The Detroit Red Wings have had an eventful season filled with highs and lows, hinting at a potential playoff appearance for the first time since 2016. With the trade deadline looming, a recent move by the team suggests they may be gearing up for something significant.

Today, the team announced the termination of the contract of 27-year-old forward Nolan Stevens. Stevens has spent his entire career in the AHL and was unlikely to make a big impact with the Red Wings. Nonetheless, freeing up his contract slot gives the team more flexibility as they approach the trade deadline, where NHL teams cannot exceed 50 contracted players at once.
