The Red Wing scouting staff are pleased to see the progress of a couple of their picks at this years WJC. Emanual Peter was rated higher by the Red Wing scouts than most when they selected him in the 3rd round (76th overall) whereas he went slightly later in the NHL at 142nd. Management never questioned their decision and have been pleased to see Emanual lead the Swiss team in scoring at the WJC at a point per game pace. “We hope after one more season Emanual will be prepared to come to camp” said GM Niece Steven Werner has been equally impressive as his sniping skills have been on display. With 4 goals in 4 games he finished the round robin portion tied for 3rd. With a little work on defence Werner could be ready as early the 2005-06 season.
