What Is Tyler Bertuzzi Worth to the Red Wings?

April 4th, 2020 The year is 2013. The Detroit Red Wings and their offense are led by the "euro-twins" Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg. Alongside that duo on the top line is Justin Abdelkader — a "piano puller" according to Datsyuk. Fast forward to 2020, and the Red Wings' top line features a new piano...

NHL Entry Draft

Unless the NHL changes the draft lottery rules in the face of the ongoing season suspension, the Detroit Red Wings will pick in the top four of the NHL entry draft. By now, names like Alexis Lafrenière and Quinton Byfield are very familiar to Red Wings fans. However, the organization's success in the 2020 draft will be determined by their haul in the second round. Related: Red Wings' All-Time Greatest Lines The Red Wings hold three picks in the second round: their own (locked-in as the 32nd pick), the Edmonton Oilers' and Washington Capitals'. While the two picks acquired in trades are likely to wind up at or near the end of the second round, there are sure to be some solid, if not spectacular players available. Finding these players will ensure that the Red Wings maximize the effects this draft has on their rebuild. As is the case with the second round, it's anyone's guess who will be available at each pick. There are always players who rise and fall in the draft. That...

Red Wings History

March 28 is a significant date in National Hockey League history with some of the biggest names and greatest players to ever take the ice having historic moments. Between some of the top goal-scorers and the best netminders hitting major milestones, this date belongs in the Hall of Fame. Gretzky Sets the All-Time Mark & More We could very easily rename this daily series “Things Wayne Gretzky Did Today” as it seems that the Great One made history every time he laced up skates. March 28 was a particularly eventful day in Gretzky’s career. On March 28, 1982, Gretzky scored his 92nd and final goal of the season in the Edmonton Oilers’ 6-2 win at the Los Angeles Kings. His record still stands today and it shattered the previous record of 76 goals set by Phil Esposito of the Boston Bruins during the 1970-71 season. In typical fashion, he was a bit upset he didn’t score more goals. Gretzky's 92-goal season is still the record. (Photo by Bruce Bennett...

Red Wings History

One of the greatest defensemen to ever play in the National Hockey League had a handful of big moments on March 27. Also, a legendary run began in Vancouver after a suspension is handed down. Finally, we take a look at all the firsts that occurred on this date throughout the years. Bourque Loved Playing on March 27 Ray Bourque had many big moments during his Hall of Fame career and he had a handful of important ones on this date. On March 27, 1980, he set an NHL record for the most points by a rookie defenseman when he picked up his 61st point of the season in 7-1 Boston Bruins win over the St. Louis Blues. He finished the season with 65 points, but his record only lasted one year because Larry Murphy scored 76 points as a rookie the following season. Speaking of Murphy, he became just the fourth defenseman in league history to score 1,000 points on March 27, 1996. March 27 was very kind to Bourque.

Red Wings History

One of the greatest goaltenders to ever play the game set a record that will likely never be broken on this date. A hockey legend won his first and only scoring title and an American-born player scored 100 points for the first time in National Hockey League history. Tony O Sets the Bar High Tony Esposito was one of the best goaltenders of his generation. During his Hall of Fame career, which spanned from 1968 to 1984, he won 423 games to go along with his 2.93 goals-against average (GAA) and .906 SV%. He was a five-time All-Star and took home three Vezina Trophies for being the league’s top goaltender. After playing 13 games with the Montreal Canadiens during the 1968-69 season, he was claimed by the Chicago Blackhawks in the Intra-League Draft. On March 26, 1970, Esposito shutout the Detroit Red Wings to pick up his 14th shutout of the season, breaking Harry Lumley’s “modern” record for most shutouts in a season. He finished the season with 15 shutouts, which...
