Notes Before Tonight's Pre-Season Game

from Dana Wakiji of DetroitRedWings.com,

Detroit Red Wings fans will get to see a fresh face and some welcome young veteran faces when the team hosts the New York Islanders in their third exhibition game tonight at Little Caesars Arena.

The fresh face is Oliwer Kaski, the free agent Finnish defenseman the Wings signed May 28.

Like several other players, Kaski was nursing a tweak or two after a tough training camp but is finally ready to play.

During the morning skate, Kaski was running the point on the power-play unit that had Michael Rasmussen, Taro Hirose, Adam Erne and Filip Hronek.

"I want to see him on the power play," Wings coach Jeff Blashill said of Kaski. "Obviously, see (Dennis) Cholowski on the power play and Hronek. You only have so many spots but a real good chance for Kaski."

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.
