Coyotes' Markus Hannikainen: Traded to Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Columbus traded Hannikainen to the Coyotes in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick Monday, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports.

Hannikainen hasn't cracked the lineup for a single game with the Blue Jackets this campaign, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. The 26-year-old Finn will likely report to Arizona's AHL affiliate, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him get a look with the Coyotes at some point down the stretch.

Blue Jackets' Markus Hannikainen: Reassigned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hannikainen was demoted to AHL Cleveland on Wednesday.

Hannikainen has yet to appear in a game for the Blue Jackets this season, instead watching from the press box when up with the big club. With Nick Foligno available following his three-game suspension, Hannikainen was unlikely to play versus Detroit on Thursday anyway. While the 26-year-old figures to remain atop the list of potential call-ups throughout the year but is unlikely to log significant minutes in the NHL unless a couple of injuries pop up.

Blue Jackets' Markus Hannikainen: Summoned from AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jackets recalled Hannikainen from AHL Cleveland on Thursday, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.

Hannikainen will provide some depth up front after the team placed Kole Sherwood on injured reserve Thursday due to an oblique tear. Even with his recall, Hannikainen doesn't present enough of an offensive threat to warrant fantasy ownership in most formats.

Blue Jackets' Markus Hannikainen: Returned to minor-league affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jackets reassigned Hannikainen to AHL Cleveland on Tuesday.

Hannikainen's demotion suggests Brandon Dubinsky (wrist) might be ready to make his season debut soon. The 26-year-old winger will continue to bounce between the AHL and NHL, but he won't have any fantasy value in 2019-20.

Blue Jackets' Markus Hannikainen: Recalled by Blue Jackets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Columbus recalled Hannikainen from AHL Cleveland on Thursday.

The Blue Jackets only had 12 healthy forwards on their roster prior to Hannikainen's promotion, so he'll round out the team's depth up front until one of Alexandre Texier (knee) or Brandon Dubinsky (wrist) is cleared to play. The 26-year-old Finn has notched four points in five AHL appearances this season.

Blue Jackets' Markus Hannikainen: Demoted to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hannikainen was sent down to AHL Cleveland following Columbus' 3-2 overtime loss to the Islanders on Saturday.

Hannikainen failed to crack the lineup in five tries to begin 2019-20, and as a result, he'll head to the minors and try to sort out his game. Last season, in 44 appearances at the NHL level, the 26-year-old produced a total of seven points.

Blue Jackets' Markus Hannikainen: Promoted to top level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jackets recalled Hannikainen from AHL Cleveland on Friday.

Columbus placed Josh Anderson (upper body) on injured reserve in a corresponding move, so Hannikainen will round out the team's depth up front until Anderson is ready to rejoin the lineup. The 26-year-old notched four goals and seven points in 44 NHL appearances last season.

Blue Jackets' Markus Hannikainen: Among AHL demotions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hannikainen headlined the list of 10 players reassigned to AHL Cleveland on Thursday.

The Blue Jackets promoted a number of players Wednesday in order to fill out the roster for their clash with Buffalo. The club could decide to make similar moves ahead of its final two preseason contests. In addition to Hannikainen, Columbus also demoted forwards Paul Bittner, Zac Dalpe, Nathan Gerbe, Nikita Korostelev, Kole Sherwood and Kevin Stenlund along with defensemen Gabriel Carlsson and Anton Karlsson and goaltender Veini Vehvilainen.

Blue Jackets' Markus Hannikainen: Summoned by parent club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hannikainen was recalled by the Blue Jackets on Wednesday.

Columbus already placed Hannikainen on waivers Monday for the purpose of reassigning him to their AHL affiliate, so although although he'll likely stick with the Blue Jackets for the final three games of their preseason schedule, he'll almost certainly be sent back to the bus league prior to the team's regular-season opener against Toronto on Oct. 4.

Blue Jackets' Markus Hannikainen: Lands on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hannikainen was designated for waivers by Columbus on Monday in order to reassign him to the minors.

In 44 games last season, Hannikainen notched four goals and three helpers and is far from a lock to clear waivers. A modest $750,000 cap hit could make the depth forward all the more intriguing to NHL clubs. If he does clear, the 26-year-old will star the year in the minors, but could earn a call-up sooner rather than later.

