  • Red Wings' Luke Witkowski: Tallies rare point

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/5/18) Witkowski had an assist during Tuesday's 6-5 shootout loss to Tampa Bay.

    Witkowski got his name onto the scoresheet, as he recorded not only his first assist, but his first point of the season. The physical defender should not be counted on for much ice time, let alone many points, so he is not worth adding in fantasy leagues.

    Red Wings' Luke Witkowski: Frequenting press box

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/14/18) Witkowski sat out as a healthy scratch for the fourth consecutive game Tuesday, watching his team defeat the Coyotes at home, 6-1.

    Coincidence or not, the Wings have won the last four games without the services of Witkowski. The Western Michigan University product, who possesses sandpaper grit, knows that he's only going to be deployed against some of the league's bigger opponents, or when his team finds itself slammed with injuries. As a result, he can safely be bypassed in all fantasy leagues.

    Red Wings' Luke Witkowski: Bounces back to NHL

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/3/18) Witkowski was recalled from AHL Grand Rapids on Wednesday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

    Witkowski was assigned to the Griffins on Tuesday, but that was before the Wings knew that they would be placing Jonathan Ericsson (upper body) and Niklas Kronwall (undisclosed) on IR. Witkowski is a non-factor in most fantasy leagues since he's an enforcer playing in an era where most teams would much rather have a speedy scorer than a guy whose primary focus is to drop the mitts.

    Red Wings' Luke Witkowski: Will sync up with AHL's Griffins

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/2/18) Witkowski was reassigned to AHL Grand Rapids on Tuesday.

    The fear in sending Witkowski to the minors is that the Red Wings could get pushed around without him. Listed at 6-foot-2, 210 pounds, the 28-year-old winger arguably acts the part of an old-school enforcer better than anyone else on the organizational depth chart. He's largely devoid of offense, though, adding just eight points over 85 career NHL games between the Lightning and Wings.

    Red Wings' Luke Witkowski: Remains at top level for now

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/1/18) Despite clearing waivers, Witkowski will remain with Detroit for the time being, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

    The Red Wings' blue-line corps has been decimated by injuries, so the club will take a wait-and-see approach to determine whether Witkowski -- who can slot in as a defenseman or forward -- will be needed at the top level for Thursday's home opener versus the Blue Jackets.
