Top Michael Rasmussen News

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Two-point afternoon

    Rasmussen scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Saturday's 6-1 win over the Blues.

    The 24-year-old snapped a five-game point drought with his first multi-point performance since Jan. 17. Rasmussen remains on pace for modest career highs this season, delivering 12 goals and 25 points through 57 contests, but his fantasy value is still limited in most formats.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Inks four-year contract

    Rasmussen signed a four-year, $12.8 million contract extension with Detroit on Tuesday.

    Rasmussen is in the final season of a three-year, $4.38 million deal. The 24-year-old forward has 11 goals, 23 points and 74 shots on net through 55 games this season.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Sneaks in helper against Vegas

    Rasmussen managed an assist in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Golden Knights.

    Rasmussen continues to trend toward a career-best season based on 10 goals, 12 assists and a plus-13 rating. The fifth-year power forward isn't a factor on the man advantage, but he's snuck in a shorthanded goal and three shorthanded assists, which can largely be attributed to his career high in defensive zone start percentage (62.5).

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Two points in OT win

    Rasmussen scored a goal and added an assist in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Panthers.

    The 24-year-old got the Red Wings on the board in the second period by tipping home an Olli Maatta point shot, and Rasmussen then set up Robby Fabbri for the tying tally early in the third. It's the first multi-point performance in over a month for Rasmussen, but he's been a steady contributor the last few weeks with three goals and six points in the last nine games. Wednesday's goal was his 10th of the season, marking the third straight campaign in which he's reached double digits.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Gathers assist

    Rasmussen notched an assist, two shots on goal, seven hits and three blocked shots in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Maple Leafs.

    Rasmussen has chipped in with four points over his last eight contests. The 24-year-old forward is seeing steady time on the third line and rarely gets on the ice with a man advantage. For the season, he has 18 points, 59 shots on net, 49 hits, 48 blocked shots, 27 PIM and a plus-10 rating through 43 appearances.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Scores game-winner late

    Rasmussen scored a goal in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Ducks.

    Rasmussen had a puck bounce in off his skate for the game-winning goal with 1:07 left in the third period. This was Rasmussen's second goal in three games after he scored an empty-netter in San Jose on Tuesday. The 24-year-old is up to nine goals, 17 points, 57 shots on net, 41 hits, 44 blocked shots and a plus-7 rating through 40 contests. He remains in a third-line role with little power-play time, so his fantasy value is limited to deep formats.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Deposits empty-netter

    Rasmussen scored an empty-net goal on two shots, blocked three shots and went minus-2 in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Sharks.

    Rasmussen gave the Red Wings some breathing room in the final minute of the game. He has two points over his last three outings following a six-game point drought. Rasmussen has held down a middle-six role for much of the campaign, earning eight goals, 16 points, 56 shots on net, 43 blocked shots, 39 hits, 25 PIM and a plus-7 rating over 38 appearances. His solid all-around production could give him some appeal in deeper fantasy formats.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Two points in St. Louis

    Rasmussen produced a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 6-4 win over the Blues.

    He set up Moritz Seider for a tally in the second period before scoring an empty-netter in the third to wrap things up. Rasmussen has three multi-point performances in the last five games, but that surge follows a 10-game goal drought in which he had only three helpers. On the season, the 2017 first-round pick has six goals and 13 points in 28 contests.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Three-game, five-point streak

    Rasmussen scored twice Thursday in a 6-5 overtime loss to the Sharks.

    Both were tip-ins. Rasmussen got his stick on a Daniel Sprong shot at 12:51 of the second, and he did it again 13 seconds later on a Ben Chiarot shot. The two goals were part of a three-goal flurry in 49 seconds that forced Mackenzie Blackwood from the net. Rasmussen has put together a three-game, five-point streak that includes three goals. The big pivot may never live up to his ninth overall draft billing, but he may become a steady, complementary fantasy scorer if he can keep this up.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Two-point effort in win

    Rasmussen scored the game-winning goal on three shots while adding an assist, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Sabres.

