With the rosters settled in after the NHL trade deadline, it’s time for another weekly update on the Red Wings prospect system. The top scoring AHL and CHL prospects didn’t find the back of the net last week, but plenty of others did, including an offensive defensemen that we’ve been waiting for a breakout from for a while.

This article was supposed to be completed yesterday, and as such does not include last night’s games. They will instead be included in next week’s edition.
