Day 2 Picks Of The NHL Draft By The Detroit Red Wings

06/22/2019 at 4:47pm EDT

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News (Kulfan is adding to this as picks come in)...

The Red Wings went with another defenseman with their first pick Saturday.

In Round 2 of the NHL Entry Draft, the Red Wings selected Antti Tuomisto, a 6-foot-4, 194-pound defenseman.

Like Moritz Seider, Friday’s surprise first-round selection, Tuomisto is a bit of reach by some scouting services’ opinions.

Tuomisto was ranked No. 15 by NHL Central Scouting’s European skaters, and 86th overall by Eliteprospects.com.

Tuomisto is said to have a hard, accurate shot and can make a good, accurate first pass out of his zone.

With their second pick in the second round, 54th overall, the Wings took center Robert Mastrosimone. A 5-10, 170-pound forward who can also play left wing, Mastrosimone had 60 points (31 goals) in 54 games with Chicago in the United States Hockey League.

Mastrosimone doesn’t have explosive speed, but has an exceptional wrist shot and is a fine stickhandler.

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.
