Stecher was also the partner throughout the tournament of Michigan defenseman Owen Power, who projects to be the No. 1 overall pick in the July NHL Entry Draft.
"He's real good, a lot like Seider in that he's good in every aspect," Stecher said. "He isn't overly offensive or defensive, he's just a real good two-way defenseman that can contribute at both ends of the ice."
The infusion of young talent coming into the NHL lineup, plus the way the Wings finished last season — as well as played for the majority of the season, save for a three-week early battle against COVID — gives Stecher optimism about the Wings' future.
"You look at the young guys coming in and the impact they made last season like when Joe Veleno came in, and he played real well in those games he played," Stecher said, "and knowing we're going to have more young players coming in and making an impact, it's a good time to be a Wing."
