  • Red Wings' Joe Vitale: Placed on long-term IR
    By RotoWire Staff

    Vitale (concussion) is listed on long-term injured reserve, the Detroit Free Press reports. Vitale was a throw-in player from Arizona during the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, when the Red Wings were able to get rid of Pavel Datsyuk's $7.5 cap hit after deciding he wouldn't play out the final year of his contract. He hasn't played since sustaining the concussion in the first game last season and remains out indefinitely.

  • Vitale (concussion) has been ruled out for the season by Red Wings general manager Ken Holland, Mike Halford of NBCSports.com reports. Vitale suffered the concussion after a fight with Boston's Kevan Miller last October, and was limited to just the one game. The 31-year-old center, along with two draft picks, was traded from Arizona to Detroit for Pavel Datsyuk and the 16th overall pick during the offseason.

  • Red Wings' Joe Vitale: Swaps sweaters Friday
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Coyotes traded Vitale (concussion) and a pair of 2016 draft picks (No. 20, No. 53 overall) to the Red Wings on Friday in exchange for Pavel Datsyuk and the 16th overall selection in 2016. Vitale only appeared in one game in the 2015-16 season, as he was TKO'd by Boston's Kevan Miller in a fight last October. The 30-year-old fractured his orbital bone and ultimately experienced "concussion-related issues." It's not clear how Vitale's recovery is going, but the Wings still must be ecstatic with this deal since it means the club no longer has to worry about Datsyuk's $7.5 million cap hit for the upcoming season.

  • Coyotes' Joe Vitale: Out for season
    By RotoWire Staff

    Vitale (concussion-related issues) will miss the remainder of the season, Sarah McLellan of AZCentral reports. "There's been no real measurable progress," general manager Don Maloney said. Vitale played in just one game this season, fighting the Bruins' Kevan Miller and is still suffering ill-effects from that. Vitale has 44 points in 234 career NHL games and hasn't broken 14 points in a NHL season. He'll miss the remainder of the season as a result of this injury, though it's still unclear as to the specifics of what happened.

  • Coyotes' Joe Vitale: Out 4-6 weeks
    By RotoWire Staff

    Vitale will be sidelined for the next 4-to-6 weeks with a fractured orbital bone, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports. Vitale reportedly suffered the injury during his fight with the Bruins' Kevan Miller in Saturday's tilt against Boston. Vitale was placed on injured reserve Monday, and could now land on long-term injured reserve given his recovery timetable. The 30-year-old forward doesn't have any value in fantasy leagues, so his absence isn't anything owners need to concern themselves with.
