A Bigger Simon Edvinsson Putting His Work In

from Bob Duff of Detroit Hockey Now,

“The goal is to make the same journey that Lucas Raymond and Moritz Seider did last winter,” Edvinsson told writer Johan Rylander of gp.se....

Edvinsson was chosen sixth overall in the 2021 NHL entry draft. In between, Detroit tabbed Raymond with the fourth overall choice in 2020. Edvinsson signed an entry-level deal with the Red Wings in April. He was a finalist for SHL rookie of the year and EHC Young Player of the Year.

The summer training appears to be paying dividends. He’s reporting that he is now carrying 210 pounds on his 6-foot-4 frame.

“I can feel it,” Edvinsson says of the additional strength. “It feels like I’m on the right track.

“A lot has happened in a summer.”

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
