I believe he was also MVP of the tourny too.

Yes, Abdelkader had the game winning goal and was named Most Outstanding Player. Personally, I thought Jeff Lerg should have been named MOP.

Abdelkader finished third in scoring for MSU, with 15 goals and 18 assists in 38 games.

I went to the Michigan State game tonight against Windsor University, Justin looked pretty good winning 15 of 19 faceoffs that he took and got an assist and did not shy away from physical play against a much bigger team. Michigan State won the game 6-0. However, the best player on the ice was freshman Corey Tropp who scored two goals and was very physical. His rights are owned by Buffalo, it would be great the Wings could find a way to get him.

Abdelkader is off to a good start with 9 points in 9 games. From what I've read, he's been the best faceoff man as well.

well tonight he seemed very ineffective in the game at the GLI, i did like how he plays physically and has good hands and quick feet

but he, along with the other people on MSU's powerplay sucked big time...that was not the game i was expecting

Kudos to Teeman for the Sig

Went to the MSU/UNO game last night. I've seen Abdelkader play a lot and this was the best game I've seen him play. He didn't have any points but was physical, was good with the puck, and didn't turn it over: Just the kind of player the Wings want him to be. He got way to much hype early in his career and that hurt him. Still a big guy and a lot of a talent and potential. Needs to leave MSU after this year and sign with the Wings as suspected that he will.

Little article on him in Detnews. Coach is afraid he will be traded, simply because of teams wanting prospects.

Needs work on offense
Comley is happy with Abdelkader's development, but wants him to continue to improve at the offensive end. Abdelkader is responding to Comley's wishes.

Big decision upcoming
Abdelkader is happy with the progress he has made at Michigan State. He should be. He has seven goals and 11 points in the last 10 games, leading the Spartans (18-6-5, 14-3-3) to a 6-1-3 record to pull within three points of the CCHA leader, No. 1 Miami.

Abdelkader said he will think more about his future after the season.

"Right now I'm just focusing on this season," Abdelkader said. "It's pretty awesome to be playing for a league championship. Every game is like a playoff game right now. I'll sit down and talk about things after the season, but I certainly wouldn't frown on coming back for my senior year."

Wings coach Mike Babcock stresses shooting the puck. Abdelkader is making sure he gets his share of shots, taking eight Friday in a 5-4 overtime loss to Nebraska-Omaha. He had two goals and an assists.

"He's skillful and hard-working," said Spartans junior goaltender Jeff Lerg. "He's aggressive and has a good shot. He's real strong on his stick and doesn't get knocked off of it easily."


"He's been a tremendous player for us," Comley said. "He plays hard every night. He still has to grow offensively. He's strong and powerful. He has a great future."

"If he can play in Detroit, I think he should leave (after this season). If he's just going to play for Grand Rapids, I think he should stay for his senior year because he's still developing. I trust Kenny (Holland). I know he'll do what's best for him. I just fear he'll be traded. Teams want prospects."

Wings general manager Ken Holland checked on Abdelkader's progress firsthand when the Spartans played Michigan Jan. 25 in Ann Arbor.

"He's a big, physical kid," Holland said. "I can see him as a third-line center in the NHL."

What the heck does it matter if his last name is Muslim, Jewish, Arabic, or Australian? If he is a good person and a good hockey player, it shouldn't matter.

I hate to stereotype, but he's a white boy from around Muskegon. Good chance he's not an Arab.
