from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,
Their first-round selection was center Mike Sillinger. He topped 1,000 games in his NHL career, but lasted only 129 games with the Wings before being traded to Anaheim. In Roudn 2, 32nd overall, the Wings chose defenseman Bob Boughner. He never played a game for them, but topped 600 NHL games.
The picks that made history, the ones that boosted the Wings into a Stanley Cup dynasty, happened in Rounds 3, 4 and 11, when they selected, respectively, Nicklas Lidstrom, Sergei Fedorov and Vladimir Konstantinov.

2018-19 team: U.S. National Team Development Program
2018-19 stats: 60 games, 26 goals, 61 assists, 87 points, 94 penalty minutes.
Why Red Wings would be interested: They could use more depth at center moving forward and Zegras is a tremendous passer who can get the puck to their shooting wingers.
