Martin Frk (groin) has skated for three straight days.

That's a great sign, but keep in mind that Frk's return isn't imminent. The goal is for him to practice on Monday, so at the least he should be expected to miss Friday and Saturday's contests.

Scott Wilson suffered a lower-body injury Wednesday night against Edmonton.

Wilson exited the match after he blocked a shot. There was no update on his status following the contest.
Nov 23 - 9:20 AM

Tomas Tatar scored a goal in Wednesday's 6-2 loss to Edmonton.

Tatar has two goals and one assist during a three-game point streak. He has registered three of his six markers in the last seven outings.

Niklas Kronwall has found the back of the net in two straight games.

Kronwall got his first goal of the year Sunday against Colorado and he scored again Wednesday night versus Edmonton. The veteran defender registered only two goals and 13 points in 57 appearances last year. Kronwall has five points in 19 games, but he isn't worth rostering in the majority of fantasy leagues at this time.

Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill called out Anthony Mantha after Wednesday's 6-2 loss to Edmonton.

"Anthony Mantha has got to be way better. Way better. It's not OK to just be a passenger when you are given the opportunity to be an impact player," said Blashill. "He's not alone, but certainly he is a guy who — I said to him at the beginning of the year, 'for us to be great, you've got to be great.' He's gone through large stretches of being great, but he hasn't been great the last two games." He was disappointed with other players, but he is clearly looking for more from Mantha, who leads the team with 10 goals and has 19 points in 22 games.

Jimmy Howard allowed four goals for the second straight game in a 6-2 loss to the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday.

Howard let by four goals on 37 shots Sunday against Colorado, and he wasn't much better Wednesday. He allowed four goals on 19 shots before being pulled in favour of Petr Mrazek early in the second period. Howard now has a record of 8-6-2 with a 2.50 goals-against-average and a .923 save percentage.

Justin Abdelkader picked up two assists in a 6-2 loss to the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday.

Jonathan Ericsson is regarded as a game-time decision on Wednesday.

Ericsson apparently is dealing with a tweaked muscle that stemmed from picking up his kid. He has a goal and four points in 21 games this season.
Nov 22 - 12:11 PM

Jimmy Howard will start Wednesday night against Edmonton.

Howard allowed four goals on 37 shots to Colorado on Sunday in an overtime defeat. Petr Mrazek blanked the Oilers on Nov. 5, but he hasn't played since Nov. 9 when he faced Calgary. Howard has been superb for the Red Wings in 2017-18 with a 2.34 GAA and a .928 save percentage.
Nov 22 - 9:10 AM

Martin Frk (groin) isn't expected to play Wednesday night versus Edmonton.

Frk didn't take part in Tuesday's skate and could be out until next week. He hasn't played since Nov. 11 because of a groin injury.
Nov 22 - 9:03 AM

Dylan Larkin earned an assist in a 4-3 overtime loss to Colorado on Sunday.

Larkin already has more helpers (16) after 21 games than he had in 80 matches last season when he picked up a total of 15. He leads the Red Wings in scoring with 20 points this campaign. Larkin also has two goals and three assists during a three-game point streak. He should easily establish new highs in helpers and points in 2017-18 if he continues at his current pace.
Nov 20 - 10:18 AM

Justin Abdelkader potted his fourth goal of the season in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to Colorado.

Abdelkader opened the scoring in the contest. He has been quietly productive this season with 13 points in 20 games. Abdelkader has also provided two goals and five helpers in his last six appearances.
Nov 20 - 10:11 AM

Danny DeKeyser returned from a 17-game absence Sunday because of a fractured ankle.

DeKeyser had two penalty minutes, one hit, one block and a minus-1 rating in 16:23 of ice time in a 4-3 OT loss to Colorado. He has much more value to the Red Wings as a top-four blueliner than he does in fantasy hockey. DeKeyser is better to leave on the waiver wire in most fantasy leagues.
