Defenseman Simon Edvinsson’s play in Grand Rapids receives plenty of scrutiny from the Detroit Red Wings and their fans. Likewise, Jonatan Berggren’s strong start makes fans wonder when he will be called up. But left wing prospect Cross Hanas deserves as much attention as both of those prospects.
In his first professional season, Hans has put up five goals and two assists for seven points in his first 10 games for the Grand Rapids Griffins.
The 2020 second-round pick (No. 55) has 18 shots on goal over those 10 games. Hanas managed 86 points in 63 games for the Western Hockey League’s Portland Winterhawks last season.
"He's not coming into the NHL. He's not eligible, at this point, to come into the NHL. I can't tell you that he'll ever be eligible to come into the NHL."
