Cutter Gauthier Would Be A Good Fit For The Wings

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

The interview with the Detroit Red Wings was a highlight for Cutter Gauthier, a big, versatile forward who would be a terrific addition for the Wings at the No. 8 pick in the upcoming NHL draft.

By the time prospects get to the combine, teams know what they can do on the ice. Spending 20 minutes with a player is a chance to see more of his personality. For a guy like Gauthier, who grew up playing hockey in the Detroit area, coming face-to-face with Steve Yzerman was a thrill and a test.

“I was at a loss for words so I stuttered a little bit,” Gauthier told the Free Press on Saturday. “Talking to him and having him ask me questions and wanting to know about me is pretty cool. Seeing what a legend he is, it was definitely breathtaking speaking to him.”

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.
