Detroit Prospects Ranked In The Middle Of The Pack

from the Detroit News,

The Detroit Red Wings 2019-20 season likely will be another one of rebuilding, only under new leadership that has a familiar face in general manager Steve Yzerman.

So, while there's plenty of interest in what the Wings might do this season, there's always going to be interest in who might be coming to Detroit in the near future.

ESPN weighed in Wednesday with its NHL prospect pipeline rankings, slotting the Red Wings at No. 15 in the 31-team league.

"The Red Wings have been doing some significant work on their prospect system over the past two drafts and in the free-agent market," writes Chris Peters, an NHL draft and prospects analyst for ESPN. "The top of the system is loaded with talent and players who have room to develop and grow."

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.
