2018 Fantasy Outlook
Eliciting comparisons to Calgary's Sean Monahan and even a flashier Nick Bjugstad of the Panthers, Rasmussen is an intriguing prospect for the Red Wings. The 19-year-old power forward is listed at 6-foot-6, 221 pounds but scouts say he's surprisingly nimble and doesn't let his massive frame get in the way of production. A quick peek at his junior numbers is enough to leave prospective fantasy owners drooling over Rasmussen; he amassed 81 goals and 76 assists over 161 games for the WHL Tri-City Americans between 2014-18 and captained the club during an abbreviated run at the 2018 WHL Cup, notching 33 points through the third round against Everett. He's exempt from waivers with two years left on an entry-level contract, and Rasmussen should transcend keeper/dynasty interest since he figures to crack the Opening Night roster with Detroit.

January 21, 2019
Rasmussen (hamstring) is not expected to play Tuesday in Edmonton, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
When asked about Rasmussen's status ahead of Tuesday's matchup with the Oilers, head coach Jeff Blashill said: "I don't foresee him playing [Tuesday]." It's not officially official, but don't expect the 19-year-old to suit up until after the All-Star break. Rasmussen has missed the last seven games with a hamstring injury.
