Top Jake Walman News

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Nets winner in OT

    Walman had a goal and an assist in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over Montreal.

    He scored 54 seconds into overtime when he sent a snap shot past Jake Allen's glove. Walman has four points (one goal, three assists) in his last two games, and five points in his past four appearances. He's warming up right now and may be a decent scoop off the waiver wire if you need short-term help.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Pockets two helpers Thursday

    Walman recorded two assists, one shorthanded, in Thursday's 5-1 win over Chicago.

    Both points came in the first period as Detroit grabbed an early lead and never looked back. Walman's last multi-point performance came in the final game of October, but he's provided steady all-around production off the Wings' blue line this season that includes 59 blocked shots -- tied for seventh in the NHL.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Questionable for Sunday

    Walman (illness) is considered questionable for Sunday's tilt versus Minnesota.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Delivers power-play helper

    Walman supplied a power-play assist to complement five blocked shots in Wednesday's 4-0 win over the Devils.

    Walman is set up for success as a top-pairing defenseman averaging 20:30 of ice time, including 1:58 on the power play and 2:41 shorthanded. He's not nearly as potent offensively as his defensive partner Moritz Seider, but efficiency is the name of the game for Walman, who boasts a plus-7 rating to complement four goals, four assists and 49 blocked shots through 18 contests. Best of all? Half of his points have been contributed on the power play.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Not playing Friday

    Walman will miss Friday's tilt against Boston with an illness.

    Walman should be considered day-to-day at this time. He has four goals and eight points in 18 games this season.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Set to return Wednesday

    Walman (undisclosed) is expected back in the lineup versus New Jersey on Wednesday, Sean Shapiro of EP Rinkside reports.

    Walman will avoid missing any game action after being injured while playing in Sweden against Toronto. The blueliner has just one point in his last five contests despite averaging 2:51 of ice time with the man advantage. Even with the recent slump, Walman should challenge for the 20-point threshold for the first time in his NHL career.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Questionable for practice Tuesday

    Walman (undisclosed) is questionable for practice Tuesday but might still play against New Jersey on Wednesday, Ansar Khan of reports.

    Walman logged 12:29 of ice time in Friday's clash with the Maple Leafs before being forced to exit the game with his undisclosed injury. In 17 games this season, the blueliner has notched four goals and three assists, including three power-play points. If Walman misses any time, Jeff Petry figures to rejoin the lineup after serving as a healthy scratch versus Toronto.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Sustains undisclosed injury

    Walman suffered an undisclosed injury during Friday's game against Toronto and won't return.

    Walman sustained the injury when he crashed into the net during the second period, according to Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press. Going into Friday's action, the 27-year-old defenseman had four goals, seven points, 18 PIM, four hits and 43 blocks in 16 appearances this season. If he can't play Wednesday versus New Jersey, then Jeff Petry will likely draw back into the lineup after being scratched Friday.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Pots fluky game-winner Saturday

    Walman scored the game-winning goal on two shots on net and added four blocked shots in Saturday's 5-4 victory over the Blue Jackets.

    With Detroit ahead 4-3 early in the third period, Walman fired a point shot that caromed off a Columbus defender, hit the end boards, then bounced off the back of goalie Spencer Martin's leg and into the net. While the 27-year-old blueliner won't be able to repeat that billiards shot any time soon, Walman's been productive of late with three goals and four points over the last six games. However, his fantasy value could be on shaky ground -- he didn't see a second of ice time on the power play Saturday, with Shayne Gostisbehere, Jeff Petry and Moritz Seider splitting those duties instead.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Helps Red Wings in comeback win

    Walman contributed a goal and an assist in a 4-3 overtime win over Detroit on Monday.

    With Detroit down 2-0, Walman assisted on Daniel Sprong's marker at 7:55 of the third period and then provided his own goal just 100 seconds later to tie the game. It was the first multi-point game of Walman's career. The 27-year-old defenseman has two goals and five points in 10 outings this year. That's a solid start to the campaign, but he probably won't maintain that offensive pace. Walman's career high in points is 18, set in 2022-23.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Nets goal Sunday

    Walman scored a goal and blocked two shots in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Flames.

    Walman tallied early in the third period to squash the Flames' comeback hopes. While primarily a defensive presence, Walman has also picked up three points through six contests this season. He's added multiple blocked shots in each game, totaling 17 blocks with eight PIM, eight shots on goal and a plus-1 rating. Walman is locked into a top-four role.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Racking up blocks

    Walman has been credited with a team-high eight blocked shots through two games this season.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Set for training camp

    Walman (upper body) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp, per Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press.

    Walman was unable to take part in the 2023 IIHF World Championship because of an upper-body issue. He produced nine goals, 18 points, 140 shots on net and 121 blocked shots in 63 games last season. Walman is projected to be back alongside Moritz Seider on Detroit's top defense pairing during the 2023-24 campaign.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Dealing with upper-body issue

    Walman (upper body) will not participate in the World Championship.

    Walman set new career bests with nine goals, 18 points and 140 shots through 63 games this season. The 27-year-old was expected to represent Team Canada this offseason but now he'll use that time to heal before the 2023-24 campaign. An update on his status may not be available until closer to training camp.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Nice fit in Motown

    Walman posted 18 points, 47 hits, 121 blocked shots and a plus-10 rating through 63 games this season.

    A shoulder injury caused Walman to get off to a late start to the campaign, but he made quite the impression for the Wings upon returning, as the aforementioned totals were all career-best marks. The Blues' castoff had played sparingly in St. Louis to start his career, though he leveled up with his new team, managing a whopping 140 shots on goal and lighting the lamp nine times to complement the same number of helpers. He inked a three-year, $10.2 million deal in February as a major boon to his confidence. From a fantasy perspective, there's a chance he'll be on the radar in deep leagues this fall.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Provides game-winning goal

    Walman found the back of the net in a 3-2 victory over Carolina on Thursday.

    Walman supplied the deciding goal with just four seconds left in the third period. It was the 27-year-old's second career game-winner. Through 55 appearances in 2022-23, Walman has nine goals and 15 points. March has been a decent month offensively by his standards, with four goals and five points over 14 outings.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Lends helper in loss

    Walman posted an assist in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Panthers.

    Walman has stepped up as a top-pairing defenseman following the trade of Filip Hronek to the Canucks, and now he's up to seven goals, six assists and a plus-15 rating through 50 games. Those counting stats won't move the needle much in fantasy leagues, but Walman has surpassed expectations in Motown, with the reward being a three-year, $10.2 million extension that he inked in February.
