For 13 seasons, Justin Abdelkader won over the hearts of Detroit Red Wings‘ fans but all good things must come to an end as Steve Yzerman decided to buy him out in October.
Now, according to a report from David Pagnotta, Abdelkader could be in line for a new gig as he has “drawn interest from a number of teams.”
Justin Abdelkader, whom Detroit bought out in Oct, has also drawn interest from a number of teams. As of this morning, it didn't sound like a deal was imminent. I'd suspect talks could pick up this week as camps open.

Abdelkader, who is now 33, did not score a single goal for the Red Wings in 49 games played during the 2019-20 season.
