Roster Insights

It’s a talented roster that includes all of the Red Wings first-round picks in the last three years. Michael Rasmussen will have a lot of eyes on him as he looks to make a case for a possible first season in the pro leagues.

Other players who will look to impress are the number of free agent invitees who were invited to participate. This could be their shot at potentially being signed into the Wings farm system.
