Khan scouts Patrik Nemeth

MLive’s Ansar Khan issues a 2019-2020 season outlook for Red Wings free agent signing Patrik Nemeth this morning:

Nemeth essentially replaces the retired Niklas Kronwall. He’s strictly a stay-at-home defensive defenseman who’ll block shots and be among the team leaders in penalty-killing minutes and won’t provide much offense.

A left-handed shooter, he is slotted to play on one of the top two pairings, with a more offensive-minded right-handed shooter, either Mike Green or Filip Hronek.

His role diminished a bit last season in Colorado, where he logged less ice time and was a healthy scratch for most of the second playoff round. But he figures to log around 20 minutes a game with the Red Wings.
