Observations

October 2019 – As expected, Hirose has made the Red Wings and slotted into a top-six role to start the season. The playmaking winger has also been featured on the top powerplay unit and could provide some sneaky good value in his rookie campaign. Mark Hillier

March 2019 – Leading the entire NCAA in scoring this year (50 points in 36 games) earned Hirose not only a two-year contract but also a professional debut with the Red Wings, as the team plans on having him in the lineup almost immediately. Hirose has played the last three seasons at Michigan State University where he totaled 116 point in 106 games. Hirose, who includes Pavel Datsyuk as one of his favorite players growing up, is a skilled playmaking winger and will get a chance right away start on a scoring line for the Wings. Mark Hillier
