Carlo Colaiacovo D PHI 2 Months

Colaiacovo collected his first point of the season, a helper in Thursday's win over the Panthers.

The NHL journeyman has played in just two games this season, and his time with the team could be short-lived if other defensemen can get healthy. He's a low-production blue-liner with very limited value.

Colaiacovo will make his Flyers debut Tuesday against the Oilers, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Colaiacovo inked a deal with the Flyers last Thursday, but wasn't used in the team's game against the Panthers over the weekend. His healthy scratch was likely the result of the Flyers just wanting to give him some time to acclimate himself with his new surroundings, but it looks like the blueliner now set to fill a regular spot in the lineup. Colaiacovo figures to join Luke Schenn on the third pairing in Tuesday's contest, and could also see time on the power play due to his puck-moving abilities.

Colaiacovo signed with the Flyers on Thursday, the team's official site reports.

Colaicovo was a free agent following 25 games with the Blues last season in which he scored a goal and assisted on three. The 12-year vet may now get a chance for some ice time with a Flyers club that is down three defensemen.

Along with Steve Ott and Brenden Morrow, the St. Louis Blues aren't expected to re-sign Carlo Colaiacovo.

The oft-injured defenseman showed fantasy potential earlier in his career, but at this point, he's probably just happy to have an NHL job. We'll see if that happens this summer.

Carlo Colaiacovo will not play Saturday night against Dallas as he will be a healthy scratch.

Although he plyed with energy against the Wild Thursday night, the veteran will give way to Ian Cole against the Stars.

Carlo Colaiacovo will be in the Blues' lineup against the Flyers Saturday afternoon.

He has been a healthy scratch so often this season that he has a permanent seat in the press box. That said, Colaiacovo will get a chance to play against the streaking Flyers at the expense of Ian Cole who will sit this game out.

Carlo Colaiacovo sat out 17 consecutive games as a healthy scratch before returning to the lineup on Wednesday night.

"He was good, moved the puck," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "I thought that pair was very good." He played alongside Roman Polak in the contest and could dress again in Friday's meeting at Anaheim.

Carlo Colaiacovo has been a healthy scratch for over a month.

In years' past Colaiacovo missed plenty of games due to injuries. However, this season the veteran rearguard can't seem to crack the Blues' lineup primarly due to the team's depth and his mediocre play. Colaiacovo seems to be taking a mature approach to his benching. "I've got to keep waiting for my chance and keep doing the things I need to do both on and off the ice to make sure I'm ready when the chance comes," Colaiacovo said. It goes without saying that he is no longer a fantasy factor.

Carlo Colaiacovo was a plus-two Saturday.

He replaced the injured Roman Polak on the blueline. Colaiacovo has been seeing ice time as a forward as the Blues were hurting up front but now will use him on the blueline as they have only six healthy rearguards.
