Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Hustles for tally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening opened the scoring for Detroit in its 5-2 win over the Predators on Thursday.

This was a highlight-reel tally from Glendening. His backhand shot was blocked by Pekka Rinne's pad, but the third-line pivot stayed with the play and flipped the biscuit into the cage on his own rebound. Certainly, this goal wouldn't have been possible had Glendening not showcased such determination and hustle -- staples of his game that make him such a good fit in Detroit.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Generates another helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening produced an assist Saturday in a 2-1 win over the Panthers.

The Michigan native was held without a point through the first 13 games. Glendening then suffered an upper-body injury that kept him out for two contests, only to return with a three-point effort to the detriment of the Predators. His latest apple was rather clutch, as it helped spark a second-period rally and ultimately netted the Wings two points in the standings. Still, we'd be cautious when it comes to deploying Glendening in fantasy -- he plays for a bottom-dwelling squad and his third-line occupancy demands a great deal of defensive responsibility.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Unexpected three-point outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening (upper body) scored a goal with two assists and three shots in Saturday's 4-2 win over Nashville. He also went 14-7 (66.7 percent) on faceoffs and was plus-3.

Where did that come from? The 31-year-old, back from a two-game absence, entered the night without a point in 13 contests this season and emerged with the first three-point showing of his NHL career. Glendening muscled a backhander past Pekka Rinne to put Detroit on top 3-0 late in the second period, and he also picked up assists on tallies by Adam Erne and Anthony Mantha. Despite the offensive outburst, Glendening is a bottom-six role player who had just nine points in 60 games a season ago.

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

Glendening (upper body) is expected to return to the lineup for Saturday's game versus Nashville.

Glendening has missed Detroit's last two games with an upper-body injury, but he's expected to return to a bottom-six role Saturday. He's gone scoreless through 13 games this campaign.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Out again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening (upper body) will not be available for Thursday's contest against Nashville.

Glendening has missed the last two games while dealing with an upper-body issue. He appeared in the first 13 games for Detroit, averaging just under 13 minutes of ice time per game with a minus-6 rating and no points.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Unavailable Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening (upper body) won't play Tuesday versus Florida.

Glendening (upper body) exited Sunday's game against the Panthers after taking a hit to the head from Florida's Radko Gudas, and he'll miss at least one additional contest as a result. With Glendening on the shelf, Frans Nielsen is expected to take over as Detroit's fourth-line center.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Looks to be OK
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening (upper body) said he felt alright after sustaining a hard hit that forced him out of Sunday's game against the Panthers, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

Glendening was violently checked to the head by Radko Gudas in the first period, resulting in only 3:50 of ice time for the former. While it appears that he has dodged a serious injury, look for the Red Wings to reevaluate Glendening ahead of Tuesday's road clash versus the Panthers. The Michigan native has struggled mighitly this season; he has a minus-6 rating and is still searching for his first point through 13 games.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Suffers upper-body injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening won't return to Sunday's game against the Panthers after suffering an upper-body injury.

Glendening took a hard hit from Panthers defenseman Radko Gudas in the first period, and he immediately went to the locker room. The 34-year-old took four shifts and logged 3:50 before exiting. The Red Wings' next game is Tuesday against the Panthers again.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Evidently fine after puck hits face
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening was hit in the nose by a deflected puck during Tuesday's scrimmage, but he made a quick return, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

After a brief visit to the dressing room, Glendening was spotted on the ice with a tissue in his nostril to stop the bleeding. Fortunately, it looks like the industrious winger has avoided a lasting injury, and Glendening should be excited for a clean slate after finishing with just six goals, three assists and a minus-29 rating through 60 games in 2019-20.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Unable to join scoring foray
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening's two-month scoreless drought extended to 27 games since he was held in check Sunday in a 5-4 shootout win over the Lightning.

