Sabres' Vinnie Hinostroza: Agrees to terms with Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hinostroza signed a one-year, $1.05 million contract with the Sabres on Wednesday.

Hinostroza appeared in 26 games split between the Panthers and the Blackhawks last season, picking up four goals and 12 points while averaging 12:16 per contest. The 27-year-old forward will likely have a more prominent role with Buffalo in 2021-22, but he may struggle to produce offense on a rebuilding Sabres squad.

Blackhawks' Vinnie Hinostroza: Pair of points in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hinostroza provided a goal and an assist in Monday's 5-4 overtime loss to Dallas. He also had three hits and two PIM.

Hinostroza lit the lamp on his only shot of the game, powering to the net midway through the third period and slipping a backhander through Jake Oettinger. He also picked up an assist late in the second period, which snapped Hinostroza's five-game point drought.

Blackhawks' Vinnie Hinostroza: Nets tally in overtime loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hinostroza scored a goal on three shots, doled out three hits and added four PIM in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Panthers.

Hinostroza showed his old team what they were missing when he tallied in the second period. The 28-year-old has found success in a middle-six role in Chicago -- he has 10 points in 11 outings since the Panthers traded him away. From a fantasy perspective, the only knock on his game is a lack of power-play time.

Blackhawks' Vinnie Hinostroza: Adds helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hinostroza produced an assist, three shots on goal and two hits in Tuesday's 7-4 loss to the Lightning.

Hinostroza continued his strong run of play with the secondary helper on a Duncan Keith goal in the second period. The 27-year-old Hinostroza is up to two goals and seven helpers through 10 games since he rejoined the Blackhawks at the trade deadline. As long as he sees top-six usage, the Chicago native should be a solid depth addition to fantasy rosters.

Blackhawks' Vinnie Hinostroza: Pokes in lone goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hinostroza scored a goal on three shots in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Predators.

Hinostroza's tally wasn't initially called as such on the ice -- it took video review to determine he poked the puck fully across the goal line at 16:41 of the third period. The 27-year-old's game has come alive since he was traded from the Blackhawks to the Panthers. In nine games since the trade, Hinostroza has two goals and six helpers, which accounts for all of his offense this season. He's seen middle-six minutes in his second stint with the 'Hawks, and he's making the most of them currently.

Blackhawks' Vinnie Hinostroza: Comes up big late
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hinostroza collected a goal and an assist with two shots and two hits Wednesday in a 5-4 overtime win over the Predators.

Hinostroza potted his first goal as a Blackhawk midway through the third period, cutting Nashville's lead to 4-3 on a give-and-go with Kirby Dach. Hinostroza later set up Brandon Hagel's overtime winner for his second multi-point outing in the last three contests. The 27-year-old didn't produce a single point in nine games for Florida, but he's put together seven in eight contests since being acquired by Chicago.

Blackhawks' Vinnie Hinostroza: Distributes three apples
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hinostroza registered three assists and was plus-3 in a 4-0 win over Detroit on Saturday.

The 27-year-old exceeded his entire 2020-21 point total in a single night, assisting on goals by Patrick Kane, Wyatt Kalynuk and Pius Suter. Hinostroza, who was acquired earlier this month from Florida, has five points (all assists) in six contests with Chicago after nine scoreless games with the Panthers.

Blackhawks' Vinnie Hinostroza: Helpers in back-to-back games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hinostroza recorded an assist, two shots on goal and four hits in Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Stars.

Hinostroza set up Dominik Kubalik for the Blackhawks' lone tally. The 27-year-old Hinostroza has an assist in each of his two games to begin his second stint in Chicago. The forward is holding onto a second-line role after he was traded from the Panthers on April 2.

Blackhawks' Vinnie Hinostroza: Notches assist in Blackhawks return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hinostroza produced an assist, three hits and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Stars.

Hinostroza had a positive start to his second stint in Chicago, setting up Dominik Kubalik's second-period tally. That duo worked with center Philipp Kurashev as the Blackhawks' second line Tuesday. The 27-year-old Hinostroza never got going as a Panther, with no points in nine games of fourth-line usage. A larger role and a change of scenery could help the Illinois native regain his scoring touch, which saw him produce 22 points through 68 games with the Coyotes last season.

Blackhawks' Vinnie Hinostroza: In lineup Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hinostroza (COVID-19 protocols) will be added to the Blackhawks' active roster and play in Tuesday's game versus Dallas, Scott Powers of The Athletic reports.

Hinostroza is expected to skate on Chicago's second line versus the Stars. The 27-year-old forward went scoreless through nine games with the Panthers before being acquired by the Blackhawks via a trade Friday.

