Talent Analysis

Aubry is a big player with the ideal frame for a power forward. He is a solid two-way presence. Drafted based on a skill set that suggested he would one day dominate on the ice, he has developed into more of a support player during his minor league career.  Crashing the net and blocking shots with equal enthusiasm, he has not proven to be much of a scoring forward, but the rest of the package suggests he can be valuable in a lower line role.


Aubry skated for the AHL's Grand Rapids Griffins in 2015-16. After five seasons in the Detroit organization, he is a veteran leader for the Griffins but has yet appear in an NHL game. His willingness to do all the hard jobs necessary to help his team win suggests some value as a lower line forward but it is equally likely that Aubry plays out his career at the minor pro level.

It has been a gradual change, but most things associated with the Detroit Red Wings work that way. In a salary-cap constrained hockey landscape, Detroit can no longer simply outspend other franchises; Detroit knew this eight seasons ago and began to stockpile talent through the NHL Draft.

Detroit's run through the first round of the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs was surprising to many. Perhaps more surprising is depth of talent they have in their pipeline. The Detroit Red Wings boast some exceptional prospects who have the potential to be future stars in the NHL. The following awards feature the Red Wings prospects who stood out above the rest. The fact that no player won multiple awards is indicative of the depth of Detroit's talent pool.

The beginning of the 2012-13 AHL season was not kind to the Grand Rapids Griffins. On November 2nd they were 2-4-1-1 and languishing, lacking strong defensive play and goaltending. Enter Petr Mrazek, who ripped off six consecutive wins and seemed to right the  ship for the Griffins. As of January 7th, Grand Rapids was 20-10-1-2 and atop the Midwest division.

A paradigm shift occurred for the Detroit Red Wings after the 2004-05 NHL lockout. Gone were the days where Detroit would readily hand out early-round draft picks in exchange for veteran NHL talent. Instead, Detroit decided that they would need to hold on to their draft choices in order to build a prospect pool with skill and size that would help them compete in the new-look NHL.
