Description: Edmonton center Eric Belanger has been placed on the injured reserve with continuing groin issues.
Insight: Belanger had been targeting the Wednesday return. He's only totaled three points in 21 games this season, so the setback shouldn't effect fantasy owners.

Description: Eric Belanger scored a goal and added two assists in the Coyotes' 4-3 loss to Vancouver on Tuesday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: Belanger also won 15 faceoffs, by far the most on the Coyotes. He has been a consistent under-the-radar points producer in recent seasons, as he has now reached the 30-point mark in each of his last eight seasons. He might not put up enough points for fantasy leagues, but at least you know what you'd be getting.

Insight: Belanger has 23 points (7g-16a) in 51 games this season. He had just a goal and an assist in his previous 11 games, so he probably shouldn't be relied upon in fantasy leagues.

Description: Eric Belanger told a Montreal radio station on Wednesday that the Washington Capitals backed out of a verbal agreement to re-sign him. TSN
Insight: Belanger, who signed with the Coyotes on Tuesday, claimed that he had put a lease on a house and enrolled his kids in school because the Caps told him they would re-sign him. However, the Caps needed to make a trade first, but obviously that didn't go down. Belanger's agent is saying that he will consider legal action against the Caps because of the misinformation.

Description: Coyotes sign Eric Belanger to a one-year deal.

Insight: Belanger was traded by Minnesota to Washington at last season's trade deadline, and he was thought to be re-signing with the Capitals. He should likely fit in as a third-line center on the Yotes, a similar role he held with Minnesota and Washington.

Description: According to the Washington Post, the Capitals and Eric Belanger have agreed to a one-year, $1.85 million contract. Washington Post
Insight: The signing may be contingent on a trade that would send Tomas Fleischmann to an unnamed team for a defenseman. Belanger should be a solid third-line center for the Capitals, but he doesn't hold much value beyond deep leagues.
