from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Blashill elected to slide Robby Fabbri into Bertuzzi’s spot on a line with Larkin and Lucas Raymond, while Carter Rowney drew into the lineup.

“Fabbs, for me, has been outstanding from day one of training camp in terms of his competitiveness, he has a high compete level, he’s got skill and has some of the attributes that Bert brings to the table in terms of going to get pucks and ability to score,” Blashill said.

“We think it’s the most natural guy going to that line. He and Raymond have played together and played well, and Fabs centered that line when Larks was out.

“We think it gives us a good piece up there.”

Bertuzzi’s decision to not get the shots, said Blashill, doesn’t bring any hard feelings among teammates.

“Our guys love Tyler Bertuzzi, he’s a great teammate, and as a coaching staff I’ve loved coaching him,” Blashill said. “He’s somebody that comes to work every day. He has great character.

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.
