Red Wings post latest blog entry from Givani Smith

Red Wings prospect Givani Smith posted a blog entry on today, and Smith discusses

My summer’s been going pretty good. I’ve been training in Detroit since June at Barwis Methods. It’s pretty much a repetitive day. I wake up in the morning pretty early, then grab a bite to eat for breakfast. Then head over to Barwis for a workout, 9:00 lift. Then from there, we do a full-body workout for about two hours. Then I head down to Little Caesars Arena to skate. I’m with other prospects (and) guys who signed with the Grand Rapids team. On a daily basis, it’s myself, Filip Zadina, Troy Loggins, Alec Regula, Taro Hirose, Ryan Kuffner, Vili Saarijarvi, Evgeny’s also there, Svechnikov and Joe Veleno, him as well. We see each other pretty much every day. We hang out, too, while working out and training, we talk a lot. Pretty much the only people we really see besides our trainers and the medical staff and stuff like that. So we kind of formed a secure bond.
