Audio from the 3rd day of the Red Wings’ summer development camp ’19: Taro Hirose, Jack Adams, Filip Larsson and Malte Setkov

The Red Wings made four players available during the afternoon session at the summer development camp, and the players’ scrum interviews are as follows:

Taro Hirose, the poster boy for college try-out success, said that he hasn’t actually talked to many of the Wings’ NCAA try-outs save Odeen Tufto and Alex Limoges, but Hirose did say that he’s going to spend the summer in Detroit, and he’s working hard to get stronger while continuing to focus on being a shifty player that anticipates his opponents’ moves so as to maximize his small size:

Jack Adams had a tremendously difficult season off the ice as his older brother passed away, and Adams reflected upon some of his difficulties while discussing his attempts to get his 6’6,” 204-pound frame back to normal as he used hockey as a coping skill. Adams also discussed his current events major:

Filip Larsson is hard to get a a quote out of sometimes, and the “elusive goalie” spent half of his interview shrugging off questions with “maybes,” “probably’s,” and, “I think so’s,” but when he was engaged, he was refreshingly honest about not taking an AHL spot with the Grand Rapids Griffins for granted, and he really remains “in the moment” in a big way as he prepares to climb the professional ropes:

Finally, Malte Setkov, who now stands at 6’7,” spoke in his ever-easy-going manner about the advantages of being a large defenseman, his relative satisfaction with his past season in the Swedish Allsvenskan and his desire to continue building his strength as he tries to play full-time at the SHL level:
