  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Nets two points in win

    Rasmussen scored a goal and an assist on four shots, fueling the Red Wings to a 3-2 overtime win over the Sharks on Tuesday.

    Rasmussen wristed a shot past James Reimer off a Sharks' turnover to give the Red Wings a 2-1 lead in the second period. He would also pick up a helper on Andrew Copp's overtime marker. Rasmussen seems to have heated up as of late as he posted five points in his last five games after going pointless for his first six games in January. On the season, Rasmussen has eight goals and 22 points in 44 games.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Adds another helper

    Rasmussen logged an assist, two shots on goal and four hits in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Coyotes.

    Rasmussen hasn't scored through eight games in January, but he's managed three assists across his last two outings. The 23-year-old saw a season-high 19:59 of ice time Tuesday -- he's bounced around the lineup a bit, but he's typically maintained at least a middle-six role. He's up to 20 points, 69 shots on net, 92 hits, 33 blocked shots, 29 PIM and a minus-5 rating through 41 contests.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Two helpers against Avs

    Rasmussen picked up two assists in Monday's 6-3 loss to the Avalanche.

    Both points came late in the game after the Red Wings has already fallen into a 5-0 hole. Rasmussen has flashed upside worthy of the ninth overall pick in the 2017 NHL Draft, but the 23-year-old still hasn't found much consistency with Detroit. He's been held off the scoresheet entirely in 14 of the last 20 games, managing four goals and 10 points over that stretch.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Caps three-goal surge

    Rasmussen scored a third-period tally during a 4-2 win over the visiting Senators on Saturday.

    Michael Rasmussen stole the puck from goalie Cam Talbot and scored into an empty net, marking the Red Wings' third, third-period tally during a key 1:55 stretch. The 23-year-old center continues to thrive on the first line, collecting seven points, including three goals, during his past five outings. Rasmussen contributed three hits and two shots in the win.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Records two helpers vs. Penguins

    Rasmussen contributed two assists in a 5-4 overtime win against Pittsburgh on Wednesday.

    Rasmussen got a helper on each of Detroit's final two goals, including the overtime winner. He has six goals and 17 points in 31 contests this season. The 23-year-old is on fire, providing two goals and seven points in his last three games.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Four points in top-line role

    Rasmussen scored two goals and dished out two assists in Wednesday's 7-4 win over the Lightning.

    Rasmussen knotted the score at 2-2 with 28 seconds remaining in the opening frame before helping out on Dylan Larkin's go-ahead goal in the second. In the third period, he assisted on Larkin's second goal of the game, then scored again into an empty net. The 6-foot-6 Swede has spent most of his career up to this point in a bottom-six center role, but with all of their injuries to top-six forwards, the Red Wings are currently deploying Rasmussen as a first-line winger. Rasmussen has capitalized on the opportunity with five points in his last two games and could be worth a look as long as this increased usage persists. His line with Larkin and David Perron combined for five goals and 10 points in this one.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Scores in Tuesday's victory

    Rasmussen scored a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Lightning.

    Rasmussen opened the scoring early in the second period, beating Andrei Vasilevskiy from the slot. The goal was Rasmussen's first since Nov. 23 snapping a five-game scoring drought. The 23-year-old center is up to four goals and six assists through 23 games. While he may not score at a high rate, Rasmussen plays a consistent, physical role in Detroit's middle-six.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Lends helper in win

    Rasmussen posted an assist and three hits in Thursday's 7-4 win over the Sharks.

    Rasmussen did the work down low before setting up Jake Walman's blast of a shot for the Red Wings' third goal. The helper gave Rasmussen points in consecutive contests for the second time this year. The 23-year-old center has two goals, six helpers, 20 shots on net, 42 hits, 18 blocked shots, 14 PIM and a minus-1 rating through 15 contests. He looks like a solid fit on the third line, though his fantasy usefulness likely remains limited to formats that reward his physicality.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Pots goal in overtime loss

    Rasmussen scored a goal on three shots, logged four hits and added two PIM in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Ducks.

    Rasmussen tallied late in the second period to give the Red Wings a 2-1 lead. This was the 23-year-old's second goal of the season, and it snapped his five-game point drought. He's up to seven points, 20 shots on net, 39 hits, 18 blocked shots, 14 PIM and a minus-4 rating in 14 contests. The big-bodied center should continue to work on the third line, though his physical play could earn him some interest in deeper formats.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Finishes serving suspension

    Rasmussen has finished serving his two-game suspension for high sticking Boston's David Krejci.

