Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Heading to Worlds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening (undisclosed) is on the preliminary roster for the 2019 IIHF World Championship in Slovakia from May 10-26, USA Hockey reports.

Glendening dealt with an undisclosed issue that cut his 2018-19 campaign short by four games, but he should be all systems go for the international tournament. The Michigan native posted career highs in several categories this season, including points (23), hits (198) and blocked shots (102) through 78 contests.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Ends season with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening (undisclosed) isn't in the projected lineup for Saturday's regular-season finale against the Sabres, Dave Hogg of NHL.com reports.

This is an anticlimactic way for Glendening to end his best statistical season. He uncorked 10 goals and matched a career high with 23 helpers to complement a plus-2 rating. Additionally, he reached personal bests in hits (198) and blocked shots (102). The blue-collar defenseman seemingly does whatever he's asked and his infectious attitude should continue to a boon for the rebuilding Wings in 2019-20 -- and beyond.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Campaign all but finished
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Wings are seriously contemplating whether to shut Glendening (undisclosed) down for the rest of the year, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.

Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill stopped just short of confirming that Glendening will miss the final three games of the regular season, but it's safe to say that the industrious winger will miss out on the action against the Penguins on Tuesday. Glendening has already treated his owners to a career year consisting of 10 goals and 23 assists over 78 games, but he's a relatively safe drop if you're in dire need of a free-agent forward to stream in the waning moments of the season.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Jeff Blashill said Glendening (undisclosed) will sit out of Sunday's game versus the Bruins.

Glendening was battling an undisclosed injury earlier in the week, and it's unclear if this is related. When he plays, Glendening adds a solid two-way threat with 23 points, 198 hits and 102 blocked shots over 78 games. The Red Wings have called up Dominic Turgeon to provide depth to the forwards.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Still in line to play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill believes Glendening (undisclosed) will play against the Sabres on Thursday.

This corroborates a report from Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site, as published on social media Wednesday. Glendening has already established a career-high 23 points (10 goals, 13 assists) through 76 games this season, but most of his shared wealth in fantasy games comes in the form of 5-on-5 and defensive situations.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Expected to play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening (undisclosed) is expected to be available for Thursday's matchup with Buffalo, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.

Glendening is apparently dealing with a minor nagging injury, but it shouldn't prevent him from suiting up against the Sabres. However, the Red Wings have recalled Martin Frk just in case Glendening is ultimately unable to go. Confirmation on the veteran winger's status should surface prior to puck drop.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Notches helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening picked up an assist in Monday's 3-2 win over the Sharks.

The helper came on Christoffer Ehn's shorthanded goal in the third period, giving Glendening his third shorthanded point of the year. The defensive forward has had his best year on offense with 23 points (10 goals, 13 assists) in 76 games. Additionally, he has 192 hits, 100 blocked shots, and 100 shots on goal.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Valuable to Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening is likely to stick with the Red Wings through the rebuild, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

As a team permitting 2.75 goals per game (26th in the NHL), the Wings have struggled to keep the puck out of the net even with Glendening, one of the team's premier line defenders, in tow. It wouldn't be prudent for the team to sell him off at the trade deadline, as the left winger only costs $1.8 million per season and is on the books through 2020-21. Besides, with nine goals and 11 helpers through 57 games, Glendening needs only two more points to establish a new career high.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: One of each in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening scored a goal and assisted on another in Tuesday's 3-2 win over Nashville.

Glendening opened the scoring Tuesday with his ninth of the year before adding the primary assist on Andreas Athanasiou's game-winner 4:08 into the third period. The bottom-six forward, in 57 games this season, has racked up 20 points and is one point shy of matching his career high for points in a season, set back in 2015-16.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Nets two goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening lit the lamp twice in Tuesday's win over the Oilers.

