What they're saying: Red Wings upgrade goalie duo with Ville Husso trade

The Detroit News

Detroit Red Wings GM Steve Yzerman was busy before Day 2 of the NHL draft on Friday, acquiring St. Louis Blues goaltender Ville Husso for a third-round draft choice.

Husso was headed to free agency next week but ESPN's Greg Wyshynski said Yzerman wanted to make sure he upgraded the team's goaltending depth before the 27-year-old native of Finland went on to the market.

"Alex Nedeljkovic and Ville Husso would give the Detroit Red Wings one of the best goalie tandems in the East," Wyshynski said.
