Jakub Kindl and Quinton Howden will be scratched for Sunday's Game 3 against the Islanders.

Kindl saw 12:30 of action earlier in the series, but has since given way to rookie Michael Matheson. Until he drops off or injury occurs, it's unlikely that Kindl will see much action in the near future.
Apr 17 - 5:42 PM

Jakub Kindl, Quinton Howden, and Greg McKegg will each be scratched Friday night against the Islanders in Game 3.

Kindl saw 19 games of action with the Panthers since coming over from Detroit, but posted just a pair of points. Howden meanwhile amassed 116 hits over his 58 games as a rookie this season.
Apr 15 - 6:53 PM

Jakub Kindl might be a healthy scratch in Game 2, based on Friday's practice.

Kindl only logged 12:30 minutes of ice time in Game 1 and didn't look particularly good in the play that led to Ryan Strome's game-winning goal. If he is scratched in Game 2, Michael Matheson will likely draw into the lineup.
Apr 15 - 12:57 PM

Jakub Kindl will face his former team, the Detroit Red Wings, for the first time on Saturday.

The 29-year-old defender posted just 68 points, 149 PIMs, 183 blocks, and 252 hits during his 273 game and seven-plus season stint with Detroit. "To be honest, I don't know what to expect," Kindl said. "From the drop of the puck, it's going to be all business, but I'm sure after the game we're all going to talk and see how it went."
Mar 19 - 6:00 PM

Jakub Kindl will be scratched against the Jets on Tuesday night.

Through 25 games with the Red Wings this season, Kindl posted six points and not much else. Even with Florida he doesn't boast much fantasy value.
Mar 1 - 7:49 PM

Jakub Kindl has been summoned from the minors by Florida.

He was acquired from Detroit over the weekend for a sixth-round draft pick. Kindl had six points and a plus-3 rating in 25 games with Detroit this campaign.
Feb 29 - 3:23 PM

The Florida Panthers have acquired Jakub Kindl from the Detroit Red Wings in exchange for a sixth-round pick in 2017.

The Wings will also retain 15 percent of Kindl's remaining salary. Detroit placed Kindl on waivers multiple times this season, but they were unable to find a taker for his services. He's nothing more than a depth defenseman at this point in his career. His fantasy value doesn't increase with a move to Florida. Kindl has one year remaining on his contract. He comes with a cap hit of $2.04 million.
Feb 27 - 4:15 PM

Jakub Kindl has cleared waivers and he has been sent down to the minors.

The Wings were hoping to clear some salary cap space by passing Kindl through waivers, but it was expected that he wouldn't be claimed.
Feb 24 - 2:29 PM

Jakub Kindl has been placed on waivers by Detroit.

The Red Wings are trying to clear some salary-cap space before Monday's trade deadline. Kindl passed through waivers in January and probably won't be claimed.
Feb 23 - 4:11 PM

Jakub Kindl has been assigned to the minors.

In 25 games with the Red Wings this season, he has collected six points. Kindl was sent down so that Detroit could activate Niklas Kronwall from injured reserve.
Feb 23 - 11:06 AM

Jakub Kindl will be scratched against the Senators on Saturday night.

Through 24 games the veteran defender has posted six points with little else to his credit. Which means he belongs on your waiver wire, too.
Feb 20 - 6:11 PM

Jakub Kindl and Teemu Pulkkinen were scratched from Sunday's match with Boston.

While Kindl lacks in fantasy value, Pulkkinen at least entices with his potential. The young forward has scored 65 goals over his last 117 games with AHL Grand Rapids.
Feb 14 - 3:46 PM

Jakub Kindl will get back into the fold on Monday night.

He will play against Florida because of a groin injury to Mike Green. Kindl, who was brought up from the AHL late last week, hasn't played in a game for the Red Wings since Dec. 29 versus Winnipeg.
Feb 8 - 1:47 PM

Jakub Kindl has been summoned by the Detroit Red Wings.

That brings Detroit up to seven available defensemen. Kindl has two goals and five points in 23 games with Detroit this season.
