Adam Clendening will tag in for Justin Schultz on Tuesday night against Columbus.
It'll be Clendening's 31st career NHL game, and his first with the Oilers - his fourth franchise in since being drafted by Chicago in 2011. He does not project to be much of a fantasy option, but who knows, perhaps he can find his stride with the Oilers. Feb 2 - 8:44 PM

Gaining Adam Clendening off of waivers gives Edmonton a bit more depth to work with as we approach the trade deadline.

Edmonton might look to move blueliner Eric Gryba and Justin Schultz before the deadline. Combine that with the fact that defensemen Oscar Klefbom, Brandon Davidson, and Andrew Ference are all currently on the injured reserve list and it becomes apparent why Edmonton is willing to roll the dice on Clendening. The 23-year-old blueliner was originally taken in the second round of the 2011 draft by Chicago, but he's been used in just nine NHL games this season.

Edmonton has claimed Adam Clendening off waivers from Anaheim.

The Oilers will be the 23-year-old's fifth team and he's played in just 30 NHL games. Clendening didn't see any action with the Ducks after he was acquired from Pittsburgh.

Adam Clendening has been placed on waivers by Anaheim.

If he clears then he'll probably head to the minors. Clendening hasn't played for the Ducks since he was acquired from Pittsburgh in the David Perron-Carl Hagelin deal. He has one assist and 11 shots in nine NHL games this season.

Adam Clendening will not dress for the Ducks Wednesday night when the Minnesota Wild visit Anaheim.

Making his Ducks debut was determined upon the health of Sami Vatanen, who is good to go Wednesday night, Clendening gets the scratch. The second round pick 2011 (36th overall) is approaching journeyman status, with his fourth team in his young career already, dressing for nine games in Pittsburgh before the trade to Anaheim on Jan 16.

Adam Clendening might make his debut with the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday.

That will largely depend on Sami Vatanen's availability though. Vatanen wasn't able to practice on Tuesday because he was battling the flu, so he might still be too sick to play on Wednesday. If that's the case then Clendening will be inserted into the Ducks' lineup, but otherwise Vatanen will play.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have traded Adam Clendening to the Anaheim Ducks along with David Perron for Carl Hagelin.

Clendening has upside but was mostly a healthy scratch in Pittsburgh. He played only nine games this season with only one assist. He will likely also be a depth defenseman in Anaheim and is expected to be a restricted free agent at the end of the season.
Jan 16 - 6:18 AM

Adam Clendening, David Warsofsky, and Sergei Plotnikov will each be scratched from Friday's match with Tampa Bay.

Unfortunately, there isn't a lick of fantasy value between the pair of blue liners who have seen a combined 21 games this season. Plotnikov meanwhile has at least posted 65 hits and 20 PIMs through 32 games.

Adam Clendening has been recalled by Pittsburgh.

Clendening has seen just nine games worth of action with Pittsburgh this season, and just 30 NHL games overall since being drafted in 2011. So it would appear his potential value is limited, at best.
Jan 10 - 12:59 PM

Adam Clendening has been sent to the minors on a conditioning assignment.

He has picked up one assist and a plus-3 rating in nine appearances with Pittsburgh this season. Clendening hasn't played since Dec. 19 against Carolina.

Adam Clendening will be scratched from Sunday's match with Winnipeg.

Through nine games with the Penguins so far, Clendening has an assist and 10 PIMs and not much else. Feel free to leave him on the wire.

Adam Clendening will tag in for Ian Cole against Carolina on Saturday.

This will be Clendening's ninth game of the season, which is a bit troubling from a sustainability perspective. But he's a noted scorer from the blue line down on the farm, so if he gets hot you may want to go for the ride.

Adam Clendening and Daniel Sprong will each be scratched from Friday's match with Boston.

Unfortunately, neither Clendening nor Sprong have been able to produce much at the NHL level this season. Clendening has a point and little else through eight games, while Sprong has two goals and none since October in 18 games thus far.

Updating a previous item, Adam Clendening is in the lineup for Monday's game against Washington.

Rob Scuderi was made a healthy scratch at the last minute and now we know why. The veteran blueliner was just shipped to the Chicago Blackhawks for Trevor Daley.

Adam Clendening will be a healthy scratch in Monday's game against Washington.

The 23-year-old has no goals, one assist, eight penalty minutes and a plus-3 rating in seven games this season. He has no fantasy value going forward.
