Red Wings' Calvin Pickard: Assigned to Grand Rapids
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pickard was sent down to AHL Grand Rapids on Saturday.

Pickard returns to the minors, where he holds a 14-9-3 record across 26 appearances this season. He last appeared in a game for the Red Wings on Jan. 14, in relief of Jimmy Howard. Pickard allowed five goals on 19 shots in that one.

Red Wings' Calvin Pickard: Recalled Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pickard was recalled from AHL Grand Rapids under emergency conditions Sunday.

Pickard assumes the spot of recent callup Kaden Fulcher, who was sent to ECHL Toledo in a related move Sunday. It's likely that Pickard will assume backup duties for Friday's game against the Rangers with Jonathan Bernier (lower body) dealing with injury. Pickard has gone 0-2-0 along with a 5.45 GAA and .797 save percentage in three appearances at the NHL level this season.

Red Wings' Calvin Pickard: Sent to AHL affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Detroit assigned Pickard to AHL Grand Rapids on Thursday.

The Red Wings are off until Jan. 31 against the Rangers, so Pickard will head to the minors to continue playing during the All-Star break. He'll be back with the big club following the NHL's week-long hiatus.

Red Wings' Calvin Pickard: Struggles in relief appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pickard made 14 saves on 19 shots in an 8-2 loss to the Islanders on Tuesday.

Pickard only recently joined the Red Wings, called up from the minors Jan. 12, and was shelled in 52+ minutes of action against the Islanders. His record at the top level remains at 0-2-0, but Pickard's save percentage is now .797, following five goals against Tuesday night. He, and every other Red Wings goaltender, cannot be trusted in fantasy.

Red Wings' Calvin Pickard: Called up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Wings recalled Pickard on an emergency basis Sunday from AHL Grand Rapids.

It's unclear whether goaltenders Jonathan Bernier and Jimmy Howard will miss Sunday's game against Buffalo, but Pickard was added to the roster. The 27-year-old has made 24 appearances for AHL Grand Rapids this season and owns a 13-8-3 record along with a 2.90 GAA and .902 save percentage.

Red Wings' Calvin Pickard: Reassigned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pickard was demoted to AHL Grand Rapids on Monday.

Pickard became expendable with Jonathan Bernier and Jimmy Howard both healthy again. Barring an additional injury, Pickard figures to close out the 2019-20 campaign in the minors where he has posted a 9-7-3 record and .893 save percentage.

Red Wings' Calvin Pickard: Summoned from AHL affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Wings recalled Pickard from AHL Grand Rapids on Friday.

Jonathan Bernier is dealing with a groin injury, so Pickard will likely back up Jimmy Howard against the Panthers on Saturday. The 27-year-old will return to the minors as soon as Bernier is ready to return.

Red Wings' Calvin Pickard: Dropped down a level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Detroit sent Pickard to the minors Monday.

Pickard will be back with the big club for Saturday's matchup with Florida if Jonathan Bernier (groin) is unavailable, but for now, he'll head to the AHL to keep playing during the NHL's holiday break.

Red Wings' Calvin Pickard: Appears in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pickard made 16 saves on 20 shots in relief Saturday in a 4-1 loss to Toronto.

He was thrust into the blue paint when Jonathan Bernier pulled a groin muscle just three shots into the game. Pickard didn't get much offensive support on the night and will return to the back-up role next game.

Red Wings' Calvin Pickard: Recalled by Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Wings recalled Pickard from AHL Grand Rapids on Thursday.

Jimmy Howard (groin) is still in the minors on a conditioning loan, so Pickard will back up Jonathan Bernier on Saturday against Toronto. The 27-year-old netminder will return to Grand Rapids as soon as Howard is recalled from the AHL.

Red Wings' Calvin Pickard: Shuffled to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Wings assigned Pickard to AHL Grand Rapids on Sunday.

It was an ugly Red Wings debut for the 27-year-old Friday, as he was torched to the tune of six goals on 35 shots against the Flyers. Pickard's reassignment likely clears the way for Jimmy Howard's (lower body) return off injured reserve in the coming days.

Red Wings' Calvin Pickard: Torched in Wings debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pickard permitted five goals on 29 shots in Friday's 6-1 loss to the Flyers.

