Red Wings' Valtteri Filppula: Stays productive against Columbus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Filppula scored a goal on three shots in Saturday's 5-4 overtime loss to Columbus.

Filppula, who led all Detroit forwards with 20:38 of ice time, stuffed home a loose puck in the blue paint to square the game at 4-4 with 3:42 left in regulation. It gave the 37-year-old four points over the last two games versus the Blue Jackets, including Friday's three-assist performance. The veteran center has six goals and 15 points in 38 games on the year.

Red Wings' Valtteri Filppula: Three helpers against Jackets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Filppula picked up three assists in Friday's 5-2 win over the Blue Jackets.

He had a hand in Detroit's final three tallies, including Jakub Vrana's game-winner. Filppula snapped a six-game point drought with the performance, and on the season the veteran has five goals and 14 points through 37 contests.

Red Wings' Valtteri Filppula: Nets goal in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Filppula scored a goal in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Stars.

Filppula got the Red Wings on the board at 4:51 of the second period, capitalizing on a pass from Jakub Vrana. The 37-year-old Filppula has just 11 points, 16 shots on net, 12 PIM and a minus-3 rating through 30 contests this year.

Red Wings' Valtteri Filppula: Two-point effort in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Filppula notched two assists in Monday's 3-1 win over the Hurricanes.

All the scoring in the game came in the third period, and Filppula had a hand in Detroit's first and last goals of the evening. The veteran has looked revitalized since returning to the lineup from the taxi squad, scoring two goals and five points in the last five games.

Red Wings' Valtteri Filppula: Lights lamp in second stanza
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Filppula scored a goal on two shots and added one hit in Saturday's 5-4 shootout win over Carolina.

Filppula stayed with a loose puck in front and got credit for the goal as the last Red Wing to touch it after it caromed off the skate of Carolina's Jordan Staal and into the net. The goal tied the game at 3-3 with just under four minutes left in the second period. The 36-year-old Filppula hasn't been much of an offensive factor since returning to Detroit prior to the 2019-20 season, but he does have five points (two goals, three assists) over his last seven contests.

Red Wings' Valtteri Filppula: Brushes twine in huge win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Filppula scored on his only shot in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Lightning.

The goal must have been extra sweet for Filppula, as he converted against one of his former teams. A third-line winger, Filppula sat out 14 straight games before his promotion to the active roster Saturday.

Red Wings' Valtteri Filppula: In lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Filppula was promoted to the active roster Saturday.

Filppula will enter the lineup for Saturday's road game against the Lightning, marking his first appearance with the big club since Feb. 28. The 37-year-old has posted five points and 10 PIM through 20 games this season.

Red Wings' Valtteri Filppula: Role severely diminished
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Filppula hasn't played at all for the Red Wings in March.

The Finn was waived March 3 and the Wings sent him to the taxi squad six days later. He's seemingly fallen out of favor to the benefit of Michael Rasmussen, an up-and-coming pivot who possesses greater power-play utility. Filppula could reemerge if injuries get in the way, but for now, he can be left alone in any format.

Red Wings' Valtteri Filppula: Assigned to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Filppula was assigned to Detroit's taxi squad Tuesday.

Filppula will likely get another look on the active roster before long, but he'll head to the taxi squad for now. He's notched five points through 20 games this campaign.

Red Wings' Valtteri Filppula: Hits waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Filppula was waived by Detroit on Wednesday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.

Filppula has been a regular in the lineup this season, so he may remain on the Red Wings' active roster if he passes through waivers unclaimed. He's tallied five points in 20 games this campaign.

Red Wings' Valtteri Filppula: First multi-point game of 2020-21
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Filppula assisted on a pair of goals and added two hits in Saturday's 5-3 win over Chicago. He also went 10-for-16 (62.5 percent) in the faceoff circle.

