Date Key Old Value New Value
2019-02-21 analysis The 24-year-old has five goals in the last five games, including a pair of multi-goal contests since Feb. 12. With this scoring spree, Athanasiou has set new career highs in goals and points. After Wednesday, his shooting percentage is up to 13.8 percent, but that's still about 1.0 percent within his career norm. Athanasiou is on pace for a career high in shots on goal, and that's led to his new b
2019-02-21 update Athanasiou scored a pair of third-period goals, including one on the power play, to help the Red Wings force overtime only to then lose, 5-4, against the Blackhawks.
2019-02-15 analysis That's now 20 goals on the year for Athanasiou, and he's now up to a career high in goals and has tied his career high in assists (17). With 24 games still to come, he has plenty of time left to make this a classic third-year breakout season, and the Red Wings will likely give him plenty of chances to add to his total and pad his confidence for next year. Double A's second goal came on a penalty shot. Make that a career-high 20 single-season tallies for Athanasiou, who has also tied his career best in assists (17). With 24 games still to come, he has plenty of time to make this a classic third-year breakout season, and the Red Wings will likely give him plenty of chances to add to the total and pad his confidence for next year.

2019-02-15 update Athanasiou scored twice in seven minutes Thursday, helping his club to a 3-2 win over Ottawa.
2019-02-13 analysis The Red Wings' forward picked a good time to get back in the goal column, as Athanasiou scored the game-winner Tuesday night. He's up to 18 goals and 35 points -- a career high -- in 51 games this season.
2019-02-13 update Athanasiou scored his first goal since Jan. 8 in Tuesday's 3-2 win over Nashville.
2019-02-02 analysis It's fitting that Athanasiou plays in Detroit because the 24-year-old certainly has a motor. While he was unable to light the lamp, both of his shots were of the high-danger variety, and Double A had no trouble slicing through the attacking zone en route to a career-high, single-game point total. With 17 goals and 16 assists through 46 games, he's reaching new heights in his fourth season.
2019-02-02 update Athanasiou produced three assists -- including a power-play helper -- in Friday's 3-2 overtime win over the Maple Leafs.
2019-01-23 analysis The 24-year-old will have to wait at least one more game to tie his career best in goals, but with the pair of helpers, he hit the 30-point mark in 45 games. He should blow away his career-high 33 points from 2016-17 this season. Athansiou can thank his breakout season in the scoring department to more shots on net. He's also receiving more ice time, both of which indicate that Athansiou should be
2019-01-23 update Athanasiou recorded two assists and four shots in a 3-2 victory against the Oilers on Tuesday.
2019-01-21 analysis Athanasiou is launching the puck more than ever (2.91 per game) and it hasn't even come at the expense of a lower shooting percentage. Barring an injury, he should have no problem finishing with 200-plus shots by the time the 2018-19 season comes to a close, and with the speedy forward converting shots at a respectable 13.3-percent clip, 30 goals is attainable. Keep an eye on Athanasiou ahead of t
2019-01-21 update Athanasiou is one goal away from tying his career-high mark of 18.
2019-01-09 analysis Athanasiou scored his first goal off the rush, firing a laser over the shoulder of Antti Niemi. He added another on a power play early in the third period and had multiple opportunities for a hat trick but would ultimately fall short. The pair of goals gives Anthansiou six snipes over his last seven games, bringing the 24-year-old up to to 17 goals and 27 points in 39 games this season. Up next is
2019-01-09 update Athanasiou scored both goals in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Canadiens.
2019-01-03 analysis The speedster's unassisted goal late in the second period gave the Wings a brief 3-2 lead, but it was all Calgary after that. Athanasiou now has 15 goals and 26 points through 37 games, putting him on pace to easily top last season's career high of 33 points, but his fantasy ceiling remains somewhat constrained by his middle-six role and lack of consistent ice time with the more talented linemates
2019-01-03 update Athanasiou scored a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Flames.
2018-12-28 analysis Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News had a more definitive take on the situation, writing that Athanasiou "will play" against the Pens. The fleet-footed center is on a career-best offensive pace, with Athanasiou averaging 0.63 points per game. He's also on the verge of hitting the two-minute mark for average rink run on the man advantage, so it would be wise to get Double A back into fantasy lineups at Not only did Athanasiou bulge twine in his return, but he skated more than a full minute longer than his season average (16:24) heading into the contest. It's a bit difficult to trust Double A in most fantasy leagues since he plays for a team that ranks seventh in its division, though he's well on his way to upping his point total for the third consecutive season.
2018-12-28 update Athanasiou (upper body) is expected to return Thursday night against the Penguins. Athanasiou returned from an upper-body injury Thursday, recording a goal between 17:46 of ice time in a 5-2 road loss to the Penguins.

2018-12-23 analysis Even without Athanasiou, the Wings managed 11 high-danger scoring chances in Saturday's 2-1 home loss to the Panthers, but the creative forward with wheels would be welcomed back with open arms against a Leafs team that's chock full of stars that are particularly dangerous in open space.

The 24-year-old has 11 goals and 20 points in 32 games, and he looks poised to eclipse his career high of 33 points last season. Barring any setbacks, Athanasiou should be ready to play after the holiday break, starting Thursday versus the Penguins.
