Look for Tomas Tatar to play on one of the Red Wings' top two lines this season.
He skated alongside Pavel Datsyuk and Darren Helm to open camp and has a fan in Detroit coach Mike Babcock. "He has an infectious personality, he's got a skill set, he gets open, he makes plays, he's a good player," Babcock said. "We know Pav and (Henrik Zetterberg) are good players. We need more guys that are high-end players. You need high-end players." It must be nice for Tatar to hear he is one of them. Look for him to improve on his 39-point effort of 2013-14.

The Red Wings gave Tomas Tatar a lucrative contract extension earlier this summer, and are expecting the 23 year-old to be a regular 20-goal scorer in return.

The energetic Slovakian filled the role of a second-line scorer in his first full season in the NHL. He won a spot on the Slovakian Olympic team, and later notched eight points in seven games for his country at the World Championships. Tatar earned his salary raise, but must build off his 39 point rookie season while most likely receiving less ice-time as a result of a fully healthy Red Wings roster.

Tomas Tatar's newly signed three-year deal with Detroit is reportedly worth $8.25 million.

In other words, Tatar will come with a cap hit of $2.75 million. That seems like a good deal for Detroit as Tatar should be able to build off of his 39-point rookie campaign. The Red Wings have been preparing their next generation of forwards to slowly take over from the previous generation and while Tatar probably won't ever be one of the Red Wings' top players, he is still a valuable piece of the puzzle.

Tomas Tatar has agreed to a three-year contract extension with the Detroit Red Wings.

The financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed by the Red Wings. After a few strong campaigns in the minors, Tatar firmly established himself with Detroit last season with 19 goals and 39 points in 73 contests. We don't see the 23-year-old as a future star, but he does have some untapped offensive upside and we anticipate him setting new career-highs in 2014-15.

Tomas Tatar netted a pair of goals to help Slovakia earn a 4-3 victory against Denmark on Tuesday.

He produced four goals and eight points in seven games at the tournament, but Slovakia won't advance to the quarterfinal round so his off-season will officially begin now.

A couple of Detroit players hit the scoresheet at the IIHF Hockey World Championships in Belarus on Friday.

Tomas Tatar registered an assist in Slovakia's 3-2 loss to the Czech Republic, while Danny DeKeyser registered an assist in the U.S.'s 6-1 win over Belarus. We know this doesn't mean much from a fantasy perspective, but it is nice to know if your players are doing well in a Championship tournament overseas nonetheless.

Tomas Tatar has already committed to playing for Slovakia at the World Hockey Championships.

He didn't have a point for the Red Wings in the playoffs, but registered 19 goals and 39 points in 73 contests during the regular season. Tatar represented Slovakia at the Sochi Olympics as well, where he had a goal and an assist in four outings.

Apr 3 - 9:54 AM

Tomas Tatar led the way for Detroit Thursday, but it wasn't enough to hold off the Canadiens in a 5-4 loss.

Tomas Tatar had an assist and fired home the shootout winner for the Red Wings in their 2-1 victory over Edmonton on Friday night.

The 23 year-old snapped a five game pointless drought, and has points in just two games out of his last 11. Tatar has 27 points through 57 games this season.
Mar 14 - 11:05 PM

Tomas Tatar wants the NHL to participate in the 2018 Winter Games in South Korea.

"I don't think the Olympics would be the same (without NHL players)," he said. "You want the Olympics to have the best athletes. I know for owners and (general) managers the injuries aren't the best (news). But it's just part of hockey. The injuries can happen here, too." He played for Slovakia in Sochi and he generated two points in four matches.
Feb 24 - 12:00 PM

Tomas Tatar netted Slovakia's only goal in a 7-1 loss to the United States on Thursday.

Feb 13 - 10:11 AM

Detroit Red Wings forward Tomas Tatar generated one goal and one assist in a 5-4 shootout loss to the Florida Panthers on Sunday.

The 23-year-old has been streaky lately. He has three points in his last three games, went three games without a point from Jan. 12-20 and had another three-game streak (3G, 1A) before that. He's an interesting player to watch but probably not worth the investment right now.
Jan 26 - 8:22 PM

Tomas Tatar will be in Detroit's lineup Saturday night against Los Angeles.

He had traveled back to Slovakia for his father's funeral and missed Thursday night's game. Although he may be a bit tired and drained, Tatar's return is a welcome sight for the Wings who have not scored a goal in two games. Activate Tatar if you need him.
