from Nolan Bianchi of the Detroit News,

Do you miss Red Wings hockey?

Well, good news. You're about to get a taste of the Red Wings' future.

While the rest of the hockey world is just beginning to settle in until mid-September, prospects from around the league are getting ready for their moment in the sun at this year's IIHF World Junior Championship (Aug. 9-20) in Edmonton, Alberta, in just a few weeks.

And once again, you'll be wanting to keep an eye on Team Sweden to catch several future Red Wings in action. Forward Theodor Niederbach and defensemen Simon Edvinsson and William Wallinder are all expected to compete for the Swedes.

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.
