Wings Hit The Jackpot In 1989 Draft And A Look At Trevor Zegras At The #6 Spot

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.

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Trevor Zegras

Position: Center

Height/Weight: 6-0/174

Shoots: Left

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.

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.
