Joe Veleno shares some pre-tournament thoughts in the ‘Taking Flight’ blog

Just in time for the opening day of the Red Wings’ 2019 prospect tournament, Joe Veleno has penned an entry in his blog, “Taking Flight–From the Q to the D”:

Hi everybody, it’s hard to imagine the summer has flown by, but for me it was a good summer. I spent most of it in Detroit, just working out, skating and training, but I was also able to spend time with my friends and family, enjoying my time to relax and at the same time, I really enjoyed my summer training.

Staying in Detroit, I am starting to get a feel for the city. I’ve kind of explored a little bit throughout the summer and I’m getting to know more of the areas around here. Detroit seems like a really nice place and very welcoming. It’s all been good. I went to go see a lot of sporting events. I’ve been pretty impressed with that, with all the sports they have in the city, how many fans they get, whether it’s baseball or football or whatever the event is, they’ve got a pretty good fan base here. My family came down and they seemed to like it as well. It’s a nice place to walk around. You get to see a lot of cool things you don’t really see in Canada. I guess the culture is a little different.

  1. I have taken on Veleno as a Favorite (Jinx,LOL). This kid has Larkin like character and has moved up the ranks quickly. If hre has NHL skill he will have a long career. He may make the NHL quicker than Zadina, Veleno made his 200′ training before prospect camp.
    Very good #30 pick. He reminds me of a former Wing even going way back, can’t nail it down yet.

    I am not sure I like talking heads with all their destined for GR crap. Most haven’t been to Traverse or a NHL pre season or Stevie Y’s , players will make the team based on merit (will see on that one?). I expect Holland Like BS
