The Red Wings hope to see Danielson in the top-6 sometime in the future
Danielson is a 6-2 center from the Brandon Wheat Kings of the WHL. He originally hails from Red Deer, Alberta, and has been described as a “creator of rush offense, building speed beneath the puck, charging through the neutral zone with possession, carving the ice up with powerful, agile crossovers, and turning the corner on opposing defencemen” by Elite Prospects.
He's been signed to his first Entry-Level Contract
The Red Wings announced Danielson has been signed to a three-year entry-level contract, and posted a photo of the smiling prospect sealing the deal:
- The Red Wings took Nate Danielson with the 9th overall pick
- The 6'2 center had played for the WHL's Brandon Wheat Kings
- He's been signed to an Entry Level contract this morning
They say that hindsight is always 20-20, and Yzerman certainly has his reasons for making the selection that he did.
Since Yzerman has forgotten more about hockey than most of us will ever even know about the sport and its inner workings, we're hoping that this is just the latest piece in what will be a successful and ultimately championship-worthy rebuild.
