Andreas Athanasiou wants to be "as dominant as possible" in 2017-18.
"You learn so much playing in this league," Athanasiou said. "I just try to do the best I can and play within my game and not try to do too much. Coming into next season, I'm going to keep a mind-set of wanting to get better. Speed is part of my game. When I get those opportunities, I know I can either get a good scoring chance or change the momentum. It definitely can swing momentum." He finished second on the team with 18 goals this past season and will likely be a key offensive player for the Red Wings next year. Apr 19 - 10:09 AM
