Arron Asham logged just 3:32 minutes in Thursday's 4-2 loss to Columbus.

Asham didn't get a single shift in the third period. The 35-year-old was playing in just his fifth NHL contest of 2013-14. He isn't expected to be used enough this season to be worth owning in anything but the deepest of fantasy leagues.

Arron Asham wasn't surprised by the New York Rangers' decision to waive him.

"It's part of the business," Asham said. "There's nothing I can do about it. That's the way it goes, no hard feelings, it's all part of the game. We'll see what happens, I'll go down and play. That's the way she goes." Asham has no points and 14 penalty minutes in three games this season. The physical forward isn't likely to be claimed due to his $1 million annual cap hit.

Arron Asham has been placed on waivers by the New York Rangers.

In three games with the Rangers this year, he has 14 penalty minutes and a minus-3 rating. Asham could be a good pickup for any team looking to add some grit, but he went unclaimed in July when he was waived previously.

Arron Asham will be in the lineup for the New York Rangers Monday.

Asham was a healthy scratch in the Rangers opening game against the Coyotes on Oct. 3 but coach Alain Vigneault will use him against the Kings in place of rookie Jesper Fast as the Kings are a physical team and Asham is a physical player. Do not be surprised if Asham gets into a fight tonight.

Arron Asham has an excellent chance of breaking training camp with the Rangers after a strong camp.

Asham's strong camp has put Chris Kreider's chances of making the Rangers in peril at this time. Asham had two goals and 50 penalty minutes in 27 games last season. Look for 5-10 points and 100-plus penalty minutes in limited action for Asham.

The New York Rangers have waived Arron Asham.

He is on regular waivers and not the one needed to facilitate a buyout. Asham had two goals and 50 penalty minutes in 27 games with the Blueshirts this past season. He has one year left on his contract at $1 million.

Arron Asham and Ryane Clowe weren't on the ice for New York's pregame warmup.

It wasn't clear if Asham and Clowe would be in the lineup Thursday for Game 4 following a question-filled morning skate, but now it looks like they won't suit up. Marc Staal and Anton Stralman shouldn't be expected to play either after they didn't come out for the warmup as well.

Arron Asham wasn't sure if he was playing in Game 4 following the team's morning skate.

Kris Newbury and Micheal Haley were also involved in the Rangers' practice, so one or both of them could be playing Thursday instead. Brad Richards will be a healthy scratch, but it isn't clear who will be replacing him in the lineup.

Arron Asham scored what is considered the game-winning goal in the Rangers' 5-0 triumph in Game 7.

Asham now has a team-leading two goals in the playoffs despite averaging 6:22 per game. It was his slapshot in the first period that began the scoring. The 35-year-old has 11 career playoff goals in 69 games. "I don’t think the coach is expecting me to go out there and dangle five guys and roof one," Asham joked. "I play a simple game. I get the puck in, I use my forecheck and whenever the guys get it to me, I try to get it on net the best I can."

Arron Asham looks ready to return from an extended absence due to a back injury.

It appears that Jeff Halpern's roster spot should be taken by Asham as soon as Sunday. However, the tough guy has no fantasy value.
Sun, Mar 24, 2013 09:45:00 AM

Arron Asham is targeting Sunday's game against Washington as a possible return date from his back injury.

"Yeah I think I'm a few games away, maybe Sunday," Asham said. "I've got three good skates in right now and everything is feeling pretty good. I've just got to get my wind going and I should be fine." He hasn't played since Feb. 19.
