Jakub Vrana Speaks

from Brett McWethy of the Wings website,

Vrána was on a point-per-game pace with 11 points (8 goals, 3 assists) in 11 games for the Red Wings last season after being acquired in a late-season trade with the Washington Capitals for Anthony Mantha.

After injuring his shoulder at Training Camp in Traverse City, followed by undergoing surgery, Vrána is yet to make his debut for Detroit in the 2021-22 season. But he's on the road with the Red Wings for the week-long scheduled road trip, another sign that Vrána is inching closer to a return.

"I don't have any more concrete window than I had when he first had the surgery, which was after the now defunct Olympia break. So that would have been the latter part of February, at some point, or mid-February," Blashill said about the projected return for Vrána. "I would say I think there's still a window in that period. Is it sooner than that? The only person that can tell us that is the surgeon, and we haven't had those conversations yet.

"So it's not anything that's imminent, it's not anything that's gonna happen in the next couple weeks. He's been skating for a while, he'll keep skating. It's nice to have him on the trip and keep him as part of the team a little bit more."

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.
