Joe Corvo has been sent down to the minors.

Corvo will play for the AHL Chicago Wolves as opposed to the Senators AHL-affiliate in Binghamton. He used to be a pretty solid offensive defenseman, but at the age of 36, his days of relevance in standard fantasy leagues seems to be over.

The Ottawa Senators have placed Joe Corvo on waivers.

It wasn't too long ago that Corvo was a solid offensive defenseman, but those days are behind him. The 36-year-old simply isn't used enough to be worth owning in standard leagues and we doubt that will change even if another team does claim him.

Joe Corvo will be back in the Ottawa lineup Saturday against the Bruins.

Joe Corvo logged a season-high 21:13 of ice time against Florida on Tuesday.

He has skated in two games this month and appears to be earning a spot on Ottawa's blueline after he was scratched for a long stretch in November (11 of 12 matches). "It feels good to play my game the way I've played in the past and do what is expected of me," said Corvo, who has two goals and six assists in 12 games. "I think I'm doing that right now. I'm moving my feet, making plays, just trying to make it impossible to take me out of the lineup." He could be worth monitoring if he stays in the lineup.

Joe Corvo helped the Ottawa Senators beat the Florida Panthers 4-2 on Tuesday.

Corvo had a goal and an assist, giving him an intriguing eight points in 12 games. If he can stay on the ice, he could be a valuable depth defenseman. Perhaps he can even fill a blueline void for the Sens.

Joe Corvo suited up for Ottawa on Wednesday night for the just the second time this month and for the first time since Nov. 12.

Heading into the contest, Corvo had been scratched for the past six games and 11 of the past 12. Ottawa has been carrying two extra defensemen this season and he's been the odd man out most nights. Still, it doesn't sound like he's eager to be traded. "I don't know," Corvo said. "It's not something we want to happen, but if there's eight defencemen, the GM has a job to do, I'm not going to ask him or tell him how to do his job. Whatever he's going to do he's going to do." He has five points in nine games this season.

Expect Joel Corvo to once again be a healthy scratch.

It looks as if he will not suit up against the Oilers Saturday afternoon. Coach Paul MacLean did say that could change. But for now, assume Corvo will sit in the press box.
