Bouma notched an assist and a shot on goal in a 7-5 loss to the Devils on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Bouma has two assists in his last three games, and four helpers overall. However, he's also averaged 9:40 per game in ice time, and that's simply not going to cut it from a fantasy perspective.

Bouma scored his first goal with the Blackhawks and added a helper in Saturday's win over the Coyotes.

EDGE Analysis

Bouma is currently skating on the fourth line and doesn't offer much from a fantasy perspective. The 27-year-old did have a 34-point season back in his Calgary days, but his offensive production really fell off in the following years. Chicago's top lines can't always carry the offense, so it's good to see a guy like Bouma deliver in the third with the game-winning goal. Don't expect much from the former Flame aside from the rare point contribution every now and then.

Bouma signed a one-year deal with the Blackhawks on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Bouma was definitely headed for a pay cut after the Flames bought out the last year of his contract that was scheduled to cost them $2.2 million. Instead the Hawks get the 27-year-old for just a $1 million cap hit according to CapFriendly.com. Despite playing in 61 contests for Calgary, the center notched a mere seven points, 35 PIM, and 53 shots on goal. A lock for a bottom-six role with Chicago, the Alberta native is unlikely to put up anything like his 2014-15 numbers in which he tallied 34 points.

The Flames bought out the final year of Bouma's three-year, $6.6 million contract Friday, Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bouma hasn't lived up to the three-year deal he signed with Calgary prior to the 2015-16 campaign, as he's only managed to tally a dismal 14 points (five goals, nine assists) in 105 games over that span. The 27-year-old forward will be free to sign with a new club as an unrestricted free agent, but it remains to be seen if he'll draw any interest from NHL teams after logging back-to-back seven-point seasons.

Bouma registered an assist through 10:07 of ice time during Wednesday's loss to Boston.

EDGE Analysis

After flashing offensive upside and fantasy relevance with 16 goals and 34 points during the 2014-15 campaign, Bouma has five tallies and nine helpers through 94 games over the past two seasons. You can safely ignore the 26-year-old veteran in all fantasy settings at this stage of the game.

Bouma has one point in his last 18 games and recently sat out back-to-back contests as a healthy scratch.

EDGE Analysis

Bouma followed up 2014-15's 34-point effort with a measly seven points last year, and it's been much of the same this season with three goals and two assists across 39 contests. He also threw the body a ton a few years back with 264 hits but has amassed just 93 in 2016-17, so clearly he's a different player these days -- which, to be clear, is one with little to no fantasy value regardless of format.

Bouma recorded just two points in his last 17 games, giving him just five in 33 contests this season.

EDGE Analysis

Bouma has delivered 36 hits and 20 shots on goal during that span, so he's serving his purpose as a depth forward for the Flames. Unfortunately, grinders in checking roles like Bouma don't do much to impact the fantasy world, so there aren't many settings where ownership of the 26-year-old is warranted.

Bouma scored the game-winning goal Saturday against the Coyotes. He also fired five shots on goal.

EDGE Analysis

Bouma's tally 12:38 into the first period was the third of the frame and held up as the eventual game-winner. He now has just two goals and two assists through 21 games this season and doesn't offer much by way of fantasy value given his lack of production.

Bouma will return to the lineup for Thursday night's matchup in Arizona after missing the previous 16 games with a shoulder injury, Kristen Odland of Postmedia reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Kris Versteeg (upper body) missing Thursday's game, Bouma has drawn into the lineup as the next man up. The Alberta native is poised to retake his position on the fourth line, meaning he probably won't receive significant minutes and is unlikely to produce big numbers from a fantasy standpoint.

Bouma (shoulder) is on the Flames' IR list according to the NHL's official media site.

EDGE Analysis

It was already being reported that Bouma would experience a lengthy absence due to his shoulder injury and this move to injured reserve simply confirms it. He isn't a fantasy asset in most formats.
