Quick Hits: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly Edition

In Red Wings Land

Red Wings’ Anthony Mantha suspended, Dylan Larkin being evaluated at worlds | Detroit News

It’s good news for Dylan Larkin because his injury doesn’t seem super serious, but he’s out for the rest of the World Championships.

On the flip side, it’s bad news for Anthony Mantha because he’s dominating over in Slovakia at the World Championships, but can’t play next game because he’s suspended. Although, in my opinion, he definitely deserved to get a game. It was a bad hit.

Kakko closes gap on Hughes in TSN Hockey’s Mock Draft 4.0 | TSN

Craig Button once again mocks center Dylan Cozens to the Red Wings at #6. His top five consists of Jack Hughes, Kaapo Kakko, Bowen Byram, Kirby Dach and Cole Caufield. If that’s how things play out before the Wings pick, I’d prefer they take Alex Turcotte over Cozens.
