  • Red Wings' Joe Veleno: NHL opportunity looms

    Veleno's NHL debut is imminent and he figures to play extensively for the Red Wings, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

    The Wings took Veleno 30th overall in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft, and he's since worked on bulking up and improving his 200-foot game. Veleno has spent the bulk of the 2020-21 campaign with the Malmo Redhawks in the Swedish Hockey League, adding 11 goals and nine assists over 46 games. Two years remain on Veleno's entry-level contract, but with the Original Six club having no chance of reaching the playoffs, it only makes sense to give him a long look down the stretch.

    Veleno spent the entirety of the 2019-20 season in the minors, picking up 11 goals and 23 points in 54 games with AHL Grand Rapids.

  • Red Wings' Joe Veleno: Gets vote of confidence

    Veleno only has 22 points (11 goals, 11 assists) through 51 games for AHL Grand Rapids, but Red Wings GM Steve Yzerman clearly understands his potential. "Joe Veleno has had a real good year," Yzerman said in a report by Ansar Khan of MLive.com. "His numbers aren't great, but he's played in all situations. I think the coaching staff there has done a really good job being patient with him, allowing him to play a significant role. I think he's really thrived."

    Expectations for Veleno were through the roof after he amassed 42 goals and 62 assists in 59 games as a member of the Drummondville Voltigeurs of the QMJHL last season. Of course, this is his first year in the professional ranks, so it would behoove fantasy owners in keeper leagues to be patient with the 20-year-old prospect.

  • Red Wings' Joe Veleno: Suspended one WJC game

    Veleno was suspended for one World Junior Classic game on Sunday.

  • Red Wings' Joe Veleno: Struggling in first AHL season

    Veleno scored his third goal of the season in AHL Grand Rapids' 4-2 win over Cleveland on Tuesday.

    While Veleno's numbers for the season -- three goals, four points in 15 games -- are thoroughly underwhelming, he does have four points in his last nine contests following a six-game dry spell to begin the season. The fact Veleno is sporting a minus-14 rating for a team whose record is above .500 (7-6-1-1) is more concerning than his lack of offensive production. Veleno, at age 19, is one of the youngest players in the league. While these things can change, the Red Wings are believed to be leaning towards releasing Veleno to play for Team Canada at the World Juniors this upcoming holiday season. He would return to Grand Rapids when the tournament is over.

  • Red Wings' Joe Veleno: Mired in funk

    Veleno, a notable prospect, is struggling with AHL Grand Rapids having recorded just one point (a goal) and a minus-8 rating through the first eight games.

    Peter J. Wallner of MLive.com caught up with Veleno on Friday, after the 2018 first-round (30th overall) draft pick snapped a seven-game pointless drought with a power-play tally in a 4-1 win over Manitoba. "It was a little frustrating," Veleno said. "There was really nothing happening offensively. It's a tough league to put up good numbers so I was lucky enough to capitalize on that one and it's a big relief for sure." The Red Wings have been struggling as well, with the team sitting second to last in the Atlantic Division standings, but it doesn't appear that Veleno will be promoted anytime soon based on his brutal stretch at the lower level.

  • Red Wings' Joe Veleno: Standing out among prospects

    Veleno has scored four times through the first two games of the NHL Prospect Tournament in Traverse City, Michigan, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

    Detroit's first-round (30th overall) selection in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft, Veleno is off to a blazing start to the tournament. He managed to strike twice on back-to-back days while already accounting for three power-play tallies. The Wings figure to be patient with the 19-year-old phenom, but here's a kid who notched 104 points (42 goals, 62 assists) in 59 games with QMJHL Drummondville last season -- his fifth year of junior hockey. Keep an eye on him for dynasty purposes.
