He joins four other Red Wings players and prospects who will begin the season in Europe and are scheduled to returrn before NHL training camps open.

The other players are Moritz Seider (Mannheim, Germany), Filip Zadina (HC Ocelari Trinec, Czech Republic), Gustav Lindstrom (Almtuna, Sweden) and Mathias Brome (Orebro HK, Sweden).

Hronek, 22, led the team’s defensemen with nine goals and 31 points in 65 goals.
