Craig Cunningham has been recalled on loan up to Coyotes.

The 25-year-old forward is having a nice season for AHL Springfield, collecting five goals and nine points in 12 games so far. Despite a fair amount of success in the minors, Cunningham has yet to figure out the big boys. He's posted just seven points in 53 career NHL games with Boston and Arizona.

Craig Cunningham has signed a new one-year, two-way contract worth $600K with the Arizona Coyotes.

Cunningham has seen just 53 NHL games since being drafted by Boston in 2010. Since then, he's played mostly in the AHL. Last season he had a good year with AHL Providence, scoring 15 points in 21 games. He was later claimed off waivers by Arizona in March, where he played 19 games and scored just four points.
Jul 1 - 7:47 PM

Craig Cunningham scored and added an assist in Arizona's 3-2 loss to Calgary on Tuesday.

Cunningham was the beneficiary of a Jonas Hiller turnover in the third period and he made no mistake finding the back of the net for his third goal of the year. With seven points in 49 games, he is not a fantasy option. B.J Crombeen scored the other marker for the Coyotes in a losing cause.
Apr 8 - 12:31 AM

Craig Cunningham will debut as the third line center between Lauri Korpikoski and David Moss for the Coyotes on Tuesday night versus the Ducks.

In 32 games for the Bruins this season, Cunningham put up just three points along with 70 hits and winning half of his 94 faceoffs.
Mar 3 - 8:47 PM

Craig Cunningham has been claimed off waivers by the Arizona Coyotes.

Mar 2 - 12:09 PM

The Boston Bruins have placed Craig Cunningham on waivers.

The 24-year-old has two goals and three points in 32 games this season.
Mar 1 - 12:34 PM

Craig Cunningham will be scratch against the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday evening.

Unfortunately, the rookie winger Cunningham just doesn't have much fantasy value at the moment. Over 32 games this season he has three points and 70 hits.
Feb 28 - 5:34 PM

Craig Cunningham will be scratched against the New Jersey Devils on Friday night.

In 32 games for the Bruins this season, Cunningham has just three points to go along with 70 hits. Unfortunately, the 24 year old winger just doesn't have any fantasy value at the moment.
Feb 27 - 6:18 PM

Craig Cunningham will be scratched Tuesday night against the Vancouver Canucks.

Over 32 games for the Bruins this season, Cunningham has just a pair of goals and three total points. Though he does also have 70 hits over that time, the 24 year old winger is not much of a fantasy factor.
Feb 24 - 6:21 PM

Craig Cunningham has become a versatile player for coach Claude Julien.

"I think Cunny's become a real valuable player for us," said Julien. "He'll take draws, he's a right-handed shot, which we don't have a ton of, especially on the wings. He can play both those positions. He's very reliable. You can move him up at times during games and he's become a very valuable asset for us." He mostly skates on the fourth line, but he did replace rookie David Pastrnak on the top unit when Boston was trying to protect a third-period lead in Dallas on Tuesday. However, Cunningham has two goals and one assist in 23 games, so he doesn't provide value to your fantasy squad.

Craig Cunningham's play has impressed Boston coach Claude Julien.

He will skate on the Bruins' fourth line Saturday night (alongside Jordan Caron and Gregory Campbell) in place of Daniel Paille, who will move up to the second unit in place of the suspended Brad Marchand. Cunningham, who is now a veteran of 20 NHL games and has two goals to his name, shows great desire on the ice and has a decent hockey IQ which are not lost on the Bruins' coach. "He's a guy we can rely on for faceoffs and versatility is important for us," said Julien. "He's a hard worker, he plays hard and practices hard, and he's a smart player." Nice praise. That said, Cunningham has no fantasy value, at least for now.
Jan 17 - 9:05 AM

Craig Cunningham scored his first NHL goal in Saturday's 3-2 shootout loss to Ottawa.

Cunningham played well on a line with Chris Kelly and Milan Lucic. "It’s always nice to get your first one. The first goal you always remember," said Cunningham. "But in the end it didn’t really matter tonight. At this point in the season wherever we are right now, it’s about wins and losses." The 24-year-old was Boston's fourth round pick in 2010, but he has played in just seven games for the Bruins in his career. He has one goal in five games this season.

Boston has summoned Craig Cunningham from the minors.

Simon Gagne was given an indefinite leave of absence to be his father, who is suffering from terminal cancer. Cunningham will help fill in for the team. He's appeared in three games with the bib club this year and he doesn't have a point.
