Videos- Wrapping Up A Win In Calumet

09/27/2019 at 3:58am EDT

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

The Red Wings took their exhibition season to the Upper Peninsula on Thursday — specifically, Calumet — and everyone appeared to enjoy the experience.

Playing the Stanley Cup champion St. Louis Blues in the annual Hockeyville USA game, the Red Wings continued the exhibition season with a 4-1 victory over the Blues....

Here are other observations, with two more exhibition games left for the Wings, a home-and-home back-to-back against Toronto:

- Rasmussen, Cholowski impressing: The two young players made the Wings’ opening night roster last year but struggled, with Cholowski being sent to Grand Rapids halfway through the season.

Both were expected to begin the upcoming regular season in Grand Rapids, gaining pro experience and earning a level of confidence at the minor league level.

That may be changing, especially in the case of Cholowski....

- Filip Zadina, Joe Veleno update: Neither has shown enough consistently to likely land a spot on the opening night roster.

Both struggled at times against the Blues, with their confidence appearing to wane as the exhibition season has progressed.

Both need the experience of playing in Grand Rapids.

Below, watch extended game highlights and post-game talk from Mantha, Rasmussen and Blashill.
