Tweets from Monday’s practice: makeshift group of Wings skates

The Detroit Red Wings removed Carter Rowney, Givani Smith, Pius Suter, coach Jeff Blashill and assistant coach Alex Tanguay from COVID protocols before Monday’s practice, but that left 8 players in COVID protocols–Lucas Raymond, Nick Leddy, Jordan Oesterle, Sam Gagner, Alex Nedeljkovic, Filip Zadina, Joe Veleno and Adam Erne.

The Red Wings are still scheduled to play in Long Island against the New York Islanders on Wednesday (7:30 PM EST start) and host Washington on Saturday (7:30 PM EST start).

So the “skeleton crew” (using coach Jeff Blashill’s words from yesterday’s presser) hit the ice just after 12 PM for a skate at the Belfor Training Center attached to Little Caesars Arena:
