The Red Wings signed Biega to a one-year, $875,000 contract extension Sunday.
Biega has tallied just three assists in 47 games with the Red Wings this season. The 31-year-old blueliner should continue to get regular playing time on Detroit's blue line next season.
Biega notched an assist, two blocked shots and a team-high six hits in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Avalanche.
Biega picked up his second helpers in seven games, but he's had just three assists all season. The 31-year-old blueliner has added 107 hits, 52 shots and 44 blocked shots in 46 contests. Despite being on pace to play a career-high in games, Biega could have one of his worst years on offense -- there's virtually no reason for fantasy owners to keep track of his production.
Biega supplied a primary assist Tuesday in a 4-3 win over the Canadiens.
Biega set the table for the first of two goals by Andreas Athanasiou, and the defenseman rounded out the steady performance with two hits and a blocked shot over 19:47 of ice time. Biega could see a slight boost in fantasy value as long as he continues to share the ice with a surging Athanasiou, but keep in mind that this was just his second point in 40 games as a Red Wing.
Biega logged a season-high 20:55 of ice time in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Avalanche.
Biega saw additional shifts once Mike Green departed the contest with an upper-body injury, but the game couldn't end soon enough for the former, as he skated to a minus-4 rating. The ex-Canuck plays aggressively (61 hits) and occasionally jumps in front of the puck (26 blocked shots), though he's not a viable fantasy option on a porous Red Wings club.
Biega registered an assist Sunday in a 5-2 loss to the Coyotes.
This was Biega's first point as a Red Wing. As a third-pairing defenseman playing for the league's weakest offense at 2.16 goals per game, he has no fantasy appeal.
Biega dished out four hits in 16:14 of ice time versus Carolina on Sunday.
Biega appears to have worked his way into the lineup of late, appearing in five of the Wings' previous seven contests, in which he averaged 12:52 of ice time and registered three shots, three blocks and 11 hits. The blueliner shouldn't be expected to start racking up points and is far from a lock for the lineup, which makes him a low-end fantasy option.
Biega, a seldom-used defenseman, returned to action Saturday, logging four hits and two shots in a 4-0 loss to the Panthers.
Acquired from Vancouver in an Oct. 6 trade for depth forward David Pope, Biega has only appeared in three games for a Detroit team that is struggling mightily to open the season based on a 4-10-1 record. The ex-Canuck won't be the answer to the Wings' problems, though he provides a nice change of pace from the back end.
The Red Wings recalled Biega from AHL Grand Rapids on Wednesday.
Danny DeKeyser (undisclosed) likely won't be available for Wednesday's matchup with Ottawa, so Biega will round out Detroit's depth at defense against the Senators. The 31-year-old has gone scoreless in two appearances with the big club this season.
Detroit assigned Biega to AHL Grand Rapids on Tuesday.
Biega has been a healthy scratch for five of the Red Wings' first seven games of the season, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. The former Canuck will continue to be a decent depth option for Detroit, but he won't have any fantasy value in 2019-20.
Biega was recalled from AHL Grand Rapids on Monday.
Biega was acquired from Vancouver on Sunday and will join a bruised-up Detroit blue line. The 31-year-old defenseman will likely fill a third-pairing role or watch from the press box as a healthy scratch.
Biega was traded to the Red Wings from the Canucks in exchange for forward David Pope on Sunday.
Biega was waived and sent down to AHL Utica before the season after scoring 16 points in 41 NHL contests last season. Detroit's blue line has been struck by the injury bug with Jonathan Ericsson (undisclosed) and Trevor Daley (lower body) both seemingly on the shelf for an unknown amount of time. The 31-year-old Biega will be nothing more than a depth fill-in piece.
Biega was waived by the Canucks for the purpose of reassignment Monday.
Biega finished on a high note last season, posting 11 points over the final 22 games with the big club while manning a top-four role. Chris Tanev was out with an ankle injury for most of those games and he's healthy now, and the Canucks signed Tyler Myers to a long-term deal this summer. That essentially left Biega as a long shot to make the roster, so he'll start the season with AHL Utica if he clears waivers.
Biega posted an assist and went plus-3 in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Sharks.
Biega is up to 16 points in 41 contests this season, adding 101 hits for good measure. He isn't likely to make an impact in standard formats, but his physical presence and decent point production has made him viable over the second half of the campaign in deeper formats.
Biega dished an assist in Saturday's 3-2 shootout win over the Stars.
Biega added two hits, two blocked shots, two shots on goal and two PIM in a deuces-wild effort. With a career-high 15 points in 40 games, the 30-year-old blueliner has made a larger-than-expected impact with the Canucks this year. He's also up to 100 hits after Saturday, but it's still likely not enough to warrant fantasy attention.
Biega had an assist and went plus-3 in Wednesday's 7-4 win over the Senators.
He also delivered three hits, four shots and two blocked shots in the contest. Biega has only three assists in nine games in March, giving him 14 points in 35 appearances this year. That marks a career high for the 30-year-old, but it's not enough to justify fantasy attention in most formats.
Biega assisted on both Canucks goals in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Golden Knights.
The defender has five assists over his last six games. Biega added three hits and three shots in the contest, giving him 17 hits and 12 shots in that six-game stretch. He's enjoying a career year with two goals and 11 assists in 30 games. Biega skates on the second pairing for a rebuilding Canucks team, but he does own a plus-2 rating. It's unlikely the 30-year-old has suddenly cracked the code to NHL success, but he's enjoying a run of production unseen in his career prior to the last few weeks.
Biega earned two assists in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Avalanche on Wednesday.
Biega has a goal and four assists in his last six games, adding a plus-6 rating in that span. Additionally, he had three hits and two blocked shots in a well-rounded effort. Biega now has a career-high 10 points in just 25 games this season. He remains a defense-first rearguard, but his recent spike in production may make him worth a look.
Biega scored a goal in Monday's 4-0 win over the Ducks.
Biega has a goal and two assists in his last five games, while adding four PIM, nine hits, seven blocked shots and 11 shots on goal in that span. He skated 18:16 in Monday's contest, 3:02 more than his season average entering the night. He likely doesn't move the needle for fantasy purposes, as the Canadian blueliner is more suited to the defensive aspects of the game.
Biega pumped five shots on goal and blocked three shots in a 1-0 loss to the Ducks on Wednesday.
Both of those numbers are outliers, as Biega has only 13 blocks and 45 shots on goal in 19 games this season, to go along with his primary stat of 55 hits. However, with Alex Edler (face) and Chris Tanev (leg) both on the shelf, Biega has the opportunity to carve out more playing time in the near future, although the fantasy effect is expected to be minimal.
Biega registered his first goal of the year in Thursday's overtime loss to Chicago.
Biega has regularly been a healthy scratch this year, appearing in only 16 contests. With an injury to Alex Edler (face), Biega slots back into the lineup. He made an impact in Thursday's game, scoring a goal and dishing out five hits. He has five points on the year, so don't expect scoring to be a regular habit for Biega.
