Notes On The Detroit Red Wings

09/25/2018 at 4:22pm EDT

from Dana Wakiji of DetroitRedWings.com,

Four preseason games down, four to go before the tough decisions have to be made.

The battle for spots on the Detroit Red Wings blue line continues tonight in Chicago.

Joe Hicketts, Dennis Cholowski, Filip Hronek and Libor Sulak are all slated to play against the Blackhawks.

"Libor's been really good, Dennis has been really good. Hicketts probably has been the best of the group so far," Wings coach Jeff Blashill said Monday. "Certainly there's four more games left. I thought that was Hronek's best game (Sunday) night. He can produce offense, too, so I think it's a good thing those guys are all really pushing. I'd say it's still wide open and there's obviously a couple spots open with (Mike Green) out to start the year. We'll see where next two games take us."

Hronek, who was on the AHL's All-Rookie team last year, has one assist in two games but is still finding his way.

"It's hard a little bit," Hronek admitted after Tuesday's morning skate. "I don't feel great. I try to do my best. I didn't feel comfortable yet. It's still the start of the season."
