Top Nicolas Aube-Kubel News

  • Capitals' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Pots goal Sunday

    Aube-Kubel tallied a goal, four PIM and two shots on net during Sunday's 4-3 preseason loss to the Sabres.

    Aube-Kubel opened the scoring for the Capitals in the first period. The 27-year-old is once again expected to serve as a bottom-six contributor for Washington, but a lack of consistent ice time and opportunity won't do much for his fantasy value in standard formats.

  • Capitals' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Lights lamp Tuesday

    Aube-Kubel tallied a goal and dished three hits during Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Rangers.

    Aube-Kubel has two goals and four points in his last nine games and seems to be getting regular ice time following the trades of Garnet Hathaway and Lars Eller. The 26-year-old is proving to be a useful depth forward for the Capitals, evidenced by the one-year, $1.225 extension he signed on March 3, but he isn't much of a fantasy asset.

  • Capitals' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Signs one-year contract

    Aube-Kubel inked a one-year, $1.225 million contract extension with the Capitals on Friday.

    Aube-Kubel has two goals, eight points, 30 PIM and 77 hits in 36 games while averaging 11:00 of ice time this season. Washington claimed him off waivers from Toronto on Nov. 5. Aube-Kubel is getting a raise compared to his one-year, $1 million contract for the 2022-23 campaign.

  • Capitals' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Returning Tuesday

    Aube-Kubel will draw into the lineup Tuesday against the Wild and skate on the top line, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

    Aube-Kubel is making his return with a plum assignment on the top line alongside Alex Ovechkin and Dylan Strome. The Capitals have been shuffling lines aggressively in recent outings so it's not clear how long the 26-year-old will enjoy the cushy assignment, but his appeal in daily formats gets a sizable boost given the current deployment.

  • Capitals' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Scores first of the season

    Aube-Kubel scored a goal on two shots in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Aube-Kubel gave Washington a 2-1 lead in the second period, jumping on a neutral-zone turnover before working around the Columbus defense and firing a shot under the pad of Elvis Merzlikins. It's the first goal of the season for Aube-Kubel, who'd been a healthy scratch in the Capitals' previous two contests. The 26-year-old forward has a goal and four assists through 12 games this season.

  • Capitals' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Supplies two assists

    Aube-Kubel notched two assists, four shots on goal, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 7-3 win over the Blackhawks.

    Aube-Kubel was initially projected to be a healthy scratch for the 11th game in a row, but he got the assignment over Joe Snively with Lars Eller (upper body) out. It worked out, as Aube-Kubel earned his first two points of the season with assists on goals by Nic Dowd and Dmitry Orlov. Aube-Kubel has added eight shots on net, 11 PIM, 29 hits and a plus-1 rating in 11 contests between the Capitals and the Maple Leafs. When he plays, he's often limited to a fourth-line role.

  • Capitals' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Receives three-game suspension

    Aube-Kubel was suspended for three games Saturday for his check to the head of Tampa Bay's Cal Foote on Friday.

    Aube-Kubel also received a match penalty Friday because of the incident. Foote was injured on the play and didn't return to Friday's contest. The NHL Department of Player Safety argued that Aube-Kubel made the head the main point of contact and that the head contact was avoidable. Aube-Kubel is eligible to return Nov. 19 versus Colorado. If Washington inserts him into the lineup after he serves his suspension, it will likely be as a fourth liner.

  • Capitals' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Hearing with Player Safety

    Aube-Kubel will have a hearing Saturday with NHL Player Safety after his illegal check to the head of Tampa Bay's Cal Foote on Friday.

    Aube-Kubel picked up a match penalty for the hit and will likely face a suspension. It was his third game with Washington after he was claimed on waivers from Toronto six days earlier. Aube-Kubel has yet to pick up a point in nine games this season.

  • Maple Leafs' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Put on waivers

    Aube-Kubel was placed on waivers by Toronto on Friday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    Aube-Kubel has no points, four PIM and 21 hits in six games while averaging 9:05 of ice time with the Maple Leafs this season. Even if he clears and gets sent to the minors, there's a fair chance Toronto will summon him later in the season. Any time he's in the NHL, though, it likely won't be for anything more than a fourth-line role.

  • Capitals' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Claimed by Capitals

    Washington claimed Aube-Kubel off waivers from Toronto on Saturday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Aube-Kubel joined the Leafs on a one-year, $1 million contract in July after he didn't receive a qualifying offer from the Avalanche. In six games with Toronto this season, the 26-year-old forward posted two shots on goal and 21 hits.

