Goloubef signed a one-year, two-way contract extension with the Senators on Tuesday.
Goloubef spent most of his time in the minors last season, notching 24 points in 46 games, and will have a similar, if not identical, role with the Senators in 2019-20. There's no reason for fantasy owners to have the 29-year-old blueliner on their radars.
Goloubef was reassigned to AHL Belleville on Friday.
Called up to Ottawa on Thursday, Goloubef was able to log one shot on goal and six hits over 14:37 of ice time in a win over the Blues. He should be able to join Belleville's push for the playoffs, as it currently holds the final spot in the North Division.
Goloubef was brought back to Ottawa on Thursday.
Even though AHL Belleville currently occupies the last playoff spot in the North Division, Goloubef received the promotion, meaning he'll be with Ottawa the rest of the season. At 29 years old, the Senators are likely going to use this time to find out whether Goloubef can help them in their rebuild or if they're better off looking elsewhere. Fantasy owners should have no such concerns; Goloubef isn't valuable enough to be on their rosters at this point, even if he gets a chance in Ottawa.
Goloubef was returned to AHL Belleville on Monday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
All four players returned Monday are likely to be part of Belleville's push to the playoffs, and this move keeps the minors squad eligible for that. He'll likely be called up to Ottawa if Belleville misses the postseason or gets eliminated quickly.
Goloubef was called up from AHL Belleville on Sunday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
The 29-year-old was called up days after the Senators dealt some key pieces in Matt Duchene and Ryan Dzingel. Goloubef will be in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Flames, replacing Cody Ceci.
Goloubef was returned to AHL Belleville on Friday.
With trade rumors swirling all around Ottawa, the Senators have returned Goloubef and Darren Archibald to the minor league in favor of highly touted forward prospects in Drake Batherson and Logan Brown. Goloubef has only appeared in three NHL games for the Senators this season, and the blueliner is still looking for his first point with the rebuilding club. It would be easy to find a better alternative to Goloubef in the fantasy realm.
Goloubef was recalled from AHL Belleville on Thursday.
The veteran blueliner was recalled to provide defensive depth after fellow defenseman Mark Borowiecki (foot) returned to Ottawa while the team is on a four-game road trip. Goloubef has 130 games of NHL experience under his belt, but shouldn't be looked at as a viable fantasy option after posting a total of 23 points in those contests.
The Senators sent Goloubef back to AHL Springfield on Friday.
Goloubef drew into his first NHL game of the season Thursday against the Ducks. He proved to be a physical presence with three hits and also sacrificed his body to the tune of four blocked shots. It wasn't enough to keep him with the top club and could also signal that Christian Jaros (undisclosed) is nearing a return to the lineup.
Goloubef was recalled from AHL Belleville on Wednesday.
Goloubef will likely serve as an emergency depth option with Christian Jaros (undisclosed) expected to be out until Tuesday against Carolina. If the 26-year-old Goloubef does slot into the lineup during his stint in the NHL, it will likely come at the expense of Ben Harpur or Mark Borowiecki.
Goloubef was brought in by Ottawa from Boston in exchange for Paul Carey.
Goloubef hasn't played in the NHL since the 2016-17 campaign when he was with the Avalanche. In 16 minor-league contests with Providence, the defenseman tallied three goals, nine helpers and 27 PIM, but that wasn't enough for the 29-year-old to break into the Bruins lineup. He should have a better chance of earning minutes with Ottawa.
The Bruins have signed Goloubef to a one-year, two-way contract, the team's official site reports.
Goloubef, whose deal carries an NHL cap hit of $650,000, spent last season with AHL Stockton, logging eight goals and 20 points in 48 games. The 28-year-old has 129 games worth of NHL experience under his belt, but the right-shooting blueliner profiles as an organization depth option for the Bruins.
Goloubef signed a two-way contract with the Flames on Sunday that will take him to the end of this season. He's been waived for reassignment to AHL Stockton.
The Flames had a chance to get a closer look at Goloubef, as he represented Team Canada at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics and took home a bronze medal. Now 28 years old, the defenseman was originally selected by the Blue Jackets with a second-round (37th overall) draft pick. He's provided only two goals and 21 assists through 129 NHL contests split between Columbus and Colorado, so fantasy owners shopping for help on the virtual blue line should look in another direction.
Goloubef was cut by the Sabres on Saturday, The Buffalo News reports.
Goloubef was unlikely to make the team given the amount of depth the Sabres have on the blue line this season, and will be forced to look for employment elsewhere. The Sabres will carry eight defensemen to start the season.
Goloubef will attend Buffalo's preseason training camp, TSN reports.
The 27-year-old defenseman spent time with the Columbus and Colorado organizations in 2016-17, finishing the campaign with five assists in 33 NHL contests. Goloubef has never been particularly productive throughout his career, recording a meager 23 points in 129 games, and he'll have to beat out the likes of Casey Nelson, Justin Falk and Taylor Fedun in order to make the team.
Goloubef has a single point in his last 17 games and a total of three this season.
The lack of production from the defenseman isn't at all surprising considering he had just 18 points across 96 games with the Blue Jackets heading into this season. In fact, Goloubef didn't even suit up for Columbus this year before being traded to the Avs on Nov. 28, and it's clear that -- even though he's averaged 18:04 with his his new team -- the change of scenery hasn't done much for his fantasy prospects.
Goloubef pitched in an assist Saturday in a 3-2 overtime loss to San Jose.
The depth defender has laced up the skates just 15 times this season, so it's not really surprising he's recorded a mere three points (all assists). Furthermore, the former Blue Jacket has never put up more than nine points in a season at the NHL level, nor has he played in more than 43 contests, so he's not likely to be relevant for fantasy purposes anytime soon.
Goloubef picked up a pair of assists over 14:24 of ice time in Tuesday's 6-3 win over Calgary.
That's very slender ice time for a defenseman, but it's pretty much in line with Goloubef's usage of late. He's a third-pairing guy at best who often lands in the press box as the seventh defenseman, leaving the 27-year-old with basically no fantasy value.
Goloubef was called up from the minors Monday, Terry Frei of The Denver Post reports.
Goloubef, who was recently acquired via trade, could be called into action right away due to the injury to Erik Johnson (leg). The 27-year-old has yet to appear in an NHL contest this season, but has registered eight points in 18 outings in the AHL. If Fedor Tyutin (lower body) is unable to suit up, Goloubef figures to slot into the Avs lineup Tuesday against Nashville.
Goloubef was traded to the Avalanche on Monday in exchange for Ryan Stanton.
Neither player has suited up for NHL action this season and will immediately join their new club's AHL affiliate. Goloubef had 18 points over 96 career contests with Columbus and was a second-round draft selection by the Jackets in 2008.
Goloubef will be sent to AHL Cleveland having cleared waivers Friday, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports.
Goloubef is known as a smart, well-rounded defenseman, but he has yet to pin down a full-time role in the NHL. Returning to the minors is great for his development, as he's bound to see much more ice time than he would as a spare part for the parent club.
