Saturday skate update

Davis Drewiske will skate as the fourth-line left winger — as he did once or twice last season — tonight against Detroit. Terry Murray said he didn’t want to take Peter Harrold out of the lineup, liked the versatility of having a seventh defenseman and didn’t see the need for a “heavyweight” against Detroit, so Drewiske will replace Kevin Westgarth in the lineup. Brad Richardson will center the line and John Zeiler will play right wing.

The other lines and pairs are expected to be the same as in the previous game. More notes and quotes from the skate to come…
