Minnesota has placed Justin Falk (upper body) on injured reserve.

He sustained an upper-body injury on Tuesday against Pittsburgh, so he will be sidelined for at least a week.
Jan 14 - 5:55 PM

Justin Falk suffered an upper-body injury that is expected to keep him on the shelf for Thursday's game at Buffalo.

He didn't practice Wednesday after he played just 1:49 of ice time in Tuesday's 7-2 loss to Pittsburgh. If Ryan Suter gets suspended then the Wild will have to bring up a defenseman.
Jan 14 - 4:32 PM

Justin Falk has been called up by Minnesota.

Nate Prosser is expected to miss Tuesday's game due to an illness, so Falk will presumably fill the void. Falk has four points and 26 penalty minutes in 21 AHL contests in 2014-15.
Jan 6 - 2:13 PM

The Wild have re-assigned Justin Falk to Iowa of the AHL.

He wasn't in Minnesota for long. No matter from a fantasy perspective as Falk has no value.

The Minnesota Wild have recalled Justin Falk from the minors.

Falk was sent down 12 days ago. He had a goal and three points in 16 AHL games and no points in three NHL games earlier this season. He has no fantasy value.

Justin Falk has been sent down to the minors.

He was a healthy scratch Sunday against Winnipeg and then he was assigned to AHL Iowa after the game. Falk has played in three games with Minnesota this season, but he doesn't have any fantasy value.

As he is not much of an offensive defenseman and accumulates no penalty minutes, Falk has no fantasy value.
Sat, Nov 1, 2014 01:39:00 PM

The Minnesota Wild have promoted Justin Falk.

Falk has no points and eight penalty minutes in six AHL games in 2014-15. At the age of 26, he has 17 points and 120 penalty minutes in 129 career NHL contests.

Defenseman Justin Falk has not received a qualifying off and looks to be headed towards unrestricted free agency on Tuesday.

Falk was an extra defenseman for most of the 2013-14 season as he played in only 21 games for the Blueshirts, picking up two assists. He will likely be battling for the seventh defenseman's job wherever he signs in the NHL.

The Rangers aren’t expected to extend a qualifying offer to defenseman Justin Falk, according to the New York Post's Larry Brooks.

Falk played 21 games, recording two assists, a minus-five rating and 20 penalty minutes. The Rangers would need to offer him $1.025 million. They will likely look elsewhere for a seventh/eighth blueliner.

Justin Falk played for the first time since December 29 on Saturday.

That's an awfully long time to be a healthy scratch and Falk did not help his cause when he refused to go to the minors after the Olympic break to get in a conditioning stint. He is unlikely to play in the playoffs unless the Rangers run into the injury bug on the blueline.
