Description: Justin Abdelkader gave Detroit all the offense it needed Sunday in a 3-0 win over St. Louis.
Insight: Abdelkader finished the regular season in style by poking home two of the Red Wings' three goals on Sunday. The outburst ended an 18-game scoring drought for the 27-year-old.
 
3/30/2014 5:56:00 AM
Description: Red Wings left wing Justin Abdelkader (leg laceration) returned to the lineup Sunday.
Insight: Abdelkader missed two weeks due to his injury. He came into Sunday's game with eight goals and 16 assists this season. The Red Wings made Todd Bertuzzi a healthy scratch to get Abdelkader back in the lineup.
 
3/18/2014 5:33:00 PM
Description: Red Wings left wing Justin Abdelkader will miss two weeks with a leg laceration, according to Chris Johnston of sportsnet.ca.
Insight: Abdelkader has eight goals, 16 assists, 29 PIM and 133 SOG in 62 games, so fantasy owners can easily replace him.
 
1/1/2014 5:48:00 PM
Description: Red Wings left wing Justin Abdelkader has scored a goal in two straight games.
Insight: Abdelkader also has seven PIM and four SOG in the last two contests. However, the 26-year-old only has 15 points in 37 games this season. He can be left on the free agent wire in most leagues.
 
12/17/2013 12:25:00 PM
Description: Red Wings left wing Justin Abdelkader is expected to miss about one week due to a concussion and the protocol to return.
Insight: Abdelkader has 13 points in 34 games which is a bit disappointing for fantasy owners who expected more.
 
12/15/2013 10:15:00 AM
Description: Red Wings left wing Justin Abdelkader will miss Sunday's game against Tampa Bay due to a head injury.
Insight: Abdelkader probably has a concussion which makes any timetable for his return unknown. He has 13 points in 34 games.
 
10/2/2013 10:21:00 AM
Description: Red Wings left wing Justin Abdelkader is probable for Wednesday's game with Buffalo. He's been dealing with a lacerated left hand.
Insight: Abdelkader "won the lottery" and will start on the Red Wings' top unit alongside Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg. His statistics should jump dramatically if he stays with them all season.
 
9/13/2013 12:04:00 PM
Description: Red Wings left wing Justin Abdelkader was seen skating alongside Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk in Thursday's intrasquad scrimmage, according to a Detroit News report.
Insight: If the trio stays together, Abdelkader could be a nice late-round option.
 
5/5/2013 8:14:00 PM
Description: Red Wings left wing Justin Abdelkader has been handed a two-game suspension for his hit on Anaheim forward Toni Lydman Saturday night in Game 3. SOURCE: Ansar Khan, MLive.com
Insight: The Ducks have a chance to eliminate Detroit in Game 5 so it's possible that Abdelkader has played his final game of the season. Danny Cleary is expected to replace Abdelkader on the first line Monday in Game 4.
 
3/17/2013 9:54:00 AM
Description: Detroit left wing Justin Abdelkader scored twice Saturday in a 5-2 win over Vancouver.
Insight: Abdelkader (three goals, one assist in 29 games) has had a quiet season thus far and we wouldn't expect many games like this going forward. It's worth noting that the Red Wings have done extremely well against the Canucks this season, averaging 6.5 goals per game in their two meetings in 2013.
 
4/2/2011 7:09:00 PM
Description: Justin Abdelkader scored two goals with a +2 in the Red Wings' 4-3 overtime win over Nashville on Saturday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: Nashville scored the first three goals of the game before Detroit scored four unanswered goals. Abdelkader has seven goals this season and had not scored a point in his previous eight games, so he probably isn't being given a lot of fantasy consideration.
 
9/13/2010 8:01:00 PM
Description: Justin Abdelkader took boxing lessons in the offseason.
Insight: Facing a battle for the fourth line center position, Abdelkader took boxing lessons over the summer to learn how to handle himself in defensive battles. The preparation won't hurt his chances of making the team, but it won't translate into fantasy value either. (RapidDraft.com)
 
8/23/2010 7:19:00 PM
Description: The Detroit Red Wings have re-signed forward Justin Abdelkader to a two-year contract. TSN
Insight: Abdelkader scored six points in 50 games for the Red Wings last season, although he finished third on the Wings with 152 hits. He will be hard-pressed to earn a role on one of the scoring lines for the Wings again this season.
