Detroit Players In Europe

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

When the NHL season begins – if it begins at all in 2012-13 – Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock might be inclined to put rookie Damien Brunner on a line with Henrik Zetterberg.

Zetterberg has formed good chemistry with the 26-year-old Brunner while playing for EV Zug of Switzerland's Series A League.

Zetterberg has 10 points (six goals, four assists) in four games, three of them league games. Brunner, who was flourishing before Zetterberg arrived, leads the Nationalliga A league in scoring with 24 points (nine goals, 15 assists) in 13 games.

Their linemate, Linus Omark of the Edmonton Oilers, is reaping the benefits with 22 points (six goals, 16 assists) in 15 games. He's second in the league in scoring.

continue to see how some of the other players are performing...

Looks like the Wings (if they ever return to play) have their new top six forward.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
