2022 Development Camp Jersey Number Notes

The Red Wings opened up their first development camp since 2022 today and announced the rosters for it via Twitter.

Unlike previous years, the team did not announce sweater numbers, and since I’m a numbers geek I couldn’t allow that to stand. I went through Dave Guralnick’s excellent photo gallery to match names and numbers and started filling in gaps from anywhere else I could find… And then the ever-thorough George Malik posted his Day One impressions and included player jersey numbers to fill in the gaps.

There are a handful of returning players who have kept their jersey numbers.  Goalie Sebastian Cossa keeps the #33 he wore last fall in camp.  Defensemen Oscar Plandowski and Donovan Sebrango keep #77 and #44, respectively.  Up front, Pasquale Zito keeps #56 and Cross Hanas holds on to #74.

Returning goalie Carter Gylander has graduated from the #60 he wore in 2019 to #35, which he’ll probably immediately lose to new Red Wings goalie Ville HussoRobert Mastrosimone, making his return to development camp, takes the #54 that was last assigned to Bobby Ryan with the #14 he wore in 2019 now taken by Robby Fabbri.

Some of the other assignments show players who aren’t expected to return to Detroit.  Chase Bradley takes over Carter Rowney’s #37, Kienan Draper gets Dan Renouf‘s #21, Owen Flores takes over Kaden Fulcher‘s #36, and Andrew Oke is wearing Calvin Pickard‘s #31 (though, with regards to the latter two, try-out goalie numbers are even more meaningless in development camp).

One interesting assignment is Simon Edvinsson getting the #3 that had been assigned to Jared MacIssac.  MacIssac still has one year left on his deal with Detroit so presumably one of those two will be wearing a different number come the main camp in the fall.

The eighth-overall pick from last week’s NHL Entry Draft, Marco Kasper, is wearing the #92 that previously belonged to Vladislav Namestnikov.

Also worth noting is Carter Mazur having been assigned the #43 that previously belonged to his idol, Darren Helm.

Red Wings Rout Coyotes for 5-1 Win

The Detroit Red Wings earned a point in their ninth consecutive game Thursday night with a 5-1 victory over the visiting Arizona Coyotes.

Detroit netminder Jimmy Howard stopped 26 of the 27 shots he faced to earn the win – his fourth in a row – and five different players scored for the Red Wings.

The game could have been very different, as the Coyotes thought they had opened the scoring just 1:22 in. Klas Dahlbeck scored on a play that Detroit head coach Jeff Blashill challenged. Video review revealed that Connor Murphy was offside and the goal was wiped out.

Instead, it was Justin Abdelkader‘s goal with 7:30 left in the opening frame that got things started. Detroit rookie Dylan Larkin forced a turnover behind the Arizona net and chased it up the side boards, then worked the puck to Abdelkader in front of the net for a backhander past goalie Mike Smith.

Niklas Kronwall made it 2-0 with 42 seconds left in the period on a blast from the slot off a feed from Tomas Tatar. Just 18 seconds later, Gustav Nyquist bounced a shot from the neutral zone past Smith to give the Red Wings a 3-0 lead.

The period would end with Kyle Chipchura laying a hard hit on Brendan Smith. Smith replied with a slash to Chipchura, then the two fought.

Arizona got on the board at 5:52 of the middle frame. Jordan Martinook snapped a shot from the inside edge of the right faceoff circle through traffic and past Howard off a feed from behind the net by Steve Downie.

Danny DeKeyser replied for the Red Wings just 1:26 later with a blast from the blue line past Anders Lindback, who replaced Smith in the Coyotes’ net to start the second period.

Darren Helm would round out the game’s scoring with his first of the season. Lindback lost the puck behind the net and it came out to Helm, who put it in before Lindback could get into position.

Lindback finished the night with 26 saves on 28 shots while Smith stopped 13 of 16 chances he faced.

The Red Wings lost both Teemu Pulkkinen and Drew Miller to injury in the first period. Pulkkinen was boarded by Martin Hanzal and Miller took a shoulder to the head from Dahlbeck.
