  • Kraken's Colin Blackwell: Back on the ice

    Blackwell (lower body) skated before practice Thursday and Friday, Marisa Ingemi of The Seattle Times reports.

    There's still not a very clear timetable for when Blackwell expects to return but he's clearly moving in the right direction. He's still "a ways from getting into sessions with the rest of the group," so he'll continue to be out indefinitely.

  • Kraken's Colin Blackwell: Ruled out indefinitely

    Blackwell (lower body) will be sidelined indefinitely according to coach Dave Hakstol, Marisa Ingemi of The Seattle Times reports.

    Blackwell -- who will start the year on injured reserve -- could have pushed for a top-six role with the newly formed Kraken were it not for his lower-body injury. The team hasn't provided a clearer recovery timeline for the winger but at this point, fantasy players will want to consider alternative options.

  • Kraken's Colin Blackwell: Slated to miss start of season

    Blackwell (lower body) is not expected to be ready for the Kraken's Opening Night game versus the Golden Knights next Tuesday, Bob Condor of the Kraken's official site reports.

    Blackwell has been sidelined for all of training camp with the lower-body injury, and it appears his absence will cost him at least one regular-season game. The 28-year-old would likely slot into a bottom-six role once he's healthy, though it could take him some time to get up to speed.

  • Kraken's Colin Blackwell: Dealing with lower-body injury

    Blackwell (lower body) did not skate at practice Thursday and is considered day-to-day, Alison Lukan of The Athletic reports.

    Blackwell had 22 points in 47 contests with the Rangers last year while averaging 14:00 of ice time. It's unclear when the 28-year-old will be able to get on the ice for practice. He'll compete for a bottom-six role once he's cleared to participate.

  • Kraken's Colin Blackwell: Selected in Expansion Draft

    Blackwell will be selected by the Kraken in Wednesday night's Expansion Draft, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.

    Blackwell became a full-time NHLer for the first time in his career at age 27 in 2020-21, picking up 12 goals, 10 helpers and 64 shots on net while averaging 14:00 of ice time per contest in 47 appearances with the Rangers. The 5-foot-9 forward will likely slot into a bottom-six role for Seattle next season.

  • Rangers' Colin Blackwell: Enjoys breakout season on Broadway

    Blackwell finished the season with 12 goals and 10 assists in 47 appearances.

    Scooped up from the bargain bin last offseason after totaling 10 points in 33 games with the Predators, Blackwell carved out a consistent role with the Rangers and set career highs across the board. He has another year left on his two-year, $1.45 million contract but could draw interest from Seattle in the expansion draft if the Rangers opt not to use a protection slot on Blackwell.

  • Rangers' Colin Blackwell: Suiting up Tuesday

    Blackwell (undisclosed) will play Tuesday against the Sabres, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today Sports reports.

    Blackwell was banged up on a hard fall into the boards when these teams met Sunday, but he's ready to go for Tuesday's rematch. He's expected to skate in what has become his customary spot next to Artemi Panarin and Ryan Strome on the second line.

  • Rangers' Colin Blackwell: Day-to-day but should play Tuesday

    Blackwell (undisclosed) is day-to-day, but coach David Quinn expects him to play in Tuesday's game against the Sabres, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today Sports reports.

    Blackwell lost his balance and fell awkwardly into the boards late in Sunday's win over the Sabres, and his day-to-day status is likely linked to the aftermath of that incident. The 28-year-old Harvard product appeared to be in serious discomfort at the time, but he'll hope that a day off Monday will provide enough time for Blackwell to heal up before Tuesday's tilt. Check back on Blackwell's status before puck drop Tuesday if you're counting on him in fantasy.

  • Rangers' Colin Blackwell: Three-point night in easy win

    Blackwell dished out three assists in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Devils.

    Blackwell continues to thrive in a top-six role on Broadway. His first career three-point game gave Blackwell 10 points in his last 10 games, including six goals. The 28-year-old Harvard product had struggled to hold down a full-time NHL role prior to this season, but now he's skating on a line with superstar Artemi Panarin and making the most of it.

  • Rangers' Colin Blackwell: Opens scoring in rout

    Blackwell recorded a goal and a power-play assist in Tuesday's 8-4 win over Pittsburgh.

