DETROIT – Detroit general manager Ken Holland addressed the possibility of the Red Wings resuming an affiliation agreement with an ECHL team based in Toledo after the organization’s long-time association with the Storm ended this season.
“It’s certainly something we would be open-minded to,” Holland said. “It was a good affiliation. Obviously it’s an hour down the road.
“For us when we had [the affiliation with the Storm], it was so convenient because there was almost like a triangle between Detroit, [AHL-affiliate] Grand Rapids and Toledo and player movement was so easy between those three cities.”
