  • Red Wings' Klim Kostin: First goal since overcoming injury

    Koston scored in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Hurricanes.

    Kostin, a rugged fourth-line winger, missed 12 straight games with an upper-body injury before his return against the Panthers on Wednesday, which was a 3-2 overtime win. Working in his debut campaign with Detroit, Kostin has three goals to go along with an assist and 41 hits through 25 contests. The 24-year-old doesn't see the ice nearly enough to warrant a look in fantasy hockey -- he'll be occasionally relegated to the press box as a healthy scratch.

  • Red Wings' Klim Kostin: Removed from IR

    Kostin (upper body) was activated from injured reserve Sunday.

    Kostin is available to return from an 11-game absence in Sunday's contest against Toronto. However, it's unclear at this time if he will play or be a healthy scratch. Kostin has registered two goals, one assist, 19 shots on net, 29 PIM and 38 hits over 23 outings this campaign.

  • Red Wings' Klim Kostin: Unavailable Thursday

    Kostin (upper body) will miss Thursday's game against Edmonton, but he might be ready for Saturday versus LA or Sunday's contest in Toronto, per Ansar Khan of MLive.com.

    Kostin has two goals, three points, 29 PIM and 38 hits in 23 contests this season. He hasn't played since Dec. 18 and will likely serve on the fourth line when he recovers from his injury.

  • Red Wings' Klim Kostin: Placed on IR

    Kostin (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

    In a corresponding move, Detroit recalled Austin Czarnik from AHL Grand Rapids under emergency conditions. Kostin, who was injured in Monday's 4-3 loss to Anaheim, will be out of action for at least the next three games following his move to the IR list. He has chipped in three points, 29 PIM, 19 shots on goal and 38 hits over 23 games this season.

  • Red Wings' Klim Kostin: Exits Monday's game

    Kostin (upper body) will not return to Monday's game against Anaheim.

    Kostin logged 6:30 of ice time with two shots on goal and two PIM before leaving the game. An update on his status should be available before Wednesday's matchup in Winnipeg. He has just three points in 23 games this season.

  • Red Wings' Klim Kostin: Ready to return

    Kostin (undisclosed) will be activated off injured reserve and return to action Saturday versus Philadelphia, Daniella Bruce of the Red Wings' official site reports.

    Kostin will likely return to a fourth-line role Saturday versus the Flyers. He's picked up just three points through 21 games this season.

  • Red Wings' Klim Kostin: Considered day-to-day

    Kostin (undisclosed) has been labeled day-to-day by the team and won't be ready to play against Carolina on Thursday.

    Kostin will miss his fourth straight game due to his undisclosed injury but the fact that he is considered day-to-day bodes well for a return in the short term. Considering the winger managed just one goal and one assist in his last 11 contests, he probably shouldn't be expected to offer much in the way of fantasy value once cleared to play.

  • Red Wings' Klim Kostin: Designated for IR

    Kostin landed on injured reserve Monday with an undisclosed injury retroactive to Dec. 7.

    Kostin was already sidelined for one game versus Ottawa on Saturday and will now be out of action for at least three more. Prior to getting hurt, the Russian winger was struggling offensively with just one point in his last nine games. Still, with Dylan Larkin (undisclosed) and J.T. Compher (undisclosed) also going on injured reserve, the Red Wings find themselves extremely thin at forward.

  • Red Wings' Klim Kostin: Sneaks in apple

    Kostin contributed an assist in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Kostin only saw 8:04 of ice time, but that was long enough for the fourth-line bruiser to deliver the helper along with a pair of hits. Last season, Kostin managed a career-high 21 points through 57 games in a similar capacity for Edmonton, though he's unlikely to captivate the masses in fantasy hockey given his bottom-six role and the fact that forward is the deepest position.

  • Red Wings' Klim Kostin: Nets first of the season

    Kostin tallied a goal, three hits and two shots in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Rangers.

    Kostin cut the Red Wings' deficit to 5-2 in the third period, beating Jonathan Quick with a nifty backhander for his first marker of the season. While the goal was Kostin's first point of the season, the 24-year-old winger has provided some physicality in a consistent bottom-six role, notching 16 hits and nine penalty minutes through his first 10 games with Detroit.

  • Red Wings' Klim Kostin: Set to play Thursday

    Kostin (undisclosed) is expected to return to the lineup Thursday versus Winnipeg, per Max Bultman of The Athletic.

