Red Wings' Thomas Vanek: Acquired by Detroit in free agency
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Vanek (upper body) signed a one-year, $2.6 million contract with the Red Wings on Friday, TSN's Gord Miller reports.

Vanek's last contract with the Wild was set to run through the 2016-17 season, but he was subjected to a contract buyout and hit the open market. While he's working his way back from broken and displaced ribs this offseason and can be maddeningly inconsistent when healthy, this is a low-risk signing given that the Wings can let him walk after just one year. The best-case scenario has Vanek entering the next season fully healthy and ready to work in a top-six role. He's produced 316 goals and 333 assists in 817 career games between the Sabres, Habs, Isles, and Wild.

Wild's Thomas Vanek: Wild will buy out contract
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Vanek, who's working his way back from broken and displaced ribs this offseason, has been informed the Wild will buy out the final year of his contract, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The move will give the Wild $5 million in salary cap space for free agency. Vanek has been a disappointment since joining the Wild as he scored a career-low 18 goals in 74 games last season. He had just 93 points in the last two seasons despite signing a three-year, $19.5 million contract.

Wild's Thomas Vanek: Wants to return, possible buyout
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Vanek has stated his desire to remain with the Wild, Michael Russo of The Star Tribune reports. "I signed here not because this is where I live," Vanek said. "I signed here because I truly love it here, and I want to win here."

The 32-year-old left winger scored a career-low 18 goals in 74 games. He also missed four of the last regular-season games and the entire first round due to broken and displaced ribs. With one year left on his contract, Vanek is hoping the Wild decide not to buy him out.

Wild's Thomas Vanek: Won't require surgery on ribs
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Vanek has been suffering from broken and displaced ribs, but will not require offseason surgery on the issue, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer-Press reports.

Vanek's was labeled day-to-day toward the end of the playoff run, so the issue likely wouldn't have cost him much more time. There's no reason to believe the winger won't be ready to go for the start of 2016-17, looking to build on a campaign in which he tallied 41 points in 74 games.

Wild's Thomas Vanek: No go for Game 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas Vanek (lower body) will not play in Sunday's Game 6 against the Stars, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports.

Unfortunately for Vanek, he was unable to suit up for Friday's thrilling comeback win in overtime for Game 5. Nine goals were scored in that contest, providing fantasy players with plenty of movement in their respective games. At this point, Vanek can only hope for his team to force Game 7, which is scheduled for Tuesday.
