Dana Wakiji of the Wings's website takes a look at prospect Jack Adams,

... Then the COVID-19 pandemic hit and Adams was faced with a new challenge. While the start of the hockey season is an unknown at this point, Adams has been cleared to do everything and will be ready when health experts deem it is safe to play....

"I spent time with Jack (before the pandemic). I flew into Boston to see Seth Barton play and a couple other games. I got a hold of Jack, he was training that day so I went down there and watched him train. One thing about Jack, he's got an incredible attitude. He's almost a guy you gotta worry about doing too much, overtraining. To his credit, he's organized his own training there, he's found skating coaches with our guidance. He's doing everything he possibly can to get himself back from this injury. He wants to have a big year next year in college. I'm hoping he does because he's put in a tremendous amount of work rehabbing this. I know his summer's going to be no different. I think he's going to come back and be a beast next year. I'm looking forward to seeing him play." -- Shawn Horcoff, director of player development and assistant director of player personnel, speaking in late March.

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.
