News: Abdelkader left Thursday's game late in the first period after taking a puck to the face, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports. Impact: Abdelkader needed to be helped off the ice and taken into the locker room because of the injury. He didn't return for the remainder of the first period, though there wasn't much time left, but the team will likely update his status for the remainder of the game at some point in the near future.(RotoWire, )

News: Abdelkader scored a goal and added an assist in Friday's win over Toronto. Impact: The 27-year-old third-line winger has now collected four points (two goals) through four games on the season. Abdelkader's value comes in very deep leagues, as he has never surpassed 28 points in a season and sees minimal power-play time.(RotoWire, )

News: Abdelkader said after morning skate that he'd be in the lineup Friday against the Maple Leafs, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports. Impact: Abdelkader was given Thursday's practice off for maintenance purposes, but it sounds like he's feeling fully healthy. Abdelkader could receive a day off somewhere down the road in order for either Dan Cleary or Stephen Weiss to get in the lineup, but it doesn't appear that will happen Friday.(RotoWire, )

News: Abdelkader missed Thursday's practice with what coach Mike Babcock called a "maintenance day," MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports. Impact: Babcock said that Abdelkader would be available for Friday's game against the Maple Leafs, but he didn't confirm the winger would necessarily be in the lineup. Neither Stephen Weiss nor Dan Cleary has seen the ice this season, so the weekend back-to-back set could present a good opportunity for either player to spell Abdelkader for a game.(RotoWire, )

News: Abdelkader tallied one of two second-period goals for the Red Wings in their 2-1 victory over the Bruins on Thursday. Impact: In a game in which the two teams combined for just 41 shots, Abdelkader's deflected shot past goalie Tuukka Rask mostly amounted to a stroke of luck for the Red Wings. Both Abdelkader and Johan Franzen were in the vicinity of the puck when it deflected into the goal, but after video review, Abdelkader was awarded the marker. Abdelkader saw 17:34 of ice time in the victory, and should continue to see a decent amount of minutes due to his competence at both even strength and on special teams.(RotoWire, )
