  • Islanders' Matt Lorito: Inks deal with Islanders

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/2/18) Lorito signed a two-year deal with the Islanders on Monday, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.

    What's worth noting is that the deal is one-way in the second year, though the financial details aren't known at the moment. Lorito has been impressive at the AHL level with the Griffins the last two seasons, notching 45 total goals. However, he's also 27 already, and he turns 28 on July 3, so he's not exactly an up-and-coming prospect. Usually players with an NHL future have played more than two games above the minor-league level by this point in their careers.

    Red Wings' Matt Lorito: Gets waived by Detroit

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/1/17) Lorito was waived by the Red Wings on Sunday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

    The undrafted winger tore it up with AHL Grand Rapids last season, depositing 22 goals and 34 assists in 61 regular-season contests. He also left a mark in the 2017 Calder Cup playoffs, scoring seven times with three power-play setups over 19 appearances. However, since the 27-year-old has only drawn into two NHL games to date, it's highly unlikely that Lorito is arbitrarily going to be put in a fantasy-friendly situation.

    Red Wings' Matt Lorito: Lights lamp

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/20/17) Lorito found twine in Wednesday's 6-5 exhibition road loss to the Penguins.

    He's not expected to make the team, but Lorito managed 22 goals and 34 assists in 61 regular-season contests with AHL Grand Rapids last season. The diminutive flanker -- he's 5-foot-9, 170 pounds -- is a good one to have around in case injuries significantly threaten the parent club, but then again, he has just two NHL games under his belt at the age of 27. It's safe to pass over Lorito in most fantasy drafts.

    Red Wings' Matt Lorito: Sent back to minors

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/10/17) Lorito was demoted to AHL Grand Rapids on Monday.

    Lorito played with the Red Wings for each of the team's last two games, notching an assist during his NHL debut and adding in six shots on goal between the tilts. The 26-year-old posted another impressive season with AHL Grand Rapids this season and could be a contender to round out the Red Wings' 2017-18 roster with a strong camp next fall. For now, he will return to playoff-bound Grand Rapids for some additional action.

    Red Wings' Matt Lorito: Picks up assist in NHL debut

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/8/17) Lorito picked up an assist with a plus-1 rating in his NHL debut Saturday against the Canadiens.

    The undrafted rookie out of Brown University certainly looked like he belonged in his first game, although he was facing Montreal's 'B' team with several stars resting. Still, it was a very positive start for a guy who is likely to be fighting for a job in training camp next season.
