The Red Wings took part in their final preseason practice on Monday morning, with the Wings taking to the ice very early at the BELFOR Training Center the morning after the team’s 3rd and final Red vs. White Game.
Red Wings play-by-play announcer Ken Kal spotted an unnamed player taking to the ice alone at 8:30, an hour-and-a-half before practice was set t obegin:

Update: The beat writers showed up at 11:09 AM:
Evgeny Svechnikov is out on the ice this morning— Max Bultman (@m_bultman) January 11, 2021
Evgeny Svechnikov, who left last Tuesday’s scrimmage with what appeared to be an arm injury, practiced today, was with Grand Rapids group.— Helene St. James (@HeleneStJames) January 11, 2021
I will say, after missing almost a week, the odds of Svechnikov being ready and in the lineup for opening night against Carolina look pretty slim. But, they’ll play the Canes 8 times this year, so if you’re hoping for the #SvechBowl as much as @SaraCivian and I are… great news— Max Bultman (@m_bultman) January 11, 2021
