The Detroit Red Wings traded down from 102nd to 114th overall in the 4th round, and the Red Wings selected forward Redmond Savage:
At 114 Red Wings pick Redmond Savage, Miami (OH) commit from the NTDP. 5-11 C/W, wore the C at World U18s for the U.S.— Max Bultman (@m_bultman) July 24, 2021

With a bit of space down low, Savage is a flashy, occasionally dynamic offensive creator. In transition, he manipulates defenders with hands and feet that transmit different information, eye deception, and nearly unmatched pace. Slip and hook passes, even when moving, and a desire to hunt the high-danger option makes him a set-up threat. And, he’s a threat from mid-range with his mechanically-sound wrister shot. -EliteProspects 2021 NHL Draft Guide
Interesting must listen to intel explaining why we believe Red Savage @redsavage_ will surpass many of his peers in the next 3/5 years of the NHL developmental time frame window due to the hard to measure “intangibles factor”… // https://t.co/24NqYapsut #DRWDraft— Sarah Lindenau (@Lindy72) July 24, 2021
At 114 Red Wings take Center/LW Redmond “Red” Savage. With a name like Redmond, you just know he’s gonna put some biscuits in the basket! Mickey will like this player lol. Welcome to Detroit. #drwdraft— Ken Kal (@KenKalDRW) July 24, 2021
114. Red Wings take top two-way center red Savage. Too low. He’s one of the best PK’er and faceoff specialists out there and put up points when Lucius was out. Really like his potential and I will stand by from ranking him in Top-32. pic.twitter.com/gBXzyw20NB— Steve Kournianos (@TheDraftAnalyst) July 24, 2021

#RedWings keeping with the hometown flavor, taking @Rsavey49 in the fourth round. He’s a Belle Tire and Compuware alum, and a product of @USAHockeyNTDP. pic.twitter.com/yDsWBkesOQ— Michael Caples (@michaelcaples) July 24, 2021
