Top J.T. Compher News

  • Red Wings' J.T. Compher: Finds twine in rout

    Compher found the back of the net in Saturday's 5-0 win over the Flames.

    The Wings created a turnover in the offensive zone and it resulted in Compher's 13th goal of the season. He's been on a tear lately, with four goals and four assists over the last 10 games. With 32 points -- including seven power-play points -- through 49 contests, Compher has been a solid complementary contributor for fantasy managers, but it may be tough for him to sustain a 20.0 shooting percentage.

  • Red Wings' J.T. Compher: Scores 100th career goal

    Compher scored a goal on five shots in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Canucks.

    Compher snapped a five-game goal drought with the tally. He had three assists in that span to keep his offense on the right track. The 28-year-old's goal Thursday was the 100th of his career, a milestone he reached in his 471st game. He's up to 31 points, 64 shots on net, 28 PIM, 31 blocked shots and a minus-1 rating through 48 appearances in 2023-24 as the Red Wings' second-line center.

  • Red Wings' J.T. Compher: Manages helper in loss

    Compher logged an assist in Tuesday's 8-4 loss to the Oilers.

    With two goals and four helpers over his last eight games, Compher continues to make solid contributions from a second-line role. He's at 30 points, 59 shots on net, 28 PIM, 25 hits, 31 blocked shots and a minus-1 rating over 47 outings this season. The 28-year-old is locked in to a top-six role with power-play time, so he should be useful as at least a depth forward in most fantasy formats.

  • Red Wings' J.T. Compher: Set to play Thursday

    Compher (illness) is expected to play Thursday versus the Flyers, Ansar Khan of reports.

    Compher was considered day-to-day as of Wednesday, but he's recovered enough to suit up without missing a game. Expect the 28-year-old to play in his usual second-line role with power-play time.

  • Red Wings' J.T. Compher: Questionable against Flyers

    Compher is under the weather, leaving his status for Thursday's game versus Philadelphia in doubt, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Compher could end up being a game-time decision Thursday. The 28-year-old forward has collected 11 goals and 27 points through 42 contests this season.

  • Red Wings' J.T. Compher: Back in scoring column

    Compher potted a power-play goal in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Hurricanes.

    Both teams had just one power-play chance in the contest, and Compher did his part for the Wings courtesy of a snapshot in the middle frame. Compher was held without a point for six consecutive games prior to his goal against the Hurricanes, but the second-line pivot is up 10 markers and 15 assists through 40 outings, which is about the exact pace that resulted in him earning a career-high 52 points with the Avalanche last season.

  • Red Wings' J.T. Compher: Tallies in Tuesday's win

    Compher scored a goal and blocked two shots in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Sharks.

    Compher has two goals and two assists during his four-game point streak. The 28-year-old center tallied in the second period Tuesday to create a 2-1 lead for the Red Wings. He's been solid in a top-six role for much of the season, earning 24 points, 42 shots on net, 22 blocked shots, 22 PIM and a minus-2 rating through 33 appearances.

  • Red Wings' J.T. Compher: Mixed results in loss

    Compher delivered a power-play assist but skated to a minus-4 rating in Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the Wild.

    Detroit's second line looked rather anemic in this one, but Compher at least salvaged his fantasy output with a power-play helper that culminated in another tally for team-scoring leader Alex DeBrincat. As a player heavily utilized on both the man advantage and penalty kill, Compher should continue seeing ample chances to produce. He's up to seven goals and 14 assists through 30 games.

  • Red Wings' J.T. Compher: Patience pays off Friday

    Compher potted a goal in Friday's 7-6 shootout win over the Flyers.

    Compher earned a tip-in goal after linemate Joe Veleno was repeatedly blocked at the doorstep. Perhaps fantasy managers were hoping for more out of Compher due to the high score, but the silver lining is that he's averaging 20:43 of ice time since being removed from injured reserve due to an undisclosed injury.

  • Red Wings' J.T. Compher: Expected to return Saturday

    Compher, who has been on injured reserve due to an undisclosed injury, is expected to be activated and play Saturday versus Philadelphia, Daniella Bruce of the Red Wings' official site reports Friday.

