Quick Hits: The Hrobbery Edition
In Red Wings Land
There have been some questions about why Red Wings claimed Magnus Hellberg. I double checked, and here is one option that it opens up in helping Alex Nedeljkovic potentially get his game back together. (1/thread)— Sean Shapiro (@seanshapiro) November 28, 2022
Detroit with 3 goalies on roster, since claiming Hellberg, can send Nedeljkovic to the AHL on a conditioning stint for as many starts as he can get in two weeks. Hellberg can backup Husso during that time. (3/thread)— Sean Shapiro (@seanshapiro) November 28, 2022
Detroit wasn't getting the play from the AHL goalies it wanted as a reliable No. 3/call-up option. So Hellberg provided that, but he also becomes a moving piece that allows Nedeljkovic to get things going with multiple starts. (5/thread)— Sean Shapiro (@seanshapiro) November 28, 2022
This is a pretty good idea. You can’t just forever bounce the two backups for conditioning stints (and you also have to have player consent to be sent on one), but it’s a pretty decent idea.
