Predators' Erik Gudbranson: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson (undisclosed) is expected to return to the lineup for Monday's game against Carolina, reports.

Gudbranson has missed the last two game but is expected to fill a top-pair role for Monday's tilt. He's averaging 17:07 of ice time with one assist in eight games since joining Nashville.

Predators' Erik Gudbranson: Remains out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson (undisclosed) remains out of the lineup Saturday against the Hurricanes.

Gudbranson will miss Nashville's penultimate game, leaving Monday's rematch with Carolina as his last chance to suit up again in the regular season, though Gudbranson could get a chance to play in the playoffs if the Predators are able to hold off the Stars for the fourth spot in the Central Division.

Predators' Erik Gudbranson: Unavailable Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson (undisclosed) is not on the ice for warmups ahead of Wednesday's matchup with Columbus and will not play, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

With a single point in eight contests with his new club -- and just three in 36 with Ottawa prior to joining Nashville -- Gudbranson doesn't do much to move the fantasy needle on a regular basis. His next chance to return will come Friday against the visiting Hurricanes.

Predators' Erik Gudbranson: Predators debut on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson (not injury related) is expected to make his Predators debut in Saturday's game versus the Hurricanes, Thomas Willis of the Predators' official site reports.

Gudbranson has completed his quarantine after being traded from Ottawa on Monday. The 29-year-old is expected to skate with Ben Harpur on the third pairing. Through 36 games with the Senators this season, Gudbranson posted three points, 92 hits and a minus-13 rating.

Predators' Erik Gudbranson: Heads to Music City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Predators acquired Gudbranson via trade from the Senators on Monday for prospect Brandon Fortunato and a 2023 seventh-round pick, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.

Injuries have torched the Predators' blue line, and Gudbranson will help patch up that unit. The 2010 third overall pick has endured a decline in his performance in recent years, but he'll bring a veteran presence with 554 NHL games in his ledger, recording 21 goals and 55 assists in the process. The 29-year-old could make his Predators debut as soon as Tuesday's game versus the Lightning. According to Thomas Willis of the Predators' official site, Gudbranson's not expected to play until next week.

Senators' Erik Gudbranson: Will play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson (personal) will be available versus Edmonton on Thursday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Gudbanson has played in just one of the team's last seven contests, in part due to his personal absence. Considering the defender is pointless in his last 12 appearances, fantasy players will probably want to consider alternative options on the blue line.

Senators' Erik Gudbranson: Still unavailable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson (personal) won't play in Wednesday's game against the Oilers, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

Gudbranson left the Senators' road trip Monday because his wife was expecting the birth of their child. The 29-year-old blueliner is still out, and there's no clear timeline for his return to action.

Senators' Erik Gudbranson: Heads back to Ottawa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson (personal) won't play in Monday's road game versus the Jets, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Gudbranson's wife is expecting the birth of their child soon, so he departed the road trip early. It's unclear how long he'll be out, but the 29-year-old could be back in action for Wednesday's home matchup against the Oilers.

Senators' Erik Gudbranson: Pots first goal of 2020-21
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson collected a goal on two shots and was plus-3 in a 6-1 win over the Flames on Thursday.

Gudbranson beat David Rittich with a shot through traffic from the top of the right circle, giving Ottawa a 2-0 lead midway through the first period. It was Gudbranson's first goal in an Ottawa uniform and his first in over a calendar year. The 29-year-old, suiting up for his fifth NHL franchise, has three points in 22 games with a rough minus-12 rating.

Senators' Erik Gudbranson: Picks up assist Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson posted an assist, four blocked shots and two PIM in Sunday's 8-5 loss to the Oilers.

Gudbranson has ascended to a second-pairing role with Thomas Chabot and Christian Wolanin sidelined with lower-body injuries. The 29-year-old Gudbranson made the most of it in Sunday's game, earning his second assist of the year. He has a minus-7 rating, 27 hits, 23 blocked shots and eight PIM through nine outings.

Senators' Erik Gudbranson: Posts helper in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson recorded an assist, three blocked shots and two hits in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Jets.

