Talking about Taro Hirose’s 2018-19 campaign’s Dana Wakiji discusses significant figures from Taro Hirose’s abbreviated 2018-19 campaign, as well as Hirose’s take on jumping into the Red Wings’ lineup after completing his NCAA season with Michigan State this past spring:

Quotable II: “Ending my season at Michigan State to the next couple of days playing at Madison Square Garden was definitely surreal. Playing on the road you sort of get acclimated to everything, spend a lot of time on the road with the guys. I jumped right in, didn’t have to think too much about it. When you’re in warmups and see Sidney Crosby, that was sort of a wow moment. We played (Evgeni) Malkin and (Phil) Kessel and those guys and sort of seeing what those guys do a shift by shift basis, how effective they are, it was definitely something … there’s a lot of good players and those guys take it to the next level.” — Hirose

One thought on “Talking about Taro Hirose’s 2018-19 campaign”

  1. I am not going to dump “tons” of stupid non english comments from his coach. Unreal. Hirose seems to have a lot aside from 5’10” 160 lbs.

    Wings don’t have many Hulks at the forward position to give Hirose some room and save his life.

    Hope everything goes well in GR to start the season
