Flames' Byron Froese: Signs two-year deal with Calgary
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Froese signed a two-year, two-way deal with the Flames on Friday.

The 29-year-old forward hasn't suited up in an NHL game since the 2017-18 season with Montreal but he did score 42 points in 46 AHL appearances. He should have an opportunity to earn a bottom-six role in training camp.

Flames' Byron Froese: Pens one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Froese inked a one-year, two-way contract with the Flames on Monday.

Froese was unable to break into an NHL lineup last year, instead spending the entire 2018-19 campaign with AHL Laval and Lehigh Valley. The center put up decent numbers in the minors, as he notched 21 goals and 23 assists in 70 appearances. The 28-year-old could earn his way into a roster spot during training camp, but it certainly isn't a lock and figures to play at least some games with the Heat this season.

Flyers' Byron Froese: Shipped to Philadelphia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Canadiens packaged Froese with David Schlemko to acquire Dale Weise and Christian Folin from the Flyers on Saturday, Frank Seravalli of reports.

The deal essentially moves around some underperforming players with hopes that a change of scenery will inspire some improvement. Froese has yet to make an appearance in the NHL this season, but he has played reasonably well with AHL Laval, notching 14 goals and 16 assists over 46 games. He will likely begin his tenure with the Flyers among the Lehigh Valley ranks.

Canadiens' Byron Froese: Placed on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Froese was placed on waivers by the Canadiens on Tuesday, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

Froese played 48 games for Montreal last season, generating a career-high 11 points for a team desperate for centers. If he clears waivers, Froese will likely end up at AHL Laval.

Canadiens' Byron Froese: Sets new career highs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Froese scored three goals and assisted eight -- both career highs -- in 48 games this season.

Froese joined Montreal prior to the 2017-18 season, signing a two-year contract. Next season, his pact converts to a one-way deal, meaning that he'll likely spend most of the season with the Habs or he'll be waived. Regardless, Froese is a bottom-six forward who offers limited production and shouldn't be owned in nearly any fantasy format.

Canadiens' Byron Froese: Pots goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Froese scored a goal in Tuesday's 6-4 loss to the Devils.

The marker was Froese's third of the season, setting a new career high. The center has appeared in just 41 contests this season -- in which he tallied 11 points -- and could serve as a decent depth option in deeper formats, if he could secure regular minutes. With the season all but over, the 26-year-old will likely see plenty of action the rest of the way in order to allow him to further develop his game.

Canadiens' Byron Froese: Grabs second helper in three games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Froese collected an assist and a two-minute minor penalty in Thursday's 5-3 loss to Philadelphia.

Froese had gone 10 straight without a point before snaring primary assists in two of the last three games. As a center on the fourth line and a penalty-killing staple, there aren't many scoring opportunities for Froese.

Canadiens' Byron Froese: Scores first goal with Canadiens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Froese recorded a goal, an assist and five shots on goal in a 3-2 victory against the Flames on Friday.

The 26-year-old doesn't have impressive numbers, but it's been a very good month for Froese. He started December with a two-point outing, and since then, he has five points, including his first goal of the season, in seven games. That gives him seven points in eight games this month, which is more than he had in his 71 games prior to December.

Canadiens' Byron Froese: Picks up first two-point game with Montreal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Froese gathered two assists in Saturday's 10-1 home win over the Red Wings.

You know life is good for your squad when even fourth-line skaters, like Froese, are scribbling all over the box score. The 26-year-old was the primary distributor on goals that went to Nicolas Deslauriers and David Carr, respectively. Still, don't go thinking that two-point outings will be a new trend for the third-year pivot; Froese doesn't play enough.

Canadiens' Byron Froese: Logs just 9:40 in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Froese recorded two shots, three blocked shots and a minor penalty through just 9:40 of ice time during Monday's 3-1 win over Columbus.

The 26-year-old forward has how failed to record a point in all eight games he's played this season, and Froese has only topped 10 minutes of ice time in a single outing. As a result, he's off the fantasy radar in the majority of settings.

