Here are the Red Wings Top Performers for the month of November.

#2- Filip Hronek

Filip Hronek had a terrific month of November and has moved into third place in Detroit scoring. Hronek earned two first-star nominations and one third-star nomination in November. During the 13 games, Hronek tied the all-time Detroit record for defensemen scoring goals in four consecutive games. For the month, Hronek scored six goals, eight assists, 14 points, a +7 rating, and 37 shots on goal. In 13 games, Hronek helped solidify the Detroit power play while earning five power-play points. By the end of November, Hronek had played 22 games and had scored six goals, 14 assists, 20 points, a team-best +11 rating, and 52 shots on goal. Hronek is currently in the second year of a three-year contract extension. He has a cap hit of $4.4M annually and can become an RFA at the end of the 2023-2024 season.

#3- Dylan Larkin

Dylan Larkin has another excellent month for the Red Wings. After being the Top Performer in October, Larkin followed that up with three second-star nominations in November. Larkin played all 13 games in November and scored four goals, ten assists, 14 points, a +6 rating, and 51 shots on goal. By the end of the month, Larkin led the Red Wings in assists (16), points (25), and shots on goal (76). Larkin continues to play without a contract extension, and if he remains unsigned can become a UFA next summer.

Looking Ahead to December

The Red Wings started December by losing at home to Vegas on Saturday and defeating the Blue Jackets in Columbus on Sunday. The Red Wings will play in Tampa Bay tonight and will travel to play Florida on Thursday and Dallas on Saturday afternoon to close out the week. The Red Wings play 14 games during December, with five games at home and nine on the road. Detroit will likely need at least seven wins in December to remain in playoff contention in the difficult Eastern Conference.
