In Red Wings Land

‘I can do it’: Svechnikov relentlessly pursues spot on Red Wings after grinding through rehab | Detroit News

Hearing the doubters say that maybe Svechnkov will not be able to come all the way back, maybe will not ever be the same player again – that’s what stirring him.

“I just want to go out there and show my name,” Svechnikov said. “I’m Evgeny Svechnikov, I was drafted for a reason and I’m here for a reason. I want to be part of the future, and I want to do that for myself and the fans and for everybody.

“I’m looking forward to doing it.”

Man, I really want to see this kid come back and succeed.

These are pretty cool. I like the Red Wings jersey and I love the idea overall.
