Wings prospect netminder Victor Brattstrom will benefit from team’s demotion

DetroitRedWings.com’s Arthur J. Regner posted a “By the Numbers” examination of Red Wings prospect Victor Brattstrom’s 2018-2019 season. Regner’s article includes both sets of statistics from the Swedish goaltender’s season and an assessment of the 22-year-old’s progress from Wings goaltending coach Brian Mahoney-Wilson:

” He got better this year in Timra, with a good goalie coach over in Sweden. Timra was deferred to the Allsvenskan league because they were a marginal team in the SHL, but it’ll be a really good situation for Victor because he’ll probably play 45-50 games, which he didn’t have that luxury last year because he was playing with Niklas Svedberg. The thing is, by the end of the year, he was outplaying Svedberg. One, due to his work ethic, and also the quality of starts he had.” – Brian Mahoney-Wilson, Red Wings goaltending development coach
