  • Red Wings' Jakub Vrana: Ends season on high note

    Vrana recorded a primary assist in the season finale Friday, helping the Red Wings to a 5-3 win over the Devils.

    Vrana finished the season with 13 goals and six assists through 26 games and 14:56 of average ice time. The Wings carefully managed his workload following a significant shoulder injury, but he looked good during the final stretch of the season playing alongside Pius Suter and veteran Sam Gagner. According to Helene St. James of The Detroit Free Press, the Wings are moving on from head coach Jeff Blashill and a pair of assistant coaches, although this shouldn't have a negative impact on Vrana's role for next season.

  • Red Wings' Jakub Vrana: Converts power-play shot

    Vrana registered a power-play goal in Saturday's 7-2 loss to the Penguins.

    Vrana was left all alone for a one-timer from the slot, converting his 13th goal through 23 games. The Czech winger's been shooting with pinpoint accuracy, as 21.6 percent of his shots have brushed twine. A shoulder injury prevented Vrana from playing until March 8, though he's looked rather spry as the 2021-22 campaign comes to a close.

  • Red Wings' Jakub Vrana: Two tallies including game-winner

    Vrana scored two goals -- including the game-winner -- in Tuesday's 4-3 victory over the Lightning.

    He gave the Red Wings a 2-1 lead early in the second period, then potted the final tally of the night early in the third. Vrana has found a groove over the last few weeks, scoring seven goals and 11 points over the last 12 games after missing most of the season due to a shoulder injury suffered in training camp.

  • Red Wings' Jakub Vrana: Another two-goal outing

    Vrana scored two goals on six shots in Saturday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.

    Vrana got the Red Wings on the board in the second period, then he and Dylan Larkin scored 58 seconds apart in the third to erase a 4-2 deficit and get the game to overtime. This was Vrana's third two-goal game in just 16 appearances this season, and he's potted 10 goals since finishing his lengthy recovery from a shoulder injury.

  • Red Wings' Jakub Vrana: Two points in Sunday's loss

    Vrana scored an even-strength goal and added a power-play assist in Sunday's 11-2 loss to the Penguins.

    Both points came in the second period as the Red Wings finally showed a bit of fight. Unfortunately, the score was already 6-0 at that point. Vrana has looked good since returning to action from a shoulder injury that cost him most of the season, scoring six goals and eight points over the last 10 games, and he's been rewarded with a spot on Detroit's top power-play unit in recent contests.

  • Red Wings' Jakub Vrana: Another two-goal night

    Vrana scored two goals in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Flyers.

    Vrana put Detroit up 2-0 in the first and 4-2 in the second with his fourth and fifth goals of the season. The Czech winger's still searching for his first assist of the season, but he's hit the ground running since returning from a shoulder injury with five goals in seven games. Vrana's a name to keep an eye on, both for the remainder of this season and next year.

  • Red Wings' Jakub Vrana: Two goals in loss

    Vrana scored twice in a 6-5 shootout loss to the Wild on Thursday.

    He's still working his way into game shape, but Vrana's shot is already sharp. He has three in two games since returning from shoulder surgery. Check your wire to see if he's somehow still sitting there.

  • Red Wings' Jakub Vrana: Lights lamp in season debut

    Vrana (shoulder) scored a power-play goal in Tuesday's 9-2 loss to Arizona.

    Vrana lighting the lamp in his season debut was perhaps the only silver lining in an otherwise ugly performance from the Red Wings. The Czech winger has completed his recovery from a major shoulder injury and wasn't afraid to throw his body around, complementing his goal with three shots and four hits over 15:44 of ice time.

  • Red Wings' Jakub Vrana: Possibly returning Tuesday

    Vrana (shoulder) could return for Tuesday's game against Arizona, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports Monday.

    Vrana has yet to appear in an NHL contest in 2021-22 due to a shoulder injury. The 26-year-old has been a full participant in practice since late February. In 2020-21, he registered 18 goals and 17 assists over 50 games.

  • Red Wings' Jakub Vrana: Returns to action

    Vrana (shoulder) will participate in Tuesday's game against Arizona.

    Vrana will make his season debut Tuesday. The 26-year-old averaged 15:00 of ice time -- 2:15 during the power play -- and logged 36 points over 50 contests in 2020-21. He is slated to slot into a top-six role going forward.

  • Red Wings' Jakub Vrana: Shows progress by taking contact

    Vrana (shoulder) has been taking contact in practice, but there remains no timetable for his return, Ansar Khan of reports.

