While Pulkkinen and Jurco continue to tease and disappoint offensively, Smith at least provides a modicum of fantasy value. Through 63 games this season he's posted 15 points with 62 PIMs and 94 hits. Not great, not bad either.

Teemu Pulkkinen and Tomas Jurco will each be scratched against the Flyers on Tuesday.

Across 78 combined games played this season, the pair of young wingers have posted just 10 goals on 108 shots. Not a bad shooting percentage, sure, but not a high enough shot rate let alone success rate.

Teemu Pulkkinen will draw in for the sick Pavel Datsyuk in Sunday's match with Chicago

Pulkkinen hasn't played in nearly two weeks, now. And considering he's still stuck on six goals and 12 points, his fantasy viability is quickly fading. But keep an eye on him anyway, his best asset is his shooting ability after all.

Teemu Pulkkinen and Brendan Smith will be scratched once again Wednesday night when the Blackhawks visit Detroit

Pukkinen with his third straight scratch, continuing the trend of sitting in the press box after returning from a shoulder injury. He's scored six goals and 12 points in 32 games after a stellar 2014-15 season in the AHL (46-34-27-61). Tonight will mark Smith's third straight scratch, the longest stretch of healthy scratches this season.

Teemu Pulkkinen and Brendan Smith will be healthy scratches in Monday's game against the Dallas Stars.

The Red Wings didn't do a whole lot before Monday's trade deadline, so their lineup will pretty much stay the same between now and the playoffs. Pulkkinen has shown the ability to put the puck in the net, but he doesn't do it consistently enough to merit being picked up in standard fantasy leagues.

Teemu Pulkkinen will be scratched from Saturday's match with the Avalanche.

With just six goals and 12 points through 32 games this season, it would appear that Pulkkinen is not quite up ready to be a regular just yet.

It's official, Teemus Pulkkinen will tag in for Dylan Larkin on Saturday.

Adjust your rosters accordingly. Pulkinnen has six goals and 12 points in 29 games this season, with 10.9 shooting percentage to boot.
Feb 20 - 6:47 PM

Coach Jeff Blashill has made it known, that if Dylan Larkin is too sick to play Saturday then Teemu Pulkkinen will play in his place.

Pulkinnen has but six goals and 12 points in 29 games this season, but that 10.9 shooting percentage is quite tempting given his production at the AHL level. He posted 65 goals in 117 games the last two seasons with Grand Rapids.
