Wings At The World Championship

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

Tyler Bertuzzi and Anthony Mantha will have a chance to play some more hockey this spring.

The two forwards are among Detroit Red Wings who have been invited to play for Team Canada at next month’s IIHF World Championship. Andreas Athanasiou also has been invited, and is expected to go pending his health, general manager Ken Holland told the Free Press on Monday.

The U.S. team is similarly waiting to find out if Dylan Larkin is healthy enough to make a third straight appearance. Both Larkin and Athanasiou played in the Wings’ season finale, April 6, but had nagging injuries.

I’d like to see all of those fellas play if they are healthy.  If they still have nagging injuries just stay home.

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.