  • Maple Leafs' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Ice time limited on fourth line

    Aube-Kubel is skating on the fourth line in Toronto.

    He is riding alongside David Kampf and Zach Aston-Reese. Aube-Kubel has seen limited ice time, which dropped to a season-low 6:15 against the Coyotes on Monday. He has four PIM and one shot.

  • Maple Leafs' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Signs with Toronto

    Aube-Kubel signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Maple Leafs on Wednesday.

    Aube-Kubel spent most of the 2021-22 campaign with the Avalanche, picking up a respectable 11 goals, 11 assists and 123 hits while averaging 9:49 of ice time through 67 contests. As long as Aube-Kubel is able to maintain a regular spot in Toronto's bottom six in 2022-23, he'll probably once again hover around the 25-point mark if he's able to stay healthy.

  • Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Won't get qualifying offer

    Aube-Kubel will not be receiving a qualifying offer, making him an unrestricted free agent Wednesday, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    Aube-Kubel failed to register a single point in 14 postseason contests and was a healthy scratch for the Avs' final three games of the Stanley Cup Finals. During the regular season, the 26-year-old center was slightly more productive with 11 goals and 11 assists in 67 games, all career bests, but considering the big deal the team just handed Valeri Nichushkin (eight years and $49 million), something had to give for Colorado, and Aube-Kubel finds himself the odd man out.

  • Avalanche's Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Registers helper

    Aube-Kubel notched an assist and four hits in Thursday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Predators.

    Aube-Kubel set up Logan O'Connor for the Avalanche's third goal of the game. The 25-year-old Aube-Kubel has earned four goals, three assists and 27 hits through 12 games in April. The physical forward is up to 23 points, 85 shots on net, 140 hits and a plus-11 rating in 73 contests between the Avalanche and the Flyers this season.

  • Avalanche's Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Slides assist in loss

    Aube-Kubel had an assist and two hits in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Capitals.

    Aube-Kubel picked up the secondary assist as part of a forechecking sequence that led to Colorado's second goal. The forward seems to have responded to a one-game benching in late March. Since then, he's compiled six points (four goals, two assists) and is plus-5 over eight games.

  • Avalanche's Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Puts away two goals

    Aube-Kubel scored two goals on four shots in Wednesday's 9-3 win over the Kings.

    Aube-Kubel reached the 10-goal mark on the opening tally and scored another in the first period. That got him to the 20-point mark for the first time in his career. The 25-year-old has settled in nicely to a third-line role with the Avalanche after he came over on a waiver claim from the Flyers early in the season. He's produced 80 shots on net, 124 hits, 43 PIM and a plus-11 rating in 66 appearances overall.

  • Avalanche's Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Nets opening tally

    Aube-Kubel scored a goal, added two hits and went plus-2 in Friday's 5-4 overtime win over the Jets.

    Aube-Kubel got the scoring started 5:10 into the first period. The 25-year-old forward has scored twice in his last three games since a healthy scratch. He had gone 17 appearances without a point prior to sitting out a contest, so it's clear he received the message from the benching. Aube-Kubel is at nine goals, nine assists, 76 shots on net, 120 hits and a plus-7 rating through 64 games between the Avalanche and the Flyers this season.

  • Avalanche's Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Returns, scores

    Aube-Kubel scored a goal on two shots in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Penguins.

    Aube-Kubel stepped into a drop pass from Alex Newhook and whistled a slapshot past Tristan Jarry. The forward was a healthy scratch in Colorado's previous game, but Nazem Kadri's upper-body injury opened a spot on the active roster. The tally was Aube-Kubel's first since Feb. 13, a 20-game stretch during which he was inactive twice. Head coach Jared Bednar said Kadri "is going to miss some time," according to Kelsey Hammond of Colorado Hockey Now, so Aube-Kubel could remain in the lineup for the immediate future.

  • Avalanche's Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Scratched Thursday

    Aube-Kubel was scratched for Thursday's game against San Jose.

    This shouldn't come as too much of a surprise. Colorado's lineup featured both trade-deadline acquisitions -- Andrew Cogliano and Artturi Lehkonen -- plus they had Nathan MacKinnon back in the fold. It's uncertain if Aube-Kubel will become the permanent 13th forward or if there will be a rotation of healthy players scratched.
