  • Red Wings' Anthony Mantha: Fair chance of breaking camp this fall

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/18/16) Mantha will be worth watching this fall. "We're going to give Anthony Mantha every opportunity to make the team in training camp," said Red Wings general manager Ken Holland in a report by Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press.

    Holland issue that statement Saturday afternoon, not long after Pavel Datsyuk, a surefire Hall of Famer, announced that he will not play out the final year of his contract with the Red Wings in 2016-17. Mantha, a big-bodied winger, is quickly ascending to the top of the organization's ranks as a first-round (20th overall) draft pick in 2013 . The prospect produced 33 and 45 points, respectively, with AHL Grand Rapids over the last two seasons, and sampled life in the NHL with a 10-game stint in the recently completed campaign. Given his potential, he makes for a nice speculative pick in the late rounds of fantasy drafts this fall.

    Red Wings' Anthony Mantha: Could begin 2016-17 campaign in Detroit

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/24/16) Mantha is likely to open the 2016-17 campaign with the Red Wings instead of minor-league affiliate AHL Grand Rapids, The Detroit News reports.

    Mantha is widely considered the top prospect in the Wings' system. He poured on 21 goals and 24 assists in 60 games with the AHL's Griffins last season and ended up leading that squad with 11 points in the Calder Cup Playoffs. Mantha is a bulldozer of sorts at 6-foot-5, 204 pounds, but his size hasn't come at the expense of his skating, as he's said to be smooth on his blades. Mantha was up with the parent club for 10 games this season, though he wasn't thrown into the fire during the playoffs. Assuming he can improve his defense a bit, Mantha should be able to break camp.

    Red Wings' Anthony Mantha: Reassigned Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/10/16) Mantha was reassigned to the Grand Rapids Griffins of the AHL on Sunday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

    After failing to find a niche in the Wings' lineup, the highly-touted forward will likely finish the season in the AHL. Mantha will be a star for Detroit in years to come, but the organization has decided to take the more experienced Joakim Andersson into the playoffs in his place.

    Red Wings' Anthony Mantha: Will be sent to press box Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/6/16) Mantha will give way to Tomas Jurco in Wednesday's pivotal home contest against the Flyers, Dana Wakiji of FOX Sports Detroit reports.

    This decision might draw the ire of Wings fans since Mantha is quickly earning fandom as a pure goal scorer. Plus, the way that he graciously moves around the ice is unprecedented for a player of his size (6-foot-5, 204 pounds). Still, the Wings really need to win this game since they're currently in a three-way tie with their next two opponents, with a ticket to the playoffs at stake. For as much promise as Mantha brings, Jurco is the more experienced of the two, which is likely the reason why coach Jeff Blashill is sending Mantha to the press box Wednesday.

    Red Wings' Anthony Mantha: Scores power-play goal in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/29/16) Mantha scored a power-play goal during Tuesday's 4-3 loss to Montreal.

    After a successful season in the AHL -- 20 goals and 23 assists -- Mantha has continued to produce for the Red Wings. His goal Tuesday was the second of his career, with the first coming on March 24 -- also on the power-play. He's seeing good time on the second line, and is also getting solid minutes on the power play. With three points in eight games, The 21-year-old could make for a nice addition to fantasy rosters to close out the year.
