  • Filppula signed a two-year contract with the Red Wings on Monday. According to Ansar Khan of MLive.com, the forward will be paid $3 million annually. This is a reunion tour for Filppula, whose career began in Detroit, with the Finn having helped the Original Six club to a Stanley Cup win in 2008. Plus, Red Wings General manager Steve Yzerman is quite familiar with Filppula, as the two were previously associated with the Lightning in a GM-to-player capacity. Filppula's versatility is always appreciated in Motown, and the same can be said about his pinpoint scoring touch. The veteran maintained an impressive shooting percentage (16.3) over the past three seasons, and back-to-back 30-plus point campaigns make him a sneaky late-round selection in fantasy drafts this fall.

  • Filppula notched two assists in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Penguins in Game 3. The veteran center managed only 31 points (17 goals, 14 helpers) through 72 regular-season games, but Filppula has provided a spark in the postseason, racking up three assists in three games. He'll look to keep rolling when the Isles try to complete the sweep Tuesday in Pittsburgh.

    Filppula scored twice Saturday, including the game-winner, in a 3-0 win over Washington. The 35-year-old has changed his game dramatically from earlier in his career when he was a scoring line pivot. Filppula delivered 17 goals and 14 assists in 72 games as a hard-working, blue collar guy. He'll bring veteran presence to the Isles' postseason run.

    Filppula (elbow) will play in the regular-season finale against the Capitals on Saturday. Islanders coach Barry Trotz confirmed the news. One shouldn't exactly consider this a meaningless contest for Filppula, as the team will want to ensure the utility forward with special teams acumen is primed for playoff action after missing eight straight. Filppula has generated 15 goals and 29 assists to complement a robust plus-17 rating through 71 games.

    By RotoWire Staff

    Filppula (elbow) took part in an optional practice for the Islanders on Thursday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports. Filppula has missed the past seven games due to a hyperextended elbow and is highly unlikely to play in the season finale at Washington on Saturday. Filppula is, however, on track to possibly return for Game 1 of the playoffs. The Islanders will welcome him back with open arms as without him they don't have a true center for their third line. Filppula has 15 goals and 29 points in 71 games in what may be his first and only season on Long Island.
