  • Red Wings' Justin Abdelkader: Skipping Worlds, but no surgery needed

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/30/17) Abdelkader will not need arthroscopic surgery on his knee, but doctors have recommended that he not play in the World Championship, MLive.com reports.

    According to this report, Abdelkader wished to play in the international tournament, but evidently the stipulation behind avoiding surgery was that he'd need to rest the ailing knee. You aren't likely to hear any complaints from Red Wings GM Ken Holland concerning Abdelkader's omission from Worlds, as the two-way forward is locked up for six more seasons and costing the team $4.25 million annually. Abdelkader only produced seven goals and 14 assists in 64 games this season while struggling to a minus-20 rating. Detroit's club being perpetually banged up certainly had a negative effect on the winger's overall numbers when he was able to play himself.

    Red Wings' Justin Abdelkader: Seeks second opinion on ailing knee

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/14/17) Abdelkader will seek a second opinion on his ailing knee and hopes to avoid surgery, the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Initial reports indicated that Abdelkader was to go in for a scope, but it appears that he won't rush into a decision, rather, electing to get another doctor's take on the issue. The talented two-way winger reportedly sustained his injury Dec. 1 and toughed out the final 42 games of the regular season while wearing a brace. Avoiding surgery could put the 30-year-old in position to play in the World Championship next month.

    Red Wings' Justin Abdelkader: Knee scope on tap

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/11/17) Abdelkader will have his knee scoped as the result of a lingering ailment, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Now that Detroit's season is over, there's seemingly no trepidation from the team when it comes to revealing specifics of player injuries. Like most of his mates, Abdelkader had a down year, though he was among the most disappointing thanks to a 21-point decline from the 2015-16 campaign, in which he recorded 19 goals and 23 assists. GM Ken Holland will certainly be counting on a rebound from the Michigan native, as he'll be collecting $4.25 million annually with a modified no-trade clause through the 2022-23 season.

    Red Wings' Justin Abdelkader: Lights lamp with man advantage

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/18/17) Abdelkader opened the scoring on the power play in Saturday's eventual 5-1 home rout over the Avalanche.

    The only team worse than the Red Wings on the power play is the Avalanche, but you better believe Abdelkader will enjoy his goal all the same. That was only his sixth lamp-lighter through 52 games, and he's seen his average ice time fall by more than two minutes compared to last year. Heck, even his penalty minutes are down this campaign -- he racked up 120 PIM in a full season for 2015-16, but has just 38 in 51 games this time around. Fantasy owners of Abdelkader must feel slighted, though it likely doesn't compare to GM Ken Holland's sentiment knowing that this guy is signed through the 2022-23 season and commanding $4.25 million annually, despite giving a return of just 19 points and a minus-15 rating in 2016-17. No, Abdelkader shouldn't have to shoulder the blame for the Red Wings missing the playoffs for the first time in 26 seasons, but he certainly isn't playing his finest hockey these days.

    Red Wings' Justin Abdelkader: Picks up pair of assists Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/4/17) Abdelkader posted two assists with a plus-2 rating, two hits and a blocked shot in Friday's 3-2 loss against the Flames.

    Abdelkader has posted a goal and four points over his past four games. It isn't great, but it's a start, as he has been a light scorer all season. His most prolific month came in November when he posted three goals and seven points. He's already off to a solid start in March, as this two-assist game was his first multi-point effort since Nov. 25.
