It appears Olli Juolevi will make his Detroit Red Wings debut Thursday night.
The defenceman, claimed off waivers by the team Sunday, was skating at Red Wings practice Wednesday.
According to MLive.com’s Ansar Khan, Juolevi was skating alongside another ex-Vancouver Canucks rearguard in Troy Stetcher.
Juolevi has appeared in 10 NHL games with the Florida Panthers this season, recording zero points. He scored two goals and an assist in 23 games with the Vancouver Canucks in 2020–21.
The Red Wings take on the visiting Minnesota Wild Thursday night.
