The Detroit Red Wings are seeing production from one improbable source, forward Adam Erne, who has been finding ways to put points on the scoresheet each game. Erne was acquired by General Manager Steve Yzerman during his first offseason when he traded for him.

Erne did not do much in terms of production during the 2019-20 season for the Detroit Red Wings. However, he is on the roster once again and finding his way into the lineup. However, lately, he has actually been impressing when it comes to production.

Shockingly enough, Erne has clawed his way into the top ten in scoring among all Red Wings players. That is a chilling thought considering about two weeks ago; most fans would have preferred Erne get waived and neglected to the taxi squad.

He has surpassed his point totals from the 2019-20 season, and the former Tampa Bay Lightning product seemingly has been able to tap into some offense, giving him some life on this rebuilding Red Wings team.

As the 2020-21 season continues on, Erne has accumulated nineteen total games played where he has three goals and four assists for seven total points.

Erne is a minus-two on the season and somehow has outperformed his 2019-20 season.

Last year, Erne played in 56 total games where he had just two goals and three assists for five points while being a minus-24 rating on the season as well.

When it comes to the 2020-21 season, Erne has been able to get things going in the last five games before the Red Wings lost to the Lightning.

Erne has notched a goal and three assists for four points in the last five Red Wings contests.

This type of production is just uncalled for, and Erne frankly is somehow finding ways to get things going in the offense category.

While his trade stock maybe next to nothing, there is a VERY minimal chance that Erne rides the hot hand. If he continues to ride the hot hand and keep the scoring touch going, maybe he could play his way into the trade market.

While his return would be something along the lines of a bag of pucks, a seventh-round pick, or anything of that nature. If Erne manages to continue putting up points and does garner trade interest, Yzerman needs to pull the trigger and ship him out for whatever he can get.

Getting any sort of return would be more than enough, but Erne likely has to continue putting up points to garner any true interest. For the time being, Detroit Red Wings fans should just be happy that
