Two items of Wings-related note: On a condensed ECHL season, and a rumor about Frans Nielsen ‘going home’ at some point

Of brief Red Wings-related note this morning:

  1. New Toledo Walleye signing Gordi Myer spoke with Ohio State University’s student newspaper, The Lantern, regarding the possibility of a condensed ECHL season for the 2020-2021 campaign. Myer told Colin Ginnan that he spent most of his offseason studying for his LSAT’s, and now he’s gearing up for hockey again:

In the meantime, ECHL teams have yet to resume official practices. In the absence of training camp, Myer began skating with a handful of his Walleye teammates who remained in the Toledo area.

“They just said it’s going to be crazy playing so many games in a short period,” Myer said. “I’m kind of looking forward to it, though, because that means you don’t practice as much and you just get to play a lot of games, which is more fun in my opinion.”

2. Elsewhere, the homepage of the Dansk Metal Ligaen, the Danish pro hockey league, reports that Frans Nielsen told his hometown newspaper, Herning Folkeblad, that he may want to finish his professional career playing for his hometown team, the Herning Blue Fox. There’s no specific date involved in Nielsen’s plan to head home, and I was unable to find the article on Herning Folkeblad’s website, but this is something worth watching.

  1. I like reading your takes on hockey, so sign me up. (I’d like to pick your brain on running a blog as well, seeing that mine is in its infancy.)
