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).
