A Detroit View Of The World Junior Championship

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

The Wings are almost surely going to have a high draft pick, likely one of the first four picks after the lottery is done, so there will be plenty of attention focused on possible future Red Wings.

Forwards Alexis Lafreniere and Quinton Byfield (both on Team Canada) and Russian goalie Yaroslav Askarov are considered to be the three top prospects currently in the draft, and all would help strengthen the Red Wings.

But there’s also the current Wings prospects who will be competing in the tournament.

Forward Joe Veleno (Canada) and defenseman Moritz Seider (Germany), both of who are playing for the minor league affiliate Grand Rapids Griffins, will be competing for their country.

Also, defenseman Jared McIsaac (Canada), and forward Jonatan Berggren and goalie Jesper Eliasson (both Team Sweden) are other Wings prospects who will be participating.

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.
