Sabres' Carlo Colaiacovo: Scores first of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colaiacovo scored his first goal of the year Thursday in Carolina on his only shot in 10:38 of ice time.

After 33 games without a goal (and just four assists), it's nice for him to bust through, but those other stats tell the story of Colaiacovo's fantasy potential. In a word -- okay, two words -- it's nearly nil.

Sabres' Carlo Colaiacovo: Cleared to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colaiacovo (lower body) will play in Saturday's meeting with the Maple Leafs.

Colaiacovo has failed to record a point since early December and is currently riding a 14-game scoring drought. The defenseman's fantasy value is further diminished by his lack of ice time, as he is averaging 14:27 per game, which is less than some forwards on the team. With the 33-year-old healthy enough to return, Chad Ruhwedel was reassigned to AHL Rochester.

Sabres' Carlo Colaiacovo: Doubtful for Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colaiacovo (lower body) did not attend practice Thursday and the Sabres called up two players from the AHL on Friday, reports John Vogl of The Buffalo News.

Colaiacovo is considered day-to-day, but his lower-body ailment is serious enough to force him to miss Friday's game. Chad Ruhwedel was called up from AHL Rochester and will likely take his spot on the team's third pairing.

Sabres' Carlo Colaiacovo: Returns to lineup Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colaiacovo will play Tuesday against Florida, reports Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald.

The veteran depth defenseman will appear in his 20th game this season after sitting for 11 straight games. He has four assists and averages 15:53 of ice time per game, which means he'll likely end up playing his usual third-pairing minutes. Mike Weber will sit as the Sabres host the Panthers. With Mark Pysyk (lower body) returning soon, the Sabres will have a logjam on defense with eight healthy players. This could be an audition to see what Colaiacovo brings to the table as the Sabres will find it tough to rotate eight defensemen and be forced to make a roster move.

Sabres' Carlo Colaiacovo: Back on Tuesday following scary incident
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colaiacovo (neck) has been cleared to play in Tuesday night's contest with the Red Wings, John Vogl of The Buffalo News reports.

Colaiacovo sustained a dented trachea after taking a cross check to the throat in a game against the Predators last Saturday, but he reportedly practiced Monday and is ready to rock after receiving a clean evaluation. The defenseman only has two points in 15 games, but he provides depth for the Sabres who are sans Mark Pysyk (lower body).

Sabres' Carlo Colaiacovo: Returns to practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colaiacovo (neck) returned to practice Monday.

Colaiacovo suffered a dented trachea and needed to be hospitalized after taking a cross check to the throat Saturday, but it appears he avoided more serious damage. His status has not been officially confirmed, but the defenseman appears likely to play in Tuesday's tilt against the Red Wings.

Sabres' Carlo Colaiacovo: Flying with team to Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colaiacovo (neck) will join the Sabres on their flight to Detroit in advance of Tuesday's matchup against the Red Wings, John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports.

After departing from Saturday's game against the Predators upon taking a puck to the throat, Colaiacovo was hospitalized and diagnosed with a "dented trachea." Despite the serious-sounding nature of the injury, it doesn't sound like it will sideline Colaiacovo for extensive time, given that he's already been cleared to travel with the team. However, the team will likely reevaluate his condition Monday before determining if he'll be available to suit up against Detroit.

Sabres' Carlo Colaiacovo: Bruised trachea after cross check to throat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colaiacovo has a "dented trachea," reports CBC's Hockey Night in Canada citing Sabres' coach Dan Bylsma. He was cross checked in the throat by the Pred's Viktor Arvidsons.

Colaiacovo just cannot catch a break -- he's almost guaranteed to miss time each year because of an injury. We don't know how long he'll be out, but suffice to say a bruised trachea isn't fixed with a dab of rubbing alcohol and a couple of gauze pads.

Sabres' Carlo Colaiacovo: Will not return Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colaiacovo will not return to Saturday's game due to an upper-body injury, John Vogl of Sabres News reports.

