2018 Fantasy Outlook
Wideman is coming off a hamstring injury that limited him to 16 games in 2017-18. When healthy, the American rearguard is far from a consistent point producer, having managed a total of 38 points over three seasons in Ottawa. As a result, the 28-year-old doesn't figure to help from a fantasy perspective -- even if he returns with a clean bill of health. Consider him a waiver-wire option if you happen to run into injury problems. Read Past Outlooks

Hits waivers after Panthers debut
DFlorida Panthers  Minors
January 6, 2019
The Panthers waived Wideman on Sunday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
ANALYSIS
Wideman made his Panthers debut Saturday after being traded from the Oilers along with a third-round pick in exchange for Alex Petrovic. He went minus-1, fired two shots on goal and dished out two hits over 11:53 of action. If Wideman is picked up, it'll be his fourth team of the season. If he clears, he'll report to AHL Springfield.
