Khan wonders whether the Wings should pursue Kevin Shattenkirk

The New York Rangers bought out Kevin Shattenkirk today, and MLive’s Ansar Khan wonders aloud whether the Wings should pursue the 30-year-old defenseman’s services:

Shattenkirk, 30, was one of the top players in the 2017 free-agent class. The Rangers signed him to a four-year, $26.6 million contract, but he was made expendable due to his lack of production and their acquisition of Jacob Trouba from Winnipeg, who the Rangers inked two weeks ago to a seven-year, $56 million extension.

A knee injury limited Shattenkirk (6-0, 206) to 46 games in 2017-18, when he tallied 23 points. He appeared in 73 games last season, picking up only two goals and 26 assists.
