Hronek has fashioned nine goals and 22 assists through 65 games in 2019-20. Only 19 blueliners across the league have more goals than Hronek, a second-year sensation from the Czech Republic. Selected in the second round (53rd overall) of the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, Hronek turns heads with his supreme on-ice awareness and adroit skills on the power play, where he's generated 10 points. Keep him in mind for future fantasy campaigns.
Hronek (head) will be in action versus Minnesota on Thursday. Hronek returns following a four-game stint on the shelf due to his head injury. The Czech native will bump Jonathan Ericsson back to the press box, as Hronek figures to pair up with Madison Bowey. The 21-year-old Hronek has already set career highs in games played (59), goals (nine) and assists (20) this year and should be one of the building blocks for GM Steve Yzerman into the future.
Hronek (head) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Wild, Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News reports. Hronek wore a no-contact sweater during Tuesday's practice, so he's nearing a return after more than a week on injured reserve. The 22-year-old blueliner maintains fantasy relevance with 29 points, 112 shots and 70 blocked shots over 59 games. If he can't play against the Wild, expect either Gustav Lindstrom (undisclosed) or Jonathan Ericsson to slot in.
Hronek (head) wore a non-contact jersey during Tuesday's morning skate, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. Hronek is clearly making progress in his recovery, but there's still no telling when he might be ready to rejoin the lineup. The 22-year-old blueliner is on injured reserve, so news of his activation will precede his return to game action.
The Red Wings placed Hronek (head) on injured reserve Thursday retroactive to Feb. 16. Hronek was already expected to miss the next two games with the head injury, so his placement on IR creates a roster spot for the team. In a corresponding move Thursday, the team recalled Brian Lashoff from AHL Grand Rapids to provide depth on the back end. Hronek's next chance to suit up will be in Tuesday's game against New Jersey, so expect an update regarding his status prior to puck drop.
