Latest Updates on Detroit Red Wings' Top Prospects

Detroit's prospects haven't seen much of the NHL, but some could soon.

Through 16 games this season, the Detroit Red Wings have seen a few of their younger prospects skate under the bright lights of the NHL.

The Red Wings have slowly gotten healthier with the return of Darren Helm and Patrick Eaves from injury, but with the glut of forwards still looming over their NHL roster, it continues to leave little room for their younger players.

Riley Sheahan, Cory Emmerton and Luke Glendening are some of the forwards who have seen the ice already. With injuries to Jonathan Ericsson and Brendan Smith, Xavier Ouellet and Adam Almquist have had opportunities on the blue line. Even Petr Mrazek made his first start of the season after Jonas Gustavsson was placed on injured reserve.

The Wings have so much talent in their system that there isn’t room for everyone at the NHL level. Some of Detroit’s top prospects are buried in the minor leagues or junior hockey and therefore are easily forgotten. In order to make sure that doesn't happen, here are updates for some of Detroit’s top prospects.
