Avalanche's Jayson Megna: Re-ups in Colorado
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna signed a one-year contract with the Avalanche on Saturday.

When injuries piled up with the big club last season, Megnas was called up and played in eight games but didn't record a point. The 30-year-old likely will end up with AHL Colorado to begin the upcoming season after he posted 18 goals and 16 assists over 43 games with the team last season. If injuries pop up again, however, Megna could be one of the first recalls due to his experience.

Avalanche's Jayson Megna: Heading down to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna was reassigned to AHL Colorado on Friday, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.

Megna has no points, 10 hits and five blocked shots in eight appearances for the Avalanche this season. His demotion to the minors indicates one of the Avalanche's five injured forwards may be nearing a return.

Avalanche's Jayson Megna: Records two blocks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna posted a minus-1 rating with two blocks and a hit in a 3-2 victory against the Flames on Tuesday.

The 29-year-old continues to be pointless and hasn't recorded an NHL point since playing with the Canucks in 2016-17. He has a minus-1 rating, seven hits and four blocks in seven games.

Avalanche's Jayson Megna: Added from AHL ranks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Avalanche summoned Megna from AHL Colorado on Friday.

Megna lasted just two days in the minors before the Avs came calling for his services again. Even if he draws into Saturday's game against the Blue Jackets, there's very little to find appealing about his fantasy profile. Through four appearances with the big club this season, he's averaging just 5:19 of ice time and has yet to record a point.

Avalanche's Jayson Megna: Shipped to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Avalanche assigned Megna to AHL Colorado on Wednesday, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.

The team announced it will recall a replacement at some point Wednesday. Megna suited up in four games for the Avalanche during this stint and averaged 5:18 of ice time. He'll continue playing a veteran role in the minors where he has three goals and an assist in seven games last season.

Avalanche's Jayson Megna: Called up to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Avalanche recalled Megna from AHL Colorado on Tuesday.

Mikko Rantanen and Gabriel Landeskog are both dealing with long-term lower-body injuries and Colin Wilson won't be available for Wednesday's matchup with Florida due to an undisclosed issue, so Megna will likely make his season debut against the Panthers and then stick with the big club until Rantanen or Landeskog is ready to return. The 29-year-old hasn't appeared in an NHL contest since he logged one game with the Canucks in 2017-18, so he can be ignored in all fantasy formats.

Avalanche's Jayson Megna: AHL bound
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna was waived by the Avalanche for the purpose of reassignment Monday, A.J. Haefele of reports reports.

Megna hasn't played in the NHL since the 2017-18 season when he suited up for one game with the Canucks. The 29-year-old tested his luck with the Avalanche to start the year but couldn't fit the mold. He's was an impressive minor-league asset for AHL Hershey last year, posting 43 points over 71 games. Megna will start the season with AHL Hershey if he clears waivers.

Avalanche's Jayson Megna: Headed to Mile High City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna signed a one-year, two-way contract with Colorado on Tuesday.

Megna was unable to break into a game for the Capitals last season, but offers some decent experience having played in 113 NHL contests. The 29-year-old will likely start the year in the minors with AHL Colorado, but could earn a promotion or two during the 2019-20 campaign.

Capitals' Jayson Megna: Heads back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna was reassigned to AHL Hershey on Sunday, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Megna was placed on waivers ahead of the season, but the Capitals opted to keep him up with the parent club even after he'd passed through unclaimed. However, with no clear path to playing time at the top level, the American winger heads back to the team's top developmental affiliate.

Capitals' Jayson Megna: Designated for waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna was placed on waivers by Washington on Wednesday, but won't be immediately sent down to the minors.

Understandably, the team would like to get this procedural move out of the way now and determine if it will need to pursue other options to replace Megna if he gets claimed. Considering the 28-year-old has 113 games of NHL experience in which he tallied 10 goals and 10 helpers, it wouldn't come as a shock to see another club snatch him up.

