Sharks' Kurtis Gabriel: Cut from training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

San Jose waived Gabriel on Monday, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

Gabriel didn't get into any NHL games last season, but he did make 53 appearances for AHL Lehigh Valley, picking up nine points and 92 PIM. He's 27 years old and has 38 games of top-level experience under his belt, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him end up on the Sharks' taxi squad.

Sharks' Kurtis Gabriel: Signs one-year pact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel inked a one-year deal with San Jose on Monday, per agent Dan Milstein.

Gabriel spent the entire 2019-20 campaign in the minors with AHL Lehigh Valley, where he garnered five goals and three assists. The 27-year-old winger will likely split his time between leagues next season, as well. Even when up with the Sharks, Gabriel may have to settle for a spot in the press box as a healthy scratch, making him a low-end fantasy option even in deeper formats.

Flyers' Kurtis Gabriel: Sent packing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Flyers waived Gabriel (lower body) for the purpose of loaning him to AHL Lehigh Valley on Tuesday, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Gabriel was dealing with a lower-body injury last week, but his demotion to the minors indicates that he's already put that issue behind him. The 26-year-old winger, who notched four points in 22 games with New Jersey last campaign, will spend most, if not all of the upcoming season in the minors.

Flyers' Kurtis Gabriel: Shakes off injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel has been cleared to practice after suffering a lower-body injury, Mike Morreale of reports.

Gabriel suffered the injury during Tuesday's preseason game against the Islanders, and was originally listed as week-to-week. As evidenced by this news, has a real shot to be healthy when the regular season opens Oct. 4. Gabriel is still on the roster bubble with the big club, so this news helps his chances to secure a roster spot.

Flyers' Kurtis Gabriel: Week-to-week with lower-body issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel is considered week-to-week after suffering a lower-body injury in Tuesday's preseason contest, Bill Meltzer of reports.

Gabriel's absence figures to keep him out of action through the remainder of preseason and could carry into the regular season. The winger's injury may also serve to see him start the year in the minors, though he should be atop the list of potential call-ups throughout the campaign.

Flyers' Kurtis Gabriel: Suffers injury Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel suffered a lower-leg injury in Tuesday's preseason game versus the Islanders, Bill Meltzer of reports.

While it's still uncertain exactly what's bothering Gabriel, Meltzer revealed it's an injury to his ankle/foot area. Gabriel is vying for a bottom-six role on the Flyers, so a swift recovery would be ideal for his chances.

Flyers' Kurtis Gabriel: In lineup against Islanders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel (upper body) will play in Tuesday's preseason tilt versus the Islanders, Bill Meltzer of reports.

Gabriel split time between the NHL and AHL last year while with New Jersey, including 22 games with the Devils in which he tallied two goals and two assists. The 26-year-old has never recreated the offensive acumen he showed in juniors, having failed to crack the 20-point mark in any of his six minor-league seasons. Even if he does make the 23-man roster, which is unlikely, he won't offer enough fantasy value to warrant a pickup except in the deepest of formats.

Flyers' Kurtis Gabriel: Inks two-way deal with Philadelphia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel (upper body) signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Flyers on Monday.

Gabriel split time between the NHL and AHL in 2018-19, picking up six points in 32 minor-league games while adding four points in 22 appearances with the Devils. The 2013 third-round pick will likely have a similar role with Philadelphia, so there's no reason for fantasy owners to keep tabs on his status.

Devils' Kurtis Gabriel: Shut down a bit early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel (upper body) won't be available for Saturday's regular-season finale against the Panthers, according to Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site.

This is technically a day-to-day issue for Gabriel, but the Devils won't be making the playoffs, so it's a moot point in the grand scheme of things. An extended offseason should afford plenty of time for Gabriel to shake off the injury. Seventy-eight hits stand as Gabriel's most notable stat over 22 games this season.

