The Red Wings held their first day of training camp in Traverse City, Michigan yesterday.
While most of the attention was centered around the return of Daniel Cleary, it's worth noting that an intrasquad scrimmage was held between Team Howe and Team Delvecchio (rosters can be found here). Team Delvecchio went on to win the scrimmage 4-0.
Henrik Zetterberg scored a goal and three assists, Pavel Datsyuk had a goal and two assists, and Justin Abdelkader had two goals. Jonas Gustavsson and Tom McCollum combined to stop 28 shots (both played 30 minutes).
Here are some thoughts on the teams from George Malik of Kukla's Korner.
“I’m sorry to everybody for the drama that was created. It’s just not my style. Social media at times can be frustrating, but that’s the world we live in and I apologize to all of the writers, the Philly writers, but I’m a Red Wing and I’m proud to be a Red Wing.”
"With Danny coming back…he's number 11 in Detroit. I'll pick another number."
-Alfredsson, who will give up number 11 (the number he wore in Ottawa). He will wear 24 this season.
"I'm thrilled about (Cleary), he makes our team better…we've got good depth and it's gonna be competitive."
“Obviously, it’s a big plus for our team and for our organization. As much as Z and Pav and Mule and Kronner are the face of the organization, he’s always been a huge part in the locker room. If he was gone it would have been a huge role to fill.”
