  • Ducks' Urho Vaakanainen: Pens two-year extension

    Vaakanainen signed a two-year contract extension with the Ducks on Friday. Vaakanainen appeared in 29 top-level contests split between the Bruins and the Ducks last season, picking up six helpers while averaging 19:19 of ice time per game over that span. The 23-year-old defender will likely have a regular spot in Anaheim's lineup next year, but he likely won't produce enough offense to be a viable fantasy option.

  • Ducks' Urho Vaakanainen: Struggles after March trade

    Vaakanainen posted just two assists and a minus-5 rating in 14 games with the Ducks after he was traded from the Bruins. Vaakanainen had four assists in 15 outings with the Bruins this year. His role was more stable with the Ducks, but the downgrade in the quality of his teammates likely contributed to lesser offense. The Finn added 27 hits, 28 blocked shots and 27 shots on net in 29 appearances. Still 23 years old, Vaakanainen will likely get a chance to further establish himself at the NHL level next season after he signs a new contract as a restricted free agent.

  • Ducks' Urho Vaakanainen: Debut on hold

    Vaakanainen (undisclosed) won't play Monday against the Predators, but coach Dallas Eakins added that the recently acquired defenseman is healthy enough to take contact, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports. Vaakanainen participated in an optional skate Monday, and it sounds like he could be ready to make his Ducks debut once he gets a full practice under his belt. Anaheim has an off-day Tuesday, so it's possible the former Bruin could be ready to play as soon as Wednesday against the Blackhawks.

  • Bruins' Urho Vaakanainen: Not on road trip

    Vaakanainen (undisclosed) is not on the Bruins' road trip and has yet to resume skating, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports. Vaakanainen seems unlikely to return during the road trip given that he isn't practicing. With the Finn sidelined, expect Derek Forbort, Connor Clifton and Jack Ahcan to compete for two spots on the third pairing. Vaakanainen probably won't be back before March 7 versus the Kings.

  • Bruins' Urho Vaakanainen: Late scratch Monday

    Vaakanainen was held out of Monday's matchup with Colorado after he "wasn't feeling right" during warmups according to coach Bruce Cassidy, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports. Vaakanainen took part in warmups before coming off early and being replaced in the lineup by Connor Clifton. Given the fact that the Finn is pointless in his last 10 appearances and is still looking for his first goal of the season, few fantasy players were likely impacted by his late scratch.

  • Bruins' Urho Vaakanainen: Activated off IR

    Vaakanainen (face) was activated off injured reserve Thursday, per the NHL's media site. Vaakanainen has missed the last four games while dealing with a facial injury. The 23-year-old has averaged 19:10 of ice time and generated four assists over 13 NHL games this season.

  • Bruins' Urho Vaakanainen: Available if needed

    Vaakanainen (face) is reportedly "in the mix" to resume playing according to coach Bruce Cassidy but won't be in the lineup against the Rangers on Tuesday. It's a pretty vague designation from Cassidy on the 23-year-old Vaakanainen's status considering the blueliner is still on injured reserve. The impending return of Matt Grzlecyk (upper body) is no doubt a factor as well. Even if the Bruins decide to activate Vaakanainen off IR ahead of Tuesday's contests, fantasy players should be expecting him to sit out as a healthy scratch.

  • Bruins' Urho Vaakanainen: Listed on injured reserve

    Vaakanainen (face) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, per CapFriendly. Vaakanainen was injured last Tuesday in the Bruins' 3-2 win over the Kraken.

  • Bruins' Urho Vaakanainen: Still not skating

    Vaakanainen has yet to begin skating after sustaining a facial injury before the All-Star break, Joe Haggerty of BostonHockeyNow.com reports, Considering Vaakanainen hasn't gotten onto the ice, he should be expected to miss at least Tuesday's clash with the Penguins, though it certainly could be longer. Connor Clifton should step into the lineup with Vaakanainen on the shelf Given his lack of offensive upside, he's pointless in his last eight contests, Vaakanainen's absence will likely go unnoticed by the majority of fantasy players.

  • Bruins' Urho Vaakanainen: Exits Tuesday's contest

    Vaakanainen (upper body) will not return to Tuesday's game versus the Kraken. Vaakanainen was hit by Yanni Gourde in the second period, prompting some fisticuffs between the teams. The 23-year-old Vaakanainen has become a semi-regular presence in the lineup, so this is a noticeable loss for the Bruins. Their next game is next Tuesday versus the Penguins.
