Scott Gomez: Ends NHL career
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomez announced his retirement Thursday, NHL.com reports.

After a 16-year career bouncing around with seven different teams, Gomez has decided to retire as a Senator. The former Calder Trophy winner produced 10 consecutive 45-plus point campaigns between 1999 and 2009, including laying claim to the Stanley Cup twice with New Jersey (2000 and 2003). The prolific centerman finishes his career with 181 goals and 575 assists in 1,079 regular-season games.

Senators' Scott Gomez: Veteran finishes with just nine points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomez finished the 2015-16 season with a goal and eight assists in 34 games.

Gomez was signed by Ottawa in early March after spending a decent chunk of the season with St. Louis. Unfortunately, the 36-year-old never panned out, picking up just one assist in 13 appearances with the squad, eventually ending his campaign with an undisclosed injury. The veteran should not be on fantasy radars for next year.

Senators' Scott Gomez: Will miss season finale against Bruins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomez (undisclosed) will not be in the lineup against Boston on Saturday, Dean Brown of TSN1200 reports.

An injury-plagued campaign for Gomez comes to an end without him being able to score a goal in an Ottawa uniform. In fact, in 13 contests with the Senators, the journeyman center garnered one measly assist. It could be the end of the road for the 36-year-old, who once netted 84 points in a season, but has seen his production drop off dramatically. If he does return, fantasy owners may want to hold off on utilizing him until he can show he still has something left in the tank.

Senators' Scott Gomez: Will miss game Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomez will be off the depth chart against the Penguins on Tuesday with an undisclosed injury.

Gomez has potted just one goal in 21 outings with the Blues this season, adding a pedestrian eight helpers. Since joining the Senators, his production has gotten even worse, as the center has garnered a lone assist. With the playoffs out of reach, it's unlikely that the Senators will be affected by Gomez's absence, nor will fantasy owners miss him from their lineups.

Senators' Scott Gomez: Will play against Tampa Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Dave Cameron confirmed that Gomez will be in the lineup Thursday against the Lightning, Chris Stevenson of TSN 1200 reports.

Gomez will replace Matt Puempel, who will be a healthy scratch for Thursday's matchup. The 36-year-old veteran has spent time on six different teams up until the signing with Ottawa on Wednesday, and while he has had a very nice career, a sudden rejuvenation with the Sens is unlikely.

Senators' Scott Gomez: Signed by Senators
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomez was signed by Ottawa for the rest of the regular season Wednesday, Dean Brown of TSN1200 reports.

Gomez was brought in to replace the injured Kyle Turris (ankle), but would be ineligible for the playoffs if the Senators were able to snag a spot. The veteran center played in 21 games for the Blues earlier this season where he garnered one goal and seven assists, but was let go by St. Louis in late December. A fantastic player earlier in his career, the 36-year-old's production has tapered off dramatically.

Blues' Scott Gomez: Placed on unconditional waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomez has been placed on unconditional waivers.

Gomez was waived by the Blues on Tuesday and ended up clearing, but evidently assigning the 36-year-old to the minors was not in the cards. "When we went down with all those injuries (early), he was good," Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said Tuesday. "It's not fair for him to come and play a role he's never played before. Hopefully somebody picks him up and he can play a Top-6 or Top-9 role and have that support. With (Kyle) Brodziak back in, and obviously (Patrik) Berglund coming back in, he's a player that would just be waiting for injury and that could sometimes be a long wait."

Blues' Scott Gomez: Clears waivers Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomez has cleared waivers, Renaud Lavoie of Montreal's TVA Sports reports.

Gomez was more valuable to the Blues early in late October, when a number of forwards were bitten by the injury bug. Of course, even when he was on the ice, Gomez averaged just 11:15 of ice time and that made it difficult for the 36-year-old to retain fantasy value. St. Louis has the option of assigning him to the AHL, but it's worth noting that he's never been placed at that specific level of play.

