  • Wild's Ian McCoshen: Heads to bus league

    McCoshen was cut by the Wild on Monday and reassigned to AHL Iowa.

    McCoshen joined the Wild this offseason after signing a one-year, two-way pact with the club. Despite not playing in the NHL since 2018-19, the 25-year-old blueliner has registered four goals, three helpers and 115 hits in 60 career games. McCoshen figures to spend the bulk of his time in the minors this season, but he could get an opportunity during the year should injuries or illness occur.

  • Wild's Ian McCoshen: Grabs one-year pact

    McCoshen signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Wild on Monday.

    McCoshen hasn't played in the NHL since 2018-19 when he was with the Panthers. In his 60 NHL contests, the 25-year-old blueliner registered four goals, three helpers and 115 hits. With Minnesota, McCoshen figures to spend significant time in the minors but could get an opportunity during the year when injuries inevitably strike.

  • Blackhawks' Ian McCoshen: Sent down to Rockford

    McCoshen was sent down to AHL Rockford on Monday.

    McCoshen was with the big club to serve as defensive depth, but the team is sending him down to make room for goaltender Kevin Lankinen while Robin Lehner battles flu-like symptoms. Should further injuries strike on the blue line, expect McCoshen to be near the top of the list of possible call-ups for Chicago.

  • Blackhawks' Ian McCoshen: Joining big club

    McCoshen was called up from AHL Rockford on Friday.

    McCoshen's call-up came after Duncan Keith suffered a groin injury in Friday's game versus the Avalanche. Matthew Highmore was reassigned in a corresponding move. McCoshen will likely just serve as defensive depth while with the Blackhawks.

  • Blackhawks' Ian McCoshen: Dished to Windy City

    McCoshen was traded to Chicago from Florida in exchange for Aleksi Saarela on Tuesday, Chris Kuc of The Athletic reports.

    McCoshen had yet to stick in the NHL level with the Panthers, playing in just 98 games with the club the past three seasons, and accumulating 16 points. The 24-year-old will head to AHL Rockford following the trade, and faces a tough task to make the big club with a young defensive core in Chicago.

  • Panthers' Ian McCoshen: Hits waivers

    McCoshen was placed on waivers Wednesday, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.

    For the past three seasons McCoshen has split his time between the Panthers and their AHL affiliate, and it looks no different this year. A second-round pick in 2013, McCoshen played in 19 games last season with the Panthers, collecting two points.

  • Panthers' Ian McCoshen: Lands one-year deal

    McCoshen inked a one-year, two-way contract with Florida on Monday.

    McCoshen saw action in just 19 games for the Panthers last season, in which he recorded one goal, one assist and 15 shots while averaging a meager 13:19 of ice time. In the minors, the 23-year-old notched nine assists and 49 PIM in 38 contests. Without a guaranteed spot on the 23-man roster, McCoshen won't offer much in terms of fantasy value this season, though his limited offensive upside likely makes him a low-end option anyway.

  • Panthers' Ian McCoshen: Earns qualifying offer

    McCoshen was handed a qualifying offer by the Panthers on Tuesday.

    Since joining Florida out of college, McCoshen has consistently been a fringe player on the 23-man roster, splitting time between leagues. The 2013 second-round pick saw action in a mere 19 games this season, in which he notched a pair of points. The 23-year-old won't ever be an offensive stud, which limits his fantasy value even in deeper formats that factor in hits and blocks.

  • Panthers' Ian McCoshen: Sits again

    McCoshen was back in the press box during Tuesday's 6-1 loss to the Canadiens.

    The 23-year-old stepped into his first game in 22 days on Monday, as Mark Pysyk missed a game due to the birth of his child. McCoshen ended up collecting his first assist of the season, but finishing a minus-2. He was back in the press box when Pysyk returned to the team for Tuesday's contest.

  • Panthers' Ian McCoshen: Sees diminished ice time

    McCoshen skated only 9:02 in a season-low 12 shifts during Sunday's 3-2 loss to Ottawa.

    After being called up from the AHL in mid-January, McCoshen hasn't been given much responsibility, only averaging 13:21 in ice time over 18 games. Head coach Bob Boughner began to increase that number during February, peaking at 20:05 against Arizona on Feb. 26, before falling down to single digits Sunday. Once Mackenzie Weegar (lower body) is healthy, McCoshen might find himself in the press box for a few games.

