Svechnikov was promoted to the Red Wings' active roster Thursday.
Svechnikov is expected to skate on Detroit's third line and second power-play unit Thursday against the Hurricanes. He's picked up two goals and three points in three games this campaign.
Svechnikov was sent to the taxi squad Wednesday, per CapFriendly.
He has three points in as many games since he first entered the lineup. Svechnikov will likely be back on the active roster for Thursday's game against the Hurricanes. That contest could see him face his brother, Andrei Svechnikov, for the first time at the NHL level.
Svechnikov was promoted to the active roster Tuesday.
Svechnikov posted a goal and an assist in his season debut Saturday, and he kept the momentum rolling with another goal in Sunday's loss to the Blackhawks. The 24-year-old is expected to stay in the lineup for Tuesday's game versus the Blue Jackets as he continues to make a case to stay with the big club.
Svechnikov was designated for the taxi squad Monday.
Svechnikov was called up from the AHL on Feb. 16, and he finally made his season debut Saturday. The 24-year-old notched a goal and an assist in Saturday's win, and he followed up that effort with another goal in Sunday's loss to the Blackhawks. With a strong showing thus far, the Red Wings can't afford to keep Svechnikov out of the lineup, so expect him to be back on the active roster for Tuesday's matchup versus the Blue Jackets.
Svechnikov scored a power-play goal on three shots in Sunday's 7-2 loss to the Blackhawks.
Svechnikov has only played in two games this year, but he has already earned three points. The 24-year-old winger is making a strong case to stick in the Red Wings' lineup going forward. Svechnikov only had four points in 20 NHL appearances prior to this season, but the first-round pick from 2015 seems to have made some progress with his play.
Svechnikov picked up a goal and an assist with three shots in a 5-3 win over Chicago on Saturday.
The 24-year-old, who was promoted from the taxi squad prior to the game, scored his first NHL goal since 2018 when he knocked home a third-period rebound for the eventual game-winner. He also assisted on Frans Nielsen's goal later in the frame. Drafted 19th overall by Detroit in 2015, Svechnikov has just two goals and two assists in 20 career games.
Svechnikov was promoted to the active roster ahead of Saturday's game versus the Blackhawks.
Svechnikov could make his season debut for the Red Wings. The No. 19 pick in 2015, Svechnikov has played just 20 NHL games in his career, recording two goals and two assists. If he plays, he'll likely be eased into a bottom-six role.
Svechnikov was recalled from AHL Grand Rapids to the taxi squad Tuesday.
Svechnikov has struggled with injuries in his career, but he's healthy now and will look to battle for a job with the big club. The 2015 first-round pick (19th overall) has generated two points through the first three AHL games this year after providing 25 points over 51 minor-league contests last season.
Svechnikov was waived by the Red Wings on Monday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
The oft-injured winger was able to overcome a minor arm injury in time for practice Monday, but now he's destined for either the taxi squad or AHL Grand Rapids in the likely event that he clears waivers. Svechnikov has appeared in 20 NHL contests since debuting in 2016, though his litany of injuries has made him long in the tooth as far as prospects are concerned.
Svechnikov (arm) was back on the ice for Monday's practice session, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Svechnikov suffered his arm injury during a scrimmage Tuesday but appears to be good to go moving forward. The time off won't improve the winger's chances of making the Opening Night lineup versus the Hurricanes on Thursday, though he should at a minimum factor into the taxi squad.
Svechnikov sustained an arm injury in Tuesday's intrasquad scrimmage, Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News reports.
Unless the injury is relatively minor, this could be a significant blow for Svechnikov, who is no doubt eager to secure a spot on the 23-man roster for Opening Night. In his limited NHL outings, the 24-year-old winger garnered two goals on 26 shots, two assists and 10 PIM while averaging 9:09 of ice time in 20 outings.
