  • Kyle Brodziak: Dished to Detroit

    The Oilers traded Brodziak and a conditional draft pick to Detroit in exchange for Mike Green on Sunday.

    This is simply a cap move for the Oilers to facilitate the acquisition of Mike Green. Brodziak announced his retirement prior to the 2019-20 season due to back injuries. His contract expires at the end of this season.

  • Kyle Brodziak: Hanging up skates

    Brodziak (back) has decided to retire, Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal reports.

    Brodziak was originally selected by the Oilers in the seventh round of the 2003 NHL Draft. The 35-year-old had one season remaining on his two-year deal with Edmonton and was in jeopardy of missing the 2019-20 campaign with a serious back injury. Brodziak will retire having racked up 129 goals and 296 points over a 14-season career.

  • Oilers' Kyle Brodziak: Likely headed to LTIR

    Brodziak is expected to be placed on long-term injured reserve for the entirety of the 2019-20 campaign due to back issues, Mark Spector of reports.

    Brodziak missed the final four games of the 2018-19 campaign due to an undisclosed injury, but at this point it's safe to assume that his back issues are what kept him sidelined. The 35-year-old pivot has one year remaining on his two-year deal with the Oilers, so if he does in fact land on LTIR for the duration of the upcoming season, he'll almost certainly hang up his skates ahead of the 2020-21 campaign. If that ends up being the case, Brodziak will retire having racked up 129 goals and 296 points in a career that spanned 14 seasons.

  • Oilers' Kyle Brodziak: Ends campaign with mystery issue

    Brodziak (undisclosed) didn't accompany the Oilers on the Calgary trip for Saturday's regular-season finale against the Flames, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

    That's a wrap on Brodziak's 2018-19 campaign, with the traditional bottom-six pivot producing six goals and three assists over 70 games. While there are hundreds of NHL players with more impressive attacking-zone totals, Brodziak actually performed at a decent clip considering he was only deployed for 11:42 of average ice time.

  • Oilers' Kyle Brodziak: Dealing with undisclosed injury

    Brodziak (undisclosed) won't play Tuesday against the Avalanche, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

    The severity of Brodziak's undisclosed injury remains a mystery, but it will cost him at least one contest. Either way, there's no reason for fantasy owners to track his availability, as he's only totaled nine points in 70 games this campaign.

  • Oilers' Kyle Brodziak: Pugnacious showing

    Brodziak racked up 17 PIM in Monday's 3-2 overtime win versus the Rangers.

    Brodziak answered the bell after the Rangers' Connor Brickley delivered a check to the head of Oilers defenseman Matt Benning. For his troubles, he picked up an instigator minor and a misconduct in addition to the fighting major. Brodziak has only five goals and three assists in 63 games this season, and the festivities Monday more than doubled his season total in PIM to 31.

  • Oilers' Kyle Brodziak: Completes comeback

    Brodziak's fifth goal of the season was the game-winner in a 4-3 victory over the Sabres on Monday.

    The goal came with only five seconds left in the second period, and it was enough to make the Sabres swap Linus Ullmark out in favor of Carter Hutton to start the third period. Brodziak went 19 games without a goal and 15 skates without a point prior to his tally Monday. The 34-year-old center has been mired on the fourth line in his first season of his second stint with the Oilers.

  • Oilers' Kyle Brodziak: Goal drought drags on

    Brodziak has failed to find the back of the net in eight straight contests.

    Brodziak may struggle to reach the 10-goal mark for the sixth time in the last seven years. Once a 20-goal scorer with Minnesota, the center has failed to produce at that level with St. Louis or Edmonton. With a minimal cap hit ($1.15 million) and changes likely coming for the Oilers, the 34-year-old could find himself on the move ahead of the trade deadline.

  • Oilers' Kyle Brodziak: Snipes twice including winner

    Brodziak scored twice, including the game-winner, in a 4-3 victory over Detroit on Saturday night.

    Brodziak isn't known as an offensive star -- he hadn't gotten a point in 11 games prior to this outburst. Plus he only saw 12:05 of ice time Saturday, the second-lowest of the Oilers' forwards. Still, Brodziak was a dominant force on the ice. Nice night, but it's just a moment in time. He's more valuable on the ice as a penalty killer than he is in fantasy.