  • Panthers' Ian McCoshen: Bumped back to NHL

    McCoshen was recalled from AHL Springfield on Thursday.

    McCoshen was sent down to the minors prior to the All-Star break in order to get some additional ice time. With Bogdan Kiselevich joining the Thunderbirds, it will be a battle between McCoshen and Josh Brown for a spot on the Panthers' third pairing.

  • Panthers' Ian McCoshen: Loaned to minor-league club

    The Panthers loaned McCoshen to AHL Springfield on Tuesday.

    McCoshen was one of three young players loaned to Springfield as the Panthers look to give all the opportunity to play regularly during the NHL All-Star break. It's expected the defenseman will rejoin Florida in advance of its next contest Feb. 1 versus the Predators. The 23-year-old has appeared in just four games for the parent club this season, totaling no points, five hits and two blocked shots across 13:01 of ice time per contest.

  • Panthers' Ian McCoshen: Heading up to Florida

    McCoshen was recalled from AHL Springfield on Monday, Jameson Olive of the Florida Panthers' official site reports.

    McCoshen lost a roster battle this preseason, getting sent down to the AHL. This is his first call-up, but we will have to see if he actually suits up or ends up being a healthy scratch. The latter was often the case for the 23-year-old last season.

  • Panthers' Ian McCoshen: Bumped down to minors

    McCoshen was reassigned to AHL Springfield on Monday, George Richards of The Athletic reports.

    McCoshen appears to have lost out on a roster spot to Jacob MacDonald and could face an uphill battle to return to the NHL. The club likely wants to get the 23-year-old some game action, considering he logged a mere 40 games last year split between the AHL and NHL, instead spending much of the year watching from the press box.

  • Panthers' Ian McCoshen: Healthy scratch often in 2017-18

    McCoshen scored three goals and one assist in 38 games in 2017-18.

    McCoshen was often the seventh man out on Florida's blue line, as he sat out four games to an upper-body injury and was a healthy scratch for the other 39 missed games. It's not a good sign for McCoshen to be playing less than 40 games at 22 years old, but he brings a physical aspect -- 71 hits this season -- that will hopefully boost him into a roster spot when defensemen MacKenzie Weegar and Alex Petrovic become free agents this summer.

  • Panthers' Ian McCoshen: Watching next game from press box

    McCoshen is expected to be a healthy scratch Tuesday evening versus the visiting Maple Leafs, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

    The American defenseman is a solid source of hits and blocked shots, as he's amassed 63 and 40 of those, respectively, through 34 games this season. However, his minus-11 rating has been a drag for a team that is on the outside looking in regarding the playoff picture. He'll reportedly be replaced by MacKenzie Weegar.

  • Panthers' Ian McCoshen: Records helper Thursday

    McCoshen tallied an assist and logged 12:25 of ice time during Thursday's 3-2 comeback win over the Capitals.

    The assist is actually the first helper for McCoshen in 33 games this season, giving him a total of four points on the season. Needless to say, the lack of production and inconsistent playing time significantly handicap his fantasy upside even in deep leagues.

  • Panthers' Ian McCoshen: Back in NHL

    McCoshen was promoted from AHL Springfield on Monday, Matthew DeFranks of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    McCoshen's return to the NHL was always expected, as the demotion was just to keep him active during the All-Star break. The defenseman will likely return to the press box, considering he has played in just two of the Panthers' previous 12 outings.

  • Panthers' Ian McCoshen: Returns to AHL Springfield

    McCoshen was sent back to AHL Springfield on Thursday.

    The Wisconsin native sat out the past five games, as the the Panthers seem more comfortable depending on MacKenzie Weegar on the third pair. Consequently, McCoshen should be left toiling on the virtual waiver wire.

  • Panthers' Ian McCoshen: Relatively quiet Tuesday

    McCoshen (upper body) tallied just two shots on goal, one hit and one block in his first game back from injury against the Wild on Tuesday.

    McCoshen logged 18:57 of ice time following his four-game stint on the sidelines -- significantly higher than his season average of 15:40. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, the 22-year-old is not a lock for the lineup on a night-to-night basis and could periodically find himself serving as a healthy scratch.
