Audio from the Red Wings’ loss to Chicago at the prospect tournament ‘16

There's no solace in a blow-out loss, and the Detroit Red Wings' prospects dropped a 5-0 decision to the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday afternoon at Centre Ice Arena.

The Wings will not be practicing on Sunday from 10:45-11:30, so if you show up for practice, you're likely to be sorely disappointed...

Almost as disappointed as the players were with their outing in a game in which the Red Wings were simply out-skated, out-system-performed and out-lucked as well as a couple of bad bounces helped the Hawks build an insurmountable lead.

Detroit will attempt to start fresh on Monday and prepare for a must-win game against the St. Louis Blues.

After the game, myself, Hooked on Hockey Magazine's Kevin Sporka and DetroitRedWings.com's Joshua Berenter spoke with Jordan Sambrook, who addressed the loss, the bad bounces that went the Hawks' way, and his and the team's respective performances thus far at the tournament:

‘Three Things’: A recap, a conversation with Osgood and an article about Mantha

Of Red Wings-related note this afternoon:

1. DetroitRedWings.com's Joshua Berenter penned a "morning after" recap of the Red Wings prospects' 6-4 win over Columbus in last night's prospect tournament opener:

The Red Wings got off to a blazing start in the 2016 NHL Prospect Tournament, scoring two goals in the first 69 seconds and defeating the two-time defending tournament champion Columbus Blue Jackets 6-4 on Friday night at Centre Ice Arena.

Center Kyle Criscuolo, a free-agent invite who recently signed with the Red Wings’ minor league affiliate Grand Rapids Griffins, opened the scoring just 43 seconds into the game.

Columbus didn’t take long to counter, though, tying the score at 1-1 just 13 seconds later.

But the Wings didn’t let the quick response faze them. Center Mike Borkowski, another free-agent invite and recent Griffins signee, scored 13 seconds after Columbus’ tying goal to re-take the lead and make it a 2-1 game only 1:09 into the first period.

“That was crazy,” Criscuolo said about the frantic start. “I think there was three goals in the first minute or so which we weren’t expecting. But it’s good for us. A lot of guys stepped up in a lot of ways and played pretty well.”

Berenter continues...

2. The Detroit News's Tony Paul spoke with Chris Osgood regarding the Red Wings' upcoming campaign...

Impressions from the morning skate at the 2nd day of the Red Wings’ prospect tournament ‘16

As stated in the audio post, the Red Wings' prospects took an optional morning skate ahead of today's matinee game (4 PM EDT start on Fox Sports Go and DetroitRedWings.com) against the Chicago Blackhawks, and that meant that the vast majority of the Wings' roster was held off the ice to prepare for the team's second game in 21 hours.

Luke Kirwan, Adam Marsh, Justin Brazeau, Alex Globke, Matthew Caito and goaltenders Stephen Dhillon and Connor Hicks worked with Griffins assistant coaches Bruce Ramsay and Ben Simon. Jeff Salajko's understudy goaltending coach gave Dhillon and Hicks a workout; the 4 forwards and defenseman (Caito) worked on four drills under Ramsay and Simon's guidance, all encompassing defensemen playing the puck up the ice.

Audio from the morning skate at the 2nd day of the Wings’ prospect tournament ‘16, Horcoff included

The Red Wings' prospects took an optional skate ahead of today's game against the Chicago Blackhawks (4 PM on Fox Sports Go and DetroitRedWings.com), so only Luke Kirwan, Adam Marsh, Justin Brazeau, Alex Globke, Mathew Caito and goaltenders Stephen Dhillon and Connor Hicks worked with Griffins coaches Ben Simon, Bruce Ramsay, and goaltender Jeff Salajko's understudy.

After practice, myself, NHL.com's Mike G. Morreale and DetroitRedWings.com's Joshua Berenter spoke with players who skipped the optional (the rest of the roster).

Joe Hicketts addressed the Wings' slightly sloppy first period and ultimate 6-4 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday, Hicketts discussed his role on the team as a #1 defenseman playing nearly seamlessly alongside Robbie Russo, he addressed his attempts to add an extra step, and Hicketts duly noted that he, like every player, hopes that they will make the Wings' roster, even though Hicketts said that he "has an idea about where he'll end up":

Ken Holland discusses the Wings’ hiring of Shawn Horcoff with Khan, Duff

The Red Wings named Shawn Horcoff their director of player development on Friday, and Horcoff himself confirmed the news to the Edmonton Journal's Jim Matheson. Ken Holland explained the hiring to MLive's Ansar Khan...

"I've known Shawn a little bit because he lives in Detroit and went to Michigan State," Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said. "Kris Draper knows him very well. We interviewed him and talked to a lot of people that know him. We felt he'd be good at this job."

Horcoff, who is at the annual prospects tournament in Traverse City, will oversee the organization's prospects in North America and Europe. He will be running Detroit's development camp next July.

...

Horcoff, who turns 38 on Saturday, has lived in Michigan for years and often skated with Red Wings and other local NHL players prior to training camp.

Fischer served as the Red Wings' director of player development for nine years.

"Jiri Fischer came to me this summer and said he loves the job but wanted the opportunity to grow as an executive and would like to get into the player evaluation side of the industry," Holland said.

And the Windsor Star's Bob Duff:

The Detroit Red Wings' prospects defeated the Columbus Blue Jackets' prospects 6-4 on Friday night, pulling off something of an upset as the motley crew of prospects and Griffins signings took out Zach Werenski, Sonny Milano and the rest of Columbus's highly-ranked repeat tournament champion team.
