Oct. 20, 2017 Athanasiou will end his holdout after agreeing on a one-year, $1.3875 million contract with the Red Wings. A restricted free agent, Athanasiou and the Red Wings weren't able to come to terms on a deal during the offseason and preseason, leading to speculation he would play the season in Russia. The 23-year-old ranked second among Detroit players with 18 goals last season, his second in the NHL. Athanasiou had been in Sweden during the holdout, so it's still unclear when he'll be able to rejoin the Red Wings and get into games.

2018-10-21 analysis The helper was nice and all, but it's been hard for fans of the Winged Wheel to keep watching this kid struggle in general. Athanasiou only has two goals on 26 shots this season, and his defensive play -- he's at minus-4 through eight games -- leaves a lot to be desired. Red Wings GM Ken Holland obviously believes in Double A based on his bestowing a two-year, $6 million contract extension on the
2018-10-21 update Athanasiou recorded a power-play assist Saturday, lending a helping hand in a 4-3 overtime road win over the Panthers.
2018-10-16 analysis The 6-foot-2 center has finally found the back of the net this season, notching his first two goals in Monday's embarrassing loss. It appears that Detroit is going to struggle all season and it will be hard to trust any of the team's skaters to post consistent numbers.
2018-10-16 update Athanasiou scored a pair of goals on five shots in Monday's 7-3 loss to Montreal.
2018-10-08 analysis Athanasiou was technically credited with the primary helper, but opposing defenseman Dion Phaneuf actually was the one to change the angle on Anthony Mantha's shot, leading to a rather fortuitous goal for the latter. Still, Athanasiou owners will take what they can get from the converted center who was wildly inconsistent on the way to a 33-point output in the 2017-18 campaign.
2018-10-08 update Athanasiou registered a power-play assist in Sunday's 4-2 road loss to the Kings.
2018-10-03 Position LW C
2018-09-26 analysis All but one of Athanasiou's points -- a shorthanded assist to Dylan Larkin -- occurred at even strength. Double A creates an absolute nightmare for slow defensemen, and he's been dialed in during the preseason as evidenced by four goals, two assists and a plus-6 rating over three games. Don't lose sight on him as a depth forward in drafts, as Athanasiou still has plenty of untapped potential.
2018-09-26 update Athanasiou provided two goals, two assists and a plus-5 rating in Tuesday's 8-6 road win over the Blackhawks.
2018-09-23 analysis One of the fastest skaters in the game, Athanasiou crashed the net and coerced goalie Casey DeSmith into committing near the top of the crease, then he went with a backhand for a beautiful goal. Detroit will be depending on Athanasiou more than ever since a persistent back injury caused the team's latest captain, Henrik Zetterberg, to hang up his skates for good.
2018-09-23 update Athanasiou deposited a goal in Sunday's 3-2 road win over the Penguins.
2018-09-20 analysis This will be an important season for Athanasiou, as he will need to prove deserving of the two-year, $6 million contract extension that he signed in July. Double A was limited to 71 games last season, in large part because his agent played hardball on his behalf in lobbying for a new contract before the two sides ultimately agreed to a one-year pact in October. Henrik Zetterberg deciding to retire
2018-09-20 update Athanasiou scored his first goal of the preseason Thursday, contributing to a 4-2 home win over the Blackhawks.
