    Detroit Red Wings select C Marco Kasper

    The Detroit Red Wings have had tremendous luck in recent drafts, having taken the likes of 2022 Calder Trophy winner Moritz Seider in 2019 and Swedish forward Lucas Raymond in 2020. Of course, they're hoping to have similar luck on the blue line with 2021 Simon Edvinsson, who has a serious shot to make next year's squad.

    A native of Austria, Marco Kasper most recently competed in the Swedish Hockey League with Rögle BK. He was the No. 12 ranked prospect according to Elite Prospects, who had this to say about him:

    “He’s physical and capable along the boards, even in terms of manipulation; he recognizes the angle of defenders coming at him and knows how to beat them and escape them. He passes to the right areas, knows the next logical play in the offensive progression. He goes to the net, hard and often, and with purpose: to screen, rebound, and score. He has good first touches: takes them inside when possible and leads to next play.”
