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. Oct 22 - 9:40 AM

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.
Oct 5 - 8:12 PM

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.
Jul 5 - 4:12 AM

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.
Jul 1 - 2:52 PM

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.
May 30 - 11:18 AM

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.
May 17 - 8:07 PM

Coach Guy Boucher announced that Tommy Wingels and Ryan Dzingel will play in Game 1 against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

They will be taking the places of Chris Neil and Viktor Stalberg (undisclosed). With Chris Neil barely seeing the ice against the Rangers in Game 6, the Sens were essentially down two forwards when Stalberg was injured. Guy Boucher will need to use all of his lines if he wants to combat the depth of the defending Stanley Cup champions and can't afford to keep Neil on the bench in case the Penguins take a few runs at Karlsson.

Tommy Wingels is expected to be a healthy scratch in Game 6 against the New York Rangers on Tuesday night.

Wingels skated during the pre-game warmup, but he didn't take part in any line rushes. This would be his third straight game as a healthy scratch. He has no points in five games during the postseason. Ryan Dzingel, Chris Kelly, Ben Harpur, Colin White, Jyrki Jokipakka and Chris DiDomenico are also expected to watch from the press box.
May 9 - 7:17 PM

Tommy Wingels, Colin White, Chris Neil and Chris DiDomenico are each projected to be scratched for Game 5 against the Bruins on Friday.

Of the group, only Wingels has seen any action this postseason. He skated 9:43 during his one game, but did not register a point with three shots on net.
Apr 21 - 6:36 PM

Tommy Wingels will be a healthy scratch in Game 4 against Boston in their first round playoff series.

Wingels dressed in Game 1 of the playoffs, skating for a pointless 9:43, offering three shots on goal. This will mark scratches in Games 2 and 3. Joining him in the press box will be defensemen Jyrki Jokipakka and Fredrik Claesson and forwards Chris Kelly and Colin White.

Tommy Wingels is expected to be a healthy scratch in Game 3 against Boston on Monday.

Wingels will sit for the second consecutive game. The veteran played sparingly in the first game of the series (9:43 of ice time) and didn't contribute very much. He could get back into the lineup at some point, but he doesn't offer much in terms of fantasy value either way. Chris Kelly, Jyrki Jokipakka, Fredrik Claesson, Colin White and Matt O'Connor will also be scratched in Game 3.
