  • Red Wings' Justin Abdelkader: Unlocks scoring milestone in season finale

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/7/18) Abdelkader scored off his skate on the power play for his 100th career goal in Saturday's 4-3 overtime home loss to the Islanders.

    Whatever works, right? Abdelkader's fortuitous tally was the 35th point of his 2017-18 campaign, for which he played 75 games. We're still scratching our heads on the seven-year, $29.75 million contract extension that the Michigan native procured in Nov. 2015, but it's clear that the Wings admire the hometown boy's physicality and knack for scoring the greasy goal. He closes out the hockey year with 13 goals, 22 helpers, 174 hits and 40 blocked shots; it probably won't cost you more than a late draft pick to get him next season.

    Red Wings' Justin Abdelkader: Etches name on scoresheet

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/4/18) Abdelkader was the only Red Wing to score in Sunday's 4-1 road loss to the Wild.

    Abdelkader blasted a rebound from a Jonathan Ericsson shot to brush twine for the 11th time this season. The former has a tendency to be a loose cannon, as he also skated to a minus-1 rating and committed two giveaways in this loss. All things considered, Abdelkader is best served as a depth forward in fantasy pools.

    Red Wings' Justin Abdelkader: Takes maintenance day

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/23/18) Abdelkader (undisclosed) simply took a maintenance day Friday, as he's expected to be in Saturday's lineup versus the Hurricanes, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

    Abdelkader, who missed the most recent practice, curiously didn't lay any hits on the Sabres for what culminated as a 3-2 overtime loss Thursday, but he should be fine moving forward.

    Red Wings' Justin Abdelkader: Misses practice

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/23/18) Abdelkader (undisclosed) did not practice Friday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

    The reason behind Abdelkader's absence was not immediately disclosed, but despite the fact that he notched a power-play goal in Thursday's game against the Sabres, he didn't record a single hit or blocked shot and that is cause for concern. Expect the do-it-all winger to be reevaluated ahead of Saturday's home game against the Hurricanes.

    Red Wings' Justin Abdelkader: Shows off mean streak in tough loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/21/18) Abdelkader contributed a secondary assist to complement seven hits in Tuesday's 3-2 home loss to the Predators.

    Seemingly willing to hit anything that moves, Abdelkader has accumulated 141 hits through 52 games this season, and he's only three away from last year's total in 12 fewer contests. Hockey pundits abound were scratching their heads when the Wings signed the Michigan native to seven years and $29.75 million annually in November of 2015, and it appears that, strong hitting aside, those concerns were valid. While Abdelkader does a little bit of everything for Detroit, he's far from a can't-miss fantasy commodity as the owner of 25 points (nine goals, 16 assists) through 52 games.
