News: Datsyuk collected a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Capitals. Impact: After starting the season in the press box with a shoulder injury, Datsyuk has proven why he's still one of the league's premier centers. He now has two goals and three assists in four games, and has been on the score sheet in each contest.(RotoWire, )

News: Datsyuk scored his first goal of the season in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Flyers. Impact: Now that's Datsyukian -- he has a point in each of his first three games this season. Get him onto your active roster, particularly if you held him out this week.(RotoWire, )

News: Datsyuk notched an assist in his season debut Tuesday versus the Canadiens. Impact: Datsyuk hooked up with longtime co-star Henrik Zetterberg for the Red Wings' only goal of the night. The 36-year-old was otherwise a non-factor in his 18:05 of ice time Tuesday, failing to register a single shot attempt, hit or block. His activity should pick up as he becomes further removed from the shoulder injury that resulted in his missing the first five games of the season.(RotoWire, )

News: Datsyuk (shoulder) will play in Tuesday's game against the Canadiens, Ansar Khan of reports. Impact: Datsyuk was not expected to return until the upcoming weekend, but he will take the ice a little earlier than expected after making it through Tuesday's morning skate without issue. He skated on the Red Wings' top line with Henrik Zetterberg and Justin Abdelkader on Tuesday morning, so he should play a prominent role for the Red Wings right out of the gate.(RotoWire, )

News: Datsyuk (shoulder) could play Tuesday against the Canadiens, Chuck Pleiness of the Macomb Daily reports. Impact: Datsyuk was targeting Oct. 25 for a return, but it sounds like he's a safe bet to be back in the lineup Tuesday at this point. The star center practiced on his usual line Monday, and even took his usual place on the top power-play unit. Keep an eye out for a confirmation update before Tuesday's game, but Datsyuk's return should be imminent.(RotoWire, )

News: Datsyuk (shoulder) isn't expected to return to game action until next weekend, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports. Impact: It appears the Red Wings are targeting Oct. 25 for Datsyuk's return, which would result in a total of seven missed games for the star forward. Datsyuk is still awaiting clearance for contact from Red Wings team doctors, but once that happens, he'll likely only need a few practices to get back up to full speed. Health has been a major stumbling block for the 36-year-old the last few seasons, but few can match Datsyuk's per-game scoring production when he's in the lineup.(RotoWire, )
