Darcy Hordichuk has yet to pick up a penalty in six AHL games.
Hordichuk was sent to the minors as the Oilers did not see a need for an enforcer despite having some young stars on the team like Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Nail Yakupov. Apparently no one in the AHL wants to tangle with Hordichuk at this time and unless some young gun wants to try and make a reputation for himself, do not expect to see Hordichuk in too many fights in the AHL.

Darcy Hordichuk has cleared waivers and will be loaned to AHL Oklahoma City.

Darcy Hordichuk has been placed on waivers by the Edmonton Oilers.

Hordichuk has no points in four contests this season. When he plays regularly, he does accumulate more than a PIM per game, but he still isn't worth owning in standard leagues.

Darcy Hordichuk worked on becoming a more well-rounded player during the summer and lockout.

Oilers head coach Ralph Krueger approached Hordichuk and told him that they see him playing in a role beyond protecting their young, skill players. "They wanted me to work on my quickness and speed and my (conditioning), too," Hordichuk said. "I really took these last six months seriously and maybe more than ever worked on my game." Unfortunately, Hordichuk still probably won't get much playing time and that will severely limit his fantasy value. Don't draft him in standard leagues.

Darcy Hordichuk hopes that the Edmonton Oilers will bring him back next season.

He also admits that it's far from a guarantee. Either way, he's unlikely to make a big impact in fantasy or on the ice.

Darcy Hordichuk netted his first goal of 2011-12 on Tuesday.

There's a chance that Darcy Hordichuk won't play in Friday's game.

Hordichuk's wife is apparently very close to having their second child, so that obviously has the potential to impact his plans. He is otherwise penciled in to play Friday.

Wednesday's game in Edmonton between the Oilers and Minnesota Wild will be a quick rematch from Friday's Wild loss, one in which Edmonton forward Darcy Hordichuk goaded Wild winger Brad Staubitz into eight minutes of penalties.

"It's all a part of the game," he said. "I took some dumb penalties. But this is a whole new game." While Staubitz admitted he took "some dumb penalties," he added he'll be careful tonight. Hordichuk, meanwhile, said: "Staubitz is a guy that likes to be physical and runs around. I'm out there to my job and he's out there to do his job. Some days I'll take penalties and some days he'll take penalties."

Darcy Hordichuk played in his 500th NHL game on Friday and was a key factor in the victory.

While Hordichuk only had a minor in the third period and played only 4:44 minutes all game, he goaded the Wild's Brad Staubitz into a pair of double minors in the first period, leading to one power play goal and putting the Wild on their heels. Congratulations to Darcy on the 500 milestone.

Darcy Hordichuk (knee) will return to the Edmonton Oilers' lineup on Monday.

Hordichuk is a defensive forward that will give you about two penalty minutes per game, but next to nothing else. In other words, he's only worth owning in the deepest of leagues.

Darcy Hordichuk (knee) is getting close to his return to the Oilers' lineup.

Hordichuk hasn't played since October 17th because of the injury. "Every day I’m getting my agility back a little bit and I’m trying to work on my quickness a bit more, so then when I do get back in the lineup, I’m able to be effect and get those hits," said Hordichuk. "It’s been a positive the last few practices, I’m getting to my hits a little more in practice and starting to get there. It’s something hopefully we’re a few days away from."

Darcy Hordichuk left Saturday night's game against the Canucks in the first period after colliding with Keith Ballard and allegedly injuring his knee.

He has been playing very limited minutes but has a little fantasy value as he is one of the Oilers' enforcers. Consider Hordichuk day-to-day for now.

Darcy Hordichuk played all of 59 seconds in Edmonton's season opener on Sunday.

Part of the reason for that was because Edmonton fell behind 1-0 early in the first period and didn't tie the game until late in the third. Hordichuk has little to no fantasy value.

Darcy Hordichuk has had three fights in his first two pre-season games with the Edmonton Oilers.

Hordichuk is trying to fight his way onto the Oilers roster and it looks like he may be succeeding. He had 76 penalty minutes in 64 games with the Panthers last season but look for him to improve on that stat if he cracks the Oilers lineup as a regular or even semi-regular. He should be on your radar for a supplement pick in deep drafts that use penalty minutes as a positive category.