    Blackwell got the scoring started with a lucky bounce off a defenseman's skate just 95 seconds in, and he played a hand in Kaapo Kakko's third-period power-play goal, which made it 6-2. The 28-year-old journeyman has been an excellent low-cost signing for the Rangers, producing 10 goals and five assists through 29 games on Broadway.

  • Rangers' Colin Blackwell: Picks up ninth goal

    Blackwell scored a goal on four shots in Thursday's 3-2 overtime win over the Sabres.

    Blackwell got the Rangers on the board 6:40 into the second period, hammering a one-timer from the left dot past Buffalo goalie Dustin Tokarski. It was Blackwell's ninth goal of the season, extending his career high, and his third in the last three games.

  • Rangers' Colin Blackwell: Lights lamp twice in loss

    Blackwell scored two goals in Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Capitals.

    He celebrated his 28th birthday in style, scoring twice in three minutes in the third period to begin a Rangers' rally from a 4-0 deficit. Unfortunately, the team couldn't quite complete the comeback. Blackwell hadn't found the scoresheet in six straight games coming into Sunday, and on the season he has a career-high eight goals and 12 points through 25 contests.

  • Rangers' Colin Blackwell: Moved off Panarin's line

    Blackwell skated 12:57 without a point or shot in Monday's 5-3 win over Buffalo.

    Blackwell started the game on a line with Artemi Panarin and Ryan Strome, but Kaapo Kakko replaced him on that line as the game went along. The move paid off, with Kakko snapping a lengthy goal drought in the second period and adding an empty-netter in the third. As for Blackwell, he has only two points in the last 11 games and will be hard-pressed to get back on track if Monday's demotion to the bottom six proves to be permanent.

  • Rangers' Colin Blackwell: Provides only offense in loss

    Blackwell scored his fifth goal of the season in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Bruins.

    The 27-year-old has stepped up in a big way for the undermanned Rangers in the last couple weeks, scoring four goals and five points over the last six games. Blackwell has looked surprisingly comfortable in a top-six role, but he could lose his spot once Kaapo Kakko (COVID-19 protocols) is finally cleared to rejoin the lineup.

  • Rangers' Colin Blackwell: Rejoins active roster

    Blackwell was promoted from the taxi squad Friday, according to CBS Sports.

    Blackwell has racked up three goals and six points through nine games this season. The 5-foot-9 forward may continue to shuffle between the active roster and taxi squad but his spot in the middle-six appears secure.

  • Rangers' Colin Blackwell: Reverts to taxi squad

    Blackwell was sent to the taxi squad Thursday, per CapFriendly.

    Blackwell has three points in his last five games, so it's a safe bet the 27-year-old is back on the active roster for Friday's game versus the Bruins. He's recently worked his way into top-six minutes and first-unit power-play duties.

  • Rangers' Colin Blackwell: Posts assist Wednesday

    Blackwell recorded an assist and three shots on goal in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Flyers.

    After his call-up from the taxi squad prior to the game, Blackwell actually received a whopping 4:29 on the power play in this one, but he wasn't able to produce with the man advantage. The 27-year-old now has six points in nine games this season and figures to stick around on Broadway as long as he's chipping in offensively.

  • Rangers' Colin Blackwell: Designated for taxi squad

    Blackwell was sent down to the taxi squad Monday, CapFriendly reports.

    Considering Blackwell has been seeing time on the power play in each of his previous two contests, fantasy players should expect him to be recalled to the active roster against the Flyers on Wednesday.

  • Rangers' Colin Blackwell: Scores first career PP goal

    Blackwell scored a power-play goal in Thursday's 3-2 shootout win over the Flyers.

    Getting an opportunity on the second power-play unit with coach David Quinn searching for a spark, Blackwell delivered his first career power-play goal on a deflection from the slot. It was also his second goal in as many games and his third in seven games for the Rangers. Blackwell has fit in well on Broadway and should be a mainstay in the lineup moving forward, but the 27-year-old Harvard product's limited NHL resume prior to this season suggests he'll be hard-pressed to maintain this level of productivity.

  • Rangers' Colin Blackwell: Limited minutes in return

    Blackwell (upper body) had three hits and two hits Friday in a 1-0 loss to Boston.

    Back in the lineup for the first time since Jan. 30, Blackwell logged just under 10 minutes of ice time. The 27-year-old was on a nice run prior to getting hurt, picking up a point in each of his first three full games to go with a plus-3 rating.
