  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Centering Vrana, Perron

    With Andrew Copp recovering from abdominal surgery, Rasmussen has been centering a line of Jakub Vrana and David Perron, reports Max Bultman of The Athletic. That's a great opportunity for Rasmussen. He had 15 goals and 27 points in 80 games last season, but he made strides toward the end of the campaign with seven goals in his final 16 contests. It remains to be seen how Rasmussen will be used long term though. Detroit coach Derek Lalonde would like to deploy Rasmussen as a center, but once Copp is healthy he might take over the center spot between Vrana and Perron. If that's the case, Rasmussen would then either drop in the depth chart or shift to the wing. Still, as long as Copp is unavailable, Rasmussen has a chance to prove he's a good fit for that line.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Strong finish to campaign

    Rasmussen produced a goal and an assist in Friday's season-ending 5-3 win over New Jersey. Rasmussen opened the scoring with his 15th goal of the season in the first and assisted on Moritz Seider's second-period tally. Though Rasmussen's season total of 27 points in 80 games is unimpressive, the 6-foot-6 forward showed some promise down the stretch with goals in three of his last four games.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Lights lamp in shutout victory

    Rasmussen scored an empty-net goal in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Devils. The Devils had trouble advancing the puck past center ice due to some stingy defense from Adam Erne, who jarred the puck right in the path of Rasmussen for a chip shot into the empty cage. Rasmussen has drawn praise from team brass for his competitiveness down the stretch, but either way, the Wings have him on the books for two more seasons and $1.46 million AAV, and that's not exactly a big investment for a player taken ninth overall in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Revisits scoresheet against Pens

    Rasmussen collected a goal and four hits in Saturday's 7-2 loss to the Penguins. Rasmussen broke out offensively with four goals in five games from the end of March through April 6, though he followed it up with a seven-game pointless skid before getting back on the horse against the Pens. There is plenty of untapped potential with Rasmussen -- whom the Wings drafted ninth overall in 2017 -- but he'll need to discover ways to be more consistent in the attacking zone.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Looking to shake off illness

    Rasmussen is dealing with an illness but still expected to suit up versus the Lightning on Saturday, Ansar Khan of reports. There is a lack of specific information regarding Rasmussen's illness, but it caused him to miss practice Friday. More details should surface closer to puck drop concerning the bottom-six center's status; he has recorded eight goals and 11 assists through 62 games.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Lights lamp in high-scoring game

    Rasmussen found the back of the net in Saturday's 10-7 loss to the Maple Leafs. Rasmussen deflected a Moritz Seider shot for his seventh goal of the season. Amazingly, this tally was one of eight that took place in the third period. Still, the 22-year-old is averaging only 14:40 of ice time, which limits his fantasy prospects at this juncture.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Provides dagger for Wings

    Rasmussen scored on his only shot in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Flyers. This was an empty-net tally for Rasmussen that was more difficult than it had to be since Flyers defenseman Keith Yandle tossed his stick in the forward's path. Nonetheless, Rasmussen managed his sixth goal and 16th point of the season, and the Wings swept the two-game series against a Flyers team that has been a particularly tough opponent for them.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Brushes twine in loss

    Rasmussen opened the scoring for the Red Wings in their 5-3 loss to the Kings on Wednesday. Rasmussen tracked down the puck on a rebound and potted his fifth goal of the season. The third-line pivot has struggled defensively -- that minus-18 rating is an eyesore -- but he shouldn't have trouble reaching new career highs in the attacking zone by season's end.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Feisty in shutout win

    Rasmussen scored on a breakaway to cap off a 4-0 win over the Sabres on Saturday. Rasmussen was a handful for the visitors; in addition to his goal, the burly pivot committed two tripping penalties and was also whistled for roughing, only for the Sabres to get shut down on the corresponding power-play opportunities. Rasmussen has four goals and nine assists through 37 games this season, which is not enough to move the needle in fantasy leagues, but he'll draw more attention if he continues to play aggressively and takes advantage of that 6-foot-6, 210-pound frame.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Garners helper Sunday

    Rasmussen notched an assist, two shots on goal, three hits, two blocked shots and two PIM in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Ducks. Rasmussen logged the secondary assist on Vladislav Namestnikov's third-period tally. It was Rasmussen's second helper in his last three games. The 22-year-old forward is up to 12 points in 34 contests, matching his output from 40 appearances last season. He's added 56 shots on net, 43 hits, 32 blocked shots, 22 PIM and a minus-11 rating in 2021-22, playing mainly in a middle-six role.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Not in COVID-19 protocols anymore

