from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Larkin called it a “nagging injury, I don’t even call it an injury,” bothering his foot and heel.

“It’s just a thing going on with my foot and heel, (we’re) just trying to figure it out. It’s something that came up during training (over the summer), running, and trying to figure it out, to settle it own.

“I skated today and and it felt good. We’ll see what tomorrow feels like.”

It will be a random draw of people leaving a comment in the post, not THIS post, but the post that will go up when the book is closer to release.

Ansar Khan of Mlive…

“I thought Moritz did a good job,” Blashill said. “I thought it was a tough challenge. They had a pretty good lineup, certainly with (Jonathan) Toews and (Patrick) Kane, that’s two of the best players in the world. He was out there enough times against that group, and I thought he did a good job. I thought (Trevor Daley, his defense partner) did a good job of talking to him and helping him out through the process. It was a good first game.”

Green said Seider, the defenseman Detroit selected sixth overall this year, has great composure.

“He moves the puck well; he sees the ice well. He kind of has all the tools,” Green said. “Not only that, he’s a really good kid, willing to learn and listen. I think as any older guy and a right-handed defensemen myself, just trying to sort of help the development and growth as much as possible, because he’s going to be a heck of a player.

“The thing about the league now is everybody is looking for young right-handed defensemen. He’s got a great opportunity in front of him.”

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

Taro Hirose made an impression right away, even before he played in his first game for the Detroit Red Wings.

He’s in his first camp with the team since signing as a free agent in March, and, as he did late last season, he’s finding ways to make himself noticed. Hirose has a goal and an assist after two exhibition games, picking up where he left off last season when he chipped in seven points in his first 10 NHL games. He joined the Wings after three years at Michigan State, and quickly made a case he belonged.

“Every time he gets the puck, he is trying to make plays,” Dylan Larkin said Thursday. “It’s good to see. He’s crafty, he’s smart. He thinks a step ahead of the game.

“When he came in, we didn’t tell him about it, but he didn’t really look like a hockey player. It really looked like he’d never touched a weight in his life. Not saying that he wasn’t strong, but he put some time in the gym this summer, he was here working out and he looks fit and he looks great. He looks a little bit quicker out there and it just helps him move around the ice and find lanes, which he’s so good at using his brains to do.”
