McIlrath was reassigned to AHL Grand Rapids on Sunday, per CBS Sports.
McIlrath only got as far as the Red Wings' taxi squad. The 28-year-old doesn't figure to make enough of an impact in the NHL to warrant fantasy consideration.
McIlrath was promoted from AHL Grand Rapids to the taxi squad Monday.
McIlrath hasn't appeared in a game since last season when he split time between the NHL and AHL levels. However, he hasn't scored a point in the NHL since the 2016-17 season. The 28-year-old blueliner is likely just a depth body for Detroit at the moment.
The Red Wings reassigned McIlrath to AHL Grand Rapids on Saturday.
McIlrath was brought up Thursday but didn't draw into a game. The 27-year-old hasn't produced with the big club this season, going pointless over 16 games, but he dished out 48 hits in that span.
Detroit recalled McIlrath from AHL Grand Rapids on Thursday.
The Red Wings only had six healthy defensemen on their roster prior to McIlrath's promotion, so he'll be on hand as the team's seventh blueliner Thursday against Winnipeg. The 27-year-old has gone scoreless while posting a minus-4 rating in 16 appearances with Detroit this season.
The Red Wings assigned McIlrath to AHL Grand Rapids on Wednesday.
McIlrath already cleared waivers in November, so the Red Wings can freely send him down to minors. The 27-year-old blueliner has gone pointless in the last 16 games with the big club, but he's stirred things up with 48 hits and 23 PIM during that stretch.
Despite being placed on waivers Tuesday, McIlrath will remain with the Red Wings ahead of Wednesday's matchup with Toronto, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Mike Green (upper body) still isn't ready to return, so McIlrath will remain with the big club for at least one more contest. The 27-year-old blueliner will likely be sent to the minors as soon as Green is given the green light.
Detroit waived McIlrath on Tuesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
McIlrath's placement on waivers indicates the Red Wings are expecting to have Mike Green (upper body) back for Wednesday's matchup with Toronto. The 27-year-old will continue to be one of the first skaters Detroit turns to when dealing with injuries on the back end, but he won't have any fantasy value in 2019-20.
The Red Wings recalled McIlrath from AHL Grand Rapids on Tuesday.
Trevor Daley (undisclosed) and Mike Green (illness) are both expected to be sidelined for Detroit's next two games, so McIlrath will round out the team's depth at defense for the foreseeable future. The 27-year-old has picked up three helpers in 10 AHL appearances this season.
McIlrath signed a two-year contract extension with the Red Wings on Thursday.
McIlrath has only appeared in 13 NHL contests over the past three seasons, so he's nothing more than organizational depth at this stage in his career. The 27-year-old blueliner will continue to spend most of his time in the minors during the duration of his contract with the Red Wings.
McIlrath was demoted to AHL Grand Rapids on Sunday.
Selected 10th overall in the 2010 NHL Draft, McIlrath has just five points in 50 career NHL contests, including seven games without a point this season. The 26-year-old should spend most of next season in the AHL yet again.
McIlrath was called up under emergency conditions from AHL Grand Rapids on Sunday.
With the Red Wings dealing with multiple injuries on the back end -- specifically Mike Green (illness) and Johnathan Ericsson (lower body) -- McIlrath received the call. The 26-year-old hasn't played in the NHL since 2016, and has just five points in 43 career games. It's unclear whether he'll play in Monday's road game against San Jose, but McIlrath likely won't have an impact from a fantasy prospective.
McIlrath was placed on waivers by the Red Wings on Sunday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
McIlrath failed to earn a promotion to the NHL last season, instead logging 76 games for AHL Grand Rapids. It looks like the 2010 10th overall pick will once against start the year in the minors -- where he likely will log most of his minutes this season.
McIlrath was waived by the Red Wings on Sunday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
The Wings acquired McIlrath in the Thomas Vanek trade with the Panthers at the most recent dealing deadline. While the imposing rearguard didn't end up playing at all with Detroit, he did hit the ice for 21 contests with its minor-league affiliate AHL Grand Rapids, picking up four helpers to go along with 42 PIM. McIlrath has been a total bust since the Rangers made him the 10th overall pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, and he can be left alone in all fantasy formats.
McIlrath inked a two-year, two-way contract with the Red Wings on Wednesday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
McIlrath was expected to hit the open market rather than re-up with the Red Wings, but the two sides eventually came to an agreement. He split his time between the Panthers and Red Wings organizations last season, but McIlrath played just five games at the NHL level. Despite being a first-round pick in 2010, the blueliner has played more than five games in the NHL just once so far in his career. At age 25, McIlrath's time as a prospect has begun to close. He'll attempt to earn a spot on the Opening Night roster in training camp, but the tough blueliner will likely remain a fringe NHL player and doesn't possess a ton of upside for fantasy purposes.
McIlrath is a pending unrestricted free agent unlikely to be retained by the Red Wings, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Known as an agitating defenseman, McIlrath was tossed around the league this season, making pit stops with the Rangers, Panthers and Red Wings. However, the 10th overall pick from the 2010 draft failed to make an appearance for Detroit, despite the parent club experiencing a myriad of injuries and even losing Alexey Marchenko to Toronto through waivers. McIlrath's last two contracts were one-year deals, and he may prove to be a bargain for a team that wants a tougher look on the back line next season.
McIlrath was acquired by the Wings from the Panthers along with a third-round pick in exchange for Thomas Vanek on Wednesday, Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News reports.
McIlrath finds himself with his third organization of the season, having begun the 2016-17 campaign with the Rangers. Since being selected 10th overall in the 2010 NHL Draft, the defenseman has logged a mere 43 NHL contests, tallying just three goals and two assists. Even if he can secure regular ice time with the Red Wings, the 24-year-old's lack of production severely limits his fantasy value in most formats.
McIlrath was reassigned to AHL Springfield on Tuesday, Steve Goldstein of Fox Sports Florida reports.
The 2010 first-round pick has been a non-factor for the Panthers this season, recording a goal in five games while averaging less than 10 minutes on ice. McIlrath could be recalled this season if Florida is looking for defensive depth, but don't expect him to become a fantasy contributor anytime soon.
McIlrath was recalled from his conditioning stint with AHL Springfield on Monday, Harvey Fialkov of the Sun Sentinel reports.
In his prior NHL stints this year, he has one point in five games. He hasn't been much better in the AHL with two points in 10 games. That said, he will provide defensive depth to a team that needs some.
McIlrath was reassigned to the AHL's Thunderbirds for conditioning Wednesday.
McIlrath averaged a mere 7:15 of ice time before watching the next seven games from the press box. Obviously, there isn't much fantasy appeal here with the hulking defenseman away from game ice trying to get back into playing shape.
McIlrath scored his first goal of the season in the third period of Tuesday's loss to Minnesota.
Playing in just his fourth game of the campaign, McIlrath took a point shot that deflected off a Wild player's skate and beat Devan Dubnyk. The meat-and-potatoes defenseman is unlikely to carve out a big enough role with Florida to move the fantasy needle, but McIlrath might be able to help in the PIM and hits columns in cavernous settings.
