  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Draws helper in win

    Oesterle recorded an assist and two hits in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Golden Knights.

    Oesterle ended a six-game point drought with his helper on a Joe Veleno goal in the second period. In that span, Oesterle was also a healthy scratch three times, though he seems to maintain the inside edge for playing time over Gustav Lindstrom. Oesterle is up to four points, 31 shots on net, 24 hits, 38 blocked shots and an even plus-minus rating in 31 appearances this season as a third-pairing defenseman.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Deposits third-period tally

    Oesterle scored a goal during a 6-3 loss to the host Sabres on Thursday.

    With the Red Wings trailing 5-2 in the third period, Oesterle scored his first goal in 14 games, fueling another late rally, though this one fell short. The Red Wings on Wednesday came back from a 4-0 road deficit vs. the Penguins to win for the first time in team history. The 30-year-old blueliner recorded his first point in 12 games Thursday since drawing a helper during a loss to the Sabres on Nov. 30. Oesterle added two shots and two blocks in the contest.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Caught in lengthy slump

    Oesterle heads into the holiday break mired in a 10-game point drought, and the defenseman is minus-8 over that span.

    Despite his recent struggles, Oesterle is more experienced than Gustav Lindstrom, which makes him the preferred option to round out the third pair with Olli Maatta. However, with the Wings away from game ice until next Wednesday against the Penguins, this affords more recovery time for Robert Hagg (undisclosed), who could ultimately pose a threat to Oesterle's playing time.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Chips in with assist

    Oesterle produced an assist, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Sabres.

    Over the last three games, Oesterle has picked up his first goal and first assist of the season. The 30-year-old has seen a regular run in the lineup with Gustav Lindstrom (undisclosed) unavailable. Oesterle has added 13 hits, 15 blocked shots, 12 shots on goal and a plus-10 rating through 12 appearances as a fill-in on the third pairing.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Scores first goal of season

    Oesterle scored a goal in the Red Wings' 4-3 shootout win against Arizona on Friday.

    Oesterle had no points in nine games in 2022-23 before Friday's contest. He's a depth defenseman who was regularly a healthy scratch early in the season. He has drawn into the lineup in nine of Detroit's last 10 games, but he's been primarily serving on the third pairing and hasn't been getting time on the power play. With that limited role in mind, not much is expected of him offensively.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Remains solid depth option

    Oesterle is looking for his first point this season, but he's plus-7 through eight contests.

    Oesterle is doing a great job of limiting mistakes as a depth option on the blue line. Granted, the Michigan native is averaging 14:17 of ice time -- which marks a four-minute drop compared to last season -- but Oesterle can help in a pinch as he compensates for the absence of Gustav Lindstrom (undisclosed).

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Finishes first year with Wings

    Oesterle completed his first campaign with the Red Wings, adding two goals and six assists against a minus-7 rating through 45 games.

    The Michigan native is a journeyman who's grown accustomed to serving in a depth role. Oesterle has another year on his Red Wings contract valued at $1.35 million.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Clutches up in overtime

    Oesterle scored a goal on two shots in Monday's 2-1 overtime win over the Ducks.

    Dylan Larkin won a faceoff back to Oesterle, who buried his first goal of the season at 2:11 of overtime. The 29-year-old defenseman has played in the Red Wings' last four games -- he typically sees significant playing time in the high teens and low 20s when he's in the lineup. Oesterle has five points, 37 shots on net, 23 blocked shots and a minus-1 rating in 24 contests overall. He doesn't excel in any one area, and his place in the lineup is far from secure, so he's not going to be that helpful in fantasy.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Picks up helper Wednesday

    Oesterle notched an assist and two shots on goal in Wednesday's 8-5 loss to the Blackhawks.

    Back in action after five games as a healthy scratch, Oesterle got on the scoresheet by setting up a Pius Suter goal in the second period. The 29-year-old Oesterle has mustered just four helpers, 30 shots on net and 21 blocked shots through 21 contests this season. He'll likely cede his spot in the lineup to Gustav Lindstrom (undisclosed) once the latter is able to shake off his current injury.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Back in action

    Oesterle (coach's decision) returned to the lineup against the Blackhawks on Wednesday, according to

    After missing six straight games, Oesterle's return to the lineup was necessitated by an undisclosed issue for rookie defenseman Gustav Lindstrom. Oesterle played for Chicago in 2017-18, when he posted five goals and 10 assists through 55 games, but he's a spare for the Wings and therefore doesn't possess any fantasy value.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Produces helper Sunday

    Oesterle logged an assist in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Ducks.

