Michael Rasmussen News
Detroit Red Wings forward Michael Rasmussen (knee) is likely finished for the 2022-23 campaign, according to head coach Derek Lalonde. He took a shot off his kneecap last weekend against Tampa Bay and has already missed two games because of the injury. The 23-year-old has been enjoying a decent campaign with 10 goals and 29 points in 56 games. With Rasmussen out of commission, Joe Veleno should see more action for the rest of the way, while Tyler Bertuzzi's move to Boston also opens up some minutes for other Red Wings forwards.
Detroit Red Wings forward Michael Rasmussen suffered a lower-body injury against Tampa Bay Saturday. He logged only 2:13 of ice time and had to exit the game after blocking a shot with his left knee area. Rasmussen is now doubtful for Monday's game against Ottawa. The 23-year-old has worked on the second line lately, and he's done a decent job throughout the season, getting 10 goals and 29 points in 56 games. He's been a workhorse without the puck as well, sitting fourth on the team with 119 hits. Jakub Vrana was a healthy scratch on Saturday and will have a chance to re-enter the lineup if Rasmussen isn't healthy enough to play Monday.
Detroit Red Wings forward Michael Rasmussen had the game of his life Wednesday versus Tampa Bay, posting four points in a 7-4 victory. He scored twice and was also able to pick up a pair of assists in 18:00 of ice time. The 23-year-old is currently playing first-line minutes because Dylan Larkin is limited in the face-off circle due to a hand injury. With David Perron also on the line, Rasmussen has received a great opportunity to impress. The trio combined for 10 points in Wednesday's win. Having averaged only 14:28 of action for the season, Rasmussen has been able to get only 15 points across 30 appearances, but he has upped his production massively in a top-line role with five points in two games.
Detroit Red Wings forward Michael Rasmussen has received a two-game suspension from the NHL. He is getting punished for high-sticking Boston's David Krejci in Thursday's 5-1 loss. Krejci was forced to leave the game after Rasmussen hit him in the head with his stick. The Red Wings are losing a player who has been very effective in pretty limited minutes this season, with Rasmussen having notched five points while averaging only 13:45 of ice time. He will be eligible to return to action next Thursday against Washington. With Oskar Sundqvist (upper body) having picked up an injury this week, the Red Wings attack will look a lot different in the next couple of games and there could be some short-term options emerging for fantasy managers.
