A big part of the future of the Detroit Red Wings took out a piece of the team’s past, and now he may be facing supplementary disciplinary action because of it.
In Swedish Hockey League action on Saturday, Rogle center Marco Kasper, Detroit’s top pick in the 2022 NHL entry draft, was assessed a match penalty for charging during their 4-1 loss to Orebo. The victim of his assault was Orebo forward Mathias Brome. Brome played 26 games for the Red Wings in 2020-21, collecting a goal and an assist.

To make matters worse, Orebo scored to up their advantage to 4-0 during the five-minute power play afforded them by Kasper’s match foul.
