Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Signs three-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rasmussen signed a three-year, $4.38 million contract extension with the Red Wings on Thursday.

Rasmussen has drawn into 102 games with Detroit over the past three campaigns, picking up 11 goals, 30 points and 156 hits over that span. The ninth overall pick from the 2017 draft has plenty of upside, but it may be a few more seasons until his full offensive potential is realized at the NHL level.

Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Fills empty cage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rasmussen scored an empty-net goal and added three hits in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Blackhawks.

Rasmussen helped secure the Red Wings' win with his third-period tally. The 21-year-old reached the 10-point mark with his tally. He's added 39 shots on net, 51 hits and 22 PIM in 29 appearances this year. The first-round pick from 2017 should continue to log minutes in a middle-six role to get adjusted to the NHL level.

Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Two helpers Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rasmussen picked up two assists, one on the power play, in Monday's 3-1 win over the Hurricanes.

The 21-year-old hadn't found the scoresheet in his prior three games, but Rasmussen helped set up Detroit's first two goals early in the third period as the team broke open a scoreless tie. Rasmussen has two goals and five points in his last nine games, and the ninth overall pick in the 2017 draft figures to see an increased role down the stretch for the rebuilding Wings.

Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Helps Wings stun Bolts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rasmussen found the back of the net Sunday in a 6-1 win over the Lightning.

A perpetual taxi-squad shuffler, Rasmussen tracked down a loose puck at the doorstep and made good on his second goal of the season. There are no questions about Rasmussen's offensive ability, but he's trying to earn a stable role in the NHL, and fantasy managers need to be patient with him as he grows into the role.

Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Up to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rasmussen was promoted to the active roster Saturday.

Rasmussen went down to the taxi squad for the off-day, but he'll suit up for a 15th straight game. The 2017 ninth overall pick has accrued just three points through 14 games. He's slated to play in a top-six role against the Lightning on Saturday.

Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Dropped to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Makes first goal of season count
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rasmussen scored his first goal of the season in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

The 21-year-old crashed the net and banged the puck by Elvis Merzlikins early in the third period for what proved to be the winning goal. Rasmussen has struggled right along with the rest of the Wings this season and had only one assist in his prior 13 games, but the ninth overall pick in the 2017 draft is starting to learn how to use his size and physicality to make an impact.

Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Snags helper Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rasmussen recorded an assist and two PIM in Thursdays' 6-4 win over the Lightning.

Rasmussen set up Luke Glendening for a goal in the first minute of the second period. The 21-year-old Rasmussen has four helpers, 12 shots on net, eight PIM and 24 hits in 12 contests this year. The first-round pick from 2017 hasn't displayed enough consistency yet to earn trust in fantasy.

Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Returned to AHL affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Shuffled to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rasmussen was sent to AHL Grand Rapids on Monday.

Rasmussen dressed in the last eight games for Detroit, so this move is a bit surprising. It's unclear if he'll be back on the Red Wings' roster ahead of Wednesday's game in Tampa Bay, or if he'll get some action in the minors. Rasmussen has two points and a minus-2 rating this season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
