Dennis Cholowski On What He Can Control

04/01/2021 at 8:02am EDT

from Steve Kaminski of Mlive,

The 23-year old defenseman, who the Detroit Red Wings drafted with the 20th overall pick of the 2016 NHL draft, was reassigned to Grand Rapids on Monday. So to recap, Cholowski started the season on Detroit’s taxi squad, was reassigned to Grand Rapids Feb. 1, recalled to Detroit March 19 before heading back to the Griffins this week.

Cholowski told the media during a Wednesday Zoom call in Grand Rapids that he’s just rolling with the punches.

“I’m doing well,” Cholowski said. “I’m just worried about what I can control, I guess, which is how I play, wherever that is. I just got to go out and play. That’s all I’m worried about.

“This is my third year, and I have seen it all. I have been up and down. It’s not really frustrating. Nothing really surprises me.”...

Cholowski has played in 11 games for the Griffins and has eight points, including three goals and five assists. He saw action in two games with the Red Wings. Cholowski has played in 90 career NHL games, and he has recorded nine goals and 15 assists.

“It’s tough to evaluate a player’s maturity,” Griffins coach Ben Simon said. “It’s easy on the ice to evaluate whether a player has improved and matured. I think he has on the ice, for sure. But I think, and one of the things you guys don’t get to see on a daily basis is just how he is handling himself away from the rink and being more of a pro.

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.
