from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

The trio had such chemistry they’re going to stay together, even as the NHL regulars come aboard.

The Detroit Red Wings begin training camp on Friday, with the roster of veterans, prospects and hopefuls mostly spread across three squads. One exception is on Team Howe, where 2018 first-round picks Filip Zadina and Joe Veleno will play with 2017 first-round pick Michael Rasmussen. The three played so fluidly during the prospects tournament, it made sense to coach Jeff Blashill to keep them together.

“One of the things you try to do is get people in spots where they are comfortable, and they just spent four games playing together,” Blashill said Thursday.

Players spent the morning undergoing physicals, and then had the annual charity golf outing scheduled for the afternoon.

I guess that explains three years of inconsistent lines from game to game, period to period and shift to shift, doesn’t it?

I could have sworn by the end of the tourney, Veleno wasn’t on the top line and Ehn was.  Who, by the way, Art Regner kept calling Christian Ehn throughout the tournament.  I kept hoping Ken Kal would write him a note and slide it over to him, but he never did.

Haha, yeah, like switching lines every period.

Remember Ryan Sproul?  He is on a PTO with the Flames.