Colaiacovo took a cross check to the throat and remained on the ice for several minutes, so it's not surprising to see him exit Saturday's game early. More information regarding the severity of the injury should surface after the game.

Sabres' Carlo Colaiacovo: Returns to lineup Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colaiacovo will play Thursday against St. Louis after sitting out the previous game as a healthy scratch, reports Andy Strickland of Fox Sports Midwest.

Colaicovo will replace Mark Pysyk (lower body) in the lineup and has served as a depth defenseman for much of the season. He'll likely take Pysyk's spot on the third pairing with Cody Franson. His fantasy value is minimal and is expected to log the least amount of ice time amongst Sabres defensemen Thursday.

Sabres' Carlo Colaiacovo: Will not play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colaiacovo will be the odd-man out Tuesday, reports John Vogl of The Buffalo News.

With Zach Bogosian (lower body) returning to the lineup, Colaiacovo will sit as a healthy scratch. With the Sabres undergoing a youth movement, Mark Pysyk and Jake McCabe will likely remain in the lineup. When Mike Weber (knee) returns, the Sabres will have a logjam and have some tough decisions to make.

Sabres' Carlo Colaiacovo: Set to return Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colaiacovo (upper body) will return to the lineup Tuesday night against the Lightning, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.

Colaiacovo reportedly will replace Mike Weber, who is dealing with a lower-body. He's valuable to the Sabres as a depth defenseman, but Colaiacovo doesn't hold significant value in the fantasy realm as he doesn't pick up consistent playing time.

November 9, 2015 12:00 PM
Sabres' Carlo Colaiacovo: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colaiacovo returned to practice Monday, reports John Vogl of The Buffalo News.

Colaiacovo missed the past two games with an upper-body injury and it looks like he's ready to go for their next game Tuesday against Tampa Bay. The veteran journeyman has one assist in six games this season.

Sabres' Carlo Colaiacovo: Out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colaiacovo (upper body) won't play Saturday against the Canucks, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.

Saturday will mark the second straight game Colaiacovo will miss due to an upper-body injury he likely suffered in Sunday's tilt against the Islanders. Mike Weber will continue to skate alongside Mark Pysyk on the Sabres' third pairing in Colaiacovo's absence.

Sabres' Carlo Colaiacovo: Suffers upper-body injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colaiacovo is day-to-day with an upper-body injury.

No other details were given and it's not known when or where he suffered the injury. Colaiacovo played the past two games, registering three hits and four blocked shots. Mike Weber will likely take his place in the lineup on the third pairing.

Sabres' Carlo Colaiacovo: May play second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colaiacovo, who has played just three game this season, will likely suit up against Philadelphia on Monday, reports The Buffalo News.

Colaiacovo took Mike Weber's place on Saturday, finishing with 14:05 of ice time and two blocked shots. Head coach Dan Bylsma was pleased with Colaiacovo's performance and will likely pair him with Cody Franson on the third pairing. The veteran journeyman continues to be a serviceable depth player for the Sabres.

Colaiacovo agreed to a one-year deal with the Sabres on Friday.The defenseman appeared in 33 games for the Flyers last season, notching eight points and 10 penalty minutes. The veteran has also spent time with the Blues, Red Wings and Maple Leafs during his 12-year career.

Colaiacovo (illness) is expected to return to the lineup Wednesday against the Penguins, Dave Isaac of the Courier-Post reports.Colaiacovo missed last Saturday's game against the Sharks after coming down with the flu, but it appears that having the last few days off allowed him to get back to full health. Expect him to slot back in next to Brandon Manning on the Flyers' third defensive pairing.

Colaiacovo registered an assist in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Stars.Colaiacovo is not contributing heavily on offense this season. In 20 games, the defenseman has four assists and zero goals, despite setting 10 shots on goal over the past five contests. Colaiacovo had 20 or more assists in three consecutive years with the Blues between 2008-11, but that seems like a distant memory at this point. Past injuries to his leg and upper body have not helped Colaiacovo's chances to be productive.
