Chatfield has been a healthy scratch for Vancouver's last two contests.
Chatfield has worked his way into nine games for the Canucks this season, but he's found himself on the outside looking in recently. He's recorded no points while posting a minus-7 rating while averaging 14:18 of ice time per contest this year. His fantasy value will be limited even when he returns to the lineup.
Chatfield (upper body) had one shot on goal and a plus-1 rating in 13:24 of ice time in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Senators.
Chatfield missed two games with the injury. He has two shots, three hits and a blocked shot through three appearances. The 24-year-old probably won't play much more than a third-pairing role.
Chatfield (upper body) will play in Wednesday's game against the Senators, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.
Chatfield logged 15:30 of ice time in his NHL debut, and he can expected a similar workload in his return from a two-game absence due to injury. The 24-year-old is currently paired with Nate Schmidt on the blue line.
Chatfield (upper body) will not suit up against Ottawa on Monday, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.
Chatfield will miss his second straight game after suffering an injury against Montreal on Jan. 21. The 24-year-old made his NHL debut earlier this season but has yet to record a point. His next chance to play will come Wednesday against Ottawa.
Chatfield is considered day-to-day with an upper-body injury and won't play Saturday against Montreal.
Chatfield won't be available against the Canadiens, but his day-to-day tag suggests he could be ready to return for Monday's matchup with Ottawa. The 24-year-old rookie has gone scoreless while averaging 10:02 of ice time in two appearances with the Canucks this season.
Chatfield (upper body) will be reevaluated Friday after leaving Thursday's game, Matthew Sekeres of TSN 1040 reports.
Chatfield left in the first period of Thursday's contest with the injury. The Canucks' defense is in shambles with Alexander Edler and Travis Hamonic both sidelined by upper-body injuries already. Expect an update on Chatfield prior to Saturday.
Chatfield (upper body) was injured in the first period of Thursday's game versus the Canadiens and will not return, Dan Murphy of Sportsnet reports.
It's unclear how Chatfield got hurt, but he went to the locker room in the middle of the first period. The 24-year-old blueliner didn't return at the start of the second. With Alexander Edler and Travis Hamonic both out with upper-body injuries, the Canucks' defensive depth is already stretched thin. If Chatfield also misses additional time, Jordie Benn or Guillaume Brisebois would be options to join the lineup.
Chatfield made his NHL debut in Wednesday's win over Montreal.
The undrafted defenseman got his first taste of NHL action, logging 15:30 of ice time. He had a minus-1 rating, with one shot on goal, two hits and a block. Injuries to the Canucks blue line could earn Chatfield a longer look at the NHL level.
Chatfield signed a one-year, two-way contract with Vancouver on Wednesday.
Chatfield was called up by the Canucks a handful of times last season but never broke into the lineup. Looking ahead to the upcoming campaign, the 24-year-old defenseman should get the opportunity to make his NHL debut yet will almost certainly spend some time playing in the minors.
The Canucks demoted Chatfield to AHL Utica on Monday.
Chatfield has earned a few call-ups this season but has not yet made his NHL debut. The 23-year-old blueliner has four assists in 48 AHL contests this season.
The Canucks recalled Chatfield from AHL Utica on Wednesday.
Chatfield's recall could be an indication that Chris Tanev (undisclosed) could miss some games on the team's road trip, as Chatfield gives the Canucks eight defensemen on the active roster.
Vancouver reassigned Chatfield to AHL Utica on Thursday.
Chatfield's demotion suggests Tyler Myers (undisclosed) will likely be ready to return Friday against Colorado. The 23-year-old blueliner failed to crack the lineup during his one-game stay with the big club.
Chatfield was promoted from AHL Utica on Tuesday.
The fact that the Canucks promoted a pair of defensemen from the minors doesn't bode well for the health of the blue line. The 23-year-old Chatfield has yet to make his NHL debut following three seasons with the Comets in the minors. In 46 contests for Utica this year, the Michigan native has notched a mere four helpers and likely won't offer much in terms of fantasy value if he does get into a game for Vancouver.
The Canucks reassigned Chatfield to AHL Utica on Monday.
With Alexander Edler (upper body) activated from IR, Chatfield will shift back to the AHL. The 23-year-old Chatfield didn't make his NHL debut in the week he spent with the big club, and he'll look to fine-tune his skills in the minors, where he posted one assist over 20 games thus far.
The Canucks recalled Chatfield from AHL Utica on Monday.
Chatfield spent 10 games with the big club earlier in the season but was a healthy scratch for each contest. The 23-year-old has limited offensive upside, as he's posted just one point over 20 AHL games this season. His next chance for an NHL debut is Tuesday against the Canadiens.
Vancouver reassigned Chatfield to AHL Utica on Friday.
Chatfield has been a healthy scratch for five straight contests since being promoted Dec. 1, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. The 23-year-old has only notched one helper in 18 AHL appearances this season, so he won't offer any fantasy value even if he's able to crack the big club's lineup later this year.
Chatfield was recalled from AHL Utica on Sunday, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.
The 23-year-old blueliner has yet to make his NHL debut, spending the last three seasons with AHL Utica. Chatfield may not find his way into the lineup during this stint, either, as he's likely just an insurance player for now. He's registered just one assist in 18 games at the AHL level this season.
Chatfield was sent down to AHL Utica on Wednesday.
Chatfield served as a healthy scratch in each of the previous four contests, so it shouldn't come as a surprise to see him bound for the minors. The Michigan native likely will only find himself back with the Canucks if injuries pop up on the blue line and should be expected to finish out the year in the minors.
The Canucks recalled Chatfield from AHL Utica on Friday, Rick Dhaliwal of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.
Chris Tanev suffered an upper-body injury during Thursday's loss to the Blackhawks, so Chatfield will be on hand as the Canucks' seventh defender Friday against Winnipeg. The 23-year-old has gone scoreless in 11 games with Utica this season.
