I watched him his entire OHL career here in Saginaw (until he was traded half way through the season last year, which is typical in the OHL), and Wings fans should be excited. I'd argue he's a little tougher version of Abdelkader with a better scoring touch. He was always the first one to jump in & defend his teammates. Was a good captain here. Great pick-up!
The idea of our beloved Detroit Red Wings adding some players who play with an edge makes my head woozy with delight.
Right. Cause we've NEVER had that type of player on the wings
Years ago we did, but in the last several years - not so much.
