Q&A With Local Band Autumn Kings On Their Red Wings Connection

What To Expect From Jonathan Bernier

The future of Detroit’s goaltending may still be a question mark, but for now the present has been set. After parting ways with both goalies who backed up Jimmy Howard in 2017-18, the team had to dip into the free agency market to fill that gap. They did and they locked up veteran goaltender Jonathan…
