Red Wings' Joe Veleno: Tallies to close season
Veleno scored in Friday's season finale, a 5-3 win over the Devils.
This was Veleno's first point since March 22. The rookie had gone 18 straight games without a goal or an assist, and he was minus-8 over that span. Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill tested Veleno at various spots on the lineup, including a top-line role near the finish line, but Veleno was unable to build a meaningful offensive streak, finishing the year with eight goals and seven assists through 66 games. It may be too early to write him off, but the 30th overall pick from 2018 is getting long in the tooth as far as prospects are concerned.... See More ... See Less

The 22-year-old Veleno had picked up three assists in the eight games since he last scored. The young center has six tallies, 13 points, 47 shots on net, 66 hits, 20 PIM and a minus-6 rating in 46 outings.

Red Wings' Joe Veleno: Secures helper in loss
Veleno registered an assist in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Panthers.
Veleno drew a faceoff with Tyler Bertuzzi tracking down the loose puck and flinging it into the cage, but it wasn't nearly enough for the Wings as they were served a punishing loss on the road. With five goals and the same number of assists through 40 games, Veleno is developing into an offensive threat, though he's only 22 years old and bench boss Jeff Blashill still has the training wheels on the young pivot....

Red Wings' Joe Veleno: Earns two points in loss
Veleno recorded a goal and an assist in Saturday's 10-7 loss to the Maple Leafs.
Veleno has chronically shuffled between the AHL and NHL, and playing time on the big stage will be harder to come by for the 22-year-old once Jakub Vrana returns from his shoulder injury. However, Veleno is skilled offensively and known for his rigid work ethic, paving the way for additional opportunities should he continue to play like he did Saturday.... See More ... See Less

Veleno scored a goal in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Kings.
Veleno tallied at 19:13 of the third period after a Viktor Arvidsson empty-netter appeared to have put the game away for the Kings. The Red Wings couldn't get even, but Veleno was able to earn his second point in his last four games. The 22-year-old has struggled to generate much offense in a bottom-six role -- he's at four goals, two assists, 37 shots on net, 47 hits and a minus-6 rating through 31 appearances. Until he moves into the top six, he's unlikely to make much of an impact in fantasy.... See More ... See Less

Veleno saw power-play responsibilities in Monday's practice, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

Detroit continues to run a lackluster power play, as it ranks 30th in the league at 14.4 percent, and Veleno has the offensive skill set necessary to be an impact player on the man advantage should the assignment stick....
