Kris Newbury has been waived by the Washington Capitals.
Newbury inked a one-year, two-way deal in July that comes with a $550,000 annual cap hit if he plays in the NHL. He'll still make $300,000 in the minors, so he's not taking a big pay cut by being demoted relative to the norm for two-way contracts. That's to be expected as the 32-year-old is an effective veteran presence in the minors. He's not expected to play much at the NHL level this season though, if he's even called up at all.

Kris Newbury has agreed to a one-year, two-way deal with the Washington Capitals.

Newbury had 18 goals, 49 points, and 207 penalty minutes in 63 AHL games in 2013-14. As valuable as he is in the minors though, he has never been able to establish himself in the NHL level. The 32-year-old is a nice depth signing for the Capitals, but he's not expected to start the season as a member of their NHL roster.

The Philadelphia Flyers have summoned Kris Newbury.

Newbury has five goals and 28 penalty minutes in five AHL games this season. His offense doesn't translate to the NHL level, but he still should accumulate more than a penalty minute per game.

Kris Newbury picked up the only assist on Luke Schenn's goal as the Flyers dropped a 2-1 decision to Carolina Sunday.

Newbury saw the least amount of ice time of any Flyer at 6:52 minutes but made the most of it. Newbury is a noted enforcer and while he did not get into a fight on Sunday, he did pick up four hits in his limited ice time.

Kris Newbury has been waived by Philadelphia.

Kris Newbury and Micheal Haley took part in Thursday's morning skate.

Brad Richards has already been scratched and Arron Asham is uncertain to play, so Newbury and/or Haley could be playing in Game 4. Coach John Tortorella wouldn't talk about his lineup for the contest. Newbury dressed in Game 1 versus Washington in the opening round, but hasn't played since, while Haley has never played in an NHL playoff game before and he suited up in just nine games with the Rangers during the regular season.

Kris Newbury is projected to make his NHL playoff debut Thursday night.

It looks like he'll center the fourth line between Darroll Powe and Arron Asham. Newbury played in six games with the Rangers during the regular season, where he accounted for one assist, nine hits and nine penalty minutes.
Thu, May 2, 2013 02:36:00 PM

Kris Newbury has been recalled to the Rangers.

Ryane Clowe left Thursday's game with an undisclosed injury. Newbury has always been a pretty productive AHL player -- 20 goals, 42 assists this year -- but it hasn't translated to the NHL, where with the Rangers he's playing bottom-line minutes.

Kris Newbury could enter the lineup for Sunday's contest against the Washington Capitals.

Newbury was called up by the Rangers yesterday. "I was real excited to get the call," Newbury said on Sunday morning. "Driving down here from Hartford I was thinking of all the things I need to do to help the team if I get the chance." He's an organization depth forward but has no fantasy value.

Kris Newbury has been called up by the New York Rangers.

Newbury has only played in one game for the Rangers this season and he logged just 5:00 minutes in that contest. The 31-year-old has 56 points and 116 penalty minutes in 62 AHL contests this season.

Kris Newbury has been sent down to AHL Connecticut.

Newbury had seven penalty minutes in one game with the Rangers. He's an organization depth forward and has no fantasy value.

Kris Newbury was summoned from the minors after Wednesday night's 4-3 overtime victory over Boston.

The Rangers used Stu Bickel at forward versus the Bruins because Arron Asham (groin) was unavailable. With Newbury in the fold, he should get playing time on the fourth line instead of Bickel. He has posted 36 points and 94 penalty minutes in 40 games with the Connecticut Whale of the AHL this year.
