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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Glendening provided the go-ahead goal and an assist in Saturday's 5-3, season-opening win over the Predators.
Glendening flipped the biscuit off Juuse Saros' mask to give the Wings a 4-3 lead in the third period, and he was the primary distributor on Tyler Bertuzzi's empty-net dagger.

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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
