A young Detroit Red Wings prospect has just received extremely disappointing news.
According to a breaking news report from TSN insider Bob McKenzie, Team Canada, or more specifically general manager Sean Burke, have made the decision to cut defenseman Dennis Cholowski from their roster.
Cholowski was the 20th overall pick at the 2016 National Hockey League Entry Draft where he was selected by general manager Ken Holland and the Red Wings. The 19-year-old had been playing for the Prince George Cougars of the Western Hockey League prior to being selected as a candidate for Canada's roster and that is presumably where he will return.
This is no slight against Cholowski who is still very young especially for a defenseman, although you can't blame the kid if being unable to represent his country at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games comes as a huge let down.
We wish him the best of luck moving forward with his professional hockey career, we're sure there are great things to come.
