The Detroit Red Wings have recalled five players ahead of the 2020-21 season.
As the Detroit Red Wings continue to move toward the beginning of the 2020-21 season, they will head into a brief training camp before their January 14th matchup against the Carolina Hurricanes. However, before that begins, they have recalled five players from their overseas loans.
As the NHL offseason was well underway, leagues overseas like the Swedish Hockey League (SHL), the Finnish Liiga, and others found ways to get their seasons underway. The Red Wings saw this as an opportunity to get their players back on the ice after quite the break due to the stoppage from the COVID-19 pandemic. That being said, they loaned players out left and right; now they are starting to return.
These five players will rejoin the team and playing for spots on the roster or taxi squad during training camp. Mathias Bromé, Michael Rasmussen, and Filip Zadina were the three forwards who were recalled. Two defensemen, Filip Hronek and Gustav Lindström, were both recalled from their respective clubs as well.
The Red Wings tweeted out the official announcement though some players have already begun prepping for a return or have already returned to the United States in accordance with the protocols in place.
That being said, take a brief look at how each of these players did in the respective league they played in on their respective overseas loans before their return.
