Stephens hasn't scored a goal at the NHL level in two seasons, though he did manage six helpers in 27 games last year.

Red Wings' Mitchell Stephens: Sure bet to make team
Stephens is considered a lock to make the Opening Night roster for the Red Wings, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Stephens is tabbed as the permanent replacement for fourth-line grinder Luke Glendening, whom the Wings surprisingly let walk as an unrestricted free agent. It cost the Original Six club a 2022 sixth-round draft pick to acquire Stephens, which isn't a big price to pay for a 24-year-old who was actually a second-round pick with the Lightning back in 2015, when GM Steve Yzerman had been making roster moves for the Bolts....
