The Detroit Red Wings have added some goaltending depth to their system, agreeing to terms with Filip Larsson on a three-year entry-level contract. The deal will kick in for the 2019-20 season, meaning Larsson will not be returning to the University of Denver for his sophomore year.
Larsson’s freshman season came to a disappointing end recently as the Denver Pioneers were ousted from the NCAA Frozen Four by UMass. Larsson had posted shutouts in the opening two rounds of the tournament, and had a .932 save percentage in 22 appearances during the season. The sixth-round pick from 2016 has developed quite nicely in his time in North America, dominating the USHL and NCAA ranks while also bringing home a silver medal at the World Juniors.
