Red Wings' Joe Veleno: Tallies to close season

Veleno scored in Friday's season finale, a 5-3 win over the Devils. This was Veleno's first point since March 22. The rookie had gone 18 straight games without a goal or an assist, and he was minus-8 over that span. Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill tested Veleno at various spots on the lineup, including a top-line role near the finish line, but he was unable to build a meaningful offensive streak, finishing the year with eight goals and seven assists through 66 games. It may be too early to write him off, but this 30th overall pick from 2018 is getting long in the tooth as far as prospects are concerned.

Red Wings' Joe Veleno: Opens scoring in loss

Veleno scored a goal and added three hits in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Kraken. Veleno opened the scoring at 13:18 of the second period on a feed from Dylan Larkin just after the Red Wings killed a penalty. The 22-year-old Veleno had picked up three assists in the eight games since he last scored. The young center has six tallies, 13 points, 47 shots on net, 66 hits, 20 PIM and a minus-6 rating in 46 outings. With the Red Wings mostly healthy up front, Veleno is likely to remain in a bottom-six role.

Red Wings' Joe Veleno: Secures helper in loss

Veleno registered an assist in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Panthers. Veleno drew a faceoff with Tyler Bertuzzi tracking down the loose puck and flinging it into the cage, but it wasn't nearly enough for the Wings as they were served a punishing loss on the road. With five goals and the same number of assists through 40 games, Veleno is developing into a quality offensive threat, though he's only 22 years old and bench boss Jeff Blashill still has the training wheels on the young pivot.

Red Wings' Joe Veleno: Earns two points in loss

Veleno recorded a goal and an assist in Saturday's 10-7 loss to the Maple Leafs. Veleno has chronically shuffled between the AHL and NHL and playing time on the big stage will be harder to come by for the 22-year-old once Jakub Vrana returns from his shoulder injury. However, Veleno is skilled offensively and known for his rigid work ethic, paving the way for additional opportunities should he continue to play like he did Saturday.

Joe Veleno Recalled by Detroit

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday recalled center Joe Veleno from the Grand Rapids Griffins. Veleno returned to Grand Rapids for the second time in the span of two weeks on Feb. 18, as he was sent to the Griffins during the NHL All-Star break from Feb. 3-8. Veleno totaled seven points (3-4—7) in four outings during that span with the Griffins, including a career-high three points (1-2—3) on Feb. 5 against Ontario. Veleno’s active four-game point streak with Grand Rapids is tied for a career high. The center has been featured on the Red Wings’ roster from Nov. 15-Feb. 3 and Feb. 8-17, logging seven points (4-3—7) in 34 contests. Veleno, a third-year pro, has appeared in 39 games with Detroit throughout his career and has totaled eight points (5-3—8) and 20 penalty minutes. The 22-year-old has skated in 11 contests with Grand Rapids this campaign and recorded four penalty minutes and 10 points (6-4—10). Veleno tied a career-high for goals in a game when he lit the lamp twice on Oct. 16 at Milwaukee in a 7-3 defeat. The former first-round draft choice has spent much of his pro career with the Griffins, recording 36 points (18-18—36) and 26 penalty minutes in 69 outings.
