Trevor Daley suffered an upper-body injury in Wednesday's game against the Calgary Flames.

The Red Wings have already confirmed that he won't be returning to the lineup. They'll likely provide an update on his status in the coming days.

Trevor Daley has averaged a team-high 23:07 of ice time per game through Detroit's first two matches of 2017-18.

"He's done a great job," coach Jeff Blashill said. "He's a good, puck-moving, solid defenseman that helps you get out of your end. He's got good moxie to him. He's been around lots of situations. He is confident. He's got poise under pressure – game gets tied, he doesn't panic. And he gives us another guy that can play minutes." Unfortunately, he hasn't contributed much for fantasy teams yet with no points, one hit, no blocks, two shots and four penalty minutes.

Look for Trevor Daley to pair with Danny DeKeyser when the Red Wings break camp in October.

Daley will also get a look at the point on the second power-play unit and we think it is reasonable he could top the 19 points he registered in 56 games with the Penguins last season. Draft him as a 25-30 point rearguard and you likely won't be disappointed.
Jul 2 - 9:27 AM

The Red Wings have signed Trevor Daley to a three-year contract for an average of $3.178 million per season.

This is a good landing spot for Daley as he will likely get significant power-play ice time with the Wings who needed to bolster their point play with the man advantage. There is a reasonable expectation that Daley will top the 19 points in 56 games he had with the Penguins, in Detroit.

The Boston Bruins are believed to be one of the teams that will pursue Trevor Daley should he become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

Daley has often struggled in terms of Corsi/Fenwick, but he's still a top-four defenseman capable of recording 30 or so points if he stays healthy for a full season. The veteran has also won back-to-back Stanley Cup championships with Pittsburgh, so that experience will naturally be of value to any other team he goes to. The Detroit Red Wings are also believed to be a major contender for Daley.

Unlike a lot of players on the Pittsburgh Penguins, Trevor Daley will be playing in his first Stanley Cup Final game on Monday.

Daley won the Stanley Cup with the Penguins in 2016, but he couldn't actually play in the final series due to a broken ankle. "It feels like we were just here. To get back here this soon is pretty cool," said Daley. "It sucks to watch. I don’t know how you guys do it." The defenseman has averaged 19:31 minutes per contest so far in the Penguins' 2017 playoff run. He has a goal and three points in 15 contests.

Trevor Daley thought he opened the scoring in Game 6 against Ottawa, but the goal was disallowed after it was challenged by the Senators for goaltender interference.

"I thought he was squirming in the net," Daley said of Ottawa goalie Craig Anderson. "I don't think I really pushed him in. I thought he was back in there already." There has been a great deal of confusion and controversy during the playoffs regarding goaltender interference plays.
