from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,
Rookie forward Lucas Raymond has hit a goal-scoring lull. But he remains productive in other departments.
Raymond has eight assists in the last 10 games, he's still playing well defensively and his confidence isn't wavering.
As coach Jeff Blashill sees it, Raymond isn't in any sort of slump.
“I haven’t seen a dropoff in his play,” Blashill said Monday....
“He’s had chances in multiple games in a row,” Blashill said. “They just haven't gone in, and that’s the way it is. This is a hard league to score all the time. He’s been a consistently good player defensively, and he’s a guy who goes out and does the right things to win a shift....
The Wings had an optional mid-afternoon practice Monday in San Jose. Neither Dylan Larkin (upper-body injury) nor Tyler Bertuzzi (wrist) took the ice.
Blashill had no update on when either forward could return.
Larkin left Sunday's game after one period. Video replays showed Larkin shaking off some sort of discomfort in his left hand after a collision with a Ducks player. The Wings have been mum on the injury.
