Found July 13, 2013 on Kukla's Korner:
While I was sleeping in after penning last night's post-scrimmage entry, MLive's Brendan Savage penned updates regarding Joakim Andersson, Gustav Nyquist and the exit of Damien Brunner, and the Red Wings' prospects, who will be taking part in morning practice sessions only on Sunday, spent their only "off-day" playing paintball and touring Camp Grayling: Continue reading "Red Wings early overnight report: ‘off-day’ prospect talk, Wings camp video, Weiss and the WingEast"

from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice, The Devils appear to be closing in on signing unrestricted free agent forward Damien Brunner, according to a report out of Switzerland.

Red Wings mid-day news: on Mantha, the Wings’ defense (prospects and current players) and UFA haul

Amongst the Red Wings-related news that popped up this morning: While speaking with Ken Holland regarding the Wings' scouting appointments, MLive's Brendan Savage inquired as to the progress of one Darren Helm, and Holland very politely said the equivalent of, "He's doing okay, but it's only been two days": "Looking at the sixth-month history,...

Impressions from the scrimmage at the Red Wings’ summer development camp a.k.a. overnight report

In front of jam-packed stands and a suite overflowing with Red Wings amateur scouts, the Wings' coach, the Grand Rapids Griffins' coach, and Ken Holland, Kris Draper, Ryan Martin and Jiri Fischer, the Wings' prospects finally got to tangle with each other in a game situation. It wasn't exactly three periods' worth of hockey--two 30-minute periods, with a running...

MLive’s Savage updates statuses of Nyquist, Andersson and soon-to-be-Devil(?) Brunner

I kind of collapsed last night, so I apologize for the lateness of these updates: MLive's Brendan Savage spoke to Red Wings GM Ken Holland about the statuses of restricted free agents Gustav Nyquist and Joakim Andersson, and Holland told Savage that he hasn't begun negotiations with either player yet (as he told me on Thursday, he's not concerned about Brendan Smith...

As noted in the early overnight report, Red Wings GM Ken Holland spoke with both Red Wings TV and the Macomb Daily's Chuck Pleiness about the long, long (emphasis on "long") road ahead of even the process that the vast majority of the prospects taking part in the Wings' summer development camp face, and this morning, MLive's Brendan Savage picks up that conversation...

Red Wings morning report: prospect videos, profiles and observations. And Howard’s ‘numbers’

Today marks the last day of the Red Wings' summer development camp (yesterday's session yielded an uber-long entry), and to change things up a bit, I'm going to start this morning's entry by posting SEVEN videos from the Red Wings' website.

Audio from the scrimmage at the Red Wings’ summer development camp

I apologize for the lateness of this post, but I had some social obligations to take care (stop laughing...I have a life...sort of...), and as such, I ended up spending about 90 minutes hanging out with pals spending the night at Centre Ice Arena to snag training camp tickets (they go MLive's Brendan Savage has already penned a recap of an event which was absolutely dominated...

Getting all the names straight regarding the Red Wings’ amateur scouting personnel shuffle

As the Red Wings haven't issued a formal press release regarding the hiring ot Tyler Wright as the team's director of scouting and Jeff Finley's promotion to head scout, it's been a little difficult to keep track of all the names surrounding the Wings' amateur scouting shuffle. The Columbus Dispatch's Aaron Portzline confirmed that Wright and a trusted right...

Impressions from Day 4 of the Red Wings’ development camp

This is my third summer covering the Red Wings' development camp in Traverse City, and the location I stay at is almost directly under the flight path for the Coast Guard Air Station. It's a little after 5 PM EDT as I'm starting to write this, and a few straggler helicopters (probably choppers tasked with paroling the U.P.) are coming in late for "shift change."...

Damien Brunner May Be in New Jersey Devils’ Plans After Ilya Kovalchuk’s Sudden Retirement

Ilya Kovalchuk stunned the New Jersey Devils and the NHL on Thursday, abruptly announcing his retirement from the league so he could continue his career in the KHL. Not only will Kovalchuk’s decision cost the Devils an annual cap penalty for the next decade and their first-round pick in 2014′s draft, but it leaves them without their best offensive weapon.
