Look for Carlo Colaiacovo to get a boost in playing time now that Mike Weber has had knee surgery.

Colaiacovo and Weber were alternating in and out of the Sabre lineup as the team's sixth defenseman. Now with Weber out on a week-to-week basis, Colaiacovo stands to get some regular ice time. That doesn't mean he should be on your fantasy team, though.

Carlo Colaiacovo (upper body) has been given the green light to return.

Nov 9 - 4:54 PM

Nov 5 - 11:47 AM

Carlo Colaiacovo may get to play again Tuesday night.

He got back into the lineup Saturday after being scratched for the previous five contests. "It's tough to sit out for a handful of games and jump back in, and I thought it was his best for us so far," coach Dan Bylsma said. Colaiacovo has suited up in three games this season.

Carlo Colaiacovo will be a healthy scratch Monday afternoon.

He will sit in the press box with Matt Donovan. Jake McCabe was brought up from the minors Monday morning and he'll take Colaiacovo's spot in the lineup. Colaiacovo has a minus-3 rating in 16:27 of average ice time during his first two games of the season.
Oct 12 - 2:50 PM

Carlo Colaiacovo will dress for the Sabres' opening game on Thursday.

Oct 8 - 2:43 PM

Carlo Colaiacovo has agreed to a one-year, $900,000 deal with the Buffalo Sabres.

Colaiacovo had two goals and eight points in 33 contests in 2014-15. He might be able to earn a third pairing spot with Buffalo.
Jul 3 - 3:56 PM

Carlo Colaiacovo (flu) will rejoin the lineup Wednesday when the Flyers visit the Penguins.

The veteran defenseman missed the Flyers 3-2 shootout loss on Saturday March 28th but is ok to dress Wednesday night in Pittsburgh. He has played in 27 games this season, picking up just six assists with a minus one rating and 10 penalty minutes. He has no fantasy value.
Apr 1 - 8:11 PM

The Philadelphia Flyers won't have blueliner Carlo Colaiacovo on Saturday because of the flu.

The Flyers face the San Jose Sharks. JFYI as he's no longer much of a factor in fantasy.
Mar 28 - 12:29 PM

Carlo Colaiacovo and Andrew MacDonald will pair together in their return to the Flyers' lineup on Tuesday night against Calgary.

While MacDonald was scratched for just one game, albeit against the NY Rangers, Colaiacovo has been scratched for the past eight games and has 15 games to his credit this season. Though they'll combine for the Flyers' third defensive unit, neither have produced enough value for fantasy purposes.
Mar 3 - 6:24 PM

Carlo Colaiacovo and Nick Schultz will pair up to create Philadelphia's third defensive unit on Friday night against Colubmus.

Colaiacovo has been unable to put up much fantasy value thus far with Philly. Through 15 games he has just three points and little else to show for his efforts. Schultz on the other hand has done a bit better with a dozen points, 72 hits, and 100 blocks over 52 games thus far.
Feb 13 - 7:02 PM

Carlo Colaiacovo is a healthy scratch in Sunday's game against Washington.

Carlo Colaiacovo will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Islanders.

Colaiacovo has been a healthy scratch for most of the season but he had played in eight consecutive games before this one. The 32-year-old has three assists and a plus-one rating in 13 games. He has no fantasy value going forward.
Feb 5 - 6:57 PM

Carlo Colaiacovo will indeed play Tuesday night against Pittsburgh as Oliver Lauridsen sits out.

Originally thought to be out with an upper body injury, Colaiacovo appears ready to skate in his tenth game as a Flyer this season. However with just three points, six penalty minutes and 13 hits, he has no fantasy value.
