Ken Daniels On The Return To Play

from clickondetroit,

Ken Daniels and Mickey Redmond are the longest-currently-serving broadcast duo in the league.

It was tough when the Red Wings Season abruptly ended this year, so it was nice to see each other again, six feet apart of course.

“Mickey was really careful from the beginning,” Daniels said. “Even before Carolina came in, I would go to open a door and the door handle would be soaked. My hand was wet with disinfectant and I would think, ‘Oh Mickey was here.’ And that was before the shutdown. He knew what was coming. Recently, our families spent time together at the Redmond’s house, distanced with the hockey stick.”

Daniels said he’s been following the news of the NHL’s plan to restart with 24 teams in hub cities. He said it all sounds great, if it happens.

“I’m 50-50 on it,” Daniels said. “Players still have to vote on it. Since phase two opened, 11 players have tested positive for COVID-19. I’m not sure how many players are desperate to come back. There are still so many questions not answered.”

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.
