Quick Hits: The Clock is Ticking Edition

In Red Wings Land

Steve Yzerman makes minor move; more coming for Detroit Red Wings as trade deadline looms? | Freep

Goloubef, 30, has played 24 games with the Ottawa Senators this season, tallying two points. He’s 6-feet-1, 190 pounds and shoots right. Goloubef is a depth guy whose role could expand if Yzerman unloads pending UFA veteran defensemen Mike Green and/or Trevor Daley, neither of whom fits into the Wings’ future. The return for either wouldn’t be much – maybe a conditional fourth-round pick for Green, lower for Daley – but Yzerman is on the hunt for draft picks as he seeks to stoke the rebuild.

The clock is ticking. We’ll see what Yzerman has up his sleeve.
