  • Red Wings' Thomas Vanek: Stays hot against Habs

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/16/17) Vanek scored the lone goal in Monday's win over Detroit.

    A couple injuries have been the only thing to slow Vanek down this season, as the 32-year-old winger has an impressive 12 goals, 30 points and 78 shots through 33 games. He's having his best offensive showing since registering 41 points through 38 games during the lockout-shortened 2012-13 campaign. Additionally, among all players with at least 400 minutes entering Monday's games, Vanek's 3.61 points per 60 minutes rank second in the league behind only Sidney Crosby. Vanek's a must-own player in all fantasy settings.

    Red Wings' Thomas Vanek: Rolling along five-game point streak

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/14/17) Vanek scored a goal and added an assist during Saturday's win over Pittsburgh to extend his point streak to five games.

    In the midst of a bounce-back campaign, the veteran winger has an impressive 11 goals and 29 points through 32 games. Additionally, Vanek's 3.47 points per 60 minutes rank fourth in the league among all skaters with at least 400 minutes this season. While Vanek can sustain an offensive decline and still remain a strong fantasy asset, this might also be a sell-high spot, so don't be shy to field offers.

    Red Wings' Thomas Vanek: Stays hot in losing cause

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/8/17) Vanek netted his 10th goal of the season and added an assist in Saturday's loss to the Sharks.

    Vanek is going through a very productive stretch right now, notching five goals and eight points in his last seven games. He's now got 25 points in 29 games on the season and has been a dangerous weapon on the power play. He's locked into a top-six role and producing consistently, so Vanek makes for a very safe and solid fantasy option right now.

    Red Wings' Thomas Vanek: Two goals Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/6/17) Vanek scored twice Thursday in Los Angeles.

    Vanek potted both of his goals in the first period of a 4-0 win. The 32-year-old sniper has scored four times in his past five appearances, and is halfway to last season's total of 18 goals despite playing in just 28 games thus far.

    Red Wings' Thomas Vanek: Master of deflection strikes again

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/30/16) Vanek opened the scoring in Thursday night's eventual 3-2 overtime win over the Senators.

    That's goal No. 7 for the first-year Red Wing. Vanek stepped in front of teammate Brendan Smith's shot and perfectly angled the lumber to ramp the puck into the twine -- he's made a living out of those types of scores. The Austrian has been Detroit's most efficient scorer, having accumulated 20 points in only 25 games. You could do much worse than have him as one of your top-two forwards.
