Red Wings pick USHL LW Carter Mazur — local kid and another Denver commit. 44 points in 47 games this year with Tri-City. Right-hand shot— Max Bultman (@m_bultman) July 24, 2021
At No. 70, Red Wings select their first forward in the 2021 #NHLDraft, picking Carter Mazur. A right-shot winger who collected 44 points in 47 games last season with Tri-City Storm in USHL.— Helene St. James (@HeleneStJames) July 24, 2021
Oh NOW the Wings pick a kid from Ceasars?!— Michael Petrella (@mpetrella) July 24, 2021
Another pick to like from the Detroit Red Wings: Carter Mazur is a second-year eligible whose game really took off this year. I think he made Tri-City better with his pace and work ethic. Headed to Denver also. Lots of Pios on Day 2. Had him No. 75, which was high for public list— Chris Peters (@chrismpeters) July 24, 2021
Wings go a bit off the board (if that’s even technically possible at this point) and go Carter Mazur. 19-year-old Denver commit had 44 points in 47 games with the Tri-City storm last season #LGRW— nolan bianchi (@nolanbianchi) July 24, 2021
