Jakub Vrana News
St. Louis Blues left wing Jakub Vrana hit two goals, including the game-winner, in Tuesday's entertaining 6-5 overtime victory against Vancouver. He made it 3-2 in the second period and popped up with the decisive goal just 28 seconds into the extra frame. Vrana now has eight goals through his first 12 outings for St. Louis. He's had a very difficult period in his career, but the 27-year-old has proven that he still has what it takes to be a very impactful player in the league. The Czech winger has also tallied two assists with his new team and now boasts 12 points in 17 games for the whole campaign.
The St. Louis Blues have acquired left wing Jakub Vrana from the Detroit Red Wings in exchange for forward Dylan McLaughlin and a seventh-round pick in the 2025 NHL Draft. Vrana is in the second season of a three-year contract he signed with the Red Wings in August of 2021 and can become an unrestricted free agent after next season. It is a low risk move for the Blues as the 27-year-old was formerly a 20-goal scorer in back-to-back seasons with the Capitals in the two seasons following their Stanley Cup win in 2018. Vrana will have a chance to bounce back on the Blues as he has shown his ability to contribute at the NHL level and the forward is worth adding in deeper formats and keeper leagues.
Detroit Red Wings left wing Jakub Vrana will replace Filip Zadina in the lineup Tuesday against Washington. This is going to be only the third game of the season for the former Capital and the first since Vrana had a stint in the NHL/NHLPA player assistance program. The 26-year-old was waived in January and he's been playing for Detroit's AHL affiliate since late December. Vrana has heated up lately in the minors with a run of four goals and four assists in six games. He's also a proven scorer on the NHL level, but fantasy managers shouldn't expect a lot from him on Tuesday, as Vrana will enter the lineup only as a fourth-liner.
Detroit Red Wings left wing Jakub Vrana cleared waivers on Wednesday after the team waived him on Tuesday. The 26-year-old has missed all but two games this season and entered the NHL/NHLPA's player assistance program on Oct. 19. He was reinstated on Dec. 16 and has been on a conditioning stint in the AHL, but it looks like he will now remain there for a while, with the team having assigned him to the minors after he cleared waivers. Various issues have limited Vrana to just 39 appearances for the Red Wings since he arrived from Washington in April 2021. It appears that he doesn't have a future in Motown anymore, although Vrana still has a year remaining on his contract. It won't be easy to move him either, with Vrana having a 5,250,000 cap hit, and it's pretty telling that teams passed on him when Vrana was available for free.
