  • Red Wings' Luke Witkowski: Unlikely to make parent-club roster

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (8/21/18) Witkowski will be hard-pressed to make the Opening Night roster with the Red Wings, The Detroit News reports.

    Witkowski is considered one of the toughest players on the Wings, but there are a handful of blue-line prospects champing at the bit for playing time at the highest level, including, but not limited to: Joe Hicketts, Libor Sulak and Filip Hronek. It's completely safe to ignore the former in fantasy settings since he's only produced eight points since his NHL career began with the Lightning in 2014-15.

    Red Wings' Luke Witkowski: Kept off fantasy radar

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/9/18) Witkowski provided a mere four points through 31 games in 2017-18, as he was a part-time player who only averaged 6:53 of ice time.

    The Wings primarily deployed Witkowski against bigger opponents and he managed 57 hits with 68 PIM in limited action. You won't see him on any fantasy rosters next season, though his ability to play up front or on the blue line is a nice luxury when injuries threaten the big club. He'll be an unrestricted free agent after the 2018-19 campaign.

    Red Wings' Luke Witkowski: Drops gloves in losing effort

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/4/18) Witkowski amassed three hits and five penalty minutes in Sunday's 4-1 road loss to Minnesota.

    Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill opted to scratch Martin Frk in favor of the more physical Witkowski, but in hindsight, that probably wasn't his finest decision. Witkowski, who sparred with defenseman Nick Seeler in the second period to pick up that five-minute major, only ended up with 5:25 of ice time. His role is much too small to warrant fantasy attention.

    Red Wings' Luke Witkowski: Barely seeing ice in Detroit

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/27/18) Witkowski is still searching for his first point through 19 games as a Red Wing.

    No one is ever going to mistake Witkowski for an offensive producer, but even a broken clock is correct twice a day, right? Well, as much as the Wings appreciate how the Michigan native can play forward or patrol the blue line, he's only set eight shots on goal this year. Even worse, he's averaging a mere 6:13 of ice time with his already limited fantasy prospects further squelched by the fact that he missed 10 games due to suspension, having jumped back on the ice after a brawl. As you can see, there are several reasons to avoid Witkowski in the fantasy realm, and it's probably only a matter of time before the Wings consider cutting him loose.

    Red Wings' Luke Witkowski: Suspension over

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/10/17) Witkowski is eligible to play Monday against Florida after serving a 10-game suspension.

    The Michigan native earned the hefty suspension for returning to the ice after being ejected in a game against Calgary on Nov. 15. With just four points in a 62-game NHL career, don't expect Witkowski's return to make much of a fantasy impact.
