The Columbus Blue Jackets received winger Spencer Machacek in exchange for Tomas Kubalik from the Winnipeg Jets.

Neither player is expected to be a difference-maker in fantasy, if they're even playing at the NHL level with regularity.

Spencer Machacek has been returned to AHL St. John's.

Spencer Machacek potted a goal in St. John's 3-2 loss to Manchester on Friday night.

Machacek isn't the most offensively-skilled player, but he's a hard worker who could find a niche in a bottom-six role in the NHL. Thus far, he has 17 points in 35 AHL games.

Spencer Machacek registered two assists in the St. John's IceCaps' 3-2 win over the Adirondack Phantoms.

Spencer Machacek contributed three assists for St. John's in a 6-0 win over Providence on Sunday.

His offensive outburst helped him put an end to his 13-game pointless drought. Machacek was very productive last season in the AHL with 50 points in 61 contests, so his eight points after 19 matches this campaign is troubling. He had nine points in 13 appearances with the Jets in 2011-12 as well, so if he can turn the corner then he could see time with the big club once the lockout is over.

Tue, Sep 11, 2012 04:00:00 PM

Spencer Machacek has been sent down to AHL St. John's.

The Jets didn't make the playoffs, so Machacek might as well extend his season in the minors. He had two goals and nine points in 12 NHL games in 2011-12.

Spencer Machacek logged a season-high 14:48 of ice time in Winnipeg's 5-4 overtime win over Florida on Tuesday night.

Machacek had not played more than nine minutes in any of his previous 10 contests this campaign, but that hasn't stopped from producing two goals and adding seven assists. He set up Evander Kane's 30th marker of the season in the second period Tuesday night to get the Jets on the board with the team trailing 3-0.

Spencer Machacek scored a goal in a 4-2 loss Wednesday night.

Bryan Little scored his 23rd goal of the season. Ben Maxwell, Mark Stuart, Blake Wheeler, and Andrew Ladd each registered an assist for the Jets.
Wed, Mar 28, 2012 10:26:00 PM

Spencer Machacek has continued to pick up points since rejoining the Jets from the minors on March 19.

He has collected one goal and five assists during a four-game scoring spree since that recall. Machacek has seen less than 10 minutes of ice time in each of his six appearances in the NHL this season and he has registered just three shots over his current streak, so his ability to string together points is a bit of an anomaly. There are still probably safer options available, but his line consisting of Tim Stapleton and Ben Maxwell, have been a surprise source for Winnipeg lately.
