The Daily: Red Wings’ Kasper Won’t Be At WJC; Mantha Disappointing?



Marko Kasper, 2022 NHL enry draft prospect

The Austrians have already decided not to bring Marco Kasper to the upcoming World Junior Championships even though he is eligible to play.

The Austrian Federation justified the decision by saying that it wants to put the focus on Kasper playing for the senior team at this spring’s World Championships. The decision is a disappointment for Detroit fans who were hoping to see him play against the world’s best teenagers.

Kasper is Rogle’s No. 1 center with 12 points in 22 games. He’s +10 with a whopping 37 penalty minutes for a Swedish Hockey League team that has been disappointing this season.

Even if Kasper has to start in Grand Rapids, bringing Kasper to North America next season could be the best game plan. He has already established that he is one of the best all-round performers for the 2022 draft.

Red Wings In Case You Missed It

Goaltender Ville Husso played brilliantly yet again to carry the Detroit Red Wings to a 4-2 win against the Tampa Bay Lightning Tuesday night.

Five reasons why defenseman Filip Hronek is a force again for the Detroit Red Wings. His confidence is overflowing. He picked up two more assists against Tampa Bay.

Playing in Tampa was homecoming for former Lightning assistant Derek Lalonde. He has plenty of fond memories from his days in Tampa.

The Red Wings’ Next Game

The Red Wings (13-7-5)  play the Florida Panthers  (12-10-4) Thursday in the third game of their four-game road trip. Coach Derek Lalonde’s Red Wings won the first two games of the road trip against the Columbus Blue Jackets and Tampa Bay Lightning.
