Hronek earned an assist Monday, but the Red Wings lost to the Blue Jackets, 3-2.
Hronek salvaged his fantasy hockey performance with less than a minute remaining in the third period; he earned his second assist of the young season and led all Red Wings defenseman in ice time (25:59) by a wide margin.
Hronek recorded an assist to complement a plus-2 rating en route to Saturday's 4-2 win over the Hurricanes.
Plenty of fantasy managers will shy away from the Red Wings after their tumultuous 2019-20 campaign consisting of a 17-49-5 record, but Hronek deserves attention in both DFS and season-long formats as a budding defenseman looking to build upon the 31 points that he recorded last season.
Hornek has been recalled from his loan with Mountfield HC of the Czech Extraliga, Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News reports.
Hronek lit it up during his time in the Czech Republic, racking up 10 goals and 23 points in 22 contests. The 23-year-old is expected to skate on Detroit's top pairing and first power-play unit this season, and he'll make for a solid depth option in most fantasy formats due to his offensive upside, particularly in those that don't count plus-minus rating.
Hronek will begin the 2020-21 campaign on loan in the Czech Republic with Mountfield HC.
Hronek registered nine goals and 22 helpers in 65 games with the Red Wings this season, in which he averaged 23:54 of ice time.

Hronek has fashioned nine goals and 22 assists through 65 games in 2019-20.
Only 19 blueliners across the league have more goals than Hronek, a second-year sensation from the Czech Republic.

Keep him in mind for future fantasy campaigns.
Hronek (head) will be in action versus Minnesota on Thursday.
Hronek returns following a four-game stint on the shelf due to his head injury. The Czech native will bump Jonathan Ericsson back to the press box, as Hronek figures to pair up with Madison Bowey.

Hronek (head) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Wild, Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News reports.
Hronek wore a no-contact sweater during Tuesday's practice, so he's nearing a return after more than a week on injured reserve. The 22-year-old blueliner maintains fantasy relevance with 29 points, 112 shots and 70 blocked shots over 59 games. If he can't play against the Wild, expect either Gustav Lindstrom (undisclosed) or Jonathan Ericsson to slot in.

The Red Wings placed Hronek (head) on injured reserve Thursday retroactive to Feb. 16.
Hronek was already expected to miss the next two games with the head injury, so his placement on IR creates a roster spot for the team.

As expected, Hronek (head) won't play Friday against the Islanders or Sunday against the Flames, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Hronek is evidently still feeling the effects of the puck he took to the head during Sunday's loss to Pittsburgh. The 22-year-old blueliner will be reevaluated ahead of Tuesday's matchup with New Jersey, but for now, Alex Biega will fill in on Detroit's top pairing.
Hronek (upper body) isn't expected to play Friday versus the Islanders or Sunday versus the Flames.
Nothing is written in stone, but Hronek is trending in the wrong direction heading into the weekend. The 22-year-old blueliner's next chance to enter the lineup will almost certainly be next Tuesday against the Devils. Madison Bowey is slated to fill in on the top defensive pairing again.
Hronek (upper body) won't play Tuesday against the Candiens.
Hronek is considered day-to-day, so there's a chance he'll only be forced to miss one game with his upper-body issue, as the Red Wings are off until Friday against the Islanders after Tuesday's contest. Another update on the 22-year-old blueliner's status should surface prior to that match.
Hronek won't return to Sunday's game versus the Penguins after taking a puck to the side of his head.
The exact nature of his injury wasn't revealed, but it's safe to assume Hronek is dealing with an upper-body issue.

His next opportunity to play will be Tuesday versus Montreal.
Hronek (undisclosed) will suit up for Saturday's matchup against Boston, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.
Hronek was still expected to dress after he missed practice Friday, so this news isn't surprising. The 22-year-old will be a nice boost to the lineup, as he's dished three assists in his past six games. Hronek seems to enjoy playing against Boston as well, as evidenced by his four points in four career games versus the Bruins.
Hronek (undisclosed) is expected to dress for Saturday's game against the Bruins despite missing practice Friday, though coach Jeff Blashill said he won't have confirmation until the day of the game, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.
The reason behind Hronek's unavailability for Friday's practice is unclear, but the blueliner will get a night to sleep it off before a final decision on his availability is made. Assuming he's available, look for Hronek to retain his spot in the top pairing and on the top power-play unit.
Hronek managed a secondary assist in Thursday's 4-3 shootout win over the Sabres.
Hronek is performing admirably in the attacking zone based on an output of nine goals and 18 assists through 53 games.