The 36-year-old helped set up third-period tallies by Evgeny Svechnikov and Frans Nielsen to put the game away for the Red Wings. It was Filppula's first multi-point performance of the season, and he's managed just nine shots on goal through 19 games.

Red Wings' Valtteri Filppula: Opponent helps on goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Filppula scored in Friday's 7-2 loss to the Panthers.

Not everything went Florida's way in this one. On Filppula's tally, he swept the puck toward the cage, and Panthers forward Anthony Duclair put enough lumber on the shot to watch it fly into his own goal. Filppula has just two goals and an assist through 15 games this season.

Red Wings' Valtteri Filppula: Finally nabs first point of year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Filppula scored a goal on his only shot and was plus-2 in a 7-3 loss to the Stars on Thursday.

After eight games without a point, Filppula finally found the scoresheet with a rebound goal midway through the second period. The 36-year-old had been completely quiet offensively prior to that goal, having registered a mere three shots on goal all season.

Red Wings' Valtteri Filppula: Numbers a bit deceiving
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Filppula has struggled to a minus-42 rating through 70 games with the Red Wings this season.

Only Andreas Athanasiou, whom the Red Wings traded to the Oilers at the deadline, has a worse rating than Filppula based on his minus-46 mark. However, while it's clear that the second-line center is routinely getting burned in transition, recent performances consisting of three and four blocked shots apiece prove that Filppula is not a total slouch defensively. Offensively, the Finn has six goals and 15 helpers on the year.

Red Wings' Valtteri Filppula: Scores lone goal in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Filppula scored his sixth goal of the season in a 4-1 loss to New Jersey on Tuesday.

The veteran's power-play marker in the third period spoiled Cory Schneider's shutout bid, but it was the only goal Detroit scored Tuesday. Filppula, with 21 points in 64 games, remains a fringe fantasy asset and is only relevant in deeper formats.

Red Wings' Valtteri Filppula: Dishes in thriller
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Filppula registered an assist Tuesday in a 4-3 win over the Canadiens.

Detroit committed three minor penalties, so it wasn't a major surprise to see Filppula -- a shorthanded specialist -- on the ice a bit longer than usual. The soon-to-be 36-year-old saw 18:01 of ice time, with his third-period apple helping the Wings overcome a 3-1 deficit to the delight of the home crowd. Filppula now has five goals and 15 helpers through 61 games this season.

Red Wings' Valtteri Filppula: Forgettable night in milestone game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Filppula, who was playing in his 1,000th NHL contest, came up empty on his lone shot in a 1-0 loss to the Rangers on Saturday.

The Red Wings couldn't solve Henrik Lundqvist, as the legendary backstop worked his first shutout in two seasons. Filppula snapped a two-game point streak with the lackluster effort. His next chance to get back on track will arrive Monday when the Wings play host to the Flyers.

Red Wings' Valtteri Filppula: Sneaks in helper despite loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Filppula registered a secondary assist on the power play in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Wild.

Filppula snapped a six-game point drought with his first-period feed, resulting in a goal for rookie phenom Filip Zadina. The former is deployed on the man advantage and penalty kill, though Filppula has just four special teams points through 50 games this season.

Red Wings' Valtteri Filppula: Held off scoresheet in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Filppula (lower body) went minus-2 with a blocked shot in 18:57 during Monday's 6-3 loss to the Avalanche.

Filppula didn't end up missing time after sustaining a minor lower-body injury Saturday versus the Panthers. He was pressed into more playing time when Frans Nielsen left Monday's contest with an upper-body issue. Filppula should continue to see top-six minutes going forward, but with 15 points in 49 outings, the Finn isn't likely to make much of an impact for fantasy owners.

Red Wings' Valtteri Filppula: Gearing up Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Filppula (lower body) will play in Monday's game versus the Avalanche, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.

Filppula was a game-time call and took warmups to test out the injury, and he's been deemed good to go. The 35-year-year-old will center the second line, and he'll look to build on the 15 points he's accrued through 48 games.
