Djoos registered a power-play assist Saturday in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.
Djoos returned from a 12-game absence and made a splash in Detroit's season finale. The Swedish defenseman performed well offensively when given the chance, as Djoos supplied two goals and nine assists in 36 games, though his campaign was interrupted by COVID-19 protocols and several instances of being a healthy scratch. Djoos will be a restricted free agent this summer.
Djoos produced an assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Predators.
Djoos had the secondary helper on Adam Erne's third-period goal. The 26-year-old Djoos has collected four helpers in his last six games. He sometimes exits the lineup if the Red Wings only deploy six defensemen. For the season, the Swede has notched 10 points, 36 shots on net and a minus-8 rating through 33 appearances.
Djoos managed an assist Sunday in a 4-1 win over the Blue Jackets.
Djoos simply dumped the puck off to Darren Helm in his own end, but the originating sequence culminated in an Evgeny Svechnikov tally to open the scoring in the contest. Djoos doesn't play enough to warrant fantasy consideration in season-long leagues, but he does have three goals and two assists through eight contests to make for an interesting streaming option in DFS formats.
Djoos notched a power-play assist in Thursday's 7-1 loss to the Predators.
Djoos set up Bobby Ryan's tally in the first period, which was all the Red Wings could muster against Juuse Saros. The 26-year-old Djoos was back in the lineup after sitting two games as a healthy scratch. He could see more playing time going forward since Marc Staal (upper body) couldn't finish Thursday's game. Djoos has seven points, 31 shots on net, 21 blocked shots and a minus-9 rating in 28 contests.
Djoos missed the past two games as a healthy scratch.
The Red Wings were shut out at home against the Stars last Saturday, and it was the same outcome facing the Predators in Nashville on Tuesday when the Original Six club played seven defensemen. Perhaps Djoos -- who has two goals and four assists through 27 games -- would have made a difference from an offensive standpoint, but then again, he was only averaging 9:04 of ice time in two games leading up to his pair of absences from the lineup. Check his status ahead of Thursday's grudge match with the Preds.
Djoos registered a power-play assist Tuesday in a 4-1 loss to the Blue Jackets.
The Red Wings orchestrated a nice tic-tac-toe passing sequence that started with forward Bobby Ryan synching up with Djoos, who quickly fed goal-scorer Anthony Mantha once Mantha slid over to the point. Djoos is up to two goals and four assists -- albeit with a minus-8 rating -- through 21 contests.
DJoos scored a power-play goal on his only shot and provided two hits in Saturday's 5-3 win over Chicago.
Djoos walked in from the point and buried a wrister from the slot to give the Red Wings a 3-1 lead late in the middle stanza. It was the second goal of the year for the 26-year-old and his first career power-play tally. The first-year Red Wing has chipped in with five points in 19 games.
Djoos scored a goal on his only shot and was plus-2 in Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Blackhawks.
Djoos' first goal as a Red Wing was a lovely one. The 26-year-old weaved his way in from the point and sniped a shot from the slot to knot the game at 2-2 with 14:11 left in regulation. It was just the sixth career goal in 132 NHL games for Djoos, whose previous stops included Washington and Anaheim.
Djoos managed to pick up an assist Wednesday in a 5-1 loss to the Lightning.
While Djoos is planted in a third-pairing role, the Swedish defenseman has averaged 3:25 of ice time on the man advantage. His latest helper was a 5-on-5 assist to Anthony Mantha, but as long as he's sharing the ice with these marquee forwards, there is sneaky deep-league value with Djoos.
Djoos (COVID-19 protocols) joined the Red Wings for practice Tuesday.
Djoos has been absent due to the NHL's COVID-19 protocols since he was claimed by Detroit on Jan. 9, but he's evidently cleared them and can now begin getting up to speed with his new team. It's safe to assume he won't play Tuesday against Columbus, but he could make his Red Wings debut as soon as Friday against Chicago.
Djoos (COVID-19 protocols) will emerge from quarantine Tuesday, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill relayed this update on Djoos, adding that the next step for the defenseman is to get him practicing again. This effectively rules him out for Monday's game against the Blue Jackets, but we suspect he isn't too far from a return.
Djoos is unavailable due to the league's COVID-19 protocols.
Djoos was listed as a non-roster player for Thursday's game against the Hurricanes, so this news clarified his absence. The defenseman won't join the team for practice or travel until he's fully cleared.
Djoos was designated as a non-roster player by the Red Wings on Tuesday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
The Wings claimed Djoos off the waiver wire Saturday at the expense of the Ducks organization. There are some rumblings that the defenseman may be in quarantine prior to joining his new team, though we are still waiting for official word on that being the case. Darren Helm (undisclosed) and Jared McIsaac (shoulder) were also placed on non-roster IR by Detroit to start the season.
The Red Wings claimed Djoos off waivers Saturday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Djoos has plenty of NHL experience, having appeared in 121 top-level games over the past three campaigns, so he should, at a minimum, be able to find a spot on the Red Wings' taxi squad. That being said, he likely won't have a regular NHL role in 2020-21, so virtual managers won't need to keep tabs on the 26-year-old blueliner.
Djoos was placed on waivers Friday, James Mirtle of The Athletic reports.
Djoos only appeared in 11 NHL games last year, recording three points and 12 blocked shots. All three of his points came after he joined the Ducks via a trade with the Capitals. While he's on waivers, there's a decent chance the 26-year-old blueliner sticks around on the taxi squad. If not, he'll be near the top of the list as an injury replacement.
Djoos signed a one-year extension with the Ducks on Wednesday.
Djoos only saw a brief run with the Ducks prior to the league suspending play, but he compiled three points (two goals, one assist) and 12 blocked shots over that span, convincing the team to keep him around for at least one more campaign. The deal is a one-way contract, so Djoos should have a good shot to stick around at the top level in 2020-21.
Djoos notched a power-play assist in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Senators.
All three of Djoos' points this year have come in the last five games. His helper Tuesday was also his first career power-play point. Djoos has seen a lot of playing time as the Ducks' blue line has dealt with a plethora of injuries, but the 25-year-old Swede likely won't produce enough to interest fantasy owners.
Djoos potted a goal on three shots in Sunday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Wild.
Djoos skated a team-high 24:17 in the contest, and his goal at 18:18 of the third period assured the Ducks of one point in the standings. It's his first goal and second point in nine games this season -- Djoos has only just started to get major playing time after he was traded from the Capitals at the deadline. He's unlikely to be of interest to fantasy owners given his low output across the board.
Djoos recorded an assist and two shots on net across 23:49 in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Blackhawks.
Djoos was stuck in Washington's minor-league system when the Ducks acquired him via trade Feb. 24, and he's immediately had a major role on Anaheim's blue line due to a flurry of injuries. He's averaged 22:41 over the last two games along with consistent power-play time. These responsibilities may be short-lived, however, as Erik Gudbranson (upper body) and Hampus Lindholm (lower body) may return soon.
Djoos is on the Ducks' roster and is expected to play against the Oilers on Tuesday.
The Ducks acquired Djoos from the Capitals for Daniel Sprong on Monday, and the former will start out with the big club. Djoos has played just two NHL games this year, and the Swede will likely start out in the bottom pairing.
