Three things: Profiling Trevor Hamilton and Alec Regula, and Tweets of note

Of Red Wings-related note this morning:

1. The Grand Rapids Griffins posted a video profiling defenseman Trevor Hamilton:

2. MLive’s Ansar Khan posted a profile of fellow Wings prospect Alec Regula:

Regula described himself as a two-way defenseman. He produced seven goals and 18 assists in 67 games in his first OHL season.

“I think I can contribute offensively, but I really pride myself on my defense,” the right-shooting Regula said. “I got a good stick and good gaps. I think I got a lot to work on. I think I’m kind of a project for the Wings. I need to get my footwork going and I got to get a lot stronger, better endurance, all these things are what it takes to move to the next level.”

A pro career became a realistic goal for him following his lone season with the USHL Chicago Steel that was capped by a Clark Cup championship in 2016-17.

In London, he was paired with Evan Bouchard, a player the Red Wings might have selected at No. 6 if Filip Zadina weren’t available. Bouchard went 10th overall to the Edmonton Oilers.

“Every single night we were facing the other team’s top line and that’s something that helped me a lot,” Regula said.
