Red Wings' Jake Walman: Nice fit in Motown
Walman posted 18 points, 47 hits, 121 blocked shots and a plus-10 rating through 63 games this season.
A shoulder injury caused Walman to get off to a late start to the campaign, but he made quite the impression for the Wings upon returning, as the aforementioned totals were all career-best marks. The Blues' castoff had played sparingly in St. Louis to start his career, though he leveled up with his new team, managing a whopping 140 shots on goal and lighting the lamp nine times to complement the same number of helpers. He inked a three-year, $10.2 million deal in February as a major boon to his confidence. From a fantasy perspective, there's a chance he'll be on the radar in deep leagues this fall.... See More ...

Those counting stats won't move the needle much in fantasy leagues, but Walman has surpassed expectations in Motown, with the reward being a three-year, $10.2 million extension that he inked in February....

Red Wings' Jake Walman: Pots seventh goal
Walman found the back of the net in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Blackhawks.
The Wings likely appreciate the competitiveness that Walman brings to the table.

Walman has seven goals, five assists and 87 blocked shots through 45 games; those numbers won't impress your average fantasy manager, but he's earned a plus-16 rating and is clearly trending in the right direction....
