2018 Fantasy Outlook
Glendening stacked 11 goals and 19 total points against a career-worst rating (minus-14) through 69 games in the 2017-18 campaign. Of course, the industrious forward only averaged 13:12 of ice time in a fourth-line capacity, so he was indubitably left off most fantasy rosters. The Red Wings have the 29-year-old under contract through 2020-11 at a reasonable cap hit of $1.8 million per season, and he'll be expected to boost the team's 24th-ranked penalty kill. Glendening's offseason wrist operation went without a hitch, therefore, he's slated to be ready for training camp in preparation for his sixth NHL season of exclusivity in Detroit. Read Past Outlooks

Glendening is likely to stick with the Red Wings through the rebuild, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
ANALYSIS
As a team permitting 2.75 goals per game (26th in the NHL), the Wings have struggled to keep the puck out of the net even with Glendening, one of the team's premier line defenders, in tow. It wouldn't be prudent for the team to sell him off at the trade deadline, as the left winger only costs $1.8 million per season and is on the books through 2020-21. Besides, with nine goals and 11 helpers through 57 games, Glendening needs only two more points to establish a new career high.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2014
A physical, blue-collar winger, Glendening hails from Michigan and naturally fits in the Motor City. The Red Wings have the versatile penalty killer under contract through the 2020-21 campaign, costing the club a reasonable $1.8 million per season. However, the obvious downside to Glendening from a fantasy perspective is his limited ice time, as he was unable to average more than 15 minutes per contest in his first four NHL seasons, plus he spent time in the summer rehabbing from a fractured ankle that required surgery. The 28-year-old's only worth a look if your virtual roster runs extremely deep or puts a special emphasis on defensive stats like hits and blocked shots.
Glendening was a decent fill-in for the injury ravaged Wings in 2013-14, scoring seven points in 56 games and adding a goal in the playoffs. That being said, there are likely too many centers ahead of Glendening to start the season anywhere but Grand Rapids in the fall.
