The Montreal Canadiens have sent Devan Dubnyk to the minors.
Well, that didn't take long. The Habs picked up Dubnyk from Nashville for future considerations earlier today and will keep Dustin Tokarski as the backup to Peter Budaj while Carey Price recovers from his lower-body injury. Dubnyk is getting half his salary paid by the Oilers and now the Predators are picking up half of the remaining contract so the Habs are only playing 25 percent against their cap. Mar 5 - 1:43 PM

The Montreal Canadiens acquired Devan Dubnyk from the Nashville Predators for future considerations.

The Predators will retain a portion of Dubnyk's remaining salary. Dubnyk will provide the Canadiens with some added insurance while Carey Price recovers from a lower-body injury. Dubnyk might end up getting into a game with Montreal, but we wouldn't count on him having any fantasy value going forward.
Mar 5 - 12:50 PM

Devan Dubnyk has been put on waivers by Nashville.

The Predators are getting ready to bring Pekka Rinne back into the fold and Dubnyk has appeared in just two games with Nashville since he was acquired from Edmonton. Carter Hutton seized the team's number one goalie position after Dubynk arrived. If he clears then he'll probably be assigned to the minors.

Devan Dubnyk is waiting for his next opportunity to play for Nashville.

Carter Hutton has played the club's last four games. "You always want to play, but I don't think frustrating is the right word when we're having success as a group," Dubnyk said. "The points are crucial right now, and with Hutts playing as well as he is and winning games, it's my job to stay sharp and keep playing in practice and be ready to give these guys points as well when I get called upon." Dubnyk admitted to feeling nervous in his Predators debut, but he felt he played better in a shootout loss to Calgary on Jan. 24.
Feb 4 - 9:30 AM

Devan Dubnyk alloed four goals on 31 shots in Nashville's 5-4 shootout loss to Calgary Friday night.

It was Dubnyk's second start for the Predators and second loss. He had been struggling when Nashville acquired him and it does not appear anything much has changed since he arrived in Music City. Carter Hutton should get another look at being the number one goalie in Nashville until Pekka Rinne recovers from injury.
Jan 25 - 2:42 AM

Devan Dubnyk will play between the pipes on Friday.

Dubnyk struggled in his Predators debut, allowing five goals on 29 shots. Of course, he's been roughed up all season with a 3.42 GAA and .892 save percentage in 33 games.
Jan 24 - 3:38 PM

Despite a rough beginning to his Predator career, Devan Dubnyk will get a long leash in Nashville.

It looks as if Preds' coach Barry Trotz is going to be patient with the 6'6" goalie. "He'll get better," Trotz said of Dubnyk. "It was his first game. I know he was nervous, we gave him very little support early, and it looked like he was nervous after that." Well let's certainly hope he gets better. Five goals on 29 shots isn't going to get it done.
Jan 19 - 1:42 PM

Devan Dubnyk struggled in his Predators debut, a 5-4 loss to Colorado on Saturday night.

Dubnyk, who was acquired from the Oilers on Wednesday, gave up five goals on 29 shots. He now has a 3.42 goals-against average and .892 save percentage this season.
Jan 19 - 12:12 AM

Devan Dubnyk will make his Nashville debut Saturday night against Colorado.

He was acquired from Edmonton on Wednesday and had to get his immigration papers settled. With paperwork out of the way, Dubnyk was able to practice Saturday and was the first goalie off the ice. He will get the call against the Avs.
Jan 18 - 1:11 PM

Devan Dubnyk's immigration paperwork has been approved, so he can dress as Nashville's backup goalie Thursday night.

He was acquired from Edmonton on Wednesday in exchange for Matt Hendricks. Carter Hutton will start Thursday's contest versus Philadelphia.
Jan 16 - 6:29 PM

The Edmonton Oilers have agreed to retain half of Devan Dubnyk's remaining salary as part of their trade with Nashville.

Dubnyk comes with a $3.75 million cap hit for the 2013-14 campaign before he becomes an unrestricted free agent. Nashville will get a bit more flexibility to pick up guys at the trade deadline if they're looking to be buyers, but realistically, their odds of making the playoffs are slim, so the Predators aren't likely to acquire high profile veterans.
Jan 15 - 2:35 PM

The Nashville Predators have acquired goaltender Devan Dubnyk from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for Matt Hendricks.

We're firmly into the second half of the 2013-14 campaign and Pekka Rinne doesn't even appear to be close to returning from his hip injury, so it looks like the Predators felt they needed a veteran presence. Dubnyk has been just about as bad as a goaltender can be this season, but the move from Edmonton to Nashville should help both his GAA and save percentage. If you're desperate for goaltending, then Dubnyk is at least worth taking a chance on.
Jan 15 - 2:21 PM

Devan Dubnyk was beaten for five goals on 41 shots Sunday in a 5-3 loss to Chicago.

Dubnyk's record falls to 11-17-2 with the loss, though it's hard to fault any goaltender who plays behind the Edmonton defense. He sports an unsightly 3.36 GAA to go along with an .894 save percentage.
Jan 12 - 10:01 PM

Devan Dubnyk blocked 25 of 28 shots in Edmonton's 4-3 overtime win against Pittsburgh Friday evening.

Dubnyk improved his record to 11-16-2. He now has a 3.30 goals-against average and .895 save percentage. The Oilers begin a four-game road trip Sunday against the Chicago Blackhawks and it is not clear who will start between the pipes for the Oilers.
Jan 11 - 2:26 AM

The Edmonton Oilers will go with Devan Dubnyk against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday.

Ilya Bryzgalov has taken the starting job in Edmonton and Dubnyk has seen his playing time go down significantly as a result. This will be just his third start in eight games and obviously the Penguins aren't a rough assignment for a struggling netminder to get.
