Stars' Eaves Bags First Of Season

News: Patrick Eaves netted his first goal of the season, had three shots, and was credited with four hits in Friday's win over New Jersey.
Analysis: Considering he is a fourth-liner seeing no power-play time, Patrick Eaves isn't relevant in shallow fantasy formats. If he remains healthy, though, the former Predator could net 10-15 goals, making him worth a look in the very deepest of leagues.

Eaves Signs With Stars

News: The Stars have signed Patrick Eaves to a one-year contract.
Analysis: Patrick Eaves, who recorded five points in 30 games with Detroit and Nashville last season, obviously isn't as splashy an addition as Jason Spezza or Ales Hemsky, but he's a nice depth addition for the Stars up front. "Patrick is a smart and disciplined, two-way player who plays a high-tempo game," Stars GM Jim Nill said. "His speed and versatility will fit in well with our style of play and add great depth to our forward corps."

Preds' Eaves Out Again Friday

News: Patrick Eaves (upper body) is out for Friday's game, The Tennessean's Joshua Cooper reports.
Analysis: Considered doubtful heading into the game, Patrick Eaves will likely miss time beyond Friday. Teammates Seth Jones (head) and Paul Gaustad (concussion) are expected to return Saturday, but a possible return for Eaves was not mentioned.

Preds' Eaves Doubtful Friday

News: Patrick Eaves (upper body) is doubtful for Friday's game in Anaheim, The Tennessean reports.

Preds' Eaves Out Friday

News: Patrick Eaves (upper body) will not play in Friday's game against the Stars, The Tennessean's Joshua Cooper reports.
Analysis: With Patrick Eaves and Paul Gaustad both bothered by upper-body injuries, the Preds will again be down a pair of forwards. While healthy, both had been spending most of their time on the fourth line.

Preds' Eaves Out Thursday

News: Patrick Eaves is not in Thursday's lineup, the Tennessean's Nick Cole reports.

Preds' Eaves Dealing With Unspecified Injury

News: Patrick Eaves is a non-healthy scratch for Friday's game against the Bruins, the Tennessean's Joshua Cooper reports.
Analysis: Details are unavailable, and teammates Nick Spaling (undisclosed) and Paul Gaustad (upper body) are also scratched for health reasons. Patrick Eaves has been skating on the Preds' fourth line recently, piling up about 7-12 minutes of ice time per game. He has just five points (two goals) through 30 appearances.

Nashville Acquires Eaves From Red Wings

News: Patrick Eaves was traded to the Predators along with a future third-round draft pick and a prospect in exchange for forward David Legwand, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Patrick Eaves is essentially just a throw-in piece, as the Red Wings needed to take somebody off their roster to make room for Legwand's arrival. For now, Eaves will remain on the NHL roster for Nashville, but it wouldn't be a surprise if he's a fourth-liner or healthy scratch most nights.

Detroit's Eaves Finds Twine Wednesday

News: Patrick Eaves scored his second goal of the season in a 5-4 shootout victory over the Blackhawks on Wednesday.
Analysis: Patrick Eaves has taken advantage of injuries and has filled in nicely, with three points and a plus-4 in his last 10 games. Those three points are his total for the season, however, in 19 games.

Wings' Eaves Expects To Play Saturday

News: Patrick Eaves (upper body) is expected to play in Saturday's game against the Stars, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Patrick Eaves left Wednesday's Winter Classic after being hit hard on a cross check. He does not have any concerns about a concussion. He should be able to return for Saturday's game if he does not have any setbacks.

Wings' Eaves (Neck) Unable To Return

News: Updating an earlier report, Patrick Eaves was unable to return to Wednesday's Winter Classic after taking a cross check to the side of his neck from Toronto's Joffrey Lupul, according to CBC's Hockey Night in Canada.
Analysis: Patrick Eaves' history of concussions concerns us and the angular force of the hit may create trauma that compounds the issues. There may be a post-game update available soon.

Red Wings' Eaves Injured Wednesday

News: Patrick Eaves suffered an upper-body injury and is questionable to return to Wednesday's Winter Classic, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: After taking a high cross-check from Toronto's Joffrey Lupul in the first period, Patrick Eaves was announced as questionable to return at the start of the second period. He's likely dealing with either a head or neck injury, which is particularly concerning once you account for his history of concussions. That said, it's encouraging that he hasn't been ruled out from returning to Wednesday's game.

