from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Red Wings forward Jonatan Berggren, the 2018 second-round pick, seems to like the North American game.

"It's difficult, you have much less space and time," Berggren said Friday. "But I like it, too. You need to be 100 percent ready all the time when you have the puck. I like to make hard plays and give my teammates good spots to score.

"I like it when it's pretty tight and it's harder out there on the ice. I like when it's smaller ice."

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.
