Tommy Wingels could be on the move before Monday's trade deadline.
With the Blackhawks out of the playoff picture, they'll likely move older assets on expiring contracts. Wingels is a depth player that can kill penalties and provide a contending team with some added experience. The 29-year-old has seven goals and 12 points in 54 games. He's scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. Feb 21 - 9:37 AM

Tommy Wingels picked up a power-play goal to open the scoring in Tuesday's 5-2 loss at Vegas.

Wingels snapped a 14-game point drought with the marker, and it was his first time lighting the lamp since Dec. 17. He rattled off four goals in five games in a stretch from Dec. 8-17, so perhaps he is ready to go on a scoring binge after his lengthy drought. He'll try to do it again Thursday against the visiting Anaheim Ducks.

Tommy Wingels will be a healthy scratch in Wednesday's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Tommy Wingels has four goals in his last five games after he picked up a shorthanded marker on Sunday night.

Tommy Wingels found the back of the net in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Nashville.

Tommy Wingels scored a goal and registered an assist in Chicago's 4-2 win against Arizona on Saturday.

Prior to that contest, Wingels had bene fairly quiet offensively in 2017-18 with an assist in six games. He's not going to be much of an offensive threat overall and we don't recommend owning him in standard fantasy leagues.

The Chicago Blackhawks have scratched Tommy Wingels for opening night against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Joining Wingels will be Jordan Oesterle and Cody Franson. Wingels picked up 12 points in 73 games with both the Senators and Sharks. He is a depth forward with no fantasy upside.

Tommy Wingels jumped at the chance to join the Chicago Blackhawks and he is looking forward to contributing in a leadership capacity in 2017-18.

Wingels feels he can help the players coming up to fill spots on the third and fourth lines because it can be tougher for them to relate to the star players on the team. He is excited to be playing closer to home and he will bring some "sandpaper" to the lineup, while helping out on the penalty kill.

Tommy Wingels feels he would play through his fractured foot had the injury occurred during the season.

As recently reported, Wingels sustained the injury during his summer training. "I was doing some jumps and awkwardly rolled my ankle. It's just a little break there," Wingels explained. It's expected to take six-to-eight weeks to heal, so he should be fully recovered for training camp.

Tommy Wingels fractured his foot during his summer training.

Wingels should recover in six-to-eight weeks, so he's expected to be fine for training camp. It's just unfortunate because it looks like he will be healing for pretty much the rest of the summer, so perhaps that will have an impact on how he trains.

Tommy Wingels believes he brings to the table something that the Chicago Blackhawks lacked during their first round exit in the 2017 playoffs.

"I'm a guy who is expected to bring energy, bring a compete level, play a straight-line game and get into the dirty areas," Wingels said. "More important is getting to that hard area in the blue paint; that's where goals are mostly scored. Watching how the team fared in the playoffs, that's a piece that was missing." Chicago inked Wingels to a one-year contract on July 1. He's a solid bottom-six forward and his presence is all the more valuable now that Marcus Kruger has been dealt to Vegas (and then in turn traded to Carolina). Wingels probably isn't going to do a whole lot offensively though, which makes him an unappealing option in standard fantasy leagues.

The Blackhawks have signed Tommy Wingels to a one-year contract.

Wingels can be a useful third or fourth-line player with the Hawks after registering 12 points in 73 games between Ottawa and San Jose. At least he has some speed. For fantasy purposes, we would pass on Wingels.

Tommy Wingels can become an unrestricted free agent in July.

It isn't clear yet if he will be back with the Senators. Wingels suited up in 36 games with Ottawa after he played in 37 matches with the San Jose Sharks in 2016-17.

Tommy Wingels will be a healthy scratch in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final against Pittsburgh on Thursday.

Wingels was on the ice for the pre-game warmup, but he didn't skate on any one of the lines during rushes. He has no points in nine games during the postseason. Chris Kelly will take his spot in the lineup. Jyrki Jokipakka, Chris Neil, Chris DiDomenico and Ben Harpur will also serve as healthy scratches.

Tommy Wingels will spend Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final in the press box.

Wingels appeared in Ottawa's previous two contests, but with Viktor Stalberg (undisclosed) ready to return, someone had to be taken out to make room. Wingels has no points in seven postseason games this year.
