Description: Flames defenseman Dennis Wideman scored two goals in Tuesday's shootout win against the Ducks.
Insight: He also had four shots on goal and was +2 on the night. Wideman now has seven goals and 11 points this season, which is very solid for a defenseman.
 
10/26/2014 10:17:00 AM
Description: Flames defenseman Dennis Wideman scored his fifth goal of the season,in Saturday's loss to Washington.
Insight: It was Calgary's only goal on the night, but fantasy owners do not mind. Wideman is off to a solid start offensively, with six total points, and those owners need to make sure he is in all lineups.
 
4/9/2014 4:32:00 PM
Description: Flames defenseman Dennis Wideman (upper body) will miss the rest of the season, according to Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun.
Insight: Wideman hasn't played since March 5. He'll finish with four goals, 17 assists and 102 SOG in 46 games.

Description: Dennis Wideman will miss Calgary's next two games with an upper-body injury. SOURCE: Flames on Twitter
Insight: Wideman has just four goals in his 46 games this season. Fantasy owners can probably handle a couple days without him.
 
11/28/2013 2:37:00 PM
Description: Flames defenseman Dennis Wideman has been placed on injured reserve due to a fractured hand. He's expected to miss 6-8 weeks. SOURCE: flames.nhl.com
Insight: Wideman has two goals, 12 points, 57 SOG, eight PIM and a -6 this season so he's not irreplaceable.
 
4/23/2013 3:30:00 PM
Description: Calgary blue-liner Dennis Wideman is doubtful for Tuesday's game against Nashville with a broken finger.
Insight: Considering there are only a handful of games left in the regular season, this might be the last we see of Wideman (six goals, 16 assists) in 2012-2013.

Description: Calgary blue-liner Dennis Wideman is out with a broken finger. SOURCE: NHL.com
Insight: It's possible he could miss a handful of games. Considering there are only a handful of games left in the regular season, this might be the last we see of Wideman (six goals, 16 assists) in 2012-2013.
 
2/17/2013 8:53:00 PM
Description: Flames defenseman Dennis Wideman has picked up a point in three straight games and has seven in eight games this month.
Insight: Wideman is playing at a career-high pace in goals, points and shots in his first season with Calgary.
 
12/10/2011 12:40:00 AM
Description: Dennis Wideman scored three power-play goals and added an assist in the Capitals' 4-2 win over Toronto on Friday. NHL.com
Insight: There's no way that Wideman owners could have imagined this, as he had never scored more than one goal in a game in his career. With Mike Green still out of the lineup, Wideman is seeing the bulk of the power-play time and has had a resulting increase in fantasy value (19 points in 28 games).
 
4/15/2011 11:01:00 AM
Description: Dennis Wideman was on the ice doing some light skating by himself before Friday's practice. Washington Post
Insight: This is the first time that Wideman has skated since suffering a leg hematoma. Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau said earlier in the week that he expected Wideman to be sidelined for another three weeks, but it's possible that he could alter that timetable if Wideman can heal quickly.
 
4/14/2011 3:01:00 PM
Description: Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau estimated that Dennis Wideman would be able to return to the Capitals' lineup in around three weeks. Washington Post
Insight: Wideman was at the Capitals' practice facility on Wednesday, although Boudreau could not estimate when Wideman would be back on skates. Don't expect Wideman to return to the Caps' lineup until at least the second round.
 
4/12/2011 2:08:00 PM
Description: Dennis Wideman has been released from hospital after two weeks of treatment for a serious leg injury. TSN
Insight: Wideman was recovering from a leg hematoma, an unusual injury that resulted from a check that he took during a game. Don't expect Wideman to be in the Capitals' lineup for Game 1 of the series against the Rangers.
 
3/31/2011 11:54:00 PM
Description: Dennis Wideman is currently in a Washington hospital with significant leg hematoma, which resulted from a hit he took during Tuesday's game. TSN
Insight: Wideman is now sidelined indefinitely, as opposed to day-to-day. The Capitals are hurting on the blueline, as they are also without Mike Green and Tom Poti. Don't expect Wideman to return in the regular season, while his availability for the playoffs appears to be in serious doubt.
 
3/31/2011 12:48:00 PM
Description: Dennis Wideman is expected to miss at least the next two games due to injury. Washington Post
Insight: Wideman is currently listed as week-to-week. Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau couldn't say whether Wideman would be back before the end of the season, so you'll probably have to look for another option for your defense.
 
3/31/2011 12:05:00 AM
Description: Wideman missed Wednesday's practice because of the lower-body injury that forced him out of Tuesday night's contest early.
Insight: Wideman is in danger of missing Thursday's game, which could leave the Caps without three of their top defensemen. Wideman sports 10 goals and 40 points but a mere minus-19 rating for the season. (RapidDraft.com)
 
3/30/2011 12:55:00 AM
Description: Dennis Wideman left Tuesday's game against Carolina with a lower-body injury. Washington Times
Insight: Wideman was hit by Tuomo Ruutu, which prompted Alex Ovechkin to go after Ruutu seconds later. Check back for further updates.
 
2/28/2011 3:37:00 PM
Description: The Florida Panthers have traded defenseman Dennis Wideman to the Washington Capitals for winger Jake Hauswirth and a third-round pick in 2011. TSN
Insight: Wideman's plus/minus (-26) should improve in Washington, although he will need to battle with Mike Green and John Carlson for power-play time. Wideman has 19 power-play points this season, including a league-leading eight power-play goals.
 
2/26/2011 12:19:00 AM
Description: Dennis Wideman missed Friday's game against Atlanta with an undisclosed injury. South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Insight: Speculation was running rampant that Wideman missed the game because the Panthers were about to trade Wideman, but both coach Peter DeBoer and assistant GM Mike Santos confirmed that Wideman was battling injury. Don't be surprised if the Panthers, clearly in sell mode, deal Wideman and/or Bryan McCabe by Monday's trade deadline.
 
1/4/2011 8:02:00 AM
Description: Wideman scored his third goal of the season on Monday night against the Hurricanes.
Insight: Wideman has points in three straight games with a goal and two assists over that span. (RapidDraft.com)
 
12/18/2010 11:01:00 AM
Description: Wideman picked up an assist on Friday night in a 6-2 win over Buffalo.
