Bobby Farnham scored his second of the season Saturday.

Farnham started his Devils career only two weeks ago and now has a pair of goals, not too shabby considering the Devils brought him aboard as an energy player who could be an enforcer if needed. Farnham started the season with the Penguins and now has three points in 10 games with 16 penalty minutes. He actually has more goals (2) than fights (1) with New Jersey although he did get into a fight earlier in the season with the Pens.

The New Jersey Devils can thank Bobby Farnham in part for their 3-2 shootout win against the New York Islanders.

Farnham scored a goal and an assist in his first career game with the Devils after being claimed from the Pittsburgh Penguins. He's not expected to be anywhere near this productive in the future, as he's generally a PIM source and nothing else.
Oct 31 - 4:41 PM

Bobby Farnham will make his Devils debut on Saturday against the Islanders.

Farnham will suit up in place of the injury Jiri Tlusty. Farnham's a nice supplier of tough guy stats with 36 hits and 29 PIMs in 14 career NHL games.
Oct 31 - 12:58 PM

Bobby Farnham and Stefan Matteau will not play in Thursday's tilt with the rival Flyers.

Matteau has seen six games thus far and is averaging just 7:34 of ice time, suggesting he may not be long for the big boys. Farnham's presence gives this a bit more credence, and he's a nice supplier of tough guy stats with 36 hits and 29 PIMs in 14 career games. Much more than anything Matteau has supplied in 55 NHL games.

Oct 26 - 12:23 PM

The Pittsburgh Penguins waived Bobby Farnham on Saturday.

Farnham, 26, failed to score a point in three games this season and hasn't generated a goal in 14 career NHL cotnests, all with the Penguins. He may be of interest as a PIM guy, as he has 29 in 14 career games and generated 226+ PIM twice in the AHL so far.
Oct 25 - 2:16 PM

Bobby Farnham will be in the lineup Tuesday versus Florida.

He has appeared in two games this year and was a healthy scratch in Pittsburgh's 2-1 win over Toronto on Saturday. Farnham is getting back into the fold because Daniel Sprong has a work-visa issue.
Oct 20 - 12:41 PM

Bobby Farnham, Tim Erixon, and Adam Clendening are the scratches for the Penguins on Saturday night.

In addition to them, Pascal Dupuis and Eric Fehr will miss the game due to injury.

Bobby Farnham is eligible for unrestricted free agency, but he hopes to re-sign with Pittsburgh.

Jun 25 - 4:48 PM

Bobby Farnham has been sent down to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League.

Farnham has yet to record a point in 11 games played for the Penguins this season, but has accumulated 24 penalty minutes. Farnham was inserted into the Pens lineup to provide some more energy and physicality but will be reassigned to the AHL to open a spot for Marcel Goc on the fourth line.
Jan 21 - 2:21 PM

Bobby Farnham will skate to the left of Zach Sill and Craig Adams in Tuesday's tilt with the Philadelphia Flyers.

With no points, 19 PIMs, and 24 hits through 10 games with Pittsburgh, Farnham's value is situational at best. To wit, he also has 117 penalty minutes in 27 AHL games this season. Farnham may be a good spot-starter tonight.
Jan 20 - 6:55 PM

Bobby Farnham has been called up by the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Farnham has no points and 19 penalty minutes in 10 contests with Pittsburgh this season. He also has four points and 117 penalty minutes in 27 AHL contests. It wouldn't be surprising to see the Penguins use the enforcer against the rival Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday.

In 10 games with Pittsburgh this season, he racked up 19 penalty minutes. Farnham has four points and 113 minutes in the sin bin in 23 AHL outings.
