Red Wings “News”
Nothing that’s official news, but I did stumble across a post on Instagram that showed Dylan Larkin, Vlad Namestnikov, and UFA Artem Anisimov all skating together in Detroit:

My guess is that we might see Anisimov on a PTO contract soon.
Around The NHL
Veteran goaltender Anders Nilsson is retiring due to concussion symptoms and problems with his neck.
These are always sad to see, but I feel happy for him that he’s making the decision that will be better for his health. Best of luck and health to Anders Nilsson.
