  • Predators' Zac Rinaldo: Makes signing with Preds official

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/2/18) Rinaldo has officially signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Predators. He will make $650,000 in the NHL and $300,000 in the AHL.

    The two-way aspect of Rinaldo's contract alone is damaging to his fantasy prospects, as the Predators can freely shuffle him between the organization's ranks. Worse yet, he's only accumulated 34 points (14 goals, 20 assists) over 328 games, and not until his 53-game run with the Coyotes last season did Rinaldo average more than 10 minutes per contest. We would only consider taking a chance on Rinaldo if he cracks the Opening Night roster and you find yourself desperate for hits; he's averaged 3.3 hits per game through six years of service time between the Flyers, Bruins and Coyotes.

    Predators' Zac Rinaldo: Heading to Nashville in free agency

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/30/18) Rinaldo is set to sign a two-way contract with the Predators, Andy Strickland of Fox Sports Midwest reports.

    Being able to reunite with coach Peter Laviolette is believed to have been a key selling point for Rinaldo and his decision to head to Nashville. Those two bonded in Philadelphia before Laviolette was fired in 2013-14. Rinaldo -- who ended up staying in Philly one year longer than the bench boss -- has accrued 1,107 hits over 328 career contests between the Flyers, Bruins, and Coyotes, but he doesn't have the offensive chops necessary to make a serious fantasy impact.

    Coyotes' Zac Rinaldo: Posts lackluster offensive numbers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/26/18) Rinaldo finished the 2017-18 season having totaled just five goals and seven points in 53 games.

    Rinaldo has never exceeded nine points in a single campaign, so he isn't a viable option in the vast majority of season-long fantasy leagues. He did, however, rack up 188 hits in 2017-18, but that was only good for 24th-best in the NHL, so he doesn't even have much value in leagues that reward the physical side of the game.

    Coyotes' Zac Rinaldo: Looks ready to play

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/17/18) Rinaldo (upper body) is not listed among the scratches on the NHL.com roster report for Saturday's home game against the Wild.

    As expected, the bottom-six center will hit game ice against a Minnesota club with pretty good odds of pinning down a playoff spot. Rinaldo is a gritty player, as evidenced by his 159 hits through 44 games, but he's yet to exceed nine points in a single campaign between the Flyers, Bruins and Coyotes. As a result, he's probably left alone in just about any fantasy setting.

    Coyotes' Zac Rinaldo: Probable, officially game-time decision

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/17/18) Rinaldo (upper body) will likely play in Saturday's game against the Wild, but he officially remains a game-time decision, Craig Morgan of NHL.com reports.

    Considering Rinaldo's fantasy value ties mainly to hits (159), he doesn't warrant ownership in the vast majority of season-long leagues. The 27-year-old winger appears set to return Saturday, however, so those interested should check back closer to the game for news on his status.
