Description: The Vancouver Canucks have signed Marco Sturm to a one-year contract worth $2.25 million. TSN
Insight: Sturm could pay off for the Canucks if he has fully recovered from the injuries that have sidelined him the past few seasons. He should fill the secondary scoring void left by Raffi Torres, who signed with Phoenix earlier in the day.

Description: The Washington Capitals have claimed forward Marco Sturm off waivers from the Los Angeles Kings. TSN
Insight: Sturm will likely fit in as a second-liner at best for the Capitals. He could show some fantasy value if he catches fire, but he has been too injury-prone to rely upon long-term.

Description: The Los Angeles Kings have placed forward Marco Sturm on waivers. LA Kings Insider

Description: The Los Angeles Kings have activated Marco Sturm from injured reserve, and he should be in the lineup for Wednesday's game against Anaheim. ESPN
Insight: Sturm has missed the past 14 games with a lower-body injury. He is too much of an injury risk to subscribe to long-term in fantasy leagues.

Description: The Los Angeles Kings have placed Marco Sturm on injured reserve with a lower-body injury. SLAM Sports
Insight: The IR move is retroactive to January 18. The Kings have recalled Loktionov from Ontario of the ECHL to take Sturm's place in the lineup.
 
12/20/2010 7:30:00 PM
Description: Marco Sturm will make his Kings debut on Tuesday against Colorado. Los Angeles Times
Insight: Kings coach Terry Murray plans to ease Sturm into the Kings' lineup, placing him on the fourth line with Trevor Lewis and Alexei Ponikarovsky. Sturm will be playing his first game of the season after offseason knee surgery, so he will need at least a few games to shake the rust off before he should be considered for fantasy teams.
 
12/14/2010 6:33:00 PM
Description: Marco Sturm has passed his physical and will report to the Los Angeles Kings. Los Angeles Times
Insight: Sturm will practice with the Kings in St. Louis on Wednesday, although he won't likely see game action right away because of his injury.
 
12/11/2010 12:07:00 PM
Description: The trade talks between the Boston Bruins and the Los Angeles Kings regarding Marco Sturm are on again. TSN
Insight: The trade could be finalized as early as Saturday. Once the trade is finalized, Sturm would need to pass a physical first. The Bruins will likely receive a draft pick in return.
 
12/2/2010 10:47:00 PM
Description: According to Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli, Marco Sturm has not been traded to the Los Angeles Kings. TSN
Insight: The trade to the Kings is reportedly being held up by medical issues pertaining to Sturm's ACL and MCL surgery. Chiarelli confirmed that they have talked to Sturm about waiving his no-trade clause. If the B's can't trade Sturm within the two to three weeks that he is expected to be sidelined, then they will probably have to send him to the AHL to fall under the salary cap.
 
12/2/2010 3:14:00 PM
Description: The Boston Bruins have traded winger Marco Sturm to the Los Angeles Kings for what is believed to be a conditional draft choice. TSN
Insight: Sturm will not be in the Kings' lineup for another two to three weeks, as he is still recovering from offseason knee surgery. The Bruins needed to clear some cap space to allow for the return of Marc Savard.
 
9/15/2010 12:36:00 AM
Description: Marco Sturm is targeting a return to the Bruins' lineup in mid-November after undergoing offseason knee surgery. CSNNE.com
Insight: Sturm may take his time returning to the Bruins' lineup, so a return sometime in December is not out of the question. The Bruins are tight for cap space, so his return is worth monitoring not only for his fantasy value, but also the status of other Bruins' forwards. Sturm currently earns $3.5 million per season, but the salary is off the books as long as he's sidelined.
