Detroit Free Press

The list of Detroit Red Wings loaned overseas has grown to eight.

With the coronavirus pandemic forcing the NHL and AHL to delay the start of the 2020-21 season till at least December, the Wings have loaned center Michael Rasmussen to the Graz (Austria) 99ers.

Earlier this week, the Wings loaned defenseman Jared McIsaac to Finnish team HPK. The Wings have loaned multiple players to teams in Europe: Defenseman Moritz Seider, Mannheim (DEL); defenseman Filip Hronek, Mountfield HK (Czech); forward Filip Zadina, HC Ocelari Trinec (Czech); defenseman Gustav Lindstrom and goaltender Filip Larsson, both Almtuna (Swe-2) and forward Mathias Brome, Orebro (SHL).

Everyone on loan can be recalled at the Wings’ discretion.
