Tuomisto's stock has dropped since he was drafted but will add a right-handed shot to the Red Wings, something they are lacking; he will also add size being six foot five inches tall and 205 pounds. It will be interesting to see where Tuomisto starts the 2023-24 season, but this could be a solid piece for the Red Wings.