    Kostin missed three straight games due to the injury. He has no points, seven PIM and six hits in four outings in 2023-24. Kostin skated on the fourth line alongside Austin Czarnik and Christian Fischer during Wednesday's practice, according to Ansar Khan of MLive.com, so that's the role Kostin is likely to occupy in his return Thursday.

  • Red Wings' Klim Kostin: Remains unavailable

    Kostin (undisclosed) won't play Tuesday against Seattle, according to Ansar Khan of MLive.com.

    Kostin will miss a third straight contest due to an undisclosed injury. If he can't play Thursday versus Winnipeg, and Jeff Petry (upper body) is unavailable as well, Detroit will need to bring someone up from AHL Grand Rapids.

  • Red Wings' Klim Kostin: Not playing Sunday

    Kostin (undisclosed) won't play Sunday against Calgary, Max Bultman of The Athletic reports.

    Kostin, who is considered day-to-day, also didn't play in Saturday's 5-2 win over Ottawa. He has been credited with three shots on goal, one blocked shot and six hits in four outings this season.

  • Red Wings' Klim Kostin: Inks two-year deal

    Kostin signed a two-year contract with the Red Wings on Saturday.

    Kostin was not given a qualifying offer Friday but things quickly came together between the two sides. Kostin, who was acquired from the Oilers on Thursday, will have a cap hit of $2 million per season. He had 11 goals and 21 points in 57 games with the Oilers last season. Look for Kostin to fit in as a bottom-six forward with the Red Wings next season.

  • Klim Kostin: Not given qualifying offer

    Kostin didn't receive a qualifying offer from Detroit, so he's set to become an unrestricted free agent Saturday, per Max Bultman of The Athletic.

    Kostin and Kailer Yamamoto were acquired by Detroit from Edmonton on Thursday in exchange for future considerations. The Red Wings also put Yamamoto on unconditional waivers Friday for the purpose of buying out his contract, so it's entirely plausible that the Red Wings won't have either of the two players they just acquired for the start of the 2023-24 campaign. Kostin had 11 goals, 21 points, 66 PIM and 157 hits in 57 outings with Edmonton last season.

  • Red Wings' Klim Kostin: Shipped to Red Wings

    Kostin and Kailer Yamamoto were dealt to Detroit from Edmonton on Thursday in exchange for future considerations.

    Kostin had 11 goals, 21 points, 66 PIM and 157 hits in 57 contests with Edmonton while averaging 10:04 of ice time last season. He is expected to remain in a bottom-six spot next season, but Kostin might see at least a modest increase in his role thanks to this move.

  • Oilers' Klim Kostin: Sets up opening tally

    Kostin notched an assist and two hits in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Golden Knights in Game 4.

    Kostin picked up his first point of the second round when he set up Nick Bjugstad's wraparound goal in the first period. While far from consistent, Kostin's been a surprising source of depth offense with three goals and two assists through 10 playoff outings. He's added 34 hits, nine shots on net, nine PIM and a plus-3 rating as a physical presence in the Oilers' bottom six.

  • Oilers' Klim Kostin: Surprising source of offense

    Kostin scored twice, added an assist, went plus-3 and logged two hits in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Kings in Game 6.

    Kostin put the Oilers ahead twice with his pair of goals, and he also helped out on Kailer Yamamoto's series-clinching tally. Playing in a bottom-six role, Kostin doesn't get many opportunities to make an impact on offense. He made his presence felt with three goals, one assist, seven shots on net and 20 hits through six contests in this first-round series.

  • Oilers' Klim Kostin: Nets game-winning goal

    Kostin scored a goal on two shots, added five hits and went plus-2 in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Kings in Game 2.

    Kostin snapped his four-game point drought with his tally early in the third period, which stood as the game-winner. The 23-year-old established himself with 21 points, 157 hits, 66 PIM and 56 shots on net in 57 regular-season games, primarily in a bottom-six role. He'll see similar usage in the postseason, though his physical play could give him some interest in fantasy, especially if the Oilers make a deep playoff run.

  • Oilers' Klim Kostin: Two points in Wednesday's win

    Kostin scored a goal on two shots, added an assist and went plus-2 in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Ducks.

    Kostin opened the scoring at 9:36 of the second period, and he also set up Nick Bjugstad's goal a few minutes later. Prior to Wednesday, Kostin was stuck in a 10-game point drought, and he hadn't scored since March 1. The winger is up to 11 tallies ,21 points, 56 shots on net, 147 hits, 62 PIM and a plus-12 rating through 54 appearances.
