Organizational Comments:
What GRC says: Summer 2016 Street is an effective 1st line center who has shown a knack for putting up points. The former San Antonio Rampage captain should also bring some intangibles to the room with his leadership and work ethic. A strong two-way player, he should be a capable replacement for the recently departed Andy Miele.
2016-17 Quietly went about his job, scoring points and running the point on the league leading powerplay. He was rewarded with some NHL time with the Wings where he showed he could be a steady and serviceable bottom six player. He was at his best in the playoffs, scoring big goals and leading the team in scoring right up to the last game. Street is a dark horse candidate to take the 13th forward spot in Detroit out of camp, if not he will be back in the middle of the offense for GR.
