Two Detroit Prospects Once Did Not See Eye To Eye

from olan Bianchi of the Detroit News,

There was a time when Carter Mazur and Redmond Savage hated each other.

But that was before Mazur, a Jackson native, and Savage, who was born in Arizona but moved to Michigan when he was in the eighth grade, were both selected as middle-round draft picks by the Detroit Red Wings in the 2021 NHL Draft.

"Carter and I used to have some battles in our U15, U16 years; our teams were pretty big rivals. I was on Compuware and he was on Little Caesars," Savage told The Detroit News.

"Mr. (Kris) Draper was coaching their team and Kienan (Draper, a fellow Red Wings prospect) was on that team. We had a pretty stacked team ourselves ... and it got pretty heated a lot of the times, so I actually grew up hating (Mazur). But now that he's on my team, I'm a pretty big fan of him."
