Red Wings’ Jake Walman Is Proving His Worth

When the Detroit Red Wings traded defenseman Nick Leddy to the St. Louis Blues at last season’s trade deadline, the package the Red Wings received was filled with intrigue. First, they received a second round pick in the 2023 draft, a draft that is being characterized by its overall depth. Second, they received veteran forward Oskar Sundqvist, a player that has seamlessly fit into the Red Wings’ lineup and, more importantly, their locker room. The last piece, however, was perhaps the most intriguing. The third piece Detroit received was defenseman Jake Walman, a 26-year-old defenseman who had played just 57 games with the Blues since he was drafted in the third round of the 2014 draft.

Red Wings' Jake Walman: Extends point streak in loss

Walman scored his fifth goal of the season in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Blue Jackets. While Moritz Seider is the future on the blue line for Detroit, Walman is suddenly looking like a key piece as well. The 26-year-old has a point in four straight games, finding the back of the net in three of them, and over the last dozen contests he has four goals and seven points while seeing action on the second power-play unit. He's also chipped in 14 PIM, 16 hits, 27 blocked shots, 32 shots on net and a plus-5 rating over that stretch, production that makes him a fantasy asset in plenty of formats.

Red Wings' Jake Walman: Secures new deal

Walman (shoulder) signed a one-year, $1.05 million contract with Detroit on Wednesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports. Walman was headed for an arbitration hearing but instead agreed to settle with the club on a new deal. Perhaps most importantly for the blueliner, his new contract is a one-way pact, which means it will be harder for the club to move him between the NHL and AHL. WIth Walman expected to miss the start of the season due to his shoulder issue, he may be hard-pressed to secure regular minutes in 2022-23.

St. Louis Blues 2021-22 Report Cards: Jake Walman

The St. Louis Blues 2021-22 season represented a major transition for the franchise. No longer a stout defensive team built from the blueline out, they finished second in the NHL in goals scored, with nine forwards recording 20-plus goals. Though the season came to an end in a six-game defeat by the Colorado Avalanche in the second round, there are plenty of highs and lows to reflect on. In this series, we’ll evaluate each player who played 10 or more games with the team (as well as the head coach and general manager), grading their individual performance and looking at their future with the team.

Red Wings' Jake Walman: Garners point in finale

Walman added an assist in the season finale Friday, contributing to a 5-3 win over the Devils. Walman started his third season with the Blues, adding six points through 32 games, but a trade to the Wings afforded him an expanded role and he pitched in four assists, 26 hits and 32 blocked shots through 19 contests. He does have some offensive flair to his game, but coach Jeff Blashill sent him to the ice in the defensive zone 53 percent of the time which was a change of pace from what Walman was accustomed to in St. Louis. Wallman is a restricted free agent ahead of the 2022-23 campaign.
