Marco Rossi Could Be An Option For The Wings With The #4 Pick

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

When he was younger, Marco Rossi’s favorite player was Pavel Datsyuk. Anyone who could dangle the puck like that was right up Rossi’s alley.

While other children knew they might be rewarded with a trip to a favorite restaurant if they did as their parents wanted and scored a goal, Rossi’s father, Michael, urged his son to keep his head up and focus on making good plays.

That’s the skill set propelling Rossi to be regarded as one of the top prospects in the 2020 draft, and a leading candidate for Detroit Red Wings general manager Steve Yzerman to consider at the fourth overall pick.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
