Devils' Fredrik Claesson: Out against Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claesson (lower body) won't play Tuesday against the Penguins, Mike Morreale of reports.

Claesson's absence will test New Jersey's depth on the back end, but it won't impact any fantasy lineups, as he's only picked up two points in five NHL appearances this season. Another update on the 27-year-old Swede's status should surface once he's set to rejoin the lineup.

Devils' Fredrik Claesson: Dealing with lower-body issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claesson will miss Monday's practice session due to a lower-body injury, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

Claesson is considered day-to-day, which means his status ahead of Tuesday's clash with Pittsburgh should be considered questionable at best. If the defenseman is unable to suit up, the club will need to promote a player from the minors as soon as possible.

Devils' Fredrik Claesson: Grabs helper in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claesson (undisclosed) picked up an assist and three hits in Friday's 4-2 win over the Blues.

The helper in his first point in four games at the NHL level this season. Claesson will likely remain in a third-pairing role to close out the year -- fantasy owners probably won't need to keep an eye on his production.

Devils' Fredrik Claesson: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claesson (undisclosed) will return to the lineup for Friday's game against the Blues, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

Claesson has missed the Devils' last two games with an undisclosed injury, but he was never expected to be sidelined long term. The 27-year-old Swede will skate with Connor Carrick on the Devils' third pairing against St. Louis.

Devils' Fredrik Claesson: Ruled out against Knights
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claesson (undisclosed) won't be in the lineup versus Vegas on Tuesday, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

It will be the second straight game on the shelf for Claesson after being traded to the Devils at the deadline as part of the Sami Vatanen (leg) deal. Even once fully fit, the 26-year-old Claesson is far from a lock for the lineup and may have to spend some time in the press box.

Devils' Fredrik Claesson: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Alain Nasreddine said Claesson is banged up and won't play Sunday versus the Ducks, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

Claesson was part of the Devils' haul for trading Sami Vatanen (foot) to Carolina, and he's played in three games since arriving in New Jersey. The 28-year-old blueliner will be replaced by Joshua Jacobs on the bottom pairing.

Devils' Fredrik Claesson: Gets called up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Devils recalled Claesson from AHL Binghamton on Monday.

The 27-year-old was acquired by the Devils via the Hurricanes on Monday, and he'll join the club on the road trip that starts in Detroit on Tuesday. Claesson hasn't suited up in NHL action since the 2018-19 season and has 26 points in 150 games in his career at the top level. With Will Butcher (upper body) missing the next five games, Claesson will be a candidate to draw into the lineup at some point over that span.

Devils' Fredrik Claesson: Traded to Devils
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Devils acquired Claesson, Janne Kuokkanen and a conditional fourth-round pick for Sami Vatanen (leg) on Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

Claesson has only played in the minors this year, recording 19 points and a plus-15 rating over 47 games. The 27-year-old has 150 NHL games to his name, though, so he could be an immediate reinforcement for New Jersey's blue line that will be without Will Butcher (upper body) until March.

Hurricanes' Fredrik Claesson: Will head to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Hurricanes waived Claesson for the purpose of assignment to AHL Charlotte on Monday, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.

Claesson signed with the Hurricanes less than a week ago, and he'll land with their minor-league team if he clears waivers. The 26-year-old blueliner played 37 games for the Rangers last year and posted six points, but the Hurricanes are set defensively right now. Claesson will stick with their farm team unless injuries surface with the big club.

Hurricanes' Fredrik Claesson: Secures one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claesson inked a one-year, two-way contract from Carolina on Tuesday.

Claesson took just four days of training camp to earn a permanent deal from the Canes after showing up on a PTO. Even with a contract in hand, the defender is far from guaranteed a spot on the 23-man roster and may need to spend some time in the minors proving he can be a consistent NHL contributor.

Hurricanes' Fredrik Claesson: Attending Carolina's camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claesson will attend the Hurricanes' training camp on a professional tryout offer, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

The Hurricanes already have a logjam at defense, so Claesson should be considered a longshot at best to make their Opening Night roster. The 26-year-old notched six points in 37 games with the Rangers last campaign.

