  • Abdelkader finished Monday's 2-1 loss to the Panthers with three hits and two blocks. Abdelkader now has 14 hits and three blocks in his last four games. Once again, he is on pace to deliver triple-digit numbers in the hits category. Offensively, Abdelkader's numbers were down for the third year in a row last season. While the American winger had a productive November (11 points), he has since cooled off with a single point this month. At this point, the veteran isn't the most attractive option in offensive-minded leagues.

  • Abdelkader recorded two assists and a plus-1 rating during Wednesday's 6-2 victory over the Red Wings. The Michigan native has been a bright spot in the Motor City of late with two goals and 10 points -- to go along with 11 PIM and 11 hits -- in his last seven games. The pesky winger is bouncing back nicely after an injury-plagued 2016-17 season with 16 points in 21 games thus far.

  • Red Wings' Justin Abdelkader: Finds twine Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Abdelkader notched a goal in Sunday's 4-3 overtime home loss to the Avalanche. The utility forward is heating up in a major way, dropping four points (two goals, two assists) over an active three-game point streak. Showing tremendous resolve, Abdelkader's been playing through a fractured cheekbone, but his ice time lately has been right on par with his season average of 16:49.

  • Red Wings' Justin Abdelkader: Makes splash in return
    By RotoWire Staff

    Abdelkader potted an even-strength goal in Wednesday's 8-2 home win over the Flames. A fractured cheekbone wasn't enough to keep the physical winger out of the lineup, and he ended up logging 18:40 of ice time to exceed his season average. It's safe to reengage the Michigan native in fantasy leagues if you've been counting on his two-way production.

  • Abdelkader (face) will play Wednesday against the Flames, Ansar Khan of MLive reports. This comes as a bit of a surprise, as Abdelkader recently suffered a fractured cheekbone. However, he practiced wearing a face shield Monday, and apparently is ready to give it a go Wednesday.