    Rasmussen has exited the COVID-19 protocols, according to Ansar Khan of Rasmussen was placed in the protocols Dec. 15 and completed the 10-day quarantine before being able to return. While it remains to be seen if he'll be available for Wednesday's matchup against the Islanders, Rasmussen's return shouldn't make a big impact across most fantasy formats. He only has three goals and 10 points across 29 games in 2021-22.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Lands in COVID-19 protocols

    Rasmussen, along with Robby Fabbri, was placed in the league's COVID-19 protocols Wednesday. With Rasmussen and Fabbri unavailable, the Wings will likely have to recall a player from the minors or utilize seven defensemen versus the Hurricanes on Thursday. In his last five contests, Rasmussen was having one of his most productive stretches of the season with two goals, one assist and 11 shots over that stretch.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Lifts Wings to victory

    Rasmussen secured the game-winning goal against the Islanders in Tuesday's 2-1 home clash. Rasmussen was aggressive and determined in the low-scoring affair, and the hard work paid off as the third-line pivot managed to get one of his five shots to fall. Drafted ninth overall in 2017, Rasmussen remains a steady option for an Original Six club hoping to return to the playoff stage after a short rebuild. In addition to his three goals and seven assists, Rasmussen has compiled 27 blocked shots and 34 hits as a sign that he's committed on both ends of the ice.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Earns helper with faceoff win

    Rasmussen notched an assist and two PIM in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Islanders. Rasmussen won a faceoff back to Adam Erne, who set up Filip Hronek for the Red Wings' first goal. The 22-year-old Rasmussen didn't have a great game at the dot, going 5-for-15 on faceoffs. He's provided a little secondary scoring with eight points in 25 contests. The Canadian center has added 35 shots on net, 31 hits, 22 blocked shots, 20 PIM and a minus-4 rating while filling a third-line role.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Tickles twine

    Rasmussen scored a goal in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Blue Jackets. Rasmussen gave the Red Wings a 2-0 lead early in the second period. It was the 22-year-old's first goal of the campaign -- he's been more of a set-up man in a third-line role so far. The Canadian forward has collected seven points, 25 shots on net, 18 hits, 16 blocked shots and a plus-2 rating through 17 appearances.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Chips in with helper

    Rasmussen notched an assist and three shots on goal in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Blackhawks. Rasmussen set up Carter Rowney for the go-ahead goal at 4:22 of the second period, and the Red Wings didn't look back. The 22-year-old Rasmussen has been a solid depth forward with three helpers, 13 shots and nine blocked shots through six contests. He'll continue to work in a middle-six capacity, and a small uptick in offense combined with his solid defensive work so far could earn him interest in deeper fantasy formats.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Generates assist Thursday

    Rasmussen (undisclosed) notched an assist and three blocked shots in Thursday's 7-6 overtime loss to the Lightning. Rasmussen dealt with an injury at the end of the preseason, but he was fine to play in a third-line role Thursday. He helped out on Vladislav Namestnikov's third-period tally, but it wasn't enough for the Red Wings to win their season opener. Rasmussen is slated to play in a middle-six role to begin this season, and he had 12 points in 40 outings in 2020-21.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Set to return Thursday

    Rasmussen (undisclosed) is projected to center the third line Thursday versus the Lightning. Rasmussen missed the last two games of the Red Wings' preseason slate, but he appears ready to go for the season opener. The 22-year-old recorded 12 points in 40 games last season, and he shouldn't be expected to see much more than middle-six usage this year. He could also factor in on the second power-play unit after averaging 2:16 of ice time per game in that situation last season.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Considered day-to-day

    Rasmussen (undisclosed) is considered day-to-day, Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News reports. Rasmussen won't play in Wednesday's preseason game versus Columbus or Thursday's exhibition against the Penguins, but his day-to-day tag suggests he probably isn't in danger of missing Detroit's regular-season opener against Tampa Bay on Oct. 14. Rasmussen should continue to skate in a middle-six role while seeing regular power-play usage in 2021-22, but he only produced three goals and 12 points through 40 games in that role last season, so expectations for the 22-year-old forward should be tempered.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Signs three-year extension

    Rasmussen signed a three-year, $4.38 million contract extension with the Red Wings on Thursday. Rasmussen has drawn into 102 games with Detroit over the past three campaigns, picking up 11 goals, 30 points and 156 hits over that span. The ninth overall pick from the 2017 draft has plenty of upside, but it may be a few more seasons until his full offensive potential is realized at the NHL level.
