Red Wings Prospects

The 2018 NHL Entry Draft has had promising early returns for the Detroit Red Wings. Filip Zadina, who the team got sixth overall, is unquestionably the headliner as his flashy offensive prowess has fans envisioning him filling opponents' nets with pucks. Likewise, Halifax Mooseheads' defenseman Jared McIsaac looks like a steal at 36th overall after putting up 62 points in 53 games in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) this season. Furthermore, Swedish forward Jonatan Berggren (32nd overall) is a tantalizing talent who had his season cut short by injuries. While all of these players provide hope for an organization that is currently in flux, Drummondville Voltigeurs center Joseph Veleno (30th overall) has rocketed toward the top of the Red Wings' prospect rankings and is proving that he is a core piece of the team's future going forward. Veleno's Stint with the Sea Dogs The slick pivot started his tenure with the Saint John Sea Dogs at the tender age of 15 after...

Free Agents

Another season has come and gone, and the Detroit Red Wings find themselves on the outside of the playoff dance yet again. After more than two decades of dominance, the team has fallen on hard times, resulting in three straight seasons without playoff hockey in the Motor City. Luckily, the team has been busy during their lengthened offseason. They locked up goaltender Jimmy Howard to a one-year contract extension, agreed to a two-year deal with bench boss Jeff Blashill, and most notably, brought back Steve Yzerman to be the new general manager of the team. With these transactions already out of the way, one of the next orders of business is determining the plan of attack for the team ahead of July 1. The Red Wings have several in-house free agents they need to deal with before looking at the marquee players available on the open market. This piece will address the team's free agents and the likely outcome for each player. Without further ado, let us take a look at the players...