Fredrik Claesson: Dumped by Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rangers didn't extend a qualifying offer to Claesson on Tuesday, which means he'll become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

This isn't exactly surprising, as the Rangers are in pretty good shape in terms of right-side defenders heading into 2019-20, particularly after acquiring Jacob Trouba in a trade with the Jets earlier this month. Claesson is, however, a decent bottom-pairing option, so he shouldn't have any trouble finding suitors once free agency opens.

Rangers' Fredrik Claesson: Back in press box Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claesson was a healthy scratch in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to Vancouver.

The Rangers continue to rotate seven defensemen, with Claesson occasionally getting the short end of the stick and sitting out. He hasn't had much of a fantasy impact when he gets in there, posting two goals and four assists in 31 appearances.

Rangers' Fredrik Claesson: Dishes out hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claesson recorded four hits against the Penguins on Sunday, his first outing back from a 13-game stint on the shelf.

Claesson didn't write his name on the scoresheet, but did put a pair of shots on net. Despite the Rangers having dressed seven defensemen, the 25-year-old was still able to log 17:30 of ice time versus Pittsburgh, right on pace with his season average (17:35). He should see a similar workload moving forward.

Rangers' Fredrik Claesson: Back in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claesson (shoulder) will suit up for Sunday's game versus the Penguins, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports.

Claesson was deemed healthy Saturday, and he's now been activated from injured reserve. He normally fits in as a defenseman, but the Rangers ran him through line rushes as a third-line winger. It's unclear if he'll actually stick there during the game, but his fantasy value is low anyway with just five points in 26 games this campaign.

Rangers' Fredrik Claesson: Given clean bill of health
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claesson (shoulder) has been medically cleared ahead of Sunday's matchup with Pittsburgh, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports.

It isn't clear if Claesson will slot in against the Penguins or sit as a healthy scratch, but if the 26-year-old Swede ends up playing, he'll likely take on a bottom-pairing role. The 2011 fifth-round pick has only notched five points in 26 games this campaign, so there's no reason for fantasy owners to keep tabs on his status.

Rangers' Fredrik Claesson: Making progress
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claesson (shoulder) practiced fully Monday for the first time since being injured back on Jan. 12.

Rangers head coach Dan Quinn told reporters that Claesson still needs "a little bit more time before he's ready to go," but his return to practice is an encouraging sign nonetheless. Unlikely to play Tuesday in Winnipeg, the 26-year-old could be back in the lineup Thursday against the Sabres, though a target date has not yet been communicated. As it stands right now, Claesson remains on injured reserve and will need to come off before being permitted to play in a game.

Rangers' Fredrik Claesson: Takes another recovery step
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claesson (shoulder) resumed skating Thursday and his return timetable is set at 7-to-10 days.

Claesson, whose career began in Ottawa, has averaged a mere 0.18 point per game over parts of four seasons. However, he's still taken 54.3 percent of his 5-on-5 shifts in the offensive zone this season. A lot can happen to the makeup of the Rangers roster by the time he's ready to return, but we can't envision a scenario in which he'd suddenly evolve into a fantasy-friendly defenseman.

Rangers' Fredrik Claesson: Ruled out for 2-3 weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claesson (shoulder) will miss 2-to-3 weeks, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports. The defenseman is on injured reserve, according to the NHL's official media site,

Claesson was dropped against the boards by Islanders enforcer Matt Martin on Saturday. The Swede has been fearless in his own right, accumulating 53 hits and 30 blocked shots over 26 games, so the hope is that this injury doesn't alter his shutdown approach when he ultimately returns.

Rangers' Fredrik Claesson: Set for MRI on Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claesson (shoulder) will not play Sunday in Columbus and will undergo an MRI on Monday, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.

Claesson was injured in Saturday's contest against the Islanders and apparently it's serious enough to hold him out for at least one contest. The 6-foot-1 Swede has five points in 26 games this season.
