In Red Wings Land
The 2018 draft saw the Wings cash in on the Tomas Tatar trade and use Vegas’ first-round pick into Joe Veleno, one of four picks the Wings made within the first 36 picks and among 10 total. Several of the draft picks figure to be a key part of the rebuild.

This also means that the pick traded to Detroit for Green’s rights will be Edmonton’s 2020 4th rounder. There was a condition in the deal that could have upgraded it to a 2021 3rd rounder based on playoff performance.

I don’t think any of us was expectin that pick to graduate anyway.