Devils' Kurtis Gabriel: Won't play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel (upper body) is expected to miss Thursday's game against the Hurricanes, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

Gabriel has missed the last three games already, so his absence shouldn't impact fantasy owners too much. The 25-year-old has accumulated just four points in 22 games this campaign. In his stead, Nathan Bastian will slot into the lineup.

Devils' Kurtis Gabriel: Out with upper-body injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel will miss Monday's matchup with the Rangers due to an upper-body injury.

Gabriel served as a healthy scratch in three of the Devils' last four contests, so his absence shouldn't impact the majority of fantasy owners. The winger likely would have had an opportunity to play with Kyle Palmieri (lower body) banged up as well, but instead, Nathan Bastian will slot into the lineup.

Devils' Kurtis Gabriel: Tagging back in
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel (undisclosed) will sub in for Nick Lappin -- who will be a healthy scratch -- in Tuesday's game against the Capitals, Mike Morreale of reports.

Apparently, the issue that kept Gabriel from playing against the Avalanche was minor. Still, his primary source of value at this point in time comes in the form of hits -- the Canadian winger has compiled 66 of those through 19 top-level games this season.

Devils' Kurtis Gabriel: Out with minor injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel (undisclosed) will miss Sunday's game against the Avalanche, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

Stein writes that Gabriel is "a little banged up." This doesn't sound like a serious issue, but at any rate, Nick Lappin reportedly will replace him for the upcoming contest.

Devils' Kurtis Gabriel: Participates in fisticuffs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel (illness) earned an assist and fought Milan Lucic as part of a seven-PIM binge in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Oilers.

He also tossed four hits in the contest and took a minor penalty for cross-checking. Gabriel has only four points in 18 games this season, although he also has 53 PIM and 62 hits. He's safe to avoid for fantasy purposes.

Devils' Kurtis Gabriel: Back in there Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel (illness) took part in warmups Wednesday in Edmonton, suggesting that he's over the illness that forced him to miss the Devils' last game, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

Gabriel should be back in a bottom-six role, but fantasy owners likely won't take notice. The physical forward has just four points to go with 85 PIM in 33 career NHL appearances.

Devils' Kurtis Gabriel: Battling illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel is dealing with an illness and didn't play in Tuesday's game versus the Flames, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

The 25-year-old has played in just 31 NHL games since entering the league in the 2015-16 season. He's occasionally a healthy scratch, so his absence from the lineup wasn't unusual until the team released his condition. He'll look to shake off the sickness quickly before Wednesday's road tilt versus the Oilers.

Devils' Kurtis Gabriel: Serves one-game suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel was reinstated following his one-game suspension for boarding Flyer's forward Nolan Patrick.

The Devils might have missed Gabriel, as they lost 1-0 to the Bruins without the winger. The 25-year-old has three points so far this campaign in 14 games. Gabriel is expected to suit up as the fourth-line right wing in Tuesday's game against Columbus.

Devils' Kurtis Gabriel: Will serve one-game suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel will be suspended for one game for boarding Nolan Patrick in Friday's game against the Flyers.

Gabriel previously had no history of delivering questionable hits, which undoubtedly factored into his simple one-game ban. The Devils have summoned Joey Anderson from AHL Binghamton as a potential replacement option for Gabriel on the right wing versus the Bruins on Saturday.

Devils' Kurtis Gabriel: Called to explain questionable hit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel will have a hearing with the NHL's Department of Player Safety for boarding Flyers forward Nolan Patrick in Friday's game.

Gabriel received a five-minute major for boarding, but the player safety governers very well could discipline him to a greater extent since he beelined straight toward Patrick -- who didn't even have control of the puck -- and smashed him into the boards.

Devils' Kurtis Gabriel: Lifted to big club, playing Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel was recalled by the Devils on Monday, per the NHL's official media site.

The Devils were short forwards with Pavel Zacha (upper body) and Jesper Bratt (lower body) sitting out, so Gabriel ascended to the big club. Gabriel has just six points in 32 games with AHL Binghamton this season, so he shouldn't be relied on in fantasy settings. He'll fill in on the fourth line.
