Season Preview For The Detroit Red Wings

09/21/2018 at 10:52am EDT

from Nicholas J. Cotsonika of NHL.com,

The 2018-19 NHL season begins Oct. 3. With training camps open, NHL.com is taking a look at the five keys, the inside scoop on roster questions and the projected lines for all 31 teams. Today, the Detroit Red Wings.

Making the cut

Rasmussen seems likely to break into the NHL on the wing, the way Larkin did in 2015-16. The big question is Zadina: Will he make the initial roster, especially now that Zetterberg is gone and Athanasiou has moved to center, opening a spot on the wing? Will he start with Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League, represent the Czech Republic at the 2019 IIHF World Junior Championship and then come to Detroit?

Filip Hronek, 20, seems likely to be the seventh defenseman but is competing with Dennis Cholowski, 20, Joe Hicketts, 22, and Libor Sulak, 24.

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.
