He centered Sam Gagner and Adam Erne in the Wings’ 5-2 loss to the New York Islanders.

Pearson explained what skating in the NHL meant in his hockey journey.

“That for me was the pinnacle of where my whole life has pointed towards and what I’ve worked for my entire career. The Griffins was another stepping stone, and the draft came before that. I don’t think I can really compare anything with the NHL debut itself,” said Pearson.

Pearson faced former Bruins captain Zdeno Chara in the New York lineup. Chara also went up against Pearson’s father, Scott, during his long NHL career.

Pearson’s spent three years on the Red Wings’ American Hockey League affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins, after being drafted 140th overall in 2015.