Canadiens' Byron Froese: Recalled from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Froese was recalled by the Canadiens on Tuesday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Froese hasn't played in the big league yet this season. He's replacing Michael McCarron in the lineup, and McCarron has played in seven consecutive games, which bodes well for Froese's chances to crack the lineup.

Canadiens' Byron Froese: Cut from camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Froese was waived by Montreal on Monday.

Froese doesn't provide much from an offensive standpoint, as evidenced by his career output of five points in 62 NHL games. The former Maple Leaf and Lightning signed a two-year deal with Montreal this offseason, and will likely be limited to providing organizational depth from the AHL level -- assuming he goes unclaimed on waivers.

July 2, 2017 01:56 AM
Canadiens' Byron Froese: Signs with Montreal for two years
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Froese agreed to terms on a two-year contract with the Canadiens on Saturday.

Financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed, but we're not expecting a substantial bump over the freshly expired two-year, $1.15 contract that he had with the Maple Leafs. Froese has collected five points in 62 career games between the Buds and Bolts.

Lightning's Byron Froese: Sent down Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Froese was reassigned to AHL Syracuse on Sunday.

The forward has been solid in the minors this year, with 42 points in 50 games, but it hasn't quite transitioned to the NHL, as he's pointless in six games. His reassignment signals that one of the many injured Bolts will likely return soon.

Lightning's Byron Froese: Called up by Lightning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Froese was recalled from AHL Syracuse on Thursday, Erick Eriendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.

It hasn't even been 24 hours since his demotion, but Froese will be headed back to the majors. This seems to indicate that one of the team's two injured forwards -- likely Tyler Johnson (lower body) or Vladislav Namestnikov (lower body) -- has suffered some type of setback and won't be available for Thursday's home matchup against Toronto.

Lightning's Byron Froese: Returns to AHL affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lightning reassigned Froese to AHL Syracuse on Wednesday.

Froese's demotion indicates Tyler Johnson (lower body) or Vladislav Namestnikov (lower body) will likely be ready to return to the lineup for Thursday's game against the Maple Leafs. Froese has notched zero points in four NHL contests this season, and he'll likely remain in the minors unless Tampa Bay is once again in need of reinforcements up front due to injury down the stretch.

Lightning's Byron Froese: Joins big club Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Froese was recalled from the team's AHL Syracuse affiliate Monday, Lightning Insider Erik Erlendsson reports.

Froese was dealt to the Lightning just before the trade deadline, but has sat in the AHL since. He could see action at the top level for just the third time this season Monday, should Tyler Johnson (lower body) be unavailable again, but he's unlikely to provide enough fantasy value for ownership in the vast majority of leagues.

Lightning's Byron Froese: Traded Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Froese and a 2017 second-round pick were sent to Tampa Bay from Toronto in exchange for Brian Boyle on Monday.

Froese played in a mere two games for the Leafs the season and considering the depth of young talent available in Toronto, his prospects for securing regular ice time were likely minimal at best. The center will report to AHL Syracuse, but given the Lightning's propensity for frequent call-ups and send downs, he may get a look before the end of the year.

Maple Leafs' Byron Froese: Sent down to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Froese was sent to AHL Toronto on Monday, Kristen Shilton of TSN reports.

Since being called up Tuesday, Froese didn't get any playing time in either of Toronto's two games. He will be a candidate for a call-up when the Maple Leafs need some forward depth later on in the season.

December 27, 2016 05:20 PM
Maple Leafs' Byron Froese: Joins NHL club Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Froese was recalled from AHL Toronto on Tuesday, James Mirtle of The Athletic reports.

Froese has played in the last two games for the Maple Leafs with the club a bit shorthanded among the forward ranks. After being sent down to AHL Toronto just prior to the holiday, Froese will presumably draw back into the Leafs' lineup again Wednesday against the Panthers.
