Top Sean Day News

  • Lightning's Sean Day: Through waivers and off to AHL

    Day has cleared waivers and been assigned to the AHL Syracuse Crunch, reports NHL.com.

    Last season, Day finished in a three-way tie for 10th in AHL scoring from the blue line with 40 points (eight goals, 32 assists) in 69 games. He was just four points from a top-five finish on that same list. But despite some roster changes at the NHL level, Day was unable to crack the Lightning's blue line during camp and will start the season with the Crunch. The 24-year-old may eventually develop into a bottom-pair NHL defender, but there's still some distance from that opportunity. Day has just two NHL games under his belt.

  • Lightning's Sean Day: Placed on waivers Saturday

    Day has been placed on waivers by the Lightning, according to PuckPedia.com.

    Day inked a one-year, two-way contract with the Lightning in June. He managed eight goals and 40 points in 69 games with Syracuse of the AHL last season but has been a disappointment since he was granted exceptional player status as a 15-year-old in the OHL.

  • Lightning's Sean Day: Remaining in Tampa organization

    Day signed a one-year, two-way contract extension with the Lightning on Thursday, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports.

    Day had eight goals and 40 points with AHL Syracuse this season, appearing in 69 games. He also made his NHL debut, playing in two contests. The 24-year-old defenseman will remain as organizational depth for the Lightning, though a good training camp would allow him to challenge for a third-pairing role.

  • Lightning's Sean Day: Sent to AHL Syracuse

    Day was reassigned to AHL Syracuse on Saturday.

    Day logged 6:42 of ice time and recorded two hits in his NHL debut. He will reprise his role with the AHL affiliate where he has logged five points in his last 10 appearances. He will continue to hone his game in the minors until another opportunity on the NHL roster presents itself.

  • Lightning's Sean Day: Will play against Habs

    Day will be added to the active roster and suit up against Montreal on Tuesday, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

    Day will be making his NHL debut after spending the previous four seasons developing in the minors. Selected by the organization in the third round of the 2016 NHL Draft, the Belgian blueliner has garnered two goals and 11 assists in 19 games for the Wolf Pack this year. Once the Lightning get fully fit defensively, Day figures to return to the taxi squad or minors.

  • Lightning's Sean Day: Joins taxi squad

    Day was promoted from AHL Syracuse to the taxi squad Monday.

    Day has tallied 13 points in 19 AHL games this season but has yet to make his NHL debut. There's a chance that the 23-year-old defenseman could join the active roster for Tuesday's matchup with Montreal.

  • Lightning's Sean Day: Returned to AHL affiliate

    Day was reassigned to AHL Syracuse on Wednesday.

    Day didn't crack the Lightning's lineup during his three-game stay with the big club. The 23-year-old blueliner will almost certainly continue to spend most of his time in the minors going forward.

  • Lightning's Sean Day: Brought up to big club

    Day was recalled by the Lightning on Friday.

    Erik Cernak is dealing with a lower-body injury, so Day will be on hand as an extra defenseman for Friday's game versus Seattle. Day has yet to make his NHL debut.

  • Lightning's Sean Day: Clears waivers and off to AHL

    Day cleared waivers Monday and has been assigned to the AHL Syracuse Crunch, reports Joe Smith of The Athletic.

    Day, who is long removed from being just one of a handful of players granted exceptional status in the OHL at just 15, set career highs last year with the Crunch for goals (three), assists (12), points (15) and plus/minus (plus-3). And he led the Crunch with 38 PIM, all in 29 games. Day did lead all Crunch blue liners with 12 assists, so there's still hope this big, strong defender will still carve out a bottom-pairing role in the NHL. He may get his debut this year if he continues to show well with Syracuse.

  • Lightning's Sean Day: Hits waivers

    Day was waived by the Lightning on Sunday, per CBS Sports.

    Day scored three goals and 15 points in 29 games with AHL Syracuse last season. The 23-year-old has yet to make his NHL debut and he likely won't see time on the Lightning's roster this season.

