Audio from the second day of Red Wings training camp ’19: Taro Hirose, Moritz Seider, Luke Glendening, Patrik Nemeth and coach Jeff Blashill

The Detroit Red Wings engaged in a spirited set of drills during the second day of training camp, and after their on-ice workouts, the Red Wings made the following players available to the media:

Taro Hirose spoke with the press regarding his attempts to earn a spot on the Wings’ roster, his desire to impress during his first training camp and more:

Moritz Seider spoke with the press and was his confident, direct self, discussing what it would take to stick in North America, his desire to become both a “better player and a better person” under the guidance of the Wings’ leaders, and what he brings to the table as a player:

Luke Glendening addressed the addition of an alternate captain’s “A” to his jersey, he talked about how he can help lead the team on and off the ice, his busy summer (he got married) and what Mike Barwis can bring to the team as their director of sports science:

Patrik Nemeth was a refreshingly positive fellow who believes that the Red Wings are closer to turning their team around than most anyone else suggests, with Nemeth suggesting that the Wings can in fact build from the defensive foundation that he will help establish on out:

Coach Blashill spoke for 10 minutes, addressing the aforementioned players, whether Hirose, Seider or Filip Zadina might make the team out of training camp, his take on the Red vs. White game to come and his status as playing in tonight’s “Celebrity and Alumni Game”:
