More player previews to kick off your Labor Day weekend. It’s another two-fer for you. Last time we doubled up with Ryan Sproul and Robbie Russo on the blue line. Today we’re doubling up with a few forwards, Matt Lorito and Ben Street.

As you can see by the stats above, both Lorito and Street had a cup of coffee in the NHL last year. All of their games came at the very end of the season after the Red Wings were officially out of the playoff race and just playing out the stretch. Each player register an assist.
