Motivating Kirill Tyutyayev

09/18/2022 at 9:55am EDT

from Kevin Allen of Detroit Hockey Now,

When coach Ben Simon was talking about Red Wings draft pick Kirill Tyutyayev last night he sounded like he was giving the Robin Williams “Carpe Diem” speech from “Dead Poets Society.

He didn’t tell Tyutyayev to “Gather ye rosebuds while ye may.” But in Simon’s own way, he told Tyutyayev he needed to seize the day.

“I think it’s important for him to make the most of whatever opportunity is afforded to him,” said Simon, coach of the Detroit rookies in the NHL Prospect Camp. “Whether that’s whatever role is in Grand Rapids — however that plays out — but make the most of whatever opportunity is given to him and don’t look back. He’s got to grab a job and grab a spot.”

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.
