  • Red Wings' Frans Nielsen: Bulges twine

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/20/19) Nielsen found twine in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Rangers.

    This was Nielsen's first goal in 14 games, with the drought lasting longer than a month. He's still deployed in all situations, though Detroit's inconsistent offense -- one that ranks near the bottom in goals per game, shots on goal and power-play percentage -- severely limits Nielsen's fantasy prospects.

    Red Wings' Frans Nielsen: Stripped of power-play role for now

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/23/19) Nielsen will be taken off the No. 2 power-play unit in favor of prospect Filip Zadina for Sunday's game against the Sharks, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    The Wings plan to plug Zadina -- the sixth overall draft pick from 2018 -- into a favorable role right out of the gate. But rest assured that Nielsen will still be counted on for around 17 minutes of ice time with a heavy emphasis on the penalty kill. Nielsen has nine goals, 22 assists and a minus-3 rating through 57 games, needing only two more points to match last season's output.

    Red Wings' Frans Nielsen: Assists on Wings' only goal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/17/19) Nielsen (illness) picked up an assist on the Wings' only goal Sunday in their 3-1 loss to the Flyers.

    Nielsen was really active in the game, nabbing three shots, blocking one from the Flyers and tallying three hits while turning in a plus-one effort.

    Red Wings' Frans Nielsen: Suiting up Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/17/19) Nielsen (illness) will rejoin the lineup Sunday against Philadelphia.

    Nielsen was held out Saturday due to his ailment. The 34-year-old has nine goals and 30 points this season and should jump back into his usual top-six role.

    Red Wings' Frans Nielsen: Won't play Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/16/19) Nielsen (illness) won't suit up against the Flyers in Philadelphia on Saturday, but Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill thinks the forward will be ready for Sunday's home clash with that same team.

    Nielsen secured the game-winning goal against the Senators on Thursday, counting as his second tally of 2019. Fortunately, it doesn't sound like his malady is too severe. He remains an important utility player for the Red Wings, but the Wings are expecting Tyler Bertuzzi (upper body) to take his place Saturday.
