Daily Faceoff’s Chris Peters was tasked with listing a set of 32 prospects to watch during the World Junior Championship in Edmonton starting on Christmas Day, and his pick for the Red Wings is a good one:
Detroit Red Wings: Simon Edvinsson, D, Sweden
The Red Wings have eight prospects in the tournament, but the one I’m most looking forward to seeing is Edvinsson, who has been having a phenomenal year in Sweden. He does a little bit of everything, but has really seen his offensive game blossom this year. As a 6-foot-5 defenseman with outstanding mobility, he should play major minutes for Sweden in this tournament.
Others: G Sebastian Cossa (CAN), C Red Savage (USA), RW Carter Mazur (USA), D Dononvan Sebrango (CAN), D Eemil Viro (FIN), G Jan Bednar (CZE), C Theodor Niederbach (SWE)
