Jakub Vrana appears set to play against Capitals for first time since being traded to Detroit Red Wings
Jakub Vrana was traded by the Washington Capitals to the Detroit Red Wings on April 12 of 2021. He has played parts of three seasons with the Red Wings and has yet to face his former squad a single time due to a variety of reasons including scheduling, injuries, and a stint in the NHL’s player assistance program.
That all seems like it will change on Tuesday when Detroit comes to DC to play the Caps. Helene St. James reports that Wings coach Derek Lalonde is looking to get Vrana in the lineup for the game.
