Where Will Simon Edvinsson Start The Season?

10/04/2022 at 1:15pm EDT

from Bob Duff of Detroit Hockey Now,

With each passing day, two factors are becoming abundantly clear in regards to Red Wings rookie defenseman Simon Edvinsson.

Firstly, he’s getting better all the time. Secondly, where he’ll continue that upward trend once regular-season play gets underway is entirely going to be a decision made by Red Wings GM Steve Yzerman.

“Steve’s job is the big picture,” Detroit coach Derek Lalonde said. “I’m the coach, I want to win every game. Steve’s probably got to protect the big picture.”...

The read from talking to people in the game is that the Red Wings probably came into camp leaning toward Edvinsson going to Grand Rapids. Then again, the same could’ve been said a year ago of Lucas Raymond, and that plan didn’t take long to be changing.

Where is Edvinsson going to be playing on opening night? At this point, it’s anyone’s guess. Even the Red Wings decision makers are admitting that right now, they can’t be certain of anything.

“We have a couple more games,” Lalonde said. “I’m not being guarded. I really couldn’t tell you how this is going to play out next week.

“The fact we’re going to have some of these tough decisions is certainly a positive going forward.”
