Season Outlook For Adam Erne

09/10/2019 at 6:16am EDT

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

2019-20 outlook: New general manager Steve Yzerman traded for a player he drafted 33rd overall in 2013 to provide depth on the bottom two lines. Erne will provide a physical presence and might occasionally drop the gloves (one of his four career NHL fighting majors was against new teammate Andreas Athanasiou).

Erne doesn’t figure to kill penalties but saw limited power-play time in Tampa Bay (30 seconds per game) and could be used in that capacity with the Red Wings on occasion.

Key question: Will Erne be a regular in the lineup?

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.
