The Red Wings acquired Adam Erne, 25, from the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for a fourth-round pick in the 2020 NHL Draft. He suited up for 56 games in Detroit last season, putting up five points (2-3—5) before a lower-body injury ended his season.
Hirose, 24, signed with Detroit as a free agent in March of 2019. He’s played 36 games in the NHL since then, putting up 14 points (3-11—14). Hirose has since spent time in Grand Rapids, where he put decent numbers — including 22 assists in 35 contests. Hirose, a former Big Ten Player of the Year, appeared in 106 games for the Michigan State Spartans where he posted 116 points (33-83—116).
