New Faces At Detroit’s Practice

Ansar Khan tweets,

Jakub Vrana and Troy Stecher on the ice for the start of #RedWings practice in blue non-contact jerseys. Neither due back for at least a few weeks. Stecher out since Nov. 4 (wrist surgery), Vrana all season (shoulder surgery).

Vrana has progressed to doing some shooting and stuck-handling while skating with the fourth line.

Thomas Greiss back in practice after being out 10 days in COVID protocol but he’s been a spectator so far, so doesn’t look like he’ll be ready this weekend.

Can we please take Zadina off the 3rd line when Vrana returns?
Thanks in advance.

Not yet, they need Zadina to show something, really anything right now, as they are trying to raise his trade value—-I hope.

The kid needs a change of scenery worse than Paul Coffey after the 1996 Western Conf Finals.

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.
