Christoffer Ehn is as raw a project as any of the Detroit Red Wings’ 2014 draft selections, and Hakan Andersson admits he has a “soft spot” for the big Swedish center.

Andersson, the Red Wings’ director of European scouting, has seen a lot of the 6-foot-3, 181-pounder with Frolunda at Sweden’s J-20 SuperElit level, and made sure his club selected Ehn in the fourth round, 106th overall.

“I like his size, his potential, his work ethic — a lot — and I like his hockey sense,” Andersson said.

The Detroit Red Wings have never been shy about picking a player who was passed over in a previous draft — Pavel Datsyuk being the most famous example — and Finnish center Julius Vahatalo is the latest to join the list.
Alexander Kadeykin
Published on Saturday, June 28, 2014, 7:48 pm, under 2014 Draft Coverage
The Detroit Red Wings don’t usually draft a player from Russia without some confidence he wants to come to North America — and Alexander Kadeykin is no exception.
Dylan Larkin

Scouts are loathe to compare prospects to current NHLers. But asked if Dylan Larken is like Darren Helm with more offensive upside, Jeff Finley didn’t hesitate.
Axel Holmstrom

Time will tell whether Axel Holmstrom proves to be another late-round steal for Hakan Andersson, but at least two rival scouts were green with envy over the selection.
Chase Perry

Only Chase Perry’s selection in the fifth round prevented the 2014 NHL draft from being an all-forward affair for the Detroit Red Wings.

The Detroit Red Wings have their highest draft pick since they selected Martin Lapointe 10th overall 23 years ago in 1991.
Tomas Nosek
Published on Saturday, June 14, 2014, 6:17 pm, under Miscellaneous
The Detroit Red Wings don’t have a second-round pick in the NHL draft later this month because of the David Legwand trade, but the signing of Tomas Nosek should help lessen some of that sting.
Anthony Mantha

If Anthony Mantha has not yet won over the scouts who doubted him on draft day, he probably never will.

An influx of young forwards propelled the Detroit Red Wings to their 23rd straight playoff appearance this season. The next influx of youth is expected to come on the blue line — and it might be on the way sooner than later.

Andrej Nestrasil has very quietly emerged as one of the Grand Rapids Griffins' top performers.
Tyler Bertuzzi
Published on Wednesday, April 23, 2014, 11:16 am, under 2013-14 RWC Reports
Most Canadian Hockey League followers predicted the Guelph Storm would still be in the hunt for the Memorial Cup in late April — but not many thought Tyler Bertuzzi would be playing a key role for them.
