Oskar Sundqvist’s Role With The Wings

from Nate Brown of Detroit Hockey Now,

Sundqvist is inked for another season and has been a nice addition to a Red Wings roster Yzerman is building with guys he sees as building the new culture.

From the small sample size already, Sundqvist leaves nothing on the ice, and having experience on a Stanley Cup-winning team is another reason Yzerman brought him into the fold.

Former Detroit Red Wings head coach Jeff Blashill pointed to his team-first effort in the final game of the season.

“I think what’s impressive is a guy like Sundqvist blocks a shot last night, is clearly hurt, limps to the bench,” Blashill said. “He’s won Cups and he didn’t feel great today, he was in pain today and he still puts his gear on makes sure he goes out and plays really hard, good hockey.”

Sundqvist stands to be an important role player as the Red Wings approach respectability. As Yzerman adds to the roster, Sundqvist will likely add even more to the team.

from Kevin Allen of Detroit Hockey Now,

Magnus Hellberg is doing what he can at the World Championships to show he is capable of playing for the Detroit Red Wings in 2022-23.

The 6-foot-6 goalie is 2-0 for Sweden in the preliminary round of the tournament. He turned in a 16-save shutout in Sweden’s 6-0 win against Great Britain Tuesday. Earlier in the week, he made 18 saves to help Sweden take down Czechia 5-3. That gives him a 1.50 goals-against average and .919 save percentage.

Sunquist is not worth any of the Wings previous young ventures like Jarnkok, Jensen, Smith, Stecher, Athonuisa, etc etc.
