To say that Evan Fiala was excited to be invited to the Detroit Red Wings' training camp is an understatement.
"I gave 'er the old hands to the mouth, that's for sure," explained the 20-year-old Saskatoon Blades' defenceman...doing as he said and covering his wide smile in the process. "I was freaking out a little bit, but yeah, I'm really excited and ready to go."
Fiala will leave for the Wings' main training camp on September 13. The Clavet product got the invite after impressing the Detroit brass during their development camp in early July.
