This Time Dennis Cholowski Will Play In Vancouver

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

...The rookie defenseman had been struggling in his own zone but was shocked when coach Jeff Blashill scratched him against the Canucks, knowing it was a special game for Cholowski and his family.

“The past few games I had made a few mistakes and I was like, ‘I got to pick my game up a little bit,’ but I didn’t expect it,” Cholowski said.

“Big wake-up call, eye-opener, however you want to call it. It was tough, but I think it only made me better and stronger. I came back this year with a good attitude and a positive mindset.”

Cholowski’s much-anticipated homecoming will happen Tuesday when the Red Wings face the Canucks at Rogers Arena (10 p.m., Fox Sports Detroit) in the start of a three-game Western Canada trip.

His parents, brother, other family and friends will attend.

“It’s huge,” Cholowski said. “It’s going to be a lot of fun; it’s going to be a big game. Being able to skate on that ice against the team I grew up watching will be pretty cool for sure.”

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.