Blue Jackets' Markus Hannikainen: Settles immigration issues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hannikainen reportedly settled his immigration issues Thursday and is expected to be in Columbus for training camp Friday, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

It was originally believed that Hannikainen wasn't going to be available for the start of training camp, but it seems he was able to find a way to settle his issues and be present for the start of camp. The Finn recorded four goals and three assists over 44 games last year. Now Hannikainen will be able to use his extra time on the ice to cement a bottom-six role heading into the 2019-20 season.

Blue Jackets' Markus Hannikainen: Dealing with immigration issues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hannikainen will miss the start of training camp due to immigration issues, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

It's unlikely this problem will extend beyond more than a few days, but any time off the ice could impact Hannikainen's chances of cementing a spot in the lineup for Opening Night versus Toronto on Oct. 4. The Finnish winger tallied four goals and three helpers in 44 games last year, but will face challenges for ice time from Alexandre Texier, Eric Robinson and Jakob Lilja. Still, Hannikainen should have the inside track on a bottom-six role heading into the 2019-20 campaign.

Blue Jackets' Markus Hannikainen: Inks extension with Columbus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hannikainen signed a one-year, $735,000 extension with the Blue Jackets on Monday, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

Hannikainen notched four goals and seven points during 44 regular-season contests during the 2018-19 campaign. The 26-year-old Finn will likely slot into a bottom-six role again next season.

Blue Jackets' Markus Hannikainen: Activated from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hannikainen (illness) was removed from injured reserve Sunday.

The depth winger missed the last five games with his ailment and hasn't scored a point since Dec. 1. With the team's recent additions of Matt Duchene and Ryan Dzingel, Hannikainen will likely be a healthy scratch most nights.

Blue Jackets' Markus Hannikainen: Will not play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hannikainen (illness) has been ruled out for Friday's matchup with the Senators, Tom Reed of The Athletic reports.

It was reported Thursday that Hannikainen was healthy and ready to play in Friday's game, with the Finn logging a practice with Brandon Dubinsky and Riley Nash. Of course, the change of plans could be a moot point, as the winger hasn't registered a point in 24 consecutive games, and there probably isn't a fantasy following here anyway.

Blue Jackets' Markus Hannikainen: Healthy ahead of Friday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hannikainen (illness) was back at practice Thursday, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports.

As expected, the Finn practiced on the fourth line with Brandon Dubinsky and Riley Nash. Hannikainen is no longer showing on injured reserve, per the Blue Jackets' official site, which serves as additional proof that he's ready to rock. Still, there's not much fantasy value to be gleaned from a guy who has produced only seven points through 42 games.

Blue Jackets' Markus Hannikainen: Surfaces on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jackets placed Hannikainen (illness) on injured reserve Tuesday.

Columbus has yet to release any details regarding a potential timeline for Hannikainen's recovery, but there's no reason for fantasy owners to keep tabs on his availability, as he's only tallied seven points while averaging 9:25 of ice time in 42 appearances this season.

Blue Jackets' Markus Hannikainen: Ruled out against Lightning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hannikainen (illness) won't be in the lineup versus Tampa Bay on Monday, Craig Merz of NHL.com reports.

Hannikainen is currently bogged down in a 24-game pointless streak, so even once he gets healthy, he could struggle to earn his way into the lineup. The winger's lack of production is probably due in part to his limited minutes, as he is averaging just 9:19 of ice time during his slump. If he does rejoin the lineup, it will likely be at the expense of Lukas Sedlak or Kole Sherwood.

Blue Jackets' Markus Hannikainen: Under the weather
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hannikainen won't play Saturday against Chicago due to an illness, Blue Jackets reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.

With Hannikainen unavailable, Kole Sherwood will draw into the lineup and make his season debut against the Blackhawks. The 25-year-old winger will hope to recover in time for Monday's clash with the Lightning.

Blue Jackets' Markus Hannikainen: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hannikainen (elbow) will rejoin the lineup Tuesday against the Sabres, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports.

Hannikainen will take the place of Boone Jenner (undisclosed), who will be unavailable for the contest. Although he owns a career-high seven points this season, the winger doesn't really work as anything more than a daily fantasy flier given his minimal ice time. He should slot into the bottom six Tuesday.
