B.J. Crombeen and Chris Summers are healthy scratches in Thursday's game against Calgary.

The only value Crombeen has in fantasy leagues comes in the form of penalty minutes. Summers doesn't bring much to the table fantasy-wise.
Jan 15 - 9:13 PM

BJ Crombeen will be a healthy scratch against the LA Kings on Saturday.

Crombeen has only played in 30 games this season, but he's managed to accumulate 33 hits and 48 PIMs, not too shabby if your pool tracks those categories.
Jan 10 - 7:05 PM

BJ Crombeen will be a healthy scratch against the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday.

Jan 8 - 8:21 PM

BJ Crombeen and Chris Summers will be healthy scratches against Columbus on Saturday night.

Through 29 games, Crombeen has 33 hits and 43 PIMs, not too shabby if you're in a league that rewards those categories. However, Summers has no fantasy value.
Jan 3 - 7:52 PM

BJ Crombeen and David Schlemko will sit against the Stars on Wednesday.

Believe it or not, Crombeen ranks 30th in the league in PIMs with 43 in 28 games to go along with his 32 hits. If you need a one-night rumbler, he's probably available in most leagues that track PIMs and hits. Schlemko has no fantasy value.

B.J. Crombeen will be out as a healthy scratch Saturday against the Anaheim Ducks.

B.J. Crombeen might be a healthy scratch on Tuesday against the Edmonton Oilers.

There's no guarantees, but Sam Gagner will likely play against his former team after spending Saturday's contest in the press box. At the same time, Lauri Korpikoski is questionable with a lower-body injury and no one would need to leave the lineup to make room for Gagner if Korpikoski can't play.

The Arizona Coyotes will be looking for toughness out of B.J. Crombeen when the season opens in October.

Crombeen was considered the lesser part of the deal that brought Sam Gagner to the desert from Tampa Bay. He is in a contract year as he is eligible for unrestricted free agency at the end of the season so look for a 15-20 point season and upwards of 125 penalty minutes if he is able to play a full season for Arizona in 2014-15. Draft him accordingly.

B.J. Crombeen was with the Dallas Stars from 2007-2009 when current Arizona bench boss Dave Tippett coached there.

"Going in knowing what the coach is looking for from you and from the team as a whole is obviously a nice thing to have on your side, and also having the coach know what you can bring to the team and what you can bring on a day-to-day basis is also a nice thing," Crombeen said. "So obviously it's up to me to go out and do my part and play my game and try to help the team. But it's obviously a nice thing to make you a little more comfortable coming into a new situation." He had 10 points and 79 penalty minutes in 55 games with Tampa Bay last season. He can also kill penalties and could serve as a solid energy player for the Coyotes.

The Tampa Bay Lightning dealt B.J. Crombeen to the Phoenix Coyotes on Sunday.

Crombeen was sent to Phoenix along with Sam Gagner, whom the Lightning had obtained earlier in the day in a trade with Edmonton for Teddy Purcell, for a sixth-round pick in the 2015 NHL draft. Crombeen posted 10 points and 79 penalty minutes in 55 games last season. He will make $1.15 million next season before becoming an unrestricted free agent.

B.J. Crombeen potted his first goal of the season in Thursday's 4-3 loss to Washington.

He has picked up five points and 56 penalty minutes in 35 contests this campaign. Crombeen is on pace for another 100-plus season in the sin bin and that represents his only value in fantasy hockey.
