The Detroit Red Wings have agreed to terms with three minor league players, inking Kyle Criscuolo, Kevin Boyle and Riley Barber. Criscuolo and Boyle have both signed one-year deals, while Barber gets a two-year pact.
As the Red Wings reset their organization and get into a full rebuild, they needed players to fill out the depth chart in the minor leagues. All three players have experience in the NHL but shouldn’t be considered full-time options there at this point.
Detroit GM Steve Yzerman has moved out and strictly avoided any long-term deals so that he can build the team the way he wants, with only Dylan Larkin signed through the 2022-23 season. While he added a couple of veterans in Bobby Ryan and Jon Merrill, the Red Wings haven’t gotten into the bigger names on the market.
