Observations

March 2019 – The Red Wings signed left-shooting winger Ryan Kuffner to a two-year entry level contract right out of college and immediately gave him a taste of NHL action, playing just over seven minutes in his first professional game. The Canadian scored 22 goals and added 22 assists for 44 points in just 31 games playing for the Princeton Tigers this season. He scored a total of 75 goals in 132 games over his four seasons in college which is a Princeton record. One of the more sought after college prospects, Kuffner has good size, is smart and quick with a nose for the net and finds the open spots to receive passes. Kuffner sees himself as a very competitive player, and he will need that going forward as he tries to earn himself a permanent spot on the Red Wings roster.  Mark Hillier
