2019 Fantasy Outlook
Glendening was one of the few bright spots for the Red Wings in the 2018-19 campaign, as he established career highs in points (23), hits (198) and blocked shots (102) through 78 games. While the tireless winger struggles with puck possession, his defensive focus and off-the-charts compete level is readily apparent to the Detroit fanbase. Best of all, since he's not a popular name outside of Motown, Glendening can be viewed as a potential free-agency pickup for owners left thin at the forward position at the conclusion of a given fantasy draft.

Glendening (wrist) is expected to return to the lineup for Saturday's game against San Jose, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
ANALYSIS
Glendening has missed Detroit's last 11 games due to a wrist injury, but he should be ready to resume his usual bottom-six duties against the Sharks. The 30-year-old American has picked up three points in 10 games this campaign.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2017
2014
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.
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.
