  • Wingels has racked up 52 hits in 15 games this season, 16th most in the NHL. Wingels has been throwing his weight around this campaign, but the 29-year-old American hasn't produced much offense, notching one goal and three assists in 15 contests. The veteran forward has proven to be a solid bottom-six pickup for the Blackhawks, but his lack of offensive upside will keep him from being a viable fantasy option in most formats.

  • Wingels scored his first goal with the Blackhawks and added a helper in Saturday's win over Arizona. The 29-year-old has been centering the fourth line for Chicago and barely averaging 10 minutes of ice time. Wingels has shown in the past he can be a capable depth scorer, but the opportunities and consistency just haven't been there in recent years. If he sticks in the Blackhawks' lineup, there's no reason he can't light the lamp a few more times this season.

  • Blackhawks' Tommy Wingels: Subbing in Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Wingels will replace the injured Tanner Kero (undisclosed) in Saturday's game against host Columbus, Chris Hine of the Chicago Tribune reports. The bottom-six center can scribble the box score with a goal or assist every now and then, but he's primarily known for delivering an abundance of hits -- we're talking about 126 of those in 73 games between the Sharks and Senators last season.

  • Wingels (foot) will participate in an inter-squad scrimmage Friday, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Wingels, who suffered a left foot fracture during offseason training in July, was always expected to make a full recovery in time for training camp, but it's nonetheless encouraging to see him listed on Team A's roster for Friday's scrimmage. The 29-year-old winger should be a solid bottom-six contributor for the Blackhawks in 2017-18, but he likely won't produce enough offense to warrant consideration in most season-long fantasy formats.

  • Wingels suffered a left foot fracture during offseason training Friday, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports. Wingels is expected to make a full recovery in 6-to-8 weeks, so he should be a full participant in September's training camp. The 29-year-old winger, who notched 12 points (seven goals, five assists) in 73 games last season, won't produce enough offensively in 2017-18 to warrant consideration in most season-long fantasy leagues, but he'll be a key component of the Blackhawks' bottom-six forward group and penalty-killing unit.
