Hurricanes' Max McCormick: Signs one-year deal with Canes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCormick signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Hurricanes on Wednesday.

McCormick spent all of last season with AHL Charlotte, notching 16 goals and 35 points in 56 contests. He hasn't played in the NHL since 2018-19, when he potted a goal in 14 games with the Senators. It's unlikely the physical winger gets much of a chance to play for the Hurricanes in 2020-21 -- it's much more likely the 28-year-old McCormick spends most of the campaign in the minors.

Hurricanes' Max McCormick: Sent to bus league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Hurricanes assigned McCormick (undisclosed) to AHL Charlotte on Thursday, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

McCormick was dealing with an undisclosed injury towards the end of training camp, which is the only reason he wasn't cut from the big club sooner. The 27-year-old, who potted one goal in 14 appearances with the Senators last season, will undoubtedly spend most of the 2019-20 campaign in the minors.

Hurricanes' Max McCormick: Starting season on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCormick (undisclosed) was placed on non-roster injured reserve Tuesday.

It's unclear what's bothering McCormick and there's no apparent timeline for his recovery. He won't be able to return until Oct. 8 versus the Panthers. The Hurricanes currently have a room to keep him on their roster once he's healthy, but it'll likely be best for his development to work top-six minutes for AHL Charlotte as opposed to a fourth-line role with the big club.

Hurricanes' Max McCormick: Snags two-way deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCormick inked a one-year, two-way contract with Carolina on Thursday.

McCormick played in just 14 games for the Senators last season, in which he tallied one goal, 12 shots and 21 hits while logging 7:30 of ice time per game. Instead, the Wisconsin native spent the bulk of the year in the minors with AHL Belleville and Colorado, appearing in 45 contests and registering 20 points. While the 27-year-old will be with the club during training camp, he is unlikely to earn a spot on the 23-man roster.

Avalanche's Max McCormick: Swapped in minor-league deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCormick was acquired by the Avalanche from the Senators in exchange for Jean-Christophe Beaudin on Wednesday.

McCormick has tallied seven goals and five helpers in 20 minor-league contests this season while also appearing in 14 games for Ottawa. The Wisconsin native figures to spend the bulk of the year with AHL Colorado, but could earn a promotion down the stretch.

Senators' Max McCormick: Placed on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Senators waived McCormick on Sunday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

McCormick has just one goal in 14 games this year, and he's been a healthy scratch 13 times in the last 19 contests. If McCormick goes unclaimed on waivers, he'll shift to AHL Belleville.

Senators' Max McCormick: Activated off IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCormick (lower body) is no longer listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

McCormick's return to health will bolster the Senators' depth up front, but it won't impact any fantasy lineups, as he's only totaled five goals and nine points in 58 appearances over the past four seasons.

Senators' Max McCormick: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCormick (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, per the NHL's official media site.

McCormick won't be eligible to return until Oct. 13 against the Kings. The 26-year-old winger has 58 NHL games under his belt with five goals and four assists total. This move won't have a tangible effect in the fantasy realm.

Senators' Max McCormick: Ruled out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCormick (lower body) has been ruled out of Saturday's contest against Toronto.

McCormick left Thursday against the Blackhawks after just six shifts, and the injury is serious enough that coach Guy Boucher said the Senators might call someone up from AHL Belleville for Saturday's game. McCormick likely wasn't an option for most rosters anyway, but he definitely shouldn't be in your lineup now.

Senators' Max McCormick: Exits due to injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCormick won't return to Thursday's matchup with the Blackhawks due to a lower-body injury.

The severity of McCormick's injury has yet to be determined, but the Senators should release another update on his status prior to Saturday's game against the Maple Leafs.

Senators' Max McCormick: Averages just 8:21 of ice time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCormick had five points (three goals, two assists) in 30 games, while also supplying 56 hits in 2017-18.