Pickard's debut with the Red Wings couldn't have gone much worse, and the fact that this performance came against one of his former teams makes the loss particularly painful for the third-string goalie. We wouldn't trust any Detroit goalies for wins since the Eastern Conference club has added just two goals through four games.

Red Wings' Calvin Pickard: Set for season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pickard will make his Red Wings debut in Friday's game against the Flyers, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.

Pickard is getting the first game of Detroit's back-to-back with Jimmy Howard (lower body) unavailable. He's familiar with the Flyers, for whom Pickard made 11 appearances last season. The 27-year-old owns a career 2.93 GAA and .908 save percentage.

Red Wings' Calvin Pickard: Set to join big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pickard will be called up from AHL Grand Rapids prior to Friday's game versus the Flyers, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

Jimmy Howard (lower body) was injured in Wednesday's contest versus the Maple Leafs. Jonathan Bernier, who is battling an illness, relieved Howard. Pickard's promotion will see him serve as a backup option should Bernier be unable to play over the weekend (Friday in Philadelphia, Saturday versus Washington).

Red Wings' Calvin Pickard: Finds suitor in Red Wings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pickard signed a two-year contract with the Red Wings on Monday.

Detroit does not have any goalies -- including non-roster types -- under contract beyond the 2021-22 campaign, which means Pickard has a shot at countering his journeyman ways and finding a sense of continuity with one team. But then again, the Wings count as the sixth NHL club he's been associated with since his career began with the Avalanche five years ago, so there are no guarantees. Pickard owns a career 2.93 GAA and .908 save percentage through 104 career contests.

Coyotes' Calvin Pickard: Expected to join Red Wings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pickard is expected to sign a deal with Detroit when free agency opens up, Frank Seravalli of TSN.ca reports.

Since the start of the 2016-17 campaign, Pickard has suited up for four different NHL teams, most recently the Coyotes last season. He owns a .908 save percentage and 2.93 GAA across 104 NHL appearances. Should he sign with Detroit, he'll compete with Jonathan Bernier and Jimmy Howard for playing time.

Coyotes' Calvin Pickard: Suffers loss in season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pickard allowed four goals on 32 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Jets on Saturday.

The 2018-19 season was one to forget for Pickard. He started the season with the Flyers, but after a poor start, the Coyotes claimed him off waivers. However, Arizona didn't have a need for him immediately despite a lower-body injury to Antti Raanta, so Pickard played in the minors. He finally debuted in Arizona during January, but in six appearances with the Coyotes, he went 0-4-0 with an .892 save percentage. Overall, Pickard posted a 4-6-2 record, 3.86 GAA and an .875 save percentage in 17 NHL games this season. He will be an unrestricted free agent this summer.

Coyotes' Calvin Pickard: Between pipes Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pickard will tend twine at home for Saturday's season finale versus Winnipeg, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

With the 'Yotes trying to chase down a wild-card spot, the club relied heavily on Darcy Kuemper, which limited Pickard to just two relief appearances in the last 22 games. The organization will reward the 26-year-old for his patience by giving him the final start of the year. Heading into the offseason, Pickard will be an unrestricted free agent and may not have a spot in the desert once Antti Raanta (lower body) is fully fit. Pickard will have to hope his 4-5-2 record and 3.84 GAA in 16 appearances for Arizona and Philadelphia is enough to earn him a roster spot somewhere next season.

Coyotes' Calvin Pickard: Struggles in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pickard stopped 15 of 18 shots in a relief appearance during a 7-1 loss to Chicago on Monday.

Pickard has now given up three or more goals in three of four appearances with Arizona and has yet to put his name in the winning column. With Darcy Kuemper playing well most nights, there is no reason Pickard should be in your lineup.

February 18, 2019 11:00 PM
Coyotes' Calvin Pickard: Torched by Flames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pickard stopped 28 of 32 shots in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Flames.

Calgary's final goal was scored into an empty net. Pickard is now 0-3-0 as a Coyote with a 3.41 GAA and .902 save percentage, and he poses little threat to Darcy Kuemper's current spot at the top of the depth chart.
