Head coach Jeff Blashill has announced that he intends on starting next week’s regular season opener by dressing eight defensemen.


This comes in light of recent news that long-serving veteran blue-liner Niklas Kronwall will not feature in Tampa Bay next Thursday, as his knee injury continues to bother him.


The exact names have not been fully revealed as of yet, although it’s safe to assume that this strategy will help solve some of the issues on the back end as many young players will look to earn their shot at playing full-time with the Red Wings.
