Reviewing Recent Detroit Drafts

06/06/2020 at 3:40pm EDT

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

This is the first in a series examining the Wings’ past five drafts. The lottery for the 2020 draft, delayed by the coronavirus pandemic, is scheduled for June 26. Under the format announced May 26 as part of the NHL’s plan to resume play, the Wings will pick no worse than fourth overall.

F Evgeny Svechnikov
Drafted: No. 19

Draft year: 32 goals, 46 assists for 78 points in 55 games with Cape Breton (Quebec Major Junior Hockey League).

Scouting report: Considered a complete package of size, skill and strength....

This was Svechnikov’s last season of being waiver exempt, so he’ll have to be on next season’s roster. He projects as a bottom-six winger.

much more and on other players too...

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.
