Evgeny Svechnikov joins Red Wings taxi squad
DETROIT – Evgeny Svechnikov -- the 19th overall pick in 2015 -- did not make the Red Wings roster after he was hurt and missed much of that short training camp in January. He cleared, of course, but it wasn’t the best situation for a player who we all expected to be an impact for the Red Wings, especially at this point. So here we are -- will this be his last opportunity with the Red Wings organization? Smith, 22, appeared in 8 games with the Red Wings this season -- 1 goal and 3 assists. I hope we see him again this season with the Red Wings.

This year there teams are allowed a taxi squad of up to six additional players to the normal 23-man roster. The Red Wings released a 22-man roster and six more players on the taxi squad. He’ll remain in the Red Wings organization after clearing waivers. I have placed the full Red Wings 2020-21 season schedule here.