    Compher has missed five straight games because of the injury. He has six goals and 19 points in 24 contests this season. Compher is projected to serve on the top line alongside Michael Rasmussen and Patrick Kane in his return. That might lead to Andrew Copp playing a reduced role and Christian Fischer being a healthy scratch.

  • Red Wings' J.T. Compher: Considered day-to-day

    Compher is now considered day-to-day with his undisclosed injury, but he won't be available for Thursday's game versus Carolina.

    It's encouraging to see that Compher, who's been sidelined since last Thursday, is now in the day-to-day category, but he'll have to wait for Saturday's matchup with the Flyers for his next potential opportunity to return to the lineup. The 28-year-old pivot has racked up six goals and 19 points through 24 contests this campaign.

  • Red Wings' J.T. Compher: Lands on injured reserve

    Compher (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Monday retroactive to Dec. 5.

    Compher's retroactive designation means he could be activated following the team's back-to-back against Dallas and St. Louis on Monday and Tuesday, respectively. Prior to getting hurt, the 28-year-old center was rolling offensively with 13 points in his last 13 contests, including a trio of power-play points and a shorthanded goal. With Dylan Larkin (undisclosed) also on injured reserve, Joe Veleno could be pressed into service as the No. 1 center.

    Compher (soreness) won't be in the lineup versus Ottawa on Saturday, Daniella Bruce of the Red Wings' official site reports.

    Compher practiced Friday after sitting out Thursday's game against San Jose, but he is still not healthy enough to return. He has been solid for the Red Wings this season, picking up six goals and 19 points in 24 games. The Red Wings play in Dallas on Monday and Compher could be in line to return to action.

  • Red Wings' J.T. Compher: Game-time decision Saturday

  • Red Wings' J.T. Compher: Not playing Thursday

    Compher (soreness) will not play versus San Jose on Thursday.

    Compher is considered day-to-day at this time. He logged 20:03 of ice time versus Buffalo on Tuesday, but he was unable to practice Thursday. Compher is having a solid year with six goals and 19 points in 24 games. He will be replaced on the power play by Daniel Sprong against the Sharks.

  • Red Wings' J.T. Compher: Shines on special teams

    Compher scored two goals, one on the power play and one shorthanded, in Thursday's 5-1 win over Chicago.

    The 28-year-old opened the scoring early in the first period by converting a feed from Andrew Copp on the counterattack to spoil a Chicago power play, then Compher tapped home a pass from David Perron with the man advantage in the second. The former Colorado player caught fire in November with four goals and 13 points in 12 games, but Compher's surge was fueled in part by 36.4 percent shooting which isn't going to last. Additionally, he's one of the candidates to lose their spot on Detroit's top power-play unit once Patrick Kane (hip) is ready to go.

  • Red Wings' J.T. Compher: Big day on power play

    Compher produced a goal and an assist, both on the power play, in Friday's 5-2 win over the Bruins.

    He got Detroit on the board early in the first period before feeding Dylan Larkin for the team's fourth tally of the afternoon in the third. Compher had a sluggish start to his first season with the Red Wings but has caught fire in November - over the last eight games he's racked up two goals and 10 points. However, despite a regular shift on the top power-play unit, he had only one point (an assist) on the man advantage coming into Friday.

  • Red Wings' J.T. Compher: Paving way to career season

    Compher contributed an assist in Wednesday's 4-0 win over the Devils.

    After spending his first seven seasons in Colorado, there had been questions about how well Compher would adjust to a new team. But with three goals, 11 assists and a plus-4 rating through 18 games, it's safe to say he's passed the early test. The second-line pivot has just one power-play point (an assist), though he looks firmly entrenched on the secondary man-advantage unit.

  • Red Wings' J.T. Compher: Snags two assists

    Compher picked up two helpers in Thursday's 5-4 defeat to Ottawa.

    Compher extended his point streak to five straight games, giving him one goal and six helpers over that stretch. Despite averaging 1:51 of power-play ice time this season, only one of the Illinois native's 13 points this season has come with the man advantage. Compher entered 2023-24 on the heels of a career-best 52-point campaign and is on pace to top that mark this year as well.
