Vaccinations

The Detroit Red Wings are taking advantage of having access to the COVID-19 vaccine.

The pandemic ripped through the locker room on opening weekend, forcing five players into quarantine. One spent training camp dealing with it — and that’s left him leaning toward postponing getting the vaccine until after the season ends.

The majority of Wings players, the coaching staff and other staff within the so-called team bubble have been vaccinated, including head coach Jeff Blashill.

“I have empathy for anybody around the world that doesn’t have access to it,” Blashill said Tuesday. “It’s beyond the NHL and bigger than the NHL. We feel fortunate that we have access to it. There’s countries in the world that do and some that don’t have as much, and I feel empathy for any of those.”

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.