Blues' Scott Gomez: Placed on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomez has been placed on waivers, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

The 36-year-old center has tallied just eight points this season, providing select spot minutes for the Blues. He could wind up in the minors if no teams put a claim in for his services.

Blues' Scott Gomez: Has two helpers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomez picked up two assists in the Blues 4-0 win over Nashville on Saturday.

Gomez is nothing but a role player at this point in his career and will see very little time as either a top six forward or on the power play.

Blues' Scott Gomez: Health scratch Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomez appears to be the odd man out of the lineup for Tuesday night's game against the Kings, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Gomez will take a seat with the Blues set to welcome back offensive stalwart Vladimir Tarasenko (undisclosed). Having recorded one goal, two assists and a plus-2 rating through seven games, Gomez is proving to be an adequate injury fill-in for the 8-2-1 Blues. But "scratch" is a nasty word in the fantasy realm, so consider alternatives until he can find his way back into the lineup.

Blues' Scott Gomez: Delivers game-winning goal Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomez put the puck past Tampa Bay's Ben Bishop on Tuesday night, leading the Blues to a 2-0 win.

As a result of various injuries to the Blues' forwards, Gomez has seen an uptick in playing time recently. The 35-year-old spent just over 12 minutes on the ice Tuesday, which counts as bottom-six minutes but seems like a lot compared to the 7:14 he picked up in his Blues debut Oct. 17. While his best years are far away in the rearview mirror, Gomez does have the ability to pick up points in a hurry as he's had four campaigns of 70 points or more between the Devils and Rangers in his career.

Blues' Scott Gomez: Impresive showing Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomez recorded an assist and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's win over the jets.

Gomez received 9:39 TOI in what was his second game of the season. The Alaskan native earned a roster spot as a tryout in training camp and figures to keep geting playing time with talented rookie center Robby Fabbri on injured reserve with a concussion. Gomez can still get the job done, as evidenced by 34 points in 58 games with the Devils last season.

Blues' Scott Gomez: Potential start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomez or Scottie Upshall may play in Tuesday's game for the Blues in place of the injured Robby Fabbri, Andrew Allsman of kmov.com reports.

A Gomez start would be his first in a St. Louis uniform. The 35-year-old center may have a chance to prove that the seasoned player's NHL career is not ready to end just yet.

Gomez provided the team's lone goal in Monday's 3-1 loss to the Kings.Gomez has managed just seven goals, but he's quietly recorded 30 points in 49 games thanks to 23 assists. While the 35-year-old is clearly no longer in his prime years, he's been able to work his way on to the score sheet regularly enough to merit some consideration in deeper leagues.

Gomez collected two assists in Friday's win over Buffalo.Skating on the top line with Steve Bernier and Adam Henrique, Gomez is now up to 29 points in 47 games. While his best years are behind him and he's managed just 54 shots on goal all season ,the 35-year-old is showing he can still put up points. He has 11 points in his last 17 games, so if you're looking for a decent assist man in a deeper league, Gomez could be your guy.

Gomez dished out a pair of assists in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Flyers.Gomez has had some trouble finding the back of the net himself, but he's still been productive as he's added nine helpers in 15 games. The 35-year-old's late start to the season has limited him to just 42 games, but he's been able to contribute on a regular basis with 26 points and over 17:00 worth of ice time per game.

Gomez (flu) is questionable for Friday's game against the Bruins.After Gomez missed morning skate, Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello said the veteran center is "very questionable". If Gomez can't go, both Michael Ryder and Martin Havlat figure to join the lineup, following Thursday's trade of Jaromir Jagr to the Panthers.

Gomez notched his fifth goal of the season in Monday's 3-0 win over the Coyotes.While it was just his first goal since Jan. 9, Gomez has been heating up lately as he's gotten on the scoresheet in three straight and five of his last six. The 35-year-old has been working at a consistent pace since signing in December as he's grabbed 23 points in just 36 games, and could be worth a look in deeper leagues while he's rolling.
