Oh How The Wings Defensive Corp Has Changed

10/08/2018 at 5:20pm EDT

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

So what will the Wings’ defensive lineup look like against the Ducks?

You will have Cholowski, Hronek and Sulak, all playing in their third NHL game. Hicketts will be in his seventh NHL game. Jensen is starting his second full NHL season, and then you have the elder statesman, DeKeyser.

DeKeyser says it's been since college when he's felt like the seasoned veteran on defense.

“I was always the youngest defenseman here, for the last four or five years," he said. “It is weird how it’s changed.”

Just look at the ice time Sunday in Los Angeles.

Cholowski, who earned an NHL job days before the others to begin the season and has been the most impressive of the young defensmen, led all Wings in ice time with 24 minutes, 50 seconds.
