Red Wings Rumblings

First up on this glorious Friday — Some accolades for one of Detroit’s brightest young stars:

Lyon Hungry For More

Alex Lyon is headed into a contract year with success and improvement on his mind. Detroit Red Wings dot com had a feature on the 31-year-old netminder yesterday, which included some praise from Detroit’s bench boss:

“Lyon provided much-needed stability in net for the Red Wings, stepping up while goaltender Ville Husso battled multiple lower-body injuries this season. Head coach Derek Lalonde said Lyon proved invaluable to Detroit.

‘Huge kudos to our management group to have the vision of not only signing him, but not (putting) him through waivers,โ€ Lalonde said about Lyon. โ€œThat’s something we discussed a lot. Thank God they didn’t. Great vision by them in the big picture of things and with his emergence, it’s exciting.'”

Yikes.
