He owns a sparkling 11 goals and 19 points in 15 games this year -- a slightly higher scoring rate than those of Sidney Crosby and Jake Voracek, the NHL's co-leaders in points.

News: Pavel Datsyuk notched two goals in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Flyers.
Analysis: Wednesday's game was Pavel Datsyuk's first since Nov. 16 due to a nagging groin injury, but the center proved once again that he's still an elite fantasy producer when healthy. His second goal was also the game winner, and moved his point total to 13 through 11 games this season.

Red Wings' Datsyuk Will Play Wednesday

News: Pavel Datsyuk (groin) will return to the lineup Wednesday against the Flyers, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: After returning to practice Tuesday, Pavel Datsyuk was back on the ice for Wednesday's morning skate, participating fully in drills. He'll find himself outside of a top-six role following a four-game absence, as he's set to skate with Stephen Weiss and Darren Helm on the team's third line. The arrangement won't necessarily resulted in decreased minutes for Datsyuk, but his scoring opportunities might not be quite as bountiful while he skates with lesser linemates.

Red Wings' Datsyuk Will Be Game-Day Decision

News: A decision on whether or not Pavel Datsyuk (groin) will play Wednesday will be made after the Red Wings' Wednesday morning skate, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Pavel Datsyuk practiced Tuesday and saw action on the power play, which hints at him playing Wednesday. However, the Red Wings will wait to see how he feels on game day before making a final call on his availability.

Wings' Datsyuk Misses Practice

News: Pavel Datsyuk (groin) did not practice Monday and is expected to miss the evening's matchup with the Senators, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Pavel Datsyuk's groin injury just won't go away, and it's starting to diminish his fantasy value. He's still an elite player when healthy, having recorded five goals and six assists in 10 games, but his health certainly needs to be monitored.

Red Wings' Datsyuk (Groin) Ruled Out Saturday

News: Pavel Datsyuk (groin) has been ruled out from playing Saturday against the Maple Leafs, Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News reports.
Analysis: There was some hope that Pavel Datsyuk might suit up Saturday after he was able to get in a skate Thursday morning, but it appears the forward still needs some additional time to get back to full health. He'll miss his third straight game with an injury and turn his attention to returning Monday against Ottawa.

Wings' Datsyuk Skates After Practice

News: Pavel Datsyuk (groin) skated on his own after Thursday's morning skate, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Pavel Datsyuk was ruled out from playing Thursday against the Jets, but his involvement on the ice in some capacity suggests he could be eyeing a return to the lineup Saturday against the Maple Leafs. The center would likely have to get in a practice Friday or take part in Saturday's morning session before he's deemed ready to go.

Red Wings' Datsyuk Out Again Thursday

News: Pavel Datsyuk (groin) wasn't on the ice for morning skate and appears set to miss Thursday's game against the Jets, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Though Pavel Datsyuk is traveling with the team on their two-game road swing, he probably won't be a lineup option for the Red Wings until he resumes skating with the team. The groin injury has proven bothersome to Datsyuk all season, but hasn't hindered his production when he's been healthy enough to play. Datsyuk has five goals and 11 points over 10 games.

Wings' Datsyuk (Groin) To Travel With Club

News: Pavel Datsyuk will travel with the Red Wings to both Winnipeg and Toronto, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: Though he didn't practice Wednesday, Pavel Datsyuk hasn't yet been placed on injured reserve, so it seems the team is still viewing him as day-to-day. The fact that he is on the road trip with the team further indicates that. He returned last Friday but likely suffered a setback as he missed Tuesday's contest. It may be an injury he will need to battle with throughout the season.

Red Wings' Datsyuk Out Tuesday

News: Pavel Datsyuk (groin) will not play in Tuesday's game against the Blue Jackets, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Pavel Datsyuk was unable to participate in Tuesday's morning skate, so he will be replaced in the lineup by Dan Cleary on Tuesday night. It remains to be seen if he will be able to play in either of the two games remaining on the Red Wings' current road trip that ends Saturday.

Wings' Datsyuk Still Ailing

News: Pavel Datsyuk (groin) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Blue Jackets, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Pavel Datsyuk is still dealing with the same groin injury that has been nagging him all season, which is a bad sign for the aging center. Groin injuries have a tendency to linger for a long time, so the Wings might be best served to sit him down until he's 100-percent again.

