Red Wings have ‘good chance’ to sign Finnish D-man Oliwer Kaski | MLive
The right-shooting Kaski had 19 goals and 51 points in 59 games for Pelicans in Finland’s SM-liiga this season. He spent the previous two seasons with HIFK Helsinki. He played at Western Michigan in 2015-16 (four goals, 12 points in 31 games) before returning to Finland after just one game the following season.
Sounds good to me. The Red Wings should absolutely take a flyer on this guy. You can’t win the lottery if you don’t play, right?
