Unless they intend to send him to a junior team, this is most puzzling.
By all accounts, he had an unremarkable freshman year in college, an undrafted 5'8" freshman who is the same age beat him out for a spot on the top PP unit for St.Cloud St., he is undersized and the Wings have a plethora of prospects on D scheduled to be pros next season.

Maybe the Wings didn't like the Process being taught at SCS?
Will he be with the Walleye next year?

analysis like this makes me worry...

But once he gets a little stronger, and develops the confidence to be aggressive in attacking up the ice with his tremendous skating ability, he has the raw potential to be a game-changing defenseman at the college level and a very solid second pairing defenseman at the NHL level.

It's from the SBN article. Chris Dilks, the author, did a top 100 NHL prospects in college hockey and had Cholowski #20, which is pretty good. Here's his comments from that article.

It’s easy to understand why the Detroit Red Wings were interested enough in Cholowski to select him in the first round of last year’s NHL Draft. The tall 6’2” defender is a remarkably smooth, graceful skater.

The Red Wings drafted him with the understanding that he would be a bit of a project, and that is still the case. Cholowski has room to add a lot of muscle, which would help make him a more effective defender and improve an unimpressive shot.

But once he gets a little stronger, and develops the confidence to be aggressive in attacking up the ice with his tremendous skating ability, he has the raw potential to be a game-changing defenseman at the college level and a very solid second pairing defenseman at the NHL level.