Capitals' Jayson Megna: Pots goal Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna recorded a goal during Friday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Hurricanes.

Megna scored nine seconds after Carolina had taken a two-goal lead midway through the second period. With Travis Boyd (lower body) at risk of missing the start of the season, the door is open for the journeyman forward to make the Capitals out of camp, but Megna may be headed back to the minors before too long and therefore doesn't possess much fantasy relevance even in deeper leagues.

Jayson Megna: Inks one-year deal Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna was signed to a one-year, two-way deal by the Capitals on Sunday

Megna recorded four goals and 13 points in 25 games with AHL-Utica during the 2017-18 season. The 27-year-old forward is expected to spend most of 2018-19 in the minors and won't garner fantasy relevance unless he can crack the NHL ranks.

Canucks' Jayson Megna: Assigned to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna was sent down to AHL Utica on Sunday.

After totaling just eight points in 58 games with the Canucks last season, Megna has appeared in just one game this year. It seems that the 27-year-old forward will be used sparingly from here on out, making his fantasy value virtually nonexistent.

Canucks' Jayson Megna: Called by Vancouver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna was recalled from AHL Utica on Sunday.

The Canucks were carrying only 12 healthy forwards prior to the move, so it's unclear whether Megna will be providing depth or if he'll find his way into the lineup for Monday's matchup with Dallas. It will be interesting to see if any injury news comes out of Canucks camp prior to the game, though if Megna is forced into action, he won't offer much from a fantasy standpoint.

Canucks' Jayson Megna: Sent to waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna was waived by the Canucks on Sunday, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

Originally acquired as a free agent in July of 2016, Megna posted a mere eight points in 58 games with Vancouver last season, plus he connected on less than six percent of his shots while averaging 12:26 of ice time. He's clearly an organizational depth forward at this juncture.

Canucks' Jayson Megna: Will return and signs extension Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna (upper body) will rejoin the lineup for Sunday's matchup with the Sharks, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports. Additionally, he signed a one-year, one-way contract extension with the Canucks on Sunday.

Megna returns to action after missing the last five games with the ailment and is projected to skate on Vancouver's third line Sunday. He's been mostly unproductive this season, notching just eight points in 53 games, but apparently that was good enough to earn him another year with the Canucks.

March 29, 2017 07:56 PM
Canucks' Jayson Megna: Still not in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna (upper body) will miss a fourth consecutive game Tuesday against the Ducks.

Megna has just two points in his last 26 games while averaging 13:23 of ice time, and that alone could be reason to steer clear in most fantasy formats. He remains without a timetable for return.

Canucks' Jayson Megna: Unlikely to play before Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna is dealing with an upper-body injury, leaving him doubtful to play in the three remaining games on the Canucks' road trip, which ends Sunday.

Given that Joseph Cramarossa (foot) is also ailing, the Canucks may have to decide between calling up a reinforcement from the minors or temporarily moving one of their seven active defensemen to the forward position for Thursday's road game against the Blues. Chances are good that you haven't been relying on Megna for fantasy purposes anyhow; the guy has just eight points and a minus-4 rating in 53 games.

Canucks' Jayson Megna: Scores fourth goal of campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna scored a third-period goal and logged 14:35 of ice time during Thursday's win over Columbus.

Megna snapped a seven-game point drought Thursday, and he's also been a healthy scratch twice since he last hit the scoresheet Jan. 12. Vancouver averages just 2.3 goals per game, so as long as Megna is skating in a bottom-six role, he offers next to no fantasy value.

Canucks' Jayson Megna: Will play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna (illness) will play Friday against Florida, Irfaan Gaffar of Sportsnet reports.

After missing Tuesday's game due to illness, the winger will be back on the ice Friday. He has averaged 11:42 minutes per game this year, but in his last seven that output has risen to 15:02. That said, he has only scored six points in 28 games, so he doesn't have much value in most fantasy leagues.
