Steve Yzerman explains why he traded up to land D Shai Buium

Day 2 of the 2021 NHL Draft got started on Saturday just before noon and it did not take long for Detroit Red Wings GM Steve Yzerman to make a move as he traded the No. 38 overall pick and the No. 128 pick to the Vegas Golden Knights in exchange for the No. 36 pick.

With that No. 36 pick, Yzerman selected D Shai Buium.

Following the draft, Yzerman explained why he felt the need to move up two spots to get Buium.
