Joakim Andersson has been playing on the wing, with Luke Glendening at center, on Detroit's fourth line.
Drew Miller rounds out the unit and coach Mike Babcock has been impressed with the combination. "They do what they do. They check like crazy, they're gritty," Babcock said. "Glennie's a pain in the butt. Andy can make plays and is a good passer and he's smart, and Millsie's real smart and works hard. They brought their game." The trio has been used in checking situations early into the 2014-15 campaign. Oct 14 - 8:08 AM

Joakim Andersson is hoping to regain a position on Detroit's fourth line after losing it last season to Luke Glendening.

Actually, there is room for both Andersson and Glendening on the Wings' fourth unit this season provided both play up to their potential. However, more competition is expected to come from Daniel Cleary and Tomas Jurco. Much of Andersson's problems last season could be attributed to an ankle injury. The Swede is now healthy and will have to prove to the Wings' coaching staff he is ready to contribue on a consistent basis. Bear in mind this is a fourth line position we are talking about. Who wins this job will not turn the fortunes of any hockey pool participants.

Joakim Andersson appears to be Detroit's 13th or 14th forward heading into training camp.

Luke Glendening took over Andersson's spot as the Red Wings' fourth-line center late in the year. He will have to earn his roster spot going into the season, but Detroit's plethora of centers could result in him being moved at some point.
