from Gregg Krupa of the Detroit News,
He is emerging as a player of considerable potential for a franchise desperate for stars.
Amid a chaotic first nine games in which the struggling Red Wings saw all five of its veteran defensemen injured and compiled its worst start in 33 years, Cholowski is a revelation.
His generally effective defense, coupled with strong skating and passing mark the early moments of his NHL career.
Cholowski needs to refine his gap-closing skills, the ability to use proximity to an opponent to limit his effectiveness. But the 2016 first round pick, 20th overall, is likely in the lineup, to stay.
The dividend, at least through seven games, is early evidence Cholowski seems to be joining Dylan Larkin as the two prospects most likely to achieve stardom for the Wings, near the beginning of what looks like a long struggle to restore the luster of a Stanley Cup contender.
