Of Red Wings-related note this afternoon:
- The Hockey News’s Ryan Kennedy lists Kaden Fulcher among his “Prospect Need to Know” listed players in terms of Memorial Cup participants:
Kaden Fulcher, G, Hamilton Bulldogs (OHL): It’s not Fulcher’s fault the Bulldogs failed to advance to the Memorial Cup final; he had the best goalie stats of the tournament. The Detroit Red Wings prospect put up a .918 save percentage and 2.27 goals-against average in four games, using his size to his advantage. NHL arrival: 2021-22
2. In the alumni department, “Pucks and Recreation’s” John Morton reports that Corey Elkins will not return to the Grand Rapids Griffins this upcoming season:
While Elkins got to play in the Red Wings organization this past year, he has since made plans to play for the Grizzlys Wolfsburg in Germany next year. Perhaps another trip to the Alps is in store for him and his family.
