Your Input Is Requested - The Young Wings Loaned To European Teams

Yesterday I received an email with this suggestion...

Your website has been an absolute blessing during the COVID-19 pandemic and on overall unusual year for hockey fans in general, especially a diehard Wings fan. Thank you!

Thought it might be cool if you could start a thread that helps diehard Wings fans, like myself, following along with the several teams our beloved Red Wings have been loaned out to. I’m thinking schedules of upcoming games (so we can track down streams), game results, highlights, etc.

A good idea so let's have a go at it, I am sure a few of you can add to this post rather quickly.

So far we have Filip Hronek (Mountfield HK, Czech Republic) (Moritz Seider (Mannheim, Germany), Filip Zadina (HC Ocelari Trinec, Czech Republic), Gustav Lindstrom (Almtuna, Sweden) and Mathias Brome (Orebro HK, Sweden).

Over here, the earliest start date for the season is November. Right now, it looks bleak until at least the end of the year for concerts and similar events, but they’re trying to make an exception for sports, especially football (=soccer). While the smaller sports, which is hockey here, desperately need fans in the arenas just to survive, they’re sadly not higher up the agenda.
I’ll let you know as soon as there are updates to the situation.

LGRW from Germany!

As for the Swedish leagues, I can see them starting earlier - and with (more) fans - than us.

Any exposure they can get should help them, with the NHL season possibility not starting before December or January. grin
