The Goaltending Picture For The Detroit Red Wings

08/12/2019 at 3:08pm EDT

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

This is the first of a three-part series examining the state of the Red Wings' organization at every position. Today: goaltenders.

... “This is the only organization I know,” said Howard. “I love playing for the Wings, my family loves living in Detroit. It’s very special.”

Trade speculation around Howard was rampant last season.

With the Red Wings expected to be sellers at the deadline again in the 2019-20 season, and Howard on a one-year contract, there’s likely a ton of rumors about Howard’s future again.

Howard’s situation will go a long way in determining how the goaltending position will look going forward.

Howard and Jonathan Bernier held the position last season and will do so again beginning in October.

Prospect Filip Larsson will begin his professional career in Grand Rapids, with veteran Calvin Pickard backing Larsson.

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.
