  • Red Wings' Thomas Vanek: Implied scratch for finale

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/6/19) Vanek (abdomen) isn't in the projected lineup for the season finale versus the Sabres on Saturday, Dave Hogg of NHL.com reports.

    Vanek was arguably the most impressive foward for the Red Wings in the first half of the 2016-17 campaign, but the team dynamic naturally changed over the duration of his three subsequent career stops between Florida, Vancouver and Columbus. His reunion tour with the Wings included 16 goals and 20 assists, but he worked against a minus-12 rating and did little to earn the trust of fantasy owners outside of a few hot streaks.

    Red Wings' Thomas Vanek: Slated to sit Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/4/19) Vanek (abdomen) is projected to sit out again Thursday against the Penguins.

    Considering Vanek's status is iffy, at best, for the remainder of the campaign, it shouldn't come as a shock that he will skip another contest. With only one game remaining on the schedule after Thursday, it's looking highly likely he will finish 2018-19 with 36 points in 64 games. He would enter the offseason as an unrestricted free agent.

    Red Wings' Thomas Vanek: Out Tuesday, season status in doubt

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/2/19) Vanek (abdomen) will not return to action Tuesday and is a question mark the rest of the way, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.

    Vanek's issue is one of pain tolerance, making it unclear exactly whether or not he will be able to retake the ice. If he can't, the veteran blueliner will end his 2018-19 campaign with 36 points (16 goals and 20 assists) over 64 games. On just a one-year contract, there's no guarantee he will be back in Detroit next season.

    Red Wings' Thomas Vanek: Effectively ruled out Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/29/19) Vanek (abdomen) is "assumed out" when the Red Wings play the Bruins on Sunday, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    The Wings have won six of the past 10 games to prove that they're not buying into the 'lose for (Jack) Hughes' mantra -- referring to the 17-year-old American prospect who is projected to be the No. 1 selection in the 2019 draft. Still, Vanek won't be rushed back with the team mathematically eliminated from playoff contention, and perhaps the soonest he'll return is Tuesday's home game against the Penguins.

    Red Wings' Thomas Vanek: Will miss more time

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/27/19) Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said Vanek (abdomen) will miss at least the next couple games, Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News reports.

    Detroit only has six games remaining in the 2018-19 season, and Vanek's enigmatic ways probably had him confined to deep leagues in the first place. The Austrian's produced 16 goals and 20 assists through 64 games this season, which represents a 20-point dip compared to his Columbus-Vancouver service-time split in 2017-18.
