  • Red Wings' Thomas Vanek: Will be actively shopped at trade deadline

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5:00 pm ET) Vanek is "certain to be dealt as a rental" by next Wednesday's trade deadline, MLive.com reports.

    With GM Ken Holland in an unfamiliar position of knowing that the Wings are likely to miss the playoffs for the first time in 26 seasons, Vanek is one of the leading candidates to move on from Detroit, and he qualifies as a rental player since he'll be an unrestricted free agent this summer. Vanek went from being bought out by the Wild in the offseason to establishing himself as the most productive scoring option on the Wings -- he has 15 goals in 47 games. It'll be interesting to see who would come to the Motor City in a Vanek deal; based on how this season has played out, a power-play defenseman should rank near the top of the team's wish list.

    Red Wings' Thomas Vanek: Will play Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/15/17) Vanek (ankle) will play Wednesday against the Blues, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Vanek will return to a top-six role Wednesday, skating with Frans Nielsen and Andreas Athanasiou on the Red Wings' second line, and should also see time on the man advantage as part of Detroit's second power-play unit. The 33-year-old winger has been an extremely pleasant surprise for the Red Wings and fantasy owners alike this season, racking up 36 points (14 goals, 22 assists) in 43 games, making him a player worth owning in most formats.

    Red Wings' Thomas Vanek: Game-time decision Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/15/17) Vanek (ankle) will be reevaluated in warmups ahead of Wednesday's home game against the Blues, but Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill expects him to play.

    The net-front winger originally told reporters that he'll be fit to play, though the team cautioned that an official decision has yet to be made. While the needle seems to be pointing toward the veteran suiting up, daily players interested in Vanek just might want to hold off on setting lineups until it's clear that he'll be out there against the Notes. Despite already missing 13 games this season, he's second on the team with 36 points -- 14 goals and 22 helpers.

    Red Wings' Thomas Vanek: Could return Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/14/17) Clarifying an earlier report, Vanek is hoping to suit up against the Blues on Wednesday, but no decision has been made yet, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

    If he is given the all clear from the medical staff, Vanek will likely suit up on the Wings' second line, as well as logging time on the power play. In the event the winger can't play, Tomas Jurco figures to be the leading candidate to take his spot in the game-day lineup. Coach Jeff Blashill should provide more information after Wednesday's morning skate.

    Red Wings' Thomas Vanek: Says he's ready to return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/14/17) Vanek (ankle) declared himself fit to play in Wednesday's home game against the Blues, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

    The Austrian's injury was never considered serious, as Sunday's game was the only one he had missed with that particular ailment. However, he's been held out of 12 other contests this season due to groin, hip, and lower-body maladies. Vanek has the Red Wings' longest streaks in assists (four) and points (seven) this campaign, making it vital to the club that these injuries don't disrupt his momentum moving forward. Currently, he's riding a three-game points streak with two goals and two assists over that span.
