More Rankings Of Detroit’s Prospects

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Today, a look at Nos. 11 through 15.

12. Filip Larsson, goaltender

Height/weight: 6-2/195

Drafted: Sixth round 2016 (No. 167)

2019-20 club: Grand Rapids (AHL)/Toledo (ECHL)

2019-20 stats: Grand Rapids 7 GP, 2-5-0, 4.01 GAA, .843 save percentage; Toledo 10 GP, 4-6-0, 2.72 GAA, .910 save percentage.

Touted as the franchise’s potential goalie of the future following outstanding seasons in the USHL (Tri-City) and college (Denver), Larsson’s pro initiation was rough. He struggled with the Griffins before being demoted to Toledo. He fared better in the ECHL, but the season showed how difficult a transition goalies can have from juniors/college to the pros. It will take some time to develop him, which is not unexpected. He is on loan to Swedish club Almtuna due to the pandemic.

11. Robert Mastrosimone, left wing

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. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
