Luke Glendening practiced with Pavel Datsyuk and Tomas Tatar during Saturday's practice.

Glendening isn't an offensive player but coach Mike Babcock likes what he could bring. "No, I'm putting Glennie there for sure," Babcock said. "Cause I want someone to do some work ... be at the net, be a second guy to play down low. We're going to give Glennie an opportunity to do that." The 25-year-old has eight goals and 12 points in 63 games this season. He will get a short-term fantasy boost from playing on the top line.

Luke Glendening scored on a whirling-backhanded far-post goal with just 75 seconds left in the third period, giving the Red Wings the 3-2 win over the Sharks on Thursday night.

It was a truly great individual effort, and also one that Antti Niemi nor Joe Thornton should not receive a lot of blame over. Glendening positioned himself beside the right side of the crease as Gustav Nyqvist came around, took the pass as he spun off Jumbo's stick-check, and hit the far corner. Catching Niemi playing the wrong percentages. Glendening now has eight goals and a dozen points on the season.

Luke Glendening scored his seventh goal of the season in Thursday's 3-0 win over Colorado.

Feb 6 - 1:30 AM

Luke Glendening potted a pair of goals in Tuesday's 5-4 win over Florida.

Luke Glendening scored a goal and an assist in Detroit's 4-1 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday.

Glendening opened the scoring in the first period and collected an assist on Tomas Tatar's second period goal. The goal was Glendening's second of the season and his first in 14 games. The 25-year-old won't have too many of these games, so you can keep ignoring him in standard fantasy leagues.

Luke Glendening scored the only Detroit goal in Tuesday's 2-1 preseason loss to the Blackhawks.

Glendening offers little in the way of fantasy juice despite the fact he'll be a regular lineup fixture for the Red Wings. Danny DeKeyser and Jakub Kindl drew helpers on the lone Red Wings goal. In the crease, Jonas Gustavsson started and played the first two periods of the game before he was replaced by Petr Mrzek for the third frame an overtime.
