Top 50 Players In Detroit's Organization

04/30/2020 at 11:17am EDT

Go through the gallery to view The Detroit News' top 50 Red Wings in terms of organizational value, compiled by Ted Kulfan.

3. Filip Zadina, wing: An ankle injury shortened Zadina’s season, but he showed enough progress this season to excite the organization and fans about his future. A pure goal-scorer, Zadina has made efforts to improve all aspects of his game.

6. Moritz Seider, defenseman: The Wings’ 2019 first-round pick has yet to play in the NHL, but he showed exciting potential spending the season in Grand Rapids. Seider has all the attributes to be a longtime, top-pair NHL defenseman.

9. Michael Rasmussen, center/wing: The 2017 first-round pick spent the season in Grand Rapids, and though it was injury-marred, Rasmussen showed enough to renew optimism in his future. With his size (6-foot-6) and strength, he could become a force around the net.

11. Joe Veleno, center: A 2018 first-round pick, Veleno struggled early in Grand Rapids, but was showing glimpses of his vast potential before the AHL season was paused. Probably another season away from seeing NHL time, but Veleno could develop into a reliable two-way center.

more, Larkin and Mantha are at #1 and #2...

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.