Blackhawks' Vinnie Hinostroza: Placed on non-roster list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hinostroza was listed as a non-roster player Saturday, per CapFriendly.

Hinostroza will need to fulfill a quarantine as part of the NHL's COVID-19 protocol before he can join the Blackhawks after he was traded from the Panthers on Friday. The length of his quarantine is unknown, but Hinostroza will have to be activated from the non-roster list before he can play.

Blackhawks' Vinnie Hinostroza: Traded to Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers traded Hinostroza to the Blackhawks in exchange for Brad Morrison on Friday.

Hinostroza has struggled in limited action with the Panthers this season, going scoreless while posting a minus-2 rating in nine appearances. The 26-year-old forward will likely take on a rotational, bottom-six role with the Blackhawks.

Panthers' Vinnie Hinostroza: Quiet in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hinostroza registered a hit but no points in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime win over the Blackhawks.

A new addition for the Cats this season, Hinostroza drew in for Ryan Lomberg on the fourth line after being a healthy scratch for the team's first game Sunday. Hinostroza is looking to top the 22 points he put up in 68 games last season with the Coyotes, but he's going to have a hard time working his way up the left wing depth chart with Jonathan Huberdeau, Frank Vatrano, and Carter Verhaeghe in his way.

Panthers' Vinnie Hinostroza: Heading to Sunshine State
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hinostroza and the Panthers agreed to a one-year, $1 million deal on Friday.

After scoring a career-high 39 points during the 2018-19 season, Hinostroza tallied just 22 points in 68 games. Florida's forward group will have a much different look than it did last season, so it's unclear where the 26-year-old will fit in and he could move between center and wing.

Vinnie Hinostroza: Won't receive qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hinostroza won't receive a qualifying offer from the Coyotes, which means he'll become an unrestricted free agent Oct. 9, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.

Hinostroza's qualifying over would come in at $1.5 million, and the Coyotes are actively trying to shed salary this offseason, so this news doesn't come as a surprise -- especially considering the 26-year-old forward only picked up five goals and 22 points in 68 games last year. The Chicago native should, however, have plenty of suitors in free agency as a skilled bottom-sixer who can chip in on the penalty kill.

Coyotes' Vinnie Hinostroza: Helps out on power play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hinostroza recorded a power-play assist in Monday's 7-1 loss to the Avalanche in Game 4.

Hinostroza has struggled a bit since the restart of play, with two assists and a plus-1 rating in six games. The 26-year-old had a modest 22 points (five goals, 17 helpers) in 68 regular-season contests. Regression played a role for Hinostroza in 2019-20 -- he shot 10.5 percent to score 16 goals and 39 points in the previous season, then dipped to a 3.8 percent scoring rate this year.

Coyotes' Vinnie Hinostroza: Healthy scratch Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hinostroza is not in the lineup and is a healthy scratch for Game 1 against Nashville on Sunday, Alexander Kinkopf of the Coyotes' official website reports.

This comes as a bit of a shocker, as Hinostroza suited up in 68 games this season and was reasonably productive with 22 points in an average of 13:06 of ice time. Veteran Michael Grabner and rookie Barrett Hayton drew into the lineup instead, and interested parties should keep watch for additional info regarding Hinostroza's status ahead of Tuesday's Game 2.

Coyotes' Vinnie Hinostroza: Registers helper for 100th point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hinostroza picked up an assist and four shots on goal in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Canucks.

Hinostroza earned the secondary helper on Lawson Crouse's go-ahead goal at 12:39 of the third period. The assist was Hinostroza's 100th career point, achieved in his 244th game. For the season, the 25-year-old has 22 points, 129 shots and a plus-2 rating through 66 contests.

Coyotes' Vinnie Hinostroza: Contributes shorthanded helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hinostroza posted a shorthanded assist and three shots on goal in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Panthers.

Hinostroza set up Brad Richardson for the goal in the first period. The assist snapped a seven-game drought for Hinostroza, who has 21 points through 64 contests. The 25-year-old has added 121 shots, a plus-2 rating and 49 hits this season, but he's typically played in a bottom-six role lately.

Coyotes' Vinnie Hinostroza: Goal and assist Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hinostroza netted a goal and dished an assist in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Ducks.

Hinostroza scored in the first period and earned the secondary helper on Lawson Crouse's tally in the second. Their line, centered by Nick Schmaltz, accounted for all of the Coyotes' offense in the game. Hinostroza's two-point effort snapped a seven-game point drought. The 25-year-old has five tallies and 19 points through 51 contests.
