Fabia Brunnstrom was impressive enough in his professional tryout (PTO) with the Wings to earn a 1 year, 2 way contract worth $600,000 in the NHL and $105,000 in the AHL. In 99 NHL games, the 6-foot-1, 205-pound Swede racked up 19 goals and 40 points in 2 seasons.
In more Detroit news, Ryan Johnson was released from his PTO, while goaltender Joey MacDonald, defensemen Doug Janik, Garnet Exelby and Logan Pyett, and forward Chris Conner were placed on waivers. If cleared, they will report to the Grand Rapids Griffins of the AHL.