Red Wings' Datsyuk Will Play Friday

News: Pavel Datsyuk (groin) will play in Friday's game against the Blackhawks, according to Chuck Pleiness of the Macomb Daily.
Analysis: Pavel Datsyuk skated on the Red Wings' second line with Tomas Jurco and Justin Abdelkader during the team's morning skate, and Jurco confirmed after the session that the three would line up together Friday night. Datsyuk, who has tallied five goals and five assists in just eight games this season, will suit up Friday for the first time since Nov. 5.

Wings To Decide Datsyuk's Status Friday Morning

News: The Red Wings will determine whether or not Pavel Datsyuk (groin) will play Friday against the Blackhawks following their morning skate that day, Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News reports.
Analysis: After he was able to return to practice Wednesday, Pavel Datsyuk expressed optimism that he'd be ready to go in time for Friday's game, though the Detroit medical staff understandably wants to check up on him after the morning skate before clearing him for a return. The veteran center has been sidelined for the previous two games with the injury, but given his impressive play when healthy this season, he should be immediately reinserted in fantasy lineups if he receives the green light to suit up Friday.

Wings' Datsyuk Back On Ice, Hopeful For Friday

News: Pavel Datsyuk (groin) was on the ice during practice on Wednesday, MLive's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Pavel Datsyuk has missed the Red Wings' last two games, but is looks like a safe bet to return for their next game on Friday against the Blackhawks. Before he got injured, the 36-year-old center had put up his typically solid offensive numbers, scoring five goals and adding five assists in eight games.

Wings' Datsyuk Skates Monday

News: Pavel Datsyuk (groin) started skating again Monday, MLive's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Pavel Datsyuk should be ready by Friday's game, provided he avoids any setbacks. He's got 10 points in eight games this year, but has missed two consecutive games and seven overall to injury this season.

Wings' Datsyuk Out For Sunday

News: Pavel Datsyuk (groin) will not play Sunday against the Lightning, MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Pavel Datsyuk posted five goals and five assists in eight games while he was healthy, but he is dealing with his second injury of the young season and will not be in the lineup Sunday.

Pavel Datsyuk

Red Wings' Datsyuk Not Skating Saturday

News: Pavel Datsyuk (groin) didn't skate at Saturday's practice, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: It seems highly probable that the Red Wings will hold Pavel Datsyuk out for the second straight game Sunday, with the team instead turning its focus to having him ready for action Nov. 14 against the Blackhawks. Datsyuk has already missed time with a shoulder injury this season but has otherwise been magnificent in the eight games in which he's suited up, producing five goals and five assists.

Wings' Datsyuk Unlikely To Play Sunday

News: Pavel Datsyuk (groin) is unlikely to play in Sunday's game, especially with a five-day break after the matchup with the Lightning, the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: With the tendency for groin injuries to linger and with Pavel Datsyuk getting up in years, it would be unlikely for the Red Wings to risk his health Sunday. He should return for Friday's game against the Blackhawks barring a setback.

Wings' Datsyuk Out Friday With Groin Injury

News: Pavel Datsyuk suffered a groin injury in the morning skate and it will prevent him from playing Friday against the Devils, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Pavel Datsyuk's injury wasn't reported earlier in the day as the team was likely waiting to see if he could go. It appears the injury is serious enough to keep him out Friday, and could leave his status for Sunday's game against the Lightning in question as well. The team should update his status in the next couple days, but he should be considered day-to-day unless something indicates otherwise.

News: Pavel Datsyuk put up another two points with a goal and an assist in a 3-2 shootout loss to Buffalo on Sunday.
Analysis: Pavel Datsyuk's owners couldn't be happier with how he's played since returning from injury, as he has five goals and five assists in six games. He appears fully healthy, showing off his usual mastery of the puck on Sunday.

Red Wings' Datsyuk Lights Lamp Twice In Win

News: Pavel Datsyuk extended his goal streak to three games Friday, netting two goals and an assist in a win over Los Angeles.
Analysis: There might not be a hotter player in the NHL right now. After missing the start of the season with a shoulder injury, Pavel Datsyuk has recorded at least a point in his first five games, tallying four goals and four assists. As long as he remains healthy, Datsyuk is among the league's best.
