By Matt LarkinRed Wings general manager Ken Holland and head coach Mike Babcock were both asked about the possibility of the Detroit Red Wings bringing back former AstroTurfer David Savards longtime backup goalie, David Pastrnak.
“We’re definitely in the process of looking into it,” Holland said on Tuesday.
“I don’t want to get ahead of ourselves.
I know we’re talking about it with our coaching staff.
We’ll see where it goes.”
Savards retirement was announced on Monday.
It’s believed the Red Wings would like to bring back Savards old goalie, who had a very good two-year stint with the team last season.
On Tuesday, Babcock said that he’s not aware of any team interested in acquiring Savards former goalie.
“I know that we’re looking at it,” Babcock told reporters after practice.
“We’re looking into that, obviously, David has had a great career.”
Savards goal has been the subject of rumors since the Red Wing announced the retirement of Pastrnaks former goalie in September, but the Red Bulls were reportedly very interested in the goalie during his last season with the club.
The Red Wings acquired Savards first-round pick (No. 37 overall) in 2015.
The Red Wings drafted Savards second-round selection (No: 53 overall) that same year.