    Rasmussen will be eligible to return to the lineup Thursday against Washington. The Red Wings returned Givani Smith to the minors Tuesday to clear up a roster spot. Rasmussen has one goal, four assists, nine blocks and 19 hits in seven games this season.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Suspended for two games

    Rasmussen was suspended for two games by the NHL for high-sticking Boston's David Krejci on Thursday.

    Rasmussen received a minor penalty for high-sticking on the play while Krejci suffered an upper-body injury and will miss Boston's game against Columbus on Friday. The incident began with Rasmussen delivering a body check, but then Rasmussen turned back towards Krejci, which resulted in Rasmussen's stick hitting Krejci in the head. The NHL ruled that Rasmussen's use of the stick was reckless. Rasmussen will be eligible to return Thursday against Washington. He got off to a strong start with a goal and five points in seven contests despite averaging just 13:45 of ice time.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Hearing with Player Safety

    Rasmussen will have a hearing with NHL Player Safety on Friday regarding his high-sticking of Boston's David Krejci on Thursday.

    Rasmussen is expected to be suspended and received a minor penalty on the play. He has a goal and five points in seven games this season as the Red Wings' third-line center.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Secures helper in big win

    Rasmussen recorded an assist in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Ducks.

    Rasmussen looks invigorated to start the new campaign, as the 6-foot-6 power pivot has a goal and three assists through five games. Detroit's third line comprised of Rasmussen, rookie Elmer Soderblom and Oskar Sundqvist has been clicking early on with various opponents having trouble with their size and long reach; all three skaters hit the scoresheet Sunday.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Finds early season success

    Rasmussen scored a goal and drew two assists as the Red Wings opened the campaign with a 3-0 shutout of the Canadiens on Friday.

    Rasmussen, who opened last season with a prolonged scoring slump, had a hand in all three of the Red Wings' tallies Friday. The 2017 first-round draft pick scored just one goal through the opening 17 contests last season. Rasmussen, however, finished with three goals in the final four games and seeks to carry the momentum into 2022-23. He did Friday. The 23-year-old center earned an assist on rookie Elmer Soderblom's first career goal, scored into an empty net, and assisted on Olli Maatta's empty-netter.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Centering Vrana, Perron

    With Andrew Copp recovering from abdominal surgery, Rasmussen has been centering a line of Jakub Vrana and David Perron, reports Max Bultman of The Athletic.

    That's a great opportunity for Rasmussen. He had 15 goals and 27 points in 80 games last season, but he made strides toward the end of the campaign with seven goals in his final 16 contests. It remains to be seen how Rasmussen will be used long term though. Detroit coach Derek Lalonde would like to deploy Rasmussen as a center, but once Copp is healthy he might take over the center spot between Vrana and Perron. If that's the case, Rasmussen would then either drop in the depth chart or shift to the wing. Still, as long as Copp is unavailable, Rasmussen has a chance to prove he's a good fit for that line.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Strong finish to campaign

    Rasmussen produced a goal and an assist in Friday's season-ending 5-3 win over New Jersey.

    Rasmussen opened the scoring with his 15th goal of the season in the first and assisted on Moritz Seider's second-period tally. Though Rasmussen's season total of 27 points in 80 games is unimpressive, the 6-foot-6 forward showed some promise down the stretch with goals in three of his last four games.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Lights lamp in shutout victory

    Rasmussen scored an empty-net goal in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Devils.

    The Devils had trouble advancing the puck past center ice due to some stingy defense from Adam Erne, who jarred the puck right in the path of Rasmussen for a chip shot into the empty cage. Rasmussen has drawn praise from team brass for his competitiveness down the stretch, but either way, the Wings have him on the books for two more seasons and $1.46 million AAV, and that's not exactly a big investment for a player taken ninth overall in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Revisits scoresheet against Pens

    Rasmussen collected a goal and four hits in Saturday's 7-2 loss to the Penguins.

    Rasmussen broke out offensively with four goals in five games from the end of March through April 6, though he followed it up with a seven-game pointless skid before getting back on the horse against the Pens. There is plenty of untapped potential with Rasmussen -- whom the Wings drafted ninth overall in 2017 -- but he'll need to discover ways to be more consistent in the attacking zone.

  • Red Wings' Michael Rasmussen: Enjoying late-season surge

    Rasmussen has generated four goals over the past five games.

    Rasmussen has earned the right to slot in on the No. 2 power-play unit, but all of his goals in the midst of this hot streak have taken place at even strength. "I'm putting myself in good spots," Rasmussen said in a report by Ansar Khan of "I try my best every night to compete as a hard as I possibly can. I don't know, they're just kind of going in."
