Top Mark Friedman News

  • Canucks' Mark Friedman: Back to press box

    Friedman was a healthy scratch during Tuesday's win over the Kings.

    Injuries to the Canucks' blue line resulted in Friedman seeing game action after being scratched for eight straight contests. The return of Carson Soucy (hand) likely means Friedman will be right back to the press box against Vegas on Thursday. Friedman has one point in 21 games this year.

  • Canucks' Mark Friedman: Back from conditioning loan

    Friedman was recalled from his conditioning loan with AHL Abbotsford on Monday.

    Friedman had one goal and three assists in four games with Vancouver's top minor-league affiliate during his conditioning stint. He is projected to serve as an extra Monday against Chicago after Carson Soucy (hand) was injured in Saturday's 6-4 win over Toronto. Noah Juulsen is expected to replace Soucy in the lineup versus the Blackhawks.

  • Canucks' Mark Friedman: Sent on conditioning assigment

    Friedman was reassigned to AHL Abbotsford on a conditioning assignment Tuesday.

    Freidman hasn't cracked the lineup since Nov. 30 against the Golden Knights, a stretch of 20 games as a healthy scratch. Abbotsford has a back-to-back against AHL Ontario on Tuesday and Wednesday, which would give Friedman two games before needing to be back in Vancouver for Thursday's clash with Arizona, though he could be left in the minors longer.

  • Canucks' Mark Friedman: Expected to play Friday

    Friedman (upper body) is in Friday's lineup against Seattle, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.

    Friedman left Wednesday's game against the Avalanche but won't miss any additional time with the injury. The 27-year-old has just one assist through 15 games this season.

  • Canucks' Mark Friedman: Injured in Wednesday's game

    Friedman was struck up high by a puck in Wednesday's game versus the Avalanche and won't finish the contest.

    Friedman may have been knocked out cold on the play, which makes the decision to keep him out of the third period understandable. The 27-year-old should be considered day-to-day until the Canucks can provide another update.

  • Canucks' Mark Friedman: Garners assist

    Friedman notched an assist, two shots on goal, four blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 10-1 win over the Sharks.

    The helper was Friedman's first point in seven outings since he was traded from the Penguins to the Canucks. The 27-year-old defenseman has stabilized the Vancouver defense, providing a physical presence in a bottom-four role. In addition to the helper, he had seven hits, 12 blocked shots, nine PIM and a plus-4 rating.

  • Canucks' Mark Friedman: Recalled from minors

    Friedman was elevated from AHL Abbotsford on Wednesday.

    Friedman's promotion shouldn't come as a huge surprise after the team went out and acquired him from the Penguins on Tuesday. Even with the promotion, Friedman is far from a lock to break into the lineup but he should be capable of challenging Noah Juulsen for a spot.

  • Canucks' Mark Friedman: Dealt to Vancouver

    Vancouver acquired Friedman and Ty Glover from Pittsburgh on Tuesday in exchange for Jack Rathbone and Karel Plasek.

    Friedman hasn't picked up a point in two AHL games with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton this season. He has four goals, eight assists and 49 PIM in 65 career NHL appearances.

  • Penguins' Mark Friedman: Waived by Pens

    Friedman was placed on waivers Sunday, per Chris Johnston of TSN.

    Friedman had a goal and three points in 23 games with Pittsburgh last season while bouncing between the NHL and AHL. It appears he'll be in line for a similar role this season, as he'll likely begin the year with AHL Wilkes-Barre.

  • Penguins' Mark Friedman: On waivers

    Friedman was put on waivers by Pittsburgh on Wednesday, per Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.

  • Penguins' Mark Friedman: Recalled from AHL

    Friedman was recalled from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Saturday.

  • Penguins' Mark Friedman: Waived by team

    Friedman (upper body) was placed on waivers by the Penguins on Tuesday, Greg Wyshynski of ESPN.com reports.

    Friedman appears to have recovered from his upper-body injury and looks set to join AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, assuming he clears. Even without his injury concerns, the 27-year-old blueliner has struggled for regular minutes, playing in just 11 games this year.

  • Penguins' Mark Friedman: Unavailable Sunday

    Friedman (upper body) will not suit up Sunday against Tampa Bay, Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com reports.

    Friedman will miss his seventh straight game but was on the ice Sunday morning. The 27-year-old could get back in the lineup as early as Tuesday in Nashville.

  • Penguins' Mark Friedman: Still unavailable

    Friedman (upper body) won't play Saturday versus St. Louis.

    Friedman, who is considered day-to-day, hasn't played since Feb. 11 against Los Angeles. He has earned one goal, 17 shots on net, 10 blocks and 27 hits in 11 games with Pittsburgh this season. The Penguins will get Jan Rutta (upper body) back in the lineup.

  • Penguins' Mark Friedman: Remains sidelined

    Friedman (upper body) won't play Thursday versus Edmonton, Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com reports.

    Friedman will miss a fifth straight contest Thursday, and at this point there's no telling when he might be ready to return. Once cleared to play, Friedman will almost certainly continue to serve as a rotational, bottom-pairing option, so fantasy managers shouldn't need to keep tabs on his status. He's collected just one goal through 11 top-level appearances this year.

  • Penguins' Mark Friedman: Still out versus Islanders

    Friedman (upper body) will not be in action against the Islanders on Monday, Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com reports.

    Friedman would likely have found himself watching from the press box if healthy given the recent performances of Pierre-Olivier Joseph. Given how often Friedman has served as a healthy scratch, he is unlikely to offer much in the way of fantasy value even once cleared to play.

  • Penguins' Mark Friedman: Not playing Saturday

    Friedman (upper body) won't play Saturday against New Jersey, Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com reports.

  • Penguins' Mark Friedman: Not expected to play Friday

    Friedman (upper body) isn't expected to play Friday against the Islanders, Penguins radio play-by-play announcer Josh Getzoff reports.

  • Penguins' Mark Friedman: Ruled out Tuesday

    Friedman has suffered an upper-body injury and won't be in the lineup against San Jose on Tuesday.

    Friedman has played in just 11 games for the Penguins this season in which he tallied one goal, 17 shots, and 27 hits while averaging 15:27 of ice time. Even when healthy, Friedman is far from a lock for the lineup and likely will be scratched once Jan Rutta (upper body) is cleared to play anyway.
