  • The Detroit News: Red Wings draft picks get chance to learn about NHL life with development camp

    Detroit -- Talk about the whirlwind for the young players just selected in the NHL Entry Draft.

    You've had a few days to enjoy the feeling of being picked by an NHL team -- and now you'll get an understanding of what it'll take to get there.

    The Red Wings open development camp Tuesday at Little Caesars Arena, providing an education on NHL life to recent draft picks.

  • Abel to Yzerman: Development Camp Time

    from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

    The majority of picks from last weekend's draft will attend, as well as 2018 first-round picks Filip Zadina and Joe Veleno, signed free-agent prospects and undrafted free agent invitees from college, junior or European leagues.

    "We get to know the kids a little bit and try to set them up and educate them if they need it," general manager Steve Yzerman said. "They all have varying experience as far as training and eating properly, so they are at different stages from different countries and backgrounds. We want to educate them on what they need to be doing on and off the ice this summer.

  • Abel to Yzerman: A Look At Detroit's Draft

    from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

    The Detroit Red Wings' previous four draft classes feature five players who have played a combined 185 NHL games thus far.

    Several more are certain to enter the league in the next few years, but it takes time.

    So it will be a while before Steve Yzerman's first draft as Red Wings general manager can be evaluated.

    "The danger is we all want our draft picks playing as soon as possible; it helps justify the picks a little bit," Yzerman told media at the draft.

    There's a fun annual scene at the conclusion of the NHL draft when team personnel rush off the floor, many headed to the airport.

    The Detroit Red Wings' hockey operations people at the weekend event at Rogers Arena were among the fleet of foot, but, then, they'd just spent roughly eight hours spread across two days picking 11 players to add to the organization.

  • Abel to Yzerman: Day 2 Pick Of The NHL Draft By The Detroit Red Wings

    from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News (Kulfan is adding to this as picks come in)...

    The Red Wings went with another defenseman with their first pick Saturday.

    In Round 2 of the NHL Entry Draft, the Red Wings selected Antti Tuomisto, a 6-foot-4, 194-pound defenseman.

    Like Moritz Seider, Friday's surprise first-round selection, Tuomisto is a bit of reach by some scouting services' opinions.

    Tuomisto was ranked No. 15 by NHL Central Scouting's European skaters, and 86th overall by Eliteprospects.com.

    Tuomisto is said to have a hard, accurate shot and can make a good, accurate first pass out of his zone.

  • Detroit Free Press: Detroit Red Wings on NHL draft, Day 2: D Gustav Berlund goes in Round 6

    VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- The Detroit Red Wings used the opening round of the 2019 NHL draft to add a mobile, puck-moving defenseman to their rebuild.

    This is the first draft with Steve Yzerman as general manager. He enters Saturday's conclusion holding nine picks spread across rounds two through seven. Three of the picks are in the second round, at 35th (the Wings' own), 54th (the Islanders' pick via Vegas, part of the 2018 Tomas Tatar trade), and 60th (from San Jose and part of the Gustav Nyquist trade). The rest of the picks come at 66th, 96th, 128th, 143rd, 159th and 190th.

    DETROIT - The Detroit Red Wings today drafted 10 players during the second day of the 2019 NHL Entry Draft at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia. The Red Wings held three selections in the second round, adding defenseman Antti Tuomisto (35th overall), center Robert Mastrosimone (54th overall) and defenseman Albert Johansson (60th overall), before choosing right wing Albin Grewe in the third round (66th overall), which marked their fifth pick in the first 66 selections of the draft. In the mid-rounds of the draft, the Red Wings selected right wing Ethan Phillips (97th overall) in the fourth round and chose defenseman Cooper Moore (128th overall) in the fifth round.

    The News' Ted Kulfan introduces you to the newest Detroit Red Wings.

    <strong>Moritz Seider</strong>

    Pick: No. 6 overall (Round 1)

    Position: Defense

    Height/weight: 6-foot-3/208 pounds

    Last season: Addler Mannheim (DEL/Germany) -- 29 games, 2 goals, 4 assists

    Scouting report: Was a stunner of a pick initially -- Seider was ranked the sixth-best prospect among Europeans on some scouting services -- but as you learn more, this could be a very shrew pick.

  • The Detroit News: Red Wings get a lift from draft being 'top-heavy' on defense

    Steve Yzerman discusses the team's picks and the process of his first draft as general manager of the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday. The Detroit News

    Vancouver, British Columbia - There are a lot of areas in the Red Wings organization that need to be upgraded.

    Defense might be the highest priority item.

    The Red Wings addressed that over the weekend at the NHL Draft. Of their 11 picks overall - they acquired an extra pick Saturday in Buffalo - they selected five defensemen, including three of their first four overall selections.

  • Detroit Free Press: Hockey stick from missing for 39 years resurfaces in Michigan

    ST. CLAIR SHORES, Mich. -- A hockey stick used by a 1980 Team USA hockey player from Michigan has resurfaced nearly four decades after it disappeared.

    The Macomb Daily reports the stick belonged to Mark Wells who won an Olympic gold medal. He gave the stick to the St. Clair Shores Civic Arena that year, the last time it was seen.

    Mayor Kip Walby announced this month that the stick had been returned. He declined to give details.

    More on freep.com:

    He says he's happy to have it back and he plans to display it at the Civic Arena as was intended 39 years ago.

  • Abel to Yzerman: Defense Addressed

    from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

    The Red Wings addressed that over the weekend at the NHL Draft. Of their 11 picks overall - they acquired an extra pick Saturday in Buffalo - they selected five defensemen, including three of their first four overall selections.

    The five defensemen collectively have good size - something, it appears, many organizations took account of watching St. Louis' and Boston's big bodies in the Stanley Cup Finals.

    "As a staff, we identified this as being a pretty deep draft defensively," said Tyler Wright, the Wings' director of amateur scouting.

    VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Two Swedes drafted six spots apart could turn out to be steals for the Detroit Red Wings.

    Hakan Andersson, the Wings' director of European scouting, shared anecdotes about both Albert Johansson and Albin Grewe after the Wings wrapped up the 2019 NHL draft having made 11 selections. Antti Tuomisto headlined Saturday's haul as the Wings chose him 35th overall, selecting a second straight big defenseman who shoots right.
