Believe it or not I picked my favorite Red Wing after the first game I ever watched. No, it’s not Zetterberg, Larkin, or Mantha. It’s someone who is an all out grinder all over the ice. He loves to fight and make lightning players bleed. Justin Abdelkader is the presence in front of the net that any team would love to have. When hes on the ice he moves bodies out of the way and hits with authority. This past Christmas I opened up an Abdelkader jersey and went ecstatic. Many Wings fans don’t like Justin because of his long contract, but he brings all his energy to the ice. He may not get the goals or the points, but hell give his team all he has and that what assistant captains have to do. He’s the toughest NHL player that i have ever seen play hockey. Abdelkader’s numbers are already better than last year, but they don’t look like they will reach his performance in 2014 and 2015. I hope he can finish the year with 15+ goals and 45 points. It would be appreciated if you guys let me know down below who your favorite players are!