    Rasumussen's second-period tally didn't seem as though it would be crucial when he rocketed into the Sabres' zone and went five-hole on Eric Comrie to give Detroit a 4-0 lead, but Buffalo made things interesting after that. It's the first multi-point performance of the season for Rasmussen, and despite the skill displayed now and then by the ninth overall pick in the 2017 NHL Draft, he has just three goals and nine points through 24 contests.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Delivers shorthanded apple

    Rasmussen tallied a shorthanded assist in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over the Canadiens.

    Rasmussen nearly had a shorthanded goal after he intercepted the puck and stormed toward the cage in the first period, but it went down as an assist after his teammate, Christian Fischer, cleaned up the play with a backhand sweep. Early results show that Rasmussen has been a laggard offensively for a Red Wings team that leads the Atlantic Division with 86 total goals. He's produced two goals, five assists and a plus-6 rating through 23 games. Of course, Detroit retooled approximately half of its roster in the offseason, so Rasmussen might just need some extra time to see where he fits in.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Adds helper in win

    Rasmussen recorded an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Penguins.

    Rasmussen helped out on the first of Andrew Copp's two goals in the game. After a slow start, Rasmussen has a goal and an assist over his last two games, accounting for all of his offense through four contests. The 24-year-old forward has added five hits, seven blocked shots, six shots on goal and a plus-1 rating while playing on the second line with Copp and J.T. Compher.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Scores Monday

    Rasmussen scored a goal on his lone shot in Monday's 4-0 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Rasmussen extended Detroit's lead to 2-0 in the second period, following up a blocked shot before sneaking a wrister past Spencer Martin. It's the first point of the season for the 24-year-old Rasmussen after he tallied 10 goals and a career-high 29 points last year. He's opened the 2023-24 campaign on the second line alongside Andrew Copp and J.T. Compher.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Removed from IR

    Rasmussen (knee) was activated from injured reserve Monday, according to CapFriendly.

    Rasmussen, who sat out the final 24 games of the 2022-23 season because of a knee injury, is expected to available for the start of training camp. In 56 appearances last campaign, he posted 10 goals, 29 points, 88 shots on net and 119 hits. Rasmussen will probably occupy a middle-six spot in 2023-24.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Sets bar higher in shortened season

    Rasmussen was unable to return from a knee injury, having to settle for 10 goals, 19 assists, 48 blocked shots and 119 hits through 56 games of his fourth NHL season.

    Rasmussen still achieved a career high in points in his injury-shortened season, though the Wings seemed to lack a physical edge, especially when the 6-foot-6, 210-pound forward was out of commission. Ansar Khan of MLive.com relayed from GM Steve Yzerman that Detroit will focus on becoming more "physical and competitive" next season, but Yzerman doesn't feel the need to add an enforcer to the group. It's safe to say the team will continue monitoring Rasmussen's injury in the offseason, but barring a setback, he doesn't seem to be in danger of missing training camp despite finishing the 2022-23 campaign on injured reserve.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Likely done for season

    Rasmussen (knee) is likely out for the season according to coach Derek Lalonde, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. Per CapFriendly, Rasmussen was also placed on injured reserve Thursday.

    Rasmussen blocked a shot off his kneecap Saturday versus the Lightning. He has 10 goals and 19 assists in 56 games this season. Even if he's unable to return in 2022-23, he should be fine for the start of training camp in September.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Out indefinitely

    Rasmussen (lower body) will be out indefinitely after getting injured in Saturday's 3-0 loss to Tampa Bay.

    Coach Derek Lalonde expects to know more about Rasmussen's timeline in the next couple of days. The 23-year-old forward has compiled 10 goals, 29 points, 88 shots on net and 119 hits in 56 games this season.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Suffers lower-body injury Saturday

    Rasmussen suffered a lower-body injury during Saturday's game against Tampa Bay and won't return to the contest.

He sustained the injury when he was struck in his leg or knee by a shot from the Lightning's Zack Bogosian, according to Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com. Rasmussen logged just 2:13 of ice time before exiting the contest.

    Rasmussen logged a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Rangers.

    Rasmussen set up Andrew Copp's opening goal in the first period before extending Detroit's lead to 3-1 with a goal late in the second. The 23-year-old Rasmussen ended a four-game pointless skid with his multi-point effort Thursday. He's up to 29 points this season, a new career high, with 10 goals and 19 assists.
