Upcoming Downey Deal Confirmed

Aaron Downey will soon sign a two-way deal keeping him in the Detroit Red Wings organization for another season.

The deal will see him make $575,000 with the Red Wings and $100,000 with the Grand Rapids Griffins.

Darren McCarty has been offered an identical deal but has yet to accept.

“The two-way (contracts) are not a reflection on the players,” said assistant general manager Jim Nill. “It’s because of the CBA. We need the flexibility.”