  • Oilers' Kyle Brodziak: Minutes crunch

    Brodziak has not recorded a point in 2018-19 and is playing, on average, less than 10 minutes per game.

    The 34-year-old veteran is averaging 9:23 of ice time to this point in the season and has posted a minus-5 rating through 10 games. Brodziak put up 33 points just last season but has failed to follow it up, having whiffed out of the gate to begin 2018-19.

  • Oilers' Kyle Brodziak: Joining Edmonton on two-year deal

    Brodziak agreed to a two-year contract with Edmonton worth around $1 million annually, John Shannon of Sportsnet reports.

    The 34-year-old center is coming off a strong season with St. Louis, netting 10 goals and 33 points in 81 games. Brodziak will provide some needed depth for Edmonton, likely centering a bottom-six line behind Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl. Drafted by the Oilers in the seventh round of the 2003 NHL Draft, the 6-foot-2 Brodziak scored 26 goals and 59 points in 175 games during his first run with Edmonton.

  • Blues' Kyle Brodziak: Could take talents back to Edmonton

    Brodziak, a pending unrestricted free agent, is likely to be reunited with the Oilers, the team that took him in the seventh round of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, Mark Spector of reports.

    Brodziak reportedly has narrowed down his list of potential suitors to three, but a reunion tour with the Oilers could be particularly appealing to him since he's from Edmonton. He appeared in 81 games with the Blues last year, proceeding to register 10 goals, 23 assists and a career-best 52.1-percent win rate in faceoffs. There's probably value in taking Brodziak with a late-round fantasy pick this fall, but be forewarned that he's cemented in a bottom-six role, where it's generally difficult to stay productive offensively.

  • Blues' Kyle Brodziak: Finishes season on high note

    Brodziak posted 10 goals and 33 points in 81 games this season.

    Brodziak may have been the largest beneficiary of center Paul Stastny's trade to Winnipeg. The 33-year-old was promoted from the fourth line to the second line and thrived, racking up one goal and 12 helpers in 19 games. Brodziak had 20 points in the previous 62 games on the fourth line.

  • Blues' Kyle Brodziak: Runs assist streak to three games

    Brodziak set up two goals Friday in a 4-1 victory over Chicago.

    That's five points in his past three games and six in his past five, all in the form of assists, so Brodziak has done a nice job of getting his teammates in position to shine. With one game left and the season on the line, he could be a strong value play to keep your daily team under the cap.

  • Blues' Kyle Brodziak: Dishes two helpers in loss

    Brodziak recorded two assists during Monday's 4-2 loss to Washington.

    This was the 33-year-old forward's second multi-point outing through his past 12 games, and he's up to a respectable nine points -- one goal -- during that stretch. Brodziak has been skating primarily in a top-six role of late, and it's clearly been a boost to his fantasy value. He could be worth a grab in deep seasonal settings or utilized as a source of cap relief in daily contests with St. Louis looking to chase down a playoff berth over the final week.

  • Blues' Kyle Brodziak: Working on second line

    Brodziak had one assist, one hit and a plus-1 rating during 16:47 of ice time in Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Golden Knights.

    Ever since the Blues dished center Paul Stastny to Winnipeg, they've relied on Brodziak to quarterback the second line. Since the trade, the veteran pivot's usage has shot up from an average of 12:20 of ice time per game to 17:18, and it's shown on the scoresheet. Brodziak now has one goal and seven points in the last 10 games, and he's consistently manning a line with Alexander Steen, so the 33-year-old center could be a value option in daily leagues.

  • Blues' Kyle Brodziak: Picks up two points in Saturday's win

    Brodziak scored a goal and an assist while adding two shots and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Kings.

    It's his first multi-point game since the calendar flipped to 2018, as Brodziak had managed to produce only two goals and six points in his last 26 games. His prolonged scoring drought has mirrored the performance of the Blues as a whole, but the 33-year-old has still scored double-digit goals this season for the first time since 2011-12.

  • Blues' Kyle Brodziak: One point in new year

    Brodziak has posted one assist and 13 PIM in 10 games since the calendar flipped to 2018.

    Brodziak isn't on the Blues for his offensive skills, as he starts 70.7 percent of his shifts in the defensive zone. Therefore, the plus-7 rating on the season is a win for Brodziak, but fantasy owners should continue to stay away from this veteran pivot.
