In the category of "silver linings for fans of awful teams", the Red Wings are accelerating the youth movement this season. Dennis Cholowski - #20 pick in 2016 Christoffer Ehn - #106 pick in 2014 Filip Hronek - #53 pick in 2016 Libor Sulak - Undrafted signing (24yrs old) Michael Rasmussen - #9 pick in 2017 Will all make their first NHL game tonight. On top of that Joe Hicketts will play in his 6th game. Later in the season we are sure to see Evgeni Svechnikov (injured) and Filip Zadina up with the big club. Possibly players like Givani Smith and Axel Holmstrom as well. Is this the year where the Wings finally go from being the 'old' team to becoming known as a young team on the rise?
