Michael Rasumussen Is Learning The Game

11/21/2018 at 11:39am EST

from Gregg Krupa of the Detroit News,

He is growing accustomed to the NHL because he is playing in the NHL.

Maybe other Red Wings’ prospects in this and future seasons of redeveloping the once-perennial Stanley Cup contender will benefit from Rasmussen’s ability to adjust to a sometimes-confounding new reality and grab his piece of it.

“I don’t know that it’s anything too specific,” Rasmussen said, when asked after practice Tuesday why the puck is starting to go in for him, with some regularity. “I’ve had lots of chances.

“I don’t really know the exact reason. I just try to play my best and play in a way that will help the team.”...

“I think he’s learned that when he has the puck or he doesn’t have the puck, he just has to skate more,” Blashill said. “He’s a good skater, and he just has to make sure he’s moving his feet.”

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.
