Video- Ville Husso On Joining The Detroit Red Wings

07/10/2022 at 6:28pm EDT

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Ville Husso and Alex Nedeljkovic, who will form the Detroit Red Wings’ goaltending tandem in 2022-23 and perhaps beyond, can relate to the long and arduous journey netminders often take to the NHL.

Both were drafted in 2014, the same year as Detroit captain Dylan Larkin. Nedeljkovic still qualified as a rookie this past season at age 26 and Husso made his NHL debut the previous season, three weeks before his 26th birthday.

Goalies form a close-knit fraternity, and while Husso, acquired Friday in a trade with St. Louis, hasn’t met Nedeljkovic yet, he knows both will need to play a lot to give the team solid goaltending.

“It’s always nice to have good guy or goalie partner with you,” Husso said. “Me and (Jordan) Binnington were pushing each other every day (in St. Louis). That’s one thing I learned from him. With Alex I want to do the same thing, push each other every day in practices and games to get better every day.

“I feel like these days in hockey, you need to have two good goalies on the team. I think we’ll be a good goalie duo.”

Below, watch as Husso speaks with the Detroit media today.

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.
