Red Wings Sign Brunnstrom

The Detroit Red Wings have signed forward Fabian Brunnstrom to a contract, the blog The Production Line reports.

Detroit general manager spoke to the media about signing Brunnstrom last week.

“When we talked about a tryout contract, at the same time we talked about if things did go good in the tryout, what it would take to sign him. What they were thinking contract wise, what we were thinking contract wise. We were on the same page. I’m comfortable with what it’s going to take to get a contract done if we choose to sign him.”

Brunnstrom scored three goals in his first four preseason games while playing on a pro tryout contract. Combined with an injury to Jan Mursak, it was enough to earn a roster spot with the Red Wings.

As per team policy, financial terms of the deal were not announced. The contract is for one year and is a two-way deal.
