Golden Knights' Jaycob Megna: Signs one-year deal with Vegas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna signed a one-year, $700,000 deal with the Golden Knights on Monday.

Struggling with cap space and a thin group of defensemen, Vegas might have Megna at the NHL level next season. Last season, the 26-year-old split time between Anaheim and AHL San Diego, scoring four points in 28 games for the NHL club. Even if he's at the NHL level, Megna likely won't provide much fantasy upside in a depth role.

Ducks' Jaycob Megna: Demoted to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna was sent down to AHL San Diego on Sunday.

Megna had four points in 28 games at the NHL level this season after appearing in 15 games over the two prior campaigns. He's still on the bubble between the NHL and AHL levels, but he'll go get some extra work in with Anaheim's season all wrapped up. He should rejoin the team for training camp next season.

Ducks' Jaycob Megna: Non-factor in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna recorded one shot on goal and also dished out a hit in Wednesday's 3-0 loss to Winnipeg.

The third-pairing defenseman has only found the scoresheet four times in 22 games this season. Regardless of format, Megna is not worthy of fantasy consideration.

Ducks' Jaycob Megna: Tallies first NHL goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna scored his first goal of the season and added an assist in a 5-4 loss to the Blues on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old had two points in 29 career NHL games coming into the night, so for him to register a goal and an assist in the same evening is quite surprising. He has a goal and three points with a minus-1 rating, 21 shots on net, 14 hits and 17 blocks in 15 games this season.

Ducks' Jaycob Megna: Quiet in February
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna has just one assist in 11 games in February.

The American blueliner accumulated 15 shots on goal and 13 blocked shots in that span. After being healthy-scratched for the first two games after his call-up on Jan. 31, he's found a consistent role on the third pairing, averaging 13:07 per game.

Ducks' Jaycob Megna: Ascends to NHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna was called up from AHL San Diego on Thursday, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.

Megna will trade places on the organizational depth chart with Jake Dotchin. Considering Megna has only 15 NHL games under his belt and this marks his first call-up of the 2018-19 season, fantasy owners can safely bypass the 26-year-old defenseman in all formats.

Ducks' Jaycob Megna: Sent to minor-league affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ducks reassigned Megna to AHL San Diego on Tuesday.

Megna's demotion indicates Hampus Lindholm (upper body), who practiced Wednesday, is likely nearing a return to game action. The 25-year-old American will likely remain in the minors unless the Ducks are once again in need of an extra body at defense due to injury later this campaign.

Ducks' Jaycob Megna: Recalled by big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ducks recalled Megna from AHL San Diego on Tuesday.

Hampus Lindholm is currently dealing with an upper-body injury, so Megna will likely round out the Ducks' depth at defense Tuesday against the Golden Knights. The 24-year-old blueliner has tallied one assist in 11 games with the big club this campaign.

Jaycob Megna: Placed on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna was placed on waivers by the Ducks on Thursday, Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada reports.

Megna hasn't seen the ice since Nov. 15 against the Bruins and has just one point in 11 appearances this season. Whether he finds a new home or not, Megna is not expected to have much fantasy value this season due to his limited offensive upside. If he goes unclaimed, the 24-year-old blueliner will likely be assigned to AHL San Diego.

Ducks' Jaycob Megna: Watches from press box Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna was a healthy scratch for Friday's 5-3 loss to Nashville on Friday.

The 26-year-old defenseman had suited up for each of the eight previous games but logged just 16:29 of ice time and recorded only a single assist. Megna owns a coveted 6-foot-6 frame and is a solid defender in his own zone. However, he offers little offensive upside, so he projects to remain off the fantasy radar in the majority of settings at this stage of the game.

Ducks' Jaycob Megna: Receiving limited minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna has averaged just 14:16 of ice time through three games this season. He's also been a healthy scratch for three contests.

The 6-foot-6 defenseman is an imposing presence on the ice and plays a safe and steady game. However, Megna's offensive upside is extremely limited, and he projects to return to the AHL once the Anaheim blue line is back to full health. There aren't many fantasy settings where Megna warrants attention.

Ducks' Jaycob Megna: Inks two-year, two-way deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna signed a two-year, two-way contract extension with the Ducks on Thursday. Financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

He's got size at 6-foot-6, 225 pounds, and passing ability to boot. Megna amassed 34 assists in 129 games with AHL San Diego over the last two seasons, not to mention going plus-23 and plus-33, respectively. The two-way element of his contract suggests that he won't be a full-time player within the next few years -- thus sapping his fantasy value -- but Anaheim's seventh-rounder from 2012 does seem to be clearing all the hurdles en route to a more secure role down the line.

Ducks' Jaycob Megna: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna was reassigned to AHL San Diego on Tuesday.

Megna's reassignment could indicate that Clayton Stoner (abdomen) is ready to return to the lineup following a lengthy absence. The 25-year-old Megna managed a plus-1 rating with no points or shots on goal in his single appearance for the Ducks on April 6, and he'll now set his sights on a Calder Cup run with the AHL's Gulls.

Ducks' Jaycob Megna: Brought up to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ducks recalled Megna from AHL San Diego on Thursday.

Megna will likely get an opportunity to make his NHL debut Thursday against Chicago, as his promotion suggests Cam Fowler (lower body) won't be available against the Blackhawks. The 24-year-old defender has been a solid producer from the blue line in the minors this season, notching 27 points (five goals, 22 assists) in 60 games with AHL San Diego. Megna will likely return to the Ducks' AHL affiliate as soon as Fowler or Hampus Lindholm are fit to play.

Assigned To San Diego (AHL)
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Megna was assigned to the San Diego Gulls of the AHL on Monday.Megna dressed for a couple preseason games with the Ducks this September, but probably didn't stand a very realistic shot at making the team. The 22-year-old will now have to set his sights on AHL success before aiming to hit the big leagues again. Megna has five points in 34 career AHL games.
