Many Roles For Pius Suter

04/09/2023 at 5:38pm EDT

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Suter will provide a professional performance anywhere asked.

"Our forward group, man-games lost from the beginning of the year, it'll be a huge number," Lalonde said. "To have someone like that, to fill and plug holes through the injuries, he's a good, useful player."

Suter feels he developed his versatile game while playing junior hockey in Guelph (Ontario), on a team that included Wings teammate Robby Fabbri and former Wing Tyler Bertuzzi.

It was a deep and veteran lineup, so Suter had to be prepared to fill whatever role was available to him.

"We were stacked in Guelph, if anyone got hurt I to play kind of thing," Suter said. "I always played in the top-six of my junior team (in Switzerland), and coming up, I had the understanding of what my strength was and what the other guys have, and what you're supposed to do."

It's interesting to see how Suter's role has evolved this season with the Wings. Suter was a healthy scratch on opening night, when the Wings had a healthy and deep lineup, despite scoring 15 goals while playing all 82 games last season.

I would like Suter to be signed, like his game
