Tweet of note from Red Wings Prospects: JVP back in the mix?

I’m a little skeptical of this report, but Red Wings Prospects on Twitter notes that EHC Biel goaltender Joren Van Pottelberghe, who is now 24, is doing very well for the Swiss League team, and may or may not have battled his way back into the Wings’ future plans:

DET 2015 4th round pick Joren van Pottelberghe has quietly developed into a top goalie in the Swiss National League. The Red Wings still hold his rights and it seems like they may be interested in signing him at some point.

The 6’3,” 215-pound Van Pottelberghe was drafted by the Wings back in 2015, and EliteProspects has his record as 16-7-and-1 over 25 games with EHC, having registered a 2.12 GAA and a .924 save percentage.

I’m not sure whether the Red Wings are really interested in him unless he’d be willing to play in the AHL.
