Arron Asham logged just 3:32 minutes in Thursday's 4-2 loss to Columbus.
Asham didn't get a single shift in the third period. The 35-year-old was playing in just his fifth NHL contest of 2013-14. He isn't expected to be used enough this season to be worth owning in anything but the deepest of fantasy leagues.
Arron Asham has been called up by the New York Rangers.
He had no points and 14 penalty minutes in three games with the Blueshirts in early October. In 12 contests with AHL Hartford, Asham had two assists and 19 minutes in the sin bin.

Asham surpassed 1,000 career penalty minutes last Thursday at Anaheim. He had no points, 14 PIMs and a minus-3 rating in three games with the Rangers prior to his demotion.
Arron Asham wasn't surprised by the New York Rangers' decision to waive him.
"It's part of the business," Asham said. "There's nothing I can do about it. That's the way it goes, no hard feelings, it's all part of the game. We'll see what happens, I'll go down and play. That's the way she goes." Asham has no points and 14 penalty minutes in three games this season. The physical forward isn't likely to be claimed due to his $1 million annual cap hit.
Arron Asham has been placed on waivers by the New York Rangers.

Arron Asham will be in the lineup for the New York Rangers Monday.
Asham was a healthy scratch in the Rangers opening game against the Coyotes on Oct. 3 but coach Alain Vigneault will use him against the Kings in place of rookie Jesper Fast as the Kings are a physical team and Asham is a physical player. Do not be surprised if Asham gets into a fight tonight.
Arron Asham has an excellent chance of breaking training camp with the Rangers after a strong camp.
Asham's strong camp has put Chris Kreider's chances of making the Rangers in peril at this time. Asham had two goals and 50 penalty minutes in 27 games last season. Look for 5-10 points and 100-plus penalty minutes in limited action for Asham.

Arron Asham and Ryane Clowe weren't on the ice for New York's pregame warmup.
It wasn't clear if Asham and Clowe would be in the lineup Thursday for Game 4 following a question-filled morning skate, but now it looks like they won't suit up. Marc Staal and Anton Stralman shouldn't be expected to play either after they didn't come out for the warmup as well.
Arron Asham wasn't sure if he was playing in Game 4 following the team's morning skate.
Kris Newbury and Micheal Haley were also involved in the Rangers' practice, so one or both of them could be playing Thursday instead. Brad Richards will be a healthy scratch, but it isn't clear who will be replacing him in the lineup.
