from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

"It is really positive and a lot of energy to see the guys, just be here," Vrana said. "I miss them, you know? I miss them. I am so happy to be back."

The program is designed to assist players dealing with a range of issues relating to anything from mental health to substance abuse. Vrana was asked what he was comfortable sharing about the experience.

"I mean, for me, I just don’t feel like sharing anything, that’s just my personal reasons," he said. "The policy of the PA program and the administrators, it is set and I can’t share everything and I don’t feel like doing it, either."...

"It was just great to have him back, to get him back in the room with the guys," coach Derek Lalonde said. "He’s able to practice with us. The next step is when we think he can be game ready. He has been out for two months, it was his first skate. We want to be really patient. We want to put him in the best position to be successful when he is game ready. When is that going to be — I don’t know."

from Kevin Allen of Detroit Hockey Now,

The Detroit Red Wings, a team that has been battered and bruised by bad luck this season, were reinvigorated Friday by a wave of good fortune,

In addition to Jakub Vrana returning to the team, captain Dylan Larkin was able to practice with a non-contact jersey. Meanwhile, defensemen Filip Hronek and Olli Maatta were full participants.

“It’s a huge positive,” Detroit coach Derek Lalonde said. “I don’t know who’s playing or what we’re looking
at. But we weren’t far removed from all of those guys potentially being long term. As much as it’s been a grind, and a times a little demoralizing with the amount of injuries we’ve had, today was a positive for sure.




The Wings have assigned Steven Kampfer to Grand Rapids.

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.
