The question is, which team will have the No. 1 overall pick?

One team in the running is the Detroit Red Wings, who have the fourth-best chance (9.5 percent) of getting the No. 1 pick.

Hughes will enter the 2019 NHL Draft as the top prospect available and it seems like a foregone conclusion that he will be selected first overall.

He was recently asked by WXYZ about potentially playing for the Red Wings and his response was perfect.

“I think the Wings would be sick, obviously. It’s the NHL. Anywhere you go is gonna be really cool, but family lives around here. It’d be really cool,” he said.

According to 97.1 The Ticket’s Jeff Riger, he heard today that Yzerman might bring former Red Wings’ great Sergei Fedorov into the organization.

Ken Holland the architect of Steve Yzerman’s return

Well, who would have thought that?

According to a report from Sportsnet, it was none other than Ken Holland who was the leading force behind Steve Yzerman’s return to the Red Wings to take over his position, and has been working on it for months.

Of course, it was Ken Holland who declined this move the first time around in 2010. Red Wings ownership allegedly wanted to tap Yzerman as the successor to Holland, who didn’t want to move “upstairs” just quite yet. Yzerman then went to the Tampa Bay Lightning, and for the past nine years, has built them into a powerhouse and yearly contender for the Stanley Cup.

Holland, who has been the team’s GM since 1997, was asked earlier this month on 97.1 The Ticket about remaining with the Red Wings.

“That’s a great question,” Holland said. “I don’t have an answer for you. But I am a proud, proud Red Wing and I love being a Red Wing and I love living in Michigan. We’ve put roots down. I love the fans, I love the people that work for the Red Wings, I love the young players.

“Certainly would be very difficult for me to leave.”
