Red Wings general manager Ken Holland couldn’t trade Derek Meech this offseason. After a day on waivers, he couldn’t give him away either.
Nobody took the opportunity to snatch Meech off the waiver wire, meaning the press box mainstay will report to training camp in Traverse City. Holland is still holding out some hope for the young defenseman’s future though:
He’ll probably be sent to the minors once the season gets underway, but for now he’s headed to Traverse City with the team. There could be “injuries to our team and other teams,” general manager Ken Holland said. “Lots happens in a month.”
