Top Alexander Volkov News

  • Ducks' Alexander Volkov: Lands on waivers

    Volkov was waived by the Ducks on Wednesday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.

    Volkov produced a solid eight points in 18 games after he was traded from the Lightning last year, but it appears he'll begin 2021-22 with AHL San Diego. The 24-year-old should be a top candidate for a call-up if injuries arise among the Ducks' forwards, assuming he passes through waivers unclaimed.

  • Ducks' Alexander Volkov: Another multi-point outing

    Volkov scored a goal and dished an assist in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Sharks.

The 23-year-old Volkov has four tallies and an assist in seven games since he was traded from the Lightning to the Ducks. He's at 10 points, 28 shots on net, 32 hits and a plus-5 rating through 26 contests overall, but he's been put in more of a position to succeed in Anaheim.

  • Ducks' Alexander Volkov: Scores in Anaheim debut

    Volkov netted a goal on two shots and added four hits in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Coyotes.

    Volkov opened the scoring at 16:06 of the first period in his Ducks debut. The 23-year-old forward is up to six points in 20 contests split between the Ducks and the Lightning this year. He saw third-line usage Friday, but Volkov will likely be given plenty of chances to push into a top-six role if he can pile up points with his new team.

  • Ducks' Alexander Volkov: Activated from non-roster list

    Volkov (COVID-19 protocol) was taken off the non-roster list and placed on the active roster Thursday, per CapFriendly.

    This move bodes well for Volkov making his Ducks debut Friday versus the Coyotes. He'll likely be limited to bottom-six work initially. The Russian forward had five points in 19 games with the Lightning before he was traded to the Ducks on March 24.

  • Ducks' Alexander Volkov: Added to protocols list

    Volkov was added to the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list Thursday, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.

    Volkov will have to quarantine for seven days before joining the Ducks after being traded by Tampa Bay on Wednesday. The 23-year-old winger has picked up five points in 19 games with the Lightning this season.

  • Ducks' Alexander Volkov: Traded to Ducks

    Volkov was traded to the Ducks on Wednesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports. Antoine Morand and a seventh-round pick in 2023 were sent back to the Lightning.

    Volkov has five points in 19 games this season, but he's been displaced from the Lightning's lineup by Ross Colton. Once Volkov's quarantine has been completed in Anaheim, he'll likely compete for a bottom-six role with the Ducks.

  • Lightning's Alexander Volkov: Lights lamp twice in loss

    Volkov scored two goals in Monday's 6-4 loss to the Panthers.

    The 23-year-old winger did what he could to help the Lightning climb out of a deep hole in the second period, lighting the lamp twice in a little over four minutes to make the score 5-3, but Tampa couldn't finish the comeback. Volkov has three goals and four points in the last four games, but his spot on the fourth line makes him a risky fantasy option despite his recent production.

  • Lightning's Alexander Volkov: Secures one-year deal

    Volkov agreed to terms on a one-year, $700,000 contract with Tampa Bay on Wednesday, per agent Dan Milstein.

    The fact that Volkov's contract is one-way in nature is perhaps the most intriguing aspect considering the Lightning are already significantly over the cap and still need to lock up restricted free agent Anthony Cirelli before the start of training camp on Jan. 3. The Lightning's recent spending spree could be an indication Nikita Kucherov (hip) will start the season on long-term injured reserve which may open up a spot in the lineup for Volkov as a bottom-six option.

  • Lightning's Alexander Volkov: Ready for Phase 2 sessions

    Volkov has cleared the two-week quarantine period for overseas arrivals and can begin joining the Lightning at their Phase 2 workouts, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

    Volkov logged nine games for Tampa Bay this season, in which he recorded one assist, seven shots and 10 hits while averaging 10:16 of ice time. The 22-year-old winger spent the bulk of the year playing with AHL Syracuse, where he tallied 30 points in 46 contests, his first time failing to reach the 40-point mark in three minor-league campaigns.

    Volkov was reassigned to AHL Syracuse on Friday.

    Volkov managed one shot, two hits and a minus-1 rating in 10:43 of ice time versus Edmonton on Thursday. The winger heading back to the minors likely means at least one of Anthony Cirelli (lower body), Nikita Kucherov (lower body) or Steven Stamkos (lower body) will be available against the Flyers on Saturday.
