Lastly, the Detroit Red Wings need to consider Marco Rossi, beyond that this slide ties everything together with a brief look at the draft as a whole with regards to the Yzer-plan.

Marco Rossi- Forward

One of the other common names being tossed around for the 2020 NHL Entry Draft has been forward Marco Rossi out of Switzerland. The 5-foot-9, 185-pound center has been playing his amateur hockey in the OHL with the Ottawa 67’s.

In 2019-20, Rossi played 56 total games where he scored 39 goals and tallied 81 assists for 120 points for the 67’s of the OHL. Rossi’s point totals are an explanation for his explosiveness on the ice that he uses to make things happen and put the puck in the net, or at minimum, create scoring chances.

More from Detroit Red Wings

Rossi is one of the prospects who has been talked about as someone the Red Wings would be selecting with the fourth overall selection.

He is a skilled player who uses his speed to make things happen, whether that is in the offensive zone or as the moves up the ice from the neutral zone in transition.

At the end of the day, the organization will be adding another top-tier talent.

The expectation is that this player will end up in the organization’s top-six forwards, top pairing of defenseman, or in the crease on a nightly basis.

It will fall into the hands of Yzerman and what he feels is best for this organization, but the fourth overall selection should allow the Red Wings to continue going through their rebuild.

Not to mention the draft capital the Red Wings have should allow Yzerman to keep his Yzer-plan on schedule and functioning well.

After Tampa Bay’s recent success, built of some incredibly successful drafts, in year two of Yzerman controlled drafts, fans should be excited.
