  • Blues' James Wisniewski: Signs PTO with AHL Chicago

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/26/17) Wisniewski signed a 25-game professional tryout contract with AHL Chicago on Thursday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

    Wisniewski gets another crack at an NHL roster, but he will have to impress in the AHL first before getting a call to the big club. The 32-year-old put up four points and 39 penalty minutes this season for the KHL's Vladivostok Admiral, so he'll likely be looking to make his mark as an enforcer if he can get a chance with St. Louis.

    James Wisniewski: Headed to KHL

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/27/16) Wisniewski has signed a contract with the KHL's Vladivostok Admirals that includes an NHL out clause, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

    Wisniewski has yet to play a 70-game season in the NHL and, despite the out clause in his deal, that's not likely to change with this move to Russia. He's completely off the radar for fantasy purposes.

    Lightning's James Wisniewski: Released by Lightning

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/2/16) Wisniewski was released by the Lightning on Sunday, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Wisniewski was with the Lightning on a professional tryout agreement and despite optimism about potentially making the final roster, it appears Wisniewski will have to look elsewhere for work. The 32-year-old defenseman missed a full year after undergoing ACL surgery, so he could still be shaking off some rust and may find another team willing to give him a shot.

    Lightning's James Wisniewski: Shaking off rust

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/1/16) Wisniewski has shown his vision and passing ability at Bolts' camp, but he's still shaking off the rust after missing a full year after ACL surgery.

    "His reads sometimes are just ... it's based on rust and indecision on how we like to play," said associate coach Rick Bowness. "But for the most part, his positional play is good. He's where he's supposed to be. You've got to keep in the back of your mind he's missed a lot of time (and) he's coming off a very serious injury. You just have to be a little bit patient there." Wiz played 19:49 Saturday against the Preds and picked up an assist.

    Lightning's James Wisniewski: Good fit on power play if he can make team

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/17/16) Wisniewski, who played just one game last season due to an ACL injury, says "this is probably the most excited I've ever been coming into a training camp" even though he's entering the season on a tryout agreement, reports the Tampa Bay Times.

    "(General Manager Steve Yzerman) told me they really wanted a right-shot power play defenseman," Wisniewski said. "I've been in that role the last six years or so. So what better team to come to than a team that loves being here?" Wiz is a low-risk, high-reward fantasy pick this season, as he could slot into a specialty role on the power play for the Bolts. The team ranked 28th in 2015-16 with just a 15.8 percent success rate. And new Bolts' assistant coach Todd Richards understands the value Wisniewski can bring -- the defender played for him in Columbus. Five D spots are all but locked up, leaving Wiz to fight with two or three other guys for the remaining opening. But coach Jon Cooper likes to roll seven guys on the back end and Wiz might just be able to resurrect his career with a potential Stanley Cup fave.
