The Detroit Red Wings have inked another one of their minor league restricted free agents, signing Dominic Turgeon to a one-year contract for 2020-21. While the press release does not include financial details, CapFriendly reports that he will earn $750K at the NHL level and $115K in the minor leagues.
Son of former NHL star Pierre Turgeon, the 24-year-old forward has been part of the Red Wings organization since they used a third-round pick on him in 2014. Making his NHL debut in 2018, the younger Turgeon has now suited up in nine games with the Red Wings, held scoreless in each. Instead, he spends most of his time with the Grand Rapids Griffins where he scored 23 points in 63 games this season.
At this point it’s hard to imagine that Turgeon will ever become an impact player at the NHL level, but he remains a depth option for the team that can fill in if needed.
