2018-01-27 analysis No one is ever going to mistake Witkowski for an offensive producer, but even a broken clock is correct twice a day, right? Well, as much as the Wings appreciate how the Michigan native can play forward or patrol the blue line, he's only set eight shots on goal this year. Even worse, he's averaging a mere 6:13 of ice time with his already limited fantasy prospects further squelched by the fact th
2018-01-27 update Witkowski is still searching for his first point through 19 games as a Red Wing.
2017-12-10 analysis The Michigan native earned the hefty suspension for returning to the ice after being ejected in a game against Calgary on Nov. 15. With just four points in a 62-game NHL career, don't expect Witkowski's return to make much of a fantasy impact.
2017-12-10 update Witkowski is eligible to play Monday against Florida after serving a 10-game suspension.

2017-11-16 analysis Witkowski was ejected from the game, only to come back out on the ice to fight some more, and that's not something that the NHL takes lightly. With Trevor Daley (upper body) and Danny DeKeyser (ankle) already ailing, expect the Wings to call up a defenseman from AHL Grand Rapids. Joe Hicketts, for one, should be standing by his phone.

2017-10-16 analysis Signed to a two-year deal with Detroit as an unrestricted free agent this summer, Witkowski's a unique talent because he can line up as a defenseman or a bottom-six forward if necessary. However, he only averaged 4:26 of ice time through his first two games donning a red sweater, and that's not nearly enough action to warrant fantasy consideration.
2017-10-16 update Witkowski has watched the last two games from the press box as a healthy scratch.
