Big Picture: Detroit Red Wings adding depth with Matt Luff’s call-up  

The 25-year-old has faced significant challenges this season, having spent three months recovering from a severe injury during a crucial period where he had hoped to assist either the Wings or their AHL affiliate in Grand Rapids to secure victories and bolster his chances of a contract extension.

Expressing his thoughts on the matter, Luff stated last Tuesday that playing for an NHL team presents a thrilling and advantageous prospect, particularly in the early stages of the season where one can showcase their abilities. He aims to reclaim his playing form and demonstrate his capabilities for contract consideration, highlighting his potential to perform well in either the NHL or Grand Rapids, and ultimately secure a long-term position with the team.