Technically, Glendening put the puck into the cage while facing the Bolts, but it was an inadvertent deflection into his own goal. After banking a career-high 23 points in 78 games last season, the Michigan native has just six goals and three helpers through 59 contests in 2019-20. The organization appreciates his hustle on both ends of the ice, but that only goes so far in the fantasy realm.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Likely staying in Motown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening won't be an easy target at the trade deadline despite Detroit's abysmal record, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

As suggested by Khan, both head coach Jeff Blashill and general manager Steve Yzerman are partial to the industrious middle-six contributor. From a fantasy perspective, he's not moving the needle very much based on an output of nine points (six goals, three assists) over 39 games, but Glendening is a strong defensive forward who's lauded for his work ethic. The American skater has been with the Wings for all seven years of his NHL career, and that's not likely to change anytime soon.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Finds twine in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening potted a goal on four shots and added a team-high six hits in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Blackhawks.

Glendening's tally at 16:53 of the first period gave the Red Wings a 2-0 lead. The 30-year-old has picked up the pace with two goals and a helper in his last five games. He's at nine points, 95 hits and 52 shots on goal through 32 appearances this season in a middle-six role.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Production slipping
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening has just one point (an assist) in eight games this month.

The industrious pivot generated a goal and an assist in a surprising Opening Night road win over the Predators, but he's pumped the brakes in a major way, having produced only four points since the season's commencement. Of course, a wrist injury shelved Glendening for 11 games in the fall, so that should be taken into account when seizing up the Michigan native's fantasy prospects.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Buries first goal since return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening potted a shorthanded goal Thursday, but the Red Wings still lost to the Blue Jackets by a score of 5-4.

Frans Nielsen broke up a play in the defensive zone and perfectly fed Glendening on the rush for the shorty. A horrendous third period resulted in another loss for the visitors, but Glendening looks healthy after missing 11 straight games; he's racked up 11 hits since returning to action versus the Sharks last Saturday.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Ready to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening (wrist) is expected to return to the lineup for Saturday's game against San Jose, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Glendening has missed Detroit's last 11 games due to a wrist injury, but he should be ready to resume his usual bottom-six duties against the Sharks. The 30-year-old American has picked up three points in 10 games this campaign.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Return still a ways off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening is recovering from surgery on his left wrist, though he's not close to a return despite being able to practice, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

Detroit is without Glendening and fiery forward Justin Abdelkader (undisclosed) for an indefinite period of time, so it'll be up to recent call-up Givani Smith to patch up the fourth line, while newcomer Robby Fabbri comfortably settles into the top six.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Heads to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening (upper body) was placed on injured reserve retroactive to Oct. 23, per the NHL's official media site.

Glendening struggling before his injury, posting a minus-6 rating and seven shots on net over the previous six contests. He wasn't expected to return until Nov. 8 anyway, so his placement on IR frees up a roster spot for minor-league recalls.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Out multiple weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening (upper body) will miss 2-4 weeks, according to coach Jeff Blashill, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.

Missing the minimum two weeks would allow Glendening to return Nov. 8 against the Bruins, but he'll likely be out longer than that. He has two goals and an assist through 10 games while skating in a bottom-six role.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Slated to miss additional action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Blashill indicated after Wednesday's game against the Senators that Glendening (upper body) will miss some time, though more information should surface Friday.

Glendening and the Red Wings return home for a trio of matchups beginning Friday against the Sabres, though it sounds as though he could be in danger of missing some, if not all of them. Christoffer Ehn is the only forward currently on the active roster that didn't play Wednesday, potentially positioning him to enter the lineup Friday.

Red Wings' Luke Glendening: Won't return Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glendening suffered an upper-body injury during Wednesday's game against the Senators and won't rejoin the action.

Glendening logged just 6:39 of ice time before his exit, posting a shot on goal and a minus-1 goal differential during the contest. The Wings will be forced to finish this one out with just 11 forwards, with Christoffer Ehn potentially available to take Glendening's place in the lineup if his absence extends beyond Wednesday.
