  • Penguins' Chris Wideman: Bumps down a rank

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/26/19) The Penguins assigned Wideman to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Tuesday, Josh Yohe of The Athletic reports.

    After trading for Wideman before Monday's deadline, the Penguins immediately sent him to the minors. They only have six healthy defensemen on the roster along with an assortment of injured starters including Kris Letang (upper body), Olli Maata (shoulder) and Brian Dumoulin (concussion). Wideman may be recalled later in the season to add depth for a playoff run.

    Penguins' Chris Wideman: Bound for Pittsburgh

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/25/19) Wideman was dealt to the Penguins -- via the Panthers -- in a straight up trade for Jean-Sebastian Dea on Monday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.

    The Panthers dumped Wideman on waivers last month, but he passed through unclaimed and stuck with the organization. Fortunately for the Cats, it netted them a forward in Dea, who could be relied upon with Derick Brassard getting shipped out of town by Monday's deadline. Wideman has accumulated 45 points (16 goals, 29 assists) over 181 career contests between the Senators, Oilers and Panthers. He should help a Pittsburgh team that is down Brian Dumoulin (concussion), Olli Maata (shoulder) and possibly even Kris Letang (upper body) ahead of Monday's game against the Avs.

    Panthers' Chris Wideman: Hits waivers after Panthers debut

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/6/19) The Panthers waived Wideman on Sunday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Wideman made his Panthers debut Saturday after being traded from the Oilers along with a third-round pick in exchange for Alex Petrovic. He went minus-1, fired two shots on goal and dished out two hits over 11:53 of action. If Wideman is picked up, it'll be his fourth team of the season. If he clears, he'll report to AHL Springfield.

    Panthers' Chris Wideman: Getting set for Panthers debut

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/5/19) Wideman will make his Panthers debut against the Blue Jackets on Saturday, per George Richards of The Athletic.

    Wideman started the season with Ottawa, only to be traded to Edmonton and flipped a second time to wind up in Florida with the Cats. The American defenseman has totaled two goals and five assists through 24 games this season, but as you might expect from his pinballing around the NHL, he hasn't received much of an opportunity to pick up the type of numbers that owners need to be successful in fantasy games. Bogdan Kiselevich is considered internal competition for Wideman, so we'll have to see who ends up earning the most playing time on the third pair for the Panthers.

    Panthers' Chris Wideman: Heads for warmer weather

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/30/18) The Oilers traded Wideman and a 2019 third-round pick to the Panthers in exchange for Alex Petrovic, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.

    This is Wideman's second time being traded this season, as Ottawa dealt him to Edmonton in late November. Wideman played just five games for the Oilers, recording two assists. If he doesn't perform early, Wideman could be a healthy scratch often, similar to the situation with his last two clubs.
