Jets' Kyle Capobianco: Back at practice
Capobianco (illness) returned to practice Wednesday but is expected to be a healthy scratch versus Minnesota, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports.
Capobianco has played in just three of the Jets' 27 games since the calendar flipped to 2023, so it shouldn't come as a surprise to see him once again serving as a healthy scratch. Without a clear path to regular minutes, Capobianco figures to remain a relative non-factor in fantasy contests moving forward.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Kyle Capobianco: Dealing with illness
Capobianco is feeling under the weather and will be unavailable Monday against San Jose, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports.
Capobianco has provided two goals, 10 shots on goal, four blocks and nine hits in 10 appearances with the Jets this season. He will be replaced in the lineup by Nate Schmidt, who was a healthy scratch for Saturday's 7-5 win over Edmonton.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Kyle Capobianco: Scores second goal of 2022-23
Capobianco netted a goal in Saturday's 7-5 win over Edmonton.
Capobianco provided his second goal and point in 10 games with the Jets this season. Although the 25-year-old has been healthy, he drew into the lineup Saturday for the first time since Jan. 30. Capobianco logged just 10:32 of ice time against Edmonton after averaging 12:08 over his first nine contests. His role with Winnipeg likely needs to grow substantially for fantasy managers to start considering Capobianco.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Kyle Capobianco: Gets first goal with new team
Capobianco scored a goal on three shots, added three hits and went plus-2 in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Canucks.
Capobianco played for the first time since Nov. 19, replacing Nate Schmidt (upper body) on the third pairing. At 5:30 of the second period, Capobianco cashed in off a faceoff win for his first goal and point as a Jet, and it stood as the game-winning tally. The 25-year-old has added four shots on net, a plus-2 rating and nine hits in four outings this season, but he may have to compete with Ville Heinola (illness) for playing time during Schmidt's absence, which is expected to last at least four weeks....

Jets' Kyle Capobianco: Heading to Winnipeg
Capobianco signed a two-year, $1.525 million contract with the Jets on Thursday.
Capobianco's deal is two-way in 2022-23 and one-way in 2023-24. The 24-year-old defenseman had nine points in 45 games with the Coyotes last season, finally earning a semi-regular spot in the lineup. Given the structure of his deal, he'll likely see time at AHL Manitoba in the upcoming season.... See More ... See Less
Kyle Capobianco: Omitted from qualifying offer list
Capobianco was not among the players given qualifying offers by the Coyotes, meaning he'll become an unrestricted free agent Wednesday.
Capobianco played in more than 10 NHL games this season for the first time in his five-year career, appearing in 45 contests in which he set new personal bests in goals (two), assists (seven) and shots (40). Still, the 24-year-old blueliner shouldn't be expected to suddenly become an offensive powerhouse.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Kyle Capobianco: Helpers in back-to-back games
Capobianco notched an assist and two hits in Friday's 5-4 win over the Predators.
Capobianco closed out the season on a positive note with four helpers in his last seven outings. The 24-year-old defenseman has yet to take enough of a step forward to be more than a third-pairing option, and he was seemingly surpassed by Janis Moser and Dysin Mayo (upper body) during the season. Capobianco ended the campaign with nine points, 46 blocked shots, 43 hits, 40 shots on net, 38 PIM and a minus-12 rating through a career-high 45 contests.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Kyle Capobianco: Logs helper
Capobianco produced an assist and four PIM in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Stars.
Capobianco has three assists in his last six games after a months-long drought on offense. The 24-year-old defenseman is up to eight points, 46 blocked shots, 41 hits, 40 shots on net and 38 PIM through 44 outings.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Kyle Capobianco: Two assists in loss
Capobianco registered two assists in Monday's 5-3 loss to Carolina.
Capobianco picked up his first point since Nov. 27, logging an assist on a Loui Eriksson goal. He wouldn't wait nearly as long for his next one, setting up Alex Galchenyuk less than three minutes later. In his first full NHL season, the 24-year-old Capobianco has averaged 15:52 in 38 games, recording two goals and five assists.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Kyle Capobianco: Lacking offense in regular role
Capobianco has not earned a point in his last 17 games.
