2018 Fantasy Outlook
The Red Wings took two forwards in the first round of the 2018 NHL Entry Draft. As surprising as that was given the team's need to fill crater-like holes on the blue line, there's reason to believe that Cholowski is on the verge of reaching hockey's highest level. The crisp-passing defenseman had the chance to at least check out the AHL scene with the Calder Cup-winning Griffins in 2016-17, and he'd end up with 66 points (14 goals, 52 assists) over 69 games between WHL Portland and the Prince George Cougars last season. Various scouts expressed concern about Cholowski scrawny figure upon seeing him drafted 20th overall in 2016, though he's been hard at work bulking up and now stands at 6-foot-1, 200 pounds. At this rate, it shouldn't be long before he's a familiar name across the fantasy hockey landscape. Read Past Outlooks

The Red Wings assigned Cholowski to AHL Grand Rapids on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Cholowski was a healthy scratch for Thursday's game against the Senators, so instead of continuing to watch from the press box, he'll head to the minors and receive top-pairing minutes. The rookie blueliner has been solid for the big club this season, notching 16 points in 52 games while averaging 18:15 of ice time per contest, but he's also registered a team-worst minus-20 rating over that span, so his play in his own end could definitely use some work.
