  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Extends point streak in loss

    Walman scored his fifth goal of the season in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Blue Jackets.

    While Moritz Seider is the future on the blue line for Detroit, Walman is suddenly looking like a key piece as well. The 26-year-old has a point in four straight games, finding the back of the net in three of them. Over the last dozen contests, Walman has four goals and seven points while seeing action on the second power-play unit. He's also chipped in 14 PIM, 16 hits, 27 blocked shots, 32 shots on net and a plus-5 rating over that stretch, making Walman a fantasy asset in plenty of formats.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Completes Red Wings' comeback

    Walman scored a goal in a 5-4 overtime win against Pittsburgh on Wednesday.

    Walman scored at 2:13 of the overtime period, completing a comeback that saw Detroit emerge victorious after falling behind 4-0. It was Walman's second goal and third point in 17 games this season. The 26-year-old had three goals and 10 points in 51 contests last season and isn't expected to make regular offensive contributions in 2022-23.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Efficient despite team loss

    Walman collected an assist and even managed a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Senators.

    This was a strong performance by Walman, who worked against the grain of a lackluster defensive effort from the Red Wings as a whole. Walman, a depth defender whose campaign got off to a late start due to his recovery from shoulder surgery, is now plus-10 through 14 games.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Tallies first goal

    Walman scored a goal, added two hits and went plus-2 in Thursday's 7-4 win over the Sharks.

    Walman tallied a go-ahead goal in the second period after an assist from Michael Rasmussen. The goal was Walman's first point in two contests this season, as he was sidelined for the first month of the campaign while recovering from shoulder surgery. The blueliner had 10 points in 51 contests between the Blues and the Red Wings last year, so he shouldn't be expected to do much, especially if he remains on the third pairing.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Ready for season debut

    Walman (shoulder) is expected to make his season debut Tuesday against Anaheim, Dan Arritt of reports.

    Walman sat out the first 15 games of the 2022-23 campaign following offseason shoulder surgery. He is projected to be paired with Jordan Oesterle. Walman registered four assists, 39 shots on goal, 32 blocks and 26 hits in 19 games with the Red Wings last year.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Removed from IR

    Walman (shoulder) was activated from injured reserve early Sunday morning, according to CapFriendly.

    Walman was listed as a scratch for Saturday's game against Los Angeles. He is getting close to making his 2022-23 debut from offseason shoulder surgery. Consider him day-to-day for now.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Return in sight

    Walman (shoulder) is in line to return on the Wings' West Coast trip that starts Saturday against the Kings and concludes Nov. 17 versus the Sharks, Ansar Khan of reports.

    Walman is rounding out his recovery from offseason shoulder surgery, remaining on track for a mid-November return. Once he's fully ready to rock, the depth defenseman should help stabilize the third pair that currently includes Jordan Oesterle and Gustav Lindstrom.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Moves closer to return

    Walman (shoulder) is 7-10 days away from making his season debut, per Max Bultman of The Athletic.

    Walman has yet to play this season after undergoing shoulder surgery in the offseason. The 26-year-old blueliner will likely compete for a bottom-four role with the Red Wings upon his return.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Takes next recovery step

    Walman (shoulder) was seen at practice without a non-contact jersey Thursday, Ansar Khan of reports.

    The Red Wings are easing Walman back from shoulder surgery. Meanwhile, Gustav Lindstrom is rounding out the third defensive pair with Robert Hagg for a Red Wings team that has yet to lose in regulation.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Practices in non-contact sweater

    Walman (shoulder) was back on the ice in a non-contact jersey Monday, Ansar Khan of reports.

    It was initially suggested that Walman would return in mid-November, but he is now considered ahead of schedule in his recovery. Next up for the depth defenseman is proving that he can withstand contact in practice. "Contact I think is not too far away," he said. "I feel 100 percent already. I feel like I could do contact but it's just waiting on the doctors pretty much."

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Recovery on schedule

    Walman (shoulder) remains on track to return in November, Ansar Khan of reports.

    Walman is targeting a mid-November return, and we suspect he'll be a candidate for a third-pairing role or that of a spare defenseman once healthy. He's a depth option for a Red Wings team that needs stability at the position.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Targeting mid-November return

    Walman (shoulder) is slated to rejoin the lineup in mid-November, Max Bultman of The Athletic reports Wednesday.

    Walman had previously been ruled out for the start of the 2022-23 campaign after undergoing offseason shoulder surgery. Despite his expected absence, the club still gave Walman a new one-year deal back in August. With Mark Pysyk (Achilles) also facing a long-term absence, Jordan Oesterle and Gustav Lindstrom figure to fill out the third pairing with Robert Hagg also in the mix. Walman will certainly be designated for long-term injured reserve closer to Opening Night.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Secures new deal

    Walman (shoulder) signed a one-year, $1.05 million contract with Detroit on Wednesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Walman was headed for an arbitration hearing but instead agreed to settle with the club on a new deal. Perhaps most importantly for the blueliner, his new contract is a one-way pact, which means it will be harder for the club to move him between the NHL and AHL. WIth Walman expected to miss the start of the season due to his shoulder issue, he may be hard-pressed to secure regular minutes in 2022-23.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Recovering from surgery

    Walman is recovering from shoulder surgery and won't be ready for the start of the 2022-23 season, Max Bultman of The Athletic reports.

    It's unclear when Walman underwent surgery, but he'll miss the start of the 2022-23 campaign at a minimum. The 26-year-old defender picked up three goals and 10 points through 51 top-level appearances split between the Blues and the Red Wings last season.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Garners point in finale

    Walman added an assist in the season finale Friday, contributing to a 5-3 win over the Devils.

    Walman started his third season with the Blues, adding six points through 32 games, but a trade to the Red Wings afforded him an expanded role and he pitched in four assists, 26 hits and 32 blocked shots through 19 contests with his new team. He has some offensive flair to his game, but coach Jeff Blashill sent Walman to the ice in the defensive zone 53 percent of the time, which was a change of pace from what Walman was accustomed to in St. Louis. Wallman is a restricted free agent ahead of the 2022-23 campaign.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Cleared to play

    Walman (upper body) will return to the lineup Tuesday versus the Senators.

    Walman missed Saturday's game versus the Blue Jackets with an upper-body injury, but it's clearly not a serious issue. The 26-year-old Walman will return to a third-pairing role. He's logged two assists in nine games since he was traded from the Blues to the Red Wings at the trade deadline.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Out with upper-body injury

    Walman (upper body) won't play Saturday versus the Blue Jackets, Ansar Khan of reports.

    Jordan Oesterle will enter the lineup to replace Walman. The 26-year-old Walman has earned two assists in nine games since he was traded to Detroit from the Blues, but he's been limited primarily to a bottom-four role. His next chance to play will be Tuesday versus the Senators.

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Could carve meaningful role

    Red Wings GM Steve Yzerman said Walman, acquired from the Blues in a trade Monday, has a chance to become a regular for his new club, Ansar Khan of reports.

    Walman averaged only 13 minutes of ice time between 57 contests with the Blues, but the Wings aren't as formidable on the blue line as that Central Division club, so he could see an uptick in playing time now that he's swapped sweaters. Yzerman reportedly likes Walman because he "skates well, shoots the puck hard, (and is) competitive."

  • Red Wings' Jake Walman: Traded to Detroit

    Walman was traded to the Red Wings from the Blues on Monday along with Oskar Sundqvist and a 2023 second-round pick in exchange for Nick Leddy and Luke Witkowski.

    The Blues are upgrading from Walman to Leddy on defense, while a move to an inferior Detroit team could offer an opportunity for Walman to play more minutes. Walman rarely saw action on either of the Blues' top two defense pairings, as the 26-year-old defenseman totaled three goals and three assists while eclipsing 17 minutes of ice time only once in 32 appearances for St. Louis in 2021-22.
