DETROIT — Andreas Athanasiou wouldn't come right out and say it, but he held out last year for the ice time and the chances he's getting this year.
The Red Wings forward is capitalizing on his opportunities. Athanasiou talked with WXYZ's Brad Galli about his growth on the ice, and his production in his fourth season.
Watch his penalty shot goal from Wednesday's game below:
