In Red Wings Land

Michigan hockey hires Red Wings consultant, ex-Wolverine Brandon Naurato as assistant coach - MLive

In Detroit, Naurato worked with the Red Wings and their American Hockey League affiliate Grand Rapids Griffins’ coaching staffs to implement individual skill development into the team identity, which included devising individualized plans for each player with a focus on current analytics trends.

He’s taking his Jutsu to the Wolverines.

I’m curious what this change will mean for the Wings’ and Griffins’ individual skill development. He had a good reputation with us and career-wise this is a step up for him, but I care more about the Wings than I do the Wolverines.
