Blashill has had ‘a lot of good conversations’ with Yzerman about future in Detroit – 97.1 the Ticket

During the broadcast of the Red Wings’ shootout loss to the Stars on Tuesday night, NBC Sports color commentator Joe Micheletti reported on Blashill’s healthy relationship with Yzerman while discussing his future in Detroit.

“His contract expires after this season. He’s had a lot of good conversations with Steve Yzerman over the year,” Micheletti said. “They’re going to wait until the season ends and then they’ll address his situation, but he’s talked about how proud he is, especially of all these young players where he’s seen improvement.

“Is there frustration? He says, ‘Absolutely there’s frustration because we all want to win, we hate losing, and we’re not winning enough.’ But there are certainly some bright spots and the future for Detroit is certainly on the upswing.”
