Top Aaron Ness News

  • Coyotes' Aaron Ness: Making season debut in finale

    Ness will be added to the active roster and play in Saturday's regular-season finale against the Sharks, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.

    This will be Ness's first appearance at any level this season. The 30-year-old blueliner has seven points in 71 career NHL games.

  • Coyotes' Aaron Ness: Ascends to taxi squad

    Ness was recalled from AHL Tucson to the taxi squad Saturday.

    Ness has yet to play a game this year at the NHL or AHL levels. Last season, the 30-year-old blueliner averaged 12:32 of ice time per game over 24 contests, recording an assist, 17 hits and 20 blocked shots.

  • Coyotes' Aaron Ness: Sent to minor-league affiliate

    Ness was assigned to AHL Tucson on Friday.

    Ness was sent down in order to make room on the taxi squad for netminder David Tendeck. The 30-year-old blueliner has yet to crack the Coyotes' lineup this season.

  • Coyotes' Aaron Ness: Sent to AHL affiliate

    The Coyotes assigned Ness to AHL Tucson on Friday, according to TSN.

    Ness has yet to appear in a contest with the Coyotes this season. The 30-year-old blueliner will likely continue to shuffle between levels throughout the campaign.

  • Coyotes' Aaron Ness: Elevated to taxi squad

    The Coyotes added Ness to their taxi squad from AHL Tucson on Tuesday, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.

    Oliver Ekman-Larsson is considered week-to-week with a lower-body injury, so Ness will be on hand as an emergency option for the foreseeable future. The 30-year-old blueliner picked up one assist in 24 games with the Coyotes last campaign.

  • Coyotes' Aaron Ness: Appears on waivers

    Ness was listed on waivers Monday, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.

    The 30-year-old Ness made 24 appearances for the Coyotes in 2019-20, earning one assist. A veteran of 71 NHL games, Ness could wind up on the taxi squad in 2020-21 -- if not, he'll likely join AHL Tucson.

  • Coyotes' Aaron Ness: Designated for waivers

    Ness was placed on waivers by the Coyotes on Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Ness's potential demotion could be an indication that Jakob Chychrun (hip) will be ready to play in Thursday's clash with Vancouver. Assuming he clears, the 29-year-old Ness will rejoin AHL Tucson, where he has registered two goals, seven helpers and 14 PIM in 17 appearances this season.

  • Coyotes' Aaron Ness: Called up from minors

    Ness was promoted from AHL Tucson on Tuesday.

    In 29 appearances for the Yotes this season, Ness has notched one assist, 11 shots and 16 hits while averaging 12:34 of ice time. Given his minimal usage, the blueliner is unlikely to offer much in terms of fantasy value, if he even plays during Arizona's two-game road trip.

  • Coyotes' Aaron Ness: Headed back to AHL

    The Coyotes demoted Ness to AHL Tucson on Thursday.

    Ness's name figured to be among those considered for a trip back to Tucson with Barrett Hayton's (shoulder) return on the horizon, and he's indeed the odd man out. Considering he owns just one point (an assist) over 21 tilts this season, the move shouldn't shake many fantasy leagues.

  • Coyotes' Aaron Ness: Promoted from AHL

    The Coyotes summoned Ness from the AHL ranks Tuesday.

    Ness dropped out of the NHL ranks in late December and has been toiling in the minors since then. The veteran fringe defenseman may take another turn in the lineup Tuesday if both Oliver Ekman-Larsson (lower body) and Ilya Lyubushkin (illness) aren't cleared to rejoin the action.

  • Coyotes' Aaron Ness: Sent down to minors

    Ness was demoted to AHL Tucson on Wednesday.

    Ness was a healthy scratch in four of the Yotes' previous five contests, so his move to the minors shouldn't come as a surprise. The defender will log significantly more ice time with the Roadrunners, which will certainly help his long-term development. With the available roster spot, the team promoted Kyle Capobianco.

  • Coyotes' Aaron Ness: Placed on waivers

    Arizona waived Ness on Tuesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Ness has been a healthy scratch for 17 of 35 games since being promoted Oct. 19, so this move doesn't come as a huge surprise. However, assuming he goes unclaimed, the 29-year-old American will remain with the big club, so he won't be heading to the minors just yet.

  • Coyotes' Aaron Ness: Scratched again Sunday

    Ness served as a healthy scratch against the Oilers on Sunday, his seventh time in the press box since being called up Oct. 19.

    Considering Ness hasn't scored an NHL goal since the 2013-14 season when he was with the Islanders, fantasy owners probably shouldn't be banking on him for offensive contributions. To be fair, the 29-year-old has only appeared in 30 NHL contests since leaving the Islanders organization, but could set a new career high in games played this year.

  • Coyotes' Aaron Ness: Called up to big club

    Ness has been recalled from AHL Tucson, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

    Ness is expected to take the roster spot of Jordan Oesterle (concussion), but it remains to be seen whether he actually skates in Saturday's game against the Senators, with six other healthy defensemen still available for Arizona.

  • Coyotes' Aaron Ness: Acquired by Arizona

    Ness signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Coyotes on Monday.

    Ness had been deployed sparingly with the Capitals, with the left-shot defenseman registering only 18 games over a three-year span. Arizona generally lacks experience on the bottom defensive pairings, meaning Ness should have an easier time finding top-level work than he did in Washington. However, the two-way nature of his contract makes it likely that he'll spend some time in the minors. This is a player to avoid in fantasy until Ness proves he can handle a permanent NHL gig.

  • Capitals' Aaron Ness: Demoted to minors Monday

    Ness was reassigned to AHL Hershey on Monday.

    Ness will head down to the minors, while fellow blueliner Jonas Siegenthaler remains with the club for its upcoming four-game road trip. In 12 minor-league contests this season, the 28-year-old Ness has notched four helpers, four PIM and a minus-1 rating. If the Caps pick up another injury on the blue line, Ness is a near lock to be the one brought back up to help provide some extra depth.

  • Capitals' Aaron Ness: Called up Friday

    Ness was recalled from AHL Hershey on Friday.

    Ness and Jonas Siegenthaler were called up to the parent club in the wake of lower-body injuries to veteran Brooks Orpik and John Carlson. The Capitals have a home game scheduled against the visiting Blue Jackets on Friday, so there's a chance that Ness -- who has four assists in 12 games with the AHL's Bears -- will be inserted into the lineup for his season debut.

  • Capitals' Aaron Ness: Heads to minors

    Ness was reassigned to AHL Hershey on Sunday, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

    Ness didn't play a game in this NHL stint, as he was used in a reserve role while Brooks Orpik tended to a lower-body injury. It appears Orpik is nearing a return, so Ness was sent back down.
