NHL Rumors: Tomas Tatar Could Reunite With Team Who Drafted Him

Speculation is swirling around the possibility of the Detroit Red Wings bringing back forward Tomas Tatar, a player they drafted in the second round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

Various sources suggest that while a reunion with Tatar is on the table, General Manager Steve Yzerman may prioritize acquiring a versatile player capable of handling both center and wing positions.

The team also seems content with its current group of wingers at the moment, however, that could change.

The 32-year-old spent the first seven seasons of his career with the Red Wings, scoring 115 goals and 222 total points across 407 games played in that stretch.

Since leaving Detroit, Tatar has amassed 96 goals and 232 total points over 356 games, spent with the Montreal Canadiens, New Jersey Devils, and Vegas Golden Knights.

Last season, Tatar was productive, scoring 20 goals and 48 points with an incredible +41 plus/minus rating over 82 games with the Devils. Photo Credit: Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports
