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.
Glendening (illness) will be a game-time decision on Monday.
Glendening missed the Red Wings’ morning skate due to an illness and is listed as questionable for tonight’s game. Glendening has just two goals on the season, so he can’t be counted on in fantasy circles.
Glendening (lower-body) will play on Friday vs. Carolina.
Glendening was listed as questionable for tonight’s game after dealing with a lower-body injury after Tuesday’s win. He was on the ice for the Red Wings’ morning skate and will be in the lineup tonight vs. Carolina.
Glendening (lower-body) is questionable for Friday.
Glendening was injured while blocking a shot in Tuesday’s win over the Lightning. Monitor his status during Friday’s morning skate, but if he can’t play, then Joakim Andersson will replace him in the lineup.
Glendening will play on the Red Wings top-line on Sunday.
Mike Babcock moved Glendening to the Red Wings first line with Pavel Datsyuk and Tomas Tatar on Saturday. It probably is not a permanent move, but he will start Sunday’s game there. He has 12 points (8G / 4A) in 63 games.
The Red WIngs have signed Luke Glendening to a three-year contract extension.
The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Glendening has six assists, but is still searching for his first NHL goal. He has played 51 games this season and has played very well in a shut down, fourth-line role.
