Report- Jeff Blashill Expected To Sign A Two-Year Extension

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

As the Detroit Red Wings head into the final week of their season, there’s one item that tops their to-do list: announce an extension for coach Jeff Blashill.

The deal is for two years, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. The length signals to Blashill the organization wants to see the Wings make the playoffs during that span. An announcement is likely to come Tuesday, when the Wings host Pittsburgh Penguins at Little Caesars Arena.

While the Wings are headed for a third straight draft lottery, the organization likes how hard Blashill has the team playing, and how they’ve maintained a culture of competitiveness as the team has embraced a youth movement.

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.
