‘Two Things’: A Game-Day Preview video and profiling Tomas Nosek

Of Red Wings-related note this evening:

1. Here's the Red Wings' Game-Day Preview video, in which Dan Mannes speaks with Tomas Nosek and Jeff Blashill:

2. The Free Press's Helene St. James penned an article regarding Tomas Nosek's recall:

“I always want to be player who can play power play, PK, everything, defense, offense,” Nosek said. “Whatever Coach wants, I will play. I will try to prove I belong here.”

Nosek, 24, is in his third AHL season, meaning he’ll require waivers to be sent down starting next season. He played six games for the Wings last season, with no points, but he has made himself into a go-to guy with the Griffins.

“I feel the difference, and the speed gives me confidence, too,” Nosek said. “I play power play this year down there, so that has helped me with the points. I am very happy.”

Nosek has 15 goals among 40 points in 49 AHL games and is a significant reason for why the Griffins lead their division. A native of Pardubice, Czech Republic (also the hometown of Dominik Hasek), Nosek has as many goals this season as he did in 70 games last season.

“He has done excellent in Grand Rapids, from what I have been told,” coach Jeff Blashill said. “He is a real good, solid defensive player that can make plays offensively. He is hard on the puck. His skating has really improved over the last couple of years. He is just a real smart, good hockey player.”

St. James continues...