Gudbranson's assist on an Evgenii Dadonov goal was the former's first point in five games as a Senator. It's been a tough start to the year for the 29-year-old Gudbranson -- he has 16 hits, 12 blocked shots, six PIM and a minus-5 rating. He had only nine points in 51 games between the Penguins and the Ducks last year. Skating in a third-pairing role isn't going to give Gudbranson many opportunities to contribute in 2020-21.

Senators' Erik Gudbranson: Traded to Ottawa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ducks traded Gudranson to the Senators on Wednesday in exchange for a fifth round pick in the 2021 NHL Entry Draft.

Gudbranson will likely fill a bottom-pairing role for the Senators. The 28-year-old blueliner notched nine points in 51 games last season.

Ducks' Erik Gudbranson: Healthy for 2020-21
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson (upper body) will be ready for next season according to general manager Bob Murray.

Gudbranson started the year with the Penguins but was traded to Anaheim back in late October. With the Ducks, the 27-year-old logged 20:02 of ice time per game in which he notched four goals, five assists and 76 hits. Given his limited offensive upside, fantasy owners shouldn't be butting heads with each other to select Gudbranson ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

Ducks' Erik Gudbranson: Out two more weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson (upper body) is expected to miss another two weeks, Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Gudbranson has already missed the last seven games since being placed on injured reserve on Feb. 9, and this news will rule him out for roughly another seven. The 6-foot-5 blueliner has four goals and nine points in 44 games with the Ducks this season.

Ducks' Erik Gudbranson: Still one week away
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson (upper body) will need at least another week before getting back into the lineup. Coach Dallas Eakins told reporters, "Gudbranson is coming along very good, he'll be evaluated here in the next few days and hopefully we'll see him on the ice in a week or so."

Gudbranson has already missed the Ducks' last four contests and will be sidelined for at least the next three based on the timeline provide by Eakins. With just nine points in 51 appearances this season, the blueliner won't offer much in terms of offensive production once cleared to play, which limits him to a mid-range fantasy option at best.

Ducks' Erik Gudbranson: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ducks placed Gudbranson (upper body) on injured reserve Sunday, Kyle Shohara of the Ducks' official site reports.

Gudbranson was already ruled out of Sunday's game against Buffalo and was sent back to Anaheim for re-evaluation. His placement on IR signals that the defenseman will miss at least a week, so his next chance to suit up is next Sunday against Vancouver. In the meantime, recent call-up Brendan Guhle will draw into the lineup.

Ducks' Erik Gudbranson: Won't play in Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson (upper body) won't be in the lineup for Sunday's game against Buffalo and has been sent back home for re-evaluation, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.

Gundbranson left Friday's game against Toronto in the first period, and as evidenced by this news, he could be dealing with something significant. In his stead, Brendan Guhle, Korbinian Holzer and Josh Mahura are all candidates to replace Gundbranson in the lineup. Expect the team to update the 28-year-old's status ahead of Tuesday's game against St. Louis.

Ducks' Erik Gudbranson: Injured in first period Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson suffered an upper-body injury and is questionable to return to Friday's game against the Maple Leafs, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.

Per Stephens, Gudbranson was injured on a hit in the first period. The defenseman skated just 3:35 over four shifts prior to his exit. If he's unable to return Friday, there should be an update on his status before Sunday's game in Buffalo.

Ducks' Erik Gudbranson: Gathers shorthanded assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson notched a shorthanded helper, a fighting major, three shots on goal and two hits in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Sharks.

Gudbranson set up Ondrej Kase's second-period tally. Then, in the third period, Gudbranson dropped the gloves with Sharks winger Evander Kane. The busy performance gave the defenseman nine points, 93 PIM, 81 hits and 69 shots through 45 games this season between the Ducks and the Penguins.

Ducks' Erik Gudbranson: Slings helper Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gudbranson registered an assist and two shots on goal in Sunday's 5-4 shootout win over the Predators.

Gudbranson now has seven points through 38 contests. The 27-year-old has added 54 shots on goal, 86 PIM and 68 hits this season. His lack of offense will keep most fantasy owners away.
