A Look At Givani Smith

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

With the hockey world on pause because of the coronavirus pandemic, this is an opportunity to check in on Detroit Red Wings prospects.

This edition takes a look at Givani Smith....

For Smith to be with the Wings full-time and help them regain competitiveness, he needs to use his 6-foot-2, 210-pound body to punish opponents and get them off the puck. He has the size to be a force down low, and could find success as a power-play specialist if he can handle the punishment that comes with setting up in front of an opponent’s net.

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.
