Red Wings Sign Goalie Sateri, Likely Bound for Griffins

It looks like the Red Wings have found their replacement for Jared Coreau, signing Finnish goalie Harri Sateri.

Originally drafted by the San Jose Sharks in 2008, Sateri spent last season split between the Florida Panthers and the AHL’s Springfield Thunderbirds.

The move restores some of the organizations depth in goal, with the departures of Jared Coreau, Tom McCollum, and the move of Petr Mrazek at last season’s trade deadline.

Sateri is likely to be the Grand Rapids Griffins’ starter next season, behind Jimmy Howard and Jonathan Bernier on the organizational depth chart.  He could be backed up by Patrik Rybar or Kaden Fulcher, with the other bound for the Toledo Walleye.

The deal is for one year.
