Kulfan on Rasmussen’s roster spot

The Detroit News’s Ted Kulfan penned an article regarding Michael Rasmussen having made the Wings’ roster. Rasmussen is still all business regarding his status:

It wasn’t overly dramatic, or with plenty of hugs and hand-slaps, with an overbundance of smiles and laughter, either.

Which is probably just fine with Red Wings rookie Michael Rasmussen.

When Rasmussen, a 2017 1st-round draft pick, was told he was staying in the NHL, the news was delivered in a no-frills manner. Just like Rasmussen.

“Blash (coach Jeff Blashill) was there, Kenny (general manager Ken Holland), Ryan (assistant GM Ryan Martin) and Shawn (Horcoff, director of player development) was there, and they just told me that I’m staying and just keep going,” Rasmussen said. “They’re happy for me and want me to do well, keep going and do my best. Obviously I put a lot of work into wanting to stay here and stuff so it’s pretty good.”

  1. There is a reason Zadina is rated a lot higher (Wings Prospects and League prospects) than Ras. I hope he can wake up and play Like a Big Man with skill in the NHL