    According to this report, Vrana has been getting work on the No. 2 power-play unit and taking contact. This development suggests that he has a chance to return soon, but Wings coach Jeff Blashill evidently doesn't know exactly when the talented winger will suit up for game action. Acquired from Washington last season in the Anthony Mantha trade, Vrana produced 36 points (19 goals, 17 assists) between the two clubs in 2020-21. Detroit is fortunate that rookie Lucas Raymond -- with 13 goals and 26 assists through 52 games -- has done such a great job filling the void created by Vrana's absence.

  • Red Wings' Jakub Vrana: Practices with non-contact sweater

    Vrana (shoulder) practiced in a non-contact jersey Thursday, but he is not close to a return, Ansar Khan of reports.

    The Wings hope that Vrana will be ready for contact in mid-February. Acquired from Washington in last season's trade deadline deal for Anthony Mantha, Vrana made an immediate splash with Detroit, as he generated eight goals (including three game-winners) and three assists over 11 games. While Vrana's return to practice is a step in the right direction, you'd have to be in a fairly deep league to justify stashing him at this juncture.

  • Red Wings' Jakub Vrana: Targeting February return

    The Red Wings hope to get Vrana (shoulder) in the lineup at some point next month, Ansar Khan of reports.

    The Wings acquired Vrana in the Anthony Mantha trade at the deadline last year, and he made an immediate impact based on 11 goals, 14 assists and a plus-9 rating through 39 games. Vrana, who required shoulder surgery, reportedly has resumed travel with the Wings and he's been skating, albeit without an exact timeline for his return. "It's not anything that's going to happen in the next couple of weeks," head coach Jeff Blashill said. "He's been skating for a while. It's nice to have him on the trip and keep him as part of the team a little more, but ultimately it's still got to take the time it's going to take to heal, and the surgeon will be the deciding factor in that."

  • Red Wings' Jakub Vrana: Placed on IR

    Vrana (shoulder) was shifted to injured reserve Monday.

    Vrana was already expected to be out until sometime in 2022 after undergoing shoulder surgery so this is simply a paper move by Detroit. The 25-year-old racked up 11 points in as many games after being traded to the Red Wings last season. Once he's healthy, Vrana will slide right back into the top six.

  • Red Wings' Jakub Vrana: Headed for surgery

    Vrana will undergo shoulder surgery that will sideline him for at least four months, the team announced Thursday.

    Based on the club's timeline, Vrana will be shelved until at least February due to his shoulder surgery. As such, the winger will no doubt be placed on long-term injured reserve to start the year in order to provide the Wings with some cap relief from his newly minted three-year, $15.75 million contract. While the 25-year-old winger has reached the 20-goal mark in two of the last three seasons, the length of his expected layoff should see him left off the board in re-draft formats and only stashed in deeper dynasty leagues.

  • Red Wings' Jakub Vrana: Seeing specialist Monday

    Vrana is seeing a specialist Monday for further evaluation on his injured shoulder, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Vrana suffered the injury Saturday and didn't take the ice for Sunday's training camp activities. Likely slated for duty on the top line and No. 1 power play, Vrana missing any significant time this season would be a significant blow to an already thin Detroit forward corps.

  • Red Wings' Jakub Vrana: Hurts shoulder Saturday

    Vrana injured his shoulder in practice Saturday, Kevin Allen of Detroit Hockey Now reports.

    Vrana's having a rough first training camp with Detroit. He finally hit the ice for the first time Saturday after sorting out his visa issues, only to get injured within the first 10 minutes of practice. The team should have an update on the severity of the injury in the coming days after reevaluating Vrana.

  • Red Wings' Jakub Vrana: Finalizing visa issue

    Vrana will miss the start of training camp due to an immigration issue, Tom Gulitti of reports.

    General manager Steve Yzerman didn't seem too concerned that Vrana's visa issue would linger into the start of the season, especially considering the team's first preseason game isn't until Sept. 29 against Chicago. Vrana racked up 11 points in 11 games for the Wings last season and figures to continue filling a top-six role with Detroit, including logging time with the No. 1 power-play unit. As such, the 25-year-old Czech could push for the 40-50 point mark.

  • Red Wings' Jakub Vrana: Agrees to terms with Detroit

    Vrana agreed to terms on a three-year, $15.75 million contract with the Red Wings on Tuesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Vrana spent most of the 2020-21 campaign with the Capitals, racking up 11 goals and 25 points through 39 games before being traded to Detroit at the deadline, where he finished strong with eight goals and 11 points through the last 11 contests of the season. It wouldn't be wise for fantasy managers to expect Vrana to maintain a point-per-game pace with the Red Wings in 2021-22, but the 25-year-old winger is certainly capable of putting up 30-plus goals and 60-plus points over the course of a full campaign, making him an attractive fantasy option.
