  • Dylan McIlrath: Hits waiver wire
    By RotoWire Staff

    McIlrath was waived by the Red Wings on Sunday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. The Wings acquired McIlrath in the Thomas Vanek trade with the Panthers at the most recent dealing deadline. While the imposing rearguard didn't end up playing at all with Detroit, he did hit the ice for 21 contests with its minor-league affiliate AHL Grand Rapids, picking up four helpers to go along with 42 PIM. McIlrath has been a total bust since the Rangers made him the 10th overall pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, and he can be left alone in all fantasy formats.

  • McIlrath inked a two-year, two-way contract with the Red Wings on Wednesday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. McIlrath was expected to hit the open market rather than re-up with the Red Wings, but the two sides eventually came to an agreement. He split his time between the Panthers and Red Wings organizations last season, but McIlrath played just five games at the NHL level. Despite being a first-round pick in 2010, the blueliner has played more than five games in the NHL just once so far in his career. At age 25, McIlrath's time as a prospect has begun to close. He'll attempt to earn a spot on the Opening Night roster in training camp, but the tough blueliner will likely remain a fringe NHL player and doesn't possess a ton of upside for fantasy purposes.

  • McIlrath is a pending unrestricted free agent unlikely to be retained by the Red Wings, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. Known as an agitating defenseman, McIlrath was tossed around the league this season, making pit stops with the Rangers, Panthers and Red Wings. However, the 10th overall pick from the 2010 draft failed to make an appearance for Detroit, despite the parent club experiencing a myriad of injuries and even losing Alexey Marchenko to Toronto through waivers. McIlrath's last two contracts were one-year deals, and he may prove to be a bargain for a team that wants a tougher look on the back line next season.

  • Red Wings' Dylan McIlrath: Comes over from Florida
    By RotoWire Staff

    McIlrath was acquired from the Panthers, along with a third-round pick, in exchange for Thomas Vanek on Wednesday, Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News reports. McIlrath finds himself with his third organization of the season, having begun the 2016-17 campaign with the Rangers. Since being selected 10th overall in the 2010 NHL Draft, the defenseman has logged a mere 43 NHL contests in which he tallied just three goals and two assists. Even if he can secure regular ice time with the Red Wings, the 24-year-old's lack of production severely limits his fantasy value in most formats.

  • Panthers' Dylan McIlrath: Reassigned Tuesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    McIlrath was reassigned to AHL Springfield on Tuesday, Steve Goldstein of Fox Sports Florida reports. The former first-round pick has been a non-factor for the Panthers this season, recording a goal in five games while averaging less than 10 minutes on ice. McIlrath could be recalled this season if Florida is looking for defensive depth, but don't expect him to be a fantasy contributor any time soon.
