Cholowski will be selected by the Kraken in Wednesday night's Expansion Draft, Mark Spector of Sportsnet.ca reports. Cholowski appeared in just 16 games with the Red Wings in 2020-21, picking up three points while averaging 15:54 of ice time per contest. Cholowski was selected 20th overall in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, so he still has a ton of potential, especially at just 23 years old. He'll likely be given the opportunity to win a bottom-pairing role with the Kraken next season.
Cholowski had two assists and two shots with one block in a 5-4 overtime loss to Columbus on Saturday. Cholowski picked up his first two helpers all season long, figuring in on even-strength tallies by Jakub Vrana and Valtteri Filppula. The 23-year-old Cholowski has three points in 16 games for the year, registering just 10 shots on goal.
Cholowski scored a goal on two shots in Saturday's 2-1 overtime loss to Dallas. Cholowski broke a scoreless tie with 3:43 left in the first period, picking the glove-side corner from the top of the left faceoff circle. That was the extent of Detroit's offense, which generated just 17 shots on goal against Dallas netminder Anton Khudobin. The 23-year-old Cholowski has one goal and six shots in 10 games this season.
Cholowski was recalled to the active roster Saturday. Cholowski has been a healthy scratch for the last five games and will likely watch from the press box again Saturday. He owns a minus-1 rating in two NHL games this season.
Cholowski was recalled from AHL Grand Rapids to the taxi squad Thursday. Cholowski was sent down to the minors for a day before being called back up. The 23-year-old hasn't received much playing time at the top level this year, suiting up for just one game. He'll need to be activated from the taxi squad before his next appearance.
