Wings Announce Signing of Olli Maatta

The Detroit Red Wings formally announced the signing of defenseman Olli Maatta on Thursday, a day after news of the deal broke.

The one-year deal reportedly carries a $2.25 million salary cap hit.

I have to say, I was shocked to learn that Maatta is only 27.  It feels like he’s been in the league forever.

Given the one-year term, and the fact that the Wings have a ton of cap space this year, this is a great deal.
