Season Outlook For Luke Glendening

08/20/2019 at 7:46am EDT

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

2019-20 outlook: A fixture among the Red Wings’ bottom six forwards for six seasons, Glendening will continue his grinder’s role by leading or being among the team leaders in hits and blocked shots. He is the team’s top penalty-killing forward and has improved considerably in the faceoff circle, so much so that he takes many draws in the defensive zone.

Glendening figures to center the fourth line but can play the wing, too. He can match up against the opposition’s top center, as can newly acquired Valtteri Filppula.

Glendening can contribute some offense. He didn’t score a goal in his first 51 NHL games but has scored 44 goals in his past 388 games.

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.
