  • Red Wings' Taro Hirose: Favorite to break camp

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/30/19) Hirose is likely to make the Opening Night roster for the 2019-20 campaign, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    This prediction comes from St. James in one of her mailbag reports, where she routinely fields questions from Detroit fans. She opines that Hirose has a leg up on the competition, with the winger having dropped jaws as a free-agent signee from Michigan State University, adding a goal and six assists -- including a power-play helper -- through his first 10 NHL contests. In general, NHL scouts and GMs are paying more attention to smaller, faster players these days, and Hirose fits the bill as a shifty trailblazer listed at 5-foot-10 and 160 pounds.

    Red Wings' Taro Hirose: Amazing first impression

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/10/19) Hirose ended up finishing his debut campaign in the NHL with a goal and six assists through 10 contests.

    The prospect from Michigan State University hit the scoresheet in seven of those 10 contests, and Hirose averaged just a minute of ice time on the power play to boot. His rate of production is probably not sustainable, at least at the top level, but he's surfaced at a good time with the Red Wings -- a franchise that has historically relied on a band of veteran stalwarts -- being in the midst of an unfamiliar rebuild. Hirose will be a restricted free agent when his entry-level contract expires in the summer of 2020.

    Red Wings' Taro Hirose: Deposits first NHL goal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/31/19) Hirose scored a goal on four shots in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Bruins.

    Hirose has burst onto the scene with a goal and five helpers in his first seven NHL games. He added two blocked shots Sunday. College free agents can be a difficult group to pin down for production expectations, but the Red Wings have to be happy with the early returns for this Michigan State product.

    Red Wings' Taro Hirose: Continues point streak with helper

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/26/19) Hirose posted an assist for the fourth straight game in Monday's 3-2 win over the Sharks.

    Hirose has exactly one assist in each of his four NHL games since signing out of Michigan State on March 12. The Calgary native is in a position to succeed, skating on the second line with Andreas Athanasiou and Luke Glendening, both of whom are in the midst of their own breakout seasons.

    Red Wings' Taro Hirose: Turning heads in NHL

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/24/19) Hirose has assists in three straight games to start his NHL career.

    The 22-year-old prospect, who jumped to the NHL directly from Michigan State University, is off to a great start. Detroit has returned the favor by icing him on the power play, though all of his points have been of the 5-on-5 variety thus far. Consider deploying Hirose as a deep sleeper down the stretch; not much attention is on this Wings team that won't be making the playoffs.
