The Detroit Red Wings are proud to select Adam Erne
Erne was one of a handful of players that was just a cut above the rest at Select 17s camp. He has very good offensive abilities and finesse to his game, but also likes to pound opponents with open-ice hits or along the boards. He has a very powerful skating stride so he can create tons of offensive opportunities. He also has a very powerful shot and can simply blow shots by goaltenders. He plays with grit, power, soft hands with vision and pure sniping ability. In one game just blew by the defense wide and purely rocketed a shot low to the far side of the wing. He then scored a second goal of the game by taking a pass in the slot and quickly releasing a deadly, accurate shot. High on NHL teams draft radar.
