CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Detroit Red Wings head coach Mike Babcock was in Cedar Rapids this weekend for the RoughRiders prospect camp.

While he was checking out some future NHL players, he was also watching his son Michael play on the ice. Michael played for the RoughRiders near the end of last season and is hoping to come back this next season.

Babcock also talked about former RoughRider Justin Abdelkader who is thriving with the Red Wings. He scored 10 goals this past season, a career high. He's improved so much, Babcock has put Abdelkader on the Red Wings top line.
