In Red Wings Land
"I was part of a little league baseball team and we were the Tigers. I had the Old English D on the hat and I wore that everywhere. And then I played a lot of NHL video games when I was really little with my cousins and I was always the Red Wings."— Detroit Lions PR (@LionsPR) April 26, 2019

Craig Button has the Wings taking Russian winger Vasili Podkolzin at #6 in his latest mock.
TSN Director of Scouting Craig Button: The Red Wings get a winger who has a game that reminds some of franchise great Pavel Datsyuk.
I don’t think I’d complain if Podkolzin fell to #6. Recently he’s been projected as high as the third most talented player in this draft. I’m sure Steve Yzerman & co. will do their homework on whether he’s going to stay over in Russia or not. With all that said, my personal preference is still Alex Turcotte.