Capobianco has played in the Coyotes' last three contests due to the absences of Janis Moser (upper body) and Jakob Chychrun (ankle). It hasn't led to more offense for Capobianco, who hasn't gotten on the scoresheet since he posted an assist Nov. 27 versus the Stars. His place in the lineup could be in jeopardy again once the Coyotes get their injured blueliners back, but most fantasy managers won't notice if Capobianco makes the trek to the press box more regularly. He's stuck on five points with 21 shots on net, 26 blocked shots, 16 PIM and a minus-4 rating in 25 outings.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Kyle Capobianco: Set for increased role
Capobianco played 13:45 in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Kings.
Capobianco had been competing with Ilya Lyubushkin for one spot in the lineup, but the latter was traded to the Maple Leafs on Saturday. Capobianco should at least see a short-term bump in playing time, though the Coyotes may eventually recall Victor Soderstrom from AHL Tucson to get more top-level experience. Through 21 contests, Capobianco has five points, 17 shots on net, 21 blocked shots, 16 hits and a minus-5 rating in a bottom-four role.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Kyle Capobianco: Clears protocols
Capobianco (COVID-19 protocols) was activated from the non-roster list Tuesday, per CapFriendly.
Capobianco is likely to return to a depth role for the Coyotes, as he'll have to compete for playing time on the third pairing. The 24-year-old is at five points and a minus-8 rating through 15 contests.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Kyle Capobianco: Added to protocols list
Capobianco entered the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Friday.
Capobianco will need to submit two negative COVID-19 tests before returning to action, so he'll miss Saturday's game versus Nashville at a minimum. Capobianco's only picked up five points while posting a minus-8 rating through 15 contests this campaign, so his absence will likely go unnoticed in most fantasy circles.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Kyle Capobianco: Plucks apple in loss
Capobianco registered an assist and went plus-2 in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Stars.
It was a solid game for the Coyotes' third defense pairing, as both Capobianco and Anton Stralman were on the ice for the team's two goals. It was a Capobianco shot that Travis Boyd tipped in it at 4:24 of the second period. Through seven contests, Capobianco has five points, seven shots on net, a plus-4 rating and six hits. He's seeing power-play time on the second unit despite limited usage overall -- the Ontario native could be helpful defensive depth in deeper fantasy formats.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Kyle Capobianco: Overtime hero Sunday
Capobianco scored the game-winning goal in Sunday's 2-1 overtime win over the Kings.
Play continued as the referee didn't signal a goal on Capobianco's shot at 3:24 of overtime, but a review later confirmed the tally. The 24-year-old has looked solid on offense since he returned from a lower-body injury. Capobianco has two goals, two assists, six shots on net, a plus-1 rating and four blocked shots through five appearances.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Kyle Capobianco: Notches assist
Capobianco posted an assist and two blocked shots in Thursday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Blue Jackets.
Capobianco has collected a point in all three of his games this season (one goal, two helpers). The 24-year-old blueliner has added four shots on net, three blocked shots and two hits despite a very limited role on the third pairing. If he continues to produce, head coach Andre Tourigny will likely give him more responsibility, though Jakob Chychrun and Shayne Gostisbehere are the top-two left-shot blueliners on the roster.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Kyle Capobianco: Buries power-play goal
Capobianco scored a power-play goal on three shots in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Blues.
Capobianco got things started at 7:37 of the first period in what became a surprising win for the Coyotes. The 24-year-old defenseman now has a goal and an assist through two appearances this year. He began the year with a lower-body injury that cost him nearly a month, but he will likely play more often than not going forward, even if he's limited to third-pairing work.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Kyle Capobianco: Collects assist Friday
Capobianco logged a power-play assist and two hits in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Blackhawks.
It was a solid season debut for the oft-injured defenseman, who set up Andrew Ladd's tally in the third period. Capobianco had just one goal in 14 contests across small portions of the last four seasons. The 24-year-old will begin in a limited role this year and may still have to fend off Cam Dineen for playing time.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Kyle Capobianco: Making NHL debut Friday
Capobianco will make his NHL debut Friday in Chicago, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
It's a long-awaited debut for the blueliner, who's definitely earned his stripes in the AHL with 112 points in 151 games with AHL Tucson since 2017-18. Most recently, Capobianco had two goals and 11 assists in 20 games with the Roadrunners last season.... See More ... See Less
Coyotes' Kyle Capobianco: Clear of injury, hits waivers
Capobianco (lower body) was activated from injured reserve then placed on waivers Sunday, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Capobianco is about as irrelevant as it gets from a fantasy standpoint. He's only played in 14 NHL games since the start of 2017, posting a single goal on 14 shots to go with 14 hits.... See More ... See Less
