Canadiens' Yann Danis: Signs with St. John's of AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Danis has signed a one-year deal with St. John's of the American Hockey League.

Danis, 35, has a smattering of NHL experience (55 games) but is known mostly as a minor-league grinder, having played 376 combined games in the AHL and ECHL. He was brought in for St. John's after the team allowed 13 goals in its first three games.

Yann Danis: Released from PTO
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Danis was released from his pro tryout contract Tuesday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

Danis got a shot to show what he could do during training camp, but he was a long shot to beat out Jonathan Bernier for the backup goalie job, and will not break camp with the Ducks. It remains to be seen if the team will look to add him to the roster for AHL San Diego.

Ducks' Yann Danis: Will join camp for tryout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Danis will join the Ducks for training camp on a PTO, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

With John Gibson away for the World Cup of hockey, Anaheim needed another body to put in goal, and Danis will be that guy. The organization traded for Jonathan Bernier this offseason to fill the backup role, which means the best-case scenario for Danis is a two-way contract that would allow him to play for AHL San Diego while remaining available for a call-up in case of an injury to Gibson or Bernier.

Devils' Yann Danis: Returning to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Danis was sent back to AHL Albany on Sunday.

Danis' third try at the NHL level didn't go well, as he allowed four goals on just 14 shots over two appearances. The club recalled Scott Wedgewood to take his place on the roster until Cory Schneider (knee) returns, while Danis will now serve as organizational depth. Even if he were to earn a promotion again at some point, it's unlikely he will ever gain fantasy relevance.

Devils' Yann Danis: Suffers loss in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Danis allowed three goals on 13 shots after entering in second period in a 6-3 loss to Blue Jackets on Saturday.

Danis came on in relief when starter Keith Kinkaid was pulled after allowing three goals on 19 shots. The 34-year-old would help the Devils put up a fight and come back to tie the game 3-3 until Columbus found the back of the net three times in under seven minutes in the third period. Danis will continue to provide backup to Kinkaid until Cory Schneider comes back from a knee injury.

Devils' Yann Danis: Makes late relief appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Danis allowed a goal on three shots after entering in the third period of Monday's loss to the Ducks.

Starter Keith Kinkaid had a disastrous go of things, allowing six goals, paving the way for Danis to make his first NHL appearance since March 10th, 2013. He'll continue to play the backup role with Cory Schneider sidelined with a knee injury, but the 34-year-old would make for a risky fantasy proposition even if he's given the starting nod.

Devils' Yann Danis: Summoned by parent club Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Danis was recalled from AHL Albany on Saturday.

Cory Schneider is believed to be dealing with a leg injury, so Danis received the call-up in case the former is unable to suit up against the Penguins on Sunday. The 34-year-old Danis went undrafted and is merely a depth goalie.

Devils' Yann Danis: Returns to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Danis was assigned to AHL Albany on Wednesday, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.

Danis was recalled to take the place Cory Schneider while he was away due to the birth of a child. Schneider should be available again for the team's next contest, resulting in Danis' demotion once again.

Devils' Yann Danis: Recalled by Devils on Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Devils recalled Danis from AHL Albany on Tuesday, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

Danis will serve as Keith Kinkaid's backup Tuesday against the Predators as Cory Schneider is currently celebrating the birth of his first child, who was born early Tuesday morning. Yanis will likely return to the AHL after Tuesday's tilt.
