Hendricks will call it a career after 11 NHL seasons, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
Hendricks was drafted by the Predators in the fifth round of the 2000 NHL Draft after a four-year collegiate career with St. Cloud State. The 38-year-old would go on to log 607 NHL games for Colorado, Washington, Nashville, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Minnesota, in which he racked up 54 goals, 62 assists and 1394 hits. With his playing days behind him, the center will join the Wild in a player development role.
Hendricks tallied an assist in Saturday's win over Nashville.
Hendricks has appeared in just two games since joining the Jets at the trade deadline and is averaging a meager 10:14 of ice time when he is in the lineup. Without a consistent role with the team, the winger is unlikely to offer much in terms of fantasy value.
Hendricks was traded from Minnesota to Winnipeg for a seventh-round pick Monday, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.
Hendricks missed nine of Minnesota's last 10 games before being traded to his former team in the latter stages of deadline Monday. The 37-year-old has played in just 22 games this season, picking up a pair of helpers along the way. Don't expect the veteran to log much time with his new team, but nonetheless, it's a nice reunion for hockey fans to smile about after Hendricks put up 13 points a season ago as a member of the Jets.
Hendricks will sit as a healthy scratch Thursday against the Rangers, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
It looked like Hendricks was set to make his return following a three-game absence due to an upper-body injury, but the recently recalled J.T. Brown was able to make it to the rink in time for puck drop and will take the veteran forward's spot in the lineup.
Hendricks (upper body) is in the projected lineup for Thursday's game against the Rangers, NHL.com's Dan Rosen reports.
Hendricks received clearance to practice Tuesday, which was the first indication that he might be an option Thursday. The 37-year-old veteran, who's notched two assists in 22 contests this campaign, will slot into a bottom-six role against New York.
Hendricks (upper body) was cleared to practice, but won't play in Tuesday's game against Anaheim, Jessi Pierce of The Athletic reports.
The 37-year-old suffered the injury Feb 12. and hasn't been able to see the ice since. Though Hendricks is closing in on a return, he's not a fantasy asset whatsoever, compiling just two points in 22 games this campaign.
Hendricks (upper body) will not suit up for Sunday's game against the Blues, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
Hendricks has now missed 10 of the last 14 games and hasn't scored a point since mid-January. With just two assists this season, the 37-year-old is providing nearly no fantasy value.
Hendricks is dealing with an upper-body injury that will keep him out of the lineup versus the Devils on Friday, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Hendricks has frequently served as a healthy scratch this season, which has limited him to just 22 appearances. Without a consistent spot in the lineup, combined with the fact he is averaging just 8:59 of ice time when he does play, the winger won't offer much in terms of fantasy value even once given the all-clear.
Hendricks left Tuesday's loss to the Flyers with an undisclosed injury and didn't return, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Coach Bruce Boudreau had no update on Hendricks' condition after the game. Left wing Victor Rask was also hurt in this game, leaving the Wild strapped for depth if either miss time. Hendricks will be evaluated Wednesday, and there will likely be recalls from AHL Iowa if this issue lingers.
Hendricks will suit up in Tuesday's home game against the Flyers, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
After being healthy scratched the last three games, Hendricks will center the fourth line. He's hardly a fantasy asset, however, as the 37-year-old has two points in 21 games this season.
Hendricks has tallied just one assist over six of 14 possible games for the Wild since the new year.
Although Hendricks dealt with an "undisclosed" injury earlier in the campaign, he's been healthy and hasn't been able to emerge from the press box as much as he'd hoped since the new year. The 37-year-old is averaging just 8:28 of ice time per game in the six games he's suited up in since Jan. 3, showing he has no real fantasy value for the remainder of the season.
Hendricks isn't a lock to emerge from the press box even with Eric Fehr's (undisclosed) status up in the air, Sarah McLellan of the Star Tribune reports.
McLellan relayed from coach Bruce Boudreau that the Wild could recall a different forward from AHL Iowa ahead of Tuesday's road game against the Bruins. Hendricks is not a viable fantasy option having only played in 15 of a possible 41 games this season.
Hendricks (undisclosed) has shaken his injury but will be scratched for Sunday's game versus the Blues, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
Hendricks being healthy allowed the team to reassign Matt Read to AHL Iowa. The 37-year-old has zero points in six games this year and remains far from the fantasy realm.
Hendricks (undisclosed) won't play Friday against Anaheim.
Hendricks will miss a second consecutive game and remains without a timetable for his return to action. The veteran pivot can be considered out indefinitely until he's able to return to practice with his teammates.
Hendricks (undisclosed) won't play Thursday against the Kings, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Hendricks wasn't able to practice Wednesday or Thursday, so this news doesn't come as much of a surprise. At this point, the veteran pivot should be considered questionable at best for Friday's game against the Ducks.
Hendricks (undisclosed) took a maintenance day Wednesday and is considered questionable for Thursday's game against the Kings, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Hendricks is reportedly just dealing with "bumps and bruises," so although his issue doesn't appear to be overly serious, it may force him to miss Thursday's contest. If he's unable to go, the Wild will likely recall a forward from their minor-league affiliate to take Hendricks' spot in the lineup.
Hendricks (lower body) is in the lineup for Tuesday's game versus the Sharks, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
Hendricks wasn't expected to play until Thursday, but Eric Staal is missing the game with an illness. The 37-year-old has played just five contests this season and has yet to record a point.
Hendricks (lower body) will probably return Thursday against the Kings, according to head coach Bruce Boudreau.
This effectively rules out Hendricks for Tuesday's game against the Sharks, but at least it gives us some sense of when to expect him to return. Of course, the 37-year-old had 13 points all of last season, and three shots in five games this year, so his return won't move the fantasy needle.
According to coach Bruce Boudreau, Hendricks (lower body) could return to action at some point during the Wild's upcoming five-game road trip.
While this news is rather vague, it does suggest Hendricks should be ready to return to action within the next week. Another update on the veteran forward's status should surface once he's officially cleared to play.
Hendricks (lower body) was able to skate Saturday morning, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Hendricks appears to be making a big step in his recovery from a lower-body injury. It's been 11 days since the bottom-six pivot was hurt in a contest against the Coyotes, but he remains on the active roster versus injured reserve to perhaps signal his issue is not severe. An early November return seems like the most realistic target for Hendricks.
