Winging It In Motown

Red Wings draft pick Kienan Draper commits to Michigan hockey – MLive

The 2020 seventh-round pick of the Wings is playing this season with the Chilliwack Chiefs in the British Columbia Hockey League and will join the Wolverines next fall. The 6-foot-1, 198-pound forward played youth hockey in metro Detroit for the Little Caesars organization.

I don’t have any expectations that this is going to turn to be anything other than a nepotism pick but it’s free to hope the kid develops into something amazing.

“Toughest decision I ever made in my career..to leave all my teammates and trainers who have been like a family to me for the last 3 years,” Komarov wrote in his post. “It hurts me more than anyone could think. Let’s put all the rumors away, I made this decision myself. Nobody else did it for me.

“… Big thank you to the fans who supported and cheered for me. It means a lot. I hope you guys are gonna win the cup.”

All I can think of Komarov is him slamming Pavel Datsyuk’s head on the ice while Datsyuk was down. Good riddance.
