Oskar Sundqvist's Role With The Wings

from Nate Brown of Detroit Hockey Now,

Sundqvist is inked for another season and has been a nice addition to a Red Wings roster Yzerman is building with guys he sees as building the new culture.

From the small sample size already, Sundqvist leaves nothing on the ice, and having experience on a Stanley Cup-winning team is another reason Yzerman brought him into the fold.

Former Detroit Red Wings head coach Jeff Blashill pointed to his team-first effort in the final game of the season.

“I think what’s impressive is a guy like Sundqvist blocks a shot last night, is clearly hurt, limps to the bench,” Blashill said. “He’s won Cups and he didn’t feel great today, he was in pain today and he still puts his gear on makes sure he goes out and plays really hard, good hockey.”

Sundqvist stands to be an important role player as the Red Wings approach respectability. As Yzerman adds to the roster, Sundqvist will likely add even more to the team.
