The 2022 NHL Draft is all done which means its time for the Detroit Red Wings development camp. General Manager Steve Yzerman enjoys the chance to see his prospects up close.
“For a few reasons we really like it,” Yzerman said. “It’s an opportunity. The European kids and the college kids, that’s our only time we have really to spend with them throughout the year.”

Yzerman and his staff get the opportunity to see the prospects front and center, which noted in the team’s press release, that 13 of the current Red Wings on the roster played in the camp.
For Detroit’s general manager, it’s a great time to get to know his players better.
“For some of them, it will be the first time I get to see them and to meet them,” Yzerman said. “I’m excited about it. I can talk about (2022 first round pick) Marco (Kasper) a little bit. Obviously I’m more familiar with that pick.
“I’ll get a chance to see some of these other kids and meet them in person and get to know them. It’s another step in the process. I’m excited about seeing the kids.”
