Kelly has been skating with Carleton University, but he's not giving up on his goal to latch on with an NHL team, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kelly secured a PTO with Edmonton ahead of the 2017-18 campaign, but he left without securing a deal that would give him the right to play at least one season in "The Big E." Originally drafted by the Senators in 1999, Kelly's recorded 289 points (123 goals, 166 assists) over 833 career contests between Ottawa and Boston.

Kelly was scratched for Saturday's 2-1 overtime loss to Washington.

EDGE Analysis

Despite appearing in all 82 games for Ottawa last season, Kelly has been a healthy scratch for every game in 2017-18. This is especially surprising given Edmonton's recent struggles offensively and Kelly's veteran leadership, but it appears that he'll continue to sit in the press box unless injuries arise.

Kelly will attend the Oilers' training camp on a professional tryout agreement, Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kelly only totaled 12 points (five goals, seven assists) in 82 games with Ottawa last season, but he also averaged over two minutes of ice time as a penalty killer, so he could bolster the Oilers' special teams in 2017-18. However, the 36-year-old forward doesn't produce enough offense to be a viable option in season-long fantasy formats.

Kelly won't receive a contract offer from the Senators initially, but he may be re-signed by the club at some point ahead of the 2017-18 campaign, Postmedia's Bruce Garrioch reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Senators will likely wait to see how their roster looks after the expansion and entry drafts before making a decision on Kelly. In the meantime, the 36-year-old winger is free to sign with another NHL club, but it remains to be seen if any other teams will exhibit any interest in the aging forward. He only tallied 12 points (five goals, seven assists) in 82 games with Ottawa last season while registering an ugly minus-17 rating over that span.

Kelly will make an appearance in Game 5 against the Bruins on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran will sub in for the injured Tom Pyatt (upper body). Kelly will provide leadership intangibles that are so crucial around playoff time, but he's not worth a look in playoff pools since his playing time currently depends on the health of others.

Kelly appears likely to be a healthy scratch for Game 1 against the Bruins on Wednesday, Ian Mendes of TSN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kelly struggled down the stretch, going scoreless over his final 15 appearances dating back to March 11. His playing time had dwindled under the 10-minute mark for a five-game stretch from March 30-April 6 before playing a larger role in the final two games with several veterans resting. Kelly appeared in all 82 games this season, but it appears he'll have to wait to tag in during the postseason.

Kelly enters Saturday's game against the Jets without a goal in 24 outings dating back to Feb. 9 against the Stars.

EDGE Analysis

Offense hasn't exactly been Kelly's specialty over the years, but he has recorded seven NHL seasons with 10 or more goals. Over the past few seasons he has been a bottom-six forward mostly finding work due to his ability on the penalty kill. He remains nothing more than filler in deeper fantasy pools.

Kelly will work with Max McCormick and Jean-Gabriel Pageau in Tuesday's game against the Devils, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Citizen reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kelly has managed just five goals and 10 points with a team-worst minus-13 rating, so he has a long way to go before he gets back into the good graces of fantasy owners. He should see more opportunity to get on track with Mike Hoffman (groin), Bobby Ryan (finger) and Mark Stone (neck) sidelined. Kelly is also a boon to fantasy owners rewarded for work in the faceoff circle.

Kelly (undisclosed) is in the lineup for Sunday's meeting with the Blue Jackets.

EDGE Analysis

Kelly didn't even have to miss a game after sustaining the injury on Saturday night. The Senators will gladly welcome back the depth that Kelly provides, but the majority of fantasy owners shouldn't be concerned over this bottom-six stalwart.

Kelly (undisclosed) was forced out of Saturday's game against the Maple Leafs after falling awkwardly along the boards, Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kelly was scoreless in 6:20, and he was unable to return. The source and severity of Kelly's injury is not yet known. We'll keep you apprised of the situation, but only fantasy owners in the deepest of pools will want to bother with Kelly when healthy.
