Korbinian Holzer: Won't be back with Nashville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager David Poile confirmed Tuesday that the Predators will not be re-signing Holzer this offseason, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

Nashville traded Matt Irwin and a 2022 sixth-round pick to the Ducks in order to bring Holzer in at the trade deadline, but he only ended up appearing in three games with the Preds, going scoreless while posting a minus-1 rating over that span. On the season, the 32-year-old blueliner totaled four points in 49 games split between Anaheim and Nashville. He'll likely garner some interest from clubs looking to add depth this offseason, but he won't be a useful fantasy option as a stay-at-home defenseman skating in a limited role.

Predators' Korbinian Holzer: Packs up for Music City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Predators acquired Holzer from the Ducks for Matt Irwin and a 2022 sixth-round pick Monday, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.

Holzer is a stay-at-home defenseman who has produced four points, 90 hits and 85 blocked shots over 46 games this year. The 32-year-old wasn't a fixture in Anaheim's lineup, and he'll have to battle for ice time with the Predators' strong defensive corps. Holzer is set to be an unrestricted free agent in July.

Ducks' Korbinian Holzer: Solid effort in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holzer posted three hits, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Senators.

After being a healthy scratch in three straight games, Holzer cracked the lineup again and registered a respectable stat line. The 31-year-old blueliner will likely continue floating in and out of the lineup moving forward but won't maintain much fantasy relevance.

Ducks' Korbinian Holzer: Healthy but sitting out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holzer has recovered from a lower-body injury but won't play in Tuesday's game versus the Blue Jackets.

Holzer missed the last two games due to this injury, but now he'll simply serve as a healthy scratch. The 31-year-old has three points through 34 games.

Ducks' Korbinian Holzer: Sitting out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holzer (lower body) won't play in Tuesday's game versus the Blue Jackets, Dan Arritt of reports.

Holzer will miss a third straight game, so Michael Del Zotto will remain in the lineup. The 31-year-old Holzer is still considered day-to-day, and his next chance to return will be Thursday versus the Stars.

Ducks' Korbinian Holzer: Out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holzer (lower body) will not play in Sunday's contest against Nashville.

Holzer has just three points in 34 games this season and has been a healthy scratch at times. There's no timeline for his return, but his next chance to suit up will be Tuesday's game against Columbus.

Ducks' Korbinian Holzer: Battling lower-body injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holzer (lower body) skated before practice and is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Predators, Elliott Teaford of the Orange County Register reports.

Holzer has been a healthy scratch at times this season, so his absence wouldn't shake up the Ducks' defensive outlook. We likely won't know his official status until warmups commence at 9:30 p.m. ET.

Ducks' Korbinian Holzer: Pots first goal of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holzer scored a goal on his only shot and added three hits, two blocked shots and a plus-1 rating in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Golden Knights.

His first tally of the year came when he chipped the puck over Marc-Andre Fleury amid a tangle of sticks and skates in front of the net before the Vegas goalie could locate it. Holzer has already tied his career high with 34 games played this season and is well on his was to recording triple digits in hits (71) and blocked shots (66), but the depth blueliner has only three points to show for it.

Ducks' Korbinian Holzer: Mixed bag in overtime win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holzer recorded a shorthanded assist, four hits and three shots in Friday's 2-1 overtime win over the Canucks.

Holzer had the outlet pass to Rickard Rakell, who then served Jakob Silfverberg for the goal. However, Holzer was also responsible for the Canucks' lone goal, as Adam Gaudette's centering pass deflected off the German defenseman's skate and behind John Gibson. The helper is Holzer's first point of the year, to go with 32 hits, 31 blocked shots and 11 PIM in 13 appearances.

Ducks' Korbinian Holzer: Being used sparingly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holzer has gone scoreless while averaging 16:40 of ice time in four games this season.

Holzer will once again provide veteran leadership on the back end for the Ducks in 2019-20, but his unpredictable playing time and lack of offensive upside will keep him off the fantasy radar in all formats.

Ducks' Korbinian Holzer: Inks extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holzer signed a one-year extension with the Ducks on Thursday.

In four seasons with Anaheim, Holzer appeared in 99 games and recorded 14 points (three goals, 11 assists) and 211 hits. The German saw his playing time increase in 2018-19, averaging 16:04 of ice time per game, the highest he's seen since 2014-15 with Toronto.

Ducks' Korbinian Holzer: First goal, last game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holzer potted a goal on two shots and added three hits and two blocked shots in Friday's 5-2 win over the Kings.

Had he not found twine, it would have been Holzer's second straight year without scoring. He ends with four points, 61 hits and 38 blocks in 22 games this season. Holzer has never played more than 34 games in a campaign, and never registered more than seven points, as his usage is typically defensive in nature.

Ducks' Korbinian Holzer: Prioritizes defense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holzer has one assist in eight games since he returned from a personal leave.

Naturally, Holzer has always been known for his defense, never posting more than seven points in a season. He does have 21 hits and 13 blocked shots in that eight-game span, but remains safe to avoid for fantasy purposes.

Ducks' Korbinian Holzer: Quiet in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holzer (personal) delivered two hits in 13:29 in Monday's 4-0 loss to the Canucks.

Holzer has appeared in only three games for the Ducks this season, with one assist, six hits and three blocked shots to his name. Skating on the third pairing for the lowest-scoring offense in the league, the blueliner is used more for his defense than his offense.

Ducks' Korbinian Holzer: Recalled to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holzer (personal) was called up from AHL San Diego on Sunday.

Holzer missed some time this month for personal reasons and was sent down to the minors to clear up a roster spot. Hopefully this recall means that he's ready to get back in action.

Ducks' Korbinian Holzer: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ducks sent Holzer (personal) to AHL San Diego on Wednesday.

Holzer had left the team for personal reasons, so the Ducks decided to use the roster spot for Max Jones instead. It's unclear whether Holzer will report to AHL San Diego or if he will continue to tend to his own matters.

Ducks' Korbinian Holzer: Rejoins squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holzer (personal) was back with his teammates Tuesday, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.

The German blueliner still isn't listed on the team's roster, so it's unlikely that he'll dress for Wednesday's tilt against Vancouver. In the meantime, Anaheim will likely continue with the same defensive unit used Saturday in Philadelphia and update Holzer's condition when the information becomes available.

Ducks' Korbinian Holzer: Leaves team for personal reasons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holzer has left the Ducks for personal reasons.

The update from the Ducks' official Twitter page is short on specifics, so it's unclear how long Holzer will be away from the team. Jaycob Megna's filling in on the Ducks' blue line Tuesday.

Ducks' Korbinian Holzer: Returns to NHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ducks recalled Holzer from AHL San Diego on Thursday.

Holzer missed extended time to begin 2018-19 after undergoing offseason wrist surgery, but his promotion from the minors could signal that he will play for the Ducks to begin the second half. It's also possible that he will be sent back to the minors following the break when the team recalls some of the players it sent packing Wednesday.

Ducks' Korbinian Holzer: Sent down a level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holzer was assigned to AHL San Diego on Sunday.

The German winger had offseason wrist surgery and has yet to play at any level this season. Apparently he's healthy as he cleared waivers in order to be sent to the minors. In 16 NHL games last season, Holzer was held without a point while registering a minus-3 rating.
