Tootoo
"They know what kind of player I am. I'm not going to change a thing. I'm playing for my livelihood and for the guys in the dressing room. They know that I bring it every night.”
- Jordin Tootoo

"(Tootoo) has been excellent for us…he knows how to play…he’s a competitive guy. He seems to be enjoying himself and we’re enjoying having him.”
- Mike Babcock

"I go out there and play as hard as I can night in and night out, and I think that's what the fans like to see. It's part of my DNA.”
- Jordin Tootoo

“Everybody's got to battle for a spot. Sometimes the chance comes early, sometimes you’ve got to wait a little bit and work hard to get the chance. I think it was worth it for me. I didn't get it last year but this year I'm getting lots of chances, try to prove I belong here.”
– Tomas Tatar

"(Tatar) just generates offense. He’s on the puck…. he makes those little plays and he’s quicker than I thought he was. He’s been good.”
- Mike Babcock


Johan Franzen said he’s been skating pretty good the past two days, and he hopes to play on Thursday.

Brendan Smith also had a positive update for Wings fans.


"I feel great. I’m not ready yet, (but) it gets better every day. It's hard to speculate (on my return) because I haven't done much contact. That's the biggest issue with anything.”
- Brendan Smith

Kindl

Jakub Kindl will be in the lineup tonight.
