Andreas Athanasiou (knee) has been activated from the injured reserve list.

Athanasiou has four goals and five points in 13 games this season. He last played on Nov. 10 and should be back on Friday.
Dec 8 - 3:10 PM

Alexey Marchenko (shoulder) will be a game-time decision on Friday.

Marchenko is expected to be available on Sunday even if he ends up missing Friday's contest. He last played on Nov. 20.
Dec 8 - 12:42 PM

Brian Lashoff is staying with the Red Wings for now.

He has played in the last two games instead of Ryan Sproul. Lashoff appeared in just 11 games with Detroit last season after he played in 75 contests in 2013-14.
Dec 8 - 8:04 AM

Andreas Athanasiou (knee) may be ready to take part in a full practice Thursday.

If he can do that then a return during Detroit's upcoming homestand is a possibility. Athanasiou has been sidelined since Nov. 10 because of a sprained knee.
Dec 8 - 8:00 AM

Frans Nielsen has accounted for seven points in the past seven games.

That includes a three-point performance against New Jersey back on Nov. 25, as it appears as though Nielsen is getting more comfortable with his new team. He has recorded six goals and 15 points in 27 games.
Dec 8 - 7:56 AM

Tomas Nosek has been demoted to the minors.

He hasn't played any games with the Red Wings this season after he appeared in six matches with the big club last year. Nosek had been serving as a healthy scratch lately, so he will get some playing time in the AHL.
Dec 7 - 11:46 AM

Jared Coreau has been assigned to the minors.

Jimmy Howard is ready to return from a groin injury, so Coreau has been sent back to Gand Rapids. Coreau allowed four goals on 36 shots to Pittsburgh in his NHL debut last Saturday.
Dec 7 - 11:43 AM

Jimmy Howard (groin) has been taken off injured reserve.

Howard is ready to return to the fold after suffering a groin injury on Nov. 25. Petr Mrazek has played well during his absence, so a battle for starts could be on the horizon.
Dec 7 - 11:37 AM

Henrik Zetterberg extended his point streak to five games Tuesday night.

He posted an assist on a goal by Tomas Tatar in Detroit's 4-3 shootout win over Winnipeg. Zetterberg also provided the game winner in the shootout. He has three goals and three assists during his scoring spree.
Dec 7 - 9:47 AM

Dylan Larkin finally reached double-digit points for the season with a helper during Tuesday's 4-3 shootout win over the Jets.

It hasn't quite been the sophomore follow-up the youngster was looking for, but he does have 10 points in 27 games now. With points in three of his last five, who knows, this could be the kickstart he needs.
Dec 7 - 1:36 AM

Thomas Vanek popped his first goal since Oct. 25th during Tuesday's 4-3 shootout win over the Jets.

Mark it eight games, and about six weeks, since his last goal. He's also riding a three-game point streak with points in four of his last five. At five goals and 13 points in 16 games thus far, we'd say the clock has been turned back.
Dec 7 - 1:35 AM

Anthony Mantha picked up the fourth goal of his season during Tuesday's 4-3 shootout win over the Jets.

Mantha now has six goals and 10 points in 22 career games. He has seven points in 12 games this season.
Dec 7 - 1:33 AM

Tomas Tatar now has four points over his last three games, including the goal he scored during Tuesday's 4-3 shootout win over Winnipeg.

The young veteran winger now has four goals and 11 points in 27 games thus far. Not quite the production hoped from him, unfortunately.
Dec 7 - 1:31 AM

Gustav Nyquist snapped his five-game point drought during Tuesday's 4-3 shootout win over Winnipeg.

He recorded an assist to give him 11 helpers and 15 points in 27 games this season. That is not quite the type of production that the Wings hoped from him.
Dec 7 - 1:30 AM

Petr Mrazek landed the Jets for a 4-3 shootout win on Tuesday.

He made 31 of 34 stops, including all eight asked of him while on the kill. He also turned away two of four during the shootout. Mrazek's record improves to 8-5-3 with a 2.84 GAA and a .908 save percentage.
