Okay, so that trade is working out for everyone. Just like Anthony Mantha, forward Jakub Vrana has scored in his first game with the Detroit Red Wings.
Exiting the penalty box after serving time for a hockey crime he did not commit (too many men on the ice), Vrana was set loose on a breakaway by Gustav Lindstrom.
Great release here.
“What a way to join the Red Wings!”
And hey, here’s a tweet that I didn’t see coming one week ago:

Thursday is Vrana’s first game since he, Richard Panik, and picks were traded from Washington to Detroit in exchange for Anthony Mantha. Mantha has scored two goals in two games since joining the Capitals.
Vrana’s success is owed, no doubt, to the good luck wished upon him by Alan.

Good to see Jake happy again.
