Red Wings’ Tyler Bertuzzi placed in COVID protocol
DETROIT -- Detroit Red Wings forward Tyler Bertuzzi, the only player in the NHL not vaccinated for COVID-19, was placed in COVID protocol before Wednesday’s game against the Seattle Kraken, the club announced. Because of his unvaccinated status, Bertuzzi has been required to be tested daily, while vaccinated players and team personnel are tested every three days. Bertuzzi will be tested Thursday to verify the results. Dylan Larkin tested positive earlier this season prior to a game in Dallas and was required to sit out the third period when the results came back. Detroit defenseman Danny DeKeyser has been in COVID protocol for a week and has missed three games.mlive.com

NHL Commissioner meets with Kyle Beach, offers league's help

Kraken revise Grubauer's deal after CBA violation
The expansion Seattle Kraken have revised their contract with goaltender Philipp Grubauer after the initial deal was rejected by the NHL for violating the collective bargaining agreement, according to a person with knowledge of the move. Grubauer will still count $5.9 million against the salary cap throughout the $35.4 million, six-year deal. The NHL has a cap recapture formula to retroactively punish teams for those contracts, which could come into play for Nashville if Montreal defenseman Shea Weber — who’s expected to miss all next season with injury and may never play again, according to Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin — retires early.news.yahoo.com
Red Wings sign defenseman Gustav Lindstrom for two years
The Detroit Red Wings thought highly enough of young defenseman Gustav Lindstrom that they protected him for the expansion draft ahead of veteran Troy Stecher and former first-round pick Dennis Cholowski, who the Seattle Kraken selected. The Red Wings on Monday signed Lindstrom to a two-year contract. Lindstrom, 22, a puck-moving, stay-at-home defender, appeared in 13 games near the end of the season (no goals, three assists). He has played 29 NHL games over the past two seasons (no goals, four assists) and 58 games for the AHL Grand Rapids Griffins (no goals, eight assists). Lindstrom was Detroit’s second pick in 2017 (38th overall).mlive.com
2021 NHL Draft: Michigan hockey produces top 2 picks, Matty Beniers selected by Seattle Kraken
Michigan’s hockey program has produced the top two picks in the 2021 NHL Draft. 1 overall on Friday night, the Seattle Kraken, an expansion team that will make its debut this season, drafted forward Matty Beniers with the second pick. The last time a college or junior team represented the top two picks in an NHL draft was the 1969 Montreal Junior Canadiens. “Matty Beniers is probably the best all-around center in this draft,” Chris Peters, editor of Hockey Sense on Substack and former NHL draft and prospects analyst for ESPN told MLive last week.

Dennis Cholowski among Red Wings exposed for expansion draft
The Detroit Red Wings selected Dennis Cholowski 20th overall in 2016 because of his mobility and offensive ability. Cholowski is among the players the Red Wings left unprotected for Wednesday’s Seattle Kraken expansion draft. The Red Wings opted to protect Gustav Lindstrom, who doesn’t have offensive upside as Cholowski but has shown to be more reliable defensively. At forward, the Red Wings protected Tyler Bertuzzi, Adam Erne, Robby Fabbri, Dylan Larkin, Michael Rasmussen, Givani Smith and Jakub Vrana. This leaves, among others, forwards Vladislav Namestnikov, Frans Nielsen and Evgeny Svechnikov and defensemen Cholowski, Danny DeKeyser and Troy Stecher unprotected.mlive.com
Follow updates: NHL teams announce Seattle expansion draft protection lists
Saturday evening was the deadline for NHL teams to submit their <a href="https://www.clickondetroit.com/topic/Seattle_Kraken/">Seattle Kraken</a> expansion draft protection lists, and then they are to announce them publicly on Sunday.
Red Wings mailbag: Expansion draft protection list seems straightforward
NHL teams have about a month to finalize their protection lists for the July 21 Seattle Kraken expansion draft. Up front, if the Red Wings leave Givani Smith unprotected, Seattle likely would take him. Petr Mrazek has had a couple of good seasons since leaving Detroit but it’s doubtful the Red Wings have any regrets about moving him. The Red Wings must be pleased with the picks they received for Tatar (first-, second- and third-rounder) and Athanasiou (two second-rounders). Of course, we don’t know if the Red Wings would have taken him with the 19th pick.mlive.com
Projected No. 1 pick in NHL draft Owen Power leaning towards return to Michigan
Michigan’s hockey team could have the No. Defenseman Owen Power, who is projected to be the top pick in next month’s NHL draft, said he is strongly considering returning to the Wolverines for his sophomore season. “I think right now I’m probably leaning more toward going back to school,” the 18-year-old told “NHL Now” on Friday. “Power is an excellent package of NHL size, skating and attributes which he utilizes effectively in all situations,” NHL Director of Central Scouting Dan Marr said in a release last month.
