Well, I hit the couch for the night in 5 minutes so one last update.
from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,
It’s far too early to make any bold predictions about new Red Wings forward Taro Hirose. The undrafted free agent out from Michigan State has played in just two NHL games.
But he has already made a nice impression on teammates and Detroit’s coaching staff.
Hirose earned an assist in both games, saw time on the power play, and didn’t look out of place on a line with veterans Thomas Vanek and Frans Nielsen.
“Poise, vision, it looks like he wants to make a play every time he has the puck,” coach Jeff Blashill told reporters after Thursday’s 5-2 loss in St. Louis. “We made a comment to him about spreading the zone and right away the next shift, he goes out and he spreads the zone.”
