Wild's Matt Bartkowski: Signs one-year pact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bartkowski put pen to paper on a one-year, two-way contract with the Wild on Thursday.

Bartkowski played just one game for Minnesota this season, logging 9:59 of ice time in the team's final playoff contest. With AHL Iowa, the 32-year-old blueliner tallied two goals and 16 helpers in 55 outings. The veteran figures to continue playing primarily in the minors in a leadership role, though he could get the occasional promotion to the big club.

Wild's Matt Bartkowski: Sent back to bus league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Wild reassigned Bartkowski to AHL Iowa on Monday.

Bartkowski was called up on an emergency basis for the Wild ahead of their Feb. 28 game against the Blue Jackets. The 31-year-old will head down to the AHL, where he's produced 18 points in 55 AHL appearances this campaign.

Wild's Matt Bartkowski: Promoted to top level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minnesota promoted Bartkowski from AHL Iowa on Friday.

The Wild only had six healthy defensemen on their roster prior to Bartkowski's promotion, so he'll be on hand as an emergency option for Friday's clash with Columbus. The 31-year-old American has picked up 18 points in 55 AHL appearances this season.

Wild's Matt Bartkowski: Heading down to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bartkowski was reassigned to AHL Iowa on Friday.

Bartkowski was up with the parent club to serve as depth while Carson Soucy (illness) was out. Per Michael Russo of The Athletic, Soucy may be ready to return Sunday versus the Avalanche. If not, Bartkowski will likely rejoin the team in Minnesota, although it's unlikely he'll draw into the lineup.

Wild's Matt Bartkowski: Summoned by big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minnesota recalled Bartkowski from AHL Iowa on Thursday.

Carson Soucy is under the weather, so Bartkowski will be on hand as an insurance policy for Thursday's clash with the Canucks. The 31-year-old blueliner will return to the minors as soon as Soucy is deemed fit to play.

Wild's Matt Bartkowski: Sent to bus league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minnesota assigned Bartkowski to AHL Iowa on Thursday.

The Wild activated Greg Pateryn (groin) off injured reserve in a corresponding move, so they're no longer in need of Bartkowski's services as a depth defenseman. The 31-year-old will likely spend the rest of the campaign in the minors.

Wild's Matt Bartkowski: Promoted to top level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minnesota recalled Bartkowski from AHL Iowa on Tuesday.

The Wild have a few defensemen dealing with minor injuries ahead of Thursday's clash with Calgary, so Bartkowski will be on hand as an insurance policy. In all likelihood, the 31-year-old journeyman will return to the minors after sitting as a healthy scratch against the Flames.

Wild's Matt Bartkowski: Inks two-way deal with Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bartkowski signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Wild on Tuesday.

Bartkowski essentially spent the entirety of the 2018-19 campaign in the minors, notching four goals and 19 points while posting a plus-11 rating in 70 contests. The 31-year-old blueliner is nothing more than an organizational depth option at this stage in his career and will carry zero fantasy value in 2019-20.

Wild's Matt Bartkowski: Dropped down a level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bartkowski was assigned to AHL Iowa on Monday.

Bartkowski scored a goal during his two-game stint with the big club before heading back down to the minors. His demotion suggests that Nick Seeler (upper body) will likely be set to play in the team's next game in Toronto on Thursday.

Wild's Matt Bartkowski: Heads to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Wild recalled Bartkowski from AHL Iowa on Saturday.

Bartkowski has 253 career NHL games under his belt, but he has spent the whole season in the minors, recording nine points in 28 games. The veteran blueliner could slot into Saturday's game versus the Jets with Mathew Dumba (pectoral) out for three months and Nick Seeler (undisclosed) considered questionable.

Wild's Matt Bartkowski: Waived by Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bartkowski was waived by the Wild on Saturday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

Bartkowski failed to record a point through five preseason games with the Wild, even though he was heavily featured by means of averaging 20:42 of ice time. He'll head to AHL Iowa in the likely event that he passes through waivers unclaimed.

Wild's Matt Bartkowski: Secures two-way deal with Wild
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bartkowski agreed to a one-year, two-way deal with Minnesota worth $650,000.

The 6-foot-1 Pittsburgh native scored just one goal and five points in 42 games with Calgary over the last two seasons. Bartkowski has posted a pair of 18-point campaigns in his NHL career but has watched his playing time slowly disappear, averaging just 13:21 of ice time in 18 games last season.

Flames' Matt Bartkowski: Picks up helper in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bartkowski tallied an assist and fired six shots on goal in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Coyotes.

The 29-year-old blueliner has been a healthy scratch more often than not this season, so although his performance against Arizona was definitely noteworthy, it shouldn't be viewed as a sign of things to come.

Flames' Matt Bartkowski: Continues to frequent press box
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bartkowski has only dressed for one of the past 18 games after watching Sunday's 3-2 win over the Islanders from the press box.

Bartkowski has only suited up for 14 games all season, so he's off the fantasy radar in all settings. Additionally, even if he were to draw into the lineup consistently, he hasn't proven to be a serviceable asset in the past when given a legitimate opportunity.

Flames' Matt Bartkowski: Healthy scratches piling up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bartkowski has been a healthy scratch for 18 of the past 19 games after watching Sunday's 6-1 win from the press box.

The Flames continue to slot Brett Kulak in as their sixth defenseman, and at this stage of the game, it appears that Bartkowski will likely need an injury to return to the lineup. He's obviously off the fantasy radar for the time being, but it's worth reminding that the 29-year-old blueliner probably won't make much of a splash when he does see game action again.

Flames' Matt Bartkowski: Frequenting press box of late
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bartkowski has only dressed for three of the past 11 games.

With Brett Kulak becoming a fixture on the blue line, Bartkowski has been pushed out of the lineup whenever Calgary has had a healthy defense corps dating back to late October. Bartkowski was never a viable fantasy option in most settings anyway, but the lack of playing time has him completely off the grid for the time being.

Flames' Matt Bartkowski: On bench Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bartkowski will be a healthy scratch for Saturday's home game against the Wild, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

Bart's struggled to get going on either side of the rink, as evidenced by his box-score goose eggs and minus-2 rating over seven contests. You can ignore him in just about any setting other than leagues that put a premium on hits, which is where his bread and butter lies.

Flames' Matt Bartkowski: Logs just 11:30 of ice time in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bartkowski received just 11:30 if ice time during Thursday's 2-1 loss to Carolina.

The depth defenseman has averaged only 12:05 of ice time for the season, and he's now posted a minus-1 rating in each of the past three games. Bartkowski has failed to register a point through seven outings, and his five shots, 11 hits and six blocked shots aren't moving the fantasy needle, either.

Flames' Matt Bartkowski: Nets first goal of the season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bartkowski scored his first goal of the season in Saturday's overtime win over the Blues.

The third-pairing defender isn't known for his offense -- Bartkowski has just two points this season in 17 games and 44 in 228 games over the last seven seasons.

Flames' Matt Bartkowski: Inks permanent deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bartkowski agreed to terms on a two-year, two way deal with the Flames on Thursday, Kristen Odland of Postmedia reports.

Just a day after signing a professional tryout agreement, Bartkowski penned a deal with Calgary. With the expansion draft coming this summer, some teams are in a crunch to find players that meet the requirements for being eligible for selection. The 28-year-old will fill that gap for the Flames, which could give him the chance to showcase his abilities and earn a spot with the Golden Knights. In the meantime, the signing puts Calgary over the 23-man roster limit, so the team will need to send somebody down to the minors, with Brett Kulak the leading candidate.
