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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Megna will not suit up for Tuesday night's matchup with the Predators after coming down with the flu.
Apparently there's a bug going around the Canucks' locker room, per Sportnet's Irfaan Gaffar, but apparently Megna is the only one that will be held out Tuesday because of it. The Florida native will have three days to rest up before Canucks play the Panthers on Friday. In the meantime, Reid Boucher will make his Vancouver debut.
Megna notched two primary assists and a plus-3 rating in Thursday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Flyers.
This pretty much came out of nowhere, as the 26-year-old winger had managed just a single point in his prior 15 contests. Megna's minutes have risen recently and he does see some power-play time, but with only six points on the year and negligible peripheral contributions, it's hard to imagine a fantasy format where he comes in handy.
Megna scored a pair of goals on three shots and went plus-3 in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Lightning.
He potted more goals Thursday than he had in the last two seasons put together, so this was quite the out-of-nowhere effort for Megna. The 26-year-old has contributed decently at the AHL level, but he's a fringe NHLer -- he'll remember this night for a long time, as performances like this one are extremely rare for Megna.
Megna notched a first-period goal and played a season-high 16:04 during Friday's loss to Dallas.
It was just Megna's fifth game of the season and third since returning from a stint on injured reserve, so it's difficult to evaluate just how big of a role he'll have with Vancouver going forward. He averaged just 6:51 of ice time through his previous two games. However, he's unlikely to garner enough offensive looks to make a difference for our fantasy purposes.
Megna (undisclosed) is no longer on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.
This move from IR seems to match up with the timeline of Megna's injury and bodes well for his chances of playing Saturday against the Blackhawks. It'll be worth seeing where the 26-year-old American slots into the lineup if he does return, but he almost certainly won't be in the top six so most fantasy players can move along.
Megna (undisclosed) is expected to rejoin the lineup within the next couple days.
Megna has played in just two games this season, suffering an injury quickly after being recalled from the team's AHL affiliate. Even when healthy, Megna isn't a heavy contributor and isn't guaranteed a full-time roster spot with Vancouver. Still, with other bodies sidelined, he may temporarily keep his spot with the Canucks upon return.
Megna (undisclosed) is on Vancouver's injured reserve list according to the NHL's official media site.
With a two week timetable outlined for Megna's return, this move makes sense so that the Canucks could replace him on their active roster. Either way, Megna's absence won't be earth-shaking for Vancouver or fantasy players.
