Red Wings Pick Danielson and Sandin Pelikka in Draft, Add Yamamoto and Kostin for Future Considerations
Steve Yzerman and the Red Wings used both first round picks to help with the ongoing Red Wings rebuild.
Red Wings Draft:
Detroit drafted center Nate Danielson ninth overall and defenseman Axel Sandin Pelikka 17th overall in the 2023 NHL Draft last night (June 28). Moreover, today (June 29), the Detroit Red Wings picked up forwards Kailer Yamamoto and Klim Kostin in a trade with Edmonton for future considerations. That event clears salary cap space for the Oilers.
