​With another season of Detroit Red Wings hockey right around the corner, general manager Steve Yzerman and company continue to put the finishing touches on the roster that will be hitting the ice on October 14 against the Tampa Bay Lightning for the home opening game at Little Caesars Arena.

And if head coach Jeff Blashill’s comments are any indication, Red Wings fans are in for an exciting ride.

Detroit’s bench boss, who is entering his 7th season as head coach, explained to media members today that highly touted Swedish forward Lucas Raymond has a chance to make the final 23-man roster. Additionally, he stated that veteran forward Bobby Ryan, who is attempting to win a second year in the Motor City on a professional tryout, also could be included.
