In Red Wings Land
There’s more to the article than just what the title mentions. Khan(!) touches on Givani Smith’s and Michael Rasmussen’s respective seasons coming to an end. I found this note a little interesting:
It might have been his final junior game. The Red Wings are hoping Rasmussen makes the NHL roster out of training camp. They have him projected as their third-line left wing next season before transitioning to center, his natural position, the following season.
We all kind of knew Ken Holland & co were going to give Rasmussen a chance to make the roster this fall, but this is the first I’ve see any real potential lineup plans for him (other than the eventually moving to center part).
Around the League
Good decision by the NHL and the Department of Player Safety.
