Red Wings' Evgeny Svechnikov: Signs one-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Wings' Evgeny Svechnikov: Returned to minor-league affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Wings' Evgeny Svechnikov: Brought up to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Wings' Evgeny Svechnikov: Drops to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Wings' Evgeny Svechnikov: Called up to Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Wings' Evgeny Svechnikov: Will start season in AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Wings' Evgeny Svechnikov: Looking forward to Opening Night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Wings' Evgeny Svechnikov: Continues to skate in injury rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Wings' Evgeny Svechnikov: Tentatively set for mid-March return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Svechnikov (knee) is targeting a return in mid-March, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

Svechnikov reportedly has been on the ice skating in solo sessions, which is a clear sign of progress as the prospect works his way back from a devastating ACL injury that required surgery. Perhaps Svechnikov will get a chance to suit up for the Red Wings toward the end of the season, as the team has long odds of making it to the playoffs, and at that point, it's free reign in terms of getting a closer look at the club's future.

Red Wings' Evgeny Svechnikov: Out 5-6 months for ACL repair
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Svechnikov underwent surgery for ACL reconstruction and will miss 5-to-6 months of action.

This is a huge blow to a Red Wings franchise that remains winless on the season. Svechnikov is a talented power forward who'd been hoping to claim a full-time role at the top level. He's only played in 14 NHL games to date, adding two goals and just as many helpers over that span.

Red Wings' Evgeny Svechnikov: Dealing with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Svechnikov (undisclosed) was placed on non-roster injured reserve Monday.

Svechnikov got hurt in Detroit's finale preseason game, and apparently it was bad enough to get him put on IR. It was unlikely the 21-year-old was going to make the roster out of camp, and when he's healthy the odds are that he will be doing his rehabbing at AHL Grand Rapids.

Red Wings' Evgeny Svechnikov: Leaves practice early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Svechnikov was "banged up" in Saturday's home win over the Maple Leafs, which explains his early departure from Sunday's morning session, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

The burgeoning power forward picked up a power-play assist over 14:23 of ice time in the preseason finale, which culminated in a 5-1 victory at Little Caesar's Arena. Svechnikov is on the roster bubble, but if his injury lingers, the Wings could have him resume hockey activities with AHL Grand Rapids.

Red Wings' Evgeni Svechnikov: Proving to be super clutch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Svechnikov executed the game-winning goal Saturday in a 4-3 overtime home win over the Bruins.

Svechnikov has game-winning goals in back-to-back preseason games. His brother, Andrei, is a big-time prospect for the Hurricanes, but Evgeny is three years his superior and highly skilled in his own right. The power forward only produced seven goals and 16 assists over 57 games with AHL Grand Rapids last season, but he didn't look completely out of place at the top level, notching four points through 14 contests, despite only averaging 8:49 of ice time.

Red Wings' Evgeni Svechnikov: Fed perfectly for first preseason tally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Svechnikov found the back of the net Thursday in a 4-2 preseason home win over the Blackhawks.

Givani Smith managed to evade multiple defenders and then delivered a slick pass to fellow winger prospect Svechnikov, who had a wide-open look at the net. The 6-foot-3, 212-pound Russian is gradually seeing more opportunities with the parent club. So far, he's produced two goals and two assists through 16 games spread out over the past two seasons.

Red Wings' Evgeni Svechnikov: Returned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Svechnikov was reassigned to AHL Grand Rapids on Wednesday.

Svechnikov got off to a slow start with the Red Wings, owning just one goal and no assists over his first 11 career games. He seemed to be piecing things together lately, however, tallying a goal and two assists over the last three contests. Detroit likely demoted its 21-year-old prospect to assist the team's AHL affiliate as it makes a playoff push.

Red Wings' Evgeni Svechnikov: Picks up goal, assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Svechnikov scored a goal and added an assist in a 6-3 win over the Sabres on Thursday.

The Russian's goal came with an empty net, but nobody involved is going to complain about the 21-year-old rookie adding to his point total. The 19th-overall pick in 2015 has played limited fourth-line minutes, so his fantasy potential isn't great at the moment. However, Svechnikov now has a multi-point game to his name, which is an accomplishment nobody can take away from him.

Red Wings' Evgeni Svechnikov: Highly touted prospect gets on board
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Svechnikov scored his first career goal Tuesday in a 5-4 shootout win over the Flyers.

The Russian prospect only skated for 8:38 in this one, yet he managed four shots on goal. However, with the Wings on the verge of being mathematically eliminated from playoff contention, Svechnikov could see a spike in playing time over the nine games remaining on the regular-season docket. He was Detroit's 19th overall draft choice in 2015, so fantasy owners needing help at forward should be taking note.

Red Wings' Evgeni Svechnikov: Moves up to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Svechnikov will be recalled from AHL Grand Rapids on Thursday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

With Frans Nielsen having been ruled out of at least the next two games, Svechnikov joins the Wings to provide some reinforcement at forward. Svechnikov is a skilled, big-bodied wing who recorded 20 goals and 51 points for Grand Rapids in his first season as a pro in 2016-17, but he's scored just seven goals and 22 points in 52 AHL contests this campaign. It remains to be seen what role the young Russian will fill for Detroit, but if given a look in the top-six group of forwards, he could be an intriguing option for fantasy lineups.

Red Wings' Evgeni Svechnikov: Struggling at AHL level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

One of the reasons the Red Wings traded Tomas Tatar to Vegas on Monday was to give Svechnikov a better chance of cracking the Detroit roster next season, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

It's not a surprise considering many expected Svechnikov to spend the majority of this season in Detroit. Instead, his production at the AHL level has dried up. The big Russian has just seven goals and 21 points in 49 contests for Grand Rapids. Svechnikov had 20 goals and 51 points a season ago for the Griffins, so he is clearly capable of producing at the professional level. He will need to finish strong if he hopes of having any chance of beginning the 2018-19 season at the NHL level.

Red Wings' Evgeni Svechnikov: Set for AHL season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Svechnikov (neck) is ready to make his season debut with the AHL's Griffins on Friday, Pete Wallner of MLive.com reports.

Nabbed with a 2015 first-round (19th overall) draft selection, Svechnikov is regarded as a can't-miss forward prospect within the Red Wings' system. His neck injury foiled his chances to compete for a spot on the Opening Night roster with the parent club, so he'll look to continue tearing up the minor league after dropping 51 points (20 goals, 31 assists) in 74 regular-season games before helping Grand Rapids to its second Calder Cup last season.
