering Salomaki has 167 games of NHL experience under his belt, all with the Predators, he should be a strong candidate to land on the taxi squad. In those games, the 27-year-old winger tallied 12 goals, 15 assists and 172 shots while averaging 11:04 of ice time.

  • Avalanche's Miikka Salomaki: Journeys to Mile High City

    Salomaki signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Avalanche on Friday, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.

    Salomaki played mostly in the AHL last year, posting seven goals and 12 assists over 49 games. The 27-year-old has plenty of NHL experience, however, as he's banked 167 regular-season games at the top level and another 30 in the playoffs. He'll likely begin next season with AHL Colorado.

  • Maple Leafs' Miikka Salomaki: Headed to Canada

    Salomaki was traded to Toronto on Saturday. In return, Nashville received defenseman Ben Harpur.

    Salomaki has a goal in five games with the Predators this season and has spent most of 2019-20 with AHL Milwaukee. He'll likely report to Toronto's minor-league affiliate to begin his northern tenure, so no need to rush to claim the 26-year-old off the fantasy waiver wire.

  • Predators' Miikka Salomaki: Sent to bus league

    The Predators assigned Salomaki to AHL Milwaukee on Sunday.

    Salomaki had been a healthy scratch for the Predators for the past seven games, so his demotion isn't quite a surprise. It's possible he'll look to earn some confidence back in the AHL, and be one of the first forwards called up should injuries occur.

  • Predators' Miikka Salomaki: Odd man out

    Salomaki served as a healthy scratch for the second straight game Saturday against the Rangers.

    The Preds called up Salomaki in mid-October while Filip Forsberg was on the shelf with a lower-body injury. Now that Forsberg has returned to the lineup, don't be surprised if Salomaki gets sent back down to AHL Milwaukee. He has just one point in five games for the Preds this season.

  • Predators' Miikka Salomaki: Rises to NHL level

    Salomaki was recalled from AHL Milwaukee on Saturday.

    Nashville also recalled Yakov Trenin and demoted Daniel Carr. With Filip Forsberg battling a lower-body injury, Salomaki's likely to work his way into the lineup immediately Saturday against the Panthers.

  • Predators' Miikka Salomaki: Waived by club

    Salomaki was designated for waivers by Nashville on Monday, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.

    Salomaki's demotion is likely the result of Eeli Tolvanen's emergence as a viable forward option. The 26-year-old Salomaki has played in 162 NHL games, but has consistently been a fringe roster player, splitting his time between the NHL and AHL throughout his career. If needed, the Finn should feature prominently on the list of potential call-ups this year.

  • Predators' Miikka Salomaki: Collects assist in return

    Salomaki (upper body) had an assist and two hits in Monday's 3-2 win over the Stars in Game 3.

    After missing over three months, Salomaki skated 10:14 in this postseason contest. It's not too far off from his season average, and with the Predators seeing Brian Boyle (abdomen) and Wayne Simmonds (lower body) out, Salomaki will likely be asked to pick up some of the slack from their absences.

  • Predators' Miikka Salomaki: Back in action

    Salomaki (upper body) will draw into the lineup for Monday's Game 3 against the Stars in Dallas, Tracey Myers of NHL.com reports.

    Salomaki hasn't played an NHL game since Jan. 4 due to an upper-body injury. This news comes on the heels of fellow forwards Brian Boyle (abdomen) and Wayne Simmonds (lower body) ruled out. The Finnish born product could work back into the lineup slowly, and produced seven points in 37 games this campaign. He is expected to play on the fourth line with Calle Jarnkrok and Rocco Grimaldi.

  • Predators' Miikka Salomaki: No clear return date

    Salomaki (upper body) is not in the projected lineup for Game 1 of the conference quarterfinals opposing the Stars on Wednesday, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.

    Salomaki's status is being magnified since playoff action is looming and playoff poolies understandably will want to know who can be counted on for production. Considering the Finn has missed 40 straight games and remains without a clear timetable for his return, we don't expect Salomaki will be a viable option at any point in the opening series (or even beyond).

  • Predators' Miikka Salomaki: Implied scratch Thursday

    Salomaki (upper body) is projected to sit out Thursday when the Predators play host to the Canucks, per Ben Kuzma of The Province.

    Salomaki hasn't played in exactly three months, and there are doubts about his readiness for the postseason.

  • Predators' Miikka Salomaki: Can't go Tuesday

    Salomaki (upper body) remains out for Tuesday's game versus the Sabres, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

    Salomaki hasn't played in an NHL game since Jan. 4, although he did play three games for AHL Milwaukee during a conditioning stint. He likely won't be a lineup fixture in the playoffs, so fantasy owners shouldn't be concerned with his absence.