McCormick finds himself in a tricky situation, as he's found AHL success and even logged 27 points (eight goals, 19 assists) in 49 games this season, but has been unable to translate it to the highest level at least thus far. With only 8:21 of ice time per game it was hard for the Wisconsin native to make an impact regardless, but he still impressively had 56 hits, while averaging a shot on goal per game. McCormick projects to push for an opening day roster spot in 2018-19, and will enter a contract season in Ottawa.

Senators' Max McCormick: Brought back to NHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCormick was recalled from AHL Belleville on Friday, Brent Wallace of reports.

McCormick is more physical than Colin White, whom he's trading places with on the organizational depth chart. Still, he's been limited to 33 games at the NHL level, and the lack of experience keeps him from being owned in virtually any fantasy setting for the time being.

Senators' Max McCormick: Returns to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCormick was reassigned to AHL Belleville on Wednesday.

The Senators acquired veteran winger Marian Gaborik from the Kings in a swap for defenseman Dion Phaneuf, and that allows McCormick to polish his game outside of such a high-pressure environment. Hailing from Wisconsin, McCormick has 27 points (eight goals, 19 assists) and 80 PIM with the AHL's Senators this season to supplement the pair of points he's collected over two separate stints (six games) in the NHL.

Senators' Max McCormick: Headed back to Ottawa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCormick was called up Monday from AHL Belleville.

With Nate Thompson (lower body) not playing Tuesday against Pittsburgh, McCormick will get the nod as the emergency forward. The Wisconsin native has only appeared in five games this season but was able to light the lamp once. However, he shouldn't receive more than a fourth-line role if he cracks Tuesday's lineup.

Senators' Max McCormick: Returned to minor-league affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Senators reassigned McCormick to AHL Belleville on Friday.

McCormick's demotion suggests Nate Thompson (lower body) will likely be ready to return Saturday against Toronto. The 25-year-old winger will continue to be one of the first players the Senators turn to when they're dealing with injuries up front, but he isn't a viable fantasy option at this stage in his career.

Senators' Max McCormick: Recalled for injury relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCormick was recalled from AHL Bellevile on Tuesday.

Six Ottawa forwards are currently dealing with an injury, including two new ones in Nate Thompson (lower body) and Derrick Brassard (undisclosed). It only makes sense, therefore, that the team would have to use a recall just to get enough forwards in the lineup and McCormick is the lucky man this time around. The Wisconsin native hasn't been particularly effective in the three games he's played for the big club to this point in the season, so don't expect him to suddenly break out.

Senators' Max McCormick: Travel issues prevent call-up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCormick's call-up from AHL Belleville has been rescinded as the result of travel issues, and he'll no longer be on the active roster for Tuesday's road game against the Blues, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

According to this latest report, rookie Erik Burgdoerfer will play instead, but neither player warrants much attention in fantasy at this juncture.

Senators' Max McCormick: Promoted from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCormick was recalled from AHL Belleville on Tuesday.

McCormick will travel to join the team for Tuesday's clash in St. Louis and will slot into the lineup if he arrives in time. If not, the Sens will suit up a seventh defenseman (Erik Burgdoerfer). A bevy of injuries has opened the door for McCormick to get another shot at earning a bigger role within the organization.

Senators' Max McCormick: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCormick was reassigned to AHL Belleville on Tuesday.

McCormick was able to crack the lineup for Monday's blowout loss to the Canadiens, but just to be an enforcer -- the Wisconsin native racked up 14 PIM in just 1:04 of ice time but apparently failed to provide much of a morale boost. Between his constant demotions and lack of scoring ability, McCormick is firmly off the fantasy radar.

Senators' Max McCormick: Called up from AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCormick was promoted from AHL Belleville on Monday.

McCormick is back with the Senators after a brief stint in the minors. The winger's call-up won't change the fact that coach Guy Boucher is going to continue utilizing seven blueliners for Monday's tilt against the Canadiens. The 25-year-old is expected to watch from the press box, barring a last minute injury during warmups.
