Khan scouts Adam Erne

MLive’s Ansar Khan examines Red Wings trade acquisition Adam Erne this morning, issuing a season outlook for the rough-and-tumble forward:

2019-20 outlook: New general manager Steve Yzerman traded for a player he drafted 33rd overall in 2013 to provide depth on the bottom two lines. Erne will provide a physical presence and might occasionally drop the gloves (one of his four career NHL fighting majors was against new teammate Andreas Athanasiou).

Erne doesn’t figure to kill penalties but saw limited power-play time in Tampa Bay (30 seconds per game) and could be used in that capacity with the Red Wings on occasion.
