  • Flyers' Adam Clendening: Joining division rival

    Clendening signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Flyers on Wednesday.

The 28-year-old defenseman will get a change of scenery by signing with the Flyers, but he'll still likely have a hard time making it onto an NHL roster.

  • Blue Jackets' Adam Clendening: Called up from minors

    Clendening was promoted from AHL Cleveland on Thursday.

    In his previous stint with the Jackets, Clendening failed to get onto the ice, instead serving as a healthy scratch in three games. The blueliner figures to fill the same role against the Hurricanes on Thursday, though if he does get into the lineup, it would likely come at the expense of Scott Harrington.

    Clendening was reassigned to AHL Cleveland on Friday.

  • Blue Jackets' Adam Clendening: Promoted from AHL

    The Blue Jackets recalled Clendening from AHL Cleveland on Thursday, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.

    Clendening has yet to draw into a game at the NHL level this season and has just nine total under his belt in the two prior campaigns. Even if he winds up drawing into the defensive pairings Friday against the Capitals, Clendening possesses little fantasy upside at this point.

  • Blue Jackets' Adam Clendening: Returned to AHL affiliate

    Columbus reassigned Clendening to AHL Cleveland on Tuesday.

    The Blue Jackets activated Ryan Murray (hand) off injured reserve in a corresponding move, so they're no longer in need of Clendening's services as a depth defender. The 27-year-old will return to a prominent role with Cleveland, where he's picked up seven points in 11 games this campaign.

  • Blue Jackets' Adam Clendening: Brought up from minors

    Clendening was promoted from AHL Cleveland on Wednesday, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.

    Clendening will provide emergency depth on the blue line due to the absence of Markus Nutivaara (upper body). If the 26-year-old Clendening does get into a game for the Jackets, it will likely be in favor of Dean Kukan or Scott Harrington.

  • Blue Jackets' Adam Clendening: Waived for reassignment

    Clendening was placed on waivers Monday in order to reassign him to AHL Cleveland.

    Clendening could be an intriguing option for the other 30 NHL clubs, considering he has NHL experience (90 games) and carries a $700,000 cap hit. In 45 games with the Monsters last season, the 26-year-old notched four goals and 33 helpers, but was limited to a mere four NHL games. If the 2011 second-round pick does clear, he figures to be atop the list of potential call-up throughout the 20169-20 campaign.

  • Blue Jackets' Adam Clendening: Signs two-year extension

    Clendening signed a two-year extension with the Blue Jackets on Tuesday.

    The first season of the contract will be a two-way deal, while the second year will lock in Clendening's NHL salary because it's one way. Clendening appeared in just four games with the big club last season but also suited up for seven postseason contests.

    Clendening is a healthy scratch for Monday's Game 6 tilt against Boston, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

  • Blue Jackets' Adam Clendening: Recalled from minors

    Clendening, as expected, was promoted from AHL Cleveland on Friday.

    Clendening figures to continue to serve as an emergency depth option for the Jackets and is unlikely to factor into the lineup. Once Adam McQuaid (head) or Ryan Murray (upper body) is cleared to play, Clendening figures to stay down in the minors for the rest of the AHL season.

  • Blue Jackets' Adam Clendening: Reassigned to minors

    Clendening was sent down to AHL Cleveland on Thursday.

    Clendening's promotion prior to Game 1 versus the Lightning on Wednesday was likely under emergency conditions, which means the blueliner is required to be demoted after not suiting up. The Niagara Falls native will almost certainly be officially brought back up ahead of Game 2 on Friday in order to provide emergency depth with Adam McQuaid (head) and Ryan Murray (upper body) unavailable.

  • Blue Jackets' Adam Clendening: Back with big club

    Clendening was promoted from AHL Cleveland on Tuesday.

    Clendening will serve as the team's seventh defenseman for the first two games of the opening-round series against the Lightning. Although there's no guarantee he will draw in, the blueliner will at least be on hand should he be needed. Clendening doesn't have a boatload of experience under his belt and he's never drawn into an NHL playoff game.

  • Blue Jackets' Adam Clendening: Assigned to minors

    The Blue Jackets reassigned Clendening to AHL Cleveland on Sunday, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

    Clendening was a healthy scratch in both games during this NHL stint, but he provided depth to an injured blue line. For now, he'll assist AHL Cleveland in a playoff push. He may be recalled for the Blue Jackets' playoff opener versus the Lightning on Wednesday.

  • Blue Jackets' Adam Clendening: Brought up from minors

    Clendening was promoted from AHL Cleveland on Thursday.

    Clendening played in just four games for the Blue Jackets in October, but has since served as a healthy scratch whenever called up from the minors. The blueliner likely won't crack the lineup for the final two games given the team is trying to hold on to a wild-card spot, but will serve as an emergency depth option in case of injury.

  • Blue Jackets' Adam Clendening: Redirected to AHL

    Clendening was reassigned to AHL Cleveland on Wednesday.

    Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella decided not to deploy Clendening in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Bruins. The journeyman remains organizational depth as he caps off his seventh year of professional experience.
