Red Wings post Jon Merrill’s Zoom call

The Red Wings just posted Jon Merrill’s Zoom call with the Wings’ beat writers…

Jon Merrill is really excited to be a Red Wing. Said they were the first team that called, and he had promised himself earlier in life that if the chance to play for the Red Wings, he would jump on it. Now, he will. Said it feels like he just made it.— Max Bultman (@m_bultman) October 9, 2020

“It’s an honor to play for the Red Wing,” newly-signed defenseman Jon Merrill said.

He grew up going to games, practices at Joe Louis Arena. The @umichhockey product is wearing a Michigan hat for his Zoom presser.— Brad Galli (@BradGalli) October 9, 2020

Merrill played with Luke Glendening at U-M and Glenny has already reached out; also knows Danny DeKeyser from his brother playing with DK in youth hockey. Said his favorite #RedWings was NIcklas Lidstrom growing up— Ted Kulfan (@tkulfan) October 9, 2020
