BREAKING: Detroit Red Wings young STAR enters NHL Player Assistance Program

Published October 19, 2022 at 8:22 PM

The Detroit Red Wings are a young up and coming team that has a very bright future ahead of them.

Just a few short years ago in the 2020-21 season the Red Wings made a trade with the Washington Capitals that sent Anthony Mantha to the Capitals in exchange for Jakub Vrana, some picks and Richard Panik.

While the Wings haven't gotten to see what Vrana can do in a full season yet as he has suffered injuries in every season, he has only gotten into 39 games with the Red Wings, but in those games he has scored 22 goals and 32 points.

Vrana missed almost all of last season with an injury, and we figured this season would finally be the season that the young star would break out and show the hockey world what he could do, but after 2 games he was randomly taken out of the lineup for ''personal reasons''.

Rumours started circulating today on what was going on as he was no longer listed on the roster for the Detroit Red Wings on their website, and news just broke that Vrana has entered into the NHL Player Assistance Program.

The National Hockey League Players' Association and National Hockey League announced today that forward Jakub Vrana of the Detroit Red Wings will be unavailable to his Club for an indefinite period while he receives care from the player assistance program of the NHL and NHLPA.

Under the terms of the joint program, Vrana will continue to be paid while receiving treatment. He will return to the Club when cleared for on-ice competition by the program administrators.

Vrana's care will be administered pursuant to the NHL/NHLPA player assistance program.
