Justin Abdelkader has played with Stephen Weiss and Gustav Nyquist during Detroit's first few days of training camp.
The Red Wings have used Abdelkader up and down the lineup and coach Mike Babcock likes what he brings to each combination. "I like that he's an everyday guy," Babcock said. "He works hard. He's competitive. He plays with good players, he plays on a checking line, he penalty kills, he plays net-front on the power play. We trust him. He's a good man. He treats people right. I've got a ton of confidence in him." Unfortunately, his versatility hasn't translated into very good fantasy statistics. He tallied 10 goals, 28 points, 31 penalty minutes and 172 hits in 70 games last season. Sep 22 - 12:32 PM
