Sixth-round pick a right wing

The Red Wings just took Mitchell Callahan with their sixth-round draft pick. Callahan is a right-handed shooting right wing who played for Kelowna of the WHL last season.

Callahan, a native of California, is a long-range prospect. He was 12th on Kelowna in scoring with 14 goals and 27 points in 70 games. He was a plus-11, which ranked 10th on the team.

Last season was the 17-year-old's (he turns 18 on Aug. 17) first in major junior hockey. Callahan showed a physical side with 188 penalty minutes, second on the team, third in the league. He's 5-11 and 175 pounds so let's call him a middleweight fighter.
