  • Red Wings' Riley Barber: Promoted to top level

    Barber was recalled by Detroit on Saturday.

    Carter Rowney and Givani Smith have both entered the NHL's COVID-19 protocols, so Barber will likely draw into the lineup immediately Saturday against the Devils. Barber's racked up 16 points through 21 AHL appearances this season.

  • Red Wings' Riley Barber: Assigned to AHL affiliate

    The Red Wings assigned Barber to AHL Grand Rapids on Friday.

    Barber will likely continue to bounce between Detroit's minor-league affiliate and taxi squad throughout the season, so he won't be a viable fantasy option. The 26-year-old winger went scoreless in nine appearances with the Canadiens last season.

    Barber was recalled to the taxi squad Sunday.

  • Red Wings' Riley Barber: Designated for waivers

    Barber was waived by the Red Wings on Monday, Max Bultman of The Athletic Detroit reports.

    While he's been a fine two-way producer in the lower ranks, Barber is still looking to claim a stable role in the NHL. The Wings have plenty of experienced centers, so it might take an injury or two up front for Barber to ascend to hockey's highest level.

  • Red Wings' Riley Barber: Finds new home in Detroit

    Barber signed a two-year contract with the Red Wings on Friday.

    Barber has spent most of his professional career in the AHL but does have 12 games of NHL experience on his resume. The 26-year-old forward played 46 AHL games last season and posted 16 goals and 37 total points. Barber could make the Red Wings' roster with a strong training camp, but he's more likely to land with AHL Grand Rapids to start the year.

  • Penguins' Riley Barber: Flipped in minor-league deal

    Barber and Phil Varone will join the Penguins from the Canadiens in exchange for Joseph Blandisi and Jake Lucchini.

    In nine NHL games this year, Barber has registered 15 hits, six shots and two PIM while averaging a mere 8:15 of ice time. In the minors, the 26-year-old has been significantly more productive, as he has racked up 13 goals and 18 helpers with AHL Laval. Barring a run of injuries, the Pittsburgh native is unlikely to get into a game for the Penguins this season.

  • Canadiens' Riley Barber: Shifted to minors

    The Canadiens assigned Barber to AHL Laval on Thursday, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    The 25-year-old made his Montreal debut in the month of December, going pointless in nine contests with the big club. Barber's demotion is likely evidence that one of five forwards dealing with injury for the Canadiens is nearing a return to the ice.

  • Canadiens' Riley Barber: Makes Montreal debut

    Barber had two shots and two hits over 12:00 of ice time in Tuesday's 4-1 win over Pittsburgh.

    Barber, a native of the Pittsburgh suburbs, made his Montreal debut against the team he grew up following. The 25-year-old forward, who was (and remains) the leading scorer at AHL Laval, skated on the Canadiens' fourth line and is expected to stay there for the time being. Linemate Matthew Peca (lower body) left Tuesday's game, so there may be a roster spot available Wednesday against the Senators even if Jesperi Kotkaniemi (concussion) returns.

  • Canadiens' Riley Barber: Summoned to big club

    Barber was recalled from AHL Laval on Sunday.

    Barber has racked up six goals and 18 points in 21 games with AHL Laval this season. His last NHL action game in a three-game stint with the Capitals during the 2016-17 campaign. With several injuries to the forward group in Montreal, Barber could squeeze into the lineup for Tuesday's game in Pittsburgh.

  • Riley Barber: Waived by the Canadiens

    Barber was waived by the Canadiens, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

  • Canadiens' Riley Barber: Signs with Montreal organization

    Barber will make at least $400,000 and can earn as much as $700,000 if he's able to stick around at the NHL level. With only three NHL games under his belt, Barber is little more than organizational depth.

  • Capitals' Riley Barber: Heads back to minors

    The Capitals reassigned Barber to AHL Hershey on Sunday.

    Barber was called up Friday and served as a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against the Blue Jackets. He'll head back to the AHL for now but could be recalled again if Tom Wilson is still suffering from a concussion for Tuesday's game versus the Red Wings.

  • Capitals' Riley Barber: Promoted to top level

    The Capitals recalled Barber from AHL Hershey on Friday.

    Barber has been pretty productive in the minors this season, racking up eight goals and 18 points in 20 appearances. The Capitals only had 12 healthy forwards on their roster prior to Barber's promotion, so he'll likely round out their depth up front until Tom Wilson (concussion) is cleared to return.
