I just paid $3.00 to read Ted Kulfan for 3 months then it is $9.99 per moth after that. (I'll decide then.)
from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,
Wings fans, or at least a growing segment of them watching these playoffs, are seeing it and not happy Hughes isn’t part of the Wings’ organization.
Certainly the Wings had plenty of chances to watch him as he played two seasons at Michigan and before that, two years at the Plymouth Township-based U.S. National Team Development Program.
In fact, Jeff Blashill coached Hughes at two men’s world championships (2018-19) and roomed Hughes with Dylan Larkin, where the two became friends.
Before the Wings faced Vancouver this season, Blashill spoke about Hughes' improvement and his passion for hockey.
“Some of the things that maybe he wasn’t great at throughout that season going into the draft, he had already shown improvement in. Like his shot, for example,” said Blashill. “When I watched him on the ice, I saw a guy that could shoot a puck and his technique was excellent. As his strength improved his shot was going to get way better.
