Center

Detroit Red Wings

The Red Wings signed Luke Glendening to a four-year extension worth $7.2 million ($1.8M AAV).

Glendening, 27, is coming off of the best offensive year of his brief career, having picked up 21 points (8G / 13A) in 81 games. He has only missed one game over the last two years and led Red Wings forwards in face-off percentage and shorthanded time on ice last season. It appears Glendening will be the Red Wings’ fourth line centre for the next five seasons.

Glendening (undisclosed) missed Monday’s practice but is expected to be ready for Game 1.

The Red Wings utilized Glendening in a shutdown role vs. the Lightning last year. He will be called upon to do the same this year, so his availability for Wednesday’s game will be important to the Red Wings’ success. He averaged 14:35 TOI in the regular season and averaged 15:31 TOI in the seven game series last year.

The Red WIngs have reassigned Luke Glendening to Grand Rapids.

Glendening play 9:46 and 10:06 in two contests during his most recent call-up. He did not record a point and was a minus-1. This move likely suggests Tomas Tatar will play after it appeared he was set to be a healthy scratch tonight. It also means that Johan Franzen shifts to centre on the second line and Darren Helm drops down to his regular spot centring the third line.
