Top Mark Pysyk News

  • Red Wings' Mark Pysyk: Reinjures Achilles

    Pysyk has reportedly reinjured his surgically repaired Achilles, Frank Seravalli of DFO reports.

    Pysyk was already expected to be out until at least January, but this has the potential to be a serious -- and potential season-ending -- setback. The Red Wings have not officially commented on Pysyk's status, so it's unclear how much longer his recovery will stretch following this latest news.

  • Red Wings' Mark Pysyk: Won't return in 2022

    Pysyk (Achilles) is not expected back before January, Max Bultman of The Athletic reports Wednesday.

    Pysyk was always going to be sidelined long term following his Achilles injury, so this recovery timeline shouldn't come as a surprise. Even once cleared to play, Pysyk could struggle to break into the lineup over the likes of Gustav Lindstrom or Jordan Oesterle, though perhaps he would be willing to move to forward again to see more ice time. Pysyk figures to wind up on long-term injured reserve in order to provide the club with some cap relief.

  • Red Wings' Mark Pysyk: Undergoes Achilles procedure

    Pysyk had surgery to repair a torn Achilles on Monday and is expected to miss 4-6 months.

    Pysyk facing a 4-6 month absence would explain why the team went and signed Robert Hagg to a one-year deal. Even on the short end of Pysyk's recovery timeline, he wouldn't be available until late November. At this point, Pysyk probably doesn't offer enough fantasy upside in most formats to warrant holding on to him while he is sidelined.

  • Red Wings' Mark Pysyk: Earns one-year deal

    Pysyk signed a one-year, $850,000 contract with Detroit on Thursday.

    Pysyk has never reached the 20-point threshold in his 10-year NHL career, so fantasy players probably shouldn't be banking on him suddenly producing offensively with his new club. The blueliner also doesn't dish out a lot of hits, he logged 41 last season.

  • Sabres' Mark Pysyk: Scores equalizer Thursday

    Pysyk scored a goal on two shots in Thursday's 3-2 shootout win over the Wild.

    Pysyk one-timed a centering pass from Vinnie Hinostroza to tie the game at 2-2 in the third period. The goal was Pysyk's first of the season. He's at six points, 36 shots on net, 45 blocked shots and a plus-3 rating through 29 contests, mainly playing in a second- or third-pairing role.

  • Sabres' Mark Pysyk: Helpers in consecutive contests

    Pysyk produced an assist, three blocked shots, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 3-2 win over the Oilers.

    Pysyk has picked up two of his three helpers this year in the last two games. The 29-year-old blueliner isn't known to contribute much on offense -- his career high in points is 18 in 58 games when he was deployed as winger with the Panthers in 2019-20. He's added 18 blocks, 12 hits, 16 shots on net and a plus-3 rating in 13 outings this year.

  • Sabres' Mark Pysyk: Back in Buffalo

    Pysyk signed a one-year, $900,000 contract with the Sabres on Wednesday.

    Pysyk found little success with the Stars last year, posting just four points in 36 contests in a limited role. The 29-year-old began his NHL career in Buffalo, where he spent four seasons before joining the Panthers. Pysyk will likely see bottom-four minutes with the Sabres, although he also has experience as a bottom-six forward.

  • Stars' Mark Pysyk: Lights lamp in final frame

    Pysyk scored a goal on three shots and had two PIM in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Blackhawks.

    Pysyk pulled the Stars to within 3-2 early in the third period when he cleaned up a loose puck from the bottom of the right faceoff circle. It was just the third goal of the year for the veteran defenseman, although two of those have come in his last six contests.

  • Stars' Mark Pysyk: Provides big third-period goal

    Pysyk scored the game-tying goal and had four shots Saturday in a 2-1 overtime victory over the Red Wings.

    Pysyk was the only Dallas skater to log fewer than 10 minutes of ice time, but he picked up a critical goal 3:52 into the third period when he located a loose puck in the blue paint and swept it home to tie the game at 1-1. It was just the second goal of the season for Pysyk, who last lit the lamp Feb. 11 against Carolina. The depth utility player has three points and a plus-6 rating in 30 games on the year.

    The 29-year-old will return to the lineup after a four-game absence dealing with the lower-body issue. Pysyk has had a quiet season to this point, supplying two points, 29 hits and 14 blocks across 12:10 of average ice time in 28 appearances. He'll return to the lineup as the team's seventh defenseman for Thursday's clash.

  • Stars' Mark Pysyk: Out with lower-body injury

    Pysyk (lower body) won't play Thursday versus the Blue Jackets.

    Pysyk has only been a part-time player for the Stars over the last month, so his absence won't have much of a fantasy impact. Joel Hanley and Sami Vatanen will work on the third pairing with Pysyk out of action.

  • Stars' Mark Pysyk: Earns first assist of campaign

    Pysyk recorded an assist and two PIM in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Hurricanes.

    Pysyk's shot attempt in the first period was deflected by Andrew Cogliano for the opening tally. The 29-year-old Pysyk hasn't provided much scoring for the Stars with two points in 23 appearances. He's had an injury-riddled campaign, but even when healthy, the Alberta native doesn't figure to see more than a third-pairing role.

  • Stars' Mark Pysyk: Back from IR

    Pysyk (lower body) was activated off injured reserve Tuesday.

    Pysyk has missed the last six games. He'll be available for Tuesday's game versus the Lightning. Fantasy managers shouldn't be too concerned about Pysyk's return, as he's recorded just one point through 20 games this year.

  • Stars' Mark Pysyk: Surfaces on injured reserve

    Pysyk (lower body) has been placed on injured reserve retroactive to March 11.

    Pysyk was believed to be over the lower-body injury when he was deemed a healthy scratch Tuesday versus the Lightning, but he's apparently had a setback. With the retroactive designation, Pysyk will be eligible to be activated at any point going forward, as he's already missed the requisite three games and seven days of action. It's unlikely he'll be available for Sunday's game against the Predators.
