First Wolverine Red Wing since Aaron Ward in the early 2000s.
you explain right innthread title that glendening is not only a former wolverine but a captain to boot.
Does that mean he's going to sit on the Wings bench next year? I.e. is this different than signing with the Griffins or may he still end up in GR next year.
He probably won't be a regular Wing and mostly play for the Griffins but could be called up or play some. The Wings have a fuck ton of prospects for the next few years but he very well could prove himself.
I'm sure he feels at home in GR for now since, well, he's from grand rapids so it's literally home
This is an upgrade on his contract; he previously had an AHL-only "tryout" contract. It makes him a true prospect of the organization.
It's a 2-way deal and there are TONS of forwards ahead of Luke right now, so don't expect him in the NHL too soon.
Good for Glendening. Detroit is rapidly approaching the the 50 contract limit (I think this is 49) so this is a big vote of confidence that he's a) a guy they'd like to keep around Grand Rapids and b) somebody they can call up in an emergency and count on to fill a role.
Finally a Wolverine in the organization (solidified anyways)
here's hoping to snag Hagelin next year when he's a UFA (right? because isn't he a RFA this year?)
If we had Hags and Alfie the same year we basically would have the Swedish national team. Which would be amazing.
can I get that hat?
About a year and 3 months ago I would have said you were crazy if you told me Like would sign with an NHL team. Congrats to Luke!!!
I know I will get downvoted (again) because I am a Blue Jacket fan but there is a lot of talk about Jack Johnson being made "the captain"....
So can't upvote a fellow Jackets fan, but after seeing his play and leadership, and hearing him talk last season, it wouldn't surprise me.
let me get this straight -- you have ties to the state of Michigan, which would give you obvious justification to be a Red Wings fan, yet you choose to be a Blue Jacket fan? Thats...odd.