Glendening reeled in a pass from Darren Helm and deked out Mikko Koskinen to extend Detroit's lead to 2-0. He later tallied the game-winning goal by speeding past a defenseman and sneaking one under Koskinen's arm. This is Glendening's first two-goal game since March 27, 2018, and he now has eight goals in 51 games this year.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Will suit up after all
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Updating a previous report, Glendening (undisclosed) will play in Tuesday's game versus the Oilers, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Glendening missed Monday's practice but was able to shake off his mystery injury before Tuesday's contest. He'll return to his third-line center position. Glendening has 15 points in 50 games and adds a physical touch with 116 hits in that span.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Ruled out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening (undisclosed) will not play Tuesday evening against the Oilers, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Glendening reportedly took part in an optional skate Tuesday, but he will miss his first game of the 2018-19 season. While the Michigan native brings a lot of energy and grit to the table when active, the Wings can compensate for his absence by shifting penalty-killing specialist Christoffer Ehn back to the center spot and sending Martin Frk to the right wing.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Expected to play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening (undisclosed) missed Monday's practice but is expected to suit up in Edmonton on Tuesday, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Glendening has yet to miss a contest this season, scoring six goals and 15 points in 50 games so far. He's on pace to surpass his career high of 21 points while averaging nearly 16 minutes of ice time per game. While he's expected to play, Martin Frk would be his most likely replacement if he has to sit out Tuesday.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Dependable two-way skater
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening finished the calendar year with five goals and eight assists through 41 games as part of the 2018-19 campaign.

A recurring theme for Detroit has been its crop of blueliners having trouble staying healthy. Trevor Daley (foot), Mike Green (lower body) and Danny DeKeyser (hand) are the latest victims of the injury bug, so coach Jeff Blashill will put a lot of faith in some of his better line defenders to compensate for a thin blue line. Glendening fits the bill -- he has a tidy plus-5 rating and tends to stick to opponents like glue -- so expect him to assume a decent amount of playing time, especially in shorthanded situations.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Sneaky producer in attacking zone
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening is on pace for 11 goals and 16 assists this season. If he continues this pace, he'll establish a new career high in points.

An unselfish third-line grinder, Glendening skates with agitating scoring winger Tyler Bertuzzi and the 6-foot-6, 221-pound rookie Michael Rasmussen, which has been opening up scoring lanes for Glendening, whose current shooting percentage (12.9) is also at a career-best clip. The Michigan native is likely an afterthought in most season-long leagues, but he often makes for an intriguing budget play in DFS tournament settings.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Flashes two-way skill in rout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening registered a goal, two hits and another pair of blocked shots to complement a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 6-1 home win over the Coyotes.

Just as a Red Wings penalty had expired, Glendening perfectly anticipated a Justin Abdelkader outlet pass from the defensive zone and had no trouble beating Darcy Kuemper for his second goal of the season. Make that seven points in 18 games for Glendening, whose rigid work ethic and no-quit motor make him a natural fit in Detroit.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Delivers helper in rare win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening contributed an assist in Sunday's 4-2 home win over the Stars.

Glendening has recorded four points through his first 11 games this season, which isn't too shabby considering he's a bottom-six grinder and the Red Wings have potted just 25 goals as a team.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Finds back of net in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening was the lone goal-scorer for the Red Wings in Thursday's 3-1 road loss to the Lightning. He also collected two hits and another pair of blocked shots.

Glendening produced a greasy goal at the doorstep, getting on the scoreboard for the first time this season and foiling Andrei Vasilevskiy's shutout bid in the process. The Wings love having this guy around since he's physical and works so hard to contribute in a bottom-six capacity, but Glendening has never topped 21 points in the five-plus years that he's been in the NHL.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Flashes two-way skills in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening registered two assists and two blocked shots, five hits and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 4-3 overtime home win over the Bruins.

Glendening was a force on both ends of the ice in this one. The Red Wings have him under contract for three more years at an annual cost of $1.8 million. He won't move the needle in most fantasy leagues, but the Michigan native has already been with the Original Six franchise for five seasons and there's value in his gritty play. Glendening has accumulated 287 hits since the start of the 2016-17 campaign.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Will take more draws
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening will be relied upon more heavily for faceoffs -- especially in the defensive zone -- to start the 2018-19 campaign, as captain Henrik Zetterberg (back) is in danger of missing significant time.

Glendening underwent wrist surgery in April, but the Red Wings' official site made no mention of the operation in their exclusive report on the bottom-six grinder, therefore, it's safe to conclude that it's a non-issue at this point. Last season, Zetterberg took a whopping 1,375 faceoffs (sixth in the NHL) compared to Glendening's 679, so it'll be interesting to see just how many draws the Michigan native takes this time around. More importantly, though, Glendening's increased responsibility should help him join the 20-point club for just the second time in his career.