Wings' Eaves Shakes Off Healthy Scratch

News: One game after a healthy scratch, Patrick Eaves scored his first goal of the season Monday in a 6-4 loss to Nashville.
Analysis: The goal was also Patrick Eaves' first point of the season. With the number of forwards Detroit has, it will be a battle all season for Eaves to stay in the lineup.

Wings' Eaves Headed To Press Box

News: Patrick Eaves appears to be a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against the Panthers, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: The Wings are somewhat healthier up front after the holiday break, making Patrick Eaves an odd-man out for the time being.

Red Wings Recall Eaves

News: Patrick Eaves was recalled from AHL Grand Rapids on Friday.
Analysis: The Red Wings are short on forwards at the moment with Stephen Weiss, Henrik Zetterberg and Darren Helm all out with injuries, creating an opportunity for Patrick Eaves to earn some ice time while he's with the parent club. Eaves played in just three games before he was placed on waivers in mid-November.

Red Wings' Eaves Clears Waivers

News: Patrick Eaves cleared waivers Friday and was assigned to AHL Grand Rapids, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: With Patrick Eaves now off the active roster, the Red Wings will receive $925,000 in cap relief, clearing enough cap space for Jonathan Ericsson to return to the lineup Friday from injured reserve. Eaves played in just three games for the Red Wings after he was activated from long-term injured reserve Oct. 26 following an ankle injury sustained in training camp.

Red Wings Place Eaves On Waivers

News: Patrick Eaves was placed on waivers Thursday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: The move was made to clear cap room for Jonathan Ericsson's return, as the defenseman is set to come back from IR on Friday. Patrick Eaves has appeared in only three games for the Red Wings this season, seeing only light ice time on the third or fourth line.

Detroit's Eaves To Return To Lineup Wednesday

News: Patrick Eaves (ankle) will make his season debut Wednesday, the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: With Johan Franzen out, Patrick Eaves is coming back at a good time. Although he will provide some grit, Eaves doesn't score enough to make a difference fantasy-wise.

Red Wings' Eaves Activated From LTIR

News: Patrick Eaves (ankle) was activated from long-term injured reserve Saturday, Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News reports.
Analysis: Patrick Eaves will still be a healthy scratch Saturday against the Rangers, but should make his season debut at some point next week. He'll more than likely find himself on the fourth line on most nights.

Red Wings' Eaves Deemed Healthy

News: Patrick Eaves (ankle) has been deemed ready to play in games, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Although he's now fully healthy, coach Mike Babcock doesn't plan to have him dress for Saturday's game, so he'll retain the "injured reserve" tag for now. Expect to see Patrick Eaves make his season debut at some point next week.

Wings' Eaves Targeting Late-October Return

News: Patrick Eaves (ankle) is targeting an Oct. 26 return, MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Slowly but surely, Patrick Eaves is progressing from the sprained MCL and sprained ankle he suffered in a collision in practice back on Sept. 19. He's skated with the team the past two days, but said after Wednesday's practice that he's still dealing with some pain. Since he's on long-term IR, he must sit out a minimum of 10 games, though it sounds like he's aiming to make it back for the team's 12th game of the season.

Wings' Eaves Practices

News: Patrick Eaves participated in practice Wednesday, Chuck Pleiness of the Macomb Daily reports.
Analysis: The winger is still on long term injured reserve, but appears to be making good progress. Patrick Eaves recorded two goals and six assists in 34 games with the Red Wings last season.

Red Wings' Eaves Placed On Long-Term IR

News: Patrick Eaves (ankle/knee) has been placed on long-term injured reserve and will thus miss a minimum of 10 games.
Analysis: It sounds like the original timetable of 2-4 weeks can be thrown away, as Patrick Eaves won't be eligible to play until Oct. 23. He'll be five weeks removed from the initial diagnosis if he does in fact make it back for that night's contest against the Senators. Once you consider the possibility that Eaves may not be ready for the game, his already-limited fantasy value takes a pretty big hit. The eight-year veteran scored just eight points in 34 games last season, and he's never been a strong source of points, plus-minus or PIM.

Red Wings' Eaves (Ankle/Knee) Out 2-4 Weeks

News: GM Ken Holland said Patrick Eaves would likely miss two-to-four weeks with a slight ankle sprain and an MCL sprain, the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: Patrick Eaves first sustained the injury after falling on the ice during Thursday's practice, requiring crutches as he moved around the locker room afterwards. The injury puts Eaves' availability in question for the season opener and certainly won't help his chances of winning a role on the Wings' third or fourth line.
