Zidlicky collected a power-play assist in Saturday's loss to the Flyers.

Zidlicky is off to a strong start with the Red Wings since coming over from the Devils at the trade deadline back on Mar. 2. In six games, he's tallied two goals (one of which was a game-winner) and two power-play helpers, providing the puck-moving ability the Red Wings were in desperate need of on their third defensive pairing.

Zidlicky (leg) will play Sunday against the Bruins, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

Zidlicky was dealing with a bit of a charlie horse following Friday's contest against the Flames, but was expected to play. That is indeed the case, as the blueliner continues to gel with his new teammates, and has already tallied a goal with his new club over just two games.

Zidlicky was absent from Saturday's practice due to what coach Mike Babcock described as a "charley horse," MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.

Zidlicky said that he still anticipates that Zidlicky will play Sunday against the Bruins, but his status may not be verified until the Red Wings complete their morning skate. The veteran blueliner, who was acquired by the Red Wings prior to Monday's trade deadline, has already made an immediate impact on the blue line, tallying the game-winning power-play goal in his first game with the team earlier this week.

The Red Wings have acquired Zidlicky from the Devils in exchange for a third-round pick in 2016, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.

The Wings, seemingly in position to make a playoff run, were a bit inexperienced toward the bottom of their defense pairings, but the addition of the veteran Zidlicky solves that and gives them a right-handed shot from the point. Given the price, this is a good stretch run signing for Detroit. We'll see if Zidlicky starts to pick up power play time in his new digs.

Zidlicky picked up an assist in Tuesday's victory over the Senators.

It's a good start to the month for Zidlicky, who accrued no goals and two assists in 11 January contests. Even at age 38, Zidlicky still offers a tinge more of puck-moving ability than the typical NHL blueliner, but his appeal is probably limited to mid-sized or deeper leagues at this point. With 21 points in 51 games thus far, Zidlicky is projected to fall safely short of last season's totals of 12 goals and 30 assists.

Zidlicky chipped in an assist in Tuesday's win over the Sabres.

It's just the second point in the last 10 games for the aging blueliner. While last season's total of 12 goals is probably unattainable at this point, Zidlicky could still challenge for his second consecutive 40-point season if he's able to pick up the pace in the second half. There's probably still a place for him in mid-sized fantasy leagues.

Zidlicky picked up a goal and an assist in Monday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Islanders.

Zidlicky is up to four goals and 13 assists on the sason, with five of those points coming in the last seven games. At over 0.5 points per-game, he makes for a serviceable option on the blue line in most formats.

Zidlicky contributed a pair of assists in Saturday's loss to the Flames.

Although the points were Zidlicky's first in five games, the 37-year-old has impressed lately, recording a plus-7 rating over his last five games. He has delivered a solid three goals and 11 points in 21 games this season, putting him on pace for another 40-point campaign. Use him well.
