Daley signed a three-year contract with the Red Wings on Saturday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports, adding that his deal is worth $3.178 million annually.

EDGE Analysis

The Red Wings suffered in a major way in terms of offensive production from the blue line last season. Case in point: Mike Green had 36 points himself, whereas the rest of the rearguards collectively added 77 combined goals and assists. Daley has averaged .31 points per game over a career that will be going on 15 years old -- most of his time had been spent with the Stars, plus he's enjoyed tours with the Blackhawks and two Stanley Cup-winning campaigns in a Penguins sweater -- and while he's more of a complementary fantasy option at this juncture, Detroit will certainly put his special teams acumen to good use. Danny DeKeyser has occasionally been miscast as a top-pairing defenseman in Detroit, so expect Daley to hold that spot.

Daley is unlikely to be back in Pittsburgh next season, Mark Madden of DK on Pittsburgh Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Daley has been a great fit with the Penguins since coming over from Chicago via trade, but it is a numbers game for general manager Jim Rutherford and the 33-year-old likely won't fit under the cap. Pittsburgh is already expected to designate the bulk of its approximately $19 million in cap space on Justin Schultz and Brian Dumoulin which leaves Daley out of the equation. According to Pierre LeBrun of TSN, Detroit and Boston appear to be the leading candidates for the Toronto native's signature.

Daley (lower body) will rejoin the lineup for Game 3 against the Senators, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Daley has missed each of the club's last four contests because of the lower-body issue, but appears ready to return. He doesn't provide a ton of offensive support, but does have an assist, 11 shots on goal and 12 blocked shots over 10 postseason contests in 2017, making him a potential asset in some playoff pools and daily formats. Daley will pair with Olli Maatta in the contest.

Daley (lower body) will take part in the warmup and then decide if he's ready to go for Game 3 against Ottawa, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The defenseman has missed the last four games, and if he's able to go, it would help bolster the depth of the Penguins' blue liners. However, his one point in 10 playoff games mean that he's not worth a look in most fantasy leagues.

Daley (lower body) wasn't able to suit up for Game 2 on Monday against Ottawa.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran rearguard was forced to miss his fourth straight contest with the ailment. The Penguins could be without fellow blueliner Justin Schulz after he departed Monday's victory with an injury, which could put additional pressure on Daley to return sooner than later. Game 3 goes Wednesday in Ottawa.

Daley (lower body) will be a game-time decision in Monday's Game 2 against Ottawa.

EDGE Analysis

Head coach Mike Sullivan said that "everybody will be a game-time decision," and while it may be a bit of an exaggeration, it does illuminate Daley's status a bit. After missing the last three games, if he does slot into the lineup, he may need a bit to get back up to speed, and considering he only has one point in 10 playoff games, he would be a risky fantasy play.

Daley (lower body) skated during Sunday's practice, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The defenseman has missed the last three games for Pittsburgh, so skating is a good sign that he's close to returning, and could return as early as Monday against Ottawa. With only one point in 12 playoff games, he's not the most offensive-minded blueliner, but his nine hits and 12 blocked shots in that span would give him utility in certain formats.

Daley (lower-body) is out for Saturday's Game 1 against the Senators.

EDGE Analysis

Daley has missed Pittsburgh's last two games, and he was unable to practice Friday as well. The Penguins will stick with the lineup from their last game with Daley still out.

Daley (lower body) wasn't at practice Friday and remains day-to-day, per coach Mike Sullivan.

EDGE Analysis

Daley absorbed a jarring hit from Capitals forward Tom Wilson in Game 5 of the conference semifinals, so he may still be feeling the affects of that play. However, fantasy owners should also be mindful of the fact that Daley underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in late February. The Penguins are sure to reevaluate the blueliner before Game 1 against the Senators on Saturday.

Daley (lower body) isn't in the lineup for Wednesday's Game 7 against the Capitals.

EDGE Analysis

Daley will miss a second consecutive game Wednesday, and there's been no indication that he's particularly close to returning to the Penguins' lineup, either. Chad Ruhwedel will once again slot into Daley's spot in Pittsburgh's lineup for Game 7.
