Ehn did not receive a qualifying offer from the Red Wings and will become a UFA on Friday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Ehn has appeared in 114 NHL games over two seasons with the Red Wings, but the Swede has a mere 13 points in that span. The 24-year-old forward may have to settle for a minor-league contract, as he hasn't produced consistently at the NHL level.
Ehn scored a goal on his only shot of the game in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to Carolina.
Ehn re-directed a Madison Bowey feed with 4:34 left in the second period to tie the game at 2-2. It was Ehn's first tally since Dec. 10. A role player whose value lies in his penalty-killing abilities, Ehn has just two goals and two assists in 54 games and is minus-22.
Ehn registered an assist Sunday in a 3-1 win over the Bruins.
With less than 30 seconds remaining in the contest, Ehn caromed the puck off the boards and past a defender to find Andreas Athanasiou all alone for an empty-net tally. You certainly won't see anyone mistaking Ehn for a fantasy darling, as the penalty-killing specialist has chipped in only three points through 44 games.
Ehn only has one point (a goal) through 29 games this season.
Ehn is occasionally rendered a healthy scratch, though he's been seeing the ice more often of late. The Swede remains a penalty-killing specialist, and the Wings are using him in the defensive zone for 59.3 percent of his shifts at even strength.
Ehn scored a goal and had four shots in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Jets.
Ehn potted his first goal of the season, scoring the Red Wings' lone goal of the night at 7:39 of the second period. The 23-year-old had entered the night without a single point, and with only nine shots on goal, through his first 22 games of 2019-20.
Ehn was recalled from AHL Grand Rapids on Wednesday.
Ehn is back up with the big club after logging 14 games for the Wings earlier in the year. In those appearances, the center failed to register a point and added a mere seven shots, 21 hits and six blocks. Whether Ehn gets into the game versus Columbus on Thursday will depend on the health of Darren Helm (lower body) who was injured in Tuesday's clash with Ottawa.
Ehn was assigned to AHL Grand Rapids prior to Saturday night's contest in San Jose.
Ehn is pointless in 14 games this season, so perhaps a demotion to the minors will get him going and help Ehn find his game. As of now, the 23-year-old is not deserving of fantasy consideration, even in deeper leagues.
Ehn is one of six Red Wings still searching for his first point of the 2019-20 campaign.
Between the arrival of Valtteri Filppula and a relatively quick start from Jacob De La Rose, Ehn is seeing the press box more than usual. He's a strong penalty killer, but he won't be on fantasy rosters as a spare forward playing for a team that ranks dead last in scoring at 2.20 goals per game.
Ehn returned to the lineup against the Flames on Thursday, two days after sitting out as a healthy scratch.
Ehn was one of Detroit's best defenders up front as a rookie last year, but he's still searching for his first point this campaign, with a minus-4 rating not helping matters. Adam Erne's upper-body injury cleared the path for Ehn to reenter the lineup against Calgary.
Ehn is projected to start the 2019-20 season with the Red Wings, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Ehn's inclusion on the Opening Night roster this past season proved that offense isn't everything for NHL teams. The fourth-line, penalty-killing specialist only mustered three goals and six assists through 60 NHL contests, but he's capable of playing on the wing or at center, and his shutdown abilities as a forward gives him a leg up on the internal competition.
Ehn was demoted to AHL Grand Rapids on Sunday.
Ehn had just nine points in 60 games with Detroit this season and will head to the minors to get some extra work in. The 23-year-old forward will be back with the big club during next year's training camp.
Ehn scored a shorthanded goal in Monday's 3-2 victory over the Sharks.
Ehn's tally came in the third period, and it proved pivotal as goals by Evander Kane and Tomas Hertl brought the Sharks within one. Ehn has generated three goals and six assists with 40 shots in 54 games. The defensively responsible forward also has 63 hits.
Ehn was called up from AHL Grand Rapids on Thursday, Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News reports.
Ehn has a chance to play in the evening's game against the Rangers since the Red Wings are saying that Dylan Larkin (back) will be a no-go. The rookie is oriented with the defensive component of the game, as illustrated by the fact that only 36.6 percent of his 5-on-5 shifts have taken place in the attacking zone.
Ehn, who was an emergency call up before Saturday's game against the Coyotes, has been reassigned to AHL Grand Rapids.
Ehn was recalled because Anthony Mantha was feeling ill, and the Wings were unsure if he would be able to play. Mantha suited up, though, and now Ehn is back off to the minors.
Ehn was called up from AHL Grand Rapids on an emergency basis Saturday.
Anthony Mantha is dealing with an illness, thus necessitating Ehn's call-up to the NHL. While Ehn isn't a winger like Mantha, playing down the middle instead, the Wings will likely shuffle the lines among the entire forward group while stationing Ehn in his usual penalty-killing role. The Swede has two goals and five assists through 44 games as a rookie.
Ehn will be reassigned to AHL Grand Rapids on Friday, according to Red Wings head coach Jeff Blashill.
Ehn was bumped down to the minors to pave the way for depth goalie Harri Sateri. The Wings can always pull Ehn back to the parent club once Jimmy Howard overcomes his illness and the team sends Sateri back to the AHL's Griffins.
Ehn picked up an assist, four hits and a blocked shot in Saturday's 6-5 overtime loss to the Flyers.
While not a household name, Ehn is playing with a lot of heart and determination in his first NHL season. He is plus-2 on a team with a minus-29 goal differential, and his checking role enables him to primarily focus on disrupting the offensive flow created by the opposition. Still, there is probably very little fantasy interest in Ehn since he has averaged under 10 minutes of ice time (9:48) and requires maximum efficiency in order to sneak his way onto the scoresheet.
Ehn, a rookie, has started a whopping 63.4 percent of his 5-on-5 shifts in the defensive zone.
Ehn's heavy defensive role severely limits his fantasy prospects, as does the fact that he's only averaging 9:34 of ice time. Still, the Swedish skater earned the right to open the season with the Red Wings, and he's gaining valuable experience on the penalty kill for a proud franchise that wants to be taken seriously despite its poor record of 18-25-7.
Ehn recorded his first career NHL goal in Sunday's 5-4 overtime road loss to the Maple Leafs.
Detroit scored three unanswered goals in an all-rookie barrage, with Ehn going top shelf after he mowed down defenseman Travis Dermott in the neutral zone. The Red Wings appreciate Ehn's penalty-killing acumen, but it's understandable that very few people are keying in on the Swede in fantasy leagues since he's averaging less than 10 minutes of ice time per contest.
Ehn set up defenseman Dennis Cholowski's short-side tally in Monday's 3-1 home win over the Kings.
The Kings had three skaters committed to Ehn as he weaved out of the neutral zone on an odd-man rush, and that caused the visitors to lose sight of Cholowski, who accepted Ehn's pass and went top shelf over the shoulder of Jonathan Quick. Best known as a solid line defender, Ehn only has two points through 16 games, so he can safely be ignored in all fantasy hockey formats.
