Thomas Vanek, our 127th ranked left wing, is best suited to be a depth backup. We project he will end up back with the Detroit Red Wings because they could use a player of this quality to play left wing. The Red Wings currently have only 0 healthy left wings, and none are rated better than Vanek.
The Red Wings currently have no left wings under contract beyond the 2023 season, so Vanek could see a potential long term contract with the team.
