Wakiji examines Seth Barton’s 2018-19 campaign

DetroitRedWings.com’s Dana Wakiji examines Red Wings prospect Seth Barton’s 2018-19 campaign this morning, discussing Barton’s freshman season at UMass-Lowell and speaking with Wings director of player development Shawn Horcoff regarding the lanky defenseman:

Quotable: “Seth is a guy that we didn’t know too much about as a development staff last year. He came in and he impressed obviously in camp. He was just a small, scrawny kid but had good vision, moved the puck well, and then thanks to injury, got thrust into a bigger role in college and did very well. We were really happy with his year last year. He’s another kid though that just needs to put strength on. It’s going to take time. He’s in that process and he’s doing well.” — Shawn Horcoff, Red Wings director of player development
