In Red Wings Land

Red Wings prospect Michael Rasmussen dominates again in WHL playoffs | Freep

Rasmussen, 19, is making a strong case to be on next year’s Red Wings squad. He had a good camp last year, and will come into this autumn’s camp on the strength of a phenomenal playoff performance and, presumably, a good summer in the gym. If Rasmussen doesn’t make the Wings, he will have to go back to juniors because he has a year left of eligibility.

Michael Rasmussen has 29 points (14G, 15A) in 11 playoff games for the Tri-City Americans. At this point, I’d be more surprised if he didn’t make the Red Wings roster out of training camp next season.
