5 Detroit Red Wings Prospects who could make it to the NHL in 2022

Octopus Thrower

Through the rebuild, the Detroit Red Wings have been stockpiling prospects and draft choices in order to expedite the return to the glory years of winning Stanley Cups, and playing in 25 consecutive playoffs.

This season, the Red Wings have added Moritz Seider, Lucas Raymond, and Joe Veleno to the roster in the hope that the younger players could improve the roster.  Seider and Raymond have played above expectations as Raymond is leading the team in scoring and Seider is now the best defenseman in the organization.

The Red Wings are so loaded with prospects that as many as 10 Red Wings draftees could play in the World Junior Tournament after Christmas.

Here are five players who should be next in line for a spot on the Red Wings in 2022.

Jonatan Berggren-RW/LW

Age: 21

Draft: 2018, Round 2, #33 Overall

2021 Team: Grand Rapids (AHL)

2021 Stats:

GP: 15

G: 

A: 6

PTS: 12

PM: 0

+/-: +3

Jonatan Berggren is in the first year of his entry-level contract with Detroit.  Berggren is improving by leap and bounds every week and looks like a top prospect for the Red Wings.

He will likely get an opportunity with Detroit after the trade deadline in March.  Next year, Berggren should make Detroit out of training camp and could play a middle-six role for the Red Wings.
