The Search For A Goal Scoring Forward

05/18/2020 at 12:22pm EDT

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

This is the first in a series looking at the Red Wings' position-by-position needs entering free agency. Today: Forwards.

No team has struggled to score goals in the NHL this season like the Red Wings.

The Wings ranked last in goals scored (142), goals per game (two), and ranked 29th on the power play (14.9%).

After the top line of Tyler Bertuzzi, Dylan Larkin and Anthony Mantha, goal-scoring was lacking.

For that reason, expect the Red Wings to be active in landing a scoring forward during unrestricted free agency in the offseason later this year....

Tomas Nosek, Vegas

2019-20 stats: Eight goals, seven assists, 67 games

Cap hit: $1 million.

Analysis: The Wings lost Nosek in the expansion draft and he’s been a good depth player for Vegas. With the Knights’ salary cap issues, Nosek will likely find a home elsewhere and could possibly return to Detroit.

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.
