The Detroit Red Wings have announced another set of signings today, adding minor league depth in the form of forwards Chris Terry and Wade Megan, defenseman Jake Chelios and goaltender Harri Sateri. Terry has signed a two-year deal, while Megan, Chelios and Sateri have signed on for one year. Salary terms have not yet been disclosed.
Detroit is expected to graduate several players from the Grand Rapids Griffins this season, and needed some veteran additions to keep the minor league team competitive. Terry especially will be a huge boost to the offense, after his 71-point 2017-18 with the Laval Rocket. That was on the worst team in the AHL, something that the Griffins don’t project to be this season.
Sateri, fresh off his NHL debut in Florida, will provide some more goaltending depth for the Red Wings as well. Though they now have Jimmy Howard and Jonathan Bernier at the NHL level, Jared Coreau left the organization and they needed some more experience in the minor leagues. He’ll fight for the full-time starter role there, and try to work his way back up to the NHL should any injuries arise.
