In Red Wings Land
“Steve has a clear vision of the type of team he wants,” said Julien BriseBois, who worked with Yzerman for eight years as assistant GM, then last year as general manager when Yzerman stepped down to take a senior advisor role.
“He wants a skilled, fast team with guys who can play with pace, who have a foundation of skill, skating and hockey sense. It doesn’t matter if you’re big or small, Russian, American, Swede. As long as you could play fast-paced, skilled hockey, you would be on our list and if you were the next guy on our list, we would pick you.”
In Yzerman we trust.
There’s plenty for us Red Wings fans to watch during this year’s World Juniors tournament. The U.S. and Canada drop the puck today at 1p ET on NHL Network.
