Detroit Red Wings

Witkowski was suspended for 10 games for his part in Wednesday’s brawl.

Witkowski was sent off of the ice following a fight with Brett Kulak but came back off of the bench after some words were exchanged and Matthew Tkachuk “speared” him in the back of the leg and a brawl broke out. Witkowski has been in and out of the Red Wings lineup this season anyways, so this is not a big loss for the team and he carries zero fantasy appeal.

Witkowski will replace Mark Barberio in the lineup tonight vs. Vancouver. Witkowski is a physical blue liner who will help replace some of the physicality the Lightning are lacking since losing Radko Gudas. He has six points (1G / 5A) in 36 games with Syracuse this season.