  • Lightning's Sean Day: Inks deal with Tampa

    Day signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Lightning on Sunday.

    The 23-year-old has played professionally in the AHL and ECHL since the 2018-19 season, most recently producing a career-high 15 points in 29 games last year with AHL Syracuse. Given that level of production, one would assume Day would have a shot at the NHL roster this season, but the Lightning are deep on the blue line, so we wouldn't expect him to make a fantasy impact anytime soon.

  • Lightning's Sean Day: Assigned to AHL

    Day was reassigned to AHL Syracuse on Monday.

    Day was once a highly touted prospect who earned exceptional status in the OHL. He's one of just five guys, including John Tavares, Aaron Ekblad, Connor McDavid and Shane Wright, to be granted that status. But the wheels quickly fell off his game and Day never lived up to the promise he showed at 14. He was bought out by the Rangers last May and is hoping to resurrect his game with a new club.

  • Lightning's Sean Day: Yet to join team

    Day was not on the ice for the second straight day of training camp after being deemed unfit to practice, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

    Day has yet to get into an NHL game, instead having split his previous two years divided between the AHL and ECHL. Selected by the Rangers in the third round of the 2016 NHL Draft, the 22-year-old defenseman may be hard-pressed to crack the 23-man roster for Opening Night against the Blackhawks on Jan. 13, so fantasy players shouldn't be expecting much in terms of fantasy value.

  • Lightning's Sean Day: Lands one-year deal

    Day secured a one-year, two-way contract with Tampa Bay on Friday.

    Day split his time between the AHL and ECHL last season, playing most of his games (36) with the Maine Mariners for which he notched five goals and 15 helpers. It seems unlikely the blueliner will be making his NHL debut any time soon and he figures to serve solely as organizational depth moving forward.

  • Sean Day: Waived unconditionally

    The Rangers placed Day on unconditional waivers Saturday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    The Rangers drafted Day in the third round of the 2016 draft, but he was never able to break into the league. The 22-year-old defenseman notched four points in 16 games with AHL Hartford before being transferred to the ECHL this season. He'll be looking for a two-way deal with a new club this offseason.

  • Rangers' Sean Day: Finally on board in AHL

    Day picked up his first point of the season, an assist, in AHL Hartford's 7-4 loss to Springfield on Wednesday.

    Through 15 games with the Wolf Pack, Day now has one assist, zero penalty minutes and a minus-10 rating. He has spent a good portion of the season with ECHL Maine, where he has been far more productive (15 points in 19 games). Day turned just 21 years old in early January, but his status as a legitimate prospect is quickly fading. He simply doesn't have the hockey IQ to match his physical gifts. They would never admit it, but the Rangers would be thrilled if Day managed to carve out a career at the NHL level as a depth defender. The odds are against him.

  • Rangers' Sean Day: Playing well in OHL playoffs

    Day scored twice and added two assists in OHL Kingston's 6-5 Game 5 triple overtime win over North Bay on Saturday.

    Day tied the game with 20 seconds left in regulation before assisting on Kings prospect Gabe Vilardi's winner at 14:05 of the third extra session. He finished the series with eight points in the five contests. Day is an elite skater and he has a boatload of offensive ability, but he still makes plenty of mistakes with the puck and his reads need a ton of work. Day will play next season in the AHL, at which point we should get a better read on if his physical gifts are enough to compensate for his mental lapses.

  • Rangers' Sean Day: Producing for new OHL club

    Day tallied a goal and added three assists in OHL Kingston's 8-3 win over Niagara on Sunday.

    It was Day's third game with Kingston since his trade from Windsor last week. Although eligible to play in the AHL this year, the Rangers decided to have Day play one final season of junior hockey in hopes of working on his defensive positioning and cleaning up his mental lapses with the puck. He has made just modest strides in those two areas but he is having by far the best offensive season (26 points in 30 games) of his OHL career and he is now running the number one power play unit for one of the most talented teams in the league. His numbers should only increase in the second half of the year.