Svechnikov is well aware that he is facing an uphill battle to win a roster spot out of training camp for the Red Wings, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. "I know it's a lot of pressure and (media) are going to ask about it," Svechnikov said. "I want to make this team and want to make the team better. I'm ready mentally, physically, and through all the adversity I went through, I'm even better with that."
Detroit's 19th overall draft pick in 2015, Svechnikov is hoping that the sixth time is a charm in training camp. The 24-year-old has faced quite a bit of adversity in his young career, including major knee surgery, so the brawny power forward will need to stand out in camp among a throng of evergreen prospects to finally claim the job in the NHL. The silver lining for Svechnikov is that he has a decent amount of experience in the minors, but he must make the big leap forward.
Svechnikov signed a one-year contract extension with the Red Wings on Sunday.
Svechnikov had 11 goals and 25 points with AHL Grand Rapids in 2019-20 after missing all of the previous season with a knee injury. The first-round pick from 2015 has yet to stick at the NHL level, with just four points in 20 career games with the big club. He'll likely spend most of 2020-21 in the minors.
The Red Wings reassigned Svechnikov to AHL Grand Rapids on Tuesday.
Svechnikov didn't do much during his brief stay with the big club, going scoreless while averaging just 8:19 of ice time in four appearances. Detroit clearly doesn't think that the 2015 first-round pick is ready to be a full-time NHLer, so fantasy owners shouldn't expect Svechnikov to make a significant impact with the Wings before next season.
The Red Wings recalled Svechnikov from AHL Grand Rapids on Tuesday.
Svechnikov has enjoyed a blistering start to the campaign in the minors, racking up one goal and four points in three games with Grand Rapids. The 2015 first-round pick will likely make his season debut with the big club sometime this week.
The Red Wings assigned Svechnikov to AHL Grand Rapids on Tuesday.
Svechnikov didn't draw into a game in this NHL stint, and he'll head back to the minors to continue his development since Frans Nielsen (undisclosed) is back to full strength. The Red Wings hope Svechnikov -- their 2015 first-round pick (19th overall -- can bounce back from last year's torn ACL and remain a valued member of the team's young corps.
Svechnikov was recalled from AHL Grand Rapids on Monday.
Svechnikov missed all of last season with a torn ACL but came back strong with a three-point performance in his AHL season debut. Selected 19th overall in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, the 22-year-old Russian has two goals and four points in 16 career NHL contests. If he cracks the lineup, except Svechnikov to skate in a middle-six role.
Svechnikov (knee) was among Detroit's latest group of players demoted to the AHL, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Svechnikov will likely be a candidate for an early call-up once he shows himself to be healthy after missing all of last season due to a knee injury. The Red Wings don't want to overwork the 2015 first-rounder right off the bat, but expect to see Svechnikov with the club before too long barring any setbacks.
Svechnikov (knee) continues to work on his recovery but answered "Oh yeah, for sure. Absolutely. I'm ready," when asked if he would be healthy for Opening Night against Nashville on Oct. 5, Max Bultman of The Athletic reports.
Svechnikov lost the entire 2018-19 campaign due to his knee injury. Any lingering issues during training camp could hurt the winger's chances of avoiding a stint in the minors, especially following the acquisition of Adam Erne. If he can earn his spot, Svechnikov figures to start in a bottom-six role, but could even challenge for a larger role throughout the year.
Svechnikov (knee) was able to skate Wednesday morning, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.
Ansar Khan of MLive.com relayed from the Svechnikov on Jan. 9 that he hopes to return from ACL surgery in mid-March, though the Russian being on the ice for solo skating is not exactly a new development in his recovery. Undoubtedly, the 22-year-old will need to prove that he can withstand contact and draw into multiple practices before getting the green light to return. The silver lining behind Detroit being out of the playoff race is that it will have a chance to expedite the development of its prospects by giving them ice time at the highest level without so much concern about the outcome of the game itself, though being competitive is the Original Six club's No. 1 priority.