    The assist snapped Oesterle's nine-game point drought. The 29-year-old had been a healthy scratch in the last two games, but he entered the lineup for Danny DeKeyser in the second half of the Red Wings' back-to-back. Oesterle is up to three helpers, 28 shots on net, 18 blocked shots and a minus-2 rating in 19 appearances overall.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Clears COVID-19 protocols

    Oesterle (COVID-19 protocols) is out of the league's protocols, the Wings announced Thursday.

    Considering Oesterle has just two points in 16 appearances for Detroit this season, his return to the lineup is unlikely to impact the majority of fantasy players. The 29-year-old Michigan native will likely have to watch from the press box from time to time as a healthy scratch.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Lands in COVID-19 protocols

    Oesterle was designated for COVID-19 protocols Tuesday.

    If Oesterle is sidelined beyond the Christmas break and is unavailable versus the Rangers on Monday, it's unlikely to impact the majority of fantasy players considering he has managed just two points in 16 appearances. Even when healthy, the blueliner figures to periodically serve as a healthy scratch behind Gustav Lindstrom and Marc Staal.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Adjusting to new role in Motown

    Oesterle currently operates on the top defensive pairing for the Red Wings, but just two assists make up his point total through 13 games this season.

    Oesterle is a decent offensive contributor, as illustrated by his 20-point, 71-game campaign with the Coyotes in 2018-19. However, the Red Wings are utilizing him more as a stay-at-home defender and penalty-killing specialist. Just over 41 percent of his 5-on-5 shifts have taken place in the offensive zone, which is a career low, and Oesterle's averaging 1:16 of ice time shorthanded. This isn't the type of profile that translates to success in the fantasy realm.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Nabs assist Wednesday

    Oesterle produced an assist and two shots on goal in Wednesday's 4-3 shootout win over the Kraken.

    Oesterle set up a Vladislav Namestnikov goal in the second period. Wednesday was Oesterle's sixth straight appearance -- he's seen more playing time as the Red Wings have weathered absences from Troy Stecher (wrist) and Danny DeKeyser (COVID-19 protocols). With just two assists, 12 shots on net, eight blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in nine games overall, Oesterle isn't making a strong case for additional playing time once the Red Wings' blue line is back to full health.

  • Red Wings' Jordan Oesterle: Lands with Detroit

    Oesterle signed a two-year, $2.7 million contract with the Red Wings on Wednesday.

    Oesterle appeared in 43 games with Arizona last season, picking up 11 points, 38 shots, 45 hits and 64 blocks while averaging 17:54 of ice time per contest. The 29-year-old blueliner will likely have a similar role with Detroit in 2021-22, so he may struggle to crack the 20-point mark.

  • Coyotes' Jordan Oesterle: Recent healthy scratch

    Oesterle has been a healthy scratch in the Coyotes' last five games.

    The 28-year-old defenseman put together a solid start to the year, but he's gone 16 games without a point. Oesterle has been replaced by Jason Demers in the lineup. Oesterle has 11 points, 61 blocked shots, 43 hits, 31 shots on net and a minus-5 rating in 39 contests, but it'll likely take injuries on the blue line for him to get back in the lineup.

  • Coyotes' Jordan Oesterle: Sends assist in loss

    Oesterle recorded an assist and added four shots on goal in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Wild.

    Oesterle has picked up three helpers in the last three games. The 28-year-old blueliner has 11 points, 21 shots on net, 39 blocked shots and 29 hits in 23 appearances this season. He's been surprisingly effective from the blue line, which could make Oesterle useful to fantasy managers in deeper formats.

  • Coyotes' Jordan Oesterle: Generates power-play assist

    Oesterle notched a power-play assist, two hits and a pair of blocked shots in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Kings.

    Oesterle set up Clayton Keller to open the scoring at 9:26 of the second period. Through 22 appearances, Oesterle has defied expectations offensively, as he's already up to 10 points. His career high is 20 points in 71 outings in 2018-19, but he's got a decent chance to match that this year. He's added 39 blocked shots, 29 hits, 17 shots on net and a plus-2 rating.
