Red Wings evening quickies: sunshine, lollipops and rainbows

I finally crashed after a week-and-a-half's worth of prospect fun and then Cleary-re-signing-delight, and Paul did a fantastic job of filling us in regarding the Wings' assistant coaching search, a certain Anthony Mantha's confidence (he's not quite as borderline arrogant as Andreas Athanasiou is [and Andreas has backed it up, too], but Mantha knows he's good...

Mantha is ready to play for the Red Wings now...

Anthony Mantha likes look of youth movement in Detroit

The Detroit Red Wings' two most recent first-round draft picks didn't waste any time getting acclimated at the team's 2014 Development Camp. Anthony Mantha (20th overall in 2013) and Dylan Larkin (15th overall in 2014) skated on a line during the first day of camp at Centre ICE Arena in Traverse City, Mich. Friday. "He's a great player," Mantha said of Larkin...

104th Overall Pick: Rangers Select Defenseman Ryan Mantha

The Rangers drafted their first defenseman of the draft with their 104th overall pick, and it’s Ryan Mantha out of the USHL. Unrelated to Detroit Red Wings’ prospect Anthony Mantha, I’ve never seen him play, so I can’t comment on his game. Here’s what I can tell you, though. He’s absolutely massive; 6’5 and 225 pounds. Those guys typically take longer to develop, but...

Will Anthony Mantha Make the Detroit Red Wings Roster?

Anthony Mantha is the most talked about Red Wings prospect in over 10 years. He had a breakout year scoring 81 goals in as many games in the QMJHL and is going to turn pro next year. The only question for the fans: Will he be in the AHL or the NHL. There seems to be three schools of thought on this topic. The first one is that Mantha will play the entire year with the Red Wings....

Red Wings playoff prospect news: Mantha’s Foreurs take 2-OT decision at Memorial Cup

Anthony Mantha had only an assist as his Val-d'Or Foreurs defeated the Edmonton Oil Kings 4-3 in a double-overtime decision at the Memorial Cup, but his linemate, Anthony Richard, scored the game-winner, and the fact that Mantha's getting the snot checked out of him by new opponents is essential for his growth as a player (he has 1 goal, 2 assists and is a -1 in 3 games)...

Anthony Mantha Likely Not a Red Wings Forward Next Year

Say it with me Detroit Red Wings fans, “Anthony Mantha will not be a Red Wing next year.” People may scoff at this statement, but simple math shows there is almost zero chance he will be on the wing next year for Detroit. People across Red Wings Nation and hockey in general have fallen head over heals for Mantha, a first round pick last year, who is averaging a goal-per-game...
