What Jacob de la Rose Plans To Bring To The Wings

10/25/2018 at 2:24pm EDT

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Jacob de la Rose was unsure of his NHL future when the Montreal Canadiens waived him last week. He was happy to get calls from Ken Holland informing him the Detroit Red Wings claimed him and from Niklas Kronwall welcoming him to the team.

De la Rose grew up in Sweden following the Red Wings because of their large contingent of Swedish players. More importantly, it's an opportunity to resurrect his career.

De la Rose will make his season debut Friday against the Winnipeg Jets at Little Caesars Arena (7:30 p.m., Fox Sports Detroit). He will center the fourth line, with Justin Abdelkader and Martin Frk.

"I think I'm a responsible two-way center," de la Rose said. "I can play on the wing, too. Good skater, good on the penalty kill. I think I have some offense in me that I hope I can bring to this club, too.

"Hopefully, I can come in with some new energy and try to bring my game and help the team."

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.
